Michael Kahn is a director who knows how to wield a knife.He began this season at Washington's Shakespeare Theatre by condensing all three parts of Shakespeare's "Henry VI" into a single, four-hour evening. Two seasons earlier he abridged the two parts of "Henry IV" into a similarly compact production.Now he's applied his knife to Eugene O'Neill's five-and-a-half-hour trilogy, "Mourning Becomes Electra," lopping off about 110 minutes. Not only can you barely see his incisions, but, as was the case with "Henry VI," the result gives audiences a chance to see a work that is rarely performed because of its length.

Robert Blake hasn't worked in film since 1997, but as of last week, fans and curiosity seekers can see the veteran actor - recently acquitted of murdering his wife - in the DVD release of Electra Glide in Blue. In the offbeat 1973 MGM thriller, generally considered one of Blake's best films, he plays a good-natured ex-Marine turned Arizona motorcycle cop who dreams of becoming a homicide detective. Blake, who received a Golden Globe nomination for his performance, did not participate in any of the DVD's extras, for obvious reasons.

BOBBY LUONGO of Annapolis remembers the date precisely: Nov. 15, 1942. He was 17 years old, a seaman second class. He was at his battle station, a 20 mm gun on the starboard side of the USS Electra, an auxiliary cargo attack ship. It was dawn on the Atlantic Ocean, off the coast of French Morocco, just days after the Allied invasion of North Africa. "A torpedo was sighted from the flying bridge, but it was too late," Luongo said. "It hit on the starboard side. I remember it was very loud, a flash of light, and then it was over as quickly as it started.

Steve Bickell was a sailing "rock star," his friends say.The 47-year-old Annapolis businessman loved to race sailboats, and he was good at it. He had a shelf full of trophies in his home to show for it.That's what makes it all the more tragic -- and perhaps fitting, his friends add -- that he was killed Friday evening in a freak accident while competing in the Governor's Cup yacht race on Chesapeake Bay."If somebody said, 'Steve, your time's up, here's a list of ways to go,' he'd have picked this one," said Dan Breen, a longtime friend, business partner and former sailing partner.

More than half a century after she vanished during the last leg of an attempted around-the-world flight, Amelia Earhart is back in the news. At a press conference in Washington this week, a Delaware-based aviation group unveiled tantalizing evidence suggesting Earhart crash-landed on tiny Nikumaroro Island in the Western Pacific, where she and her navigator, Fred Noonan, ultimately perished from exposure and thirst.Richard Gillespie, of the International Group for Historic Aircraft Recovery, said his team turned up a two-foot-long strip from the belly of Earhart's Lockheed Electra during a search of the island last October.

Granted, it never was that great to begin with. But wait until you see tonight what the WB has done to "Hyperion Bay."The drama about a dying seaside town that's both rejuvenated and ripped apart when a computer company arrives is being re-launched under the guidance of Frank South, who most recently served as executive producer for "Melrose Place.""Hyperion" started as a family drama last fall under the care of Joseph Daugherty ("thirtysomething").

But the series never found an audience, and quality is no longer Job One in Hyperion Bay.Carmen Electra, the former "Baywatch" star who married Dennis Rodman, joins the cast in tonight's episode titled "Young and on Fire."
