If memory serves, the space that now houses Ding How used to be one of those kitsch emporiums that sold plaster lamps in the shape of Elvis Presley's head. That Elvis aesthetic -- so downscale-corny it's kind of cool -- is still in evidence in Fells If memory serves, the space that now houses Ding How used to be one of those kitsch emporiums that sold plaster lamps in the shape of Elvis Presley's head. That Elvis aesthetic -- so downscale-corny it's kind of cool -- is still in evidence in Fells Point, but it's gradually being replaced by businesses with pricier decor and more middle-class concerns.

It's just not safe to get married in Westeros these days. Ever since he ordered the beheading of the heroic Ned Stark in the first season of “Game of Thrones,” viewers have been patiently waiting for the insufferable boy-king Joffrey to die. (Preferably in as painful a manner as possible.)  Sunday night, they got their wish. Episode two of Season 4,“The Lion and the Rose,” written by George R.R. Martin himself (hallowed be his name), ends with the despicable teenage tyrant's poisoned face turning blue as blood drips from his mouth.

Ding How sits on a prime piece of real estate at Broadway and Aliceanna Street in Fells Point. Yet in a neighborhood where most restaurants are tiny and trendy, it is defiantly - or maybe obliviously - neither. While other Fells Point eating places are all about the hardwood floors and exposed brick walls, this boxy Chinese restaurant is appointed in '70s-era beige and bamboo. And forget au courant blues or pop tunes over the sound system. The music at Ding How is so awful that we actually found ourselves subjected to "Pomp and Circumstance."

There remains something of a mystery about Maryland receiver/returner Stefon Diggs' physical condition. On Wednesday, coach Randy Edsall confirmed what the media has suspected  -- that he's not completely himself physically. Edsall said Diggs "took a ding" against West Virginia on Sept. 21. But what sort of ding? Offensive coordinator Mike Locksley demurred when I asked about Diggs on Wednesday. Maryland has strict procedures about how and when to release injury information.

CHINESE food, once the most exotic of all "foreign" foods available in the United States, is now ubiquitous. Chances are good that there's a Chinese eatery near you - maybe called Lucky Dragon - regardless of whether you're in a city or the hills of eastern Kentucky. You know what's going to be on the menu, you know how it's going to taste, you even know each of the 12 Chinese astrological signs that appear on those paper place mats. So, in a neighborhood pockmarked with trendy places like Fells Point, you might walk right past Ding How (Chinese for "the best," proclaims the menu)

Heavyweight Jed Phipps is known as a big puncher, having knocked out 20 opponents in his 35 victories against five defeats. Phipps, who fights out of Jake "The Snake" Smith's Baltimore Boxing Club, lives for the big bout and doesn't shy away from competition. On occasion, though, the 23-year-old concrete laborer by day does avoid one person after long workdays: his 2-year-old daughter, Melissa. It's the only way he can keep the upstart toddler in her "terrible twos" from trying to follow him out the door to his evening workouts.

Maison Marconi, 106 W. Saratoga St., 727-9522. Part of the city's restaurant repertoire since 1920, Marconi's has a traditional menu and many loyal customers. One of Marconi's two dining rooms is large and rather formal; the other, more relaxed with bright floral wallpaper. For lunch, we found the food good, though not exceptional; the presentation ordinary, and the prices a bit high for the quantity and quality. Marconi's chocolate sundae, with luscious homemade sauce, was, however, even better than its reputation.

WHILE I'M always happy when the underdog wins, with last week's tobacco verdict I nonetheless fear we have stepped upon a slippery legal slope.To quickly recount a trial whose speed rivaled that of the Ice Age: A jury found Big Tobacco deliberately suppressed evidence linking smoking to disease.The plaintiffs stand to collect. They'd like $200 billion.When I heard about this verdict I asked: The evidence was covered up? I don't smoke, but I long ago surmised that burning a plant that oozes tar, then breathing the acrid fumes, is a bad way to train for the Boston Marathon.

The State Archives had inadequate procedures to prevent loss or employee theft of its $31.4 million art collection, and outdated software left its computers vulnerable to attack, an audit released Tuesday found. The Department of Legislative Services audit did not find evidence that computers had been hacked or art lost or stolen, but recommended the State Archives improve its oversight. State Archives officials agreed with the auditors' findings and said they have put into place the recommendations or will soon do so. The State Archives, with a $8.7 million annual budget, keep historically significant documents and art, as well as certain government and private records.

Prior to the season opener against the Pittsburgh Steelers, cornerback Lardarius Webb had insisted that he had forgotten his performance in the Ravens' seven-point loss to the Steelers in the AFC divisional round last January. His coaches apparently did the same. Webb joined Cary Williams as a starter in the team's 35-7 demolition of Pittsburgh Sunday at M&T Bank Stadium. Webb led the Ravens in tackles (11), broke up two passes, and split a sack with outside linebacker Jarret Johnson . "I worked my butt off during the lockout, I worked my butt off during training camp, and I worked my butt off this week to ensure that I was going to start," Webb said.

We are in so much trouble, boomers. I know, I can hear the Gen-XYZs saying, "Please, not another baby boomer whining about getting older." Well, bear with me here. Our pain might be your pain one day. I've just come back from visiting my mom. She lives in a large, Baltimore-area retirement community. She'll turn 95 this fall, but she still steams through the halls behind her walker as if the place were on fire. She calls it "playing golf," and walks the "links" at least three times a day. But she is struggling with vascular dementia (hardly anybody hits 90 without slipping a cog)

... SAN ANTONIO --Toyota's vaunted reputation for quality has taken a pounding lately. More than 2 million of the Japanese automaker's vehicles have been recalled worldwide, and there are still four full months to go in the year. Some analysts say Toyota will be able to shrug off the quality questions, thanks to decades spent building its reputation for reliability. Others say Toyota is on the cusp of falling into a funk that could be hard to surmount. "It's gonna be interesting to see what's going to happen in the next six months," said Karl Brauer, editor-in-chief of automotive Web site Edmunds.

BEIJING - The first time Ding Linfeng was ever given U.S. dollars, in 1992, he never actually put the currency in his wallet. The money came as a $100 check from an American company, and he took the check straight to the Bank of China, where he kept the money safe - in dollars, not the Chinese renminbi, or "RMB." "We didn't see RMB at that time as a real currency," Ding recalled, relaxing with a cup of coffee in a central Beijing Starbucks. For most Chinese, the U.S. dollar was "like gold," Ding said.

From: Anthony J. GirandolaSeverna ParkLast Saturday night, my wife and I looked forward to having a nice rest the next morning. The idea of sleeping late on Sunday was a refreshing one, especially since Daylight Savings Time would be taking effect. We figured we'd loll around in bed until 10 or so and still have plenty of time to get ready for the noon Mass at St. John's.At 6 in the morning, I heard this god-awful sound. It was loud and long like a school bell signaling the end of class. I sat upright in my bed and my wife screamed, "What is THAT?"

SAN FRANCISCO -- Oakland resident Dominique Pfaff had a little extra time before boarding a flight to her native France this summer, so she used her credit card to get 100 euros in pocket money from a foreign-exchange service at San Francisco International Airport. She knew there'd be some kind of conversion fee involved, but she didn't find out until her Bank of America statement arrived in August that she'd been hit with a $10 "cash advance fee." Also, there was a $1.43 finance charge because she hadn't yet paid off the cash advance.
