Reporter Jill Rosen and I were stationed outside William Donald Schaefer's polling place in Fells Point well before 7 a.m., waiting with TV crews for his arrival when the polls opened. An hour and a half later, there was still no sign of one of Baltimore's most familiar politicians. We knew something was wrong. The obligatory early morning photo ops of candidates casting their vote are one of the few times you can be sure a politician will show up on time. Then we got word that Schaefer was at Iggy's restaurant in Little Italy for breakfast with his long-time friends and political allies.

Ingmar Bergman's "Faithless" is unusually smart and serious, well-made and well-acted, and engrossing almost despite itself. But there's a lie at the film's core, and it has nothing to do with the extramarital affair that is its subject. Instead, it grows out of a failure of vision, perhaps a result of the self-loathing Bergman hints at in his script. The two-and-a-half-hour film is virtually without a single moment of tenderness or playfulness; seldom has a love affair been rendered with so little joy. The characters - Marianne, the unfaithful wife; Markus, her husband and a world-famous conductor; and David, his best friend and Marianne's lover - are attractive and unlikable, and the connections between them are shallow at best.

As she wends her way each morning among the three garden plots at her home on Summer Solstice Farm, Nora Crist carefully discerns which fruits and vegetables are ready to be lovingly plucked from their soil beds and sold that day. It's an ability she's been cultivating since she was a 7-year-old girl working alongside her grandfather, the late Sen.

In an obscure corner of Gary, Ind., called Miller Beach, there's a beat-up little cottage that deserves a historical marker as a birthing place of feminism.There, amid the Indiana sand dunes, the existential philosopher Simone de Beauvoir had a love affair with novelist Nelson Algren. They were an unlikely pairing, one of literature's oddest odd couples.Algren was a hard-drinking chronicler of life's seamier side. His cultural milieu was Chicago's gin mills and back alleys. De Beauvoir was an intellectual star of Paris' left-bank cafes.

When is this newspaper going to end its love affair with Wegmans? If Patuxent Publishing is being paid for its front page Wegmans story and its up-to-the-minute updates on the anticipation for the grand opening, good. But don't dress it up as a news story. The lines between advertisement, opinions, and news are blurry. If Patuxent Publishing is not getting a chunk of the Wegmans annual marketing budget then you are missing out. How about running a free front page story on my family business, or my wife's interior design business, or my neighbor the architect?

Cast members from 1993's "A Bronx Tale" will reunite with Chazz Palminteri at Chazz: A Bronx Original on Monday night for a special fundraising happy hour. "A Bronx Tale" was the movie adaptation of Palminteri's one-man stage show of the same name. Almost 20 years later, Palminteri's love affair with his native borough would in part inspire the Inner Harbor restaurant that bears his name. Guests at Monday's happy hour will meet cast members from the movie, along with other Baltimore celebrities and sports figures who are helping the restaurant launch a new charitable fundraising campaign for the Cal Ripken, Sr. Foundation.

Sonny, a self-educated schoolteacher with a love of Shakespeare and Kafka, and his dutiful, lovely wife, Aila, are soberly dedicated to responsibility and self-improvement. They have two children, a vivacious daughter known by her childhood nickname of Baby (just as her father is known by his)

I grieve for the "new normal" of Erika Brannock and for her future ("For bombing victim, a 'new normal,'" June 19). And I grieve for the future of America if our "new normal" is a government relentlessly spying on law abiding citizens. Until this country decides to overhaul our immigration and visa system, all this surveillance and "meta data" will be useless. We have a love affair with the "huddled masses" and "wretched refuse" of the world so there will be more Erika Brannocks and others whose "new normal" will also be tragic.
