Of the articles I have read about the Exxon-Mobil station leak of 2006, it seems like every other paragraph mentions the $1.5 billion awarded to the 160 families involved in the class action suit and the amount that some families will receive. Some will receive a lot more than others because they suffered more. But of the three articles I have read, not one of them mentions how much the lawyers stand to gain out of the settlement. I hope the parties involved opt for one-third to go for the lawyers.

When he was younger, Arman Farazdaghi played with Legos. "I designed things that didn't work. I thought, I'll design something that works," said Arman, a 12-year-old seventh-grader who created the software program that operated a robot for the robotics club at Ridgely Middle School.

Steve Lombardozzi may not end up as a fulltime infielder for the Orioles. It doesn't matter. And maybe Alex Gonzalez's bat has been dipped into the fountain of youth and he ends up hitting this season like he did in winter ball and this spring. It doesn't matter. Monday's trade that sent the 37-year-old Gonzalez to the Detroit Tigers for the 25-year-old Lombardozzi was an absolute gem for the Orioles. And it's exactly why Dan Duquette signs anyone and everyone over the winter, no matter how much it may frustrate fans wanting big moves or writers wanting a daily break from the “they signed whom?
