Everything about The Assassination of Jesse James by the Coward Robert Ford is longer than it needs to be. Its title, for one thing. Its duration - two hours and 40 minutes! - for another. But mostly its excruciatingly deliberate pace makes you wonder if Andrew Dominik's film, as spare as it is self-important, intentionally unfolds in narrative slow-mo. On the plus side, Brad Pitt's turn as the fastest (and most paranoid) gun in the West and that of Casey Affleck, as James' starstruck fan and killer, are sharp.

IN HOLLYWOOD, Sandra Bullock has long been considered a shrewd businesswoman, well-suited to managing her career and her fortune. It should therefore come as no surprise that she and Jesse James have a prenup. RadarOnline.com says it specifically states that he gets no money in a divorce if he cheats during their marriage. Since Jesse reportedly admitted to Sandra to cheating with seven women and went to sex-addiction rehab to deal with his philandering, it should not take a team of lawyers to bust him. But does she get a refund?

Director Brenna Geffers showed a bit of boldness when casting only women in EgoPo Classic Theatre's The Assassination of Jesse James . Running into traffic is also bold, though not without consequence. Geffers' script consists of poems, songs, text found in dime novels, and newspaper accounts about the legendary outlaw. The play, itself a collage of direct-address narrative, dramatization and song, chronicles James' transition from guerrilla fighter slaughtering Union forces to stagecoach-robbing bandit.

WHEN NEWS BEGAN to flow like sewage that Sandra Bullock's husband, Jesse James, was a dog, the first response from so many people (at least on Facebook) was, "I hope it's not true" or "I thought he was different. " Well, it is and he's not. James yesterday said he was sorry for the pain and embarrassment he's caused Sandra and his three children from previous relationships. He told People magazine in a statement yesterday that he exhibited "poor judgment" and "I deserve everything bad that is coming my way. " Huh?

The story of Jesse James is an evergreen, retrimmed for every generation. The Confederate bushwhacker-turned-bank-robber-turned-Robin Hood has been framed as antihero (Jesse James, starring Tyrone Power), brave soldier (Audie Murphy in Kansas Raiders), rebel and rivalrous sibling (James Keach in The Long Riders), and folk hero and antigovernment activist (Robert Duvall in The Great Northfield Minnesota Raid). In his latest reincarnation, with Colin Farrell as the studly sharpshooter in American Outlaws, juicy Jesse is a male centerfold, mama's boy and Confederate idealist coerced into bank robbery by a conspiracy of Northern real estate speculators, railroad barons, and hired guns.

THE WORLD is in crisis. Greece is in a financial meltdown. Jamaica is under military rule. Jesse James cheated on Sandra Bullock. The U.S. is overspending. We owe China trillions. North Korea sank a South Korean warship. North Korea will be isolated and asking China for help. China is out for itself, and I don't know why the U.S. got involved with them. Secret plans implemented by Gen. Petraeus say that special-operations troops can be sent to the Middle East, Central Asia and the Horn of Africa, involving Iran, Saudi Arabia, Somalia and other countries that are against us. These documents should have remained secret.

There was a moment last month, after the premiere of The Assassination of Jesse James by the Coward Robert Ford at the Toronto International Film Festival, when Brad Pitt and Angelina Jolie looked like they were going to be swallowed by the crowd. Literally. Their getaway limo was ringed by squawking, bawling fans, faces pressed to the car window, flashbulbs flaring, cell-phone cameras going crazy, the streets jammed, traffic at a standstill. It was like something out of, well, a movie.

We're going to get a look at "the dirty little coward" who shot Jesse James in NBC's Sunday night movie (Channel 3 at 9), "The Last Days of Frank and Jesse James. " But do we really need another film about the notorious outlaws of the 1800s? Two famed country stars, Kris Kristofferson and Johnny Cash, co-star as Jesse and Frank, respectively. What's amusing about this casting is that both actors have poker faces - you can't tell what either one is feeling or thinking. The story begins with a young kid running out of a house shouting, "I just killed Jesse James!"

DNA testing has rewritten the history of crime-fighting. With current techniques, it's possible for an individual person to be differentiated from all the people who have ever lived, just by using DNA from a single hair root. DNA now plays a critical role in criminal investigations; even long-cold cases have finally been solved after years with no leads or viable suspects. And thanks to the marvels of DNA testing, 65 people who were wrongly convicted have been freed in the United States - including some notorious death-row cases.
