Josh Selby emerges from the Stevenson University locker room, his hot pink sneakers with silver trim sparkling as he takes the floor. The Lake Clifton graduate's eye-catching shoes - which he says he wears to raise breast cancer awareness - quickly become an afterthought once play begins and his flashy game is on display. In the first quarter of Ravens wide receiver LaQuan Williams' charity basketball game late last month, Selby finds himself stuck in a corner beyond the arc, tightly guarded.

LAST WEEK, the House committee investigating illegal campaign contributions voted along party lines to cite Attorney General Janet Reno for contempt of Congress.The action was prompted by her refusal to turn over subpoenaed documents from the Justice Department's own chief investigator Charles LaBella, who recommended that she appoint an independent counsel to investigate administration and Democratic Party officials for possible criminal violations of campaign-finance laws. So who's playing politics, congressional Republicans or the attorney general and her Democratic defenders on the committee?

Center Stage's one-woman show series, "The Feminine Singular: Women Speak Solo," has started off with a comic kick from "Citizen Reno," the latest piece by the New York performance artist whose energy level is as high -- and occasionally as unruly -- as her trademark mass of peroxide curls.Though "Citizen Reno" has been staged by a director (Tina Landau), in a theater, on a stylish set (designed by Heather Carson) and features a storyline with a beginning, middle and end, that story is essentially a thin framework for Reno's humorous commentary on current events.

WASHINGTON -- There was a time not too long ago when the office of attorney general was unabashedly a place for the president's chief political adviser or even political crony to hang his hat. Ronald Reagan had William French Smith and Ed Meese; Richard Nixon had John Mitchell; John Kennedy had his brother Robert, and so on.But times have changed, to the point that when the current attorney general, Janet Reno, was asked the other day whether she had any...

WASHINGTON -- Try as they might yesterday, the Republican congressmen investigating the assault of the Branch Davidian compound near Waco, Texas, could not shake Attorney General Janet Reno's resolve.She made the best decision she could, with the information she had, to end the 51-day standoff at Mount Carmel, she said. That decision -- to approve the FBI's plan to use tear gas to force the surrender of sect leader David Koresh and his followers -- ended in disaster. The Davidians set a fire that consumed the compound, Koresh and his followers, including 22 children.

Her mission will be to rebuild the Justice Department, a 90,000-employee agency in deep distress over scandal and political maneuvering.

"Anything Goes" still makes for a pretty smooth crossing at Toby's Dinner Theatre of Columbia. In case you've forgotten, Cole Porter's 1934 musical lifted the spirits of folks during the Great Depression. Now the reworked 1962 revival has slipped back into its tap shoes to take our minds off our own financial woes. The festive mood is infectious from the moment you enter the comfy Columbia playhouse. Nautical flags flap from the rafters, part of set designer David A. Hopkins's ploy to transform Toby's theater-in-the-round into the top three levels of a classic ocean liner.

Sketch comedy thrives on TV. Its hit-and-miss nature is perfect for a medium that allows the viewer to walk away for a few minutes. The movies are less tolerant: If you don't hit the target every time, you've got some explaining to do. The heroes of Reno 911!: Miami frequently miss their targets -- or hit the wrong ones -- and are left with too much explaining to do. If you're familiar with Reno: 911 on Comedy Central, you need no introduction to this doltish octet of law enforcers led by gung-ho Jim Dangle (Thomas Lennon)

The prospect of thousands of slot machines at Maryland racetracks and elsewhere in the state has attracted intense attention from manufacturers, which are pouring money into lobbying efforts in hopes of expanding their market. A gold rush by companies that make and support slot machines is going on in Pennsylvania, where the state has authorized more than 61,000 statewide. Maryland is considering plans to allow about one-fourth as many, but International Game Technology of Reno, Nev., the nation's leading slots manufacturer, has donated $8,000 to Republican Gov. Robert L. Ehrlich Jr., and pumped $100,000 into a national campaign fund associated with Senate President Thomas V. Mike Miller, a Democrat, since 2002.

The following editorial appeared this week in the Miami Herald. AS THEY SAY on Saturday Night Live, it's Reno time. Unfortunately, there might not be many laughs in a drawn-out gubernatorial battle in Florida pitting the former attorney general against Jeb Bush. It might, in fact, get ugly. What it shouldn't be is dull, despite the fact that neither candidate is an electrifying presence. Janet Reno brings to the race a prickly independence, a formidable intellect and a truckload of baggage from the Clinton administration.

Opening night at Anything Goes confirmed that the folks at 2nd Star Productions excel at creating scintillating opening scenes forecasting the fun to follow. Before the S.S. American left the dock, the excitement and high humor were revved up by a lively assortment of passengers on board. The megawatt energy of the ensemble reflects choreographer Vicki Smith's distinctive sense of joy and good humor along with her ability to generate excitement. In this show, many of the dancers are teenagers with a spark that sets them apart, and they capture the essence of a show that their great-grandparents might have enjoyed in 1935.
