An entrepreneur called me the other day for some brainstorming. It seems that he discovered his company had been billing a client half of what he should have been billed.

I believe that this article ("Tossed paper causes incident at Canyon," published April 1) is way overblown.
Brian Charles' front page article (April 1) regarding the "tossed paper controversy" at Canyon High School raises more questions than the incident itself.

You can tell a great deal about a wine store from the labels it carries. Some stores strive to carry big name brands that consumers easily recognize, while others embrace the challenge of stocking their racks with lesser-known labels. In a store devoted exclusively to wine and wine accessories, you are more likely to discover lesser-known boutique wines that don't enjoy the benefit of large marketing budgets and advertising dollars to promote them.

The most charitable thing we can say about the otherwise insufferable "Observe and Report" is that it shows Seth Rogen has some range.
"Hannah Montana: The Movie" just shouldn't be analyzed from an adult perspective - which, frankly, is irrelevant.
