Marlise Munoz was 33 when she died. She was at home when she collapsed from an apparent blood clot in her lungs. It was an hour or more before her husband, Erick Munoz, found her. He says doctors pronounced her brain dead, though John Peter Smith Hospital in Fort Worth, Texas, citing privacy concerns, has declined to confirm that diagnosis. It is, at any rate, nearly a month and a half since this happened, yet Ms. Munoz remains hooked up to life support. Her mother wants her removed.

Before Dec. 1, doctors had worried that a new law requiring hospitals to discuss with patients the possibility of using artificial life support systems would unduly shock or startle some patients.

The death watch continues for "My So-Called Life."Despite a groundswell of fan support and new life on MTV, the struggling ABC coming-of-age drama is a long shot to make the fall lineup, says co-executive producer Marshall Herskovitz. The network will decide "Life's" fate by mid-May."I'd say it's 60-40 against us being renewed," says Mr. Herskovitz, 43. "This show has been so near death for so long in so many ways, we're used to it. We're fatalistic about it. We waited 18 months to get on the air at all. ABC ordered episodes in dribs and drabs."

COLLEGE PARK - The pain, Dez Wells said Saturday, is familiar. It is personal. The Maryland wing lost a cousin to cancer when he was 14 years old. She was only 7. Zach Lederer, maybe the most famous student manager in Maryland basketball history, is older than that, but the anguish in College Park was no less intense, the end to come no less unsettling. The 20-year-old Ellicott City native, whose strongman pose and indomitable spirit in the face of brain cancer spawned a viral homage , was taken off life support Friday night, family members said.

At the 40th anniversary of the Watergate break-in of the Democratic National Committee headquarters, an act that eventually led to the resignation of President Richard M. Nixon, the chief lesson seems hopelessly lost. The lesson was this: Of all the corrupting influences in politics, beyond the anything-goes mentality that can drive participants to excess in their quest to win, none takes a back seat to unlimited and unaccountable money. When the Nixon political apparatus got caught red-handed illegally entering the DNC offices on the night of June 17, 1972, one of the first responses, as Nixon himself said, was to find the funds that could buy the silence of the apprehended burglars.

Life Support is the kind of film that separates HBO from every other commercial channel on television. First, it stars Queen Latifah, who is normally seen on the big screen in feature films like Chicago. But more importantly, it offers an enlightened and touching exploration of AIDS in the African-American community - the kind of controversial and potentially downbeat topic that prime-time network TV steadfastly avoids. Life Support premieres at 8 Saturday night on HBO - with 15 additional showings throughout the month.
