Ozone−Park−born thespian Peter Facinelli will be seen on screens across the country later this month in one of the fall’s most anticipated films. The actor said the role of Dr. Carlisle Cullen, in director Catherine Hardwicke’s “Twilight,” was one into which he could really sink his teeth. Comment.

Travel Agents

Until recently, I was a travel editor at a major guidebook publisher. The job required heavy text-editing, and contrary to what the title suggests, no travel. What made the job unbearable was that it took something I loved — travel — and made me hate it.

Only the locales would change. Comment.
