    First of all, the Internet is good only for email and some big-butt Web sites. That said, I was surprised and taken aback by David's gift. But with this CD, David has showed me a glimpse of the Web's true usefulness. He has, in pitch-perfect clarit...

    Playbill - Xmas Sing-along

    Whatever Christmas spirit is, it's not something to be found in crowded shopping malls where you're as likely to get an elbow in the gut as a message of good cheer. And it's almost impossible to feel goodwill toward fellow Houstonians when they're cu...
