In my April 1st preview of Amy Schumer's second season, I wrote about a sketch she does with Josh Charles spoofing Aaron Sorkin's TV style. "A double Baltimore hit: On April 15, Josh Charles guests stars, and he's terrific as one of Schumer's co-workers in a fast food restaurant," I wrote. "The co-stars alone would make this 30 minutes not to be missed on Tuesday nights this spring. " The piece aired last night with Charles and Schumer bringing trademark Sorkin urgency, anger, sexual frustration and angst to life in this wickedly clever clip.

Did you read the latest in the newspaper? How often have we said that? Computers are wonderful sources of information, but we still can't discount the value of the printed pages. Someone approached us recently with the fact that no newspapers are printed in Harford County now. Yes, that is true, and it is a loss of a great legacy in Harford communities. But we do still have our local newspapers, but they are printed by The Sun in Baltimore now. Fortunately, Aberdeen still has news coverage in The Record and The Aegis.

Q. Maybe I'm going crazy, but it seems as if little bits of leaves and twigs are walking around my evergreen shrubs. I do have a bagworm problem. Are these walking things that look like plant debris related to the bagworm bags?A. Yes, they are. The bagworm larvae that hatched this spring from last year's bags are actively feeding now. They're using the new silken bags -- covered with plant debris -- for protection.For minor infestation, handpick and destroy the bags. Apply the microbial insecticide B.t. (Bacillus thuringiensis)

Letter writer Jonathan Reidy quoted my testimony before the Senate Judiciary Committee out of context ("High-capacity magazines mean more stray bullets," Feb. 11). I would like to correct the record. I told the committee that magazine capacity was a matter of personal choice regarding my ability to protect myself and my family. We are currently limited to 20-round magazines in Maryland, yet only the law-abiding are likely to follow that restriction. After my testimony was complete, one of the senators asked me if I thought fully automatic weapons were OK on the street.

After hyping it up on Twitter for the past week, rising Baltimore rapper Starrz debuted his new video, as promised, late last night. The clip is for the more-serious "American Nightmare" track from last year's "Best Mixtape Ever" project. The video, which features Baltimore R&B singer Paula Campbell , was shot last week in West Baltimore at ConneXions School for the Arts (2801 N. Dukeland St.) and directed by Todd "Wiz" Dorsey . "American Nightmare," which was produced by J. Oliver , finds Starrz is in storyteller mode, making this track immediately stand out from his well-received mixtape.

Julian Assange, the peripatetic and elusive founder of the whistleblower web site Wikileaks, put himself at the center of a fine bit of political theater over the weekend when he used his fugitive status at the Ecuadorean embassy in London to demand the U.S. cease persecuting those who seek to hold governments accountable. Having stage managed a diplomatic crisis between Britain and Ecuador that threatens to rupture relations between the two countries, Mr. Assange is milking the incident for all it's worth, but it remains to be seen whether that will be enough to get him out of the jam he's in. Mr. Assange had been living in London for the last two years after fleeing Sweden to avoid being questioned about two women who claim he raped them.

By Dave Gilmore, @dave_gilmore It's impossible to judge quality from gameplay clips, cinematic trailers and even sometimes playable demos. What can be judged though, is how excited one is to simply play the game. Now that another year of E3 has wrapped up, we know a lot more about some of the late 2012 and 2013 and beyond games we've been hearing only rumors about so far. Here are the five games from E3 we're most excited to play as of this moment. "Assassin's Creed 3" Everything about "AC3" so far has been encouraging, but the new clips at this week's show blew the doors off expectations for October's release.

News Roundup •••• Bethesda released their trailer for the “Dawnguard” expansion to “Skyrim,” and like everything in the last three years, it's about vampires. Anything that breathes new life into “Skyrim” is welcome, because even fantastic games get stale when you play them for 250 hours. Not that they have a way to keep track of that. Do they? [ YouTube ] •••• EA has confirmed “Dead Space 3” is real and will be announced next week at E3. This is kind of one of those “everyone already knew this but it's still exciting nonetheless” tidbits.

With 25 goals in two NCAA tournament games, No. 4 seed Notre Dame seems to have found its shooting prowess. It's a timely discovery for the No. 4 seed Fighting Irish (13-2), who will meet No. 1 seed Loyola (16-1) in Saturday's national semifinal at Gillette Stadium in Foxborough, Mass. Notre Dame had wrapped up the regular season scoring on just 25.3 percent of its shots (108-of-427). Since then, however, the offense has converted 43.1 percent of its attempts (25-of-58). In Sunday's 12-10 victory over No. 5 seed Virginia, the Fighting Irish scored on three of its first possessions of the contest and then scored on three consecutive shots in the second quarter.
