Regarding Jeremy Miller's letter "Disgusted by players - and principal - at Perry Hall" (Nov. 8) about the decision to allow the Perry Hall boys soccer team to continue its season after the "Bernie dance" incident that some parents complained was lewd, here is some advice about good sportsmanship: Your team lost, and you also lost the argument to end the Perry Hall boys soccer season. Let it go. You are now 0-2. It's time to be a good sport, move on and get them next time.

Welcome to our first live show of the season. Cat is shiny in gold. I won't lie -- I look forward to seeing what she's wearing each week.  Since we're only getting one show a week this season, I was worried we wouldn't get the group numbers we used to get on the results show, but this show starts out with one. Yay! It's all 10 couples dancing behind tables in what's supposed to look like an office setting. I only wish my work was (A) this uncluttered and (B) scored so well.  They've kept the introductions intact, with each dancer coming out and doing a move or two while Cat says his/her name.

Dirty Dancing opened in select movie theaters to mark the 20th anniversary of the film starring Patrick Swayze. In your opinion, what made Dirty Dancing a film worth seeing again? WHAT YOU SAY I thought Dirty Dancing was one of the most delightful movies I have ever seen. In fact, I have been able to view many reruns throughout the years. The story line was pure and simple; the cast of dancers was superb, exhibiting the various Latin dances. The late Jerry Orbach was excellent as the ever-doting but overwatchful parent of teenage daughters, and Patrick Swayze and Jennifer Grey outdid themselves in displaying their talents.

Rated PG. Sun score: * Redoing Dirty Dancing with Romola Garai as a bookish American in Havana on the eve of Castro's revolution and Diego Luna as a Cuban busboy who dances is a terrible idea, especially under the title Dirty Dancing: Havana Nights. (Critics will be falling all over themselves to propose follow-ups like Johannesburg Twilight or Haitian Haze.) On the one hand, this movie demeans the plight of the Cuban people. On the other hand, you wish the downfall of Batista would get out of the way of the noble underclass boy releasing the energies of the proper middle-class girl.

Actor Leonardo DiCaprio's declaration "I'm the king of the world!" in Titanic has been voted the cheesiest line in movie history, according to a survey of 2,000 British moviegoers, reports the BBC. Patrick Swayze's line in Dirty Dancing - "Nobody puts Baby in the corner" - came in second. "Is it still raining? I hadn't noticed," uttered by Andie MacDowell at the end of Four Weddings and a Funeral, was third. Fourth place belongs to Demi Moore in Ghost. "I love you," Swayze says, to which Moore replies: "Ditto."

"I could be quite happy screwing up my career," says Patrick Swayze.Possibly, he means it. His last two films have been about as far from the macho action dude of "Roadhouse" and "Point Break" as it was possible to get, and even further from the sensitive romantics he played in "Ghost" and "Dirty Dancing."In "To Wong Fu, Thanks for Everything, Julie Newmar," he spends the whole picture in drag behind a face-full of Carol Channing's makeup, and in the yet more peculiar "Three Wishes," which opened yesterday, he plays a drifting hippie-philosopher stuck in the grimly conformist year of 1955.

Shuxing FanMany would consider the assignment daunting, if not impossible.But to Shuxing Fan, creating a 48-foot cloth model of a wave was no big deal.The scenic artist for Center Stage, after all, is used to working on a grand scale.He kneels on the floor, painting swirls of blue on muslin. "I really love art," Mr. Fan, 35, says softly. "I find myself in art."For the past two weeks, he has "found himself" in a Kabuki wave, a bannerlike display being featured in Wednesday's opening ceremonies of the National Aquarium's Marine Mammal Pavilion.

Emile Ardolino, an Oscar-winning maker of dance documentaries who went on to become a Hollywood director of films including "Dirty Dancing" and "Sister Act," died on Saturday morning at his home in Los Angeles. He was 50.The cause was AIDS, said Cindy Gilmore, a longtime colleague and co-producer at Ardolino Productions.Mr. Ardolino, whose new film of George Balanchine's "Nutcracker" is to be released tomorrow, was considered a dance-film maker of exceptional sensitivity.He had an eye and an imagination that seemed to understand intuitively how to lend the immediacy of film to an art that often requires the distance and framing of a stage.

Chinos are practical and comfortable, but no one has ever made the mistake of calling them sexy. They're too Potsie and not enough Fonzie to be sexy; too cotton, too practical. Express' new take on the chino, the Cetine Chino, aims to be sexy. With its low, low rise, relaxed fit at the hip and thigh and medium-flare leg, the pants look modern and chic, but sexy? Well, maybe in a girl-next-door kind of way. Express' Cetine chino comes in five colors, costs $50 and is available at Express stores in Towson, Annapolis, Columbia and beyond.

ATLANTA -- This is not Tom Wolfe's Atlanta. The author of the Atlanta-based "A Man in Full" has, to our knowledge, never shaken his coat-tail feathers while performing the Atlanta Falcons' "Dirty Bird" dance.This is not Ted Turner's team. For once, Turner's Braves aren't the talk of Peachtree Street/Circle/Road/Way/Avenue. Greg Maddux who? It's the Falcons' "Bomb Squad" all the way, baby. Chop that.This is Dan Reeves' Atlanta. While mending from quadruple-bypass surgery, the former deposed coach of the Denver Broncos performed the Dirty Bird after his underdog Falcons shocked the Minnesota Vikings, 30-27, to win a trip to Super Bowl XXXIII on Sunday in Miami.

There might be no grand conspiracy behind the burnings of black churches -- no small group of angry white men plotting each arson -- but, as I heard an African-American woman say in Baltimore yesterday, "It's a conspiracy of the heart." The Southern arsonists might not know each other, they might live in different states -- they might only be teen-agers copying each other -- but they are united in their racism.The rest of us should unite in outrage.It would be good, for instance, if some of our esteemed Southern politicians rose up and joined the president in deploring the attacks -- instead of criticizing him for playing politics with them.
