The gift that Jason Sherr helped give to the Newport Beach Public Library this year can be measured in dollars and cents -- for the record, it came to $405,609. But with so many people potentially using the library, it could be considered priceless. Last week, the Newport Beach Public Library Foundation announced that in the 2003-04 fiscal year it had doubled the amount of funds it raised. In doing so, it set an all-time record. The bulk of the money came from a $250,000 gift from an anonymous community member, but the foundation also solicited thousands more from corporations and other wealthy providers.

With so much wrong in the world today — the Dodgers' disintegration and Arnold's improprieties, Weiner's lewd tweets and Sarah's revisionist history — I've been looking for something uplifting to read to take my mind off the dark and destructive forces swirling about us like tornados in Massachusetts. What better than the final words of a young father dying a slow death to pancreatic cancer? A few years late, but I am reading “The Last Lecture,” by Randy Pausch. As you may recall, Pausch was a computer science professor at Carnegie Mellon University who was asked to partake in the school's “last lecture” series, wherein an instructor gives the hypothetical final lecture of their career.
