If Baltimore Gas and Electric can legally pass on the cost of the recent outage - along with the fines to them associated with their slow response to the people who suffered through the weeklong blackout - how is a fine effective in preventing future delayed reactions from BGE? Perhaps fines deducted from their executives' obscene bonuses would be a better idea. Deborah Greenstein

For 34 years, Brass Balls Saloon has been a go-to location on Ocean City 's boardwalk, providing live entertainment daily and a whole lot of hilarious "balls"-related puns. To no one's surprise, and much to my 13-year-old's sense of humor's delight, the cocktail menu is no different. While widely known for introducing the Rum Runner to the Mid-Atlantic via Key West, Fla., alongside nearby Seacrets , Brass Balls Saloon's vast party cocktail menu doesn't disappoint with its summery blends.

Bankruptcy is for those who are legally insolvent, unable to pay their debts. So how is it that RG Steel is planning to pay multi-million dollar bonuses to 10 executives ("RG Steel executive bonuses approved by federal judge," July 19)? Since they were running the company, one would assume they created this financial disaster and therefore should be that last in line to receive any payments. Anne Hackney, Parkton

Amid a bloody start to the New Year following a violent 2013, City Council members asked police leaders at a hearing Tuesday whether they've changed something for the worse. "Baltimore has come too far to let the violence of years past return," said Councilman Brandon Scott, the vice chair of the public safety committee. He called last year a "failure" that citizens shared with police. The first six days of 2014 saw eight homicides across the city. And while many other large cities saw continued reductions last year, Baltimore recorded 235 homicides, the highest number in four years.

John Oliver, who was so impressive as guest host of "The Daily Show," is leaving Comedy Central for HBO where he will have his own weekly comedy series, the premium channel announced Thursday. The show, which is scheduled to debut in 2014, will offer a satirical look at the week's events and air on Sunday nights -- the biggest night for HBO. "We weren't otherwise searching for another weekly talk show, but when we saw John Oliver handling host duties on 'The Daily Show,' we knew that his singular perspective and distinct voice belonged on HBO," Michael Lombardo, president of programming at HBO, said in a statement.

Baltimore Police Commissioner Anthony W. Batts offered an open hand to the LGBT community at a hate-crime forum in Mount Vernon on Thursday night, saying he wants to stand "shoulder-to-shoulder" with community members to improve officers' interactions with them on the ground. "We're here to be open, we're here to engage, we're here to be part of the community -- all parts of the community," Batts said. The event, held at the Waxter Center as part of this week's Baltimore Black Pride celebration, drew a small crowd -- organizers said the rain probably kept some away -- but had a large presence from the police department, with the department's top brass heavily represented.

The secret of great conducting, said the French master Pierre Monteux with a smile, is never to look encouragingly at the brass section.Ever shushed by conductors intent on balancing their precious string and woodwind sonorities, brass players often sit and dream of circumstances when they can really cut loose.Oh, there are occasional Janacek "Sinfoniettas" and Mahler "Firsts" where they can let it fly, but in most of the repertoire, the conductor poops the party just as things start to get interesting.

Baltimore Sun columnist Mike Preston answers a selection of reader questions about the Ravens' 23-20 loss to the Pittsburgh Steelers on Sunday at M&T Bank Stadium. Richard in Baltimore: After years of inconsistency, do you think the Ravens' brass is truly sold on Joe Flacco as the long-term solution to our QB plan? In your opinion, should they pay Joe what he wants? Or what are the chances he walks and heads into free agency Mike Preston: Richard, if the Ravens' brass was sold on Flacco as a top-shelf quarterback, he would already be paid like one.  It is really that simple.
