Police CommissionerFrederick H. Bealefeld III, appearing on WBAL's "The C4 Show," said the attack on a 31-year-old white man from Arlington, Va., appears to be nothing beyond "drunken opportunistic criminality.

JOHANNESBURG, South Africa - Helen Suzman still gets hate mail. These days it comes mainly from black South Africans, not white defenders of the racist apartheid regime against which she waged a determined and often lonely battle during 36 years in Parliament. "You were just a spy of the Jews," begins the latest letter, an unsigned note that arrived this week alleging Jewish exploitation of the country's majority black population. Suzman, who is sharp of mind and tongue at 87, tossed the letter on a table at her home north of Johannesburg and said such nastiness did not bother her. "I don't frighten easily," she said.

My oven has convection-roast and convection-bake settings. I understand convection is a heat-circulating fan, but the roast vs. baking part confuses me. What difference does it make to the oven if I leave the lid off a meat pan? In food language, roast and bake really aren't different. Both are done in an open pan, usually in an oven. We refer to cooking meats and vegetables in an open pan as roasting, while cakes, cookies and pies are baked. But convection, which uses fans to circulate air, is a different beast.

Why is the nation more bitterly divided today than it's been in 80 years? Why is there more anger, vituperation and political polarization now than even during Joe McCarthy's anti-communist witch hunts of the 1950s, the tempestuous struggle for civil rights in the 1960s, the divisive Vietnam War, or the Watergate scandal? If anything, you'd think this would be an era of relative calm. The Soviet Union has disappeared and the Cold War is over. The civil rights struggle continues, but at least we now have a black middle class and even a black president.

Brian Billick was an assistant public relations director for the San Francisco 49ers when they selected Joe Montana in the third round of the 1979 NFL draft. The reaction in the war room, Billick said, didn't come close to matching the Ravens' reaction Saturday night when they drafted quarterback Chris Redman in the third round. "It was just noise," Ravens director of college scouting Phil Savage recalled yesterday, laughing. Redman was the first player that Savage watched on tape last May after the Ravens failed to pick a quarterback -- and the last player that Savage watched Friday night on the eve of the draft.

To eat the crab mustard, or not to eat the crab mustard, that was the question.Recently I struggled with this uncertainty. I pondered which parts of the crab I wanted to eat, and which parts I didn't.I didn't think about it too long. A half-dozen soft crabs, soon to be known as supper, were sitting on the kitchen counter. It was my job to clean them, to prepare them for cooking by snipping off unwanted parts.I removed the underside of the crab called its apron. I opened it up and removed the gills or "devil's fingers."

Why should doctors be any different? Like the general public, physicians have differing views on the issue of abortion:An obstetrician of 40 years' standing, who remembers seeing women die after back-alley abortions, says safe abortions are a service he's glad he can provide his patients.A medical resident assigned to learn how to perform second-trimester abortions says nightmares forced her to tell her supervisors she had to be reassigned.Dr. Ben Carson, a Johns Hopkins Hospital pediatric neurosurgeon, says that "as an individual who spends a lot of time trying to maintain life, I'm not going to be particularly enthusiastic about destroying life."

The Fighting Irish in Ireland. What a concept. Natural-sounding as Alice in Wonderland, and potentially even curiouser.The University of Notre Dame football team, along with marching pep band, cheerleaders, flag-toters and one fist-thrusting leprechaun, all fly to Dublin this month.Then, on Nov. 2 in a stadium that seats and stands 70,000 for hurling (which is a Gaelic game resembling full-contact field hockey), Lou Holtz's squad will take on a football team representing the U.S. Naval Academy in the first Shamrock Classic.
