a Green Hornet movie, will we finally see reruns of the TV series? —Steve Owen, Highlands Ranch, Colo.

A: ABC tells us there

P Dr. Drew

are currently no plans to air reruns. But Seth Rogen, 28, who cowrote and stars in the new Hornet film, out Jan. 14, hopes fans of the short-lived ’60s show will give his bigscreen reboot a shot. “We didn’t want to do a 100% safe version,” he says. “We wanted it to look different from any other movie before. Our goal was to make the action feel like it could actually happen.”

Q: Dr. Drew is all over

the place these days. How does he have time for everything? —Thomas Workman, Phoenix, Ariz.

A: We wondered about

that, too. But Dr. Drew (full name: Drew Pinsky) insists his life isn’t as hectic as you might think. “My day is a vacation compared to other doctors’,” he says. “Some mornings I’m up at 6, and some at 9. I don’t really have a blueprint for what I do.

The only issue is getting home in time for dinner.” He does admit, though, to being a bit of a workaholic. On his plate now: hosting Loveline and Celebrity Rehab with Dr. Drew, treating patients, developing a new show to debut this spring, and promoting the Smart Moves, Smart Choices campaign to educate teens about prescription-drug abuse. How does he get them to listen to him? “I do Teen Mom and 16 and Pregnant and that kind of stuff,” says Pinsky, 52, who has his own teens—18year-old triplets—with his wife, Susan. “I sort of live in their cultural landscape.”

Q: What can you tell t

me about country star Jason Aldean? —Diane S., Louisville, Ky.

A: That life hasn’t always

been a blast for the “My Kinda Party” singer. “The low point was being dropped from my label—I had a family to feed,” says Aldean, 33, Billboard’s new Number One Male Country Artist. So, what is his kind of party? “I have a barn on my property that I converted into a bar for my friends. It’s like my own little nightclub.”

‘It’s heavy, but it has laughs, too. Humor is always part of the best hours in life.’ —Halle Berry, on her new film, Frankie and Alice, out next month

WS Are you and Brick alike in any way? AS Brick is like me in every way, except that I don‘t whisper to myself. I do talk to myself, though. I say words that are amusing to me, like “jalapeño,” “belly button,” or “cappuccino.” WS What do you do for fun? AS I love LEGOs, movies, and video games. I also love to hang out with my family and friends. My mom’s my teacher and also probably the best cook on the planet. I’m her little sous chef. WS You were born with brittle bone disease. How has that affected you? AS It just means I have to be more careful. It’s a small part of my life—it’s not my whole life. I don’t see myself as challenged or handicapped. I’m unique. And I love being unique.

Those Were the Days...

n jan. 12, 1971, the sitcom All in the Family premiered on CBS, ushering in a new type of reality television, one that used comedy as an equalopportunity weapon to tackle politically charged issues. Forty years later, egf Archie Bunker is back in the national conversation, with some saying that the working-class man from Queens—an outspoken conservative who clashed repeatedly with his leftist son-in-law—was the original Tea Partier. Norman Lear, who produced the award-winning series, isn’t so sure. “Archie was not a joiner,” says Lear, 88. “He would, however, defend the Tea Party because he, too, was for small government and fiscal responsibleness—just as he sang, ‘…Mister, we could use a man like Herbert Hoover again.’ ” Archie owes some traits to Lear’s memory of his father, whose terror of the Depression made him into “his own kind of narrow-minded bigot,” Lear recalls. “I look around and I see the same kind of fear in people today.” In the 1970s, Archie’s worries over losing his job and his sense that, as Lear says, “the world moved too fast for him” struck a chord. And they still do today. —Nancy Bilyeau

IMPORTANT FACTS ABOUT BONIVA M Manner Up!

Your guide to modern etiquette

Q: My 17-year-old

daughter is Facebook friends with my sister but refuses to “friend” me. Can I ask my sister to fill me in on what my daughter posts? —Amy K., Spokane, Wash.

A: Your daughter is a minor. She lives with you. By law, she doesn’t get to vote or buy booze—and she also doesn’t have the right to complete privacy. That said, you only need to know about anything that is physically or mentally endangering her or someone else. Who she finds hot, who she’s dating, what she thinks of you and her teachers: Sister does not report. Racist diatribes, photos of her mooning the camera, plans to start growing hydroponic weed in her closet: Sister reports. You don’t have to volunteer to your daughter that you and your sister have discussed this. If she asks you, explain that you want her to have a private life, but you also want her to be safe. Ultimately, you want to model a respect for privacy; you don’t want to model that you’re an idiot who’ll accept your daughter’s ground rules and not set your own. —Judith Newman Send your questions to Parade.com/mannerup

At a chili cook-off, about 2800 people vote for their favorite dish in each of three categories: red, green, and vegetarian. There are 28 reds, 24 greens, and four veggies. The chili with the most votes overall wins the People’s Choice award. (A panel of judges chooses the best recipe in each category.) I consider this balloting method unfair, but my wife disagrees. What do you think? —Ed Tinkey, Conifer, Colo.

the balloting strongly favors the veggie chilies. Consider this: Say that 2856 votes are spread evenly among every dish in each category. Each red would get 102 votes (2856 ÷ 28 = 102), each green would get 119 (2856 ÷ 24 = 119), and each veggie would get 714 (2856 ÷ 4 = 714)!

The $1,000,000.00-A-Year Nest Egg! 7-MINUTE SOLUTION

THE DO-IT-YOURSELF CAR TUNE-UP Tom and Ray Magliozzi, of NPR’s Car Talk, on the once-a-month checkup anyone can do pressure in each tire with a gauge. The correct pressure is usually listed on a panel inside the driver’s door frame or in your glove box. Low pressure allows the tires to overheat, and they can come apart. RAY: Plus, your tire pressure affects handling, braking, and gas mileage. Don’t forget to check the spare. TOM: Next check the key fluids. For me, that means an espresso macchiato. RAY: You should check your oil. TOM: And your coolant. Look at the coolant overflow bottle—there are two lines. One says “Full” and the other says “Low.” RAY: Then check your windshield washer fluid. While you have the hood open, have a look around and see if anything’s hanging off… TOM: …or on fire! RAY: Next, put a little rubbing alcohol on a paper towel and wipe your windshield wipers’ rubber blades. Then clean the inside of the windshield. It’s also a good idea to look underneath the car to make sure nothing’s dangling—like the transmission. TOM: Finally, check the ground where you regularly park the car to see if you have any leaks. RAY: The filthy black stuff is oil. The greenish or reddish stuff is coolant. TOM: And if you see yellow puddles under your car, you’re overdue to change the cat box.

1 Drinking milk will make a cold worse. TRUE

False. Dairy products will not result in more phlegm. In the “better them than us” department, researchers in Australia asked adults with colds to drink milk, then measured their mucus output. The upshot? There’s no correlation between dairy intake and more of the yucky stuff.

FALSE

True. Though it isn’t a cure, “a saltwater gargle—1/4 to 1/2 teaspoon of salt dissolved in an 8-ounce glass of warm water— can temporarily relieve a sore or scratchy throat,” according to the Mayo Clinic. Doctors believe the salt works by reducing swelling and inflammation.

The most dangerous place to gain weight is: A All over

B Belly

C Thighs

D Hips

Answer: B. A bit more padding in your arms or legs may make your clothes snug, but it won’t harm your health like a spare tire. New research from the Mayo Clinic has shown that lower-body fat is not biologically the same as a roll around the middle; that’s largely made up of visceral fat, which has been linked to a higher risk of diabetes, heart disease, and some cancers. But moderate aerobic exercise like walking can help reduce belly fat. Crunches, not so much.

4 Women have more “senior moments” than men… TRUE

FALSE

False. A new Mayo Clinic study of more than 2000 men and women over 70 found that men were almost 50% more likely to suffer from mild cognitive impairment, including memory lapses. So, ladies, if he forgets your anniversary, don’t blame him—blame science.

5…but men are less likely to go to the doctor than women. TRUE

FALSE

False. When it comes to at least one medical situation, men are more proactive than women. Cardiac rehabilitation can greatly reduce the risk of death after a heart attack, but according to a new study by the Cardiac Wellness Institute of Calgary, women are less likely to seek treatment—and when they do, it’s usually at a more serious stage in the disease. Researchers surmise that the demands of family and work, as well as a lack of energy, may play a role.

7 To decrease your chances of catching a cold, avoid the following:

A Going outside with wet hair

B Watching too much TV

C Sleeping in a draft

Answer: B. Catching a chill— from an indoor draft or a blast of winter wind when your hair is wet—will not cause a cold. On the other hand, being a couch potato may increase your likelihood of catching one. A new study from Appalachian State University in North Carolina found that exercise

reduces the frequency and severity of colds more than any other lifestyle factor. Participants in the study who exercised five times a week took 43% to 46% fewer sick days. And when they did get sick, their symptoms were much milder than their more sedentary peers’. Experts believe that exercise triggers

8 Being able to touch your toes is a good way to test:

A Your flexibility

C Your risk of heart disease

B Your blood pressure

D Your muscle strength

Answer: A and C. Try this at home: Sit on the floor, legs straight, toes pointing up, and try to touch your toes. While an inability to reach your tootsies doesn’t mean you’re destined for a heart attack, new research indicates that lack of trunk flexibility may mean that your arteries are as rigid as the rest of you. Stiff arteries can be a precursor of heart disease. Researchers believe that stretching may not only keep your limbs more flexible but also slow down arterial stiffening.

Melissa McCarthy

The star of Mike & Molly dishes about bad movies, her lack of bathroom privacy, and why they couldn’t keep her down on the farm

M

ELISSA McCARTHY HAS A THING ABOUT

PARADE What was it like

growing up on a farm outside Plainfield, Illinois? It’s funny; as I get older I’m reverting to my roots—I want to plant stuff. But I was the girl who wanted to get off the farm and move to New York to do fashion. My best friend was Brian Atwood, who is now a wildly successful shoe and accessory designer. The two of us would sit in his bedroom poring over Vogue and cutting things out. How did you dress back then? My poor parents! I went from captain of the cheerleading squad and varsity tennis to Goth: blue-black hair with randomly shaved patches, red Kabuki lips, crazy eyeliner, black full-length capes, and big platforms, which no

one was wearing at the time. I thought it was hilarious. thou People didn’t know P what to do with me. You started in stand-up. What was your act like? Brian told me to come to New York, and I arrived with $45 in cash. We were roommates, and he was like, “You’re doing stand-up.” Two days later, I was. I had no idea what I was doing—I had never even been to a club. He dressed me in a gold swing coat, and I had a huge red wig and giant shoes. I was like a short drag queen! And I went up there and just told stories about being tall, pretty, and wealthy in Manhattan.

Did you have any concerns about the role of weight on Mike & Molly? At first I thought, If that’s the crux of the show, I don’t have any interest. I don’t like anything that is just one little topic—it’s beating a dead horse. It isn’t funny. But it didn’t offend me as someone who has always battled her weight; it offended me as a comedian. And then I read the script, and I thought: That’s not what it’s about at all. It’s a love story. I love that Billy Gardell is just a cop and I’m just a teacher and we don’t have secret lives where we’re wrestling Russian alligators.

What’s different about being the lead instead of the best friend? You get to be on the billboards, which is fun. That’s the shallow answer. It’s also a whole different kind of workload. It was certainly a lot easier to just walk into a room and zing a great line at somebody. Are there any parallels between your relationship on TV and your relationship at home? Yeah, but in real life, I’m Mike.

I’m always the one screwing up in my relationship and my husband’s this calm, smart, funny guy. When you’re off work on the weekends, what do you like to do? I love a good swap meet, but I try to just hunker down at the house. I’m always tinkering with something—suddenly I’ll think I can work with wood, but then I’ll realize I can’t, so I go back to sewing. And if both girls are napping, watching an incredibly bad movie with my husband is the most decadent thing in the world. Like Jack Frost—not the Michael Keaton one, oh no, but the one where a criminal dies and comes back as a snowman. It seems like he’s made of three styrofoam balls, and like they didn’t even attempt to make it not look like styrofoam. We’ve watched it again and again.

QUIZ

Pcontinued from pg. 11 drinks with added sugar, though. They only defeat the purpose.) Another bonus? One cup of cranberries has just 51 calories and is loaded with vitamin C.

10 The best source of more energy in the afternoon is:

A A cup of green tea

B A walk around the block

C A nap

Answer: C. Researchers at the University of Surrey in England found that older people who have trouble sleeping at night are often reluctant to take naps because they worry it’s a sign of laziness. In fact, the opposite is true: Participants who took the occasional nap when necessary had the energy to lead more active lives than their siestaresistant peers.

11 What amount of sleep a night is linked to an increased risk of premature death? A 5.5 hours B 6.5 hours C 9 hours

Answer: A and C. Both too little and too much sleep have been linked to an increased risk of premature death, though for different reasons. According to a new meta-analysis of over one million participants, sleeping less than six hours a night increased the risk by 12%, while sleeping more than nine hours increased it by 30%.

12 How much screen time per day will hurt kids’ social and intellectual development? A 45 minutes B 2 hours C 3.5 hours

Answer: C. The American Academy of Pediatrics recommends that preschoolers limit screen time (including TV, computer, and video games) to two hours a day. But a recent study found that over 66% of young children exceeded that mark, which can lead to speech delays and obesity. In a study of tweens, a daily dose of over two hours of screen time was linked to increased psychological problems, including difficulty getting along with friends.

• if you have a severe allergy to milk proteins. Ask your doctor if you are not sure. BRIEF SUMMARY This summary does not take the place of talking to your healthcare provider about your medical condition or treatment. See full Prescribing Information for complete product information. What is the most important information I should know about ADVAIR DISKUS? ADVAIR DISKUS can cause serious side effects, including: 1. People with asthma who take long-acting beta 2 adrenergic agonist (LABA) medicines, such as salmeterol (one of the medicines in ADVAIR DISKUS), have an increased risk of death from asthma problems. It is not known whether fluticasone propionate, the other medicine in ADVAIR DISKUS, reduces the risk of death from asthma problems seen with salmeterol. • Call your healthcare provider if breathing problems worsen over time while using ADVAIR DISKUS. You may need different treatment. • Get emergency medical care if: - breathing problems worsen quickly and - you use your rescue inhaler medicine, but it does not relieve your breathing problems. 2. ADVAIR DISKUS should be used only if your healthcare provider decides that your asthma is not well controlled with a long-term asthma control medicine, such as inhaled corticosteroids. 3. When your asthma is well controlled, your healthcare provider may tell you to stop taking ADVAIR DISKUS. Your healthcare provider will decide if you can stop ADVAIR DISKUS without loss of asthma control. Your healthcare provider may prescribe a different asthma control medicine for you, such as an inhaled corticosteroid. 4. Children and adolescents who take LABA medicines may have an increased risk of being hospitalized for asthma problems. What is ADVAIR DISKUS? • ADVAIR DISKUS combines an inhaled corticosteroid medicine, fluticasone propionate (the same medicine found in FLOVENT®), and a LABA medicine, salmeterol (the same medicine found in SEREVENT®). - Inhaled corticosteroids help to decrease inflammation in the lungs. Inflammation in the lungs can lead to asthma symptoms. - LABA medicines are used in people with asthma and chronic obstructive pulmonary disease (COPD). LABA medicines help the muscles around the airways in your lungs stay relaxed to prevent symptoms, such as wheezing and shortness of breath. These symptoms can happen when the muscles around the airways tighten. This makes it hard to breathe. In severe cases, wheezing can stop your breathing and cause death if not treated right away. • ADVAIR DISKUS is used for asthma and COPD as follows: Asthma ADVAIR DISKUS is used to control symptoms of asthma and to prevent symptoms such as wheezing in adults and children aged 4 years and older. ADVAIR DISKUS contains salmeterol (the same medicine found in SEREVENT). LABA medicines, such as salmeterol, increase the risk of death from asthma problems. ADVAIR DISKUS is not for adults and children with asthma who: - are well controlled with another asthma control medicine, such as a low to medium dose of an inhaled corticosteroid medicine - have sudden asthma symptoms. COPD COPD is a chronic lung disease that includes chronic bronchitis, emphysema, or both. ADVAIR DISKUS 250/50 is used long term, 2 times each day to help improve lung function for better breathing in adults with COPD. ADVAIR DISKUS 250/50 has been shown to decrease the number of flare-ups and worsening of COPD symptoms (exacerbations).

What should I tell my healthcare provider before using ADVAIR DISKUS? Tell your healthcare provider about all of your health conditions, including if you: • have heart problems • have high blood pressure • have seizures • have thyroid problems • have diabetes • have liver problems • have osteoporosis • have an immune system problem • are pregnant or planning to become pregnant. It is not known if ADVAIR DISKUS may harm your unborn baby. • are breastfeeding.

Cooking Tips

Chicken Fried Steak

cle

My first memory of eating this dish was in Georgia when I was 7 and I joined my grandmother “Florence Mama” in the kitchen. Wrist deep in buttermilk and flour, I stood and helped as she pan-fried steaks in bacon drippings in her 100-year-old cast-iron skillet. Then, with the back-door screen letting in a warm breeze scented with sweet Georgia pine, I tasted it—the perfect bite. The crunchy, fried, flour-coated pieces of beef, smothered in a creamy milk gravy with lots of black pepper, ignited a passion for cooking that still crackles. Over the years, I’ve traveled the world and explored what international food is all about. And one thing I’ve discovered is that my grandmother was onto something. I’ve had schnitzel in Austria, Milanese in Italy, and paillard in France—all of them good, but in my mind, glorified versions of the delicious, brown, unpretentiously proud chicken fried steak I grew up on. It’s still possibly the world’s greatest dish—to the 7-year-old chef I was at my grandmother’s side and to the 39-year-old one I am today. 18 • January 9, 2011

I’ve taken what my grandmother taught me and made it my own. Back then, we used cube steak. Today I like rib eye.

“To test the oil, drop in a 1-inch cube of white bread. If the bread burns after 30 seconds, the oil is too hot; if the bread doesn’t brown, the oil is not hot enough.”

Serves: 6

2 lbs boneless rib-eye steaks, cut 1/2 inch thick 2 Tbsp table salt, for brine Vegetable oil, for frying 4 cups self-rising flour, such as White Lily (see Tips) 1 tsp paprika

1 tsp garlic powder 1 tsp onion powder 1 Tbsp kosher salt 1 tsp fresh black pepper 1 scallion, green part only, chopped

1. Using the smooth side of a meat mallet, gently pound the steaks to tenderize and flatten them. Place in a shallow baking dish, cover with cold water, and add table salt to create a brining solution. Cover and refrigerate 2 hours or overnight. 2. In a deep skillet, heat 4 inches of oil over medium-high to 350°F. 3. In a shallow bowl, stir together flour, paprika, garlic and onion powders, salt, and pepper. One by one, lift steaks out of the brining solution and drop into the seasoned flour. Coat well; shake off excess. Repeat, dipping coated steaks back into the solution, then the flour. 4. Slip steaks into the hot oil. (Do not fry more than 2 pieces at a time, as this will lower the temperature.) Fry 10 to 12 minutes on each side. Remove; let rest 10 minutes before cutting. Sprinkle with scallions. Serve with white gravy, if desired. Per serving: 670 calories, 47g fat, 105mg cholesterol, 1100mg sodium, 31g carbs, 31g protein

Putting America First S WE LEAVE BEHIND

a year of extreme political turbulence, Americans are rightly wondering: What comes next? Will our politicians spend this year hooting and hollering at one another, letting us drift downhill, or will they put the country first? History proves that even in fractious times, it is possible for leaders to work together. Richard Nixon, my first White House boss, told me shortly before he died about one of his proudest moments. Having just returned from World War II, he hung up his military uniform and ran for Congress in 1946. Propelled by a wave of disenchantment with President Truman—similar to the one that has struck President Obama—Republicans swept into power in both the House and the Senate and were braced for a fight. Only a few months later, things would change. Truman saw that postwar Europe was falling apart and asked his secretary of state, George Marshall, to put together a huge aid package. The plan’s expense made it unpopular at first, so Truman invited Republican foes to join the administration in drafting the Marshall Plan, and a bipartisan campaign was launched to overcome public opposition. When the plan from a beleaguered Democratic president was put to a vote on the House floor in 1948, Nixon stood up in favor on one side of the aisle, and there, standing on the other side, was another congressional freshman, John F. Kennedy. Though he and Kennedy frequently clashed, Nixon saw that vote as one of his proudest moments because it proved that when the chips are down, Americans can stand up together.

Democratic base. Sound familiar? But Clinton nimbly outmaneuvered both the right and the left, and we moved forward as a people. In his later years in office, he and the Republicans not only overhauled the welfare system—a significant milestone—but also produced four straight balanced budgets, something not seen in over half a century. He left office with Democrats mostly assuaged and the general public giving him high marks.

President Obama with then House minority leader John Boehner (R., Ohio) in 2010. Can they marshal their own plan?

Even with polarization, a weakened president and a fractious Congress can put down their differences and lift up the country.

During my early years in Washington, when the World War II generation was in charge, I witnessed that spirit again and again. The war veterans saw themselves as strong Democrats or strong Republicans—but first and foremost, as strong Americans. That ethos was in full flower in the Reagan years. Even though the House was in the hands of the Democrats for both of his terms, President Reagan and Congress reached bipartisan agreements at several key moments— from spending and tax cuts in 1981 to Social Security reform in 1983 to an overhaul of the tax system in 1986. More recently, in conditions remarkably similar to Obama’s, Bill Clinton showed that it is possible to make serious progress for the country. He suffered a stinging defeat by Republicans in his first midterm elections. He was so devastated, it appeared that Republicans, led by Newt Gingrich, would run over him; then, as he moved to the center, he also angered many in his own

S

O, IT CAN BE DONE. EVEN

with polarization, a weakened president and a fractious Congress can put down their differences and lift up the country. In fact, Yale political scientist David Mayhew has conducted a pioneering study showing that times of divided government—contrary to conventional wisdom—produce as much effective legislation as do times of unified control. The question before us is whether this generation of leaders can rise to the call as others have. The public knows we can’t go on living as we have. Can President Obama finally sound a clear trumpet, leading the country to support a brave agenda for a renewed, competitive nation? Will Republicans be willing to meet him halfway? Will the extremists in both parties allow sensible compromises to be forged and passed? There were glimmers of hope—and lots of dark moments—as the old Congress returned for a quick shirttail session. But now a new Congress has come to town, and the real work is about to begin. A moment of truth is upon us. The chips are down. Once again, we Americans must summon the courage and goodwill to stand up together.

If you have type 2 diabetes, take steps to help control your blood sugar.

Se offer e FREE below .*

Talk to your doctor about lowering blood sugar levels. Talk to your doctor about JANUVIA.

If JANUVIA is right for you, start today with a free 30-day trial supply.* JANUVIA works to lower blood sugar in 2 ways. Talk to your doctor about JANUVIA today. Increases Insulin

Decreases Sugar Made In Liver

• JANUVIA is a once-daily prescription pill that helps your body increase the insulin made in your pancreas and decrease the sugar made in your liver. • Along with diet and exercise, JANUVIA helps lower blood sugar levels in adults with type 2 diabetes. • JANUVIA is not likely to cause weight gain or low blood sugar (hypoglycemia).

JANUVIA (jah-NEW-vee-ah) should not be used in patients with type 1 diabetes or with diabetic ketoacidosis (increased ketones in the blood or urine). If you have had pancreatitis (inflammation of the pancreas), it is not known if you have a higher chance of getting it while taking JANUVIA. Selected Risk Information About JANUVIA: Serious side effects can happen in people who take JANUVIA, including pancreatitis, which may be severe and lead to death. Before you start taking JANUVIA, tell your doctor if you’ve ever had pancreatitis. Stop taking JANUVIA and call your doctor right away if you have pain in your stomach area (abdomen) that is severe and will not go away. The pain may be felt going from your abdomen through to your back. The pain may happen with or without vomiting. These may be symptoms of pancreatitis. Do not take JANUVIA if you are allergic to any of its ingredients, including sitagliptin. Symptoms of serious allergic reactions to JANUVIA, including rash, hives, and swelling of the face, lips, tongue, and throat that may cause difficulty breathing or swallowing, can occur. If you have any symptoms of a serious allergic reaction, stop taking JANUVIA and call your doctor right away. If you take JANUVIA with another medicine that can cause low blood sugar (hypoglycemia), such as a sulfonylurea or insulin, your risk of getting low blood sugar is higher.
