Every performance by jazz singer Rene Marie is an act of validation. Sixteen years ago, she faced an ultimatum from her then-husband - abandon music or get out. She chose the latter course, and went on to enjoy an international career. Her musical journey continues as Marie brings her Eartha Kitt tribute to Creative Alliance this weekend. Given her self-confidence and dynamic personality, Marie is a natural to delve into the legacy of the sexy, indelible Kitt. Although Marie can purr seductively through a song, she doesn't try to imitate Kitt.

She said that none of that seemed to matter to the manager of the Chi-Chi's restaurant in Clinton."He said, 'I can't use you,' " recalled Miller, 43, a soft-spoken mother of four who has waited tables for years.

Regarding your recent article on unsolicited religious appeals, I have been repeatedly importuned by early-morning door-knocking from Jehovah's Witnesses peddling their brand of Christianity ( "Conversion campaign raises complaints among Jews, Aug. 19). Believe me, I understand Jewish sensibilities on this point. In his excellent survey of anti-Semitism past and present, author Robert S. Wistrich takes note of the presence in modern-day Europe of laws against incitement of ethnic and religious animosity.

It was midafternoon, and Shayna Samero was on her way home from work Nov. 17, 2008, idling in traffic on North Avenue near the Eastside District Courthouse in Baltimore, when she saw what looked like a couple of teenagers messing around on the street, one chasing the other. Within seconds, she realized it was a woman under attack. "She was trying to get away, she was trying to run away," Samero testified Wednesday during an emotional morning in the trial of Cleaven L. Williams Jr., who is charged with murder in the fatal stabbing of his wife, Veronica Williams.

The trial of Cleaven L. Williams Jr., who is charged with murder in his wife's stabbing death, opened Tuesday with the defense and prosecution agreeing on one thing: He did it. Williams was shot twice by an officer Nov. 17, 2008, while sitting on top of the bloodied body of Veronica Williams, his wife of nearly 10 years and the pregnant mother of their three young children. The dispute is not about his guilt, but whether he planned the fatal attack or if it was a spontaneous, irrational act. "There are different degrees of homicide," his defense attorney, Melissa Phinn, told the jury.
