Clock's ticking

Clock's ticking

Enhanced interrogation: Jack Bauer (Kiefer Sutherland) faces a momentous decision on tonight's action-packed finale of “24: Live Another Day.

Interrogating a suspect with critical information, Bauer must choose from a menu of torture options: the Viet Cong (fingernails pulled out with pliers), the Action Movie Hero (gunshot to the knee), or the Dick Cheney (waterboarding).

Not redeemed: Brazil has completed repairs to the famous Christ the Redeemer statue in Rio de Janeiro.

Now the nation faces a much more difficult repair job: its national esteem after Brazil's poor showing in the World Cup.

Will someone please think of the children: Advising the mother of a sassy 5-year-old, child psychologist John Rosemond observes that kids these days mimic inappropriate behavior they see on TV sitcoms, and shouldn't be allowed to watch anything except the Discovery and History channels.

Because well-balanced children need a steady diet of“Pawn Stars” on History and “Naked and Afraid” on Discovery.
