Baltimore County residents in the know have been feasting on Gourmet Again's terrific chicken salad and shrimp salad sandwiches for years, often eating in their cars because there was no place to sit down in the store. Now, the family-owned grocery, bakery and deli has added a little sit-down cafe, so customers no longer have to worry about spilling their food on their steering wheels. Poor:]

Outside the Supreme Court on Wednesday, Joseph O'Farrell searched the crowd of cheering same-sex marriage proponents for his husband. Before the couple connected, O'Farrell sent Rafael Ramirez a quick text message: "Yay!" For the Laurel couple, the high court decision to strike down the law that barred federal recognition of same-sex marriage means that O'Farrell will finally be able to sponsor his Mexican spouse in his efforts to become a U.S. citizen. "It really is a weight lifted off our shoulders," O'Farrell, 28, said Wednesday evening.

ORIOLES FANS are frequently described as passionless, Chablis-sippin', brie-sniffin', shop-talkin', cell-phonin' interlopers who go to Camden Yards to hobnob with clients, not root for the Birds. This has been rendered a cliche by now, largely because it's true, at least in certain sections of the park, where Washingtonians and corporate suits rule the roost, and where you're more likely to hear talk about an IPO than about an ERA. Did you catch the recent display ad in this newspaper for US Airways MetroJet commuter service?

FROM A question-and-answer session with Speaker Newt Gingrich at a National Newspaper Association meeting:Moderator: Did you tell a business group that if one disagrees with editorial policy, curtailing advertising could be an effective approach for change?Speaker Gingrich: Absolutely. Absolutely. What I said -- and I'll say it anywhere -- the news media is the fourth estate. It deserves to be just as carefully scrutinized, just as critically looked at. It should be held up to the same standard as politicians or judges or anybody else.

Debbie Maiste starts most of her days by facing hordes of hungry teen-agers. They fill up the Einstein Brothers Bagel shop she runs near the corner of Falls Road and Cold Spring Lane and grab a few bites of breakfast before heading over to Poly/Western high schools. Sharing a small space with masses of spirited high schoolers doesn't faze Maiste. "They're kids," she said. "If they get too loud, or if they are late for school, I just walk over and give them my Mom-glare." The Mom-glare, Maiste told me, usually brings the kids around.

O's fan in bayouAs a nationally syndicated Pulitzer Prize winning-editorial cartoonist for the Times-Picayune in New Orleans, my daily life is filled with the giddy excitement of trouncing on the scoundrels who inhabit this soggy bayou. But as a Baltimore native, nothing has made me or my family happier this year than watching our beloved Orioles. Because we couldn't get the Orioles on TV here, we were constantly forced to endure the tedium of following the sports ticker that runs along the bottom of CNN's "Headline News."

"This kid was just as imaginative and is just as adventurous as Steve Jobs was at the age of 7," said the attorney for the boy suspended from school after he nibbled a gun-shaped Pop-Tart ("Appeal filed in 7-year-old's suspension over pastry," March 19). I really don't believe Steve Jobs ever bit a pastry into the shape of a gun and then pointed it at other students. What the boy's attorney, and more importantly, his parents should be doing is sitting down with the 7-year-old and asking him what was going through his mind when he made the shape of a gun and pointed it at his classmates as if it were a game.

Cal Ripken Jr. stopped by The Baltimore Sun this morning as part of the promotional tour for his third children's novel, “Wild Pitch,” which came out today. The book - about a young pitcher who loses his confidence after beaning an opponent - was co-written by Sun columnist Kevin Cowherd. Before leaving on a book signing tour that will include stops in a number of spring training spots (including the Orioles' camp in Sarasota on Thursday), Ripken sat down for a quick Q&A touching on the O's, his color commentary, the late Earl Weaver and his son Ryan.

Back in July, I wrote about Gov. Martin O'Malley becoming a staple of network and cable Sunday morning TV. Public affairs show hosts ranging from Bob Schieffer to Candy Crowley talked about the attributes Maryland's governor brings to the national conversation about the nation's civic life. This Sunday, he will do less familiar turn on Baltimore TV sitting down for an interview with Richard Sher on the former WJZ newsman's "Square Off" show. I am interested in hearing what O'Malley has to say when he's speaking to a local audience and isn't riding TV point for President Obama's re-election campaign.

Three months after top city officials rejected a contract to install a new municipal telephone system, Mayor Stephanie Rawlings-Blake's chief information officer and Comptroller Joan M. Pratt met Thursday to talk about what to do next. The administration proposed a memorandum of understanding between the two feuding offices that would create a new commission to oversee the city's phone system, which has been the subject of heated debate. The memorandum proposes creating a 12-member "Communications Governance Committee" - with three members who report to Pratt and nine who work for the mayor - that would oversee the phone system, which city officials have been trying to convert to Voice over Internet Protocol technology.

We got Democrats acting like Republicans."You mean because they are now embracing middle-class, middle-American, middle-of-the-road values while keeping the radical groups under wraps?"More than that. They're acting like they planned their campaigns further ahead than breakfast. I mean, they're organized. That's the way the Republicans always did it. But now the Republicans are as goofed up as the Democrats used to be."

ONE MAN'S modest New Year resolutions:* For openers, I intend to lose 10 pounds and completely alter my eating habits. I will carefully trim the fat from my steaks. I'll peel the skin from my chicken and eat white meat instead of dark. In restaurants, I'll resist the nice hot loaf of French bread and order only from the side of the menu marked "For the Calorie Conscious."* No more desserts, either. Ever again.* Each morning I'll jump out of bed at 6, drop to the floor and -- off 100 push-ups and sit-ups.

WASHINGTON - Actor Cuba Gooding Jr. and Johns Hopkins neurosurgeon Dr. Benjamin Carson are a formidable pair. One is an Academy Award winner, while the other is the recipient of the Presidential Medal of Freedom, the nation's highest civilian award. And so, it is with some trepidation that you begin an interview with them at a fancy restaurant asking if they could scooch together a little more on a couch and try to lean forward and speak directly into an old Radio Shack microcassette recorder on a table in front of them.

That's what's expected of candidates vying for the second-highest elected office in the land. And Governor Palin is no exception.
