Navy Football Blends Sport And Spectacle
By Eli Saslow, Page AA04
   United States Naval Academy game days in Annapolis are packed with so much entertainment -- flybys by fighter jets, aerial tricks by Navy Seal parachutists, a crosstown march -- that football, marketed as the premier attraction, sometimes becomes a distraction.

Crab Is in Good Company on the Arundel Menu
Page AA50
    Crab. It's the culinary mainstay of Anne Arundel County. From G&M in Linthicum to Cantler's in Annapolis, from Carrol's Creek in Eastport to Topside in Galesville, crab is the unifying ingredient in many dishes. And why not? Chesapeake Bay blue crabs provide some of the best eating in the world. And where better to eat those crabs than at the source?
