I swear this episode was brought to us by Bad Idea Jeans. On to the show ... Back at Coyopa's camp after last week's Tribal Council, Josh explains to Baylor that he voted for her because he really wants to be in an alliance with her, but didn't want the rest of the guys to know. That makes no sense. Didn't you just, in fact, draw Baylor to their attention and prove that you have no problem with going against the rest of the group. Bad idea!

Dr. Roland Flint, the former Maryland poet laureate whose lyrical reminiscences of ordinary events - such as the taste of a salty oyster - earned him wide acclaim, died Tuesday of cancer at his Kensington home. He was 66. Dr. Flint was appointed poet laureate in 1995 and resigned in October because of health problems. "The real reason is, I just thought I had served long enough. It's an honorary post, and why not let someone else have a chance?" he told The Sun at the time. From 1968 until he retired in 1997, he taught creative writing and literature at Georgetown University in Washington.

LEXINGTON, Ky. - For two hours, Damon Flint was more animated than a cartoon.The gregarious Cincinnati guard held running commentary with the hometown radio crew, shook hands with TV's Billy Packer during a clock stoppage, and in his coup de grace, leaped gleefully into the arms of coach Bob Huggins.In between all that, he ushered Georgia Tech out of the NCAA tournament and did everything but hail a cab for Stephon Marbury, limiting the Yellow Jackets' superb freshman to a 4-for-13 shooting night in the Bearcats' 87-70 win on Friday.

INDIANAPOLIS -- The final episode of "The Flintstones" signed off with a magical ending. Carried by Flint, Mich., seniors Morris Peterson and Mateen Cleaves, Michigan State carved itself another piece of basketball history with an 89-76 triumph over Florida in the men's NCAA tournament final last night at the RCA Dome. The Spartans (32-7) achieved their first national championship since the Magic Johnson-led team won in 1979, but the former superstar remained a mere spectator since Michigan State required no special tricks last night.

We stood before the death chamber, in a stuffy little room where we had come from another stuffy little room in the middle of the night.With the sureness of a voting-booth screen, a beige curtain snapped back. The reporter next to me lifted his pen from his pad and crossed himself.In front of us was Flint Gregory Hunt, only it was not the Flint Gregory Hunt I had interviewed two weeks before. That man, scheduled to die for the murder of Baltimore police Officer Vincent Adolfo, was animated, outspoken, shifting in his chair as emotions of all kinds crossed his face.

When the late Roland Flint, former Maryland poet laureate, would read to students for the Howard County Poetry and Literature Society, the organization's president often would sit in the classroom and watch with awe the students' captivated faces. "He was just extraordinary," Ellen Conroy Kennedy said. "I never felt that we did our mission more than on those occasions." Flint, who died of cancer in January 2001 at age 66, meant a lot to Kennedy and HoCoPoLitSo, participating in more than 40 events in 24 years.

I admit I haven't comparison shopped this set of survival tools, but when World War Z breaks out you're going to need a compact axe, shovel, and switchblade handsaw. Check it out at dailysteals.com for only $39.99 plus shipping. This set loses points for not including a flint however. If Man vs Wild has taught me anything it is that you should always travel with a flint and lots of cordage.

Yesterday, Richard Flint's classroom was a circus. The Ringling Brothers and Barnum & Bailey Circus, to be exact. After four weeks of learning about the history behind the hijinks, teetering tightrope walkers and airborne acrobatics, the students in Flint's adult-education class - "The Circus: Rings Around the World" - peeked behind the curtains of the "Greatest Show on Earth." The group, which had been taking the course through the Johns Hopkins University Odyssey program, mingled with performers and trainers, and toured parts of the arena before yesterday's shows.

Diane Jacobs sews the pockets on suit coats - as many as 200 a day - that are sold in stores such as Brooks Brothers. For 34 years, it's been a good job, with few layoffs, decent benefits and even a little show biz. "Do you remember Lawrence Welk? We did suits for his show once," she says. "I'll never forget them because they were orange." But factory jobs like hers, once the backbone of the economy, are becoming as much a relic as the bandleader whose "ah-one an' ah-two" would launch a nattily attired orchestra into a fizzy tune.

Standing on the porch outside his Gwynn Oak residence, Marion Flint Sr. speaks softly and slowly about his only son, his namesake, who was killed in a roadside explosion while serving in Iraq. But inside, Flint is angry. That his 29-year-old son, Staff Sgt. Marion Flint Jr., on his second tour of duty for the Army, had to go to Iraq again for a war that he says seems so futile infuriates him. "It's not just my child; it's everybody's child," said Mr. Flint, 49, clasping hands with his wife, B.J. Flint, 50. "What's the purpose of this war?"
