SPOTLIGHT

1. CULTURE:

The bleak setting of a blockbuster movie is post-climate change, but is anyone worried?

In its opening weekend, "The Hunger Games" -- a screen adaptation of the best-selling novel by Suzanne Collins -- garnered $153 million in domestic ticket sales and more than a little buzz among bloggers and political commentators. It's the latest in a string of literary sensations to go blockbuster on film -- following close on the heels of "The Twilight Saga" and the "Harry Potter" movies -- but it's the first to confront readers with a serious political message. And although not all parties seem to agree on what, exactly, that message might be, commentators from all over the political spectrum have gotten involved.
