Emily Bazelon, author of a deeply researched book on teenage bullying titled "Sticks and Stones," tells this story on herself. She is riding a subway and a group of teens starts tormenting a vulnerable - poor or perhaps homeless - man. She watches and then says to herself, "Wait, what am I doing sitting here? I am writing a book about bullying!" She intervenes, and the young people turn on her. When the train stops, they follow her out of the car and into the station, taunting her and threatening her. She feels the eyes of everyone in the station on her. She hears them wondering what she has done to merit all this anger.

Severn sophomore forward Eddy Shoop was fairly certain she scored two goals in her freshman soccer season last year, but she thought one of them might have come in a scrimmage. So after she was reminded that she already has five goals in the No. 4 Admirals' 3-0 start - including the game-winner in the final minute of a 1-0 win over No. 12 Severna Park (0-2) on Monday - she couldn't help but giggle. "Oh, my gosh. It's so cool," she said.  Severn goalie Alayah Hightower (eight saves)

BOSTON - And so once more, we dip our ladle into the alphabet soup of character. Only this time the letter that keeps coming up is B for Bully. Ever since John R. Bolton was nominated to be U.S. ambassador to the United Nations, he's been described as abrasive, brash, difficult. He's been called a "serial abuser" of underlings and a "quintessential kiss-up, kick-down sort of guy." Questions about whether he has the T for Temperament to be our diplomat to the world body now have his nomination teetering.

"When government fears the people, there is liberty. When the people fear the government, there is tyranny. " While there may be dispute as to source of this famous quote, the content is unquestionable. Government at any level administered through the hand of intimidation, fear and unethical practice "becomes the master and we the people become their servants. " Alison Knezevich's article "Balto. Co. police should not have contacted Dundalk activist, chief says," (July 28), clearly identifies the principle of such intimidation and fear as imposed upon those who dare to contradict or challenge those elected to serve.

Q. I read your advice to the woman whose grandchild was being picked on at school. As chairperson of the Parent Focus Group for the Ribbon of Promise National Campaign to End School Violence (www.ribbonofpromise.org), I disagree with your solution. Children cannot handle the bully's behavior by themselves. They need the positive reinforcement of an adult to show the bully that such behavior is unacceptable. What parents should do when their child comes to them about bullying is support them and praise them for coming forward.

Based on the number of televised GOP candidate debates in 2008, we are just about halfway through the process with tonight's CNN-hosted debate on foreign policy. I am encouraged by the big audiences of up to 6 million tuning in for some of the debates. But I am dismayed by some of the show biz priorities the cable channels are surrendering themselves to in hopes of getting a piece of that tasty Nielsen pie. I am thinking here of CNBC using Jim Cramer as a moderator, and him sounding like Gilbert Gottfried in his first screaming, squawking question to the candidate.

WHAT COULD HAVE possessed 73-year-old John Chaney to do what he did? To send a student into a basketball game with instructions to give students from another school a lesson in how to act like a bully, a strong-arm enforcer, a thug. "I'm sending a message," Temple's coach said after a game last Tuesday night against Saint Joseph's, a rival Philadelphia university. "I'm going to send in what we used to do years ago ... send in the goon." Put yourself in the place of Nehemiah Ingram, a 22-year-old Temple senior.

SKIDMORE, Mo. - The people in this small town wonder how such horrible things could happen in a place they treasure for its friendly rural charms. First came the notorious "Skidmore bully," Ken Rex McElroy, whose death made national headlines. When somebody gunned him down in broad daylight in 1981, nobody would admit to having seen a thing. Then on Oct. 16, 2000, Wendy Gillenwater was stomped to death by her boyfriend. Local residents take comfort in knowing that the killer is serving life in prison.

Some of us drove out to St. Joseph Hospital the other day to see the old boxer Joe Finazzo in his final hours. But it felt all wrong. There was Joe, lying on his back, which is a place no fighter wants to be found.''Let's get the hell outta here,'' somebody said to Joe. ''This place is for sick people.''It was a last, lame attempt to cheer him up. You think of the Finazzos, you think of boxing. You think of strong men who triumphed in a hungry time. You do not connect the wasted figure lying in the bed with the man of fight legend.

There was a method to this madness. Meaning that night more than three weeks ago when a caravan of trucks and buses descended on a boarding school in rural Nigeria and more than 200 schoolgirls were abducted from their beds. As is often the case with acts of terror, this mass kidnapping was accomplished with a theatricality and audacity designed to inspire awe. But the act of terror was also an act of fear. What the 2012 shooting of Malala Yousafzai in Pakistan suggested, the mid-April taking of these Christian and Muslim children makes abundantly clear: Extremist Islam is scared of little girls.

America has crossed a few ominous thresholds that should give us pause. For one, poisonings are killing more people than car crashes in the United States, making them the leading cause of accidental death in the country for the first time. The vast majority of those deaths are from legal, prescription drugs. Second, more children report having been tormented and harassed online than in "real-life"; 43 percent of kids claim to be victims of such cyber-bullying. According to Yale University, victims of bullying are nearly 10 times more likely to consider suicide than non-victims.

It is despicable that Glenelg High School won't allow students to acknowledge the terrible loss of a young person as a result of bullying ( "Blue ribbons for Grace," March 26). It is a cowardly act on the part of the school to use the excuse that it would be glorifying her death. That is absurd. As educators, the school should be embracing an incredibly powerful "teachable moment" to a captive audience of students, parents, siblings, friends and extended family members. Let the message be broadcast as far and as often as possible: Bullying kills and there is zero tolerance policy for such behavior everywhere in society.

A winning anti-bullying slogan by eighth-grader Giulia Parsons brought officials and students together at Ridgely Middle Tuesday morning to officially kick off Baltimore County Public Schools' first Bullying Prevention Week. Giulia's slogan, "Loving is Louder," was selected from a group of submissions from county students, and represents her school's belief that bullying can be stopped by anyone — not just a bully or a victim. "Here at Ridgely, the principal and my guidance counselor focus on the bystander, so I feel like bystanders are very important," Giulua said.

I was in attendance at the recent Baltimore County PTA Council meeting mentioned by letter writer Laura McDowell, and I can assure you that her description of the meeting is inaccurate and actually a bit offensive ( "Hereford bullies," Feb. 26). Although the number of representatives from high schools across the county was low, I have attended several PTA Council meetings, and low attendance is unfortunately typical. The PTSA at Loch Raven supports the new schedule change for Loch Raven.

"In 'The Ant Bully' by John Nickle, a boy named Lucas is bullied by another boy, Sid. Just as Sid picks on him, Lucas picks on ants by squirting them with. The ants shrink Lucas to be as small as them and teach him a lesson: not to bully someone smaller than you." -- Jason Davis Jr. Cross Country Elementary "The book 'Demolition Derby' by Jeff Savage is a terrific book. The story is about cars crashing into each other to get the drivers out of the race. One reason I like this book is because I'm interested in demolition derby cars."

Having attended the PTA meeting Laura McDowell refers to ("Hereford bullies," Feb. 26), I am at the very least perplexed about her letter. The term "Hereford Zone" came from a weather definition for an area comprising over 200 miles that is effected much differently by weather than, say, Essex and Dundalk. Having lived in the Hereford Zone for over 40 years, I have never heard it described as an area of bullies. It is a community that rallies for the students, rallies for those in need, and yes stands up to local government that is bullying it's students.
