A man who smashed the plate-glass windows of several convenience stores last week and stole money and cigarettes is being sought by Baltimore County police. Detectives have a surveillance photo of the suspect and are asking for the public's help in identifying him. The smash-and-grab burglaries involved four businesses, two on Jan. 18 and the others two days later. The suspect was described as white, between 20 and 30 years old, with a medium build. A police statement issued Thursday said the man committed the burglaries in the early morning hours by breaking the stores' front glass windows.

The developer of the Ritz-Carlton Residences said it sold a huge penthouse unit for $12.6 million Wednesday, an important deal for the struggling Inner Harbor project - and one that smashes previous records for Baltimore condo sales. Tom Clancy's attorney confirmed Thursday morning that the author purchased the penthouse. The nearly 12,000-square-foot residence was originally three separate penthouses, combined by developer RXR Realty at the buyer's request. Lowell R. Bowen, an attorney with Miles & Stockbridge, declined to discuss Clancy's reason for the purchase.

The little-boy fantasy of cars coming to life and turning into giant talking robots from outer space plummets straight into the high-tech junkyard in Transformers: Revenge of the Fallen, a movie that manages to mangle a whole slew of sure-fire fantasies. For slightly younger boys, the Transformers series taps into the infantile wish fulfillment of smashing things up without really damaging them. And for slightly older boys, the films showcase Megan Fox as Mikaela Banes, the grease-monkey beauty who loves our teenage hero, Sam Witwicky (Shia LaBeouf)

Only Alex Rodriguez, major league baseball's $275 million lightning rod, could have completed the impressive daily double in Friday's first inning at Camden Yards. The New York Yankees' controversial third baseman, making his season debut after March hip surgery and an offseason confession that he once took performance-enhancing drugs, stepped to the plate to a rousing chorus of boos. For several moments, the palpable hatred was louder, incredibly, than the venomous Bronx cheers reserved especially for Yankees first baseman, Maryland native and alleged turncoat Mark Teixeira.

Fame and success came fast for comedian Gallagher. His third-ever gig as a comic was opening for country music legend Kenny Rogers in Dallas in front of 17,000 people, he recalls. Audiences loved his colorful clothing and trademark watermelon bashing, and his TV series and specials made him a smash hit (pun intended). Nearly 30 years since his explosive start, Gallagher is still bashing fruit and making snappy remarks about society. The clubs are smaller and so are the crowds, but that barely puts a dent in Gallagher's gusto.

EAST RUTHERFORD, N.J. - It wasn't surprising that the New York Giants beat the Ravens yesterday, but how they beat them. In a match up between two smash-mouth football teams, the Giants delivered the most body shots, and several knockout blows in what was supposed to be a statement game for the Ravens. It was. "I was embarrassed," said Ravens defensive end Terrell Suggs. He should be. So should the entire offensive line, and inside linebackers Ray Lewis and Bart Scott. And defensive tackles Haloti Ngata and Justin Bannan.

Beware of flying crockery. I'm pleased to report that no members of the audience were accidentally beheaded during a recent performance of Le Cabaret de Carmen. That would be carrying the quest for authenticity a bit too far. But at times, it was a close call. Most singers portraying the Gypsy siren Carmen use castanets when they dance. Sophie-Louise Roland uses shards of a plate that she obligingly shatters on stage. At one point, Roland flung her arm so vehemently over her head that a heavy metal bracelet flew off her arm and ricocheted against the wall.

Hand that man a crown. John Waters, Baltimore's venerable Filth Elder, is extending his reign over Broadway. On Thursday, Waters will be represented by not one, but two Broadway musicals based on his movies. Cry-Baby will make its official debut; the musical is a romp set in 1950s Baltimore about love, class and the Rosenbergs. Nearby, Hairspray's Tracy Turnblad has been dancing her way to racial equality for five years. But, why stop at two shows? Waters has made 16 films. For instance, Hag In A Black Leather Jacket begs to be a ballet.
