Dr. Garfield D. Kington, a physician who was a familiar and comforting presence to his West Baltimore patients for decades, died Aug. 3 of multiple myeloma at his Northwest Baltimore home. He was 91. "We were colleagues on the medical staff at Provident Hospital and became friends. I met Dr. Kington and observed him in his office, where he worked late through the day seeing patients in a tough neighborhood and provided an excellent standard of care," said Dr. Keiffer Mitchell, an internist who has practiced in Baltimore for 43 years.

The world according to polls, or some part of it anyway, is telling us that former Godfather's Pizza CEO Herman Cain is now the frontrunner for the 2012 Republican presidential nomination. The latest NBC News/Wall Street public opinion survey has him the choice of 27 percent of GOP primary voters asked, to 23 for Mitt Romney of Massachusetts and only 16 for Rick Perry of Texas. Is there anybody in the general audience willing to bet his first-born, or even second or third, that Mr. Cain will be his party's nominee next year, let alone be sitting in the Oval Office come January 2013?

Kids have been watching Saturday morning cartoons on TV since the dawn of the television age. No more -- at least not on the CBS and NBC local network affiliates, which are dropping Saturday cartoons for expanded news coverage.This is part of a larger trend toward local weekend newscasts. Cable and independent operators have been chipping away at network audiences to the point where only top-rated shows make money for affiliates. Some shows being dropped, such as "Garfield," "Ninja Turtles" and "Muppet Babies," are big hits in their category -- but they still can't cut it in today's competitive market.

Baltimoreans were astonished to find resting on their porches and steps early on the morning of July 3, 1881, an "Extra" edition of The Baltimore Sun. This was a first time in The Sun's 44-year history that the paper had been printed on a Sunday, and it was for urgent reasons. (It would not regularly start publishing a Sunday edition for another 20 years, on Oct. 6, 1901.) The gravity of the extra was instantly obvious. It told of the attempted assassination of President James A. Garfield in a Washington railroad station, as he was about to board a train with his two sons for a visit to his wife, Lucretia, who was recuperating from a case of malaria on the Jersey Shore at Elberon.

So I get the new stickers for my car registration in the mail. They arrive at the end of the month, just as I'm preparing to leave for vacation. In the haste of the moment, I forget to put the stickers on my car. I leave them stuck to the refrigerator with a Garfield magnet. I take off for vacation, leaving my car behind. I return 10 days later. The day I am due back at work, I hop into the car and drive off. Two miles into my morning commute, a cop pulls me over. He says I'm driving with expired tags.

The temperature was already climbing into the high 60s early on the morning of July 2, 1881, a Saturday, bringing with it all the promise of another muggy and humid summer's day in Washington. President James A. Garfield entered a White House bedroom to wake his two sons, Harry and Jim. They were about to embark with their father on a railroad journey to the Jersey Shore to meet their mother, Lucretia, who had been convalescing there after suffering an attack of malaria. Garfield attempted to rouse his sleeping sons with a rendition of "I Mixed Those Babies Up," his favorite song from the new Gilbert and Sullivan opera, "H.M.S.

The turbo-charged guy with a head full of swirling salt-and-pepper hair sitting at the lower end of Grand Cru busily sketching most Saturday afternoons, dressed in faded blue jeans, bumpy tweed sport coat, Irish country farmers vest, shirt and tie, is the loquacious Kevin O'Malley. The Belvedere Square bar is O'Malley's home away from home, living room or branch office-studio. He comes here to think, draw, laugh, pick up a few ideas while quaffing a few cold ones with his usual cadre of boon companions.

As a young man released from prison after a lengthy term for an atrocity committed when he was a child, Andrew Garfield pulls off a death-defying act of imagination. With a new name, Jack Burridge, and a made-up past, the protagonist gets a job and falls in love. His case worker (Peter Mullan) views Jack as his "greatest accomplishment." Jack is not so sure. The genius of Garfield's performance is that he fills him with equal amounts of terror and wonder. Garfield shows you waves of tenderness and joy washing over Jack's face when he's in bed with his patient lover (Katie Lyons)

There are worse things than watching a second Garfield movie. I just can't think of them now. Garfield: A Tail of Two Kitties is tedious almost beyond endurance, an exercise in diminishing returns that takes the minor pleasures of the first film (so minor that none of them comes to mind, either) and makes believe the public is desperately clamoring for more. They aren't, and this film explains why. Garfield: A Tail of Two Kitties (20th Century Fox) Starring Breckin Meyer, Jennifer Love Hewitt, voice of Bill Murray.

Apart from one urban cliffhanger set in a parking garage - it should have an afterlife as an action sequence long after the rest of this sorry celluloid has turned to soup - the grandiose, grimly silly revenge thriller Death Sentence will mostly benefit free-form players of "Six Degrees of Kevin Bacon." Bacon can now readily be linked to nonpareil macho movie star Charles Bronson, because Death Sentence is based on novelist Brian Garfield's 1975 sequel to Death Wish, which Bronson and director Michael Winner turned into a hit vigilante film in 1974.
