Arthur Turco had defended members of the Black Panther Party across the country, but it was in Baltimore that he would be arrested and jailed - on charges that he and members of the militant group had killed a suspected police informant within their ranks in 1969. After a year in Baltimore's jail and a mistrial, Turco said he was offered a deal: plead guilty to a misdemeanor and go free on time served. After discussing it with his associate, William Kunstler - the radical lawyer who defended such brazen civil disobedients as the Chicago Seven and the Attica prison inmates - they decided to take the offer and run. "'Let's just get the hell out of Baltimore,'" Turco remembers the famed lawyer saying.

The proposed legislation embraces alternative energy, and there's nothing wrong with that.

On the second day of the year, I stood naked above the tank of water saturated with Epsom salts, preparing to close myself into total darkness. In less than an hour, I would find myself in a drug-free altered state, feeling my body melt into the warmth and interviewing a vision of a woman playing the piano.

ST. THOMAS, U.S. Virgin Islands - There must be something about playing in the Caribbean that brings out the best - or the beast - in Maryland men's basketball sophomore Jake Layman. On a trip last summer to the Bahamas, where the Terps played three games against competition made up mostly of older, local players, the 6-foot-8 swingman was the team's breakout star in a Maryland sweep.
