Even the staunchest admirers of corporate CEOs — you know, the star-struck junior executives who buy the ghost-written biographies and how-to-manage books — will have to admit that there's something downright cathartic about seeing oil company executives grilled by a congressional committee when gasoline prices hit $4 per gallon. Try as they might to defend $35 billion in profits in the first quarter alone, the CEOs presented a thoroughly unconvincing case for why their industry should be subsidized through tax breaks.

Power Plant Live's first barbecue and bourbon event back in April was apparently so well received that it's now going to be a semi-annual thing.  Fall Charm City Pig & Swig II has been scheduled for Saturday, Oct. 12, 2 p.m. to 6 p.m. at Power Plant Live, 34 Market Place. The afternoon event will include sampling of more than 60 bourbons and beers, a Cajun-style pig roast, food trucks, live music and a cigar party on the Mex Tequila Bar deck. Tickets, which are available through Missiontix , are $35 in advance and include a souvenir tasting glass and a bag of swag from sponsoring bourbon brands.

Maryland's Republican Party seems to be solidly behind presumptive GOP presidential nominee Mitt Romney, but the party raised some eyebrows today with an email solicitation. The missive advertises an upcoming pig roast. Among expected attendees it lists "our Romeny delegation to Tampa. " "It is simple error," said GOP Executive Director David Ferguson. "Maybe you should find something better to do. " Perhaps he's right. But it is a good thing for the GOP that the presidential race in Maryland won't be decided by write-in.

OCEAN CITY -- They've been coming to the same downtown hotel for weekends, holidays and vacations since before they were married in 1957. And Labor Day 1995 is no exception for Pete and Betty Cloud, whose history at the Belmont-Hearne on Dorchester Street stretches back almost four decades.The shaded front porch with the white rockers and the view of the Boardwalk still draws them down the three flights of stairs from Room 38, "their" room. No matter that they own a condo over at Harbor Island -- they rent that out to others.

DUNBARTON, N.H. -- Jean Dimock caught up with Sen. Phil Gramm near the stand selling "Clinocchio" T-shirts."You're going to keep your pro-life stand?" she asked. The Texas Republican assured her he would."You're going to stick with the Republican platform?" she continued. Mr. Gramm once again assured her he would.That done, Ms. Dimock peered around the crowd for another presidential candidate to buttonhole. Asked if she had decided whom to back, she shook her head as if in horror. She still had to talk to several of them, she said, and then study their voting records.

THE SCHOOL YEAR is ending, and all across the nation -- around the world, for that matter -- the Flat Stanley children are coming home to report on their adventures. Jeff Brown couldn't be happier, and neither could a few hundred primary school teachers and thousands of kids between the ages of 4 and 8 from the Azores to Zimbabwe, not to mention the Grace and St. Peter's School in Baltimore. Brown is the author of the delightful 1964 children's book, Flat Stanley, about a little boy named Stanley Lambchop who is squashed by a falling bulletin board, leaving him depth-disadvantaged.

Amanda Dell is an award-winning public speaker who has known for years that she wants to make her living in politics. But she was shocked when Carroll Commissioner Donald I. Dell, a distant cousin whom she knew mainly through hunting foxes on his land, asked her to manage his re-election campaign. After all, she's only 18. "I didn't want any of my actions to hurt him," said the University of Maryland freshman. "I'm just a kid, and I don't know what I'm talking about." Two months later, Donald Dell, 77, doesn't regret drafting an unusually young campaign manager.
