THE "handgun" episode of the television show "Roc," -- overrated and overhyped -- aired for the second time last Thursday. I was as unimpressed with the second showing as I was with the first.Maybe I'm too curmudgeonly to see the merits of this particular show. Or maybe I just have a different view of things from down here where the bullets are actually flying.It's not that Charles S. Dutton, the Baltimore-born actor who plays Roc, and the writers and producers of the show didn't mean well.

Comedian Joan Rivers once talked about how she came of age in the mid 1960s with Richard Pryor, Bill Cosby, Woody Allen and George Carlin in comedy clubs in Greenwich Village, where Johnny Carson's people would troll for new talent. She recalled that she was the last of the group to make it to "The Tonight Show," the last of the pack "allowed" to break through. "When I started out, a pretty girl did not go into comedy," she said. "I never was one of the guys, I was never asked to go hang out. "Looking back, I think it was because I was a woman, I was the very last one of the group they put on the Carson show.

These are tough times for the middle-class white male. He discovered a vaccine for polio, split the atom and landed on the moon. But he seems to have an empathy deficiency that no multivitamin can cure. The poor guy can now add "no meaningful life story" to a list that includes sexist and clueless. I can see a third act for Defending the Caveman, the one-man show about a guy in love with a television set, in which he talks about growing up in a suburban cul-de-sac in an intact family.

AS I PACKED for my first visit to Las Vegas, I was sure that watching old ladies pour their life savings into slot machines would depress me. Within a day, I learned how to play craps and fantasized about walking away with my own stack of $100 chips. When you're feeling lucky, chips seem like play money, making it easy to rack up hundreds of dollars in losses in a matter of minutes. Alcoholics need at least a weekend to go through $100 of cheap wine. Although most people are able to gamble responsibly, 1 percent to 2 percent of the adult population have a diagnosable gambling problem, according to Christine Reilly at the Division on Addictions at Harvard Medical School.

A study of firearm assaults in six states, including Maryland, found that young males make up the largest share of those who go to the hospital with an injury, supporting previous research. But it also found black females were more likely than white males to go to the hospital with such a wound. The study, by the Urban Institute based on 2010 hospital data, showed uninsured victims were more likely to die than those with insurance. And up to 64 percent of the hospital costs were paid for with public money.

The study, "Governmentwide Strategy on Advancing Pay Equality in the Federal Government," was released this month.

For her debut novel, a modern-day comedy of manners called "The Love Affairs of Nathaniel P," the Baltimore-raised author decided to explore - and expose - the thinking of the kind of guy that she and her friends used to date. Nate is a rising star on the New York literary scene, fueled by insecurity and arrogance. He's a serial dater who justifies dumping his girlfriend a few days after she'd had an abortion by reassuring himself "that he was not the kind of guy who disappeared after sleeping with a woman - and certainly not after the condom broke.
