In the new Marvel movie, "Captain America: The Winter Soldier," Captain America (Played by Chris Evans) is seen coolly riding his new Harley-Davidson on the streets of D.C. While watching this, I can only think of one thing: Where is Captain America's helmet? I am an intensive care unit nurse at the University of Maryland Medical Center, the first trauma hospital in the world. We regularly see motorcyclists survive devastating crashes if for no other reason because they were wearing a helmet.

In introducing Shawn Nadelen Tuesday morning, Towson athletic director Mike Waddell compared the Tigers' new men's lacrosse coach to the title character of the upcoming "Captain America" movie, citing their All-American looks and upbringing. Without the comic-book muscles or the nefarious villain, Nadelen is tasked with the Herculean assignment of reviving a school that hasn't reached the NCAA tournament since 2007, hasn't registered a winning record over that same span, and endured a 3-10 campaign — including a 1-5 mark in the Colonial Athletic Association — this past spring.

Perhaps you remember when Dr. Doom conquered the world. Or perhaps you don't. Sadly enough, even in this day and age, not everyone is comic book literate. Suffice it to say, then, that back in the 1980s, Marvel Comics published a graphic novel in which the villainous Victor von Doom achieved his dearest goal: to rule the world. And he made it a better place, too. Famine ended, the stock market climbed, crime fell, occupying armies withdrew, racial oppression vanished. Doom turned the planet into a paradise, and the only cost of his beneficence was free will.

For actor Hugo Weaving, the distance between his farm in Sydney, Australia and Los Angeles isn't just 7,500 miles, give or take. It's the distance between his identities as a pop culture icon and as a conservatory-trained actor who revels in the classical canon. Both of Weaving's faces are on prominent display in the Baltimore area this month. As a cartoon villain with inverted facial features in a red rubber mask, Weaver is stomping around the screen in the dozens of movie theaters where "Captain America" is now showing.

HOLLYWOOD -- If Matt Salinger had serious aspirations as a writer, he might have suffered the plight of living in his father's shadow. But the son of J.D. Salinger -- author of the classic novel of teen-age Angst, "Catcher in the Rye" -- aspired from an early age to be an actor."

In the end, money was deemed more American than comic-book hero Captain America or a poster featuring the Stars and Stripes. At least that's what judges in yesterday's CitySand 2002 sand sculpture contest thought. The 14th annual contest, held at Harborplace, asked local architectural and design firms to craft odes to America out of sand. GWWO Inc. of Baltimore won first prize from the judges for its depiction of a $1 bill. "We were sitting around a conference room brainstorming and someone threw a dollar on the table," joked Paul Hume of GWWO.

It burns me to no end when I hear conservative Republican types complain that this current government is re distributing wealth and how it is not and "American ideology" ("Angry Americans want responsible government," Readers respond, Oct. 7). I have news for him and all the other head-in-the-sand conservatives out there. Since 1980, conservatives and Republicans have done nothing but redistribute wealth in this country! They have raided, robbed, ransacked and ruined the middle class, stolen its wealth as well as wealth from the working class and given it to the richest Americans under the ridiculous ruse called "Trickle Down Economics.

It's a whole new Charm City from up here, puttering along the congested streets of downtown, cheesy '80s music blaring in the background, as Captain America or Smiley tells you just about everything you wanted to know (and nothing that you didn't). Past the notorious Block of adult entertainment bars and clubs briefly alluded to, past the hobos in Mount Vernon Park, who arise from their slumber to wave at the amphibious vehicle, past Maryland Shock Trauma Center, where just about every day another victim falls victim to a homicide.
