A small Gulfstream private jet overshot a runway Monday night at Baltimore-Washington Thurgood Marshall International Airport, causing no injuries to the two people aboard and no delays to commercial flights. Jonathan Dean, a spokesman for the Maryland Aviation Administration, said the incident occurred shortly before 7 p.m. on the general aviation runway, which is not used by much larger, commercial planes. Dean said the Gulfstream came to a stop in grass and as of 7:30 p.m. was stuck, with some damage to its landing gear.

I always have to laugh when I read Robert L. Ehrlich Jr.'s column in your paper. He's always pitching his fantasy of the Republican party as the champion of "small business," when in fact we all know the Republican party is the champion of big, multinational corporations, not small businesses. ( "Building a business is bad under Obama," May 11.) A more truthful storyline would be if Bob Ehrlich's "Nancy" were to try to start a small business selling "widgets" only to run up against "Widgicorp," a huge multinational corporation with a Super PAC at the ready to lobby Congress.

Everybody's got something. Maybe it's something you were born with, maybe something that happened to you, maybe something you did to yourself through bad habits or neglect. But everybody's got something, some physical or emotional blemish measuring the distance from you to perfection. Maybe you're a short guy or a gawky woman. Maybe you're ugly. Maybe you've got cellulite, depression, anorexia, alcoholism, gingivitis, psoriasis or a big nose. Maybe you're fat. Gabourey Sidibe is fat. Morbidly obese, to be exact.

It's over, America. The breaking news alerts, the Twitter speculation wars, the aerial shots of the big guy being whisked from private jet to late-model, tinted-window SUV, the grainy photos of him meeting with the rich-guy NFL owner du jour -- all of it comes to a merciful end. Yes, wonderful news: Peyton Manning has found a job. He'll quarterback the Denver Broncos next year. (That thumping sound you just heard was Tim Tebow being tossed out the back door of the Broncos' complex like the morning's trash.)

How many degrees of separation are there between actor Kevin Bacon and the University of Maryland? Come April, just one. As part of a "Do Good" challenge, Bacon is asking College Park students to design projects aimed at promoting positive social change. Bacon and a panel of yet-to-be-named celebrity judges will pick the best projects from among six finalists during what is being billed as an "American Idol"-style competition April 18, with prizes going to the winners. "It's a small world, and it's easier to do good than you think," Bacon says in a recruitment video unveiled over the weekend at a Terps basketball game.

Phil Mickelson pulled out of the Memorial Tournamenton Thursday after shooting a first-round 79. He didn't make any excuses. He didn't say that his well-documented psoriatic arthritisflared up or that he had tweaked the wrist that has given him problems over the years. He blamed it on being tired from the European vacation that he and his wife Amy had taken last week and that he had not come prepared to play in the tournament hosted by the legendary Jack Nicklaus. Mickelson said he needed to spend more time on the range with his swing coach, Butch Harmon, before theU.S.

President Barack Obama's news conference Wednesday - his first in 15 weeks - made clear his strategy for reelection is the same old clarion call for class warfare, pitting the evil rich against the saintly poor. "I think it's only fair," said the president, "to ask an oil company or a corporate jet owner that's doing so well to give up that tax break. …I don't think that's so radical. " In fact, he mentioned "corporate jet owners" half a dozen times during his appearance.

Ed Reed sure seems to be serious about exploring his options on the open market. As I write this, the free-agent safety is in Houston, where the Texans have rolled out the red carpet for the likely future Hall-of-Famer. They scooped him up in a private jet and scurried him to Reliant Stadium, where he was greeted by video cameras, microphones and a group of Houston media. Surely, Reed feels wanted right now. And surely, that means something to the 34-year-old, who has always had a sizable chip on his shoulder.

News item: The Orioles managerial search continues to move at a snail's pace, and Andy MacPhail has left open the possibility that it could be weeks before we know who will be the next permanent manager. My take: When you take a "wait and see" approach, you're really deciding to let the decision make itself, which would be fine if this frog hadn't already been in the frying pan for the past 12 1/2 years. News item: Marc Bulger said during a conference call Thursday that he's comfortable with his new role as the backup and mentor to Ravens starting quarterback Joe Flacco.
