Over the past 181 years, the bill of sale has turned a pale tan. The ink has faded from black to brown and includes elaborate flourishes that seem ill-suited to such a grim and ugly business. On Feb. 25, 1832, the bill reads, a slave named William Johnson "about eighteen years of age" was sold to the owner of an Alabama plantation for $550 - or roughly $14,000 in today's currency. "This document changed my life," the Los Angeles-based philanthropist and collector Bernard Kinsey says about the piece of paper he received as a gift in the 1970s from a friend.

There's a lot of talk about sex in Kinsey, Bill Condon's acclaimed film from last fall about the groundbreaking sex researcher Alfred Kinsey. And even more talk about sex on the two-disc DVD (Fox, $35) of the film that stars Liam Neeson as Kinsey and Laura Linney as his wife. In addition to deleted scenes and commentary from Condon, the digital edition includes several frank, adults-only extras including The Kinsey Report: Sex on Film - a feature-length documentary - and even the sex histories of members of the cast and crew.

At the end of last year's " 'H' is for Homicide," Kinsey Mill-hone was fired from her part-time job as an investigator for California Fidelity Insurance, courtesy of an insufferable efficiency expert who took an instant dislike to her. "In the weeks since I'd been terminated," Kinsey recounts, "I'd gone through all the stages one suffers at the diagnosis of a soon-to-be-fatal disease: anger,...

The Inner Circle, by T.C. Boyle, Viking, $25.95, 432 pages It is, they say, an urban legend that men think about sex every seven seconds. So let's be reasonable - and let's throw in women, too, because, after all, it is the 21st century - and put it at closer to every seven minutes. If you're within hailing distance of a bookstore, that could give you just enough time to find T.C. Boyle's latest novel, The Inner Circle, which is not just about sex but about the father of the sexual revolution, Alfred Kinsey himself, who set all those 1950s hormones free.

DR. ALFRED KINSEY was a zoologist studying gall wasps at Indiana University in the 1940s when some of his married students, finding him accessible, approached him with questions about sexual problems they were having. His amazement at their ignorance -- one couple believed that oral sex caused infertility -- caused him to start a "marriage" class at the university, which was soon filled to overflowing with students who pretended to be married or engaged so they could enroll. Finding that he still could not answer their questions about what was "normal," he took a survey of sexual practices among his students.

Generations ago, Baltimore poet Folger McKinsey wrote "Charles Street in the Fall" about a stroll through the city. On Saturday, his descendents gathered for their 100th reunion, where they ate, played games and celebrated their heritage. "It's neat that this will carry on," said organizer and distant relative Glenn Opperman Sr. of New Jersey. Wearing turn-of-the-century garb to commemorate the centennial, Opperman, 60, said, "We're all afraid to say, 'This is it.'" On Saturday, the extended family gathered at Brandywine Springs State Park, site of the first family picnic in 1910, to continue the legacy and to remember the past.

Averaged American: Surveys, Citizens, and the Making of a Mass Public Sarah E. Igo Harvard University Press / 398 pages / $35 Boccaccio, the medieval collector of sexual exploits, told much better stories than Alfred Kinsey, claimed a columnist for the Tampa Times. But in 1949, he complained, "unless you have statistics and graphs," no one will pay attention. Aggregate data have always had a special resonance, relevance and authority in democracies where, at least in theory, the majority rules.

The nearly 600 pupils at Folger McKinsey Elementary School certainly were excited when the school's National Blue Ribbon flag was unveiled - cheering and clapping and pumping their little fists in the air as they sang the school's "We Rock, We Rule" anthem. But the pupils sounded most excited when it was announced that they would each be getting a doughnut with red, white and blue sprinkles with their lunch Monday as a reward. They'd earned the treats. The U.S. Department of Education named Folger McKinsey a National Blue Ribbon School - a designation also earned by five other Maryland schools last year.

S Is For Silence Sue Grafton Marin Wood/Putnam / 375 pages It's difficult to think of Sue Grafton without one specific word embedding itself in the brain: endurance. As soon as she published her first alphabetical mystery, in 1982, one could see how arduous a task it might be to continue all the way to the letter Z while keeping each book separate and reasonably fresh. Twenty-three years on the end is a lot closer in sight, but unfortunately it's proving to be more of a limp than a sprint to the finish line.

SUN SCORE : ** With gung-ho verbal flourishes and fierce or poignant scowls, Liam Neeson sanctifies the crusading American sex researcher Alfred C. Kinsey in Kinsey. This human lightning rod from Indiana University becomes nothing more than a genitalia-obsessed heir to the sentimentalized intellectual crusaders of Hollywood yore. Paul Muni's Louis Pasteur and Emile Zola - along with Russell Crowe's recent portrait of John Nash - can't rival the Kinsey of this movie in either beneficence or controversy.

Nineteen years ago, Sue Grafton published her first "Alphabet" mystery, "A is for Alibi," introducing female private investigator Kinsey Mill-hone. Now up to No. 15 -- "0 is for Outlaw" (Henry Holt, $26) -- Grafton is visiting Baltimore to discuss the latest in her string of best-selling novels. We decided to tell her story -- and Kinsey's -- from A to Z. (You'll have to follow the clues to find out where and when she will be in Baltimore.)A is for the alphabet. In hindsight, Grafton seems brilliant for picking a thematic device that makes her books not only memorable, but easy to arrange in chronological order.

Watching that great but miscast actor Liam Neeson glower his way through Kinsey, I kept thinking how much more fun Warren Beatty would have had with the part. Throughout Beatty's career, his innate erotic confidence has empowered him to play impotence (in Bonnie and Clyde), abstinence (in parts of Reds) and middle-aged panic (in Bulworth). Sexual befuddlement is not beyond his range. In fact, it's with a combination of ardor and confusion that Beatty began his film career and became an instant star.
