What's the reason for the tempest in the teapot of Hillary and Bill Clinton's personal finances? It can't be about how much money they have. Wealth has never disqualified someone from high office. Several of the nation's greatest presidents, who came to office with vast fortunes -- John F. Kennedy, Franklin D. Roosevelt and his fifth cousin, Teddy -- notably improved the lives of ordinary Americans. The tempest can't be about Hillary Clinton's veracity. It may have been a stretch for her to say she and her husband were "dead broke" when they left the White House, as she told ABC's Diane Sawyer.

Even for the most avid yogi, doing a handstand or crow pose is inherently different when you are hanging more than a foot above the floor from a series of fabric slings. As the yoga craze has taken off across the U.S., quirky, modified classes such as hot yoga - practicing in a room heated to 95 degrees - or even naked yoga have gained cult-like followings. But a small aerial yoga class at The Arena Club in Bel Air might have them all beat with muscle lengthening, strength training and just plain fun. “It brings freedom back into the body,” aerial yoga instructor Kim DeAngelis says after a recent class.

Over the last six years, enrollment in Advance Placement testing across Harford County Public Schools has increased, but that increase has not necessarily translated into more students passing the exams. Students who pass Advanced Placement exams are afforded by many colleges and universities the option of skipping a comparable college level course, or receiving college credit for the course or both, so AP programs are often regarded as giving college-bound high school students a jump on collegiate academics.

At the end of their Super Bowl XLVII-winning season, the Ravens were feeling pretty good about their 2012 draft class. Their first pick, strong-side linebacker Courtney Upshaw , who was taken early in the second round, played in all 16 games and started nine, made 55 tackles and 1 1/2 sacks and forced a fumble in the Super Bowl that led to a second-quarter touchdown drive for the Ravens. Second-rounder Kelechi Osemele started all 16 regular-season games at right tackle and then moved to left guard, where he was dominant at times during the Ravens' Super Bowl run. Third-round selection Bernard Pierce , Ray Rice's primary backup at running back, also picked up his game in the playoffs, averaging 5.2 yards per carry after a regular season in which he gained 532 yards and scored a touchdown.

A few weeks ago I was visited in my office by the chairman of one of the country's biggest high-tech firms. He wanted to talk about the causes and consequences of widening inequality and the shrinking middle class, and what to do about it. I asked him why he was concerned. "Because the American middle class is the core of our customer base," he said. "If they can't afford our products in the years ahead, we're in deep trouble. " I'm hearing the same refrain these days from a growing number of business leaders.

For understandable reasons, the IRS scandal has largely focused on the political question of whether the White House deliberately targeted opponents. To date there's no evidence that it did. That's good for the president, but it may not be good for the country, because if the administration didn't target opponents, that would mean the IRS has become corrupt all on its own. In 1939, Bruno Rizzi, a largely forgotten communist intellectual, wrote a hugely controversial book, "The Bureaucratization of the World.

Tucked amid the woods of northern Baltimore County is one of Maryland's natural gems - the Big Gunpowder Falls, a nationally renowned trout stream that draws anglers from far and wide to try their skills and luck in the cold, rushing water. But some fishermen and fishing guides say they're having a harder time getting at this prized outdoor resource - though it's publicly accessible in Gunpowder Falls State Park - because of unusually heavy river flows that make it hard to fish or even stand at times in the water.
