In the purported analysis of the prosecutorial debate ("Prosecutor and challenger go head to head," Aug. 13), Tricia Bishop and Justin Fenton say of the lower than average conviction rate in Baltimore City that "The figures may say more about Baltimore jurors than prosecutors," and go on to cite a 2008 study funded by the Abell Foundation. That study was severely flawed, offering "conclusions" that were not supported by the data. The data simply compared conviction rates in different jurisdictions.

Jeff Zrebiec, reporter: The Tampa Bay Buccaneers stink -- let's get that out of the way first. But the Ravens still needed an offensive performance like this on the road. It was extremely beneficial to get Torrey Smith going, and also to incorporate a couple of more targets, like Michael Campanaro and Kamar Aiken, into the offense. Not to be outdone, the defense played well until it let down in the second half. They got a rare interception from a defensive back and a rare - at least lately - sack from Terrell Suggs.

Recently, Rep. Andy Harris sent a broadside e-mail to constituents under the subject line "President Obama Engages in Unnecessary Attack on U.S. Navy. " The message included the following statement by Mr. Harris: "When I was commissioned in the U.S. Navy in 1988 we had 565 ships - and today we are down to 287. As a retired naval officer, President Obama's denigration of the U.S. Navy by comparing warships to horses is offensive. " Does Mr. Harris really believe that President Obama was comparing warships to horses?

Baltimore Sun reporters, columnists and editors share their immediate reaction to Game 2 of the American League Championship Series between the Orioles and the Kansas City Royals. Eduardo A. Encina, reporter: The Orioles now have a tremendous mountain to climb in Kansas City down two games to none as the ALCS shifts to Kauffman Stadium. The Orioles hadn't lost consecutive home games since June 28-29. And if they were able to get anything out of a one-out, bases-loaded situation in the seventh inning, Game 2 might have turned out different.

Looking for a job? Try a nonprofit. A Johns Hopkins University analysis of employment in 21 states found that nonprofit employment grew 2.5 percent a year on average between the second quarters of 2007 and 2009, while the number of jobs at for-profit employers fell 3.3 percent a year. Maryland followed that trend, though annual employment growth among nonprofits in the state was more modest — 2.3 percent — and the drop in for-profit employment was a less severe 2.9 percent a year.

Here's the kind of Ravens analysis I didn't hear from the CBS broadcast team during the network's telecast of Baltimore's 43-13 loss Sunday. It came Sunday night on NBC from Rodney Harrison, one of that network's excellent analysts. Harrison: “Baltimore's defense is struggling and part of the responsibility of your offense is to take the pressure off your defense. You do that by running the football. Ray Rice is your best player, not Joe Flacco. Run the ball, take pressure off of them.” CBS should have been pounding this analysis home from the third quarter on during the game.

Baltimore Sun reporters, columnists and editors give their instant analysis of the Ravens' 20-13 loss to the Indianapolis Colts in Week 5 at Lucas Oil Stadium. Jeff Zrebiec, reporter: The frustrating part for the Ravens had to be that they did pretty much all they could have hoped to do defensively and yet they still lost. They forced turnovers and were tough in the red zone and held a team that was averaging 34 points per game to only 20. But you're not going to win on the road when you can't convert on third down, when you turn the ball over and when your quarterback is consistently under siege.

Encina, reporter: The Orioles made it exciting to the end. They're now among the final four teams in baseball. On to the AL Championship Series. They beat the Tigers' three-headed Cy Young winner monster. And in Game 3, the Tigers' murderer's row of Torii Hunter, Miguel Cabrera, Victor Martinez and J.D. Martinez were 2-for-15.

With as much electricity as there appeared to be at Camden Yards on Thursday night, it would be hard not to have a high-energy telecast. Give cable channel TBS credit for that: It did a solid job of communicating the color, excitement and sheer joy in the stands for the American League Division Series opener as the Orioles beat the Detroit Tigers, 12-3. It might seem like an obvious choice, but coming out of commercials time and again with hand-held cameras in the face of fans in full orange-and-black regalia as they clapped, cheered and waved signs was definitely the way to go. I loved the field-level shots looking up into the stands.

Baltimore Sun reporters, columnists and editors share their initial thoughts on the Ravens' game against the Cleveland Browns in Week 3 of the 2014 NFL season. Jeff Zrebiec, reporter: This one came at a huge cost. Dennis Pitta may be done for the season with a hip injury. Terrell Suggs (groin) and Chris Canty (knee) both left the game early. Left tackle Eugene Monroe and cornerback Jimmy Smith both hobbled out of the locker room. It's fair to question what the Ravens will be able to get from cornerback Lardarius Webb after watching him play today.
