Last night's episode attempts to answer timeless questions: Is it possible for women to find a balance between their families and their careers? How far should loyalty go in friendship? And how come what happens in Vegas never actually stays in Vegas?!? First up, Alexis invites Gretchen over to get her opinion about her latest segment. You know -- the one we, the viewers, suffered through two weeks ago. The topic was the sexualization of children and, despite her panel of experts, Alexis dominated the discussion while showing enough cleavage to nurse a third world country.

Pussycat Dolls Doll Domination cds Like the Mary Jane Girls before them, the Pussycat Dolls are essentially pinups fronting as a singing group. The quintet scored a huge hit three years ago with the strip club-friendly "Don't Cha," a catchy, teasing single that pushed sales of its debut, PCD, to platinum. But still, nobody in the group stood out. Despite the success of "Don't Cha," the Pussycat Dolls, which started as a burlesque dance troupe after all, remained faceless. Even solo attempts made by the group's only vocalist, Nicole Scherzinger, went splat.

Dancers whirled around poles, booze flowed, and customers denounced Gov. William Donald Schaefer yesterday as The Block sprang back to life after Friday's large-scale raid"I'm glad I don't come from Maryland. They say Maryland is for crabs, and they're right -- Schaefer is a crab," said Aaron Kuhns, 26, sitting with a scantily clad dancer at the Club Pussycat.Business was brisk at the Pussycat, where customers and employees talked about the raid and whether The Block will bounce back."This is a working-class place," said Mr. Kuhns, a Kentucky native who attends welding classes at the Maryland Rehabilitation Center in Baltimore.

I'm told that audiences at the Charles break into hysterical laughter when treated to the two minutes of previews for Russ Meyer's 1965 "Faster, Pussycat! Kill! Kill!"Well, the movie's now here and the laughter's about to die. Why? Eighty-one more minutes of "Faster, Pussycat! Kill! Kill!" -- that's why!Generically, the film belongs in that subchamber of the dank and scummy dungeon of the male pornographic imagination know as the Strong Woman Fantasy Room. Abandon hope all ye who enter. It's about three strong gals -- go-go dancers, that font of guy imagination circa 1965 -- who, helling around with their sports cars in the desert, come across a crippled male family, and set about destroying it to get at secret money.

Conservatives show no interest in conservation Cal Thomas' column on a University of California, Berkeley study of conservatives ("A liberal misdiagnosis," Opinion Commentary, July 30) failed to explain the reason that the last thing a conservative thinks about is conserving anything. The study did not explain it either. Many conservatives call concerns such as that about global warming a mere hoax; they also dismiss other concerns about the environment as the mere rantings of those crazy environmentalists.

YOU GET the impression the Clintons wish somebody -- anybody -- would step in and take this health-care thing off their hands. The press' polite way of saying this is that both President and Mrs. Clinton have "signaled flexibility."With 100 lobbies laboring for clients whose devotion to health care would be the very model of Christian selflessness if only the beastly profit motive would slink away and die, the Clintons must feel some of the loneliness Custer experienced when Sitting Bull turned up.Their frequent invitations for everybody to jump in and help revise their health program suggest an alarming lack of self-assurance by political standards, which are not much different from the standards of professional prizefighting.

Mike Flynn couldn't believe his eyes. During recent off-season camps, the Ravens center watched his young teammates make countless mistakes and waited for coach Brian Billick to erupt into a frenzy. But there was nothing. No yelling. No harsh words. Not even a nasty glare. Flynn never got such slack, vividly remembering the daily chewing-out sessions in 1999 by the rookie head coach for anyone who messed up. One time, Billick threw Flynn out of practice for jumping offside, cussing him out for good measure.

Robyn Pike suspected her daughter had run away from home in July when the teen-ager skipped her 9 p.m. curfew in Middle River. What Pike did not suspect was that the 16-year-old had found a job -- as a stripper on The Block, where grown men called her "Baby Baby" and paid $20 to sip a watered-down drink with her at the bar. Pike rescued her daughter -- a family acquaintance told her about the gig -- and went to the police. They filed criminal charges against the club manager, which ended with an acquittal, and an administrative complaint with the city liquor board, which levied an $8,000 fine and ordered Club Pussycat to shut down for five days.

NEW YORK -- All this talk of Sylvester Stallone's make-over from monosyllabic muscleman to pudgy Everyman has disturbed my sense of order so much that I beg him to join me in pushups. Just a few, I urge, entering his Central Park South hotel suite. "No, no, no," he says, explaining later, "A little listlessness has set in."The slight bulge hanging over his slacks as he sits in front of a half-smoked cigar is proof. But the changes brewing inside his gut aren't as apparent, so Stallone announces them.

We would have remembered him if it was just the songwriting or just the dancing or just the eyebrow-raising fashion. But Michael Jackson dominated each of those artistic avenues - and so many others. You see his influence in every Justin Timberlake who sweats to perfect a signature move. Every movie-esque flourish in a video. Every African-American artist who sits atop the pop charts. His legacy is as enduring as it is multi-faceted. 1. Sound When America first met Jackson, he was a lovable, pint-sized pre-teen with a puffy Afro and an electric voice.

OCEAN CITY -- Hurricane Felix? Felix? What kind of name is Felix for an act of nature that huffs and puffs? Felix Unger, they were thinking? What was it supposed to do, mess up the town and then tidy up after everyone's gone home?Anyway, Felix never did make much of an appearance. Like a dog chasing its own tail, it spun around for a few days safely off the shoreline, and then turned its back on everyone and bolted even farther out to sea, where it can fuss with itself all it wants."No big deal," says a guy shucking clams at a boardwalk raw bar. "We got lucky again" -- although strictly speaking, his establishment's a little empty, and for the first time in memory on a hot August weekend, you can drive along Coastal Highway and see one hotel with "Vacancy" signs lighted up. One hotel marquee declares, "Hurricane Special -- $48.95."
