Susan Fragola Shelby, 32, of Ellicott City is a computer scientist with the Department of Defense. In her entry, she updated Poe's classic poem:Once upon a midnight dreary, while I slumbered, so securely,Oh, the sorrow thrust upon me, in forgotten Baltimore.While they nestled, nicely napping, suddenly there came a tapping,As of someone slyly stealing, stealing them from Baltimore." 'Tis the thiefman," they all muttered, "Come to make us play no more --& In beloved Baltimore."Ah, distinctly I remember 'twas in March but seemed December,As each separate saddened member of the team walked out the door.

Baltimore has a special interest in the new John Cusack movie "The Raven" as it tells the story of a man the city claims as its own: Edgar Allan Poe. (If they named the football team after his poem, he's got to be something, right?) The film depicts a 19th century Baltimore, but was filmed, much to the city's dismay, in Europe, where it just opened. It's due to play here next month, so as a public service, we thought we could tell you what reviewers across the pond thought.

Justices, it used to be said, read the election returns. Now, they write them. Imagine paying a guy $25 million per to play with such Orioles castoffs as Palmeiro and Oates. Cheer up. Bibi is back in politics. Acela could be a great train if they clear the track and let it run often and on-time enough. Quoth the Raven: "Evermore."

Many times Baltimore area fans simply take their sports much too seriously. I confess, I am one. And sometimes it is nice to see an article in the line of humor to lessen the load after a serious loss such as the Ravens faced in New England. My Thanks to Jean Marbella for "Quoth the reeling Ravens fan, evermore" (Jan. 29). It was a very clever, funny and humbling piece that kind of puts the picture in focus for this particular fan. And made me consider again, what things would be like without our sports teams to support.

Mr. Kim and Mr. Kim speak Korean but not the same language. The city and Johns Hopkins intend to demolish the historic landmark hospital in which Edgar Allen Poe died. Quoth the Raven, "Nevermore." Hafez el Assad ruled Syria 30 years without making peace, so his passing hardly endangers the prospect. Somebody is getting away with murder in Atlanta, which is not commendable.

Quoth the Raven : Evermore! It would help if the cops and prosecutors were on the same side, or is that too much to ask? Q. What was the fashionable way to address President Bill? A. Pardon me, sir. Greenspan thinks the tax revenue will keep flowing while the economy stops. From anyone else, that might be a contradiction. Don't worry about oil shortages. Iraq will always sell.

Once upon a midnight dreary, while I pondered, weak and weary Moving vans came rapping, rapping at my training complex door`Twas that irksome Irsay, hauling off my football lore, Only this, you say? In Charm City then, we had no more. Ah, distinctly I remember t'was in bleak November And a cloud of tear-like snowflakes made me cry "You miserable bore!" For the rare and storied team he pilfered: Unitas, Donovan and Moore Gone those beery, bonding Sundays evermore But then came a visitor entreating entrance at my vacant training complex door An Irsay in reverse, I shuddered?

Our Form Of Government Is Being ThreatenedWe used to pledge our allegiance to the flag of the United States of America and to the republic for which it stands.But, perhaps we never truly understood what a republic really is. So let's go to the encyclopedia for a short lesson: To avoid a cumbersome and lengthy plebiscite in which each citizen is asked to vote on every issue to be decided, a form of government was dreamed up, known as a republican form. This form should not be confused with the party of the same name, either.

Sorry, psychics. I saw in The Baltimore Sun this week that you're going to try to contact Edgar Allan Poe from beyond the grave next month. Nice idea, hope it makes some money to save his house. But I beat you to it. I stopped by Westminster Hall this week, and while he sends his regards and says he'll be happy to talk to you when you call, the Poester had something to say now. After what happened a week ago, he revised his most famous poem, and asked me to share it: The Ravens Once upon last Sunday dreary, while I pondered weak and weary, Over how Cundiff could miss and Evans did not score, While I nodded, nearly napping, suddenly there came a tapping, As of some one gently rapping, rapping at my rowhouse door.

Once upon a midnight dreary, while I pondered weak and weary, Over many a quaint and curious volume of football lore, At the goal line, things were happening, Joe Flacco and friends they came a tapping, Ray Lewis and the team were rapping, rapping at the Patriot's door. "'Tis some visitor," they muttered, "tapping at my goal line door" -- Quoth the Ravens "We will score." Presently their soul grew stronger; hesitating then no longer, "Sir," said we, "or Madam, truly your forgiveness we implore; But the fact is you were napping, and so gently we came rapping, And so softly you were napping, napping while we scored some more, That I scarce was sure I heard you -- here you opened wide the door;" -- Darkness there, forevermore.

Pittsburgh-- --The Baltimore Ravens playing on Halloween. How fitting. The team's namesake, Edgar Allan Poe - a writer, a poet, a critic, an all-around crazy guy - would surely have appreciated it. His 19th-century work was the most macabre and dark of the Romantics. His most famous piece, The Raven, was published 160 years ago and still stands as the prototype for horror. Of course, in Baltimore it hardly scares us anymore. That's because this season football fans have seen just how scary a Raven can be. Ol' Edgar, who's buried less than a mile from M&T Bank Stadium in downtown Baltimore, would understand true terror if he'd been writing about this team.
