The snow is melting in the woods of North Carolina, and the kudzu is greening up. This ravenous, pea-like vine was introduced to prevent soil erosion and now it is devouring the South, which goes to show you that some solutions are worse than the problem. Likewise, the judge in Yolo County, Calif., near Sacramento, who sentenced a man to seven years in prison for stealing a $3.99 bag of shredded cheese. Under California's unique three-strikes sentencing scheme, additional crimes become felonies even if they are minor misdemeanors.

Art Alexakis, frontman of the hard-driving, alternative band Everclear, is a rock star who helps load kids on to the bus for his daughter's kindergarten field trip.He's also a rock star who's not afraid to reveal his sensitive side, especially when it comes to Bruce Springsteen's "Thunder Road.""I get chills every time I hear that song," he says from his home in Portland, Ore. "I know it's not very punk rock to say that."And the refreshing dichotomies that define Alexakis and Everclear don't stop there.

Janet JacksonThe Velvet Rope (Virgin 44762)In club culture, the velvet rope is the line that marks off the private spaces in which the famous can be themselves without worrying about what the public thinks. So when Janet Jackson invites her audience behind "The Velvet Rope," what she's really offering is a chance to see her as she really is. What she reveals may be more than some fans want to know -- as a sexual adventurer, Jackson examines everything from bondage to bisexuality -- but she's not trying to be shocking or sensational.

Maryland senators voted Wednesday to outlaw sales of the clear, potent booze that's been a staple at college parties. The move comes after a push from Maryland university presidents who say grain-alcohol, which is 95 percent pure, contributes to a dangerous culture of binge drinking. The 190-proof liquor is sold under several brands and sometimes is marketed as "moonshine," but is often known by the most popular brand name, Everclear.  "This is a small step we can do to improve to safety," said Sen. Richard Madaleno of Montgomery County, a Democrat who sponsored the bill at the request of college presidents.

Everclear Songs from an American Movie, Vol. One: Learning How to Smile (Capitol 7243 4 97061) Autobiography can be treacherous turf for rock and roll. It's reasonable enough to use the personal to illustrate the universal, as songwriters from John Lennon to Alanis Morissette have shown. Delve too deeply into private problems, however, and that "Song of Myself" runs the risk of being incomprehensible to anyone but the singer and his (or her) shrink. Given the length and ambition of its title, it's reasonable to worry that Everclear's "Songs from an American Movie, Vol. One: Learning How to Smile" will fall into the latter category.
