In the days after my mother-in-law died we were busy in the way that people are after a death. There were arrangements to be taken care of -- a funeral home to be contacted, a mass to be scheduled.There were phone calls to be made, with more calls coming into the house almost as soon as the receiver was back in place. There were plans to be made for our children coming from out of town, beds to be juggled, and baby sitters found for their children. There was food to be ordered so that all of my mother-in-law's large and extended family could come to the house for lunch after the funeral.

The Ravens have a pretty significant matchup this Sunday when the 6-3 Cincinnati Bengals visit the 6-3 Ravens at M&T Bank Stadium. Four days after that contest, the 8-1 San Francisco 49ers will arrive for a Thanksgiving night showdown. The Thanksgiving clash pits John Harbaugh against his brother Jim, but John Harbaugh said he's not contemplating the challenge of playing two games within a five-day span. “No. This week is Cincinnati,” Harbaugh said during his weekly briefing Monday.

JERUSALEM - Masked Palestinian gunmen carried out execution-style killings yesterday of two Palestinians suspected of being informants for Israel and placed their bodies in the central square of the Tulkarm refugee camp in the West Bank. Palestinian militants have killed dozens of suspected informers or collaborators during the past three years of fighting. Such attacks often draw little attention, but the gunmen responsible for this shooting sought to publicize their deed both beforehand and afterward.

A day after Loyola upset Indiana, Greyhounds supporters debated whether it was the greatest win in the program's history and senior guard Brett Harvey marveled about the most unforgettable moments he has had on a basketball court. Harvey scored 25 points to lead Loyola to a 72-67 win at Indiana's Assembly Hall on Tuesday night in a game in which the Greyhounds lost a 24-point lead before Harvey hit a pair of key baskets in the final minutes. Some Loyola backers - about 20 of them traveled with the team and sat behind the bench - dubbed it the program's biggest regular-season win. "I don't think there is any question it's [coach]

The recent passing of television host and investment pundit Louis Rukeyser at age 73 was the end of an era, but it meant more to me than that. When starting out as a business reporter a couple of decades ago, I interviewed this unique fellow who was first to bring business and economic news to the masses. Fortunately, Rukeyser showed interest in my goals and discussed the potential in broad dissemination of information about money on TV and in print. He also invited me to attend a taping of his PBS television show, Wall Street Week, at Owings Mills.

Doris Hament Naron, who worked in a factory during World War II and later became an elementary school teacher, died Tuesday at her home in Florida after a series of mini-strokes. She was 84. Doris Hament was born and raised in Baltimore, where she graduated from Forest Park High School. When World War II broke out, she went to work in overalls -- which she saved as a keepsake for many years afterward -- at the Glenn L. Martin Co. She was a rivet inspector. She met her husband, Sylvan Jacob Naron, while working at the factory.

THE JOINT Korean-U.S. investigation into the 1950 No Gun Ri incident at least concluded that it happened. That vindicates the Korean survivors who always said that civilian refugees fleeing toward U.S. lines had been shot and strafed under a bridge by U.S. troops. It reverses years of U.S. denials that such an atrocity had occurred and validates the Pulitzer Prize-winning 1999 Associated Press report supporting survivor accounts. The joint statement said the U.S. troops were undertrained and new to combat, commanded by leaders with limited experience, unprepared for North Korean weapons and tactics, and "legitimately fearful of the possible infiltration of North Korean soldiers who routinely entered American lines in groups disguised as civilians in refugee columns."

At some point in the last three weeks, you may have picked up the local rag and turned to this section and thought: "Hmmm, where's what's-his-name? The fat guy with the crazy hair?" OK, fine, here's the story. As required by law of every citizen who reaches a certain age and has been at all active during his lifetime, I recently underwent hip-replacement surgery. And this strikes me as a good time to clear up a few myths about the operation. First of all, everyone tells you that a hip replacement is a piece of cake, and that they do so many now that it's become just another procedure, no big deal, like having a wart removed or something.

Baltimore Storage has been a fixture in town for more than a century, sited at Charles and 26th streets since 1923, and in his two dozen years there, President Jay Hott has done just about every kind of job. But the most recognizable moment in the history of the company, which is a local agent for Mayflower Transit Co., and in Hott's career, is best summarized in a message scrawled on the side of a toy truck on display in his office: "We didn't know!"...

LOS ANGELES -- The flight attendant wanted to help. It was five days after the attacks, and my 4-year-old and I had arranged flights back from New York to Los Angeles through Minneapolis. On the ground in Minneapolis, after taking our seats, I craned my neck to scrutinize every passenger. I must have looked quite intent because the flight attendant came right over. "Can I help you?" she asked. "What are you looking for?" I didn't hesitate or hide it. "I'm looking for Arabs," I said.

Take the daily pay for a Baltimore Circuit Court judge, prosecutor, public defender, two cops, a government chemist, sheriff's deputy and court clerk. Multiply by two. What do you get? The cost incurred this week when a two-day drug trial went down the tubes because one of the jurors spoke little English. The prosecution and defense had done their things, two alternate jurors had been sent home, and the jury was a couple of hours into deliberations when it sent a note to Judge Emanuel Brown.

WASHINGTON -- Washington Wizards coach Eddie Jordan said he and his players were not dwelling on history. At least not recent history. Missing the playoffs for seven straight years before now? Not an issue. Getting dogged on national television by Charles Barkley and Kenny Smith, though, that's another story. "It seemed like the entire NBA has been talking about how we played, how much tougher the opponent was, how much more guts they had," Jordan began his post-game news conference last night, the first comments spoken by a victorious Washington coach after a playoff series since Gene Shue did it with the Bullets in 1982.

WASHINGTON - The Army is planning to double service time for hundreds of officers going to Iraq and Afghanistan - an effort to meet "war time needs" that would include pulling officers out of military professional schools or delaying entry into these academic programs so they can deploy overseas, officials said. The plan calls for filling about 500 staff slots between Iraq and Afghanistan in the coming months, with majors and lieutenant colonels serving a year in those countries rather than the current 179 days.
