A former Baltimore County jail employee has sued Baltimore County in U.S. District Court, alleging the county permitted a "systematic pattern of sexual harassment" by a former co-worker who also was her ex-lover.In her $750,000 suit, Sherrie L. Heckel charges that James Dean, director of the county Bureau of Corrections, "acquiesced" to the harassment.Mr. Dean, she alleges, also retaliated against her for filing a discrimination complaint with the U.S. Equal Employment Opportunity Commission by transferring her to a shift that put her into "even greater" contact with her former lover, who was not named in the suit.

All these years later -- almost 40 years later -- the guys from the pool hall showed up again, and they were all young, good-looking and lean, and some of them sexy in that 1950s Sal Mineo-James Dean way. Here they were again, the boys from Benny's, bending over pool cues, hovering over cards, all brought to life when a fellow named Mike Lang decided to print some photographs he'd snapped in 1957 on a Leica 3C.Amazing. Lang, who was born in 1942, had contracted polio when he was 7. He took up photography as a way of getting in touch with the world.

Rebel James Dean didn't have a cause, but he did have a fashion statement.Wearing a plain white T-shirt with the sleeves rolled up, he brought the undergarment out in the open in 1955 and created an image that captivated teen-agers.Since then, Americans have dyed, painted, silk-screened, embroidered and ripped T-shirts. We parade our politics, amuse, promote products and musicians, show where we've been, and even sleep in them.The T-shirt as we know it today was born by accident.In 1960, Rick Ralston, a skinny California kid just out of high school, decided to spray-paint designs on beach towels and sell them.

NEW YORK -- James Marshall is not really a morose kind of guy.He laughs a lot, smiles even more. And he's in love.The young actor, who first gained fame as the sullen, sensitive James Hurley in television's "Twin Peaks," is playing a sullen, sensitive boxer from Connecticut in the new film "Gladiator." The movie is about the underground world of illegal boxing in Chicago and the ghetto youth that it exploits.In real life, Mr. Marshall -- born in Queens and raised in New Jersey -- is a pretty upbeat guy, flushed with his fast-paced career and a new marriage.

New York--The address was east of Seventh Avenue rather than east of Eden, but James Dean showed up anyway.In fact, about 200 James Deans made their way to the Actors Theater Workshop on West 28th Street earlier this week to take part in a look-alike casting call for a new off-Broadway play, "James Dean/A Dress Rehearsal."There were short James Deans, tall James Deans, young James Deans, somewhat older James Deans, and a few whose resemblance to the late cult hero was strictly coincidental.

Luigi Petti would drive a demographer wild.On a recent Saturday night, it looked as if every neighborhood in town had sent an archetypal representative to this newest of Little Italy eateries. The booth next to ours held a Middle American couple and son who might have been Beaver Cleaver's next-door neighbors, while creatively dressed Maryland Institute types dined across the aisle. Occupying adjacent spaces at the bar were two women, one in a moussed skyscraper hairdo and dagger heels, another who looked just like Barbara Bush, were the first lady an Italian housewife.
