    ROCKVILLE, Md. - There are major flaws with the way the concrete was poured in the $101 million Transit Center in the heart of downtown Silver Spring. During a news conference Monday, Montgomery County Council President Roger Berliner outlined the issues, calling the situation a "serious problem." He also hinted at the possibility of legal action against the contractor. "Specifications for the project called for there to be 10 inches of concrete. The analysis that has been done has shown that for significant portions of the second floor and the third floor, there's only eight and a half inches," Berliner...

    A sports memorabilia collector who accused O.J. Simpson of armed robbery said Saturday that he was "on O.J.'s side" and wants the case dropped. "I want this thing to go away. I have health problems," said Alfred Beardsley, the collector who told police on Thursday that Simpson and several other men stormed a Las Vegas hotel room and stole memorabilia at gunpoint. Beardsley, of Burbank, Calif., told The Associated Press he is not interested in pursuing the case. "I have no desire to fly back and forth to Las Vegas to testify," he said. "How are they going to have...

    Satin Dolls, the Lodi go-go bar featured on the “The Sopranos” as the Bada Bing club, is auctioning items on eBay for fans of the popular HBO drama about a suburban New Jersey Mafia family. The sale will make way for the club’s renovation. LODI – Bada Bing, the fictional strip club on the HBO television Mafia drama "The Sopranos" that brought fame to Satin Dolls go-go bar, is approaching its own ending. But unlike the TV show's abrupt blackout finale, which left many television viewers cathartically stifled in June, the Bing is fading away piece by piece, courtesy...

    The Soprano-fication of Gaza By Michael Rosen : 15 Jun 2007 As of this writing, Hamas forces have overtaken the majority of the Gaza Strip, including several strongholds once controlled by Fatah, Hamas's bitter rival. Internecine Palestinian fighting has claimed hundreds of lives and displaced thousands of civilians. The government has been dissolved. The UN is considering sending peacekeeping troops to stanch the bloodletting. Some observers have presented the struggle as an ideological war between Hamas's Islamism and Fatah's secular nationalism. But a more appropriate analogy is to the gangland mob drama The Sopranos, which concluded its eight-year run earlier...

    It's never over till it's over" goes the familiar refrain. This time, though, it's truly over for The Sopranos. The quintessentially American family epic raises the curtain on the first of its nine final episodes tonight. The final aria will be sung June 10. The final scene was filmed in a wholesome family ice cream parlour, in Bloomfield, N.J. and includes James Gandolfini's gangster don and family man Tony Soprano, Edie Falco's pragmatic -- and legit -- mob moll Carmela Soprano and Tony Sirico's immaculately coiffed capo Peter Paul Gualtieri, a.k.a. Paulie Walnuts, a movie buff and debt collector given...

    ATLANTIC CITY, N.J. -- Make us a slogan we can't refuse, the state of New Jersey said. We got your slogan right here, the people replied. A push to come up with a new slogan for the Garden State has become an excuse to crack New Jersey jokes. Among the not-so-serious entries: "New Jersey: You Got a Problem With That?" "NJ: How You Doin'?!" And "Most of Our Elected Officials Have Not Been Indicted." The search yielded nearly 6,200 possibilities, many of them attempts to sum up the land of Bruce Springsteen, "The Sopranos" and smelly interstates in one pithy...

  • Emotion runs high on HBO's 'Sopranos' (Season finale in 2 weeks)

    Although "The Sopranos," which has only two episodes remaining, has always been a series with a split personality, mob violence on the one hand, and television's best use of subtlety on the other, it's clear that people who watch "The Sopranos" for the gunplay and physical mayhem are missing all the best parts. With only two hours left, "The Sopranos," which airs at 8 p.m. Sundays on HBO, is wrapping up a brilliant year, its sense of humor as out there as ever and its sense of the small emotional moment as sharp as any previous season. Oh, and yes,...
