A former Anne Arundel County police rookie who was stripped of his badge four years ago after he admitted he had photographed himself fondling a teenager's breasts during a traffic stop pleaded guilty Friday to assaulting another woman. Joseph Francis Mosmiller, 27, was sentenced to 30 days in jail by Anne Arundel County Circuit Court Judge Paul A. Hackner, who told him to consider the incarceration for second-degree assault a "kick in the pants" incentive to change his ways. The rest of a three-year sentence was suspended in favor of three years on probation.

The badge of a Baltimore police officer deflected a bullet fired by an assailant last night during a struggle in a dark alley, leaving the officer slightly injured and sending police on an intense search for the attacker, authorities said. Officer James Howard was treated last night at Maryland Shock Trauma Center for bruises and minor injuries and released, officials said. The outcome could have been far worse. "He's very lucky," Police Commissioner Edward T. Norris said. "The badge is going in the police museum."

Pity the local police chief trying to stay neutral in an election season. His actions can be construed as an endorsement of a candidate — but then, so can a perceived failure to act. Take the case of Baltimore County Police Chief James W. Johnson. He recently wrote a letter to a council candidate to stop using an image of an official county police badge in his ads, and quickly got blasted by the candidate and his lawyer. Chief Johnson has warned his own officers about not reproducing the badge.

John Strausbaugh understands all too well that while presidents come and go, Elvis remains eternal.Part essay, part photo album, Mr. Strausbaugh's new book, "Alone With the President," cogently examines the convergence of popularity and political power as manifested in U.S. presidents from John Kennedy to Ronald Reagan.In fact, the image that stares out from the book's cover reduces that popularity-as-power equation to convenient shorthand: Richard Nixon in a bizarre grip-and-grin shot with Elvis Presley.
