There was no easing into the first UFC event in Baltimore. Chris Beal jolted the sold-out crowd to attention with a flying-knee knockout of Patrick Williams in the second round of the night's first fight. Danny Castillo then flattened Charlie Brenneman with a punch to win the second fight of the card by knockout. In many places where the UFC holds its pay-per-views, the fans file in throughout the preliminary card. Not in Baltimore. Fight fans hungry to welcome mixed martial arts' biggest promotion had Baltimore Arena looking almost full by the opening bell.

If George Bush doesn't know better, Alan Greenspan should. Having the chairman of the Federal Reserve Board, who happens to be the arbiter of monetary policy, preside over a fiscal policy commission to review the pros and cons of a cut in the capital gains tax is just plain improper. It crosses over a sub-section of the separation of powers concept that is essential to good governance.Granted, the great divide between fiscal and monetary policy is not enshrined in the Constitution along with the separation of the executive, legislative and executive branches.

While free-agent wide receiver Steve Smith was in town visiting the Ravens, they rolled out the red carpet. He had a nice dinner, an evening on the town, and private meetings with general manager Ozzie Newsome, coach John Harbaugh and offensive coordinator Gary Kubiak. Apparently, Smith was impressed, as he signed with the Ravens and canceled visits or negotiations with the New England Patriots, Seattle Seahawks and San Diego Chargers. The Ravens are in Phase III of trying to rebuild a serious playoff contender, and Smith, despite being 34, has filled a major need.

NATIONAL AMNESIA seems to be the order of the day now that skyrocketing prices of gasoline have suddenly become a burning political issue in the presidential campaign. Twenty-three years ago, when the first major oil crisis was upon us, every politician within reach of a microphone was deploring a growing U.S. dependence on foreign suppliers and demanding energy conservation on a scale never seen before.Not so this time. President Clinton's response has been to release 12 million barrels from the strategic oil reserve -- a resource that was supposed to be used only in event of a real emergency.

A bus driver killed in a drive-by shooting this week had called police earlier to report loud music at a nearby home, according to the victim's mother, who believes her son was attacked in retribution. It was about 11:30 p.m. and Craig Ray's 6 a.m. shift driving a Maryland Transit Administration bus was looming. He asked a neighbor to turn the music down so he could get some sleep. When that didn't happen, he and his girlfriend decided to call police, according to his mother, Deborah Ray. As he waited near the door of his girlfriend's home early Monday in the 2400 block of Wilgrey Court, a block of adjoining apartments in southern Baltimore's Westport neighborhood, a car drove up, his mother said.

A proposal to use preserved agricultural land for mulching and compostingĀ  at first glance appears not unreasonable. Until you hear the details. These details include large, loud diesel trucksĀ  coming down rural residential roads every few minutes from dawn until dusk, dumping loads of debris with the noise from their clanging metal gates echoing through the countryside. These details also include the continual operation of large, loud diesel equipment on site to process these dumped loads.

As accidents go, few of recent memory have grabbed the region's attention like Tuesday's collision and explosion involving a CSX freight train and a trash truck in Rosedale. If Baltimoreans weren't close enough to hear the tooth-rattling blast, they likely noticed the giant plume of dark smoke that rose from the scene and lasted for hours. Yet, as severe as the crash and derailment were - and considering the potential risk of toxic chemicals that might have been on that train - the outcome was not nearly as bad as feared.

TWO hours after being cheered for signing the most lucrative baseball contract in history, Cal Ripken Jr. was booed -- loudly -- after he grounded out in a double play. Six-million-dollar men are not permitted to do ordinary things.This is the Law of Heightened Expectations that dogs all of baseball's multi-millionaires. It got so bad for Mets outfielder Bobby Bonilla, holder of what is now baseball's second fattest contract, that he now wears ear plugs at home games, the better to be spared the slings and arrows of unsympathetic New Yorkers.

It is very big. It is very thirsty. It is known as the Christmas tree from a place that rhymes with "bell." It is standing in the living room blocking any light that attempts to come in the windows.It took five hours, much grunting and two saws to get it there. En route, it almost took out a light fixture, a wall hanging and a marriage. This tale of fetching the family Christmas tree might sound familiar. That is because our family, like many others, annually succumbs to the urge to cut down our Christmas tree.

It was not our intention, but on a recent Friday night at the quickly popular Ale House Columbia, our table of four really tested the patience of the server. As Top 40 blared overhead, our server leaned in and asked for drink orders. She was knowledgeable about the wide selection of beer (including the many types of house brand Oliver Breweries), and offered what I heard as a beer "sampler. " After choosing four beers, it was the next person's turn. "I'll have whatever he's having," the friend said.

Hundreds of Baltimore Orioles fans rallied in front of City Hall on Wednesday, hoping their joyful noise would reach the team preparing to take on the Yankees in New York City in the third game of the American League Division Series. "We're sending a message up [Interstate] 95 to let our players know we are behind them all the way," said Mayor Stephanie Rawlings-Blake, who co-hosted the midmorning gathering with the Oriole Bird mascot. "We have your back. " The crowd, awash in a sea of orange shirts and black caps, paid tribute to Orioles past and present.
