There could never be enough contemporary music around here. As is true in too many places these days, Baltimore audiences prefer to stick with well-worn sounds, preferably by long-decomposing composers. It doesn't help much to point out the obvious - if audiences way back when hadn't been willing to give new music a try, we might not be so familiar with the likes of Beethoven and Tchaikovsky now. Still, I heartily recommend a periodic visit to Nicholas Slonimsky's Lexicon of Musical Invective, originally published in 1953, for a strong dose of reality.

As the saying goes, "two is better than one. " Though I'm not sure the adage was meant for weapon-wielding psychopaths. Kit was the original alleged Bloody Face and for a moment, the opening scene on this week's American Horror Story had viewers believing he would live up to that accusation. But do we really need another Bloody Face running rampant? Ryan Murphy decided no. Kit was only serving as a disguise for the real murderer: Alma. With one thrust of the axe Alma managed to kill Grace in the same way Grace murdered her own family.

In October 2012 the Church will observe the 50th Anniversary of the opening of the Second Vatican Council. Like every anniversary, it is a time to look back and to look ahead. There will be many articles and talks on the history of the council and its true meaning. As well there should. Among those who took a leading part in the council was a young bishop named Karol Wojtyla, later known to the world as Pope John Paul II. He called the Second Vatican Council "a unique and unrepeatable experience.

"J.B.," Archibald MacLeish's reworking of the biblical story of Job, begins with a family argument over Thanksgiving dinner. Sarah fears her five beautiful children and handsome, successful husband are too casual in giving thanks."God doesn't give all this for nothing," she warns. "We, too, have our part to play" -- meaning we must send thank-you notes to God to insure his continued grace. "If we do our part," says Sarah, "He does His."J.B. remonstrates with her: "Eat your dinner, Sal, my darling.

WHAT SEEMED LIKE an abominably violent 2002 is now bleeding into 2003, and eight lives were snuffed out on Baltimore streets in the first half-week. Happy New Year. Lest anyone think the city was due a breather in its bid to control crime, the first four days of this year show how much work there still is to do. But let's not overreact, or take this spate out of context. First, it's true that, overall, homicide in Baltimore remains on a downslide. A three-year downslide, mind you, that followed 10 straight years of 300 murders or more.

Bob Dylan: The Essential Interviews Edited by Jonathan Cott The Bob Dylan Encyclopedia Michael Gray Continuum / 832 pages / $40 Bob Dylan turned 65 on Wednesday, which probably prompted an entire generation of baby boomers to ruefully hum "Forever Young" while mourning their own passage to the far end of middle age. This much is certain: Dylan would hate hearing about it. "It's horrible," he told Playboy 40 years ago, on one of the numerous occasions...

Howard County officials will mark the opening next week of Howard House, the first halfway house for recovering addicts in the county, which health and drug treatment officials have been seeking for more than a decade. The renovated facility - on the grounds of Sheppard Pratt at Ellicott City - will serve as a home base for a maximum of 15 men who have completed a higher level of substance abuse treatment and want to rebuild their lives. The halfway house will provide recovering addicts with a program that was identified as a needed service more than a decade ago. "It's adding to a continuum of care in a county that really has no residential treatment at all," said Dr. Penny E. Borenstein, Howard County's health officer.

There we were outside the Fashion Week tent at Bryant Park in New York, shivering with nervous anticipation, five people preparing to go somewhere many men wouldn't even dare dream about. That night, we had gold in our hands -- two invitations, to be precise. One to a Valentine's Day bash given by stars from the adult cinema; the other to a Victoria's Secret lingerie party starring supermodels Giselle Bundchen and Heidi Klum. It was an inexplicable blip in the space-time continuum -- beauty and sleaze together on the same night, fashion and minimal clothing colliding in a strange bump-and-grind.

City's drug problem demands a spectrum of addiction servicesThe Sun's recent editorials concerning addiction in Baltimore and the Baltimore Substance Abuse Systems (BSAS) (June 27-28) missed the mark by failing to call for a dramatic increase in treatment funding and ignoring the need for a broader continuum of addiction services.An effective continuum of addiction services ought to include harm-reduction activities, affordable housing, health care and adequate incomes.Baltimore has begun to address the last two issues by advocating a single-payer system of universal health care and adopting living wage legislation.
