Sarcoidosis is defined by the dictionary as ``a chronic disease of unknown cause, characterized by the formation of nodules resembling true tubercles in the lymph nodes, lungs, bones, skin and other organs.''It primarily afflicts African-Americans. It hit John Anderson last fall and affected his brain. Almost overnight, an active 41-year-old letter carrier known to his customers along Liberty Road as the ``singing mailman'' lost the ability to walk, to speak clearly, to drive a car and to write.

Lise Van Susteren, the only woman running for Maryland's open U.S. Senate seat, bowed out of the race yesterday, pointing to concern that she would not be able to raise enough money to emerge from the crowded Democratic primary field. A forensic psychiatrist and political neophyte, Van Susteren said in a statement that she would not yet endorse one of her Democratic opponents but promised to help the eventual nominee to victory in November. "We need to elect people from diverse occupational backgrounds, who bring skills honed from success in other areas, and whose life experiences sharpen their passion to consider the lives of real people when making policy," she said.

Psychiatrist Lise Van Susteren, a political novice and sister of Fox News television personality Greta Van Susteren, announced her candidacy for the U.S. Senate yesterday, saying she wants to fix the nation's fractured health care system and doesn't think current officeholders are up to the task. "I am not a career politician. I am a citizen fed up with the way the country is headed," Van Susteren, 54, said during a kickoff speech at the American Visionary Art Museum in Baltimore. "While they may be well meaning, I have lost confidence that the professional politicians can turn things around," she said.

The Muse in Exile: Emigres and Divas series continues Thursday with Ninotchka, a 1939 romance named for a lovely Bolshevik in Paris played by Greta Garbo. The picture weds the understated virtuosity of Ernst Lubitsch's direction to the unabashed wisecracking of a script by Billy Wilder, Charles Brackett and Walter Reisch. The movie is full of cynical jokes in what became the established Wilder manner: Ninotchka defends Stalin's purges with the declaration, "There are going to be fewer but better Russians!"

Hundreds of demonstrators streamed into the Inner Harbor on Thursday evening to protest police misconduct and brutality and stand in solidarity with residents of Ferguson, Mo., where the fatal police shooting of an 18-year-old has sparked days of civil unrest. The rally began as dozens of people gathered outside the Clarence M. Mitchell Jr. Courthouse, then walked southeast to city police headquarters to decry the deaths of men in the custody of Baltimore police or after police interactions.

The wind whipped against my skirt as I hurried to the restaurant. This week had been grueling.I craved the peacefulness of a solitary lunch. I could relate to Greta Garbo's famous line, "I want to be alone." Perhaps that's why I ordered the Greta Garbo sandwich ($3.75) from the menu.Or perhaps I ordered it because it sounded so enticing: chicken salad, bacon, Swiss cheese, lettuce, tomato and mayo. I specified pumpernickel bread.The day was so brisk I had to have something warm, like soup.

MARLENE DIETRICH. By Maria Riva. Knopf. 799 pages. $27.50.IF there ever was any question of the gap between the personal lives and public images of Hollywood movie stars, this book on Marlene Dietrich by her daughter, Maria Sieber Riva, should settle it forever. The legendary Dietrich, worshiped by millions, emerges asa mean, spiteful, self-centered, boozing, pill-popping witch obsessed with protecting her sex-goddess image well into her 80s.It's an utterly different portrait from that painted in Maximilian Schell's graceful documentary, "Marlene," and in recent biographies by Donald Spoto ("Blue Angel")

I promised myself I was going to give CNN's new weeknight host Erin Burnett a full week of shows before I reviewed her. It was hard keeping that promise Monday night when I saw her pay a visit to the Occupy Wall Street encampment so she could look down her nose and mock the folks there. I thought it downright cruel the way she and her producer cut one kid from the herd and then tried to make him look like a fool. This was cool kids mocking outsiders on the playground, and it made me angry.
