Concerts that consist entirely of the work of a single composer are rarely entirely successful affairs. There simply aren't many good composers whose work is varied enough to provide interest over the length of an evening.If you doubt this, try to listen sometime for two consecutive hours to the chamber music of Johannes Brahms.It was all the more remarkable, therefore, that last night's concert of the music of Shulamit Ran in Friedberg Hall at the Peabody Conservatory was so entirely engrossing.

Editor's note: This op-ed has been updated to reflect the correct spelling of Billie Holiday's name. The Sun regrets the error.  I traveled back to my hometown of Baltimore last weekend to reprise my role as that important historical figure, The Devil, in a rock opera about the Battle of Baltimore. This was the long-anticipated bicentennial performance of "1814!: The War of 1812 Rock Opera," a project some old friends of mine, Dave Israel and David Dudley, conceived in the bars of Fort Avenue back in 1992, before we had anything worse to do. They'd always envisioned mounting a spectacular, all-star production of the thing on the 200th anniversary of the bombardment of Fort McHenry, in the unimaginable science-fiction year of 2014.

Two spectators trying to steal attention for themselves ran onto the Camden Yards field during Tuesday night's Orioles game, but it was Officer Guy Thacker who stole the show.Toward the end of the 6-0 Toronto drubbing that offered home-team fans little to cheer about, thousands applauded as Thacker ran after one of the elusive fans, who for two minutes dodged the determined officer."That's what they pay us to do," Thacker told his lieutenant, explaining why he ran after the fan, who twice ran by the pitcher's mound and weaved around visiting players.

Robert Council's final numbers in Morgan State's 28-3 rout of visiting Bowie State might suggest that the redshirt senior quarterback fared poorly in that game. But that's not how Council or his coach saw it. Council threw just 10 passes, completed two, and gained 18 yards. But with redshirt sophomore running back Herb Walker Jr. carrying the ball 20 times for 180 yards and two touchdowns, the Bears (1-2) didn't really need to rely on Council to lead the offense through the air. “We could've thrown the ball,” said Council, who added 12 rushes for 73 yards and two touchdowns.

Orioles center fielder Adam Jones caused a bit of a stir Thursday during the pregame Social Media Night event at Camden Yards by behaving in a way that wasn't particularly sociable. The star outfielder irked some fans in attendance with short responses during the question-and-answer session, and he earned especially negative attention for saying his favorite place in Baltimore was the airport so he could fly home. After the game, Jones said he was joking, adding that he likes the airport because it's where he picks up his friends and family who come to visit and support him. “I guess my shtick wasn't appreciated at the time,” Jones said.

From a home base in Houston, federal authorities say, a Remington native has been directing a cross-country drug operation that shipped large quantities of heroin to Baltimore, New York, New Orleans and elsewhere. Fred Douglas Brooks III, 46, had already served two federal prison terms for drug trafficking when he allegedly launched a new venture despite having betrayed a crew of Mexican suppliers by testifying against them in 2005. The latest business - a "high-level, interstate narcotics-trafficking and money-laundering operation," according to federal prosecutors in Louisiana - flourished until his arrest June 30 in Houston, authorities say. At least 16 people, including Brooks, have been charged in connection with the case; seven are charged in U.S. District Court in Maryland.

So much about Ronnie Wong is as normal as three meals a day. He has a wife and a young daughter, a six-days-a-week job, a house in the suburbs. Inside those conventional trappings, however, is a driven 44-year-old who, he admits, is "not normal," the words delivered with the wry smile you allow when you understand that the rest of the world thinks you're crazy.Wong is a distance runner, but a profound departure from the conventional definition. He runs distances that boggle the mind, competing in races that would reduce even the stoutest marathoner to a slack-jawed quitter.

Though he was a man of the cloth, Charles Turner Torrey went out of his way to publicly mock his enemies and alienate his ever-dwindling supply of friends. He was always short of money. He abandoned - or at least, severely neglected - his wife and two children. During a celebrated court case in the 1840s, he was described as "the most hated man in Maryland. " But a new book makes the case that the difficult, driven minister was one of the greatest abolitionists in U.S. history, although almost no one today knows his name.
