James Maslow enters wearing a tuxedo with no shirt, because he's no dummy and neither is Peta Murgatroyd. Mark Ballas enters with his right arm in a sling - wonder what that means for his dance with Candace Cameron Bure tonight? Candace (with a ridiculous topknot), still, after this many weeks of competition, looks terrified.  Head judge Len Goodman is trying to tell host Tom Bergeron what's going to happen tonight, but the audience is so loud I have no idea what was said. Oh, good, looks like there's no guest judge tonight.

If the idea of Yasser Arafat as a "peace" laureate makes you queasy, wait till next year: Nobels for Gerry Adams and Ian Paisley?Protestant para-military forces have joined the Irish Republican Army in a cease-fire in Northern Ireland. The tango of death is suspended. Even in Northern Ireland, it takes two to tango. Murder evoked reprisal murder, and now truce begets truce. It took so long because for a quarter-century both tribes thought they could win. Neither was interested in peace when victory seemed possible.

When Lt. Gov. Anthony Brown brought up a 2003 decision by the Court of Appeals to reprimand Douglas F. Gansler for his conduct as a prosecutor during Wednesday night's Democratic gubernatorial debate, Brown's chief rival in the campaign had a bold answer. Gansler, now attorney general, said he sees the rebuke as "a badge of honor" because he had spoken out against a Montgomery County judge who told an 11-year-old sexual assault victim that she shared the blame because "it takes two to tango.

MIAMI BEACH - You'd never know it to look at the work - often quiet, introverted, built on small moments. But Robert Duvall is an actor ruled by his passions. It doesn't reveal itself in every job. He's still a sucker for anything with a horse. He's related to Robert E. Lee, so he ignored doubts he had about playing Lee in the flop Gods and Generals. For every Tender Mercies, combining his love of country music with his favorite screenwriter, Horton Foote, Duvall will have to play a cop (Falling Down)

BUENOS AIRES, ARGENTINA There's something about this place. Maybe it's the tango. Those of you who have witnessed the real thing know tango -- when done right -- is not a dance for sissies. It is aggressive, moody, seductive, sometimes beautiful and maybe a little dangerous. Like Buenos Aires. So ... is it a cliche to compare Buenos Aires to the tango? Maybe, but it was either that or Evita. Which brings me to the subject of steakhouses -- but first, the obligatory travel story transition paragraphs: Cool place to visit, Buenos Aires.

Terri Stafford used to take Lulu, her border collie mix, to medical facilities as part of a Baltimore-based volunteer program that enabled her to share her beloved pet's affection with others in need of it. "We did that for several years until Lulu got too sick" with cancer, said Stafford, a retired registered nurse who lives in Baltimore County. "Toward the end, when Lulu wasn't feeling well, she spent a lot of time hiding in the closet. But I'd say, 'Lulu, let's go visiting.' And she'd come running out and jump in the car. She loved it. "I also used to enjoy the way people would light up when I would bring Lulu to visit them," Stafford said.

Once again, The Sun is lambasting Republicans for using the debt ceiling to attempt to reduce government spending ("Another cliff ahead?" Jan. 4). Yet you yourself suggest what's needed to reduce the deficit: "Stop spending so much money. " Great idea. Now please tell us what proposals have been put forth by President Barack Obama and Congressional Democrats to reduce spending and reform entitlement programs? Even The Sun seems to doubt the Democrats' resolve to "face up to the challenges facing popular programs like Medicare and Social Security.

Wood floors. Dark-red walls. Sixteen-foot ceilings. Metal pillars. A grand iron staircase. When you walk into Gardel's Argentinian Supper Club you'll want to stand a bit straighter and stare -- mouth open -- at the stunning interior. And most likely, you'll want to dance. Gardel's, which is in the old City Life Museum a few blocks north of Little Italy, does serve a full dinner and has an inviting wooden bar. But it is meant to be a place to strut to Latin tunes on the dance floor. For the not-so-smooth clientele, there are free tango lessons on Sundays at 3 p.m. The grand opening is planned for the end of September, but the club is open now for dinner and dancing.

IT TAKES two to tango, according to a Montgomery County Circuit Court judge. Even if one of the partners is an 11-year-old girl and that tango involves smoking, alcohol consumption and oral sex. That's not a social dance; it's statutory rape and molestation. Unfortunately, Judge Durke G. Thompson decided to blame the young victim instead of putting responsibility where it belonged: with the 23-year-old man who used an Internet chat room to meet and then have illegal sex with a child. If the judge had discovered his own young child having sex in her room with an adult at 3 a.m., would he point a finger at the girl or the perpetrator?
