Images often speak much louder than words. In describing history, photographs tell many stories, both personal and universal, about the scenes they capture and about the people they depict.
Inherent in photography, too, are the photographers themselves.
To be honest, I was a little uneasy about the whole concept of "Glory Days" in the first place. Not only has it replaced "Jack and Jill," my personal favorite of 2001 (though apparently I was the only one who appreciated it due to the fact that it was cancelled), it has temporarily stolen "Felicity's" time slot.
Knowing that the show was created by Kevin Williamson ("Dawson's Creek"and "Scream") and stars the aesthetically appealing Eddie Cahill, I decided to give it a chance.
Staten Island's finest get back in form

Tracie Morris, a Brooklyn native, considers herself a musical poet. She has been writing poetry informally since childhood and has had many musical influences in her life.

Busta Rhymes will invade Hanover this Sunday, returning to Dartmouth for the first time since his spring 1999 performance in Leede Arena.
Legendary French novelist Alexandre Dumas had a penchant for producing highly entertaining and action-packed writing.
Woo-hah! Busta Rhymes certainly had Dartmouth College in check last night as he brought his free-spirited, original hip-hop tunes to Leede Arena.
Following his 1999 performance at the College, Rhymes returned with both old school hits and some new beats from his latest album, "Genesis."
With his new record featuring big stars like Mary J.
The prodigal soloist can't make up for a middling band
When I look back on my childhood I think of big hair, fluorescent clothing, Madonna and slap bracelets.
Imagine my surprise when I learned that, come April, my chance to contribute to the fight against global warming would be sitting in the nearest grocer's freezer.
Ben and Jerry's, the popular ice cream franchise started right across the border in Waterbury, Vt., unleashed its newest scoop of heaven in their "scoop shops", or franchise stores, this month.
Among the countless performance groups that entertain the Dartmouth community on a continuous basis is the college's award-winning Glee Club.
It is a special treat to have an internationally renowned musician come to Dartmouth. To have two on the same stage is nothing short of amazing.
This is exactly what the Dartmouth community will experience this evening, when Andrew Manze and Richard Egarr perform in Rollins Chapel at 8 p.m.
The two are in the middle of a tour that has already brought them through Australia, France and the Netherlands.
The duo will be playing selections from Correlli, Fontana, Uccellini and Pandolfi, all composers of the "Fantastic Style" of 17th-century Italy.
Manze is a Baroque violinist who has been recognized for his skill and versatility as a soloist, accompanist and conductor.
"There are no rules, the fantastic style -- where the fantasy is in control," violinst Andrew Manze explained during his performance in Rollins Chapel Friday night.
Manze, along with harpsichordist Richard Egarr, played a collection of Italian baroque sonatas for a curious sold-out crowd.
The repertoire demanded spontaneous creativity and improvisation -- qualities that most classical musicians lack.
The rudimentary notation of the 17th and 18th century publishers invites the performer to embellish and improvise freely.
Photojournalist Chester Higgins, Jr. visited the Hood Museum Friday to discuss his numerous acheivements in his field.
"It does not matter to me what a person or a thing looks like," Higgins said.
What a Super Bowl! Turning around a season of turmoil and controversy, Tom Brady powered the Pats to their first Super Bowl win in team history, and the New England defense shut down the Rams' fabled offense, which has been called "Greatest Show on Turf."
But the action did not end on the field.
Over the last half-century, few figures have had as much impact on the development of American popular music as Willie Nelson.
Early in his career as a songwriter he penned such classics as Patsy Cline's "Crazy," while in the 1970s he blossomed as a preeminent country music superstar.
Now, over 40 years after his debut, Nelson is still going strong at age 68, as evidenced by his latest release, "The Great Divide."
The record mirrors the recent efforts of two fellow rock veterans: Santana's multi-Grammy-winning "Supernatural" and Bob Dylan's critically-acclaimed "Love and Theft."
It parallels Santana's wide use of guest contemporary artists and portrays a buoyant, upbeat tone similar to that of "Love and Theft."
"Upbeat," however, is not a typical adjective to describe Nelson's work.
In an era of cheesy flicks packed with actors who are so young they have pimples older than their careers, it is hard to find a film worth watching.
One word can describe the Barbary Coast Jazz Ensemble's performance this past Saturday night: infectious.
Surely the Chemical Brothers must have felt slighted until, after spinning discs in some of England's hottest clubs for seven years, they were hailed by critics and recognized by a mainstream audience with 1997's "Dig Your Own Hole." But the sensational British duo, Tom Rolands and Ed Simons, have put all that behind them and playfully ask fans on their fourth studio release to, "Come With Us."
Rolands and Simons met each other at the University of Manchester while taking a history class.
