It's a story that simply won't go away. It's an upper-class soap opera, and even after the passage of 75 years it still packs a sentimental punch and draws a willing audience into the glittering world of the British aristocracy. It is the saga of England's Edward VIII (he reigned for less than a year and was never crowned), who found it simply impossible to continue with his royal responsibilities without the love of an ambitious commoner from Baltimore, Wallis Warfield Simpson, the Belle of Biddle Street, who was determined to bag a royal and crash her way into the upper strata of British society.

I'M CERTAIN that by now you have noticed the return of an obsession that grips our country each year. Yes, it's award season. The beginning of each year brings with it a nearly compulsive desire to sit in front of a television and watch celebrities deliver rambling examples of public address while holding gold-plated figurines. The sheer number of awards organizations and broadcasts provides evidence of their popularity (at least among television networks and audiences). What is behind this surge in popularity?

If the Orioles weren't already convinced that they needed to make some trades and put a jolt into their underachieving club, last night's game against the Braves at Camden Yards should have convinced them. The backdrop couldn't have been much more inviting - the sold-out opener of a three-game series against the National League's premier team, with Greg Maddux facing Mike Mussina in a matchup of ace pitchers who usually work the All-Star Game. A game doesn't get much better than that, especially with a John Rocker sighting and a Bobby Bonilla "homecoming" as icing on the cake, giving the knucklehead quotient something to hoot about.

BOSTON -- It may be that every generation gets the Thomas Jefferson it deserves. The Jefferson of my childhood was the face on the nickel and Mount Rushmore, the signature on the Declaration of Independence. The Jefferson of today is one of DNA tests, sex, scandal, hypocrisy, the Jefferson between the William and the Clinton. At last, scientists with DNA tests have proved that the third president of the United States had an "improper relationship" with Sally Hemings -- as if the relationship of master and slave were not improper enough.

All the strong qualities that Art Modell brought to the Baltimore Ravens have surfaced. Modell, 87, died Thursday morning of natural causes at Johns Hopkins Hospital , and if the Ravens weren't practicing Friday, it would have been hard to tell that they have a game Monday against the Cincinnati Bengals. It's a somber but celebratory mood over at The Castle. It's sad because a giant of a man is gone, but also a time to share Modell stories. Almost everybody has one. It's one of the main reasons the Modell family and the Ravens agreed to hold a silent viewing and memorial at M & T Bank Stadium on Saturday.

The weekly visit to the gas pump is starting to bite, and bite hard. The fill-up that drivers shrugged off at $25 is suddenly putting a real dent in family budgets at $50 or more. So, is the pain of $2.70 a gallon enough to end America's love affair with gas-guzzling sport utility vehicles? Not quite yet, industry analysts say. Buyers are beginning to put fuel efficiency higher among their priorities for their next car - but there's no SUV divorce in sight. "It's not accurate to say SUVs are no longer popular, or are not being sold because of their fuel economy," said Brian Chee, an analyst with Autobytel, one of the most popular Web sites for new car buyers.
