Three points need to be made about Monday's  decision by the Supreme Court not to decide whether the equal protection clause of the Constitution grants people of the same sex the right to marry. Point 1: While the court's liberal wing probably wanted to accept cases banning same-sex marriage in five states that have been overturned by three different federal appeals courts in recent months, the conservative majority, along with swing Justice Anthony Kennedy, apparently wished to see states resolve the issue.

April Witch, by Majgull Axelsson. Villard. 408 pages. $24.95. Most of us cannot name a single cultural product of Sweden other than sauna and massage, small meatballs and Ingmar Bergman. So it is a labor of love to cause to be translated a contemporary Swedish novel, a "monster best seller" there but unquestionably something of an oddity here, lacking the warm lure of the more fashionable exotic. And once having thought of Bergman, one might find it difficult to forget him, as there is nothing light or banal about April Witch, Majgull Axelsson's second prize-winning novel.

When the Ravens started talking about building a strong running game in August, there were images of the 1960 Green Bay Packers and the Miami Dolphins and Pittsburgh Steelers of the 1970s. New offensive coordinator Gary Kubiak had built strong running games while in Denver and Houston, so expectations were high in Baltimore. Then came the 62 pass attempts by the Ravens in a season-opening loss to Cincinnati. There went the running game. But then the Ravens rushed for 157, 160 and 127 yards in the next three games, and the tough running approach was back.

Former Ravens running back Jamal Lewis, in Baltimore to sign autographs at the National Sports Collectors Convention, said Friday that his arrest earlier this week in Atlanta for child abandonment, a misdemeanor, was caused by a hearing he did not attend. “It was not about an abandonment issue, it was not about a kid issue,” he said. “It was the fact that, honestly, I didn't show up for a hearing to defend myself and everything else. But, like I said in my statement, you know, I've never been a bad father.

A key to the subject of this intriguing biography is the word "abandonment," which crops up several times in different contexts in the book.Patrick McGilligan (author of "Cagney: The Actor as Auteur," among others) writes that even in the low-budget origins of what became an extraordinary career, actor Jack Nicholson excelled at an acting technique called "abandonment." It's the equivalent of a tantrum, which, Mr. McGilligan writes, requires "the pulling out of all the emotional stops to convey a deeper level."

CITY HOUSING Commissioner Daniel P. Henson III likes to point out that Baltimore's abandoned housing crisis doesn't stem from the hefty tax liens it placed on properties. But as a recent Sun series by John B. O'Donnell and Jim Haner pointed out, it certainly exacerbates the problem by making liens so onerous with interest charges that few, if any, can afford to pay that bill plus the tab to repair a ramshackle shell.Baltimore's 24 percent annual interest charge on overdue city tax liens is the highest in Maryland.

A listless west-side block of downtown Baltimore will undergo an energetic makeover if an idea generated by DIY-style theater troupes and local developer Winstead "Ted" Rouse comes to fruition. Their plan, submitted earlier this year when the Baltimore Development Corp. issued a request for proposals, envisions turning three abandoned buildings in the 400 block of N. Howard Street, between West Franklin and West Mulberry, into a hub of theater, dance and more. It could open as early as 2016.

When my four-year-old son was recently discharged after undergoing facial reconstructive surgery at Johns Hopkins Children's Center, many friends and family members asked how I was holding up, how I was handling the stress and lack of sleep and all that comes with spending a week in a hospital. Those who have been through the experience know that the last thing you're thinking about is yourself. Being at a children's hospital - especially one as world renowned as Hopkins - was one of the most humbling experiences that I will ever have.

William Smith writes that Robert L. Ehrlich Jr.'s column concerning the Republican Party being the champion of small business is a fantasy and sets forth his own storyline that he alleges to have a "ring of truth to it" ( "Ehrlich's small business rhetoric rings hollow," May 13). Normally, I would dismiss such cliché riddled rants for what they are worth. However, the truly disturbing part of his letter is that Mr. Smith unfortunately depicts the predominant thinking found in our colleges and universities, the national media, and the leadership of the Democratic Party.

And it hasn't been done properly. " Excuse me? Is this guy supporting Anthony Brown for governor in the June primary? Indeed, he is. I checked. The Brown campaign lists Miller as one of a zillion Democrats who have lined up like good muldoons to support the lieutenant governor.

I am extremely disappointed by President Obama's lack of engagement in Ukraine. It pains me that Russian President Vladimir Putin seems to be playing him for a toothless paper tiger ( "Obama plans to talk to Russia's Putin about Ukraine deal Friday - official," Feb. 21). When the Soviet Union collapsed in 1991, Ukraine had the world's third largest nuclear arsenal, larger than the those of the UK, France and China combined. The Unites States, Russia and the UK guaranteed Ukraine's sovereignty and territorial integrity in exchange for surrendering its nuclear arsenal.
