The liquor's packaging was decorated with a smiling skull and coffin.

When the black hat of Orthodoxy first settles upon the head of an adolescent Jew, the boy beneath the brim begins giving way to manhood."The mothers say they can't see their little boy anymore," says a rabbi who supplies hats to Baltimore's Orthodox community. "They want the smallest brim because they don't want the child to disappear beneath the hat."Though a symbol of strict adherence to Jewish law, the wearing of a black hat is custom and not law. In the United States, it was almost exclusively the domain of rabbis and yeshiva students until about 40 years ago.And it is no small statement of fashion, even among a people taught to value modesty and humility.

Police responded to the area at about 12:18 a.m. but couldn't find the suspects.

"Fear of a Black Hat," opening today at the Charles, is a kind of rap "This is Spinal Tap!" Yes, I know that "CB4" was supposed to be a rap "This Is Spinal Tap!" Well, neither film is, but "Fear of a Black Hat" comes a lot closer.Written and directed and starring Rusty Cundieff, who has worked with Spike Lee and wrote "House Party II" for Kid n' Play, it's a vividly conceived mock documentary which follows a not terribly good rap group called N.W.H. through good times (a No. 1 hit) and bad (breakup)

"Tales from the Hood" is "Tales from the Crypt" with a social conscience -- and with enough energy, skill and intelligence to resurrect a desiccated cinematic formula to life, bleeding abundantly in living color.Three gangbangers invade a local funeral home in search of an incredible stash of drugs said to be hidden there. They're met at the door by a flipped-out mortician, Mr. Simms (Clarence Williams III on a BAD hair day), whose penchant for macabre storytelling the brothers discover they must indulge before they can receive their just deserts.

"Black-Eyed Susans! Get 'em here!" Emanuel Sabedra shouted inside the front gates, above the excited throngs and circling planes and buzzing engines of golf carts zipping by.

Here were three elderly women in red hats and purple suits, "The Sassy Chicks" they called themselves, perusing the aisles of potted geraniums and petunias, clusters of tulips and bunches of daisies. Nearby, girls in pale blue dresses stepped back and forth around the maypole, streamers in hand. And business at the lemon stick stand was brisk as always, as patrons flocked to buy stocky peppermint sticks plunged into lemons, even at $2 a pop. Kevin Brown, donning a Las Vegas showgirl hat complete with gold sequins and large clusters of feathers, took it all in. "I've been coming here since I was 12," said Brown, 46, of Guilford, in between hugging and greeting old friends.

Animal scientist Temple Grandin often drops to her hands and knees to crawl through chutes in meat processing plants, striving to see the world the way pigs do - and fix what's spooking them. Sometimes it's the reflection on a puddle of water. Sometimes it's a change in floor surface, or a sudden draft of air. Sometimes it's a tiny piece of flapping plastic that no human would notice. Humans tend to "live surrounded by our ideas of things" rather than noticing what's actually there, Grandin says.

YOU PROBABLY shouldn't read this column. At least, not if you haven't yet seen the new Denzel Washington movie, Training Day. I'll be giving away a major plot point, so if you want to preserve the element of surprise, turn back now. You see, one spends a good part of the movie trying to figure out whether Mr. Washington's character, an LAPD narcotics detective named Alonzo Harris, is a committed cop or a cop who needs to be committed. Is he, in other words, a good cop whose unorthodox and even illegal methods are necessary to the dirty task at hand, or is he just a swaggering bully whose moral compass slipped down the sewer a long time ago?
