On Nov. 8, 1887, John Henry "Doc" Holliday, the tubercular dentist who became one of the most feared and notorious killers on the Western frontier, awoke from his sleep and asked for a glass of whiskey.It was said that Holliday, who was always "one cough away from the cemetery," had gone to Glenwood Springs, Colo., from either Denver or Leadville, where city directories showed he lived the final two years of his life, to seek treatment for his tuberculosis.There he hoped that the inhalation of the resort's "Sulphur vapors" might affect a cure for the respiratory illness that had plagued him for most of his life.

When it comes to college football bowls, the Military Bowl in Annapolis may not seem like the most exciting of opportunities for Maryland, with the game a short bus ride away. Not to mention that the Dec. 27 date means the Terps will spend Christmas away from their families as they prepare to play Marshall. But these concerns prove to be advantages for both the program and the players, Terps coach Randy Edsall said at a news conference at Navy-Marine Corps Memorial Stadium on Thursday afternoon.

Not one but two more special sessions of the Maryland General Assembly? And all because the state House and Senate wasted the regular session on trivial matters and expressions of ego. Neither the so-called governor nor his two minions in the legislature should draw a salary for the dog and pony show they exhibited this year. Maybe that would help defray the costs of this double-dipping. Even Doc Holliday said that his hypocrisy only went so far. F. Cordell, Lutherville

With his handlebar mustache and high-Victorian wardrobe, Kurt Russell looks amazingly like the authentic Wyatt Earp, the architect of the gunfight at O.K. Corral in Tombstone, Ariz., in 1881. But that's where the authenticity in "Tombstone" stops -- ,, at the facial hair and mourning-coat level.A generally bad but quite entertaining revisionist romp through the saloons and brothels of the town too tough to die, "Tombstone" has great fun mixing styles, facts, wisecracks and archetypes in new and generally unrecognizeable ways.

Panned by critics and ignored by the public, the movie ''Wyatt Earp'' quickly vanished into oblivion this past summer. Americans seemed to prefer the ''feel good'' movie of the summer -- ''Forrest Gump'' -- to the biography of the legendary frontier lawman. But there is much the 3 1/2 - hour Lawrence Kasdan epic tells us about the crime and violence that plagues Americans today.Director Kasdan depicts the young Wyatt Earp as a peaceful soul adverse to violence. He vomits when he sees two men gun each other down in the street.

As the poet and critic Fred M. Flintstone has so movingly written in his seminal essay, "Observations on Certain Themes of Anarchism in Mass Culture" (Partisan Review, June, 1992, pp. 567-789), "Yabba-dabba-doo."That is to say: It's summer! Lighten up! Have some fun! The movies ahead are big, stupid, violent, loud, possibly two or three of them funny, and one or two of them actually good. Here's a preview of what's headed this way, following on the release of "Beverly Hills Cop III" and "The Flintstones" earlier this week.

To lovers of Wild West folklore, he's Wyatt Earp - lawman, saloonkeeper, gambler, quick-triggered centerpiece of the legendary gunfight at the OK Corral. To Charles Earp Jr. of Catonsville and Pamela Earp Young of Ellicott City, he's cousin Wyatt. That the man who almost single-handedly defines the Wild West would have a couple of relatives in Maryland - and that those relatives would meet by coincidence - is perhaps not as far afield as it might seem. As it turns out, the Earp clan got its start in the United States when Thomas Earp Jr. of Ireland came to the Baltimore area in the 17th century as an indentured servant.
