Decorum has been as much a part of the Gilman School's hundred-year history as Milton's poetry or Fermi's physics. So when school administrators got a look at Scott Sussman's head last week, covered in crop-straight rows of tiny braids, their response was swift.The 18-year-old senior would not be allowed to participate in today's graduation ceremony unless he changed his hairstyle. And in what should come as no surprise to any parent with a purposeful teen, Sussman has said he won't."It was something I always wanted to do, and school had been over for about a month," Sussman said.

There was Michael Steele on national TV the other day, slamming Baltimore's Frederick Douglass High School for failing black kids, the same ones he failed after making a dramatic personal vow three years ago to get the school fixed. And there was Doc Cheatham on local radio yesterday, announcing he'd gotten the Maryland Historical Society to take down a monkey mural because he thought the stripes on the animals' heads looked like cornrows. You have to wonder which America needs more: public figures who raise real issues but do nothing about them, or those who get silly things done.

Scott Louis Sussman let his hair down yesterday and walked across the stage with 90 other Gilman School seniors -- untangling a coiffure controversy that threatened to keep him from graduation.Gone were the tight, thin, close-to-the-scalp braids known as cornrows that kept him from participating in Sunday's baccalaureate service because the style is prohibited by the prep school's dress code.Taking their place was the frizzy hairdo that happens when the braids are unleashed and which Sussman referred to as the "Don King" look, after the boxing promoter.

The U.S. Olympic track and field trials are this weekend, so be sure to tune in to see which athletes will be suing in 2016 to keep their Beijing medals. One of these days, someone is going to notice that tennis icon-glamour girl-heartthrob Maria Sharapova falls apart in Grand Slam events fairly regularly. Andy Roddick, too. The last time a pro athlete wrapped his hands around his boss' neck, it led the national newscasts, anger-management and workplace-violence experts were consulted, the president of the United States was pressed for his reaction, and the player was kicked out for a year and became an instant pariah.

Howard County police said yesterday that they are investigating the alleged sexual assault of a 15-year-old girl in Elkridge. The girl told police that a man approached her about 3:30 p.m. Thursday as she walked alone on Rowanberry Drive. The man displayed a knife and took her to a wooded area, where he forced her to remove clothing and touched her inappropriately, police said. She reported that the man then walked to the street nearby and got into the passenger side of an older model car with a yellow license plate and rode off. The girl described the man as black, in his early to mid-20s, about 6 feet tall and 230 pounds, with short cornrows and stubble on his face.

College Park-- --Mike Jones' cornrows are gone, swept off a barber shop floor during the offseason. Ekene Ibekwe is about 10 pounds heavier than last year. And a double-take might be necessary, but sure enough, there's D.J. Strawberry with a different number on his jersey -- a giant red No. 2 where once sat a No. 5. "New number, fresh start," Strawberry says. "Everything else doesn't matter anymore." INSIDE Terps say it's never too early to start lobbying for NCAA spot.PG 3C
