There is a way out for President Barack Obama as he attempts to cope with Edward Snowden's disclosures about the National Security Agency's overreaching eavesdropping, the turbulent world reaction, and the lack of truthfulness shown by National Intelligence Director James Clapper and NSA Director Keith Alexander. The President should seize the initiative by suggesting to both that they "spend more time with their families. " Not since President George W. Bush attacked Iraq has there been so much discontent among our closest allies with U.S. behavior.

More than 500 runners went on parade Saturday in the Fila/Foot Locker 5K Preakness Run, and for winner Gerry Clapper, the race represented a Triple Crown of sorts.Clapper, who had won the Howard County Striders' Duckworth Relays 5K and the Clyde's American 10K this year, added the Preakness Run to his laurels with a 14-minute, 48-second finish."Going up Charles [Street] -- going uphill -- was a little tough," Clapper, 33, of Columbia said about the run through downtown Baltimore. "I didn't feel real smooth at the beginning, but I'm gearing up for the Constellation in two weeks, so this was a good tuneup."

Joe Wasserman, everyone's favorite Howard County Strider, says of Gerry Clapper's efforts as race director of the club's inaugural Run through the Grapevine 8K cross country race: "It's good to see an elite runner put some time and effort into volunteer duties as a race director."Nadia Wasserman, Joe's wife and president of the Striders, seconds that emotion: "He came to a board meeting with the idea. He came back with the place, the idea, and he followed through on it. It's very unusual to see an elite runner go to these lengths."

Maybe one of these years there will be a break in the weather, but for at least one more year, sultry conditions were on course for the 19th running of the Annapolis Ten-Mile Run.Baltimore runners tell tales of driving to Annapolis in fog in years past, running the 7:50 a.m.-start race and returning home with fog still hovering.Ninety-percent humidity and a 78-degree temperature Sunday kept with the tradition of the race.And to make matters worse, re-routing of the course because of construction on the Naval Academy grounds made the test more difficult.

WASHINGTON -- The Pentagon's new intelligence chief is rolling back some of former Defense Secretary Donald H. Rumsfeld's controversial policies, which expanded the Pentagon's spy operations and worked independently of other intelligence agencies, current and former officials said. Retired Lt. Gen. James R. Clapper Jr. is aligning the Pentagon's intelligence initiatives with those of the director of national intelligence, John M. McConnell, and will begin to count McConnell as his boss - a significant shift from the autonomy the office enjoyed under Rumsfeld.

WASHINGTON - Journey Thwreatt may have slept through most of the day, carried slowly closer to the U.S. Capitol from sunup to well past sundown, but her mother wouldn't have had it any other way. Crystal Thwreatt, 24, gave up her seat on a flight home to Georgia so she could spend a few seconds yesterday cradling her year-old daughter over the flag-draped coffin of former President Ronald Reagan. "What matters most of all to me that she'll be able to say that she was here," said Thwreatt, an advocate for abused children in suburban Atlanta.
