To live in Ruxton you're certified sane It's one of the neighborhoods' perks. Behaviors that elsewhere would put you away, Well, here, they're just little quirks. 'Cause the streets are clean and the air is as pure As the minds of all of the neighbors. If you act sort of weird, it's called normal here Even though you're convinced you're Jim Nabors.

Dave Schaub had staked quite a lot on the Orioles as they attempted to rally against the Detroit Tigers in Friday's Game 2 of the American League Division Series. The sign the Middle River resident hoisted above his head said it all: "If the O's Win, We're Getting Married!" So it was just a little sweeter for him when Delmon Young's three-run double fell in to put the Orioles ahead in the eighth inning and Zach Britton closed out the 7-6 victory, which put the Tigers down 2-0 with the series headed to Detroit.

Let's see: Our Wisconsin Supreme Court is choking each other. Our New Jersey lawmakers are threatening to punch each other in the head. But when it comes to crazy fights in government, we're still way behind Afghanistan.  At least the fight in their Parliament was over something important: The impeachment of President Hamid Karzai. Our conflicts have generally been over such noble causes as getting even after personal slights.  Nevertheless, this showdown raised once again that timeless question: Which would you rather get hit by?

COLLEGE PARK -  The first thing that sticks out about Daniel Ezeagwu? Probably his hair, a flat top of sorts with the top dyed yellow. “He's got nice hair,” Maryland safety Anthony Nixon joked. But Ezeagwu's play has been sticking out as well. The freshman is part of a group competing for Maryland's fourth and fifth cornerback jobs, and he has been getting singled out for his play by both teammates and coach Randy Edsall during the last week. Edsall was asked earlier in the week which players stood out to him during the Terrapins' scrimmage Saturday.

When I spoke with Wye Oak's Jenn Wasner earlier this year, we spent most of the time talking about her solo project, the excellent Flock of Dimes. But later in the interview, Wasner noticeably perked up when asked about a pop collaboration with White Life's Jon Ehrens. "It's some of the best stuff we've ever done," Wasner said. "It's happening more slowly than both of us would like. He's a super talented songwriter. I shine in the pop spectrum more than I was expecting. " The duo calls themselves Dungeonesse, and the first single and video was released today, and it backs up Wasner's claims in an impressive way. "Drive You Crazy" is a skittering dance track that should have no problem getting people out of their seats.

THE DARN CAR trunk won't latch. A 13-year-old econo-import says one thing. A 13-year-old econo-import with its trunk taped shut says quite something else. This calls for a journey to the end of the Earth - Crazy Ray's, of course. Pay a buck, sign the waiver, pass through the gate and, as far as the eye can stand it, Crazy Ray's presents a hideously beautiful field of broken dreams - 13 acres of mud topped by the broken, bent, smashed, corroded, stripped or burned remains of 3,000 vehicles, all for the taking, piece by piece.

NEW YORK -- "Is it all right if I don't eat it all?" Benjamin Lebert asked in a small, polite voice, staring down at the thick slab of filet mignon he had ordered at Michael Jordan's Steakhouse in Grand Central Terminal. Lebert is 18, a slight, sweet-faced boy, partly paralyzed on his left side from deprivation of oxygen at birth. His first novel, "Crazy," written when he was 16, has been a runaway best seller in his native Germany. There are 200,000 copies in print; the rights have been sold in 26 countries.

Are they crazy? It's a legitimate question to pose to the Orioles now that they have unveiled who's in charge. It doesn't apply to the men actually in charge, though. Not completely. Yes, the Orioles are coming off an 88-loss, fourth-place season, sinking like a rock in the second half and covering themselves in slime on the way to the bottom. Yet they brought back the manager and the vice president. That tells you that they think they're not that far away from contention. The new/old manager, Sam Perlozzo, and the new/old vice president, Mike Flanagan, said as much yesterday as Perlozzo officially had the interim tag removed.

The nurses at Emory Hospital who are caring for the two U.S. Ebola patients around the clock are not immune from fear. No nurses are. The truth stares us in the face every time an indiscriminate killer like Ebola or any horrific strain goes viral. Nurses are so often the first to reach the front lines of an epidemic, the first to recognize and try to relieve patient pain and the first to get to work healing the sick regardless of the challenges and obstacles. Whether it's in Atlanta or Africa, nurses are right now at the bedside dealing with the danger of a disease spread through contact with blood, vomit, saliva and diarrhea.

So, Todd Akin is back and he's talking rape again. You remember what happened last time. The would-be Missouri senator torpedoed his campaign two years ago after suggesting in a TV interview that if a woman is a victim of "legitimate rape," she is unlikely to get pregnant because her body "has ways to try to shut that whole thing down. " Those comments, he now wants you to know, were perfectly reasonable. In his new book, "Firing Back," Mr. Akin informs us that some rapes are not "legitimate" because some women falsely accuse.

A crazy week of upsets in Division I women's lacrosse has scrambled the Inside Lacrosse Brine Division I Women's Media Top 20 with Johns Hopkins making a big leap into the Top 10.

They need just one more win to tie the best start in their Division I history. Johns Hopkins has been one of few teams to hold course as March became a month of upsets.

Would you care for some Crazy Cheese? Why yes, yes I would. But I would also be OK with some Kraft Easy Cheese. Or some Wis Pride Port Wine spreadable cheese... On Sunday night's episode of "The Walking Dead" on AMC, Michonne tempts Carl with a can of aerosol spray cheese, referring to it as Crazy Cheese. Carl was all upset about the loss of younger sister Judith, and Michonne was trying to lighten his mood by spraying processed cheese product all in her mouth and groaning like a zombie.

Previously on "The Amazing Race," there were so many teams! And they were so happy! Until Phil sent most of them home. Last week, Leo and Jamal came in last place. Tonight, we find out who wins. Here's the part where I tell you that my professional recapping skills failed me. My Tivo did not record! I was lollygagging around my house, fixing school lunches, talking on the phone, planning vacations, giving myself a delayed start so that I could skip all the commercials. I turned on my TV about thirty minutes into the episode only to discover my worst nightmare.

There will be plenty of time to ponder what this could do for the Ravens' season. But in the immediate aftermath of a 29-26 victory over the Minnesota Vikings that mixed the exhilarating with the absurd, the Ravens were far too consumed with what they had just witnessed to worry about any of that. In the final 125 seconds, there was 36 points scored and five lead changes, each team believing it had scored the game-winning touchdown only to see it answered within seconds. The Ravens never did stop the Vikings.
