He roams the night in menacing military police garb in search of homosexuals. No, he's not cruising the bars of West Hollywood, the Castro or Chelsea. He's the head of Uganda'sspecial task force for the country's Anti-Homosexuality Bill. Funny, isn't it, the way the words "probe" and "penetrative" always seem to be on his lips? He insists his nation won't "bend over" for homosexuality and believes that the enforcement of the "penal code" is way too "soft. " Satire plays only a small part in Ntare Guma Mbaho Mwine's solo show "A Missionary Position," which is receiving its world premiere at REDCAT in an artfully staged production that runs through this weekend.

June 10, 2001 | PAULA L. WOODS, Paula L. Woods is the author of "Inner City Blues: A Charlotte Justice Novel."
There rages in some literary circles an unending debate about whether to include genre fiction in the literary canon. Should romances, science fiction or mysteries be considered as "serious" literature, or mere entertainments? Can a writer of such fiction be considered in the same breath as the masters of literature?

Did the devil make her do it, or was it her publicist? Normally, it's a compliment to say that a female singer performed like a woman possessed. But that may not be the case for singer Nicki Minaj's Linda Blair-like turn — minus the head-twisting and projectile vomiting — at the Grammy Awards, particularly among Roman Catholic viewers. In an over-the-top unveiling of her latest single, "Roman Holiday," toward the end of Sunday's telecast, Minaj acted out a prime-time exorcism on herself (or perhaps her alter ego, Roman Zolanski)

The Movie: "Picture Perfect" The Setup: An ambitious working girl, Kate (Jennifer Aniston) thinks she has to scheme for success in love and at work. The Look: A mid-level Manhattan advertising agency employee would never actually play dress-up quite like Kate does. By day: thigh-high hemlines on her flawlessly form-fitted sleeveless dresses and tons of dreamy Prada handbags and shoes. By night: sexy Italian bustier dresses with bead-encrusted handbags.

White House reporters, some of whom are experienced at making President Reagan see red, used the color to catch his eye--and attention--at his news conference Thursday night. Convinced that Reagan tends to call on reporters wearing red, First Lady's Nancy Reagan's favorite color, most members of the press corps were wearing something red. The tactic briefly seemed to work.

The elegant Thanksgiving table is set--crystal, china and silver are gleaming. The heirloom tablecloth, painstakingly starched and ironed, is decorated with a cornucopia of golden fruit. And down the hall, in the family room, next to the coffee table laden with chips and dip, the television set is blasting yet another half of football. Peg and Al are due at this annual neighborhood celebration in 15 minutes. But, as usual, they'll be late. They can't decide what to wear.

Orel Hershiser lasted 130 pitches Sunday afternoon against the San Diego Padres. That 130th pitch, which came in the ninth inning, was hardly climactic. It was not a hit that drove him from the game. It was not even ball four. That 130th pitch ran the count on the Padres' Kurt Stillwell to three balls and one strike. Reliever Jim Gott threw a fourth ball to walk Stillwell and load the bases. He got pinch-hitter Tim Teufel to bounce to second to preserve a 2-1 Dodger victory.

Seven steps were all it took to take some of the glamour out of Oscar night. "Be careful. We had a few incidents on these stairs," an official warned guests climbing up the short flight into the Governors Ball after the Academy Awards on Sunday night. Women in long trains and 4-inch heels stumbled to heed his warning even as the crowd stampeded toward the hall, desperate after a long night of nerves for a solid meal courtesy of Wolfgang Puck. Seth Rogen was among those who spied a little pit stop seafood buffet just outside the ballroom.

Now in its eighth year of trophy dispensing, the Costume Designers Guild (IATSE Local 892) has sought to carve out a refined stop on the awards season bandwagon; refined, that is, relative to the spectacles attempted by most of the season's award givers. Entering the Beverly Hilton lobby is like stepping into a Hollywood gala on Thorazine.

Enter Cinderellas for Life, an event started this year to help young women in foster care or who are economically disadvantaged like Erica, one of four sisters being raised by a single mother.

Ah, monumentally bad movies-- trashio in excelsis. Where would our screen memories be without them? And just in time for a big donation to that memory bank, we have "Siesta" (AMC 14, Century City), hot, awful artiness, with Ellen Barkin as a daredevil sky diver in the grips of an obsessive love. At the heart of any project so awesomely wrongheaded there has to be a big, pretentious conceit, and "Siesta's" screenplay is that, all right.

Marge Schott has tried a dog, which only seems to bring her luck, mostly bad. A possible suspension from baseball, after all, seems pretty bad. She tried a stuffed cow in a red dress, which brought nobody luck. Tuesday night, she tried a stuffed gorilla and the Reds beat the San Francisco Giants, 4-1, in Cincinnati. "We will have all kinds of stuff down here in the next week," Cincinnati outfielder Eric Davis said. Actually, the search for elusive luck began before the game.

My affair with radishes began only months ago after visiting a friend whose kitchen garden would make even Peter Rabbit's fastidious Mr. McGregor proud. From somewhere within the neat rows of lettuce, grand artichoke stalks and ambitious tomato vines, my friend pulled up a radish grown plump beneath the soil.
