Donald Gansauer wrote from Canton last week: " When I got up it was clear. Shortly afterward a dense fog occurred. A few minutes later the fog was gone. All before sunrise. Can you explain this? " The simplest explanation is that there was plenty of surface moisture over the harbor. Clear skies overnight and radiational cooling sank air temperatures to the dew point, condensing the moisture and creating fog. Light, pre-dawn winds then moved it over Canton, then pushed it away.

The Orioles didn't have any selections in the first two rounds Thursday night. By signing free agents Ubaldo Jimenez and Nelson Cruz, the Orioles forfeited their first-round pick (No. 17) and second-round pick (No. 55). Additionally, a competitive-balance pick (No. 37) was sent to the Houston Astros last year in the trade for right-hander Bud Norris.

Well, if you’re reading this, you must have found out where the blogs are now listed on the North County News website . This past month has been a turbulent technological one for me. All Patuxent newspapers converted to a new computer system and the North County News was the first to be published using the new way of doing things. Like any innovation, I’m sure I’ll get the hang of it. But I hope those nice young techies who patiently explained things to me realized they’re dealing with someone who actually once used a rotary telephone and a typewriter.

During 37 years as a feature writer, sometime editor and longtime restaurant critic at the Sun, I had many proud moments and even a few awards. But I don't think anything pleased me as much as being named The Sun 's Best Blogger by the City Paper in the fall of 2007. A few months before, my editor had told me I would be joining the digital age. I would write a food and restaurant blog, to be called Dining@Large. I wasn't sure I knew what a blog was. Being a restaurant critic was a fabulous job, but I'd done it for a long time.

In today's Baltimore Sun, I wrote about well-known c riminologist David M. Kennedy making a comeback to Baltimore . His approach to violence reduction, often referred to as Ceasefire, was tried here in the late 1990s, and never really got off the ground. But it had worked before then, and has been embraced by leaders across the country with good results since. Baltimore and Kennedy both want to give it another try. I spoke with Kennedy earlier this week about his views on inner city violence and Baltimore, much of which couldn't fit into today's article.

Torrey Smith is one of the most active Ravens players on Twitter. But the wide receiver decided on Wednesday that 140 characters wasn't enough to express his random thoughts, so he started a blog. His first topic? Missouri defensive end and NFL draft prospect Michael Sam, who revealed Sunday night that he is gay. “I would personally like to applaud Michael Sam for being the first in this profession to be open and honest about his sexuality,” Smith wrote. “This shows his courage and strength.

Now that the NFL season is here, I'm putting a twist on my weekly Blogger on Blogger series. Each week, I will enlist a blogger who regularly writes about the Ravens' opponent to help me break down the game. This week, I exchanged emails with Max DeMara, who blogs about the Detroit Lions for Lions101.com . MV: The Lions were expected to run away with the NFC North after the Green Bay Packers lost Aaron Rodgers and the Chicago Bears lost Jay Cutler. But the Lions have lost three of their past four games and remain tied with the Bears at 7-6. The Packers, who could get Rodgers back this week or next, are a half game back at 6-6-1.

Red Maryland is much more than a blog and a  Twitter  presence; it is a burgeoning online radio network, the Red Maryland Network, which encompasses online programming six nights a week. The origins of the network trace back to early 2007 when our Greg Kline began the Conservative Refuge Podcast , which ran from 2007 through the launching of the network. Greg had political guests, analysis and bloggers on the show, which discussed various aspects of conservatism.  In 2008, Warren Monks from WAMD radio in Aberdeen began having on various Red Maryland personalities as guests.

The confessions from moms on the Scary Mommy blog are often funny: the spoon kept in the glovebox for eating Ben & Jerry's in the store parking lot, letting ketchup count as a "vegetable," going to the gym to read magazines instead of work out. But as Thanksgiving approached two years ago, ScaryMommy.com founder Jill Smokler saw despair from her readers: the mother who swallowed her pride to get a food box, only to be told she made too...
