You might suspect some strange jinx, or wonder if the third time's the harm. But the Baltimore Symphony Orchestra is taking a rash of high-profile artist cancellations in stride. On July 29 came the news that actor/singer and star of Showtime's "Homeland" Mandy Patinkin had withdrawn from his BSO SuperPops program scheduled for January "due to a schedule conflict. " He would be replaced by "Seinfeld" veteran Jason Alexander. On Sept. 15, three days before the opening night of the season, the orchestra announced that Baltimore's own Hilary Hahn would not be on hand to play Beethoven's Violin Concerto as planned because the popular artist needed "to recover fully from a muscle strain.

STANTON, Del. - Mike Pegram searched Delaware Park in vain for a can of beer. He found plenty of draft, but Pegram, the down-to-earth owner of champions, drinks his beer only from cans. He named his favorite horse after the cans known as "silver bullets." And yesterday, Silverbulletday, Pegram's two-time Eclipse-Award-winning filly, attempted to make history in the Delaware Handicap at Delaware Park. A crowd of 19,511 watched, the most to attend the races at Delaware Park since it reopened in 1984 after financial problems had shut it down.

The former Baltimore journalist Cheryl Lu-Lien Tan is a fashionista who doubtless looks pulled-together even when she's sick in bed, a woman with a taste for Narciso Rodriguez gowns and Manolo Blahnik shoes. She also delights in fine food and wine - even if she is slender as a model, and even though she adopted a guise of determined ineptitude in her first book, "A Tiger in the Kitchen," which describes her attempts to learn to prepare the dishes of her native Singapore. But Cheryl Tan, noir connoisseur?

BEIJING -- Calling such aid a threat to national security, the police have blocked a messenger from delivering $25,000 in foreign donations to help the families of people killed in the crackdown on the 1989 Tiananmen student democracy movement. The messenger, Lu Wenhe, a Chinese citizen who has lived in the United States for 20 years, was detained in Beijing in late December while on his way to meet Ding Zilin, whose 17-year-old son was shot dead by soldiers in 1989. After three days of questioning in which his passport was confiscated and he was threatened with prison, Lu disclosed the purpose of his visit.

HONG KONG - High atop the pencil-thin buildings that form the concrete forest called Kowloon sits a tiny apartment where a lone man gadflies the world's last major communist regime, one fax at a time. His weapons include a cell phone, a pager, a desktop computer and a giant-screen television. His office mates: an 8-month-old cat and seven mice who scurry about in several plastic cages that resemble a Habitrail. His name is Lu Siqing, and he runs the Information Center for Human Rights and Democracy, a one-man operation that has done more on a daily basis to publicize abuses by the Chinese government than any other person or organization in recent memory.

BURMA -- or Myanmar, more formally -- makes the Western news pages mostly for its repression of the struggling democracy movement led by Nobel peace laureate Daw Aung San Suu Kyi, who is continually harassed and was recently physically attacked while trying to address her followers. But those who dare to take a serious approach to drug eradication are likely to end up in deadlier trouble with the ruling dictatorship, known as the State Law and Order Restoration Council, or SLORC, which has incorporated the booming heroin trade into the permanent economy of the country.

The freshman defeated her teammate Victoria Kogan, 6-1, 6-4, to win the state girls singles championship Saturday. Lu also won the Howard County championship but fell to Kogan, a sophomore, in the regional final. Her state title is the county's first since Glenelg's Marianne Baker in 2002. Lu is only the second Baltimore-area girl to win a singles title in the last 10 years and it is believed to be the first time a player has defeated a teammate in the final. Lu, who spent half the season as the Raiders' No. 2 girls singles player and half at No. 1, helped the Raiders go 20-0 this spring.

Howard County players swept the two singles titles at the state tennis championships Saturday in College Park. Reservoir senior Biyik Akinshemoyin beat Wootton's Mateo Cevallos - the defending state champion - in straight sets, 6-2, 6-1, to win the boys singles title. Akinshemoyin, who lost to Cevallos after retiring due to cramping in last year's championship match, is Howard County's first boys state singles champion since Wilde Lake's David Nguyen won in 2006. "I've won some USTA tournaments before … but there's a different type of feel to high school tennis," said Akinshemoyin, who has committed to play for UMBC next year.

WIMBLEDON, England — Andy Roddick never did figure it out. The big serve that kept kicking up chalk dust, the cruelly low-bouncing ground strokes, the slippery volleys that would skid past a lunging Roddick — all of it was just too perplexing until the three-time Wimbledon finalist who was seeded fifth trudged off Court 2 with a soggy towel draped around his slumped shoulders. Yen-Hsun Lu, a 26-year-old son of a chicken salesman from Taipei, Taiwan, who said he gave himself little hope after the fourth set, beat Roddick 4-6, 7-6 (3)
