Many people find slang annoying; that's as it should be. Thieves have argot, the language in which they conduct their business privately. Professionals have jargon, by which they identify qualified colleagues. Teens and hipsters have slang to separate those who are in the group from those who are not. So if slang annoys you, it's supposed to. It makes clear that you are an outsider, that you are not with it.  But outsiders also have their weapons, and you and I, the hopelessly unhip, can wield slang itself as a counterattack.

Robert Cray doesn't put much stock in the traditional image of the traveling bluesman, a musician whose only home is the nearest club or concert hall and whose social life consists largely of loving where he shouldn't.Take life on the road as an example. Cray and his band have been touring since October, when his current album, "Shame + a Sin," was released, and don't expect to finish until September. But Cray says he's hardly the road dog he used to be."As time has gone by, we've cut it down to going out for about three-and a half, four weeks at a time," he says, over the phone from his home in California.

Cory McCray spent his 18th birthday in a Baltimore jail cell. Antonio Hayes was raised by his grandmother when his mother's drug addiction got too bad. Brooke Lierman grew up in the affluent suburbs of Montgomery County, the daughter of a renowned political family. The three 30-somethings from disparate backgrounds are the new faces of Baltimore politics. Lierman, 35, was the top voter-getter in Southeast Baltimore's 46th District in last month's Democratic primary. Hayes, 36, took in more votes that any sitting delegate in West Baltimore's 40th District — ultimately ousting incumbent Shawn Z. Tarrant.

“Hello, I'm America's Jane Lynch,” Jane Lynch says as she snaps a heavy duty cleaning glove on her left hand to stick coal in the stockings of Cloris Leachman, Meryl Streep, Melissa McCarthy and Edie Falco. She explains to the viewers that Fox had taped a Christmas special in 2012 titled “Rough Trade Santa,” but it was entirely too inappropriate to air, so it sat in the vault. Until tonight. We'll never get to see the original episode. An episode which contained the answers as to why Blaine Anderson is obsessed with yule logs and why Will Schuester decided to abandon all of his Washington, D.C., dreams to come back to New Directions.

A Northeast Baltimore community leader said Wednesday he plans to step down from the city's Board of Elections to run for a state delegate seat. Cory McCray, 30, who lives in Overlea, said he plans to run for the 45th District legislative seat formerly held by Del. Hattie Harrison. In February, Nina R. Harper, 60, was sworn in to succeed Harrison, a Democrat who died Jan. 28 at 84 after nearly 40 years in office. Harper, the executive director of the Oliver Economic Development Corp., was chosen as Harrison's replacement by Baltimore's Democratic State Central Committee and was automatically appointed by Gov. Martin O'Malley under the state Constitution.

Milford Mill junior guard Isaiah McCray enjoyed growing in 2009 and is looking to do the same in 2010. He maintains a 3.8 grade-point average and plans to major in mathematics or accounting in college. He is in his third season with the varsity basketball team and first as a starter after being the first player off the bench last season. The No. 6 Millers captured the Baltimore County championship last season and made a strong run in the Class 3A North region, falling to eventual state champion Lake Clifton in the final seconds of the regional title game.

I retired in December 2006 at age 65 after working several years as a consultant and have about $110,000 in a 401(k). I'd like to roll that over into an IRA to simplify financial management and taxes. Would that be a good idea? I have approximately $285,000 in a Vanguard variable annuity. Rather than take the set monthly amount at age 70 1/2 , I'd like to close the annuity and transfer the money to some other interest-bearing account. What would you suggest for these funds: mutual funds, CDs, government bonds, money market or a guaranteed investment contract?

Robert Cray has never been a straight-up blues man -- the untamed, wailing kind whose sound erupts from a funky, swampy, almost-mystic place. Though he can go there whenever he pleases, the Georgia-born musician generally keeps the edges of his approach crisp and smooth. Various styles ripple through his blues base -- softening it at times, emboldening it other times. "We've never played straight blues," says the artist, whose four-man outfit, the Robert Cray Band, performs at the Birchmere in Alexandria, Va., on Monday night.

Mike Cray has helped thousands of adults revisit their grade school gym class. But this time around, they don't have to worry about getting picked last for the kickball team. That's because competition is a dirty word in Cray's Baltimore Sports and Social Club Inc. "Nowhere in my format is the word `competitive,'" Cray said. The BSSC is a six-year-old league made up largely of city and suburban professionals, some as young as 22, others 40 and older, who participate in games such as Wiffle Ball, volleyball and something played on ice called broomball.

Last summer, Tracey and Robert Thornton just wanted to start saving for their children's college costs and take an occasional vacation. But their combined income of $77,000 a year wasn't keeping up with their spending as they cared for four children in Baltimore. Then, when he lost his $42,000-a-year job in October, the situation quickly went from troublesome to dire. "Something always happens to mess up my game plan," a frustrated Tracey Thornton said. While Robert Thornton continues job hunting, the couple has been consulting with Jennifer Cray, a certified financial planner with Investor's Capital Management in Menlo Park, Calif.

WASHINGTON -- Chris McCray could have wound up anywhere. He could be playing overseas, like some of his former University of Maryland basketball teammates who were not quite good enough for the NBA. He could be playing in some developmental league, still dreaming about getting back to the big time. Truth be told, McCray could also be nowhere, just as he was last winter, when his career in College Park came to an abrupt and embarrassing end after he was declared academically ineligible 17 games into his senior season.
