The Billy Cundiff haters - and there are enough in this town to hold several conventions - are celebrating today. About time the Ravens unloaded that choker, they're saying. Good riddance. Guy cost the Ravens a shot at the Super Bowl. How do you miss a 32-yard chip shot in the AFC championship game? And how do you come back from a disaster like that? They make Cundiff sound like he was a psychological wreck, like he did five tours of duty in Afghanistan on a bomb disposal squad.

Three questions about work on Route 27I have three questions regarding the recent resurfacing of a part of Route 27 south of Westminster.First, why was this done? My neighbor agrees with me that we saw no need for this work to be done. The road seemed fine to those of us who use it regularly.Second, the new double yellow lines are solid all the way. The former lines were broken in a few spots where passing was legal. Now it looks as if there is no passing at all, even a straight stretch more than a half-mile long.

A majority of the teachers who left the Carroll County school system last year did so for more money or better benefits in other districts - in and outside of Maryland - according to an analysis of exit surveys. The results of exit surveys submitted by teachers who left during the 2004-2005 school year also revealed that a vast majority of them - nearly 75 percent - would recommend Carroll to a prospective employee and to potential students. More than 200 surveys were distributed to teachers who retired or quit during the school year and in August to those who left at the end of the school year, said Jimmie Saylor, the system's human resources director.

Ah, autumn. The days are shorter, the air is cooler, the leaves are falling and the hubcaps have turned orange.But wait, those aren't orange hubcaps. They're Denver boots.And while they may be as common as multi-colored leaves on city streets, they don't just dry up and blow away.Ask anybody who has had enough unpaid parking tickets to get the boot: They're popping up with greater frequency than ever before. And it's turned out to be a big moneymaker for Baltimore.Department of Public Works records show that from July of last year to September of this year, the city earned $1,788,607 from boots, and their best months have come since March: Revenues are up 45 percent over 1991.

DRIVING ALONG Northern Parkway can be challenging -- especially at rush hour. But just try to find the exit onto Perring Parkway. In fact, it would take X-ray vision to find this loop.Herb Rosenberg, who has been driving on Northern Parkway for 25 years, complained to Intrepid One that the exit is unmarked.An investigation into the matter showed that, indeed, there is no sign -- drivers must rely on instinct or experience to find the right path.Those familiar with quirky Baltimore roads know there's only one way to get from Northern to Perring -- and then only when traveling east and intending to head north: Hang a right at the barnlike apartment buildings.

PORT ST. LUCIE, Fla. -- The Orioles started playing games, and Tom McCraw didn't need to play along. He got a better offer, for better money, from a better team. He was happy to rejoin the New York Mets, and the Orioles were happy to see him go.Oh, they'll never admit as much, sniffing, "We rehired the guy," as if the issue ends there. The truth is, the Orioles didn't want McCraw to remain their hitting coach. That's why they opened contract talks by insulting him with an offer of a $1,000 raise.

THE ROAR is so loud that it drowns out the sound of Old Faithful. The air is more polluted than in downtown Los Angeles. That is winter in Yellowstone National Park under the onslaught of snowmobiles. To protect the environment, wildlife and quality of visits, the National Park Service is moving to ban snowmobiles at Yellowstone and two dozen other parks. That effort must not be stayed. The phase-out of snowmobiles reflects long overdue enforcement of an executive order of the Nixon administration, 10 years of environmental study and three years of public hearings and comment.

The view of his former teammate, Mike Mussina, seemed peculiar yesterday to Orioles third baseman Cal Ripken. It came into focus as he raced past a Baltimore legend. Ripken suited up for his 2,897th game as an Oriole, passing Hall of Famer Brooks Robinson for first place on the club's all-time list. He celebrated by going 2-for-3 against Mussina, who was making his first appearance against the only team he played for until signing a free-agent contract with the New York Yankees during the winter.

John Cage, the 79-year old composer who died of a stroke in New York yesterday, wrote the most famous piece of music you never heard.It was called "4'33"," and the reason you never heard it was that the musicians (or musician) performing it weren't to make any sound at all. They would simply sit, poised as if to play, without making a sound. And they would do this for four minutes and 33 seconds (hence the title).Needless to say, writing a work that called for mere silence made Cage the butt of more than a few jokes.
