Katie Couric probably meant well when she invited "Orange is the New Black" actress Laverne Cox and model Carmen Carrera on her eponymous talk show to discuss transgender-specific issues. After all, transgender women - actual trans women, not trans female characters played by cisgender actors - are still largely absent from network television. Trans issues are largely misunderstood, and trans women of color like Carrera and Cox face particular challenges which aren't often voiced on a national stage.

Maryland Attorney General Douglas F. Gansler called Monday for an independent investigation into the scandal at the Baltimore City Detention Center, saying the public needs to know which government employees allowed corruption to flourish. "Public confidence in the prison system can only be restored after a full, transparent and independent review with an eye toward holding accountable the responsible public officials," Gansler wrote. Gov. Martin O'Malley immediately rebuffed the request, saying in a letter that the federal indictments of corrections officials and inquiries by two new task forces were response enough.

For Baron de Vaux, it was a terrific effort after a layoff of more than nine months, one that should prove beneficial in the coming weeks.Baron de Vaux, the 2.20-1 favorite in a field of eight, led from the start in the 1 1/8 -mile turf event.

Old age is not slowing down Rebuff.When heavily backed speedster Warning Glance melted in mid-stretch after making a frenzied bid for the lead, Rebuff, a horse more than twice his age, came on under jockey Mario Pino with a late burst of power yesterday and won Laurel Park's $55,000 Chieftain Handicap.Had it not been for a severe thunderstorm last weekend in the Delaware Valley, it's doubtful that the 10 year-old Rebuff, beaten a total of 23 3/4 lengths in his three previous 1995 outings, and Amy's Harold, yesterday's runner-up, would have been in the Chieftain lineup.

When the founders of the Maryland Million created their racing lineup a decade ago, they couldn't imagine a horse like Rebuff. Otherwise, they would have written in a race for classy senior citizens.At 11, Rebuff is a year older than the Million itself, which ran its first series of races in 1986 for horses sired by Maryland stallions. Born in 1985, Rebuff is the oldest horse entered in Saturday's 11 Maryland Million races at Laurel Park. What's more, no horse older than Rebuff currently races at Maryland's thoroughbred tracks.

Former Gov. Robert L. Ehrlich Jr. is pushing back against Democratic charges that he received donated services in violation of election laws, saying that questions from the State Board of Elections are unwarranted because he is not technically a candidate for office. A lawyer for Ehrlich said in an April 28 letter to the elections board that "the entire premise" of an inquiry that began because of Democratic concerns is "fundamentally flawed." Ehrlich announced last month that he'll try to win back his old job from Gov. Martin O'Malley, the Democrat who ousted him in November 2006.

BUCHAREST, Romania -- NATO countries unanimously endorsed Bush administration plans for installing a missile defense system in alliance countries in Europe yesterday even as they rebuffed President Bush's entreaties to extend membership of the alliance to the former Soviet republics of Ukraine and Georgia. The unusually rancorous meeting of NATO members in Bucharest exposed sharp differences between nations, but despite the rancor Bush won some agreement on bolstering the number of NATO troops in Afghanistan and presenting a united front against Russia's objections on the issue of missile defense.

Now that Yahoo Inc. has formally rejected Microsoft Corp.'s $44.6 billion buyout bid, the question swirling around the biggest tech industry merger ever proposed is this: Just how much is Microsoft willing to pay? Even though Yahoo executives turned down Microsoft's offer of $31 a share, saying it "substantially undervalues" the company, they didn't reject the idea of a merger, and Microsoft gave no indication it was going away. "Based on conversations with stakeholders of both companies, we are confident that moving forward promptly to consummate a transaction is in the best interests of all parties," Microsoft said in a statement yesterday after receiving Yahoo's rejection letter.

Two former county officials can stay in a multimillion-dollar lawsuit against the local government without sanctions, an Anne Arundel County Circuit Court judge ruled this week. On Tuesday, Judge Paul F. Harris Jr. denied an injunction sought by the county Ethics Commission to oust former County Attorney Phillip F. Scheibe and Robert J. Dvorak, a former top administrator with the county, from a class-action lawsuit over impact fees. Harris also refused a motion to levy fines against Scheibe and Dvorak of up to $1,000 a day since the start of the case in 2001 -- potentially more than $2 million apiece -- and to withhold attorney fees from Scheibe and witness fees from Dvorak.

As the Maryland General Assembly considered closing a loophole to prevent corporations from entirely avoiding state taxes, Marriott International Inc. warned legislators yesterday that it might "adjust operations" if they alter the tax system. While the Bethesda-based hotel operator insists that it pays taxes and stopped short of saying that it would move, business and economic development leaders are worried that fewer companies are choosing to call Maryland home. A dozen major Maryland companies have been bought out this year, often becoming branches of companies with headquarters elsewhere.
