The night manager of a Pikesville motel was listed in serious condition today at the Shock-Trauma Unit in Baltimore after being shot during a robbery that police believe was one of four committed by the same gang of heavily armed men in a span of four hours.Area police said that while the robberies yesterday were believed to have been committed by the same men, they probably are not the gunmen who have terrorized city and county businesses since Halloween night, when the first of more than 20 armed robberies of restaurants and food markets began.

As President Obama embarks on his sixth year in the Oval Office, he does so with a greater reality of the political equation he faces, as clearly demonstrated the other night in his State of the Union address. The freshman chief executive five years ago entered the office expressly committed to change the way Washington worked. But now he's acknowledged to Congress and the nation that fundamental change was an illusion. As long as pivotal elements in the legislative branch are dug in against his aspirations for legislative cooperation, Mr. Obama has admitted, he has to rely on his own executive powers and persuasion.

Why in the world is it taking so long for Orioles reliever Luis Ayala to decide whether he's going to pitch for Mexico in the World Baseball Classic? It's a reasonable question. We've been waiting for that news going on three days now. Hopefully, we find out this morning. But the thing is, we're not really waiting on Ayala's decision. From talking to him, it sounds like he wants to represent his home country.
