"All In" is the title of the David Petraeus biography, and no book is more aptly titled. His caree is now in a shambles because he made a big, disasterous bet -- having an affair with co-author Paula Broadwell -- and it led to his resignation as CIA director. The affair also sullies the book by Broadwell and Washington Post editor Vernon Loeb, which was highly praised. The prurient may read it, for clues to the Petraeus/Broadwell relationship. But how can anyone else now believe it is an objective account of his personality and leadership?

I was close to 40 when I discovered how love really feels. The object of my affection was a French bulldog, sold to us as Oliver and rechristened Grisby. His color was officially designated "fawn piebald," which meant he had very pretty markings of light brown and white, about half of each. His fur was short and soft, and his large, expressive ears were light brown on the back, dark pink inside and could seem almost translucent in the sunlight. His mouth was wide and when he trotted along with his pink tongue hanging out, it formed a permanent smile.

David Petraeus betrayed his wife; that is between them. It does however show a lack of responsibility and judgment. The personal betrayal is compounded in the betrayal of his country by jollying in the CIA director's office with a woman, Angela Jolie, who not only is a publicity hound but who also has no business in that inner sanctum of national secrets. This makes private citizens wonder about the classified information that Patricia Broadwell has in hand; did it come from a man lacking judgment when faced with aggressive women?

Even as the Baltimore Police Department faces criticism over its handling of an officer caught on video punching a suspect, an outside audit of the Internal Affairs Division has raised questions about the thoroughness and fairness of the agency's misconduct investigations. A Baltimore lawyer who is a national expert on police discipline discovered "many flaws" within the Internal Affairs Division, including detectives who lack proper training, work under decades-old processes and are often pulled from their duties for other tasks.

Vernon Loeb, the Washington Post editor who worked with Paula Broadwell on the bio of David Petraeus, says he was blind-sided by the affair that ended Petraeus' stint as CIA director. "My wife says I'm the most clueless person in America," he begins in a first-person piece in the Post, describing his involvement in the book "All In. " Loeb says he got involved after a call from his agent about collaborating on a book about Petraeus' leadership. Loeb was a logical choice -- he had embedded with a division under the general's command in 2003, while covering the Pentagon.

Three different quarterbacks earned starts for the Morgan State football team in 2013, and all three -- senior Seth Higgins, redshirt senior Robert Council and redshirt junior Moses Skillon -- are back. Add redshirt freshman Chris Clack Jr., and the quarterback position is one of the most crowded positions for the program. It might also be the most difficult to decipher, but new head coach Lee Hull said he appreciates the quarterbacks' battle to open the season against Eastern Michigan on Aug. 30. “I think it's been good,” Hull, the former wide receivers coach at Maryland, said after Morgan State's practice at Hughes Stadium Wednesday.

Meanwhile, Maryland saw about $50 million a year in economic value from the ship. After hearing the Pride would be heading to Florida to cut costs, state officials immediately began trying to salvage the relationship.
