Key storylines heading down the stretch run of Season 2 include the volatile love triangle between Rick, Lori and Shane; Hershel's territorial protection of his farm and the whereabouts of self-amputee and great American badass Merle Dixon.

Billy Wilder said that what Greta Garbo and Marilyn Monroe had was "that strange trick of flesh impact - that is to say, their flesh registered for the camera and came across on the screen as real flesh that you could touch." In Barbershop 2: Back in Business, director Kevin Rodney Sullivan finds that same "flesh impact" in the new gal on the block, Queen Latifah, and the returning cast (female and male) of the 2002 hit about a South Side, Chicago barbershop. He guides them with such intimate assurance that they envelop audiences in the warmth of a small, tight-knit and joyous body politic.

As a nervous flier, I wasn't too thrilled to hear Southwest Airlines could be fined a record $10.2 million for failing to inspect planes for cracks in the fuselage. This isn't the sort of thing that makes nervous fliers feel "free to move about the country," I can tell you that. In fact, when the story broke a few days ago, I could imagine hundreds of my jittery brothers and sisters who were flying Southwest at the time, opening a newspaper at 30,000 feet and seeing the headline: "AIRLINE FACES PENALTY ON PLANE CRACKS."

Every week, we attempt to use the power of the press to get to the nitty-gritty of consumers' problems. Often, we find truth and resolution. Occasionally, we find truth and no resolution. This week, we're just dizzy. It began with a complaint from Mark Everett, a 43-year- old systems engineer from Perry Hall, that his Carolina Skiff was being held hostage. About a year ago, Everett said, he paid $23,000 for the 23-foot boat from Beacon Light Marina in Bowleys Quarters. At the end of July, Everett took the boat to the Outer Banks for a week-long fishing trip.

First there were Three Tenors. Then Three Mo' Tenors. Now comes 3 Mo' Divas. Capitalizing on the Three Tenors phenomenon -- an international hit, not to mention a PBS fundraising staple -- six years ago, director/choreographer Marion J. Caffey devised an African-American version called Three Mo' Tenors. Not wanting to shortchange the ladies, he has come up with 3 Mo' Divas, which is making its East Coast debut at Washington's Arena Stage. Actually, there are six divas, because the vocally demanding show has two alternating casts.

Do the Miss USA contestants need a makeover? Maybe the 51 beauties don't, but pageant officials apparently thought this year's show could use one. They've hired the quippy king of makeover shows, Carson Kressley, to work the room during Friday's telecast. Kressley, of Queer Eye for the Straight Guy fame, will play the role of "color man" -- a first for the competition, in its 55th year. He's charged with enhancing the broadcast with his commentary "on everything from the ladies' gowns and their beauty looks to their on-stage presentation," officials say. Look for Kressley to be out-and-about in the aisles of 1st Mariner Arena, the site of this year's pageant, cracking wise in his signature way. He'll pair up with current Miss USA Chelsea Cooley, who also will offer some commentary before giving up her crown, and he'll add a bit of levity to the co-hosting chore shared by Nancy O'Dell, of Access Hollywood, and Drew Lachey, this year's winner of Dancing with the Stars.

Lucky Number Slevin features lots of cool dialogue but doesn't provide much of a movie in which to showcase it. The result is likely to leave audiences feeling as though they've been taken for a ride. There are things to like about this movie - some good performances, enjoyable plot twists, unique (if a bit too quirky) characters - but hardly enough to leave one wanting more. By the time the credits roll, Lucky Number Slevin has worn out its welcome. The trouble starts early, with a way-too-self-consciously impenetrable opening in which Bruce Willis, in a wheelchair, rolls up to a guy and, unprompted, starts talking about something called a "Kansas City shuffle," a con artist's move in which the mark's attention is directed one way while the action's happening in the other.
