Each of the remaining five couples had to perform two dances tonight, including an "instant jive" -- a dance choreographed on the spot just 20 minutes before performing it. Rob Kardashian danced first with a polished quickstep and earned a gold star from the judges for tucking in his bum this week. Judge Carrie Ann Inaba called Rob the "ideal contestant" as someone who came in as a poor dancer and has improved each week. He earned 9s across the board. Bonus: Host Tom Bergeron told Rob, "You had the best week of any Kardashian.

Jacoby Jones begins the finales tonight coming down the staircase in purple and gold, with partner Karina Smirnoff in a purple dress -- a nice nod to Jacoby's hometown of New Orleans. Their first round is the "judges' pick" dance, and it's the jive. Jacoby says in an interview that he was in the middle of the pack through a lot of the competition, but now, with a tie for the lead last week, he's put on his burst of speed for the last 100 meters. Judge Len Goodman shows up in the rehearsal studio to work with Jacoby on his footwork.

"Should you say 'His figures don't jive with mine' or 'His figures don't jibe with mine'?" a student asked the other day before class.Since my knowledge didn't jibe with the data he requested, I resorted to teacher jive: "That's a good question," I replied. "It's // very complex, though. Not enough time to explain it here in the hallway. Stop by my office tomorrow."Racing home to my dictionary, I discovered:* "Gibe" means to taunt, heckle or jeer someone. It's somewhere between "deride" and "kid."

STANDING IN Baltimore Circuit Judge John M. Glynn's courtroom Thursday, Assistant Attorney General Glenn Marrow paused a second after the question was put to him. "Do you think Central Booking would be less crowded if police stopped arresting people on jive humbles?" "I can't comment on that," Marrow said. "All I can say is that my client is working toward a solution on this." Marrow's client was the state Department of Public Safety, which runs the Central Booking facility. The "this" was the problem of suspects spending 48 to 72 hours in Central Booking before seeing a court commissioner.

Nancy Grace's wardrobe malfunction will be the most infamous moment of this episode of DWTS. To cover a few seconds of time while host Tom Bergeron tipped Nancy off to adjust her cleavage ("On the European version, that would be perfectly fine," he assures her.), the cameras panned to a backup shot of a bored-looking audience. But enough about the nip-slip already. On to the dancing... Fast-paced dances often befuddle novice dancers. And that was true for a few of the contestants who took on the jive and quickstep on tonight's show.

Nobody on the panel knew what "jump-out Tuesdays" were. Not Baltimore State's Attorney Patricia C. Jessamy. Not Councilman Kenneth N. Harris Sr. Not Del. Keith E. Haynes or Tara Andrews, a candidate for a state Senate seat in the 40th District. Not Kevin A. Brooks, another state Senate candidate. Not even Andrey Bundley, the former principal of Walbrook High School who said he's making another run for the mayor's office. A short black man who had graying hair and was wearing a white T-shirt posed the question Wednesday night at First Greater Church of God Apostolic, where the Rev. Jeffery Mitchell serves as pastor.

AIDS StereotypesI applaud The Sun's Jan. 9 editorial supporting public service announcements about condoms and AIDS.It is true that human behavior is difficult to change, but many people hope that public service announcements will help raise awareness about AIDS and encourage individual reconsideration of personal behavior.A major hinderance to increased awareness about AIDS is typified in the editorial's characterization of AIDS as "spread primarily through homosexual contacts between men and through needle sharing by intravenous drug users."

Michael Bolton sits calmly at a ritzy New York hotel restaurant, contemplating his potato leek soup as he hears a Conan O'Brien joke that had him as a punch line. Something about Mariah Carey's being offered millions to leave her recording contract - which means Bolton must look forward to becoming a billionaire. He smiles. It's along the lines of another O'Brien monologue joke a few years back: "Michael Bolton said yesterday he now wants to become an opera singer. Which is great, because now my Dad and I can hate the same kind of music."

When 'N Sync's current album, "No Strings Attached," arrived in stores in March, it was a sensation even by the hormone-crazed standards of contemporary boy-band boom. The disc sold 2.4 million copies in seven days, shattering the previous first-week sales record, held by teen-pop rivals the Backstreet Boys. That immediately made the group's tour - which plays RFK Stadium in Washington this evening - the summer's hottest ticket. Subsequently, 'N Sync's record company, Jive, was swamped with interview requests from newspapers, magazines and radio stations.

ONE OF THE most difficult acts for African Americans is to give themselves permission to make money. I don't mean chump change. I mean serious money. White people's money.Instead of honoring those whose enterprise has taken them to somewhere within shouting distance of white people's money, we belittle them for even daring to think they can improve their condition, as if the imperatives of black solidarity precluded any of us from making an honest buck.Few were torn by this conflict more than my first wife, Leanita McClain, an African-American, ghetto-to-Gold-Coast success story whose upward climb was stopped only by the torment of her inner conflicts, made worse by clinical, and ultimately fatal, depression.

MISTRUST OF PUBLIC officials runs high among the general public, but what do you call a politician whom fellow office holders say they can't trust?The credibility gap between Gov. Parris Glendening and leaders of many the state's largest subdivisions is unusually wide. "I can't trust him" is what the majority of them say in private. The source of that distrust stems from the fact that Candidate Glendening, then the head of Prince George's County, left his executive brethren under the impression he would "hold them harmless" from budget cuts if elected governor.
