Dr. Mark E. Molliver, a Johns Hopkins University School of Medicine professor emeritus of neuroscience and neurology, died of complications after cardiac arrest May 10 at Hopkins Hospital. The Canton resident was 75. Colleagues said his discoveries had an impact on analyzing the structure of the brain and its response to drugs. "Mark was one of the country's greatest neuroanatomists," said Solomon Snyder, founder and longtime director of Hopkins' department of neuroscience.

If you're used to watching an Orioles game in the quiet of a family room, then watching one at Camden Yards can be unsettling - fellow fans yelling in your ears, maybe dropping a profanity here and there. If you rarely walk on city sidewalks full of people, it can be a strange experience, especially if there are panhandlers or mentally ill wanderers in your path. If you're almost always with people who look like you, then being in a diverse crowd can be weird, even frightening. It was always thus, but never more so than in the last few decades in the United States.

Despite a barrage of public comments, many negative, Maryland State Board of Education members said Tuesday that they will push forward with plans to reduce the use of long-term suspensions and expulsions in student discipline. "Everybody gets that kids need to be in school," said board President James H. DeGraffenreidt Jr. "The question is how do we do that?" The board received more than 200 written comments after asking for public input when it released a report in late February, detailing proposed changes that would reduce suspensions for nonviolent offenses.

Why is it that The Baltimore Sun is so negative about the Baltimore Grand Prix ("Worse and worse," May 9)? Why is it that The Sun's sports pages rarely include any articles about IndyCar races leading up to the Baltimore Grand Prix? Why would they want to snuff out an event that puts Baltimore in such a positive light? As quoted in The Sun as recently as May 10th, Baltimore is considered a "hell hole" by many outside of the city. So why is The Sun so negative about an event that puts beautiful views of Baltimore on TV for so many to see?

Interesting case going on in a federal district court in eastern district of Pennsylvania.

Democratic House candidate John Delaney is up with the first negative television advertisement in Maryland's 6th Congressional District, taking to voters a feud with state Sen. Rob Garagiola that to date has mostly played out on the blogosphere. "He's not telling the truth," the ad's narrator says as black and white pictures of Garagiola flash across the screen. "He's hiding that he lobbied for five years, failed to legally disclose nearly $200,000 in lobbying fees, even lobbied to undermine health care reform.

PORT CHARLOTTE, Fla. - Orioles right-hander Jake Arrieta sparkled in his Grapefruit League debut - his first spring outing since undergoing right elbow surgery last August - throwing two hitless innings in Baltimore's 3-3 10-inning Grapefruit League tie with the Rays. Arrieta's performance, however, was overshadowed by a very scary moment in the top of the first, when Orioles left fielder Nolan Reimold was hit in the left side of his jaw by an Alex Cobb fastball. Reimold fell to the ground holding his face and was carted off the field.

Sure, the yearly switch to daylight saving time always puts some of us into a funk and a fog. It's true that it's harder to concentrate on writing that legal brief or counting out the correct change. It can't be denied that to the sleep-deprived, small setbacks can seem extra irritating. And, it's suddenly impossible to resist the salty bag of chips, sugary sodas and chocolate candy bar. But can the annual spring forward on daylight saving time actually be bad for our health?

Using music, poetry, dance and art, the Black Male Identity Project has been striving for the past year to overturn negative stereotypes of African-American men. "We know that Baltimore City has a lot of problems, but we wanted to celebrate the role of artists, of storytellers in producing narratives that can help us discover solutions," said Fanon Hill, a musician and co-director of the project. On Sunday, the project concluded at the Reginald F. Lewis Museum of Maryland African American History & Culture, but organizers say the program's positive message will carry on here and elsewhere.

As a young critic, I liked the ABC sitcom "Welcome Back, Kotter. " But I had a special spot in my heart for Juan Epstein, the character played with such energy and adventure by Robert Hegyes. I didn't really understand my affection for Hegyes and Epstein, though, until 2000 when I wrote "The Jews of Prime Time," a study of Jewish identity on network TV. (It's really a study in self-censorship by the Jewish founders and their lieutenants.) News of the actor's death at age 60 Thursday from a heart attack sent me back to the book, and this passage is the best appreciation and context I can offer for the TV career of Hegyes.
