Ralph Steadman says he likes the Ralph Steadman of "For No Good Reason. " And that, perhaps, is a problem. "I think it makes me too nice - too pleasant, yes," says the 78-year-old British cartoonist whose manic style long served as the perfect complement for Hunter S. Thompson's gonzo ravings. "I think I should be a little grumpier. I should say something like Scrooge - you know, 'Bah, humbug!'" A delighted chuckle follows, leaving it an open question whether the subject of director Charlie Paul's 15-years-in-the-making documentary, which opens today, really means what he says.

Mary Lee Steadman, who assisted her late sportswriter husband, John F. Steadman, in the production of his six books, died June 1 of dementia at St. Joseph Medical Center. She was 83. The daughter of a firefighter and homemaker, Mary Lee Kreafle was born in Baltimore and spent her early years near Mondawmin, before moving to Ednor Gardens when she was in the eighth grade. She was a 1947 graduate of Catholic High School and worked for the Maryland Casualty Co. before her marriage in 1953 to John Steadman, who was then a News-Post sportswriter and was later named sports editor of the News American in 1958.

READERS OF The Sun have seen several tributes to sportswriter John Steadman in the past week. I hope you will forgive me if I offer another. Louis Grasmick, a friend of Steadman's, thanked me for attending the funeral Friday. "There's no way I couldn't have," I answered. Sounds cliched, but it is nonetheless true: Steadman's death made many feel as if they had lost a dear friend or relative. I grew up reading him. I told that to Steadman when I first met him, here in the newsroom offices one afternoon shortly after I became a columnist.

It's been said that John Steadman, the legendary Baltimore sports columnist who died this week, was one of the rubber chicken circuit's most devoted and beloved participants whose appearances before various groups probably equaled that of Brooks Robinson. It was a point of pride that if a veterans or church group, nursing home seniors, sports fans or students requested an appearance, Steadman showed up. There was never any talk of a speaker's fee, either. It's also been said that he's probably seen more church basements, auditoriums, nursing homes, retirement communities and schools than an insurance inspector.

NEW YORK -- How bad is Steadman Security Co. at managing mutual funds?"Wretched," said Don Phillips, publisher of Chicago-based Morningstar Mutual Funds, which gauges the performance of mutual funds. "It is almost farcical that someone can produce results that are so consistently bad.""If they aren't the worst, they're a serious contender," said Bob Powell, editor of Mutual Fund Marketing News, a newsletter based in Boston.Steadman runs three closed-end funds and one open fund, with varying investment aims.

TAMPA, Fla. - Ernie Accorsi will wear one to the Super Bowl on Sunday at Raymond James Stadium. So will some writers in the press box. Anyone who has one of the ties John Steadman faithfully gave out as presents over the years should wear it Sunday when the Ravens and Giants play. If you don't have one, just wearing a tie, period, would suffice as a way of honoring Baltimore's sportswriting landmark, who died on New Year's Day after battling cancer for two years. Steadman was almost as well known for wearing ties and giving them as gifts as he was for his love of pro football.

THE WORLD'S worst mutual funds are about to be reborn. The question is: Who in their right mind would buy funds with records so hideous that they are the poster children for everything that can go wrong in investing? The Ameritor funds - formerly the Steadman funds - are about to undergo radical changes in the hope of shaking their disgraceful past and attracting new investors. Ironically, the move comes at a time when the industry trend has been to forget the past by closing losers. The Ameritor funds were created in 1998 from the wreckage of the Steadman funds, which started in the 1930s and prospered into the 1960s.

Thomas Steadman knows his brother would not have wanted all the attention. At the same time, John Steadman, longtime local sportswriter, editor and columnist who died of cancer in January, would have wanted to do anything in his power to help others. Realizing that, Thomas Steadman happily allowed his brother's name to be used for the American Cancer Society's Tournament of Hope golf tournament to be held Sept. 11 at Beechtree Golf Club in Aberdeen. "We were thrilled to be able to do it," Steadman said.

A patient in an experimental breast cancer vaccine trial, one that was the subject of a series in The Baltimore Sun, has raised more than $14,000 to go toward that research. She presented the check Friday to the doctor overseeing the study. Darby Steadman, a Severna Park mother of two who received the vaccine for her metastatic breast cancer, presented the check to Dr. Leisha Emens, her Johns Hopkins oncologist. Steadman and some friends held a December fundraiser that brought in most of the money.

Investors are being offered the chance to drink from the Holy Grail of mutual funds, buying into a mysterious vessel with legendary powers, and yet the very opportunity to use the great chalice could prove that the whole idea is more fantasy than reality. For the first time since 1982, the Sequoia fund is opening its doors to new investors. If ever there was a legendary fund, this is it. Sequoia is the mutual fund started by Warren E. Buffett's stockbroker; Bill Ruane was a friend of Buffett when he co-founded Sequoia in 1970, at a time when Buffett was liquidating his investment partnership and advising his clients to take their cash to Sequoia.

One thing fund investors know for sure about 2008: We won't have the Ameritor Investment fund to kick around any more. Inarguably the worst mutual fund in history, it's one of hundreds of funds that were snuffed out of existence in 2007. Mutual funds aren't human, so their death - whether by liquidation or merger - does not diminish us the way the passing of a friend or loved one does. While there is no mourning period, it would be wrong to ignore for whom the bell tolled, if only because some funds leave behind a legacy of lessons for fund investors.

Pikesville had the right strategy to challenge No. 5 Century in last night's state Class 2A-1A girls lacrosse championship at UMBC Stadium, but not enough firepower to prevent the Knights from winning their second straight title. Jenny Steadman scored seven goals and Katie Schwarzmann added four as the Knights dominated the second half en route to a 15-5 victory and their third Class 2A-1A crown in four years Last year, the Panthers fell to the Knights, 16-6, in the championship and, last night, they planned to stifle Century's quick-strike attack.

The late John Steadman, longtime sports columnist for The Sun, Evening Sun and News American, probably wrote as much about John Unitas as any writer. Some excerpts from Steadman's columns: Unitas was a talent unto himself. Physically strong, mentally alert, quietly defiant in the face of all challenges and beyond intimidation. Respected by the men on the other side of the scrimmage line, as well as revered by teammates. A guard named Art Spinney, who played to his left, referred to him as the "meal ticket."

John Steadman, the late Baltimore sports columnist, was definitely responsible for Colts tight end John Mackey having a hard time getting inducted into the Pro Football Hall of Fame. Steadman was on the board of selectors for years, and there was always speculation that he didn't vote for Mackey, which made it almost impossible for Mackey to get in. The year before Mackey was inducted in 1992, I wrote a story for The Sun about Mackey not getting enough votes. I interviewed Steadman, then a sports columnist for The Evening Sun. My story quoted Steadman as saying Mackey shouldn't be in because he dropped a lot of passes and didn't have good hands.
