HOME AND FAMILY

Part 2

Planning for a slimmer,
trimmer you

[OCT. 14, 2000]  Swimsuit season is over. Cool weather is fast approaching, and, believe it or not, the holiday season is only a few months away.  As the hours of sunshine decrease and the degrees dip into the lower double digits, it’s only natural that people stay inside more and tend to be less active.

MOVIES & VIDEOS

"Rules of Engagement"

[OCT. 14, 2000]  Rules of Engagement is a different kind of war movie. First of all, it is about a new kind of war - urban conflict. It depicts the other side of war, the human side, where mistakes in judgment are admitted and sometimes even prosecuted. And Rules of Engagement is also a movie about politics. And politics never seem to change.
