Chicago -- I'm here to write about "The Jerry Springer Show." But a youthful assistant director has just commanded me not to take notes until speaking with the publicist. The problem is, the publicist is too busy to talk.Everybody is too busy to talk.When I called from Baltimore about attending the show, they said I couldn't go behind the scenes, couldn't talk to Jerry's producers, and certainly not to Jerry himself. He's too swamped with media requests. He's God. He's the anti-Christ. He's bigger than Oprah!

`The Idiots' 1/2 Grace Quek is a 27-year-old woman who, in 1995, using the pseudonym Annabel Chong (a combination of Edgar Allan Poe's "Annabel Lee" and comedian Tommy Chong), earned her 15 minutes of fame by having sex with 251 men in 10 hours - apparently a world record. Quek's sojourn to the outer limits of sex became a monster-selling video, landed her a guest spot on "The Jerry Springer Show" and even got her into a debate at Cambridge University. She actively participated in making "Sex: The Annabel Chong Story," documentary filmmaker Gough Lewis' unflinching but ultimately unenlightening attempt at figuring out just what she was thinking.

BOSTON -- For one brief moment this fall -- before Monica became a household voice, before Barbara Walters and Andrew Morton got video and print dibs on her story -- it looked as if Fox TV had won this ultimate TV "get." They were ready to pay a $3 million talk tab.Of course, the Fox folks insisted on a scrupulous parsing of their media ethics. Why no, Fox News wouldn't pay the bill -- theirjournalistic palms would be clean -- it would be Fox Entertainment.With that uproarious pronouncement, I asked the musical question: News?

"We, for a lack of a better word, screwed up. We have to find a solution right now." Craig Patrick Pittsburgh Penguins general manager, after firing coach Ed Olczyk last week "He hates the thought that he's going to have to go [after the Rose Bowl]. I know you think he's concerned about the money and all. But he's really not. He really doesn't want to leave." Pete Carroll Southern California coach, on quarterback Matt Leinart (above) "Artest is The Jerry Springer Show in basketball shorts, a dysfunctional, volatile head case who poisons whatever he touches."

"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.

Today, class, we will use for our lesson the periodical that represents an eminent contribution to American journalism and literature: TV Guide.Reaction to the Jerry Springer column has been swift and mostly anti-Springer. The lone letter that wasn't comes from a woman who must be the bravest person in all of Maryland. Clovia Sampson of Baltimore wrote:"Why is everyone criticizing 'The Jerry Springer Show'? Does everything we watch have to be intellectually stimulating? I don't think so, or we would have a world of geniuses."

After three power outages in downtown Westminster in less than three weeks, residents and business owners are looking for some answers. They may get them Monday at a meeting with Baltimore Gas & Electric Co. officials that will be sponsored by Rep. Roscoe G. Bartlett.About 1,200 BGE customers were left without power for two hours Tuesday morning after a fencing contractor hit a wire while digging near a substation. The area was left in the dark Feb. 19 thanks to a faulty cable, and on Feb. 4 after a metal sign in a BGE substation fell on a wire.

"The Jerry Springer Show": Jerry reunites "baseball's favorite sluggers" and "the fans who refused to give their home run balls back." A melee breaks out on stage when Philip Ozersky tells Mark McGwire that if he had just said "the magic word," he never would have sold the ball. The show's security staff, aided by the entire Illinois National Guard, finally pry McGwire off Ozersky, whose neck looks remarkably like the handle of a Louisville Slugger. MTV's "The Real World": The gang in Hawaii gets "real" with their new roommate, Philip, a 26-year-old science nerd from St. Louis, after they discover he's been auctioning off their belongings to fans of the show.
