Although famously booed, hissed and cat-called at its premiere in February 1904, Puccini's Madama Butterfly took wing by May - after the composer made some revisions - and has flown unimpeded ever since, unaffected by changing times or attitudes. The ardent Italian lyricism of the score, inflected with touches of Japanese melody, continues to grip the ear and the heart. The cultural collision that starts the plot on its course still resonates in many ways (strange how such issues as Ugly Americanism and racial stereotyping never seem to go away)

Welcome to "Bats," in which a plague of really brainy winged mammals tries to outsmart some exceptionally moronic humans.Guess who wins?Ah, well, what the hey? We're not talking Oscar material, but in its own B-film, let's-make-them-jump-out-of-their-seats way, "Bats" is quite the hoot. Especially when director Louis Morneau remembers to skip the close-ups (which make it clear we're looking at puppets here) and concentrate on shots of thousands of fluttering critters blotting out the moon, racing through an underground tunnel or descending on some hapless humans destined to become bat chow.

I AM PLURAL. My husband and I are expecting a baby boy in mid-June, but because it took us so long to get to this point, for a while it didn't seem real. Several bloggers I read frequently have noted that when you get pregnant after a struggle with infertility, at first it can feel like you're just playing the role of a mother-to-be. It was like that for me, after two years of trying. Eight home pregnancy tests, properly doubling beta blood-test results and two early ultrasounds be damned: For weeks, I felt like I was starring in some elaborate masquerade.

It's time to do some hard thinking about the softer direction of fashion.Just when working women have finally put together a very workable wardrobe full of strong-shouldered power suits with the requisite short, straight skirts, the fashion world has changed the rules.Soft is in, gentle is in. Jackets must flutter and drape. The inverted pyramid is dead. Shoulder pads have disappeared.For several seasons now there have been signals that a softer direction lay ahead, but this is the first season when virtually every designer has taken that route, from the Karl Lagerfelds of Paris to the Liz Claibornes of Seventh Avenue.

Butterflies aren't all that finicky about the flowers they visit, but their larvae are picky eaters. To have a great butterfly garden, it is important to provide lunch for the caterpillar. From egg to adult, butterflies need the same things humans do: food, water, shelter and sunshine. You can encourage them to come to your garden by growing colorful flowers for the adults and a few plants that caterpillars are welcome to nibble on. Pam Thomas, horticulturist at Garden in the Woods in Framingham, Mass.

Summer begins with the appearance of the butterflies. The weather warms, and suddenly there they are, swirling past, on their way to court, mate and frolic. For the most enraptured gardeners, the spectacle is so thrilling that they've ripped out plants that they like and re-landscaped with plants that butterflies need. Where once gardeners fought caterpillars with insecticides and thistles with weed killers, now they coddle worms and pamper weeds in an effort to nurture the splendid winged adults.

With security at the March 23 Academy Awards guaranteed to be tighter than Salma Hayek's dress, anti-war protests won't get any closer to the Kodak Theatre in Hollywood than the parking lot of the In-n-Out Burger on Sunset Boulevard. So peace activists have decided to aim at Oscar night's Achilles' heel: fashion. An 18-karat gold Peace Pin -- inspired by Pablo Picasso's "Dove of Peace" and designed by jeweler Henry Dunay (in white or yellow gold, your choice) -- has been commissioned by the umbrella activist organization Global Vision for Peace, to be worn on Oscar night by presenters and recipients.

"Atrial fibrillation" is the technical medical term. Laymen know it as a rapid heartbeat. President Bush experienced the sensation Saturday afternoon at Camp David in Maryland's Catoctin Mountains after jogging for 35 minutes. Shortness of breath. Fatigue. It was diagnosed as a fluttering heartbeat, a missed step in the rhythm of the upper heart chambers that sent the president to Bethesda Naval Hospital and the nation into a period of worried anticipation.Two million Americans experience that same sensation every year.

KABUL, Afghanistan - At the raucous Sharzoda Currency Exchange, the value of the country's skittish currency is determined these days by one man: the former king, 87-year-old Mohammad Zahir Shah, living in exile near Rome. When the former king said months ago that he planned to return, the afghani, as the currency is known, rose against the dollar. It rose higher when a date for his return was set: Nowruz, the Persian New Year, on March 22. When that deadline came and went, the currency fell.
