Los Angeles -- Soon after the historic California primary put two women in Senate contention and 18 women among the finalists for the state's 52 congressional seats, I found myself amid a celebratory sea of women at a Los Angeles fund-raiser for State Treasurer Kathleen Brown, feeling a little grumpy around the edges.But why? After all, it had been a long haul for women in politics. It was time to celebrate, as a quartet of female luncheon speakers clearly aimed to do and as numbers of women did again at the Democratic National Convention.

THE HALLWAY is lined with the classroom chairs of little children. The man behind me walks with a cane and must seat himself on a different chair every time we move toward the voting booths. It is 7 o'clock Tuesday morning, and I am already the 25th person in line. The man with the cane points it toward the children's lockers in this packed elementary school hallway that serves today as Precinct 56, Ward 27 of the city of Baltimore. "Look at this," says the man with the cane. There are first names on each of the lockers.

"Wicked" strikes many a chord, and not just during its catchy songs. It also speaks to issues of prejudice and intolerance. "Outsiders tend to get bullied," said the musical's producer, Marc Platt. "And Elphaba" - aka the Wicked Witch of the West - "is the quintessential outsider. She's bullied onstage. When bullying became part of the national conversation a few years ago, we allowed the show and its characters to be involved. " Cast members have made videos for the "It Gets Better" campaign.

Ingersoll-Rand's new Cyclone Grinder, an air-powered hand tool for removing burrs from aircraft-engine turbine blades and the like, is a user's delight. Sales, 18 months after product release, have increased by about 65 percent over the old version.In 1987, IR's product ranked third in its category and had been redesigned, unimaginatively, four times in a dozen years. Power Tool Division Marketing and Sales Vice President Dick Poore declared that the time had come to get bold.Project boss Jim Stryker spelled out some of the new departures: Manufacturing and engineering would work together -- "simultaneously" -- from the start.

Traditional police tactics have been only marginally effective in combating the drugs and mayhem that often plague subsidized housing projects. The police swoop down, arrest a few offenders and the illegal activity starts up again. Howard Police Chief James Robey thinks he's hit upon a solution that will not only stem the tide of drugs but forge a healthier interplay between police and community.The experiment under way in Columbia's Stevens Forest Apartments, a neighborhood troubled with open-air drug markets, is a partnership between residents and police.

Trying to figure out what the Central Intelligence Agency is up to is a lot like watching shadows on the wall. The shadow may be larger than the reality, or it may be conjured out of nothing. The CIA's relatively new director promises a series of changes in the agency's structure and "culture," in response both to the end of the Cold War and the discovery of a traitor in its midst. What does it all mean?Some things are fairly obvious. The agency seriously botched the Aldrich Ames case, ignoring for years warning signals he might be spying on the U.S. rather than for it. It needs to justify its whopping cost at a time of fiscal stringency and declining global tension.

For most of Ray Lewis' 17-year NFL career, his face - eyes burning, mouth bellowing exhortations - was the face of the Ravens. Johnny Unitas' flinty gaze and stooped shoulders had symbolized pro football for earlier generations of Baltimore fans, and Lewis followed in the great quarterback's footsteps, becoming an icon for the new era of purple and black ardor. The Ravens made that association official Thursday morning, unveiling a bronze statue of the retired linebacker only a few feet from the statue of Unitas that greets visitors outside M&T Bank Stadium.

The Ravens announced Wednesday that the statue of the middle linebacker will be unveiled Thursday at a ceremony scheduled for 11 a.m. in Unitas Plaza.

Anything to get out of the mud and subsistence farming that has been her family's lot for generations and that 16 years of capitalist-style economic reforms have done little to improve.In this remote part of China's rugged southwest, poverty is not relative, it's absolute. Many people wonder how they will feed themselves, and up to 30 percent of children do not attendschool, some because their families can't afford to clothe them.

A Morgan State defense that finished 2013 ranked eighth in the Mid-Eastern Athletic Conference in average yards allowed (391.8) and ninth in average points surrendered (30.6) could be weaker after the departure of five starters. But the Bears return three of four linebackers who earned a majority of starts last season, and that group was cited by rookie head coach Lee Hull as being critical to leading the defense. “We're really counting on those guys to be the anchor of our defense,” Hull said Tuesday during the MEAC's weekly conference call.
