What was it about the look on President George W. Bush's face while he delivered the State of the Union address Tuesday night? That grin, I thought as I watched the president of all the people. It seemed infuriatingly familiar. But why? Then it came to me. I've seen grins like that on the faces of men who have just bluffed me out of a big pot at the poker table with nothing in their hands. Bush may be president of the people, but he is not president by the people. Most Americans who voted in the 2000 election cast their ballots for someone else.

Let me see if I understand this: Marquel Gaffney, 15, murdered Albert Smith, 56, in 2007, was charged as an adult, but pleaded guilty of second-degree murder and was sentenced in juvenile court ( "Baltimore man, 21, charged in second murder in five years," Aug. 5).

You have to look long and hard -- past the silky blond hair, the pink polka-dotted jacket, the dimpled grin -- to find something Cynthia Kereluk would change about herself.In a world where anyone with a leotard and an attitude can sell fitness, she has it pretty good -- and knows it. Her "roving aerobics" commercials, during which she turns dairy-friendly locales (grocery stores, bakeries, schools) into quasi-milk bars and gyms, have earned her the nickname "the Dairy Lady."But once you get beyond the fact that she's never had a cavity, never broken a bone and only once in her 32 years ever tried a Coca-Cola ("My ears are still fizzing from it")

Editor: It is not even the sex. When I was a kid we called a book like "Fifty Shades of Grey" a "dirty book. " But Fifty Shades is so much more than that. As a person who reads and is involved in a wonderful book club, I had to find out what all the fuss was about. I can say, pretty definitively, that this is the worst book I have ever forced myself to read/skim. I have found that a bad book in a literary sense has certain red flags. One red flag is the use of the verb "grin.

Jerwon Bethel spent his summer sewing a denim ensemble -- vest, shorts and two hats -- that he struts in every chance he gets.A reversible vest gives it that store-bought look, and it fits fine, thank you.Twelve-year-old Jerwon learned his skills in the past two months at Edmondson Westside High School's Career Technology Summer Camp.The six-week program introduces Baltimore seventh- and eighth-graders to vocational options through 13 courses that focus on such pursuits as styling hair, designing homes on the computer, and baking cakes.

As the Ravens prepare to tangle with the New England Patriots in today's AFC wild-card game, there's a prevailing thought that Trevor Pryce might be spending his last days with the organization. If that's the case, the defensive end - who is 34 and has one year remaining on his contract with the Ravens - isn't giving it much thought. "I've never thought about that," Pryce said recently. "I didn't think about my future when I was with the Broncos in '03 because the future is not now. I don't have six more years in me. If I do, I probably won't play for six more years.

"Class Action" is like a play for two characters set in a mannequin warehouse. Everybody in this film besides its stars Gene Hackman and Mary Elizabeth Mastrantonio is a stiff.There's a handsome, venal lawyer (Colin Friels), an ardent black attorney (Larry Fishburne), a sanctimonious but pompous WASP corporate partner (Donald Moffat), an earthy earth mother (Joanna Merlin), a stuttering victim of corporate indifference (David Byron). . .and so on.The gimmick is clever, but only intermittently effective.

Several joking references to Chip Ganassi's disposition were made the morning after driver Jamie McMurray delivered the first Daytona 500 victory for both men. "Chip, does this prove nice guys can finish first?" a reporter asked. A pause followed and smirks began developing around the room. "In the case of Jamie," the reporter clarified, and all those on stage - McMurray, Kevin Manion and Felix Sabates - and everyone watching them burst into laughter. Ganassi even chuckled.

Archbishop Spalding's Jason Patten said he started thinking about a perfect game in the fifth inning of last Wednesday's game against St. Paul's. "I had had great location with my fastball and was hitting my spots well," said Patten, who threw the first perfect game of six innings or more since North County's Mike Wooden in 1994. "I mixed in sliders to their best hitter, Jack Carey, and struck him out once. I started thinking about in the fifth inning or so. I thought, 'Wow, I just need a couple more outs.

The miraculous thing about Jack Nicholson is that he can make even schmaltz entertaining. Perhaps it's the deep-in-the-bone sense of mischief that courses through many of his performances. Some screw is permanently loose, leading to such whacked-out delights as The Shining, the nastiness in Five Easy Pieces, the raunchy rebelliousness of One Flew Over the Cuckoo's Nest and Terms of Endearment, even the surly focus of Chinatown. He has the gift of being ironic and totally present at the same time.

The dental drill looked a little unsteady in Christine Allen's hand. "I'm going to drill the tooth now," Allen, 23, said through her surgical mask. With a tap of her foot on a pedal, the drill whirred. That cringe-inspiring squeal has been one of the few constants over the past few months at the University of Maryland Dental School. In September, the school moved into a $145 million building in Baltimore and in the process entered a new stage in dental education. The most visible aspect of the shift is a $3.5 million simulation facility where 172 artificial patients, dubbed "phantoms," recline in computer-equipped chairs.

In this roomful of savvy politicians, Kathleen Kennedy Townsend -- wearing thick glasses, no makeup and a broad grin -- looks more like a student of government than the guest speaker.She's among the youngest at this networking breakfast for Maryland women legislators. She's never been elected to office on her own. And her informal talk -- You can make a difference . . . Get involved -- has more spirit than substance.Rather than speaking, though, she's here to get a crash course in local politics.
