He can sing. He can dance. He can do color commentary for the NBA, shill for McDonald's and suck face with Cameron Diaz at the same time. He's Justin Timberlake. And he's unbearably annoying. At 22, Timberlake is the most sought-after American music act of the moment. We're not sure why, but we do know that it's really hard to take seriously a former Mouseketeer turned curly-haired homey. Rumor, in the form of In Touch magazine, has it that Timberlake is threatening to auction off love letters from ex-girlfriend Britney Spears and donate the profits to charity.

The 1st Amendment allows us freedom of speech, but that doesn't give us license to yell "FIRE!" in a crowded theater. Doesn't similar logic also apply to the 2nd Amendment, written at a time when the muzzle-loaded musket was state of the art? David Weinstock, Forest Hill

LONDON -- She moves determinedly through Hyde Park with a stick in her hand, like that little old lady who chases dirt on the household cleanser can. Preceding her is a gigantic jaw -- a jaw set in an immense head supported by a small muscular body, stumpy legs, all the gray color of a rat.As the little old lady and her pet pit bull advance, people and other dogs part before them like the waters of the Red Sea. As they draw near the fenced bird sanctuary dedicated...

As Sheree said, "Life isn't full of cherries and berries!" I think I told you guys this would be a good one. I was giving a lot of side eyes and girl pleases to my television. This episode was full of shockers from Kim's wedding-inspired baby shower, to Sheree building a home from the ground up as if there's any other way (SMH), to Peter and Apollo's overly hyped argument which was overshadowed by Apollo's extremely high-pitched angry voice.

WASHINGTON -- Civil liberties groups are concerned about the Justice Department's request to Congress for greatly expanded powers to fight terrorism. While they're at it, they would do well to consider as part of the same fight the State Department's recent attempted muzzling of the Voice of America. At issue was an exclusive VOA interview with Mullah Mohammad Omar, head of the Taliban regime in Afghanistan. In it, Omar repeated that the Taliban would not turn over suspected terrorist leader Osama bin Laden and asserted that "America has created the evil that is attacking it."

Howard County's expanded deer hunt starts before dawn tomorrow, when hunters carrying muzzle-loading rifles are set to enter the woods at Columbia's western edge, set up their tree stands and wait. The first three days of the expanded hunt at the Middle Patuxent Environmental Area off Trotter Road are for hunters using only the old firearms technology. Muzzle-loader deer season begins statewide Thursday, state Department of Natural Resources officials said. "The idea is being out in the woods.

A Baltimore County Council member said yesterday that his effort to require pit bull owners to muzzle their dogs in public and cage them at home was likely to fail, as dozens of people urged council members to defeat the proposal. But Councilman Vincent J. Gardina said he planned to move forward with the bill. Gardina said that even though he appears to lack the council votes needed to pass the bill, he wants to make the point that more needs to be done to prevent attacks. His bill, prompted by the mauling in April of a 10-year-old Towson boy, would require pit bull owners to equip their homes with concrete-based cages, muzzle their dogs in public and buy insurance to cover expenses after attacks.

Reflecting on my 24 years hosting a radio talk show, I realize once again how timing is everything in life. In 1984, when I worked Saturday nights and as a vacation fill-in, talk radio was pretty primitive. There was no Internet, no cell phones, not even fax machines. The programs we did back then were drastically limited, both in who was likely to call in and in the ways we hosts collected news and opinion pieces to talk about on the air. The callers were stay-at-homes, the proverbial little old ladies in tennis shoes, or, late at night, insomniacs of one sort or another.

Dominic Solesky was playing tag behind his family's Towson rowhouse on a spring afternoon when he heard his friend scream. The 10-year-old boy remembers running down the alley to help his pal. He heard a rattle from a nearby cage -- and then saw a brawny dog jump a fence and head his way. The attack's toll: two surgeries for Dominic and more than two weeks in the hospital. Now, a Baltimore County lawmaker says Dominic's suffering shows that more must be done to protect the public from pit bulls.

BGE must halt efforts to tell customers about an electricity rate deferral plan negotiated by Gov. Robert L. Ehrlich Jr., a Baltimore judge ruled yesterday, opening a path for arguments over whether the state should have gotten a better deal for 1.2 million ratepayers facing a 72 percent increase this summer. "It makes little sense ... to have the parties continue to issue public information which may or may not turn out to be accurate upon the conclusion of these proceedings," Baltimore Circuit Judge Albert J. Matricciani Jr. wrote after a hearing on a suit by the Baltimore mayor and City Council that seeks to force the Public Service Commission to reconsider the deferral proposal.

NEW YORK --The top climate scientist at NASA says the Bush administration has tried to stop him from speaking out since he gave a lecture last month calling for prompt reductions in emissions of greenhouse gases linked to global warming. The scientist, James E. Hansen, longtime director of the agency's Goddard Institute for Space Studies, said in an interview that officials at NASA headquarters had ordered the public affairs staff to review his coming lectures, papers, postings on the Goddard Web site and requests for interviews from journalists.

A Border terrier's self-appointed job, says Joyce Kerns, is to please.Mrs. Kerns, who breeds Border terriers, describes the dogs this way: ''They are not so fancy or stylish, but loving little companions who are plucky, alert and who own the people they live with. They dedicate themselves to pleasing.''The breed is the oldest of terriers -- they are working terriers who go to ground after the fox, hedgehog or small critters. Breed information reveals that in the 1700s they were used by farmers on the Scottish-English borderlands.

Anyone who has ever walked a dog has experienced that terrifying moment when a vicious, unleashed dog is intent on doing harm to yours. It's a dangerous situation even for owners of big dogs; for small dogs, it could be a fatal encounter.I know of many people who walk with their dog's leash in one hand and a heavy stick in the other to protect them in just such circumstances. But one dog trainer offers another strategy.Speaking recently at a seminar in Chico, Calif., Job Michael Evans, a New York City dog trainer and the author of several training books, suggested making your dog a less appealing target while forcing the canine terrorist to think twice about approaching you.Mr.

CHICAGO - For decades, supporters of the war on drugs have been losing the debate about the policy, even as they continue to lock up hordes of harmless offenders. But prohibitionists have a new tactic to help them get the best of the argument: Don't let the other side speak. One day last year, Ernest Istook noticed an ad on the Washington Metro transit system with an unusual message: "Enjoy better sex! Legalize and tax marijuana." Most people who ride the bus or the subway manage to absorb all sorts of little surprises on their daily commute, but not Mr. Istook.
