And if she doesn't make the adjustment to baby wipes, I'll know she's not completely clean."

In the 'Flow' - The Boston Globe (1432 words)
Howard, who grew up in Cleveland and Los Angeles, says at one time he was intent on being a neurosurgeon, then a veterinarian, then a songwriter.
Howard says that his family was too poor to seek immediate medical attention beyond the emergency room, no steroids were prescribed to reduce the swelling, and that eight months later a doctor gave him only a 5 percent chance of recovering the feeling in that part of his face.
What Howard brought to the screen beyond a solid crunk beat, which he caught by hanging out with southern rappers, was an ability to humanize rather than vilify a character who is not overtly likable, according to Singleton.
