A woman who counts among her possessions a swastik armband and the Cincinnati Reds today was scheduled to turn Major League Baseball away from a myriad of pressing business problems to a situation as troublesome and unbecoming as any on the game's growing list of woes.With no commissioner in office, no joint drug policy in effect, no network TV contract for beyond next season, no assurance that games will be played in April and the prospect of a congressional hearing about its antitrust status, Major League Baseball today was to deal with Marge Schott and allegations of racism and discrimination against her."

Marjorie Kurdle, who performed on local stages for nearly four decades and became an assistant to New York producer David Merrick, died of lung cancer July 28 at Stella Maris Hospice. The Towson resident was 68. "Marge was a leading lady in every way," said F. Scott Black, liberal arts dean at the Community College of Baltimore County and a theater director.

Born Marjorie Sires in Monticello, Iowa, she earned a degree at Stephens College and attended the University of Iowa.

"George and I have just celebrated our silver wedding anniversary, but our marriage is empty and unhappy," says Marge, 49, in a tight, unhappy voice.It was different when the children were young. Then, they seemed to agree about everything, Marge recalls. But with both girls grown and living on their own, she and George, 50, who took a salesman's job with a large medical supply company after his own firm went bankrupt, have nothing in common.Marge fell in love with George's exuberant approach to life, which was so different from her own strict upbringing, in which duty always came before pleasure.

"More than anything, I want us to be one big happy family since we both had such miserable first marriages," says Marge, 35. "But in the year and a half that Tim and I have been married, we've grown further apart instead of closer together. And it's all because of the kids."Josie, Tim's 17-year-old daughter, makes Marge feel like the wicked stepmother, defying her rules about curfews and chores and constantly interrupting her conversations with Tim and ignoring any of her well-intended suggestions to slim down.

I'M ASHAMED TO ADMIT IT, BUT it's true: The guiding hand that introduced me to the classics of theater, film and even some literature was yellow, with four fingers. No, it wasn't a jaundiced and digit-deprived English teacher, but dozens of episodes of The Simpsons. Yes, I learned of the highbrow from those with no brows. It was the animated farce that introduced me to HMS Pinafore, Citizen Kane, A Streetcar Named Desire and even the works of Ayn Rand. Gullible do-gooder Ned Flanders, not Marlon Brando, was my first Stanley Kowalski.

I'm so grateful for the books she's recommended," the woman said, according to reference librarian Kathy Lewis. Trautman, a longtime Howard County librarian, is retiring Friday after a 28-year career.

Trautman has done everything from driving a Bookmobile to serving as interim manager at the central library - her current position.

Ricky Gervais has made a career out of making us cringe. His brilliant 2001 BBC comedy, The Office, took on matters of race, religion, disability and gender -- frequently crossing lines that we typically dare not cross in polite society.

Explaining his commitment to diversity, he said, "I haven't got a sign on the door that says white people only.

The family returned to the Gulf Coast last week, leaving the home in disarray, littered with trash and unwanted clothing. Graffiti were spray-painted in black letters on the exterior white siding.
