It was a small moment, but decades later, Martha Thorn remembers it well. Decorated Vietnam War veteran and best-selling author James Webb was returning to the Naval Academy in the 1980s and had to prepare for an interview in Annapolis with Good Morning America. Webb, now a Democratic senator from Virginia, wanted a refresher on the "Boat School" from which he had graduated in 1968, so he sent a host of questions to the academy's public affairs office, hoping to be ready for anything the morning show would throw at him. Thorn prepared "gobs and gobs of information" and faxed it to Webb just before the interview, and when he arrived at the academy, he noticed her name tag and thanked her graciously.

No one wants to be a downer when writing about opening day especially when the Orioles pull off a comeback victory like they did Friday over the Minnesota Twins by a score of 9-5. But  MASN's telecast of the home opener featuring Gary Thorne, Jim Palmer and Mike Bordick was nowhere near worthy of the play on the field by the Orioles. Someone needs to tell the boys in the booth it's the Orioles who made the playoffs last year - not them - and it's time for them to raise their games.

Some months ago, one Clark Elder Morrow published a screed in The Vocabula Review attacking the Oxford English Dictionary for admitting into its sacred precincts vile things that are "not even words. " Ill-informed and dogmatic prescriptivism is one of the heaviest crosses those of us who aspire to be reasonable and moderate prescriptivists must bear. I responded to Mr. Morrow's post in a post of my own, "I fear that the gentleman is a coxcomb. "  I discover, sadly, that my worst fears have been realized.

Crofton Elementary's lunch is a series of six tightly choreographed shifts that takes up nearly three hours, twice as long as at most elementary schools. Classroom space in the school is so limited that a special education class meets in what used to be a guidance counselor's office. Over capacity by 200 students, the school houses the overflow in 11 portables that hem the school building in from the sides and back. "It can be very frustrating," Principal Donna O'Shea said. A new redistricting plan approved by the school board last week seeks to solve Crofton's woes by moving 210 of the elementary school's students from the Walden community to the new Gambrills-area elementary school, which will open on Nantucket Drive this fall with a capacity of 713 students.
