Thank you for your great reporting to help keep the citizens of Maryland aware of the plan to move the USNS Comfort to Norfolk, Va. ("Navy moving comfort to Va. " Feb. 15). This almost does not make sense given the advantage of keeping the hospital ship in Baltimore and the $40 million it will cost the state in lost economic activity. Sadly, this is just another failure of many in the Maryland General Assembly and our congressional delegation to understand root causes and nip a potential loss in the bud several years ago. If one kept a score sheet of Maryland's private sector jobs and business losses and those that did not select Maryland to set up business over the past decade, the job losses would outnumber the gains.

The way things have gone this week in Baltimore, it would not be a tremendous surprise if news broke tomorrow that Francis Scott Key plagiarized "The Star-Spangled Banner. " Four days after the shocking Ray Rice elevator video placed Charm City in a very uncharming light , Major League Baseball announced on Friday that Orioles corner infielder  Chris Davis has been suspended for 25 games after testing positive for an amphetamine. The suspension is a major blow to the Orioles, who are heading toward the postseason already without star players Manny Machado and Matt Wieters, and a second national embarrassment for a city that remains at the center of the NFL's domestic abuse scandal.

While this week's decision to abandon the proposed $95 million intermodal rail facility at the Mount Clare yard in Southwest Baltimore may be regarded as a big victory for neighbors in Morrell Park and elsewhere who strongly opposed it, the decision is a genuine setback for efforts to expand business at the Port of Baltimore. Hundreds of millions of dollars have been invested in recent years to make the port more competitive and reduce shipping costs; the loss of the planned intermodal facility is likely to have the opposite effect.

America's last combat bugler knew it was time to put down his horn when they started booing him at Memorial Stadium.The year was 1985 and the old soldier, celebrated at the 33rd Street ballpark as "Pat the Bugler," was down to his last four teeth.A man who pantomimed taps before John F. Kennedy's horse-drawn casket, roused Oriole fans through six World Series and knew the privilege of playing a cavalry bugle found amid the carnage of Custer's Last Stand at Little Big Horn, he had to concede that it hurt too much to blow.

NEW YORK - Police officers escorted a pilot off an Air France plane that was scheduled to fly to Paris on Friday after he made comments to baggage screeners that the plane was going to blow up, that he was going to blow up, and that the story would end up on the front page of The New York Times, the authorities said. The incident occurred about 5 p.m. Friday at John F. Kennedy International Airport. A piece of checked luggage belonging to the pilot, whose name was not released, set off an alarm when sent through a large explosive detection machine in the airport, said Amy von Walter, a spokeswoman for the Transportation Security Administration, the agency in charge of screening at the nation's major airports.

LONDON -- One was a well-known student activist at London Metropolitan University whom a friend described as a moderate. Another worked in security at Heathrow airport. Another had a job in a pizza parlor. The youngest of the alleged plotters was only 17. They lived seemingly ordinary lives on ordinary streets in the immigrant neighborhoods of London, Birmingham and High Wycombe in Buckinghamshire. Friends and neighbors could have no idea they were planning murder on a mass scale. But little more than a month after Britain marked the first anniversary of the July 7 suicide attacks that killed 52 London commuters, the nation was slowly coming to grips with reports that another, even more ambitious network had taken root in their midst.

Maersk Inc. has once again cut back its shipping service at the port of Baltimore, greatly diminishing the presence here of one of the world's largest and most prestigious steamship lines.The move this week ending service from Baltimore to the Middle East and India via the Suez Canal stems from Maersk's continuing assessment of how to use the 175-ship fleet resulting from its alliance with Sea-Land Service Inc.The latest decision by Maersk had been anticipated since the Danish shipping company in April abruptly suspended its weekly South American service here.

State officials deeply vested in new Common Core curriculum mandates and tests want us to believe that marked student declines on state tests since Common Core moved into place aren't Common Core's fault ( "MSA warning signs," July 14). Even though Common Core is supposed to be more difficult than previous tests, so far it is not causing children to ace the old tests. Rather, it's been the opposite. That's very odd. But there are two big, interdependent problems with the scenario now playing out in Maryland schools.

OAKLAND, Calif. - Orioles closer Zach Britton hadn't allowed a run over his previous 10 outings heading into the ninth inning of Friday night's series opener against the Oakland Athletics, converting six straight save opportunities along the way. Britton had slid into the role of closer nicely in the first half of the season, but in his first appearance since the All-Star break, a save opportunity turned into a disaster in just six pitches....

NEW YORK - To say Zach Britton has been tremendous this season as the club's closer would be an understatement. He was 9-for-10 in save chances since taking over from Tommy Hunter and picking up his first save May 15 in Kansas City. Before Friday, his only blown save came May 27 in Milwaukee, when he allowed a two-out single to Jonathan Lucroy in a one-run game in the ninth. The Orioles eventually lost in 10 innings when Brewers pitcher-pinch-hitter Yovani Gallardo hit a walk-off double against T.J. McFarland.

NEW YORK - The Orioles managed almost no offense Friday night. Their starting pitcher tied a career high with six walks. And yet they were close to winning. But this is Yankee Stadium, where bad things often happen to the Orioles. True to form Friday night, Carlos Beltran hit a two-out, three-run homer to left field off Orioles closer Zach Britton to give the New York Yankees a 5-3, walk-off win. “You're one good pitch away,” Britton said. “Keeping the ball down, I can get out of that inning.” It was Beltran's seventh homer of the season and the Yankees' first walk-off shot since last August.

Turnover in the midfield is bad, and Loyola Maryland is finding that out this offseason. The Greyhounds, an aggressive team that has thrived when its short-stick defensive midfielders can run and turn defense into offense, are losing two starting short-stick defensive midfielders to graduation. Pat Laconi led all non-long-pole players in caused turnovers with 34, scooped up 31 ground balls and recorded 11 goals and three assists. His linemate, Kyle Duffy, wasn't as prolific in manufacturing points (1 G, 2 A)

MILWAUKEE -- The Orioles and the Milwaukee Brewers may not play against each other often, but they sure do make it entertaining. After the Orioles pulled off a dramatic, extra-inning victory Monday afternoon, the two were back at it Tuesday night. This time, the Brewers won, 7-6, in 10 innings on a pinch-hit, RBI double by the next day's starting pitcher. His game-winning hit followed an intentional walk to former Orioles infielder Mark Reynolds with no one on base and two outs.

Following a 55-minute rain delay that they probably shouldn't have had to endure Saturday night, the Orioles had new life against the Houston Astros. Closer Tommy Hunter had just blown a one-run lead in the top of the ninth inning before a downpour descended on Camden Yards. But when the clouds moved out, the Orioles rallied with two outs in the ninth to force the game into extra innings. Down to their last out, the Orioles loaded the bases before pinch hitter Delmon Young beat out a bouncer to shortstop to drive in the tying run. One inning later, catcher Steve Clevenger (Mount St. Joseph)

BOSTON - Everything seemed to go the Orioles' way for 5 1/2 innings against the Boston Red Sox on Sunday night at Fenway Park. But after an ESPN nationally broadcast returned from a commercial break for the bottom of the sixth, everything unraveled for the Orioles. They lost a five-run lead and Gold Glove shortstop J.J. Hardy to injury. Right-hander Ubaldo Jimenez lost his groove with one pitch that was sent into the Boston night, and the sure-handed Orioles defense committed three errors in the final three innings to set the stage for a walk-off loss, 6-5, to the Red Sox. “That's part of baseball,” Jimenez said.
