First Lady Catherine Curran O'Malley issued an apology this morning for saying that delegates who'd switched their votes on same-sex marriage last session were "cowards. " In a statement issued a few minutes ago, the First Lady said she let her "feelings get the better of me. " “I regret my recent choice of words," O'Malley said in the statement. The Associated Press reported Thursday night that the First Lady, speaking at the 24th annual Conference on Lesbian, Gay, Bisexual and Transgender Equality in Baltimore, said “there were some cowards that prevented it from passing.” Last year a same-sex marriage bill passed in the Senate, but was pulled from the House floor when leaders found they were a few votes short of passage.

Media coverage of the death of Robin Williams is still being debated for good reason: It was filled with ignorance and wretched excess. And the more time you have to reflect on it, the worse it seems. From Shepard Smith characterizing Williams as a "coward" on Fox News, to widespread misinformation about the comedian's finances, the coverage was pathetic -- especially on cable news channels where most viewers turned for information initially. If cable news would follow the simple dictate of publishing only what is known to be true, we would be a much smarter and less addled nation.

Former Oriole Luke Scott was cut from his Korean baseball team, SK Wyverns, Wednesday after reportedly calling his coach, Lee Man-soo, a “liar” and a “coward” in a public confrontation, according to Korean media reports. The Korea Times reported that Scott was put on the reserve team - presumably the disabled list equivalent in Korea - because of plantar fasciitis, and when he went to the clubhouse to gather things from his locker, the confrontation began. After he called out his coach in front of everyone, Scott went straight to reporters to explain his gripes.

NEW YORK - President Bush is a "moral coward" who is too "weak" to say no to political backers in the coal, oil, utility and mining industries, former Vice President Al Gore charged yesterday in an environmental speech. Gore's address to a packed house at the Beacon Theater was his most personal denunciation yet of the man who defeated him in the 2000 presidential election, and it came at a time when some pollsters and Democratic activists suggest Bush might be vulnerable to such attacks.

In 1954, Noel Coward wrote in his diary: "I have been carefully reading Wilenski's `Lives of the Impressionists' and really no burlesque however extravagant could equal the phrases he uses to describe the `Abstract' boys. I am grateful to him for giving me a lot of hilarious material."Coward turned that material into his satire of the modern art world, "Nude with Violin." A second-rate work by a first-rate comic playwright, it is nonetheless receiving a sparkling production at Everyman Theatre in celebration of Coward's centennial.

Noel Coward's "Present Laughter" is in many ways a play about overacting. The protagonist, a stage idol named Garry Essendine, is "on" so much of the time, he can no longer distinguish between his on-stage and off-stage personae.At Olney Theatre Center, where director John Going has staged a precisely paced production, even Coward's trademark dressing gowns overact. They call attention to themselves with leopard-print collars and cuffs or a hot tropical print on red silk.Still, a degree of modulation is necessary to allow Garry's histrionics to build.

ELMONT, N.Y. - California Chrome co-owner Steve Coburn spent the past five weeks captivating America with his folksy charm and a shoot-from-the-hip style that seemed refreshing until he shot himself in the foot on Saturday. Instead of expressing his great pride in a low-budget horse that captured the imagination of the nation and nearly became the first horse in 36 years to win horse racing's Triple Crown, Coburn blasted the format that forced his horse to face several Kentucky Derby rivals who rested through the Preakness and crowned a new Belmont Stakes champion who had not run since May 10. He called the strategy "a coward's way out" during a nationally televised interview that wasn't folksy or charming.

Everyman Theatre has been on a roll since the beginning of 2013, when the company inaugurated its inviting new downtown space. The first full season in that venue - there's one more play left, "Tribes," opening May 28 - has been marked by exceptionally effective stagings of diverse works (three were given extra weeks to meet demand). "That's why it took so long to come up with a second season," said Everyman's artistic director, Vincent Lancisi. "I really felt intimidated by the scope of this one. " What Lancisi devised for 2014-2015 is a promising mix of three Baltimore premieres and three vintage plays.

Recently I had the misfortune to attend the Baltimore County Public Schools board meeting. Silly me, I thought I could speak and influence the board before they made a decision about the boundary change for the new elementary school in Mays Chapel ( "Pot Spring parents object to Mays Chapel redistricting plan," Feb. 12). Little did I know that our school superintendent, Dallas Dance, could override the "democratic" process and order the board to only consider one of the two options that the "official" committee had recommended to the board.

In the movie "The Wizard of Oz", the great and powerful Wizard uttered the words "Pay no attention to the man behind the curtain!" So who is the man, or woman, behind the curtain offering the media damaging leaks about Maryland Attorney General Doug Gansler ( "Gansler says he made 'a mistake,' Oct. 24)? Whoever it may be, this person is devoid of a heart, certainly possesses no courage and doesn't have the brains to realize what they are doing is potentially damaging to his or her credibility as well.

In terms of enthusiasm for the art form, there is really no difference between community theater groups, with their mostly volunteer corps, and professional companies, with their Actors' Equity card-carrying cast members. It's the matter of artistic quality that tends to separate the waters. But, as many a what-I-do-for-love actor will tell you, there isn't an automatic correlation between a pay check and a good performance. And when the fates allow, a community theater can deliver remarkably satisfying work.

Plenty of Coward "It was described as vulgar, disgusting, shocking, nauseating, vile, obscene, degenerate, etc., etc." So wrote the late Noel Coward, summing up the critics' reaction to his 1925 comedy, Fallen Angels. The story of two respectable British ladies confronted by past indiscretions may seem considerably less shocking today, but it still brims with Coward's trademark wit. The comedy opens a month-long run at Theatre Hopkins tomorrow. Under Suzanne Pratt's direction, the cast is headed by Laurel Burggraf and Molly Moores and also features Stephen Gaede, Jonas Grey, Jason Hentrich and Lynda McClary.

Dr. Syed Wasimul Haque, the president of the United Maryland Muslim Council, condemned the "cowardly terrorist act" at the Boston Marathon Monday that has killed three and wounded more than 100. "Our prayers go out for the fallen victims and to the city of Boston," Haque, a Frederick physician, said in a statement. He and others in Maryland's Muslim community have condemned past acts of violence and terror against the United States. "The Muslims have always stood shoulder to shoulder during perilous times that our nation has faced and will do so in the future as well against all terrorist attacks," Haque said.
