For the fifth-grade boys of Cub Scout Den 2, Pack 737 at the Norwood School in Bethesda, an overnight stay at the National Aquarium was, as their den leader Nanci Gosnell put it, "too cool to pass up." The 10 children arrived at the Inner Harbor attraction Friday afternoon, dined on lasagna and brownies, walked across the top of the shark tank, toured the rain forest exhibit after the aquarium had closed for the night, and camped out in sleeping bags next to the dolphins. But when they left Saturday morning to head home in two Cadillac Escalades parked spaces apart at the Landmark garage on Gay Street, the chaperons and children discovered that someone had broken out both vehicles' windows, ransacked the interiors and stolen an iPod and a GPS device.

Democratic Rep. Elijah Cummings accused Republicans of deliberately trying to make economic conditions worse for their own political gain at a Democratic Labor Day picnic Monday, as political rhetoric among Democrats heats up with Election Day's approach. Cummings, who represents most of western Howard County and Ellicott City, made a long, impassioned speech at the annual picnic at Cedar Lane Park, which also drew retired U.S. Sen. Paul Sarbanes, who accompanied his son, Rep. John Sarbanes (who represents portions of the eastern county)

A passionate, cheering, standing-room-only crowd of more than 260 people gathered in Harper's Choice on Tuesday night at a primary candidates forum, putting the simmering differences among West Columbia Democrats into sharp relief. Partisans at the event at Kahler Hall seemed to compete to be the loudest as District 4 County Councilwoman Mary Kay Sigaty and Alan Klein debated, along with veteran Del. Elizabeth Bobo and John Bailey, her challenger in District 12b. The fault line, as usual, was the view of the 30-year downtown Columbia redevelopment plan.

Her one-woman show, ''The Search for Signs of Intelligent Life in the Universe,'' which she did on the stage, has now been put to film, one that is now showing at the Senator.Tomlin makes you work. Her comedy is more fey than obvious. You do have to listen, but if you do, the pleasure is immeasurable.As she did on stage, Tomlin plays a variety of characters, a rebellious teen-ager, a bag lady, a '60s woman, a married woman, a mother, a divorced woman and a team of hookers, Brandy and Tina.

SOUTH WILLIAMSPORT, Pa. - Fifty years ago, the team was leaving the field when a few muffled murmurs in the stands turned into a deafening chant. "Let them play!" "Let them play!" The chant still resonates in the hearts and minds of the 1955 Cannon Street All-Stars today and brings that moment to life. It brings them back to a time when they would have given anything to play in the Little League World Series, but weren't given the chance because of the color of their skin. Six of the 14 Cannon Street Little Leaguers returned to the Little League World Series last week to be honored in a ceremony before Maitland, Fla., defeated Davenport, Iowa.

Matt Farrragut of Harper's Choice likes his county councilwoman, Mary Kay Sigaty, and his state delegate, Elizabeth Bobo, both of whom are running for re-election in Howard County's only two Democratic primaries, in districts that overlap across much of West Columbia. But Sigaty and Bobo disagree on one of the biggest issues in the area: the 30-year downtown Columbia redevelopment plan. Farrragut, 29, declined to discuss it. "I don't want to get into the downtown," Farragut, a professional landscaper and son of former County Councilman Paul Farragut, said after a fond greeting and chat with Sigaty as she knocked on doors in Hickory Ridge on a recent Saturday.

Columbia's oldest and most active Democratic Club drew a standing-room-only hallway-packed crowd of candidates — from Reps. Elijah Cummings and John Sarbanes to a raft of courthouse hopefuls and nonpartisan school board candidates — and their supporters at the Jeffers Hill Community Center.

The city is different after the sun sets. Edgier. More eclectic. More energized. More youthful. More dangerous. Recent violence is either out of control, as some residents and visitors suggest, or it's an exaggerated, isolated byproduct of a vibrant after-hours social scene that takes over neighborhoods north of the Inner Harbor as most people are climbing into bed. City Councilman William H. Cole IV spends many weekend nights cruising through his...
