    The Pirates and the Baltimore Orioles played six World Series games in broad daylight that fall, though daylight in the World Series was later deemed unconstitutional, at least effectively. The '71 Pirates were loud progressives in that area as a team could be in that era. The whites accepted the blacks, who accepted the Latins, who accepted the whites, all of which you knew because they all teased the snot out of each other. Ellis called Robertson Archie Bunker.

    Terrorism: Adam Gadahn grew up in la-la land, knowing he could be anything he wanted. Of all he might've chosen from his banquet of opportunity, he picked al-Qaida. Now he's charged with treason. It's high time. Like John Walker Lindh of hot-tubbing Marin County, Calif., Gadahn grew up in sybaritic Orange and Riverside counties, a garden setting with vast opportunities most people in the world can only dream of. His self-absorbed hippie parents reared him permissively and now have no clue what went wrong. Amid fast-food joints, CDs, flush toilets and lots of pricey toys, Gadahn, a one-time death-metal rock...

    Sunday, April 21, 1861 The rumor that Federal militia troops would again march through Baltimore, was once more the talk of the town. 3,400 Federal militiamen had just arrived in Cockeysville (17 miles north of Baltimore) via rail from Philadelphia. They were given ammunition and were now waiting for a couple of Regular US Army regiments to accompany them through the city. Almost immediately, as church bells rang out the news, 4,000 men from every class joined the Baltimore militia. Before dismissing his congregation, a Universalist minister urged his flock to “beat your ploughshares into swords!” The city’s new militiamen...

    Matthew VanDyke didn't go into Libya to be in the middle of a war. The 31-year-old freelance journalist from Baltimore thought Moammar Gadhafi would be ousted from power by the time he arrived in early March. He would report on the changes sweeping the country and help friends he had met on previous visits build a new country. But VanDyke hasn't been heard from since mid-March, when he called his mother and girlfriend on a cellphone with a scratchy connection while on a truck headed from the rebel stronghold of Benghazi to the town of Brega.

Berndt, who was an attorney for the archdiocese, was discussing some difficult personnel matters with the cardinal as the two strolled by the Basilica of the National Shrine of the Assumption of...
