Former NFL wide receiver Donte Stallworth, who played for the Ravens in 2010 and spent the summer as a coaching intern with the team, joined the Huffington Post last night as a politics fellow covering national security, the site announced . Far be it from me to talk about his credentials, but it's clear to see this is another interesting step for Stallworth. He joined the Ravens in 2010, after a year-long suspension for vehicular manslaughter. He wasn't very productive for the Ravens but was popular with his teammates and won the Ed Block Courage award.

Every year we are subjected to lists. Forbe's magazine lists the world's wealthiest individuals. Time magazine lists the most "influential" people, though real influence is difficult to define or quantify. What I've never seen is a list of satisfied people, much less stories about how they attained satisfaction. Arianna Huffington is trying to fill that gap. One of the world's biggest Type A personalities, Huffington, who launched The Huffington Post in 2005 and whose picture appears alongside celebrities, politicians and business icons, is now asking a question popularized in an old song by the late Peggy Lee: "Is that all there is?"

A political novice comes to town, preaching change and rampant wealth by tax cut. He carries a thick billfold earned in Arcadia - the private sector - and peels off millions for ugly ads attacking the character and culture of his competition. The people like it - a maverick with a message.For a while, anyway.The script fits Steve Forbes, whose self-financed run for the Republican presidential nomination is raising hopes and hackles. While he is seen as a private-sector savior by some, the press and his opponents ridicule him as cartoonish - "Richie Rich" on a lark.

California's primary elections point to a very expensive Senate race in the fall. Democrats nominated Sen. Diane Feinstein, who was elected to fill out a term two years ago. Republicans nominated Rep. Mike Huffington, who won his House seat two years ago, too. They are a couple of big spenders.Mr. Huffington spent $5.4 million to win his House seat -- most of that his own money. He has vowed to spend whatever it takes out of his own pocket to win the Senate seat. That could be a lot. There were two Senate races in California in 1992 -- and the four principal candidates spent $33 million total.

SAN FRANCISCO -- Back in 1966, when movie actor Ronald Reagan was seeking his first term as governor of California, he told a story about what he believed would happen if there were no public welfare and your neighbor's house burned down.Within hours, he said cheerily in an interview aboard his campaign plane, fellow neighbors would take the victim family in, feed, clothe and house it, and start rebuilding the house. Therefore, when we were all our brothers' keepers on a volunteer basis, who needed public welfare?

Solvitur ambulando -- "It is solved by walking. " This was the solution of St. Augustine to one of Zeno's paradoxes, the thought experiment in which the 5th century B.C. philosopher Zeno of Elea used the concept of the infinite divisibility of time and space to prove that we can never actually arrive at a destination. And so came St. Augustine's very efficient answer. But as it turns out, there are many other problems and paradoxes that can be solved by walking. For instance: in our culture of overwork, burnout and exhaustion, in which we're connected and distracted 24/7 from most things that are truly important in our lives, how do we tap into our creativity, our wisdom, our capacity for wonder, our well-being and our ability to connect with what we really value?

Whatever the ultimate impact of AOL's $315 million acquisition of the Huffington Post on the new-media landscape, it's already clear that the merger will push more journalists more deeply into the tragically expanding low-wage sector of our increasingly brutal economy. That's a development that will hurt not only the people who gather and edit the news but also readers and viewers. To understand why, it's helpful to step back from the wide-eyed coverage focused on foundering AOL's last-ditch effort to stave off the oblivion of irrelevance, or Arianna Huffington's astonishing commercial achievement in taking her Web news portal from startup to commercial success in less than six years.

WASHINGTON -- Here's an inviting and cautionary note from an old-media geezer to the new-school bloggers, Webheads and YouTubers: Welcome. You're a valuable addition to the presidential landscape. Just don't get too full of yourselves. I am moved to inject this little dose of realism into all of the hoopla that has followed the unmasking of the man who created and placed the hilarious "Big Sister" ad that lampoons Sen. Hillary Rodham Clinton on YouTube. Drawing more than 2 million hits in its first days, the spoof re-edits Apple's classic "Big Brother" Super Bowl TV ad to portray the New York Democrat as an Orwellian talking-head image on a huge screen that is shattered by a feisty young woman with an iPod in her ears.

In more than 30 years as a writer, social commentator and political gadfly, Arianna Huffington has set her steely, hazel-eyed gaze on everyone from Pablo Picasso to Dick Cheney. Few have emerged unscathed. "Chutzpah doesn't even begin to describe the vice president of the United States suggesting that the outcome of the Connecticut primary might embolden `al Qaeda types,'" she wrote recently on her Web site, HuffingtonPost.com, about Sen. Joseph Lieberman's loss to an anti-war challenger.

LOS ANGELES -- There is always a lot of talk in politics about buying elections. But here in California, voters are involved this year in what amounts to a laboratory test of the proposition that money alone can win a seat in the U.S. Senate.The principal figure in this experiment is Rep. Michael Huffington, a 46-year-old freshman Republican congressman who is challenging Sen. Dianne Feinstein, a Democrat who appeared politically invulnerable just three or four months ago.Mr. Huffington is a lifelong Texan who moved himself and his personal fortune into Santa Barbara in 1991 and promptly used $5.2 million of his own money -- an all-time record for any congressional candidate in any campaign -- to win a seat in the House of Representatives in 1992.

OAKLAND, Calif. -- The other morning, Democratic Sen. Dianne Feinstein stood outside a home only now being rebuilt after the devastation of the bay area's 1991 firestorms. A neighborhood resident, Margey Gibson Haskell, shook her hand and told her: "If this is a special interest, I'm awfully glad to be one."The woman's remark came in response to Mrs. Feinstein's recounting to a small group of firestorm victims how she had pushed through legislation in 1993 that enabled them to overcome bureaucratic roadblocks.

Thompson's kitchen wall, according to actor John Cusack, who attended a memorial service for the recently deceased gonzo journalist. American Idol has an unlikely fan -- the dyspeptic TV personality Larry David, according to his wife, Laurie.

SACRAMENTO, Calif. - There were five gubernatorial candidates in that free-wheeling debate here the other night in California's recall election, but the one who was most on trial was the most famous of them - movie actor Arnold "The Terminator" Schwarzenegger, running as a Republican. He didn't terminate anyone. As an entertainer, he more than held his own, with snappy retorts and a physical presence that was to be expected from a polished performer of the silver screen. But as a player on the political stage, his boilerplate answers gave voters little with which to assess his talents for running the nation's largest state.
