Vincent Gray enrolled at George Washington University amid the social segregation of the early '60s; he ended up becoming president of a Jewish fraternity -- and star of the intramural basketball scene. On Wednesday night the new mayor was honored at the GWU-LaSalle halftime. Fascinating story from Steve Hendrix divulges that two-term Tau Epsilon Phi prez balanced the frat house budget by (ahem) raising dues, cutting meals.

The evangelical Christians behind Kentucky's Creation Museum remain major skeptics of global warming -- but they're nonetheless eager to build their Noah's Ark replica to green building standards now in fashion, reports Philip Kennicott: Because God doesn't want them to be wasteful.

Ed Asner, Betty White, and George Segal are patronized as adorable senior citizens at the TV press tour, reports Lisa de Moraes. (How can Asner only be 81?)
