Nobody asked me, but I think it's pathetic that Bobby Prigel's well-to-do neighbors and their lawyer in the Long Green Valley persist in trying to keep him from opening an organic creamery on his farm because they think the barn-like building will spoil their view. What a waste of time and money - and bad feelings for no good reason. Prigel has a great idea - a local, fourth-generation family farmer doing local farming, and in an organic, earth-friendly way - and he ought to be supported.

Now that Rep. Benjamin L. Cardin has completed his torturous journey to non-candidacy, Maryland Democrats must endure yet another period of waiting and watching to see if someone else dares to challenge Gov. Parris N. Glendening."

Everybody I know can't believe the news about Andy Barth. He is the longtime television reporter who is now pondering a run for the U.S. Congress. I saw the item in Laura Vozzella's column the other day and immediately called Jack Bowden and Susan White Bowden, who go back to the beginning of all time in Baltimore TV news. "You heard about Barth getting into politics?" I asked. "We did," said Jack Bowden. He and his wife worked alongside Barth at WMAR-TV for about two decades. "What do you think?"

Now we're talking. "Our city has been in crisis for decades," Baltimore's new archbishop, Edwin O'Brien, said shortly after his installation yesterday. From using "our" in reference to his new city, to bluntly noting the drugs, violence and poverty that beset it, O'Brien sent off signals as loud and clear as the pealing church bells that ended his official induction as Baltimore's 15th Roman Catholic archbishop: This was a church leader who would not retreat behind the cathedral doors but would emerge to mix it up a bit. Good for him. If it's not too sacrilegious, let me say to his Excellency, "Welcome to Baltimore, hon."

The top two Democrats in the U.S. Senate race were gentlemanly to the point of boring. Now one of them is gentlemanly to the point of startling. As in, "Ben's a friend" and "I think Mike Steele's a great guy." As in, "I wish them both well." That's what Kweisi Mfume told me yesterday, when he also mentioned that he wasn't conceding the race to Ben Cardin. He wouldn't say who - if anyone - he'd endorse if he still falls short after all the ballots are counted. "I'm going to have something to say about that," was his only answer.

William Donald Schaefer turned 85 yesterday, and he celebrated at the main Pratt Library with hundreds of friends and cake. A lot of cakes, actually. Eight-five of them. That's enough cake to keep a team of six bakers whipping and folding for a day, and sink six decorators up to their elbows in buttercreams, cream cheese frosting and chocolate drizzle for two and a half more. Lots of times at big events like weddings, there's one fancy cake for show - and a plain sheet cake back in the kitchen.

One minute you're nobody, an anonymous Irish expat in America, opining on Emerald Isle politics at the dawn of the blog age. Next thing you know, a dozen years zip by, and you're director of a governor's office. And not just any governor, but one fancied far and wide as a Democratic up-and-comer. One whom presidential hopefuls - Hillary Clinton, for instance - might well seek out for help on the campaign trail, just as Bill Clinton helped Martin O'Malley when he was running for governor.

Havre de Grace. -- The presidential primary election campaign in Maryland brings back a lot of memories of another campaign 16 years ago, and some of them are unsettling to a voter trying hard to make up his mind in the spring of 1992.In 1976, the Democratic powers-that-be let events get away from them, and before they knew it, the little-known Jimmy Carter was well on his way to winning the nomination. Many party big shots hated the prospect. Here in Maryland, Gov. Marvin Mandel went bananas.

Del. Jon Cardin has taken enough heat for wasting scarce police resources on his marriage proposal. It's the bizarr-o nature of the proposal itself that deserves further ridicule. Cardin popped the question the old-fashioned way - on bended knee. On bended knee, aboard a boat, in the Inner Harbor, beneath a police helicopter, amid a faux marine-unit raid, before a woman who feared arrest. Weighing a lifetime with a temporarily insane Baltimore County Democrat against a night in Central Booking, she said yes. Call me prudish, but I say, save the handcuffs for the honeymoon.

WASHINGTON - Rep. Benjamin L. Cardin will cast his first vote against a trade agreement during almost two decades in Congress this week, when a pact with several Central American countries comes up for what is expected to be a close House tally. Cardin, the top Democrat on the subcommittee that oversees trade, said he would break a long streak of supporting free-trade arrangements because the Central America Free Trade Agreement - known as CAFTA - doesn't do enough to promote the rights of overseas workers.
