A host of A-list bands hit the road this year, and nearly every one played a show in the area. Bruce Springsteen and the E Street Band made a triumphant return to Baltimore, playing the 1st Mariner Arena for the first time since 1973, when they opened for Chicago. Springsteen led the band through an electric set that lasted nearly 3 1/2 hours. Frank Remesch, 1st Mariner's general manager, had tried for years to get The Boss to come back to Baltimore. When Springsteen finally returned to the old arena, in front of an audience of 14,839, Remesch said it was a religious experience.

Will someone please explain why former Obama cabinet members like Leon Panetta and Hillary Clinton feel they have tell the world about things that make him look incompetent? How does this do anything to improve on the image of our country around the world, and why does this kind of behavior have to occur just after such people quit or resign? Why can't they at least wait until the president is out of office, as officials formerly did? A similar problem afflicted President George W. Bush, where he was made to look like the village idiot by the liberal media.

I met George Steinbrenner when I was a Yankee fan and he went to Cleveland Indians games and he was not The Boss. He was a Williams College kid from Cleveland, but bubbling with high-pitched enthusiasm even then more than a half century ago. He ran track and helped edit a college newspaper in my hometown in Massachusetts. I was the sports editor of our high school paper, The Spirit, with my own cliché-stuffed column called "Toeing the Rubber." This all came back when I learned that Mr. Steinbrenner, the man who made the New York Yankees great once again — and then again — died at 80 of a heart attack last week at his home in Tampa.

And you can't make this stuff up.  On Language Log  today there is a link to an article in The Salt Lake Tribune  on the firing of an instructor at a school teaching English as a second language. Tim Torkildson says that his boss at Nomen Global Language Center, Clarke Woodger, discharged him for writing a blog post on homophones. The explanation Mr. Torkildson says Mr. Woodger gave: "Now our school is going to be associated with homosexuality. " Having worked with bosses who assumed that everyone else was a dumb as they were, I have no difficulty crediting this account.  A commenter at Language Log  wonders whether English might prove to have a larger number of homophones.

Someone close to you is bossy. He/she is always telling you how you should do things. You're an adult, capable of making your own choices. You resent this bossy interference! But you usually go along with The Boss, because, when you have told him to butt out, it ended in arguments.Going along with a pushy person is your first mistake. Arguing with him is your second. In either case, it only enables him to become even more strong-minded.What are you supposed to do, move to Canada to get away from him?

I CAN'T REMEMBER exactly when we started calling my father The Boss, but I'll never forget why. His authoritarian style left no question as to who was in charge at our house. He could make me feel like I was being cross-examined in court, especially if I espoused ideas that differed from his. I had to be well-prepared and have my facts straight. Even if I won a debate, I didn't care; I was just thankful it was over. As a result, today I am able to hold my own with anyone.Admittedly, The Boss made a lot of mistakes and was wrong about a lot of things.

New NBA commissioner Adam Silver apparently is not one to waste words, or the opportunity to show who's boss. He certainly wasted no time upending all the experts and legal analysts who were predicting that he would take a measured approach to punishing Los Angeles Clippers owner Donald Sterling for the caught-on-tape comments about African Americans that sparked a painful new national debate on race in America. Silver walked up to that podium in midtown Manhattan on Tuesday afternoon and needed just a couple of minutes to express the NBA's righteous outrage and say that he was banning Sterling from the league for life while initiating a process that he believes will compel Sterling to sell his team.

It's possible that Matthew Olshan didn't fully become a writer until the day that his future boss ordered him to dig a ditch. On that day in the late 1980s, the boss, a carpenter, eyed the short kid with the soft hands. He saw a young man with no experience in the building trades, a new degree from Harvard University and a bewildering mix of aspirations that combined literature and woodworking. The older man understandably was skeptical. "Show up tomorrow and we'll see how you do," he told Olshan.

Earlier today, Robert of Cross Keys, a longtime reader here at Wordville, made this request on Facebook: "I would love to know the secret of making edits quickly and decisively, so that I may share it with my bosses who live to re-edit. If my office were a newsroom, we would still be tweaking the story of the Hindenburg disaster, while the piece on Kennedy's assassination would remain in draft form. " Hoping the Fellowship of the Rim will forgive me for betraying the secrets of the craft: Editing is like sculpting Michelangelo's David : You take a chunk of marble and chisel away everything that isn't David.

Years ago, a friend of mine worked at a small newspaper that gave out the craziest Christmas bonuses I'd ever heard of: The paper was owned by a cattleman who at the end of every year would slaughter one of his steers, and employees would line up in the parking lot to get packages of beef. I don't know if it was the biblical, fatted-calf aspect of it, or the way everyone lined up like extras in a production of “Oliver!” - “Please, Sir, I want some more” - but I just found this endlessly hysterical.

Howard magazine launched its first-ever Howard County's Favorite Pet contest this spring. More than 1,600 votes were cast. From a field of 62 dogs and cats, Boss, a Yorkie Poo, was named top dog. About Boss Boss is a 2-year-old Yorkie Poo (Yorkshire Terrier and Poodle mix). His daily schedule is a busy one -- first playing, then playing some more. During walks, he takes every opportunity to chase squirrels and birds. He also enjoys playing “Wiggle Worm,” a game he invented in which he wiggles around on his back while being tickled by his doting owners, Phyllis Smith and Stephen Mitchell.

In an aircraft hangar in Southern Maryland, a group of bosses dressed in slacks and polo shirts clustered around an RQ-7B Shadow unmanned aircraft. Like excited schoolchildren, they peppered a Maryland National Guardsman with questions: How much does it cost? How far can it fly? Has one ever been lost? The Maryland National Guard flew the group aboard a C-27 to Webster Field here in St. Mary's County last week to thank the bosses for employing guardsmen and reservists, part-time troops who can be called up for lengthy missions abroad.
