Josh Kleinbaum Edward Oleksy and his girlfriend, Dawn Guarnera, had never been to A Noise Within before Sunday, even though they live just blocks away. So when Oleksy found out about the theater's annual Victorian Tea, he knew he had the perfect Christmas present. On Sunday, Oleksy and Guarnera munched on hors d'oeuvres, drank some tea and then watched the quintessential Scrooge, Ed Asner, star in a reading of Charles Dickens' "A Christmas Carol." "We've passed this place so many times, so we decided to come and see what it's about," Oleksy said during the tea, before the Dickens reading.

The myth is that lemmings are mindless creatures that jump off cliffs to their deaths because they are, ironically, rodent copy-cats, each following the being in front of them even to their own demise. But that’s not exactly true. Scientists tell us that many Republicans and virtually all “tea party” followers probably have the same follow-the-spin, mindless propensity that biologists used to think caused the lemmings to march to their own ends. Turns out, lemmings self-thinned their own herds when their groups became overpopulated.

ANI AMIRKHANIAN Most Armenian family visits with relatives and other extended family usually consist of long conversations that go beyond "happy" subject matters such as the weather or a new car. Often the topic of conversation is quick to change into the more unpleasant subjects of illness and death -- the two primary themes of any conversation that take place in an Armenian household. Those participating in the conversation often remind others as to who is ill, why they became ill and what the potential diagnosis of their sickness is. No details are omitted and opinions about the ailing individual are expressed.
