Abraham Dash, a retired Air Force lieutenant colonel and federal attorney who taught at the University of Maryland school of law from 1970 until his death, died Jan. 12 of a heart attack at his home in Bowie. He was 86. News of his death prompted an outpouring from former students and colleagues, who posted online dozens of tributes to his teaching, counsel and courtly spirit. "There's little if anything left unsaid about Abe. And yet anyone who knew him would want to be a part of these acts of remembrance," wrote a law school colleague, Gordon Young.

The greatest words any American ever said were spoken by a gaunt, war-haunted man in a tiny Pennsylvania college town 150 years ago Tuesday. The celebrated orator Edward Everett had spoken first, a gusty address that began with a nod toward "this serene sky, overlooking these broad fields now reposing from the labors of the waning year," and wheezed to a close two hours later with a reference to "the glorious annals of our common country....

I am surprised at Stuart Jay Robinson's letter about an NFL game being scheduled on a holiday (" The NFL displays religious insensitivity," Sept. 7). Mr. Robinson asks, "How can we be expected to teach our children that heritage, culture, family history and faith take priority over money?" How about discussing with your children what God asked Abraham to do - sacrifice his son. If Abraham was willing to do that for God, surely your children can be asked to give up one football game in order to celebrate Rosh Hashanah.
Like Passover and Easter, it is a cornerstone religious holiday and a movable feast based on the phases of the moon. Like Passover and Easter, the people who celebrate it identify themselves as the spiritual children of Abraham. The religious observance is Ramadan, which this year began on July 8 and concludes on the evening of Aug. 7. The month-long observance is comparable in length to the 40 days of fasting and penance Christians observe during Lent, but Ramadan, despite the abstinence from food and water observed during the day, is a joyous time for the faithful.

This week's featured adaptation is "Abraham Lincoln: Vampire Hunter" and the movie reviews are decidedly mixed. The film fits into the classic-cum-monster genre popularized by Seth Grahame-Smith and others, and shows a new side of Honest Abe, wailing away at Southern vampires with his trusty axe. ( The Baltimore Sun has a gallery of other famous vampire hunters .) Here are some exceprts from movie reviews: Los Angeles Times: "Vampire Hunter's" dramatic intentions are way ahead of its ability to execute them, so even capable actors such as Dominic Cooper, Anthony Mackie, Mary Elizabeth Winstead and Rufus Sewell don't make much of an impression.
