WASHINGTON -- Louisiana Gov. Kathleen Babineaux Blanco gave no ground to Capitol Hill critics yesterday, saying she and other state officials did all they could to save lives after Hurricane Katrina and that she feared Congress' focus on missteps was an excuse to deny more money for reconstruction. Blanco offered her first public accounting to Congress on her handling of the crisis as House and Senate negotiators wrangled over a new aid package for the states hit by the powerful storm.

Last Thursday afternoon, Michael Quattlebaum Jr. waited to board a flight from New York's LaGuardia Airport to Raleigh, N.C., where the 27-year-old would spend Christmas with his mother. It was a familiar feeling, as Quattlebaum found himself sitting in airports many times this year. But those trips were different: Quattlebaum, a gay man, spent 2013 touring the world, from Singapore to Germany to Texas' South by Southwest Festival, under the female rap alias Mykki Blanco. On Saturday, he will add Baltimore to the list when Mykki headlines the Ottobar . Along with the May release of a strong EP titled "Betty Rubble: The Initiation," Quattlebaum says it was his growing reputation as "a really strong performer" that allowed him to tour internationally for the first time this year.

At first glance, the Metro Gallery's Saturday night bill seems like an odd pairing: Dope Body - one of Baltimore's noisiest, most abrasive bands in years - and Mykki Blanco, a gender-bending, impressively nimble rapper from New York. But watch some live YouTube clips of each act, and the show makes more sense. Dope Body and Mykki Blanco command attention immediately, and both are capable of consistently winning over new audiences through sheer force and charisma. It doesn't matter that their albums would be categorized at opposite ends of the store.

All weekend long Ernesto Blanco felt lousy. The 73-year-old mail clerk could barely keep his eyes open. He had a heavy cough and was struggling for each breath. On Oct. 1, he walked into Cedars Sinai Hospital in Miami to see a doctor. "He thought there was something strange going on," Mari Orth, his stepdaughter, would later say. Blanco was right, but it would take two weeks to learn why. Doctors initially said he had pneumonia, and it wasn't until Monday that they made a startling announcement: Blanco had inhalation anthrax.

ERMUA, Spain -- White bed sheets stitched with black cloth wreaths hang from the balconies of apartment houses in the town where Miguel Angel Blanco lived.Blanco's picture adorns walls and windows; his soft face and warm eyes seem to follow pickup soccer games and twilight strolls in the main square.He was one man. He was every man. And now, he is a national martyr in a deadly fight for independence in Western Europe, whose violence is exceeded only in Northern Ireland.When the 29-year-old unpaid town councilman was abducted July 10 and murdered two days later by a Basque separatist group called ETA, the simmering national trauma ignited national fury.

From: Vinos de Madrid, Spain Price: $12 Serve with: Grilled seafood, Asian cuisine Even after more than 25 years of reviewing wines, there are new discoveries to be made. Malvar is a little-known white wine grape indigenous to Spain. This example is quite distinctive, with a piercing but refreshing acidity balanced by generous flavors for orange, grapefruit, lime and spices. With no oak influence, it's a real wake-up call for a tired palate and an excellent value in a dry white.

If the ageless Cuauhtemoc Blanco has come to represent Mexican soccer's recent past, then the babyfaced Javier Hernandez is the country's immediate future. So it seemed only natural that they should meet in the middle in chilly Polokwane on Thursday to make sure Mexico's present doesn't end prematurely. With both players coming off the bench in the second half to score, Mexico rolled to a 2-0 win over France that all but guarantees El Tri a spot in the World Cup's second round.

The last get-together came two weeks ago, when Lennon flew up from Florida to visit his family. With three other friends, he spent the evening at Nottingham's, a favorite nightclub hangout in Columbia. "It was pretty serendipitous," recalled Mani Kahn, who had come from New York City the same weekend to see his family.

WASHINGTON -- Apparently, Brownie wasn't the only one. You remember the grief that fell on Michael Brown, former head of the Federal Emergency Management Agency last month after the release of some embarrassing e-mails. They revealed that as Hurricane Katrina was submerging New Orleans and shredding Biloxi, Mr. Brown and his aides were exchanging e-mails on trivial matters, including the question of which clothes would make him "look more hard-working" on television. The e-mails were released at the request of a Democratic congressman to embarrass Mr. Brown, whose agency is widely felt to have bungled the federal response to the storm.

I get my hair cut at this place called Tight-N-Up. It has pretty much all the basic barbershop amenities. You've got your TV, you've got your back issues of Sports Illustrated and Jet, you've got your spirited debates about sports, politics and music. Best of all, you've got a price tag on the sunny side of reality: Give the barber a twenty and you'll get change. I invite John Edwards to drop by sometime. We learned recently that the Democratic presidential aspirant paid $400 each for two haircuts in California.
