Westminster Kennel Club Dog Show 8 p.m. [USA] This is the first day of the competition, so that means it's time for pinschers and cockers to report. And that joke, ladies and gentlemen, is brought to you by my colleague Andy Knobel, so blame him.

It's end of a golden era, ladies and gentlemen. Attempt to contain your grief over this news. Baltimore's own Olympic legend, Michael Phelps, has parted ways with longtime girlfriend Nicole Johnson, the New York Post reports . Phelps and Johnson, a former Miss California, had dated off an on over a span of several years. Johnson had gone with Phelps to July's FINA world championships in Shanghai, according to the Post. Phelps didn't make the same kind of waves (terrible pun intended)

There are serious news reports, and then there are serious news reports.  Thankfully, a recent performance of the KTLA Morning News team falls into the latter category. Tackling the important issue of the Shake Weight, the Los Angeles journalists were reduced to, well, what inevitably happens to everyone when discussing this latest fitness craze: Making anatomy jokes.  Some money quotes:  • "I've got a small, white one. Does that make a difference?"  • "I don't think it's the size of it. It's actually the technique.

NBA Trail Blazers@Heat 7 p.m. [ESPN] Honestly, my best recommendation is Friday Night Lights, but if you insist on nonfiction athletics and have a certain morbid curiosity about the train wreck known as the Miami Heat (now an incredible 8-29), you can tune in for a recovering Shaq (hip) and D-Wade against a fairly decent Portland lineup. Step right up, ladies and gentlemen, and witness the disintegration of a once-vibrant team just a season and a half removed from an NBA championship.

I don't know about you, but when I think of exploratory committees I get excited.  That's why I'm glad Minnesota Republican Tim Pawlenty thinks as I do. When you're announcing that you're creating a committee to potentially explore the possibility of potentially running for president, that possible announcement should be accompanied with triumphant, celestial music, shaky action movie-inspired camera work, thunderous applause, and, of course, a...

For an afternoon, Kathleen M. Walker's classroom was transformed into the Bakerfield Cafe in Scotland. And 25 third-graders turned into young ladies and gentlemen.Students, many of them wearing their Sunday best, greeted their parents at the door, took their coats and and escorted them to seats. After inquiring solicitously about their parents' health, the 8- and 9-year-olds served their parents tea and shortbread cookies."If you lived in Scotland, things would be different from living in Aberdeen," Chris Smoot, 8, explained to his mother Donna.

IF YOU walk into the parking lot on the north side of Fayette Street just east of Eutaw, and then walk through what appears to be an alley, you will be standing on the very spot where Alfred Lunt played opposite Lynn Fontanne in "Elizabeth the Queen."It was here, too, where Tallulah Bankhead did "The Skin of Our Teeth" and Humphrey Bogart and Judith Anderson did "Saturday's Children" -- to say nothing of Julie Harris, Rosalind Russell, Melvyn Douglas and many others.Hallowed ground.This very special piece of real estate is as close as Glimpses can find to where the stage of Ford's Theater used to be before that "Temple of Drama" (as it was called in earlier days)

AS THANKSGIVING approaches, I am reminded of what is wrong with our country today: Fewer pies are being baked in America's kitchens.A few years ago at a Washington gathering that I would describe as a "deep background lunch," I was handed a sheet of paper stating that the number of pies baked from scratch fell 48 percent from 1979 to 1989. This statistic came from researchers for Crisco. They keep track of such things because shortening is an essential ingredient in flaky pie crust.It was grim news, because a homemade pie with a flaky crust is one of life's great joys.

The rain is coming down in sheets and the sky over Glen Burnie is the color of boiled cabbage, but you don't care.A hundred yards up Ritchie Highway, a late-model Honda Civic has hydroplaned into a Ford Taurus and the Taurus looks like it might be in the body shop until the Al Gore presidency, but you don't care about that, either. In fact, you don't care much about anything right now, because you're inside the vast, quiet, cocoon-like elegance of the La-Z-Boy Furniture Gallery, your body melted into a recliner so comfortable it may take a cattle prod to get you out of this baby.

Oh, to be a fly on the wall when the new Orioles owners meet for the first time with the club's top officials.It might go something like this:PETE ANGELOS: I'm delighted to welcome you gentlemen -- er, excuse me, Pam, ladies and gentlemen -- to this meeting.I see we're a little short of chairs. Could somebody get a couple extra chairs? Thank you. Just unfold 'em and put 'em right there in the back of the room. That's it.There are many, many issues we need to discuss -- what's that? Some late arrivals?

TWO-HEADED GIANT FOUND IN FELLS POINT!No way, you say. Preposterous. Unbelievable, improbable, implausible, inconceivable, infeasible, in fact, down right impossible, you say.OK, then -- what, or who, is that in the display case of the Antique Man in the 1700 block of Fleet Street?Robert Gerber, 53, shoulder-length hair gone to white, says it is Kap-Dwa (homo gigantis), slain warrior of ancient time. Odysseus and Aeneas might have come across the 12-foot giant, had their travels gone by way of Patagonia in the far reaches of South America.
