When the topic is coffee, a debate always seems a split second away. Obsessives argue over beans, equipment and, of course, where to drink it. We all have favorite spots for different reasons. In Hampden, the picturesque Artifact Coffee plays a whimsical foil to the adventurous, no-frills Spro. The Daily Grind in Fells Point can get you in and out quickly. I have never had a bad cup of anything at the relatively new Tribeca Coffee Roasters in Mount Vernon, either, and that is just to name a percentage of the city's viable options.

HAPPY FAMILIES are all alike; every unhappy family is unhappy in its own way." That's Leo Tolstoy writing in the opening lines of Anna Karenina. But it might as well be Dr. Phil McGraw speaking in the opening minutes of his first prime-time special this week. In Family First, airing tomorrow from 8 p.m. to 10 p.m. on CBS (Channel 13), the tough-love TV therapist made famous by Oprah Winfrey, takes on family problems that are both funny and disturbing. From the hilarious potty-training troubles of celebrity parents to an out-of-control New Jersey family of four, Dr. Phil delivers his bottom line on parenting: It isn't easy.

Spending just a little time around the guys from UFC, you quickly understand that mixed martial arts - and combat sports in general - are not quite set up the same way as your "traditional" sports. If the Orioles want to play in the World Series, they need to make it to the postseason and then win at least two playoff series. They can't just make a bunch of jokes about the Cardinals and expect to see them in the Fall Classic. UFC is set up in a way to showcase the best fighters, of course.

The regulars at Pete's Grill in Waverly always knew when Mr. Phil had arrived.He hung up his battered gray coat, set his cane against the wall and deposited one or two plastic grocery bags on the floor. The sacks contained some cans of peaches, maybe a roll of paper towels and a jar of Sunsweet prune juice.Then, at the height of February's treacherous weather, he stopped coming. Word reached Louis and Charmain Sharkey, the restaurant's owners, that their long-time customer had died Feb. 28 of a heart attack at the Baltimore VA Medical Center.

Let's begin today with a confession. I don't get to watch a lot of afternoon TV, mainly because of my incredible devotion to this job, the readers of this column, the listeners who can't possibly get through the day without hearing one of my podcasts, etc. But on the rare occasions that I'm home on a weekday, kicking back with a 101-degree fever, say, or a nasty stomach virus, there's only one place to turn for cheap entertainment: Dr. Phil. It's easy to see why Dr. Phil McGraw is the hottest self-help guru around.

There are few relationships as dysfunctional as the Ravens and Pittsburgh Steelers. So who better to figure this out than Dr. Phil McGraw? I'm glad I got you when I did, Dr. Phil. A group of men from Pittsburgh are about to square off with a group of men from here in Baltimore. Needless to say, the sides are not fond of each other. In fact, each side wants to make sure the other isn't even alive a couple of weeks from now. Don't these sound like prime candidates for mediation or counseling?

The 2004 campaign veered from the swing states to the surreal state of daytime television yesterday as John Kerry, following the president, submitted to a therapy session with on-air psychologist Dr. Phil. During a one-hour Dr. Phil segment, Kerry confided to the TV psychologist that there was a period in his childhood when he was crying and homesick because his family moved around too much. Last week, President Bush told the self-help guru that his father's love made it OK if he tried something new and failed.

Watching Monday's General George Handicap from New York, trainer Rick Dutrow had one word to sum up the results: "Beautiful. " "I loved it," Dutrow said by cell phone after his two runners - favorite Yawanna Twist and fourth choice This Ones for Phil - came home first and second in the $200,000 Grade II race at Laurel Park. Toby's Corner, last year's pre-Kentucky Derby favorite, took third and Eighttofasttocatch was fourth. Ridden by former Maryland-based jockey Mike Luzzi, Yawanna Twist, a 5-year-old bay who finished fourth in the 2010 Preakness Stakes, broke well and found his way into position behind This Ones for Phil, who sprinted to a clear, early lead.

Sara Brinkman had never seen The Dr. Keith Ablow Show, but friends had described the host of the hot new self-help program as "Dr. Phil with an edge." That was enough to convince the Kansas City, Kan., resident that the TV therapist was just what her family needed. Brinkman sent the show an e-mail requesting that Ablow help her and her sisters, Kristin and Amy, salvage a disastrous relationship with their father, Larry. The women claimed that he berated and physically abused them as children, sometimes yanking Amy's hair.

Don't laugh -- I'm so serious here. You need Jell-O shots in your life. Especially right here, right now when everyone is running out of bar options, grasping at anything that isn't bleak, ice-covered or slushy. So that means the fancy spots and go-to bars are packed, teeming with country-folk-turned-locals or just locals seeking shelter to drink away their January boredom and fend off the stir crazy. The most annoying part is the neighborhood bar you love for being quirky that's filled with that one guy who brought 20 of his out-of-town frat brothers in for a visit because what else is going on right now. I'm looking at you, Walt's.

One mark of a good song is that it makes Billboard's top 10 list. An even greater indicator is its staying power; whether it is remembered decades after it was a hit. Perhaps the highest accolade is whether the artist influences other musicians. All of these standards were met by the singing duo the Everly Brothers, one of whom, Phil, has died days shy of his 75th birthday. At age 16 I was a disc jockey for a suburban Washington, D.C., radio station. I hosted a weekend music program called "The Top Fifty Show.

Fair warning: This is about the "Duck Dynasty" controversy. Yes, I know. I'm sick of it, too. Still, relying upon my First Amendment right to freedom of speech, I will make a few observations about Phil Robertson, the grizzled Louisiana duck hunter turned reality TV star whose comments about black and gay people recently got him suspended -- and then unsuspended -- by A&E.

On Feb. 9, Juan Dixon scored 31 points to help Maryland upset Duke. Two days later, his family celebrated an equally stirring achievement -- the graduation of Dixon's older brother, Phil III, from the Baltimore City Police Academy. A 152-pound college basketball star, a rookie patrolman in Northwest Baltimore, an inspiration for a city. If Phil and Juan can make it, then why can't Baltimore's crime rate be reduced, or its children educated? If Phil and Juan can make it, why can't their hometown be a better place?

It was one of the shortest and most meaningless suspensions in the history of television. So, why did A&E bow down to Phil Robertson and his Louisiana clan so shamelessly, after his ignorant and insulting comments about gays and African-Americans? Howie Kurtz, host of "Media Buzz," and I tackled that question Sunday on Kurtz's Fox News media review show. Here's the video. Check it out and let me know what you think. And, what Robertson said is neither a free speech issue nor irrefutably sanctioned by The Bible.
