As far as we're concerned, the Nail Polish Thing has always been just like the Pantyhose Thing - a real love/hate relationship. Generations have come and gone, and still many of the manufacturers of these two products don't Get It. Real Women need value-priced sheer pantyhose with a waistband that stays above the waist and a crotch that stays directly below ours, not hovering at knee level. They also need nail care products that look good but don't take all year to dry - products that enable one to do something completely frivolous like, oh, cook dinner, while you wait.

With his new "Dangerous" LP perched atop Billboard's R&B album chart, Michael Jackson tries to reclaim the street, the soul brothers and sisters who were down wit' him when he was bad. But it's not where you're from, it's where you're at. And Michael doesn't even know if he's black or white anymore. The latest releases by R&B heavies Keith Sweat, Jody Watley and Lisa Stansfield show just how far out of touch Michael is with the Boyz and Girlz in the Hood. They represent different shades of contemporary soul that separate the hip from the hype.

It will be strange not to have Samuel S. Salerno around the hallways of the Horsham Township building, acknowledges Michael J. McGee, the township manager. "Sam's absence will definitely be felt," he said. On June 19, Salerno retired as township fire marshal, ending a 36-year career in the position. He began working in the township fire department in 1948 and took over as fire marshal in 1956. At the age of 80, Salerno decided to recuperate from a recent heart attack and do something he has rarely done: rest.

Laura Izibor returned to World Cafe Live on Tuesday night - on the main stage downstairs this time - to deliver an invigorating performance full of soul, with an international twist. Having been compared with Alicia Keys and opened shows for John Legend, the Roots and Aretha Franklin, the Irish-born Izibor spun tunes of unrequited, misplaced, and adoring love into a 13-song performance full of piano-built feel-good music, slow melodies, and lush coos. Letting the audience know that "all my songs are stories," Izibor sang hits from her pop-friendly June debut Let the Truth Be Told (currently No. 21 on Billboard's R&B/Hop-Hop chart)

IN YOUR CLASSIC Hollywood romcom, the meant-for-each-other couple meets, fights through a few obstacles and ends up together. There the movie ends. Tellingly, we never see them actually living together, because nothing intrudes on gossamer fantasies of romantic destiny like the grungy details of real life. And nothing tests real love like the imperfections of your "perfect" mate. "I think love and disgust are a lot closer than people think," Zoe Kazan, the writer and star of "Ruby Sparks" who makes that idea one of the movie's themes, said with a laugh.

Adapted from a recent online discussion. Question: A disagreement broke out Friday about your position on what the two-year mark in a relationship means. Would you mind clarifying? Some said you believe that after two years, love dies due to repetition and monotony, and others said that's nothing like what you said. Answer: The butterflies of initial attraction rarely survive past the two-year mark of a relationship. Those butterflies can cover up areas of fundamental incompatibility.

Q. My girlfriend and I have been going out for five years and are talking about marriage. I don't know if I can trust her because a year and a half ago she cheated and then broke it off with me.

Now we've been together for six months and I don't feel like I can relax and trust and grow again with her. Should I wait? A. You already know that this relationship is not held together by maturity, commitment and stability.

We've been wandering around the dial, checking out the latest videos. Here's a recap. Great White, "Once Bitten, Twice Shy" - Heavy metal videos are pretty predictable. The format works, and if it ain't broke, why fix it? You take the band members, put them in a large open space, let them perform the song and make sure there are plenty of scantily dressed females around to provide filler. That's it. Great White varies little from the formula. The large space is a warehouse, the conceit is that the band is rehearsing while roadies load up the bus, and scantily clad groupies drape themselves over the roadcases.

Olivier's erotic letters "I woke raging with desire for you," writes the greatest Shakespearean actor of the 20th Century in a scorching, randy, salacious letter to his lover Vivien Leigh . "Oh dear God how I did want you. " Laurence Olivier 's missive is part of a cache of 200 previously unpublished letters between the two lovers that is to be made public. Explicit, anatomical, and yet somehow also poetic, most of the letters, held in the Victoria and Albert Museum archive, can't be printed here.

Q: I am an extremely happily married woman. I come from a large, loving family. My husband says he was raised by wolves: a workaholic father and a disinterested, abusive mother and, later, a domineering stepmother. He has told me he never knew what real love was until he met me. The problem is his sister, who does not want to be a part of our lives. My children insist I invite her to family functions but she always refuses. I invited her to my daughter's high school graduation party at my daughter's request.

Mike Mattei claims that he has construction dust in his DNA, that despite an intellectual streak, his hands have always won the workday from his cerebrum. "My grandfather came from Italy as a stonemason," Mattei said, taking a slight break from his work renovating a former bank near Independence Hall into luxury condos. "He worked for years on the old Manayunk railroad bridge, a beautiful piece of work. He did brick and concrete work his whole life, and then my father did trade work, too. " Mattei's family, though, wanted to point him in a different direction.

They know football in its brutal, exhilarating beauty - the colliding bodies, the pain, the violence, the intensity, the weariness. You'd think they would find a football video game a little dull. They don't. Donovan McNabb and Keith Adams of the Eagles. Marcus Knight of the Soul. Antwon Burton, Mike Holley and Rodney Wormley of Temple. They all play video games. Specifically, they play Madden football. Like the rest of the video-game universe, they're buzzing about the iconic game's latest incarnation, Madden NFL 06 ($49.

As if love weren't confusing enough, this year we're faced not only with the usual Valentine's Day hype but also with the ultimate in anti-romance, shows like The Bachelorette, Joe Millionaire, and Are You Hot? This is the "reality" of true love in 2003? Ten-pound chocolates, diamonds-and-thigh-highs-are-forever ads, and a bunch of brain-dead, money-grubbing exhibitionists competing to win America's heart? Impossible. Surely we long for something else. Deep down we must know that Valentine's Day is a crock, and Joe Millionaire is a happy idiot.

Marian Cross sat on the porch of a sturdy white house on a quiet street in Blackwood, her eyes misty and far-away. "What a sad story," she said. "Art Rutecki loved his wife and then he loved me, but he loved that farm more than both of us. " To thousands of Gloucester County Catholic parents eager to send their children to a nearby, state-of-the-art parochial high school, the Diocese of Camden's application to place the 1,600-student building on a swath of farmland in Deptford is a step in the right direction.
