If you haven't given ABC's "Gun" a try, tonight may be the night."Interview With the Vampire" (9 p.m.-11 p.m., WBAL, Channel 11) -- Brad Pitt plays a vampire with a conscience who unburdens himself to a writer played by Christian Slater. Tom Cruise is a vampire without a conscience, and Kirsten Dunst is one of his young victims. It's based on the novel by Anne Rice, who roundly criticized the selection of Cruise to play her beloved Lestat and then later came around (perhaps because his marquee name added millions to the take)

It's the day after Memorial Day, so you'd think the networks would be getting back to business as usual. In one sense, that's true. Except that for a while, business as usual -- when applied to the post-May sweeps period -- means almost no business at all. The one must-see offering tonight is a documentary on the Disney Channel, the latest and best TV special tied to the invasion of Normandy and afterward.* "Break the Silence: Kids Against Child Abuse" (8 p.m.-8:30 p.m., WBAL, Channel 11)

Mr. Dunne promptly got the best table in the house."Hollywood!" he laughed after recounting the story.Hollywood is, in fact, Mr. Dunne's theme in his wickedly funny and sad novel, "Playland," published recently by Random House.

American television is generally awful when it comes to talking about race. Afraid of possibly offending anyone and absolutely terrified of tackling complex subject matter, most networks and major cable channels have come to largely avoid the topic in recent years — even during Black History Month. That timid TV backdrop is part of what makes HBO's "Thurgood," which debuts at 9 p.m. Thursday, such a special program. The film version of the one-man play starring Laurence Fishburne as Thurgood Marshall, the Baltimore-born civil rights attorney and the first black Supreme Court justice,l is one of the most frank, informed and searing discussions of race you will ever see on TV. But that exploration of African-American identity is only of several factors that distinguishes this production written and produced by 14-time Emmy-winner George Stevens Jr., of " Kennedy Center Honors" acclaim.

We've found the source for all those wooden parts missing from our 120-year old rowhouse -- the balusters in the staircase, the filigree decorations on the sides of each step, the elaborate newel posts, the double front doors. It's all there, and it may actually be where each of these parts came from originally.There's just one problem. It isn't nearby. In fact, it's at least a hundred years away."George O. Stevens & Co., manufacturers and dealers in Doors, Sashes, Blinds, Slate Mantels," reads the ad in the 1860 edition of the Woods' directory of Baltimore city.
