Quinnaya Janel Heard, 19, was on her way to work at about 5 a.m. when TSA agents at the checkpoint detected the weapon among her belongings, the TSA and Maryland Transportation Authority Police said Wednesday.

Forget Ted Cruz, Paul Ryan, Hillary Clinton or even Doug Gansler and Lt. Gov. Anthony Brown. An emerging political force in the recent months, including time during the federal shutdown, doesn't represent the Republican or Democratic party - at least officially. Shoving around its public policy agenda is a Seattle native that was born on March 30, 1971: Starbucks. The company has shown recently it is not afraid to tackle social issues on top of serving lattes and pastries. Starbucks CEO Howard Schultz in September announced that guns were not welcome in his stores, though enforcing that edict is another thing.

When the topic is coffee, a debate always seems a split second away. Obsessives argue over beans, equipment and, of course, where to drink it. We all have favorite spots for different reasons. In Hampden, the picturesque Artifact Coffee plays a whimsical foil to the adventurous, no-frills Spro. The Daily Grind in Fells Point can get you in and out quickly. I have never had a bad cup of anything at the relatively new Tribeca Coffee Roasters in Mount Vernon, either, and that is just to name a percentage of the city's viable options.

Early on a wintry Saturday morning, Phil Mitchell stood watch over his pride and joy: a black and orange 1989 Lotus Esprit. Like any well-versed car buff, he proceeded to reel off bullet points regarding his handcrafted machine from England - precision engineered, small turbo engine, lightweight, "phenomenal handling and road-holding. " Mitchell, 53, of Brookeville, said he bought the car - which cost $60,000 new - on Ebay. His insurance is reasonable, about $450 a year.

Think globally, drink coffee locally. Specifically, at the new Planet on the Corner, which just opened at 2229 Fleet St. in Canton. Naturally, it has all those good things that go with specialty coffee drinks-scones, muffins and the like. But it also offers light meals for $8 or less, such as enchiladas, quiches and casseroles with salad and bread. The coffee shop's global sandwiches range from a Middle Eastern with hummus and sprouts on pita to a French baguette with Brie and apples. Hours are 7 a.m. to 11 p.m. Mondays to Fridays, 9 a.m. to 11 p.m. Saturdays, and 9 a.m. to 9 p.m. Sundays.

Meg Enns distinctly remembers the summer morning a year ago when she went to buy produce and noticed a "for rent" sign on the old stone filling station at the intersection of Falls and Shawan roads. She immediately pictured a coffee shop at this busy junction. "But I said to myself, `Don't do it. Don't do it. Get it out of your mind,' " says Enns. For a few days she didn't say a word to anyone about what she envisioned. A Florida native, she had been in Maryland only six months and had just been laid off from her job at an Internet company.

Next month, a 3-foot Starbucks logo will adorn the historic Main Street facade where inside Revolutionary schemes were once traded over draughts of ale and cider. The opening of the city's third outlet of the worldwide coffee chain in late March will cap a year of securing city approvals and renovations in the Maryland Inn - but it is not likely to decaffeinate the controversy. For a few critics, including Mayor Ellen O. Moyer, another link of the worldwide gourmet coffee chain was about as welcome as the British Redcoats back in Washington's day. She called the idea "a missed opportunity for something really special."

The owner of Zeke's Coffee is Thomas Rhodes, the fellow with the tattoos, ear piercings and gray goatee. He might still look the part of a rock 'n' roll roadie, but that career was years ago, before he found a life in coffee. He was a barista at the Daily Grind in Fells Point, then went to work for the coffee shop's then-owner in the Key Coffee roastery. He took the leap into his own company in 2005, dubbed with the nickname his father gave him and all four of his siblings. A one-pound roaster turned out the first coffee he sold at Baltimore farmers' markets, leading to larger and larger roasters.

Remember the time Kevin Spacey and Bill Clinton rolled into the Starbucks near UB in Mount Vernon? Spacey told David Letterman last night that he was following the former president's motorcade when Clinton got a hankering for a coffee. "So we're driving through the streets of Baltimore with the Secret Service and police motorcade and he says, 'I want some coffee. I think there's a Starbucks up ahead,'" said Spacey, mimicking Clinton's gravelly drawl. Clinton was in town to give a speech at the Meyerhoff Symphony Hall.

Does Roland Park really need another hip/casual coffee shop, with funky reggae music, local art for sale on the walls and twentysomething customers clicking away on laptops? In the case of the Evergreen, which opened in October, the answer is yes. Although the Evergreen has plenty of competition in the baked goods department from Big Sky Bread, a bakery and sandwich shop a few doors down, and Sam's Bagels and More across the street, it has found a following of its own. Seems people can never get enough of good coffee, freshly baked goods and tasty light meals, all in a spacious, sunny space.
