There is peace on Lake Kittamaqundi. The teenage brothers who write the entertaining 2 Dudes Who Love Food blog posted all the way back in early February about their visit to Rudy's Mediterranean Grill & Diner. The newish big-menu serves breakfast, lunch and dinner seven days a week but things really get interesting after 4 p.m., when Rudy's rolls out its Turkish menu. The 2 Dudes had traveled to Turkey last year, and they were pretty pleased with what they found at Rudy's.

In the aftermath of Tuesday's fatal train derailment, Howard County bloggers have begun an impromptu campaign in support of Ellicott City restaurants and other Main Street businesses. "Old Ellicott City has had a tough year," Tom Coale wrote Wednesday morning on his HoCo Rising blog. "Less than 12 months ago, we saw antique chairs floating down the street and cars crushed under a less-than-retaining wall. In July, the power went out for almost all of Fourth of July weekend, forcing downtown restaurants to throw away thousands of dollars of food.

The Ed Reed v. Troy Polamalu debate has been a heated one in Baltimore, Pittsburgh and all points between since Polamalu came into the league in 2003. Both safeties are game-changing talents, perennial Pro Bowl players and the envy of the 30 NFL teams who don’t have a rooting interest in this debate. But in the eyes of ESPN’s blogger panel, which has been releasing weekly positional power rankings, it isn’t much of a debate. In this week’s safety rankings , ESPN’s seven division bloggers -- they are probably taking applications for the NFC East beat if you're interested -- and senior football writer John Clayton unanimously selected one of those safeties as the league’s best.

Count bloggers among those who are having trouble coming to terms with President Bush as the reader in chief. The White House's release of Bush's summer reading selections - including Camus' existentialist novel The Stranger and weighty biographies like Lincoln: A Life of Purpose and Power - as well as claims that the president has already devoured 60 books this year left the online chattering class buzzing. "Anybody buying this?" asked Cynical-C (cynical-c.com). The answer appeared to depend largely on political leanings.

Bloggers, by and large, are hands-off people. Some of the strongest voices against government interference in the lives of private citizens come from the blogosphere, so it should be no surprise that many bloggers were outraged by the reports about the National Security Agency's collection of millions of Americans' phone records. This is just the type of government meddling that sets off the online laissez-faire types. (Though many so-called conservative bloggers were quick to write off criticism of the NSA's secret efforts as liberal fear-mongering.

This could be the year we finally quit talking about blogs. Amid the continued popularity of the phenomenon, there are mounting signs that blogging is fast reaching its saturation point. Blog watcher Technorati was tracking 57 million blogs at the end of October, adding about 100,000 new blogs to its list each day. No one expects that pace to hold, and technology analyst Gartner Inc. believes that this will be the year that blogging peaks. In a report released a few weeks ago, the firm predicted that blogging will level off in the first half of 2007 at about 100 million bloggers.

SARASOTA, Fla. -- Orioles manager Buck Showalter walked into the interview room near the team's clubhouse after a 9-2 spring training victory over a split squad of the Pittsburgh Pirates at Ed Smith Stadium.

The assembled media, mostly from Baltimore and Sarasota publications, began the daily give-and-take with Showalter when perhaps the most pressing question came from Sydney Hudak.

The mainstream electronic media, still bruised from making bad calls in the 2000 election, ceded the dirty work to the new kid yesterday, allowing Internet news sites and Web logs to rule political reporting for much of the day - for better or worse. By early afternoon, online bloggers had started listing early, and sometimes questionable, exit poll information that showed Kerry leading Bush in the three key swing states of Ohio, Pennsylvania and Florida. And by early evening, before most polls closed and the networks resumed reporting, a few blogs and news Web sites were calling the race for Kerry.
