Belvedere Square, with its hip artisanal vendors, has earned its stripes as a food-lovers' destination. The area just to its south, now home to a handful of casual, capable eateries, is poised to piggyback on that success. The newest of these restaurants is Flight American Fusion Restaurant & Bar. Opened in late August, Flight is a casual spot with an interesting menu, including a wide variety of vegetarian dishes and flavors inspired by the many different cuisines found in America.

It's your fault Justin Bieber is a jerk. That's the contention of attorney Roy Black, who is defending the 20-year-old singer on a DUI charge stemming from a Jan. 23 arrest in Miami Beach. Mr. Black spoke to reporters this month as video of Mr. Bieber's deposition in the case of an alleged assault by one of his bodyguards -- you can't keep this young man's legal woes straight without a scorecard -- was making the rounds on the Internet. It was not a pretty picture. Mr. Bieber comes across as a twerp so snotty and insolent even Mother Teresa would want to smack him. It's been suggested that opposing counsel baited Mr. Bieber by asking provocative questions unrelated to the matter at hand, such as his on-and-off relationship with Selena Gomez.

Reporter John Fritze's recent article showed what hateful hypocrites the Carroll Commissioners, Del. Justin Ready and Rep. Andy Harris really are ( "Carroll Co. officials push back on shelter for immigrant children," July 11). They are joined by the local tea party group, which suggested in an email blast to its members that the children be met by an armed militia if they are sent to Westminster. The Carroll Commissioners are quite fond of publicly praying for God's guidance at their meetings.

I put together some readers' gripes after my colleague Bob Greene did a series of heartwarming columns on what made people happy. I believe in journalistic balance.Let the venom flow:The guy at the Y who shoves the community hair dryer between his toes. Yuck.I live in absolute Jerk Heaven, Jacksonville, Fla. -- home of world-class ignorance and pettiness, where they gun you down on the freeway. A land of Bible-thumping, bungee-jumping and homeboy-humping, where 10th-graders think Eisenhower wrote the Gettysburg Address, and pedestrians think "Don't Walk" is an advertisement for the bus company.

NEW YORK -- Bernhard Goetz's lawyer told a Bronx jury that his client was "a jerk" and that "someone should punch him in the mouth" for uttering racist epithets.But he argued that Mr. Goetz's flawed character should not obscure that he was justified in shooting four teen-agers he thought were about to rob him on the subway a decade ago.The attorney, Darnay Hoffman, urged the jury to look beyond Mr. Goetz's words and try to understand his actions.During the trial to determine whether Mr. Goetz should pay $50 fTC million to Darrell Cabey, one of the four people he shot on the subway, evidence showed that the so-called subway gunman had referred to the attack as a public service.

RECENTLY, WHEN I was having a hamburger at an outdoor restaurant, two guys started up their Harley-Davidson motorcycles, parked maybe 25 feet from me.Naturally, being Harley guys, these were rebels -- lone wolves, guys who do it Their Way, guys who do not follow the crowd. You could tell because they were wearing the same jeans, jackets, boots, bandannas, sunglasses, belt buckles, tattoos and (presumably) underwear worn by roughly 28 million other lone-wolf Harley guys.And of course, once they got their engines started, they had to spend the equivalent of two college semesters just sitting there, revving their engines, which were so ear-bleedingly loud that I thought my hamburger was going to leap from my plate and skitter, terrified, back into the kitchen.

To Dawn Samuels, a native of western Jamaica, jerk chicken tastes like her island's unique mix of history and heat. The slow-smoking technique dates back hundreds of years and the unmistakable blend of spices, including hot peppers, ginger and allspice, is designed to make a person sweat. Jerk chicken is a quintessential eat-on-the-go food, especially in Jamaica. Perhaps 10 vendors, including Samuels' Baltimore restaurant, Caribbean Food Paradise, will be selling the dish this weekend at the Caribbean Carnival Festival in Druid Hill Park, said Elaine Simon, the festival's coordinator.

CLEVELAND - Astronomers said yesterday that they had determined the time in cosmic history when a mysterious force, "dark energy," began to wrench the universe apart. Some 5 billion years ago, said Adam Riess, an astronomer at the Space Telescope Science Institute in Baltimore, the universe experienced a "cosmic jerk." Before then, he said, the combined gravity of the galaxies and everything else in the cosmos was resisting the cosmic expansion, slowing it down. Since the jerk, though, the universe has been speeding up. The results were based on observations by a multinational team of astronomers using the Hubble Space Telescope to search out exploding stars known as Type 1a supernovae, reaching back in time three-quarters of the way to the big bang in which the universe was born.

Welcome to the second season of Morning Shootaround. We will follow the Terps throughout the 2013-14 season, but this year, we will provide a look ahead rather than looking back. We will try to analyze Maryland's strengths and weaknesses, as well as those of its upcoming opponent. We also hope to provide quotes and anecdotes from practices to give some idea of what Mark Turgeon and his team are doing. Here are a few things to watch as the Terps get ready to play at North Carolina on Tuesday night.

My wife thinks I'm incredibly rude because I never introduce her to anyone I'm talking to. She comes up, listens in, waits on the introduce-me square - and I know what she's waiting for, what they're both waiting for - but there's nothing I can do, and I always end up feeling like, and seeming like, a jerk. There is a syndrome where you can't remember names. Two percent of the population has it, and while my case may not be the as severe as some, I'm on the spectrum. Of course I have no idea of what the name of this syndrome is. But it's real.

Wings are the classic football appetizer. The usual flavor combination applied to wings is a buttery hot sauce and a salad dressing for dunking the wings. Nothing wrong with that. But if you want to take your tailgate to a new level, give these wings a try. The rich spicy heat from the habanero peppers along with the Jamaican jerk flavors of allspice, green onions, cinnamon, thyme and nutmeg really make these wings stand out. The nice thing about this recipe is that you can do most of the work the day before the game by placing your chicken in the marinade overnight and grilling it when you get to the stadium (or to your backyard grill)

President Barack Obama's unusually personal and frank recollection this past week of being greeted by the click of car door locks while crossing the street set off a "click" of recognition among blacks and whites alike. I know my own hand made that reflexive move for the door lock too many times before my mind considered the impact of my actions as a white woman on the feelings of a young black man. Once I made this connection, I stopped reaching for the locks. When traveling by foot, I now make an effort to catch the eyes of black men walking toward me to say, "Good morning," or "Good evening.

After 25 Preaknesses, Annette Thomas has her routine, and recipes, down pat. Thirty pounds of ribs, both pork and beef, marinated overnight in vinegar and soy sauce, then grilled in front of her house on Saturday. Fifty pounds of red-skin potatoes — "Never russets, oh no, no, no!" — boiled in her crab pots for dill whipped potato salad. "Half-and-half," or homemade sweet tea — not the bought tea, she explains — and lemonade to wash it down. For the hungry hordes heading into or out of Pimlico Race Course , sidewalk chefs like Thomas serve up a home-cooked alternative to the concessions inside.

At 9 in the morning, the smoke is already rising from the grill behind Carolyn's CafM-i in Ridgely's Delight. Chef Ras Doobie has arrived at the restaurant early to get his charcoal-and-wood fire just right. It's a daily, time-consuming ritual. But he wouldn't have it any other way. Doobie takes jerk chicken seriously. His leg-and-thigh quarters have marinated all night in his secret seasonings, a recipe handed down by his mother. Now, they must be cooked outdoors over a medium-hot, smoky fire - or else the result wouldn't be jerk chicken at all. "It's the traditional way," says the 43-year-old native Jamaican who has been cooking professionally for 25 years.

It took a trip to Jamaica for me to understand the fine points of jerked meats and the merits of plain fried fish.First the jerk. Jerk is barbecue with a difference. Long marination in a mixture of island-grown ingredients and slow roasting over a smoky pimento-wood fire produces meat that is crisp but juicy and intensely flavorful.Contributing to the unique taste of jerk pork, chicken, beef, goat and fish is a fiery paste rub made of onion, scallions, garlic, nutmeg, thyme, pimento and Scotch bonnet chili peppers.

When I got my reviewer's copy of Bill Walsh's new book, Yes I Could Care Less: How to Be a Language Snob Without Being a Jerk (St. Martin's Griffin, 256 pages, $14.99), the book fell open to this passage: "You're free to talk back to your usage guides.
