With the 100th anniversary of the Titanic, there should be a renewed interest in "A Night to Remember," Baltimorean Walter Lord's recreation of the ship's sinking. It is a classic in the dramatiuc retelling of an historical event, and you could draw a straight line to more recent books such as Sebastian Junger's "A Perfect Storm" or Jon Krakauer's "Into Thin Air. " From the first pages, Lord evokes the gentility of the steamship era, and pulls readers into the unfolding disaster.

In recent years, Maryland has seen many local banks acquired by out-of-state rivals. A little over a decade ago, the state had 139 banks based here, with 20 of them separately chartered affiliates of Mercantile-Safe Deposit & Trust Co., according to the Maryland Bankers Association. Here are a few of Baltimore's most prominent banks that have been bought up over past three decades. Provident Bank (1886-2008) Provident, which had been based in Baltimore since the late 1800s, had long prided itself on its independence.

— They stood in the sunshine, silent and praying for the souls of the 1,500 who lost their lives. The dozens gathered at St. Peter the Apostle Roman Catholic Church bowed their heads and tried to imagine those last desperate moments in the North Atlantic Ocean, 100 years ago. "Save me, God, for the waters have reached my neck," Kara Van Fleet, 15, read from the Psalms to the crowd assembled at the bottom of the church's sloped cemetery....

Despite running a full-court press for the entire second half and pushing to erase a 14-point halftime deficit, the New Town girls basketball team never ran out of energy against Southern Garrett. "We've been running all season," said New Town senior Tiana Davis, who led New Town with eight rebounds. But the Titans (21-6) did run out of time. Southern (22-4) defeated New Town, 52-47, for the Class 1A state championship Saturday evening at Towson's SECU Arena. The Rams jumped out to a 6-0 lead, and New Town did not score until junior Destiney Taylor-Betts' (10 points, five steals)

RAISE YOUR hands: How many of you left the theater after seeing "Titanic" saying something like this: "Wow. Suppose that had happened today. Can you imagine all the lawsuits?"By the time we reached our car, my friends and I were planning the class action and counting the punitive damages. "I guess if they'd had our legal system then," said one, "it would have been the end of trans-Atlantic travel."OK, so I hang out with too many lawyers. You were involved with the romance of Rose and Jack and didn't stop to think about the supposed "litigation explosion" of our own era.But guess what?

There is a single shot, just seconds long, in James Cameron's newly re-released movie, "Titanic," that says it all with poignant eloquence. Up to this point in the narrative, the director has emphasized the great ship's size and grandeur. She sweeps over the waves like a building that has somehow learned to fly, and you cannot help but gape at the mammoth scale of her, the largest moving object on Earth at more than 100 feet tall and four city blocks long. Then comes her collision with that iceberg she saw too late.

THE front page of April 15, 1912, is considered the most embarrassing moment in the 85 years of the former Baltimore Evening Sun.It read: "All Titanic Passengers Are Safe; Transferred in Lifeboats at Sea."The banner headline is always good for a chuckle from folks who have the benefit of eight decades of hindsight. That's especially true now that everyone older than the age of 8 has seen the movie "Titanic," which will receive lots of attention at tonight's Academy Awards.The movie has introduced many Americans, most notably teen-agers, to that disaster, and to their ancestors of that era.Celluloid historyThe history lesson need not end there.

Jason Bulkeley sees himself as the James Cameron of the restaurant business -- at least on April 14, when he'll be re-creating the last dinner served on the Titanic. His restaurant, the Orchard Market and Cafe (8815 Orchard Tree Lane, Towson), will abandon its Persian cuisine for one night and duplicate selections from the original 11-course first-class menu of the ship. (The kitchen will limit itself to a mere eight courses of French-Edwardian cuisine.) April 14, of course, is the anniversary of the Titanic's sinking.

When I was watching television while completing an online fantasy baseball draft last night, I had a revelation -- the Orioles are going to finish with a winning record in 2012. Huh? I know they're picked to finish at the bottom of the American League East again in 2012 by pretty much everyone that knows what the AL East is. And I know they still aren't sure who is pitching a week from Friday on Opening Day at Camden Yards, let alone the other 161 games this season. And I know there are still more questions than answers for a lineup that lacks the prototypical leadoff hitter as long as Brian Roberts is unable to play.

New Town's high-scoring guard, Sydney Hines, didn't get to play as much as she might have expected in the state semifinals on Wednesday, but that was OK with her. "We got the win, our teammates got involved and we're on to the next level," Hines said after her Titans easily handled an overmatched National Academy Foundation team, 73-9, in the state Class 1A semifinals at Towson University's SECU Arena. The Titans (21-5) rolled to a 23-0 lead over the Eagles, a Baltimore City team making its first appearance in the state tournament.

Texans 30, Titans 24 Strategy: Led by All-Pro defensive end J.J. Watt, the Texans have one of the most aggressive and physical 3-4 defensive fronts in the NFL. Defensive coordinator Wade Phillips isn't afraid to blitz and he sent pass rushers in waves at Tennessee Titans quarterback Jake Locker. That style of play puts pressure on his defensive backs to play tight man coverage, something that can be exploited. Offensively, they're the same old Texans, relying on Arian Foster and Ben Tate to carry the ball on zone-blocking runs and rolling out quarterback Matt Schaub on play-action bootlegs.

It took former Ravens safety Bernard Pollard a little over a week to find a new home. Pollard has agreed to sign a one-year deal with the Tennessee Titans, putting him back in the AFC South, his agent, Tory Dandy confirmed on Twitter this morning. Pollard, 28, played two seasons with the Houston Texans before signing with the Ravens. In a somewhat surprising move, the Ravens released Pollard on March 13 despite the fact that he was their leading tackler this past season.

Australian mining magnate (apparently, a thing) Clive Palmer has unveiled the blueprints of his replica of the doomed ship that killed Leonardo DiCaprio. What could go wrong? It's set to sail the Atlantic by 2016. Will there be costumes, you ask? Sure! Passengers, dress in your finest! Go downstairs and dance with the poor people if you'd like! As you can probably tell, the ship has garnered mixed reaction on Twitter. Here are some of our favorites: "They are building the Titanic II. Hopefully it works out better than the Death Star II. " - @DepressedDarth "I was so pissed when I saw Titanic II trending, but then I realized it's a remake of the boat and not the movie and then I felt better.
