* (out of four)   When the body mass index (BMI) attaches the “overweight” tag to LeBron James--who's made up of approximately 1 billion percent muscle - clearly the form of measurement has a bug in its system. Documentarian Darryl Roberts, who began his career in Chicago radio, is right about that. With “The Thin Commandments,” his follow-up to the 2008 doc “America the Beautiful” that told us what we already knew about our country's fixation on physical appearance, Roberts gets everything else wrong.

Being punched in the face for an iPhone is not pleasant. Regrettably, I'm one of the growing number of victims who can say this from personal experience. A couple of weeks ago, I was mugged on a quiet afternoon in my cozy Old Irving Park neighborhood. I made the mistake of entering what I call The Smart Phone Zone - in which I tried to walk, listen to a podcast and tweet at the same time. Meanwhile, two large men in hoodies silently sprinted up to me from behind. Before I had a chance to turn around, one of them began punching me in the head and knocking me to the ground while the other kicked...

There are two ways to look at the latest teaser for "The Strain," FX's upcoming horror series based on the books by Guillermo del Toro and Chuck Hogan. Take it from the perspective of the humans living in New York, and all those body bags is not a good thing. But from the point of view of the vampires about to unleash hell on the city--hey, yay! As FX says, "His army will rise this summer. " But either way you lean, "The Strain" looks like it will give us some mighty good frights this summer.

If recent data is correct, though, holiday travel in general is becoming something more Americans are deciding they can - or have to - do without. "Holiday travel has been one of the most resilient traditions of Americans," said Rick Garlick, senior director of consulting and strategic implementation for marketing company Maritz.

There were no track marks on his arms and he didn't find his dealer on a street corner in a shady neighborhood. A white-coated professional sold him drugs, and he paid with a credit card. But this 35-year-old North Side man became as addicted as any heroin junkie, even though the pills ruling his life were legal. "I thought I was the only one in the whole city that was going through this. That's how quiet this epidemic is," said the man, whose name RedEye has agreed to withhold.
