Bobby Roth People always want to know if this thing is so great, if Transcendental Meditation is so great why does it cost money, why isn’t it free? There are a couple of answers to that. First of all Transcendental Meditation can’t be taught out of a book. This isn’t something that simple or simplistic. To learn Transcendental Meditation it’s taught one to one by a trained teacher and it’s taught over time. Four days of initial instruction of about an hour or an hour and half each day and then there’s a follow up program. So in order to teach people Transcendental Meditation we at the David Lynch Foundation and the Transcendental Meditation organization pay the Transcendental Meditation teachers a living wage.
Red Sox manager Bobby Valentine said he has apologized to third baseman Kevin Youkilis for comments he made Sunday, in which he questioned Youkilis’ physical and emotional commitment. Valentine, speaking before Boston’s Patriots Day game against Tampa Bay — a 1-0 Rays win — said Youkilis approached him Monday morning. Valentine said he “totally apologized.” “I don’t know if he accepted my apology. It was sincere,” he said. “The last thing in the world I would want him to think is that this was anything but an answer to a question that seemed like the question was jabbing at him. I was just trying to smooth it over. I guess I didn’t.” Valentine said he thought Youkilis had visited his office wanting to talk about his sore groin muscle, but instead brought up the comments. Youkilis was not in Monday’s starting lineup, replaced at third by Nick Punto, and did not enter the game. Valentine said he would use Youkilis as a pinch hitter if needed, but that didn’t happen. Earlier Monday, Youkilis told reporters he was “surprised” and “confused” by Valentine’s comments, which were made Sunday before Boston’s win over the Rays and aired Sunday on WHDH-TV’s “SportsXTra.” “I don’t think he’s as physically or emotionally into the game as he has been in the past for some reason,” Valentine said Sunday. “But [on Saturday] it seemed, you know, he’s seeing the ball well, got those two walks, got his on-base percentage up higher than his batting average, which is always a good thing …

Funniest scene from the movie.
Fabulously offbeat and refreshingly upbeat, this lovable film gets friendly with the natives of the Salton Sea an inland ocean of massive fish kills, rotting resorts, and 120 degree nights located just minutes from urban Southern California. This award-winning film from directors Chris Metzler and Jeff Springer details the rise and fall of the Salton Sea, from its heyday as the “California Riviera” where boaters and Beach Boys mingled in paradise to its present state of decaying, forgotten ecological disaster. From wonderland to wasteland, PLAGUES & PLEASURES ON THE SALTON SEA captures a place far more interesting than the shopping malls and parking lots of suburban America, a wacky world where a beer-swilling Hungarian Revolutionary, a geriatric nudist, and a religious zealot building a monument to God all find solace and community.
Crisply and hilariously narrated by oddball auteur John Waters, and featuring music by desert lounge rockers Friends of Deans Martinez, PLAGUES & PLEASURES ON THE SALTON SEA melds high camp with stark realism, offering both a sobering message about the consequences of tampering with nature and a heart-warming tale of individualism.
DVD Features: Audio Commentaries with Filmmakers and Salton Sea Locals; Lost Interviews; Deleted Scenes; LEONARD & THE MOUNTAIN Short Film; MIRACLE IN THE DESERT Real Estate Promotional Film; FRUIT OF THE VINE Vignette on the Salton Sea Skateboarding Scene; LSD A GO GO Short Film; CONSUMING FIRE Music Shot at the Salton Sea; Filmmaker Biographies; Short Film on Friends of Dean Martinez

The extraordinary life of Jackie Robinson is illuminated as never before in this full-scale biography by Arnold Rampersad, who was chosen by Jack’s widow, Rachel, to tell her husband’s story, and was given unprecedented access to his private papers. We are brought closer than we have ever been to the great ballplayer, a man of courage and quality who became a pivotal figure in the areas of race and civil rights.
Born in the rural South, the son of a sharecropper, Robinson was reared in southern California. We see him blossom there as a student-athlete as he struggled against poverty and racism to uphold the beliefs instilled in him by his mother–faith in family, education, America, and God.
We follow Robinson through World War II, when, in the first wave of racial integration in the armed forces, he was commissioned as an officer, then court-martialed after refusing to move to the back of a bus. After he plays in the Negro National League, we watch the opening of an all-American drama as, late in 1945, Branch Rickey of the Brooklyn Dodgers recognized Jack as the right player to break baseball’s color barrier–and the game was forever changed.
Jack’s never-before-published letters open up his relationship with his family, especially his wife, Rachel, whom he married just as his perilous venture of integrating baseball began. Her memories are a major resource of the narrative as we learn about the severe harassment Robinson endured from teammates and opponents alike; about death threats and exclusion; about joy and remarkable success. We watch his courageous response to abuse, first as a stoic endurer, then as a fighter who epitomized courage and defiance.
We see his growing friendship with white players like Pee Wee Reese and the black teammates who followed in his footsteps, and his embrace by Brooklyn’s fans. We follow his blazing career: 1947, Rookie of the Year; 1949, Most Valuable Player; six pennants in ten seasons, and 1962, induction into the Hall of Fame.
But sports were merely one aspect of his life. We see his business ventures, his leading role in the community, his early support of Martin Luther King Jr., his commitment to the civil rights movement at a crucial stage in its evolution; his controversial associations with Eisenhower, Kennedy, Nixon, Humphrey, Goldwater, Nelson Rockefeller, and Malcolm X.
Rampersad’s magnificent biography leaves us with an indelible image of a principled man who was passionate in his loyalties and opinions: a baseball player who could focus a crowd’s attention as no one before or since; an activist at the crossroads of his people’s struggle; a dedicated family man whose last years were plagued by illness and tragedy, and who died prematurely at fifty-two. He was a pathfinder, an American hero, and he now has the biography he deserves.
