When she returns to Baltimore, Zoey Washington walks the streets with relative anonymity. She'll pop into local boutiques unnoticed. This isn't the reception you would expect for a woman who founded a nationally recognized styling collective, LittleBird, focused on the teen and tween demographic, and who has held editing positions with some of the world's best-known glossies. Washington, a 31-year-old graduate of Garrison Forest School and Columbia University, prefers it that way. But Washington's resume reads like a who's who of fashion elite: She's held positions at Marie Claire, Vogue and Essence.

Every news outlet you can think of has had something to say about Ray Rice. Plus one you might not think of. Cosmopolitan. On its website, the magazine famous for its naughty bedroom advice published a sad and searing commentary by author Roxane Gay on Janay Rice and domestic abuse. The appalling number of battered spouses - one in four women and one in seven men - has not moved the needle on this issue, she said, and she didn't think a video record of it would, either. Not exactly what you'd expect to hear from Cosmo.

If Stanley McChrystal has any kind of mordant humor, surely the song playing in his head these days is that old tune by Dr. Hook & the Medicine Show, the one about "the thrill that'll get-cha when you get your pict-cha on the cover of the Rolling Stone." That's actually Lady Gaga on the current cover, nearly naked but for an undergarment that gives "bullet bra" a whole new meaning. But somehow McChrystal has managed to upstage her even though he only makes an oblique appearance in the vicinity of her left knee, in a teaser headline, " Obama's General: Why he's losing the war."

After poring through 20 boxes of Betsy Bonaparte's correspondence at the Maryland Historical Society, Natalie Wexler's heart sank. In 2005, Wexler had been captivated by a portrait she'd seen of the Baltimore-born beauty, who wed Jerome Bonaparte, Napoleon's youngest brother, against the French emperor's wishes. Wexler is an author, a historian and an attorney. She itched to tell Betsy's story - until she started reading the letters. "Betsy was really not a very pleasant person," says Wexler, now 59 and a Washington resident.

Derek Jeter's impending retirement from Major League Baseball after 20 years, marked by emotional tributes during the All Star Game last week, is not the only reason this New York Yankees fan has been unsettled by the passage of time. JET magazine, the pocket-sized source of news about blacks since 1951, has bowed to the ages and gone digital with a new app. But its debut digital issue this month makes clear that JET is no longer the magazine for anyone who claims to be at least middle-aged.

If you've ever said you've seen enough of Towson-born Olympic swimmer Michael Phelps for one lifetime, I submit to you evidence that you may have spoken too soon. Phelps, the record-setting Olympic swimmer, is one of 22 athletes appearing nude in ESPN The Magazine's The Body Issue, which features photo spreads of the world's top athletes, well, out of uniform. Phelps will join tennis star Venus Williams, Seattle running back Marshawn Lynch (Beast Mode indeed), Texas first baseman Prince Fielder, Oklahoma City forward Serge Ibaka, and Arizona wide receiver Larry Fitzgerald, and former Maryland soccer player and current United States national team defender Omar Gonzalez.

In a publicity stunt that is sure to irritate 13-year-old boys and feminist scholars, Sports Illustrated and toy-maker Mattel have teamed up for the magazine's 50th anniversary swimsuit issue. Wearing an updated version of the black and white swimsuit she wore when she was introduced in 1959, Barbie appears on a giant billboard mock-up of the magazine cover and in a 4-page photo spread inside the magazine. The doll will also appear on a special edition wrap-cover of about 1,000 issues, and the only ones happy about this will be the 1,000 mothers and wives who won't have to look at three unearthly beautiful topless models who will appear on the actual front of the magazine when it hits newsstands Tuesday.

As a Messenger columnist, this time of year can be rough to write about. The post-New Years lull, as many of us are recovering from our Christmas and New Year's Eve festivities, can, traditionally, leave a gap in the calendar. But instead of taking some down time, I think we should keep the ball rolling in 2014. After all, I'm sure there's a calendar somewhere that will be misinterpreted to say that 2014 will be the final year of life on Earth as we know it. (Whatever happened to that Mayan calendar 2012 prediction anyway?

Here at the editorial board of The Sun, we like to give Columbia a little good-natured ribbing from time to time. James Rouse's planned community has gotten enough critical accolades in the national press since its opening in 1967 - for its efforts at integration of races and classes, suburban amenities like pools and paths and even its stab at interdenominational harmony with shared "interfaith centers" - that we assumed it could handle a few laughs...

" Just want 2 clarify.I love Maryland.Our crew is fab.The prison joke was a joke re: the warehouse.Truly sorry if anyone was offended," Louis-Dreyfus posted. A profile of the star in New York magazine and its pop-culture website Vulture dismissed Columbia as "home to one of the dreariest American landscapes imaginable: office parks, chain malls, and a cluster of Northeast-corridor warehouses for Sears and the like.
