I'm young, tall and skinny and know the long transparent dresses the designers did for summer are just for me. I want to buy one to wear to my cousin's engagement party, but both my boyfriend and my father are flatly against it. They say it is too bare, that I will be uncomfortable and so will they. What do I wear with a dress so it won't reveal too much?You can do one of two things: Wear something under the dress or something over it.New York designer Anna Sui, who did some of the most romantic sheer dresses this season, suggests wearing a pale slip, full or knee length, under it."

New releases of video cassettes; reviews by New York Times critics:"Cyrano de Bergerac." 1990. Orion. $89.98. 2 hours, 18 minutes. French with English subtitles. No rating.A touch of cosmetic prosthesis adds just enough to Gerard Depardieu's own generous nose to make it the object of ridicule and swordplay in Edmond Rostand's romantic verse drama.Smitten by Roxanne (Anne Brochet), Cyrano acts as a go-between for her and his none-too-articulate cohort, Christian (Vincent Perez). Jean-Paul Rappenau's film is a physically elaborate period spectacle, and Mr. Depardieu's performance is a "disciplined whirlwind of conflicting emotions that finds surprising new life in a theatrical antique" (Vincent Canby)

So, Rep. Donna Edwards wants to spend who knows how much money we don't have creating and protecting a park on the moon ("Md. Congresswoman proposes Apollo national park on the moon," July 10). Really? How are you going to accomplish that? And among the treasured artifacts requiring this protection are golf balls. Do we even know where they are? This is a stunning example of the intellect of our politicians. Lorraine Curtis, Baltimore

Dan Rodricks ' commentary "'Illegals' and the next economy" (May 15) is the epitome of hypocrisy. If his son or daughter, despite being stellar students, were rejected from college because of a lack of openings, as it happened to two of my friends' children, the tone of his commentary would have been different. If it touched Mr. Rodricks directly, he'd have a huge problem explaining his stand to his own children. What could be more biased than appealing to the touching drama of "Dr. Q" and what he has been able to do for himself?

It shimmers and glistens by day, reflecting the sun's brilliant rays. When night falls, beams of moonlight illuminate its crystal-like walls. The landmark 'Glass House' overlooking the Magothy River in Anne Arundel County is an architectural gem that literally sparkles. More than two decades after its construction, the house at 435 Ginn Lane in Pasadena has not lost its luster. But it has lost its owner, Leroy Merritt, the late developer, philanthropist and founder of the Merritt chain of athletic clubs.

From the opening electronic tickertape messages, relaying birthday greetings and instructions on audience behavior, to the deliriously multisensory finale, the Blue Man Group show at the Hippodrome Theatre packs a wallop. It's a big, loud, funny, silly, visually arresting production. There's no point in trying to classify what these performers, with their trademark blue faces and bald, earless heads, do onstage for the better part of 90 minutes. It's much easier to go with the flow — and duck down in your seat when those guys start roaming the aisles.

Overloaded by paperwork, testing, and the sheer numbers of kids before them, teachers lack the wherewithal to help disabled, difficult and disruptive students - especially those who come to school with problems rooted more in the world around them than in anything inside them. They must, for sheer self-preservation, move those kids out of their classrooms. Off they go into special ed, and, not infrequently, that's just the beginning of a long journey through program after program in school after school.

Suiting upWomen who want to be not one but two steps ahead of the fashion crowd may want to turn their attention to pants and, even more specifically, to pantsuits. "It's the quiet trend, the sleeper of the season," says Kal Ruttenstein, senior vice president of fashion direction for Bloomingdale's, of the return of both a look and a word that haven't been terribly au courant for years.Pants have not been in absentia, of course, but in recent seasons they've relinquished the fashion spotlight to short skirts, leggings and pants so narrow they almost resemble tights.

Amtrak trains had empty seats. Cab drivers at Baltimore's Penn Station were standing around wondering where everyone was. Traffic on local highways chugged along for much of the day. And through midafternoon, the lines never seemed more than 20-deep at Baltimore-Washington International Thurgood Marshall Airport. The lost-baggage offices were nearly empty, and the Starbucks had two more workers than customers. Yesterday was an oddly drama-free day for many travelers, who had braced for a wild, woolly Thanksgiving rush but found themselves ahead of schedule and far less harried than they expected.
