She's not Obama Girl, but Cheryl A. McLeod may be the essence of the national phenomenon generated by Sen. Barack Obama. She's got the wardrobe and the record to prove her commitment. At the end of July, the Ellicott City resident set out by bus for Denver and a weekend training session for Obama convention volunteers. She thinks of the 2,000-mile, 39-hour trip (one way) as her chance to take part in changing the nation's political system, in behalf of a candidate who is the embodiment of that change.

A man has to have style," says Gus McLeod, explaining his choice of clothes. He's decked out in black loafers, dress slacks and dress shirt, a brown bomber jacket and one of those dashing, Indiana Jones-ish, snap-brim fedoras. Yes, sir, Gus is stylin'. Gus is duded up for a round of golf, possibly a tough day of shopping at the mall. Only catch is McLeod isn't going golfing ... or shopping. Rather, this is how he intends to dress when he embarks on a record-breaking flight around the world next week.

The faceman cometh. And he entertaineth. But then he falleth-down-go-boom.In other words, Mel Gibson's "The Man Without a Face" is unfortunately based on the script without a third act, and so it tragically deflates as it rolls onward.Yet it's not without its quiet joys, at least for an hour or so. Gibson, directing himself without a lot of vanity and with a surprising generosity to his other performers, plays Justin McLeod, a former prep school teacher who has suffered a terrible and mysterious burn.

Atholton running back Matt Winger had experienced both his school's first playoff berth in 20 years and its initial playoff win primarily because of his school-record rushing totals. Last night, Winger experienced another first in a Class 2A South final loss to visiting defending state champion Potomac: A zero on his team's side of the scoreboard.
