Its incredible that with all of the articles on HIV and AIDS, the fact that the FDA has finally approved of a 15-minute over-the-counter test for HIV has barely been mentioned ("Rapid at-home HIV test gains federal approval," July 4). You talk about unprotected sex, you talk about abstinence, you talk about condoms, etc., but here we have a method to "privately and immediately " determine whether your partner is HIV positive. One would think this would be a strong deterrent for unprotected sex, but it seems like it's a taboo subject.

Pernell McPhee has never operated in the spotlight on the Ravens defense, but the fourth-year outside linebacker has carved out an effective place in the rotation by both feeding on those who hog the attention, and at times, taking it away from them. With the Ravens thin on the defensive line and with stars Terrell Suggs and Elvis Dumervil no longer every-down rushers, McPhee has seen time at both outside linebacker positions, defensive end, and nose tackle. He's not being shoehorned into the defense out of necessity, though.

With at least two cable television shows — VH1's "The OCD Project" and A&E's "Obsessed" — featuring people struggling with obsessive-compulsive disorder, awareness may be on the rise. And Dr. Charles Mansueto hopes to give attention to the disorder on a more local, grassroots level. Mansueto, of the Behavior Therapy Center in Silver Spring, has been treating those with obsessive-compulsive disorder for more than 25 years, and he says that the illness can be effectively managed.

The Doberman sits on the edge of a bed, oblivious of the remarkable view from the floor-to-ceiling window. Modern high-rises peep out from a dense forest dotted with palm trees and shrouded in mist. Artist Jereme Scott says his painting was inspired by a 1957 photograph in National Geographic. At 66 inches by 50 inches, “The Watcher of Suite Singapore” is the largest item on display at his store, Cotton Duck Art & Apparel, in Historic Ellicott City. The shop, which opened in March, also sells T-shirts, hoodies and tank tops Scott designed, and jewelry made by designers from the Mid-Atlantic.  Scott, 28, studied fine arts at St. Joseph's University in Philadelphia and received his master's in studio arts from Howard University.

Really, it is amazing that the victory by Scott Walker was almost ignored by your paper ("The lesson of Wisconsin," June 7), but it is surely a victory for those who understand the choice we must make in November and get rid of the amateur in the White House. What would happen to The Sun today if there was a choice for readers here? It would fold if there was any choice in Maryland for the morning paper. If there was a choice, you may be sure my subscription would lapse today. Mike Sherman

And you wonder why the rest of the country calls Baltimore bush league, no pun intended. Here is young lady, daughter of a two-term president and granddaughter of a president, vice president, head of the CIA, Congressman and World War II Navy pilot hero who could be living in tall cotton in Texas (vs. crime city Baltimore) and teaching in an exclusive community. But she is here teaching inner-city kids in this cesspool city, and some people get bent out of shape because she got a little "extra" attention because she was robbed ("Jenna Bush burglary commands attention," June 24)

The Sun ran a story on page 3 about the theft of two bikes from a garage ("Two bikes are stolen from Jenna Bush Hager's garage," June 20). Someone broke into my store, causing damage, and stole over $5,000 worth of cigarettes. I spent $7,000 upgrading security! We didn't even make page 4! jcggordan

Amazing how the Gov. Chris Christie debacle carries major news headlines in the red press in this country but the Lt. Gov. Anthony Brown mess and Gov. Martin O'Malley's antics draw very little notice in comparison ("Christie vs. O'Malley on taking responsibility," Jan. 10). Perhaps The Sun can explain, but I think that most fair-minded people understand. F. Cordell - To respond to this letter, send an email to talkback@baltimoresun.com .

Kudos to Susan Reimer on her commentary (" Blue Ribbons for Grace March 26) highlighting the courage and compassion of Grace McComas' classmates in the face of administrative obstacles. Grace's friends, who are seeking to honor and celebrate the life of Grace during what should have been her graduation, have realized that cyberbullying is not a trivial issue. It is a serious, 21st century problem our young people are struggling with. Grace's classmates should be honored for bringing this issue to the fore while also celebrating Grace's life.

Hansen does not need to try to be noticed. The nearly all-white colt always stands out among his peers. Yet on Thursday morning, the Breeders' Cup juvenile champion did all he could to draw the attention of a robust crowd on his first day this week at Churchill Downs. A 10-1 choice on the morning line for the 138th Kentucky Derby, Hansen's antics didn't leave trainer Mike Maker concerned. "Looks like he really had his eyeballs on Take Charge Indy out there," Maker said.

Women are often the backbones of our families - deftly balancing the needs of the household with their personal goals and career ambitions. Over the past few decades that balance has become increasingly important. According to the Pew Research Center, last year 40 percent of all households with children under the age of 18 had mothers who were either the sole or primary source of income for their families. This is a drastic shift that matches the growth of the female workforce. Women now make up nearly half or the labor force, jumping from just over one-third in 1970.

Sam Ball has a Super Bowl ring on his finger from Baltimore's 1970 NFL championship and a plaque on his wall naming him the 1990 Kentucky Soybean Association's Man of the Year. Life has been good to the All-American tackle-turned-farmer, who has reaped the rewards of two jobs well done. "For a country boy to have played for the Colts, alongside seven (future) Hall of Famers, was every kid's dream," said Ball, 70. "Plus, I was their number one draft choice. What an honor. My gosh, that's right up there with cold beer and air. " Baltimore's first-round pick in the 1966 NFL draft, Ball helped anchor the offensive line for four years, during which the Colts (43-9-4)

While most of us were sitting safely in our homes or offices this week watching the news and social media coverage of the announcements by the Ravens and the NFL, hundreds of women in Maryland were walking into courthouses, domestic violence advocates' offices and domestic violence shelters seeking protection from their abusers. This week marked the 20th anniversary of the first passage of the Violence Against Women Act (VAWA). Huge progress has been made since its initial enactment, but the problem has not been solved, and there is clearly still a long way to go. Domestic violence is a serious issue in our community that affects us all - even when it is not in the media spotlight, and even when celebrities are not involved.

Like thousands of others across Maryland, our staff just celebrated our first Purple Friday of the season. We have a long-running office football pool, and each week a miniature traveling statue of Edgar Allan Poe - clad in a Ravens jersey - rests on the winner's desk as a trophy. Though we haven't converted every employee into a tried-and-true Ravens fan (yet), we all agree we're pleased the Ravens' coaching staff took swift action to terminate Ray Rice's contract following Monday's release of the video showing him assaulting his then-fiancée in February.

In the wake of recent deaths linked to electronic dance music events, attendees at Baltimore's first Moonrise Festival said the shows themselves should not be made a scapegoat. Police and fire officials reported no major incidents Saturday at the Moonrise Festival, which continues Sunday. Last weekend, two people, ages 20 and 17, died of what police called suspected drug overdoses after attending the Mad Decent Block Party, which was held at the Merriweather Post Pavilion in Howard County.

Chances are, unless you have a particular interest in the continent of Africa, you may have never heard of the Central African Republic. Even now you would have to be paying attention to international news for this landlocked country of 4.5 million to make a blip on your personal radar screen. But you should be paying attention because there is a humanitarian crisis of immense proportions occurring in the Central African Republic. Like too many countries on its continent, CAR - most refer to it by its initials - has been plagued by bad governance since gaining independence from France in 1958.

With 23 Orioles greats gathered Friday at Camden Yards for the franchise's 60th-anniversary celebration, there were plenty of stories told about the glory days. But there was also a sense that maybe, finally, more magical Orioles moments are coming. "I've seen the caliber of players on all the other teams. No reason we can't win this division," Hall of Famer Brooks Robinson said of the 2014 Orioles. "After that, it's a little pot luck. That's all. You got to play well. You are going to face better pitching.

Does the EDM scene have a drug problem? The question, which has followed the increasingly mainstream electronic dance music genre for years, is being raised again in the wake of the deaths of two males, ages 20 and 17, who attended an all-day EDM show last weekend in Columbia. Nineteen other people were sent to hospitals from Friday's Mad Decent Block Party at Merriweather Post Pavilion, which featured artists such as Diplo, Flux Pavilion and Dillon Francis. The concerns come as Baltimore prepares for the first-ever Moonrise Festival, which will take place Saturday and Sunday at Pimlico Race Course and feature genre heavyweights Kaskade and Bassnectar.
