WASHINGTON -- The Maryland men's basketball team absorbed its first jolt of the season last night in the annual BB&T Classic. While showing little of the passion and precision that got them through tough tests against Michigan State and Illinois away from home, the 23rd-ranked Terrapins floundered in the second half at Verizon Center and became the fifth straight victim of Notre Dame, 81-74. Fordham @Maryland Wednesday, 8 p.m., 1300 AM, 105.7 FM

Does the president think the world is a TV show? One of the things you learn watching television as a kid is that the hero wins. No matter how dire things look, the star is going to be OK. MacGyver always defuses the bomb with some saltwater taffy before the timer reaches zero. There was no way Fonzie was going to mess up his water-ski jump and get devoured by sharks. Life doesn't actually work like that. That's one reason HBO's "Game of Thrones" is so compelling. Despite being set in an absurd fantasy world of giants, dragons and ice zombies, it's more realistic than a lot of dramas set in a more plausible universe in at least one regard.

Opponents of a Somerset County wind energy facility pushed forward with a House proposal to slow the project Saturday, a victory for Southern Maryland over the Eastern Shore in a rare contest of rural regions. On a 40-80 vote, the House defeated an amendment that would have weakened a bill to impose a 15-month delay on the construction of high turbines for the Eastern Shore project. Lawmakers from Southern Maryland -- across the Chesapeake Bay -- are concerned about how the wind facility would affect Patuxent Naval Air Station,  one of the state's largest military bases and the economic engine of that region.

This is a quiet time of year at Sandy Point State Park, where the marina is closed for the season and visitors to the beach are few. The recreation area, which bus tles during the warm summer months, has been transformed into a place where brisk temperatures, stark light and a reflective mood prevail.

Nearly 85 percent of the state is now in moderate to severe drought. That's up from just 37 percent last week, and it's the most widespread Maryland drought since October 2005. Data issued Thursday by the U.S. Department of Agriculture shows "severe" conditions prevail in Charles, St. Mary's and southern Calvert counties. "Moderate drought" extends from eastern Allegany County, across southern Baltimore County to the Lower Shore. "Abnormally dry" conditions continue in the state's far west and northeast.

Garrison Keillor: In your commentary of Jan. 20 ("Despite all the screaming, common sense will prevail"), you were right -- common sense did prevail in Massachusetts on Tuesday night. It's funny how history does repeat itself. While you ignore and ridicule the Tea Partiers as hollering and waving their arms and having "paranoid hallucinations of the right," their message has again been heard as the "shot heard 'round the world." The only folks that havent heard the message are you, the current occupant of the White House, House Speaker Nancy Pelosi and Senate Majority Leader Harry Reid.

By nearly a 2-to-1 margin, respondents to "It's Your Call" correctly predicted that Duke would defeat Kansas in last night's NCAA championship basketball game.In balloting that was cut off at 9 last night, 211 of the 322 callers (66 percent) said Duke would prevail after leaving the Final Four empty-handed four of the last five years. The other 111 respondents (34 percent) backed Kansas."It's Your Call" represents a sampling of opinions from certain segments of the community, but it is not balanced demographically, as would be done in a scientific public opinion poll.

ONCE AGAIN the Constitution is under assault by politicians seeking a so-called Balanced Budget Amendment. What is worrisome is that one of these years, maybe even this year, this exercise in dishonesty and irresponsibility will prevail as Washington seeks cover from fiscal problems it would rather ignore. So it is time to get back in the trenches, call up the reserves and do battle against those who would sully the Constitution with an amendment that substitutes economic lunacy for normal legislative procedure.

After a five-year hiatus, the River Hill boys soccer program is headed back to the state final four. In penalty kicks, after 100 minutes of scoreless action Tuesday night, Hawks goalie Tomas Potts came through with a pair of diving stops to help River Hill outlast Mt. Hebron, 5-4, and capture the year's 3A East region title. "I went out there thinking that it was on me. For our five seniors and our entire team that was looking at me, it was on me to make a play," said Potts, who was also in goal just four days earlier when River Hill defeated Reservoir in penalty kicks.

Many present-day Republicans seem bent on making "Backward, Christian Soldiers" their marching song in their relentless determination to "repeal and replace Obamacare," even to the point of repeating their lemming-like plunge over the cliff of another government shutdown. More than 60 of them in the House and about a dozen in the Senate have signed letters by conservative GOP Sen. Mike Lee of Utah and Rep. Mark Meadows of North Carolina pledging to vote to defund President Barack Obama's Affordable Care Act, despite some party warnings of likely political suicide.

At the height of the Baltimore Pride event Saturday, the song "We Are Family" played over the parade's speakers. Spectators lining North Charles Street called the song a fitting anthem, despite a recent dispute among community leaders about the spirit of the event. "This is the annual family reunion," said Erika Marie, 26, of Harford County, who attended in support of a friend. Days before the event, local business owners and other community leaders argued over whether the event — which has drawn thousands to celebrate the lesbian, gay, bisexual and transgender community since 1977 — has become sullied by problems such as underage drinking and public urination in Mount Vernon.

Back in the late 1950s, when I was in the seventh grade, I brought a deadly weapon to school. One morning, into the pocket of my Catholic school uniform, I slipped a knife. I then said good-bye to my mother and got on the bus for St. Ambrose School in Bridgeport, Conn. Although I knew that bringing the knife to school probably was testing the limits of acceptable behavior, I also knew that owning the knife was perfectly fine. Otherwise, my father would not have given it to me. A few months earlier, the knife had been my Christmas present from him. I remember folding back layers of tissue from an oddly shaped gift that clearly wasn't a pair of mittens or a book, until suddenly, the last layer of tissue gone, there it was - a knife!

I was very happy to see that additional development was barred at Green Spring Station and that common sense prevailed in our county's decision making. Anyone who travels through this intersection during the week days, especially rush hours, can tell you this is a failing intersection that it fully deserves its "F" rating. To those legislators who upgraded it as a "D" rating, I would suggest that without major improvements in place beforehand, any further development at Green Spring Station would overnight decrease its rating to a "F". For this reason, I believe the restriction that prohibits development only near "F" rated intersections should be expanded to include "D" rated roadways and intersections; this is only common sense, guys.

How refreshing and thrilling it is to hear good news from Iraq. The release yesterday of Jill Carroll, the Christian Science Monitor correspondent kidnapped Jan. 7, shows that vicious brutality need not always prevail - that good will and good intentions and good sense, and patience and hard work, can still sometimes make things turn out right, even in the caldron that Iraq has become. Ms. Carroll says she was treated well, and whoever her captors were, they decided in the end that they no longer cared to hold her. They may have been moved by human sympathy or by cold political calculation, but in any case she's free.

Yonkers, New York. -- As we mark the 50th anniversary of World War II's conclusion, the temptation is to treat victory as somehow inevitable. Those who were there know better.Five years prior to victory, one man peered across Europe and saw anything but cause for optimism:''Behind us . . . gather a group of shattered states and bludgeoned races: the Czechs, the Poles, the Danes, the Norwegians, the Belgians, the Dutch -- upon all of whom a long dark night of barbarism will descend.''In June 1940, France joined the legion of conquered nations, and only Britain stood geographically between Hitler and America.

I am outraged at the hubris of Congress to vote in favor of the out-of-touch NRA over the wishes of the vast majority of the public who elected them ("Tyranny of the minority," April 19). We are the only civilized country on this planet that allows unrestricted access to military-style weapons that were specifically designed to kill as many people as possible as fast as possible. And it shows: In Europe, the rate of mass shootings is a fraction of what it is in the U.S., even controlling for differences in the population size.
