During the long days of searching since Philip Merrill's sailboat turned up in the Chesapeake Bay on Saturday without him, family and friends have had difficulty accepting his likely demise. The wind and rough seas seemed no match for the brilliant and blustery Annapolis publisher. Variously described in tributes as a force of nature and larger than life, Mr. Merrill, 72, cut a broad and bold swath through this region and capitals around the world. Through shrewd business acumen, he made himself a millionaire many times over at the same time he was honing his skills as a professional diplomat.

Every week, I hope to bring you a quick Q&A with someone who covers the Ravens' opponent that week. In case you haven't heard, the Ravens play the Pittsburgh Steelers at Heinz Field on Sunday. I chatted with longtime Pittsburgh Post-Gazette reporter Ed Bouchette this week while I covered the Steelers in Pittsburgh. MV: What are your expectations for quarterback Byron Leftwich, who will fill in for Ben Roethlisberger? EB: He's played well in the preseason. And when he was getting ready to start in 2010 when Ben was suspended, he was having a real good preseason, I thought, then he got hurt and didn't play.

Hugh B. Patterson Jr., 91, publisher of The Arkansas Gazette in 1957 when it was thrust into national prominence for its stand against segregated schools during a federal-state confrontation, died Monday in Little Rock, Ark. By supporting desegregation, The Gazette suffered severe losses in advertising and circulation. It also won two Pulitzer Prizes for its coverage. The Little Rock confrontation was instigated by Gov. Orval E. Faubus, who called out the Arkansas National Guard to block nine black students from enrolling at Central High School.

LAWYER, WRITER, bartender, Zen Buddhist, environmentalist and fierce defender of bay watermen - Mary Madison's one of the more interesting people to emerge on the Chesapeake scene. She's editor of the Waterman's Gazette, the monthly newspaper published in Annapolis by the Maryland Watermen's Association, which represents the state's commercial crabbers, fishermen and oystermen. I've read the Gazette for more than 20 years, but often I would spend about a minute doing it. Since Madison took over a few years ago, that's changed.

At first glance, it might seem someone's been collecting long-fallen autumn leaves, judging by the musty odor and the browned and brittle sheets crumbling on the shelves.But this is the dimly lit Stack 7 of the Central Enoch Pratt Free Library on Cathedral Street, and the only thing going back to nature is Maryland's foremost collection of newspapers, two centuries and more of history that biodegrades before your eyes."Don't you love these moldering stacks? Depressing!" pronounces Peter Curtis, a librarian at the University of Maryland College Park.

Tabloid on trialA Florida tabloid went on trial yesterday on two misdemeanor counts of publishing the name of the woman who says William Kennedy Smith raped her on March 30 at the Kennedy estate in Palm Beach.The case against the Globe of Boca Raton represents the first criminal prosecution under the 1911 Florida law that prohibits publishing a rape victim's name.Globe attorneys say the statute is unconstitutional because the state's interest in protecting rape victims' names is not strong enough to override the First Amendment right to freedom of the press.
