On a recent, unseasonably warm Thursday night, Federal Hill was jumping with people out on dates - out for happy hour, out for dinner. But Spoons, the laid-back coffee shop that's been a Cross Street fixture since 1999, was quiet, with just a few tables filled. With a menu featuring an intriguingly global mix of comfort foods and service that's friendly and prompt, Spoons is worthy of a little more bustle at dinner time. But, please, not too much more bustle. When the restaurant's owners, Shane Anderson, John Allen, Bernard Kayes and Deborah Cogan, decided last fall to add dinner to Spoons' repertoire, they recognized that the mellow atmosphere offered a welcome alternative to many of Federal Hill's more manic spots.

WASHINGTON - There is an old proverb that says, "If you're going to sup with the devil, use a long spoon." Does the White House pantry have any long spoons? I ask because if President Bush really wants to achieve his objectives in Iraq, he may have to sup a little with Yasser Arafat, the Iranian leader Ali Khamenei and Syria's president, Bashar Assad. First, let me state my own bias: Iraq is the whole ballgame. If we can produce a reasonably decent, constitutionally grounded Iraqi government, good things will happen all around the Middle East.

Spoons in Federal Hill is glamming it up. The menu has expanded, and a new (old) face is in the kitchen. Champagne Tony is back in town. The Federal Hill cafe, which opened in 1999, has shifted gears slightly. Spoons will still operate as a classic coffeehouse during the day, serving breakfast and sandwiches, the kind of place where folks curl up with a laptop for hours. Laura Lippman will still be able to come in to pound out a Tess Monoghan procedural. But at night, Spoons gets a little more romantic, a little Lady and the Trampish, maybe.

ABOARD ASSA ABLOY - We're continuing to charge our way north toward Barbuda. Winds have been steady for the past two days, allowing us to make good speed toward the finish. We are working hard to claw our way back toward illbruck. She is approximately 10 miles ahead, and we gained two miles in the last report. Tyco is now six miles behind us. We need to be patient and be ready for the next opportunity to pass illbruck. This should be in a few days when we have to deal with an approaching front making its way through the Bahamas.

Despite the use of note-enhancing software, the music had to feel human. When Spoon entered the studio in late 2006 to work on Ga Ga Ga Ga Ga, the indie-rock band's acclaimed sixth studio album released in July, the quartet wanted to ride on pure inspiration. Although the result is largely precise and streamlined, the flubs and distorted noises here and there give the music a certain warmth. "There's a fine line with that. There's a balance we're just good at," says Spoon lead vocalist and chief songwriter Britt Daniel.

At my house, we make soup in the winter. We do this because, as the French chef Auguste Escoffier once said, "Soup puts the heart at ease, calms down the violence of hunger, eliminates the tension of the day and awakens and refines the appetite." And we do it because soup is relatively easy to assemble and results in terrific leftovers. Moreover, we make soup because it is warm and January in Baltimore is cold. I have downed a lot of soup in my time. But until recently, when I became schooled on soup etiquette by reading a variety of soup Web sites, the best being Soupsong, I was unaware of the fine points of genteel soup sipping.

Liberty Reservoir, especially the portion extending from the area off the Nicodemus Bridge to the Route 140 Bridge dividing Carroll and Baltimore counties, is a virtual crappie factory.Most crappie fans use live minnows or jigs for bait because well, that's what crappie anglers are supposed to use."Baloney," retorts Jay Keller, of Westminster. Keller, who regularly targets Liberty crappie, swears by spoons during the pre- and post-spawn periods when the fish are suspended on humps, long points or break-lines in deep water.

Richard Clayton from Odenton was looking for a recipe for making Spoon Bread from scratch. Rita Gifford from Timonium sent in a recipe that she said was given to her by a former professor many years. The recipe was written and fired on a decorative ceramic plague and she has had it hanging in her kitchen for 20-plus years. Although called "bread," the classic Southern-style spoon bread is closer in consistency and taste to a savory pudding or soufflé. It is meant to be served with a spoon hot out of the oven, hence the name.

Even a baseball novice could've told you which high school pitcher would make the majors. At a lean 6 feet 4 with a fastball that crossed 95 mph and uncommon poise for a teenager, McDonogh's Brandon Erbe could have been cast by Hollywood as a young Jim Palmer. Chorye Spoone? Well, the player from Northeast High was a chunky kid with an unruly temper whose fastball topped out at 87 mph. But a funny thing has happened since the two local pitchers were picked by their hometown Orioles in the 2005 draft.

Yara Cheikh expected her pediatrician to diagnose the sickly rattle in her infant son's chest as a bacterial infection. "I went in looking for antibiotics," said the Towson mother of four. The pediatrician made a different call: Nine-month-old Hugh DeBrabander's illness was viral, an infection antibiotics are powerless against. Cheikh accepted the explanation and was happy to spare her son an unnecessary dose of medication. Not all young children are so fortunate. Many receive ineffective or even dangerous drugs for common illnesses such as colds, flu, sore throats and earaches.

"Even my worst days as attorney general have been better than my father's best days." One doesn't want to begrudge Alberto R. Gonzales a brief, self-indulgent moment of mawkishness as he ignominiously departs the public stage. But one of his main problems was that mawkish self-indulgence was often his defining contribution to the public debate. To the bitter end, Mr. Gonzales remained the most self-involved attorney general in modern memory. (Full disclosure: My wife worked for him and his predecessor.
