Danielle Steel and Scott Turow are all wet. So are more than a thousand books by other novelists after a fire sprinkler malfunctioned in the Towson library yesterday minutes before the library opened, drenching the fiction shelves. "It just went off, a huge rush of water," said librarian Joe Thompson, who was standing near the fiction section putting books onto shelves when the sprinkler erupted. "I just stared for the first couple seconds." Thompson and other workers sprang into action, ripping books from the shelves and grabbing wastebaskets to bail the mounting pools of water.

The title of our film tonight is "Leo Tolstoy's Anna Karenina." If you're waiting for "Danielle Steel's Anna Karenina" or "Stephen King's Anna Karenina," please return to the lobby.Happily, "Leo Tolstoy's Anna Karenina" actually does hew closely, even reverently, to Leo Tolstoy's "Anna Karenina," arguably literature's greatest piece of romance writing. Perhaps, though, the film could have benefited from a little more Danielle Steel. Or at least a little more sex.Is that a sacrilege? Yes, but at the core of Tolstoy's 19th-century novel is a passion so surpassing, so searing, its consequences sunder lives every which way. Screenwriter and director Bernard Rose ("Immortal Beloved")

Dear Tom Perkins: I'm writing to apologize. I do this on behalf of the 99 percent of us who are not multimillionaires. You, of course, are, having made a pile as a venture capitalist and co-founder of the firm Kleiner Perkins Caufield & Byers. I admit, I'd have thought a guy like you had little to complain about. But that was before you wrote that tear-jerking Jan. 24 letter to The Wall Street Journal revealing the pain, the oppression, the abject sense of vulnerability and fear that go with having a net worth equal to the GNP of some developing nations.

Since cruise ships don't have the equivalent of an in-flight magazine, here's a suggestion for forward-thinking captains: Put copy of Bim in every cabin.It makes perfect sense. Most ships visit the Caribbean, and Bim is the literary journal of the Caribbean. It provides infinitely more stimulating reading than Danielle Steel. And this year it is celebrating its golden anniversary.Barely. The journal that began in Barbados in 1942 is hurting financially and today often opens with an apology for the time that has elapsed between issues.

Yes, Milton Berle died March 27. But yesterday marked the passing of the real Mr. Television, Robert Urich, at age 55, after a years-long battle with synovial cell sarcoma, a rare cancer that attacks the body's joints. He was not around at the dawn of the medium, or even during a golden age. But Urich starred in the most television series of any actor, from Soap to Love Boat: The Next Wave. If every movie star has a television counterpart, then Urich was the Gene Hackman of the small screen.

It's the last night for "the Night Thing": "The Arsenio Hall Show" closes shop, with enough momentum and special guests to make it one of the evening's two highlights. The other: an "Edith Ann" cartoon on ABC.* "Edith Ann: Homeless Go Home." (8:30-9 p.m., WJZ, Channel 13) -- Jane Wagner, Lily Tomlin's writer and creative partner, has taken one of Tomlin's broadest characters from Rowan & Martin's Laugh-In and fleshed her out beautifully, in animated form. Tomlin's muddy Edith Ann voice is as telling as ever, and the jokes and story lines in "Homeless Go Home" are as wry and clever as the title itself.

For many Americans -- as well as in the preponderance of media -- the Persian Gulf war is understood in stark terms: Bad guy Saddam Hussein invaded the little country of Kuwait, the United Nations coalition drew a line in the sand, gave the new Hitler an ultimatum and finally went in and forced him out.OK, so why is there still savage fighting in Iraq? We hear about at least four factions -- Kurds, Shiites, Palestinians and Saddam's Revolutionary Guard. What's the difference between them?
