The national League of Conservation Voters named former U.S. Rep. Helen Delich Bentley yesterday to its "dirty dozen" list of the most anti-environment congressional candidates in the nation, lambasting her for votes against increased corporate responsibility for pollution, wetlands protections and water and air quality regulations. In her 10 years in Congress, Bentley had the worst environmental voting record of anyone in the Maryland delegation and one of the worst in the nation, said Betsy Loyless, the organization's political director.

It's a pretty well known fact that I want to go out drinking with the “Top Chef” contestants. Whenever the cheftestants are in the stew room or come back tired and beat from an elimination challenge, I want to jump through my TV and pound some pinot with them. So when this week's show opened with them drinking in their hotel room, I had a very good feeling about this episode. Quickfire Challenge Chef Tim “Tough” Love is the special guest at this week's Quickfire Challenge.

They are young and old, recycled and reborn, a group that -- with the exception of one game -- has been exceptional.Dubbed "The Dirty Half-Dozen" by Kevin Hickey, their name suggests a swagger, a presence, an attitude that says no situation can intimidate them.But the Baltimore Orioles' new six-man bullpen is more a creation of manager John Oates than a band of roughnecks overrunning everything.From closer Gregg Olson to submariner Todd Frohwirth, whose promotion from the Class AAA Rochester Red Wings completed the group, their roles are well-defined.

Law enforcement officials yesterday arrested nine people - including at least one police say is part of the city's "dirty dozen," Baltimore's most elusive violent repeat offenders - after 18 federal raids that netted heroin, automatic weapons and bags of cash. It was the second major takedown in two days. On Wednesday, officers raided a West Baltimore home and seized roughly seven kilos of heroin, $200,000 in cash and automatic weapons in a separate case. Four were arrested in that investigation; a fifth suspect, Mark "Doughboy" Owens, who police also count among the "dirty dozen," is still at large.

They weren't playing Kansas City anymore. That was obvious last night to Rodrigo Lopez, who paid for his every mistake; to the Orioles' lineup, which found base hits extremely difficult to come by; and to the home fans, who had little to cheer about and would have been likely drowned out by Boston Red Sox supporters anyway. The latest contest between the Orioles and Red Sox went much like they always seem to at Camden Yards. Red Sox starter Josh Beckett overwhelmed Orioles hitters, Lopez was pounded yet again in his worst performance of a highly disappointing season and the Orioles fell, 11-1, before 25,607.

THE MOST memorable trip pro football Hall of Famer Jim Brown made to Baltimore is one local sports fans likely recall with mixed feelings -- it was a Sunday in November 1959 when the Cleveland Browns running back scored five touchdowns against the Baltimore Colts and led his team to a 38-31 victory. Brown will be in Baltimore again Friday night, at the invitation of Michael Johnson, owner of the Heritage Cineplex on Taylor Avenue in Towson. Brown will help kick off a Kwanzaa celebration and pick up a lifetime achievement award, not for football, but for his film career.

With a title like generic rat poison and an aesthetic that resembles commercials pitched for late-night comedy and wrestling shows, XXX begs to be declared an espionage film for the under-30 set. It's really just antiquated goods with the varnish scraped away and the design simplified and coarsened. The hero is reluctant good guy Xander Cage (Vin Diesel), a renegade extreme sportsman who makes his living selling daredevil videos of stunts like jacking a conservative senator's car and driving it off a bridge.
