    I quit attending the "food events" in the church a few years ago. I'm not sure that members should really want much publicity about the food you can find when members get together in a meetinghouse, especially if it is compared side by side to the word of wisdom. You mostly find worthless carbs, high fat and high sugar foods.

    Hallmark never announced a new daily show by Marie Osmond "could possibly replace the 'Martha Stewart Show.'" This reporting has come from leaks by Hallmark and Michelle Vicary, evp programming, to exploit free media publicity for Hallmark. The leaks from Hallmark and Vicary while "in dicussions" reflect deplorable, bad faith conduct that completely repudiates the Hallmark brand and Hallmark cards. The Martha Stewart Show is quality programming on living the American way of life and a healthy lifestyle; that excellent programming is obviously needed on a Martha Stewart channel on cable tv.

    The Hallmark channel does not have the viewing audience to sustain the new show. Hallmark is "extremely excited about the prospect" of a show that Hallmark will cancel in no time in its wild goose ratings chase. Hallmark is the Titanic; Martha Stewart is Hallmark's last best hope for transformation to a channel with long-term viability.

    Thank you @anneray for suggesting the change in the photo, and thank you DN for changing it.

    A newer picture of Marie would have been better... this one was at her son's funeral... bad choice Deseret News! Love all the news about missionaries around the world, I have a grandson serving in the LA Mission.
