Believe it or not, the lotus pose is most problematic among my patients. Unlike some other poses, it doesn't look tough, and practically everybody did it as a kid. They get lulled into a false sense of complacency. But when you're 50 or 60 years old, the lotus is a lot harder on the joints.

A cunning co-ed con artist was able to dupe some of the nation's top universities - including Harvard and Columbia - into granting her admission by stealing other people's identities, including that of a woman who has been missing for more than seven years, investigators have discovered.

Interesting story on Esther Elizabeth Reed, con woman extraordinaire and possible intelligence agent. I'm using her full name because I know she'll google this. Hi Esther. You should probably turn yourself in.

Teller's Macbeth 
Speaking of Penn and Teller (see below), it looks like Teller will be staging a radical modernization of Macbeth in New Jersey in late 2007.

The premise is that "Macbeth" is Shakespeare's supernatural horror story, and should be done as violently and amazingly as a modern supernatural horror movie. Aaron Posner, the director, and I have been talking about this for three years and this fall hit on this simple goal: to use Shakespeare's images and ideas to scare the living hell out of the audience.
