You know the story about William Faulkner at the Oxford, Mississippi, post office, don't you? Sacked for sitting in the back reading the magazines instead of waiting on customers, he said, "Good, now I won't be at the beck and call of every son of a bitch that's got two cents. "  Well, when The Sun sent me off on my [cough] sabbatical [cough] in 2009 and I set up the blog at a new location, I decided that I no longer had to be at the beck and call of the Associated Press Stylebook . So I gladly adopted the Oxford comma and suited my own preferences in other matters.

A Baltimore jury has awarded nearly $2.1 million to a 17-year-old city youth who was allegedly poisoned by lead paint in the 1990s when he was a toddler in an East Baltimore rental home. The judgment against Elliot Dackman and the estates of Sandra and Bernard Dackman came Friday in Baltimore Circuit Court, at the end of the weeklong trial of a lawsuit brought on behalf of Daquantay Robinson by his mother, Tiesha Robinson. The jury verdict shows the long-running tide of litigation over the widespread use of lead-based paint in Baltimore's older rental housing has yet to ebb, according to Bruce Powell, the Robinsons' lawyer.

Former coach Mike Leach sued ESPN Inc. and a public relations firm on Wednesday, accusing them of libel and slander after he was fired by Texas Tech amid accusations that he mistreated a player suffering from a concussion. The suit filed in Texas district court claims the network's coverage of Leach's firing last year was "willful and negligent defamation" and that it failed to "retract false and damaging statements" it made from "misinformation" provided to ESPN by Craig James , the father of the Texas Tech player.

The conniving politician at the center of the Netflix drama "House of Cards" is named Frank, but he's anything but honest, forthright and direct. His wife was christened Claire - an ironic choice for a woman who always has an ulterior motive. Even the couple's surname, "Underwood," hints at their hypocrisy by echoing "underhanded. " It's costume designer Johanna Argan's job to subliminally convey that duplicity to the audience through the clothes the characters wear. "The other characters think they're getting one thing from Frank and Claire," Argan said in a phone interview.

Earlier in the summer, I met the gentleman who will craft my wedding day attire, Derrick C. King. He is one of the tailors at Christopher Schafer Clothier and was recently named Best Tailor by Fashion Awards MD. I first met King last year at a Capital Area Gay & Lesbian Chamber of Commerce expo, where he helped me pick out an awesome pink and blue tie. We've kept in contact ever since, and after seeing his designs on Facebook, I thought he would be...

Investors based in Utah gained access to confidential information about the project by offering to help refinance it, according to the suit filed by developer Patrick Turner, Thomas Fore, and their companies affiliated with the Westport project.

Congratulations! It takes a great deal of courage to publish an editorial (Oct. 6) in a one-party state advocating fair boundaries in congressional districts. While most people prefer natural boundaries instead of political-party-count boundaries, professional politicians would rather draw snake-shaped districts to retain their personal power. It has nothing to do with giving the people what they want, but rather with grabbing the golden ring and a personal pedestal of honor.

For the past 400 years, the suit has been considered appropriate attire for everything from country walks and horseback riding to the ordinary office job and luncheons with the first lady. The suit's strong shoulders seem to exude an aura of power and is what many fashion historians consider the reason for this enduring style. As the suit has evolved, so has its role. Suits are designed for casual and evening apparel alike, but there is no mistaking that when you think “suit” you think “business,” you think “success.” Women in business everywhere know the power of a good image.

Maryland basketball player Dez Wells is filing suit against Xavier, claiming he was wrongfully dismissed by the school after being accused of sexual assault by a student during his freshman year in 2012. Wells was never criminally charged - a prosecutor said there was no basis for action - but was expelled by the university. Now Wells, who transferred to Maryland before last season and immediately became a starter, is legally challenging the procedure that Xavier used to dismiss him. “In July 2012, Wells was falsely accused of sexual assault,” according to a copy of the suit.

In a clearing off of a wooded lane in Stevenson is a white stucco, Tuscan-style villa with ornate cast-iron window boxes spilling summer vines, looking like the subject of an impressionist painting. Inside, beyond the driveway and the arched, two-story center bay, the Iliev family - Martin and Jessica, their 3-year old son, Max, and a pair of toy poodles, Sophie and Tiger - welcome visitors to their newly built home. In a large, open kitchen dominated by a center island that's topped with a 9-by-6-foot slab of white quartz, the Ilievs recalled purchasing the 4-acre parcel of land.

The number of homes for sale in the Baltimore metro region climbed to the highest level in nearly three years last month, but closed sales failed to follow suit, a mismatch that reflects weakness in the housing market, analysts said. Sales in Baltimore City and the five surrounding counties dipped in July, falling 2 percent to 2,945, according to a monthly report published Monday. Meanwhile, the number of homes on the market rose 22.5 percent year-over-year, reaching 13,856 — more than any time since November 2011, according to the data provided by RealEstate Business Intelligence, a subsidiary of the MRIS multiple listing service.

Before he opted out of his minor league contract with the Orioles, veteran left-hander Randy Wolf unleashed a pitch that hit the suite level at Harbor Park in Norfolk. It seems like he did it on purpose. David Hall, who covers the Tides for The Virginian-Pilot, relayed a bizarre story in his piece on the Tides' 2-1 win Sunday . Hall said that in Wolf's last appearance, he warned manager Ron Johnson that something strange was going to happen. Hall wrote: During Game 1 on Saturday, he threw a pitch that sailed to the top of the grandstand and bounded off the facade of a suite.

A Baltimore judge ruled this week that she will not enforce her decision to dismiss a multimillion-dollar lawsuit filed by the former developers of the "Superblock" until an appellate court rules on the case. City officials expressed disappointment with the ruling, which they said could further slow development of the long-stalled project on Baltimore's west side. "It's always frustrating to me when the legal process is protracted and it prevents meaningful development in the city," Mayor Stephanie Rawlings-Blake said.

Two men who are accused of beating a fan at an Orioles game last year danced to the song "YMCA" as their victim lay bleeding with a fractured skull on a concrete floor below them, the man alleges in a $5 million lawsuit filed last week. Matthew Fortese, who was 25 at the time of the alleged attack, says Gregory Fleishman and Michael David Bell taunted him and his date during a game between the Orioles and the Washington Nationals last May at Camden Yards. When the Hagerstown man tried to confront them, he says in the lawsuit, Fleishman "sucker punched" him in the head, sending him to intensive care.

Michael Scheyer lost his wife five years ago, then lost work as demand for electricians withered with the economy. Things have been so tight that he recently went through some old boxes in a back room at his North Carolina home to see if there might be anything in there he could sell. What he turned up might just belong in a museum - or an aquarium: an old-fashioned yellow-and-red striped bathing suit, zebra-striped bathrobe and inflatable Donald Duck. Looks a whole lot like the Victorian swim suit and props that William Donald Schaefer used in his famous 1981 dip in the aquarium seal pool.

Anthony Mayes was nearing age 50 when he got the first suit he ever owned, a dark gray Armani, and it seemed life, at last, would be better. He'd just been released from his latest time behind bars, making it about 22 years of his life total, for an array of charges including drugs and armed robbery. He said he's determined to make his most recent six-month stint his last, and sees the clothes - suit, shirt, tie, dress shoes - as part of that effort. "They make me feel important, like I can succeed," said Mayes, 49, who believes he's been given "an opportunity to redeem myself.

As primary elections approach in Maryland, one begins to research the candidates and their issues; as someone especially aware of environmental issues, I think the choice is clear regarding who would best lead Maryland as its next governor. And I think The Sun does, too. Was it her decision to take public funding for her campaign rather than accept who knows how much from who knows which corporations? Or was it her strong stance against fracking and Cove Point? Her plan for better education and equal opportunity throughout the state?

No one will argue that the Orioles' offense could use a bit of a boost. Whether two men who joined them Thursday in batting practice could provide it is a different conversation entirely. Former Orioles Harold Reynolds and Brady Anderson were in full uniform yesterday before the Orioles' 3-1 loss to Houston, with Reynolds taking his hacks in the batting cage and trying to regain his late-80s All-Star form. Reynolds, now an MLB Network analyst, will broadcast today's Civil Rights Game in Houston.
