She paraded through the house, grabbing just about everything. Starting in the living room, she quickly progressed to the kitchen, wrapping up every spoon, fork and bowl. My friend Ashley was moving and her last-minute packing looked like a sporting event. "No, this won't fit," she said, trying to stuff a large oval vase into a tiny square box. I'd known Ashley since fifth grade, and it had been years since we sat and had a serious talk. The topic? Men, of course. I was going through some things with my (now ex-)

Susan Reimer must have been in a hurry to excoriate Rep. Paul Ryan because she didn't bother to get her facts or her logic straight ("Ryan and the GOP's women problem," Aug. 16). When did Rep. Paul Ryan disrespect nuns? Ms. Reimer says the nuns' objections to Mr. Ryan's economic principles are a bellwether for other women voters. But she's so anxious to get that Democratic propaganda out that she gets the message garbled in the process. When Congressman Ryan was "jousting" with the Jesuit priests at Georgetown, I wonder if he got their opinion on abortion, same-sex marriage, birth control, etc. Mr. Reimer also mentioned that Mr. Ryan probably knows more about the budget than a lot of people, including the president.

My story isn't all that groundbreaking. I'm 23, officially a year removed from the University of Maryland-College Park and walking that ever-shaky line between being a functional adult and an irresponsible mess. It's a story you've heard many times before (probably in some form of Internet listicle). And it's also one that many of you are probably experiencing right now, or at least can remember when you were. My column will try to shed light on what being in this awkward half-stage of life really means.

I am Zahara Unique-Lynne Johnson, a 23-year-old Morgan State graduate from Camden, N.J. I live part of the time in Baltimore, part of the time in my hometown. But no matter the state, one thing remains the same: my name is always pronounced wrong. The correct pronunciation is Za-hi-ra, but my mom felt frivolous on that 26th day of August, and opted out of spelling it that way. On the first day of school, I can remember teachers butchering it. "Za-hair-ra" or "Za-hor-ra," they'd say with certainty.

Ann Coulter has, once again, done what she does best: poke a stick in the cages of the liberal menagerie to rile up the beasts. This time she has done it with an all-out assault on soccer. Right in the middle of a World Cup in which the American team has done well enough to attract the attention of people who aren't sure of the difference between futbol and football, Ms. Coulter has gone and pooped on the pitch by writing, "Any growing interest in soccer can only be a sign of the nation's moral decay.

My friends, I am delighted to be back writing to you. My recuperation from hip surgery went very well and I am again "up and running. " In my absence, Karen Arnett de Rodriguez did a terrific job of writing about Rodgers Forge, a neighborhood that we both love dearly. For 26 years, I have recounted great moments in your lives and in that of the Forge. I have adored every moment - it has truly been a labor of love. Although those years haven't felt long, a quarter of a century is a long time.

It's a really sad thing if Robert L. Ehrlich Jr.'s column in The Sun is the quality of commentary that Baltimore and the surrounding area deserve ( "News of the future," Feb. 23). This is a former governor and public office holder writing like a blogger. I have a lot of doubt that this reflects actual beliefs and not just pandering or doing his part for his party or group. It would be laughable if he wasn't actually working to muddy the waters on issues that are actually relevant to the people of Baltimore and the world.

"The Columnist," by Jeffrey Frank. Simon and Schuster. 237 pages. $22. The temptation in this enjoyable little screed -- excuse me, intricate yet compact tale of our times -- is to figure out which Washington columnist Mr. Frank is hinting at. When asked, the author waves a hand and says nobody, and that may be true. It may in fact be everybody, parts of a previous generation, Reston, the Alsops, more venerable in the sepia rear-view mirror. Or the current tiresome establishment scrivners like George Will, William Safire and Cal Thomas.

As a 30-year retired wrestling coach still active on state committees, I was saddened to hear of the passing of Gregory Kane ( "Gregory Kane, former Sun columnist, dies at 62," Feb. 20). Mr. Kane often wrote about wrestling in relation to his own high school experiences and to the values taught by the nature of the sport. The extraordinary mental and physical requirements led to the development of discipline and a work ethic that many wrestlers display throughout their lives.

Gregory P. Kane, a former Baltimore Sun columnist known for his perceptive observations, died of cancer Tuesday at Johns Hopkins Hospital. He was 62. "He challenged a lot of traditional political thought in the African-American community," said Anthony McCarthy, a talk-show host at radio station WEEA-FM. "When I'd have him as a guest on my show, he'd say to me, 'I'm your token conservative.' " Mr. Kane became a Sun reporter in 1993 and began writing his local column in 1995. Recalled for his provocative style, he wrote a description of himself in his first column: "a lifelong Baltimore resident, liberal on some issues, conservative on others, a veritable fascist on the topic of crime.
