Young buck. Buck wild. Make a buck. Buck the system. The buck stops here. "Buck" stops here. In his office at Morgan State University, MK Asante, the youngest professor ever to receive tenure at the school, is reflecting upon his teen years in the city he calls "Killadelphia, Pistolvania," and that are chronicled in his acclaimed recent memoir, "Buck. " "Buck" never was his nickname. Asante chose the title because he lived through nearly every variation of that "short but loaded" word and acted them out in roughly the order they're presented above.

Every week, I hope to bring you a quick Q&A with someone who covers the Ravens' opponent that week. This week, I chatted with Mike Klis, who covers the Denver Broncos for The Denver Post. MV: I'm sure it has been a crazy whirlwind covering the Broncos over the past 12 months, going from Tebowmania to the passing brilliance of Peyton Manning. Have you ever seen an offense radically change its philosophy from one season to the next while still having so much success? MK: It has been unique.

Lockheed Martin Corp.'s Middle River facility has received a contract for $51 million to manufacture missile launchers for the Navy's last three Arleigh Burke-class destroyers now under construction. The contract, which follows a $27 million award last summer to buy materials, marks the Navy's last order of MK 41 Vertical Launch Systems, which Lockheed has been making for the Navy since 1984. Each ship will get 12 modules that together can store and launch up to 96 missiles. Lockheed is to deliver the launchers by 2010, when the final three ships are expected to be delivered to the Navy.

Lockheed Martin Corp.'s Marine Systems unit in Middle River was awarded a $142 million contract yesterday to build missile launchers for the U.S. Navy and foreign navies, ensuring that the plant's main production line will stay open at least into 2007. The value could approach $323 million, with work continuing through 2009, if the federal government exercises two options. The award, which was expected, ensures a future for Lockheed Martin's MK 41 Vertical Launching System, the premier product built at the company's plant on Eastern Boulevard, which has 600 employees.

After years on sketch pads and drawing boards, the U.S. Navy's effort to design a new class of destroyer yielded its first pieces of steel a few weeks ago. Workers in a Mississippi shipyard welded together a giant box simulating a section of the hull to test a novel plan for storing missiles in rows just beneath the ship's outer skin, rather than bunched together in the center. The "test article" was hauled to a range at the Aberdeen Proving Ground, wired with cameras and sensors, loaded with "representative ordnance" and blown up. And at the Lockheed Martin Corp.

If you are the parent of an adolescent or near-adolescent, you should know that the hot new video game is Mortal Kombat II. Then you should drop to your knees and say a prayer for our country.MK II, which arrived nationally in toy stores a few days ago, follows on the heels of last year's hugely successful Mortal Kombat and has an equally tasteful premise: A group of unsavory characters competes in a mythical tournament in which the goal, near as I can tell, is to sever as many limbs and remove as many internal organs as possible.

I KICKED the laptop computer. I whacked it with a hammer. I jumped up and down on it. I tossed it onto the carpet and dropped it onto the pavement. I poured water and Coca-Cola down the screen and into the keyboard. And since the thing was still running, I decided to run over it with my car.A delicious fantasy of revenge? No, real-world testing. A computer in the Panasonic Personal Computer Co.'s CF-25 series is meant to be rugged, right down to its military looks and adherence to military standards that mandate things like being able to survive a two-foot drop on each face, edge and corner.

The missile launchers that Lockheed Martin builds in Middle River will fire almost anything. You can throw in an anti-submarine rocket, a little Sea Sparrow, one of those new SM-4 land attack missiles, it doesn't matter. The MK-41 will light it off. Now the engineers on Eastern Boulevard hope to prove they can not only launch anything, but they also can launch anywhere - specifically, underwater. Lockheed Martin's Marine Systems unit, manufacturer of the premier missile launching system for the U.S. Navy's surface ships, is trying to convince the Pentagon that it knows how to fire missiles from submarines as well.
