With so many entries in his day planner, it's hard to believe that Pollard has any time left to merely talk about them. But he found a couple of moments to take a breather and discuss his current activities (and his hopes for the Bengals this season)..

"(Touring) again in America is actually quite refreshing," Harris said says in a recent phone interview. "You go back to basics again.

What a difference to read a newspaper column about public schools that’s favor able to the staff, the core of the schools (“School Funding Fight in the Burbs,” issue of Sept. 10).

As a casual listener of Hip- Hop since the late ‘90’s, a few things have resonated with me. Way back then, homo sexual artists were either non existent, totally closeted and/or intimidated. Then there appeared staunch anti-gay resolves in many artists’ public personas and lyrics, such as early Eminem, Ja Rule, DMX and Common.

Before the public adoration of narcotics. Before the high-profile relationships with B-list actresses. Before his festive, ornithological stage apparel. Manson was described as being well mannered and easy to talk to. He and the rest of the band were respectful and courteous.
