LOOKING to beat the heat? Visit a record store -- the aisles are apparently both chilly and empty these days, at least if you use the Nielsen SoundScan album sales chart as a thermometer. Only one CD sold more than 100,000 copies in the U.S. last week -- "Now That's What I Call Music!, Vol. 22," which sold 207,000 copies. Even that had a tinge of disappointment to it; it marked a 48% tumble from the previous week, when "Now" debuted at No. 1 on the chart. Billboard.

HENDERSON, Nev. - With the last of the presidential debates behind him, Mitt Romney barnstormed across the West on Tuesday, telling a crowd in Nevada that the debates had “supercharged” his campaign and dismissing the president as a “status quo” candidate who had yet to reveal his agenda for the next four years. More than 6,000 people crowded into an outdoor amphitheater in Henderson to see Romney and  his running mate, Paul D. Ryan, who had just flown in from Grand Junction, Colo.

Wearing a thick, black and white checkered shirt and dark green tam cap, Snoop Dogg strutted to the stage smoking a blunt. As the rapper took his seat at the end of the stage for the Broadcast Music Inc.'s “How I Wrote That Song” panel, an annual event, he puffed thick smoke rings into the air. The rapper, who now goes by Snoop Lion, passed the blunt to two of his fellow panelists -- rapper Busta Rhymes and rapper/musician B.o.B. -- while songwriters Luke Laird and Evan Bogart generously declined.

Cuban prima ballerina Alicia Alonso will return next month to New York and American Ballet Theatre, one of the places where she got her start in dance seven decades ago, for an early celebration of her 90th birthday. The National Ballet of Cuba said Friday that U.S. authorities have approved a visa for the grande dame of Cuban dance and that she will visit American Ballet Theatre to help mark the organization's 70th anniversary. Word of the visit comes a day after the office of Cuban folk legend Silvio Rodriguez announced plans to perform June 4 at Carnegie Hall, though Washington had yet to approve his visa.

In this country that claims to value hard-working middle-class families, the wealth of those families sank by 40% in recent years, wiping out all the financial gains average Americans had made since the early 1990s. A new Federal Reserve report released Monday shows that the median U.S. family saw its net worth fall from $126,400 in 2007 to $77,300 in 2010. Meanwhile, the rich keep getting richer. It might be enough to spark an uprising if not for the country song ethic that so many Americans live by. I was driving to the newsroom in L.A. this morning when a song by Rodney Atkins came on the radio.
