You could call "Calendar Girl, Cop, Killer? The Bambi Bembenek Story" a cheap piece of network sweeps trash.But it's not that good.The ABC made-for-TV movie is worth noting, though, because it suggests how advanced the brain and talent drain has become at the broadcast networks: They can't even make good sweeps sleaze any more.Most of the thinking on this film, which airs at 9 tonight on WJZ-Channel 13, appears to have gone into the advertising campaign. It features actress Lindsay Frost in fishnet stockings and a black bra with one of the shoulders straps worn off the shoulder.

Goucher College plans to hire professional bowmen over the holidays to thin the population of white-tailed deer that roam the leafy 287-acre campus - a move that has provoked an outcry from surprised students. An hour after campus officials sent an e-mail Wednesday announcing the deer kill, a protest petition was circulating among a student body known for its activism. On Facebook, a student group titled "F - - Goucher, save the DEER!" had 79 members last night. "I'm so upset," said sophomore Lily Alden, who is organizing the petition drive and had collected more than 50 signatures in 24 hours.

Uck. Urp. Gack. Blech.As a celebration of naughty impulses, you can't do much better than this collection of nastiness that's a refreshing anecdote from all those sugary, arty, refined animation collections making the rounds.This one, which plays at the Charles this weekend and next, is about as refined as a toilet seat. It assembles 20 of the most grotesque examples of animation ever done for a 90-minute gagfest. If you don't like nasty, I'd advise steering well clear.Some are old favorites and some are just old but not favorite.

A few weeks ago, this column was an unrestrained tirade on the subject of deer - focusing on the animals' insidious quest to crash through the windshields of passing motorists. That same day, through no design I'm aware of, another section of The Sun ran a sensitive and sympathetic feature by Abigail Tucker about two Baltimore County women who have made it their mission to protect the adorable white-tailed creatures from the depredations of bloodthirsty hunters. Judging by the e-mail received by Tucker and myself, our readership is rich in Bambi-phobic misanthropes.

It took 14 months and 9,500 hours to restore and preserve all 110,000 frames of Walt Disney's classic 1942 animated film Bambi, the company says, and the end result is the just-released two-disc DVD ($30). "This is the first of a major corporate initiative to do film restoration at the studio," says Disney animation director Dave Bossert, who served as artistic supervisor for the Bambi restoration. The studio initiative, Bossert adds, "is about commerce to some degree, but it is about preserving artwork.

POZAREVAC, Yugoslavia -- The bulldozers groaned, the welders sweated rivers and a feverish army of Serbian laborers poured concrete, gravel and paint yesterday as the son of Yugoslav President Slobodan Milosevic personally orchestrated the furious pace of construction.But in a nation where NATO bombs and missiles left a wasteland of broken bridges, smashed factories, ruined railways and impotent power plants, this madcap public works project was at none of the above.It was Bambi Park, 6 acres of kiddie pools, skateboard runs, minicar courses and a pirate-ship playground -- along with the centrally located "Extreme Bar" for parents -- all in the heart of the president's hometown.

The story had sex, violence and, well, more sex. In other words, the "Hunting for Bambi" controversy was a dream come true for the news media and outraged commentators. Too bad it was a scam. In mid-July, a Web site advertised that, for a fat fee, men could "hunt" naked women with paintball guns in the Nevada desert. A Las Vegas television station was the first to report on the "Bambi hunts," and predictably, a storm of condemnation followed. All along, some online observers and a few print journalists raised questions about the site and its owner, Michael Burdick: Were the hunts Burdick was selling real?

I have been a fly fisherman much of my life, often spending 40 or more days a year with a rod in my hand, on trout streams all over the United States, in Canada, England and Ireland. I know the lives and habits of wild trout, and of other aquatic life. I have read dozens and dozens of books on the fancy. Some have been elaborately, sometimes brilliantly, technical; others achieve extraordinary literary artistry. I know of none that as successfully conflates both those feats as The Stream, by Brian Clarke (Overlook, 240 pages, $23.95)
