Elections have consequences. People who attain political power daily make decisions that affect citizens in myriad ways, some not so obvious. For example, one of the more underanalyzed (but long lasting) consequences of a re-elected Barack Obama is the ongoing expansion of federal control, overseen by an administration intent on federalizing just about anything standing in its way.

When most people think about Creamsicles, they probably picture the fruity frozen dessert. Monica Williams, however, envisioned a cookie. Williams, who owns the baking operation From Momma's Kitchen, has made a second career out of concocting decadent desserts. The 43-year-old former principal of Celebration Christian Academy in Columbia has been experimenting with cookies ever since she started baking at just 8 years old in her mom's kitchen in Philadelphia. “I added M&M's to the first batch of chocolate chip cookies I made,” she remembers.

Two years ago, when Cat's Eye Pub owner Tony Cushing died, Fells Point bar lovers wondered what would become of the classic Thames Street haunt. The Cat's Eye stood for all that was great about historic Fells Point: the mix of rough-and-tough old-timers and yuppies, the daily lineup of sharp bar bands and the snug, wipe-but-don't-scrub decor. Cushing's son, Tony, who had moved back to Baltimore to pitch in with the pub several years before his father died, stepped up and became a co-owner.

Hours after Baltimore Mayor Sheila Dixon was indicted on charges of theft, perjury and misuse of office, she headed to the industrial-chic offices of her lead defense attorney, where dozens of reporters and photographers had gathered. Instead of perfunctory statements of innocence and a caution to wait for a trial, the public heard a full-throated response to the unseemly allegations that have swirled around Dixon as a nearly three-year probe of City Hall corruption plodded along. The star was not Dixon, who read a short statement, but her lawyer: Arnold M. Weiner, veteran defender of indicted politicians, including former Maryland Gov. Marvin Mandel.

Back at the dawn of Baltimore television, when the Sunpapers owned the first station here, a 25-year-old Evening Sun reporter named Jim McManus agreed to work in front of the camera for $65 a week. It was 1947. The station, WMAR-TV, had to fill hours upon hours with original programming. So its crews did remote telecasts, running from the races at Pimlico to supermarket openings to professional wrestling matches at the old Baltimore Coliseum. McManus, a reporter and announcer, didn't care for the pro wrestling assignment.

NEW YORK -- Two hundred people a day are calling the consumer affairs office of Hallmark Cards Inc. in Kansas City screaming for a $20 replica of the Starship Enterprise from "Star Trek" with blinking red and green lights. It is Hallmark's most successful Christmas ornament since it launched the Hallmark Keepsake Magic Christmas Ornaments line in 1973.At a time when it seems like nothing is selling, there doesn't seem to be a store anywhere where the Starship hasn't sold out."This is the most demand we have ever had for a single ornament," said Betsy Helgager, spokeswoman for Hallmark cards.

There's always something new from Hallmark, the sappy, greeting-card people, and this year is no exception. This year's ground-breaking innovation is: Mother's Day cards that let you record a 10-second message to Mom and play a clip of the song that's apparently become synonymous with motherhood, Tag Team's "Whoomp! There It Is." OK, maybe you're thinking: Gee, I didn't know that song was big with mothers. Well, neither did I. In fact, I seem to recall lyrics about shaking derrieres and swilling gin and juice and puff- ing something stronger than a Marlboro Light.

Recent news stories have convinced me it's time for another Janet's World Current Events Poetry Column, where I attempt to make sense of what's being reported on the local and national scene through meticulously crafted verse with snappy end-rhymes. But first, let me say that I understand your discomfort when you hear the word "poetry." Like me, you probably think, "But I spent a week reading T.S. Eliot's The Love Song of J. Alfred Prufrock in high school, and I still don't know what in the blazes it means."
