So, shoulders are a thing. Not because of a quintessential bare-all moment like cleavage had at the 2000 Grammy Awards when Jennifer Lopez wore that Versace gown. And not because any shoulder got itself a Twitter account like Angelina Jolie's leg did in 2012. The thigh-high slit in the actress' black Atelier Versace earned her limb 38,000 Twitter followers that year. This spring's shoulder reveal was slow and somewhat surprising. One minute, we were all wrapping our arms in filmy, floral scarves and plush pashminas - in the summer months, too - with even our T-shirts raglan-sleeved.

ARIES (March 21-April 19) (sss) You might not have any more room for turkey, but you do have plenty of space for romance if you are willing to make yourself vulnerable tonight. If attached, there is an aura of disruption if you do not cater to your significant other. Expect a lot of ups and downs until late Sunday. TAURUS (April 20-May 20) (ssss) If you follow your instincts, you draw in someone very exciting. There is a sense that you have known each other before. As you land the soulmate you think you have been looking for, you still might be wondering "Is this it?"

TOM BRADY isn't worried about the predicted sub-freezing temperatures he will face when the Patriots host the Ravens in Foxborough, Mass., tomorrow. Game-time temperature for the AFC divisional playoff is expected to be 16 degrees. When asked by Comcast New England how he'll prepare for the cold, the Patriots quarterback - wearing a ski mask that covered all but his eyes and nose - replied: "I know exactly what to wear. I know how many layers to wear every degree. I'm a [bleeping]

Adapted from a recent online discussion. Question: I have a friend who I thought was a really close friend. I backed out of being her bridesmaid because I am due to give birth that same month; I apologized profusely and gave seven months' notice. I have gotten the cold shoulder since. She has a long history of being extremely passive- aggressive to others when they "wrong" her in some way that normally, after some time, she gets over. Despite her saying that "everything is fine," she has not accepted any of my invitations, nor has she invited me to anything.

MOSCOW - A campaign of insinuation and insult has targeted Prime Minister Dmitry Medvedev, and in a country where all power flows from the top downward, his boss, President Vladimir Putin, has done nothing all winter to stop it. Medvedev's failings get an airing in the press, and nasty, anonymous video documentaries accuse him of all sorts of treachery. Slights and humiliations are visited on him by the Kremlin. Governors go around him. Bureaucrats ignore him. Putin, in public, takes little care to hide his disdain.

After 116 inches of snow in the last two winters, the decision was just cold logic. This year, the Voorhees True Value store would "go heavy on the rock salt," manager Ron Rago said, adding resignedly, "You take your chances. " Neither Rago nor the best minds in meteorology could have guessed that come January, the rock-salt business would be hitting rock bottom. After all, on this date last year, Philadelphia was experiencing its second foot-plus snowfall of the winter and its fifth of the last two seasons.

DEAR ABBY: My husband, "Derek," confessed to me that while he was out with friends on a work-related trip, he drank too much and danced with and kissed another woman. He didn't tell me right away. He planned to tell me sometime in the future, but his conscience bothered him, so he told me five days later. I'm at a loss as to what to do. We have a small child. Derek is a good man, but he has violated my trust. I can't forget, and I don't know if I can forgive. We've had our ups and downs, and the past year has been particularly stressful.

Q: My husband is kind, gentle and affectionate. Except after sex. The sex itself is fine, but the next day, he often is cold and distant toward me. After a day, he goes back to his normal, loving self. He acknowledges he has a problem, but says he doesn't know why. I asked if I was doing things he didn't like during sex, and he said no. I even tried to joke about it and asked if he had another wife and felt guilty, which he thought was funny but solved nothing. Is counseling the answer?

A huge event will occur Saturday at the Lincoln Memorial that has received little mention by the media. The Restoring Honor Rally is a celebration of our country, its founding principles, traditions, faith, and our military personnel and their families. I presume that this isn't being reported because the event is being put on by Glenn Beck. Maybe to make it more newsworthy, the media should be made aware that the New Black Panther Party has threatened to disrupt the event. Further, the Rev. Al Sharpton has accused Beck of trying to co-opt the day, which is the anniversary of the Rev. Dr. Martin Luther King Jr.'s "I Have a Dream" speech.
