Three points need to be made about Monday's  decision by the Supreme Court not to decide whether the equal protection clause of the Constitution grants people of the same sex the right to marry. Point 1: While the court's liberal wing probably wanted to accept cases banning same-sex marriage in five states that have been overturned by three different federal appeals courts in recent months, the conservative majority, along with swing Justice Anthony Kennedy, apparently wished to see states resolve the issue.

UPDATE: Such a great week for Baltimore singles.  Some love from Zillow, a snugly snow day, and now this: Kiplinger's, a personal finance magazine, says Baltimore is the sixth best city to fly solo. So what makes Charm City so charming for single people?  Here's what Kiplinger's says, "An inflated income can help you stay afloat in this waterfront city. With typical earnings coming in 27.1% higher than the national median, Baltimore residents should be able to handle the above-average living costs.

NEW YORK -- Over the past two decades, there probably has been no player who has caused the Orioles more heartbreak than Derek Jeter. And in his final game at Yankee Stadium, he found a way to beat them one last time. This wasn't the infamous "Jeffrey Maier home run" in the 1996 American League Championship Series or those 14 straight losing seasons in which Jeter and the New York Yankees used the Orioles as a division punching bag. Times have changed. When the teams took the field for Jeter's final game wearing pinstripes at Yankee Stadium on Thursday night, it was the newly-crowned AL East champion Orioles -- not the Yankees -- who were playing with something at stake.

Baltimore ranks among the top 10 cities for singles , according to Kiplinger. The personal finance magazine rated cities on whether household income exceeded the national average of $49,536; the percentage of singles in the city -- must exceed the national average of 49.4 percent -- and the average price of a date night that entails two movie tickets and a bottle of wine. Singles don't eat on dates? Not sure if cities were ranked in order, although Kiplinger listed Baltimore as No. 4. The average median household income here is $66,195, and the percentage unmarried households amounted to 52.9 percent.

So according to the national media, if you're still single in the Baltimore area, you're just not trying hard enough. First, over the summer, Money Magazine said that Towson is one of the country's top places to find rich singles. And now Bloomberg puts Ellicott City near the top of its list of "swinging singles" spots. Hoboken, N.J., is at the very top of the list. Arlington, Va., in our general area, ranked second. But Ellicott City made it to Bloomberg's respectable eighth position for men. Bowie, meanwhile, took the third spot when it came to women singles.

More singles than ever before are moving into the housing market.One-third of last year's first-time homebuyers were singles, up from 25 percent the previous year, according to a study by the National Association of Realtors.The study, which was released at the NAR's recent convention in New Orleans, found the trend reflects the overall growth in non-traditional households, caused by higher divorce rates and a growing tendency of young people to postpone marriage "while getting on with their economic lives," said the NAR's chief economist, John A. Tuccillo.

Despite his obvious power and previous success, Orioles infielder Chris Davis has been struggling so much this season that it has become business as usual when pitchers challenge him. So, in the Orioles' 5-4 victory over the Tampa Bay Rays on Thursday, it was somewhat surprising that Tampa Bay manager Joe Maddon chose to have rookie right-hander Kirby Yates (0-2) intentionally walk Davis with two outs and a runner on second base in a tied game. Shortstop J.J. Hardy made the move backfire, dumping a bloop single into right field to score Nelson Cruz from second base for the eventual game-winner in front of an announced 16,915 at Camden Yards.

WASHINGTON -- With Orioles sluggers Chris Davis and Nelson Cruz struggling, veteran Delmon Young has been getting more playing time in the second half of the season. Without a designated hitter available in Monday's interleague makeup game at Nationals Park, though, Young was back on the bench -- where he might be an even more dangerous weapon. In the Orioles' 7-3 win against the Nationals, Young had a huge pinch-hit single in a three-run seventh inning that gave his club a lead it never relinquished.

Based on the way the first five battles between the Orioles and Los Angeles Angels had played out, there was little question the season-series finale was going to possess its share of drama. So how about a scoreless tie that stretched into the 13th inning before the Angels finally cracked the Orioles' stubborn bullpen and avoided a sweep? Throw in a potential no-hitter that was thwarted by injury and you had just another ho-hum affair between two evenly matched clubs that could end up clashing again in the postseason.

Move over, Michael. It's Dukie's turn on the mic. Tristan Wilds - the actor who played Michael Lee on "The Wire" and who now performs as Mack Wilds - is not the only "Wire" alum to recently pursue a music career. Jermaine Crawford (the New York City-based actor who played Michael's classmate, Duquan "Dukie" Weems) is now a 21-year-old R&B singer. Crawford quietly released a five-song effort, "Underdog," last October. (Download it here .) And you can watch his video for the Janet Jackson-inspired single, "Janet," above.

By definition, it was the New York Yankees who were in  pinstripes at Camden Yards for the Orioles' 3-2 win in 10 innings Friday night . Their fans, as always, were out in abundance, making up at least half of the sellout crowd. But these weren't the dominating, punch-you-in-the-gut Bronx Bombers of old. This Yankees club was making its 2014 debut in the city with no Mariano Rivera, no CC Sabathia and no Alex Rodriguez. Its centerpiece for so many seasons, shortstop Derek Jeter, is 40 and retiring at the end of this year.

New advances in wine technology are great news for people who thrive on variety and experimentation. With more Baltimore-area restaurants adopting an array of advanced wine-dispensing systems - from kegs to devices that allow wine to be poured without removing the cork - it's easier than ever to imbibe without committing to a single bottle. These new systems have a cool factor that makes wine geeks go nuts. But the technology is for more than just show. Implementing these systems translates into more options for customers, cost savings for restaurant owners and environmental benefits for everyone.

Unfazed by a wretched exchange rate, spiraling prices for airline tickets and the slowing economy, Mary Kowalski dug into her savings account and packed up her bags in September to fly off for two months in Italy and France. "Couples necking on every corner," she sighed in a postcard from Venice. "The perfect place for a second honeymoon -- or third, or fourth, or fifth!"But at 46, Ms. Kowalski was not on her second honeymoon. Divorced years ago, with no relationship on the horizon, she was traveling with her two best women friends.

BOSTON - Orioles right-hander Miguel Gonzalez stifled the Red Sox for eight innings in the first game of a split doubleheader at Fenway Park, delivering arguably his best start of the season, but the Orioles still suffered a sobering, 3-2, walk-off loss to the Red Sox at Fenway Park. Seemingly rested and recovered from their early-morning arrival in Boston on Friday after their scheduled afternoon game was postponed until Saturday because of rain, the Orioles received a boost from Gonzalez, but mustered just five hits on the afternoon.
