Of all the wines that are available, Spanish wines are some of our favorites. Every sip is a new discovery. Spanish wines offer the wine lover the best of both Old and New World style - plush and silky but not too jammy.

Review: 'Fighting'

I like the way the personalities are allowed to upstage the plot in "Fighting," a routine, three-act fight story that creates uncommonly interesting characters.

Review: 'Soloist'

"The Soloist" has all the elements of an uplifting drama, except for the uplift. The story is compelling, the actors are in place, but I was never sure what the filmmakers wanted me to feel about it. Based on a true story, it stars Jamie Foxx as Nathaniel Ayers, a homeless man who was once a musical prodigy, and Robert Downey Jr. as Steve Lopez, the Los Angeles Times columnist who writes a column about him, bonds with him, makes him famous, becomes discouraged by the man's mental illness and - what? Hears him play great music?

Teenagers who cut hurt everyone

Whitney first felt the pain of isolation when her family moved to the Santa Clarita Valley. Everyone else in the family was enthusiastic about the move, but not Whitney. Always the introvert, she wasn't as outgoing as her older brother, who easily consumed all of the attention. Neither did she feel as smart as her younger sister, who she describes as a weekly academic-award winner.

Real adults don’t give kids alcohol

Joanne and Tony throw the best keg parties in town. The beer flows and a designated teen collects car keys at the door. Teens mill around, shouting over the pounding music, hugging and "high-fiving" Joanne and Tony. They are so popular, they could have been voted Prom King and Queen.
