Much has been written on this page and elsewhere about what's wrong with baseball, from performance-enhancing drugs to the out-of-whack economics of the sport. Let us give equal attention to something that is right with the national pastime - Jerry Narron. Mr. Narron is manager of baseball's oldest franchise, the Cincinnati Reds, and on Wednesday night he did something every baseball fan with basic cable and a memory of Little League has been aching to do for years - he benched a star player for not hustling on a routine play.

The 1970s corruption investigation known as Abscam, celebrated in "American Hustle," one of the holiday season's hottest movies, had its roots in Baltimore. It was in Charm City that the FBI tested the sting-style operation that marked Abscam as a particularly theatrical and effective form of undercover investigation. Baltimore FBI agents later trained those who carried out the Abscam sting. Abscam famously featured FBI agents posing as Arab sheiks, along with an accomplished con artist (played by Christian Bale in "American Hustle")

Jeremy Baker may not have all the skills that other great Calvert Hall soccer players have had, but he more than makes up for that with hustle."When I was a sophomore, the only reason I made the [varsity] was my aggressiveness," Baker said. "I didn't need skills. We had [all-metro players] Brian Bugarin and J.J. [Kremer]. My role was to just get the ball and cross it."Since then, Baker's skills have improved, but it is his hustle and aggressiveness that have led second-ranked Calvert Hall (10-0-1)

"I guess it really started in 1961," Sonny Bono (Jay Underwood) says in voice-over at the start of "And the Beat Goes On: The Sonny and Cher Story" tonight on ABC."Roger Maris broke Babe Ruth's record that year. Chubby Checker was twisting at the Peppermint Lounge, and I was delivering meat."That's as much social history or context as we get in this screwy film about the mom-and-pop singing duo from the 1960s and '70s. And even this isn't factually correct. It was Joey Dee and the Starlighters who were twisting at the Peppermint Lounge in 1961.

But if it were up to G-Side, the city's of-the-moment rap duo of ST 2 Lettaz and Yung Clova, Huntsville would be hip-hop's next hub. ST compares his hometown to another significant location in rap history. "Huntsville is the 'Ville, man," ST says. "Everyone hustles here. It's Alabama's Harlem. Everyone has a job and a side hustle.

Common kept his cool last week — and his artistic faith. While controversy swirled around his appearance at the White House for a poetry reading, the rapper-actor was anchoring a movie in Baltimore that should quiet even those pundits who tried to paint him as a gangsta. With concentration and intensity, he was helping first-time writer-director Sheldon Candis and a superb ensemble flesh out a script that proves (among other things) that gangsterism doesn't pay. "LUV" — it stands for "Learning Uncle Vincent" — captures the turning point in the life of an 11-year-old boy named Woody (Michael Rainey Jr)

Any place that can shut me up, slow me down and get me to smell the roses wins a spot on my list of favorite places. When it also happens to serve a really great cup of coffee, I designate it a personal four-star restaurant. These places invariably display character that flavors every other trait and detail. Enter Red Canoe Bookstore and Cafe. 12:45 I am behind schedule with an early afternoon meeting looming and weighty work-related issues burdening my brain. Glancing around as we walk through a tiny dining room, my friend and I see no empty tables.

It's a familiar scene for members of the Johns Hopkins men's lacrosse team. At halftime and the conclusion of every game this season, after coach Dave Pietramala says what's weighing on his mind, he asks the same question. "Every time we come off the field for halftime or at the end of the game, the first thing Coach Petro asks before getting the stats is, 'Are we getting the ground balls? Are we winning the ground ball war?'" sophomore midfielder John Ranagan said. "… This year, it's been the one thing we've stressed.

I don't think they should display it (nude art). I think there's enough teen-agers and younger kids around there; it's not appropriate for them. At galleries, the pictures are fine. I don't agree with a lotof these things they're showing at New York galleries -- they're tasteless. It gets to the point where they're banned. You want to encourage families to attend (the festival). I don't think (the nude art) will keep them away, but once they're there, the parents may want to hustle their kids past them.

It was one of Daniel Gabriel Fahrenheit's most famous inventions, in 1714. But after nearly 300 years on the market, the still-common mercury thermometer now appears headed for extinction. While many Maryland residents probably still have them in their medicine cabinets, or on their walls, the retail sale of mercury thermometers has been banned in Maryland since 2002 because of mercury's hazards as a powerful neurotoxin. There are similar bans or restrictions in at least 17 other states, with more such legislation pending elsewhere, according to the Interstate Mercury Education and Reduction Clearinghouse.

Samuel was officially announced at 6:57 p.m., during pre-game introductions, and he flashed a smile when he was shown on the video board before presenting the lineup card at 7:01 p.m. While the reaction from the stands wasn't overwhelmingly vocal, several Orioles fans shared their opinion on the team's decision to replace Dave Trembley with Samuel before the homestand.
