Going into last night's state Class 4A semifinal, No. 3 Dulaney and Mongomery County's Walt Whitman had almost identical season statistics except in one category -- blocks.The Vikings averaged twice as many blocks as the Lions. A quick look at their roster revealed why -- four 6-footers. The Lions' tallest player, Melaney Heagy, is 5-10.The difference in height proved to be the difference in the match as the Vikings took a 15-4, 15-1, 15-3 victory at Essex Community College. They advance to meet No. 1 Severna Park for the title Saturday at Catonsville Community College.

These are boom times for Walt Whitman, America's most famous poet.A century after his death, Whitman, the poet of democracy, the poet of the body and soul, commands a loyal and expansive following from his birthplace on New York's Long Island to the literary circles of China.His rough, rigorous, unrhymed verse, informal and impassioned, appeals to both genders, all ages and numerous nationalities."Whitman is the poet of liberty, of individual freedom," said Carol Muske-Dukes, a poet and creative writing professor at the University of Southern California.

Only a few people are showered with attention almost every day: athletes, actors, politicians, victims of crimes.Poets are rarely in that circle of bright light.Two events within the past week -- one a tragedy, the other a celebration of talent -- are reminders that poetry endures even in shadow, that poems can alter how people think.Allen Ginsberg, the best-known poet of his generation and a figure who helped define it, died Saturday at the age of 70. He was hipster, profane buddha, secular rabbi -- the keeper of the beat of the Beats.

NEW ORLEANS -- Alan Ginsberg, old courage teacher, is gone. I met Allen in 1966 when I was 19 years old, fresh out of Romania. I knocked on his door in the Lower East Side in New York and brashly presented my baby-dissident credentials to the President of Poetry.Far from being startled, the poet gave generously of his time and made me welcome to the language, the country and New York. We spoke French because my English was nonexistent, and he loaded me with books of poetry he thought I should read and study.
