WASHINGTON -- Someone once polled a group of ex-Central Intelligence Agency officers as to which former chief they would like to have at their side if they were stranded on an island.If there was an ample supply of good food and drink, Allen Dulles was the overwhelming choice. But if the situation smacked of danger, William E. Colby won the nod.With his bookkeeper's glasses and bland manner, Mr. Colby, who died last week at the age of 76 in a Southern Maryland boating accident, looked like a colorless bureaucrat.

Toronto Blue Jays center fielder Colby Rasmus has homered in consecutive games. The one Saturday night against Tommy Hunter put the game into extra innings. And his blast in the first inning Sunday also had some significance. Rasmus' homer against Orioles right-hander Ubaldo Jimenez reached Eutaw Street, beyond the right-field flag court. It's the 78th to land there in Camden Yards history and the first this season. Of those 78 homers, 47 have been hit by opponents and four by Blue Jays.

TORONTO - Even though the two-run homer right-hander Chris Tillman yielded in the seventh inning was the difference on the scoreboard in the Orioles' 4-3 loss to the Toronto Blue Jays on Saturday night, the familiar flubs of an offense that continues to struggle with runners in scoring position sealed the club's fourth loss in its past five games. These Orioles don't like the comparisons between this year's club and last year's playoff team. They've long turned the page on 2012. But the marked difference between the teams was on display Saturday against a last-place Toronto team.

ON THE NIGHT William E. Colby paddled off into the murky waters of Maryland's Wicomico River,never to be seen alive again, Kenneth B. Osborn was welcoming customers at Ruth's Chris Steak House in Baltimore.An odd pairing: "Bart" Osborn, a gregarious restaurant maitre d' with prematurely white hair and a happily acquired mid-life paunch; and Mr. Colby, the quiet, enigmatic former director of the Central Intelligence Agency. They would seem to have little in common. But the spy business makes strange bedfellows, ones which the CIA has often had to regret -- and none so more than the one it made of Osborn.

Sarah Walsh was once described as a role player before she headed to Colby College in Waterville, Maine, to play basketball. Certainly, the 6-foot-1 senior from Seton Keough must be playing the leading role for Colby. "There is no doubt that Sarah will go down as one of the top players ever here," said Colby coach Patricia O'Brien. "I've never had a player in my 12 years of coaching who was such a dominate player inside who had the instincts, quickness and work ethic to go outside and defend so well.

SPY THRILLER fanatics will be deprived of many a fantasy now that the body of former CIA William E. Colby, 76, has been found in the waters off his Charles County home, apparently the victim not of foul play but of the foul weather that capsized his canoe April 27. Viet Cong veterans will not claim revenge; CIA ultras will not feel he got his come-uppance; old Kremlin agents will not be under suspicion.In his career of espionage and intelligence that spanned more than half a century, Mr. Colby made plenty of enemies -- a fact that heightened conjecture during the nine days of his disappearance.

As a man who prides himself on good sportsmanship and fair play, I have but one thing to say to Colby Donaldson, the "Survivor II" contestant who practically gave away the $1 million prize to a woman. Colby, you're an idiot. I think I speak for men everywhere in this matter, you car-customizing, buff-bodied, soft-hearted-and-headed Texan. You let your gender down, big time. I could only watch in amazement when - after winning the most important immunity challenge of your 42 days in the Australian outback - you chose to put Tina Wesson in the finals instead of alleged chef Keith Famie.

LOS ANGELES -- David C. Colby was Wall Street's favorite managed care money man. He helped build WellPoint Inc. into the nation's second-largest health insurance company. Portfolio managers and brokerage analysts voted him the industry's best financial officer four years in a row. The water-cooler talk was that he was a natural to move into the chief executive suite. He was 53, earning more than $740,000 a year and had just received stock options then valued at $1.6 million, along with the title of vice chairman, when WellPoint asked him to resign.

Thirty-one years ago, Colby Rodowsky, a Baltimore mother and housewife, got her chance. An English major at the College of Notre Dame of Maryland, she had always wanted to write, and now that the youngest of her six children was out of kindergarten, she'd have a bit of quiet time each afternoon. She signed up for a tutorial with a writing coach, submitted a book idea, and, with a lot of encouragement from her husband, Lawrence, wrote her first novel for children. "I had no idea whether anyone would publish it," says Rodowsky, 74, at an interview in her Baltimore home.

Children smile and look in amazement when they visit the Colby house in Columbia. They watch Santa's elves busily make toys as Christmas carols fill the nighttime air. They marvel at the display of Santa and his reindeer soaring toward the Colby's chimney. "Does Santa live here?" some children have asked. The house, at 6428 Deep Calm in Owen Brown village, belongs to Butch and Barbara Colby, aka Mr. and Mrs. Santa Claus - a title derived from the couple's Christmas spirit and the more than 55,000 Christmas lights illuminating their corner property.

Charles Daniels' home on East Durham Road in Columbia is awash with a display of more than 125,000 lights. Daniels, a retired accounts manager for a lottery systems corporation, says he is aiming for 200,000 lights next year. He says he hopes to inherit the local display title held by fellow Columbia resident Butch Colby, who decked his home for the holidays for 25 years. Colby, who put his property up for sale to move to a retirement community, did not decorate this year.
