Review: Pan

posted: 10/09/2015 1:59 a.m. Discuss

Anybody wondering about the zeitgeist of the youth of England during the early 20th century need look no further than the popular children's literature that emerged from that period: Displaced kids sent out to the country to hide from the blitz who find a magical world inside a closet cabinet; an orphaned girl who discovers a secret garden along with a sickly cousin; a fantasia called Middle Earth roils under the siege of an evil sorcerer who seeks to find an all-consuming ring of power; and then, of course, we have a flying boy who is incapable of growing up. Orphans were popular protagonists; war and its bloody doings a common backdrop; and an ever-present threat, like a distant gray storm cloud, creeping closer and closer to the world the protagonists all inhabit.

DEAR HELOISE: In cleaning a relative's home, I found two large drawstring bags to keep silver from tarnishing. One is big enough to hold a platter. But they are very dirty -- mainly with dust, I think -- from being in the attic for decades. If I hand-wash them, will it take out the tarnish-proofing?

It was at the incense-infused Mother's Earth Shop on 23rd Street in Oklahoma City I first heard the self-titled, debut album "Jackson Browne." At 16 in 1972, I became a fan for life. Since then, I have attended many Jackson Browne concerts, but none top the For Everyman tour in OKC in 1974, when I first saw Jackson Browne live and met him after the show.

In the popular "The Hunger Games" series Katniss Everdeen and Peeta Mellark wear custom-designed outfits that appear to catch fire with the press of a button. In fact, the pair wear several custom-designed outfits throughout the series -- both books and films -- that appear to catch fire.
