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.

WASHINGTON -- Defying the most serious veto threat since George W. Bush became president, the Senate passed an emergency spending bill yesterday that includes $14 billion more than the White House wanted. Much of the $109 billion total is designated for military operations in Iraq and hurricane relief on the Gulf Coast - $66 billion for the war and $29 billion for post-Katrina aid and repairs. The rest of the money, added incrementally as the Senate debated the bill over the past two weeks, is for programs that supporters say are crucial and critics deride as "pork."

HOWARD COUNTY engineers are to be commended for their thrift and imagination in seeking alternatives to an expensive cloverleaf interchange on Route 175 at Snowden River Parkway and Dobbin Road. But their proposal to build an innovative "dispersed movement" intersection was ultimately deemed too risky by the State Highway Administration -- and rightly so.Dispersed movement systems use a series of timed traffic signals to route left-turning cars across oncoming lanes and onto new access roads.

One of the nation's leading advocates for year-round schools says he envisions a time in the 21st century in which school children learn at their home computer pods year-round and only attend school a couple of days a week for "acculturation purposes." Whether that Orwellian vision comes true, we can't foretell, but it's a good bet it will be the far distant future, if ever, before Maryland adopts broad year-round schooling.Former Gov. William Donald Schaefer liked the idea, mostly as a way to use schools throughout the year to hold down capital costs.
