In the years since Baltimore Circuit Judge M. Brooke Murdock's famously controversial ruling helped energize the movement to overturn Maryland's ban against same-sex marriage, three gay men have invited her to officiate at their weddings. One was a lawyer and old friend. One was a fellow judge. The third was a man who used to walk his dog in Federal Hill at the same time of day Murdock did. Some time after her 2006 ruling that Maryland's marriage law was discriminatory, the dog-walker asked Murdock to preside at his wedding - once, he said, same-sex marriage became legal.

Baltimore's skateboarding teens are also at risk of dropping out of school, never learning to speak up for themselves and making missteps on the tenuous road from adolescence to adulthood. So Stephanie Murdock wants to help them build a skate park.

It's certainly a "change in the landscape" for network television, as one executive noted. What's less certain is whether the coup by Fox Broadcasting in taking 12 key stations from CBS and the other old-line networks will improve the wasteland that makes up so much of that landscape.Fox, owned by international media mogul Rupert Murdock, has taken a giant leap toward network status. It has shaken up the three established commercial networks, particularly the current ratings leader, CBS. Acquisition of strong, established stations in 12 cities will give Fox a big boost in income.

Alexandra Murdock and her family are going to New York City today because she is one of 10 national winners in the Arthur Ashe Essay Contest sponsored by the U.S. Tennis Association. No one could be more surprised than Murdock, who won in the 10-and-under category. "I had heard of Arthur Ashe, but I didn't know what he had done until we went to the library and I read about him," said Murdock, now 11. "They used a lot of good adjectives.

The Maryland Court of Special Appeals reaffirmed a lower court's ruling that the front of the brick rowhouse lies on a different road than the houses to which it is connected.

Margaret Brooke Murdock was once president of the Women's Law Center in Towson, an organization that promotes "equal rights for women and children," according to its mission statement. Now she is a Baltimore Circuit Court judge, and a ruling last week has thrust her into another equal rights issue - this one a particularly contentious battle playing out at a national level. Murdock sided with nine gay couples and one man in ruling that Maryland's three-decades-old law defining marriage as being between a man and a woman violates the state's constitution.

In 1986, the roof-raising soul singer scored her biggest hit with "As We Lay," a tormented, passion-drenched ballad that flew into the Top 10 on the R&B charts and pushed sales of her self-titled debut to gold. "There was so much controversy about that song," Murdock says 21 years later. "It didn't celebrate infidelity. That song was about two people making a bad decision, dealing with the regret.
