If you liked “Casino Royale” you’re going to love “Quantum of Solace.” Forget the weird title taken from an Ian Fleming short story. All you need to know is that Quantum is an international cabal of evil-doer’s much in the tradition of Smersh and Spectre. Its purpose is sinister and its immediate intent is to corner the market on that most precious of all terrestrial products, water. This politically correct plot point is a nod to global warming and the multiple shots of infinite vistas of dry, throat-choking sand drive home the message.

Warm weather, classic cars, and local rockers Misplaced Priorities brought out hundreds of locals to Music in the Park this past Sunday. The free concert series had an added bonus this week, featuring a classic car show. “Oh man, I just love these old cars,” said Jim Gibbons of Pasadena, pointing at a 1967 Cobra Mustang. “They just don’t make them like that anymore!” Some came for the cars, while others came for the music. Misplaced Priorities is a classic rock band from La Cañada, featuring Mandy Boesche, Jeanne Nortao, Frank Dvoracek, Steve Stathatos, Rich Myers, Craig Windsor and Tom Reynolds.

Governor Arnold Schwarzenegger has put another hot button issue on the budget agenda, calling for a reduction in the number of paid holidays for state workers. The state is facing at least an $11 billion deficit in the budget just approved two months ago, and the governor has called the outgoing legislature into lame duck session to try to deal with the crisis. With the special session ending Dec. 1 when the new legislature is seated, the likelihood of action this session is fairly remote.

On Friday, the sun was out, the flag on La Cañada High’s campus waved minimally, and a group of teachers, students, parents and supporters were out in front of the school, wearing pink and holding signs, demonstrating their distaste for education budget cuts, specifically layoffs. Friday was the day that teachers and substitutes all over California received pink slips in their mailboxes, informing them they were casualties. “It’s a statewide thing,” said La Cañada teacher Ben Powers in his pink button-up shirt.

Friday, March 1, was a sad day for our town. A teenager died on the campus of La Cañada High School. Therapist Linda Goldman says, “Most teens have a need to tell and retell their story. They need a safe, nonjudgmental environment to express themselves. They also may choose their own way to express grief, as they are often not willing or able to express feelings to family members and may choose peers instead.” (Goldman, “Responding to Teen Grief” TAPS Magazine, Fall 2011) The death of a teenager at LCHS on a beautiful March afternoon, confounds us all. It is important to respond to the needs of the family of this youngster.

I've always been a seeker, searching for meaning and asking that timeless question, "What makes life significant?" I've contemplated the perplexities of existence, trying to understand moments of euphoria as though they were the result of a simple mathematical equation easily reproduced. For me, two plus two has never been four. Life should be lived, not analyzed. Regardless of understanding, the magical play continues; and it is up to us to contribute a verse. The question is not one of understanding, but "What will our verse be?"

I knew I'd be back. Not because all roads lead to Rome, but because each time I visit, I throw a coin into the Trevi Fountain to ensure my return to the Eternal City. I have been to Rome many times. With each visit I've experienced its magnificence through a different prism. In my youth, Rome was “La Dolce Vita,” in which wine and song were aphrodisiacs for a depleted soul. Other visits led toward art, history and losing myself in the labyrinth of three millennia. According to Ecclesiastics, there's a time and place for everything under heaven.

All week I had a strange feeling, like something was about to happen. I hadn’t felt that way since my days of debauchery hanging in Lucy’s Tiger Den in Bangkok, Thailand. I was younger then and was both foolish and fearless of heart, inflictions often found in youth. For a few days I noticed an unusual scurry of activity and conversation between Kaitzer and Sabine. Something was in the wind; I could smell it! While sitting at dinner, Kaitzer asked me, “Can you take Sabine to the dance at LCHS on Thursday?
