Tom Petty has been making albums with the Heartbreakers since 1976, but "Mojo" is the first studio release in which the band sounds like it's on equal footing with the songs. Tom Petty has been making albums with the Heartbreakers since 1976, but "Mojo" is the first studio release in which the band sounds like it's on equal footing with the songs. That's both a plus and minus. Petty's best songs have a certain economy best served by terse arrangements and the self-effacing interplay of his bandmates.

Tuesday morning in a coffee shop, I heard someone wonder why Brandon Finney, the Shock Trauma surgical technician who was shot to death Sunday night, had been standing near Lexington Market at such a late hour. What was he doing there at 11:30? The question suggested that anyone who ventured after hours near the city's historic market - notable for fresh fish and produce on the inside, and too many drug addicts on the outside - must be either up to no good or asking for trouble. But the answer, it turns out, was simple: Brandon Finney had been waiting for the bus. That's what most people do in Baltimore - the working, contributing, responsible people, that is, as opposed to the losers who degrade and debase the city with their guns and cowardice, with stupidity and recklessness.

Perhaps Tom Petty was just stating the obvious when he called The Heartbreakers "a multi-talented bunch of guys."Maybe, in his own strange way, he is guilty of the understatement of the year.But sometimes an adoring crowd, like the small but passionate one gathered at the Capital Centre last night, gets a little too enamored with the quarterback to fully appreciate the front line that does much of the dirty work. A subtle little reminder can never hurt.In this case, Petty's Heartbreakers (is it really fair to give him the possessive?

Two Maryland lawmakers said Friday they will ask a state Senate committee to explore the death of a 10-year-old disabled foster child who was in the care of a group home. Another state senator who advocates for people with disabilities said the boy's death at the Laurel-area group home pointed to a shortage of funding and resources to serve vulnerable people in Maryland. The Baltimore Sun reported Thursday that the boy died as the state was in the process of shutting down the home amid concern about staffing problems at the center.

Oh, how movie audiences love to see people caught with their pants down, both literally and figuratively. So "Heartbreakers" has a lot going for it even before the opening credits roll; it allows us to see people de-trousered in both ways. This story of a mother-daughter con-artist team, in which first mom marries their mark, then daughter seduces him (and the ladies split the ensuing considerable divorce settlement), is filled with sexual innuendo, embarrassing situations and enough flimsy negligees and short skirts to fill a Victoria's Secret catalog.

INTO THE GREAT WIDE OPENTom Petty and the Heartbreakers (MCA 40317)Like Bob Dylan, Tom Petty has one of rock's best deadpans, a drawling, laconic delivery which, on record, seems to carry all the menace of a floating log. But just as floating logs sometimes turn out to be alligators, Petty's seemingly affectless singing can conceal quite a bite. That's certainly the case with "Into the Great Wide Open," his latest with the Heartbreakers. As the album ambles through its mid-tempo ballads and low-key rockers, Petty's sly tunefulness almost lulls the listener into accepting these songs at face value.

There's a reason North Carolina coach Roy Williams can't remember the last time the Tar Heels played Duke when both programs were trying to rebound from a loss - it's only happened four times in the past 30 years. Tonight marks the fifth, when No. 16 Duke (18-5, 5-4 Atlantic Coast Conference) hosts No. 5 North Carolina (20-3, 6-2) at 9 p.m. The conference standings have undergone a makeover from their traditional look, and part of that is because Duke has already lost four league games and entered the week tied for fifth place.

NASHVILLE, Tenn. - No current Maryland player has made it to a Final Four. Senior guard Katie Rutan once came tantalizingly close, but not with the Terps. Rutan was a Xavier sophomore in 2010 when the Musketeers found themselves tied with Stanford late in a regional final. Stanford's Jeanette Pohlen drove the length of the floor in 4.4 seconds for a layup at the buzzer to send the Cardinal to the Final Four with a 55-53 victory. Xavier had missed two layups in the final minute.

So this is the storyline that divided "Downton" fans in the U.K. And it's easy to see why. Anna has always been the one "Downton" character, upstairs or downstairs, who we all rooted for and loved from the beginning. She's been through a lot: covering up Pamuk's death, dealing with her husband, Bates, in prison, helping to free him from prison ... not to mention having to dress Lady Mary. And to see such a horrible thing happen to her is difficult to watch. In the midst of a party upstairs, as famous opera soprano Nellie Melba sings a touching, lovely song, she is attacked and raped by the valet of a visiting guest.  As Melba sings "O mio babbino caro," dedicated to love and lovers, Anna, who had left the concert (and her husband's side)

It is old-school, all right, but one of the traditions columnists observe at this time of year is to highlight a favorite charity, reminding readers who have donated in the past to do so again. So again this year I will focus on "Be a Santa to a Senior," a holiday fund-raising campaign to provide a little something to those who are the most vulnerable among us - the aging poor. It was begun a decade ago by Paul and Lori Hogan, founders of Home Instead Senior Care, which provides nonmedical, in-home care for seniors.

It's always difficult to watch, but it happens with each passing season in all sports. A group comes together with the goal of winning a state title, only to fall short despite the players doing everything they could to make it happen. This time, it was the No. 2 Arundel girls soccer team. The Wildcats played fantastic in Thursday's Class 4A East Section I final against No. 7 Severna Park. But as good as they were with their possession game to create scoring chances, the Falcons were just as good at defending.

Sunday night's NCAA women's lacrosse championship was a game of firsts. Unfortunately for No. 1 Maryland, they weren't happy firsts. In the longest game in women's tournament history, North Carolina upset the No. 1 Terps, 13-12, on Sammy Jo Tracy's transition goal in triple overtime to win its first national championship before 9,391 fans at Villanova Stadium. It was the first loss of the season for the Terps (22-1) and the first time they had lost an NCAA tournament overtime game in seven tries.

With all the Branson revolutionary-ing, Lady Edith altar-jilting and Bates jail-rotting, it was easy to forget that Lady Sybil was, you know, about to give birth. And she does in this episode. But in a huge surprise, she doesn't make it -- dead at 24 after giving birth to a girl. Yes, we still have something in our eye. Watching Tom Branson and Cora hover over Sybil, weeping, crying for her to make it and don't leave them was perhaps the most emotional moment of the whole series so far.  Sigh, how did this happen?

Fort Worth, Texas.-- STARING DEEPLY into my eyes she told me, ''I put your number in the Rolodex today.''Not quite the declaration of undying love I'd hoped for -- something along the lines of ''I've waited for you all my life,'' perhaps -- but with age, our perspective on these things changes. We become either more desperate or calmer. More desperate didn't seem humanly possible, so I was working on calm.And for Susan, even though, as she pointed out, leaves were forever falling from that Rolodex never to be seen again, inclusion therein was signal.

"Don't be a stranger" -- Peggy Olson I went to a wedding a few weeks ago, and the conversation at my table, as it often does, turned to "Mad Men. " A few guests were very adamant about Season 5; "lackluster" and "disappointing" were the most commonly used words. I've been back and forth about this season, but have always thought there has been more good moments than bad. After last week's glaring misstep, I was getting worried. But tonight's beyond-excellent episode, which ranks right up there with episodes "The Suitcase" and "Shut the Door.

For much of its 99-minute running time, "Lovely Molly" brings heartbreaking psychological horror to the world of the 99 percent. This story of a young wife (Gretchen Lodge) who goes crazy or is possessed by a demon — or both — takes place in an America of limited opportunities. It's a haunted-house movie with a contemporary existential charge. Molly does cleaning work in a mall and marries Tim (Johnny Lewis), a truck driver who stays away for days on end. They move into her late parents' house — a rambling stone construction in the middle of a desolate nowhere — because she and her devoted sister, Hannah (Alexandra Holden)
