Shakespeare didn’t write in a vacuum. He didn’t sit passively creating whimsical stories. Shakespeare was a student of human behavior and scrutinized the moral and ethical quandaries of man. He believed that vengeance is the prerogative of heaven. Last week I read lots of commentary regarding the demise of Osama bin Laden. I am much too close to this occurrence to be rational about what went down in Abbottabad, Pakistan. Bin Laden attacked my city, murdered thousands of American citizens, many of whom were women and children, and engineered countless terrorist attacks throughout the world.

Al Pacino, Kevin Anderson and Jessica Chastain will appear in a presentation with music of Oscar Wilde's masterpiece "Salome" at the Wadsworth Theatre for 26 performances only, April 14 to May 14. A dramatic production based on the biblical tale of lust and revenge, "Salome" draws the audience into a decadent world of passion and betrayal. The story follows the legend of King Herod and his unbridled desire for Salome, the young daughter of his wife, Herodias. Indifferent to his advances, Salome longs for the love of the imprisoned John the Baptist.

Part 2 ? Forgiveness is about forgiving ourselves and those who have wronged us. It is about rediscovering our strengths and developing our capacity to accept, understand ourselves and others. If you make the choice not to forgive, you destroy yourself more than the other persons, even if they don?t acknowledge their transgression. Their acknowledgement does make it easier to forgive them. We may be so caught up in the past that we lose the present. Forgiveness is a decision to release thoughts of revenge and resentments.

LA CAÑADA - Playing its fourth game in a week and the second in consecutive days, there was a chance that the Flintridge Prep girls' basketball team may have lacked energy for its Prep League showdown with Rio Hondo at home on Friday. However, the Rebels didn't have to look far for motivation, considering the importance of the game and the fact that they were out for some payback. “We wanted to get revenge because they beat us last time, so that kind of fueled us,” said Flintridge Prep junior Lacy Coan.

LA CAÑADA-FLINTRIDGE - Revenge was measured in trophy size and prominence in Saturday's 32nd annual La Cañada High School Tournament. A day after suffering its first defeat of the season, the host La Cañada High boys' soccer team exacted a small measure of vengeance in topping Glendale, 4-0, in the tournament championship game. “We wanted to strike while the iron was hot and while the loss was fresh in our minds,” said La Cañada Coach Alex Harrison, whose Spartans (9-1-2)

Down by seven points with 3:40 to play, the Glendale High football team had time for a game-winning drive. As it had the entire second half, La Cañada's defense had to make a stop. It came in the form of a bone-crushing tackle for no gain from Spartans linebacker Michael Greenberg, who also had a third-quarter interception in the game, on fourth-and-two at La Cañada's own 31. PHOTOS: Glendale vs. La Canada non-league football “I told my lineman, Guillermo Padilla, to go right because I knew it was coming inside,” Greenberg said.

SOUTH PASADENA - Determined to learn from its mistakes, the La Canada High girls' basketball team reminded itself of them coming into Thursday's Rio Hondo League showdown at South Pasadena High. The Spartans did that by watching their painful 25-point loss to the Tigers on Jan. 23 before Thursday's night game, which would decide the league champion. “The girls said they were just fired up last night and knew what they had to do,” said La Cañada Coach Tamar Hill, whose team held off the home team for a 43-34 victory to win the league title.

SAN MARINO - It isn't often that finishing second earns a louder and more elated cheer than taking first. However, after the conclusion of Thursday afternoon's Rio Hondo League cross-country finals, La Cañada High's Sonja Cwik couldn't help but holler a bit before hugging teammates. That's because the junior, who finished second individually, led the Spartans' reconquest of the Rio Hondo League title as La Cañada defeated defending league champion South Pasadena, 32-37. “I'm just really happy and am so excited.
