"Perhaps not as conservative as might have been expected from a Republican president addressing a Republican Congress, the message nevertheless was much farther to the right than would have been anticipated if the Democrats had been returned to power."The Sun, Page 1, Jan. 7, 1947.Bill Clinton, meet Harry Truman. Forty-seven years ago, President Truman delivered the first Democratic State of the Union speech to a Republican Congress in over a quarter-century. He was, as President Clinton was last Tuesday, conciliatory and dropped several pet programs from the agenda he had pushed the previous two years, to a Democratic Congress.

When it comes to thinking about people with Down syndrome, Katie Hudson wants the world to take a cue from her 6-year-old daughter, Maddie. "She always says, 'We're all a little different, and that's what makes us the same,'" Hudson said. "She gets it. " That's why Maddie will be walking in honor of her brother, Logan -- and more than 400 others will make strides for inclusion and awareness for people with Down syndrome -- at the First Annual Baltimore Buddy Walk on Nov. 2 at Padonia Park Club in Cockeysville.

Dan Janes points to one photograph, then another and another on the walls of his Towson office, to black-and-white images of such pool-shooting legends as Willie Mosconi, Luther Lassiter and Eddie "The Knoxville Bear" Taylor. "I made him one," Janes says. "He had a couple. This guy gave them to governors and mayors." Janes is talking about cues. For decades, he has crafted his Joss cues for many who have made the game of pool their livelihoods, whether in smoky pool halls or glitzy television tournaments.

When the Obama administration unveils its plan today for fighting climate change by clamping down on power plant emissions, it will try to get the rest of the nation to join an effort already underway in Maryland and a number of other states. Environmental Protection Agency Administrator Gina McCarthy is expected to announce rules under the Clean Air Act to cut carbon pollution from existing power plants, the single largest source of climate-warming emissions in the United States.

The Orioles appear destined to finish with the fifth-worst record in baseball - cue the derisive applause - which will position them for another prime pick in next year's draft. The real good news: They've proved over the past two years that they know how to make the most of an early pick, as evidenced by the success of Matt Wieters during his first full professional season and the consensus around baseball that Brian Matusz was the most advanced pitcher in this year's draft.

THE AIR is smoky. Twenty or 30 folks, mostly middle-aged men in jeans or sweat pants, stand casually around the tables between the occasional family and, always, the several elderly regulars who spend most of their waking hours here. Teens sometimes show up to play, but generally the pool hall feels like Adults Only. Pool is a game for thinkers. The pool ball, depending more or less on the age and condition of the walls of the table (and the presence or absence of spin), will bank in a line that is symmetric to a line perpendicular to the wall.

When Bob Zealor was growing up in Overlea, he would go into the woods near his home and collect greens to make a wreath for his mother. You can imagine his delight when he discovered Colonial Williamsburg, where all the holiday decorations come from nature. All these years later, the interior designer and his wife Maureen make regular Christmas pilgrimages to Williamsburg, Va., which has become the inspiration for his holiday decorating. "It is homey. It is real. The greens, the fruit.

There was a brief explosion of optimism from those supporting same-sex marriage in Maryland last week after a poll by Hart Research Associates indicated that voters in the state support it by a significant margin of 54-40. No state has ever approved gay marriage at the ballot box, but advocates here and elsewhere - The New York Times published a piece titled "Hopeful news from Maryland" - contend that the issue hasn't polled this well before either. They shouldn't get too excited just yet. Gay marriage is an issue in which polls don't necessarily reflect what voters will actually do at the ballot box because it is increasingly politically incorrect to oppose such nuptials.

I read in The Sun that the state is limiting the hospitals that it regulates to a very slight increase in rates ("Maryland allows hospitals slight increase in rates," May 3). According to the article, under current economic conditions, state regulators chose to keep the hospitals from raising their rates in order to protect the public. The overall combined rate increase was held to .3 percent. If only these same people can get the message to the politicians in Annapolis who are about to convene a special session in order to raise taxes.

Go ahead, drink the Purple Kool-Aid. Lift up those wine glasses, and toast the Ravens. After completing the first quarter of the season, the Ravens are 3-1 and in sole possession of first place in the AFC North. There are five other teams in the conference with the same record, but they aren't as good as the Ravens. Unfortunately, the Lombardi Trophy isn't presented to the NFL champion until February, but drink while you can. Maybe in the next couple of months, the Ravens will sweeten the drink, but Ravens fans can at least enjoy the taste for another two weeks before the Houston Texans visit Baltimore.

Two days after coach John Harbaugh called Michael Oher's habit of moving early “illogical,” the starting right tackle said he intends to clean up the false starts. “It's something that can be taken care of,” Oher said prior to Wednesday's practice. “It's about being cued in and getting it done.” Oher, who led the team in false starts with eight last season, avoided moving early in the season-opening 35-7 victory over the Pittsburgh Steelers Sept. 11, but he was flagged twice for false starts in Sunday's 26-13 loss to the Tennessee Titans.

When Baltimoreans turn on the TV and see Donna Hamilton, they see a comfortable, familiar face — someone they probably think they know, someone they might want to sit down with for a cup of tea. Her home, it turns out, has the same feel. The longtime anchor for WBAL-TV has spent years working to create a home that feels effortless. Lived in for 30 years now, the Baltimore house, a cottage really, is the sort of place with a cozy, lived-in aesthetic. Altogether underdesigned — by design.

Tom "Dr. Cue" Rossman staged his seven-hour, trick-shot pool exhibition in the University of Maryland, Baltimore County Commons game room, which meant he competed against televisions, Ping-Pong tables, computers and video games for students' attention. It took more than a rapid-fire scattering of balls into side and corner pockets to make him the focal point. He had to take his shoes off. As about 30 students watched with curiosity last week, the World Masters Trick Shot champion stood a shoe heel-side-down against a platform about 3 feet from the table.

He has performed on Broadway, in film and on TV. But when a decidedly amateur troupe at a Baltimore County elementary school invited him to work on their show, Eric Anthony jumped right in, eager to play mentor and share his talent — this time behind the scenes. Jamea Rice-Coleman had donned long brown dog ears for a lead role in "Let Sleeping Beauties Lie," Edmondson Heights Elementary's winter production. On stage, she easily mastered the charming side of Dogg, her canine character.
