I just received my complimentary approved clear plastic bag from the Ravens designed to carry my ID, glasses, cellphone and lipstick into M&T Bank Stadium ("Fans are left holding the bag," Aug. 14). This decidedly unstylish bag would not be my choice to carry my necessary items. I can only imagine that the National Football League policy that predicated this design was made by a man. No woman I know would want to carry her highly personal items in a bag for all to see. No woman wants to carry a zip-lock bag as a purse.

The Sunshine State is looking more and more like the Natural Disaster State as the ladies and their husbands continue their vacations. Last episode ended with Jim accusing Bobby of seeing other women, which caused a lot of yelling, cursing and Bobby hiding in the bathroom. The drama continued when Jim made a reference to Rino sleeping with the other Teresa's mother. (Jim is a little rat who needs to learn to keep his mouth shut.) Shall we begin? First, a spoiler alert. Last week, in the real world, we found out that Teresa G. was found guilty of mortgage fraud and will spend 15 months in jail.

The problem in the city regarding trash is the city residents themselves ("A better bag tax," June 12). I drive the Fulton/Monroe corridor every day, and if there's a pile of trash accumulating on the street, every day it just gets larger. Car occupants dump their ashtray or will drop a McDonald's bag out the car window onto the street. What's lacking in a city is not a bag tax, its pride in your city. R.J. Stryjewski, Baltimore

Environmentalists will team up Saturday to build support for a 5-cent plastic bag fee in Baltimore by handing out reusable bags and taking part in a citywide cleanup effort. Blue Water Baltimore, Waterfront Partnership, Chesapeake Bay Foundation, Trash Free Maryland Alliance, Clean Water Action and volunteers will fan out across Baltimore to pick up litter in a show of support for legislation introduced by Councilman James B. Kraft that would impose a fee on most plastic bags distributed in the city.

If Washington, D.C., and Montgomery County residents and business are content with taxes on shopping bags, that's fine ( "Bag tax economics," Jan. 23). This is Baltimore. I believe residents and businesses should have a say about the 10-cent a bag charge. To enact this law without input from voters would be taxation without representation (and we know what that led to). When Baltimore citizens are gunned down on city streets, our mayor and City Council should have more on their minds than shopping bags.

When Oprah Winfrey purchases 5,500 of your bags and gives them as gifts to guests at one of her conferences, it's safe to say that you a are a force to be reckoned with. Danielle DiFerdinando's brand of handbags and accessories, Danielle Nicole, has received a huge following in a relatively short amount of time. At the tender age of 26, DiFerdinando has already accomplished what veteran designers have waited their whole lives to do. She has the distinction of being the youngest vendor ever to be sold at Bergdorf Goodman, where she worked in the buying office and as a personal shopper for the famed luxury store.

The storm left us without power for 44 hours and we all are blessed to be restored so quickly. During that time we searched for ice. After searching about six establishments, we found the liquor store in Linwood shopping center recommending going to another vendor in the same shopping center — aisle 14 they told us. Sure enough aisle 14 had someone loading a reach-in freezer with more ice. The merchant stated take as much as you need....

Washington Metro police began random inspections of passengers' bags and packages Tuesday morning, irritating some riders and reassuring others. A handful of Metro Transit Police, bomb-sniffing dogs and Transportation Security Administration officers hastily set up inspection tables near the entrances to the Braddock Road and College Park stations, pulling aside customers with bags large enough to carry an explosive device. Law enforcement officials have uncovered two alleged threats against Metro in recent weeks.

Prince George's County police are investigating a murder after officers found body parts in bags Sunday at an apartment complex in Laurel. The victim was identified Monday as Jacinto Perez, 28, of Laurel. A motive and suspects have not been determined. About 9:30 a.m. Sunday, police were called to the 8800 block of Enfield Court in Laurel for a report of a dead body in a bag. Once officers arrived, they found a second bag with more body parts, police said. Detectives believe the body parts belong to the same victim.

I enjoyed reading and agree with Jerome Israel's commentary "The U.S. needs Russia" (Aug. 23) At a time when the entire Middle East is in chaos and aflame, it seems strange that U.S. leaders would pick a fight with Russia over Ukraine that could lead to another world war. We need to put our feet in the shoes of the Russians in order to realize why they are so upset. NATO has adopted a very aggressive stance toward Russia ever since the fall of the Berlin Wall. The alliance, which should have been disbanded in 1989, has marched relentlessly eastward, absorbing former Soviet satellites.

In reconstructing events in a fatal crash on Route 3 in Anne Arundel County, investigators obtained key evidence from a source many people probably don't know even exists: an air bag control module. The obscure part in the 2008 Chevrolet Cobalt driven by Elizabeth Haley Meyers showed the car came to a full stop before crossing the busy highway in front of a motorcycle that struck the car. That evidence refuted the statement of an eyewitness who told police he saw her texting without slowing down before pulling onto the highway from a shopping center.

The check-out inquiry was "paper or plastic?" But it's no longer a choice. Merchants love plastic. It's easy to store and less expensive than paper. Multiple bags can handle heavier items. Thin plastic wraps around whatever is in the bag and around one's hand. But that clinging feature is horrible for the aquatic environment ( "Plastic bag fee for city shoppers proposed - again," May 9). The new bag ban fans are local governments. Montgomery County and Washington, D.C., have them.

How's this for a solution to the plastic bag problem that would not penalize poor people ( "Bag the bag tax," May 12)? As a community service, supermarkets could give a 5-cent credit on their bill to anyone who brought and used reusable bags for their purchases, as some stores already do. This would mean that those who were not bothered about a 5-cent fee and continued to use plastic bags would subsidize those who were affected by the cost....

The modern age of Maryland political corruption ranges from the early 1970s and the epic and repugnant crimes of Spiro T. Agnew in Baltimore County to the creepy and nutty (and pending) misconduct charges against John Leopold in Anne Arundel County. Mr. Agnew was old-school greedy and arrogant; he took cash bribes as county executive, as Maryland governor and even as vice-president of the United States (in the Executive Office Building next to the White House). He was an extortion all-star, and good friend of Frank Sinatra.

Durkee's bag mixes cover entrees from meatloaf to pork chops to fish. We tried Barbecue Spareribs, Lemon Butter Fish and Sweet & Sour Chicken, and found them all tasty.

The bag tax is back, and we must admit it's current incarnation is a lot less objectionable than the earlier attempts. The proposal that's getting shopped around the Baltimore City Council (including at a public hearing to be held Tuesday morning at City Hall) would impose a 5-cent fee on plastic bags handed out by city stores. We still don't think it's the right time to impose yet another tax on city residents - and a particularly regressive one at that since the affluent are more apt to buy and use reusable bags - but we concede it's a much closer call than previous attempts.

A renewed effort is underway in Baltimore to impose a fee on most plastic bags handed out in city stores - and supporters believe that charging a nickel for each bag, rather than a dime, will allow the measure to gain enough backing to become law. But some local retailers have joined environmentalists in saying that the city needs to put the charge on both paper and plastic bags. Environmentalists want to encourage city shoppers to carry reusable bags to preserve resources and reduce litter.
