"The Caveman's Valentine" is about a homeless man who cracks a murder case - not just any homeless man, and not just any murder case. Romulus Ledbetter, played by Samuel L. Jackson, elects to live in a cave in New York City's Inwood Park. The response he evokes isn't, "Oh, my God, that man is me!" - which is what you would expect from a heartfelt exploration of homelessness - but "Oh, my God, that man is greater than I could ever be!" Romulus is a Juilliard-trained pianist who experienced a crack-up a la "Shine" that left him paranoid and possessed of scattered, blazing insights.

Couples in our community celebrate Valentine's Day in as many ways as designers make pajamas. Some use glamour, some schmaltz to create romantic memories. Ellicott City resident Bev Wilhide recalls working in the flower shop she and her husband Lee ran on Cooks Lane in Ellicott City more than 10 years ago. It was the day after Valentine's Day -- florists are busy on the day itself. A limousine pulled up in front of the shop. "A guy came into the shop and explained [the limousine] was for me," Bev said.

From Anita Hill's accusations of harassment by Supreme Court nominee Clarence Thomas to Gennifer Flowers' claim of ** an illicit affair with presidential candidate Bill Clinton, from the date rape trial of William Kennedy Smith (acquitted) to that of Mike Tyson (convicted), it has been a rough year for relations between the sexes. On Valentine's Day, it is fair to ask: Can men and women get along?That is a far different question from the old male cry of "What do women want?" The question has usually been asked with the heavy implication that no one could ever provide a rational or lasting answer -- mostly because the answer would have to come from women who, from the male point of view, were often irrational and fickle.

High on love but low on cash? Swooning couples shouldn't have to shell out hundreds of dollars on Valentine's Day. And with the recession in full swing, who can afford to splurge on champagne and chocolate, anyway? There is a world of options available, from dancing to Frank Sinatra's hits in front of a live orchestra to sipping red wine over spaghetti at a Hampden pasta joint. Leave the roses on the shelf, and try one of these five Valentine's Day dates instead. Each one has its own theme, multiple stops and an alternative option, in case something falls through or an event sells out. It's always good to have a backup plan, after all. But the best part is: Every date on this list costs less than $50. If you want to celebrate Valentine's Day on a tight budget, here's how to do it. Dance the night away The Plan: : In the beginning of the year, a well-known dance promoter started renting out the building that used to house Gardel's Supper Club (29 S. Front St.)

CONTINUING a year-old tradition of giving questionable advice about what to feed your lover on Valentine's Day, I suggest the artichoke. That prickly green thing that looks like it is a cousin of the cactus.Every time I cook artichokes at our house, the windows steam up. That is mainly because the best way to cook these spiky plants is to steam them in a pot of lemon juice and water, a process that fills the kitchen with a pleasant aroma and lots of water vapor.The suggestion that artichokes are sexy will probably elicit two reactions from readers, one being derisive laughter, the other being faint interest.

The groundhog must not have only seen his shadow a week ago, he must have seen the ghost of winter present.How can I think romantic thoughts about my beloved when I'm skating down the driveway? My face looks like Rudolph the Red-Nosed Reindeer's, I sound like Burl Ives, and I'm so bundled in sweaters I'm mistaken for the Pillsbury Dough Girl.So naturally, all the Valentine's cards show pictures of underdressed Cupids cavorting in a spring landscape. Far from taking the romantic hint, I want to tell him to put his coat on.Here I am, a curmudgeon on Valentine's Day. I feel like Scrooge at Christmas.

KARACHI, Pakistan--With images of bearded men forcing bombs upon brainwashed youths and delirious women shouting crazy things at their trials, it is hard to imagine that Pakistan is a country that celebrates a largely Western holiday such as Valentine's Day. In fact, the holiday is probably as big an event in Pakistan as it is in the United States. In a society that does not condone premarital relationships, let alone the expression of affection among these couples, it is interesting to see how Valentine's Day has made its way into Pakistani society.

Holly Atwood, 18, chose a sequined, strapless wedding gown and train with a shoulder-length veil for her wedding to Steven Joseph, 21. He wore a tuxedo with a red vest and tie, a nod to Valentine's Day. She was so nervous she left her heels in the car and walked into the Baltimore County Courthouse in satin slippers. Court Clerk Julie Ensor officiated at the brief civil ceremony and offered the Harford County couple best wishes. Theirs was among the last of nearly 30 weddings there on Valentine's Day, the most love-infused day of the year and the busiest wedding date at many area courthouses.
