AaliyahOne In a Million (Blackground/Atlantic 92715)Some singers are blessed with voices so beautiful that, as the saying goes, they'd sound good just reading the newspaper. Most, though, need strong material to make the most of their gifts, as Aaliyah inadvertently proves on her sophomore release, "One in a Million." Although there's a lot to be said for the silken tone and supple phrasing she pulls from her girlish alto, the songs assembled here rarely give her a chance to show off those strengths.

When Zacarias Moussaoui switched his story and declared in court that he was supposed to have piloted a fifth plane on 9/11 and crashed it into the White House, he wasn't doing his legal defense any good and he may not have been telling the truth. (A middling amount of evidence suggests that al-Qaida had a different role planned for him before his arrest in August 2001.) But what was he up to? He may have been trying to confound his captors, perhaps throw them off the scent of something else.

After 12 years, Kyle Petty thinks he has finally positioned himself to have a season like Richard Petty used to have."With this team, I expect to win races and position myself to win a championship," said Kyle, son of the seven-time Winston Cup champion. "We're capable of doing that and doing that consistently."Kyle Petty won the first time he ever raced at Daytona International Speedway. It was a mixed blessing, as he drove his first car to an ARCA victory in one of the Daytona 500 preliminary races in 1979.

ATHENS - Although the United States has already hit its projected target of 100 Olympic medals, the color scheme no longer reflects world domination. The U.S. gold-medal count stands at only 34, pending today's results. It is down from 40 gold in Sydney in 2000 and 44 gold in Atlanta in 1996, and may reflect the worst gold total since 1976, when the United States won 34 gold in Montreal. Americans won 97 overall medals in Sydney in two fewer Olympic events, and 101 in Atlanta in 1996.

A female co-worker sat down in my office, a look of distaste on her face, and said: 'Toenails? How disgusting. Couldn't you find something less offensive and more relevant to write about?'Which just shows how little some media people know about America, its people, their problems, needs, hopes and dreams.I reached under the desk and brought out a big cardboard crate, filled with letters."Read them," I said."What are they about?" she said."Toenails. They are all from people pleading to know where they can buy that amazing clipper."

CORDOVA - On his family's 3,000-acre farm near Easton, Bobby Hutchison has been monitoring an office computer every 15 minutes for updates on Chicago commodities markets. But lately, it seems he ought to be checking the cost of diesel fuel and fertilizer nearly as often. The Hutchisons and other Eastern Shore farmers have been deciding how much land to devote to corn - a crop that is commanding $6 a bushel, triple the price it fetched just a couple years ago. On the flip side, though, is the soaring price of diesel fuel that keeps a fleet of tractors and combines rumbling.

If you're looking for Sandy Watters this weekend, she's in Los Angeles, personally invited by Baltimore comedian Mo'Nique to attend tomorrow night's premiere of the star's new movie Phat Girlz. The invitation and the Hollywood trip alone might have been thrilling enough for Watters, but this local lady is starry-eyed for another reason. Watters is actually in the new movie, which comes out April 7. Her name is right there in the credits, but, truth be told, she isn't really acting. Watters is just doing on film what she does best in real life.
