After two years on the job, WMAR-TV news director Staci Feger-Childers has resigned, saying she had burned out in pushing to revive the station's flagging fortunes. General manager Drew Berry informed staffers of her departure during brief meetings yesterday morning. "It's a job with a high burnout factor," Feger-Childers, 35, said yesterday. She said she would take several months to determine her next career step, and has not decided for certain whether she will stay in television news.

WMAR-TV news director Staci Feger-Childers is naturally buoyant, and while she's doing rapid-fire run-through of the day's stories, she is trying very, very hard to sit still. Her station doesn't have that luxury. Feger-Childers, 34, came to Baltimore six months ago, and she's been taking stock ever since. Here's what she sees: a station whose newscasts are mired at the bottom of the Baltimore market. WMAR has an experienced and capable staff that's been demoralized by a series of short-lived, low-impact news directors.

A decade ago, University of Pennsylvania history professor Thomas Childers was talking to a group of students about dates that would always be remembered. "When I mentioned Dec. 7, 1941, I got blank stares. They had no idea what I was talking about." Childers discovered that his students' ignorance was not limited to the date of the Japanese attack on Pearl Harbor that occurred 62 years ago today, a date that President Franklin D. Roosevelt said "would live in infamy." "I discovered they did not really know anything about World War II. There was not a single course devoted to it."

A columnist and a historian have accused best-selling author Stephen E. Ambrose of copying passages in his recent book, The Wild Blue. The two cite details and phrasing very similar to descriptions in The Wings of Morning, a book by one of the accusers, the historian Thomas Childers. Both books tell the stories of World War II bomber pilots. Ambrose included footnotes in his book acknowledging that Childers' book was a source of information in the relevant pages. But Ambrose does not acknowledge quoting from the book or borrowing phrases or wording.

"Rules of Engagement" makes one long for the subtle nuances of "A Few Good Men." This military courtroom drama is full of questions, but woefully short of answers. It stars Samuel L. Jackson as a Marine colonel who orders his troops to open fire on civilians attacking the U.S. embassy in Yemen, and Tommy Lee Jones as the longtime friend who defends him at the resulting court-martial. "Rules of Engagement" offers a Marine-centric view of the world, where everyone out of uniform is a spineless self-aggrandizer who just doesn't understand.
