She dressed up as a bumblebee and headed for Annapolis.Sprows stood on the Eastport side of the Eastport Bridge at 8 a.m. with nine other women in homemade bumblebee suits. They hoisted campaign signs for State's Attorney Frank L. Weathersbee, who was challenged by Republican Timothy D. Murnane. They waved at passing cars. When car horns honked the bees went, "Wooooooo-ooooooh."Sprows said they'd been at this since last Saturday, staking out the county's big intersections, upholding the good American political tradition of silly headgear.

On NPR , Frank Deford talks about Bud Selig's decision to add an extra wild card team to each league this season , and the effect it's having on the postseason chances for several teams, including the Orioles . Deford makes note of something that I've heard a lot recently on sports talk programs around the area -- the Orioles are somehow 10 games over .500 even though they have been outscored by a large margin and they're among the league's...

Here's the difference between Paul Day and the rest of the world: Where most people see a broken-down ATV on the side of an interstate, Day sees a Transformer. Not only does he see it, but he turns it into one. Which is why, unlike the average citizen, he's an award-winning creator of superhero costumes. "Yeah, I found parts of Bumblebee on the side of I-95," says Day, 45, whose take on the most outgoing of the Transformers, that alien race that can turn themselves into motor vehicles, won 2009's inaugural Baltimore Comic-Con costume contest.

KISSIMMEE, Fla. -- In brainstorming for ways to advertise the 1991 Houston Astros, the club's marketing department came up with a bumblebee. Aerodynamically, the bumblebee should not be able to fly.Others campaigns feature a Volkswagen beetle, man's walk on the moon, the Spirit of St. Louis and Columbus' three ships. Note the trend."Our basic message is that there have been plenty of things succeed which people thought were unaccomplishable," said Ted Haracz, the Astros' vice president of marketing.

Washington. -- I was on a national radio talk show Tuesday, expecting to plug a new book and engage in a bit of punditry about where President Clinton is going in his first 100 days. I found that people calling in from across the land wanted to talk almost exclusively about Zoe E. Baird, the nominee to serve as Mr. Clinton's attorney general.''She broke the law,'' I heard over and over from people screaming that she is thus unfit to serve as the top law-enforcement officer in America.I was shocked, because I had been downplaying the fact that Ms. Baird did break a rarely enforced law by hiring two illegal immigrants to work for her as babysitter and part-time driver.

So is a $15 can of gourmet tuna really better than a $1.89 can of Bumblebee? We asked a panel of food experts: C.J. Gabrielson, sous-chef at McCormick & Schmick's Seafood Restaurant; Nick Hoang, corporate sushi chef for Red Coral restaurant; Elizabeth Large, The Sun's restaurant critic; and Rob Kasper, The Sun's food columnist. They sampled Conservas Alegria bonita tuna in olive oil from Dean & Deluca, Dave's albacore tuna in olive oil from Whole Foods Market, Ortiz bonito tuna in olive oil from Zingerman's and Bumblebee's albacore tuna in oil. The verdict: it depends on what you want to do with the tuna.

In the 40 years between 1966 and 2006, the Republican Party rose from a marginalized minority party into a national governing majority. Though the GOP made significant gains among white Catholics, suburban women and other slivers of the population, it was the conversion of white Southerners and the somewhat-overlapping mobilization of evangelicals that propelled what Karl Rove has called the Republicans' "rolling realignment." For most of the past four decades, however, national Republicans enjoyed the electoral benefits of their Southern, evangelized base without paying much of a political price.
