Using computerized sleuthing, Comptroller William Donald Schaefer has identified scores of liquor retailers in Baltimore City and three counties that owe the state a combined $27 million in sales taxes, interest and penalties, with more collections expected as the program goes statewide in the months ahead. In what national observers say might be a first-of-its-kind approach, the comptroller is using computers to compare wholesale deliveries to liquor stores and bars with the taxes paid by the businesses.

Six years ago, the Baltimore Circuit Court judge who sentenced a college student to life in prison in a murder case that hinged on gunshot residue said he would set the man free if evidence was found showing he did not commit the crime. Tyrone Jones was back in court yesterday. Jones and a team of public defenders are arguing in a motion for a new trial that two particles of gunshot residue found on his left hand June 24, 1998, the evening of a fatal shooting in East Baltimore, could have come from the way the Baltimore Police Department collected the tiny scraps of evidence.

As I read The Sun's editorial, "One week and counting" (Aug. 19), I was disappointed with how disconnected it seemed with the conversations I've had with countless families and small business owners about a post-Labor Day start to the public school calendar. While the editorial mocked a serious policy discussion that would simultaneously help families, small businesses and the Maryland economy, a poll on The Sun's own website found that 88 percent of readers support a post-Labor Day start to the public school calendar.

Each year, Allstate Insurance Co. issues a report on the "best drivers" in the nation, and each year, Baltimore drivers fare poorly. The good news is that the company's 2013 ranking has Baltimore moving up to No. 193. The bad news is that they only looked at 194 cities. That's right, only nearby Washington, D.C. is regarded by the insurer as being home to worse drivers. And what did Allstate consider when making its rankings? It's how often accident claims were filed by drivers living in the nation's most populous cities.

In response to Dan Rodricks ' recent column on New York's "stop-and-frisk" policing policies, I have one suggestion: Move to North Korea or Iran. Once there, you can eagerly support their lack of constitutional rights ( "We want your guns, not your drugs," Aug. 31). Mr. Rodricks claims that "the Constitution sometimes gets in the way of sweeping police practices believed intuitively to be effective. Baltimore police will need to balance aggressive gun enforcement in the shadow of the New York ruling, should it survive appeals.

I am going to be honest, I did not think Ray Lewis was going to be nearly as good on TV as he was on ESPN's "Sunday NFL Countdown Sunday" today. Frankly, some of the stuff Lewis said as a player sometimes sounded, well, a little off the wall. Like his comments last week about the power outage in the Super Bowl possibly being intentional. And I wondered how his incredible visceral intensity as a player would translate to the screen in a medium that favors cool. But after three hours of watching Lewis and his new TV teammates, I am here to tell you he had an outstanding debut.
