There is a factual error in Thomas Schaller's column ("The problem is not Islam but orthodoxy," Aug. 24). He quotes Jesus as saying, "But as for these enemies of mine, who did not want me to reign over them, bring them here and slaughter them before me. " In fact, these words are spoken by a king in a parable that Jesus tells. It is truly unfortunate that the only voices on religion that seem to get air time these days are the Pharisaical right or the anti-religious. OK, maybe we're stuck with that.

Watching baseball on television is one of the great joys of my life. But I have to be honest. By the end of the year, I couldn't watch the Orioles any more on MASN. I was so mad about them playing without a sense of playoff urgency - and the MASN announcers refusing to call any of them out. I could not stand to hear manager Buck Showalter or his players stand there, loss after winnable loss, talking about how "resilient" they were and how they had to just keep "grinding" while the MASN talent nodded in dumb agreement.

This is an excerpt of remarks by Christiane Amanpour, chief international correspondent for CNN, to the Freedom Forum in New York on April 13. IN MY years of covering Bosnia, Croatia and Kosovo, the most terrible things were often first reported by journalists from eyewitness accounts. And then they were proven true: the death camps in Bosnia, the mass graves, for instance. Of course, none of the Albanian refugees on Serbian television are portrayed as fleeing the terror campaign; Serb officials insist they are only fleeing NATO bombing.

Maryland Public Television is set to air a polemical film about Lyme disease that is built on fear-provoking speculations and assertions while advancing a central message that has been discredited by experts in infectious diseases. Despite being apprised of the film's serious flaws, MPT has "Under Our Skin: A Health Care Nightmare" on its afternoon schedule for June 26. Other stations throughout the Public Broadcasting Service also have "Under Our Skin: on their schedules; some already aired it. The program was distributed free to stations by the National Educational Telecommunications Association.

A fter a desperately needed Olympic interlude, NBC gets back this week to the down-and-dirty business of trying to recover from the debacle of moving Jay Leno to prime time in September. Mercifully, the Vancouver Games, which end tonight, took the minds of many viewers off the NBC decision that sent a bloodied Leno back to 11:35 p.m. starting Monday, while Conan O'Brien was sent off to a very early $40 million retirement earlier this month. Of all the things that the beleaguered network must do the minute the Olympic flame is extinguished, nothing is more important than re-establishing itself as a viable viewing option at 10 p.m. weeknights, so that affiliates like Baltimore's WBAL-TV have at least a fighting chance to compete in late local news again.

Can former Republican Gov. Robert L. Ehrlich Jr., now running for his old job this year in a rematch against Democratic Gov. Martin O'Malley, continue to host his popular talk show on WBAL Radio without declaring his time on the air as an in-kind campaign contribution? That's the question Maryland Democrats are asking the state elections board to resolve. Mr. Ehrlich says he doesn't have to report the air time's value — which potentially could be worth tens of thousands of dollars — until he formally files as a candidate with the state elections board in July.

The sun is shining, grass is soft and new, scented trees are perfuming the air…and it's all giving a certain furry four-legged someone spring fever. It's time to get the pup out and about. With events to hit with the dog every day this weekend, it's kind of the unofficial kickoff to dog season, such as it is. On Sunday, it's one of Baltimore's biggest pet events of the year, the Maryland SPCA's March for the Animals. From 10 a.m. to 2 p.m. thousands of dogs and their people (and even a few brave kitties)

It was on Jan. 23, 2007, that Tyrone Powers walked into the offices of radio station WEAA on the campus of Morgan State University. The time was shortly before 6 p.m. Powers had two guests waiting to be interviewed for his show, The Powers Report. Powers never made it into the studio. Neither did his guests. According to Powers' version of events, Donald Lockett, then general manager of WEAA, told him the show wouldn't air that night. Powers alleged that Lockett told him and Leslie Parker Blyther, the executive producer of his show, that "I got an e-mail to suspend your show indefinitely, immediately."

GOV. ROBERT L. Ehrlich Jr. will forgo hours of free airtime on one of Baltimore's most popular radio stations rather than participate in a show with a new host. Since his election in 2002, Ehrlich has spent an hour every other week on Stateline with the Governor, moderated by WBAL radio personality Ron Smith. But after The Sun reported last month that Ehrlich hired Smith's wife, June, to a new $79,771-a-year public-relations job in the state Department of Juvenile Services, station management decided that Smith should no longer host the show.
