Interesting story about the tarmac delays and cancelled flights, which I read in The Baltimore Sun ("Canceled flights climbing," July 21). The airlines "warned" us that many flights would be cancelled if this regulation was passed. I wonder if some of the airlines are being over-zealous in cancelling these flights in the first few months of implementation to show the worst-case scenario. Even so, I am surprised that the writer did not question the math of aviation consultant Darryl Jenkins, who may have had a vested interest in the study.

Republican Larry Hogan canceled an appearance today at a gubernatorial forum about child care and early education. Campaign spokesman Adam Dubitksy said Hogan has been ill and visited a doctor today. Hogan will take today to recuperate before hitting the campaign trail again this weekend, Dubitksy said.  "For the last nine months, Larry has been out campaigning 16-plus hours a day, seven days a week, participating forums, granting interviews, and meeting with overtaxed Marylanders from all walks of life," Dubitksy said in an email.

The Moonrise Festival, a new electronic dance concert that was expected to draw thousands to South Baltimore, has been canceled only weeks before the event, after organizers failed to obtain the necessary permits, city officials said. The festival had been promoted as a successor to the long-running Starscape Festival. After safety problems at last year's Starscape event, including overcrowding and drug overdoses, city officials said that event could not return to Fort Armistead Park.

The Baltimore Sun Democrat Anthony G. Brown delivered a message about the constraints of budget pressures as he appeared Friday before a group of advocates for child and family programs. Republican gubernatorial candidate Larry Hogan also was scheduled to appear at the forum at Towson University, but organizers said Hogan canceled Thursday night because he was sick. Brown told advocates at the Maryland Family Network event that he is firmly committed to their priorities. "There will always be a role for us in the public sector, working with the nonprofit community, to see that there's a backstop" for families in need, Brown said.

Update 5:45 p.m. Media outlets are reporting that the race has been canceled. Do you agree with the decision? Earlier in the day when Mayor Michael Bloomberg said the race would go on he argued it would add a big economic boost to the city during a time it really needs it. But others argued that the city in its fragile state from storm Sandy couldn't handle thousands of visitors running through the streets. Rescheduling the race would be hard. The logistics of a marathon are daunting and New York's attracts people from around the world.

In keeping with national trends, 60 percent more women than men enroll at Towson University. Graduation rates for women versus men are similar. It wasn't that long ago that universities were tripping over themselves to increase the enrollment and graduation of women.

A nationally televised college football game between Navy and Air Force at a sold-out stadium in Annapolis could become one of the more visible casualties of the U.S. government shutdown. While Navy athletic director Chet Gladchuk said Tuesday that a final decision would not be reached until noon Thursday, Air Force officials issued a statement that said the game was being called off “for now” along with all other intercollegiate sports events. Gladchuk said there was a “significant possibility” that the game would be canceled, adding that “it's going to be a setback of the highest order if this game doesn't happen.” But Gladchuk is holding out hope that the U.S. Department of Defense will allow the game to be played.

A contributing factor in the chronic sleepiness of teens is daylight saving time. When daylight saving time is in effect, if you rise at 6 a.m., it is really 5 a.m. It's no wonder they are tired. Daylight saving time is an archaic custom that is intended to fool us into moving our schedule an hour earlier. With the phasing out of incandescent lighting, it serves little useful purpose in the 21st century. Why not at least return to standard time when school begins? If we let teens sleep until the sun rises, they may not be so drowsy or cranky.
