Every Republican is the Maryland Senate is now equally perfect in the eyes of a conservative business advocacy group that annually ranks the votes of state legislators. In its annual Roll Call report, Maryland Business for Responsive Government, gives every member of the GOP caucus a 100 percent score for votes during this year's regular and special sessions. The total GOP solidarity on this year's rated votes stands in contrast with last year's squishily moderate performance, when two GOP senators scored in the 80s. The good news for MBRG is that the Republicans were rock-solid in their support this year.

Helen Gao is one of only 12 students in the world to earn a perfect score on the Advanced Placement Macro Economics test this past May. The 18-year-old Princeton University freshman graduated from Dulaney High School in Baltimore County last June and says she is considering majoring in economics. The College Board recently notified Dulaney and Gao's parents of her accomplishment.   "She is very humble young lady," said Phil Bressler, who taught her economics at Dulaney.

I miss one week and there was "Game of Thrones" shenanigans and they didn't kick anybody off? I can't turn my back on the mirror ball for a second. Tonight starts with a pros/troupe routine that has a song my parents probably hated and a lot of neon. So, a total miss for the entire Watts family. Brooke is wearing what appears to be lace accented with electrical tape. I double-dog-dare her to try and sit down in that thing.  Tom Bergeron says that next week's guest judge will be Cher.

Sarah Guynn joined an elite club this past fall when she scored 1,600 -- the highest possible score -- on the SAT. Only 541 of 2.3 million test-takers in 2000 matched her achievement.

Every generation deserves its Breakfast Club. This one can do better than The Perfect Score, even if its cast does include hot-young-actress-of-the-moment Scarlett Johansson. The Breakfast Club, about a group of high school kids in detention fighting adults' condescending attitude toward them, was one of those seminal films that burns its way onto a generation's psyche, a clarion call for understanding and identity, a plea by a younger generation for its elders to give them a break. Written and directed by John Hughes at the height of his abilities, its charismatic young cast (including Molly Ringwald, Emilio Estevez, Ally Sheedy and Anthony Michael Hall)

" Highlights from last night -- let's see if they show us anything we didn't see last night. Ok, I don't remember seeing Zendaya's parents' reaction to her perfect score.

A proposal to require restaurants and bars to post letter grades rating their performance in city health inspections has some business owners worried they may lose customers if inspectors give their establishments a less than perfect score. But giving people access to information that allows them to judge how food and beverage venues stack up against each other in terms of cleanliness has worked in other cities, and there's no reason consumers here shouldn't be able to make the same sort of comparisons.

The coalition looked at votes on eight key bills, including identify theft protection for children, tax on smokeless tobacco and small cigars, early mediation for foreclosures and a foreclosed property registry.
