There were moments of silence observed before the starts of both the National League and American League championship series last October. As ordered by baseball's commissioner, Bud Selig, those moments were in memory of Ken Caminiti. It might even be said that baseball's new attitude about steroid use began with those Caminiti moments. Look, maybe the prospect of impotence and urinary tract pain doesn't scare you. Maybe you're certain you'll never develop heart, kidney or liver disease.

Thelma White, whose portrayal of a hard-boiled addiction queen in the 1936 movie "Reefer Madness" was largely forgotten until the film resurfaced in the 1970s as a cult classic, died of pneumonia Tuesday at the Motion Picture and Television Hospital in Woodland Hills. She was 94. Born in 1910, White was a carnival performer as a toddler, progressed to vaudeville, radio and movies, then worked as an agent and producer for many years.

There is something strangely out-of-time about "Reefer Madness: The Movie Musical" (premiering tonight on Showtime), a film version of the stage adaptation of a 1936 anti-marijuana exploitation film, which was an Equity-waiver hit here in 1999 and 2000 before an ill-fated off-Broadway opening four days after 9/11. "Why here?" One looks at it and wonders, "Why now?" even as one has a pretty good time watching it.

Actor David Hasselhoff, the "America's Got Talent" judge known for his playfully Hoff-ful puns, has listed his longtime family home in Encino at $4,195,000. The 8,947-square-foot Southern Colonial, with five bedrooms and five bathrooms, sits on nearly 1.5 acres entered through double gates. A tree-lined drive leads to the two-story home, which has a two-story great room with soaring ceilings looking out on the backyard and a boulder-lined swimming pool with spa. There is a formal dining room, a screening room, two guesthouses and a tennis court.

So I get this call from Hollywood, and as you might expect, the producers want me to star in a football movie, "The Game Plan." They tell me they're going to fly me to Boston, put me in a fancy hotel, food, wine, makeup, wardrobe, the whole bit. Right away I figure it's some movie starring Salma Hayek, and she knows who she wants to play her love interest, but then they tell me they're just looking for someone to play the role of a sportswriter.
