Worked into a lather by outgoing Afghan President Hamid Karzai's lack of gratitude to the United States, HBO's comically blustering John Oliver came up with the perfect revenge over the weekend. He read aloud negative Internet reviews of The Helmand, the Baltimore restaurant run by Karzai's brother, Qayum. The contretemps started when Hamid Karzai, in a farewell speech delivered last week, thanked many nations for helping Afghanistan and its people, but pointedly left out the United States or any mention of the 2,000 American casualties incurred during years of fighting in the region.

A 32-year-old man convicted of trying to kill a police officer's husband had to be restrained by six officers during a hearing Monday sentencing him to life in prison plus 20 years, the Baltimore state's attorney's office said Thursday. Fernando Horton of the 400 block of Random Road shouted and struggled throughout the sentencing as victims spoke. A jury convicted him in January of attempted murder for shooting Asa Thomas, who's married to a Baltimore officer. Thomas had been visiting a family friend when he was shot through his driver's-side window, according to prosecutors, who said they believe the shooting was a "case of mistaken identity."

A truism: Almost nobody looks good in his booking photo. That said, the 47th governor of Texas, one James Richard Perry, certainly gave it his best shot when he faced the camera at the Travis County Courthouse last week. The resultant image is ... not terrible. Perry is caught somewhere between a tight smile and an outright grimace, his mien taut with confidence and seriousness of purpose. Gazing on that photo, one cannot help but suspect that a transparently political indictment designed by his Democratic opponents to cripple this presumed presidential aspirant might actually help him instead.

Are Howard County's speed limits too low or too high? That's one question some county officials hoped to answer when they reviewed a report of speed camera data from their vendor, Xerox State & Local Solutions. Traffic engineers have attempted for decades to set reasonable speed limits by analyzing traffic flow, setting the limit at the 85th percentile speed of vehicles on the road - meaning 15 percent of drivers travel faster than the limit. The thinking goes that drivers set a natural limit based on perceived risk.
