This could start something. Let's hope not. A Towson University student, Twitter handle @michonjanieceIV, sent out a tweet Wednesday night politely explaining to her professor that she would not be attending class the next day, in honor of Beyonce's birthday. "On September 4, 1981," the tweet reads in part, "The Lord blessed us all with the Goddess that is Queen Beyonce Knowles-Carter's birthday. Out of respect, I will not be attending class today. " @michonjanieceIV later sent out a second tweet, swearing that she'd meant to save her earlier effort as a draft, but sent it out by mistake.

A Baltimore architecture firm founded in 1977 by two Park School graduates and a friend has nearly doubled in size in the last two years, making its most ambitious bid for greater reach last month when it announced the expansion of its footprint to Colorado. In two years, Hord Coplan Macht has opened an office in Alexandria, Va., wooed top talent to its ranks, and worked to merge with smaller Denver-based SlaterPaull. The growth has brought employee count at the firm — which worked on Fells Point's Union Wharf apartments, Towson University's new SECU Arena, Morgan State University's Center for the Built Environment and Infrastructure Studies and the West Shore Park, among other projects — to 180, up from about 100 just two years ago. "We didn't sit down and say, 'Let's open up an office in the Rocky Mountain region someday, but we did make a strategic decision that being 100 and some people in one region … was — not risky, but rather restrictive to us," said CEO Lee Coplan, 63, one of the firm's three founders.

Earl Weaver once said that he had given a player more chances than his first wife. The same can be said for my relationship with The Sun. I can go over a long list of issues that have taken a once proud newspaper to lowly depths and will be happy to go over them if anyone at the paper cares. The truth is that I can no longer buy your newspaper when a Baltimore Orioles home night game is considered a "late game" and you have no information or box score on the game in the next day's paper.

If the first political ad for the general election is any indication, the battle for the governor's mansion may take a negative tone, some political observers say. Democrat Anthony G. Brown released a 30-second TV spot Friday that takes a swipe at his opponent's economic policies, saying Republican Larry Hogan would "take Maryland families backwards" if elected governor. Brown has put at least $23,000 toward airing the ad in the Baltimore market this weekend, according to reports filed with regulatory agencies.
