WASHINGTON -- Dividing 5-4, the Supreme Court made it much easier yesterday for federal prosecutors to convict someone of carrying a gun during drug trafficking or a violent crime.Under federal law, a gun is carried, even if it is not in a suspect's hand or clothing but instead locked in a glove compartment, a trunk or somewhere else in a vehicle in the course of a crime, the court majority declared."No one doubts that one who bears arms on his person 'carries a weapon,' " Justice Stephen G. Breyer wrote for the majority.

We have to try to be kind and humane. " Maestra Alsop is too kind. No one has to bring a cell phone into a concert hall or theater. Leave them home or in the glove compartment. Henry Cohen, Baltimore

We are only a quarter of the way through 2002, but I guarantee you that BBC America's Vacuuming Completely Nude in Paradise is going to be one of the 10 best movies you will see on television all year. It has almost everything that television haters claim the medium lacks: originality, edge, daring performance and searing social commentary. I love this jagged, crazy rant of a film from Danny Boyle (Trainspotting). The great performance comes from Timothy Spall (Shooting the Past) as Tommy Rag, an amoral, repellent, turbo-charged madman of a vacuum cleaner salesman working the bleak, gray housing projects of Manchester, England.

Is Baltimore County Wallace country? That's a question I posed in an earlier column after getting several calls from readers who say that it is. Today I tell a tale of two police stops and will let our readers -- eminently smarter than Sun columnists and editors -- draw their own conclusions.Stop No. 1: Dec. 5, 1996, at Fulton Avenue and Pratt Street. I stop as the light changes from yellow to red. A Baltimore City police car pulls up behind me. To my left is someone driving a sport utility vehicle.
