"Linchpin" and "crossroads" are two labels often applied to Turkey since World War II. The crossroads between Europe and the Middle East, the intersection of western and Islamic civilizations. The linchpin of the chain of alliances surrounding the Soviet Union that was supposed to contain aggressive communism.The strains on Turkey's commitment to joining Europe as a full-fledged partner and to maintaining its western-style democracy are great enough for President Clinton to confer today with Prime Minister Tansu Ciller, passing through on a private visit.

Orioles left-hander Zach Britton won't lie about it. Yes, in the past year, he considered what it would be like to wear a different uniform, to get a second chance elsewhere. Heading into last fall, Britton had struggled through consecutive rocky seasons in which a shoulder injury, lack of command and cracking confidence had thrust him into a career crossroads. Once considered a future ace, Britton weathered a brutal final month last season, pitching poorly in a spot start against the Cleveland Indians before being jettisoned to instructional league while his teammates were fighting in a pennant race.

If there were any doubt that Egypt's fragile transition to democracy is being undermined by powerful forces bent on re-establishing the authoritarian rule of former military strongman Hosni Mubarak before his ouster in 2011, two incidents last week show the disturbing direction in which events there are drifting. On Monday, a court in the Upper Egyptian city of Minya handed down death sentences to 529 defendants accused of murdering a policeman last year. The charges were obviously fabricated to target Muslim Brotherhood supporters of former President Mohamed Morsi, who was overthrown by a military coup last year, as well as secular opponents of the regime and intellectuals.

Now that it has become clear the Orioles will be without third baseman Manny Machado for the remainder of the season, the club's front office is going to have to decide just how confident it is in the ability of the current roster to hold on to the top spot in the American League East and make a strong postseason run. And that's not the only troublesome question Orioles executive vice president Dan Duquette and manager Buck Showalter will have...

President Clinton's crusade to overhaul the nation's $900-billion-a-year health care system reaches another crossroads tomorrow when he sends one of the most sweeping legislative proposals in the nation's history to Capitol Hill. Once it arrives, perhaps 3,000 pages thick, it will become the obsession of the 103rd Congress until it finally adjourns to face the voters in November 1994.Washington lawmakers are well aware the president has already accomplished one of his major aims: Health care reform is front and center on the nation's political agenda.

Wisdom says that most of us will come upon at least one crossroads in life. For Dorothy Moore -- Dottie to her friends -- the crossroads came in threes.The first was nearly 20 years ago, when her 19-year-old son was beaten to death outside the Wilde Lake Interfaith Center. Consumed by grief, she had nothing left but rage for the man who killed her son. She sat in the courtroom during his trial and found herself at a second crossroads, when she realized that her son's assailant also had a mother and father, grieving over what had happened.

COLLEGE PARK-- -- If you haven't seen it, here's what the crossroads looks like: There's wall-to-wall carpeting and a giant school logo covering much of the floor. There's a flat-screen TV hanging on one wall and wooden lockers lining the other three. And there are photos of each member of the Maryland men's basketball team and 24-inch stools in front of each locker. This is where each player sat during halftime last night and considered the only two directions possible. When the pivotal game against Florida State had reached its midpoint, the Terps entered the locker room as one team and a few minutes later exited as a different one. There will be bigger games and maybe the meaning of last night's 73-55 win over the Seminoles will fade with time.

My tablemates at Tark's Grill had never dined there before, so I gave them a brief history lesson. I told them about Harvey's, the restaurant that flourished in this Green Spring Station location for about 20 years, from the early 1980s to 2000, and about the string of ambitious restaurants that moved into the space after Harvey's closed. None of them lasted long, and the location began to feel jinxed. Then Tark's opened in 2008, and all was right again. Now, as then, the secret to the success of Tark's was a simple formula.

York Road is the main thoroughfare in downtown Towson and those commuters who travel it on a daily basis know the congestion around the intersection of York and Burke Avenue during rush hour. The crossroads have been deemed by the county as a failing intersection, meaning congestion is a critical issue because the crossroads cannot handle the amount of vehicles it sees at a given time. However, Baltimore County officials say the stretch of York Road just north of Burke Avenue is exempt from a development moratorium in place near failing intersections — according to its annual Basic Services Map, which designates infrastructure and traffic needs across the county.

When you paint on a wall in the middle of the city, people want to talk to you. They want to tell you how they would have painted things differently, choosing a different shade of green or a different subject entirely. They want to know why you're there. They want to tell you their stories. "You did that, man?" they ask. "That is all right. " For six days last month, the artist known as Gaia painted on the side of a Korean rice cake factory in the 2000 block of N. Charles St. in Station North.

The Chasseur is a likable enough tavern. Think of it as the kind of place where you can sit down for a good square meal of well-prepared comfort food and then, if you're feeling perky, spend some time at the adjacent bar with your friends and neighbors. There's potential for The Chasseur to be more than just likable. Given time and effort, The Chasseur could develop into something even better — a winning tavern. Here we're talking about a place you'd work into your schedule, maybe spread the word about, or, if it's really special, keep it to yourself.
