What a breath of fresh air was the letter from Rachel McClellan ( "I'm keeping my Ray Rice jersey," Sept. 24). I don't own a Rice jersey. If I did, I would not only keep it, I would wear it in public. It is always amazing to me how the self-righteous among us can act as if they have the right to "cast the first stone. " To be sure, domestic violence is wrong. In my opinion, all violence is wrong. However, there are always two sides to every incident no matter how egregious it appears.

Even as we continued to dissect the National Football League's mishandling of the Ray Rice case and millionaires associated with the matter apologized (again) for being obtuse to domestic violence, the conversation seemed to turn toward a silver lining. To wit: Maybe good will come of this ugliness. The NFL's inadequate reaction to Rice's assault unleashed strong public backlash, heightened awareness of the everyday reality of intimate-partner abuse and forced the league and the Baltimore Ravens to make big-time amends, including a six-figure donation to the House of Ruth Maryland.

If you're a book-lover and football-lover (there really are a few of us out there), you've gotta love Stevie Baggs of the Baltimore Ravens. The Bethune-Cookman University grad is nicknamed "Shakespeare," because he's known for making plays. For the uninitiated, that means he does some eye-opening work on the field. A little bit of football humor, but not bad for a sport known more for head-banging than than for the bon mot. It's fitting that Baggs plays for the Ravens, which has its own rich literary heritage.

Baltimore Sun reporters are stationed along the parade route, from City Hall to M&T Bank Stadium. See their observations, fan interviews and other updates here. #52 Ray Lewis smiled wide to the crowd and yelled "Baltimore!" as he approached the podium. "There's no [better] place on this earth than the city of Baltimore," he said before he referenced his long career. "This city believed in each other from Day 1, 1996 to now, we believed in each other, Baltimore. " "I said this is my last ride," he told fans, "and every moment every time I've stepped into this stadium, what I've recieved is pure love.

Rapper, producer and actor Dr. Dre knows who he likes in the Super Bowl: Ravens to take it all. He tells TMZ that he's with the team that has Ray Lewis on it. "It's a good looking Super Bowl, isn't it?" a TMZ reporter asks Dr. Dre. "Absolutely," Dr. Dre says. "I'm excited for Ray Lewis, man," he continues. "He's a good guy and I'm a fan of his. I'm wishing the best for him. " Not a bad endorsement from a California guy, who -- at least logistically speaking -- would seem inclined to go with San Francisco.

Baltimore Sun staff members weigh in on the Ravens' decision to fire offensive coordinator Cam Cameron and replace him with Jim Caldwell. Jeff Zrebiec, Ravens reporter: As much heat as Cameron has gotten over the past couple of years, today's news is still surprising. The Ravens don't usually make drastic moves like this especially at this stage of the season. But it's clear that the frustration by the team's key offensive players was mounting. Ray Rice was furious after Sunday's loss to the Washington Redskins.

Thanks to the Baltimore Ravens' Super Bowl run, Katrina Carter is on an emotional high. And yes, those are her words. "This season has defintely been an emotional rollercoaster.

And after 12 years, to finally get to cheer them on ... I'm beyond ecstatic!" Carter hasn't missed watching a Ravens game in more than eight years.

  You can only shake your head in wonderment at cable TV when an ESPN show host gets it wrong as to what's in an investigative report that his own channel just published. And worse, it's on one of the biggest stories in the history of professional sports. That happened with Bob Ley on ESPN yesterday as he reported the results of a probe by the channel's "Outside the Lines" team into the Ray Rice elevator attack on his then-fiancée and what is looking more each day like a cover-up on the part of the NFL and the Baltimore Ravens.

Hopes for redevelopment of the former Sparrows Point steel mill in Baltimore County - and the promise of new jobs - took two giant strides forward Thursday as the land was sold to a new owner who also reached agreement with state and federal environmental agencies on a cleanup plan for the polluted site. The massive former Bethlehem Steel facility was shuttered two years ago and auctioned off in a bankruptcy-law proceeding to salvage companies. The land has now been sold for an undisclosed amount to Sparrows Point Terminal, an offshoot of the Hanover-based investment firm Redwood Capital Investments LLC. Under terms of an agreement announced Thursday with the U.S. Environmental Protection Agency and the Maryland Department of the Environment, Redwood Capital will commit $48 million to clean up the property's land and groundwater, and pay $3 million to the EPA to investigate issues in the water surrounding Sparrows Point.

Not long ago, it was suggested by more than one sportswriter that the Baltimore Orioles would never again win the American League East. Not merely because they were bad (although during the post-1997 cellar-dwelling years, they certainly were) but because the checkbook-advantaged franchises in New York and Boston had too great an advantage in the age of free agency. So that raucous celebration by players and fans alike Tuesday evening at Camden Yards after the Orioles clinched the division with an 8-2 victory over the Toronto Blue Jays was understandable and well-deserved.

The Maryland Republican Party admitted Wednesday that it used a trademarked logo of the Baltimore Ravens to raise funds without seeking the team's permission. The party's executive director said it had been an error on his part. The unauthorized use of the purple-and-black logo and Ravens shield came as the party publicized a fundraiser at a private home in Edgewater. In emails, on Facebook and on the party Web page, the state GOP used the logo to invite people to "an afternoon of Ravens football and Republican Party politics" during Sunday's game against the Cleveland Browns.

THE PRESIDENT:  Hello, everybody!  Welcome to the White House.  (Applause.)  And welcome to the Super Bowl Champion -- world champion -- Baltimore Ravens.  (Applause.)  Everybody can have a seat.  That's why we set up chairs.  (Laughter.)        Now, I suspect that these guys are wondering, what kind of introduction is that?  No smoke machine.  (Laughter.)  No fire cannons.  Obama didn't even tear up chunks of turf and rub them on his suit.  (Laughter.)  That reminds me, by the way -- please don't do that on the South Lawn.  (Laughter.)

All McD App users in the Baltimore area will be notified and get a digital coupon to redeem for a Big Mac the next day.

It seems to me that the NFL and the Baltimore Ravens' staff are severely lacking in management skills ( "Ravens executives address Ray Rice investigation in exclusive interview," Sept. 10). I believe that most people feel that consistency is the key to good management. You can be a micro-manager or laissez-faire one as either can be a great manager but if your employees do not know what to expect whether it be to go hard one day and easy the next, one is judged as having poor management skills.

As a band played during his New Orleans-themed 45th birthday party Saturday night at Pimlico Race Course, Ravens senior advisor of player development O.J. Brigance smiled as he enjoyed the festivities. Diagnosed with amyotrophic lateral sclerocis in 2007, the retired former Ravens linebacker is upbeat about the success of the popular Ice Bucket Challenge and the money and awareness it's raising for ALS research. ALS is a degenerative motor neuron disease also known as Lou Gehrig's Disease.
