SOLOMONS -- When racing ended yesterday afternoon, this year's Audi-Yachting Race Week at Solomons Island passed the half- way point, and the competition and speculation were heating up. Who would ultimately win the overall Audi Quattro and Yachting Magazine Chelsea Clock performance trophies?Racing on a three-lap, 18-mile, windward-leeward course began in cooperative northwesterly winds of about 15 knots, but as the temperatures rose, the wind dropped and shifted until, by the race's end, it had come clockwise nearly 180 degrees and was virtually gone.

Somewhere, a husband and wife are arguing about money — even on Valentine's Day. And researchers say that if the two were being totally honest, they would say: "It's not you. It's me. " Researchers say that people who don't like the way they handle money tend to marry partners with opposite financial traits. An unhappy tightwad, for example, will choose to walk down the aisle with a spendthrift. But what might seem appealing during courtship can be aggravating in a marriage. "The more different you are, the more you fight.

Enjoying Puccini's "Madame Butterfly" is, like other pleasure that usually transpire at night, something that can make looking in the mirror the next morning difficult.In "Butterfly," Puccini manipulates his audience down the well-trodden paths of sexism, racism and even pornography. He makes listeners feel (while the work is in progress) that their capacity for tears validates their goodness as human beings.This is not to deny that "Madame Butterfly" is a great work. It is only to say that what the Marquis de Sade was to pain and what Hugh Hefner was to the pinup, Puccini -- never more triumphantly than in "Butterfly" -- was to operatic sentimentality.

The arrest of actress Felicia "Snoop" Pearson, along with more than 60 others, on drug distribution charges Thursday surely came as a disappointment to her many fans in Baltimore and around the country. But it could not have been entirely unexpected. Ms. Pearson, a self-admitted former drug dealer and convicted murderer by the time she was 16, reportedly had been trying to turn her life around after her acting talents were discovered a few years ago by the producers of HBO's "The Wire . " And she is, of course, presumed to be innocent until proved otherwise.

HOLLYWOOD -- Remember the controversial finale of "Fatal Attraction," a bloody bathroom scene during which Anne Archer guns down Glenn Close shortly after Michael Douglas dunks her in a bathtub? Some movie fans may recall that another, far less violent ending was first shot by director Adrian Lyne.The original conclusion to the 1987 thriller will be included on a new home-video and laser-disc release of "Fatal Attraction" in March from Paramount Home Video as part of its "Directors' Series."

SOLOMONS -- With Hurricane Bob safely north of the Chesapeake Bay well before the start of racing yesterday, the third annual Audi-Yachting Race Week at Solomons Island was off to a nearly perfect start, with moderate and relatively steady breezes and flat water to assist the fleet of 71 starters around the course.Although heavier air from the passing storm had been expected, winds were 17 to 18 knots out of the northwest at the 10 a.m. start, and dropped off gradually into the 8- to 10-knot range while shifting gradually to the west, persistently favoring the left side of the beats on the flat triangular course.

TV Shark Week: If you're still planning that beach vacation, you may want to avoid Discovery this week. The channel's annual celebration of blood, teeth and more teeth is back for its 22nd year. Look for Marylander Andy Dehart as he hosts several shows, including Shark After Dark. I think it's safe to assume midnight snacks are involved. CONCERT American Idols Live: Idol has always been campy, but last season some of the contestants actually embraced the cheese factor and owned it. So this latest tour should make for a particularly guilty guilty pleasure.

In 2004, the number of fatal drug overdoses in Baltimore dropped to its lowest level in five years. Health Department officials and drug abuse experts credit "Staying Alive," a program that trains mostly addicts to recognize a heroin overdose and to administer Narcan, a medication that helps revive a user who might die. The program deserves support as officials now sensibly want to continue and expand it. Since April 2004, more than 800 people have been...

Stop where you are. Turn away from it. Do NOT go into the light! Too late. Oh, the humanity! No, it's not the war of the worlds, and no, the Orioles aren't back in first place. You know what we are talking about: dead ladybugs on St. Paul Street. Yes, dead ladybugs. Polka-dotted Volkswagen bodies, lifeless; ladybug wings, splayed in a death visage. Good luck gone bad. They did not turn away from the light. They went darkly into the ultraviolet light on the mean street of St. Paul. At The Standard at 501 St. Paul St., custodians sweep the dead ladybugs off the 20 glass-covered lights embedded in the sidewalk surrounding the apartment building.

"PUT DOWN that knife," I screamed. The object of my fearful demand was not a violent assailant or a miscreant bent on armed robbery. It was my 4-year-old who had climbed on a step-stool to reach the kitchen counter, and had grabbed a carving knife of ample size and menacing keen.Deeply shaken, she dropped the knife and began to cry. Luckily, my ill-considered shout (instead of prompt but calm intervention) did not frighten the child into cutting herself. Nor did her normal curiosity result in harm.

Back when the first instinct was to look toward heaven whenever things went awry on Earth, disasters elicited widely varying responses.Take the earthquake that caught the city of Lisbon in church on All Saints' Day 1755 killing 15,000 and fatally injuring as many in six terrible minutes. In Boston, John Wesley preached a sermon that identified sin as the cause, the quake as a seismic sign of God's wrath. Many agreed with Alexander Pope: Whatever is, is right.But the anti-religious reaction was just as fierce.

It's summertime at the movies, and Hollywood has spared no expense in dreaming up ways to usher characters into The Great Beyond.Already you've seen death by lava and death by dinosaur. Coming soon to your neighborhood theater is death by cruise ship, death by ocean liner, death by airplane, death by aliens, death by insect, death by icicle and death by kiss. Naturally, there also will be a full slate of the more ho-hum leave-takings by gunfire, bomb and knife blade.It may be September before anyone on the big screen dies from natural causes.
