I have to tell you right off. I liked the Christmas special better.That episode of "Doug" was about a half-hour long. And a half-hour of "Doug" is about as much "Doug" as anyone, of any age, can reasonably be expected to withstand at a time. The "Doug" universe is too sweet and too light to travel into the big, wide, often indelicate territory of feature films.Pub Date: 3/26/99

Many who witnessed the climactic events in Waco think that all of the Branch Davidians were senseless "religious fanatics."I knew and corresponded with one who has been described as "second or third in command" of the group. His mannerisms were gentle, and he did not have a mean streak in his body. He was reserved, always polite and never prone to violence.Douglas Wayne Martin, the 42-year-old African-American Harvard trained lawyer, who perished on April 19th with three of his six children in the inferno that engulfed his religious group's living quarters ten miles from Waco, Texas, was a respectable and likable man.The last time that we talked, during a phone conversation two years ago, he said that things were going well for him, his wife, Sheila, and their children in that south Texas town.

When Doug Genne started using an Internet service for singles, he didn't expect it to change his life. "I was not looking for my future wife," says Doug, but, that's who he found on www.matchmaker.com. Constance Thomas was hours away from finishing her trial membership in 1999 and ending her visits to the Web site when Doug sent her "an amazing e-mail" using humorous words like "golly" and "gee-willikers." "I just thought it was really cute," says Constance. Doug, who grew up in Plainsboro, N.J., had been living in the Washington area for more than four years and was discouraged by the dating scene.

In our small corner of suburbia, the passing seasons are marked by a produce stand in the rear parking lot of a liquor store. Up on the highway, other, larger vegetable markets come and go, never working their way into the psyche of the locals the way the striped tent at Doug's Produce has over the years.Doug's fruits and vegetables, jams and honeys, cider and Christmas trees are a fragile link to nature we are otherwise too busy to notice as we scurry from place to place. Seasons have almost disappeared from the produce aisles of the supermarket.

.. Doug Duerksen is familiar with the grim task of consoling the families of soldiers killed in war. As an Army chaplain, Duerksen has delivered tragic news to many families - sometimes even about his friends. Now the chaplain and his family are the ones grieving, after the death of their 19-year-old daughter from a noncombat gunshot wound in Baghdad, Iraq, last month. "I'd much rather be the caregiver than the receiver," said the father, who is based at Aberdeen Proving Ground. "It's an unusual role to be in."

Whether he's on the wrestling mat or participating in Howard County's work-study program, Atholton wrestler Doug Ramsey is always on the go. A senior, Ramsey leaves school early three days a week to help build houses in the River Hill area in cooperation with Columbia Builders. Two days a week, he participates in Howard County's Association of Retarded Citizens program, helping people to adjust both vocationally and recreationally. But by 2:45 p.m., Ramsey is in the Atholton practice room, setting a relentless pace against teammate Scott Radik, his workout partner, and driving himself nearly to exhaustion.

"This is crazy!" declared Doug as he turned in a circle to consider his surroundings. "I'm nominating you for an episode of 'Hoarders'!" We were in my walk-in closet, and Doug's facial expression was part amazement, part horror, and part acid indigestion. Usually, I do a closet clean-out by myself. I'd rather chew tinfoil than let somebody into the bottomless pit of wretchedness and despair that is the place where my sweat pants go to die. Unfortunately, I'm not very good at it. No matter how many trips I make to the donation center, somehow I never manage to liberate even two hangers worth of wardrobe space.

Sometime after giving birth to my first child, but before getting the third one out the door for good, something weird happened. I can't pinpoint the exact moment, but I'm guessing it was somewhere between learning to read with Dick and Jane and getting my first pair of parachute pants. I think that's when my memories officially went from "feels like yesterday" to "ancient history. " I've always enjoyed browsing antique shops. I'm intrigued by anything and everything from a bygone era, from butter churns to Edwardian jewelry; from 1930s Coke machines to 1950s barber poles; from old furniture to toys that would be considered, by today's standards, not merely unsafe, but lethal.

" -- Frank Underwood Frank faces questions from Special Prosecutor Heather Dunbar about his link to the campaign contributions, and, more specifically, Feng and Lanagin.

Your recent articles about Attorney General Doug Gansler's alleged missteps reminded me of another high-profile scandal by a public official who now wants to run for Mr. Gansler's job ( "Gansler says he made 'a mistake,'" Oct. 24). That official is state Del. Jon Cardin, who several years ago used the Baltimore City police to stage a mock raid on a boat in the harbor as he proposed to his fiancée onboard. Mr. Cardin admitted he did this by reimbursing the police department $300 for the patrol boat, a helicopter and its manpower.

CHASE -- While Marie and Douglas Wilkinson sipped coffee yesterday in their kitchen, a man punched holes in the walls of their two-bedroom home to install a security system -- the most visible sign that their lives had been changed irrevocably. The Wilkinsons and their 4-year-old son spent the past few days sheltered in their house, like many people, glued to television coverage of the 97-hour siege of Joseph Palczynski. But they were special observers. They, too, had been his captives.
