Baltimore-made "House of Cards" brought some extra Hollywood star power to the White House Correspondents' Dinner Saturday night in Washington. Here's Kevin Spacey starring in the "House of Nerds" spoof video (above) that topped the event. He's superb. Maryland Congressman Steny Hoyer gets some nice face-time as well in the video. #sigshell { float: left; width: 320px; height: 52px; margin: 20px 0px; display: block; } #sigheadshot{ float: left; margin: 0px 10px 0px 0px; }

Public and private pressure to end his unique role as the president of two major-league baseball teams apparently hastened Carl Barger's decision to step down as the Pittsburgh Pirates' president.Barger, named as the expansion Florida Marlins' president, hoped to remain with the Pirates through the end of the season. He later privately moved up the target date for his departure to Sept. 1.But when some baseball executives, and NL president Bill White, questioned how Barger could act on behalf of one team while employed by another, he decided to leave the division-leading Pirates Aug. 2.Barger hopes to wrap up two unfinished projects -- reportedly a contract for potential free-agent Bobby Bonilla and the renegotiation of the Pirates' lease at Three Rivers Stadium before he leaves office.

New York. -- Curt Flood, a 165-pound whippet of a center fielder, could outrun most fly balls but it took him 24 years to catch up to his 1969 Gold Glove award.His story is rich with lessons about courage, freedom and the conceit that we can predict freedom's consequences.He had a career batting average of .293 in 15 seasons, 12 with the Cardinals. But nothing so became him in baseball as his manner of leaving it. Although he played 13 games with the 1971 Senators, he really left after the 1969 season when the Cardinals traded him to Philadelphia and he said hell no, I won't go.Black ballplayers have done much to move freedom forward.

PURCHASE, N.Y. - Around the streets here at midday, few men can be seen. There may be a retired schoolteacher and a gardener or two, but mostly Terry Purinton is alone. Between 8 in the morning and 6 in the evening, he is often the lone man in the grocery store, at the park or picking up the kids from school. By now, he is used to it. It has been more than a decade since Purinton, 37, began taking care of the house and children while his wife, a documentary film producer, went to work in New York City.

Paris, where my husband and I are living for several weeks this summer, always inspires me. Several nights ago, we invited a friend to join us for dinner at a small Left Bank restaurant. To begin the meal, our guest asked for the special of the day, Girolles a la Provencal. Delicious, firmly textured mushrooms that are a rich mustard-gold in color, girolles are beloved of French cooks. They arrived at the table in a little shallow casserole, piping hot and fragrant with the scent of garlic.
