Every news outlet you can think of has had something to say about Ray Rice. Plus one you might not think of. Cosmopolitan. On its website, the magazine famous for its naughty bedroom advice published a sad and searing commentary by author Roxane Gay on Janay Rice and domestic abuse. The appalling number of battered spouses - one in four women and one in seven men - has not moved the needle on this issue, she said, and she didn't think a video record of it would, either. Not exactly what you'd expect to hear from Cosmo.

Annapolis I Remember, described as "a theater presentation of oral histories and photographs," might have been no more exciting than a glance at an old photo album. Instead, the look back at the first half of the 20th century through the eyes of former Annapolitans proved to be a rare treat for the capacity audience Sunday at Key Auditorium at St. John's College. From the opening segment, the audience was delighted to recognize landmarks from earlier times in photographic images projected onto a theater wall.

Turns out your mom was right all along — it's not you, it's them. Or, more specifically, the lack of them. The ratio of women to men in Baltimore is hopelessly skewed to the advantage of the hairy, beer-swilling, leaving-dirty-socks-on-the-bathroom-floor half of the population, according to a report in Cosmopolitan's November issue. Charm City ranks as the fourth worst city to meet a man, because of an overabundance of never-married women, according to the magazine. Maybe it's all the ladies who make the city so charming?

As I hailed a taxi at Panama City's Tocumen International Airport, an affable young man named Patricio asked to share a ride with me. A travel agent, he had just returned home from several days of meetings in the United States. While we sped toward downtown, Patricio explained the purpose of his visit north. "I was trying to let people know that Panama City isn't the boonies," he said. "We have tall buildings! We have cell phones!" Indeed. Visitors are usually shocked that Panama City is so large -- nearly a million people live there, 2.7 million in the entire country -- and cosmopolitan.

The Cosmopolitan Bar and Grill has it all. OK, it doesn't have great french fries or a reliable non-smoking area, but more about those later. What it does have is a splendid sense of style, an array of martinis, a menu that both works for a casual meal and offers some more serious delights, pleasantly attentive service and a sublime bread pudding. In a way it's a shame that this is a bar; the requisite TVs clash with the light-hearted chic of the downstairs room (although everyone at the bar is drinking blush-pink cosmopolitans from martini glasses, which gives the place a certain funky glamour)

When I'm in the supermarket checkout line, I always look at Cosmopolitan magazine to see if the editors have made any progress in their continuing effort to figure out men. I'm sure you're familiar with Cosmopolitan ("Fun -- Fearless -- Female"). It's the one with the cover that always has a picture of a woman who looks as though she has a prestigious and rewarding executive career as a hooker. Roughly half the articles in Cosmopolitan are devoted to explaining how you, the Cosmo reader, can make yourself look like the cover model.

Mix vodka, Triple Sec and cranberry juice with a twist and you get a cosmopolitan. As of late March or early April, look for the Cosmopolitan Bar and Grill to open at 2933 O'Donnell St. in Canton. (It's where Shanghai Lil's used to be.) Cosimo Savino, one of the owners, says the Cosmopolitan will feature a martini bar specializing in cosmos, the trendy mixed drink described above. Other owners include the Liberatore brothers, who are involved with several area Italian restaurants. Cosmopolitan's food won't be Italian, though.

When women complain about men who can't commit, they can thank -- or blame -- two people: Playboy magazine publisher Hugh Hefner and the former editor of Cosmopolitan magazine, Helen Gurley Brown, who died this week at age 90. Ms. Brown was the flip side of Mr. Hefner, offering women permission, even encouragement, to embrace a female version of Mr. Hefner's freewheeling "Playboy philosophy" of unrestrained sexual pleasure. Ms. Brown and Mr. Hefner offered one-way tickets to fantasyland, a journey supposedly without cost to a destination seemingly without consequences.

Before there was "Sex and the City," there was "Sex and the Single Girl," Helen Gurley Brown's hall pass for women to have the job, the man, the money and all the sex they wanted. The iconic editor of Cosmopolitan magazine, with its bosomy Cosmo girls on the cover dripping with pearls and promising pleasure, died Monday at the age of 90 after a brief illness. She had reported to her pretty, pink corner office in the Hearst Building in Manhattan almost daily until her death. "It would be hard to overstate the importance ... of her success...

Roger D. Redden, who spent most of his legal career as a partner at Piper and Marbury and maintained a lifelong interest in architecture and travel, died Tuesday from a cerebral hemorrhage at Union Memorial Hospital. He was 75. "His death has really hit me hard. He was a dear friend and one of the finest attorneys I've ever known. I'd rank him No. 1 in the way he practiced law and treated people," Sen. Benjamin L. Cardin, a Maryland Democrat, said yesterday. Mr. Cardin said that when he was speaker of the Maryland House of Delegates, he frequently consulted Mr. Redden for advice.

Waleed Hazbun, an assistant professor of political science at the Johns Hopkins University, recently moved to Beirut, Lebanon, to teach at the American University there. Hazbun was supposed to go in September, but his trip was delayed by the Israeli incursion after Hezbollah fighters launched rockets into Israel. He sent this letter to friends shortly after his arrival in a city rocked by turmoil. One of the main protagonists is the so-called March 14 movement, taking its name from the day of a large demonstration against Syrian control of Lebanon a month after the assassination of former Prime Minister Rafik Hariri in 2005.

If Lebanon were a Shakespearean play, it would be one of his tragedies. Certainly almost any country in that troubled part of the globe would qualify for that status, but it is particularly appropriate for this swath of land along the eastern end of the Mediterranean. Those who have visited Beirut in times of peace and prosperity can wax eloquent about its Paris of the Middle East status, its heritage of French colonialism and a stunning physical beauty mixing with vigorous commerce and a polyglot culture to produce a city of unquestionable appeal.

Rehoboth Beach Rehoboth Beach has been described as being a touch Cape Cod and a little Key West. That's not as true as it used to be. With the real-estate boom, many of the town's old-fashioned clapboard and shingle cottages are being replaced by expensive condos. Affluent vacationers have made Rehoboth their destination beach, which is changing the character of the place - sometimes for the worse, but usually for the better. Over the years, the town has become increasingly cosmopolitan.

ELLICOTT CITY resident Sherry Healy said she always loved listening to talk radio. Now she has her own show. Cosmopolitan People, owned and hosted by Healy, debuted on WCBM 680 AM in October. The show's co-host, Donna Clementoni, lives in Columbia's Town Center. The show is a magazine format, Healy said, with different topics each week. "I want each show to be unpredictable," said Healy, 43. Her listeners have heard topics ranging from suggestions on holiday gift buying to the personal story of a Marine who fought in Iraq.
