There aren’t any family-friendly movies opening this week, but older teens and adults might find something they like. Opening in wide release are “Red,” a PG-13 movie starring Bruce Willis, John Malkovich, Morgan Freeman, Helen Mirren, Mary-Louise Parker and others; the R-rated and inappropriate-for-youngsters “Jackass 3D”; and the R-rated “Conviction,” starring Hilary Swank.
Today is World Food Day, and many places are holding food drives and other events to mark the occasion. Check the paper for listings, or go to the official U.S. site of the day, www.worldfooddayusa.org.
Today is Mulligan Day, the day of second chances. The day stems from the golf term “mulligan,” which means a free do-over. If you do something stupid today, ask for a mulligan!
Sunday marks the beginning of Teen Read Week 2010. This year’s theme is “Books with Beat @ your library," and most libraries will be holding special events today and throughout the week. One way to celebrate the week is to hold a book swap with family and friends. You also can let us know what your favorite teen book is.
Don’t forget the sports action this weekend. NCAA football will be in action on Saturday, NFL action kicks off Sunday and the baseball playoffs are throughout the weekend. Check the official sites for schedules and more.
