Generally events that involve little kids seem harder to me because I always try to avoid the "cute kid" photo. It seems like gloss to me, all surface and no substance. At first I thought this assignment, titled "Poetry Slam," would be no different. The assignment description called for photos of children practicing their poetry at St. John the Apostle Church in West Baltimore. I was a little skeptical about the photographs that I might make at this event, considering that poetry is a written medium.

Relieved by Michelle Obama's recent foray into higher education policy, Politico Magazine last month dubbed her soft focus first ladyship up to that point a "feminist nightmare. " On the surface, there may be something to this claim. For example, Mrs. Obama's Let's Move website currently features her gardening with school children and cooking with Elmo from Sesame Street. But feminists are wrong to say that Michelle Obama has not been active in policy. Just because her policy activism has more to do with children - and less to do with abortion rights and birth control access and paycheck fairness - does not mean she has been a retro throwback to the Mamie Eisenhower era. In fact, when I teach courses on public policy, I regularly use Michelle Obama as a case study to highlight important aspects of the policy making process.

"Iron and Silk," which opens today at the Charles, rides the very thin line between charm and preciousness, wobbling now and then, sometimes threatening to collapse into a cute widdle movie, but ultimately surviving its own worst tendencies.To begin with, it's one of those weird jobs where the author of a book stars in the movie version. Mickey Spillane tried this to disastrous consequences once; I know Mike Hammer, and Mickey: You're no Mike Hammer. Fortunately, Mark Salzman does indeed make a pretty good "Mark Franklin," though I wonder why they bothered with the name change.

Ravens wide receiver Torrey Smith and his wife, the former Chanel Williams, took to Instagram today for an inventive baby announcement . Shown sloppily scarfing down a spaghetti dinner, the two appear next to a bottle of pasta sauce. A sheet taped to the top says, "We're," for a grand announcement of "We're Prego. " On his Instagram feed, Smith wrote, " Can't believe she got me to take this pic...but it's a blessing so I'm with it. " Under her libraladii Instagram handle, Chanel Smith wrote, "Hahahha yep we're pregnant.

Ella Enchanted is one cute movie. The star, Anne Hathaway, is cute. Her prince, Hugh Dancy, is cute. The film's conceit, that Ella (Hathaway) is cursed by a spell that makes her do everything she is told, no matter what that is, is cute. The film's world, filled with medieval castles, modern attitudes and lots of '70s pop tunes, is cute. There's so much cute here, in fact, that all but the purest of heart may collapse under its weight, or at least go screaming from the theater in search of something - anything - even the least bit substantial.

Some say the world will end in fire and some say ice. I say it'll end in cuteness.I have it on good authority from a well-known local university's physics department that when the adorable Marisa Tomei and, say, the adorable Hugh Grant are cast in the same movie, there'll be some freak nuclear implosion of cuteness. A black hole will be ripped into the wall of the universe, and all of us, cute like you and un-cute like me, will be sucked into it.We almost get to that point with "Only You," which in fact has Tomei at the peak of her most cuddly adorability, but spares us global extinction on the basis of the slightly less-cute-than-Hugh-Grant American actor Robert Downey Jr. The movie, directed by Norman Jewison in an attempt to re-create the success of his "Moonstruck," follows as a young woman abandons her stable but somewhat boring life for a chance at true romantic happiness, a possibility offered her by . . . a Ouija board.

Mom and dad are dead, and the foolish government social workers want to break up our loving family. So, what's a big brother to do but dress up like a woman and call himself Mama J?If that makes sense to you, "On Our Own," a sitcom that premieres at 8:30 tonight on WJZ (Channel 13), might just be your kind of show.ABC is betting it's a show kids will love the way they love "Full House" and "Family Matters" -- two of ABC's biggest hits, which happen to be from the same producers. After tonight's showcase after "Full House," the sitcom about seven orphans will move to Sunday nights at 8:30 as alternative programming to CBS' "60 Minutes."

Tom and Sarah meet cute. They act cute. Gosh darn it, they flat-out are cute. Which is the extent of positive things to be said about Just Married, a mercilessly unappealing romantic comedy about two young people who fall in love, get married, go on the honeymoon from hell and return, each convinced that the other is the root of all evil in the world. Wonderful movies have been made from far flimsier premises. But most of them featured screenwriters who knew how to build a joke, directors who knew how to pace a sequence, characters who managed to be at least occasionally appealing and actors who could play more than one note.

Bob is cute.Bob is friendly.See Bob run.Very slowly.And that's it in a nutshell for Microsoft's earnest attempt to create a new computing environment for people who don't like computers.Bob isn't a person. He's a program, or actually eight simple but well-integrated programs designed for home computer users, wrapped up in a homey little shell that sits on top of Microsoft Windows.Microsoft chose the name Bob because it sounds friendly (everyone knows a Bob). The design of the package is based on research by two Stanford professors who believe that people enjoy a "social" environment.

Baltimore's mayor, it turns out, has a soft spot for big fuzzy dogs and the two-time winner of the sexiest man alive title. Stephanie Rawlings-Blake, speaking Friday on Mix 106.5's Jojo and Reagan show, had a bit more fun than she usually seems to. She gabbed about trying to snap a picture of Bo Obama on a trip to the White House and about her brush last year with the "really cute" (as she put it) George Clooney. The two met last November while Clooney was in Baltimore to take in the Ravens/Bengals game.

The Ravens' playoff win against the Houston Texans was ugly, and things aren't going to get any prettier. At this point of the season, though, who cares? The Ravens are who they are, a well-balanced team with few weaknesses and superstars, and enough overall talent to win most games. Do the Ravens have enough to beat the New England Patriots in the AFC championship game Sunday? Of course, but it can't be a pretty game, either. It has to be another ugly masterpiece. "You win the game no matter what," Ravens head coach John Harbaugh said.

The Corner Bistro & Wine Bar is the kind of restaurant you want to tell everyone you know about — not because you want them to experience how great it is for themselves, but because you selfishly want the business to stay open so you can go back again and again. It's that good. Open three months, the Corner Bistro is the brainchild of brothers Derrick and Wesley Vaughan. Derrick worked in the private sector while Wesley served as a chef in some of Baltimore's finer steakhouses.

No matter what your feels are about religion, it's hard not to be charmed by a blessing of the animals. This one happened this week at the the Cathedral of the Incarnation, part of the Episcopal Diocese of Maryland. Watch for little Butterscotch. I love him. (He was a good boy! He didn't bite the bishop!)

The recent birth of two dolphins at the National Aquarium is certainly an event to be celebrated ("Baby dolphins mean quiet time at National Aquarium," June 2). I hope that this event also prompts reflection upon our society's practice of caging sea mammals. Dolphins are highly intelligent creatures. In the wild, they swim between 40 and 100 miles per day, foraging for food and engaging in social behavior with their pods. In captivity, however, these magnificent creatures are limited to swimming in circles in tanks filled with chemicals.

What advice would you give your 8-year-old self? Me, I'd tell him to convince mom and dad to buy a ton of that newfangled IBM stock. But such practical matters are far from the minds of the creators of "Disney's The Kid," which offers us Bruce Willis as a self-absorbed Los Angeles image consultant in serious need of getting in touch with his inner child. So guess who shows up on his couch one day? "The Kid" is a pleasantly lightweight confection that stumbles only when director Jon Turteltaub allows a few too many heartstrings to be pulled, or when the filmmakers get too caught up in their own inventiveness.

Dames at Sea is a frothy little spoof of 1930s Ruby Keeler-Dick Powell movie musicals. But froth can be deceptively difficult to stage. The least bit of strain or over-exertion can deflate it, which is what happens in director Charlie Smith's production at Theatre on the Hill. The corn is too self-conscious (when a sailor gets his foot stuck in a bucket, we see him jam it in deliberately, instead of inadvertently) and the slapstick is too forced (an actor playing a character with a stubbed toe milks his limp mercilessly)

Visually sleek and modern, Pure Wine Cafe looks as if it belongs on Charles Street in Mount Vernon, serving young and trendy Baltimoreans, instead of being nestled along Main Street in Ellicott City. This local hot spot, which serves upscale Mediterranean dishes, draws a nice mixture of clientele, from aging former hippies to well-dressed professionals, all enjoying Pure Wine's oenological offerings. Space is at a premium. While patrons at the bar sit comfortably, dining in the middle area can be challenging because the high-top tables measure about the size of a large dinner plate.
