Ford Motor Co. executives have been touting their new Mercury Capri convertible as a fun car.At first, the description sounded like a copout: a corporate excuse for a car that no doubt would fall short of Mazda's red-hot Miata -- a real sports car.Expectations sank on word that the Capri wasn't a serious sports car, but a front-wheel-drive "fun car." But, surprise -- the Ford execs were right -- this is a fun car.The 1991 Capri began as a concept car that Ford of Europe first exhibited at the 1983 Frankfurt Motor Show.

It's no surprise that Dr. Ben Carson is a world-class traveler. Being a world-renowned surgeon who has been named one of the nation's 20 foremost physicians and scientists by CNN and Time Magazine and one of 89 "Living Legends" by the Library of Congress, requires a great deal of coming and going. Carson, director of pediatric neurosurgery at Johns Hopkins Children's Center, also heads the Carson Scholars Foundation, providing scholarships to students for academic and humanitarian accomplishments in more than 30 states.

Capricha, a half-sister to graded-stakes winner Aly's Alley, attracted a sales-topping $240,000 at the Fasig-Tipton Midlantic auction of 2-year-olds in training and older horses Tuesday at the Timonium sales pavilion. A daughter of the unraced mare Aly Capri and Pleasant Colony, the Kentucky-bred Capricha was purchased by William Marquard's Eaglestone Farm, which owns Aly's Alley, runner-up in the 1998 Breeders' Cup Juvenile. The only other six-figure sale involved an Unbridled's Song-Highland Vixen colt acquired for $100,000 by trainer Stanley Hough.

For years, people in other countries have watched dubbed exports of some of our finest TV shows to better understand American life. Imagine what a well-rounded picture of us they have, after countless episodes of Dallas, Beverly Hills 90210, The Bold and the Beautiful and The High Chaparral. Now that the Web has made international TV shows available anytime we want, I decided to return the anthropological favor and study another country's lifestyle through its television. I began my Italian journey with Provaci Ancora Prof 2, a series about a high school literature teacher who, despite having a job and a daughter and a perfectly nice husband, still finds time to solve crimes and experience unspoken lust and pulsating sexual tension (but no actual sex)

Good bread and perfectly ripe tomatoes are the heart and soul of a satisfying lunch inspired by colorful Capri, a tiny isle just off Italy's sunny Sorrentine peninsula. Bake shops on Capri are known for a bread wreath with a flourish of S-shaped decorations.Thickly sliced or broken into chunks, this ornate bread is a satisfying complement for salads. (Italians especially enjoy it with a salad of tomatoes, basil and mozzarella.) Thin slices of the bread make fine sandwiches or toast.Italian Wreath BreadMakes 1 (10-inch)

When "Catskills on Broadway" was still on Broadway, an unexpected guest dropped in one night."This is the best timing story!" roars Freddie Roman, the borscht belt comic who originated the idea for the hit revue, which is currently on tour with its quartet of New York stars -- Dick Capri, Mal Z. Lawrence, Louise DuArt, and, of course, Roman himself. It begins a one-week run at the Lyric Opera House on Tuesday."A pigeon got into the theater," Capri interjects -- more out of enthusiasm than an attempt to steal Roman's punch line.

Player of the YearAdrian Titus, Chesapeake, Jr., F: The Chesapeake Cougars lost their top three scorers from last year's state championship team, leaving coach Earl Eckhardt with the question of who would put the ball in the net. Titus, with a great touch inside the 18-yard line, a quick release and a cannon for a shot, provided an emphatic answer. He finished the season with 17 goals and also had seven assists as the Cougars captured the county championship. After playing a secondary role as an outside midfielder as a sophomore, Titus boldly took on the vital role of primary finisher.

This is the season for flirty dresses, cutesy Capri pants and strappy sandals. Which is all the more reason why Naomi Miller's kicky, red, patent-leather boots make such a bold statement. Just by pulling them on, Miller told the world so many things about herself: She is a woman who knows what she likes. She is a woman who bucks trends. She is a woman who isn't afraid to do what she darn well pleases -- no matter what fashion forecasters say. WONDERING IF YOU WERE GLIMPSED? Check out baltimoresun.

Cruising through the city's urban centers, you might have noticed on young men a curious kind of pants, er, shorts. No, pants. Wait ... shorts. Here in Baltimore, they're calling these too-short/too-long curiosities "men's capris." But they're not the chic and slender capris made famous by fashion icons such as Audrey Hepburn and Jackie Kennedy. Baltimore has added its own flair to the capri. And other cities are starting to take notice. Over the past few years, these locally popular, long, wide shorts have become such a runaway hit that some manufacturers say they are now selling them in fashion centers such as New York and Philadelphia -- and retailers as far away as Atlanta and Nashville, Tenn.

CBS will no longer air three Miller beer commercials and NBC decided to drop five, all on grounds they were unfair to rival Anheuser-Busch. One of the ads showed a Budweiser deliveryman wearing Capri pants. In a letter to Miller Brewing Co. of Milwaukee, CBS said the three commercials were "unduly disparaging" and would be dropped Dec. 30. NBC is dropping five Miller ads, NBC spokeswoman Shannon Jacobs said. Miller has targeted Anheuser-Busch Cos. Inc.'s 50 percent market share in the United States with a series of ads promoting Miller Lite as having lower carbohydrates and being preferred by drinkers over Bud Light, the best-selling U.S. beer.

A Memorable Place A minor infraction on the Via Krupp By Matthew Blair SPECIAL TO THE SUN On Capri, you realize that beauty always comes at a price. Sublime waterfront views are not always arrived at easily -- or sometimes even legally. After a few hours of laborious walking to the higher reaches of the rocky Italian island in search of panoramic views, my wife and I decided to make our way down to the water for an afternoon of relaxation on the famous beaches of Marina Piccola. As we made our way down a pedestrian path, we were confronted with an iron gate marked "No Trespassing."

Capri pants are back. And that's bad news. The fashion item suburbanites used to call pedal-pushers is everywhere this season, on every rack in every women's department in every clothing store. They are the no-choice choice this summer. Let me be frank. Capri pants were a bad idea when my mother, with her test-tube figure, wore them in the 1950s and they are a bad idea now. They were a bad idea for every woman except Audrey Hepburn and Sandra Dee 50 years ago, and they are a bad idea for every woman except teen models now. To wear them, you must have a perfect rear end, perfect calves, perfect ankles and perfectly manicured toes, and if you look that good you should be wearing short shorts, not something it looks like you outgrew.
