Sitting is way overrated, according to Felicity Merriman. The 9-year-old would much rather run around her hometown of Williamsburg, getting dirty and saving animals, than practice the sitting-down things her mother wants her to learn - like needlework. The Westminster Branch Library honors the spunky, fictional mischief-maker with a party Wednesday. Featured will be crafts, music, snacks and even a dance lesson based on the experiences of Felicity and her family, who live during the pre-Revolutionary time of 1774 and are the stars of six novels in the American Girls collection.

HOLLYWOOD -- Keri Russell knows from typecasting. She's played a pregnant character in her last four films, including the romantic comedy Waitress, which opens this month. "I don't know what about me screams young pregnant mother," said Russell, 31, with amusement. Whatever it is, life has followed suit. The actress -- almost as famous for cutting her hair as for winning a Golden Globe for her breakthrough role on TV's Felicity -- is about to have her first child with husband Shane Deary, a carpenter she married three months ago. "I always knew I would have kids," said Russell from her apartment in New York.

LOS ANGELES -- Actress Keri Russell says it was a "brave and liberating thing to do." Her boss, Susanne Daniels, the head of programming at the WB, thinks it was a knucklehead thing to do and says she doesn't want to see it happen ever again. We're talking about about Felicity's hair. With hundreds of channels and millions of possible shows to write about, the key to covering television is to know what matters. Felicity's hair matters. Over the summer, Russell, star of the WB's "Felicity," cut her long, curly hair, and six months later it is still one of the hottest topics of discussion on the Winter Press Tour.

I have now seen the pilot for "Felicity" four times. The first two times were just for enjoyment. The last two were reality checks to see if it is really as good as it seemed during the first two viewings.It is."Felicity" is the story of Felicity Elizabeth Porter, 17-year-old freshman at the University of New York. The story opens in her dorm room. She's alone and talking into a recorder, taping a letter for her friend and former French tutor, Sally, who now lives in New Mexico.In voiceover and flashback, we hear the story of a boy who wrote something in Felicity's high school yearbook a few months ago on graduation day and how she bolted from the pre-med path at Stanford that her parents had made it oh-so-easy to follow and instead came 3,000 miles to be at the same school as that boy."

Felicity Ross has the seventh-graders in her second-period class talking about relationships, but not the kind you might think. She has just asked them to draw two triangles, and they're trying to figure out how the angles and sides are related. No one can figure it out at first, but Ross keeps prodding them until one boy catches on. "The smallest angle is opposite the smallest side!" says Leonardo Apolonio, 12. This is a typical morning in Ross' classroom at Hampden's Robert Poole Middle School, but Ross is not typical.

It's a slap-happy road movie about Stanley "Bree" Osbourne (Felicity Huffman), a soon-to-be transgendered person - a man who's been through everything it takes to become a woman except the final surgery. Shortly before the scheduled operation, Bree learns that as Stanley she had a son named Toby (Kevin Zegers), now a teenager in New York City.

Everyone knows the place to find quality drama on Sunday night is HBO. When The Sopranos ends in two weeks, back comes Six Feet Under, followed by The Wire - and so on. But what about the 60 percent of TV homes that don't subscribe to the costliest of the premium pay cable services? Is there anything for those 95 million viewers? The happy answer, at least for two nights, is yes. Tomorrow night, CBS begins airing a two-part miniseries called Reversible Errors and starring William H. Macy.

As the boys lacrosse coach at Mount Hebron, Jeff Doolan watched former Towson High standout Ben DeFelice play several times in high school. But the DeFelice he remembered was a small, skinny attackman who also took faceoffs for the Generals. That DeFelice bore resemblance to the player he encountered last year on his first day as an assistant coach at Towson University. "We were going full field and [Doolan] asks, `Who is that kid facing off and going down the field?' " recalled Tigers coach Tony Seaman.
