It's been called the largest and most important art and antiques exhibition of the summer. I can't confirm that, but I can tell you that the Baltimore Summer Antiques Show is huge, beautifully designed and features the widest range of high-quality vintage and antique items for sale that I've seen anywhere. For me, attending the show is like going to a museum, but better — the items on display have been curated by hundreds of top specialists from around the world. And unlike museums, which house mostly "permanent" collections established over the course of decades or longer, the merchandise at the show represents the most current trends in art and antiques.

The Orioles were forced to call on pitching prospect Kevin Gausman for a spot start Saturday night against the Oakland Athletics because of an injury to their rotation. With his honeymoon of hype over, all the hoopla that accompanied the 23-year-old's previous starts was gone. This was about filling a need. Gausman responded by providing the Orioles with the best start of his major league career and an encouraging glimpse of the flame-throwing right-hander's immense potential. Gausman held an A's team with the American League's best record to just one run over a career-high seven innings in a 6-3 victory.

Sometimes it's the lyrics and not the music that set a song apart. For the Ellicott City-based ShowTime Singers, one of the most challenging musical numbers they've performed was "America the Beautiful" - when they sang it in Mandarin for a Chinese New Year festival a few years ago. The 47 members of the choral group studied the spoken translation recorded by member Ruihua Tao, who is a native of Beijing and a Columbia resident. Then they put the new words to the patriotic tune in four-part harmony for appreciative immigrants and Chinese-Americans in the audience.

Snow birds may flock to Florida or other points south to escape winter's chill, but culture connoisseurs wrap up tight and head for Manhattan. Yes, autumn in New York conjures colorful foliage in Central Park and even a famous song — Ella Fitzgerald and Frank Sinatra sang of "glittering crowds and shimmering clouds" — but winter brings its own magic, especially for arts denizens. The city tallied a record 48.7 million visitors in 2010 and while the winter can be slower, many consider it high season here for lovers of music, dance, theater and museums, especially given the city's famous plethora of options.

"Show Time: The American Political Circus and the Race for the White House," by Roger Simon. Random House. 327 pages. $25.If you enjoyed the most recent presidential election so much that you can't wait to read a behind-the-scenes account of it, "Show Time" is just the book for you. "Though the 1996 campaign was criticized for being dull," journalist Roger Simon maintains, "it was actually one of the greatest shows on earth."As if to prove that point, he presents a mix of funny stories from the campaign trail and cynically detached observations about how politics has become entertainment - "show business for ugly people," in the words of Clinton strategist James Carville.

Of the 44 U.S. presidents, all but a handful have been affiliated with a relatively narrow list of traditional Protestant denominations. Eleven were Episcopalians (12 if you count Thomas Jefferson, whose adult beliefs are a subject of debate), eight were Presbyterians, four were Methodists and four were Baptists. Others included Congregationalists, Dutch Reformed and Disciples of Christ. President Barack Obama attended Trinity United Church of Christ in Chicago, a congregation with traditional Protestant roots despite its untraditional pastor, the Rev. Jeremiah A. Wright Jr. In Washington, Mr. Obama has attended services at mostly black Protestant churches.

The China Diary of George H.W. Bush: The Making of a Global President Edited by Jeffrey A. Engel Princeton University Press / 544 pages / $29.95 "Be kind," Dorothy Bush advised her son in 1970, when he became ambassador to the United Nations. "Don't be a big shot. Listen, don't talk. Reach out to people ... and recognize in diplomatic terms that the sovereignty of Burundi is as important to them as our sovereignty is to us." Four years later, when George H. W. Bush arrived in Beijing as head of the United States Liaison Office, a penchant for personal diplomacy had become his signature style.

Race Street runs through the center of Cambridge, and for much of the town's history, it was a physical as well as a symbolic divide: Whites lived on one side, blacks kept to the other. That is why the election this week of Victoria Jackson-Stanley, a 54-year-old social worker, as Cambridge's first black mayor marks a historic turning point for the town that's just a few miles from Harriet Tubman's birthplace. In 1967, Cambridge's biggest employer was a canning factory and segregation was a fact of life despite Congress' passage of landmark civil rights legislation earlier in the decade.

There is a theory that Johns Hopkins senior midfielder Paul Rabil is a slow starter, and that he warms up with the weather. When it gets hot in May, so the theory goes, Rabil also gets hot. Hopkins coach Dave Pietramala shakes his head in disbelief, and Rabil just laughs. It's not the weather, but more a change in style of play. Every season for four years, Rabil has had to make adjustments because his role changes. It's been no different this season. "As a freshman, he was just trying to fit in, and then as a sophomore, he was trying to get more involved in the offense, even though we had Kyle Harrison and Matt Rewkowski," Pietramala said.

Bummed out because you're getting older? Tired of looking in the mirror and seeing gray hair, wrinkles and all the other fun stuff that comes with aging? Instead of reaching for the Grecian Formula or shelling out big bucks for Botox, do what I do: Go to a Bruce Springsteen concert. Believe me, you'll fit right in. In fact, if you're only in your 40s, you'll feel like a teenager compared to the rest of the crowd. Are you kidding? They probably card you at the beer stands if you're only in your 40s. The point is, going to see The Boss will be better for you than any antidepressant on the market.

MOST PEOPLE LIKE SHOW HOUSES because of the fantasy involved. What if I had a mansion and could hire 25 different designers to work their magic without worrying about a budget? Or they go on house tours to see how the other half, the half that has money for beautiful furnishings and perfectly manicured gardens, lives. But if you're interested in home decor, there's a practical reason to visit the show houses and house tour homes that open their doors to the public this time of year. These designers and homeowners face the same kinds of problems you may have in decorating your own home -- just on a larger scale.
