Carolyn Jacobi's broad-brimmed hat and cape stood out bright red against a gray afternoon recently at Rosa Bonheur Memorial Park in Elkridge, a combined pet and human cemetery, the latest stop in her 18-year national crusade for the buried dead and their loved ones. In a voice ringing with a preacher's passion, she told some three dozen people protesting possible development that she would fight to protect cemeteries "as long as God puts breath in my body, as long as I have a brain.

At the end of the six months Hart Crane spent on Isle of Pines, off the coast of Cuba, from May to October of 1926, a hurricane passed over the island and all but destroyed Villa Casas, the defunct plantation his maternal grandfather had built. One of the reasons Crane had gone to the Caribbean was to undertake repairs on the house and grounds that his grandmother and mother had long neglected. But the storm more or less settled the fate of the family estate, as well as put an end to the most productive period of writing Crane would ever experience.

Readers of this blog are aware by now that I have inveighed for years against the current journalistic tendency to label nearly anything an icon or iconic . Let me explain why that is not a mere cavil. An icon is not a person; an icon is an image. In the Eastern Orthodox tradition, an icon is a portrait of a saint or a painting of a scene from Scripture. Iconoclasts object to the veneration of icons as praying to mere objects, but that is a vulgar misunderstanding. An icon in this tradition is a window into the next world, into eternity, and the devout worshiper attempts to transcend this world and communicate with the eternal one through that window.

Daniel Taradash, 90, who won an Oscar for his screenplay adaptation of James Jones' best-selling novel From Here to Eternity, died of cancer Feb. 22 at a Los Angeles hospital. Best known for adapting sprawling novels and Broadway plays, Taradash's screenwriting credits include writing or co-writing adaptations of Clifford Odets' Golden Boy, William Inge's Picnic and James Michener's Hawaii. But From Here to Eternity, the 1953 film version of Jones' novel about Army life in Hawaii during the months leading up to the attack on Pearl Harbor, was the one movie for which Taradash said he received the most compliments.

Silver liningBrrrrr. The frosty economic climate is nipping at the toes of hundreds of local businesses, occasionally even freezing the life out of the unprotected. Certain retailers, though, find the harsh conditions bracingly refreshing: Gage Menswear, for one.

HAVRE de GRACE -- Sunday morning. The morning of the Seventh Day.Depending on the nature of the household and the habits of its occupants, this might be the time for a hickory-smoked cholesterol fix. For a jog down quiet suburban streets. For earnest banalities on Washington interview shows. For sleeping in.For some, Sunday morning means nice clothes and formal Sunday services, the comfort of familiar prayers and sacred music. For others, not necessarily the less devout, it can be an occasion for more private reflections on life, on time, on eternity, on death.

With a new baseball season comes new hope, and there's reason to believe that hope may be justified this summer for IronBirds watchers. Granted, since June 18, 2002, the three months of regular minor league baseball available at Ripken Stadium in Aberdeen has been a dependable source of a little good clean fun. Whether the home team would win or lose, on the field, the experience of going to the ballpark and taking in the sights and sounds has...

"If there is anything that links the human to the divine, it is the courage to stand by a principle when everybody else rejects it. " -- Abraham Lincoln History is full of warnings about what happens when people follow public opinion instead of standing by their principles. In its most extreme manifestation, public opinion might well become mob rule when vigilantes take the law into their own hands. Major media have whipped the crowd into its latest frenzy over same-sex marriage, or should I say "marriage equality," the latest euphemism, likely intended to make the masses more accepting of what was once unacceptable.

Growing up in Rome, not far from Saint Peter's Basilica (whose dome I could see from my parents' bedroom) I did not think much of my circumstance. I thought it was just normal to drive my scooter by the Vatican walls and to see the Swiss guards seriously guarding the entrance to Vatican City. I also thought it normal to be able to go into Vatican City (as my father was a Vatican employee) to buy cheaper gas and imported goods free of the high Italian taxes. It is only after moving to America that I realized the exceptional luck of my youth.

As Americans are being lulled into believing our wars are winding down, I was appalled to read Robert Koehler's recent commentary about U.S. power in the world ("Can an empire show compassion?" Aug. 5). Do I want to live in a hyper-militarized American empire? Absolutely not. There is nothing in our Constitution to mandate we dominate the planet, and if history is any guide, such a philosophical change spells disaster. It's despicable that we have more than 1,000 military bases worldwide and simultaneously have created a form of armed intervention based on presidential whim.

Let's get metaphysical. That's the right frame of mind for viewing the abstract compositions in Richard Hellman 's exhibit in the Himmelfarb Gallery at Tai Sophia Institute in Laurel. Indeed, "The Inner Circle: Screenprints and Etchings" has cosmic aspirations. This Baltimore-based artist relies upon an imagistic vocabulary of astronomically evocative spirals. He also uses circles and wavy lines that you're free to metaphorically interpret in terms of everything from natural forms to the very nature of existence.

I have a teenager. If you have your own teen, or have been where I am now, you understand. If you have a young child, just wait. It's another magical parenting experience that I would not, honestly, trade for anything. Well, perhaps I would trade it for a good night's sleep or eternal youth, or a wrinkle-free face, or my sanity. Having a teenager has made me completely insane. I'm more bonkers than I was already. The most recent verbal sparring took place in my car while I was driving Alex to a doctor appointment.

The crowd of about 1,000 surrounding his new statue showered the greatest glove man in the history of the hot corner with a spirited and loving ovation at Saturday's unveiling ceremony. Then something quite unusual happened. Brooks Robinson wept. "I haven't had an applause like that in a long time, believe me," he said, choking up along the way. "Thank you very much. " It was a very special tribute to a very special Baltimore legend, but nobody knew how special it would feel until Robinson had trouble finding the words to thank all the people who came together on a cool afternoon outside Camden Yards to show their appreciation for his great baseball career and a life so well lived.
