Pieces of column too short to use: Richard Hunter, the mild-mannered Baltimore school superintendent, has a bodyguard? To guard him from what? Food fights in the Mervo cafeteria? Big kids picking on him on the Ashburton Elementary playground? There doesn't seem to be any clear reason Dr. Bland has a bodyguard following him around while the city schools can probably use every security guard they can get. There haven't been any specific threats by kooks and, let's face it, even Dr. Bland's fans don't exactly mob him for autographs.

Why is it that every time Mayor Stephanie Rawlings-Blake has a "solidarity walk," she always has escorts, bodyguards, etc. Could it be that she knows that the streets of Baltimore are not safe be it day or night? Dave Miceli, Abingdon

As a movie, "The Bodyguard" isn't much, but as a ghost story, it's eerie. The ghost that haunts it belongs to Steve McQueen, whose white-jazz coolness turned him into an American icon in such films as "The Magnificent Seven," "Papillon," "The Great Escape" and the great "Bullitt" not so very long ago.The script of "The Bodyguard" was written by a very young Lawrence Kasdan in 1975 expressly for McQueen, who was otherwise occupied, dying of cancer at the...

THE BODYGUARD(Warner, $99.99, rated R, 1992)Billy Crystal's Fernando character said, "It is better to look good than to feel good." Although it gets a great laugh, one has the sense watching "The Bodyguard" that it is a truism amongHollywood types, at least with the producers of this shallow celluloid sleight-of-hand.There's only the tiniest hint of a story here -- and even less plot. Essentially, the audience is supposed to feel satisfied that they are able to watch two pretty celebrities, Kevin Costner and Whitney Houston, wander around in the stylish and glitzy world of stardom, while enjoying a soundtrack featuring new songs by Ms. Houston.

After she publicly criticized a landfill repair contract and cooperated with federal investigators, Jeanne Robinson testified yesterday, a bodyguard for George G. Balog, Baltimore's public works director at the time, started trailing her. Robinson, a Public Works engineer, said she spotted the man she knew only as Rocky watching her as she left her young children with her mother before work. Robinson said she waved to him, thinking he was admiring her children. She grew concerned, she said, when she noticed him following her at lunch and after work.

No one would ever question the toughness of new Ravens fullback Vonta Leach these days. Respect for him soars every time he knocks another NFL linebacker to the ground. Yet brawn is only part of the reason why Leach is the league's highest-paid fullback playing right now. For the Coke Machine, a nickname that comes from his compact shape, his journey has always been about believing. Leach never doubted his ability when he was an undrafted rookie out of East Carolina in 2004.

I have received some feedback about my column on the Ravens' top draft pick, Michael Oher, the offensive tackle from Mississippi. I simply wanted to point out in this morning's column that the Ravens finally got a tough, physical bodyguard for quarterback Joe Flacco. If some people thought I was questioning his intelligence and were offended, those were not my intentions. There was never any intention to offend anyone, especially Oher and his family.

ATLANTA -- Just imagine that Vice President Dick Cheney went on a visit to a foreign country - Great Britain, let's say - and that one of his Secret Service agents was shot several times and killed by a drunken bodyguard hired by the Brits. Let's say the British government quickly hushed up the crime and spirited the bodyguard out of the country, leaving him free to go about his life. Americans would, of course, be outraged - and rightly so. They would demand justice for the slain Secret Service agent.

JERUSALEM -- The head of the Palestinian intelligence service was seriously hurt and a bodyguard was killed yesterday in an explosion in the Gaza Strip that the agency labeled an assassination attempt. The blast, coming amid tensions between rival Palestinian factions, stoked worries of further clashes between the new Hamas-led government and the once-dominant Fatah movement led by Palestinian Authority President Mahmoud Abbas. Gen. Tareq Abu Rajab, an Abbas ally who commands the Palestinian General Intelligence service, was stepping into an elevator in the agency's heavily guarded compound in Gaza City when the blast occurred, Palestinian security officials said.

BEIRUT, Lebanon - A powerful bomb targeted the motorcade of Lebanon's outgoing defense minister in a wealthy Christian suburb yesterday, wounding the official and a dozen others and killing a member of his entourage. It was the first assassination attempt against a top official here since former Prime Minister Rafik Hariri was killed by a car bomb in February. The attack on Elias Murr signified a break in the pattern of bombings that have rattled Beirut in recent months. Until yesterday, those targeted for death have shared a common characteristic: They have been outspoken, even brazen, critics of Syria's longtime domination over Lebanese affairs.

ONE OF THE occupational hazards for good journalists in the former Soviet Union is murder. Just last week, an independent Azerbaijani editor named Elmar Huseinov was gunned down. But an older case is grabbing the headlines right now - a persistent stain of sorts that the years could not wash out. In 2000, the headless body of a reporter named Heorhiy Gongadze was found in a forest outside Kiev, and Ukrainians have believed ever since that the man who was president at the time - Leonid D. Kuchma - was behind the crime.

LOS ANGELES - The first time he saw a mysterious man with a blond crew cut near the home of Robert Blake, the actor's bodyguard didn't give it much thought. Earle Caldwell said he told police Thursday that a man in his 20s first showed up outside Blake's home about two months ago. Often, the man would sit in a black pickup truck and stare at the property. Blake, who played a police officer in the 1970s TV drama "Baretta," saw him as such a threat that he had the couple's infant daughter stay with relatives about 20 miles away.

KIEV, Ukraine - A decade ago Leonid D. Kuchma, the former manager of a rocket factory, ran for president of Ukraine and, in the process of winning, won applause for his pledge to press for political and economic reforms. Now, as Kuchma prepares to leave the presidency after two five-year terms, he seems a lesser figure - a president implicated in widespread corruption, vote-rigging and the murder of one of his critics. The shift in his political standing reflects larger changes in Ukraine, where voters will elect a new president Sunday and have already shown their impatience with pervasive criminality and a quasi-authoritarian government.

KARBALA, Iraq - Four U.S. soldiers were killed late Thursday night and early yesterday in two incidents - a roadside bombing in Baghdad and a brief, fierce firefight between U.S. paratroopers and gunmen in this Shiite Muslim holy city south of the capital. Their deaths brought to 336 the number of Americans reported killed since the war began March 20. The Karbala clash also marked the deadliest incident for U.S. troops since Sept. 18, when three soldiers were slain near the city of Tikrit.
