Steven Rea is creeped out by Catfish , and he's telling his Facebook friends. An unsettling documentary about Internet intimacy and how you can pose as somebody else - lots of somebody elses - in a social network world, Henry Joost and Ariel Schulman's tricky little number addresses one of the ironies of the Facebook Era: that sharing your life on a computer screen doesn't necessarily bring you closer to other people. Yup, stop the presses: There's alienation and loneliness in the land, and announcing what you had for breakfast to your Facebook pals isn't necessarily going to make things better.

Eagles fans may not like it, but the Super Bowl will still go on in New Orleans Sunday. To pay homage to the Big Easy, it seemed appropriate to share a recipe featuring one of Louisiana's finest culinary delights - catfish. At the New Wave Cafe at 3rd and Catharine, executive chef Ben McNamara serves up a catfish BLT. It's so tasty, you'll hang on to the recipe until next year's Super Bowl, when the Eagles are sure to fly high. NEW WAVE CAFE'S CATFISH BLT 2 slices toasted oatmeal bread 4 ounces catfish filet 2 ounces roasted red pepper aioli (see recipe below)

"Catfish" is the latest entry in the almost instantly tiresome genre of possibly fake documentary. Is it a moving chronicle of fluid identity in the anonymous Internet age? Is it a self-serving bag of tricks from a reality-show wannabe? I'm afraid I'm in the latter camp. "Catfish" seemed phony to me from the get-go, when it introduced its de facto subject, a New York photographer and ready-for-his-close-up camera hog name Yaniv "Nev" Schulman. In the movie's opening shot, Nev flashes about $10,000 worth of orthodontia, bats his eyelashes at the camera and tells the director (his brother Ariel)

Contrary to the fears of some of the nation's more squeamish food critics, the Bill Clinton administration coming up from Arkansas represents no threat to conventional American cuisine. You know those critics' apprehensions by now: that some backwoods culinary equivalent of the Jacksonian mob will descend on the White House and Washington come January, and that Americans can expect to be humiliated by the spectacle of their leaders serving some yahoo delicacy - possum innards, perhaps - to sensitive visiting potentates.

The flathead catfish, described by a federal biologist as "one of the most serious threats to the stability of the aquatic system," has been discovered in the Schuylkill watershed. A voracious predator, the flathead has wreaked havoc on rivers in many Southeastern states. "These are the silent killers that cruise the waters and take out other native fishes," said U.S. Geological Survey biologist Jim Williams, chief of a biodiversity branch of the agency. The flathead is native to the Mississippi drainage area, which includes western Pennsylvania.

Never has any other food been avoided with as many excuses as fish. And you've probably used most of them: "I'd make it, but a family member doesn't like fish. " Or: "I'm afraid I'll overcook it and ruin it. " Sound familiar? How come no one says, "I'm afraid I'll overbake the chocolate chip cookies and ruin them"? Here's a preparation that will eliminate those responses. It's a simple concoction of plain yogurt, onion, mint, jalapeno chili and lime juice. I call it Hot Green Sauce.

Little Matthew DiGirolamo said he plans to return to Mirror Lake and "catch the biggest one.

Last weekend, the boy was part of a small crowd that witnessed the restocking of Mirror Lake, one of the township's premier fishing spots. More than 10,000 fish were returned to the water - one year after the lake was emptied for construction purposes.

ANYBODY FOR Catfish Bitters? No, they're not made from catfish, but by a man called Catfish, who used to prepare a blend of herbs he claimed could cure any human distress. He lived in the woods of West Virginia and was doing well until the Food and Drug Administration put a crimp in his operation. Nevertheless, William P. Betz tried the bitters and found they made a decent tonic. Betz sold the bitters, along with a collection of other herbs - like mugwort, tansy, sacred bark and more familiar items like sage, thyme and ginseng - at his store and mill at 2nd and Spring Garden streets in Northern Liberties.

A: As a fisherman, I can tell you that although there is beauty in the simplicity of your request, beauty and catfish don't belong in the same sentence.
