Bus drivers and aides employed by a Baltimore schools contractor say that unsafe conditions such as fires and mold spores are endangering lives and unfair wages are threatening their livelihoods. The grievances were aired Thursday at a rally of employees of Durham School Services, a national company that transports children in more than 350 school districts. Since 2002, the city has contracted with Durham, which earned an estimated $15.5 million over the last three school years. The company's buses transport about 928 students.

Writer-director Ron Shelton (Bull Durham, White Men Can't Jump, Tin Cup) spent five years playing infield in the Orioles' minor league system. He was a little guy, which was shocking at first, with short arms, thick glasses and an easy smile. They called him "Dalko" and guys liked to hang with him and women wanted to take care of him and if he walked into a room in those days he was probably drunk. He had a record 14 feet long inside the Bakersfield, Calif., police station, all barroom brawls, nothing serious, the cops said.

Bull Durham contains so much pungent dialogue you'd never guess its greatest speech wound up on the cutting-room floor. In the script to the first film written and directed by Ron Shelton, a former second baseman in the Baltimore Orioles' farm system, veteran minor-league catcher Crash Davis (Kevin Costner) asks baseball muse and groupie Annie Savoy (Susan Sarandon), "Why baseball?" Annie explains: "If you know where home plate is, then you know where first base is, and second, and everything else - 'cause they're always in the same place in relation to home.

DURHAM, N.C.-- --Interstate 40 stretches from California to North Carolina. You could say it's like an asphalt belt wrapping around the country's midsection, but I look at a small stretch of it and see something different. From Durham to Memphis, Tenn., I-40 is lined with tradition-rich basketball universities, their logos and mascots dangling off the freeway like charms on a bracelet. Blue Devils, Tar Heels, Wildcats, Bulldogs, Tigers and several more. My journey - which will measure 750 miles before I'm finished and should cross paths with not only some of the nation's top teams, but also some of its most unique characters, programs and fan bases - begins off Ninth Street.
