One in a series of profiles of Maryland delegates to the Democratic National Convention Herbert Graves has volunteered for Democratic candidates for decades, but he says no one has inspired him the same way as Barack Obama. Graves first heard Obama speak at the Democratic convention in 2004 - and he was hooked. At this year's convention in Charlotte, which begins Tuesday, the Bolton Hill Democrat is a delegate supporting the president's re-election. During those eight years, Graves said, his support never waned.

A woman who police said ran down a Bolton Hill street firing a pistol into the air while chasing a man who had just robbed her boyfriend at gunpoint was ordered jailed Wednesday on $35,000 bail. The .40-caliber Beretta that Keyna Oduyoye told police she used to scare off two attackers Monday night on Bolton Street was registered legally, authorities said, but the Randallstown woman lacked a permit to carry the weapon. The couple had set up a meeting with the men to buy a car advertised on Craigslist.

The couple in search of a car found the sedan they wanted for sale on Craigslist for $4,000. They arranged a meeting Monday night on a street in Bolton Hill lined with 19th-century rowhouses. But Baltimore police said both the seller and the buyer took guns to the transaction. And when one of the men who posted the ad drew his weapon and demanded money from the prospective buyer, police said his female acquaintance pulled her own gun and fired into the air. The gunman dropped his weapon on Bolton Street and the woman gave chase, "firing her weapon numerous times indiscriminately in the air," said city police spokesman Anthony Guglielmi.

Please indulge me today. Having reached an age at which I would look at the obituary page every morning even if I were not professionally obliged to keep up with the paper, and at which I more regularly attend funerals and memorial services, I would like to say a couple of farewells. If you are in Baltimore, you may have heard of Dudley Clendinen: read either of his books or his published articles, or listened to him talk with Tom Hall on WYPR-FM over the months that amyotrophic lateral sclerosis was claiming his body.
