When Jordan Page was a boy of 11 with a yen for acting, his greatest thrill was playing the Crown Prince in '"The King and I" onstage. Two decades later, in the middle of an odyssey that began on Maryland's Eastern Shore, he's starring in a real-life rock tour with lyrics a lot more volatile than "Shall We Dance" or "Getting to Know You. " As a singer and writer of protest songs that decry big government, big business and the military-industrial complex,...

When it comes to viral videos, the "boom goes the dynamite" guy was a first-ballot Hall-of-Famer. The video of Brian Collins, then an overwhelmed college sports broadcaster who bombed in epic fashion, has been viewed more than six millions times since it was uploaded to YouTube in 2005. My college buddies and I were probably responsible for at least one million of those hits , and his classic catchphrase -- "and boom goes the dynamite" -- has been a part of my lexicon ever since.

ALittle Deeper is a descriptive title. The CD is a trans-oceanic affair, recorded at South Beach Studios last year by a 21-year-old London rapper and singer. Don't let Ms. Dynamite's comic-book name lead to a dismissal. This is one sharp young woman. Her disc won Britain's prestigious Mercury Prize. Now that a sullen Lauryn Hill has all but sabotaged her thriving career, Ms. Dynamite deserves to occupy Hill's vacated throne. Merging styles - retro-soul, hip-hop and dancehall - Ms. Dynamite's reach exceeds her grasp, and this CD, too, is overlong, but her ambition is admirable.

PISCATAWAY, N.J.-- --It's a thin line sometimes that separates winning and losing. Sometimes we find victory in defeat, and sometimes we suffer losses in our biggest triumphs. One week after a monumental loss at Wake Forest, the Terps upset No. 10 Rutgers, 34-24, yesterday. In the process they lost their starting quarterback. And in the process, they maybe have found their No. 1 quarterback. Everything about last night's win was unlikely. We didn't need the final scoreboard to tell us that.

Given Chris Turner's resemblance to Napoleon Dynamite, maybe Maryland should hire Uncle Rico as quarterbacks coach. If you never saw the Dynamite movie, you might feel a little lost. Which might be where the Terps are right now with their quarterback situation. Ralph Friedgen had the chance to make Turner the starter heading into the season, but the coach chose Jordan Steffy instead. Now, after one game, Steffy is out at least three weeks, so Turner steps back into the job he held for the second half of last season, when he went 3-5 as a starter.

BARTON -- When Randy Preston sees a cloud of dust headed his way, he knows what to expect - more heavy trucks on their way to or from the surface coal mine on the mountain above his home. The dust and coal ash from the trucks coat his house in Allegany County, says the 43-year-old Barton native, and the rumble of the traffic past his bedroom wakes him hours before dawn. "Beginning at 3 a.m. they start going up, and by 4 o'clock they're hauling down," he says. Disabled with medical problems, Preston contends that the dust and din of traffic to and from the mine have contributed to a nonstop headache he has had for the past two years.

Celebrity baker Duff Goldman appears at Baltimore's Washington Monument tomorrow night to kick off the holiday season and, perhaps, precipitate a constitutional crisis. Surrounded by Gov.-elect Martin O'Malley, Mayor-to-be Sheila Dixon and City Council members, the host of the Food Network's Ace of Cakes will unveil a big cake that looks like the monument - and shoots fireworks 20 feet into the air. At least that was the plan until late last week, when a light bulb belatedly blinked on. "So here we are planning in the abstract about how great this is going to be to have this cake thing happen, and what great TV it will make, and somebody said, `Shouldn't we talk to fire marshal?

BOSTON -- Amid new anxiety about air travel and tough new regulations about what passengers can bring on planes, at least seven U.S. flights were involved in security incidents yesterday. In one case, a stick of dynamite was found to have been aboard a flight. The rash of events, safety consultants and others said, reflected both heightened emotions and appropriately tightened security following an alleged plot to blow up trans-Atlantic airliners that was thwarted this month by British authorities.
