Lawrence Summers was sworn in Friday as the 71st Treasury secretary, a day after the Senate overwhelmingly voted to put the 44-year-old former Harvard professor in charge of the nation's economic policy. Vice President Al Gore, in his function as president of the U.S. Senate, administered the oath of office during a private ceremony at the White House, clearing the way for Summers' predecessor, Robert E. Rubin, to return to private life after more than four years in the hot seat at Treasury.

Avatar 20th Century Fox, $29.98; Blu-ray, $39.99 To some, the idea of watching James Cameron's mega-grossing sci-fi action epic "Avatar" at home -- on a small screen and in crummy ol' 2-D -- will seem about as appealing as being stuck in a human body instead of one of those tall blue Pandora models. Yet even at reduced size, "Avatar" is quite the spectacle, with interplanetary landscapes that look like Yes album covers, and an ecology-minded plot that's as rousing as it is corny.

The smartest kid in the class is going to be Treasury secretary. That, in a nutshell, is what will happen when Lawrence H. Summers takes the job that will make him jointly responsible with Federal Reserve Chairman Alan Greenspan for protecting the nation's long economic expansion and keeping the rest of the world out of financial trouble. On the surface, the casting could hardly be stranger. To be sure, the 44-year-old Summers was born to economic aristocracy. Both his parents are economists.
