Police Commissioner Anthony Batts may have the single toughest job in the United States. Each small victory for the police department is trumped by more outrageous acts of ugly violence. A city weeps and prays for the family of a slain three year old ( "Family and friends mourn 3-year-old Baltimore girl killed by gunfire," Aug. 8). Incredible, it is life (and death) as we know it in Baltimore. It seems as if we have become inured to the astonishing numbers of lives lost. Once again, our city has become a cesspool of murder, recklessness and a lack of mores or values that are instilled in most of us. The especially pathetic thing is that city residents are being defined by the few cowards who choose to make our streets so frighteningly dangerous.

Baltimore City Police said they arrested two men Saturday who allegedly attempted to rob teenagers at gunpoint and stole their dirt bikes. Police spokesman Det. Ruganzu Howard said the spouse of a police officer watched as the men held up the teens near the 2700 block Waterview Avenue. The teens ran away and swam across a drainage lake in the Westpoint neighborhood of south Baltimore to escape. Howard said police used a helicopter to help catch the men. Brandon Hall, 27, and Thomas Smothers, 24, were both arrested and charged with armed robbery.

Remember how President Barack Obama promised he would heal the planet and make the seas stop rising?  Well, it turns out the president does have a special, magical touch. It's just not with the environment. It's with babies.  The White House recently put out this video of a crying baby whose family had come to see the president. First Lady Michelle Obama couldn't comfort the child, but the second the president held the baby, the crying stopped.  Now, can that magical touch work with the American people a second time around?

For another, someone in Providence actually wants you. Tanya Haapanen, the events and marketing coordinator at the Whiskey Republic in Providence, contacted us.

Brendan Marrocco sometimes looks down at his arms and can't believe they really exist. Until six weeks ago, the 26-year-old didn't have arms. He lost both of his, as well as his legs, in the Iraq War when the armored vehicle he was driving ran over a bomb in 2009. He was the first soldier of the Iraq and Afghanistan wars to lose all four limbs in combat and survive. But Marrocco has arms again because of a rare double transplant performed by a team of surgeons at Johns Hopkins Hospital on Dec. 18. Marrocco wheeled himself into a media briefing Tuesday using his new limbs.

Bryn Mawr's 4-2 victory over Holton-Arms in last week's Maryland Scholastic Hockey League title game at The Gardens Icehouse in Laurel was a little more satisfying than other championships. The reason? Holton-Arms had beaten the Mawrtians in the championship game for four consecutive seasons. "I think that to finally win was a big relief to a lot of people," Bryn Mawr's Creaghan Peters said. "It was a huge confidence booster and proved they could do what they worked for all year."

I'm having a hard time understanding, "taking guns out of the hands of those who have a mental problem. " Anyone who would shoot someone has a mental problem, and if there wasn't any indication of any prior behavior, who's to know? Personally, I would abolish all guns except hunting rifles and shot guns. Are we still living in the days of cowboys and Indians that we need to protect our homes? Of all the people who have a gun in there home, are they really frightful of someone breaking in?

- The federal government says a man accused of keeping an arsenal in a New Jersey motel room had a map of the U.S. Army's Fort Drum base in upstate New York. The U.S. attorney's office in Newark on Tuesday charged 43-year-old Lloyd Woodson of Reston, Va., with a weapons offense. He was hit Monday with several state weapons charges after his arrest in Branchburg., N.J. Court papers do not say whether he was believed to be planning an attack on Fort Drum or anywhere else. Woodson served for a time in the Navy in the 1980s or 1990s, but it was not immediately clear whether he has any connection to the fort.

A Baltimore man pleaded guilty this week after investigators tied him to a series of armed robberies earlier this year in Northeast Baltimore. After one of the robberies, Thomas Mims, 53, was found in a car matching descriptions given by witnesses and led officers on a high speed chase, prosecutors said. Mims was ultimately taken into custody after he was trapped in a cul-de-sac by police amid the chase and was shot in the arm by an officer after speeding toward police who approached on foot.

To Jennifer Vick, being on the sidelines doesn't mean you are out of the game - the fashion game. Vick, a Glen Arm resident, spent years watching her sons, Porter, 13, and Mason, 15, play lacrosse. While at the games, she noticed more and more girls playing the sport. But they often showed up to practice and games wearing "boys' stuff. " "The fit was not good, and the clothes were not relevant," she said. Vick also saw a lack of lacrosse-style clothing geared toward sisters and mothers watching the games.

BOWIE -- As a free-agent outfielder playing in Venezuela last winter, Adam Loewen hoped to show enough to earn a chance in spring training. And then he realized that his best shot to get back to the major leagues might be what originally got him there: his prized left arm. Now with the Reading Fightin Phils, the Philadelphia Phillies' Double-A affiliate, Loewen came with his team to Double-A Bowie this week. "It's like I'm starting over every five years at something different," Loewen said Tuesday.

I am a Jewish American and a lifelong and committed Zionist who wholeheartedly agrees with Caroline Poplin's recent commentary ( "A costly victory for Israel," Aug. 7). However, it requires some minor corrections. First, most Middle Eastern observers agree that returning to the Israel's original pre-1967 borders cannot work. It leaves Israel with indefensible borders in the event of a future conflict and excludes some large adjacent, long-standing legal settlements. The solution is to return to the pre-1967 borders with mutually agreed adjustments.

President Bush, seeking to buy votes, has recently approved massive sales of two of America's most advanced combat aircraft to two global trouble spots.While the sales will grant a temporary reprieve to some worker-voters facing imminent pink slips, the dangerous consequences they unleash will last far longer than the jobs they save.The sales -- 150 F-16 fighters to Taiwan and 72 F-15 "Strike Eagle" fighter bombers to Saudi Arabia -- signal Mr. Bush's abandonment of his post-gulf war commitment to curb destabilizing arms sales to the Middle East.

Whatever the reason for Brenda McKenzie's decision to leave as head of the Baltimore Development Corporation after just two years, Mayor Stephanie Rawlings-Blake made a shrewd move by recruiting City Councilman William H. Cole IV to take her place. Ms. McKenzie never fully gelled with the downtown business community that has traditionally been the BDC's chief constituency, but Mr. Cole, who has represented the central business district for two terms on the council, has immediate credibility in that area.
