The only problem with "Truly, Madly, Deeply," which opens today at the Charles, is that it goes on endlessly, remorselessly, self-indulgently.This is deeply, truly, adverb-madly a shame, because for about an hour, it's quite amusing. It has been called a British "Ghost," since both it and the American film are about a young woman whose dead lover returns to her to complete a special mission. But of course "Truly" is nowhere near as sleek as the Paramount money machine. A cultural anthropologist could earn a Ph.D.

The president of the University of Maryland, Baltimore campus said he is "deeply disturbed" by two crimes reported against members of the campus community Monday night and will hold a public safety town hall next week. The incidents -- a robbery of a nursing student and an attempted robbery of a hospital employee -- have prompted campus police to add additional police and security officers, who will wear reflective vests on foot or on Segways, President Jay A. Perman said in an e-mail to employees and students.

WASHINGTON -- An Army commander apologized and paid compensation yesterday to families of Afghan civilians killed by Marines after a suicide attack in March, marking the first formal acknowledgment by American authorities that the killings were unjustified. Col. John Nicholson, an Army brigade commander in eastern Afghanistan, met yesterday with the families of the 19 Afghans killed and 50 wounded when a Marines Special Operations unit opened fire along a crowded stretch of road near Jalalabad after a suicide car bomber rammed their convoy.

Michael Phelps was arrested early Tuesday in Baltimore, charged for the second time in 10 years with drunken driving. The charge comes five months after the record-setting Olympian's return to competition. Phelps, 29, was stopped for speeding just outside the Fort McHenry Tunnel about 1:40 a.m. Tuesday, Maryland Transportation Authority Police said. He was clocked going 84 mph in a 45-mph zone in his 2014 Land Rover and subsequently failed a standard field sobriety test, police said.

Gen. Peter Pace - the first Marine Corps officer to serve as the chairman of the Joint Chiefs of Staff - is being precipitously let go. In a surprise announcement last week, Defense Secretary Robert M. Gates said that General Pace wouldn't be renominated to a second term. Adm. Michael G. Mullen, chief of naval operations, would take over when the general's term expires Sept. 30. As the highly qualified, deeply respected Pace is being ushered out the door, it is reasonable to wonder why. Is it because he was doing a lousy job?

SAN FRANCISCO - Sen. John F. Kerry accused President Bush yesterday of being the most divisive president in modern American history, and blamed him for fostering a climate that has led to political gamesmanship. In sharply worded remarks, Kerry linked his rival to the actions of the Republican Senate leaders, who he said used procedural maneuvers to prevent him from voting on a veterans' health-care measure Tuesday. "That's the way they play," the presumptive Democratic nominee told more than 2,000 donors at a breakfast fund-raiser here.

THE MILKMAN'S long gone. The corner grocer in the stained apron who "ran a tab" if you were short a few bucks -- he's been replaced by the upscale supermarket. As for the bank teller who always had a sweet for the kids, she still exists, but you're more apt to have a regular relationship with her computer surrogate.Among community institutions, the school principal is one of the few remaining familiar faces. That's especially true in the bedroom communities that have grown like thistle, but also in old-country settings such as Winfield.

LOS ANGELES -- He doesn't sport an earring, didn't tag his daughter with a name like "Juniper" or "Moonunit" and hasn't set foot in a hot tub since being elected president, but Bill Clinton would do all that and more if he thought it would help him connect in California."

President Obama's decision last weekend to launch U.S. surveillance flights over Syria in preparation for possible airstrikes against the Islamist militants who have overrun large swaths of the country since June has brought the U.S. another step closer to direct involvement in the years-long civil war there. But it still hasn't resolved the most vexing question facing U.S. policymakers: How does one reverse the military gains of the radical Islamic State, which is now menacing Iraq as well, without at the same time strengthening Syrian President Bashar Assad's hold on power?

I have recently been made aware of plans for Symphony Woods that deeply disturb me ( "Inner Arbor plans 'wow' Howard Co. design panel," Feb. 27). I remember Symphony Woods as a wooded site that was selected to be Columbia's Town Center Park. In 1965 Jim Rouse and his planners hired my firm to design the Music Pavilion for the Washington National Symphony. The walk through the woods to the pavilion site inspired my design. Now I understand the proposed Inner Arbor plan, which ignores Jim Rouse's original vision, will scatter out-of-scale "attractions" instead of creating a beautiful park around the pavilion.

President Barack Obama's speech to the United Nations General Assembly in New York was flawed, displaying a type of moral equivalency that does not exist for America's enemies. His claim that "The world is more stable than it was five years ago" is demonstrably false. In Iraq, Afghanistan, Syria, Kenya, Congo, to name only a few, there are at least as many conflicts as in 2008 and far more now than when the United Nations was created. According to Themner, Lotta and Peter Wallensteen, in "Armed Conflict, 1946-2011", Journal of Peace Research, there were fewer than 20 armed conflicts in 1946.

How easily things get broken. Not just fragile things, like little glass figurines, but the less tangible things clutched most tightly, cherished most deeply - dreams, passions, ideals. Everyone in the Tennessee Williams classic "The Glass Menagerie," which has been given a subtle and affecting revival to open Everyman Theatre 's season, gets shattered in one way or another before the play ends with the gentle extinguishing of candles. Williams created some of his most enduring and, yes, endearing characters in this semi-autobiographical, self-described "memory play" about a small family caught up in illusions and tensions that don't seem resolvable.

As a Vietnam veteran, I am familiar with automatic assault weapons and the damage they can do ("Fight against gun violence must go on despite setback in the Senate" April 23). These weapons are designed for warfare and police emergencies. I am writing today to express how deeply concerned I am about the recent actions, or should I say inactions, by our legislators. I am not being paid by any political action committee. I have been unable to understand how it is that, according to the latest polls, 83 percent or more of Americans want protective action on gun reform, but our Congress has not shown they agree.

Third of three articles on state ballot issues Dee Powell's belief in the ideal of marriage survived the reality of her divorce, and now she is working to preserve the institution as solely the union of a man and a woman. "Marriage is perfect," Powell says. "People are not. " But for Judy Gaver, what would make marriage perfect is to extend it to gay couples, such as the lesbians whose commitment ceremony she attended this summer. "It was beautiful, with the flowers and the music and the families," Gaver said.

Baltimore elected officials said Friday they were outraged by an inspector general's report that found the Mayor's Office of Information Technology and a former deputy mayor withheld information from and misled city officials about a controversial project to install nearly $675,000 in phone and computer equipment. "I am extremely concerned if it happens to be the case that the administration is engaged in misleading top city officials," said Councilwoman Mary Pat Clarke. "If it proves to be the case, I will say that I am deeply concerned about this approach to government and to life.

Here's an important fact you haven't heard much about in the presidential campaign: The armed forces of the United States are at war in at least four countries, and that number could increase any day. About 87,000 Americans are still fighting in Afghanistan, and some are likely to stay past 2014. We're at war in neighboring Pakistan too, mostly using unmanned drones but with a handful of people on the ground. U.S. drone and special operations forces are also waging attacks in Yemen and Somalia, operations big enough that President Barack Obama felt compelled to acknowledge them publicly last month in a letter to Congress.
