SO, TELEVISION'S 1990 network premiere season ends not with a bang, but with the whimper of contrivance, a formulaic vehicle that drives down some of the most potholed-filled streets in the medium's aging infrastructure just ahead of the first of the mid-season replacements that begin appearing in a couple of weeks.But give CBS' "Over My Dead Body" some credit. Clearly it cares for the environment, or else how would you explain its penchant for recycling. There are so many retread ideas that you lose count.

Over Her Dead Body is a hopeless pastiche of timeworn plotlines, hackneyed dialogue and stultifying direction; to call it amateurish is a slap in the face to amateurs everywhere. It's certainly a movie that is undeniably dead on arrival. It's not funny, it's put together with all the care and finesse of a ransom note, it features actors who seem embarrassed to be involved with the thing, and it drags for at least 94 of its 95-minute running time. Over Her Dead Body (New Line Cinema) Starring Eva Longoria Parker, Paul Rudd, Lake Bell.

Like a cantankerous parent telling teen-agers they can't have the family car for a road trip, President Bush announced in California recently that the Democrats would reverse his tax cuts of last year "over my dead body." Actually, Bush said "not over my dead body," thereby mangling a familiar idiom, but the crowd's roar of approval indicated that everyone knew what he meant. So did the headline writers, making the president's "my dead body" the first memorable Bushism of 2002, and the first since Sept.

Does America need another TV film about the death of JonBenet Ramsey? No. In fact, America doesn't need another word about it. Two weeks ago, we had the sleazy movie treatment of the 1996 murder of the 6-year-old Boulder, Colo., girl by the Fox network. And, now comes a four-hour CBS miniseries, "Perfect Murder, Perfect Town," starring Marg Helgenberger, Ronnie Cox, Ken Howard, Ann-Margret and Kris Kristofferson. Outside of Helgenberger's performance, there is nothing to recommend this film.

At first, those who mourned Susan Hurley Harrison could not bring themselves to say the word without wincing. They had few illusions -- virtually everyone believed Susan was dead, and was convinced of this fact within days of her disappearance on Aug. 6, 1994. But the word itself was so stark and inanimate, so cold and flat.Body. They were looking for a body.The word was always there, in the back and front of their minds. It was all they thought about -- Susan's siblings, her sons, her first husband.

One of The Sun's readers was very upset about hurting the Inner Harbor's reputation with the recent reporting of a dead body found floating there, the ninth in recent months ( "Sun gives the Inner Harbor a bad name ," March 6). Aren't newspapers supposed to print the facts? Should the article have tried to whitewash or soft pedal this shameful situation? Our "crown jewel" does not always gleam the way you would like it to no matter how much you try to polish it. Gertrude Stein said it best, "A rose is a rose is a rose.

The argument could be heard first, neighbors said. Then the police lights began flashing through their windows. Residents in Baltimore's Upton neighborhood, not unfamiliar with police activity, said they peered outside. A man they recognized as a neighbor lay on the concrete in just his boxer shorts, not moving much and apparently wounded, they said. "I heard the argument, and I came down to the first floor to look and saw all the police and the man laying on the ground. I thought it was a dead body," said Sanyika Fitzpatrick, a 15-year resident of Walton Court, a residential box of homes northwest of downtown and across Martin Luther King Jr. Boulevard from Maryland General Hospital.

Where are the photos of Osama bin Laden's dead body? The U.S. Navy buried it at sea. How convenient! I'm amazed that the national media is buying this. This is nothing more than the first major step in the president's 2012 reelection drive, and they all know it. Also, this is going to be used to justify all the billions that have been spent on all our wars since 9/11 and to promote more such: count on it. Unless and until some undeniable, positive, medical-scientific proof emerges, I will continue to be skeptical.
