NEW YORK (AP) — Spider-Man can still sling it at the box office.
“The Amazing Spider-Man 2” debuted with $92 million in North American theaters over the weekend, according to studio estimates Sunday. It was a solid opening for Sony’s Columbia Pictures, which has released five movies about Marvel’s web-slinging superhero in the last 14 years.
The release of “The Amazing Spider-Man 2” essentially kicks off Hollywood’s summer season and its annual parade of sequels and spectacle. Marvel movies have regularly commenced summer moviegoing in recent years, and the “Spider-Man 2” opening begins the season with a business-as-usual blockbuster performance.

TOLEDO - The Toledo Opera  will welcome one of the biggest stars in international opera next season to inaugurate a new series of 20th and 21st century American operas.
Bass-baritone Samuel Ramey will perform the role of tortured preacher Olin Blitch in performances of Carlisle Floyd's "Susannah" in a  fully-staged concert format, Feb. 13 and 15.
Building on the success of three seasons of stable finances and regularly sold-out productions, Toledo Opera will add a third opera to its 2014-2015 season. Each opera features a powerful female lead, pushed by impossible circumstances to take up arms to defend herself in no uncertain terms.
The season opens with performances of Puccini's Tosca in a lush, traditional production conducted by James Meena on Oct. 10 and 12 at the Valentine Theatre.

As Mad editor Feldstein influenced America's wit PDF Print E-mail

NEW YORK (AP) — Before “The Daily Show,” “The Simpsons” or even “Saturday Night Live,” Al Feldstein helped show America how to laugh at authority and giggle at popular culture.
Millions of young baby boomers looked forward to that day when the new issue of Mad magazine, which Feldstein ran for 28 years, arrived in the mail or on newsstands. Alone in their room, or huddled with friends, they looked for the latest of send-up of the president or of a television commercial. They savored the mystery of the fold-in, where a topical cartoon appeared with a question on top that was answered by collapsing the page and creating a new, and often, hilarious image.
Thanks in part to Feldstein, who died Tuesday at his home in Montana at age 88, comics were more than escapes into alternate worlds of superheroes and clean-cut children. They were a funhouse tour of current events and the latest crazes. Mad was breakthrough satire for the post-World War II era — the kind of magazine Holden Caulfield of “The Catcher In the Rye” might have read, or better, might have founded.
