After the murderous rampage of 22-year-old angry virgin Elliot Rodger in Santa Barbara Friday night, a guy took to Twitter to say that not all men shared his hatred of women and his determination to take vengeance for being ignored by them. Soon enough, other men were posting. Similar thoughts were collecting under #NotAllMen, using the hash-tag Twitter tool for aggregating conversations. Almost immediately, a young woman opened up her own comment stream under #YesAllWomen. No, not all men are guilty of misogyny, was her message.

Editor: In your editorial "Let Them Eat Cake", you, Mr. Kennedy, display for the public at large your curmudgeonly nature, your abject ignorance and your vitriolic bitterness. To compare teachers who have not receive their negotiated salaries for three years to Marie Antoinette is patently offensive and repugnant. You should be ashamed of yourself. Your proclivity to use your position as editor of the only local paper in Harford County to lambast the county workers and teachers is shameful.  Have you no ethics?

— Ravens running back Ray Rice rejected a plea offer Thursday that would spare him jail time on charges that he assaulted his then-fiancee, and instead asked the court to put him in a program under which he could eventually clear his record. With his status in the NFL still undetermined, Rice made his first court appearance since being charged by an Atlantic County grand jury with one count of third-degree aggravated assault. He is accused of knocking Janay Palmer unconscious during an altercation in the Revel Casino in February, an incident that authorities say was caught on video by a security camera.

In "Understanding Arab anger" (Sept. 19), Shibley Telhami, the Anwar Sadat professor for peace and development at the University of Maryland, claims that "the deepest sources of anger against America … pertain to the presence of U.S. forces in the Middle East and to U.S. policy toward the Palestinian-Israeli conflict. " This obscures how a marginal video - or Danish cartoons, a Salman Rushdie novel, or threatened Koran-burning by the pastor of a minuscule congregation - ignite violence throughout the Muslim world.

The recent revelation of Charles H. Stanley's years of service (1862-65) in the Confederate Army - and his presumed support of the institution of slavery - cannot be overlooked in the selection of a name for the new Laurel library. The fact that the site adjoins Emancipation Park, a focus of activities involving the African-American residents of the Grove, greater Laurel and Prince George's County, is both ironic and significant. The park is the site of the annual celebration of Emancipation Day, which marked the end of slavery in America.

Acting Natural Resource Secretary Joseph P. Gill's confirmation as the department's permanent chief appears back on track. A Senate committee Monday approved Gill's nomination after he apologized for remarks that angered watermen and vowed to work on closing what he called a "communication gap. " The Executive Nominations Committe voted to send Gill's nomination to the full Senate for confirmation. Sen. Richard F. Colburn, an Eastern Shore Republican, was the only dissenter, though three other Republicans on the 18-member panel abstained.

By the time I met Anthony Halbach, he had lived 50 years, and half of them hard. He'd spent a lot of time being angry and a lot of time drunk. He'd been homeless, estranged from kin, adrift in the world and truly lost. It was a life without smiles. There were long periods of loneliness and depression, and sometimes suicidal thoughts. Halbach told me all this recently because his life is very different now, and better. He hasn't had a taste of alcohol since January 2011. Last month, he managed to have a reunion with the elderly father he had not spoken to in 14 years.

With the partial federal government shutdown over and employees back at work, workforce consultant John Kolm says, supervisors' first responsibility shouldn't be assigning employees shovels to dig out from under a huge work backlog. Their first obligation, he says, should be to ask co-workers: "How are you doing? How are you feeling? How tough has the shutdown been on you?" Kolm, CEO of Potomac-based Team Results USA, has worked with agencies including the Defense Department, the Commerce Department, the Labor Department and the National Park Service to help improve team dynamics, leadership and morale.

The residents of the Memorial Apartments in Bolton Hill first started complaining about the intersection in front of the complex when a firetruck was broadsided four years ago. The intersection is dangerous, they told City Hall. Its wide median, poor signage and confusing design are causing frequent accidents to occur at the corner of McMechen Street and Eutaw Place, where schoolchildren and many senior citizens cross the street. The collisions continued — including eight in the past 12 weeks.

One of the delights of summer is the HBO documentary series executive producer Sheila Nevins delivers. I have only seen the first two films this year, but I like them both. I love "Pussy Riot: A Punk Prayer," which launches the series at 9 tonight. It's a look inside the feminist Russian art collective, its "Punk Prayer" protest in a Moscow cathedral and the trial that followed. The film reminded me as nothing else has in the last 40 some years what it felt like to be 18 years old in 1968 and hear the siren call of a cultural revolution.

When I first heard about the rain tax ("Anger grows over stormwater fees," April 16), I laughed. Not because of the increase in living costs, or the fact that were being taxed on an uncontrollable environmental factor, it's the fact that Gov. Martin O'Malley got away with doing it. This bill has allowed legislators to cross into a new territory of taxes which makes me wonder if summer will have a tax next year due to the increased temperature causing...

Chris Hasbrouck is not happy that St. Mary's dropped its regular-season finale to Capital Athletic Conference rival York last Saturday, and the coach wants to see his players show a little emotion when they meet Wesley in the first round of the conference tournament this Wednesday at Seahawk Stadium in St. Mary's City. “We need to go in there with a little bit of a chip on our shoulder,” Hasbrouck said Tuesday morning. “They knew that for a lot of reasons, we let a great opportunity slip by. I think we play better when we feel like there's more at stake.
