It seems as though polite debate over how to best control growth in Hampstead may no longer be possible. At the most recent meeting of the town's Planning and Zoning Commission, an obviously frustrated member of the commission lost control and inappropriately berated a town resident for criticizing the public body. The incident was quite ugly and some members of the audience feared that a fistfight would break out.At the root of the controversy is how to ensure that Hampstead's explosive growth doesn't destroy the town's quality of life.

So that other debate is on TV tomorrow night. You know, the one between those two guys running for president? What are their names again? The black guy and the old guy? Oh, yeah, Barack Obama and John McCain. Funny, you don't seem that excited. In fact, did I hear ... snoring? Oh, sure, it's no Joe Biden vs. Sarah Palin, which was the Thrilla in Manilla of recent political debates. Watching that one and then sitting through Obama-McCain II could be like seeing The Godfather followed by an infomercial on vacuum cleaners.

WASHINGTON -- In a daring bid to overcome public suspicion of the North American Free Trade Agreement, the White House agreed yesterday to debate vociferous NAFTA critic Ross Perot before the Nov. 17 House vote on the controversial trade agreement.After months of attacks by Mr. Perot -- who has been traveling the country denouncing the accord and challenging the administration to meet him face to face -- Vice President Al Gore called talk show host Larry King yesterday morning and expressed interest in debating the feisty Texas billionaire on Mr. King's CNN TV show, a spokesman for Mr. Gore said.

It wasn't fair, really. Left-hander Doug Johns came off the disabled list and made the most of a very difficult situation, but was the hidden victim of the ugly bean brawl that marred Tuesday night's game. His solid performance in place of injured Mike Mussina got lost in the scuffle."I think that was my deepest disappointment," said pitching coach Mike Flanagan. "We prepared as best we could. He took his game out there and he made big pitches when he had to. If we win that game for him, it's a big mood setter.

Here's a greatly abridged list of facts that set Sean Tuohy Jr. apart from your average reserve on a mid-major college basketball team: Start with the Loyola guard's 23,379 Twitter followers. For a little perspective, the team's star, Dylon Cormier, has 643. Then there are the road crowds, which alternate between calling for Tuohy's entry to the game and booing him like he's J.J. Redick. All of this for a redshirt freshman who's played six minutes in his college career. Oh and three years ago, Tuohy watched Sandra Bullock - he calls her Sandy - win an Academy Award for portraying his mother, Leigh Anne.
