For most people, spending time with a violent, Tabasco-guzzling Oregon anarchist, a teenage member of the Aryan Brotherhood, opera-loving lawyers whose dog fatally mauled an innocent woman and an eternally wired, drugged-out Hollywood agent would not be their idea of fun. For Evan Wright, though, encounters with such people are so powerful he has a hard time saying goodbye.

If you want to know what it was like to race in a roofless, windowless, aging Humvee through open desert, under intense fire from front and side, from Iraqis hidden behind berms and in huts that dot the landscape, from pieces of pipe in the road that can explode under your wheels and rip off your limbs -- in other words, if you want to know what the war in Iraq was like for those who led the invasion -- the facts are all laid out in Evan Wright's new book, "Generation Kill."

In late April 2007, Mike Penner published an article unlike any of the thousands he had written for the Los Angeles Times . It was brief, just 823 words, and placed without fanfare on the second page of the Sports section that had been his home for 23 years. Under the headline "Old Mike, new Christine," Penner explained that he would soon assume a female identity and byline, a decision that followed "a million tears and hundreds of hours of soul-wrenching therapy." It was "heartache and unbearable discomfort" to remain a man, he explained.

Instead of spending another Saturday watching cartoons, Ryan Frederick, 12, donned his Boy Scout uniform and spent the day leading a blind boy through tents filled with wild animals. The stuffed and mounted kind. "It's kind of fun leading," said Ryan, who lives in Brea. "I thought it would be kind of hard and boring; instead it's easy and fun."

Mamma Mia! Universal, $29.98/$34.98; Blu-ray, $39.98 On stage, "Mamma Mia!" is pure, kitschy entertainment, stringing together ABBA songs behind a loose plot about a bride-to-be and the three men who might be her father. On film, the shaky connection between the story and the music proves more distracting, and the lack of professional singers and dancers is a hindrance, despite an exuberant performance by Meryl Streep as the young woman's mother.

Baltimore writer-producers David Simon and Ed Burns will shift their TV storytelling focus this summer from the failed war on drugs in Baltimore to the American invasion of Iraq -- just as they are finishing the final season of HBO's acclaimed drama "The Wire." HBO will begin production in June on "Generation Kill," a seven-hour miniseries based on an award-winning book by Evan Wright about the early days of the war in Iraq. The work originally appeared in a series in Rolling Stone magazine.
