A hundred years ago, U.S. Naval Academy band master Charles Zimmermann took his orders from a midshipman. The prolific composer was approached by midshipman Alfred Miles with two verses of lyrics and a wish: a song with a "swing" to it, something that would last forever. The song Zimmermann created for the Class of 1907, "Anchors Aweigh," has indeed lasted, sending countless sailors off to sea -- and Navy football players onto the field against Army.

WHEN SEN. Tom Harkin finished his speech announcing he was running for president, an aide asked the band to play "Happy Days Are Here Again.""Can you hum a few bars?" the puzzled band leader asked.That tells you something about today's Democratic Party. That song is as much a part of party lore and literature as, say, "Anchors Aweigh" is part of the Navy's.The song is thought of as a "recovery" song, but, in fact, it was intended to be a "peace" song, debuted as sarcasm, then entered politics as an "anticipation" song.

Absolute Power (1997) Clint Eastwood stars as the sensitive thief who can save the entire American political system from complete corruption. Too bad he wasn't around during the Reagan administration. Eastwood discovers presidential corruption during his final heist before being arrested, but not before he and Gene Hackman appear in several sites around Baltimore. The Towson Court House doubles as the site of a presidential press conference, Brooklandville's Maryland Prep is the mansion, and Eastwood shows the thief's artsy side while sketching at the Walters' Art Gallery.

When you're 7 years old, there are other ways to enjoy an early Saturday morning. Sleeping in. Watching your favorite cartoons. Pancakes for breakfast. But at 9 a.m. yesterday in Annapolis, David Bugenhagen and 12 of his friends - some yawning, others popping with energy - sat in a classroom (of all places) doing something they thought they wouldn't have to do until school started: homework. The kids don't mind. At least, not too much, because after class they get the chance to do what really floats their boats - sail.
