I've been watching the ruckus surrounding Denise Whiting, the owner of the Café Hon, with a certain degree of perplexity. I am new to Baltimore, having moved here with my family this past August, so I feel like a person who has stepped into a movie theater halfway into the movie. I know I've missed important parts of the story and am trying to make sense of it all. What I can't understand is why Ms. Whiting is trying to control the use of the word "hon" through her trademarks and restrictions, including the one prohibiting merchants from selling cat's-eye sunglasses during Honfest 2011.

For at least one day, Mark Turgeon is the coach who banned Christmas. Not that the Terps are not going to be allowed to celebrate with their families next week, but until after the game against Saturday's Boston University (6-5) at Comcast Center, the word itself is banned from Maryland's collective vocabulary from the moment they get up Saturday. “He's being a Grinch right now,” junior guard Dez Wells said of his coach. “After tomorrow, he'll be better.” Coming off final exams, Maryland (7-4)

Fifty years ago my father, a Christmas baby, got the best birthday-Christmas present of his life: the safety and warmth of a military hospital in Paris, far away from the raging Battle of the Bulge.Almost a week into the battle, when the troops were resupplied with clean socks, he peeled off his dirty pair to discover frostbite on his feet. Removed from combat, he was shipped back from the front lines, arriving in Paris on Christmas Eve. Eventually, he TTC was assigned to desk duty in London, where he remained till the war was over.

ONE OF MY favorite holiday stories is the Dr. Seuss classic, "How the Grinch Stole Christmas." For those who don't remember, the fable goes like this: The dastardly Grinch hates happiness so much that he decides to ruin Christmas for the people of the valley by dressing up like Santa Claus and stealing their presents. On Christmas morning, however, he has a change of heart and, infused with the holiday spirit, returns the stolen presents to the children.This year, Congress is playing the part of the Grinch.

Every voter Down in Florida Liked voting a lot ... But the Grinch, Who lived outside of Florida, Did NOT! "They're hanging their chads!" he snarled with a sneer. "Each day's a new deadline! One's practically here!" Then he growled, with his Grinch face nervously bending, "I MUST find some way to stop the election from ending!" Then he got an idea! An awful idea. THE GRINCH GOT A WONDERFUL, AWFUL IDEA! He loaded some bags And some empty ballot boxes And stole the voters' votes From their stockings and soxes.

It's a well-established axiom that theater critics have hearts that are three sizes too small. How else could we skewer productions that folks in the audience - including the 5-year-old sitting on my lap - wholeheartedly enjoy? Such is the quandary facing this reviewer of the first national tour of D r. Seuss' How the Grinch Stole Christmas, which launched Thursday at the Hippodrome Theatre. Aspects of this holiday production that faithfully re-create the beloved children's book and television program - the scenery, costumes and special effects - as well as Stefan Karl's performance as the Grinch, are superb.

For those wanting to kick the holiday season into high gear or simply extend the festivities a bit longer, there's a winter holiday event that is sure to impress. The ICE! attraction at the Gaylord National Resort in National Harbor featuring "How the Grinch Stole Christmas" includes 2 million pounds of ice carvings depicting scenes straight out of the holiday classic tale. "It's a huge hit," said Amie Gorrell, director of public relations for the Gaylord National Resort. "It's so much fun. You actually walk through and see all those famous scenes you recognize from the original story.

How do you pack up a Broadway musical and take it on the road? You get a really, really big suitcase. The first national tour of Dr. Seuss' How the Grinch Stole Christmas! officially opens tonight at the Hippodrome Theatre (after two preview performances), when a cast of two-dozen performers shuffles across the stage in red, pointy-toed Who shoes. Putting together the $4 million national tour in Charm City requires nine semi-trailer trucks, a stage-floor-to-ceiling tree with star hung askew, a realistic rendition of Mount Crumpet with a sleigh full of presents teetering at the top, and catwalks full of confetti "snow."

Laura Mazelis got a workout trying to wipe the outdated Christmas Grinch off the doorway to the Margaret Smith Gallery on Main Street in Ellicott City the other day. She rubbed and sprayed, sprayed and rubbed, but the acrylic Grinch -- mean, green and all scrunched up as if sneaking down a chimney -- came off slowly, feet first. It did come off, and serves as a metaphor for the real-life Grinch that threatened Christmas this year: the fire Nov. 9 that destroyed five businesses and four apartments on Main Street across from the gallery.

Next season, more customers at the Hippodrome Theatre may be wearing mittens clipped to their coat sleeves. The France-Merrick Performing Arts Center (which houses the Hippodrome) always makes sure that a certain number of the shows it books each year is suitable for middle-school students and teens. But for the first time, its subscription series will include two musicals geared specifically toward elementary-school children. The 2008-2009 season is scheduled to be unveiled at a news conference this morning.

If you're in Baltimore for the holidays and can't get into the spirit, consider yourself a Grinch -- no city does Christmas like this city. Nearly every neighborhood gets into the act: From modest rowhouses in Highlandtown to large homes in Guilford, lights are strung, lawn displays are erected and an annual decoration overdrive commences. Few cities inject their personalities so effectively into their celebrations as Baltimore does. The Washington Monument serves as the city's official Christmas centerpiece.

The Cat in the Hat came, as did Cindy-Lou Who, plus Horton the elephant -- and Thing One and Thing Two. The famous characters of Dr. Seuss books lined the hallways, milled about classrooms and paraded through Sykesville's Carrolltowne Elementary, the school's contribution to a nationwide celebration of that rhyming raconteur, who would have been 103 years old Friday. The activities also commemorated the 50th anniversary of the capricious Cat in the Hat, the story of two children weathering a boring, rainy day -- until a cat in a red-and-white hat arrives and wreaks havoc with his antics.

Only a few days before Christmas, the little town of Lonaconing is not quite as merry as usual. And it's a lot less bright. While nearby towns sparkle with lights, this tiny coal-mining community in the mountains of Western Maryland lies still and sparsely decorated. Unless you count the blowup Grinch on Main Street. Some locals put up the Grinch as a prank - and a protest - after a utility pole dispute forced the town to abandon its 68-year tradition of stringing colored bulbs across Main Street.
