GUEUGNON, France — Mark Cavendish screamed in exultation Friday, outsprinting game American Tyler Farrar over the line and winning the hot, windy Stage 6 at the Tour de France. Cavendish, of the Columbia-HTC team, finished the longest mileage day of racing in 5 hours, 37 minutes, 42 seconds, nosing his bike ahead of Farrar, who rides for Garmin-Transitions and is racing despite a broken bone in his wrist. The 141.3-mile route began in Montargis and was a draining day with temperatures on the road approaching 100 degrees.

O' say can you see? The answer these past couple weeks in downtown Baltimore would be a definite, no! ("Race to remove Grand Prix barriers," Sept. 3) The weeks of hassle for Baltimore commuters while setting up for the race, not too mention the weeks after the race for removing the concrete barricades/chain link fencing/blue "block out" tarps would be bad enough, but it was Labor Day weekend! Where do I begin? Enough is enough. This race is an abysmal failure, and the businesses, residents and tourists that are in Baltimore need for it to cease and desist.

Take three very common ingredients, combine them in a new way and voila, a tasty new dish that's sure to please.Bell peppers, spaghetti with sauce and grated cheese take an inside out turn when the spaghetti actually becomes the stuffing for the peppers.This treatment was inspired by a chef in Italy who went to a good deal more effort than we're proposing here. He roasted the whole peppers first and then peeled them. He added anchovies, bread crumbs, lots of olive oil and lots of baking time.

And that expensive bottle of perfume in your checked bag is likely to arrive broken or not at all. But fret not. Designers and cosmetic companies have taken note, launching mini-sized, wrinkle-free or collapsible products that help travelers stay fashionable while jet-setting. "So many designers and companies are conscious of travel-friendly fabrics and products," said Stephanie Bradshaw, a stylist based in Cockeysville.

A snowstorm intended for Southern Maryland turned north Saturday, snarling traffic and causing many to unexpectedly scrap their weekend plans. By mid-afternoon Saturday, the weather system had dropped four inches in Baltimore and more in Salisbury and Ocean City, according to the National Weather Service. Though BWI Thurgood Marshall Airport remained open with few delays and cancellations, traffic on Interstate 95 and other major roads slowed to a crawl in certain areas. "Roadway conditions are not ideal," Lora Rakowski, a spokeswoman for the State Highway Administration, said Saturday afternoon.

There's a scene near the end of one of the first episodes of the new season of “House of Cards” that features Frank (Kevin Spacey) and Claire (Robin Wright) Underwood late at night sharing a smoke at an open window of their Washington townhouse. The setting has become a favorite site for writer and showrunner Beau Willimon to explore the particular brand of intimacy enjoyed by these two attractive and complex political predators trying to impose their will on Washington: he as a South Carolina congressman who has risen to majority whip, and she as the politically ambitious head of a nonprofit dealing with the environment.
