I only have 2 million other better things to write about. But after 24 hours of waiting for someone else to unload on Sean Hannity, the Fox News host who defines political stooge, I have to say something. I held off when this GOP tool ran around on the Texas border in sunglasses and a baseball hat on backwards with Gov. Rick Perry. I even ignored the picture Hannity tweeted of him with his arm over a machine gun as he posed in a boat on the Rio Grande alongside Perry -- who we now know is really an intellectual giant because he has glasses with thick rims.

The ability of the Towson men's basketball team to get to the hoop is exemplified in the talents of senior forwards Jerrelle Benimon and Marcus Damas and senior point guard Mike Burwell. In response, opponents are daring the Tigers (10-6 overall and 1-0 in the Colonial Athletic Association) to produce from the outside. As Towson prepares to play Drexel (9-6, 1-1) on Tuesday night, coach Pat Skerry said he has noticed that opposing teams are resorting to zone defenses against the Tigers, who have converted less than 37 percent of its attempts from behind the 3-point line in five of its last seven games.

It was a delight to see Dr. Ben Carson on The Sun's front page recently ("Controversial address vaults Hopkins' Carson into political arena," Feb. 18), and it was a stark contrast to the vitriolic online piece earlier by TV critic David Zurawik ("Hopkins' Dr. Benjamin Carson anointed new Fox darling of the right on Hannity," Feb. 16). Mr. Zurawik's hatred for Fox News came through loud and clear. He clearly was using Dr. Carson as a conduit to disparage Fox. No wonder he was critical of the way President Barack Obama appeared in a film shown on Sean Hannity's program Friday evening.

Attention national media: You know Martin O'Malley, defender of the underdog. It's time to get to know Martin O'Malley, thug. The Maryland governor, widely rumored to harbor presidential aspirations, canonized himself in the progressive movement for championing gay marriage and in-state tuition for some illegal immigrants in the last election. He also deftly weaved a portrait of Maryland as a green energy, public-education utopia during his many appearances on national cable TV news during election season as President Barack Obama's surrogate.

When I was in high school, the drama group traveled to Louisville to see a series of plays (my first experience of Sheridan's Rivals !). As we walked to the theater, a gentleman was handing out some kind of document. It was typed, single-spaced, with no margins. It appeared to describe some elaborate scheme or conspiracy, and the text was littered with biblical notations. It was the first, but not the last, such text I ever encountered, and I scanned it with mild interest before discarding it. Back in the day, people who had, in Jonathan Swift's words, given their wits an unlucky shake were to be found on street corners, shouting or distributing their dense texts.

I almost didn't become a writer. By the time I returned to Baltimore after a few years abroad, I already held three university degrees and was taking a break from my fourth. Just one requirement away from an MA in creative writing, I was the most over-credentialed storyteller I knew. I was also a chicken. Too afraid to try to earn a living allowing what I'd learned in urban planning courses to inform my writing on cities, I took a job with Baltimore's department of planning instead.

They called it the "seven minutes or terror" for the complex maneuverings and rocket blasts conducted in the final moments of a 354 million mile journey from home, but the Curiosity rover executed its landing flawlessly. Those who doubted U.S. preeminence in space exploration — or even in science and engineering in an era of outsourcing and global competition — should pay heed. Too bad there was no film crew on the surface of Mars (at least as far as we distant earthlings can tell)

Julien and Sophie, the central characters of Yann Samuell's wince-inducing Love Me If You Dare, are two of the most insistently unlikable movie creations to afflict audiences in some time, a pair of self-obsessed anti-romanticists who spend some two decades doing stupid things at each other's behest. They also whine a lot. Of such things are destructive relationships made, and Love Me If You Dare, I'm sure, sees itself as an extended metaphor for obsessive love, for how engulfing and overwhelming and gosh-darn pure it can be. Love is a force, the movie argues, that recognizes no bounds, not even those of common sense, certainly not those of common decency.

As Eliza Doolittle put it in "My Fair Lady": "Words, words words, I'm so sick of words!" Once again, in the wake of the latest shooting spree in Colorado, presidential candidates Barack Obama and Mitt Romney ran a race to the microphones to deplore it, with more words of sympathy than promises or plans to do anything about it.

Baltimore magician (and self-proclaimed "world's youngest escape artist") Spencer Horsman slipped out of a straightjacket and avoided almost certain death on last night's episode of "America's Got Talent. " Horsman, a 26-year-old who runs the South Baltimore bar Illusions with his father, had "America's Got Talent" host Nick Cannon strap him into a straight-jacket. He then hung upside down, between a set of metal jaws with nasty looking spikes, held open by a rope. The rope was set afire, and Horsman had a minute and 20 seconds to escape before the jaws clamped shut on him. "Do not try this at home," Cannon warned as Horsman's escape began.
