There's no crying in baseball. And not much quiet time either. "I think of it as a big, huge wedding reception," said Bob "Woody" Popik, describing his job as stadium disc jockey at Oriole Park at Camden Yards. "Because the crowd is diverse, like a wedding. If you play a wide variety of music, everybody's happy." Baseball executives - and their counterparts in every other professional sport with the possible exception of golf - abhor silence. Fans have grown accustomed to having their games with a side order of sound bites.

The reporting of this item might make me an accomplice to the blatant attempt of two Baltimore-area women to get booked on the next "Geraldo!" or "Oprah." If that's the case, so be it. At least I knew -- or suspected -- I was being used for this purpose. See, what happens is, all those TV talk shows have little pixie producers who read through newspapers, looking for strange phenomena, such as "Women Against Pantyhose," which isn't the name but the raison d'etre of the organization I'm mentioning today (it's actual name is "Women Opposed to Restrictive Nonsense," or WORN)

To the rest of the world, the months between Sept. 21 and Dec. 21 constitute fall. For the recording industry, however, that time is considered the Christmas Rush. It's when CD stores move the most product, and when major labels try their hardest to improve their profit picture.This year is no exception. Big new albums are already out by Fleetwood Mac, Mariah Carey and Puff Daddy, and there's more the way. Bob Dylan, the Rolling Stones, Janet Jackson,Jane's Addiction, L.L. Cool J, Salt-N-Pepa, Shania Twain, Babyface, Barbra Streisand and Metallica are just a few of the acts who will be vying for the top of the pops in the coming months.

Letters, calls and the roar of the crowd:Frances DiPietro, Baltimore: There was more ethnic hatred expressed in your article than was ever felt by our family member, D. M. DiPietro. You can state your resentment in your column based on some obscure reasoning, but you haven't hurt Mimi, you have only made his family feel worse after his death.*Catherine MacKenzie, Baltimore: I am so tired of the media in general erasing the negative side of a person's life after he or she has died.We lived for about 25 years in Baltimore City's First District and while it was true you could call Mimi about a problem and he would work on it and usually get it resolved, he always asked first what nationality you were.

Author James M. Barrie's Peter Pan character made it sound so easy: "You just think lovely, wonderful thoughts," Peter explained, "and they lift you up in the air." But the dancers of the Howard County Ballet will have to bolster any "lovely, wonderful thoughts" with a sturdy rigging system and strong-armed stagehands when they "fly" around the stage this weekend for a ballet performance of Peter Pan. "It's very safe and secure," said Kathi Ferguson, president and director of the Howard County Ballet.

TORONTO -- A year ago, Alison Lohman arrived at the Toronto International Film Festival as an unknown in an actress-loaded movie called White Oleander. But her performance as a foster child who takes abuse at every stop overshadowed the stars, Michelle Pfeiffer, Robin Wright Penn and Renee Zellweger. "I remember they had me in a limo," Lohman says in a recent interview here, "and I freaked out, tears rolling down my cheek and having to get out of the limo and just walk there because I couldn't deal with the limo and the premiere and the dress.
