Worked into a lather by outgoing Afghan President Hamid Karzai's lack of gratitude to the United States, HBO's comically blustering John Oliver came up with the perfect revenge over the weekend. He read aloud negative Internet reviews of The Helmand, the Baltimore restaurant run by Karzai's brother, Qayum. The contretemps started when Hamid Karzai, in a farewell speech delivered last week, thanked many nations for helping Afghanistan and its people, but pointedly left out the United States or any mention of the 2,000 American casualties incurred during years of fighting in the region.

- Oliver Goss came to Congressional Country Club earlier this week looking to play in his second PGA Tour event at the Quicken Loans National. As things have transpired for the 20-year-old Australian, the hardest part was getting in the clubhouse door. "I don't have a PGA Tour credential because I'm not a member and they said, 'No, we can't let you in,'" Goss said Friday. "So I had to walk all the way around and go back in [another entrance] It's no big deal and I have a credential now. " Goss has more than that.

A new Main Street restaurant is the first in Laurel's Historic District to take advantage of the state law change that allows liquor licenses within 500 feet of a church. Olive on Main, which opened April 21 in the former site of Salute Italian Restaurant, is in the 500 block of Main Street and a block away from both First United Methodist Church and St. Philip's Episcopal Church. In 2013, the Maryland General Assembly passed a law amending a state law that denied establishments to serve alcohol within 500 feet of a church.

Ana Rule stepped onto a balcony outside the Inn at the Black Olive Sunday morning to check the first results of an unusual air-monitoring effort - one intended to make sure official monitoring across the street is accurate. The hotel in Baltimore's Fells Point overlooks Harbor Point, the planned $1.8 billion mixed-use development on land where a factory once processed chromium. Contaminated soil - capped years ago to keep the toxic chemicals under control - would be temporarily exposed during the early part of the work there.

The celebrity joined John "Jack" Dwyer, chairman of the family of Capital Funding companies in Baltimore, in a 50-50 venture to purchase the property for $4.5 million in January after being connected by Dimitris Spiliadis, whose family opened the 12-room hotel in 2011 and lost it to foreclosure last summer.
