Punch is back on the restaurant scene in Baltimore, but be careful. It packs one. America's oldest cocktail, that mix of spirits, tea, sweet, sour and bitter, is finding a fresh start in the shot glasses and shakers of some of the city's most creative mixologists. Served in charming vessels for the table to share, punch is proving to be a flavorful avenue to appreciating the cocktail for those who might be put off by the strength of the Manhattan or the martini. "I've always wanted to do punch on a menu," said Brendan Dorr, the "bar chef" of B&O American Brasserie on Charles Street.

If you are wondering how fallout from the Ray Rice elevator attack might affect the Ravens image, check out this "Saturday Night Live" skit depicting the team as criminals. The Carolina Panthers, the team the Ravens play Sunday, was satirized in the same way last night, as well as the NFL and CBS Sports Jim Nantz and Phil Simms for their handling of the scandal. It's disingenuous for SNL to be mocking CBS and not its own NBC Sports, which has the biggest NFL show on TV in "Sunday Night Football.

Punch, the satirical weekly founded in London in 1841, will produce its last issue this week. It is losing too much money to be funny.Punch was irreverent, sardonic, mild, subtle, gentle, tasteful and upper class. Humor is alive and well but it tends to be vulgar, crass, loud and insistent, as well as irreverent, sardonic and cutting. Punch could not compete on those terms and be Punch. Some said it ceased being Punch years ago.In its day, Punch was the greatest repository of cartoons anywhere.

Ravens rookie inside linebacker C.J. Mosley is learning quickly that the retaliator is the one who typically gets caught in NFL altercations. Blocked after the whistle had blown by Cleveland Browns center Alex Mack, Mosley slugged the Pro Bowl blocker with a left hook that sent Mack flailing to the ground. Mosley was flagged for unnecessary roughness while Mack wasn't penalized. Now, Mosley is bracing for a fine from the league office. The first-round draft pick from Alabama was previously fined $8,268 for a late hit on Cincinnati Bengals running back Giovani Bernard in his first NFL game.

In walks Tisha Edwards, a parade of teenagers in her wake. The conference room in Baltimore school headquarters is full of staff and community stakeholders there to tell the new interim schools CEO what she wants to know. But she introduces the half-dozen "special guests" who will tell her what she needs to hear. "I feel like students give me the best advice, because they're not on the payroll," she tells the work group on the student dress code. "They'll tell me how it really is. " That up-front style, many say, has made Edwards a competent if sometimes divisive figure since she became former schools CEO Andrés Alonso's right-hand woman four years ago. As his chief of staff, she worked behind the scenes to orchestrate details of the largest reforms the district had seen in decades.

At recess, locked in a spirited game of punchball, I forgot about my hair, my clothes and just where I fit into junior high school. Everybody forgot about everything else when we played punch.Punchball may have been strictly a Baltimore pastime. It was a sort of poor man's baseball; all that was necessary to play was a ''pinky'' -- a rubber ball about the size of a tennis ball. Pinkies may have been tennis balls shaved to their smooth, pink skin.We got terribly involved in playing punch, and we screamed at each other whole-heartedly about the rules.

HATRED IS a beautiful thing, and as I stood in the supermarket checkout line behind the woman in the red ski jacket, I could feel my loathing for her growing steadily.The sign above our heads read: "Express line -- 10 items or less." The woman had 13 items in her shopping cart. I counted them. That's the kind of thing I do in checkout lines.Other people smack their kids or thumb through those stupid tabloids ("Woman Raised By Wolves Asks: What Do I Tell My Fiance?!")Me, I sit there counting how many items others have in their carts.

I enjoyed reading and agree with Jerome Israel's commentary "The U.S. needs Russia" (Aug. 23) At a time when the entire Middle East is in chaos and aflame, it seems strange that U.S. leaders would pick a fight with Russia over Ukraine that could lead to another world war. We need to put our feet in the shoes of the Russians in order to realize why they are so upset. NATO has adopted a very aggressive stance toward Russia ever since the fall of the Berlin Wall. The alliance, which should have been disbanded in 1989, has marched relentlessly eastward, absorbing former Soviet satellites.

Batts and his three-member security detail arrested Alante Moultrie, 20, on May 16 in the 2300 block of E. Monument St., shortly after they left the scene of a police-involved shooting.

Ian Kinsler broke up a tight 2-1 game in the eighth inning with a two-run homer to left field. Kinsler took his time admiring the homer and then rounded the bases in 24 seconds, not a stroll but not a sprint either. We'll never know for sure, but you have to think Orioles pitcher Bud Norris, who had pitched a gem up to that point, didn't like Kinsler's home run trot. It could be a coincidence, but two pitches later, Norris hit Torii Hunter with a 94-mph fastball. "I don't know.

Salisbury coach Jim Berkman is as candid as any coach in lacrosse. That honesty came through as he discussed the No. 2 Sea Gulls' surprising 8-7 overtime loss to Capital Athletic Conference foe Christopher Newport on Wednesday. “We didn't get it done on Wednesday,” Berkman said Friday morning. “We just weren't sharp. We weren't passing and catching well. We talked about a trap game all week, and we didn't play well. We threw numerous balls out of bounds playing catch with guys next to us on Wednesday that we hadn't done all season.
