In her letter ("A Catholic for equality" September 29), Erma Durkin seems to be a devout Catholic and loves her gay son, but her conclusions are wrong. She wants her son's partnership to be elevated to the status of the traditional marriage and change the definition of marriage. Marriage is between a man and a woman; not a man and a man or a woman and a woman. Gays should be treated fairly and be able to go to the courthouse and get a civil union certificate that would give them all the legal protections they want.

I was surprised to see in Tim Wheeler 's report on the latest Cove Point permit ( "State gives gas export facility go-ahead," July 23) that Gov. Martin O'Malley has decided that fracked gas is a bridge fuel and that fracking can be done safely if the government sets the "highest and best" standards. How has the governor reached that conclusion before having seen the report from his own Marcellus Shale advisory commission? His 2011 executive order instructed the panel to determine whether and how fracking could be done without unacceptable risks to health, safety and the environment.

WASHINGTON - The former chief U.S. weapons inspector in Iraq blamed faulty intelligence work for the Bush administration concluding, erroneously in the inspector's view, that Saddam Hussein had stockpiled weapons of mass destruction. "It turns out we were all wrong," outgoing inspector David Kay told the Senate Armed Services Committee yesterday. "And that is most disturbing. ... We have to understand why reality turned out to be different than expectations and estimates." Not only have no large stockpiles of banned weapons been found, he said, but no evidence was found of smaller caches.

Can we please stop holding the country hostage to crazy people? Every year a tiny number of mentally ill people go on horrific killing sprees. It just happened in California. I won't name the person because I think the media attention lavished on these horror shows encourages some of these young men -- and they are almost all young men -- to seek fame or validation through bloodshed. In an entirely human response, we get spun up into a frenzy of finger-pointing. In the aftermath of the Gabby Giffords shooting, many of the country's leading journalists and politicians suggested the former congresswoman was shot because of the "violent" political rhetoric of Sarah Palin, Rep. Michele Bachmann and other tea party-affiliated politicians.

Baltimore has proved a pipe dream come true to almost 300 organ fanciers from all over the United States and Europe this week.Starting last Sunday and concluding tomorrow, Baltimore and its environs have played host to the annual convention of the Organ Historical Society. Members have visited 36 organs, most of which were built in the 19th century, and gathered each evening for recitals.Baltimore has been host to this convention twice before, in 1958 and 1971. The reason is simply that the city was -- after New York and Boston -- one of the great organ building centers in the United States in the 19th century.

One of last season's strongest episodes of the woefully underappreciated "Law & Order" (10 p.m.-11 p.m., WBAL, Channel 11) gets a repeat airing on NBC tonight.Sam Waterston shines in the conclusion of a three-parter that had the detectives and prosecutors scurrying between the East and West Coasts to find the killer of a female movie executive whose body is fished out of a New York river.Tonight's conclusion offers Waterston plenty of chances to bemoan the media circus the trial has become (any similarities to the O. J. case are purely intentional)

NEW YORK -- Bleach is not nearly as effective in killing the AIDS virus on shared needles as drug addicts have been taught, federal researchers have decided.And for the first time, federal officials suggest that addicts should have easier access to clean needles over the counter or in needle exchanges, said Dr. Harry Haverkos of the National Institute on Drug Abuse.The conclusion -- reached in February but just now making its way to many front-line groups who work with addicts -- is a blow to conventional AIDS outreach among drug users and a boost for more controversial efforts to provide new, sterile needles.

Contrary to published reports, an ABC spokesman sai yesterday it has not yet given the green light to a two-hour "thirtysomething" television movie that will bring the abruptly canceled series to a more satisfactory conclusion. The network issued a statement that said it still was in discussions with series producer MGM/UA Television concerning a possible "thirtysomething" movie, but ABC's Jim Brochu said he didn't expect a decision for at least a few days.

It's not every day that a law professor has his book quoted by the Supreme Court, and so the University of Baltimore's Michael I. Meyerson was understandably intrigued when his 2012 work about the Framers' views on religion made it into Monday's decision on public prayer. But the plug from Justice Anthony M. Kennedy, who wrote the majority opinion, was somewhat bittersweet. Meyerson says the decision misread the point of his book and took the quote out of context in a way that allowed the justices to draw an entirely different conclusion about how the Founding Fathers approached religion in public.

Fire investigators found cigarettes and a lighter in the hospital bed of a man who died in a fire at University of Maryland Medical Center, but the cause of the fire has not been conclusively determined, a report of the incident shows. The report provides the first information released in the Nov. 8 death of William Turner, 53, at the downtown Baltimore hospital. An autopsy earlier determined that Turner died of smoke inhalation and burns that caused complications to his underlying hypertensive cardiovascular disease.

In the days and weeks after the Boston Marathon bombings, the National Rifle Association has repeatedly stated that many Bostonians who did not possess guns probably wished that they had them in their homes during the tense "shelter in place" manhunt. That statement is in large part a straw-man argument. Much of what occurred during those unfortunate days disproves the NRA's usual narrative about guns and public safety. Let's begin with the obvious: Had everyone in Boston been armed the day of the bombings, the bombings would have still occurred.

As I assessed the situation at the Baltimore City jail, and the subsequent indictments that came down because of the corruption of a few, I realized that while the rosy portrait painted by Gov. Martin O'Malley may not have been as bright as he would have liked the public to believe, it certainly was nowhere near as gloomy as your recent editorial portrayed it ("O'Malley can't spin his way out of the jail scandal," April 30). It's easy to point the finger after the hard work has been done; as they say, "hindsight is 20/20.

President Barack Obama could have stayed out of the case against California's ban on gay marriage, known as Proposition 8. The federal government isn't a party to the case, and Mr. Obama could have hidden behind the precedent of previous administrations that declined to get involved in similar suits, like those that struck down bans on interracial marriage or laws criminalizing homosexual conduct. But instead, Mr. Obama's self-described "evolution" on the issue continued this week with a brief arguing that no compelling public interest is served by treating same-sex couples differently from opposite-sex ones.

I read with great interest your article Jan. 31 about Laurel's first bank robbery by John Morgan. Sadly, this was not our last bank robbery and just as sadly, not the last 19-year-old to go to prison from our county. A quick review by the state archivist, Dr. Edwin Papenfuse, brings us the "rest of the story. " (By the way, if every part of government was as efficient or accommodating as the state archives, there would not be much to complain about.) The Hon. Chief Judge John P. Briscoe of our Circuit Court sentenced Morgan to five years in the state penitentiary, notwithstanding the recommendation for leniency by the bank president, Charles H. Stanley Sr. Several months later, Morgan's sister Gertrude, who was a nurse at St. Joseph's Hospital, applied to the governor to pardon her brother.

1491: New Revelations of the Americas before Columbus By Charles C. Mann Before 1491, the Americas were a far more urban, more populated and more technologically advanced region than generally assumed; and the Indians, rather than living in static harmony with nature, radically engineered the landscape across the continents, to the point that even "timeless" natural features like the Amazon rainforest can be seen as products of human intervention....

The conclusion of two long, expensive trials is that neither Bobbitt is guilty of anything and government ought not concern itself with what happens in the bedrooms of America.You can tell Bobby Inman is some kind of nut because he was comfortable with Bill's presidency, and no credible candidate for Sec'y of Defense is.FEMA is getting the checks to Los Angeles in record time.

Members of the National Rifle Association and other pro-gun groups are determined to stop any and all gun control laws. They fear the government will attempt to confiscate their weapons, and they are desperate to hold on to them. Why? These people generally do not live in crime-infested urban neighborhoods. They don't need their guns to protect themselves from armed criminals - no, they need them to protect themselves from the government. They think gun-control is the first step to dictatorship.
