Guess how I came to know that April 14-20 marks the 55th National Library Week? Before I give away the answer, you might appreciate that this observance started in the 1950s to combat Americans' growing preference for radios and televisions over books. Over half a century later, libraries are now being threatened by our growing preference for Internet and social media. I had no idea about libraries when I first stepped into one, at the ripe age of 1. My mother tells me that I was excited for story time (though not yet foreseeing my addiction for the books that would come to define my childhood)

Alex Johnson never questioned that his honeymoon in Jamaica had to end on Friday, because he knew that come the next morning, he'd be parked at his favorite pub in Fells Point. The U.S. was set to play his beloved English national team in the World Cup, and that's not something you mess around with if you're one of the regular patrons at Slainte, where the bar motto proclaims, "Soccer is religion!" "I'll put it this way," said Johnson, a native of Sheffield, England, who moved to Baltimore four years ago. "I'm way more nervous about this than I was about my wedding."
