This has been a heady year for the Jews of rock 'n' roll. After three fans announced their intention to launch a Web site called the Jewish Rock & Roll Hall of Fame, the already well-established Rock and Roll Hall of Fame in Cleveland sued for trademark infringement. Suddenly, a bevy of world-class lawyers was fighting over ... the right to tell the stories of Gene Simmons, Michael Bolton and four-fifths of the J. Geils Band. Then, a few weeks ago, the legal clouds lifted sufficiently to allow the three fans -- New Yorker writer Jeffrey Goldberg, Washington Post reporter David Segal and radio executive Allen Goldberg (no relation to Jeffrey)

An Eastern Shore teacher was put on leave and taken for medical evaluation after authorities grew concerned about his writings - including a novel about a school shooting and a letter with "suicidal undertones" - and a model he constructed at his home of a school building. But with authorities initially supplying few details, the case of 24-year-old Patrick Wayne McLaw blew up online. Commentators from across the political spectrum worried that his rights were being trampled by an overreaching government that was policing the teacher's thoughts rather than his actions.

Notes Maryland history: For readers curious about the history of the state where they live, there's a wonderful book, published several years ago, that is absolutely worth a second look. Maryland, A Middle Temperament: 1634-1980 by Robert Brugger won rave reviews when it was published in 1996. It's expensive for a paperback -- $25.95 -- but it's extraordinarily readable. "The most comprehensive and readable history of the Free State ever published. It's absolutely the only account I've ever seen that makes almost all our state history seem important or entertaining or both.

I thought I had said all I was going to say about Fareed Zakaria's plagiarism Friday night when I wrote about how wrong it was to steal the words and ideas of another -- and how deadly for a public intellectual. Read here what I said about Zakaria's actions shredding any sense of intellectual authority I once thought he had. But then, came the lame defenses from some other people in the media the last two days -- defenses that only underlined in my mind what I said about the deeply confused and debased state of journalism today.

Herman Cain has made a lot of waves in the GOP race for the White House lately. He's gone from a virtual unknown with a record of losing elections to one of the top three or four candidates in the race, largely on the strength of his performance at the first GOP debate. (I do not share this view of Cain's performance, but many Republican voters apparently disagree with me.)  Even though Cain has impressed many, he often shows his ignorance on important issues, such as having no plan for Afghanistan, dabbling in birtherism, not understanding the "Right of Return" for Palestinians, and, now, claiming President Barack Obama was "raised in Kenya.

— Tim Donaghy says he doesn't bet on basketball anymore. But basketball gambling is what pays his bills these days. Like a recovering alcoholic tending bar for his old drinking buddies, the ex-NBA referee has been breaking down game tape and analyzing point spreads for a shady sports handicapper in Allentown, Pa., known as "Danny B," who uses the information to sell gambling tips to his clients. "Meet the man who generated millions of dollars betting on basketball, as seen on '60 Minutes' and documented by the NBA and FBI," Danny B.'s website, sportsconnectionwins.com, says of Donaghy.

Chemical weapons are evil, but you could also say they're a curse. They have a talismanic power to bend and distort U.S. foreign policy. You can ask George W. Bush or Barack Obama. In 2003, then-Deputy Defense Secretary Paul Wolfowitz gave a lengthy interview to Vanity Fair that caused a huge uproar, largely because the magazine shamefully distorted what he was trying to say. Mr. Wolfowitz explained that within the Bush administration there were a lot of arguments for why we should invade Iraq.

Hillary Clinton's tactical retreat in her soft apology and meet-up with President Obama at Martha's Vineyard, after her ill-timed criticism of his "failure" in aiding Syrian refugees, indicates she may not be quite ready to put her best foot forward for the 2016 presidential race. Her remark in her interview with The Atlantic magazine, otherwise fulsome in praise of him, came at a time when Mr. Obama is struggling with a full plate of foreign policy woes. Inadvertently or not, it seemed politically self-serving, as she seems bent on shoring up her own acceptance with the more liberal elements in her own party.
