You might suspect some strange jinx, or wonder if the third time's the harm. But the Baltimore Symphony Orchestra is taking a rash of high-profile artist cancellations in stride. On July 29 came the news that actor/singer and star of Showtime's "Homeland" Mandy Patinkin had withdrawn from his BSO SuperPops program scheduled for January "due to a schedule conflict. " He would be replaced by "Seinfeld" veteran Jason Alexander. On Sept. 15, three days before the opening night of the season, the orchestra announced that Baltimore's own Hilary Hahn would not be on hand to play Beethoven's Violin Concerto as planned because the popular artist needed "to recover fully from a muscle strain.

Fight fodder:LAS VEGAS - Perhaps Riddick Bowe was guilty of slight overstatement when he informed, "I'm the new boss in town."The unbeaten heavyweight, who now makes his home in Fort Washington, had been impressive in blasting out Bert Cooper in two rounds. But he was speaking immediately after Evander Holyfield had starched Buster Douglas and taken the heavyweight crown.He must have realized the foolishness of his statement, because he amended it to read, "I am definitely one of the top heavyweights to contend with.

LAS VEGAS -- In the sixth round of his inspiring heavyweight battle with Evander Holyfield at Caesars Palace on Saturday night, Riddick Bowe suddenly found himself in a unique position, flat on his back for the first time in his professional career with referee Joe Cortez counting over him.Asked what his thoughts were in this perilous moment, "Big Daddy" Bowe unleashed a loud laugh. "I said to myself, 'This ain't right!' "It might have been the only thing wrong about this electrifying fight that kept a crowd of 12,000 in a constant uproar until a gallant Holyfield was declared out on his feet after 58 seconds of Round 8.After seven furious rounds of fighting that stoked the cold desert air, Bowe trailed on all three scorecards, 66-65.

NEW YORK -- Larry Holmes, wearing a patch over his right eye, almost secured a heavyweight title fight yesterday when Riddick Bowe's manager apparently overplayed his hand with negotiators for Evander Holyfield.But Rock Newman, who admitted he "spent the entire day telling people we weren't going to do the deal," called Dan Duva, who with Shelly Finkel forms Holyfield's management team, last night to tell him he had reconsidered. The Holyfield camp will decide this weekend between Holmes and Bowe for the champion's next $20 million payday, in late May or early June.

LAS VEGAS -- Riddick Bowe and unbeaten Jorge Gonzalez, who are scheduled to fight for Bowe's World Boxing Organization title at the MGM Grand on June 17, staged a lively preview when a near brawl occurred during a news conference in a hotel restaurant.The animosity between the two fighters dates to the 1987 Pan American Games in Indianapolis, when Gonzalez, representing Cuba, outpointed Bowe, 3-2.When Gonzalez saw Bowe enter the room for a television interview yesterday, he charged the Maryland-based fighter, shoving Bowe aide Bernard Brooks out of the way. When Bowe came to his defense, Gonzalez hurled ice from a glass into Bowe's face.

CARDIFF, Wales -- Apparently International Boxing Federation and World Boxing Association heavyweight champion Riddick Bowe is facing a weighty problem as he prepares for his Nov. 6 rematch with former champion Evander Holyfield.One has to consider the source on such matters as a heavyweight's expansive waistline, but here is what former Sugar Ray Leonard associate Ollie Dunlop said last week concerning Bowe's physique."Bowe looked like a rhino before he left for his training camp," said Dunlop, who lives near Bowe outside Washington.

If you're in the mood for some science fiction silliness, "The Intergalactic Nemesis: A Live-Action Graphic Novel" promises to keep you laughing on Friday, June 20, at 8 p.m. in the Jim Rouse Theatre at Wilde Lake. This Columbia Festival of the Arts presentation combines aspects of 1930s-style radio dramas with comic book art. Like such movies as "Star Wars" and "Raiders of the Lost Ark," this theatrical show looks to the campy science fantasy and adventure stories of that earlier era for its inspiration.

There he goes again. At a press conference in Brussels Thursday, President Obama was asked if he was surprised by the controversy over his decision to trade Bowe Bergdahl for five high-ranking Taliban leaders. His response was vintage Barack Obama: "I'm never surprised by controversies that are whipped up in Washington. " Thus establishing from the start that he considers the controversy to be a kind of partisan farce, he proceeded to rebut criticisms virtually no one has made.

Like most Americans, the Ehrlichs celebrated the return of a captured U.S. soldier from Afghanistan. What parent would not possess a degree of empathy for the parents of Army Sgt. Bowe Bergdahl, held by the Taliban since June 30, 2009? A positive aspect of a returned U.S. soldier is the notion that the U.S. military, the greatest force for good on planet Earth, recognizes its obligation to rescue its own. It's what a civilized, just nation does in consideration of the risk assumed by its young soldiers.

Recently, I helped found Millennial Maryland, a group that advocates a different vision for both Maryland and the Republican Party. That vision includes an understanding of the wider world, the embrace of civility and the constant pursuit of intellectual knowledge. Allow me to take this moment to underscore why these things matter. On his blog Monday, Allen West, retired U.S. Army lieutenant colonel and former Florida GOP congressman, posted a video of Bob Bergdahl, the father of recovered POW and potential deserter Bowe Bergdahl.

The release Saturday of Army Sgt. Bowe Bergdahl after five years as a prisoner of the Taliban in Afghanistan and Pakistan surely marked a jubilant moment for his family and friends in Boise, Idaho. Sgt. Bergdahl went missing from his unit in 2009 under circumstances that remain unclear, and he was captured by Taliban six months into his first tour of duty in Afghanistan. He was the last American POW to remain unaccounted for as the U.S. prepares to wind down combat operations there next year and to withdraw all but a token military force by the end of 2016.

LAS VEGAS -- The boos over how Riddick Bowe's last fight ended barely had subsided when the first blows were struck in his next."He's too slow, too easy to hit," said George Benton, Evander Holyfield's trainer, shaking his head after Bowe's seventh-round TKO over Pierre Coetzer, a South African version of George Chuvalo, at the Mirage on Saturday night.It was a rousing bout, but many in the crowd of 4,000 were unhappy because another low blow by Bowe, who had a point deducted in the sixth round, set up the winning barrage that forced referee Mills Lane to stop the bout at 2:59 of the seventh.

NEW YORK -- The word spread last week all the way down to Mississippi that Riddick "Big Daddy" Bowe had spread -- around the tummy.Some cynics in a tiny Gulf Coast watering hole even suggested (( Bowe drop "Daddy" from his nickname and just call himself "Big."So it was fitting that the heavyweight champion -- on advice from his attorney, the honorable Milton Chwasky -- come to the down-home cookin' capital, Sylvia's on 126th and Lenox Avenue, yesterday to officially announce his Nov. 6 title rematch against Evander Holyfield at Caesars Palace in Las Vegas.

It is obvious that the decision of the superintendent of the U.S. Naval Academy to court-martial two of the midshipmen charged with having sex with an irresponsible drunk (who The Sun refuses to identify while having no qualms about destroying the reputation of those charged) was influenced by the preposterous lawsuit filed by the woman's attorney, the intent of which was clearly just that ("Two former Navy football players face court-martial in alleged sexual assault," Oct. 10). This, despite a contrary recommendation by the judge who heard the eight-day case and had the opportunity to evaluate the credibility of the witnesses and the value of their sworn testimony.
