This is really embarrassing. Last Sunday I reported that Guglielmo Marconi was the inventor of the telegraph. Big mistake. A torrent of messages arrived to note the error. Well, not a torrent, since we are trying to be accurate here. Quite a few, though. Of course Marconi did not invent the telegraph. Samuel F.B. Morse did that. Marconi invented wireless telegraphy. This was an especially egregious error considering the association between this city and this newspaper and Morse's invention.

Maryland coaches noticed something unusual when they reviewed the game video from the 63-0 loss to Florida State last Saturday. Before Maryland would snap the ball, Seminoles defensive lineman Mario Edwards Jr. would occasionally point to the sky as if signaling that he knew a pass was coming. Was Maryland somehow telegraphing its intentions to run or pass? Maryland offensive coordinator Mike Locksley said today that the Terps need to avoid any pre-snap behavior or stances that give the defense clues.

MORRISTOWN, N.J. - Answer this: What technology made possible nearly instantaneous communications worldwide, thereby giving rise to revolutionary business practices, brand-new forms of crime, information overload, long-distance romances and armies of geeks? If you answered "the Internet," you are, of course, absolutely right. But if you said, "the telegraph" not only are you also right but you understand a contrary notion about contemporary scientific developments. It goes as follows: New inventions often take us to exactly where we have been before.

Over the weekend, a demolition crew turned One, a chic night club for most of the last decade, into a pile of brick, broken cinderblock and sand. If you're of a certain age and missed One's run as a nightclub, you will know this location, at Guilford Avenue and Saratoga Street, as House of Welsh Corner. Instead of big dance floors and theatrically-lighted bars stocked with Dom Perignon, you'll think of a classic Baltimore tavern that served sizzling steaks on metal plates and Maryland whiskey at a bar without stools.

I come to London for the signage ("Danger: Men working overhead"), and to pick up a tube of Euthymol toothpaste and devour a cup of Mr. Whippy lemon ice and a package of chocolate HobNobs, and to enjoy the roomy taxicabs and the cabbies' no-hesitation style of driving, their bold U-turns, and to observe the gilded gates and the Mounted Guards and all the storybook tinges of aristocracy so dear to us Americans. And terrific theater. Saw a beautiful performance by puppets - life-sized horses in War Horse at the National Theatre - shells of horses with visible frames and legs of two puppeteers inside, another manipulating the head, yet the sight of the beasts grazing, nuzzling, shying, rearing up was the most perfect and believable thing I've seen onstage in a long time.

This week, in 1888, Baltimore caught the edges of what The Sun described as "one of the severest blizzards ever known on the Middle Atlantic coast." Cold air swept down from Lake Superior, while a powerful storm swirled north from Cape Hatteras. Ice, winds to 48 mph, and up to a foot of snow cut off telegraph and telephone communications with harder-hit cities to the north. Northwest winds dropped the Chesapeake tides 5 feet, emptying parts of the tidal Potomac and Baltimore harbor.

BERKELEY, Calif. -- Depending on whom you ask, the reason Cody's Books is going out of business is because of the city of Berkeley, the homeless, the University of California, the war in Iraq, Ronald Reagan, the Internet or the lack of short-term parking. Or all of the above. What is certain is that come next month, Cody's - the famed independent bookseller where Allen Ginsberg once howled, Mario Savio once clerked and Salman Rushdie defied a fatwa - will close its doors after a half-century.
