Ann Coulter has built a successful career out of giving voice to America's angry right. The author of five New York Times best-sellers since 1998-including Slander (2002), Treason (2003), and her latest whack at the political hornet's nest, Godless: The Church of Liberalism (Crown Forum), currently No. 4 on the New York Times nonfiction best-seller list. Coulter, a Universal Press Syndicate columnist who once practiced law, is well known for producing insults so outrageously offensive that they disturb even some conservatives.

New York-- --Actress Megan Lawrence is wearing a hip pink Indian dress over white cotton pants. Her lips, however, sport retro red lipstick, the same shade as her perfectly manicured nails. Her lips and nails say "Gladys Hotchkiss," the 1950s secretary she portrays in the hit Broadway revival of The Pajama Game. The rest of her getup -- which includes fuzzy animal slippers -- is pure Megan Lawrence. Her husband, also a Broadway actor, describes her as "a college-dropout hippie who made good."

The little kids who once sat in the classrooms at Park Heights Elementary school are long gone, replaced by much older students who attend a privately-run technical school. Five years have passed since Baltimore's school system shut down Park Heights and five other school buildings. Now Magna Baltimore Technical Training Center pays the city $1 a year to lease the old Northwest Baltimore school. Four of the other properties also remain under city control while one other has been sold. In the coming months, city officials will grapple with the problem of what to do with six more buildings.

HOUSTON -- The Chicago White Sox captured their first World Series title since 1917 last night, defeating the Houston Astros, 1-0, to complete a four-game sweep. Astros closer Brad Lidge allowed a two-out, run-scoring single to White Sox outfielder Jermaine Dye in the eighth inning for the game's only run. The White Sox swept the series, but it was not exactly in dominating fashion, as they earned three one-run victories after a two-run win in Game 1. Regardless, they joined the 1999 New York Yankees as the only teams to go through the postseason with one loss since the playoffs expanded in 1995.

The artificial turf at M&T Bank Stadium has been unkind to a number of Ravens over the past year. Team officials, though, have no plans to return the favor. Even though four key players have had toe problems at home since November, the Ravens are sticking with their Sportexe Momentum turf for the foreseeable future, attributing the injuries more to circumstance and footwear rather than surface. Deion Sanders was the first to go down when he hurt a toe against the Cleveland Browns midway through last season.

My father used to say that you need the right tools to do the job right, but he was talking about screwdrivers. The same is true in the kitchen, where cookbook author and housewares consultant Jamee Ruth makes it her mission to get cooks comfortable with their tools. What exactly is a braiser? Or the difference between a saucepan and a saucier? Didn't the cast-iron skillet go out with washing clothes in the river? In her new book, The Cookware Cookbook (Chronicle Books, 2005, $18.95)

SOME OF the new music I've enjoyed the most boasts lean, quirky productions -- uncluttered soundscapes with slick, undeniable hooks. I'm thinking about Gwen Stefani's "Hollaback Girl," which sits atop Billboard's Hot 100, and the Ying Yang Twins' "Wait (The Whisper Song)." It's not always about the lyrics, which, in pop especially, can be painfully trite -- even if they are catchy. (The Game and 50 Cent's "How We Do" and Brooke Valentine's "Girlfight" come to mind.) It's all about the production, really: the placement of guitar lines, the beat, the overall sound of the record that pulls us in. The production of the new releases on this week's playlist ranges from a bit familiar but adventurous to nauseatingly predictable with a few OK moments here and there: Nine Inch Nails, With Teeth: That jarring industrial rock sound spearheaded by NIN was hot in the mid-'90s, around the same time Nirvana blew up. Trent Reznor, the man who records as Nine Inch Nails, is back with an album that echoes The Downward Spiral, his hit 1994 set. With Teeth retains the lyrical bleakness and misery associated with the Ohio native's music.
