It smelled like teen spirit in the France-Merrick Performing Arts Center Tuesday night, where a pep rally was held to commemorate the opening night of High School Musical's two-week Baltimore run. There was a squad from the Baltimore Marching Ravens, performing such fare as "Smoke on the Water" and "Louie, Louie." There was a baton-twirler -- Diane Lynn from 101.9 Lite FM. Lynn is a former high school majorette, though she admitted she was hesitant to send her baton skyward. "I'm afraid I'll hit someone on the head," she said.

Baltimore is coming down with a case of Ravens fever, known to cause purple vision and unbridled joy. And the cure is still almost two weeks away. In the meantime, area florists are ordering extra purple flowers. Babies will be swaddled in purple blankets, and adults in freshly printed commemorative T-shirts and Ray Lewis jerseys. Pep rallies are being planned, including one at Saturday's Polar Bear Plunge that will feature the Ravens cheerleading squad and marching band. And what will Ravens die-hards eat but a $250 gold, purple and black cake?

LONG BEACH, Calif. -- At the outset of former Gov. Dick Lamm's speech before the new Reform Party convention here, he thanked party founder Ross Perot for making the day possible, observing that "I wouldn't be here without Ross Perot."That certainly was true. The convention that marked the first of two steps in putting a third presidential candidate into the 1996 presidential election was Mr. Perot's baby, conceived and implemented in his head and with his money. Dick Lamm merely picked up on Mr. Perot's invitation to run amid the Texas billionaire's continued statements that he didn't want to run himself.

Friday night I was fortunate enough to be invited by Binky Jones to his fight party at Canton Station. The party served as both a celebration of Jones' recent success and a pep rally for more good things to come. The party was well-attended by Jones' friends, colleagues from the Youth in Transition alternative school, and teammates at Team Ground Control, as well as students of his from Team Raw Dog. His wife, Sherry, son Savon and daughter Kayla were there, as was Jones' MMA mentor and Ground Control co-owner John Rallo.

WASHINGTON - As members of Congress head home today to face their constituents over the 10-day Memorial Day recess, many Republicans leave anxious about the war in Iraq, disheartened by President Bush's sagging approval ratings and worried that dissent within their party is undercutting their message at a crucial time. With the elections 5 1/2 months away, polls show that gasoline prices have become a rising concern of voters and that the war has left many skeptical of President Bush's policy in Iraq.

The students of Medfield Heights don't have a National Blue Ribbon greeting them at the door or a name that has historically been synonymous with elementary school excellence.

It was just like a pep rally, complete with Baltimore Ravens stunt-performing cheerleaders, the band playing songs to fire up team spirit and the mascot hyping up the crowd. But instead of getting ready for the next big game, the crowd at BWI Marshall Airport Tuesday was getting amped for the newest addition to Baltimore's NFL football team: Ravens 1. The AirTran Airways Boeing 717, unveiled by the Ravens and the airline, is part of a new fleet of NFL team planes being rolled out by AirTran, the second-largest carrier at BWI. The Ravens plane is purple and black, with the team emblem on the tail.

Sean Paul's catchy dancehall-reggae hit "Temperature" rocked the Long Reach High School auditorium yesterday, as two purple spotlights cut through the dimmed room and cheerleaders tossed each other in the air. The student crowd -- many in the school colors of purple and black -- chanted, cheered and screamed. But this was no typical pep rally. The hoopla was in honor of academic achievement and all those present -- 675 of the school's 1,411 -- had earned at least a 3.0 grade point average or improved their grade point average by a half a point in the previous semester.
