The girl in the tire swing is swaying above North Avenue, sneakers pointing to a traffic light. A block away, the Natty Boh guy and the Utz girl speed away on their wedding day, cans trailing behind their car. And then there's Cupid, aiming an arrow at the street. Above him float the words, "I loved more. " The works of artist Reed Bmore look like line drawings come to life. The 22-year-old shapes sculptures from metal wire, then hangs them on light poles and traffic light cables.

True Sensation beat three other Maryland-bred fillies and mares in yesterday's $75,000 All Brandy Stakes. The race, which was originally scheduled for the turf, was contested in pouring rain and over the muddy main track at Pimlico Race Course. A Queen's Smile, the morning-line favorite, and two others were scratched after the race was switched. River Cruise spurted to the front from her outside post and opened a four-length lead down the backstretch. As GraceBay and Sweep Up slipped farther behind, only jockey Erick Rodriguez and True Sensation had a chance to deny victory from the front-runner.

Not gonna lie, not even going to try and fib: I'm somewhat obsessed with layered drinks. There's just something magical about seeing layers of colors representing flavors in a glass, begging for the option of preservation throughout the cocktail experience - or total layer devastation with the flick of a straw. If layers are your thing, then I've discovered another option worthy of your attention at one Rivserside eatery known as Home Slyce. Bartender Ricardo Vargas is always noodling around with little cocktail creations, but finally decided to go whole hog with creating a cocktail of his own to fit his personality.

It happens to all of us - beginning, perhaps, as a little tickle, hardly noticeable. Maybe you're in an important meeting and you don't want to fidget. Or maybe your hands are full. So you try to ignore it, but the sensation grows - an irritating feeling that gradually occupies more and more of your attention. Finally, you can't take it any longer. You have to scratch the itch. Itching is as fundamental a sensation as pain and hunger, one we share with other creatures: "Every two-legged and four-legged animal itches and scratches," says Dr. Gil Yosipovitch, a dermatologist at Wake Forest University Baptist Medical Center in Winston-Salem, N.C. Yet for such a seemingly simple sensation, it's also surprisingly complicated.

NEW YORK -- The Catholics handed out vomit bags. The civil rights activists lighted candles. A yellow poster blared, "SENSATION SENSATION." By midmorning yesterday, the sidewalks in front of the Brooklyn Museum of Art were clogged with demonstrators, and a line of people waiting to see the art that was causing the commotion stretched through the museum's lobby, out the door and across the cobblestone plaza.It was the official opening of an exhibition of contemporary British art that has enraged New York Mayor Rudolph W. Giuliani and triggered lawsuits by the city and the museum in the past two weeks.

If one of the functions of art is to teach us to see in new ways, the controversy over the Brooklyn Museum of Art's exhibition of young British artists is having just the opposite effect. It has blinded almost everyone to what this show is really about.It would be easy to dismiss the uproar over "Sensation: Young British Artists From the Saatchi Collection" as yet another collision between publicity-seeking artists and demagogic politicians making partisan hay before an election year.When New York Mayor Rudy Giuliani to threatened to cut off the museum's funding if it went ahead with the exhibition, the battle was quickly (and perhaps predictably)

At 2 a.m. one morning in March 2010, photographer David Hobby was wandering, awestruck, around a gilded palace in Southwest Asia as the royal guest of a monarch. "I thought to myself, 'Holy crap! I'm in the sultan's palace in Oman, and no one's even around,'" recalled the Ellicott City resident, who had been invited to the small Arab state to speak about Strobist.com, his photography website and blog. "I've been pinching myself for the last six years," said the 48-year-old married father of two teens.

Florida State's media notes project a key battle Saturday between Maryland receiver Stefon Diggs and Seminoles senior cornerback Lamarcus Joyner. That should be fun to watch. But I'm looking forward to seeing how Maryland's pressure - the Terps have been sack happy through four games - fares against Florida State quarterback Jameis Winston. I wrote a story for tomorrow's paper on Winston , who I spoke with briefly today. The striking thing about Winston is how calm and focused he has been to begin his career.

Lloyd M. Bunting Jr., a four-time All-American lacrosse player who was one of the outstanding Johns Hopkins University players of the late 1940s, died July 6 of complications from a staph infection at the Pickersgill Retirement Community in Towson. He was 87. "If I were to pick one athlete whose credentials stood out in my 65 years at Hopkins, it would be Lloyd," said Robert H. "Bob" Scott, who was a midfielder on the 1950 lacrosse team with Mr. Bunting and later coached the sport at Hopkins for two decades.

TORONTO -- I've often heard that Rogers Centre is one of the toughest places for a visiting outfielder to play because the fans in the two decks beyond the outfield wall feel like they're right on top of you. One player I used to cover said some brutal hecklers exist in the outfield stands there. Another said that it's more like a hockey crowd than your typical baseball crowd. There was at least one idiot there in the Orioles' 12-6 loss to the Blue Jays on Thursday night.

Even a scary spill couldn't keep Jeremy Rose from riding 10 races and winning four, including the $100,000 Maryland Juvenile Filly Championship Stakes, yesterday at Laurel Park. The 22-year-old apprentice jockey was thrown to the ground in the third race when, in tight quarters along the rail, his mount, Sixty Minute Man, stumbled and tossed him head over heels into the dirt. Less than 30 minutes later, aboard Al Khaaser in the fourth race, Rose didn't shy away from riding again in tight quarters on the rail until a hole opened.

Your browser does not support iframes.   When Orioles first baseman Chris Davis flailed at a changeup in the dirt Tuesday for the last out of the third inning, he says he was really frustrated. So he snapped. And so did his bat. Over Davis' knee in one quick motion. "It was misbehaving, so I put him in timeout," Davis said about snapping his bat. "It's not something I am proud of. It's not something, 'Hey, I can break a bat over my knee.' But in that situation out there, I knew I wasn't going to get a lot to hit and I still continued to swing at a ball in the dirt.

There is no excuse for the kind of coverage TV has delivered the last two weeks on the sequester. Television news has been polarizing, sensational and mostly focused on personality rather than the policy behind the $85 billion in federal spending cuts that has come to be known as sequestration. President Obama went into full campaign mode weeks ago, warning of massive disruptions in American life if the cuts were enacted - and blaming them solely on Republican members of Congress.
