Regarding letter writer David Kulick's comment on shoveling out parking spaces after a snowstorm, one has to ask what fairy-tale world he lives on ( "The chair in the parking space: A symbol of incivility," Feb. 19). When a 77-year-old man spends three hours digging his car out of the snow on the one-way street where he has lived for 20 years in order to drive to the drugstore to pick up a needed prescription, he's entitled to have a parking space on returning. Good, civic-minded neighbors recognize that to barge into a parking space someone else has cleared is the antithesis of mutual civic duty.

As we reported last night, the salary of Joe Blanton is a sticking point in a deal to bring the husky right-hander to Baltimore. The Orioles just aren't paying $3 million or anything close to it for a two-month rental, No. 4-type starter So if not Blanton, whom do the Orioles get to put in their starting rotation? There aren't a lot of choices. Lefty Jason Vargas long has been a guy the Orioles have liked - they talked about dealing for him this winter. And Vargas is having a solid year, albeit with his home games at Safeco Field.

It was Baltimore steaming hot even after the sun set, and I didn't get to see the big street protest scene that I came to see filmed for "House of Cards. " But after two hours Wednesday night of standing around on Centre Street with about 40 others, most of whom seemed to have some connection with the Peabody Institute where the crew was filming or were drinking at the Anchor bar across the street, there was Kevin Spacey standing in the street in tuxedo pants and a T-shirt with his suspenders hanging down around his knees.

Tonight on a three-hour edition of Raw, Vince McMahon returns to WWE TV for the first time since October 2011.  This is a very interesting situation for many reasons. For one, ratings in the United States have taken a dip. Though Nielsen ratings are not a completely accurate measure of performance, it is often used by many as a measuring stick of success. In the past four episodes, Raw has seen this trend: June 4: 2.92 rating May 28 (Memorial Day): 2.72 rating May 21: 3.0 rating May 14: 2.9 rating The average rating for Raw in 2012, from the beginning of February to the end of April, in the U.S. is 3.16.
