Doug Gansler's truly bad day of TV optics started Thursday with a Sun story and accompanying picture off Instagram of a beach party the attorney general attended in Delaware. By 9 a.m., the cable channels were running with the picture and the story -- and it went that way on the hour throughout the day straight through the network evening newscasts and prime-time cable. And then, the story was picked up by late-night comedians. Here's what Jay Leno had to say on the "Tonight" show.

The answer to one of the biggest questions about the 2013 season is almost clear now. Did Ravens quarterback Joe Flacco earn the $120.6 million contract he signed during the offseason? Absolutely. Can he carry a team? No. If he could, the Ravens would have beaten the Cleveland Browns here Sunday, especially following the bye week. Instead, the Ravens lost and looked like other Super Bowl champions that won and then faded for a year or two after the title. It is impossible to put all of the Ravens problems on the shoulders of Flacco.

Retired Air Force Col. Edward Hubbard likes to engage people in a little mind game he calls "Good Day or Bad Day?" Consider, oh, July 20, 1966. That morning, as the Vietnam War raged, 28-year-old Lt. Ed Hubbard's jet was shot out of the skies over North Vietnam by a SAM missile, causing the six-man crew to eject at 16,000 feet as the aircraft screamed out of control. Within hours, he was captured, stripped and forced to march for hours blindfolded with a rope tied around his neck, thus beginning more than 6 1/2 years as a POW, during which he was routinely starved, tortured and tossed in solitary confinement.

Daniel Powter really loves his life right now. And I can see why. Homeboy is living his lifelong dream: circling the globe and singing for packed venues filled mostly with screaming young women. He blew in from Canada a few months back with a warm hug of single, "Bad Day," which rocketed to No. 1 on the pop charts, thanks to its ubiquitous use on the last season of American Idol. Chatty, friendly, as buoyant as his music, Powter is calling from Los Angeles during a brief break on his national tour.

For airline travelers in Baltimore and to the north, yesterday was a really bad day among many bad days this summer. An afternoon thunderstorm briefly shut down or delayed traffic at Baltimore-Washington International Thurgood Marshall Airport and several other airports, causing delays to ripple throughout the rest of the day. The longest waits were in New York and Boston, said the Federal Aviation Administration. "It was a tough day," said Whitney Eichinger, a spokeswoman for Southwest Airlines, which is BWI's largest carrier and also serves airports in Philadelphia and the New York and Boston regions.

DETROIT -- Two months of waiting, pain likened to a "migraine of the shoulder," cortisone shots and rehabilitation behind him, the day that Jimmy Key and the Orioles had awaited finally arrived yesterday against the Detroit Tigers.For Key, making his first start since May 20, his anticipation quickly turned to frustration. The pitcher who left two months before did not return. The Tigers reached Key for three runs and nine base runners in three difficult innings. Though the damage could have been worse -- the Orioles won, 6-4, behind the bullpen's six innings of three-hit relief -- Key separated himself from a clubhouse celebrating a three-game sweep.

The Magrath sisters are having a bad day - "a real bad day," as youngest sister Babe would put it. But a bad day for the three siblings at the center of Crimes of the Heart is a good day for theatergoers at Totem Pole Playhouse in Fayetteville, Pa., where Beth Henley's 1981 Pulitzer Prize-winning play is receiving a luminous production. Bad days are nothing new to the three Magrath girls. Their mother had one years ago and hanged herself - along with the family cat. Now it's the 30th birthday of the eldest sister, Lenny; her prized horse has been killed by lightning, and Babe is about to be released on bail after shooting her abusive husband in the stomach.

Ravens general manager Ozzie Newsome has been with the Ravens since they arrived in Baltimore in 1996, and he constructed the 2000 Super Bowl squad. It seems as if speculation about his future in Baltimore is an annual rite of winter, but Wednesday, Newsome indicated that he has no plans to leave anytime soon. “I enjoy coming to work. I don't know if I have a bad day. I make a lot of mistakes,” Newsome said. “But I don't know if I have a bad day at the office. With the people that's in this building, I really enjoy what I do. I don't know how long [he'll stay]

ST. PETERSBURG, Fla. - In his first opportunity as an Opening Day starter, Orioles right-hander Jason Hammel allowed just three hits and three runs in six innings and picked up his first victory in 32 outings at his old home, Tropicana Field. And yet afterward he was far from happy. "Overall, I was pretty bad today," said Hammel, who walked one, struck out two and retired 10 of the first 11 batters he faced Tuesday. "Just uncharacteristically wild with the fastball. Seventy-five pitches after six innings.

Just when you thought life couldn't get more depressing for Edith, it does. Big time. Turns out the Gods of Aristocrats can't give poor Edith a break. Was her indiscretion with that farmer really worth so much karma? Look, it's not like her living happily ever (old person) after with the so-fragile-you-touch-him-and-he'll-fall-apart Anthony Strallan was ever a safe bet. 1) He's nice enough but sort-of creepy. 2) He looks like a ghost from a Henry James novel. 3) His arm = busted.

Ten years ago, a debilitating heart attack left Bernie Weisman unable to walk or talk, and yet the rabbi at his recent funeral said Bernie never had a bad day. With confidence the rabbi made that remark, having been assured by those closest to Bernie that the happy spirit he displayed for his first 55 years remained for the last 10. Such a spirit is not easily disabled. "At the end of his 65 years of life," Rabbi Dana Saroken of Beth El Congregation said at last month's funeral, "this is who Bernie was and who he always will be — a man who lit up the room wherever he was, a man who, despite any circumstances, never had a bad day, who smiled from morning until night; a man you could meet and within five minutes you would fall in love; the most generous and giving person who couldn't do enough for you, who never had an unkind word to say about anyone, who made time for everyone, and would even answer the phone lovingly — 'Hey doll!

Ravens free safety Ed Reed was upset with his performance following a 55-20 rout of the Oakland Raiders on Sunday, so much so that he was apologetic afterward. The former NFL Defensive Player of the Year ricocheted off of former University of Maryland wide receiver Darrius Heyward-Bey, missing the tackle on a 55-yard touchdown catch in the second quarter. Reed incurred a right shoulder stinger and didn't finish the game, but not because of his injury. "Just had a bad day," Reed wrote on his Twitter account.

Baltimore's air is healthier to breathe than it used to be, but the region still has some of the nation's worst smog and soot pollution, according to the American Lung Association. In its annual report on the state of the nation's air, the advocacy group says the greater Baltimore-Washington region had nearly 41 fewer days of high ozone levels during 2010, the most recent year for which verified federal air-quality data are available. But the region still had the 13th most bad smog days out of 277 metropolitan areas across the country.

The Ravens got a critical AFC North win against the Cleveland Browns Sunday, but it wasn't the best of days for Danny Gorrer. The third-year cornerback thought he recorded the first forced fumble of his career when he stripped wide receiver Jordan Norwood early in the second quarter. But Cleveland challenged the on-field ruling, and video officials agreed, saying that Norwood had not completed the pass and turning Gorrer's caused fumble into a pass breakup. “When he caught the ball and was running, I thought, 'Somehow, I've got to get the ball out for my team,' and I just punched it and it came out,” Gorrer said.
