      The crash landing is a dream come true to ruthless government alien investigator Traeger (Sterling K. Brown: Hotel Artemis). While his team studies the aliens, they hunt humans.

Enjoy an evening full of laughs in memory of Neil Simon
      Rumors was the first attempt at a laugh-out-loud farce from fabulously famous playwright Neil Simon, who died last month. It opened on Broadway in 1988 to decidedly mixed reviews....

On the other side, chill nights and cold rains will prove our allies

      The sporting life can be a dirty, thankless job, but someone’s got to do it.
      This past week proves my bromide true. After battling relentless heat and uncooperative fish, we are pelted by rainsqualls, wind and more rain. Not much fun.

More Pet Tales Please … And Wider Distribution
      I liked your August 16 Pet Tales issue and would like to see more of them like this in the future.
      I ran across this issue in one of my journeys and thought it was great and would like to know also how we could get these in our neighborhood as well. Also in Charles County.

Monarchs are not the only species that can’t stay still
      A couple of monarch caterpillars chewed their way to chrysalis as I watched, making do with the drying leaves of my little stand of milkweed.

A Cliff’s Notes take on one of history’s great spy operations

       In the 1960s, Mossad had the double role of protecting Israel as a sovereign nation and defending it from terrorism. So the report of an Argentinian sighting of the architect of the Final Solution, Adolph Eichmann (Ben Kingsley: Backstabbing for Beginners) falls to a distant third place.

Autumn is just right 

       If Rip Van Winkle jolted awake one afternoon to the long shirring sound of competing orchestras, he’d know where in time — if not in place — he found himself.
