It began to rain yesterday evening as I sat on the porch with a pipe and a Manhattan, calm in the knowledge that the preparations, all that could be done, were complete. The grill and the porch furniture were in the garage. Five loads of laundry were complete. Coffee beans, enough for a few days' pots, had been ground and stored. Kathleen had made a large quantity of beef barley soup, and there was, of course, bourbon on hand. This morning, with the full force of Hurricane Sandy yet to come, I've supplied you with the word of the week, sockdolager , and the joke of the week, "The Sailor and the Pirate.

World events over the last month or so have proven that we do have a very creditable terrorist threat, not only to the Middle East, but to Europe and the U.S. As this is the start of the NFL season and all the fantasy leagues are in full force, I would like to recommend a World Leader Fantasy League. As we already have a World Leader team in place, I propose trading our current world leader, President Barack Obama, for Great Britain's Prime Minister David Cameron. Last week demonstrated that Mr. Obama is not up to the task.

As many prepare for Fourth of July cookouts or head to the Shore, law enforcement agencies across the state are beefing up patrols - to monitor large crowds at fireworks celebrations and ramp up DUI enforcement. Officers plan to be out in force on Friday at the Inner Harbor, where crowds congregate for fireworks, and throughout the region in what police say is one of their busiest days of the year. "We're working really hard to ensure that this is the best Fourth of July celebration that we've had in the history of Baltimore," said Col. Darryl DeSousa, the city's chief of patrol.

Los Angeles -- Some called it the May Massacre when ABC slashed "China Beach," "thirtysomething," "Twin Peaks" and "Equal Justice" -- all dramas that, though not highly rated, had a certain cachet of quality about them.Since May 1991, ABC Entertainment president Robert Iger continually has been asked to justify his decision to cancel those dramas.In July, during a gathering of national television writers, the question was again posed to Mr. Iger.Mr. Iger grimaced, then said, "I wanted to enjoy this session a little bit more than I did last July."

Customers, greeted by a smiling Wal-Mart employee, kept the automatic entrance doors in constant motion.

WASHINGTON -- If the presidential race were a football game, Henry G. Cisneros, the secretary of housing and urban development, might be accused of trying to run up the score.Although President Clinton appears headed for an easy victory, Cisneros has spent much of the past two months aggressively publicizing the administration's accomplishments and doling out money for urban projects as if his boss were trailing in the polls."In the last month or so, they've been doing a fantastic job in the old-style pork-barrel politics," said Sen. Christopher S. Bond, a Missouri Republican who chairs a subcommittee that oversees the Department of Housing and Urban Development (HUD)

JERUSALEM - Even for the security-conscious city of Jerusalem, the police deployments yesterday were remarkable. There were police dressed in blue, police dressed in the khaki-green of soldiers, police on horses and in cars - all on Jaffa Road, where a bomb had ripped apart a line of shops, killed the Palestinian bomber as well as an elderly Israeli and injured more than 100 other people Sunday. Sharpshooters stood on the rooftops. Police in jeeps drove back and forth. Authorities cast a suspicious gaze on every pedestrian and pressed young Palestinian men against walls to be patted down.

JIDDA, Saudi Arabia - The royal family of this embattled kingdom announced a one-month amnesty yesterday for Islamic insurgents, framing its offer in the language of religious redemption and hinting at harsh punishment for those who refuse. In a speech that reflected the delicate politics of confronting an Islamic uprising in a land that has in the past tried to co-opt or reform militants, Crown Prince Abdullah promised fair treatment under Islamic law for those who turn themselves in. Surrendering insurgents would be spared the death penalty, said the crown prince, the kingdom's de facto ruler, who spoke on behalf of ailing King Fahd.

WASHINGTON - President Bush used Veterans Day ceremonies yesterday to send fresh warnings to Iraq, vowing to use "the full force and might of the United States military" against that country unless Saddam Hussein agrees to disarm. Bush spoke as Hussein faced a Friday deadline for accepting the conditions of a United Nations resolution mandating the return of weapons inspectors. Approved by the Security Council last week, the resolution states that Iraq must destroy its weapons of mass destruction or face "serious consequences."

Patti Volkman and Gerry Sipes hunkered down on a little slice of sidewalk, armed with everything they'd need to brave yesterday's parade. Blankets? Check. Cooler? Check. Green hair spray? Check. Emphasis on the green. After all, it was St. Patrick's Day -- or at least parade day, the day after -- and what is a festival without green-haired kids? "How often do you get to celebrate your Irish heritage? You can't do it every day. People would think you were nuts if you walked around with green hair," said Sipes of Mayfield, who, with her three youngsters and the Volkmans, staked out a spot at Charles and West Hamilton streets.

Late last week, as EF Language began to pull away from the leaders in the Whitbread Round the World Race for the Volvo Trophy, skipper Paul Cayard said in an electronic mail report to race headquarters in England: "This is the real Whitbread now. No more Princess cruises . . . We are flying."Cayard of San Francisco and EF Language (Sweden) won the first leg of the race from Southampton to Cape Town, South Africa, yesterday, and the 31-day, 7,350-nautical mile journey was an eye-opener."I have been thinking about how to describe this to my friends and family," Cayard reported, while EF Language surfed through 15-foot seas in 30 knots of wind on the sprint from the island of Trindade across the South Atlantic Ocean to Cape Town.

TULKARM, West Bank - What happened here this weekend carried the sound of war, but not its full fury. At 8 p.m. Saturday, a knot of men took shelter behind a concrete wall overlooking a cemetery and, beyond it, an Israeli military camp close to the border with the Jewish state. They could hear the crackle of automatic weapons from Palestinians firing toward the Israeli post and knew what would come next. Fifteen minutes later, as if on cue, Israeli machine guns opened up with a thunderous barrage, sending red-flaring bullets over Palestinian rooftops.

PHILADELPHIA - It must be heady stuff to be compared to the greatest hitter of all time, but Colorado Rockies first baseman Todd Helton isn't ready to embrace the concept. It's not that he fails to see the connection. He just doesn't think his name and Ted Williams belong in the same sentence. Such is life when you're in just your third full major-league season and your batting average is threatening to start with a four. Helton, the one-time University of Tennessee starting quarterback who took a look at teammate Peyton Manning and decided to concentrate on baseball, finished last night's game against the Philadelphia Phillies batting .395 and looking like a very legitimate candidate to be baseball's first .400 hitter since the Splendid Splinter hit .406 in 1941.
