Campaign 2012, Sound & Fury Edition, has reached DEFCON level 2, with no sign of a letup any time soon. It's become vacuous enough to have Americans demanding something better (nominations accepted, see below) but first, for those who  were misguided enough to be enjoying your  vacation, Politics Now recaps what the politicians have been turning into an endless summer: First, Mitt Romney declined to release most of his tax returns, which provoked debate over whether Sen. Harry Reid, the “dirty liar,” should release his own taxes.

The remarkable story of the Holocaust-era formation of the Palestine Symphony Orchestra by famed, Polish-born violinist Bronislaw Huberman is engrossingly recounted in the documentary "Orchestra of Exiles. " Writer-producer-director Josh Aronson (2000's Oscar-nominated "Sound and Fury") tracks Huberman's early life as a child prodigy performing violin concerts across Europe through his adult years - transformed as they were by the rise of Nazi Germany. Stirred by the mounting ravages of anti-Semitism, Huberman, from 1935 to 1939, heroically engineered the emigration of a gifted group of Jewish musicians out of Europe and into then-Palestine.

Lotsa response to critics zeroing in last week on Oscar nomination oversights and unworthy (in their view) nominees. Like Siskel and Ebert wanting to throw in their 2-cents worth (and plug their annual Oscar show, which is airing on KABC this weekend, including today at 5 p.m.). And KTLA's Tom Hatten calling to remind that his CBS Radio Network series of one-minute Oscar segments continues to air through Monday.

William Kahrl is the latest in the long line of Rose Bird bashers. He doesn't like her because he claims that she has put herself above "the ignorant mob." To read Kahrl one would think that Bird has manufactured the whole campaign against her reconfirmation herself. Does Kahrl really believe that Bird embraces her critics with open arms because this assures her a glorious "martyrdom"? With this kind of bizarre logic working against her, Rose Bird is in deeper trouble than I thought.

Like every other chronicler of the '60s, Goldstein mentioned not one word about the disillusionment of that segment of the "older generation" which didn't automatically disapprove of change or turn thumbs-down on behavior of "the kids." There were many of us--already in our mid-40s--who hoped that just maybe the "younger generation" had found some answers that had eluded us; and in our way we were just as revved up--without ever resorting to acid or psychedelics--as students at Berkeley or attendees at a Doors concert.

As members of Jodeci, K-Ci and JoJo Hailey primarily stuck to well-trod terrain: faithless sweethearts, dashed romantic hopes, the inevitable goodbyes. On their second project on their own, the brothers still sound like graduates from the Bobby Womack School of Wounded Lovers. "Fee Fie Foe Fum" is an angry, finger-pointing accusation aimed at a creepin' honey, and K-Ci & JoJo handle it like true, old-school soul shouters. The rest of the album isn't so invigorating.

Our house is so loud that it's beginning to kill off the landscaping. Shrubs are dying, and there's this ring — almost a solar corona — where the grass is browning around the foundation. Lately, even the spiders are clinging to life, that's how loud our house is. The other day the little guy runs in, slams the door so hard that all the 8-penny nails in the house pop a quarter-inch out of their sockets … baaaam, zip. He is breathless and carrying a lacrosse stick just because.

SUNDAY "Why Is Sex Fun?" is topic A on a sexy new installment of the science-y series "Curiosity. " Maggie Gyllenhaal, who starred in the sexy 2002 comedy-drama "Secretary," is your hostess for this very sexy inquiry. (Discovery, 8 and 11 p.m.) Many people own more than one pair of shoes. Most households have at least one vacuum cleaner. But you'll meet everyday people who are sitting on a surplus of these and other items in the new special "My Collection Obsession. " (TLC, 10 p.m.)

Wasn't that something? After last week's trades, in which some teams cleared the decks for this summer, and others, like the Lakers, stood pat because they're already in great (?) shape, everything is now imperfectly clear. We have a better idea of what the landscape will be, with Cleveland getting Antawn Jamison to help LeBron James, although he wanted Amare Stoudemire at first, and the Knicks getting their second maximum salary slot back after the shrinking cap had whittled them to 1 1/2 . What we await are the events that will take place on that landscape that will decide everything.

The first section of William Faulkner's "The Sound and the Fury" is such a notorious brain twister that any attempt at straightforward dramatization would be almost as foolhardy as trying to resurrect the Old South. Told from the point of view of Benjy, the Compsons' mentally challenged adult son, the narrative hopscotches with such retrospective insouciance that Faulkner was tempted to color-code passages to clarify shifts in time.

The rapper's rampage must have been a scary thing to behold: a destructive, reflexive reaction to bad news. But viewed another way, 50 Cent's meltdown here last month also exists as an extreme demonstration of his commitment to excellence. On Aug.

Flamenco sensation Yolanda Arroyo strutted, swayed, skittered, swooped, streaked and stomped across the floor like a sexy tornado. With guitarist and husband Paco Arroyo and a group of stellar guest performers from Spain, the Barcelona-born, Los Angeles-based dancer-choreographer turned Glendale's Alex Theatre into a den of passion Saturday night.

HERE'S my favorite story about William Faulkner: In 1925, while living in New Orleans, he became friendly with the wife of Sherwood Anderson and persuaded her to pass along his first novel, "Soldiers' Pay," for the older writer to read. Anderson is reported to have grumbled, "I'll get it published if I don't have to read it," and the book came out the following year.
HOME & GARDEN

IN a Hollywood film, the garden surrounding an ideal American home would typically have a thick, cool lawn, sculpted hedge, a flowering tree with a circle of marigolds planted around the base. On the soundtrack, there might be bird song, squeals of children playing, maybe the squeak of a porch door. The impact is so appealing that it could make an Eskimo set up a lemonade stall. It's even half true. For the most part, our streets are every bit as presentable as the ones in the movies.
