On a night when we saw a six-man tag match involving John Cena, Roman Reigns and Chris Jericho be the main event, all the buzz came from the announcement that the WWE is inviting Michael Sam to Raw in Baltimore next week. Midway through this Monday's Raw , the WWE ran a graphic (complete with Monday Night Football graphic and music) officially announcing that they were inviting the recently released Sam to Raw. JBL commented that he couldn't believe Sam wasn't signed to a team, and how unfair that was. Cole said that if Sam does accept, he'd be granted ringtime and an open mic to say whatever he wanted.

Gerald Allen Elkins, a retired Department of Planning map maker and graphic artist who detailed Baltimore's transformation for more than four decades, died of cancer Nov. 28 at his Ocean Pines home. The former Overlea resident was 65.

Stosur. "He would not only create the striking maps and graphics, but he would mount them professionally, advise on setup and display, transport the maps and supplies to meetings, set up the room, help out at the meeting, break down the room after the meeting, then go drinking with the rest of the team afterward!"

Checked out Fox SportsNet's Final Score the other night. It's a fast-paced, fairly straightforward presentation of the day's sports news. But could they possibly throw more graphics up on the screen? I felt like I needed Ritalin after just five minutes. And maybe all of the on-screen graphics are just as confusing to the people who work there. During highlights of the Eagles-Browns preseason game, the logos on the screen were for the Phillies and Indians. ray.frager@baltsun.com Read Ray Frager's sports media blog at www.baltimoresun.

When eight high school students are commissioned to make a graphic novel about sexual health, don't be surprised if the result includes pet dragons, a troll with genital warts and a guy named Funk Master Flexin'. These comedic touches appear in a booklet created during a six-week summer program for students at the Baltimore City Health Department that aims to raise awareness about sexual health and the department's relocated young adult center in Druid Hill. Meeting twice a week beginning July 8, the students were asked to write, photograph, draw, scan and digitally edit three stories about sexually transmitted diseases and birth control, and assemble them in a booklet.

The Baltimore City Police created a new logo for #ASaferBaltimore social media campaign. In an attempt to be interactive and social media savvy, they asked their Twitter followers what they thought of all the design. Big mistake. "If this were the 80s, I'd say you nailed it," wrote @ TimmyWade94 . Others placed the design in the 1970s or 90s. Several opined that it appeared to be the title sequence of a 90s sitcom, perhaps a sequel to "Perfect Strangers. " Some wondered what the technology the department used to create the logo.

"Serious" desktop publishing is my term for those people who want to use their computer to best advantage in text and graphic design. "Serious" desktop publishing requires a certain amount of computer horsepower -- gadgets and hardware requirements above and beyond simple word processing.Let's start with the computer itself. A year ago, computer stores ballyhooed "640K RAM" as being "all the memory you need." Now many stores advertise a full megabyte of memory as a standard feature. If you want to desktop-publish as a professional, you will need more RAM -- at least 2MB, preferably 4MB. Desktop publishing programs hunger for memory, as do graphics.

James R. Adams, a giant on Madison Avenue during the years immediately after World War II, once said that advertising is the "principal reason why the business man has come to inherit the Earth. " Surely, the three weeks prior to an election give further reason why modern "Mad Men" still have a lot to say about how people behave at the polls, let alone the marketplace. Those ads for Question 7 that have flooded Maryland's airwaves in recent weeks aren't detached, dry recitations of why expanded gambling is good or bad for Maryland.

After many years of frustration, the map accompanying the story about waterfront development near White Marsh ("Battle lines form over site near bay," May 25) forces me to ask: When is The Sun going to provide graphics containing useful information pertinent to the story? For example, the article describes 292 acres of woods and fields now zoned for conservation. Wouldn't a topographic map or aerial view have been a better depiction of the land and the surrounding area? And how about introducing actual property lines rather than a dot indicating the general area?
