I have a feeling "Mad Men" is not going to end so happily for some of its fans. I say that after watching Sunday night's opener of the final season and hearing creator Matthew Weiner talk about where the series is going in its last 14 episodes. Before the final credits tonight, viewers will see one of the two characters who matters most, Don Draper (Jon Hamm), near spiritual paralysis, and the other, Peggy Olson (Elisabeth Moss), brought to her knees in emotional pain. You'll hear Don saying things like, "She knows I'm a terrible husband … I really thought I could do it this time … I keep wondering, 'Have I broken the vessel?

I'm not sure whether the weather makes me want to drink in celebration of the new season or in escape from the old. Either way: It. Is. Spring, y'all. Ah, it's the return of outdoor seating, of live music, a nice breeze off the water, and light, airy sips of cooling cocktails. The only problem is that everyone's got the same plan. Take this past weekend, for example: People were practically falling out of the windows or off bar balconies soaking in every ounce of summer sunshine and beverages that they could.

A Naval Academy midshipman once accused of sexual assault testified for the first time in open court Tuesday, telling a military judge that when he got into a car with a female classmate outside a 2012 off-campus party, he didn't think she was too drunk to know what she was doing. Midshipman Eric Graham said the alleged victim might have smelled of alcohol, but was talking and moving around on the night of a party that resulted in accusations of sexual assault against Graham and two others.

David Roberts was finishing up a customer's haircut Saturday at the Cavallaro & Co. salon on the second floor of The Mall in Columbia when he heard the first shot. He looked at another employee, wondering whether they should be concerned. "When we heard the second, that's when we were like, 'We need to go,'" said the 46-year-old stylist. Directly across from the salon, three people had been shot at Zumiez, a skate apparel and gear store. Roberts initially led employees and customers out the back of the salon.

Prosecutors said Friday they intend to explore the tempestuous relationship between the lead detective in the Phylicia Barnes case and his daughter when his trial on assault and burglary charges begins next week. The detective, Daniel T. Nicholson IV, is accused of barging into a Northeast Baltimore apartment, knocking a woman to the ground and punching another as he frantically searched for his daughter. His actions were previously scrutinized at the trial of Michael Maurice Johnson, who was indicted in Barnes' death, when defense attorneys sought to cast doubt on Nicholson's credibility by pointing to the parallels between Nicholson's own hunt and the search for Barnes.

A key witness in the case of Tyrone West — whose death in police custody has sparked a citywide debate — told investigators that West fought with officers, but that they continued to hit him after he gave up, according to documents released this week. "He was saying, 'You got me, you got me, stop hitting me,'" Corinthea Servance told detectives. "Natural instinct, you're going to ward them off. … I was screaming at him, just lay down. Whatever they're telling you to do, take the pain.

" In closing arguments this month, Assistant State's Attorney Theresa M. Shaffer asked the jury to carefully consider the words of a witness who testified that the victim of a West Baltimore killing might have been armed. "He don't want to be involved," she said.
