Back in the 1990s, Bill Clinton talked a lot about building "a bridge to the 21st century." Right now, his wife looks like an unappealing detour back to the 20th. The Iowa caucuses, it should be noted, are rarely as decisive as they may appear. Since 1976, only one candidate has won Iowa on the way to becoming president - George W. Bush in 2000. But if you can't win the election in Iowa, you can put yourself in a solid position to lose it, which is what Hillary Rodham Clinton and John Edwards accomplished last week.

Jeff Lewatowski trudged upstream, the chilly, knee-deep Gunpowder River flowing around his waterproof overalls. Following the inside curve of a bend, he picked a likely looking spot and settled in, much like the trout he planned to catch. "They want to take advantage of the bugs," said Lewatowski, 39, who lives in Havre de Grace and guides fishing trips around the state. "They get very excitable the more bugs there are on the water. … They compete in a spot in the creek to sit. " May through June is sulphur mayfly season, with thousands of mayfly nymphs swimming up from sunken logs and rocks to molt and flutter away for their brief adult lives.

Politics Lost: How American Democracy Was Trivialized by People Who Think You're Stupid Joe Klein Doubleday / 272 pages / $23.95 From the epigraph to the final page of Politics Lost, it is obvious that author Joe Klein is a lover of the elections business. The carefully chosen epigraph comes from Edward I. Koch, spoken during a campaign for mayor of New York City: "If you agree with me on nine out of twelve issues, vote for me. If you agree with me on twelve out of twelve issues, see a psychiatrist."

A big trend in classical music over the past several decades is historical authenticity, the attempt to re-create how works sounded when they were new. This usually involves repertoire from distant centuries, but pieces from relatively recent times can come in for the authentic treatment, too. A case in point is the latest Baltimore Symphony Orchestra program, devoted entirely to George Gershwin. This presentation, conducted by Marin Alsop and showcasing the superb French pianist Jean-Yves Thibaudet, does raise an interesting question about the whole historic reclamation business.

Howard Dean is the buzz candidate of summer 2003. In the span of a few months, the former Vermont governor distinguished himself from the crowded field of Democratic presidential hopefuls by winning an online primary, raising more money than his competitors in the latest filing period and recruiting a quarter of a million supporters via the Internet. Last week, Dean's captivation of the national media became official when all three major news magazines ran features about him, and two put him on their covers.

Though most moviegoers never got past 8 Mile, there was another Detroit movie released last year -- well, almost a Detroit movie. Joe Carnahan set his low-budget cop drama Narc there, but the producers insisted on taking advantage of Toronto's cheaper dollar and production rebates. With that, Jason Patric, cast as a damaged detective who reluctantly joins wild-card vet Ray Liotta to find his partner's killer, threatened to bolt. A stickler for authenticity -- "Toronto's not Detroit," he said -- Patric stayed on the force only after he was assigned a guerrilla camera crew who spent a couple of days in the city making sure the film had real Detroit grit.

After nine decades of serving corned beef sandwiches on East Lombard Street, it's now official: Attman's Delicatessen is the real deal -- as are 32 other Baltimore-area museums, restaurants, tours and inns, according to city officials. In move that is part tourism, part history and a big chunk of civic boosterism, sites can now have their Baltimore "authenticity" certified by the city. The first round of chosen sites was announced yesterday by Mayor Martin O'Malley in a ceremony with red-ribbon presentations and handshakes.

CBS anchor Dan Rather vigorously defended yesterday his reliance on memos that appeared to show President Bush avoided fulfilling his service obligations as a lieutenant in the Air National Guard in the early 1970s, even as a controversy intensified over the authenticity of those documents. The original report, broadcast on Wednesday's edition of 60 Minutes, sparked a near-immediate backlash on conservative Web sites and radio programs. Forensic experts subsequently interviewed by other news outlets - including The Washington Post, the Los Angeles Times, the Associated Press and NBC News, among others - questioned the authenticity of the documents, pointing to typeface and spacing features more consistent with modern computer word-processing programs than IBM typewriters of the era. Also, the family members of the squad leader who reportedly wrote the memos and who died two decades ago denounced the story, saying they did not believe the memos are genuine.

With a flourish suggesting secrets yet to be told, Lawrence X. Cusack 3rd waved several folders in the air, only to return them quickly to his satchel. Then he described them: enigmatic jottings on index cards, on torn pieces of White House stationery, in the margins of contracts, in President John F. Kennedy's hand.If what he says is true, those documents -- said to have been found among papers left by Cusack's late father, a trusted lawyer to the Roman Catholic Archdiocese of New York -- are worth a fortune, since they would alter the historical understanding of Kennedy by providing proof of certain indiscretions, including a long-rumored affair with Marilyn Monroe.

No one can beat the Irish when it comes to spinning a yarn. And when they weave threads of satire and bittersweetness in between the humor, we're talking a little bit of verbal heaven. "Stones in His Pockets" is a cool example. The witty work from 1996 by Belfast-born playwright Marie Jones receiving an exhilarating production at Center Stage, is, above all, a great yarn. If you only heard the lines spoken - on the radio, say - this story about the collision of a rural Irish town and a big, dumb movie company from the States would easily spring to life.

I put a question to one of Southeast Baltimore's busiest restaurateurs: What is the secret behind the steady growth of so many Latino restaurants flourishing along the old commercial corridor in Highlandtown? "People are looking for portions, price and quality," said Carlos Cruz, the owner of Carlos O'Charlies, a place that now qualifies as an Eastern Avenue Latin-American institution. Diners are likely also looking for a comfortable place, in a traditional neighborhood that looks ... well, very Baltimore.

Well, that didn't take long. Just as several genuine scandals cast the Obama administration in an unfavorable light, Republicans in Congress are already overreaching - with hyperbolic comparisons to Watergate, calls for special prosecutors, outrageous claims about President Barack Obama's involvement, possible impeachment and assorted hyper-partisan rhetoric. Just this weekend, there was Sen. Rand Paul on TV claiming there was a "written policy" at the Internal Revenue Service to target people opposed to President Obama.

For most people, buying anything antique is tricky business since there's a persistent fear that an expensive purchase might not be authentic. Buying American furniture can be particularly tricky, because pieces in the Queen Anne, Chippendale and Federal tastes have been made from the 18th century to the present day. Since these styles were widely interpreted in their own eras and have survived and been revived for so long, often it's difficult to tell...

Former gymnast Cathy Rigby may not be the musical theater's vision of Annie Oakley -- that vision was forged by Ethel Merman, who created the title role in the original 1946 production of "Annie Get Your Gun."Rigby is a different kind of Oakley -- the more realistic, athletic, tomboy kind. It's a little difficult to picture Merman doing some of Oakley's more acrobatic stunts. Not so with Rigby, who not only has her own athletic credentials, she's the same height as pint-sized Oakley.Sure, Merman's voice was a cannon next to Rigby's smaller and, in the lower register, weaker tones.

Federico Lopez is proud of the food of his hometown. That town, Mexico City, should be proud of him, too.
