Bradley Williams makes a good point about the problems with legalizing assisted suicide, one of them being that people assisting a suicide may have their own agenda ( "The perils of assisted suicide," Oct. 2). Mr. Williams gives as an example a recent Montana case in which a man is accused of encouraging a teenage girl to kill herself in order to prevent her from testifying against him in a rape trial. I am a doctor in Oregon, one of the few states in which physician-assisted suicide is legal.

At Virginia, Kyle Dixon was more of a playmaker than a scorer. After the Bayhawks drafted him in 2006, the midfielder altered his game, recording more goals than assists. In 2013, his eighth season in Major League Lacrosse, Dixon has gone back to his college roots. Although he isn't scoring as many goals, the Millersville native and 2002 Archbishop Spalding graduate has already set a professional career high in assists this season. "It's definitely been a more assist-heavy season for me," Dixon said.

Alexa Fraser's recent commentary promotes the idea of legalizing physician-assisted suicide ( "Political candidates should debate the right to die," Sept. 28). The term "physician-assisted suicide" means that a physician provides the means or information to enable a patient to perform a life-ending act, such as through a lethal prescription. The premise of Ms. Fraser's commentary is that legalization of physician-assisted suicide will eliminate other types of suicides, such as those resulting from self-inflicted gunshot wounds.

Loyola's leading point producer Austin Rodgers has a very unselfish philosophy. "I'm happy to just give assists," said Rodgers, a senior attackman. "I like throwing to other guys and letting them score. I don't like getting all the goals and all that. Nothing's wrong with getting goals, I just like watching everyone else celebrate." Despite his distaste for goals and celebration, Rodgers threw four in the net on top of three assists as the fifth-ranked Dons steamrolled top-ranked Severn, 15-4, in a Maryland Interscholastic Athletic Association A Conference game yesterday in Severna Park.

Domestic violence is an issue that has been on the minds of many people in recent days, prompted by the horrifying abuse committed by Ray Rice against his now-wife. His status as a professional football player, coupled with the fact that the attack was captured on video and has been seen by millions, has helped to shine a bright light on this often-neglected yet serious societal problem. Lesser known but not less tragic was the murder of Jessica Meredith Jacobsen, mother to two young boys, by her estranged husband exactly two years ago today in front of their Baltimore County home.
