While I may not agree with the entire spiritual underpinning of "Lent," I liked the idea of participating in it as a personal-growth exercise, in line with my previous efforts to read Cats in the original feline, or to get taller.
This just may be Lindsay Lohan's lowest moment.
Imagine writer-director Paul Schrader's delight when The New York Times Magazine, the bastion of cultural taste and respectability, called to write a piece about his latest directorial effort, The Canyons.
From one side, we will hear demands for incarceration; from the other, outcries for treatment. While I do not know Ms. Lohan or the details of her case, I do know that for offenders who are addicted, neither jail or treatment alone works. Drug Courts do.
