Our community has much to celebrate. Many congratulations and much merriment in the Forge during the last month of one of our nicest summers on record. And it was fantastic weather for a wedding. Just ask Harrison Levy and Sara Mosgin , new residents of Brandon Road. On Aug. 23 they promised to love, honor and live happily ever after in good times, like a picnic lunch by a beautiful lake, and challenging times, such as a heart-pumping, breath-catching 3-mile hike up a Colorado mountainside (which is how Harrison proposed)

Last week, former Fox News host Glenn Beck returned for a guest appearance with Megyn Kelly and created a bit of buzz saying he wished he'd have been more positive and less divisive during his days on the cable channel. Some call it an apology. I don't. He left Fox News in 2011 under a cloud of controversy. And I celebrated his leaving, because it meant one of the most divisive, reckless and polarizing figures I had ever covered was being marginalized. I remain convinced that mainstream TV and the country are much better off with him in the margins instead of having an audience of 1.8 million viewers a night as he did on Fox. Here's video of a debate between me and Amy Holmes, one of Beck's employees at TheBlaze, his information and opinion media operation.

In the next week or two the book "Rainmaker: Saga of Jeff Beck, Wall Street's Mad Dog," by Business Week's Tony Bianco, will be arriving in bookstores. It will undoubtedly be accompanied by a good deal of press attention as well as whispers on Wall Street.In the 1980s, Beck, an investment banker, became synonymous with some of the biggest takeovers ever. Wall Street Journal readers might remember him as the subject of last year's front-page story detailing his years of lies and deception, including his harrowing tales as a war hero in Vietnam, where he had never been.

Apparently quoting Vladimir Lenin to explain the deeper meaning of Obamacare, and stopping just short of calling President Barack Obama a communist, isn't inflammatory enough for Ben Carson in his new role as a paid Fox News contributor. After leveling the Joe-McCarthy-like charges against Obama on Megyn Kelly's show earlier this week, here's Carson raising his game and introducing "slavery" into the already fevered debate over the Affordable Care Act. I wonder how Johns Hopkins is feeling now about that "emeritus" title they gave Carson when he resigned in July.

Some restaurants just feel comfortable. E.W. Beck's Pub is one of those places. From the food to the service, dinner at the restaurant is easy, fun and enjoyable. Scene A Sykesville staple since 1992, E.W. Beck's occupies a large building right on the town's charming Main Street. The restaurant includes a bar and tons of dining space - most of which was filled during our Thursday night visit. E.W. Beck's is popular, and rightfully so. Between the friendly, prompt service and well-prepared takes on classic American food, it's no surprise that locals keep the restaurant busy.

I don't care if Al Gore got more money than he ever deserved for his pathetic channel, or Glenn Beck got the short end of the stick in trying to buy it as an escape from his prison of media marginalization. All of that is ideological and personality-obsessed, pop-culture nonsense that misses the point of the sale of Current TV to Al Jazeera. What's important is that Al Jazeera has found a way into an estimated 40 million American homes through the purchase of Gore's mismanaged channel, and that is a good thing - a very good thing.

You know the story about William Faulkner at the Oxford, Mississippi, post office, don't you? Sacked for sitting in the back reading the magazines instead of waiting on customers, he said, "Good, now I won't be at the beck and call of every son of a bitch that's got two cents. "  Well, when The Sun sent me off on my [cough] sabbatical [cough] in 2009 and I set up the blog at a new location, I decided that I no longer had to be at the beck and call of the Associated Press Stylebook . So I gladly adopted the Oxford comma and suited my own preferences in other matters.
