THE RELEASE of a movie doesn't generally rate an editorial. Re-releases are even less likely to garner comment. But the reopening this Friday of Francis Ford Coppola's epic Apocalypse Now is worth mentioning - not so much for its cinematic feats as for the enduring salience of its allegory. True, Apocalypse Now Redux boasts new footage that helps smooth some of the original film's rough narratives and fills some gaping storyline holes. It will certainly enhance the movie's compelling visuals; it will embolden Mr. Coppola's master status among Hollywood storytellers.

When I departed Fallujah, Iraq in October 2007 after a six-month deployment with the U.S. Navy as a tribal and political engagement officer, I left a city that appeared to have turned its back on Islamic radicalism and was focused on peacefully participating in the national life and politics of a post-Saddam Iraq. All across Al-Anbar province and throughout the Sunni Arab community, the tide of the al-Qaida insurgency had receded as Iraqis rejected the Islamist movement's harsh Sharia rule, raw brutality and false promise of a better future.

Well, well, Mr. Ehrlich has a fantasy about how the economy takes off if Romney had only won ("What might have been: Life under President Romney," Jan. 27). He needn't dream of what might happen, just go back to 2001 and fast forward through eight years of history. There were even some ginormous tax cuts for the wealthy. Wow our economy must have been in the stratosphere by the end of the story, right? V. Moore, Catonsville

SUBDUED AND CHASTENED, yet enamored as always with ideas and ambition, Newt Gingrich has received the nod of House Republicans for a second term as speaker -- the first member of his party to have an opportunity to preside over a re-elected GOP majority in 68 years.Two years ago, when the Republican House Conference rang to cries of "Newt, Newt, Newt," the congressman from Georgia was full of himself as he proclaimed the need for "large changes for this country to succeed and work in the 21st century."

Everybody is asking about the new appetite suppressant, Redux. Does it really work? Is it safe? Have we truly found the cure for obesity?For people with significant obesity, approximately 30 percent above ideal weight, or people who are 20 percent above ideal weight with another health problem like heart disease, diabetes or high blood pressure, Redux can play an important role in triggering weight loss, which reduces health risks. But for people with just 10 to 20 pounds to lose, it poses more health risks than it prevents.

When I think back on the Greek restaurants that have opened and closed north of the city (and there haven't been many of them), I think the new Grapevine Cafe (20 Church Lane, 410-667-0010) in Cockeysville may be on the right track. It's offering something for everyone. There are the usual suspects on the menu: stuffed grape leaves, spanakopita, pastitsio and roast leg of lamb, Greek style. But there are just as many American dishes, from a crab cake to a New York strip. Entree prices run from $13 to $28. Grapevine has a neat little wine list, a children's menu, sandwiches and salads, and, of course, baklava for dessert.

Pan-Asian was one of the top restaurant trends in '07, and a couple of Pan-Asian places opened in the Baltimore area last year. These have menus that aren't Asian fusion, but offer Japanese, Chinese, Thai and Vietnamese dishes. Sushi is usually part of the mix. Add contemporary American to that list, and you'll have Luminous, the new Pan-Asian restaurant in the Westin BWI Hotel (1110 Old Elkridge Landing Road, 443-577-2310) in Linthicum. The food and beverage director is Edward Evans, formerly at the Hyatt hotel downtown.

Baltimore's Planning Commission has at last conceded what urban planners have known for decades: Promises of tax revenue can never be the sole concern in urban development conflicts.The current conflict, which had been languishing in the commission for almost a year, was whether to endorse three city council bills to allow developer Leonard Attman to buy one lane of Redwood Street and build a $90 million office tower at the southeast corner of Redwood and Charles. The project was plagued by controversy from the start -- primarily because it asks the city to sell public land to a private developer for purely private purposes, but also because the sale risks altering the ambience of the area and threatens traffic congestion and parking problems as well.

For the second time in 10 months, Mays Chapel residents on Monday night used a public hearing before the Baltimore County Board of Education to express their opposition to the use of Mays Chapel Park for a new 700-seat elementary school. Over the course of the two-hour hearing at Loch Raven High on Jan. 14, many of the three dozen speakers cited economic, environmental and personal reasons for the board to vote down the park as a schoolhouse location in what will be the board's second vote on the matter.

Horse racing 'Redux' retirement home still up in air Rapid Redux is still retired, but his retirement home has yet to be determined. On Thursday, owner Robert Cole said the horse would not race again, and trainer David Wells said Rapid Redux would be going to the Kentucky Horse Park. But Wells said Friday that he learned that the part of the Kentucky Horse Park he had been speaking to was actually the Secretariat Center, which retrains racehorses for post-racing careers.

After six months off to recover from the wear and tear of a North American record 22 straight victories, Rapid Redux will be retired next week to Kentucky Horse Park, his owner Robert Cole and trainer David Wells said. "He's perfect right now and we want him to stay that way," said Cole, a Towson native. "Why risk having him get beat. " Located outside of Lexington, Kentucky Horse Park is home to many famous horses, including Cigar, Da Horse and Funny Cide. John Henry, who was a resident, is buried there.

THE CAMPAIGN of pleas, proposals and political pitches worked. All the letters, lobbying and legions of ideas on how to save the Hubble Space Telescope paid off. NASA's top administrator, who had scrapped a manned space mission to repair the aging Hubble, has reversed course. The lesson: Don't take no for an answer. Steven V. W. Beckwith, director of the Space Telescope Science Institute in Baltimore that manages Hubble, put it slightly differently: "Keep the faith." Hubble, whose astonishing views of planets, black holes and deep space have mesmerized the world, had been given the proverbial pink slip.

DESPITE BUSH administration efforts to downplay the latest face-off between North Korea and the United States, it's without question a serious crisis. Among the worst-case scenarios: A few missteps could turn the Korean peninsula into a horrific bloodbath in just a few weeks - with death toll estimates ranging from 500,000 to several million. That doesn't even include Japanese deaths if the North started lobbing missiles at U.S. military installations there. From there, it wouldn't take much - say, a missile attack on Alaska - for the conflict to go nuclear, if the North hadn't already dirtied the battlefield with its biological, chemical and nuclear weapons.

"I love the horse," owner Robert Cole said. "The trainer has done an incredible job. I feel very blessed. It's an incredible feat of luck and incredible skill by the horse.
