A one-of-a-kind oboe belonging to a musician with the Baltimore Symphony Orchestra was reportedly stolen outside a Montreal hotel Tuesday morning. With the BSO season starting in less than a month, she's anxious to get it back. “We all are very wedded to these instruments,” said Katherine Needleman, principal oboist for the BSO. “It's very special to me. It's the only one like it.” Needleman said the oboe was a prototype, made by Yamaha while she was working with the company in developing a new model.

Robinson and Duncan now start side-by-side with the Spurs, and were All-Star teammates yesterday.Robinson, obviously, is glowing about the help on the front line on a team that has had its toughness questioned in the past."He's so composed, nothing bothers him and he just keeps coming and comes to play," Robinson said of Duncan.

Ron Paolucci believes you're entitled to your opinion, but he has plenty of ways to refute the overwhelming sentiment that his 30-1 long shot filly Ria Antonia will be overmatched running with the colts in Saturday's 139th Preakness Stakes. The horse's co-owner will point to the race sheet, which says his horse is the second-highest earner of the Preakness entrants behind Kentucky Derby winner California Chrome, thanks to a November win at the Breeders' Cup Juvenile Fillies. He'll boast that he and his filly don't mind their long odds, because neither horse nor owner cares much about respect.

Singling out someone as the top player in any sport is never easy, and I certainly don't envy the task that awaits the Tewaaraton Foundation, which must choose from Loyola Maryland senior defenseman Joe Fletcher, Princeton senior midfielder Tom Schreiber, Albany junior attackman Lyle Thompson, Albany senior attackman Miles Thompson and Duke senior attackman Jordan Wolf as the winner of college lacrosse's version of the Heisman Trophy. But, as with any honor of this nature, there is bound to be some second-guessing.

As Wendy Wu waited at the end of a Charles Village street to be escorted to her home Friday afternoon, a city police officer urged her and others to stay behind the yellow caution tape; small pieces of earth were still tumbling down the hill into a rail bed after a landslide two days earlier. Wu, 47, needed to go home to grab some things to get her through the next few days: her 10-year-old daughter's lacrosse uniform for a game that night, a Polish costume for a dress-up bazaar at school, books, clothes, hairspray — and a pink and yellow plumeria plant from New Orleans that she didn't want to die. City officials escorted Wu and other residents into their homes on the first block of E. 26th St. to collect personal items after a morning meeting with staff members from Mayor Stephanie Rawlings-Blake's administration.

Dan Rodricks ( "Time for someone to take the blame ," April 3) is absolutely right: Lt. Gov. Anthony Brown, the governor's point man for the Maryland Health Connection, is the state official chiefly responsible for the health exchange's embarrassing and expensive failure. Mr. Brown failed to execute properly the most important mission assigned to him. Were he an Army officer on active duty, he would surely have been relieved of his command and possibly demoted. Yet in his speeches and ads, he has the temerity to tout his leadership ability.

The Ravens said they were treating the matchup with the New England Patriots as a playoff game, and they got a look at what a top-notch playoff team with an elite quarterback looks like. The Patriots embarrassed the Ravens in front of a packed M&T Bank Stadium on Sunday and snapped their four-game winning streak. In those games, the Ravens had luck, miracle comebacks and a never-say-die attitude. On Sunday night, they just got destroyed, 41-7, by the Patriots. Playoffs? The Ravens still have a shot at the No. 6 seed in the AFC, but have to beat the Bengals in Cincinnati next week and hope either the Miami Dolphins or the San Diego Chargers lose.

“Fallacies do not cease to be fallacies because they become fashions.” - G.K. Chesterton With the gubernatorial campaign in full swing, and the Maryland General Assembly's legislative session less than two months away, we're going to see a lot of talk from state politicians about tax cuts and spending cuts. Most of what you'll hear or read about those issues will be pure prevarications. At a forum on state manufacturing, Democratic and Republican candidates supported the idea of cutting the state's corporate income tax rate . Attorney General Doug Gansler, a Democrat, and Republican candidates Harford County Executive David Craig, Del. Ron George and Charles Lollar all support some form of reduction in the corporate income tax rate.
