Wouldn't you know that it was Mrs. Reverend Briscoe who would tell Wimsey Jump that his wife Hagar and Professor Shepherd were doing something un-Christian down to the P.O. when the window is closed at lunchtime? Professor Shepherd, as we know, was teaching Good Literature when he lost his tenure at the college and had to start living on his boat down to the harbor, where things have been going downhill ever since.We used to have the post office in the front room at old Miss Inez Bugg's house on Black Dog Road, but after she retired and moved to Arbutus to live with her daughter, the government built us the present P.O., which is an ugly red brick building with a flag out in front.

This week, the Washington Post is running a series on how police work to seize cash during car stops without a warrant or making an arrest -- and data compiled by the paper suggests Baltimore City and Baltimore County police are among the biggest financial beneficiaries of the controversial tactic. Under a federal program, police departments can get payouts when they seize cash. And since 2001 the two Maryland departments each received $7 million taken from motorists and others, according to the Post's analysis.

Garrison Keillor lounged by a backyard pool, sipping a glass of wine. Isaac Bashevis Singer sat at a dining room table and ate homemade pea soup. Edward Albee arrived with a new boyfriend in tow. Over the past four decades, the likes of Larry McMurtry, Frank McCourt, Grace Paley and Lucille Clifton, along with a dozen or so other well-known authors and poets, have made themselves at home during visits to Columbia. Many of them lingered after their readings to share a meal, and some even stayed on as overnight houseguests.

Tong Po is out, Tank might be in.The Kentucky Derby status of two Maryland-bred colts changed dramatically over the weekend.Tong Po, who had been training forwardly at Aqueduct for Saturday's Wood Memorial, pulled up with a sore shin in his right foreleg after a routine gallop on Saturday and is definitely out of the Derby.In fact, he's already back at Pimlico and is not expected to race again until the Saratoga, N.Y., meet in August.Meanwhile, Tank, another Maryland-bred colt who was expected to bypass the Derby for the Preakness, now might go to Louisville after a 7 1/2 -length victory Saturday in the Garden State Stakes.

Tong Po unleashed a searing rally turning for home and went on to a stunning victory in the $175,000 Federico Tesio Stakes at Pimlico Race Course yesterday.The colt was making just his third career start, but he won Maryland's only major Triple Crown prep by an emphatic eight lengths as the longest shot (31-1) in a field of six."I always said this was a good colt," his trainer, 58-year-old Leon Blusiewicz, said afterward.The rest of the Tesio field finished in near-inverse order of favoritism: Haymaker, the 2-5 favorite, finished last, and King Mutesa, the 5-2 second choice, finished fourth.

For the last two weeks, Leon Blusiewicz has been living in a hotel in Garden City, Long Island, plotting a dream.The 59-year-old trainer, known simply as "Blue," is Kentucky Derby bound, by way of New York.At least, that's the best case scenario.Blue trains a lightly raced colt named Tong Po, and until a few weeks ago, no one knew much about this horse with the unusual name, which means "golden tree" in Thai.That's when the dark bay colt, born and raised at Green Willow Farm near Westminster and bred and owned by Bob and Lorraine Quinichett of Silver Spring, took off at the quarter pole leading into Pimlico's long stretch and drew away to an eight-length win in the $175,000 Federico Tesio Stakes.

P&O Princess Cruises PLC said yesterday that it will hold the shareholder vote on its proposed purchase of Royal Caribbean Cruises Ltd. in February instead of next month to give Carnival Corp. a chance to improve its bid for P&O. At the same time, London-based P&O Princess reaffirmed its commitment to buy Royal Caribbean Ltd. for $7.4 billion in stock and debt to become the No. 1 cruise ship company, after rejecting a $6 billion takeover bid by Carnival this week. P&O Princess scheduled the shareholder meeting for Feb. 14 to give investors additional time to consider the acquisition and to give Carnival a chance to offer a "more valuable transaction."

You can still cut the tension with a knife … which there are plenty of, because it's "Top Chef. " We join the chefs recapping what went down last week with Nicholas' immunity debacle. Some chefs are pissed and other get that this is a game and would have done the same thing. This is a game, after all. Back in the "Top Chef" kitchen, the cheftestants are joined by Padma and Chef Roy Choi to announce this week's QuickFire Challenge. Chef Roy (aka the King of food trucks) explains how he started the food-truck revolution in Los Angeles and how they become known for their tacos.  In NOLA, their street food of choice comes in the form of a good old Po' Boy. For this week's challenge, the chefs have 20 minutes to create a unique and personalized Po' Boy of their own. The winner will get immunity, which, as we learned last week, is now more important than ever for remaining on the show and for getting everyone mad at you. After the quick 20 minutes are up, Padma and Roy visit each chef to see what they have come up with.  Nicholas makes a shrimp Po' Boy with fennel and pancetta.

“Attention, attention … the mic is now open.” It is only fitting that Derrick Weston Brown begins his presentation at local high schools with an original poem beckoning “all poets and lovers of the word.” “Poetry is for everybody,” Brown, 36, tells the students at Mt. Hebron High School in Ellicott City. “Everyone is born a poet, but society takes that away.” As the writer-in-residence for the Howard County Poetry and Literature Society (HoCoPoLitSo), Brown's goal is to nurture young poets in the area.

It takes so long to say the name of the Howard County Poetry and Literature Society that one can be thankful that everybody just refers to it as HoCoPoLitSo. One of this literary organization's longest running and most popular activities is an annual Irish Evening that features a reading by a celebrated author, an opportunity to have books signed, live music and, of course, Irish coffee. This year's event promises to live up to that lively tradition. Memoirist and novelist Hugo Hamilton is the guest speaker for the 34th Irish Evening Friday, Feb. 17 at 7:30 p.m. at Howard Community College's Smith Theatre.

My husband and I have long used a post office box at the Roland Park post office for business mail. Our street address includes the letter “B,” which presents a problem for mail sorters and carriers, who don't know that our house is separate from the one next door with identical numbers, but no letter. The post office box has always been a prompt way to receive mail until recently. Mail addressed to our box now seems to arrive later than mail that comes to the house.

Anthony Daniels admits that being a pop icon can get old. But the man who played the gleaming gold robot C-3PO in all six "Star Wars" movies is by no means complaining. When hundreds of thousands of people have been so touched by your work, it's hard to stay too down. "Yes, there were times when it felt old, and almost - I'm going to use the word 'embarrassing,' without meaning to be unkind," says the 63-year-old British actor, who will be at 1st Mariner Arena Wednesday night to serve as narrator for "Star Wars in Concert," a multimedia presentation of John Williams' Oscar-winning scores, complete with orchestra, a huge movie screen and all manner of light effects.

Goodson ran for 153 yards on 17 carries and scored two touchdowns before he left the game with a shoulder injury early in the quarter. Shortly thereafter, Ali-El, who ran for 131 yards and one touchdown on 15 carries, went to the hospital to be checked out for a possible concussion.
