The Baltimore Police Department has made wholesale changes to the leadership of the unit that patrols the city's Inner Harbor in the wake of a highly publicized incident in which an officer berated a young skateboarder, put the boy in a headlock and then threw him to the ground. A new lieutenant and a new sergeant took command of the 12 officers charged with patrolling the area from Fells Point to Harbor East. Lt.

Last week Colton quit and John got voted out and was sent to Redemption Island to compete against his wife. But apparently this week is the most. Shocking. Episode. Ever. We'll see. We start out with John heading to Redemption Island, where Candace thinks he got voted out because he was too trusting. In his defense, he was blindsided pretty well. It's not like it was obvious and he was oblivious. Back at Tadhana, Caleb is a little worried that he won't have as much value to his tribe, because he doesn't have a counterpart on Galang since Colton quit.

T here's good news for any of us who have one of those ill-advised nude photo sessions in our past. Scott Brown's election to the U.S. Senate means those indiscretions no longer matter. The voters in Massachusetts sent the buff Republican to Washington despite pictures of him in the buff in Cosmopolitan magazine back in 1982, when he was a student struggling to pay his law school bills. Is this America, or what? In this country, anybody can sell pictures of their body and still grow up to single-handedly derail health care reform during his first week on the job. I hope they let the Miss America people know about this.

The winner of this year's "America's Got Talent" has pretty much been decided already -- it will be William Close and his earth harp -- and so, we're really watching to see who can continue to hack it, at least. You'll also notice that with the stakes this high, judges Howard Stern, Sharon Osbourne, and Howie Mandel tended to stay neutral or positive, as to not sway voters too much. The first act up was David Garibaldi and his CMYK's. In the pre-performance film, the energetic geek managed to follow up a "Star Wars" reference with a "Star Trek" one when he explained that, "This is the time where creativity goes in hyper-speed," then added, "this is the moment to bring it, creatively we just want to go to a place where no one's gone before.

After First Dude's runner-up finish to Lookin At Lucky in Saturday's 135th Preakness Stakes, he'll be looking to move up a notch at the Belmont Stakes on June 5. First Dude won't have to face Kentucky Derby winner Super Saver or Lookin At Lucky, who won't be running in the Belmont. However, he will likely have to run against another Bob Baffert-trained horse in the Belmont, Game on Dude, winner of the Lone Star Derby. Baffert, who won his fifth Preakness Stakes on Saturday, said this morning at Pimlico Race Course that it would be a "Battle of the Dudes."

The 1œ-mile Belmont Stakes was a bit more than First Dude could handle as he finished third. He was a game pacesetter three weeks ago in the Preakness, setting all the fractions in the 1 3-16 mile middle jewel of the Triple Crown. He held on for second, beaten only by three quarters of a length. The gameplan was the same in the Belmont. Jockey Ramon Dominguez sent the strapping colt right to the front and they set a very sensible pace in the longest of the Triple Crown races.

To the cyclist who apparently lost his mind and was seen riding on busy York Road in Timonium a couple of Saturdays ago at about 1 in the afternoon:Hi, there. You may not remember me, but I was driving a green Ford Taurus station wagon, which tends to give me the same sexy look as an aging seminarian returning from bingo duty.Anyway, it was about 117 degrees in the shade, but you were in full Tour de France get-up: Spandex unitard, heavy-duty cycling shoes, dark racing gloves, dorky banana-shaped helmet, the whole 9 yards.

He was, as his older brothers used to say, a totally radical, awesome little dude.He was born with holes in his heart and a malformed brain. For much of his life, little Adam Hubbard lived tethered to a maze of medical equipment -- the oxygen tanks, the feeding tubes, the heart monitor in his Fallston home.Nobody really gave Adam much of a chance, not even his mother, who measured his progress in light-years while others saw only glimmers of hope.For Carmen Hubbard, each day was a gift."I can't worry about whether he's going to die tomorrow, whether he's going to stop breathing or his heart will stop.

ALBERTVILLE, France -- There was no "Eddie the Eagle" at these Winter Olympics, barreling down the ski jump ramp with his aquarium-thick glasses and fogged-up goggles. A pity. But, by golly, there was curling. Olympic dust-busting, baby. Go for it.The Jamaican bobsledders were back again, mon, but they're as mainstream as the Germans and Swiss now, worried more about push times than good times. No problem, though. There was still short-track speed skating: rollerball for valley girls. The Dude Olympics.

Baltimore escape artist Spencer Horsman returned to "America's Got Talent" last night to try and convince voters he's worth a wildcard spot. Horsman, one of Howard Stern's picks, was first up. Horsman, in a steampunk-like metal vest with eight padlocks, dropped himself into a booth that filled with 150 gallons of wet cement. "If I fail, I'll be buried alive," he announced in the pre-performance video. A big part of an escape artist's act is selling the drama and making the audience freak out over the fact that hey, they might die up there.

Well, a new season of "Survivor" has started, and yet again, it's going to be the most. exciting. ever.  It would be nice, just once, to see a promo that said “it's pretty good - maybe not as good as the All-Stars season, but it's decent.”  That, I'd make sure to watch. We start with paddling, as we have for pretty much all the Survivor seasons.  Do they get to choose what they wear, or do the producers choose for them? Because I'm thinking the lady in the suit (Edna?) chose poorly.

Sucker for romantic dramas with goosebump-inducing music? You're in luck. I had never heard of "Like Crazy" until today, even though it won major awards at Sundance. IMDB's description of the film sounds very dramatic: "A British college student falls for an American student, only to be separated from him when she's banned from the U.S. after overstaying her visa. " Drama! But I'm a sucker for the trailer, which hits all my secretly romantic heartstrings: Cute British girl, fun American guy, indie-ish music, frolics in the sunset, whispery bedroom talk.

This might be hard to believe, but I'm not the only music writer on the Internets. Each week I'll compile the pieces I think are worth checking out. Check out the first batch: Noz, who has run one of rap's most vital blogs for years, breaks down the new Lil B x Phonte x Jean Grae x 9th Wonder track "Base For Your Face. " Noz, an early Based God champion, makes the excellent point that it shouldn't be shocking to hear B on a 9th Wonder beat — he's been rapping over that style for a long time.

I am fond of skateboarders. One of my sons used to be one. When our young skater used to slip away from home, my wife and I knew chances were good that he was either at "the statue" in front of the Lyric Opera House or at "the bowl" in Lansdowne, working on his tricks. In those years, I learned that although many skaters looked "hard," they were good souls. But until I visited Johnny Rad's , I did not know that skaters were so fond of vegetables. Johnny Rad's, named after a character in a skateboard movie, sits in the 2100 block of Eastern Ave., next door to a firehouse and across the street from a duckpin bowling alley.

I am thinking about going to a dude ranch this summer. Do you have any suggestions or Web sites I can check out? If you want to live the City Slickers experience, look for a ranch that includes a cattle or horse drive in its itinerary (not all do). For instance, Rock Creek Pack Station, south of Yosemite National Park in the Sierra Nevada (rockcreekpackstation.com), offers four-day drives in which guests help move horses between ranges in June and September. It also has trail rides of three days or longer that include fishing and camping.
