"Whatever you do, don't make friends with anyone that's friendly. " That goes double for chipper people under overpasses at night. This episode, "Selina Kyle," wasn't so much about the titular antihero as it was setting up the dismal world that she lives in and what she needs to do to survive. That'd be lying, stealing and clawing her way out of tricky situations. It was stronger episode than the pilot. The characters had more time to develop -- and the villains had more opportunity to up the creep factor.

If it's true that a society is known by its most popular artifacts, we are becoming a culture of comic books and games. Our biggest film and TV characters are based on comic book super heroes and villains, while our real life heroes are professional athletes. Watching tonight's premiere of “Gotham,” I couldn't help feeling that if there was any new series that would probably crack Nielsen's Top 10 this fall alongside all the different primetime NFL games and pre-game shows, it would be this one from Fox. You tell me if that's a good or bad thing.

NEW YORK -- The phone rang and Ted Theos heard the voice of trainer Mike Trombetta. "My friend," Trombetta said, "if you want to win the Gotham, you're going to have to do it from the 10th hole." Theos laughed, recalling the conversation about tomorrow's $200,000, Grade III Gotham Stakes at Aqueduct and Sweetnorthern- saint, the thoroughbred he co-owns with fellow Baltimore resident Joseph Balsamo.

The image of Ashley Scott as Huntress, all black leather and cheekbones standing atop a skyscraper looking down on New Gotham at night, is already out as one of the fall's hotter posters. So, maybe it's time for the television series from which it comes to actually debut, don't you think? That would be WB's Birds of Prey, a dark fantasy drama featuring three female crime fighters based on characters from DC Comics. The acting is wooden, and the special effects are not quite feature-film quality.

Kushner, Romano Gucci led the Grade II Gotham virtually wire-to-wire. His time of 1 minute, 34 2/5 seconds over the muddy, one-mile track was the sixth fastest in Gotham history.

LONDON -- The people of Gotham, in Nottinghamshire, have been told their little village is the ancestral home of George Bush and maybe Bill Clinton, too.If this remarkable historical coincidence is true, this would make Gotham even more celebrated than it already is.Gotham is ancient; it is mentioned in the "Domesday Book," the 1086 survey ordered by William the Conquerer. It was part of the territory of the fictional outlaw of Sherwood Forest, Robin Hood.It was also known in English folklore as home to a people of breathtaking stupidity.

Hasim Rahman for governor! The violent demonstrators of Quebec were incoherent about what they oppose, but eloquent on the virtues of violent demonstration. Michael Bloomberg has done more good for Baltimore than anyone since Johns Hopkins. As punishment, he may have to serve as mayor of Gotham. Commander Waddle and the Navy let each other off the hook, which plays pretty well in the service, but not in Japan.

Horses chasing a spot in the Kentucky Derby this year must, for the first time, compile points (instead of graded earnings) by finishing in the top four in a series of races chosen by the staff at Churchill Downs. The revised qualification rules are meant to make it easier for the common fan to follow the Derby trail. So let's keep this simple: the hunt really began last week, with the first two races worth a total of 85 points (50-20-10-5). Previous races had only been worth 17 (10-4-2-1)

Under Armour, a company that angles to outfit the country's most prominent sports stars, has managed to get in on one of the most highly anticipated movies of the year -- "The Dark Knight Rises. " The Baltimore sportswear maker has declared itself the "official outfitter" of the movie's football team, the Gotham Rogues. Under Armour made the team's uniforms featured in the movie. And they're making the fanwear that people can buy. There are jerseys, jackets and hats, all in the team colors that look suspiciously similar to a certain team from Pittsburgh.

Two companies, Gotham Development and Struever Bros. Eccles & Rouse, are investing more than $35 million to convert the five-story former brewery into office space for Humanim Inc., a nonprofit social services agency in Columbia. The city's Board of Estimates unanimously approved a forgivable, no-interest loan for the project, which officials said they hope will spark revitalization in blighted blocks nearby.

With all due respect to Frank Sinatra and his swaggering saunter of a song, "New York, New York," if there's one thing better than waking up in a city that never sleeps, it is never sleeping in a city that never sleeps. While planning my latest visit to Gotham, my list of everything I wanted to see, eat and buy grew so long, I realized my only choice was to disregard any need for that waste of time called slumber. Because I planned to visit on a Wednesday, the city's already vast menu of activities expanded further still, offering the opportunity to see both a Broadway matinee and a theatrical performance later that evening.

City officials approved yesterday the sale of the American Brewery site -- long an eyesore and symbol of a dilapidated East Baltimore neighborhood -- whose redevelopment is expected to help spark a revival. The $5,000 deal turns the property over to a partnership between the Gotham Development of Washington and Struever Brothers, Eccles and Rouse, a Baltimore-based company that is one of the city's premier developers. The companies intend to invest more than $35 million to convert the hulking, five-story former brewery into office space for Humanim Inc., a nonprofit social services agency based in Columbia.

"Gotham: A History of New York City to 1898," by Edwin G. Burrows and Mike Wallace. Oxford University Press. 1,416 pages. $49.95."American Metropolis: A History of New York City," by George Lankevich. New York University Press. 282 pages. $55. This was a year of celebration for New York City - the centennial of the consolidation of the five boroughs into what originally was known as Greater New York. But the year has passed without a ripple. The success of the union of Manhattan, Brooklyn, Queens, Staten Island and the Bronx is taken so for granted, it seems, that its 100th birthday was about as exciting as the arrival of the next A train.

Dear America: Like many other thrill-seeking New Yorkers, I am praying for a presidential race that pits Sen. Hillary Rodham Clinton against former mayor Rudolph W. Giuliani. But only you can turn this political fantasy league matchup into a reality show. I'll bet you're thinking there is enough going on in New York without the state playing center stage to a nail-biting, mud-slinging presidential contest. For most people New York is an exciting place, but for political junkies like me, it's a bore.

CHICAGO -- New York is a model of liberty, or perhaps anarchy, when it comes to political opinion, religion, clothing, body ornamentation, sexual proclivities and public etiquette. But even Gotham has its limits. The city government - which recently considered letting people officially designate themselves a gender different from the one indicated by their anatomy - has decided it cannot stand by as citizens exercise their choices about eating trans fat. Why not? Judging from the allegations, because it's the worst food additive since E. coli.
