Checkup to detect cancer

Tuesday, September 17, 2013 by FRED CICETTI Special to The Press in Focus

Q. When seniors gather, it doesn't seem to take long before we get to our aches and pains. You must get more than your share of that.

My friend, Pete, has instituted a "colonoscopy rule." He insists that, if a bunch of us geezers are talking about aches, maladies and visits to the doctors, everyone has to change the subject as soon as someone uses the word colonoscopy. Usually, we switch to grandchildren, which is a lot more fun.

But, while we are on the subject of colons ......

Spinning 'Gold'

Tuesday, September 10, 2013 by BATHSHEBA MONK Special to The Press in Focus

When Barbara Crooker handed me her new book of poems, "Gold," I flipped through the pages as she was talking to me. Then I realized that I didn't hear a thing she said. I couldn't stop reading. That's an endorsement.

Crooker will read poems and sign copies of "Gold," 7 - 8:30 p.m. Sept. 18, Allentown Public Library, 12th and Hamilton streets, Allentown. Cake will be served.

"Gold" is Crooker's fourth book in eight years, which is an almost impossible feat in a field in which it...

'The World's End' does not suffice

Tuesday, September 10, 2013 by PAUL WILLISTEIN in Focus

"It's the end of the world as we know it," to quote the 1987 R.E.M. rock song, and I was feeling fine until near the end of the movie "The World's End."

Then, as in so many movies nowadays, it seems all apocalypse breaks lose, and "World's End" ends in fire.

"Ice would suffice," to quote the 1920 Robert Frost "Fire and Ice" poem.

Instead, director Edgar Wright ("Shaun of the Dead," 2004; "Hot Fuzz," 2007; "Scott Pilgrim vs. the World," 2010), loses his cool.
