I like beer. On occasion I will even drink a beer, to celebrate a major event such as the fall of communism or the fact that our refrigerator is still working. So you'd think I'd be receptive to TV beer commercials. Most of these have the same plot: Some guys open some beers, and instantly the commercial is overrun by friendly semi-naked young women resembling Barbie but taller and less intellectual. If you just got here from Mars, you wouldn't know, from watching these commercials, that beer is meant for internal consumption.

Oh no, not another cyber-thriller: the urgent clickety-clack of computer keyboards, frantic geeks thumbing their PDAs, evil Web wizards deploying viral downloads, server farms put out of service by a dastardly ring of digital terrorists. And who's going to save the day? John McClane, that two-fisted, old-school New York City cop from a trio of vintage Die Hards, that's who. The guy probably doesn't even own a PC. In Live Free or Die Hard, the fourth installment in Bruce Willis' blow-'em-up blockbuster franchise - and the first in 12 long years - gigabytes and fisticuffs collide.

OSAMA BIN LACKING? A reliable source (well, OK, a supermarket tabloid company) has suggested that Osama bin Laden developed an inferiority complex years ago when a young woman insulted his manhood. The tabloid reports indicated that bin Laden hadn't . . . inherited as much as he might have liked. That he . . . came up short in certain areas. That he . . . Oh, you get the picture. Such a complex would answer many questions about bin Laden, such as: Why do those guys hate women so much?

DURING the airdrops of food and medicine to those escaping to safer ground in Afghanistan, some observers from aid groups have complained that they are doing more harm than good since the merchandise is stolen and sold in the marketplace, or they couldn't be retrieved due to hostilities. Although it was considered a difficult task at the start, America has at least put forth an effort to help the starving, for which we should be commended. Instead of finding fault, the other people assisting those in need should be extending words of appreciation and concentrating on ways and means of getting the urgent supplies to the people.

When I started running in the mid-1990s, strictly to "condition" for a coming high school soccer season, I ran a lap as measured by the odometer on my father's car. When I trained for my first 5K in 2006, I pre-mapped my running routes through Google's pedometer. Now I put on a GPS watch, step out the door, pick a direction, and go. My first GPS watch cost more than $300. Now I can buy one for less than $100, or download a free app onto my smartphone that will track my time and distance and pace and give me updates through my headphones.

A Chester County old-timer who likes to design and sell watches has parlayed his zest for President-elect Barack Obama into the Obama inaugural watch. Mickey Orloff, 98, said yesterday from his Valley Forge home that he likes what he sees in Obama. And, he figures, why not make a little money from the Jan. 20 presidential inauguration? "I'm all cooked up about Obama," said Orloff. "I think he's our savior; I truly believe he has the talent to do what he promises to do. " The watches are to be shipped from Hong Kong by Monday.

SEBASTIANO "SAM" Braccia and Anthony "Tony" Watson were unlikely friends. Braccia, 64, silver-maned and stocky, speaks slowly and with a heavy accent. He made millions building houses and shopping centers in Montgomery County after emigrating more than 30 years ago from Abruzzi in central Italy. He seems to take his wealth in stride. He drives a pickup truck and wears an inexpensive Timex watch. Watson, 33, silver-necklaced and tall, speaks rapidly and with a lisp, his speech at times seeming to outrace his thoughts.
