Our topic du jour: the latest stunning milestone in the march toward gay equality. No, the other stunning milestone. We will get around to what the Supreme Court did (more accurately, declined to do) in a moment. But first: Have you seen the new Cheerios commercial? It broke out online a few days ago, a spot starring these two gay French Canadian men and their adopted daughter, a brown-skinned (African-Canadian?) toddler named Raphaelle. In the three-minute clip, Andre and Jonathan talk about the love at first sight blind date that brought them together and how they thought they could never be dads because they are gay. All the while, Raphaelle is squirming, eating Cheerios, leaning from one father to the other and otherwise committing shameless acts of cuteness.

It's not enough for Accepted to make sloth and irresponsibility funny; the movie has to go and make them noble as well. And while I have no problem with slackers making me laugh, when they start preaching, that's when my ears close and my eyes roll. The movie also has the misfortune of counting too much on its central character, played by an overeager Justin Long. For a film that so clearly wants to be its generation's Animal House, the comparison is inescapable: Imagine if the earlier film - recently rated by the Bravo cable network as the funniest movie ever - had counted on Tim Matheson's Eric Stratton for laughs, rather than John Belushi's "Bluto" Blutarsky, and you'll see the problem.

I appreciate Ravens owner Steve Bisciotti's thorough and sincere explanation on behalf the Ravens with respect the treatment of Ray Rice ( "Steve Bisciotti writes that Ravens should have done more to investigate Ray Rice video," Sept. 10). The role of the league in both the investigation leading to the suspension ruling in July as well the reaction after the interior elevator video was released would typically fall outside an individual owner's explicit purview and as such the understated references with regard the NFL will have to speak for themselves.

"Josh" is an attorney in the federal government who finds out from one of those dreaded staff surveys that the lawyers working for him aren't feeling the love. They don't think their hard work is appreciated, but he always lets them know when they screw up. The people working under him don't much like his management style. It's no surprise that Josh gets defensive and then disdainful. "Grown-up lawyers shouldn't expect to be thanked for just doing excellent work," he said. "They get paid, don't they?"

Commentator Caroline Poplin claims that Israel will have to make concessions to Hamas to prevent a resumption of the rockets ( "A costly victory for Israel," Aug. 7). However, anyone knowledgeable about Hamas knows that won't work. Hamas is implacably dedicated to the annihilation of Israel and will continue its attacks despite temporary interruptions. The only way to "prevent resumption of the rockets" is to get rid of Hamas - or at least remove it from power in Gaza and replace it with a government that will live peacefully with Israel.

The Maryland Public Service Commission said the new meters will bring more predictability and better service to customers hailing cabs in Baltimore city and county, while providing better financial data for use in future rate reviews. The commission cited the lack of reliable data as a major reason for rejecting rate increases.
