What a bizarre spectacle. Assuming he did not lie during his marathon news conference, the feeding frenzy surrounding New Jersey Gov. Chris Christie will be remembered as one of those incredibly odd moments of elite journalistic hysteria that are difficult to explain to people who weren't there or didn't get it. I'm not referring to the scandal itself; that's easy enough to understand. What Mr. Christie's team did was outrageous and deserves as much foofaraw and brouhaha as the New Jersey media can muster.

The cruise ship business can float in Baltimore, but a projected industry wave of passengers and vessels would not boost the city to levels reached in New York and Florida, according to a soon-to-be released study conducted for the Maryland Port Administration. The port wanted to know how aggressively it should pursue cruisers' dollars and the ships they sail in on. It also wanted to determine how much taxpayer money should be spent to build a new terminal away from the present location - a crowded industrial berth at Dundalk Marine Terminal.

From: Mendocino, Calif. Price: $15 Serve with: Grilled seafood This is not a flashy wine. It's just a very pure, fresh, penetrating sauvignon blanc that is true to its varietal character without going overboard in any way. It's pleasingly herbal without straying into shrillness. There are attractive notes of slate, juniper and citrus fruit. The finish is clean and satisfying.

You want to know about the state of race in our country? Forget Rodney King and forget Reginald Denny.Look to Ted "Mammy" Danson instead.Danson has taught us a valuable lesson. Actually, we already knew it. He taught himself a valuable lesson: Where race is involved, America is one gigantic laughter-free zone.OK, that's not entirely true.Blacks can tell jokes about race. Richard Pryor and Eddie Murphy can use the "n-word" with impunity. Some rap groups seem to use nothing but the n-word. White people cannot.

100 years agoThe supply of oysters in Annapolis is limited. With the thermometer at 12 degrees above zero, it was not expected that oystermen could work, and the few who attempted to visit the grounds returned without throwing their rakes overboard. -- The Sun, Jan. 6, 1896.Next Monday, the semi-annual examination of cadets will begin at the Naval Academy. Of the 60 posted as being behind in their studies, it is likely about 25 will be unable to pass "through the ordeal." -- The Sun, Jan. 23, 1896.

The daily parsing by The Sun of every aspect of Attorney General Doug Gansler's recent troubles since the story broke about a teen party he attended in Delaware has been relentless and tiresome, and you outdid your editorial selves by even publishing a letter by Republican National Committee Chairman Reince Priebus, of all people ( "RNC chairman: Gansler failed as a parent and a public official," Oct. 29). Readers might expect the dripping hypocrisy of him and his ilk, but otherwise objective readers might conclude that The Sun must have a stake in Mr. Gansler's political future (demise?

Some people shudder at the thought of a "theme restaurant" — especially when that theme involves pirates. But with a gleaming, wood-lined interior, top-notch food and friendly service, Mutiny Pirate Bar in Glen Burnie is much better than it sounds on paper. A few years ago, Rob and Steve Wecker, the brothers behind Columbia's Iron Bridge Wine Company, along with friend Nate Hynson, got the urge to go marauding. Steve said he noticed that, "people are rooting for the pirates now. " When they found an empty building in a residential neighborhood near Marley Creek, they knew they'd have a great fit. From the outside, the bright blue building is just on the nice side of ramshackle.

The Ehrlich boys sure love their summer Slurpees. Even the 50-something Ehrlich kid is not averse to indulging on the way home from those hot summer football practices. (Mom does not share our male addiction but usually lets us slide in the interest of family unity.) That the Ehrlich Slurpee bonding experience takes place in Annapolis and not New York City is a good thing, as the Big Apple now deals with the latest assault on individual freedom from Mayor Michael Bloomberg. The successor to the wildly successful Rudy Giuliani is a billionaire Democrat-turned-Republican-turned-independent.

After nearly 30 minutes, it was apparent that the theme of the "State of the Ravens" address was about kissing up to quarterback Joe Flacco. In the weeks leading up to the AFC championship, Flacco had talked about being underappreciated here in Baltimore and was concerned about his role in the offense. Some of the national experts were saying he was nothing more than a clock manager, and you could see it irritated Flacco. Inside The Castle, the coaching staff knew that Flacco hasn't handled criticism well, and they were hoping he continued to grow in that area.

Adrift with his captors in sight of U.S. warships, the American sea captain being held for ransom by Somali pirates briefly escaped their lifeboat by jumping overboard, a U.S. official said Friday, but was recaptured and brought back. The U.S. military said Richard Phillips, who was taken by the pirates from the U.S.-flagged Maersk Alabama on Wednesday, appeared unharmed after the escape attempt. The military, which has been maintaining real-time video surveillance via an unmanned drone overhead, observed him moving around on the lifeboat after he was recaptured.
