THE MIGHTY Oz was at it again on Sunday. Marlins manager Ozzie Guillen reportedly threw more than a few f-bombs in the direction of Nationals rookie rightfielder Bryce Harper during the fourth inning of the Washington's 4-0 win.

And relying on cabinetmaking classes that he had taken in high school, he built a welcoming podium at the spot where visitors first set foot on the ship. Mr. Speer was "very much into the Navy," said Joe Holland, a friend of 40 years and a former neighbor who, like Mr. Speer, a fellow Navy veteran, had never served on the battleship.
