The nation embraced Paul Wiedorfer and put his name on a medal. But Wiedorfer wants to talk about the guys who never came home. The Germans threw up their arms and surrendered to Wiedorfer. But he and five old friends wonder if the governor and the mayor will do the same.History moves in funny ways. Nearly half a century since its close, some who served in World War II wonder how much value their sacrifice still holds. Wiedorfer won the nation's highest military award, the Medal of Honor.

The five-hour cease fire between Hamas and Israel in the Gaza Strip was the calm before the storm. Hamas rockets began raining down on Israel at the moment the United Nations-requested lull ended on Thursday afternoon. Israel waited a bit longer - three hours or so - before resuming air strikes but then followed with a long-anticipated ground offensive aimed at eliminating so-called "terror tunnels" that allow militants access to Israeli territory. For the moment, Egyptian efforts to broker a truce appear to have amounted to nothing, and the prospects for a more permanent peace appear dim, indeed.

Have you ever been in a room and had the lights dim when some major appliance or electric space heater is turned on? People frequently wonder why this happens and what to do about it. Usually, it means that the appliance and the lights are drawing from the same circuit. Appliances with large motors, such as compressors in air conditioners and refrigerators, draw a large amount of current while the motor is starting. This current surge causes a corresponding voltage drop on the circuit, which will cause lights connected to the circuit to dim. To avoid the effects of these voltage drops on other electrical devices in the house, major appliances should be connected to dedicated circuits, serving only the appliance.

As the prospect of a $1.6 billion merger between Jos. A. Bank Clothiers Inc. and Men's Wearhouse dimmed, investors retrenched Monday, pushing down shares of both retailers much further than the broader market decline. The market reacted after a weekend in which Hampstead-based Jos. A. Bank rejected a Men's Wearhouse request to negotiate. Bank also raised antitrust concerns in a letter sent Sunday to Men's Wearhouse CEO Douglas S. Ewert, after the Federal Trade Commission questioned the merger.

AMERICAN POLICY in Bosnia is built upon a shaky framework of political fiction, unrealistic deadlines and military muscle. Only the latter category is succeeding. The NATO-led force of heavily-armed troops has separated the Serb, Croat and Muslim armies along 1,000 kilometers of ethnic hostility. But the danger remains that this huge effort may be in vain -- that once international peacekeepers depart, Bosnia's warring tribes will resume their struggle.The chief political fiction is a Croat-Muslim federation that Gen. George Joulwan, the supreme NATO commander, charitably describes as "very fragile."

The start of daylight-saving time today means darker mornings. Sunrise today jumps from 6:28 a.m. in Baltimore to 7:28, making the morning as dim as it was on Jan. 4. We won't recapture that lost morning light until April 15. Happily, sunset occurs after 7 p.m. now, and will advance daily, reaching its latest at 8:37 p.m. on June 27.

When I remember now the love we shared,The tenderness with which we used to reachone another when the moment flaredInto a passion that consumed us each;When I remember all the sweet concernThat sheltered us from angry wind and storm,The loyalty that steadfastly did burnTo keep our hearts and spirits ever-warm;When I remember all of this, it seemsLike some hallucination I have framedThat has the essence of dim, distant dreamsWhere all that was is nothing as...

Women and the Cairo ConferenceIf we credit Mr. Berger with both saying what he means andmeaning what he says, we are left with two dominant concerns.On one level, he appears to be telling us that in order to preserve the appearance of tolerance people should disguise their true attitudes by using socially acceptable expressions that speak on multiple levels simultaneously.If you talk about "urban" violence or "inner-city" ills, your intended audience will know whom you are talking about. This has become such a common mode of expressing racial and ethnic attitudes that for many years social scientists have identified it as an integral component of what we call "the new prejudice."

TIME WILL NOT dim the glory of their deeds, nor - for the moment - will the wrecking ball. The destruction of Memorial Stadium, originally scheduled to commence tomorrow, has been stalled by last week's vote by the state Board of Public Works - William Donald Schaefer and Richard Dixon stepping up to the plate - temporarily putting off both the old ballpark's destruction and the dismantling of the 110-foot plaque honoring the nation's war dead that was...

Time shall not dim the glory of these Memorial Stadium letters. After the demolition of the stadium on 33rd Street, scheduled for December, the best-known line of the structure's distinctive dedication will be displayed at a new veterans memorial in Camden Yards, Maryland Stadium Authority officials announced yesterday. They also set Oct. 7 as a rain-or-shine date for a public auction in Memorial's center field of stadium memorabilia. The event will continue the next day if necessary.

I would like to suggest that our county officials need to practice what they preach - Choose Civility. Recently after coming back from an event in Baltimore City we returned via Route 175 and were shocked to see the bright lights of Blandair on full blast at just after 10 p.m. It was the first time that we became aware of why some of our fellow residents in Oakland Mills were so adamant in their dislike of these lights which are basically now in...

"VEEP" is the kind of series that separates HBO from almost every other channel or network making television these days. It takes great risks, dares to break new ground, includes some of the most imaginative artists working in the arts and aims for nothing less than absolute cultural relevance. Oh, yeah: It is also very, very funny in its snarky, off-beat, highly profane, single-camera way. That sensibility might take a little getting used to for some viewers. But give it a chance, and you will come to love the way it's used here to illuminate the darkness at the heart of our partisan-crazed, gridlocked and bleak national political life.

The General Assembly gave final approval today to Gov.Martin O'Malley's two Chesapeake Bay priority bills - one doubling the so-called "flush fee" to help pay for bay restoration efforts, and the other limiting development using septic systems. By a vote of 89-48, the Senate concurred this morning on relatively minor House amendments to the Bay Restoration Fund bill, HB446 , which would increase from $2.50 to $5 monthly the charge levied on most Maryland households and businesses to pay for upgrading the state's largest wastewater treatement plants.

What I struggle to understand about state Sen. Ulysses S. Currie is how someone who is described by his confederates as being "not the brightest" and "disorganized" could have chaired the Senate Budget and Taxation Committee. This fact seems to be overlooked in all the hubbub. How many other powerful government positions are filled with people who could be described the same way? Mr. Currie was at the very least lining his own pockets through the auspices of his elected position.

At lunch time, black paper mats and red napkins are set over the mahogany tables. At dinner, ecru linens lend a dressed-up air. At either meal, the Zen-like ambiance of the Red Pearl is relaxing and, as every good restaurant should be, conducive to a pleasant eating experience. The 200-seat restaurant on Lake Kittamaqundi, in Columbia's Town Center, is just over a year old and quietly earning a reputation for creative, well-prepared classic and more contemporary Chinese cuisine.

There has been a lot of hot air expelled over energy-efficient light bulbs. House Speaker John Boehner criticized President Barack Obama for "giving finger waggling lectures" about them, and commentators Glenn Beck and Rush Limbaugh have attacked Republican U.S. Rep. Fred Upton, the new head of the House Energy and Commerce Committee, as being a "socialist" and promoting "nannyism" because he co-sponsored legislation that promoted use of the greener bulbs....

The last time Maryland played Virginia Tech, the Hokies scored the game’s first dozen points. The 12-0 score and subsequent defeat seemed to stick with Maryland coach Gary Williams like a bad cold. So one can only imagine how the Maryland coach felt as the Hokies scored the game’s first five points in Tuesday night’s rematch and raced to a 10-point lead. This time, Maryland rallied to take the lead but couldn’t hold it in a 91-83 Virginia Tech victory.

The national wave for Republicans turned into a mere ripple by the time it reached the races for the Maryland General Assembly on Tuesday, as most Democrats perceived as vulnerable defeated their challengers. Democratic House Speaker Michael E. Busch, openly targeted for defeat by Republican gubernatorial candidate Robert L. Ehrlich Jr., won re-election in his three-member Annapolis district. Senate President Thomas V. Mike Miller Jr., whom Ehrlich had said Republicans would "medicate" in order to get along with him better, coasted to re-election in Prince George's and Calvert counties.
