On Monday morning, residents in one corner of West Baltimore woke up to find that someone had shot out their car windows. In the chilly air, a group of police officers looked over the damage and took reports. Neighbors, on their porches and in the street, looked on.

PARENTS ARE fond of thinking of college as the next step on the path to meaningful work and economic independence. At the very least, parents think of college as a halfway house where their children can be semi-supervised while they grow up a little. But Koren Zailckas, the 24-year-old author of the brilliant and horrifying new book Smashed: Story of a Drunken Girlhood (Viking Adult, 368 pages, $21.95), gives us a very different picture of college. It is a place where everybody drinks all the time.

When Cuban outfielder Dariel Alvarez arrived in Bowie last year for the last few weeks of the Baysox season, manager Gary Kendall and hitting coach Butch Davis saw a player who was trying to fit a season's worth of slugging into a couple of home stands. With a calm off-season and a sense of comfort gained with the staff in Bowie, Alvarez has become one of the Orioles' top hitting prospects and, in one scout's eye, one of the best sleeper prospects in all of baseball. “He certainly isn't a finished product,” Kendall said last week . “He has good nights, he has bad nights, occasionally.

GAITHERSBURG - It started 7,000 miles away, in China - that was the first time Crystal Wang held a table tennis racket. "Her grandparents introduce her to this game," Crystal's father, Quandou Wang, said. Crystal was visiting them in the summer of 2007, and they took her to a local community center where table tennis abounded and an instructor suggested she give it a shot. Five years old at the time, Crystal could barely see over the table - the average 5-year-old stands 40 inches tall, and a standard table tennis table sits 30 inches off the ground.
