In all the death, the wounding and the fear, a tarot card stands as one of the few clues into the mind and motivations of the sniper whose bullets have left seven dead and two severely injured. Yet who knows what, if any, secrets it will reveal? Stuart R. Kaplan, chairman and founder of U.S. Games Systems, the world's No. 1 producer of tarot cards, said yesterday that if the card came from one of his company's decks, it would be possible to sift through individual mail-order buyers in Maryland or Virginia, as well as local retail outlets where that deck was sold.

"They have never caught me, and they never will. They have never seen me, for I am invisible, even as the ether which surrounds your earth. I am not a human being, but a spirit and fell demon from hottest Hell. I am what you Orleanians call The Axeman. " --The Axeman "The Axeman Cometh" gave us the most conventional hour of storytelling so far in this "American Horror Story" season, and that's a very good thing. The episode gave us a rich, dastardly new character and added depth to the season's biggest storyline, the war between Fiona and Marie.

VENICE BEACH, Calif. -- On this steamy afternoon, Venice is like a city with a hangover.A sand sculptor grouses at tourists who photograph his work without paying him. The big draw on the boardwalk -- the chain saw juggler -- has vanished. Rumor has it he's moonlighting down the street as Barney the dinosaur. Huba Huba, a veteran performer of the bizarre, absent-mindedly trudges barefoot across broken glass.Venice Beach -- the heart of let-it-all-hang-out California -- is changing. The hippies are older, the cops tougher and the boardwalk is cracking, leading some to wonder: Has this seedy playground passed its prime?

TRYSTANCRAFT.COM/MARTHA What's the point? -- Trystan L. Bass' site, called Gothic Martha Stewart, basically takes the quality and intricacy of Martha-Stewart-type decorating projects and changes the colors to ones more suited to a gothic aesthetic (think black, burgundy and purple). But don't doubt - these are thought-out ideas, even if Martha wouldn't decorate her home quite like this. Check out the table decoupaged with tarot cards and the instructions for creating a draped headboard or dressing table.

The credit sequence of "Caught Up," in which Bokeen Woodbine aims his piece right at the camera while his sexy co-star, Cynda Williams, tosses tarot cards, seems to promise a Thug Life James Bond; what we get instead is a John Doe.What first-time director Darin Scott seemed to have in mind was a hip-hop remix of a film noir. But the movie is undone by its mediocre script, tired characters and unconvincing performances.Everyone overacts, including Woodbine, who has given naturalistic, relaxed performances in his previous films ("Panther," "Jason's Lyric")

MARIA AND I became instant friends. I saw a subject for a column, and she saw a summer sucker. Or maybe she just saw an older woman trying to look young in shorts and top from the GAP who might have some bucks on her.I was trying to escape the heat of the day by getting off the beach, so I was wandering around Rehoboth Beach, Del., looking for an air-conditioned stop. A pizza or salt water taffy place, even a video arcade -- anything that offered cold air.I saw a sign, ''Readings by Maria.

SHADY SIDE -- To some people, the word parapsychology might conjure up images of Ouija boards, tarot cards and gaunt-eyed psychics bending forks with mind power.But to the Rev. William Theodore Swager and his wife, Lois, founders of the Spiritual Research and Development Institute in Shady Side, it's much more serious than that."Psychic phenomenon have a power that can swallow you up. . . . When you start telling your unconscious you're willing to listen, it might send you information to shake you out of your shoes," he said.

The less Steven Seagal has on his mind, the better. When he pours on the pseudo-social-consciousness, the results, such as his un-eye-opening expose of ecological waste, "On Deadly Ground," are dreadful. But when he cuts the garbage and opens up a six-pack of keister-kicking, as in the current "Exit Wounds," the results are mindless, empty and fairly entertaining. As suggested by the title (ideas for sequels: "Head Injuries," "Mangled Limbs"), this is straight-ahead, streamlined mayhem.

Synchronicity in Pikesville is a unique place. For starters, it sells couture clothing and accessories. We're talking Chanel, Vera Wang, Prada, Fendi, Gucci, Versace, Gianfranco Ferre -- the kind of clothing we haven't seen much of in these parts, unless you count the pages of Vanity Fair. Owner Karen Mazer discounts the majority of her stock by at least 50 percent. There are clothes for men and children too. And vintage couture for the hipster set. And wait, there's more. Like sizes that range from 0 to 26 and a comfy waiting area with toys, computers, leather recliners and a flat-screen TV for non-shoppers.
