SAN FRANCISCO -- Jerry Springer for Senate? Why not? Ohio elected a senator who was farther out in space than Springer.Think how C-SPAN's ratings would soar.Think how entertaining impeachment trials could be, especially if senators could be given lighter chairs, ones they could throw.Think how enlightened the Senate could become on issues such as male lesbians, cross-dressing nudists and bosses who cheat on their wives with young employees while conducting foreign affairs on the phone.Oh, that's right.

It's a topic that belongs on Jerry Springer: the 'Burgh's unhealthy bridge fetish. There are 446 in the city - even more than in Venice, Italy, the real "City of Bridges." There are 1,900 in Allegheny County alone. These people put up bridges the way the rest of us put up wallpaper. You know the old saying, "If you've seen one bridge, you've seen them all"? They never heard that in Pittsburgh.

At long last, Jerry Springer can rest easy. The talk-show host was the latest to be ejected on this week's Dancing With the Stars, something he and many others have been expecting for weeks now. Don't get me wrong - the guy knows how to entertain (and he's more charming than I would have anticipated), but he's not that great a dancer. Now, we'll enter the final four with contestants who can all really move: Monique Coleman, Joey Lawrence, Mario Lopez and Emmitt Smith.

Classical Music Mozart's 'The Marriage of Figaro' : Heinz Blankenburg, Mirella Freni, Leyla Gencer; Silvio Varviso, conductor (Glyndebourne, three CDs); $51.98; available from various retail and online stores. Another recording of Mozart's The Marriage of Figaro? Well, yes. And one to be grateful for, at that. The summer opera festival at Glyndebourne on the grounds of an elegant estate in the south of England has enjoyed an exceptional cachet since 1934. Thanks to an enterprising fellow who recorded most Glyndebourne performances since the late 1950s, the company has a treasure of operatic gold in its vaults and is now sharing it with the world.

Tucker Carlson was an obvious out the first week on Dancing With the Stars 3. But Shanna Moakler? It's pretty clear that, at least for now, the voting is all about fan base and not so much the dancing. How else to explain that Jerry Springer's still in it? I think he'll be around for a while, much to the consternation of some of the better competitors.

"Ringmaster" offers the answer to a question that has stumped America: Is there anything more cynical, sleazy and appalling than Jerry Springer's TV show?I'm afraid there is. It's a movie about Jerry Springer's TV show, or at least one just like it.In "Ringmaster," actors and actresses play guests on the show. Since Springer has already been outed for using actors to play the just-regular-folks on his popular program, the kindest thing you can say about the movie is that it's redundant. It's also vulgar and words-fail-me stupid.

Jerry Springer has said he really only signed up for this season of Dancing with the Stars so he could learn to waltz for his daughter's wedding. He'll get his chance tonight, after making it through the cha cha, quick step and tango. He's basically been asking people to not vote for him to stay after this. But I'm not so sure his fans are the type to actually take advice -- even if it's from the guy they like so much.

In a fall season of highfalutin serialized dramas, the most compelling soap opera on television has played out on the ballroom floor of Dancing with the Stars, which concludes its third season tonight. Love -- or its lusty cousin -- has blossomed between partners Mario Lopez and Karina Smirnoff, partners Willa Ford and Maksim Chmerkovskiy, and an unidentified coupling co-host Samantha Harris will only allude to and giggle about. Beauty queen Shanna Moakler got into a bar fight with Paris Hilton, of all people.

Why do Dancing With the Stars viewers insist on casting their votes based solely on who they like and totally ignoring ability? I get that people like Wayne Newton, but it's ridiculous that he stayed on despite a 15/30 from the judges, and Albert Reed was sent home instead. Either the stars need to be of the same level of popularity, or, as one of my blog readers noted, the viewer vote should count for less. We don't need another Master P (or Billy Ray Cyrus or George Hamilton or Jerry Springer)

Identity is infinitely flexible, but the English language is not, and Deborah Rudacille felt its limits when writing her new book, The Riddle of Gender. The Baltimore author had to use words that assign gender regardless of chromosomal or psychological subtleties, the shopworn "he" and "she" - except when one transwoman insisted on being called a "sie." And except, of course, whenever a more common genderless term cropped up. The pronoun "I" is perhaps the most important word in the book, and not just because it skirts grammatical technicalities.

Farewell, My Only One, by Antoine Audouard. Houghton Mifflin. 336 pages. $24. The story of the 12th-century lovers Heloise and Abelard has gripped people's imaginations for almost a thousand years. It's been the subject of poems, novels, plays, scholarly treatises, a movie and an opera. It predates the written accounts of Romeo and Juliet, Lancelot and Guinevere, and Tristan and Iseult. It's the star-crossed lovers' story par excellence. But it has what those tales, based on mere myth, lack: historical fact, and an element of barbarity that can still cause us to cringe.
