  • You're doing it wrong

    Having tried to sort out the categories of what people think of as rules of English usage, I thought I might make a start on the categories of what people call errors. Make no mistake: there are errors of usage. You may encounter people who say that a...
  • 'Homeland' returns steeped in D.C. dystopia

    'Homeland' returns steeped in D.C. dystopia
    It is hard to imagine any city in the nation being more reviled by Americans these days than Washington. The standoff last week among the White House, Senate and House of Representatives as the clock wound down on the country’s ability to pay its...
  • 'Homeland' Season 3 premiere recap, 'Tin Man is Down'

    'Homeland' Season 3 premiere recap, 'Tin Man is Down'
    Welcome back, Homelanders — let’s get caught up. First of all, our heroes Carrie and Saul (using aliases “Claire Danes” and “Mandy Patinkin,” respectively) have been flattered by some awfully breathless press coverage...
  • America can't guarantee that we won't engage in torture if we don't examine the past

    America can't guarantee that we won't engage in torture if we don't examine the past
    Yes, America. We tortured. And it was illegal, abhorrent and cruel. How can we ignore the facts? How can we fail to demand that the full and complete truth be provided to us? Earlier this year, those of us who follow such news of the intelligence...
  • 'Homeland' recap, 'Uh...Oh...Ah...'

    'Homeland' recap,  'Uh...Oh...Ah...'
    Everyone in episode two was acting like someone else, with Carrie imitating Jack Nicholson in "One Flew Over the Cuckoo’s Nest," Dana emulating Claire Danes in "Romeo + Juliet" and Saul impersonating his own murdered boss and Carrie’s nemesis,...
  • 87-year-old marathon participant sees no finish in sight

    87-year-old marathon participant sees no finish in sight
    Running a half-marathon is easy, Bob Gralley, 87, said: "I put one leg in front of the other." For 13.1 miles. That Gralley can do this at his age is remarkable. Yet on Saturday, there he'll be at the 13th Baltimore Running Festival, a silver-haired...
  • 'Scandal' recap, 'Mrs. Smith Goes to Washington'

    'Scandal' recap, 'Mrs. Smith Goes to Washington'
    I’m going to begin by saying that I was not sure about this episode from the preview. Hostage situation? It’s been done so many times that I feared that we may be getting the first predictable episode of “Scandal” ever....
  • 'Homeland' recap, 'The Yoga Play'

    'Homeland' recap, 'The Yoga Play'
    Spies, drones, runaways, yoga and kidnapping: episode five had it all. The episode was framed by Saul’s duck-hunting trip with the old boys network of DC. Invited by the White House chief of staff, Saul assumes that he was there to network with...
  • 'Homeland' recap, 'Still Positive'

    'Homeland' recap, 'Still Positive'
    Still no word from Brody, but Episode 6 provided answers to the central mystery that has been bothering me since the beginning of the current season: Why should we care about Javadi? The episode picks up precisely where we left off, and the opening...
  • Robert R. Bowie, lawyer, professor

    Robert R. Bowie, lawyer, professor
    Robert R. Bowie, a lawyer who established what is now the Weatherhead Center for International Affairs at Harvard University, died Nov. 2 of respiratory failure at Blakehurst Retirement Community in Towson. He was 104. The son of Clarence Keating Bowie,...
  • 'Homeland' recap: 'A Red Wheelbarrow'

    'Homeland' recap: 'A Red Wheelbarrow'
    I have several friends who have given up on "Homeland." It’s true that Season 2 was clunky, overwrought, and loose with many details. We made fun of its many moments of melodramatic dialogue, terrible acting and difficult-to-believe plot twists....
  • It's only a game, until it isn't

    I guess it will happen at some point. A kid in Baltimore will come across a faded black-and-white picture, or notice all those blue #19 jerseys, and he won't quite believe it: "We had a football team before the Ravens?" Maybe it's already happened,...
