If the problem with the tea party/Republicans is that they do not want to offend Grover Norquist and high income Americans that they call "job creators," why don't they just show the rest of us how many jobs these folks have created since they have had the Bush tax breaks? If the number was significant, why do we have such high unemployment? I worked for more than 30 years, paid into Social Security and do not think that I should have to worry about next month's payment because of folks who refuse to see that a diverse country like this one must be governed by people who realize that all points of view must be heard.

Mike Boddicker has a World Series ring from the Orioles, whom the right-hander helped win it all in 1983. On Friday, however, he'll wear a Kansas City Royals T-shirt to watch the start of the American League Championship Series. "I bleed Royals blue," Boddicker said by phone from his home in Overland Park, Kan., 20 minutes from Kauffman Stadium. "This city has gone nuts. We've waited 29 years for a playoff team. These people have been so loyal for so long; I'll root for the city because it deserves this.

I am impressed and somewhat alarmed at the media blitz financed by the MSEA and the HCEA promoting their candidates for the Howard County Board of Education. Given that it is the Board of Education who negotiates our teachers, salary, benefits and pensions (that will soon be correctly our obligation, not the state's, to fund), am I the only one who sees a fox guarding the henhouse issue here? Given the next board may be making some very tough choices requiring that school funding be reduced so as to fund the obligations to the pension fund, I would prefer members with no particular allegiance.

Attorney General Douglas F. Gansler covered a number of topics at Wednesdays night's Baltimore Sun Newsmaker Forum , including fielding a sports question. Gansler, who has participated in Washington Redskins pregame broadcasts on  Comcast SportsNet , was asked about the team potentially changing its name. After pointing out to everyone that he was wearing a purple tie for the Ravens, he said the following: “I haven't really ... taken a position on that. I see both sides of the argument, but I do think if it offends anybody ... they certainly should consider changing the name.

I pledge allegiance to the ... homeowners association? Even in a time of flag-waving patriotism, this proposed oath of loyalty stands out: It would require Columbia Council members to swear their "undivided allegiance" to the Columbia Association. Critics call the pledge - which resembles a written oath of office - unnecessary, while supporters say it's important that council members make a promise to the community. Just what they are promising is unclear. Alex Hekimian, president of Alliance for a Better Columbia, a citizens watchdog group, said the wording of the pledge reflects an "autocratic, dictatorial form of government."

The phone calls began pouring into the White Marsh Mall almost from the moment Mike Mussina put on a Yankees jersey and cap and smiled for photographers in New York, where a news conference was taking place on Thursday that confirmed his defection from the Orioles. He had made a commitment to sign autographs, beginning at 1 p.m. yesterday, but that was before his life was redecorated in pinstripes. Would he still show up? And if so, how would he be accepted among fans still dealing with the loss of the Orioles' best pitcher to their most hated rival?

Saturday's Maryland-Florida State basketball game was more than an athletic contest. It was also a showcase for the unfettered, uncompromising allegiance known only to college students in the stands - and amplified by cheerleading and zany halftime shows. The Terps rewarded their fans' loyalty with an 82-72 victory.

Wrestling fans have seen the heel authority figure storyline over and over. It generally plays out in a similar way. The authority figure supports a heel wrestler, targets a face wrestler or both. Then, the heel wins the title, and the authority figure does a lot to try to help him keep the title. And for a while, The Authority storyline has played out exactly that way. On Monday's WWE Raw, however, it took a bit of a turn. At the beginning of the show -- as Randy Orton was ranting about how he was being mistreated, and that as the face the company, he should be treated better -- The Authority came out. It had been teased over the past few weeks that there might be dissension between Orton, Triple H, and Stephanie McMahon, but Monday night was the first time that it was acknowledged directly.

Why does this flag look different than on Sept. 10, 2001? Why does the anthem sound more special each time we hear it sung? I see this flag in a different light as I see it waving in the sky, My heart is filled with such love and pride, sometimes it makes me cry. I think it's like a loved one that was almost taken away. And that I would love them so much more, if given one more day. This flag represents many, a country full of much diversity, Yet somehow through a tragic day, we have become one family.

While Republicans beat the drums of demagoguery with an attack on birthright citizenship designed to stoke anti-immigrant fervor in an election year, I'd like to suggest they shift focus back to another part of the Constitution that really needs to go: the requirement that the president be born in the United States. You can Google it, my fellow Americans: Article II, Section 1, Clause 5 says you can't run for the White House unless you were born here. Seven years ago, Orrin Hatch, the sartorially splendid Republican senator of Utah, proposed an amendment to allow foreign-born Americans who have been citizens for at least two decades to run for president.

Corvis Corp. of Columbia said yesterday that it has raised $225 million from the sale of senior unsecured convertible notes to several institutional investors as the fiber-optic company seeks to expand its telecommunications business. The money will be used for general purposes and "strategic acquisitions," said Andrew G. Backman, Corvis' vice president of investor and public relations. Corvis hopes to acquire businesses for Broadwing Communications Services, a Dallas carrier it bought in June as it sought to diversify.
