The Lake Elsinore Storm has planned a salute to Tom Cruise tonight during its California League baseball game. Besides giving away a Cruise bobblehead -- make that a "bobble-couch," depicting the star in full Oprah couch-jumping mode -- the San Diego Padres' Class-A affiliate will celebrate the "silent birth" of Tom and Katie Holmes' baby, Suri, with a "silent inning," during which no batters will be announced and no music played.

I just wanted to say thank you, Rick Porter, for confirming my own beliefs about singlehood, and underlining the fact that no one can complete anyone! ("Please, Friends, I Don't Need You to Complete Me," Jan. 29) I, too, firmly believe that we can only be truly complete within ourselves, and by ourselves. The company of another is certainly a nice addition -- companionship is a wonderful thing -- but seeking a partner for a relationship with the hopes that the person can make you whole is a fallacy, and relationships based on that logic don't have much hope of lasting, because that person can never do for you what you need to do for yourself.

With Tom Cruise (left), being all he should be in the title role, Cameron Crowe's 1996 hit shows how to use Hollywood stars and traditional romantic comedy forms to build something satisfying and personal. This is a wholly unexpected film, as heady and surprising in its humor as in its emotional texture.

Clothestime Inc. creditors aren't the only ones clamoring for someone to "show me the money." The popular line from "Jerry Maguire," the recent feature film starring Tom Cruise and Cuba Gooding Jr., was repeated again and again during a U.S. Bankruptcy Court hearing Thursday in Santa Ana. The hearing was held to determine which reorganization plan was going to be forwarded to creditors of Anaheim-based Clothestime for approval.
