Baltimore pastor Jamal H. Bryant was among protesters arrested in Ferguson, Mo., on Monday, as he and other clergy demonstrated against police brutality and misconduct. Bryant was on the front lines of a crowd of hundreds of protesters and faith leaders marching from a church to the Police Department in Ferguson, the town where unarmed teenager Michael Brown was fatally shot by police two months ago. In a tweet posted Monday afternoon, Bryant said he had been released. "Just released from St Louis county!"

Major league officials were relieved when the Orioles and Royals were able to play Game 1 of the American League Championship Series at Camden Yards in spite of a constant threat of rain. They might not be so lucky on Monday night. The forecast calls for a 100 percent chance of rain during the day and a 90 percent chance of rain on Monday night in the Kansas City area. If Mother Nature makes it impossible to get the game in, the same scenario will apply that was in play in Baltimore.

The marble head and body of the George Washington Monument in Baltimore reemerged last week from the scaffolding that has ensconced it for nearly a year, and all exterior renovations are expected to wrap up this month. The $5.5 million restoration project for the 178-foot obelisk in Mount Vernon is ahead of schedule, and entire building should be uncovered in time for the annual Monument Lighting in December, said Cathy Rosenbaum, of the Mount Vernon Place Conservancy. Cranes will arrive this week to remove some of the heavier construction infrastructure.

A painting of a confident-looking bulldog wearing a Baltimore Orioles baseball cap propped outside the artist Robert McClintock's studio bears a caption reading, "How 'bout dem O's, hon!" The artist Tom Matarazzo's hand-painted screens of the Orioles Bird, with jauntily tipped cap and grinning beak, have never been more in demand than they are this month. Steve Mull's colored-marker drawing of an Orioles team jersey, mitt and a pair of steamed crabs evokes such strong associations with the city that you can practically taste the Old Bay seasoning on those crustaceans.
