David R. Brinkley has no problem with being called an establishment Republican. He's the party's leader in the Maryland Senate, a master of the state budget process and a pragmatist adept at bringing tax dollars back from Democratic-dominated Annapolis to Frederick and Carroll counties. But the 20-year lawmaker is struggling to beat back an aggressive challenge from the tea party wing of the GOP. Del. Michael J. Hough contends that Brinkley is not ideologically pure enough for the General Assembly's 4th District.

The Maryland Senate gave preliminary approval Wednesday to a $38.9 billion state budget that includes no new taxes while giving state workers a 2 percent cost-of-living raise. It is slightly leaner than the governor proposed. The spending plan, due for a final Senate vote Thursday, increases overall expenditures by 3 percent over the current year, but less than the $39.2 billion budget Gov. Martin O'Malley proposed for fiscal 2015. When the measure clears the Senate, it will go to the House of Delegates, which is likely to adopt its own changes.

State Senate Minority Leader David R. Brinkley and House Minority Leader Anthony J. O'Donnell are co-chairmen of Fred Thompson's presidential campaign in Maryland, according to a statement released yesterday by the campaign. Their endorsements of the former Law and Order star, also a one-time Tennessee senator, represent a break with former Republican Gov. Robert L. Ehrlich Jr., who has endorsed former New York Mayor Rudolph W. Giuliani's bid. Ehrlich, still the state's leading Republican figure, is raising money for Giuliani in Maryland and traveled to New Hampshire to stump for him. Thompson "is the mainstream conservative in this race, and I think he has a very solid record that has not evolved over time but is very consistent," O'Donnell said.

It's funny how a lot of anniversary shows just happen to pop up in November, February or May -- key ratings periods when audiences are being measured to set future advertising rates.There is, though, a true TV anniversary this weekend, and it's one that is worth a moment or two of reflection.On Nov. 15, 1981, ABC News introduced a new Sunday morning public affairs program, "This Week With David Brinkley." It was different -- dramatically different -- from NBC's "Meet the Press" and the other more ponderous Sunday-morning interview shows.

What's so wrong with palm oil, from the palm trees that bear fruit, not coconuts? Well, if you listen to environmentalists and animal-rights advocates along with nutrition and health experts, they'll tell you it's something close to poison. Once the United States and other Western countries began condemning and banning trans-fat oils a few years ago, palm oil became a popular substitute. You can find it in shampoo, lipstick, soap and a host of snack and other foods, including some ketchups, margarine, chewing gum, candy bars and cooking oil. Oil-palm trees, as they're called, are grown primarily in Indonesia and Malaysia, and that's where the problems begin.

You should probably sit down before you read this. Syria has put its name up for membership on the United Nations Human Rights Council, and it will most likely win a seat. Yes, Syria, the state that has slaughtered close to 15,000 of its own people over the last 16 months, including hundreds of women and children. It's on track to take a seat on the United Nations body whose mission is to uphold human rights around the world. The United States happened to find Syria's name on a roster of candidates.

Charles H. Smelser, a revered former state senator who represented Carroll, Frederick and part of Howard counties, and had fought in World War II, died of cancer Thursday at his Union Bridge home. He was 88. A newspaper article once called him "the embodiment of the citizen-legislator - a farmer for nine months, a legislator for three." When Mr. Smelser, a Democrat, announced in 1994 that he would retire from the state Senate, a Sun editorial said, "For a state bureaucrat who failed to justify a budget request at a hearing, Sen. Charles H. 'Buck' Smelser could be the 'meanest man on the face of the earth,' as one reporter once jokingly referred to him. But for a constituent seeking help on a personal problem or a legislative matter, Mr. Smelser couldn't be more attentive or courtly - or caring."
