Baltimore Mayor Stephanie Rawlings-Blake ranks among the world's best when it comes to her sartorial choices, according to Vanity Fair. It appears those stiletto heels, sleeveless dresses and statement necklaces have caught the attention of the haute couture editors at the trend-setting magazine, which recently ranked her among the top 10 best-dressed mayors in the world. Rawlings-Blake joins Chicago Mayor Rahm Emanuel and Los Angeles Mayor Eric Garcetti as the only Americans to make the list.

BETHESDA -- And now, let's check the last five holes of Ernie Els' winning scorecard in the final round of the U.S. Open yesterday: A par on No. 14. Another par on No. 15. Yet another par on No. 16. One more (par) on No. 17. And on the dramatic final hole par.That's right, Els won his second Open title in four years by parring the last five holes at Congressional Country Club.He didn't put on any Arnold Palmer charges, he didn't drain any miracle putts, he didn't hit any drop-dead irons; he didn't do a thing on the closing holes except (all together now)

AUGUSTA, Ga. -- If there was a lesson in the first two rounds of the Masters, it's that it's still the Masters. Sorry if that sounds like a Yogi Berra-ism, but there was so much shouting about the changes at Augusta National before the tournament that you almost expected the Masters as we knew it to disappear, replaced by another kind of tournament -- more sterile, conservative and boring. And quite clearly, that hasn't happened. Through two rounds, the tournament is the same as it ever was. Completely nuts.

SPRINGFIELD, N.J. -- What is this, the Greater Milwaukee Open?A guy who couldn't even beat former Vice President Dan Quayle in a pro-am last month is one of the leaders.Eighteen players, including an amateur, bust par.And the rough around the course is so short, golf balls and other assorted objects -- such as 28,000 spectators -- can actually be found without the aid of a caddie.The 93rd U.S. Open on the 7,116-yard, par-70 Lower Course at Baltusrol Golf Club could end up being awfully strange.

After reading The Sun's "Tracking on the campaign trail" (Nov. 16), I must congratulate this paper for (however inadvertently) exposing the indecency of the Democratic Party in Maryland - as if it needed further exposure. But the Democrats are again up to their dirty tricks, and it's no surprise. After all, they're ... well, Democrats, and Maryland Democrats are well-noted for their sleazy behavior. But to stalk a man's family and photograph his wife and children? That's going too far. And for that, creeps such as Jeff Moring should be ashamed.

Striped bass reproduction in Maryland waters improved this year, but remained well below average, state officials announced. The Department of Natural Resources said that its 2013 striped-bass juvenile index, a measure of spawning success in the Chesapeake Bay, is 5.8. That's much better than last year's tally of 0.9, but only about half the 60-year average of 11.7. “Several years of average reproduction mixed with large and small year-classes are typical for Striped Bass,” DNR Fisheries Director Tom O'Connell said in the press release announcing the results.

On Sunday night, Ravens fans spoke for millions of fellow football fans across the nation when they repeatedly thundered an 8-letter response to what might easily have been the worst officiated professional football game ever held at M&T Bank Stadium. For much of the end of the 4 t h quarter, and even as the Ravens came back to defeat the New England Patriots with a last-second field goal that, appropriately enough, was disputed by the losing team, the crowd seemed to speak with one (very loud)

Over the years, we have often disagreed with Del. Donald H. Dwyer Jr. on numerous matters of law and social justice. But it gives us no satisfaction to learn of the Anne Arundel Republican's involvement in a horrific boating accident Wednesday on the Magothy River. The accident caused serious injury to six people, including Mr. Dwyer, another adult and four children. Mr. Dwyer had been drinking and operating one of the vessels, the "Baja," a 26-foot runabout that collided with an 18.5-foot Bayliner and sank near Cornfield Creek.

In the old days, Tiger Woods might have won the AT&T National with ease. In the old days, Woods might not have needed his closest competitor to bogey the last three holes at Congressional Country Club. In the old days, Woods might not have stopped to acknowledge the two military officers waiting his arrival at the 18th tee before he made his final putt. In the old days, Woods might not have acknowledged the crowd - twice - and high-fived some volunteers en route to the scoring tent.

It's been seven months since Cafe Hon owner Denise Whiting publicly dropped her controversial trademark of the word "hon. " Chef Gordon Ramsay and the rest of the "Kitchen Nightmares" crew were even in town last week for a follow-up to the original Cafe Hon "Kitchen Nightmares" episode. So, with Honfest set for this weekend, is Hampden and the rest of hon-loving Baltimore ready to put the hon-troversy to rest? Whiting thinks so. "We have heard from an overwhelming number of our neighbors since the 'Kitchen Nightmares' experience ... generally, most everyone who objected to the initial trade-marking have embraced our efforts to put the issue behind us," Whiting said in an e-mail.

Maryland is attempting to renege on its obligation to provide sufficient funding to make its historically black colleges and universities (HBCUs) comparable and competitive with other public universities in Maryland in terms of mission, academic program offerings, library services, information technology infrastructure, and other facets of their operations. For five years, the state has vigorously opposed a lawsuit by HBCU students and alumni that seeks to dismantle remnants of the formerly segregated higher education system.

The Seattle Seahawks' Leon Washington has been unable to repeat his prolific season of last year, ranking in the bottom half of the NFL in kick returns thus far and becoming almost an afterthought. Try telling that to the Ravens. “He certainly has our attention,” special teams coordinator Jerry Rosburg said during his weekly briefing Thursday. “We have a lot of respect for him. He's a fine player, and he's another one of those guys who can return the ball on both kick returns and punt returns.
