Well, no sir, he doesn't quite get it.The old man, tan and fit enough, seems somewhat bemused by all the fuss. To him it was a job. He did it. He survived it. He went on with his life."

WASHINGTON -- The Senate Armed Services Committee, strongly disagreeing with President Bush, says fired Air Force Chief of Staff Gen. Michael J. Dugan should not be allowed to remain on active duty until Jan. 1 in order to boost his annual pension by $17,650.Defense Secretary Dick Cheney dismissed General Dugan Sept. for disclosing U.S. military options against Iraq. But Mr. Bush told the Senate he would let General Dugan stay on active duty until the new year, when across-the-board pay raises for top military officers go into effect.

Relax, Angela Lansbury fans, NBC has a scheduling ploy for you.Assuming the World Series goes five games, CBS will be pre-empting Lansbury's popular series "Murder, She Wrote" on Sunday night. But, at the same moment it usually comes on the air -- 8 o'clock -- NBC (Channel 2, WMAR) will show a new TV movie starring Lansbury, "The Love She Sought."And, in fact, it's a lot better than an episode of "Murder, She Wrote." Though its plot always teeters on the edge of cliche and contrivance, "The Love She Sought" is constantly pulled back onto the terra firma of solid drama by excellent acting and insightful characterizations.

CHESTERTOWN -If Tanya Banks-Christensen hadn't acted on a certain whim as a college senior, it's safe to say she would not have scored a big-screen cameo at the end of Pirates of the Caribbean: Dead Man's Chest. Or was it Pirates of the Caribbean: At World's End? She can't remember. And for that matter, the shot consisted only of her legs on the ship's boom. Either way, her brush with Hollywood was just an amusing caper in an unusual and wholly unexpected career that has allowed her to sail replica sloops and schooners up and down the Eastern Seaboard.

A plainclothes Baltimore City police officer was shot twice in the face last night while attempting to make an undercover drug purchase in the Seton Hill neighborhood, officials said. The officer, a seven-year veteran of the force, was rushed to Maryland Shock Trauma Center, where he was in critical but stable condition last night. His injuries were not considered life-threatening. The 33-year-old officer and his partner, also in plain clothes, were at the intersection of Pennsylvania Avenue and Orchard Street shortly after 8 p.m. when they saw a group of people who appeared to be involved in drug transactions, said Police Commissioner Frederick H. Bealefeld III. The officer was shot in the jaw and cheek when he tried to make an undercover purchase, Bealefeld said.

ST. MICHAELS - The deck of the Caleb W. Jones gleams with a fresh coat of white paint, as does the new cabin aft. Down below, though, the 55-year-old skipjack is showing its age - and even some daylight. You can poke three fingers through a hole in its rotted wooden hull. Built in 1953, this remnant of the Chesapeake Bay's fading fleet of sail-powered oyster dredging boats is getting an extreme makeover at the Chesapeake Bay Maritime Museum. On dry ground for now, the Caleb's hull is being taken apart and put back together again, a timber and plank at a time.

One good thing you can say about the effect of the stock market swoon on 401(k) retirement accounts: It has pushed some employees to examine their statements. Many workers hadn't paid attention since they first signed up, often when they were hired. This neglect meant their 401(k) asset mix and the amount deducted from their paychecks never changed. Some investors have been making moves: About 6 percent of assets in 401(k) plans were shifted out of stocks and into bonds last year, mostly during tumultuous October and November, according to an analysis by human resources consultant Hewitt Associates.

A police sweep of Anne Arundel jewelry stores found that 18 had violated laws designed to prevent the sale of stolen jewelry - including a downtown Annapolis shop owned by a state delegate. As part of an effort to curtail a rise in property crimes in the county, undercover officers found that stores did not ask for identification before purchasing precious metals, resold them before an 18-day waiting period had passed and did not report sales to police as required by law. Several stores that are not licensed to buy jewelry also purchased items from the officers.

I remember the last movie I saw at the Patterson Theater in Highlandtown. Actually, I don't remember the movie itself - at that point near the end of its life, it was a second-run theater charging a dollar or two - but I remember keeping an eye on the floor as much as the screen so I could lift my feet if a rat skittered by. Today, the theater is vibrant and bristles with artistic rather than verminous activity. It is the home base of the Creative Alliance - the quirky arts organization that sponsors classes, shows and festivals on everything from screen painting to burlesque performance - which took over the shuttered theater about six years ago. "It was a huge, empty, old box," Megan Hamilton, the program director of the alliance, said of the theater, which had closed in 1995.

In a discovery that researchers hope could lead to better treatments for intractable brain tumors, scientists from Johns Hopkins Kimmel Cancer Center and Duke University Medical Center have found a genetic defect in a large number of common brain cancers and believe it could hold clues to why some people with the disease fare better than others. The findings, published in today's New England Journal of Medicine, could ultimately help determine biologically how deadly a tumor is, providing far more information than what doctors can now learn by examining these cancers under a microscope.

Luanna Azulay's excitement about her first trip to Israel is laced with trepidation. Her family wishes she would have just stayed safe at home in Essex. Azulay, a junior at the University of Maryland, Baltimore County, is one of about 80 area students who flew to Israel on Sunday with a program that offers Jewish young people free trips to the country. When she signed up months ago, she had no idea that on the eve of her departure, Israel would be deep into an intense strike against Palestinian militants in the Gaza Strip and that each time she opened a newspaper or turned on the television, she would be inundated with images of gunfire, destruction and death.

The deputy major of the Baltimore Police Department's Eastern District has been suspended pending an internal investigation into allegations that he failed to disclose a series of text messages he exchanged with a man sought on a domestic violence warrant, days before authorities say he killed his wife. Police spokesman Anthony Guglielmi confirmed that Dan A. Lioi was suspended indefinitely Saturday because of "integrity issues." He would not provide details. Sources with knowledge of the situation say Lioi exchanged text messages with 33-year-old Cleaven Lawrence Williams Jr. and might not have vigorously attempted to serve the warrant for his arrest.
