In News Today . . .

The National Institute of Health reports that depression affects approximately 1.5 million young adults in the United States. But of those individuals, fewer than half seek treatment.

In Opinion Today . . .

I got a kick out of the article in Tuesday's Houston Chronicle about "The Genuwhine Article". It's true that we, the so-called most advanced society in the world, are the biggest bunch of whiners on the planet. Whining is when someone spills out his or her wants and problems with no intention whatsoever of doing anything about it, or worse yet, trying to "shame" someone else into fixing things for them. It's something we are all guilty of on occasion.

In Entertainment Today . . .

Random Hearts is a drawn-out, laborious disappointment. The intense and captivating previews portrayed in the commercials paint a very different picture of this melodramatic, sluggish film.

In Sports Today . . .

The game of the week in C-USA, and one of the more interesting games in the nation, is Southern Mississippi at No. 16 East Carolina in a battle for C-USA supremacy.
