The Korean import "Venus Talk" starts off as a light and lively look at the sex lives of 40ish female friends before eventually giving way to something deeper and more thoughtful. It's an enjoyable, often amusing, occasionally touching ride that may not break much new ground but still satisfies its modest goals. The three "Venusians" here each find themselves at a romantic crossroads early in the film. Hae-Young (Jo Min-soo), a single mother and cafe owner, wants the security of marriage from her wedding-averse carpenter boyfriend (Lee Geung-young)

It was the middle of the night. I was asleep. My mom came in and started punching me. She said I didn't fold my clothes right. I threw her off of me. She was real drunk. She started on me again. The police came. She said: 'What? I'm just kicking my son's ass.' Just another night. -- Carlos, 17 :: The little school in South Los Angeles is the end of the road, reserved for those who have bombed out of the rest of the system. The mildest cases were merely kicked out of their last school.

WASHINGTON--Many Senate Democrats facing tough reelection battles this fall aren't welcoming President Obama to the campaign trail, given his low approval ratings. But Wednesday night they'll roll out the red carpet for former President Clinton, hoping the Comeback Kid can offer some tips for the upcoming midterms. Clinton is delivering the dinnertime keynote talk at the Senate Democrats' retreat Wednesday in what is likely to be part strategy session, part pep talk as the former president's party engages in an uphill struggle to retain control of the Senate this fall.

Last spring, Wired magazine ran a mini-feature on how to make small talk. The tone was that of a pep talk, the advice poignantly remedial. The overall effect was to make the heart bleed for the presumed social ineptitude of the magazine's tech-savvy readers. But what if we're all nerds now? There are those of us who worry we've become so immersed in technology -- in our laptops and PDAs, our e-mails and text messages -- that we no longer know how to talk with each other face to face.

Oprah Winfrey's show on Sept. 15, about the film "Color of Fear," should win an Emmy. I had chills, tears, shouts of joy and laughter listening to the comments on racism in America. All of America should see this film. People must always try their best and not give in or give up. All other talk shows should be canceled if they're not going to excel like Oprah. I watched Carnie Wilson's show for 15 minutes--it was horrible. Oprah is still the classiest. Charlotte Walker, Walnut . . I cannot believe believe we have yet another sleazy talk-show host in the name of Danny Bonaduce.

My mother doesn't like to talk to me on the phone when I'm driving, so she made her point that the world is in worse shape than she'd ever seen it in her 80-plus years, then hung up. I diluted her grim words with rock radio and was thoroughly enjoying an Eagles' song I'd hated in 1975 when a man in a Dodge Caravan honked and motioned for me to roll down my window. Actually, for the sake of accuracy, I didn't notice he drove a Caravan until later, when I was homicidally tailing him up and down side streets.

SAN FRANCISCO -- Snapchat has all but disappeared from the conversation here just weeks after turning down a $3-billion takeover offer from Facebook. The talk of Silicon Valley is now all about image-sharing service Imgur, which is said to be in talks with Yahoo . Alan Schaaf started the company in 2009 when he was an Ohio University undergrad because he was frustrated with how hard it was to share photos on Reddit. Now Imgur (pronounced "IM-uh-jur") draws more traffic than Reddit, having topped 100 million users in September thanks to the space dog , the rocket frog and countless other images that are hard to resist.
