Maybe Maryland Dems should put MD4BUSH back to work. The state party seems to have lost the art of political cyber-sleuthing. Last week, the party sent out a long news release that opened with this claim: "Evidence is mounting that former Governor Bob Ehrlich and his new North Carolina law firm's Maryland-based staff are the driving forces behind a totally anonymous and controversial smear website." Later in the release, the party referred to "the confirmed connection" between Team Ehrlich at Womble Carlyle and the site, www.omalleywatch.

Bryce Butler had just returned from his honeymoon when he was robbed by a masked man in Bolton Hill. He didn't care about his cash, his credit cards or even his car. But he didn't want to lose the custom-made wedding band his wife had placed on his finger two weeks earlier. "I said, `I just got married. Please don't take my wedding ring,' " Butler said. "He looked at me and said, `Do you want to die?'" Police returned the ring to Butler and his wife, Mara Neimanis, yesterday after recovering it from a suspect held in a recent string of robberies and carjackings throughout the city.

The Wachowski Brothers, who made the intoxicating The Matrix and its two rotten sequels, wrote the screenplay for V for Vendetta. Once again they prove themselves our reigning masters of murk. When it comes to brewing up trouble (rather than sorting it out) they're nonpareil. They mold this anarchistic fantasy, set in the near future, around their elusive strengths. Call it long, call it choppy, but also call it spectacular. This film succeeds at sustaining a jet-black-comic setup for voluptuous slashings and explosions.
