b intern Becky Quinn chimes in about what tickled her funny bone this week. Hint, it was not the Dundler Mifflin billboard. "Community" : Troy and Abed's housewarming party turned into a weird parallel universe with dice rolling, lost body parts and death?! Yes, in the end, Jeff loses an arm, Troy loses his larynx (but is equipped with a delightfully high-pitched stoma) and PIERCE IS DEAD. Abed comes equipped with goatees so that the study group can fully commit to evil.

The Baltimore Pride festival , which officially kicks off Friday and ends Sunday, includes an opening garden party, a performance by Deborah Cox, a block party, a high-heel race and the annual parade.

OUTSIDE A TENT ERECTED AT TIDE Point Waterfront Park, the 60-degree temperatures gave a hint of the spring weather that was on its way. Inside, the atmosphere was one of anticipation. Scheduled to open in August in Southwest Baltimore, the SEED School of Maryland is a new statewide college preparatory public boarding school for students from under-served urban areas. This evening's party, "An Urban Garden Party," was its opening celebration. "This is a fabulous get-together. A very young, hip crowd ... a lot of people are coming out for the first time, learning about this organization," observed committee member Mikey Monaghan as she surveyed the area.

The F/A-18 Hornets were the life of the garden party - in fact, one party after another enlivened an entire waterfront block. In the plush Ferry Farms neighborhood, just across the Severn River from the Naval Academy, hundreds of spectators were invited to watch the annual performance of the Blue Angels, the U.S. Navy's precision flying team. The aerial performance is a Commissioning Week ritual, followed by the flyover today at Navy-Marine Corps Memorial Stadium as a supersonic sendoff to the 980 graduating midshipmen.
