Poker players began gathering near the entrance of Maryland Live's poker room at 7 a.m., hours before the noon opening. Nearly 1,000 waited in line when cards finally began to fall on the casino's 52 poker tables. The opening of the poker room, a 14,800-square-foot, two-story addition to the Hanover facility, gives the state its first large-scale poker venue and establishes the Cordish Cos. property as the dominant full-service casino in the Mid-Atlantic. The room won't be a financial windfall compared with other tables or slots, but it has already tapped into a younger audience that longed for a place to play.

To the memory of one age group of TV viewers she was Maureen Robinson, the mother of the cosmos-meandering family of "Lost in Space" (1965-68)

Former Vice President Al Gore appeared to be mostly a silhouette and Tennessee twang against a backdrop of red charts and depictions of melting glaciers and stranded polar bears last night, but that was all his faithful needed to stay glued to their bleacher seats as he laid out the case for global warming at the University of Maryland, Baltimore County. Wearing a dark suit, dark tie and dark blue shirt, he strode out 45 minutes late to a standing ovation and whistles, greeting the crowd with outstretched arms.

Seinfeld!" The man standing outside Phillips Restaurant at Harborplace yesterday afternoon thought he had spotted TV star and famously G-rated comedian Jerry Seinfeld. He could not have been more wrong. In fact, it was Bob Saget, the all-American TV dad from Full House and perhaps the foulest comedian in the country. "Bob Saget is the dirtiest comic who's ever lived. Nobody touches him," says Penn Jillette, the verbal half of the comic duo Penn & Teller. Jillette put Saget in his new movie The Aristocrats, in which 100 comedians tell different variations on the same dirty joke.

Gov. Parris N. Glendening's gun safety legislation cleared its last big hurdle last night as a majority of the House Judiciary Committee put aside reservations about the bill's imperfections and approved it without changes. The measure goes to the full House of Delegates, where many opponents acknowledge that the governor has more than enough votes for final passage. "It's going to pass. It's on rails," said Del. Kevin Kelly, the only Democrat to join the committee's six Republicans in opposing the bill.

The Senate provided the country with a rare and modest glimpse of bipartisanship in its 68-32 passage of the comprehensive immigration reform bill laboriously accomplished by the Gang of Eight - four Democrats and four Republicans. But overcoming the rigid and obstructionist partisanship of the House Republicans will be another matter. House Speaker John Boehner, like a chief lemming leading his followers over a cliff, warned in advance of that Senate vote, in which 14 Republicans broke party ranks, that his flock would continue its obdurate ways on the politically explosive immigration issue.

Gov. Martin O'Malley's bill to repeal the death penalty is one step closer to passage after a House committee voted Friday to approve it. The bill - already passed by the Senate - goes now to the full House of Delegates. The House Judiciary Committee's 14-8 vote to approve the bill came after Republicans offered more than a half-dozen amendments seeking to allow the death penalty for some crimes, including mass murder. One after another, they were voted down by the same margin as on the bill itself.

The Anne Arundel County delegation to the General Assembly has voted to approve a House bill that would transform the county's school board from its current nine-member, all-appointed model to a body with five elected and four appointed members. Delegate Steve Schuh, a Republican who co-sponsored the bill with Republican delegate Tony McConkey, said the bill calls for five seats elected by district, three at-large seats and one student board member seat. Schuh said the measure would be phased in over time as current board members' tenures lapse.

There is nothing in sports more entertaining than watching Gary Williams work the sideline at a big game. This one fit the bill: Maryland against Duke on a cold March evening, first place in the ACC on the line, a full house at Comcast Center ready to explode in anticipation. The long-time Terps coach stalked out of the tunnel for the pre-game introductions like a middleweight fighter, shoulders hunched forward, arms dangling stiffly at his sides, familiar scowl firmly in place.

On what was supposed to be the first day of training camp with a full squad, the Ravens opened with a less-than-complete cast yesterday at McDaniel College. Safety Ed Reed (undisclosed injury), wide receiver Demetrius Williams (lower left leg), tight end Daniel Wilcox (toe surgery) and cornerback David Pittman (foot) were placed on the physically-unable-to-perform list. All four players were present during the morning practice session, with Reed and Pittman sprinting and backpedaling on their own. The team was also without cornerbacks Chris McAlister and Fabian Washington and fullback LeRon McClain, all of whom were on the nonfootball injury list.

WASHINGTON -- A House committee voted yesterday to condemn the mass killings of Armenians in Turkey in World War I as an act of genocide, rebuffing an intense campaign by the White House and warnings from Turkey's government that the vote would gravely strain relations with the United States. The vote by the House Foreign Relations Committee was nonbinding and so largely symbolic, but its consequences could reach far beyond bilateral relations and spill into the war in Iraq. Turkish officials and lawmakers warned that if the resolution is approved by the full House, they would reconsider supporting the American war effort, which includes permission to ship essential supplies through Turkey and northern Iraq.

Washington -- A House committee voted yesterday to endorse criminal prosecution of Joshua B. Bolten, President Bush's chief of staff, and former White House Counsel Harriet E. Miers for refusing to cooperate with a congressional investigation into the firing of U.S. attorneys last year. The 22-17 party-line vote of the Judiciary Committee calling for contempt-of-Congress proceedings against the two aides was referred to the full House for consideration. That vote is expected to occur after Labor Day when Congress returns from its August recess.
