Acting Like A Child With A Child on the Way

0 Written by: | Friday, Apr 18, 2014 12:00pm

Dear Whit,

This whole situation is driving me crazy! My husband and I have two kids and are expecting a third —all of the same gender. When we found out about the gender of the new one, my husband was disappointed and stopped being excited about the pregnancy. Before that he was always making sure that I was comfortable and well rested, etc. But now he doesn’t seem to care about me, or the expected baby. He even told me that he feels “less of a man” now that we know what the gender is going to be. Can you believe that? I don’t have the slightest idea about how to deal with this because it is so completely ridiculous! What do you think I should do?

Can’t Deal

Dear Can’t:

You can tell him that feeling like “less of a man” makes sense given how he’s acting. Tell him he looks and sounds like the little birthday boy at his party who pouts when he discovers that he didn’t get the present he wanted. Read More →

porch pounders ad-2

Ever heard of a Porch Pounder? It’s the label wine industry people give to wines that go down easily, won’t break the bank and always deliver. It’s a crowd pleaser. Open one at the end of a long week, and you’re sure to start off the weekend in a good place. We’ve partnered with Bin 604 to bring to you the Porch Pounder of the Month and a few other wine suggestions. The staff at Bin 604 regularly tastes over one-hundred wines every week, so you can count on the selections to be ones you’ll want to pound on the porch…or anywhere at all!

The week, the staff at Bin 604 suggests affordable Easter wines to complement your holiday meal.  Pairing wines with traditional Easter foods can be tricky: which wine goes as well with Peeps as it does with deviled eggs? But the wine lovers at Bin 604 have found just the right Easter wines, versatile enough to go with everything on your plate!

catch of the day fish (2)It seems like only yesterday we were cheering the Ravens on to a Super Bowl victory and parading in the streets for weeks afterward, celebrating our city’s triumph. Since then, another football season has come and gone, but our pride and love for the Ravens is, of course, always there. This weekend, you can get a little football fix at the Spring Football Festival being held at McHenry Row this Saturday afternoon. Read More →

The Onion Uses Buck Showalter to Take Another Shot at Baltimore Crime

Buck Showalter

After the Ravens’ 2013 Super Bowl victory, The Onion took a jab at Baltimore’s reputation for violent crime with an article titled “Baltimore Looking for Safer City to Host Super Bowl Parade.” A month later, they recycled the joke with an article that estimated the victory parade death toll at “only 20,000.” (I wonder whether the writer knew that the parade was in fact marred by the stabbing death of a 15-year-old.)

Now America’s finest news source has given the joke another try with Baltimore’s other major-league franchise in an article Wednesday titled “Buck Showalter Terrified to Walk Alone to Mound at Night.” For what it’s worth, it’s easily the funniest of the three. In it, a fictionalized Showalter reveals that during night games he is too scared to approach the pitcher’s mound without a catcher with him and always takes “a wide berth around Camden Yards’ perilous outfield, recounting how last fall he was robbed at knifepoint by Orioles right fielder Nick Markakis.” Read More →

Ben Carson Out-raises Hillary Clinton in 2014 So Far

0 Written by: | Friday, Apr 18, 2014 10:00am

Ben Carson

It takes money–a lot of money– to run for political office, and the candidate who raises the most money tends to come out on top. So it’s very interesting that Baltimore neurosurgeon Ben Carson ha raised $2.4 million toward his campaign for president in 2016, making him an early front-runner in the race–at least as far as money goes.
