OK, this Midweek Madness selection is ever so slightly politically incorrect, by 2013 standards. So sue me. This skit from the classic 1960s comedy album "When You're in Love, the Whole World is Jewish" features a young Valerie Harper and some great colleagues. So enjoy it, already. And have a nice hot glass of tea.

Yes, dear hearts, Midweek Madness is back after a hiatus. For no particular reason, other than a strange interest in vintage anything and a desire to perk up your day with something totally absurd, this week's selection is an eyewear fashion show that you have to see to believe. Even then, you may harbor doubts. I recently read a story referring to someone's "important glasses," and maybe that's the best description for these lovelies. Don't miss the last one -- that's my favorite.

Midweek Madness, distraught over them O's (as we say in Baltimore), was prepared to forget all about the World Series, until this droll reminder from the brass players of the Boston Symphony Orchestra and Saint Louis Symphony Orchestra. This fun Wold Series video is all the more delightful for the surprise reinforcement in the Boston team.

COLLEGE PARK - A nearly 60-year-old basketball arena called Cole Field House was transformed into a hot, crowded, ear-deafening time capsule Friday night. It could have been 1969, the year Lefty Driesell arrived from Davidson filled with bluster and bravado and determined to make Maryland into "the UCLA of the East. " It could have been 1989, the year Gary Williams returned to his alma mater from Ohio State, vowing to rebuild a scandal-ridden, down-on-its-luck program. It could have been 2002, when the Terps won their first national championship a few weeks after closing the building with an unbeaten home season.

Former Maryland men's basketball coach Gary Williams first walked into Cole Field House 50 years ago. A high school senior at the time, Williams had been invited to College Park from his home in South Jersey by coach Bud Millikan to watch the 1963 NCAA tournament East Regional. "I had seen the Palestra in Philadelphia, which was 9,000 [capacity], but this was 14,000," Williams recalled this week. "I walked in from the street on the top level. It kind of took your breath away. " As much as Williams liked the school and its coach, he fell in love with what was then an 18-year-old building that was among the best and biggest college basketball venues in the country.

If you haven't been to College Park in, say, a decade, this is what Cole Field House looks like. No, really, for the most part, it does. But ... how could that happen, you ask? Simple: Once Comcast Center debuted in 2002, Cole Field House became something of an athletic relic. It is still a stage for sporting battles, as you can see, but now they get only as must-see as inter-fraternity soccer games. Not exactly Maryland-Duke. But with Maryland Madness moving to Cole Field House for Friday's unofficial season kickoff, the Terps' old home is getting the extreme makeover it deserves (and needs, too, I suppose)

Again, when given the choice, The Sun takes the low road when covering the government shutdown ( "Fund government, then negotiate," Oct. 7). Of course many folks are impacted by the government shutdown. That's obvious. What you fail to highlight or understand is that the U.S. is on the edge of financial disaster. The spending madness has to stop today! Everyone has to take responsibility for causing the problem - and more importantly, fixing the problem. Stop being a shill for Gov. Martin O'Malley and President Barack Obama and do the responsible thing.

And so, the inevitable has finally become the official with the announcement from Fox News today that Dr. Ben Carson, the Johns Hopkins neurosurgeon turned conservative pundit, has become a paid contributor. Carson "is a brilliant neurosurgeon who has dedicated his life to healing others," Fox chairman and CEO Roger Ailes said in a statement. "He also has a broad perspective on what's going on in the country and his wisdom and provocative viewpoints will make a major contribution to our network.

This is your lucky Wednesday -- a Midweek Madness double feature. Now that you have stopped chuckling at the 'Conduct Us' orchestra, how about a preview of "Homeland" the Musical? Hey, maybe it's not as far-fetched as it might appear, given that one of the hit TV show's stars is Broadway veteran Mandy Patinkin. And you just know it would be fun seeing all those colorful "Homeland" characters break into song and dance, in between dodging "Manchurian Candidate"-style assassins and inappropriate trysts.
