If confirming evidence of the ruinous power of opiate addiction was needed, we now have the wasted life of the genius actor Philip Seymour Hoffman - George Willis Jr. in "Scent of a Woman," Phil Parma in "Magnolia," Art Howe in "Moneyball," and a superb Willy Loman in "Death of a Salesman" on Broadway less than two years ago. Hoffman was accomplished and respected, hailed as the greatest actor of his generation, and he presumably had wealth....

Opening night at Horseshoe Casino Baltimore went off without a major hitch despite larger-than-expected crowds, long lines and some early jitters, casino and city officials said Wednesday. About 15,000 people visited the casino Tuesday night, said general manager Chad Barnhill. Officials had only expected about 10,000, and lines stretched around the building from well before the casino's 9 p.m. opening until well after. "I think it's pent-up demand," Barnhill said. "We had everybody in the doors shortly after midnight.

The Ravens continue to show interest in Casey Matthews , talking to the Oregon inside linebacker at the NFL Scouting Combine after meeting with him at last month's Senior Bowl. Matthews is considered a third- or fourth-round prospect who has drawn increased attention because his father, Clay Matthews Jr. , played 19 years in the NFL and his brother, Clay Matthews III , was the runner-up this year for NFL defensive player of the year. "Friends will ask me, 'Do you feel pressure?

Erin Sharp arrived at Baltimore-Washington International Thurgood Marshall Airport a little less than two hours before her 9:40 a.m. flight to San Diego on Sunday, timed so that her 11-month-old son would zonk out on the plane and they would arrive home with the afternoon to spare. Instead, Sharp wouldn't leave the Anne Arundel County airport for another nine hours, she said, after an enormous ticketing line for Southwest Airlines caused her and other passengers to miss their flights and the airline couldn't immediately get her onto another.

The Ravens don't pick a defensive coordinator. They anoint one. The man who gets to run their defense is already well versed with its tradition, is an advocate of its core principles and is eminently familiar with its personalities. For Chuck Pagano, the mantle was passed last Jan. 18, in the wake of a disquieting playoff loss in Pittsburgh after a season in which that defense was besieged — relatively speaking — with problems defending the pass. No sooner had coordinator Greg Mattison opted for a return to the University of Michigan than Pagano was tapped to replace him. Eight months and one lockout later, the back end of the Ravens' defense might be its strength.

But no-o-o-o-o-o: it's a big American musical about England, and it'll star Tommy Tune.The show's called "Busker Alley," a two-acter about buskers -- strolling entertainers."Busker Alley" is inspired by the 1938 movie "St. Martin's Lane," which starred Charles Laughton and Vivien Leigh. The show's music and lyrics are by Richard M. and Robert B. Sherman, who won Academy Awards for the music for "Mary Poppins."

WASHINGTON -- We come from a long line of dead people. Malachy McCourt says this at the end of "A Couple of Blaguards," the two-man stage show based on his memoir and his famous brother Frank's. It's supposed to be about the Irish experience, but of course there are pieces of every ethnic minority arriving in America, reaching out for an identity and wondering: Whose identity, exactly? My own, and my people's, or something off the new-model assembly line?"I want to assimilate," McCourt says shortly after arriving in New York from Limerick, Ireland.

Donald Davis comes from a long line of tall-tale tellers. He grew up in the Southern Appalachian Mountains of North Carolina in the 1950s, absorbing stories and the art of telling them from his grandmother, his Uncle Frank and the area's rich tradition of oral allegories. And for the last 20 years, he's been traveling the country sharing what he learned. Davis draws his audiences in by presenting stories of universal slices of life - getting braces and its accompanying awkward emotions, the frustrations and elations of family trips, or simply the goings-on of small towns in America.

ONCE again the nation prepares to swear in a new president It's called the "Changing of the Guard," and it is Washington's most stirring ceremony. When one regime leaves and another takes its place the old guard lines up to march out the gate, and the fresh troops march in to the beat of a different drummer.I have seen it many times and it always moves me.I have watched hardened veterans of an administration stumble out in the street handing out their resumes to anyone who would take them.

One of the principal security gates at BWI Thurgood Marshall Airport is being closed in the mornings because of congestion around the adjacent Southwest Airlines ticketing counters, according to airport, airline and Transportation Security Administration officials. The shift started last week after officials found lines at the ticketing counters were blurring into lines at the security gate for Concourse B, particularly during busy morning hours. "It has to do with the safety and commingling of passengers," said TSA spokesman Ross Feinstein, who said entering and exiting through the gate had become a concern.

In its eighth year, Empty Bowls has become not only a major fundraiser for one of Baltimore's oldest and busiest charities but a popular event for which people are willing to get in line early. Half an hour before doors opened Saturday at the Maryland State Fairgrounds, more than 200 ticket-holders waited eagerly for the first seating of soups from some of the region's best restaurants. "People who've been here before know to come early," said John Schiavone, executive director of St. Vincent de Paul of Baltimore, the host and beneficiary of an event that has grown so much since 2007 that organizers had to split it into lunch and dinner sessions.

It's gotten to be that one of the hallmarks of the State of the Union address is its Seinfeldian nature. Every year it seems that the speech becomes a speech about nothing, as presidents throw out all sorts of grandiose ideas, policies and program proposals that never amount to a hill of beans, making me personally wish we could return to the pre-Wilsonian days of a written message. Just last year President Barack Obama outlined seven major policy initiatives that never even got off the ground, while the rest of his proposals have a very limited track record of success . Before the president took to the podium last night, the biggest story was about the unilateral implementation of a $10.10 minimum wage for employees working under federal contracts.

The Thanksgiving meal waiting inside was warm and rich, but the scores of people standing in line outside at the Virginia S. Baker Recreation Center on Thursday morning looked somber as the cold wind whipped past them. But just after 10 a.m., a tiny woman in a leopard-print jacket and purple and black leotard showed up and began building an aerial rig resembling a giant swing set rising 22 feet into the sky in nearby Patterson Park. A group of friends — some buskers, some clowns, also dressed frivolously in tutus or cowboy vests — took to stilts or grabbed a hula hoop and began twirling.

During recent election cycles, the turnout of early voters at Carroll County's only early-voting polling place, the Westminster Senior Activities Center on Stoner Avenue, was at times so light that the campaign volunteers and poll workers easily outnumbered voters. Not so this time around. At around 11 a.m., on Oct. 31, the parking lot at the center was nearly full, and spaces were at such a premium that motorists entering often had to wait for someone else to leave to get a space.

Is there any bar or nightclub in Baltimore worth a $20 cover charge? If so - and I'm not convinced there is - it certainly was not Paparazzi Nightclub on a recent Friday night. The dance club that replaced the concert venue Sonar in February describes itself on its website as "one of the top destinations to visit in Baltimore nightlife. " It was only a destination if someone were in search of a test of patience. Paparazzi is split into two rooms, just like Sonar . On this night, the smaller area held a "Ladies Night" hosted by 92Q's Konan.

Frustrated travelers reported long lines at Baltimore-Washington International Thurgood Marshall Airport on Friday morning, as crowds jammed into terminals on their way out of town as local schools prepared to let out for spring break. The delays followed the closure Friday morning of one of BWI Marshall Airport's best-kept secrets in swift security navigation: the temporary security checkpoint on the airport's lower level - used by savvy travelers to avoid the crush at the upper level security lines for Concourses A and B. The checkpoint was removed to make way for continued construction of a nine-lane checkpoint, though because of its relative obscurity, it's unclear whether its closure impacted lines.
