I am numb, and the playoffs haven't even started. What a great night of TV baseball. What a fine job ESPN did of offering the key games. And what a terrific performance in the booth by MASN's Jim Palmer and Gary Thorne in the Baltimore Orioles comeback victory over the Boston Red Sox. From about 10:30 p.m. on, it felt like I was in a perfect TV and baseball lover's dream switching in and out of the Tampa and New York Yankees game during the...

For the price of two crab cakes, coleslaw and fries, beer, tax and tip, the auctioneer of a landmark downtown bar and restaurant sold all the cozy booths where 50 years worth of boozy gossip met attentive ears. Even the signature Old English-style decorative shields at Burke's Cafe at Light and Lombard streets went for $5 apiece, a little less than the price of a bowl of Maryland crab soup. No one wanted the diamond-shaped leaded-glass windows. Bidders also abstained from making offers at the elongated wood bar that once drew judges, jurors and journalists.

The anachronistic home, which has belonged to Myrtle Sachs and her family for more than 60 years, is something of a mystery for those passing through the industrial area surrounding Baltimore-Washington International Thurgood Marshall Airport.

America voted Tuesday amid much anger and fear. The anger is felt toward a federal government perceived by many to be ignoring the public will. The fear is of an uncertain future in the hands of politicians who seem to many voters unable to cope with the new economic distress. Much of the anger has been deep but unfocused. As expressed by some in the tea party movement and by other conservatives, the country under President Barack Obama is moving down the road to "socialism. " Whether through the new health care act, the new regulations of the banking and investment world, or the auto company bailouts, he is seen by the most extreme of them to be like some kind of foreign agent.

The more I hear Jon Stewart and Stephen Colbert talking about their rally scheduled for Saturday on Washington's National Mall, the more I wonder if there is anything that is not a laughing matter in our national life any more. Actually, laughter might be too active and committed a concept for the kind of consumers of humor that we have become, thanks in large part to TV comedians like David Letterman a generation ago and now Colbert and Stewart, where everything is irony and postmodern mockery.

John Madden isn't in the broadcast booth anymore, but he still has a booming voice within the NFL. Madden, 73, is an adviser to Commissioner Roger Goodell on football matters and chairs a coaches' subcommittee to the competition committee. He watches every game from his viewing complex in Pleasanton, Calif., reviews video during the week and keeps close tabs on players and trends. This week, from his home in Carmel, he spoke to Tribune newspapers NFL reporter Sam Farmer about overtime, the draft, technology and a certain quarterback who's on the fence about returning to the Vikings.
