I'd love to be an invisible presence in the room the next time Barack Obama and Vladimir Putin sit down for a chat. The high stakes drama of the Cold War is gone, but the Russian president is the American president's nemesis on everything from sarin gas attacks in Syria to gay rights in Russia. To see them spar would be enlightening entertainment. After intelligence specialist Edward Snowden leaked information about U.S. cyberspying earlier this year, he went on the lam and found refuge in Moscow.

There were many happy faces for No. 6 Southwestern after its 57-56 season-opening victory over visiting Potomac last night.But none was happier than Haywood Eaddy, whose two free throws with 38 seconds remaining in regulation provided the winning margin for the Sabers (1-0).Potomac (0-1) used two timeouts and worked the clock down to four seconds before Matt Brown's three-point attempt from the left corner missed and a scramble for the loose ball caused the remaining seconds to elapse."It was a tight game," said Eaddy, a 5-foot-8 senior guard.

When it comes to Syria, we live in an Alice-In-Wonderland world. John Kerry, once the young, defiant pacifist, has morphed into a hawk, and President Obama, who opposed the Iraq intervention, has done a similar turnaround ( "Putin's dubious offer," Sept. 10). So as I understand it, we're supposed to show them we can kill better and thus teach them not to kill - at least with gas? Where are the other residents of the neighborhood? Don't Syria's neighbors feel any moral obligation to intervene, even minimally, to express their disapproval and concern?

The threat of an Israeli strike against Iran'snuclear facilities ratcheted up a notch last week when Israel'sdefense minister, Ehud Barak, issued new warnings that time was running out to stop Tehran's drive to build a bomb. If Israel waits much longer, Mr. Barak told a security conference in Jerusalem, it would no longer have the option of destroying the Iranian weapons program before it disappeared into newly constructed mountain bunkers where it would be invulnerable to attack. Israel's escalating rhetoric is understandable: The nation's leaders have good reason to fear a nuclear-armed Iran would act on its vows to destroy the Jewish state.

In its first game, No. 5 Walbrook lost to a tough Northeast Catholic team from Philadelphia, learned a little bit about itself and got off on the wrong foot in what should be a promising season. Last night, the Warriors left no doubt who was the better team. Host Walbrook (2-1) used a high-octane offense and a tough zone defense to cruise to a 75-56 victory over rival Southwestern (1-2) in the night's final game at the Function at the Junction basketball mixer. Forward Roscoe Smith led Walbrook with 28 points and 14 rebounds.

Of the 1,200 performances that Charlie Ross has given of his One-Man Star Wars Trilogy, the most memorable might have been a show he performed in Dubai in early 2006. "Some people in the audience were in full Lawrence of Arabia gear, with flowing robes and head-wraps," he says. "It was quite strange to see that mixed crowd genuinely enjoying themselves. I shudder to think that there might be people living in the desert who watch Star Wars on televisions in their tents, but it's completely possible."

Celebrate your roots. That's what Balticon -- Baltimore's annual science fiction and fantasy convention -- is all about. Although technology and special effects have provided a visual manifestation of the sci-fi universe, Balticon's emphasis is on literature, the original medium that exhibited so many otherworldly characters, concepts and locations. "It's clear that we focus on the written aspect of the genre," says Gregory Wright, a Balticon chairman and coordinator. "There are numerous programs that focus on books and short stories and allow open discussion on the genre."

Every spring comes with a smattering of no-hitters in area softball and baseball, but last week, Southwestern pitchers Shannon Bonnett and Kelley Phillips did something rare - they threw no-hitters on the same day. Bob Wade, coordinator of athletics for Baltimore City Public Schools, said he cannot remember a softball pitcher and a baseball pitcher from the same city school throwing no-hitters on the same day.

PHILADELPHIA -- A couple of months ago, pundits were predicting that a U.S. attack on Iran was imminent. The buzz was propelled by President Bush's tough talk about Iran in a Jan. 10 speech on Iraq, by the dispatch of more U.S. ships to the Persian Gulf, and by repeated American claims that Iran was helping radical Shiites kill U.S. troops in Iraq. Speculation was intense about potential U.S. (or Israeli) bombing raids on Iran's suspect nuclear energy program. But an amazing shift in tone - among U.S. officials and Iran experts - has taken place in the last couple of months.

COLLEGE PARK -- A boys basketball team from Southwestern might have walked off the court for the final time last night. After the No. 4 Sabers lost to Eleanor Roosevelt, 70-44, in a Class 4A state semifinal, they now must wait to see if Baltimore City will shut down their campus at the end of the school year. Southwestern could not overcome 26 turnovers against the Raiders, who scored 21 points off those giveaways. Sabers coach Terry Leverett told his players before the game how a state championship would be a nice send-off if the school is indeed closed, but Roosevelt was just too tough.
