On Tuesday, June 12, I sat on I-795 for 45 minutes with my engine turned off. The delay was not traffic related. It was not weather related. It was, however, to provide President Barack Obama an open, secure road for his motorcade to travel unimpeded from Greenspring Valley to the Inner Harbor. His trip was not to conduct the business of the people but rather to raise money to keep his job. This delay gave me much time to think about the Kabuki theater of security as perpetuated by the federal government; from the theater of the absurd as performed by the Transportation Security Administration (already much documented)

Remember the time Kevin Spacey and Bill Clinton rolled into the Starbucks near UB in Mount Vernon? Spacey told David Letterman last night that he was following the former president's motorcade when Clinton got a hankering for a coffee. "So we're driving through the streets of Baltimore with the Secret Service and police motorcade and he says, 'I want some coffee. I think there's a Starbucks up ahead,'" said Spacey, mimicking Clinton's gravelly drawl. Clinton was in town to give a speech at the Meyerhoff Symphony Hall.

Lots of pets will be getting presents for the holidays this year. And Bo Obama is no exception. In fact, the world knows what the First Dog is going to get. On Wednesday, President Obama went Christmas shopping, stopping at Best Buy (to pick up some video games and iTunes gift cards, probably for his girls) and at PetSmart to get a little something for the pup. It looks like Bo is going to spend the holidays chomping on one seriously large bone. And I'm not sure, but it looks like that might be a bag of treats in the President's hand.

The balding guy with a shy way about him would always sit in the back of the church, usually by himself, and silently slip out after Communion and before the final hymn. Congregants at Old St. Paul's in downtown Baltimore recalled one-time vestryman William Donald Schaefer on a glorious Easter Sunday, just three days before the former mayor and governor will return to his old church one last time. Services for Schaefer, who died at 89 a week ago, will be held at the historic church Wednesday after he lies in state at the State House and in City Hall Monday and Tuesday.
