I see that Republican candidate Michele Bachmann is now "guaranteeing" gas will be $2 a gallon if she becomes president. Wow! As anyone familiar with the free market knows, there is only one way to guarantee that gas is going to be at the price set by a politician - price controls. Even the "lefty" President Obama hasn't suggested that. That puts Michele Bachmann to the left of Obama and the Democrats in Congress, even that lefty Bernie Sanders fromVermont. So in one day, Michele Bachmann has gone from right-wing darling to the very thing she claims to hate: a socialist!

(To view photos from last night's show, visit the Darkroom's gallery .) True story: I was watching "American Idol" one night during the season that Adam Lambert was competing. I said to my wife - Mrs. Brown will vouch for this - “that guy should sing with Queen.” The band was casting about for a new frontman after ending its five-year partnership with former Free/Bad Company/The Firm/The Law singer Paul Rodgers, and Lambert was enlivening another dreary season of Idol with his three-octave range, upper-register confidence and flamboyant stage presence.

As a supporter of the Fairness For All Marylander's Act, I want to thank The Sun for running Kevin Rector's article, "Transgender student named prom queen at Baltimore high school" (May 28). When Destiny Hartis graduates, leaves Baltimore and crosses over into Anne Arundel County to attend a nursing program, all of her basic rights will travel with her thanks to the Fairness For All Marylanders Act. Prior to this update to our anti-discrimination law, Ms. Harris would have lost the rights she had at home in Baltimore City the moment she crossed over into Anne Arundel County.

Destiny Hartis had made up her mind. She would be elected Digital Harbor High School's prom queen at the school's senior prom on May 15, she remembers thinking that night -- even if it meant spending part of the dance gathering votes from her fellow classmates. "It was my day," said Hartis, 20, who attended the end-of-year event with her cousin, Kerstin Jones, in a long blue dress. "I was going to win. " And she did -- becoming the Baltimore high school's first transgender student in faculty memory to walk away with the prom queen's crown and sash.

Sunny Sighed remembers her first exposure to modern burlesque very well. She loved it, but never dreamed she'd soon be a part of it. Stripping off her clothes in front of an audience - well, even for a performer trained in acting, singing and dancing, that seemed a bit much. "I at first could not imagine being able to do it myself," she says of the night about eight years ago when she first saw local legends Trixie Little and the Evil Hate Monkey (real names: Beatrix Burneston and Adam Krandle)

The Queen tells Alice, "Why, sometimes I've believed as many as six impossible things before breakfast. " If the Queen were on the Internet, she could discover six asinine things before the coffee has begun to cool in the cup. I offer as a specimen the remarks on copy editing by one Abraham Hyatt, reported by Jim Romenesko : "I strongly believe that online audiences don't notice the majority of the work a copyeditor does. Readers see misspellings and blatant errors in grammar.

They were the champions, dominating airwaves in the '70s and '80s with their distinctive brand of pomp and romp. And now they're back, making the same bold promise: "We Will Rock You. " That's the title of a jukebox musical filled with about two dozen songs by the British band Queen. Those songs are applied to a sci-fi scenario in the show, which opened in London's West End in 2002 to reviews that were slightly to the right of scathing. But those notices were not enough to make another one bite the dust.
