I suspect puckish intent in the incomparable Kory Stamper's post at harm-less drudg-ery  on the prescriptivist-descriptivist divide. Though I have commended "A Compromise: How To Be A Reasonable Prescriptivist" to you previously, I would like to admire a couple of the finer points.  Though the overall intent and tone are as irenic as anyone could wish, I noticed a few sly touches guaranteed to rattle the peeververein. A terminal preposition was the least. There was also a "the hoi polloi.

Kadie Stamper wasn't having it. The more her mother tried to convince her to play lacrosse, the more Stamper resisted. She already played basketball, softball and soccer -- and was itching to join a football and wrestling team -- but lacrosse? "I hated it when I first played, just thought it was so dumb," recalled Stamper, now a senior standout for No. 6 C. Milton Wright. "It was all the whistles, all the restrictions and not enough checks. I didn't want to play at all." Stamper was ultimately convinced to give lacrosse a try the old-fashioned way: She was bribed.

At harm-less drudg-ery , the nonpareil Kory Stamper of Merriam-Webster reflects on what wany people want of a dictionary : Authority, Morality, Law-giving, Bet-settling. She contrasts that with what dictionaries humbly offer instead: words and how people use them.  Here's a key sentence: We enter the words “murder” and “headcheese” into the dictionary, but that shouldn't be read as advocacy for trying either one of them.  I commend the entire essay to you. It is an hoot.

It was cold and her team was tired after 56 minutes of up-and-down lacrosse, so C. Milton Wright senior midfielder Kadie Stamper decided to take matters into her own hands. Awarded the first draw of the second overtime after a foul called on St. Mary's, Stamper burst through the middle, eluded two checks and fired a shot past Saints goalie Allie Buote, giving the seventh-ranked and host Mustangs a 9-8 victory over No. 6 St. Mary's in the nonconference season opener for both teams. The goal, which came on a low shot just 15 seconds into the sudden-death overtime, was Stamper's fourth of the game.

After beating No. 5 South River in Friday night's state semifinal, C. Milton Wright's third-ranked girls lacrosse team avoided the temptation to celebrate too much. "We made sure that wasn't it," said Mustangs defender Sarah Gallion. "We still had one more huge step to go, so we just focused." The Mustangs took that last step last night, rolling past Westminster, 19-6, for the state Class 4A-3A championship at UMBC Stadium. The crown was the first for the Mustangs in nine trips to the state tournament and four trips to the final.

C. Milton Wright's Kadie Stamper has put on quite a show against quality girls lacrosse teams in Anne Arundel County this week. The senior midfielder made use of drama in Monday's win over No. 6 St. Mary's, scoring the game-winner in double overtime. As for last night's game at No. 12 South River, variety turned out to be her calling card. With four goals, an assist, strong and effective work on draws and a take-charge presence in the closing minutes, Stamper led the No. 7 Mustangs to a well-earned, 11-9 win over the Seahawks in Edgewater.

Asked for a comparison, Wilde Lake football coach Doug DuVall quickly likened this year's team - which will play in the Class 3A state semifinal game Friday - to the 1997 state champion Wildecats. "Yeah, very similar [to ] the team that won in 1997 - a lot of balance and they play like crazy for each other," he said. After a sturdy 26-6 win at North Harford to win the East region, the Wildecats (10-2) will meet Damascus in the state semifinal game at 7 p.m. Friday at M&T Bank Stadium.

Watching that great but miscast actor Liam Neeson glower his way through Kinsey, I kept thinking how much more fun Warren Beatty would have had with the part. Throughout Beatty's career, his innate erotic confidence has empowered him to play impotence (in Bonnie and Clyde), abstinence (in parts of Reds) and middle-aged panic (in Bulworth). Sexual befuddlement is not beyond his range. In fact, it's with a combination of ardor and confusion that Beatty began his film career and became an instant star.

PLAYER OF THE YEAR Kadie Stamper C. Milton Wright As a midfielder, Stamper gave the Mustangs a little of everything. The junior led the team in scoring with 37 goals and 31 assists, and was particularily effective offensively in big moments. Against Dulaney in the Class 3A state semifinals, Stamper scored four goals to key the C. Milton Wright comeback as the Mustangs advanced to the state finals, where they lost, 9-8, to Broadneck. In a regular-season meeting with Bel Air, who came into the game undefeated, Stamper helped the Mustangs stop an early Bobcats flurry with three goals and two assists in a 10-5 victory.
