Ten Things to Watch Now That Those Volvo Race Boats Are Out Of Sight

10. The St. John’s College croquet team, to see if members revert to their drunken revelries now that they have soberly demolished the Mids in their annual croquet contest.

9. Baltimore Mayor Martin O’Malley, to learn if he will roll over and say okay to the acclamation of Lt. Gov. Kathleen Kennedy Townsend as the Democratic Party’s nominee for governor.

8. Lame-duck Gov. Parris Glendening: Will he find a job or draw unemployment?

7. Maryland education officials, to learn whether they will replace the discredited MSPAP tests with something at least named with a respectable acronym.

6. The new statue in Annapolis of the late Comptroller Louis Goldstein, to see if it becomes so dismayed at Maryland’s handling of the tax cut and other bone-headed financial dealings that it comes back to life.

5. Anne Arundel County Executive Janet Owens, to discover if she’s sporting enough to show up at would-be challenger Phillip Bissett’s Executive Grand Slam Golf Tournament at Renditions in Davidsonville on May 13 — like Republican Bissett crashed the Democrats’ Jefferson-Jackson Day shindig last month.

4. Government House, where the new Mrs. G now reigns, to see when Frances Glendening’s portrait is added to the portrait gallery of First Ladies that the former First Lady brought out of storage to adorn the grand staircase.

3. Baltimore Gas & Electric officials, to find out whether they will stock up on those potassium iodide pills being distributed around Calvert Cliffs Nuclear Power Plant in Southern Maryland to protect people in the event of a serious nuclear accident.

2. Rep. Robert Ehrlich Jr., to see if the sure-thing Republican nominee for governor will give Marylanders any reason in the coming months not to remain a one-party state.

1. Diapers. Will our environmentalist ex-gov choose cloth or throwaway?
