It's been a long time comin', but the Diary of a Wimpy Kid books by University of Maryland alum Jeff Kinney are finally being released as ebooks. The first six books in the wildy popular series about meek middle schooler Greg Heffley will be available to download Oct. 30. The latest, "Diary of a Wimpy Kid: The Third Wheel," will be released as an ebook and hardcover on Nov. 13. All of the ebooks will be branded as Wimp-E-Books. It's suprising that it took so long, because Kinney -- a 1993 grad of UMd's Department of Criminology and Criminal Justice -- is no stodgy, digital novice.

Dear Diary: Looks as though our folks must finally come clean on Benghazi. In my defense, the attack on our consulate occurred in the middle of my re-election campaign. Mitt Romney and the Republicans were banging me pretty good about foreign policy failures - particularly our new "leading from behind" strategy in dealing with the world's trouble spots. They seemed to forget I was elected on a platform to bring the boys and girls home, regardless of consequences! To make matters worse, Mr. Romney and his cowboy allies were alleging a retreat in the war on terror … er, our "overseas contingency operations.

SEN. Bob Packwood is not the only one who kept a diary while serving in the Senate. And that's a serious problem. The Senate Ethics Committee may subpoena all the journals that its members produced during their years of government service.Sen. Rabelais is one of those who kept a diary, and in many ways it's hotter than Bob's. I filched a copy from the Senate cloakroom and here are some takeouts."Dear Diary: I was walking down the hall to my office when this girl came up and pushed me. I pushed her back and she pushed me again.

"To day has bin a memorable day," Emilie Frances Davis wrote in a miniature diary on Jan. 1, 1863, the date the Emancipation Proclamation became law. "I thank God I have bin here to see it. The day was religiously observed, all the churches were open. We had quite a Jubilee in the evening. I went to Joness to a party, had a very blessest time. " Davis, a 21-year-old seamstress and freeborn black woman living in Philadelphia, was jotting down her feelings about the event that came to be known as Jubilee Day in one of three pocket diaries she kept from 1863 to 1865 during the height of the Civil War. The diaries, which somehow avoided destruction, are being published now for the first time.

Washington -- LIKE EVERYONE else, I smacked my lips at the revelations in a young U.S. Treasury Department aide's diary of the president being "furious" at a friend's decision to remove himself from the Whitewater line of fire.Like everyone else, I derided the aide's ludicrous attempts to wriggle away from his written record -- as, for example, in his description of a high official's attempt to deceive a Senate committee with half-truths as "gracefully ducking" questions.And like everybody else, I missed the central point of the exercise: What right does Congress -- or the cops, for that matter -- have to pry into anybody's personal diary?

THE DIARY OF my grandmother, Mary Gresham Machen, painstakingly maintained every day from 1890 until her death in 1931, records many perceptive comments about the Baltimore scene over the years. But few are more poignant than her report of the Great Fire of 1904. Her husband, Arthur W. Machen, was the first of three Baltimore lawyers in succession to bear that name. They lived in a spacious house at 217 W. Monument St., now the site of the Maryland Historical Society on the crest of Mount Vernon hill with a commanding view of the city to the south and east.

THE SKINNY: Welcome to the world of "The X-Factor. " From the start of Wednesday night's premiere, the "X" would take the foundations of "American Idol" - high drama, big lights and heartfelt stories - and build for the sky. This was an emotionally draining show, with stories of poor families, down-on-their-luck talents and even a meth-addict fresh out of rehab. If you feet that "Idol" has gotten stale in recent seasons (and it has, with its predictable guy-with-a-guitar winners)

Right from the start, I knew we would have problems in our relationship. We were too much alike, he and I. Type A. Achievers. The kind who love lists and checking things off. The kind who love control. And yet, as the new year rolled in with all its resolutions and promises of change, I made a commitment to him. I downloaded the app to my phone and linked myself for the foreseeable future to MyFitnessPal. He made promises, and I did, too. But could we keep them? After all, we both wanted the same thing: We were determined to get rid of the eight pounds that had crept onto my frame in the last year.

I had a great week. I'm on top of everything. Nothing has changed since being at IMG Academy. I'm eating good. I'm taking care of business. I'm working out and spending time with my family. We had a nice get-together at my mom's house. We play card games, mostly spades. I'm just starting to play. My grandfather was my partner in spades. He's doing pretty good. There's still a little piece of cancer left in his stomach. He's in high spirits. He's staying strong. He has a positive attitude.
