While gathering reactions from former Orioles players on the death of Paul Blair, Orioles Hall of Famer Jim Palmer shared an interesting story with me. Palmer was quick to say how much Blair, who died Thursday at the age of 69, deserved a great deal of credit for the Orioles' success during the 1960s and '70s. He was especially important to Palmer, who said he wouldn't have been a Hall of Famer and wouldn't have won three Cy Young Awards without Blair patrolling center field.

NEW YORK-Less than a week after the dramatic introduction of his spring and summer haute couture collection in Paris, Yves Saint Laurent sent his pre-fall ready-to-wear clothes to New York. The show was workmanlike, not grand. Retailers sat at tables flanked by their assistants with lists of style numbers and prices in front of them.Instead of having the grand runway at the Hotel Intercontinental decorated with floral displays worthy of Versailles, the models slipped into their dresses behind some screens in the back of the company's Fifth Avenue offices.

AUGUSTA, Ga. -- Can a relatively short hitter win the Masters?It has been done before, most recently by Bernard Langer in 1994 and Ben Crenshaw in 1995. It will be done again, with reigning British Open champion Justin Leonard this year's leading candidate.Told yesterday that he has disproved the theory that players need length to win on the PGA Tour, Leonard said, "I wasn't aware there's a theory that length is everything. It's a great asset. It's a bigger asset on some courses. But if that was true, I probably wouldn't be here sitting and talking to you."

Sandy Apgar, an erstwhile pretender to being a public servant during the Clinton era, enthusiastically recommends that Maryland fall into the public-private partnership trap along with benighted states like Virginia ("The future of infrastructure," May 9). I'd like to know how inviting the pork farmers to engage in policy-making and priority-setting to increase the price of pork is going to benefit Mr. Apgar's "taxpayers. " I'm one of those taxpayers; the fat-cat corporations Mr. Apgar would woo with my money, not so much, according to the COST figures columnist Dan Rodricks cites in his column about CEO whining ("Complaining CEOs need to take a hike," May 9)

It's roughly a week before the Baltimore Rock Opera Society debuts its most ambitious production to date, and musical director John DeCampos is "freaked out" from the pressure. He is not alone. "People are getting stressed out. Sometimes people are getting short with each other," DeCampos, 30, said. "There's a general nervousness about the show. " It's hard to blame him. Founded in 2007, the BROS has established a reputation in the local arts scene as a do-it-themselves theater ensemble guided by metal, beer and over-the-top silliness.

Toward the end of the summer, I was up in Cape Cod and visited this adorable vintage bridal shop with my future mother-in-law and bridesmaid Lindsey. I found a great veil with three rows of satin edges that was both beautiful and inexpensive, so I bought it. It has been in my car, in a bag ever since. Two weekends ago, I went to Betsy Robinson to try on my dress for two out-of-town bridesmaids. I brought my trusty vintage veil only to discover that vintage equaled really, really yellow.
