By Scott D. Pierce Deseret News BEVERLY HILLS, Calif. -- "Eli Stone" is about a lawyer who might be a prophet. And it's one of the most entertaining shows on television. "I think it's resonated with people because they can laugh and cry in a single hour," said executive producer Marc Guggenheim. "I think it's because it deals with universal issues of spirituality and faith, and I don't mean that in a dogmatic kind of way. I mean that in a human condition kind of way." Eli (Jonny Lee...

"Oh, George! Pop Superstar Michael Popped For Smokin' In the Boys' Room!" The tabloids find great joy in dragging down the rich and famous when they fall from grace. British singer George Michael was at the top of the music world in the '80s and early '90s thanks to his infectious, highly melodic mix of R&B/dance classics and ballads, both with Wham!

Word of the Day
cock-a-hoop
  • Exultant; jubilant; triumphant; on the high horse.
  • Tipsy; slightly intoxicated.
This word may come from the phrase 'to set cock on hoop,' or 'to drink festively.' Its origin otherwise is unclear. A theory, according to the Word Detective, is that it's a 'transliteration of the French phrase 'coq a huppe,' meaning a rooster displaying its crest ('huppe') in a pose of proud defiance.' Therefore, 'cock-a-hoop' would 'liken a drunken man to a boastful and aggressive rooster.'
