Gary Moskowitz SOUTHEAST GLENDALE -- Asia Wilcox, a senior at Glendale High School, is hoping an epidemic will break out at school in June. Asia, 17, hopes the epidemic will be a willingness among the school's student population to help provide food for area residents who don't have any. Asia is one of 153 students in five ceramics classes at Glendale High who are handcrafting ceramic bowls. In June, the bowls will be used to raise money for Los Angeles area residents who don't have money to buy food.

Karen S. Kim NORTHWEST GLENDALE -- Most of them had probably never felt the deep pang of hunger that comes from not knowing where their next meal is coming from. Most of them had probably never felt the nausea and dizziness that comes from not having eaten in days. And most of them had probably never experienced how delicious a warm, cooked meal can taste to them after they've been hungry for so long. But on Sunday, more than 200 local residents knew what it felt like to walk for the benefit of others.

Hotel and restaurant workers brought their fight from Orange County to the Walt Disney Co. headquarters in Burbank this week, staging a spirited rally and public hunger strikes to highlight a bitter two-year contract dispute over health care.

Gary Ross's adaptation of the first of Suzanne Collins's “Hunger Games” books was both a critical and commercial smash, ending up with last year's third-highest domestic gross (which currently makes it 14 on the all-time list). It made Jennifer Lawrence a star, guaranteed the filming of the remaining two books, and pleased most everyone. Nonetheless, Ross didn't sign on for No. 2, and the producers brought in Francis Lawrence - best known for Will Smith's “I Am Legend” and presumably no relation to his like-named star - to direct “The Hunger Games: Catching Fire.” It seems clear that he was asked to follow Ross's template closely; if there are any major stylistic changes, they're pretty subtle.

Every dollar Disney won't get at the box office for the $250-million “John Carter” will probably end up in the pockets of Lionsgate and the other entities behind “The Hunger Games” (which allegedly cost less than half as much). The first volume of Suzanne Collins' series about a plucky girl in a dystopic future arrived just as Stephenie Meyer's “Twilight” saga - about a plucky girl in a lycanthropic (and vampiric) present - was winding down, tapping into the same female tween/teen audience.

Keeping the kids entertained is a parent's primary job. It ranks higher than feeding and cleanliness. In the throes of a good time, hunger and head lice are but minor annoyances. With a free day, where could the wife and I take the kids without passports, plane tickets or extended lines of credit? Hollywood. At least we wouldn't need passports or plane tickets. A day trip to the entertainment capital of the world is a perfect way to kill a few hours so long as we return with both girls.
