We just couldn't figure out why Cordish and Phillips were being so coy about their relationship - weren't they in love like everybody thought? It's their business, of course, and there any number of explanations for their public denials, including the possiblity that Cordish has always thought that Phillips was super stuck up and that Phillips wouldn't have moved into the Power Plant if it were the last place in the whole Inner Harbor!

But attorneys for Midei and the hospital's former owners said the stents were necessary and meant to improve the plaintiff's health so he could carry on normal activities, such as his career.

Cards started turning and dice began rolling early Thursday morning at Maryland Live, already the largest slots casino in the Mid-Atlantic. Opened just 10 months ago, the casino next to an Anne Arundel County outlet mall rakes in more money from slot machines than any other casino from New Jersey to West Virginia, including those in Atlantic City. And now it has added table games such as blackjack, roulette and baccarat, taking a big step toward becoming the Mid-Atlantic's dominant full-scale casino.
