ANNAPOLIS resident Elizabeth Pollak is a woman of vision. The 82-year-old's dream is to build a community center for Eastport where all the disparate groups in the neighborhood can work toward reconciliation.A year ago, she sent out thousands of questionnaires to determine what kinds of services were needed. The initial response wasn't great, especially among lower-income groups, but she reports that progress since then has been "slow but sure.""The people who are really interested in what I'm trying to do are coming together and beginning to work together," she says.

PHILADELPHIA - As federal authorities prepare for a death penalty trial against the reputed leaders of one of the city's most ruthless drug gangs, their evidence includes the one thing that has been nearly irrefutable in American courts for decades: a fingerprint match. But what might have been a legal slam dunk is suddenly under intense scrutiny. In a ruling that could become a critical turning point for how evidence is gathered and criminal cases are won or lost, a federal judge presiding over the drug and murder case has become the first judge in the country to question the scientific soundness of fingerprint evidence and to restrict how it can be used in court.

The Whole Nine Yards shouldn't have worked. The plot was contrived, the direction uneven. But thanks to the cast, that 2000 action-comedy came out OK. Bruce Willis, Matthew Perry, Amanda Peet and Natasha Henstridge all have a gift for flakiness, and that was just enough to produce a fairly regular supply of giggles. It was as if they, and some of the others in the cast, were in a conspiracy to ignore or make fun of what was dull or stupid about the film. And much of the time they made you feel like you were in on the joke.

The Colombo Bay, by Richard Pollak. Simon & Schuster. 262 pages. $25. Intrigued by the way that imported goods, a feature of our global economy, reach these shores, longtime Nation editor Richard Pollak decided to investigate that behemoth of the modern ocean: the container cargo ship. Flying from his home in New York to Hong Kong to join the P&O Nedlloyd vessel Colombo Bay on its westbound trip, he finds himself in a very different world. The date is Sept. 11, 2001, and the attacks on the twin towers and the Pentagon have occurred while he is en route.

Not since Sam Donaldson and Diane Sawyer were forced to share an anchor desk for the debut of "PrimeTime Live" have I seen chemistry as awful as that of Nancy Travis and Kevin Pollak in the new CBS sitcom "Work With Me."I kept wondering who would be crazy enough to stick with the casting after they saw the two actors on screen together, and then I found out the co-executive producers were Travis, Pollak, and Pollak's wife, Lucy Webb. Why do I think a more impartial group of producers might have seen things more clearly?
