South Baltimore's Prohibition-era cocktail lounge Idle Hour has a number of distinctions to its credit: 2009's Midnight Sun Best of the Best of the Best award for Best Pickle Back Shot for one. In addition, it's one of the region's top sellers of the French liqueur Chartreuse. Idle Hour sells so much Chartreuse per annum that the producers of the rather potent herbal beverage flew the owners to France and gave them a full-blown tour of the production facility, monk parties included (yes, it's named after a monastery)

JOHANNESBURG — Before the World Cup started, you could have gotten good odds that the French would go home as champions. On Sunday one of Europe's top bookmakers starting taking bets the French would go home before their final match. The bizarre turn of events, which has been brewing for years, finally bubbled over Sunday at the team's camp just east of Cape Town with a series of events that started with a conversation between captain Patrice Evra and coach Raymond Domenech and ended with the humiliated Domenech reading a statement to the media condemning the French federation's decision to kick forward Nicolas Anelka off the team a day earlier.

Gilman quarterback Kai Locksley considered the beginning of the third quarter the pivotal time for his Greyhounds Friday afternoon, even though they had a lead on St. Frances at the break. The No. 3 Greyhounds started the game with 21 straight points, only to watch No. 12 St. Frances cut the lead to five on a couple of big plays in the final minutes of the first half. Locksley, a 6-foot-5, 205-pound quarterback committed to Florida State, guided Gilman on a long scoring drive to open the third quarter and that sparked a 42-16 victory over the visiting Panthers in the Maryland Interscholastic Athletic Association A Conference opener for both teams.

Francehas elected only the second Socialist president in its history -- the first being Francois Mitterrand, who spent 14 years in the driver's seat back when French presidential terms lasted seven years rather than five, and who made a hard-right turn away from economic socialism and toward spending cuts after his first two years in office. The best France can hope for now is that the newly elected Francois Hollande takes a similar plunge into a pothole of pragmatism and douses any budding socialist ideas.

Paris. -- Margaret Thatcher said in the early 1970s that 10 years are about as long as any democratic public will put up with a given leader. She failed to profit from her own observation and leave the prime ministership when she was at the peak of her accomplishment and reputation.Instead she stayed on, and found herself humiliatingly ejected from 10 Downing Street last year by the vote of her own party's parliamentary members.Francois Mitterrand was elected president of the French hTC Republic 10 years ago May 10. Is it the prudent time for him to go?

A FRENCH POLITICAL commentator recently suggested that 10 years is, so to speak, the ''consume-by'' date on politicians. Ten years, more or less, and British Prime Minister Margaret Thatcher was overturned. The students were in the streets against Gen. Charles De Gaulle a decade after he returned to power in 1958, and he was gone a year later.The United States has written it into the Constitution. Just eight years and a president is out.The pertinence of the French writer's observation is that within a few months Francois Mitterrand will have been president of France for 10 years.

Former Gov. Robert L. Ehrlich Jr.'s column on French economic policy is unfairly critical of a great nation that perhaps has contributed more to the world's culture - in literature, music, philosophy and art - than any other country on earth ("France's discomfort with capitalism," Dec. 2). Lets look at the facts: The French live longer than we do in the U.S.; they're also healthier, better educated and happier than us. At the same time they have much lower crime rates than we do, and they're tied with us for having the highest worker productivity in the world.

St. Frances defensive end Rahshaun Smith has been cleared by Maryland Interscholastic Athletic Association officials to play football this fall after transferring during the last school year from Calvert Hall. Smith, rated the No. 15 prospect in the Class of 2016 last week by the recruiting website rivals.com, has moved his primary residence by more than 30 miles which allows him to play without sitting out for a year, said Lee Dove, executive director of the MIAA. League rules require a varsity athlete who played the same sport at another MIAA school to sit out a year with two exceptions - that he moves more than 30 miles or his former school discontinues the sport.

Yesterday in one sentence : The gaps in the World Cup schedule, as a very smart person pointed out to me, need to be filled with something, even if it's MLS games. It was too weird without soccer this week, and now there are more days without it than with it until the end of the World Cup. What's on tap : France vs. Germany, noon, ESPN2; Brazil vs. Colombia, 4 p.m., ESPN. What you'll see : Sure, the United States has been eliminated for days, but seeing these matchups should only make everyone, even on this most patriotic day of days, understand why the United States is out and these teams are in. France and Germany have been the class of the European teams so far, while Brazil and Colombia (with respect to Argentina, which hasn't looked great)
