First lady Michelle Obama has shown us all how to deal with the nastiness that has infected American politics: do not indulge it. At a fundraiser in a private Washington residence last Tuesday night, a gay rights activist standing only a few steps away interrupted the first lady as she spoke. Michelle's reaction was immediate. She did not try to talk over the heckler or engage the person in a debate or pass it off as a joke or wait until the rant subsided. Instead, she stepped away from the microphone, walked over to the shouting woman and said, "Listen to me or you can take the mike, but I'm leaving.

Much has been made about President Barack Obama's budding friendship with Jay-Z, but there's another, perhaps more surprising artist you'll find on his iPod: Regina Spektor, the imaginative 32-year-old singer/songwriter whose latest album, "What We Saw from the Cheap Seats," debuted at No. 3 on the Billboard 200 in June. After Spektor played at the White House in 2010 for a celebration of Jewish-American heritage, the president hand-picked the Moscow-born singer to perform at a fundraising gala.

Former Montgomery County delegate, county executive candidate and well-known sports heckler Robin K.A. Ficker is out of the practice of law for at least a year. The Maryland Court of Appeals suspended his law license yesterday, saying that despite four previous warnings, he ran his Bethesda law office in a slipshod way to the detriment of clients. "I will be back practicing in a year," Ficker said yesterday, adding that his associates will continue to staff the office without him. With his real estate sales business, efforts to roll back the state sales tax and other initiatives, he said, "I've got plenty on my plate."

JUPITER, Fla. -- Orioles third baseman Cal Ripken became the target of a heckler in the second inning of yesterday's 4-0 loss to the Montreal Expos, exchanging angry words with the frustrated fan who was seated in the first row of seats behind home plate at Roger Dean Stadium.The fan apparently was upset because his son had been unsuccessful in several efforts to get Ripken's autograph. He was close enough to be heard easily at home plate, and a clearly agitated Ripken barked back at him on a couple of occasions.

Responding to questions about a reporter who interrupted President Barack Obama's immigration address in the Rose Garden on Friday, Rep.Elijah E. Cummings said he expected racism "probably had something to do with it. " In questioning Cummings during a television interview, MSNBC host Martin Bashir drew a line from Friday's incident to what he called "disrespectful behavior" toward U.S. Attorney General Eric Holder. Holder, who is also black, has been under fire for months from congressional Republicans over a widening weapons scandal at theBureau of Alcohol, Tobacco, Firearms and Explosives.

Another article in a series about the people and the jobs that define a Maryland summer. Every time Lisa Polinori takes the open-air stage at Harborplace, she wonders. Will she draw a decent crowd? Will spectators stick around to watch her juggle and joke atop a 6-foot unicycle? Will some drunk guy heckle her? And, not least: Who out there has some money? Because these days, she says, people all too often walk around with plenty of plastic in their wallets but not so much cash for tipping.

To hear Brad Faxon tell it, the hecklers will have no chance against Tiger Woods. Faxon recalled playing with Woods several years ago at The Players Championship. Between holes a man from the gallery yelled: "Hey, Tiger, I've got my red shirt on, but I'll let you wear it Sunday!" "This guy was serious," Faxon said. "And he was screaming. And Tiger had no reaction to it. "When you play with Tiger, the things that people say make you buckle in laughter and amazement. And he walks by like the deafest person in the world.

Ravens fans' disenchantment with the team's downward-spiraling season has been noticed. The boos during the second half of the Ravens' 21-7 loss to the Cincinnati Bengals on Sunday might not have elicited an on-field reaction, but afterward, the players acknowledged hearing the catcalls. "Yeah, it bothers me because I don't particularly know who they're booing," linebacker Terrell Suggs said in response to being asked whether the heckling bothered him. "They're booing us. These are my brothers, all of them.

LEESBURG, Va. -- Sen. George Allen came to Virginia's hunt country in pursuit of votes the other day and wound up getting hounded about his latest campaign embarrassments instead. Visibly relieved when an aide cut short his news conference at a tree farm, the senator made a beeline for his car, a pack of reporters hot on his heels. They wanted to know about the caught-on-tape manhandling of a heckler by Allen supporters and a conservative columnist's dismissive comments about the "accident-prone" senator, but Allen hopped in the vehicle and slammed the door.

The most important development of the first week of the NBA season very likely slipped under everybody's radar, what with a legendary league figure dying, players getting the law laid down to them over gunplay, and debates raging over the new high-tech, fancy-schmancy game ball. In a two-paragraph statement issued the day before the regular-season opener, the sport most routinely maligned by the public took a rock-solid stand in favor of those very same cynical fans. It announced that a spectator at a preseason game in Orlando, Fla., a week ago tonight had his Magic season tickets revoked and was banned from attending games anywhere in the NBA this season, for "direct[ing]

STATELINE, Nev. -- I couldn't wait for Ravens training camp, so I went in search of Kyle Boller over the weekend. Found him on the scenic shores of Lake Tahoe, where he was participating in the American Century Championship golf tournament along with Ben Roethlisberger and Charles Barkley and the handful of truly serious celebrity golfers who actually vie for the $100,000 first prize each year. Boller isn't bad, but he's no soap opera star. Jack Wagner of The Bold and the Beautiful became the first non-professional athlete to win the event when he edged former NFL quarterback Billy Joe Tolliver by 1 point in the tournament, which is played under a modified Stableford scoring system that gives points for pars, birdies and eagles and deducts points for anything worse than a bogey.
