As mayor of Bridgeport, Conn., I considered it an honor and a privilege to have a man like Bishop William Lori in our city for the last 11 years. I considered Bishop Lori to be a partner in helping make Bridgeport a better city, a leader of our community and, most importantly, a friend who always had time to speak with me. He leaves behind a very proud legacy in Bridgeport. While I will certainly miss having him in Bridgeport working passionately on the education of our young people and the sheltering of our poor, I am very pleased to see him elevated to archbishop.

Lee Gardner, editor of Baltimore's City Paper, is leaving the alt-weekly to become a senior editor of the Washington-based Chronicle of Higher Education. Gardner, 47, said 17 years at the City Paper — including 10 as the editor — was simply enough time to be in one place. "When I got here, I figured I would stay about two years," he said. "Well, here I am. " Gardner, who studied English at the University of Tennessee and Towson University, began his tenure at City Paper as its music editor.

There comes a time for every trader to tally the bets that paid off, revalue the stinkers and recalibrate assumptions according to changing facts. Mutual funds do this every day. Banking companies, which still hold subprime mortgage bonds that are vastly overvalued on their books, don't do it often enough. Business columnists, if they are honest and faithful, mark their beliefs against reality every few months, if only to themselves. When they stop writing a semiweekly column after more than a decade, however, perhaps the reckoning should be explicit and public.

In the Spring of 2000, I was winding down my senior year at the University of Montana. And though I couldn't put the feeling into words, each day, I wandered around my hometown of Missoula feeling directionless. I had no plans after graduation. I had been rejected by about 50 newspapers I had applied to, seeking a post-graduate summer internship. I did my laundry in my parents' basement. The house I shared with three equally directionless roommates was six blocks from my childhood bedroom.

Friends, family, fans and colleagues said a public farewell to WBAL radio show host Ron Smith Tuesday at Goucher College. And it was as powerful and moving in some respects as the way Smith, who died in December at age 70, lived his final weeks and months after being diagnosed with pancreatic cancer in October. The manner in which Smith shared his final days with his radio audience until he could no longer go on air, and then the way he said farewell to them in a live broadcast, was remarkable --  both public and yet incredibly intimate.

OK, it's a Postseason Prediction Friday. We have a little Purple Geazus behind the bar. I'll set you up with a to-go flask later. The Ravens and I finished the regular season on a winning note - they beat the Bengals 24-16 and I almost nailed it, with a 24-14 call. But that was so two weeks ago. The slate is clean. We are finally talking playoffs (Playoffs??) The Ravens have to beat the Houston Texans for a second time this season at M&T Bank. I believe they will.

How shocking that a 20-year-old college senior who worked in Rep. Andy Harris' congressional office drank a glass of wine at her farewell party last summer! ("Md. lawmaker under fire for underage drinking by intern," Jan. 4.) That should have been Page One news. Why doesn't The Sun put political blogger Joe Steffen, who broke this non-story, on its editorial board? He would fit right in. Marie Mullen

It was only fitting that our colleague, Ken Murray, retired this week without any fanfare. That was typical Kenny. He didn't want any speeches, farewell ceremonies, cakes or gifts. We all knew that when Kenny retired, it would be like Jonathan Ogden, except instead of turning in his jersey, Kenny would turn in his computer and shut off the lights without a word being said. He basically closed out the final chapter of his long and distinguished career as one of the best pro football writers in America recently with a dinner that included the same bunch of guys he had been covering the Ravens with since 2000.

Here we are at the half-way point in the competition. The reward for remaining in contention is participation in DWTS's special Halloween show next week. One thing's for sure. Frustrations are surfacing and they're being voiced. It makes for an awkward viewing experience, but maybe it's just a tactic to keep interest and avoid a mid-season slump. Last night it was pro Maksim Chmerkovskiy who vented his frustrations. Tonight there was a little bit of an apology. And while Maks didn't apologize for his opinions expressed to judge Len Goodman, he did admit that DWTS is not, as he called it last night, his show . Tonight we heard the gripes of contestant Chaz Bono, who said he was fed up with judge Bruno Tonioli referring to him as things like a cute penguin or an Ewok.
