Senators of both parties decided that marriage conveys sufficient penalties without including taxes among them. Cong Ehrlich looked for the root cause of crime and found the appointment of Democrats as U.S. attorneys. Pity Bill. Imagine coming back jet-fatigued after foxing with Putin, to find the gang lurking for you at Camp David. Ospreys are back in Baltimore Harbor. Some birds of prey never left.

It was exactly one year ago today that Lee Mazzilli was fired as Orioles manager. "It doesn't seem that long," he said. He's not sorry to be gone. Trust me. I couldn't get Sidney Ponson's attention before the pre-game stretch, and I'm not sure he would have talked to me anyway. A New York television reporter asked Ponson if he had any special feelings being back in Baltimore. "None. Zero," he said. "I'm just happy to be on a winning team." firstname.lastname@example.org For more "Roch Around the Clock," go to baltimoresun.

Susan Fragola Shelby, 32, of Ellicott City is a computer scientist with the Department of Defense. In her entry, she updated Poe's classic poem:Once upon a midnight dreary, while I slumbered, so securely,Oh, the sorrow thrust upon me, in forgotten Baltimore.While they nestled, nicely napping, suddenly there came a tapping,As of someone slyly stealing, stealing them from Baltimore." 'Tis the thiefman," they all muttered, "Come to make us play no more --& In beloved Baltimore."Ah, distinctly I remember 'twas in March but seemed December,As each separate saddened member of the team walked out the door.

Baltimore city, of course, is facing a similar fiasco, a whopping $54 million budget gap for next year. But, in stark contrast to Howard, when Mayor Schmoke gave employees the choice of enduring layoffs or giving up their scheduled pay increases, there were, really, no options. Members of the City Union of Baltimore reluctantly deferred the 6 percent raise the union had won in bargaining only a year ago. The bitterness of the disappointment among city workers was as palpable as the frustration.

GLASGOW - The Baltimore Symphony Orchestra arrived in Scotland last night safe and sound after an uneventful, ahead-of-schedule charter fight from Baltimore-Washington International Airport. The musicians get to enjoy time on their own today before plunging into a 12-city European tour - the BSO's first visit to this side of the Atlantic since 1987 - with an all-Brahms program conducted by music director Yuri Temirkanov on Thanksgiving Day at Glasgow Royal Concert Hall. The tour moves on this week to three midland British cities (concerts in Leeds and Birmingham are sold out)

One veteran who is especially glad to be back in the Baltimore Football Club camp is wide receiver Robert Clark.After starting nine games and catching 16 passes for 294 yards last year, Clark's off-season got off to a disastrous start. About two weeks after Baltimore's Grey Cup loss, Clark drove home to Pittsboro, N.C. A few minutes from home, he swerved to avoid hitting a car that had suddenly stopped in front of him, lost control of his truck, rolled it and woke up in the hospital with a dislocated hip."
