Even if Caryn Elaine Johnson had never changed her name to Whoopi Goldberg, chances are she would have made a splash. Talent will out. The 56-year-old Goldberg, who will offer a sampling of that talent at the Modell Performing Arts Center at the Lyric on Saturday, has distinguished herself in a variety of endeavors. She's one of only about a dozen people who can adorn a mantelpiece with an Oscar, a Tony, a Grammy and an Emmy — make that two Emmys. She shared one of those Emmys with fellow co-hosts of "The View," the popular daytime TV show.

So Ann Romney never worked a day in her life. Maybe there were times when she enjoyed her "work," but that brings to mind the gist of Brooks Robinson 's comment during the baseball strike: "I'll strike along with the rest but, frankly, I'd play for nothing; I love playing baseball. " So I guess Brooks Robinson never worked a day in his life either. Or how about the fireman who waits in the firehouse for a fire and never had one for a week. Did he not work that week? Perhaps Democratic strategist Hilary Rosen meant that Ann Romney never received a wage or salary for "work.

We love presidential debates: the theatrics, the clearly rehearsed talking points, moderator Jim Lehrer! But we also love the chance it provides to drink (we're talking about watching politicians talk for 90 minutes, here). So here's b's official 2012 Presidential Debate Drinking Game ™. Because sometimes you need a little booze when listening to politicians talk about domestic issues back and forth. Drink if: Osama bin Laden is mentioned (even though the debate will focus on domestic policy)

Regarding Marta Mossburg's column "Biology really is destiny" (April 25), biology really is not destiny in any meaningful sense. Is a woman who chooses not to have children willfully - or stupidly - defying her destiny? Would that make her a failure as a woman? Are birth control pills thus evil? It's a shame Ms. Mossburg got so caught up in the media frenzy that she couldn't usefully reflect on Hillary Rosen's comment about Ann Romney. As a single father who raised three teenage boys while working 50 hours a week, I can certainly attest to the difficulties of parenthood.

If there's one thing political strategists fear and detest, it's losing control of the message of their campaign. That's why the current super PACs that are the rage his year are at best a mixed blessing for the candidates whose interests are intended to be served by them. In the super PACs' independence, real or feigned, their operatives often inject into the campaign views that the formal message-shapers would prefer to be ignored or unstated. When these views prove detrimental to the official line of the campaign, official strategists are obliged to spend time and effort disavowing the free-lance comments and getting the campaign back on the intended track.

The reality is that most women do not have a choice whether to work or stay home. Democratic strategist Hilary Rosen's comment regarding Ann Romney's workplace experience had nothing to do with respect for women choosing to be homemakers rather than working outside the home. Two wage earner families have become the norm out of financial necessity. Today's women are not only saddled with the need to run households but also attend to care of their children while working outside the home to help put food on the table and keep a roof over our families' heads.

Jon Stewart was having some fun Tuesday with the seemingly tepid endorsement some leading Republicans have bestowed upon Mitt Romney. He pointed to the one where John McCain called him the wrong name. Another from former New York Gov. George Pataki who added a string of qualifiers including: "Mitt is not a perfect candidate. He has a number of problems.... " With such flat praise, Stewart joked, "It's like, 'I like Ike' would have been 'Ike's fine.' Or Reagan's 'optimistic morning in America' would have been 'yeah, it's time to get up.'" "Can anybody out there offer a strong unequivicobale endorsement of Mitt Romney," the"Daily Show"host asked, leading to the reason why this is worth noting in Baltimore.

Well. I know I speak for many women when I say, "Thank heaven that's settled. " Women like me have been struggling with our identities as working mothers for decades, but thanks to Hilary Rosen, Ann Romney and Hillary Clinton, we now have some clarity. Because of commentator Rosen's unfortunate choice of words (Ann Romney "never worked a day in her life"), we have it on the highest authority that raising children is, indeed, hard work. And because Hillary Clinton was caught knocking back a beer and dancing in a Colombia cantina while on summit duty, we now know it is impolite for a woman to drink beer from a bottle instead of a glass.

Mitt Romney's wife Ann is at the center of a renewed battle in the mommy wars, which have raged since the end of the Ozzie and Harriett days. Should the leading Republican presidential candidate be consulting his wife, as he says he does, on issues about women? A CNN commentator created a firestorm by saying Ann Romney has never worked a day in her life, so how could she understand economic issues facing women today? Apologies for the comment were forthcoming, and rightly so. Certainly raising five boys must be considered "working.

There are two major theories about why Mitt Romney is dropping in the polls. One is that Romney is a lousy candidate, unable to connect with people or make his case. The other is that Americans are finally beginning to see how radical the GOPhas become and are repudiating it. Most Republicans hold to the first view, for obvious reasons. And their long knives are already out. Conservative columnist Peggy Noonan called the Romney campaign "incompetent" and "a rolling calamity. " Republican guru William Kristol termed Mr. Romney's videotaped remarks about the 47 percent "arrogant and stupid.

The Republican team of Mitt Romney and Paul Ryan is less about the future than it is about nostalgia for a past that many Americans imagine was better -- a time when businessmen were free of government meddling and all citizens, even the poor, old or handicapped, were expected to fend for themselves or scrape by on charity. From the election of Franklin Delano Roosevelt in 1932 until the election of Ronald Reagan in 1980, a different, liberal ethic drove our politics, even during the Republican administrations of Eisenhower, Nixon and Ford.
