While mega-star Nicole Kidman continues to enjoy a Maryland autumn from a slightly secluded rented house on Boyce Avenue in Ruxton, reported sightings of the ex-Mrs. Tom Cruise continue to swirl throughout North Baltimore. She has been seen at the Merritt Athletic Club working out, dining on sushi in Towson, and now in Graul's Market in Ruxton. There hasn't been such a celebrity buzz in the upscale community since the early 1990s, when actor Ned Beatty, in town to reprise his role of Stanley Bolander on Homicide: Life on the Street, rented a house on Berwick Road.

JAMES HARP, the music director at St. Mark's Lutheran Church, called the other day to ask what I knew of Baltimore-born stage and film star Francis X. Bushman. Jim will be playing the organ tomorrow for the 1925 silent Ben-Hur, which gets my vote as one of the most amazing films I've ever seen. As a child, I heard much about Bushman (1883-1966), who plays Messala, not so much because he was a big deal on the screen. The biographical details issued from my grandmother, Lily Rose, who once spotted the great Bushman and his girlfriend, actress Beverly Bayne, as they sailed down Broadway in his chauffeured, 20-foot-long, gold-trimmed, lavender Marmon limousine.

Matthew Wood Kinlein was a child in the early 1970s when his father, Richard, was Howard County's gung-ho, drug-fighting state's attorney. The elder Kinlein occasionally personally led predawn police raids to round up young adults identified by undercover officers as drug sellers and users.Now 26, Matthew Kinlein knows today how some of those people must have felt when they opened their doors to find the state's attorney and police officers ready with arrest warrants.State park rangers took Matthew Kinlein into custody Sunday morning as he emerged from one of three cultivated patches of home-grown marijuana growing in a remote section of Patapsco State Park in Carroll County, rangers said.

KAGGA KAMMA GAME RESERVE, South Africa -- About 50 bushmen have returned to the rugged land of their ancestors here, hoping to preserve prehistoric traditions and save a vanishing tribe.Dressed in antelope skins and armed with wooden bows and arrows, they hunt small game across miles of rocky terrain in the manner that bushmen hunted in this region for thousands of years.The bushmen are an oddity now in South Africa, with its modern cities and modern-day struggles for power. They are hunters and gatherers who once moved freely through the country, from the Kalahari Desert to the Cape of Good Hope.

BOSTON - As an average American confronted by roughly 500 ads a day, I have developed an immunity to the allure of commercials. Oh, from time to time, I become fond of a little quacking duck, but I can never remember what AFLAC stands for. I become amused by the woman getting altogether too much "organic experience" from Herbal Essences shampoo, but it doesn't lead me to the check-out counter. Nevertheless, I think I swallowed the biggest line of all: the ad for ads, the commercial for commercials.
