With Real Quiet hurt and Victory Gallop, Free House and Silver Charm retired, racing lacks a star. Could the next headliner be bedded down at Pimlico?That's the residence of Stellar Brush, a late-developing 3-year-old trained by Richard W. Small and bred and owned by Robert E. Meyerhoff. Stellar Brush could probably hold his own against the top 3-year-olds at Saratoga, but Small and Meyerhoff have mapped an alternate route through Delaware Park, Prairie Meadows, Thistledown, Remington Park, Louisiana Downs and the Meadowlands -- not exactly the major leagues of horse racing.

Sure, keyboard costs $190, but has heft, tool for switching key capsFirst, let me go ahead and say it: $190 is a lot to pay for a keyboard, especially one that isn't split in the middle, shaped to reduce wrist strain, or otherwise configured to help you avoid filing for workman's compensation. The Avant Stellar is not the keyboard for everyone -- but it is the keyboard for the typing enthusiast.The Avant Stellar uses the same basic design as the Northgate Omnikey, a popular workhorse from the pre-mouse PC era. It has mechanical switches instead of the now-standard membrane switches on today's cheap keyboards.

STOCKTON, Calif. -- The Blast ended a season-high four-game losing streak last night with a convincing 20-9 victory over the California Cougars, the team it last defeated, more than a month ago. The victory, which was in doubt despite the Blast's 8-0 first-quarter lead, marked the first for the Blast on the road. Brian Rowland was stellar in goal for the Blast (5-6), shutting out the Cougars (5-9) over two quarters and making 17 saves. Mike Lookingland was among six Blast players to score, but his fourth-quarter strike with 9:48 remaining proved to be the game-winner.

The murder of 20 children and seven adults in Connecticut brings 2012 to a shocking and sad end. Perhaps a few uplifting stories will dominate the year's waning days, providing a holiday boost. And we should remember the inspiring sub-stories from Newtown, like the heroics of 27-year-old teacher Victoria Soto, who sacrificed her life to save her students. Although the nation's grief is still raw, the Connecticut tragedy obscures the fact that 2012 was a good year in many ways.
