The public service video produced by the Maryland National Guard on sexual assault begins like others. There's footage of troops training in the field. A narrator warns of predators within the ranks. A succession of leaders discusses the impact of assaults on service members and their teams. Then Brig. Gen. Linda Singh comes on the screen. "Speaking from personal experience, and having been sexually molested as a teenager, I sought out what I thought was the right support structure," the commander of the Maryland Army National Guard says.

Diane Townes waited in line for 12 hours to get her door-buster deals — printers, a laptop and a 50-inch television — so imagine her chagrin when it looked like she wouldn't be able to squeeze it all into her car Friday morning. The Owings Mills nurse shivered in the cold at 5:30 a.m. outside the Towson Walmart, watching store workers try unsuccessfully to fit her $298 Emerson TV in the trunk and back seat. She finally folded down her back seats and shoved it through the trunk, capping a shopping spree that had started Thanksgiving afternoon.

In contrast to a report released last week by the Abell Foundation, CareFirst Blue- Cross BlueShield yesterday presented consultants' recommendations supporting its plans to convert to for-profit status and sell itself to another insurer. The report did not examine CareFirst's announced intention to sell itself to WellPoint Networks Inc. for $1.3 billion, although the deal fits with what the consultants recommended. The new report, from Accenture Ltd., says that with a conversion and sale, "CareFirst would benefit from a substantial increase in scale and capital access."

When the Booz Allen Classic returns to the Tournament Players Club at Avenel in 2006 after being played at nearby Congressional Country Club this year, it will go back to the same course it left last June - one still waiting renovation. PGA Tour commissioner Tim Finchem said renovation scheduled to start last fall at the Potomac course won't start, at the earliest, until after next year's event because of time required to obtain environmental building permits. "Most likely after [2006]

THE DISSONANCE was stunning -- and telling. While President Bush was professing outrage Tuesday over corporate America's excesses and appealing to CEOs' morality and patriotism, many of his Republican colleagues in the House were lining up behind a bill to bar U.S. firms from receiving some federal contracts if they have reincorporated offshore -- a growing problem that the president did not even bother to mention in his Wall Street sermon. The congressional effort to stem this outrageous tax dodge by some of the nation's most prominent companies is laudable.
