The Baltimore rock scene lost another band today. Ponytail, one of the city's most celebrated art-rock bands, announced its break up via a statement from Sir James Winnie of We Are Free Management, according to Stereogum . The band went on a hiatus last year, but came back to release Do Whatever you Want all the Time in April. But this time, it sounds like it's the end for good, based on pragmatic reasons: the members simply live all over the country, making it too difficult to tour.

Bands come and go all of the time, but they are not all created equal. We were reminded of this not once, not twice, but three times in recent months, when three of Baltimore's most celebrated and seasoned acts announced their breakups. The Bridge, a bluesy staple of Federal Hill's 8x10 that eventually made it to the Bonnaroo and All Good music festivals, called it quits first via a letter on its website, placing the blame on the economy. "We were losing money, burning ourselves out and it wasn't translating into more people at the shows," singer Cris Jacobs says later.

"I highly recommend the book 'Satchel Paige' by Lesa Cline-Ransome. It's a fun story about the life and times of a great man and a terrific baseball player. He made some bad choices as a boy, but adults cared for him and helped him straighten up." -- G. Lowell Swain, Winand Elementary "In 'Stephanie's Ponytail' by Robert N.

Bastrop, Texas -- Folks here crinkle their faces at the mere mention of his name. Some curse him. Others rue the day he moved to this conservative cattle town 35 miles from Austin.The object of all that scorn? A chunky 12-year-old boy named Zachariah Toungate, who spent part of third grade being taught in an isolated room because he refused to agree to demands by school administrators to cut off his ponytail. After four years, he still won't."I don't care what they think, I'm not going to cut it," says a defiant Zach, clasping the 15-inch lock of blond hair that has made him a virtual outcast in Bastrop, but a cause celebre around the world.

Morgan Jones couldn't hold back the tears. Ten inches of her brown locks that she had carefully grown and groomed for four years were gone with a decisive snip of the scissors. "Oh, my hair," the misty-eyed teenager cried as she held her severed ponytail. Her mom and her friends surrounded her, giving reassuring hugs. Jones is one of the organizers of the Locks of Love campaign at Harford Technical High School, which continues throughout this week. People who have at least 10 inches of hair can donate their locks and get a free haircut and styling from Harford Tech's cosmetology students.

The familiar gathering of employees around the water cooler to exchange the latest delicious gossip and to mutter seditious remarks about management is an outdated, unfair stereotype.After all, it's almost the year 2000 and practically everything in the workplace has a futuristic spin to it. For instance, everyone knows workers do not gather around the water cooler, which has dried up as a meeting place.Instead, they gather around the fax machine. They stand there and talk for very worthy reasons:They sincerely want to be part of their office's informal and instantaneous communication system no worker can afford to ignore, according to advice from the best-informed career counselors; and, of course, to exchange the latest delicious DTC gossip (now upgraded and known as networking)

Dustin Wong was in labor. It felt like he was in labor, anyway. It was his 27th birthday and he was straddling a monster, shroom-inspired psychedelic trip that made him think he was about to give birth. This was a year ago. He was in his Mount Vernon apartment, went to his bed, lay back and pushed. "I felt this love, and I kept repeating that," he said. "That's where the name 'Infinite Love' came from. " Wong's name might not sound familiar. But if you've been going to shows in Baltimore in the past 10 years, chances are you saw him play at some point.

The new musical that's moved into Washington - New All-Star Cast! New And Cooler Songs! Awesome Dance Numbers! - has bumped the old attractions off the avenue. The wax museum of Ann Coulter, the Fox vaudeville acts, the woofing of Rush Limbaugh and Bill O'Reilly - they're playing the VFW circuit now. When Barack and Michelle walked down Pennsylvania Avenue on Inauguration Day, you could tell just by looking at them that the photographers are not going to be lying in wait for Sarah Palin just now. You heard the sudden sucking sound of vanishing celebrity, but it's not the worst thing that can happen to a person.

On a typical night, the audience in the concert room at the Ram's Head Tavern in Annapolis sips and chews to the sounds of jazz vocalist Dianne Schuur, a vintage pop artist like Richie Havens or Dr. Hochman's Dynamic Dixieland Band. At the Prism, a coffeehouse in Charlottesville, Va., Celtic, bluegrass and folk music from Islamic countries are the norm. Groups like Clumsy Lovers, the Lawnmowers and the Gourds ordinarily strut their stuff onstage for happy crowds at Seattle's Tractor Tavern, home to rockabilly, alternative country, "psychodelia" and zydeco.

Few who saw it will ever forget it. The sight of a coach cutting off his wrestler's hair during a timeout is something so rare it may never have happened before.But it happened last season to Oakland Mills' John Nguyen. The loss of his cherished long hair proved the price he had to pay to win his regional semifinal grudge match against Wilde Lake's Alex Hernandez. And Nguyen paid it -- albeit reluctantly.Nguyen, a tri-captain with a 20-3 record, is one of the most reliable wrestlers this season for the Scorpions, who have an 8-4 overall record and 6-1 league mark.
