It's tempting. We rarely get so obvious a target as Phil Gramm, the Texas senator who wants to become president.Like most Republicans, Gramm is a champion of middle-class, grass-roots family values.But he's been blushing lately because it's come out that he once invested a few thousand dollars in the production of a soft-porn film.So it would be easy to needle Gramm about talking like a goody-goody after financially backing the sort of bare-bosom-and-butt movie that decent church folk condemn.

The Ravens pared their roster down to the NFL's required 53-player limit Saturday, choosing to keep two quarterbacks and seven wide receivers and leaving themselves thin at cornerback and along the offensive and defensive lines. Among their 13 cuts were veteran guard A.Q. Shipley, who started nine games last year; outside linebacker John Simon, a fourth-round draft pick in 2013; quarterback Keith Wenning, a sixth-round selection in May; and veteran cornerbacks Dominique Franks and Derek Cox. With Wenning's release, the Ravens will enter their fifth straight season with just two quarterbacks on the roster.

Joe Flacco is no longer barraged with questions about former offensive coordinator Cam Cameron, finding consistency or even his capability to win the big game. Now the owner of one of the richest contracts in the history of the sport and two weeks away from receiving a sparkling Super Bowl ring, Flacco's status as the Ravens' franchise quarterback will probably never be this secure. Yet as he took the field Tuesday, the 28-year-old felt no different than he did during organized team activities the previous five years.

In his convention speech, Gov. Bill Clinton invited Americans to come visit his home state of Arkansas. He said they'd enjoy it. Having been there several times, I agree. Especially if they meet Ol' Bud.Ol' Bud was my host when I went to Arkansas. He operated a fishing camp at the end of a dirt road in the Ozarks. This was during a period of my life when I was enthused about catching Ol' Hog Jaw, which is how Ol' Bud referred to large-mouth bass.Ol' Bud was an expert at catching Ol' Hog Jaw, and we plucked many an Ol' Hog Jaw from the water to the frying pan, the poor things.

If the federal prison that gets Tavon White is anything like the last one I visited, even a charmer such as Bulldog will have a tough time recreating the life of the libertine he had at the Baltimore City Detention Center. White, a reputed leader of the Black Guerrilla Family prison gang, is accused of attempted murder; he's been on trial twice for that charge since 2009. Both trials ended in hung juries, and that explains why White, or "Bulldog," had enough time at the jail to get four of its correctional officers pregnant, one of them twice, according to recent federal indictments.

The significance of his commitment to Maryland wasn't lost on Jared Cohen . The McDonogh offensive lineman is the first Terps pledge in the 2014 class - a group that will never play in the Atlantic Coast Conference.   “It feels really cool,” said Cohen, who committed to Maryland on Monday. “I haven't really been able to be a part of something like that in my lifetime. I really hope that it turns out to be a really good legacy of the first person to commit … [to] the first [Maryland]

More than a quarter-century has passed since Tom Wopat last jumped, feet first, into the General Lee and sped away for a half-hour of redneck fun on TV's "The Dukes of Hazzard. " But in a career that has included Tony and Grammy nods (thanks to his stint on Broadway in "Annie Get Your Gun") and television appearances aplenty, he's still Luke Duke to legions of fans. "It's amazing, it's crazy," says the 61-year-old Wopat, who still gets together with "Hazzard" co-star John Schneider (and sometimes even the original Daisy, Catherine Bach)

To say that this episode was uncomfortable is an understatement. Scene after scene we were left cringing as the housewives were groped, hit on, confronted, and bossed around. Perhaps the most awkward scenarios during the episode involved Aviva's father, George.  Aviva warned everyone that he is a bit of a sex addict but no one really expected that he would be so forward and sexual with the ladies. Throughout the entire episode he is trying to convince Sonja to sleep with him. He tells her that being in bed with him would be the kinkiest night she ever experienced.
