From one of the most portentous elections in county history to landmark legislation aimed at preventing trees from becoming an endangered species, 1990 should prove to have left quite a mark on the people and places of Anne Arundel County.In Annapolis, lawmakers dueled over a proposed landfill expansion that city officials say is essential to the capital city's economic health. In Crofton, residents feared for their safety after a woman was murdered in the woods near the library. And in Shady Side, residents pulled together to help an Ohio town ravaged by floodwaters -- even though the only bond they shared was a similar name.

JP Morgan, BP, Walmart, and the multibillionaire Koch brothers have just launched a TV advertisement blasting President Obama for the national debt. Actually, I don't know who's behind the ad because there's no way to know. And that's a big problem. The front group for the ad is Crossroads GPS, the sister organization to the super PAC American Crossroads run by Republican political operative Karl Rove. But because Crossroads GPS is a nonprofit, tax-exempt "social welfare organization," it can spend unlimited money and doesn't have to reveal its sources.

CBS News anchor Dan Rather has always loved to be in the thick of the big story - whether that story was the Watergate scandal, the Soviet invasion of Afghanistan, or as recently as Labor Day, a hurricane bearing down on the United States.

The report, which aired Sept. 8 on 60 Minutes, for which Rather served as the on-air correspondent, relied upon documents said to come from the personal files of Lt. Col. Jerry B. Killian, the squadron commander.

I hate it when they do that.The new administration at the Charles Theater has tried so mightily to provide the city with a menu of interesting cinema, something far removed from the blander product of the suburban multiplexes, and in the long months of their regime, they've not once had to stoop to conquer.Enter: "Spike & Mike's Festival of Animation '95."I hate it when they do that!For those of you not burned hopelessly out on artsy animation, here's a preview, delivered by a man with a jaundiced eye and a clothespin on his nose.

Orioles fans are chortling this morning after the Detroit Tigers routed the New York Yankees 8-1 Thursday for a four-game sweep of the American League Championship Series. This was an unbelievably humiliating series for the Yankees, which always plays well here. It's been fun watching the notorious New York media savage the home team, too. The Yankees seemed intent in mailing this one in from the beginning. It didn't help that Yankees' ace C.C. Sabathia, who surrendered 11 hits and six runs, appeared to be throwing batting practice to the Tigers yesterday.
