It's good to be the king.This is the thrust of "The Lion King," the new Disney animated feature film opening today, which wants to be about fathers and sons but can't quite break free of the fact that it's about kings and princes. Although it's state of the art, one might say that in terms of its values, it's the best animated film of the 19th century.Beautifully mounted and dynamically told, it follows Simba, Prince of the Beasts, son of the mighty Mufassa (James Earl Jones), current holder of the kingship.

It's 9 a.m. on a recent Saturday and I am one of 20 day campers sitting around a fire pit in rural central New Jersey. Doused in suntan lotion and bug spray, we are all there for the same reason: to learn survival skills, particularly those meant to fend off cannibalistic corpses. Yes, you read that correctly - cannibalistic corpses, more commonly known as zombies. From TV favorite "The Walking Dead" to last year's blockbuster "World War Z," the flesh-eating foes are everywhere.

Have you forgotten the Flesh Rule? It can happen, especially in a world where there are so many ways to be in contact with geographically distant people, thanks to cell phones, PDAs, e-mail, Facebook and Twitter. The Flesh Rule states that when engaging in any social, business or leisure activity, you should always give the person who is physically present your full attention. In other words, the person in the flesh rules - not the person on your cell phone, your BlackBerry or your iChat.

This week, things pick up shortly after we left off. Jake's done choking Liv, but he isn't done accusing her of treason. Everyone's furious with her for breaking up B613, but as a couple of people pointed out on Twitter, can't they just turn the computers back on? I'm confused. Jake and Fitz are ganging up on Liv about B613. She's shocked, since they both seemed to hate it, at one point. They both seem to be more upset that she's allowed whatever Marie Wallace's clients have planned to unfold six days before the election.

FLESH N' BLOOD" might be set in Baltimore, but if this new NBC comedy makes it, it's because its roots go into fertile soil much farther south of the Mason-Dixon line.Indeed, "Flesh n' Blood," which gets a send-off tonight at 10 o'clock before settling into its 9:30 p.m. Friday time slot tomorrow, could easily be titled "The David Keith Show."That's because as the character of Arlo Weed, Keith picks up every line he is given and takes off with it like a wide receiver on an end-around playing for Keith's beloved University of Tennessee Volunteers football team.

Blood oranges stand out in the citrus crowd. We expect any orange to have a sweet orange taste, but blood oranges have a complex flavor with subtle raspberry and strawberry overtones. Their thin skin varies from orange to blushed with red and peels off easily from the seedless flesh. My supermarket makes a display of several cut blood oranges so shoppers can appreciate their unique color, which can range from deep pink to crimson to dark burgundy. Although Europeans have been enjoying the rosy-colored juice and bright-red flesh of blood oranges for several hundred years, the oranges are a recent addition to our produce bins.

Funnymen who don't know the strength of their humor often prove to be the best. That's the case with comical directors, too, such as Eli Roth, whose unassuming horror movie Cabin Fever wins laughs not only with its overt jokes, but also with its general, warped affability. Roth aims to do nothing more than scare you craftily with this tale of five feckless youths who fall prey to a flesh-eating virus while vacationing in North Carolina woods. Today's audiences have become inured to schlock weighed down with platitudes.

In the race to flash ever more flesh, midriffs have become passe, bare legs a snooze and cleavage a shrug. Celebrities may be showing almost everything they've got, but is anyone still looking? Instead, the new "sexy" this summer is more restrained -- a peek rather than a peep show. Designers have put delicate cutouts, shaped as keyholes, diamonds, hearts and circles, into everything from bikinis and blouses to dresses and yoga wear. They're intended to seduce with just a tantalizing glimpse of the (once again)

"Slammerkin," by Emma Donoghue. Harcourt. 336 pages. $24. She did it for a ribbon. In 1761, Mary Saunders, the teen-aged daughter of a London seamstress, threw away her respectable life to become a whore and for what? A ribbon. Granted, Mary didn't have much: a heap of rags for her bed, a few crusts for her dinner. As for clothes, Mary had only her charity school smock, while the harlots at the Seven Dials wore "yellow like fresh butter, ink black, and the blue of fire." One of them even had a strawberry skirt, "all swollen up as with air; her breasts spilled over the top like milk foaming in a pan. Her piled-high hair was powdered silver, and the red ribbon ran through it like a streak of blood."

Harrison Demchick is by his own account an optimist. He doesn't think that human society or our ruling institutions have become irredeemably corrupt. He didn't make one single preparation for this past Friday, when the Mayan calendar came to an abrupt — and some would say ominous — halt. So the 28-year-old Owings Mills resident is an unlikely candidate to have made his literary debut last week with an apocalyptic horror novel called "The Listeners. " In the book, an unnamed city is being ravaged by an airborne, flesh-eating plague that turns those it infects into walking corpses.

A minor sensation was created last week by the news that a student at Morgan State University has been accused of killing a housemate and consuming his heart and brain. This week, instead of examining a single word, we will look at a single root, -phagous , meaning "eating," "feeding on," "devouring. " It comes from the Greek phagein , "to eat. " It yields the variants -phage and -phagy (nouns) and -phagous (adjective). The word from that root that may be most familiar to you is sarcophagus , a stone coffin.

The story of a 24-year-old Georgia graduate student fighting a flesh-eating disease has prompted a microbiologist with the Veterans Affairs Maryland Health Care System to speak out about the infection. Aimee Copeland lost most of her left leg after the flesh-eating bacteria necrotizing faciitis is believed to have entered a cut on her leg, according to the Associated Press, which reports she may also have to have her fingers amputated. The waterborne bacteria Aeromonas hydrophila is believed to have caused the infection.

Our current preoccupation with naked congressmen has given new meaning to the phrase "body politic," and I am not sure if we have learned anything about how to handle this subject since President John F. Kennedy was photographed jogging out of the sea in bathing trunks about 50 years ago. Granted, New York Congressman Anthony Weiner sending naked pictures of himself to women he has never met is a far cry from the sneaked photos of a shirtless Barack...

White-collar scandals come so quickly these days that if you don't work on Wall Street or inside the Beltway, it's difficult to distinguish between scoundrels. When you first hear the name " Jack Abramoff," you might think that he was the one who ripped off everyone from Elie Wiesel to Steven Spielberg. No, that was Bernie Madoff, the New York financier who amassed a fortune with a Ponzi scheme.. Abramoff is the Washington lobbyist who became notorious for ruthlessly overcharging American Indian tribes by scores of millions of dollars while currying support for their casinos.

You can take your name off the reservations list and walk away from a restaurant when you are really hungry and the line is greater than your patience. People do it all the time. But today's question is: Is it wise to take the same tack when visiting a hospital emergency room? I think not. There are just some things you should not approach with a DIY mentality, and I'm confident that urgent medical care is among them. But this is the problem with adults; they are not children. Therefore, you cannot tell them what to do and insist they do it for their own good.

They are not so much alive as undead. Open for business, but only to take rather than give. Lumbering, blank-eyed and soulless, they only want more and more of our flesh - or at least the federal government's bailout money. Zombie banks - when there is no more room in hell, they walk on Wall Street! When did George Romero get hold of our economy? The man behind all those zombie movies, from Night of the Living Dead to the multiple Dawn of ... and Day of ... follow-ups, seems to have scripted the current meltdown, what with entire industries lurching about on their last legs.
