DEAR CAR TALK: Let me start off by saying I'm a scientist. I graduated from Boston University with a science degree. It was there that I met my wife, who also is a scientist. When we come across a problem, we attack it scientifically. Our problem: In the short span of three months, my wife has managed to crack the windshield of our 2008 Toyota Sienna XLE minivan three times. Each time required a replacement windshield from the fine ladies and gentlemen at a well-advertised automotive glass shop. I do not fault the windshield repair shop in any way. Instead, I hypothesize that it is my wife's driving behavior that may be contributing to her unusually high windshield consumption rate. My driving instructor taught me that there should be a three-second distance between your car and the car ahead of you. I cannot comment on what my wife's driving instructor taught her, as I was not present to witness it. Needless to say, she leaves considerably less than three seconds -- in other words, she's a tailgater. My question is:

When it comes to selecting a "thriller" plant for your mixed container, I would like to put forth the idea of using a banana. They have the ability to invoke an immediate sense of tropical islands and ocean breezes. It really makes no difference if you are using an ornamental banana or one that just might set fruit; it will be the large, coarse or bold textured leaves that transport you mentally to a Caribbean paradise.

DEAR HELOISE: I've been using those coloring books for adults lately. The designs allow you to create beautiful pictures. It's relaxing, with my only thought being, "How do I get color in that little space without going over the line?" My handwriting has even improved!

Happy birthday. You'll go in to this year with the sense that everything is linked in purpose, whether or not that purpose is known. Your hope and optimism will attract angelic characters to you -- truly affectionate and helpful souls who are committed to seeing you shine. August brings a big sale. The win goes to you in October.

DEAR REV. GRAHAM: How do you avoid being bitter or angry when someone hurts you or treats you unfairly? Some bad things happened between my brother and me a few months ago, and I'm having a hard time not being bitter -- especially since he blames it all on me.

Dom Flemons, who as a member of the Carolina Chocolate Drops won the very last Grammy available for Best Traditional Folk Album in 2011, took his good-timey post-modern minstrel show to the Oxford American's South on Main on Thursday night, and a swell time was had by all.

I'm sorry to report we officially live in an age where true inspiration and riotous imagination have been savagely commoditized and beaten down into unadulterated claptrap: A risible litany of obvious formulas, prescribed points of dramatic arc, a manufactured sprinkling of cheap, emotional flashpoints, surrounded on all sides by layer after layer of protective netting, so that absolutely nothing has even a momentary hint of danger.

Most fanboys and fangirls agree that the Disney-owned Marvel organization has managed to get more of its superheroes onto the big screen with dignity than the Time-Warner owned DC. For those who crave more equality, we can take comfort that director Bryan Singer has now done for the X-Men what Kryptonite does for DC's Superman.
