A witness told 911 operators the boat piloted by an admittedly drunk Del. Donald H. Dwyer was "flying [at] what seemed like full throttle" before colliding with another vessel, seriously injuring seven people, including four children. On 911 recordings released Tuesday and in interviews, neighbors who helped with the subsequent rescue described a bloody scene, screaming children, people tossed into the air and a boat ripped by the impact with Dwyer's motorboat, The Legislator. No one has been faulted in the Wednesday evening accident on the Magothy River that sent Dwyer, the pilot of the other boat and the children to the hospital.

Baltimore-based Premier Rides said it will design and build the world's tallest and fastest- looping roller coaster at a California theme park. Six Flags Magic Mountain picked the company to construct the coaster next year, Premier said. Called "Full Throttle," the ride will include a 160-foot-tall loop, a "special effects tunnel" and three separate launches from zero to 70 miles per hour. Premier's other projects include what will be the world's largest indoor coaster, to open next year in the Great Mall of China near Beijing.

So, is it time to start really disliking the New England Patriots? The beat-down of the Dolphins was certainly predictable. The Patriots have become the equivalent of a powerhouse college team that can run up the score at will against lesser opponents. They have a coach who is a convicted (by the NFL) angle-shooter. And a front office that is playing Big Brother by forcing an online ticket broker to give up the names and personal identification of 13,000 people who were involved in Patriots ticket transactions during the past several years.

HOLLYWOOD -- Fatima Bholat stepped into the summer sunshine, fresh from the darkened theater where she'd just seen The Hulk. It was opening day, and the 16-year-old high school junior had rushed out with her younger brother to see director Ang Lee's moody take on the big green superhero. Now she wanted to tell her friends all about it. She whipped out her silver-and-blue T-Mobile cell phone, pressed a button and did something that strikes terror into the hearts of studio executives: She tapped out a message telling her friends exactly what she thought of the movie -- and the verdict was brutal.

The driver's lips curled like a bass clef.The broad smile, oblivious to the world, left a lasting impression on Marc Guerrasio. Months have passed since that fateful evening and some details have faded from his mind, but the smile lingers on like some haunting old tune.Mr. Guerrasio never heard a sound -- surrounded as he was by six lanes of highway traffic -- but that beaming grin was a veritable grand finale of some spirited performance by Perlman, Midori, Heifetz, or, or, or . . .The violinist in the gray Honda Civic.

Six weeks into office, Baltimore's brash, high-energy mayor is running full throttle -- sometimes recklessly and at other times with a natural grace that has left people cheering. In sharp contrast to the aloof and cerebral Kurt L. Schmoke, Mayor Martin O'Malley has adopted a foot-on-the-gas approach that has quickly driven home the political version of the ad: This is not your father's Oldsmobile. The city's 47th mayor has helped save 350 jobs by keeping a key downtown employer from moving out. He pushed through a contentious downtown development deal, appointed former city government critics to head key agencies, and embarked upon a cleanup that had him perched on a garbage truck, firing a jackhammer and sandblasting graffiti.

Last year, Stewart suggested that NASCAR races were rigged, contending that the race organization latched on to flimsy excuses, such as minor debris on the track, to wave a caution flag. After some stern words from the great god NASCAR, Stewart said he didn't mean it. But like a little kid who's chronically in the cookie jar or kicking over other kids' sand castles, you knew he'd be at it again. In a comparison that appeared all over the media last year, Jeff Gordon called Stewart "the Rosie O'Donnell of NASCAR" because of his penchant for inciting controversy.

Everything fell conveniently into place for Navy on Saturday, just in time to gather momentum for its biggest challenge of the season. The Midshipmen had the incentive of a 32-point loss last season to the opponent they were playing and an ugly defeat, their worst of this season, the previous weekend at Rutgers. They had been pushed through a strenuous week of practice to be showcased before a homecoming crowd and several bowl scouts. And Tulane was visiting Navy-Marine Corps Memorial Stadium with a multitude of difficulties that stemmed from being uprooted by the wrath of Hurricane Katrina.

The man who rushed to a Denver airport late Friday night to catch a redeye flight to Baltimore, arriving in town at 6 a.m. yesterday on limited sleep, was slumped on a couch in the Orioles' clubhouse with the worst case of bed-head ever recorded. The look is typical for Eric Byrnes, their new left fielder and No. 2 hitter, a player in desperate need of a nap and a comb. Baggy, faded jeans that barely clung to his hips. A wrinkled brown and white T-shirt. Not an ounce of pretentiousness in his body.

Lots of things blow up real good in XXX: State of the Union. As to whether anything else happens, I'll let you know after my eardrums stop bleeding. Ahhh, my concussion seems to be clearing. I remember a buffed-up Ice Cube scowling a lot, women in cleavage-enhancing outfits providing eye candy, the U.S. Capitol with a gaping hole in its side, Samuel L. Jackson with a tire-grid prosthetic on the side of his face and a boat leaping onto a bridge. Like few movies in recent memory (at least few since the original XXX)

WHEN LAST SEEN, Nathan "Bill" Morris was typically heading over the next horizon. He was piloting his plane to Alaska or South America, or some place like that. Or maybe it was Paris, to re-create Lindbergh's flight. Or the Arctic Circle, just because it was there. Who can remember? It was three years ago - when Morris was 90. At his age, the next horizon was supposed to be one of the last. Morris has flown his little airplanes all around the planet, but at 90, he was surely ready to sit back in some rocking chair at his home on Kent Island and shift into life's automatic pilot.
