PORTSMOUTH, N.H. - Former Vermont Gov. Howard Dean must wake up these mornings wondering what good news will fall his way next. His endorsement for president by former Vice President Al Gore was a huge surprise in its timing, less than six weeks before the first votes in the 2004 Democratic nomination race are cast in Iowa. But considering Dr. Dean's outspoken opposition to President Bush's invasion of Iraq and his handling of the aftermath, it made sense because Mr. Gore has been similarly critical.

The fastest man in baseball drives with caution. When Terrance Gore was a sophomore in high school, his mother spent about $500 on a 1980 El Camino, and her son restored it with care. He painted the car candy apple red, upgraded the engine and installed 22-inch chrome rims. “That's my baby,” Gore said. He treats his wheels with reverence. The vehicle resides under cover at his home in Georgia. No one is allowed to drive it. Gore expected to return home to his car after the minor-league season ended.

SEN. Al Gore is a scary guy. Though today, as a candidate for vice president, he smiles and aw-shucks his retreat from some of the proposals in his book, "Earth in the Balance," the work itself reveals him to be a glazed-eyed, environmental ideologue.The tone of the tome is urgent earnestness. Like all converts, Mr. Gore is impatient with those who continue to doubt. Doubts never cloud his new vision -- nor does he trouble much about factual accuracy. The book, for all its fine organization and skilled (if pedantic)

COLLEGE PARK -- L.A. Goree was small enough as a freshman at Maryland in 2010 that former Terps coach Ralph Friedgen asked Goree to switch from linebacker to safety. Goree was a contributor for Maryland even while lacking prototypical size. But he is bigger and stronger than he has ever been as he enters his senior season. After weighing just 205 pounds as a freshman, the 6-foot-2 Goree began preseason camp earlier this month weighing 245 pounds. Goree increased his weight to 235 pounds heading into last year and put on 17 pounds this offseason after finishing last year weighing 228. “I've never been 245 in my life,” said Goree, a Bowie native who played at C.H. Flowers High School.

Vice President Al Gore took on Ross Perot in his favorite forum -- the Larry King Show -- and soundly thrashed him in their NAFTA debate Tuesday night. Despite the barbs and the bitterness of the encounter, despite Mr. Gore's uncharacteristic aggressiveness and thorough preparation, what really defeated Mr. Perot was the inescapable logic of breaking down trade barriers and opening up markets with a resurgent Mexico."This is a good deal for America," Mr. Gore argued. With the elimination of high Mexican tariffs, U.S. corporations will have less incentive to move their plants south of the Rio Grande.

NEW YORK -- Al Gore introduced himself to America last night as a father as well as a politician, describing how he nearly lost his son in an accident outside Memorial Stadium in Baltimore three years ago.Young Albert was struck by a car after an Orioles game. For 30 days, the Tennessee senator and his wife, Tipper, remained at his bedside at Johns Hopkins Hospital, Mr. Gore recalled in his speech accepting the vice presidential nomination."That experience changed me forever," he said. "When you've seen your 6-year-old son fighting for his life, you realize that some things matter more than winning, and you lose patience with the lazy assumption of so many in politics that we can always just muddle through."

If you are not finding enough gore and mayhem at the movies this summer, you should be able to get your fill from a couple of Baltimore's ambitious, DIY-style theater companies, all served up with considerable gusto. In the process, you'll also get to experience two extraordinary theatrical works that do not come around often. Mobtown Players' 'The Spanish Tragedy' The bloodiest encounter is offered by Mobtown Players, a troupe that was recently flooded out of its home in Woodberry.

A gala of gore attracted a human figure adorned with sharp plastic claws and accompanied by a little fake blood cocktail sauce. Baltimore's Zombie Gras is that kind of event. The fourth annual celebration of creative decomposition and masterful makeup drew hundreds of aficionados Saturday to Geppi's Entertainment Museum. The blood was all fake, and those who spent hours applying it were more than willing to discuss their approach to graveyard glamour in the setting of classic movie posters and treasures of the golden age of horror, imagination and adventure.

His 16 tackles are the most by a Maryland player since Demetrius Hartsfield had 18 at North Carolina State on Nov. 26, 2011. Goree spoke after Saturday's game abaout how important it was for Maryland to rebound from its 63-0 loss at Florida State a week earlier.

The Supreme Court's mixed bag of decisions in the session's final days, particularly on voting rights and same-sex marriage, seized the nation's headlines but did little to bolster its own clarity or credibility. Interested non-lawyers were left dependent on legal experts to sort out where this highest bench, with a general but not rigidly consistent conservative majority, comes down in today's cultural and political climate. Liberal defenders of the Voting Rights Act's preclearance monitoring of discriminatory practices in states, mostly in the Deep South, were jolted by the court's split decision to abandon the provision.

I don't care if Al Gore got more money than he ever deserved for his pathetic channel, or Glenn Beck got the short end of the stick in trying to buy it as an escape from his prison of media marginalization. All of that is ideological and personality-obsessed, pop-culture nonsense that misses the point of the sale of Current TV to Al Jazeera. What's important is that Al Jazeera has found a way into an estimated 40 million American homes through the purchase of Gore's mismanaged channel, and that is a good thing - a very good thing.

AL GORE'S RELIEF at pulling himself out of the 2004 presidential race was evident during his performance on Saturday Night Live, hours before his decision was announced. His spoof of Senate Majority Leader Trent Lott's alleged segregationist sympathies was wickedly funny, but highly impolitic. He also poked fun at his own White House yearnings with a lighthearted abandon missing from his plodding campaign persona. In liberating himself, Mr. Gore made the right decision, of course. All indications at this point suggest a Gore rematch with President Bush would have been much more difficult for him than the first contest.

Former vice president Al Gore will anchor convention coverage on his Current TV channel, it was announced Wednesday. This is what happens if you own the candy store, I guess. But when was the last time a former Nobel Prize winner sat in the anchor chair at a convention? Gore's presence just made me add Current to the list of channels I will be watching and reviewing. I can hardly wait for the tweets from deposed Current anchor Keith Olbermann. I hope he won't be silenced by pending lawsuits.

It should come as no surprise that in the latest New York Times/CBS News Poll, less than half of Americans surveyed -- 44 percent -- said they approve of theU.S. Supreme Court. Furthermore, three-quarters said they believed individual personal and political views sometimes determine the justices' votes, rather than legal analysis. There was a time when such an assessment would be shocking. Of the three branches of the federal government, the judicial had always been rated far higher in public approval, and in reliability for objectivity, than either the legislative or the executive.
