With the Ravens out of the playoffs, thanks to their miserable play the last two weeks of the season, I promised myself I was only going to watch football this weekend - not write about it. So, here I am writing. Why? I can't resist commenting on CBS Sports giving viewers of Sunday's playoff game between the Cincinnati Bengals and San Diego Chargers exactly what I have been lobbying for all year: a sideline reporter. Tracy Wolfson joined Jim Nantz and Phil Simms, and she provided viewers with some of the things I wanted in a Ravens telecast: injury reports, condition of the field, a sense of what was happening on the benches.

Positively Fifth Street, by James McManus. Farrar, Straus and Giroux. 416 pages. $26. Positively Fifth Street explores those two most American of pastimes -- poker and murder. It is the story of Texas no-limit hold 'em -- the ultimate high-stakes card game -- and the sharpies who flock to Las Vegas every spring for a showdown in the World Series of Poker. And it is the story of the grisly murder of Ted Binion -- a heroin addict and roustabout whose father founded the World Series and who dies, in classic Vegas style, at the hands of a stripper and her boyfriend.

Catholic schools in Baltimore propelled George W. McManus Jr. from poverty to success as a lawyer, he says, providing him a solid education. And years later, when the legal tables turned and he needed defense, priests and school officials were there as character witnesses. Now McManus, 92, plans to leave an $8.5 million bequest to benefit the schools he attended as well as other charities. Officials with the Baltimore Community Foundation expect to distribute the funds for years to come, as the fund would generate an estimated half-million dollars a year in interest.

It almost seems like distant history now, but it was really just a few short months ago that President Barack Obama and Senate Republicans, spurred by fear of fiscal chaos, did the unthinkable: They went out to dinner and talked civilly about the possibility of a "grand bargain," a compromise that would shrink the deficit through revenue increases and long-term spending cuts. But since that hopeful first date, the relationship hasn't quite blossomed into romance - or even into real negotiations.

After the terrorist attacks of Sept. 11, 2001, the most frequently heard forecast was: "This changes everything. " Americans would live in constant fear of the next attack, many pundits predicted. The desire for safety would spawn a security state that would trample constitutional freedoms. The economy would take a long-term hit. American life would never be the same. Most of those dire predictions didn't come true, of course. The U.S. economy rebounded quickly. Civil liberties came under stress, but fears of a surveillance state weren't realized.

Ten years have passed since the United States invaded Iraq, a decision that almost everyone now ranks as one of the worst foreign policy blunders of our time. Why "almost"? Former President George W. Bush and his top aides still maintain that the invasion was a good idea, even though the premise on which the war was based - that Saddam Hussein had acquired weapons of mass destruction - proved false, and even though the ensuing war claimed the lives of more than 4,500 Americans and an estimated 127,000 Iraqis.

Today's topic: the billions (yes, with a "b") that will be spent on advertising in this year's presidential and congressional campaigns, and what kind of messages that money is sending. Like jazz, blues and musical comedy, the political ad is a uniquely American contribution to the arts, only less uplifting. Some turn into classics, like Ronald Reagan's 1984 "Morning in America" ad or the 2008 will.i.am music video based on Barack Obama's "Yes, we can" speech. Whatever your politics, you had to admire their artistry.

Having recently been allowed by the government to finally legally wed my longtime partner, I read with interest your article about the declining proportion of Americans who are married ("Let's revive marriage in America," Jan. 3). It saddens me that so many young people feel that they couldn't make a marriage last. Yes, it does take work; but it is worth it. Author Mike McManus is also correct that having a marriage based in some sort of religion helps. But on visiting the author's website to learn more, I was dismayed to find that his advice to couples was just a ruse to spread his views bitterly opposing same-sex marriage.
