There's new life in Back River — though not quite what folks had been hoping for. The eastern Baltimore County waterway, long degraded by sewage and development, has been humming the past few summers with hordes of midges, gnat-like insects that swarm over the water and along the shoreline. They don't bite, though they look like mosquitoes. But their mating swarms are bedeviling waterfront residents, boaters and marina operators because the bugs are drawn to lights and light-colored objects.

Though it tries hard, "I'm Not Rappaport" can never really escape the reality that it's about two old guys sitting on a Central Park bench, talking.Originally a beloved stage play, where its artificiality was not a liability but a value, the film version feels static and slow-moving. Worse, the actors, particularly Walter Matthau, have been instructed to try to reach Row ZZ in the third balcony and to pay no attention to that camera thing there, two feet away. It was directed, perhaps too reverentially, by its playwright, Herb Gardner, most famous for the winsome "A Thousand Clowns."

`I'm Not Rappaport' returns to the stage A star-studded revival of I'm Not Rappaport, Herb Gardner's 1986 Tony Award-winning play about a pair of senior citizens sharing a bench in Central Park, opens tonight at Ford's Theatre in Washington. Judd Hirsch re-creates his Tony-winning role as Nat, a cantankerous radical, and Ben Vereen plays mild-mannered Midge, an apartment superintendent. A co-production with Coconut Grove Playhouse in Florida and Paper Mill Playhouse in New Jersey, Rappaport reunites the show's original director, Dan Sullivan; set designer, Tony Walton; and lighting designer, Pat Collins.

It isn't just the old-age makeup, Coke-bottle eyeglasses or gray hair and full beard that make Ben Vereen's transformation in I'm Not Rappaport so remarkable. It's the tentative way he moves, the tremor in his hand, the squint in his eye, the sandpaper in his voice. Granted, Vereen's co-star, Judd Hirsch, re-creating his 1986 Tony Award-winning role, is the actor most closely associated with Herb Gardner's play, currently at Ford's Theatre in Washington. But Vereen's performance is a revelation.

Olney -- At the start of Olney Theatre's production of "I'm No Rappaport," two old men, one black and the other white, sit on a park bench. From their positions, it's clear that they share this bench unwillingly.The black man is perched at one end with his back to his comfortably situated neighbor; he insists he's through listening to the other man's lies. But by the end of the play, not only are they sharing the bench happily, the black man is actually encouraging the white man's stories.

I was 8 years old when I first met Barbie, and I wanted a life just like hers. She had a boyfriend, Ken; a best friend, Midge; and a lot of clothes. From Barbie, I learned a sartorial approach to existence: You need only to have the right outfit, and the life to go with it will appear. Buy a poofy dress and you get a date for the prom; plan a trousseau and marriage will follow; buy the right suit and a career would materialize. But today, Barbie turns 50, and I don't think she's prepared.

I am planning a car trip through the Scottish Highlands from next May 1 to Sept. 1, but I would like to stay clear of that ferocious pest, the midge.Which times and places should I avoid?Although there are 34 known midge species in Scotland, one particular type, Culicoides impunctatus, which inhabits the west Highlands and islands, is a persistent pest that is responsible for most of the bites to humans.These tiny insects, with a wingspan of only 1.4 millimeters, live and breed in bogs and can cause real misery in June, July and August, and sometimes, according to the local people, as early as May and as late as October.
