Even before Steve Jobs concludes one of his legendary keynotes, the grousing begins. This time has been no different. Too many Apple fans get caught up in the pre-keynote hype, rumors and wish lists that build expectations for extremely cool but utterly unlikely wonder-toys. Disappointment is almost a given. People wanted a 3G iPhone. They didn't get it. People wanted a WiMax-enabled touch-screen mini-laptop. They got only the MacBook Air. People wanted to be blown away by another game-changing product such as last year's iPhone.

One by one, the sacred cows hit the ground, adroitly tipped over by the best-selling author Steve Berry in his 13th historical novel, "The Lincoln Myth. " Berry, 59, is a Florida-based former attorney and county commissioner turned author whose previous 12 books have sold more than 17 million copies in 51 countries. The sales are a tribute to the author's skill at folding his research into little-known historical puzzles inside murder mysteries starring Cotton Malone, a retired U.S. Justice Department operative turned book-seller.

When the Columbia Business Exchange went looking for a keynote speaker for its "State of Columbia Address," it got turned down twice. First, the Rouse Co. said no. Then, General Growth Properties, which bought Rouse in November, declined. "I don't blame them," said David Hepple, president of the business group. "There was a lot of controversy about the sale and the different developments going on right now. So they declined." And that is how Lt. Gov. Michael S. Steele came to the Columbia Hilton yesterday and became the first person in recent memory not connected to the planned community to give the keynote address.

— Maryland Gov. Martin O'Malley took center stage before a convention of New Hampshire Democrats Saturday, rallying the faithful in a state important to his party's hopes to hold the White House in November — and to his own future should he run for president. The 22-minute keynote address to the New Hampshire Democratic Party marked O'Malley's debut as the main attraction at an event in this first-in-the-nation primary state. The visit was part of a four-state tour kicking off what looks to be a summer packed with political travel for the 49-year-old governor.

- Gov. Martin O'Malley took the stage Saturday at a high school in this early presidential primary state, telling an auditorium of South Carolina Democrats that his principles worked in Maryland - and they'd work elsewhere. "We're investing more to improve public education, to hold down college tuition, to spur innovation and job creation," O'Malley said to a crowd of 150 party faithful. But he also said Maryland has "cut state spending big time," casting himself as a pragmatist who makes tough choices.

NEW YORK - If convention keynote addresses are meant to set the political pot to boil, Georgia Sen. Zell Miller's fiery old-time denunciation of his fellow Democratic senator, John Kerry, certainly accomplished that goal. "I think Zell Miller spoke for himself last night and I think he turned America off last night," said Terry McAuliffe, the national Democratic Party chairman. "I think he frightened even the Republican base." McAuliffe and other party leaders said the keynote was reminiscent of a divisive speech given by Patrick J. Buchanan to the Republican convention in Houston in 1992, when the combative tone of the event was later judged a factor in the defeat of President George Bush.

As a small-business owner on Clay Street, the rough-and-tumble Annapolis community where he grew up, Michael McFarland was keenly aware of the need for mentors for the neighborhood's youth. In the early 1970s, when he owned a laundromat there, he began an athletic club that allowed hundreds of low-income kids from the area to compete in organized sports like basketball and flag football. As a coach, McFarland, nicknamed "Little Buck" for his short stature, not only taught sportsmanship; he exalted the importance of education.
