Sonja Santelises stood before a room of Baltimore educators whose faces were filled with angst as she spoke about a rigorous new curriculum that would soon change everything they thought they knew about teaching. Three years later, when she pulled up a new English and language arts curriculum aligned with new standards - known as the "common core" - that will be rolled out this year, a room of educators erupted into cheers. "That didn't mean that everything is perfect, because there's no magic bullet to this common core thing," Santelises, the city schools' chief academic officer, recalled recently.

Well, Bravo jumped right into the drama on this week's episode of "The Real Housewives of New York City. " For some reason Sonja thought it would be a good idea to invite Ramona to her business meeting with Heather and James, the logo designer. The whole meeting was a disaster since Ramona kept interrupting and influencing Sonja on the design. Also, Ramona picked up her phone, causing the whole meeting to stop.  However, Ramona thinks that the meeting isn't going well because Heather is intimidated that she is also a successful businesswoman.

There are many ways to make money from the drug trade besides selling addictive chemicals. What do we call the people who sell things that support the deadly business, keeping well back from the scenes of violence and depravity playing out on the streets but just as critically involved as the ''pushers''?A couple of recent raids, executed by the ''Zone Rangers'' drug-enforcement unit, brought new attention to this mostly unseen side of the problem. Tuesday, the Rangers, plainclothes officers from the Eastern Police District, swooped downtown to seize suspected drug paraphernalia from the Sonja Wholesale shop, a showroom and warehouse near the Lexington Market.

Orchard, by Larry Watson. Random House. 256 pages. $24.95. If there exists a literary equivalent to the artist's play of light on a canvas, then Larry Watson has mastered it. Author of the best-selling Montana, 1948, Watson deftly uses light to inform his subjects in this story of grief, betrayal and jealousy. Set against the backdrop of the rugged, rural towns of Door County, Wis., in the 1950s, every scene of Orchard is painted with deliberate, vivid strokes of radiance: the soft glow of the moon, the intense whites of a horse's eyes, sun so hot it burns the blue out of a cloudless sky. The story centers on Ned Weaver, an artist made famous for his paintings of resplendent landscapes.

"Holy crap. What was I thinking when I decided to take this on?" That's what Sonja Sohn said last week shortly after I joined her at a coffee shop. Fortunately, she wasn't having second thoughts about our interview but wondering how to handle a mishap with a printer that might hamper the promotion of a volunteer event she was planning now that the battery on her laptop was dead. Her phone soon followed suit. Ms. Sohn is better known to some as Shakima Greggs, a detective from the HBO series "The Wire," a five-season indictment of America's war on drugs that examined poverty, political corruption and structural racism from the back alley to the penthouse in minute detail and made Baltimore more infamous than it already was. If "The Iliad" and "The Odyssey" had been set in an American city, they could hardly have been more dramatic.
