DENVER - James Eagan Holmes came from a well-tended San Diego enclave of two-story homes with red-tiled roofs, where neighbors recalled him as a clean-cut, studious young man of sparing words. Tall and dark-haired, he stared clear-eyed at the camera in a 2004 high school yearbook snapshot, wearing a white junior varsity soccer uniform - No. 16. The son of a nurse, Arlene, and a software company manager, Robert, James Holmes, 24, was a brilliant science scholar in college. The biggest mystery surrounding the doctoral student was why he would have pulled on a gas mask and shot dozens of people early Friday in a suburban Denver movie theater, as police allege.

With the unmitigated disaster of Four Rooms and the critical shelling that greeted From Dusk to Dawn, the hitherto white-hot Quentin Tarantino has been taking his lumps. Tarantino should thank the makers of Things to Do in Denver When You're Dead, for it is a black crime comedy that makes us keenly feel his absence. The movie and pop-culture influences in Tarantino's Reservoir Dogs and Pulp Fiction always make for lively arguments. Perhaps one day his influence on other young directors will be the subject of film-school graduate studies; Things to Do in Denver should furnish ample material.

The Montgomery County commissioners have released details of their Coopers & Lybrand study comparing the economic and demographic features of the four regions, including Philadelphia, where Lockheed Martin is considering scaling down or closing its AstroSpace divisions. The commissioners are hoping that the 42-page study trumpeting the area's assets will prevent the defense industry firm - the county's second largest employer - from shuttering its King of Prussia facility, thus sparing about 5,000 jobs.

To Antonio McDyess, the game meant nothing. He performed as if it meant everything. McDyess had 25 points, 10 rebounds, six blocks and four steals as the Nuggets, playing for the first time since the school shooting in suburban Denver, beat Golden State, 96-84, last night. The Nuggets postponed Tuesday's game against Portland because of the tragedy that resulted in 15 deaths. Denver players wore black patches on their jerseys to honor the victims. "I thought about it all week," McDyess said.

Green Bay Packers coach Mike Holmgren yesterday said he lost track of downs just before Denver scored the winning touchdown late in Sunday's Super Bowl. With 1:47 left in the game and the score tied, 24-24, the Broncos had a second-and-goal situation from the Green Bay 1 when Holmgren ordered his defense to let the Broncos score. At the time, the Packers had two timeouts remaining. Holmgren told the New York Daily News that he ordered the defense to yield because he believed it was first down, and was afraid Denver would be able to kill most of the clock if it kicked a field goal on fourth down.

ANOTHER high-paid athlete complaining about money. Hey, Sheldon, zip it and play. You signed the contract, and get a lot of money to play a sport. In case you didn't notice, people are losing jobs and houses at an alarming rate. Think they want to hear you whining about a couple of million more? Go complain somewhere else. Maybe they can trade you to Denver and get Brian Dawkins back. Frank Harte, Philadelphia
