Now that the NFL season is here, I'm putting a twist on my weekly Blogger on Blogger series. Each week, I will enlist a blogger who regularly writes about the Ravens' opponent to help me break down the game. This week, I exchanged emails with Max DeMara, who blogs about the Detroit Lions for Lions101.com . MV: The Lions were expected to run away with the NFC North after the Green Bay Packers lost Aaron Rodgers and the Chicago Bears lost Jay Cutler. But the Lions have lost three of their past four games and remain tied with the Bears at 7-6. The Packers, who could get Rodgers back this week or next, are a half game back at 6-6-1.

Ronald Simmont Sr. of Glen Burnie says he listens to NOAA Weather Radio every day, and he always hears the same voices: "How can this be? No matter what time I tune in, it's the same woman and guy giving the current conditions. Don't these people sleep?" They never do. They're computer-generated, text-to-speech synthetics. The lucious female voice is "Mara" (an upgraded "Donna"). The chipper male is "Tom." The Spanish-speaker is "Javier." Audio samples at weather.gov/nwr/newvoice.htm.

In the Netflix miniseries "House of Cards," Kate Mara plays a young reporter deeply involved in the world of Washington politics. But the 30-year-old performer says she has no particular interest in journalism or political life. She's just acting the part under the tutelage of screenwriter Beau Willimon and director David Fincher. "I'm not interested in politics or being a part of them," she said in a teleconference this week. "I definitely do my homework and make sure I know what's going on and am responsible enough to be able vote for people I respect and that kind of thing...

NEW ORLEANS -- If Ravens owner Art Modell is not selected for Hall of Fame induction on Saturday, it would be an affront to the man, the game and the NFL. He deserves to be enshrined as much as any player or other administrator/owner, including Tex Schramm, Al Davis, Wellington Mara and Art and Dan Rooney. For most of his 41 years as owner of the Cleveland Browns and Ravens, Modell has been a league guy and a Mr. Insider whose deals helped turn football into the most popular of all American sports.

"Mara and Dann: An Adventure," by Doris Lessing. Harper Collins. 407 pages. $25.One day last summer, when the heat and the crowds in New York were at their worst, I decided to go somewhere cool where I could be alone. I went to a theater showing Kevin Costner's "The Postman," a film about a journey into a strange dystopian future after some murky apocalypse.Tribal law has taken hold and the characters deal with a series of cruel and weird challenges. As the film mercifully ends (although the air-conditioning was great)

In a business known more for avarice than a commitment to the common good, Wellington T. Mara's decision more than 40 years ago on how the NFL should distribute its spoils remains not merely an anomaly in professional sports, but also continues to be the legacy that allows the league to flourish. Mara, the co-owner of the New York Giants, who agreed in the early 1960s that the league should equally divide money from the sale of television rights, died yesterday from cancer at his home in Rye, N.Y. He was 89. Mara's decision helped ensure that all NFL franchises, including ones from small markets, such as Green Bay, would have an opportunity to compete with teams from much larger markets, such as New York, on an even footing.

OUR NEIGHBORHOOD bank was robbed recently. It happens often, which is why I knew what was up when I saw a policeman in Linkwood Park. The cop was looking down at the mouth of the tunnel through which Stony Run passes beneath Overhill Road. "Been a bank robbery," I said. It wasn't even a question. He nodded, staring at the tunnel as if he expected the robber to emerge at any moment. "Good place to hide," I offered. (If you don't mind getting your feet wet, or the rats.) "Did he come this way?"
