Where do you start? Do you start with the accused, Jerry Sandusky, the former assistant football coach at Penn State, who's been charged with abusing children as those at the university where he was employed did nothing? Do you start with the alleged victims, boys as young as 8 years old, who will be scarred for as long as they live, longer even than football coach Joe Paterno's storied career? Do you start with the coach himself, a man so revered they call him "Pa," who didn't do enough to stop it?

Butterflies and mushrooms aren't just two things you might find on a frolic through a forest. They're also two very distinct kinds of popcorn that Popcorn Factory Chief Popcornologist Marty Dennis said serve as the base on which the company's Chicago-style flavors are built. The company's saltier flavors are made with butterfly popcorn, which much like an actual butterfly, needs to be handled with care because it's relatively fragile. "Butterfly popcorn, when it pops, it's kind of like the popcorn that you have in microwave bags," Dennis explained.

Think it's hard to remind your roommate to do the dishes? In many cooperatives, repeat household problems are discussed and resolved via a consensus model, similar to the one popularized by the Occupy Wall Street movement. Stone Soup Ashland House's handbook for members details the consensus process they follow at regular meetings, which determines who gets to speak and when, and what it takes to get an idea supported or denied. Some key guidelines: -No decision is final until everyone in the meeting feels comfortable with it and is able to implement it without resentment.

Northwestern.xxx will soon be a real destination for web browsers, but it won't be a place for peddling porn. Northwestern University has joined other schools in registering for the adult-oriented domain extension before the names go on sale to the public Tuesday. "We have no intentions of creating a site that would reside on that domain," said Northwestern spokesman Alan Cubbage, adding that the purchase is a way of "protecting Northwestern's good name. " He declined to say how much the university paid for...

Character, not characters. I see the Bears stunned no one and went with Phil Emery as their new general manager. Oh, I can see why. Look at these stunning credentials: Character. Hardworking. Honesty. Integrity. Hardworking. Character. Yeah, OK. I'm really sick of that guy. Sound familiar? Here are others who had those traits: Dave Wannstedt, Dick Jauron, Mark Hatley, Jerry Angelo, Jack Pardee, Neill Armstrong, Abe Gibron and Jim Dooley. I'd rather have the guy nobody likes but will kick some tail (yes, that's Mike Ditka.

I'm afraid, Illinois college basketball fans, that it's come to this. It's time to go all-in. Or, put another way, time to go all-scumbag. Look, we just got turned down by Shaka Smart because he was actually afraid to come here and recruit out of Chicago. Hey, if he's afraid, we don't want him. But we need someone. We need … that guy. Oh, he's out there. I don't have a name, but I'll describe him for you. He's slick. Dresses real nice. Great, great talker.

*** (out of four) After my “RoboCop” screening, one moviegoer commented that he preferred the remake to the 1987 original. That makes two of us. Where its lighter yet more violent predecessor let straightforward revenge dominate the story, the new, PG-13 “RoboCop” thinks and feels. It has a lot more setup - the movie is practically all middle - but added payoffs too. While exciting at times, this is an action movie in search of more than a body count. Leave your bloodlust at home.

In light of Lance Armstrong's Oprah interview and a kerfuffle over Ray Lewis and deer antler spray, the topic of performance-enhancing drugs has been in the news with renewed vigor. It has culminated with this overwrought, hyper-ventilating column by Bill Simmons' of Grantland , which has instigated my biggest intellectual backlash to the whole purity-in-sports movement to date. As regular readers of this column know, I adore Simmons and his gargantuan run-on columns and entertaining-as-actual-sports podcast.

So, I had a tryst with a married man. I thought better of it eventually and ended it, but his wife still found out. And recently, she wrote me an email. I don't know his wife at all. What is my responsibility here? Do I write her back? Should I stay the f**k out of it (even though clearly I'm already involved)? - Conflicted Ex-mistress Stay out of it. No good could come from corresponding with his wife, and it will further complicate an already messy and fraught situation.

Zero stars (out of four) Without referencing early 1990s rappers Kris Kross, I see no way to write a less-menacing tagline than the one on the poster for “Alex Cross”: “Don't ever cross Alex Cross.” This thriller plays like the copy of a copy of a '90s flick, so that what was once gripping becomes vague and unintentionally funny. As detective Dr. Alex Cross - that's really what people call him, due to his psych degree - Tyler Perry appears uninformed that movie cops usually deliver some measure of coolness or...
