Cracker Jack, popcorn, and candy for $32! And $16 muffins! And there are hungry people in this country, or so I thought. But these pigs in the U.S. Department of Justice aren't going hungry. Typical of everyday Democrat-run government. Nothing but the best whether it's junkets to Spain or lunches. When are the voters going to snap out of their acceptance of this free-loading Obama administration? F. Cordell, Rock Hall

Say your bus is laid over for a while at the Baltimore Travel Plaza. This is your first time in Baltimore, and so, you think, "I sure should get a crab cake." Say you walk away from the fast-food joints at the terminal and, guided by instinct, across the parking lot toward the Baltimore Truck Wash, and there it is: the Cornerstone Grille, one of the luckiest breaks you're likely to have on the long, lonely highway. The Cornerstone Grille might not have the oddest location of any place I've reviewed, but it's close, and it definitely ranks No. 1 as the most unusual location to offer outdoor seating - me, I could sit there all day, watching cars and trucks come and go on and off the ramps of Interstate 95. There are a few other things that distinguish the Cornerstone Grille from the majority of the restaurants that come up for review.

I had one of those soul-satisfying, I-love-Baltimore nights a few Saturdays back at Cafe Gia Ristorante, a colorful, cheerful and satisfying Italian restaurant on the corner of High Street and Eastern Avenue. We showed up for early dinner reservations and were whisked right upstairs to the narrow second-floor balcony, which was pretty darn magical on this particular night. The view from there isn't spectacular, but it's captivating, a mix of old and new. Across the street, you can see diners on the balcony at Dalesio's, and further back, the high- and medium-rise luxury apartment buildings of the Harbor East development.

The Orioles' top two prospects turned in solid performances Sunday in the MLB Futures Game at Kauffman Stadium in Kansas City. Dylan Bundy, the Orioles' first-round draft pick in 2011, picked up the win for the U.S. in its 17-5 win over the World. The right-handed starter gave up three hits but pitched a scoreless fourth for the victory. Manny Machado, the O's first-round draft choice in 2010, went 1-for-3 with a double that scored two U.S. runners in a nine-run sixth inning.

Port officials have asked the state Public Utilities Commission to set a flat rate for taxi services to and from the cruise ship terminal and three popular city locations. James White, executive director of the Maryland Port Administration, said passengers — many from out of state — have complained "that they are being overcharged and that taxi drivers are not turning their meters on. " He asked the commission to set a fare for trips to Fort McHenry, Pennsylvania Station and the Inner Harbor in the same way it established a $30 flat rate for fares to Baltimore-Washington International Thurgood Marshall Airport.

A Maryland Transit Administration employee used keys to improperly open bus fare boxes and rail ticket machines, and $475,000 is missing, according to a legislative audit released yesterday. The audit, which criticized the MTA for failing to track employee access to such keys, said the agency referred the matter to criminal investigators at the attorney general's office in January. The report said that as of last summer, the matter was under investigation by state and federal officials.

The token, good for one fare on a Baltimore bus or streetcar since 1919, is on its way out. The victim of cost-cutting at the Maryland Transit Administration and the relentless march of progress in fare collection systems, the token will go off the market at the end of next month. The dime-sized slugs will be locked in a vault - perhaps melted down - and eventually replaced by electronic fare cards. Hardly anyone may notice their absence because hardly anyone uses tokens anymore. About 2 percent of trips on MTA buses, light rail and subway trains are paid for with tokens, a figure that has been in steady decline.

Question: : In February, I booked a flight from Los Angeles International Airport to Istanbul, Turkey, with a return from Athens, Greece. The flight includes legs on American and its flight partner, Iberia Airlines. The cost was $1,122. Friends who booked the same trip later paid $822. I called American and asked for a refund but was told that doing so would incur a $250 change fee, thereby wiping out the savings. But I am not changing anything. The itinerary remains the same in every way. Why can't I take advantage of the lower fare instead of being penalized for booking early?

Week 2 proved much better than did Week 1 for The Baltimore Sun's highest-ranked high school football teams. Last week, four of the top five lost; this week, four of the top five won. No. 1 McDonogh led the way with the Baltimore area's first major win over an out-of-state power this season. The Eagles traveled to Cincinnati, Ohio, and knocked off Elder, 24-14, which was ranked No. 25 in MaxPreps' Xcellent 25 national rankings last week. The only loss among the top five teams was No. 4 Calvert Hall's 23-0 setback at Good Counsel, preventing the Cardinals from building on last week's win over No. 6 Franklin.

The Internet is perhaps the only place where first-class fliers are treated like second-class citizens. A report issued last month by Consumer WebWatch, a division of Consumers Union, said that people who spent the most money on airline fares must at times overcome serious technology failures in their quest to book premium tickets. According to Forrester Research, an Internet consulting firm, nearly 19 percent of Americans who booked tickets online last year bought domestic business or first-class tickets.

In a move to expand its share of business travelers, Southwest Airlines yesterday said it would begin selling a premium fare that guarantees buyers will be among the first to board the plane. The early boarding privilege will also be extended to passengers who fly at least 32 flights a year on the airline. A round trip counts as two flights. "We're simply offering business travelers more reasons to choose Southwest," Chief Executive Officer Gary Kelly said. "It will knock down some hurdles and hopefully gain us a lot more passengers."
