The great news of New York Mayor Michael Bloomberg's wonderful gift to Johns Hopkins University, which will also benefit our city and state, was relegated to page two of The Sun ("Bloomberg donates $350 million to Johns Hopkins for research, scholarships," June 26). However, the Sunday New York Times featured it on the front page. Shame on The Sun. Fay Greenbaum

Later this month, an estimated 5,000 Presbyterians from all over the country will gather in Detroit for the General Assembly of the Presbyterian Church (USA). Among them will be 645 elected commissioners. This year, those commissioners will be voting on marriage equality. Decisions made at this General Assembly will affect the lives of lesbian, gay, bisexual, transgender and queer (LGBTQ) couples in the denomination who want their marriages to be blessed with the same joy and affirmation as the marriages of other couples in the church.

If the editors of The Sun believe that a recently-issued apology by the Howard County school board ("Howard school board apologizes for segregation," Nov. 16) that relates to treatment of African-American students 49 years ago warrants front page above the fold coverage, it cannot be considered to be a serious newspaper.

  The apology by CBS News for a Benghazi report it aired Oct. 27 on "60 Minutes" is big, bad news for the network. Lara Logan, who was the correspondent on the report, went on the network's morning show and made the apology in the video that runs with this post. Logan told viewers of "CBS This Morning" Friday that "60 Minutes" was wrong in believing the account of a source who said he was an eye witness to some of what took place during an attack in 2012 on the U.S. diplomatic compound in Benghazi.

Midweek Madness could not help but notice today's big news from the Supreme Court, and could not resist a musical blast from the past that has lyrics about such things as "love" and "justice" and "freedom" -- but is also just ever so slightly campy (this is a Scopitone performance, and you know Scopitone is just another word for camp). On top of everything else, this clip provides an excuse to celebrate the divine Debbie Reynolds. What more could you ask from a single installment of Midweek Madness?

Along with the big news that Stillwater Ales founder Brian Strumke will soon be opening his own bar in Canton came with the equally big news that his partner in the business, which will be called Of Love and Regret, is Ted Stelzenmuller, the chef/owner of Canton's beloved Jack's Bistro. Brian's sister, Brenda Strumke, is the establishment's owner. (If you haven't heard about Of Love and Regret, Erik Maza has all of the details on Midnight Sun .) As Stelzenmuller begins to focus on opening OLaR, he will be keeping one foot in Jack's Bistro.

Recently, a huge community meeting was held in Canton to discuss the Red Line and how it would impact the flood plain along Boston Street. Elected officials and all major news media were invited to attend. Unfortunately, The Sun, and the TV media did not feel it necessary to report this local news. The Sun would prefer to write articles about President Barack Obama's golf game and will apparently wait for the next big storm to report big news of a Red Line tunnel being flooded and costing millions of dollars to repair.

Steve Jobs did his usual job of prestidigitation at this week's Macworld expo. This was no mean feat, considering that Apple's CEO and pitchman extraordinaire had to follow last year's spectacular iPhone launch with a much less impressive bag of tricks. But he managed to prove that Apple has turned the corner from also-ran computer company to premiere purveyor of gadgets and entertainment. That's where the market, and the money, is today, so Apple is chasing it. The really big news was about movies.

Think the impending military Base Realignment and Closure plan, with its anticipated influx of 40,000 new residents to the region, will put pressure on the local housing and highway infrastructures? Then consider what's scheduled to take place at the Maryland Zoo in Baltimore late next spring when the pachyderm population will increase by 150 percent. Under an arrangement between the Philadelphia Zoo and the Maryland Zoo, three African elephants named Petal, Kallie and Bette will be transferred from their home near the not-so-savannaesque Schuylkill Expressway for new lodgings at an improved and enlarged range in Druid Hill Park.

Baltimore gets lots of face time in “VEEP,” the Maryland-made HBO political satire starring Julia Louis-Dreyfus. But so far, all of it has been as a stand-in for Washington, the setting of this fictional series about the vice president of the United States. Last week, the Ottobar and the New Wyman Park restaurant doubled as D.C. settings for a rock concert and a breakfast meeting between two political aides. This week, however, in an episode titled “Baseball,” Baltimore gets to play itself in a story line that finds Vice President Selina Meyer (Louis-Dreyfus)

It's a slow night on TV -- but for once, I'm not complaining. After so many days on "O. J. watch," I could use a slow night.* "Women of the House" (8 p.m.-8:30 p.m., Channel 13) -- The plot of tonight's show has Jennifer (Julie Hagerty) deciding to change her image. Since Ms. Hagerty joined the cast only a week ago, isn't it a little presumptuous to figure she even has an image? CBS.* "ABC News Special" (10 p.m.-11 p.m., Channel 2) -- The title of this special is "Boys and Girls Are Different: Men, Women and the Sex Difference."
