In Tony Horwitz's book about John Brown's 1859 raid on Harper's Ferry, "Midnight Rising", he writes that Brown was captured on Oct. 16, his trial commenced on Oct. 25, and he was found guilty on Oct. 31. Brown was sentenced on Nov. 2 and hung on Dec. 2, 1859. Justice was delivered in an exact, brief manner. There is absolutely no reason why the trial of the surviving suspect in the Boston bombing, Dzhokhar Tsarnaev, can't be expedited in a similarly timely fashion. The outcome of course depends on the trial and jury.

The mayhem in Boston the week of April 15 was a reminder of how an American city can be paralyzed by a homemade bomb. The same kinds of improvised explosive devices that menaced U.S. troops in Iraq and Afghanistan can easily be deployed by freelance terrorists or madmen trying to send a message, incite panic or just create a media spectacle. The Tsarnaev brothers were identified as suspects in the bombing because of surveillance videotape, but the FBI might have been able to do it faster if tiny plastic markers had been part of the small-arms propellant packed into the pressure-cooker bombs.

What happened in Boston is horrific. But I'm wondering why the media continues to paste the culprits faces all over ("Bombing suspect faces U.S. charges," April 23)? They have been caught and the investigation will continue. Why provide the type of recognition that future bombers want? Domestic terrorism can be reduced if the media stops providing millions of dollars of free advertising to the extremists that want a stage for their cause. How many other disgruntled people will look at the coverage and think, "that could be me on the front page?"

One of the consequences of abandoning a standard by which right and wrong can be judged is our increasing inability to mete out punishment that fits the crime. In fact, too often we weigh extenuating circumstances rather than guilty actions. In the case of the Boston bombers, observers search for reasons why the attacks occurred. But the failure to view the attackers as anything other than simply guilty and judge them accordingly is similar to the U.S. government's attitude toward the Middle East, which often sees Israel as the major impediment to peace.

The 7,000 B-26 Marauders built by the Glenn L. Martin Company are the most common image of ''Baltimore bombers,'' the name just given to Baltimore's hoped-for NFL football team. Less well known is a bomber actually called the ''Baltimore,'' which Martin built for the British Royal Air Force. Nearly 1,600 Baltimores were turned out by Martin's factory in Middle River between 1941 and 1944.A few years ago when on sabbatical in England, I encountered this plane when I took my two sons to the RAF Museum in suburban London.

WASHINGTON - There was something symbolic about the fact that the U.S. Immigration and Naturalization Service sent out letters approving visas for the terrorist leaders Mohamed Atta and Marwan al-Shehhi and that those letters arrived at their Florida flight school on the six-month anniversary of the Sept. 11 massacre, which the two of them directed. Some things you just can't make up. It was symbolic precisely because we are forgetting some of the most important truths about Sept. 11 - so why shouldn't the INS?

KANDAHAR, Afghanistan -- A suicide bomber cloaked in a burqa killed at least 12 other people and wounded at least 27 yesterday in southwestern Afghanistan, a sparsely populated region where Taliban militants have increased attacks in recent months. The Taliban claimed responsibility for the assault and denied that the bomber was a woman. A Taliban spokesman, Qari Yousuf Ahmadi, said the intended target was a local police commander. Officials said that a large number of police and civilians were among the victims.

WASHINGTON -- Twelve years since its development began during the Cold War, the first of 20 B-2 Stealth bombers entered the Air Force combat fleet yesterday with an uncertain mission and a price tag so expensive that proven bombers will be mothballed to make room for the high-tech planes.The Air Force, which fought hard to add the world's most sophisticated nuclear bomber to its arsenal, heralded the B-2's arrival at Whiteman Air Force Base in Missouri as the beginning of what the generals call a new era of "global reach, global power."

MOSCOW -- Russian President Vladimir V. Putin said yesterday that he has ordered the resumption of long-range strategic bomber flights, a return to a Cold War-era practice and another sign that the Kremlin is flexing its military might amid a deepening chill in relations with the U.S. Putin's decision comes a week after Russian fighter jets flew within a few hundred miles of a U.S. military base in Guam. Yesterday, several pairs of Russian Tu-160 and Tu-95MC bombers were flying over Atlantic and Pacific waters, Russian Air Force spokesman Alexander Drobyshevsky told the Russian news agency Itar-Tass.

WASHINGTON -- The Senate endorsed yesterday President Bush's two top military priorities, the stealth bomber and the "star wars" anti-missile defense system, rejecting arguments that the easing of Cold War tensions and closer U.S.-Soviet ties made the weapons unnecessary.In a series of votes, the Senate approved $4.6 billion for the next fiscal year to test sensors in space and begin fielding an anti-missile defense system by 1996 that would protect the United States against limited nuclear attacks.

Woodward, a World War II bomber pilot who recounted in a 1998 book how his squadron of 12 planes was attacked by a secret German Luftwaffe unit called the Storm Group while returning from a daylight bombing mission over Germany, died from complications of a stroke Monday at his Rodgers Forge home. He was 84. After the war, he became a stockbroker in Baltimore and founded a company in Timonium to market golf gloves he designed. Mr. Woodward was born and raised in New Orleans. His college studies at Tulane University were interrupted when he enlisted in the Army Air Corps in 1941.

BAGHDAD -- A suicide bomber walked undetected into a funeral yesterday and blew himself up, killing as many as 17 people and injuring nine in a predominantly Sunni village near Tikrit, police said. The explosion in the Hajaj village killed Iraqis attending a funeral for Antar Abdullah, a tribal leader and brother of the Salahuddin provincial governor's security chief. The security officer, Ahmed Abdullah, left the funeral minutes before the attack and was not injured. Many other officials - police, tribal chiefs and members of volunteer security forces - also attended the funeral, although police said they survived the bombing.
