Lulu, a pleasantly plump pole dancer from Hanover, Md., made quite the splash last night on "America's Got Talent," shimmying and writhing up her pole and eventually landing in a jaw-dropping split. The 27-year-old contestant, who works as an accounting and title clerk, had "a big goal, and that's to dance," she told the cameras. She's been dancing for as long as she could remember, though having two kids sidelined her for a time. Lulu strutted out onto the stage in a teeny aqua-colored bikini, introduced herself, and began her routine.

Lulu Hardesty, who died recently at the age of 91, was one of the quiet civil rights warriors.She was not a militant, nor was she especially political. Yet simply by her example, this well-loved Annapolis school teacher did a great deal more to improve relations between blacks and whites in Anne Arundel County than all but a handful of other activists.Mrs. Hardesty's life was a virtual road map of civil rights history. She got her first job teaching at a dilapidated one-room, all-black elementary school in South County.

Terri Stafford used to take Lulu, her border collie mix, to medical facilities as part of a Baltimore-based volunteer program that enabled her to share her beloved pet's affection with others in need of it. "We did that for several years until Lulu got too sick" with cancer, said Stafford, a retired registered nurse who lives in Baltimore County. "Toward the end, when Lulu wasn't feeling well, she spent a lot of time hiding in the closet. But I'd say, 'Lulu, let's go visiting.' And she'd come running out and jump in the car. She loved it. "I also used to enjoy the way people would light up when I would bring Lulu to visit them," Stafford said.

Emily Flake is growing up. True, it's in a kicking-and-cartooning, still-gonna-smoke (but not as much) kind of way. But 30 is 30, Ms. Flake. These mile markers do something to the soul. The onset of adulthood. Talk of, well, a family. If she's not careful, Flake could end up happy and just might have to tone down or retire her comic alter ego, Lulu Eightball. Our dear, plump heroine, Lulu, could face extinction or happiness herself! Wait, who is Flake? Or, for that matter, Lulu? Emily Flake is the self-described illustratrix of the Lulu Eightball comic strip that runs in City Paper and other alternative weeklies.

Then, in 1955, a year after the Supreme Court outlawed school segregation, she became the first black to teach in a white school.

Frank Wedekind's "Lulu" is a bloody, messy play about sex. Yet the production at Washington's Kennedy Center is far more unsettling than scandalous. "Nothing's shocking any longer," a character says in the first scene, and without downplaying the script's violence or sexuality, director Jonathan Kent's production reinforces that statement. And that's one of the most unsettling things about it. Although Wedekind's 1894 script spawned at least five silent movies (most notably G.W. Pabst's 1928 masterpiece, "Pandora's Box," starring Louise Brooks)

Michelle Milne feels like she's going to give birth this weekend. But she's actually just delivering her graduate thesis in the form of a one-woman show, Looking for Lulu, presented by the Towson University MFA Theater Program today through Sunday at Theatre Project. "I feel like I'm putting my new baby out there for everyone to see," says Milne, who is getting her master's degree in fine arts at Towson. "It's a very personal piece." Looking for Lulu is loosely based on Milne's life and experiences.

From the outside, it's hard to tell there's a tiny dining room in the back of Lulu's. But once you walk past the bar and find that little oasis of tables next to the swinging doors of the kitchen, you're in for a treat - a fine neighborhood restaurant delivering simple, stylish food. Owner Darren Myers, who opened the Aliceanna Street restaurant in October 2003 with his wife, Amanda Cropper, and friend Dwight King said the goal was to create a restaurant that served American bar favorites, and to "just try to do them the right way."

Did they really have to concoct such a nutty opening just so they could bring Lulu back to sing "To Sir With Love" one more time, 29 years later?A middle-age Lulu singing the words of a lovestruck teen in an improbable, hokey scene set in a school gymnasium -- you might think things could not get worse than that in "To Sir With Love II," but they do. They get so bad, in fact, that it might actually make you angry about the way network television -- with...

Howard Stern, Howie Mandel and Sharon Osbourne continue their talent search -- this week in Austin, Texas. Apparently the show doesn't mind reinforcing stereotypes because the first act of the night is a mariachi band led by a 10-year-old named Sebastien Delacruz. He's adorable and the whole act is just really entertaining. The band gets three "yeses" from the judges and they advance to the next round in Las Vegas. Next up, a cowboy who does impressions, but when he opens his mouth it just sounds like he's mimicking a Southern auctioneer.

TODAY, WHILE many are out returning gifts or catching year-end bargains, let's muse on Robert Redford's words in his most recent Sundance catalog of merchandise: "Holidays again. Forgive me while I dodge the rumble of the million-footed throngs that have succumbed to the marketing ether for Christmas and its days. Can we, without disappointing the children and others who long for the surprise of gift giving, just look to a different value to digest?" One might say -- if in a jaundiced mood -- that this is a little holier-than-thou, appearing in a catalog of things to buy!

WOMEN ARE ALWAYS GETTING pregnant on soap operas. They are always having affairs or regrettable one-night stands or having sex while also having amnesia. And getting devastatingly pregnant as a result. The unintended pregnancy is a soap opera plot staple, but it usually happens to the grown-ups. Phyllis is pregnant as the result of her affair with Nick on The Young and the Restless, but she has a grown son. It was a shock because she didn't think she could get pregnant. That's the way teenagers think, too. It can't happen to me. And that's what Lulu Spencer was thinking on General Hospital, when she lost her virginity to Dillon Quartermaine during an unhappy patch in his too-young marriage.

Chair design has evolved slowly through the centuries, but an innovative designer -- using new materials or new structural shapes -- can make furniture that looks radically different from anything else that's on the market.George Hunzinger was a German cabinetmaker who moved to New York in 1855. He patented furniture designs using new materials and new technology. Many of his chairs looked as if they were made from machine parts such as pipes, screws or bolts. Some were folding chairs and some were rigid chairs that just looked as if they could fold.

Willem Roosenburg reached into a white bucket and pulled out a terrapin the size of a hamburger. The Ohio University professor waved a scanner over the freshwater turtle, recording the data from the tiny transponder in its leg before handing Lulu back to her handlers, first-graders from Frank Hebron-Harman Elementary School in Hanover. Tuesday was the last time the first-graders saw the turtle after spending nine months nurturing the hatchling in their classroom tank. It was time to release her and her brother, Blue, back into the Chesapeake Bay surrounding Poplar Island.
