Don's on the mend. Sort of. It was an admittedly slow yet steady start to the new season. That's how it should be with recovery. There was no jumping into massive transformations or profound moments of clarity. It was more of a catch-up to see how the dust has settled - or kicked up - in the past two months (in "Mad Men" time, of course). Are Don and Megan still together? Have SC&P rehired Don? Are Peggy and Joan this close to starting their firm to prove those chauvinists wrong?

Possession of small amounts of marijuana will no longer be a crime in Maryland under a law passed Monday and sent to Gov. Martin O'Malley for his expected signature. Adults caught with less than 10 grams of pot will get a citation that will be treated like traffic ticket and pay a fine, but they could no longer be sent to jail. O'Malley said he plans to sign the law, a reversal from views he held as he gained prominence as Baltimore's tough-on-crime mayor. "As a young prosecutor, I once thought that decriminalizing the possession of marijuana might undermine the public will necessary to combat drug violence and improve public safety," O'Malley said in a statement.

Women's clothing retailer Coldwater Creek Inc. on Friday filed for Chapter 11 bankruptcy after failing to find a buyer said it plans to close its stores by early summer. Coldwater Creek joins other retailers to seek protection from creditors in recent months as consumers keep a lid on spending. The company said it plans to wind down its operations over the coming months and begin going-out-of-business sales in early May, before the traditionally busy Mother's Day weekend. Coldwater Creek, which has 365 stores and employs about 6,000 people, has five stores in Maryland.

A U.S. Naval Academy midshipman died Saturday after slipping into a coma following a skateboarding injury, the third midshipman to expire due to injury in two months. Hans Loewen, 20, of Hampstead, N.C., was camping at Assateague State Park with other midshipmen when he was injured, Naval Academy officials said. He was taken to the Maryland Shock Trauma Center in Baltimore, but he did not wake from his coma. "My wife, Barbara, and I join the Brigade, staff and faculty in mourning the loss of Midshipman Hans Loewen," Naval Academy Superintendent Vice Adm. Michael Miller said in a statement.

Michael Hirschbeck, the 27-year-old son of major league baseball umpire John Hirschbeck, died Tuesday, WFMJ in Youngstown, Ohio, reported. Michael Hirschbeck had adrenoleukodystrophy, an inherited condition that affects the nervous system. John Hirschbeck's oldest son, John, was 8 years old when he died in 1993 of the rare degenerative disease. The Poland, Ohio, family's struggle with ALD was told in a series of 1996 articles in The Sun that won a Pulitzer Prize. Lisa Pollak's story, "The Umpire's Sons," recounted a family tragedy that had become a footnote in the feverish media coverage after Orioles second baseman Roberto Alomar spat on Hirschbeck after a controversial call in 1996.

The relationship between Michael Oher and Sean Tuohy Jr. has - like Tuohy himself - grown dramatically in the 10 years since Oher was brought by Tuohy's family into their home in the leafy suburbs of Memphis. If those early years became the genesis of a best-selling book and a hit movie that documented Oher's transformation into a college football star at Mississippi and the No. 1 pick of the Ravens in 2009, this year takes the brothers' relationship to another place. In Baltimore, call it The Other Side.

A full lunar eclipse will occur early Tuesday morning, darkening the full moon and possibly tinting it a reddish hue that causes some to call it a "Blood Moon". For nearly an hour and a half, the moon will be dimmed and possibly appearing a copper color because of sunlight bent by the atmosphere. The total eclipse begins around 3 a.m. and ends around 4:30 a.m., with the moon at its dimmest at 3:46 a.m. The eclipse will be visible across the Americas as well as throughout the Pacific.

It's just not safe to get married in Westeros these days. Ever since he ordered the beheading of the heroic Ned Stark in the first season of “Game of Thrones,” viewers have been patiently waiting for the insufferable boy-king Joffrey to die. (Preferably in as painful a manner as possible.)  Sunday night, they got their wish. Episode two of Season 4,“The Lion and the Rose,” written by George R.R. Martin himself (hallowed be his name), ends with the despicable teenage tyrant's poisoned face turning blue as blood drips from his mouth.

I f you watch Spike TV's "Bar Rescue"you know how hard Jon Taffer's job is. Recruited by drinkeries, Taffer not only revamps bars' design, menus and business practices, but deals with bullheaded owners. He's already had to fix a pirate bar (!) in Silver Spring (!!) for the premiere of Season 2 last week. But for this Sunday's episode (9 p.m.), he attempts to fix Fells Point's J.A. Murphy's, which became Murphy's Law ... and then closed. What went down? We decided to awkwardly ask Taffer.

I spent most of this week thinking about what I wanted to say in this column. But then I realized I honestly couldn't say anything better than what the Ultimate Warrior said in his final appearance on WWE Raw on Monday, just 24 hours before his death. For those who didn't see the show, or don't remember the words, here's what he said: “No WWE talent becomes a legend on their own. Every man's heart one day beats its final beat, his lungs breathe their final breath. And if what that man did in his life makes the blood pulse through the body of others, and makes them bleed deeper, than something larger than life, then his essence, his spirit, will be immortalized by the storytellers, by the loyalty, by the memory of those who honor him and make the running the man did live forever.

Claddagh Pub and Restaurant, the popular Canton favorite, is opening a new location near Ocean City just in time for summer. Paul Cuda, Claddagh's general manager, says if construction permits, the bar hopes to open its second outlet in May at 1106 Coastal Highway in Fenwick Island. Claddagh, the self-proclaimed original soccer pub of Baltimore, is known as one of the city's best bars for cheap beer. Behind its motto of  “friendship, loyalty and love,” the Irish pub keeps its culture alive with homemade Irish food, viewings of Ireland's soccer matches and live music.

Angelo's pizza shop has closed in Hampden. On Thursday, the longtime operators of the pizza shop were evicted by the building's owners, 36 Keswick LLC. "It's just been a nightmare," said Angelo Pizza, who purchased the pizza business from his mother in 1988. "Things just started getting good in the last six months. " Angelo's had closed once before, back in May 2011, but Pizza was able to reopen in just over a month after getting a loan from a regular customer. This time, Pizza said, it looks like the end of Angelo's.

The House of Delegates voted Friday to raise Maryland's minimum wage to $10.10 an hour over the next three years, setting up a potential fight over whether to guarantee future increases by tying the rate to inflation. Delegates voted 89-46 for the increase after an hourlong debate — the first time the House has approved raising the base pay since 2006. Supporters argued that the wealthiest state in the nation could afford to boost the living standards of its poorest workers, while opponents warned that the move would hurt small businesses and cost jobs among the people that the legislation is meant to help.
