After a seven-year fling in Las Vegas, the Miss America Pageant is returning in a week to its birthplace, Atlantic City, N.J. The pageant began in 1921 as a beachfront bathing-suit contest between beauty competition winners from eight Northeastern cities. At that time, Atlantic City was a fashionable oceanfront resort with brilliant beaches, grandiose hotels, charming seaside shops and a stylish summertime following. Droves of visitors generated success for the region until economic upheavals beginning in the1960s launched the shore town into a depression that lasted decades.

Amazement was plain on 51 pretty faces when a feather-festooned figure stormed into the Rusty Scupper. This was not Attila the Hun - although, by the looks in some women's eyes, it might well have been. It was a Baltimore Hon. The Miss USA 2005 hopefuls were bewildered as Denise Whiting, owner of Cafe Hon, distributed pink and blue boas and cat's eye spectacles. Finally, someone exclaimed: "Hairspray!" Ah, hairspray, the beauty queens murmured. They may not know John Waters from John Wayne, but they understand that.

Parvesh Dhillon, the executive housekeeper at the Sheraton Columbia hotel, conducted her final sweep of 51 rooms yesterday. In each room, she slid open the mirrored closet door and checked for 20 extra hangers. She peeked her head into the bathroom and checked for two extra washcloths, bath towels and tissue boxes. Finally, Dhillon scanned the bedroom for cleanliness and a Sweet Sleeper pillow embroidered with "Miss USA 2005" on the bed. It wasn't there yet, but it will be. Fifty-one Miss USA contestants arrive today and will occupy these rooms for slightly more than two weeks as they prepare for the April 11 pageant at the Hippodrome Theatre.

Miss Afghanistan knew she was taking a risk when she strutted across a catwalk in Manila, Philippines, in a bright red bikini. "I did understand," said Vida Samadzai, a 25-year-old California State University, Fullerton, student, "that it would probably not be acceptable in my society." But she did not know she would be denounced by the government of her native land, criticized by her community and at the same time hailed by others as a role model for girls and women in the "new Afghanistan."

Oliver Stone's compelling movie, "JFK," has set off a fresh frenzy of "conspiracy fever" across the country.Who killed J.F.K.? Maybe everybody joined in, like in an Agatha Christie story. Maybe nobody killed him and he's still alive somewhere. We're gripped by an epidemic of paranoia.Well, since we're in the mood, I'd like to propose a new conspiracy: The national Democratic Party has become the party of stooges, nincompoops and clowns, and I'm beginning to suspect it may be on purpose.For years now, they have played the patsies, the fall guys who provide voters with comic relief every four years.

JOSEPH C. PALCZYNSKI wasn't even from Dundalk. But he holed up in Dundalk, and the tragic standoff didn't help the town's reputation. Long the butt of drive-time humor, Dundalk could ill afford the media's prying eye at such a vulnerable moment. Swarmy on-air interviews with residents whose grammar was less than pristine and who appeared more worried about their homes than Palczynski's captives, reinforced the tired stereotype of Dundalk as a backwater full of yokels. That's why "A Week in the Life of Dundalk," a photography show featuring more than 100 images of Dundalk's people, traditions and landmarks, "opens at a good time," says Pat Perry, the show's curator and a participant.
