Neurosurgeon Dr. Ben Carson has joined The Washington Times as a weekly opinion columnist, about a week after retiring from his post at Johns Hopkins Hospital. In his first column, published Wednesday, Carson outlined much of the viewpoint that gained him attention in the political realm after speeches earlier this year — criticizing political correctness and defending his position against same-sex marriage. "For a long time, I thought that retirement would mean learning to play golf well, learning to play the organ and learning a variety of new languages," Carson wrote.

Any devotee of the sleuthing genre knows that two questions drive every investigation: money and motive? But both remain somewhat elusive in tonight's latest edition of the PBS investigative series "Frontline" (at 9 on Maryland Public Television)."The Resurrection of Reverend Moon" demonstrates pretty clearly that the Rev. Sun Myung Moon, jailed in the early 1980s on tax charges, has since assembled a politically influential range of organizations in the United States.The Unification Church he heads, "once labeled a cult, is now more accurately described as a conglomerate," asserts the show.

The NAACP board this week extended the contract of President Kweisi Mfume. Well, at least the organization did one thing right. The venerable but fast-sinking-in-esteem civil rights organization held its annual convention in New Orleans. It wasn't long before things went south, inspired by board Chairman Julian Bond, who still thinks he's in an organization called the Student Nonviolent Coordinating Committee. On Sunday, Bond launched into a tirade against the administration of President Bush.

From 1909 until 1939, marathons were run from Laurel to Washington or Baltimore. After the first few marathons, they not only became AAU-sanctioned, but the race was one of the qualifying marathons for the U.S. Olympic team. There was one constant in all those years: The starting line was in front of the Laurel Hotel on the corner of Main Street and Washington Pike (Route 1southbound). When the modern Olympic Games were started in 1896, the marathon was included. The following year, the Boston Marathon was inaugurated.
