HERB SMITH the Western Maryland College political scienc prof and polling expert, sent us this intersting bit of Americana from the March 22 Election Administration Reports:"When neither the voters of Stanley County, S.D., nor the South Dakota Supreme Court was able to determine a winner of last November's election for state's attorney, the contestants settled the matter March 16 the old fashioned frontier way -- with a hand of stud poker."It seems Republican Curtis D. Mortenson edged out Democrat Bernard E. Duffy 703-702 on election night.

Anthony Swiderski said he was sitting in his Canton rowhouse Aug. 10, 2007, watching television, when he heard a bang outside, followed by screeching tires. His car had been hit, a hole punctured in the side, and a good Samaritan had taken down the tag number of the vehicle that sped away. The first responding police officer ran the number and looked up at Swiderski with a half-smile. "I work with her. She's a cop," Swiderski, 56, recalls the officer saying. What happened during the next 17 months might be frustrating for anyone who's been on the receiving end of a hit-and-run.

Although Richard "Moco" Yardley was a contemporary of Edmund Duffy, they might as well have lived on different planets, with Yardley inhabiting the more daft and distant of the two. Born in Baltimore in 1903, he became a hometown institution with his whimsical cartoons.He joined this newspaper in 1923 as an artist-retoucher for The Evening Sun and before the end of the decade had established himself as a backpage local cartoonist. His hilarious insights had Marylanders laughing as frequently as Duffy's angry cartoons moved them to outrage.
