Del. Rudolph C. Cane, the first and so far only African-American to represent an Eastern Shore district in the General Assembly, has dropped his bid for re-election. Cane, 79, withdrew his candidacy for the Democratic nomination in his district Wednesday, leaving Wicomico County Councilwoman Sheree Sample-Hughes as the only candidate of either party. The four-term Democrat was first elected to the House in 1998 -- ending a long struggle for an African-American seat on the Shore.

Our politicians, an often ill-respected lot, diminish themselves further when they serve up nonsensical nostrums such as caning.State Del. Clarence Davis, an East Baltimore Democrat, has submitted legislation that would permit the state to whack adolescents older than 14 with a rattan stick when they are convicted of vandalism. The idea was hatched in the controversy of a year ago when an American teen, Michael Fay, was caned in Singapore after being convicted of property destruction there.

But he departed a little more than a week before the 90-day legislative session ends because he's scheduled to have back surgery on Monday.

USING A telephone pole as a battering ram, the mob broke into the Somerset County jail and took George Armwood. They forced a noose around his neck and dragged him through the streets. He was hanged from an oak tree along Princess Anne's main road and his body set on fire. He was a 28-year-old black man lynched on Oct. 18, 1933, for allegedly attacking a 71-year-old white woman. Less than 12 miles away, H. Webster Cane Sr. took notice and never forgot. In the years that followed, he made sure his young boys knew exactly what had happened that fateful day. The lesson, he told them, was this: The Eastern Shore is a dangerous place for a black man. But he also told them that their day would come, to not lose hope, to never think themselves less than a white man and to take advantage of what opportunities came.

In another sign of Baltimore's diminishing influence in Annapolis, a second-term Eastern Shore delegate defeated longtime city Del. Clarence Davis in the race for chairman of the Legislative Black Caucus. The election of Del. Rudolph C. Cane, who represents Dorchester and Wicomico counties, ends an unwritten but long-held tradition within the black caucus of alternating the chairmanship between Baltimore and Prince George's County, the jurisdictions where the overwhelming majority of the 43 African-American senators and delegates live.

Both Maryland and Miami lost close games at home to ranked teams Saturday, but their respective coaches reacted differently to the defeats as the teams prepared to play each other Wednesday night in College Park. Mark Turgeon, whose Terps lost 83-79 to No. 20 Pittsburgh , thought his team played better against the Panthers than they did in losing at North Carolina State on Monday. In that game, Maryland led by nine at haltime and by 11 points early in the second half. Turgeon was pleased by the offensive progress he thought his team had made against one of the league's better defensive teams, shooting 48 percent from the field, scoring 20 more points than it had in a loss at Pittsburgh on Jan. 6, going to the free throw line 30 times.

Last October, I started therapy. Not physical or psychotherapy but Orientation and Mobility (O&M) therapy. O&M is when a person with a visual impairment learns skills for independent travel, including how to use a white cane. October is Blindness Awareness Month, and I'd like to share my experience with you. Blindness is not an absolute. Light perception, peripheral and central vision, and blind spots differ from person to person. I live in the gray space of low vision between the light of sight and the darkness of full blindness.

Let me start this post by saying that Sam absolutely hates to go shopping! In fact, I typically have to bribe him with food just to get him to consider it. So needless to say, the thought of going shopping for suits for the wedding was harder than pulling teeth. But we did it, and we survived. And, we went out to eat after. Because we want to keep things true to who we are in real life (not just playing dress up for a day), we decided together that tuxedos were out of the question.

Sunday's matinee against the Carolina Hurricanes won't go down as one of the more complete or perfect performances by the Washington Capitals this year. In fact, there were few moments at Verizon Center where they seemed firmly in control of the contest, but all that truly matters is that the Capitals found a way to win. Boosted by Dmitry Orlov's first NHL goal, which stood as the game-winner, and a 43-save outing by Tomas Vokoun, the Capitals claimed a 2-1 win over Carolina that catapulted them to first place in the Southeast Division and third in the Eastern Conference.
