Singer Katy Perry might have done a service for her country by giving a concert for the Annapolis Naval Academy the other day. But she gave one midshipman a little more -- a kiss right on the lips. The proudly smooched one was a happy-looking fellow named Nicholas "Tanner" Beasley. The singer gave the private show for the Naval Academy on Friday. The lip lock came while Perry, dressed in a midriff-baring, quite short, sequined sailor outfit, had Beasley on stage -- while his peers hooted, whistled and otherwise went wild.

We noted an important connection between two separate articles that appeared in the June 4 issue of The Sun. In the article regarding hazing among Towson University cheerleaders ( "Towson U. hazing details released" ), we read that according to investigators, "the women were told they had a choice of doing cocaine or heroin, to test their understanding of team rules. Although no drugs were provided, this was done to let the new members [on the cheerleading team] know that the team was drug free, investigators wrote.

A midshipman who crashed his SUV into a creek and drowned in February had been drinking at an Annapolis bar earlier that night, a Naval Academy investigation found. Midshipman Max Allen, a senior from Chesterfield, Va., had ordered a burger and several drinks, including "The Max," a Long Island Iced Tea spinoff named after him, with two other midshipmen at the Federal House Bar and Grille on Feb. 14, according to the report. Allen returned to his dorm around 11:30 p.m., then had a phone conversation with a friend around 1 a.m., before leaving again, the report said.

As my classmates and I celebrated at the Naval Academy following President Obama's confirmation of Osama bin Laden's death, I could not help but think of the moment in the Wizard of Oz when Dorothy's house crushes the Wicked Witch of the East. The Munchkins' enthusiasm of her demise was equal to our own in Annapolis on that cool Sunday night. Of course, the Wicked Witch of the West halts the festivities in dramatic fashion, promising to avenge the death of her sister. Will a parallel to the end of that scene begin a new battle in the Global War on Terror?

A former Annapolis mayoral candidate and alderman was ordered Monday to spend next weekend in jail for groping the crotch of a drunken Naval Academy midshipman whom he was sponsoring. Anne Arundel County Circuit Judge Paul F. Harris Jr. said he probably would not have jailed Samuel E. Shropshire, but Shropshire's words to a pre-sentence investigator changed that. Despite Shropshire's text-messaged apology to the midshipman shortly after the incident and subsequent admission in a telephone call, Shropshire told the investigator that his 21-year-old accuser was "lying through his teeth," the judge said.

" Loewen, 20, of Hampstead, N.C., a midshipman third class majoring in oceanography who was planning to graduate in 2016, died March 29, a week after a skateboarding accident at Assateague State Park left him in a coma.

A Naval Academy midshipman accused of sexually assaulting a classmate at an off-campus party asked a judge Friday to decide his fate instead of a jury in the trial that's being watched at the Annapolis institution and across the country as a bellwether of how the military handles such cases. Midshipman Joshua Tate is charged with aggravated sexual assault and making false statements to investigators in a court-martial beginning Monday at the Washington Navy Yard. Tate was to face a jury made up of Navy and Marine Corps officers stationed in the Washington region but had a "change of heart," according to his civilian attorney, Jason Ehrenberg.
