When the first video of Ray Rice dragging his then-fiancee off a casino elevator like a slab of meat appeared, I thought, "God bless TMZ. " With TMZ's release of video today showing him punching Janay Palmer twice and knocking her to the floor, I say, God bless TMZ again and again. You can read what I wrote in February here under the headline: "Ray Rice and how TMZ counters the great American hype machine. " TMZ did the job the mainstream sports media failed to do in showing us the ugliness of this incident.

The most telling works come at the end of "God Bless th Child," the Billie Holiday exhibit at the Eubie Blake National Museum and Cultural Center. That's because curator Lotus Do Brooks has placed there the works created in response to "Strange Fruit," Holiday's song about lynching.Oletha De Vane's "The Lady and Her Song" represents the singer standing in front of the words of the song, "Southern trees bear a strange fruit. Blood on the leaves and blood at the root . . .," partly printed across a Ku Klux Klan-style hood.

With international jewelry and trinkets in one room, a cabaret singer in another, Chinese calligraphy and a spread of ethnic food at the center of it all, Foreign-born Information and Referral Network's annual fund-raiser last night at the Columbia Hilton Hotel was as diverse as the thousands of people it helps to settle in Howard County. The network, which helps new immigrants assimilate to life in the United States, celebrated 20 years in Howard County with speakers who have benefited from its services, entertainment, and food and beverages donated by more than 20 restaurants and stores.

By now you've probably heard there was a pretty nasty debate Thursday night between Kathleen Kennedy Townsend and Robert L. Ehrlich Jr. Maybe you were even one of the 12 people who saw it on television. We could argue about whether the debate illuminated the policy differences between the two candidates. Where they certainly excelled, though, was in their usage of niceties to shed blood. It's easy to bludgeon one another with insults and criticism. What was refreshing about Townsend and Ehrlich was how they couched disdain in pleasantries.

This is an excerpt of remarks sculptor Lawrence Ludtke, of Houston, made Sunday at the dedication of a monument in Gettysburg, Pa., to honor Marylanders who fought on both sides of the pivotal Civil War battle. To the right is a rendering of Mr. Ludtke's work.IT IS AN EXTREME honor and a humbling experience to stand here at Gettysburg and realize that this monument honoring all Marylanders that fought here, those three terrible days in July of 1863, will stand on this site as long as there is a United States of America.

Here's how I see it: An excess of alcohol, like an excess of money, does not change a personality so much as magnify it. Booze and wealth make you more of whatever it is you already are, bring to the fore demons ordinarily kept under lock and key by civility, political correctness and plain old common sense. Which brings us to Mel Gibson and his dual apologies for the anti-Semitic rant he launched late last month as he was arrested for drunken driving. As public expressions of remorse go, Mr. Gibson's get high marks for its earnestness.

From sunrise to sunset, Carroll County residents will have opportunities today to join the country in the National Day of Prayer, an annual event whose theme for its 51st year is "America United Under God." Marcia Reinhart, a Westminster resident who is coordinating the state's events, expects large crowds and many petitions for the nation's safety because of the terrorist attacks of Sept. 11. "The only way God is going to heal our land is if we humble ourselves and pray," she said. "We need to do more than say `God bless me' at mealtime."

For millions of devoted dog and cat lovers, the animals in their care are cherished as members of the family. But that's not how the law in Maryland treats pets when their owners die. Unlike human relatives, pets have no legal claim to a share of the estate, and owners can't even ensure they'll be treated humanely by their designated guardians. So leave it to two dog- and cat-loving lawmakers, Republican Del. A. Wade Kach and Democratic Del. John A. Olszewski Jr., both of Baltimore County, to come up with a bill that would allow pet owners to establish trust funds for the furry and feathered friends who survive them.

Election fulfills a lifelong dream I am an 83-year-old black American senior citizen who has realized a dream fulfilled in my lifetime - witnessing a man of color become president of the United States. I pray and hope that he, and the vice president-elect, will bring this nation together so that each of us will share the responsibilities of living and working together, peacefully, without mistrust, doubt or fear. I expect all peoples to rally around this young man, Barack Obama, and his chosen Cabinet, and give them the 100 percent support they will need to carry out the programs Mr. Obama has so elegantly outlined.

There's a basket in my favorite Annapolis Starbucks filled with an assortment of coffee beans from Colombia, Mexico and Guatemala, along with pound bags of bold flavors such as Caffe Verona and Sumatra. And they all have messages written on them in black marker. "God bless you." "Merry Christmas." And "Go Navy beat Army." The coffee beans have been purchased by Starbucks customers and donated, to be sent to American troops overseas. Just about every bag of beans carries a message of love and thanks.

MESA, Ariz. -- Chicago Cubs manager Dusty Baker revealed yesterday that he finally got a chance to speak to Sammy Sosa, but he didn't find out what caused their rift. Baker hadn't spoken to Sosa since the former Cubs right fielder left the ballpark in the first inning of the team's last game of the 2004 season, then criticized Baker afterward for "blaming" the team's downfall on him. Baker decided to wait until after the trade with the Orioles was completed earlier this month to call Sosa.

APPARENTLY, SPECIAL thanks are due teen-age kidnap victims Jacqueline Marris and Tamara Brooks, whose courageous appearances on Today and the cover of People magazine have ushered the crime of rape into the sunshine where it belongs. The two California girls were grabbed from their cars while parked with boyfriends on a scenic overlook and terrorized for 12 hours before their abductor was shot to death Bonnie 'n' Clyde style by the rescuing police. Their nightmare continued when the morning news show bookers arrived, with their Spy vs. Spy tactics, to land the exclusive interview for their respective bosses.

When the Rev. Anthony Rohlsen heard the call - "They're here!" - he and his family drew together, huddling in a small circle in the back of a West Baltimore church. They didn't know quite what to do or say yesterday afternoon, only that they'd wanted so long to meet the woman outside. She had just arrived from the Eastern Shore, carrying nothing but a box wrapped in red paper. She didn't know what to expect either. But when Carol Butler saw the family and then spotted Rohlsen, 31, standing so strong and healthy, every move seemed natural.
