Meteorologist Rich Hitchens was monitoring a winter storm headed for Baltimore on three computer screens last night. "It's on its way," he said of a warm-air system from the Gulf of Mexico on a collision course with the cold air over the Mid-Atlantic region. The storm could bolster this month's snow total significantly. It is expected to blanket Central Maryland with 6 to 10 inches of snow before midnight, when it would push north, Hitchens said from the National Weather Service office in Sterling, Va. Forecasters declared a heavy snow warning for 24 hours starting at 1 a.m. today but said the bulk of the snow would fall between 10 a.m. and 6 p.m. The new snow was unlikely to set records, but even a little would push Baltimore over the average of 6.4 inches for February snowfall.

Regarding Susan Reimer 's recent commentary about the death this year of journalist Christopher Hitchens, I take issue with her statement that "I cannot help but wonder where he is now. In an over-populated heaven, filled with all the believers he disdained and a God who forgave him? Or in an underpopulated hell, with a few defiant friends, a bottle of booze, a pile of books and all the time in the universe to talk?" ("To the ones who entertained and inspired, irritated and haunted us," Dec. 26)

Don't mess with Mother Teresa.That's the word to those putting on a film series on religious fundamentalism, which is being sponsored by the Johns Hopkins University.One of the movies scheduled to be shown next week at the Baltimore Museum of Art has triggered an angry reaction among local Roman Catholics. It's an attack on the diminutive 85-year-old Albanian nun who has spent the last 45 years tending the poor and dying in the squalor of Calcutta. Already people are lining up to defend Mother Teresa, who just visited Baltimore last week to watch 35 members of her order renew their vows at the Basilica of the Assumption.

For its January issue, Vanity Fair bows to coolness and the "PF" crowd by putting smoking "Pulp Fiction" star Uma Thurman and her "disturbing beauty" on the cover. So what if the 25-year-old actress has remarkably little to say? Her comeback gig with John Travolta and last year's Oscar nomination poem by Dave Letterman ("Uma, Oprah, Oprah, Uma") have supplied her with enough cover cred for at least another year.Uma's the Queen of Quentinville, and Quentin Tarantino does still rule. Just ask Mr. Travolta, who pronounces in an interview in the year-end issue of Rolling Stone, "If there's a new feeling in Hollywood, it's because Quentin was the first person in a while to feel like we could treat an audience with intelligence.

WASHINGTON -- There's a certain irony in the affidavit signed by a magazine writer vowing that White House aide Sidney Blumenthal testified falsely in his Senate deposition that he had "no idea" how the story that Monica Lewinsky was a stalker "came to be attributed to a White House source."The affidavit, by former Blumenthal friend Christopher Hitchens, a writer for Vanity Fair, says Mr. Blumenthal described her as such during a lunch with him and his wife last March. It has been seized upon by House managers and some Republican senators, demanding that the Justice Department investigate whether Mr. Blumenthal committed perjury in his Senate testimony.

SUN SCORE ***1/2 The title is misleading. Trials contain prosecutions and defenses. This documentary presents the most aggressive case imaginable against Henry Kissinger, the national security adviser and secretary of state who gave America a new image of the "action intellectual" while his attackers say he was committing war crimes in Vietnam, Cambodia, Indonesia and Chile. It treats some of his defenders (including Alexander Haig and Brent Scowcroft) as hostile witnesses. Yet the movie never undercuts his brilliance and his unexpected charisma.

America hates a liar -- or, at least, it hates a liar who gets caught. Lies, per se, are not un-American, of course. By design, Hollywood, the American mythmaker, is and always has been a cottage industry of fancies and fakes. It has infected the whole of American life so much that we are almost unable to distinguish between real and celluloid life -- a truth richly examined in "Life: The Movie" by Neal Gabler (Knopf, 290 pages, $27.50). We like our history revisionist, our effects sanguinary and our endings sanguine.

IN THE vast ocean of debate over the president's future, few waves have been made by warriors of the left. The colleges remain downright tranquil, undisturbed by any noises coming from pro-Clinton demonstrations.Indeed, the only campus posters on the subject take another side: They cry out to impeach the president and are signed by local socialists. The great apathy on the left for defending the president only underscores an underlying truth about the impeachment and trial of President Clinton.

As fans of the late Christopher Hitchens cycle through the five stages of grief, it's interesting to see which of his opinions can still inspire the kind of anger that is unlikely to ever fade into acceptance. There are, of course, the obvious candidates: his characterization of Bill Clinton as "a rapist" or his vilification of Mother Teresa as "a fanatic, a fundamentalist, and a fraud. " There is also his oh-so-chivalrous shout-out to the Dixie Chicks, whom he called "fat slugs" (or "slags" or "sluts" depending on your source)

The Rev. Jerry Falwell's prosaic death in his Liberty University office - just another body, unresponsive and pulseless, on a random floor - has elevated speaking ill of the dead to the level of sacrament. The founder of the Moral Majority may have been a man of God to his 6.5 million followers, but to others he was a charlatan, a huckster and a dangerous fool. Atheist provocateur Christopher Hitchens, Mr. Falwell's most eloquent critic, described the reverend as an evil old man who fed lies to children and who interfered with the Middle East peace process by encouraging fanatics in Gaza.
