Truly rotten movies can be somehow liberating. One is soon freed of the responsibility of paying attention to the story or the actors and one's mind and attention may wander unfettered through the information on the screen, looking for oddities.In "Leprechaun," for example, I soon noticed that everybody in the movie except for the title character and a very boring hero who looks like John Davidson before puberty, has a similarly shaped head. They all look like slightly melted M&Ms, with tiny little foreheads and beady little eyes distending almost triangularly into a wider, flabbier lower face.

Occasionally this column takes a look at what happened to a person or thing that was a memorable part of Laurel's past. This month it looks at two Laurel icons from the late 1960s and early 1970s. Laurel High coach set the standard Laurel High School was never known for fielding excellent football teams. Ron Ladue changed that. Ladue inherited a football program that was not expected to win.

In case this cruel and unusual four-week break has left you totally baffled on what's going on and who's zoomin' who and what Sue's up to …. here's what you missed on Glee! So the newest Glee addition is Rory the faux leprechaun (and in case you were worried, like I was, the fake leprechaun is substantially less offensive than the girl with fake Asperger's) who is definitive proof that McKinley is the most unreal high school of all time. Seriously, coast to coast in any 100 percent red-blooded American school, the new Irish exchange kid would pretty much be Prom King by default.

Post-season NCAA basketball will begin today, and continue tonight, on CBS. Other stations prefer to spend some time observing St. Patrick's Day -- although Showtime's prime-time showing of the horror film "Leprechaun" is hardly what you'd call getting in the proper spirit of the holiday.* NCAA basketball tournament (noon-5 p.m., 8 p.m.-conclusion, WBAL, Channel 11) -- Eight hours of basketball, and this is only the first day of the championship. That's the way the ball bounces. CBS.* "The Simpsons" (8-8:30 p.m., WBFF, Channel 45)

IT'S NOT YET the Fourth of July and sparks are flying. But not in a good way. Teen-agers trying out a new kind of jumbo sparkler legally available for the first time in Maryland aren't taking the time to read the instructions. And the consequences have been significant: An Abingdon house was set ablaze and destroyed, a front porch in Hagerstown burned, a barn in Cecil County caught fire. Kids are lighting the sparklers while riding in cars and then tossing them out the windows. But these big sparklers are ground-based fireworks, which means you're not supposed to hold them -- or throw them.

Go out for a brew tomorrow and you are bound to hear this conversation at least once: "Dude, I've been drinking since 6 a.m.!" "Yeah, man, me too!" "It's only noon, and I'm exhausted!" "Yeah, man, me too!" From Guinness breakfasts to green beer and the inevitable Irish jig, St. Patrick's Day brings out the sloppy side in plenty of people. After all, it's hard not to party when there are so many options citywide. Here are some of the bigger throwdowns around, by neighborhood: With radio personalities, tons of live music and leprechaun look-alike contests, the Party on the Point starts tomorrow and also spans all day Saturday.
