Alan Jackson can't help but wonder: Where did the "real" country music go? "Right now, it seems like it's gone," said Jackson, who headlines Merriweather Post Pavilion on Friday. "It's not that I'm against all that's out there. There's some good music, good songwriting and good artists out there, but there's really no country stuff left. " The 54-year-old singer/songwriter with two Grammy Awards and nearly 60 million albums sold worldwide doesn't hate the slick, pop sound that has become increasingly ingrained in country music.

WHO I AMAlan Jackson (Arista 18759)It's hard not to like Alan Jackson. Even in a field where good manners and a friendly demeanor are assumed to be standard equipment, Jackson stands out as one of country music's most amenable personalities. Yet that all-around nice guy image is precisely the problem with Jackson's third album, "Who I Am." Being so full with good intentions, he seems virtually incapable of putting any kind of edge on the music, and while that isn't a problem on touching, confessional songs like "Job Description," it pretty much takes the teeth out of up-tempo material like his remake of "Summertime Blues."

For country music neo-superstar Alan Jackson, who performs at the Rocky Gap Country Bluegrass Festival, near Cumberland, Saturday, it all must still seem like a dream come true.After all, it was only five or six years ago that the tall, blue-eyed, blonde, Marlboro Man-handsome singer and his wife Denise reluctantly decided to sell their house in their hometown of Newnan, Ga., and relocate to Nashville."It was a big jump for me," admits Jackson, who this year won the Academy of Country Music's New Male Singer award, was the Nashville Network's 1990 Star of Tomorrow, and was chosen by the editors of R&R, a leading music trade magazine, as Best New Artist of 1990.

Scott Adams used to struggle for material for "Dilbert," his renowned, syndicated comic strip that chronicles a pointy-haired boss and his tormented staff, such as Tina the Tech Writer and Asok the Intern. But in recent years, real-life tales of worker disgust and job frustration have poured into Adams' electronic mailbox and provide fresh fodder for the strip as jaw-dropping as any fictional cartoon. There was the e-mail he received about a worker who was asked to contribute to his own farewell party.
