It is possible, some say probable, that a former New York City mayor will be running for president in November 2008, as the nominee of the Republican Party. And it is not impossible, some say, that the present New York mayor will be the presidential nominee for a serious and well-financed independent bid. The "possible" is Republican Rudolph W. Giuliani. The "not impossible" is ex-Democrat, ex-Republican independent Michael R. Bloomberg. Six leading national pollsters in August put Giuliani well ahead of John McCain, Fred Thompson and Mitt Romney.

Since the early 20th century, politicians and sports have had a relationship as close as, say, hot dogs and mustard. Tossing out the ceremonial first pitch at a baseball game, inviting the championship team to the White House and even sending plays to the head coach have long been part of elected officials' game plan to win fans themselves. So when Gov. Robert L. Ehrlich Jr. took his cuts in the batting cage before the Orioles' game against the New York Yankees on Tuesday night and spent a few innings in the broadcast booth, he was merely following a political tradition - albeit a bit more expansively - that crosses party lines.

Laetitia B. Coolidge, an artist, world traveler and former Roland Park resident, died in her sleep Saturday at a retirement community in San Diego. She was 99. She was born Laetitia Bredow Kelly at Liriodendron, the 200-acre summer home that her parents built near Bel Air in 1897. She was the last surviving child of Dr. Howard Atwood Kelly, who was considered the "father of American gynecology" and was a pioneer in the use of radium to treat cancer. Her father was one of the "Big Four" -- with Drs. William H. Welch, William Osler and W.S. Halsted -- who founded the Johns Hopkins University School of Medicine.
