SIGNOFF: 12 vs. 5 ? The mother should press charges. That might be the only way for this bully to get (hopefully)straightened out. @ 1965 reader Bullying was wrong in the 70's and it's wrong forever.

    Blog: Can we please fix the Oscars?

    Summary:  Fun facts: The first-ever Oscar ceremony, held in 1929, ran a brisk 15 minutes. By contrast, the longest was in 2002, clocking in at a monstrous 4 hours and change.
