The title of Bernard Knox's scintillating collection of essays does not allude to the Michael J. Fox movie, itself nearly a decade into the past. As the director emeritus of Harvard's Center for Hellenic Studies in Washington points out, the title's source lies in the early Greek concept of the future lying behind us.In other words, the past and the present are in front of us since we can see them. The future, invisible, is behind. Therefore we walk blind, backward into the future, rather than facing the future as we advance.

The Ravens' season ended several weeks ago, but quarterback Joe Flacco remains a hot topic of discussion. So far this offseason we have heard that Flacco was irked by the firing of quarterbacks coach Jim Zorn , that coach John Harbaugh thinks the Ravens can "win championships" with Flacco and that the three-year veteran was the "king of holding the ball too long" in 2010 . Flacco came and remained under fire after the Ravens' stomach-punch...

Unless he was prescient, he couldn't have known anything about school nicknames or the agony of an 0-11 football season. But Noah Webster's dictionary gives one definition of the word crusade as, "vigorous, concerted action for some cause or idea, or against some abuse."The Cardinal Gibbons Crusaders certainly experienced abuse last year. After swapping its Maryland Scholastic Association B Conference schedule to an undermanned Dunbar team just before the season opened, Gibbons, with only 200 boys in grades 9-12, went winless against A Conference opponents.

Orioles second baseman Brian Roberts' work this spring has been confined to the back fields of the Ed Smith Stadium complex, but on Tuesday he took a considerable step forward in his recovery from multiple concussions by participating in pre-game batting practice and fielding drills before the Orioles' Grapefruit League game against the Rays.   “I think my doctor would probably agree that getting in an environment where there's a lot going on, that's a big step because that's a part of the progression ... trying to re-acclimate into those environments,” Roberts said.

Maryland was recently ranked 46th in the nation for transparency, but a new law could put the state ahead with a policy requiring that data be made more easily accessible to the public. Though officials post a good deal of public information on Maryland's StateStat database, advocates of open government say that data can be hard to evaluate, search and use because it is not formatted in a way that computers can easily scan. The Maryland Open Data Policy, passed by the General Assembly and signed into law by Gov. Martin O'Malley this month, requires the state to make much of its public information machine-readable and searchable.

Normandy, France.--By June 6, 1944, the cream of the Wehrmacht, 2 million men, had been killed in Russia. And still the Normandy invasion was a hard-won success. If Hitler had not been a habitual late sleeper, if that morning he had unleashed the panzer divisions north of Paris, which Rommel might have got him to do if Rommel had not been in Germany for his wife's birthday, the war could have been even longer.But even before D-Day the defeat of Germany was certain.Any war is a braided cord of related battles.

"Clapton plays the blues."Not exactly stop-the-presses news, is it? After all, Eric Clapton has been playing the blues (or something like them) since he started making records some 29 years ago with the Yardbirds. In that time, he's paid tribute to everyone from Robert Johnson and Muddy Waters to Albert King and Robert Cray, building a reputation as one of English rock's premier bluesmen in the process.So it probably seems silly to say there's anything novel about the all-blues approach he adopts for "From the Cradle" (Reprise 45735, arriving in stores today)

The developer of Harbor East has dipped its toes back into Baltimore's tenuous condominium market, presenting the city with new plans for long-stalled luxury residences atop the Four Seasons Hotel. The design calls for 63 condominiums instead of the roughly 150 initially envisioned in a project that the developer said still could be scrapped. The uncertainty highlights Baltimore's tentative condo market. While sales numbers and prices suggest that the market is rebounding, condos remain an uncommon, often premium product in Baltimore, and many developers remain unconvinced that there is sufficient demand.

There's evidence of limited snow-blower activity in my Baltimore neighborhood. I didn't see anyone operating a snow blower and I didn't hear a snow blower. All I'm saying is, there's evidence of snow-blower activity in my neighborhood -- and it's not at my house. The snow-blowing apparently occurred directly after our first blizzard, in the wee hours of Sunday morning, when most of us were sleeping. (The machine must have been equipped with a special snow-blower silencer, because we never heard it.)

Those who have followed the years-long saga of the Gateway School site in Clarksville might be experiencing deja vu after County Executive Ken Ulman's announcement last week that the county had reached a deal to sell the 7.8-acre parcel for $5 million to a developer for a commercial project that would stand out for its environment- and pedestrian-friendly design. If the statement had a familiar ring, it's because the county made essentially the same announcement in May 2010 - the same price, the same land on Clarksville Pike across from the River Hill village center, the same developer and the same celebration of the promise of the project.
