Since moving to Baltimore from Cleveland for the 1996 season, the Ravens have been one of the NFL's best performers in the annual draft. They have had their share of great picks, but some busts as well. The Ravens have participated in 13 drafts and have selected a total of 15 players in the first round. Of those, eight are currently on the roster. Those 15 players have earned 39 Pro Bowl invitations. At the beginning of last season, 60.8 percent of players the Ravens drafted were on NFL rosters, the second-highest rate in the league.

They're moronic. They're destructive. And they star in one of the hottest shows on television.They're Beavis and Butt-head, the cartoon characters featured in the highest-rated series on the MTV music video cable channel. Recently they popped up on the cover of Newsweek. And talk-show host David Letterman, that paragon of hipness, has taken to quoting the boys' trademark utterance: Huh-huh-huh, huh-huh-huh. Cool.The characters' popularity may mystify some folks. After all, B&B pass time by setting fires, sniffing gas fumes and making lewd comments while watching videos.

As any TV viewer knows, the Diet Pepsi commercial stars Ray Charles merrily singing: "You got the right one baby, uh-huh," while a bevy of foxy beauties wiggle and join in on the "uh-huh."

The great thing about the English language is that it has so many words; you can be selective to ensure your message reflects your personality, as well as conveys your meaning. For example, if I were to describe the English language with the phrase, "It's got more words than you can shake a stick at!" I would appear down-to-earth and folksy. On the other hand, if I wanted to appear lofty or even pretentious, I might write: "Its myriad options give linguists and ordinary citizens, pari passu, unlimited opportunities to impart individuality."

Ben Huh launched his Web site in February with the modest goal of helping Seattle-area residents find dog parks and pet stores. In the first month, Itchmo.com - named in honor of his dog's constant demands to be scratched - registered just 350 hits. "I don't even think our friends came," said Huh, 29, a software company product manager. Then came the March 16 recall of 60 million containers of pet food after reports of illnesses and deaths. Huh posted a few bits of information on the suspect foods and links to recall lists.

As might be expected of a notoriously reclusive singer-songwriter, PJ Harvey has repeatedly warned us against looking at her songs as autobiographical. But she writes and sings with such convincing character and detail that it's hard to separate the writer from the emotional sieges she describes. In "Shame," one of the key songs on Uh Huh Her, Harvey's first album in four years, she tells of a woman so immobilized by failed relationships that she doesn't even know where to put the blame for what seems certain to go wrong in the latest one. Against a spare, bluesy backdrop, she explains her devotion and dilemma: And if you tell a lie I still would take the blame And if you pass me by It's such a shame, shame, shame.

KOSUNG, North Korea - When she is asked the question, Seo Min Hye, a 22-year-old South Korean, giggles, plays with her long, dyed-red hair, fidgets nervously in her trendy ripped blue jeans and stops to think. It's a really tough one, she says: Given the choice of who should rule a reunified Korean Peninsula, would she prefer a pro-American candidate who nearly won the presidency of South Korea in December, or Kim Jong Il, the dictator in Pyongyang? "If I had to pick one, it would be Kim Jong Il," said Seo, one of more than 150 college students from Seoul who took a boat to a North Korean mountain resort this week.
