Two officials favored Carbajal by 97-92, while the third gave him a 97-93 vote.

People with sight seem fixated on the mouse as an aid to blind computer users. But Richard Ring and Curtis Chong say those who can see are looking in the wrong direction. "We get a lot farther with the keyboard," says Ring, who tests hardware and software at the National Federation of the Blind's technology center. Chong, the NFB's technology director, and Ring, supervisor of the International Braille and Technology Center for the Blind, are both blind and spend their days making side-by-side comparisons of devices and programs designed to help others who can't see. On the second floor of a warehouse on Johnson Street in South Baltimore, they rate the voices of screen-readers that translate written text displayed on a monitor, measure the speed of Braille printers (called embossers)

`The Idiots' 1/2 Grace Quek is a 27-year-old woman who, in 1995, using the pseudonym Annabel Chong (a combination of Edgar Allan Poe's "Annabel Lee" and comedian Tommy Chong), earned her 15 minutes of fame by having sex with 251 men in 10 hours - apparently a world record. Quek's sojourn to the outer limits of sex became a monster-selling video, landed her a guest spot on "The Jerry Springer Show" and even got her into a debate at Cambridge University. She actively participated in making "Sex: The Annabel Chong Story," documentary filmmaker Gough Lewis' unflinching but ultimately unenlightening attempt at figuring out just what she was thinking.

We're are realizing how vulnerable we are, even in the daytime. " While making a stop in an unmarked box truck about 3 p.m. Tuesday at the Erdman Shopping Center in Belair-Edison, the 55-year-old was shot in the chest.

13. “Fly Solo” (Produced by E. Dan) The album’s most shallow, out-of-place party song has Wiz feebly attempting a Sublime-lite jam, which would seem ideal for a barbecue or frat party until you realize there’s hundreds of better shimmering, “feel good” tracks out there (including Sublime). “Fly Solo” immediately recalls Shwayze, the Malibu, Calif., bro-duo of Aaron “Shwayze” Smith and Cisco Adler that had their own MTV reality show, “Buzzin’.” Their schlocky, fun-in-the-sun songs were silly attempts at putting carefree beach life to tape, and E. Dan’s beat would sound at home on a Shwayze disc, with its prominent acoustic guitar and summery groove.

The marijuana smoke filled the Baltimore rowhouse in a "haze" that "engulfed" the four people sitting around the kitchen table, all of them within arm's reach of the smoldering remains of a "blunt" in an ashtray. One of the men appeared "groovy" and "relaxed" and was "just going with the program. " It was, the state's highest court said in a ruling issued Friday, "reminiscent of a scene from a Cheech & Chong movie. " Baltimore police had burst into the Lanvale Street rowhouse on Dec. 6, 2006, and arrested the men at the table, including Clavon Smith, who police said also had 15 small bags of marijuana in the pocket of his black leather jacket, which was hanging from the back of a chair.

Tommy Chong believes he got busted not for being a stoner but for having a public persona as a stoner. Authorities arrested the latter half of the comedy duo Cheech and Chong in February 2003. He was charged with selling drug paraphernalia - specifically, a bong with his picture on it - and shipping it across state lines. He served a nine-month prison term that ended in July. Calling the charge a "commerce technicality," Chong said he believes the government went after him because of his counterculture rep, which he owes to the six gold comedy albums he recorded with Cheech Marin and to their series of pot-fueled movies, starting with Up in Smoke in the '70s.

ANNAPOLIS -- A former Fort Meade stockade guard convicted last April of murdering a Meade Senior High School sophomore was granted a new trial yesterday because he was not allowed to introduce evidence suggesting he had no motive to commit the crime.Excluding that evidence amounted to denying Sgt. Jessie Jackson, 27, a fair trial, the Court of Special Appeals ruled.Prosecutors charged that Sergeant Jackson shot Sun Young Chong, 15, and tossed a Molotov cocktail at her family's home in Pioneer City in November 1989 in an attempt to frighten the girl's mother, Suk Cha Chong, out of pressing robbery and assault charges against him through the Army.

This is another pot story starring Tommy Chong. So it should be funny. Not to U.S. Attorney General John Ashcroft, who announced dozens of indictments under "Operation Pipe Dreams" in February. Not to Mary Beth Buchanan, U.S. attorney for the Western District of Pennsylvania, who heads Ashcroft's advisory committee and turned up in court in Pittsburgh to personally accept Chong's guilty plea. Not to Assistant U.S. District Attorney Mary Houghton, who prosecuted the case. And definitely not to Chong, who will be spending the next nine months in federal prison.
