    When "Inside Schwartz" creator Stephen Engel was in college, dating was relatively easy. He'd meet a girl in class, hang out -- and presto! -- he had a girlfriend.

    By Teresa Strasser

    September 6, 2001 | 8:00 pm

    Last night, I was watching "Big Brother," a show mocked for its lack of action. Call me crazy, but to me, it's Chekhov; it's all about the subtext. Anyway, a contestant named Bunky was voted out of the house last week. That's when I realized that slowly, quietly, the new breed of...
