There's been a plethora of rudeness on display in the news recently, and frankly, it makes me want to scream: "Why can't you people just sit down and shut up!?" But I won't do that, because that is precisely the sort of outburst that ought to be smothered in the interest of decorum. Look, I'm all for free speech and self-expression, but I think it's about time we brought that old skeleton out of the family closet: Uncle Repression. And let's not stop there - let's release all his banished relatives, including the Restraint Cousins and the Inhibition Sisters.

One of the duties of being a book blogger is bracing each day for the avalanche of pitches from publicists touting the next Da Vinci Code, Twilight or other runaway best-seller. Not that all publicists are a pain. On the contrary, I've found most of them to be very helpful in arranging author interviews and guest posts, or financing my beach house. But every so often, an annoying letter or e-mail pitch surfaces, such as the recent one that noted - almost apologetically - that the first-time novelist was "a well-known author of statistics textbooks."

Add Baltimore -- and, by extension, cities in general -- to the list of winners in last week's election. It's not just that a Democratic-controlled Congress is far less likely to go along with cuts to such programs as Community Development Block Grants that have proved vital to revitalizing the city. Nor is it just that when Mayor Martin O'Malley takes over as governor of Maryland in January, the city will have in the State House someone who understands the city's needs and problems. Among other things, O'Malley's victory over incumbent Republican Gov. Robert L. Ehrlich Jr. should help dispel the conventional wisdom that being mayor of a large city, with all its attendant problems, is such a liability that it makes political advancement all but impossible.

Two weeks ago, Kimberly Banholzer complained about selfish parkers who took up more than their fair share on often-crowded parking lots. This week, Bill Perigo says that if you want to park with impunity, do so in a shopping center's lot. Although it might infuriate your fellow shoppers, there's not a whole lot anybody can do about it. And the person parking poorly won't have to shop around for an excuse. Why? Because, as Mr. Perigo noted, Howard County's parking regulations apply to municipal parking areas rather than shopping center lots.

Late Orioles game: Last night's game between the Orioles and Chicago Cubs at Camden Yards, which was delayed for one hour, 49 minutes by rain in the third inning, ended too late to be included in this edition. A complete report can be found in later editions or on the Internet at http:// www.sunspot.net. Pat Hentgen will return to the Orioles' bullpen this weekend, with Rodrigo Lopez coming off the disabled list and going back into the rotation. Hentgen confirmed the switch yesterday after leaving manager Mike Hargrove's office.
