Recently, some in the media have promoted the idea that the $85 billion sequestration cuts triggered on March 1 aren't causing drastic effects. CNN called the cuts "not as bad as advertised," and a Washington Post report found the cuts less "scary" than predicted. Tell that to the 46,000 Department of Defense employees in Maryland and another 103,000 in the Capitol Region who are being furloughed, resulting in up to a 20 percent reduction in weekly pay through the rest of the fiscal year.

Among the knives, real and toy pistols, and other dangerous weapons seized at BWI Marshall Airport, this one stood out: A curving 7-inch arc of jagged teeth with a brass knuckle-style grip. A blogger for the Transportation Security Administration coined the nickname "debrainer" as he enshrined the nasty-looking utensil in the TSA's informal hall of fame. That's the weirdest thing officers said they have confiscated in recent months from carry-on baggage at Baltimore-Washington International Thurgood Marshall Airport, used by more than 22.2 million passengers last year.

Let's not mince words. When I heard that former Black Panther misleader Eldridge Cleaver had died last week, my immediate reaction was, "Damn! Stupid Negro died 30 years too late!"Of course, that's not very nice. When someone dies, you're supposed to say all the smarmy, heartwarming, touchy-feely things that make us all fuzzy inside. Sorry, I can't do it for Cleaver, who'll forever be at the top of my "Least Favorite Panther" List.Cleaver never met a profane word he didn't like. In an age when leftists had an inflated sense of self-importance, Cleaver racked up frequent-flier miles on Ego Trip Airlines.

"My aim," writes Richard Cleaver in an artist's statement accompanying his show at Knight Gomez, "is to create highly textured, excessively ornamented images that evoke theatrical sets or religious altars and shrines." And he does.His constructions, which have about them the aura of obsessiveness, are densely layered, made of everything from screws to screens to clock parts, and are replete with symbolism. They are reliquary-like; they draw the viewer in through a profusion of bits and pieces of things to an at least symbolically central image, often the representation of one or more faces.

CHILDHOOD IN small towns and the suburbs was never quite as innocent as we tend to remember. And yet, despite the heartaches that go along with growing up any place, any time, many who were children in places like Howard or Carroll counties 15 or 25 years ago lived a life not all that different from television's Opie or Beaver Cleaver. Families ate dinner together. School violence meant a playground fistfight, not Eddie Haskell threatening the teacher with a steak knife.Times have changed.

Eldridge Cleaver missed his chance at martyrdom. If he had died in the 1968 shootout with Oakland police, he would probably have become a revered icon.We'd forever see him in his glory, a beautiful black man staring out from the cover of "Soul on Ice," a revolutionary wearing a black leather jacket and shades, an uncompromising intellectual standing beside bullet-riddled posters of himself and Huey P. Newton.That didn't happen. Bobby Hutton, 17, died in the shootout April 6, 1968. Cleaver went on to run for president and later jump bail.

Amy Cleaver has a photograph to remind her of her first hunting trip. In the picture, her head and torso are framed by the antlers of a moose she had taken at 85 yards -- which, believe it or not, was something of a long shot from the outset.Cleaver is an 18-year-old from Millersville in Anne Arundel County. The moose is an 850-pounder bagged in northern Maine.Now, 85 yards is not a long shot with a rifle, even for a novice. But the odds of Cleaver having the opportunity to make the kill were somewhat prohibitive.

Richard Cleaver thinks of himself as a gatherer - of thoughts, feelings, memories, histories, dreams, stories and myths, perspectives and materials. Eventually, these things become part of extraordinary, minutely detailed sculptures of people, animals and buildings, painstakingly fashioned from clay and adorned with seed pearls, foil, egg shells, oil paint, wire, cloth, gold leaf, wood and metal. "It's a way of picking my brain, of rummaging through what's in my head," says Cleaver. More than 100 of Cleaver's magical clay figures can be seen in Gathering at the Latrobe Spring House, an amazing exhibition that opens today at the Baltimore Museum of Art as part of Tour de Clay, the city's six-week festival of the ceramic arts.

Funny" combines easily with many qualities: "horrifying" and "erotic" come to mind. To mix "funny" and "soggy," though, takes the likes of Charlie Chaplin, and for all her pathos and bumbling wit, Bridget Jones is no Little Tramp. The sequel to Bridget Jones's Diary, the 2001 hit about a lovelorn Londoner, Bridget Jones: The Edge of Reason boasts a few genuinely funny moments, yet on the whole seems all wet. Without the crutch of Jane Austen's Pride and Prejudice - the inspiration for the first film and its source book - director Beeban Kidron and screenwriters Andrew Davies, Richard Curtis, Adam Brooks and Helen Fielding (the author of both Bridget Jones novels)
