BRIAN SETZER DVD: DVD review: The Brian Setzer Orchestra, ‘It’s Gonna Rock' - “They told me only 100 or 200 people were gonna show up,” jokes bandleader Brian Setzer during "It’s Gonna Rock ’Cause That’s What I Do," a concert DVD recorded in front of an outdoor crowd of 150,000 at the Montreal Jazz Festival last summer.

AFGHAN NOVEL: Novelist-nurse pens tribute to Afghan people - Even amid Afghanistan’s sandstorms and sweltering heat, nurse Roberta Gately wore brightly colored lipstick when she cared for villagers in the clinic. One day, an elderly woman reached inside her burqa and pulled out a worn tube of tangerine lipstick. “She showed it to me because she knew I wore lipstick,” said Gately of Quincy, Mass. “That was the first step in our friendship, to show that we were alike in some ways.” That gesture became the inspiration for the title of Gately’s first novel, “Lipstick in Afghanistan,” which was released early this month in paperback by Simon & Schuster.

EDITORIAL: No room for compromise on Nancy Pelosi? - A House speaker, whether in Washington or in a state capital, is elected by his or her caucus based on how she delivers what members need. Nancy Pelosi has helped Democrats in the House raise money, get elected, serve their constituents and get their projects enacted into law, so, by that standard, it's no surprise she has the support of most of her colleagues in her announced bid to stand for minority leader. By MetroWest (Mass.) Daily News.
EDITORIAL: Stand up for repeal of 'don't ask, don't tell' -- "Don't ask, don't tell," is hanging by a thread. The American people don't support the ban on gays serving openly in the military. The House has voted to repeal it. A federal court has ruled it unconstitutional. By MetroWest Daily News
SANDER A. DIAMOND: Look for President Obama to reinvent himself - When it comes to the economy, we are all in the same boat and have only one president at a time. By Sander A. Diamond, Messenger Post, N.Y.
KENT BUSH: Even when Sarah Palin loses, she wins - Sarah Palin needs to save some of these wins if she is going to run for president in 2012. Her golden touch has King Midas pouting in a corner. More than 5 million people watched Sarah Palin's reality show - aptly titled "Sarah Palin's Alaska" - Sunday night. That was a record number of viewers for a premier on the TLC network and a huge number for any cable program. By Kent Bush, Augusta (Kan.) Gazette.
CHECKOUT LANE: Treadmill training - With temperatures dropping, you may opt to move your run or walk inside and onto a treadmill. If that means buying one for the home instead of using one at the gym, you should know what to look for when shopping for one. By Ashlee Fairey, The Patriot Ledger, Mass.
* Localization tip: Talk to local treadmill experts in your area, and add or swap out their quotes and tips.
MAKING CENTS: Some ways to keep your adviser honest - Hardly a day goes by without someone asking how they can be sure that their adviser isn't another Bernie Madoff in disguise. While it may be impossible to completely “anti-Madoff'' yourself, there are some huge red flags that should send the message to you loud and clear. By John P. Napolitano, The Patriot Ledger, Mass.
NFL QUICK SHOTS: Why do teams abandon the run on third down? - My favorite NFL play as a kid was a third-down draw play to Walter Payton, Earl Campbell or O.J. Simpson. Now, even the best running backs seldom run on third down. Heck, only three of Adrian Peterson’s 197 carries for Minnesota have been on distances between third-and-3 and third-and-7. Why? By Matt Trowbridge, Rockford (Ill.) Register Star.
