Question: A majority of homeowners were instrumental in getting me elected to the board in order to correct problems created by management and certain directors.

A resurrected Revolutionary War hero, a double-ax-wielding horseman (headless), ghost trees, Colonial witches, horned beasts, ancient priests, a sassy female cop and at least one Starbucks joke? Long before Tom Mison's fit and dashing Ichabod Crane got around to mentioning (oh yes, he did) the Four Horseman of the Apocalypse, I was hopelessly, hopefully hooked on "Sleepy Hollow," Fox's new literate if historically zany spook-fest of a police procedural.

Chris Brown has chilled out enough to discuss his assault on Rihanna reasonably with someone on morning television. Brown infamously lost it with Robin Roberts on "Good Morning America" when she asked a series of questions about Rihanna in March 2011, storming offstage after the interview and then going on to bust up a dressing room. His "Today" interview Monday with Matt Lauer was definitely more copacetic.
