Finally, all our questions will be answered: What will Desiree do now that Brooks, the man she loves, dumped her? Will Brooks come back and beg for forgiveness? Does Drew come out of the closet? Will Chris ever stop writing cheesy poems? After all the crying and sniveling last week after Brooks departure, I hope that Drew and Chris are ready to be consolation prizes because Des made it very clear that without Brooks, her journey to find love is over. Des' story continues with her standing on a balcony reminiscing about her journey and still crying about Brooks leaving.

I WAS TALKING to my pal Jake the other day. Jake cleans swimming pools for a living and supports the arts. He frequents art houses with names like "Girls Girls Girls" and "Continuous Nude Dancing."Jake and I visited one such establishment where, in the grand tradition of investigative journalism, I probed his feelings on First Amendment rights and public morality."Jake, do you agree with the Supreme Court's recent ruling upholding a state's right to enforce local standards of morality vis a vis public exhibitionism?"

Holla at 'cha Brother Nate It's Week 8 of "The Bachelorette" which means time for the hometown dates! I'm not sure how they are going to top last week's “picnic on a go-kart track” date, but hopefully Des' potential future ex-fiance's family has something exciting in store for her.  The remaining four guys: Chris (I will write another poem for you my dear, I hope the viewers don't shove a pen in their ear), Brooks (I don't know the difference between an adjective and a verb)

I HAVE WRITTEN a blockbuster novel. My inspiration was The DaVinci Code by Dan Brown, which has sold 253 trillion copies in hardcover because it's such a compelling page-turner. Nobody can put this book down: Mother On Beach: Help! My child is being attacked by a shark! Lifeguard (looking up from The DaVinci Code): Not now! I just got to page 243, where it turns out that one of the men depicted in "The Last Supper" is actually a woman! Mother: I know! Isn't that incredible? And it turns out that she's ... Shark (spitting out the child)

Conner's family and friends will remember his short life and his bright smile today at a Mass at St. Augustine Roman Catholic Church in Elkridge, followed by a gathering at the family's Ellicott City home. Then his parents, Desiree and Carl Hopf, say they will continue the public education efforts that their little boy inspired.

Wristcutters: A Love Story is a lousy title for a lovely-loony picture about an afterlife for suicides. It's an off-road "road movie" about people who off themselves. Patrick Fugit, still almost famous from Almost Famous (2000), plays Zia, who kills himself because he's heartbroken over Desiree (Leslie Bibb), the woman he thinks is his true love. In the odd little corner of the afterlife reserved for suicides in this movie - the seedier parts of Los Angeles and off-highway roads in the Southern California desert - Zia befriends a Russian rocker named Eugene (Shea Whigham)

The summer night smiles three times - once at the young, once at the fools and once at the old, the character of Madame Armfeldt tells her granddaughter in the musical A Little Night Music. There are many charms in this revival of Stephen Sondheim and Hugh Wheeler's 1973 musical at the Kennedy Center in Washington - high among them a radiant performance by Blair Brown. But the evening's smiles aren't equally bright in this latest Sondheim Celebration production. The musical - based on Ingmar Bergman's 1955 movie, Smiles of a Summer Night - is as close to a theatrical confection as anything in the Sondheim canon.

In a year when the Oscar nominations have recognized more foreign artists in more categories than ever before, it's fitting that the Charles has put together a three-month retrospective of the work of Ingmar Bergman, the Swedish filmmaker who in the '50s made subtitles sexy. Pedro Almodovar is a contemporary master of tragicomedy, and he's in fine form in Volver. But not even Almodovar has achieved the lasting perfection of Bergman's melancholy erotic comedy Smiles of a Summer Night. Guillermo del Toro's Pan's Labyrinth deftly blends pagan and Christian mythology with the nightmare of mid-20th-century politics.

April Witch, by Majgull Axelsson. Villard. 408 pages. $24.95. Most of us cannot name a single cultural product of Sweden other than sauna and massage, small meatballs and Ingmar Bergman. So it is a labor of love to cause to be translated a contemporary Swedish novel, a "monster best seller" there but unquestionably something of an oddity here, lacking the warm lure of the more fashionable exotic. And once having thought of Bergman, one might find it difficult to forget him, as there is nothing light or banal about April Witch, Majgull Axelsson's second prize-winning novel.

Hello rose lovers and welcome to Season 9 of The Bachelorette!  It's been a long 77 days for us 'Bachelor' fans, but I am back and ready to bring you the play-by-play as we follow Desiree on her second chance at love, which is sure to be filled with testosterone-fueled drama! The “journey for love” starts as Des drives up in a dingy Honda Accord and gazes at her new Malibu beach pad.  Chris Harrison greets her at the Malibu beach house door and takes her for a tour of her new digs.  As they walk from room to room, we are reminded of Des' humiliation as she begged Sean not to let her go last season.

Could "The Bachelorette" go for a Bawlamer boy? Could be... When the ABC show has its season premiere Monday, May 27, one of the contenders for the hand of bachelorette Desiree Hartsock will be introduced as Brian, a 29-year-old financial adviser from Baltimore. Brian is, in fact, Brian Jarosinski, a financial services representative for Gateway Capital Financial, an office of MetLife (although the website misspells Brian's name as "Jaronsinski," it's him). According to his bio on ABC.com, Jarosinski was born in Olney; is 6'-2", wears size 13 shoes and has no tattoos; lists his three favorite movies as "The Rock," "'The Notebook" and "The Count of Monte Cristo"; and professes to be "very neat.

In the inaugural event of Live Arts Maryland, the Annapolis Chorale and its sister group, the Annapolis Chamber Orchestra, presented a musical treat. The performances last Friday and Saturday of A Little Night Music featured 15 actor-singers and an orchestra delivering a fabled and sophisticated score complete with flowing waltzes. Conductor J. Ernest Green delivered music with the skill and sensitivity it deserves. The exciting performances rivaled shows seen on Broadway. Based on Ingmar Bergman's film classic Smiles of a Summer Night, the 1973 musical proved to be Stephen Sondheim's greatest success at the time, running for 600 Broadway performances and winning six Tony awards.

Pay no attention to the man behind the curtain. He may be afraid, but I'm not.There is a time, dear Desiree, in everyone's life when they should get drunk with a friend and tell all. We're working on that tonight. You see? I told you those weekend people wouldn't be here; they never are, and besides, tonight, this isn't their dock, it's Buddy's Bar and Grill. That's why I'm hanging these chili pepper lights and handing you this bottle of Tres Brujos Tequila, my dear. The bar is officially open.

For months now, Gov. Robert Ehrlich has worn an orange bracelet that reads, "I am able." Good mantra, maybe, for a Republican governor making a re-election bid in an overwhelmingly Democratic state. But the wristband really promotes disabilities awareness. Recently, a light-blue band joined the orange one on the governor's left wrist. It says "Conner's way." The parents of Conner Hopf, Carl and Desiree Hopf of Ellicott City, gave it to the governor in December at a fundraiser for their baby boy, who has rare degenerative disease known as Tay-Sachs.
