Fans of Stieg Larsson's Millenium trilogy will get a closer look at the late author Wednesday, when long-time companion Eva Gabrielsson appears at the Enoch Pratt Free Library to discuss her book "There Are Things I Want You to Know. " The book is part-memoir, part-polemic against Swedish inheritance laws, which denied her a part of the fortune generated by "The Girl with the Dragon Tattoo" and Larsson's other books. Though Stieg and Eva lived together for decades -- and shared the trials of sustaining the muck-raking magazine Expo, including death threats from fascist groups -- she was not legally an heir.

Boswell to visit his two children in the company of his partner or "anyone having homosexual tendencies or such persuasions."Anne Arundel County Circuit Judge Lawrence H. Rushworth issued the ruling in April 1996 that also barred Boswell's children from overnight stays with him and visits "with anyone that the father may be living with in a nonmarital relationship."

I just saw a commercial for pulled pork pizza from Papa John's. Can anyone confirm whether that is worth eating? I feel like it's a great idea, but the execution needs to be there.

I would want a decent-sized break in the middle if I played baseball every day from March to October too, but since I don't, I can fairly say that this week is unbearable and I'm glad sports are back tonight.

I struggle with the Home Run Derby, despite being a huge fan of three-hour batting practice sessions involving Cuban sluggers. There's a very small percentage of baseball fans who feel like I do.

League precedent says he likely won't be disciplined for his arrest last weekend in Towson - Jeff Zrebiec broke down the Ravens' running back depth as part of his positional previews ahead of training camp.
