THE PLOW DRIVER'S wife made him apologize to Steve Keeley . The Fox 29 reporter became a viral sensation yesterday when he was reporting on the snowfall from Woodstown, N.J., and was pummeled with snow as the plow rolled past while still in the shot. Trouper that he was, Keeley continued his train of thought - discussing (very) former Phillie Hilly Filtcraft , of the 1942 team. But Michael Wyatt , the plow driver, didn't get off so easily. His wife, Michelle , made him call and apologize to Keeley, who assured Wyatt everything was fine.

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.

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.

"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)

Q: I would like to make a traditional fried catfish dinner with hush puppies. Would you please send me some easy recipes and tell me the best way to prepare this meal? - Sue K. 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. I have always thought that with their slimy, ugly whiskers and gaping mouths, catfish would make great creatures for a B horror movie like "Attack of the Killer Farm-Raised Mississippi Catfish.
