The latest episode of "Parks and Recreation" did so many things to make me happy. Let's make a list. 1.) Acknowledged the rare and beautiful thing that is Ron and Leslie's deep friendship that has not a trace of romance to it, despite the fact that they are of opposite gender and both heterosexual. 2.) Let Lucy Liu be a badass in the most subtle and wonderful of ways. 3.) Unleashed Megan Mullally in full-crazy mode. 4.) Not only acknowledged that the meanness toward Jerry is that, but had the characters acknowledge it and correct their behavior.

A murdered screenwriter who narrates from the grave. An idealistic script reader who thinks she can work her way up in a studio on smarts alone. A producer who would push a baseball project if he could turn it into a musical for a female star. Those are just the "normal" characters in "Sunset Boulevard," the anchor of the opening-day bill for "You Be Cinema," the University of Baltimore's new film series at UB's Student Center Performing Arts Theater, 21 W. Mount Royal Ave. Billy Wilder's coruscating pop tragedy, streaked with horror and black comedy, is still the ultimate Hollywood movie, 60 years after its premiere.

The world of professional boxing has survived innumerable odd occurrences -- fixed fights, severed ears, long counts, fake identities, and yes, even a handful of female managers.The most famous (or, rather infamous) was "Leaping Lena" Levinsky, who managed and worked the corner for King Levinsky, a journeyman heavyweight in the 1930s, who lasted less than a round against Joe Louis.A pioneer for her sex in the sport, Lena was far more fearsome than her brother, once blackening the eye of an Illinois boxing commissioner who denied her a license.

Cleanup crews have recovered most of the free-floating oil that spilled into the Patuxent River and its tributaries April 7 from a Prince George's County power plant, but an oily sheen remains visible on the surface and congealed tar balls may surface with warmer weather. State and federal environmental officials said yesterday that they had recovered 24,000 of the 111,000 gallons of oil that spilled from a broken pipeline at the Potomac Electric Power Co. plant at Chalk Point. They also recovered an undetermined amount of oil in 975,000 pounds of absorbent material, containment booms, blankets, netting and protected clothing.

BEYOND THE ROCKS / / Milestone Film & Video / / $29.95 Rudolph Valentino and Gloria Swanson were two of the silent era's most celebrated stars, and the long-thought-lost Beyond the Rocks offers not only the unique chance to see them act together, but also the welcome opportunity to see them in roles besides those for which they've come to be known. Swanson is best remembered for her bravura performance in Billy Wilder's caustic 1950 love-letter to Hollywood, Sunset Boulevard. But that was her comeback film; as a silent-film star, she was celebrated for the opulent costume dramas she made for director Cecil B. DeMille, as well as for her on-screen fashion sense, which set trends throughout the world.

Amy Poehler earned my undying admiration for her work on Saturday Night Live during the 2008 election campaign - particularly the Sarah Palin rap she delivered from the Weekend Update desk, accompanied by that fabulous chorus line of dancing moose. Because of her work during that monumental election, I will go to my grave singing her praises. I need to say that because the preview of her new NBC series, Parks and Recreation, which premieres Thursday night at 8:30, is going to seem like a mixed one based on my reluctance to predict success for the show despite its several winning elements.

I've been pondering why alleged mega-swindler Bernard L. Madoff had such a smirk on his face as he left the Manhattan federal court last week. If you've seen the picture in the newspaper or seen the tape on television news, you know the expression to which I'm referring. The man who allegedly stole from the rich, but neglected to give to the poor - thus failing the Robin Hood test - has been nabbed. Why the arrogance from an accused master con man who is now wearing an electronic monitor ankle bracelet, under house arrest in his $7 million East 64th Street penthouse while waiting for trial on charges that he bilked legions of investors of something in the neighborhood of $50 billion?

2006 Swanson Pinot Grigio From: Napa Valley, Calif. Price: $21 Serve with: Salmon, swordfish There are a lot of bland, neutral pinot grigios on the market. This is not one of them. It's a full-bodied, creamy, intense white wine in a style reminiscent of the very best offerings from Italy. Its complex mix of flavors includes lemon, vanilla, apple and nuts. Certainly it ranks among the best pinot grigios from California.

The father of South Carroll graduate T.J. Swanson, The Sun's 2003 All-Metro Co-Offensive Player of the Year, said yesterday that his son will transfer from Mississippi State to Northern Colorado, where the quarterback will accept a full football scholarship. "T.J. ran the scout team at Mississippi State this fall and was named Player of the Week by [coach Sylvester] Croom, so they really like him, but they don't have any scholarships available," said Eric Swanson, adding that 1989 South Carroll graduate Warren Bell "was very instrumental" in contacting Northern Colorado.

Traditional final-game opponents in the regular season, Carroll County rivals South Carroll and Westminster were thrust together in last night's season opener because of scheduling wrinkles with the newly expanded Monocacy Valley Athletic League. At least one football team, however, looked in postseason form. Led by the rifle arm of senior quarterback T.J. Swanson, No. 15 South Carroll burst for three touchdowns in a 2:05 stretch midway through the first half in Sykesville and totaled more than 400 yards on offense to beat the Owls, 35-7.

Alison DuVal should have been planning her wedding this spring in Maryland, followed by an exciting life in Italy as the wife of E. Austin Koth, a sailor in the Navy who would have been stationed there. Instead, DuVal was sitting with her mother under a white tent at Dulaney Valley Memorial Gardens yesterday, remembering her fiance, a petty officer second class who died in July in Iraq when a bomb he was defusing exploded. The DuVals joined the families of 26 other soldiers, Marines and sailors who were honored yesterday at the Baltimore County cemetery.
