Selling drugs, buying drugs and homicides are things Baltimore City residents deal with every day. John W. Schissler decided not to deal with it any more ("Longtime homeowner fights against drugs," May 19). Mr. Schissler, 76, spends his retirement confronting the suspected drug dealers on his street and nearby. I agree with his reasoning to do so because I see the drug problem in my neighborhood too, although, he could be putting his life at risk. Confronting the suspected drug dealers and buyers could help stop and drug interactions.

The stunning vote in the House of Representatives early today, which rejected the bipartisan budget agreement, essentially means that the politics of confrontation have prevailed over the politics of compromise.The defeat of the deficit-reduction package is largely a result of the mischievous handiwork of that most confrontational of politicians, Georgia's Rep. Newt Gingrich. Once it became clear that Gingrich was going to lead a majority of Republicans in repudiation of their president, Democrats would have been fools to vote for the deficit-reduction package.

WASHINGTON -- For Iraqi President Saddam Hussein and the United States, the latest confrontation appears to be one both sides wanted. And after six months of tension, it was virtually unavoidable.As Mr. Saddam begins a third bitter winter of economic sanctions and political isolation, he hopes to bolster his standing at home with a foreign crisis that would divert attention from the hardships of rationed food and fuel.The Iraqi leader apparently is calculating that an allied air strike is a tolerable price to pay to show that he can still defy the West and stay in power.

NAACP director Benjamin F. Chavis appears determined to make economic empowerment the Baltimore-based organization's top priority.Since assuming the helm of the nation's oldest civil rights group earlier this year, Mr. Chavis has steadily steered the NAACP away from its traditional strategy of using legal challenges through the courts to address the problems of black America. Instead he seems intent on confronting corporate America head-on through activist measures such as the "Fair Share" agreements.

Monrovia, Liberia - We sat in a waiting room of a health clinic here, talking about our fears. As a midwifery and nursing educator working in Liberia for Jhpiego, a Johns Hopkins University affiliate, I had been asked to help update health workers on the critical skills and interventions essential to managing Ebola cases. I was prepared to talk about the disease - what it is, how to care for patients and how to prevent it from spreading. But before I could do that, I knew we had to talk about how terrifying the job is. A nurse sitting across from me spoke candidly about his first experience with an Ebola patient - he didn't want to have any physical contact with the person, he was so terrified.

A Houston-based company asked Maryland for a permit to ship millions of gallons of crude oil through its South Baltimore marine terminal as the nation's oil industry surges. Another company in the Fairfield industrial area began moving crude oil in recent years from tank cars hauled by locomotives onto barges for shipment to refineries or asphalt plants. While the boom in U.S. crude oil production is helping to reduce the nation's dependence on imports, the rapidly expanding domestic transport of crude by rail and barge is raising concerns after several derailments and explosions and a barge accident that spilled crude into the Mississippi River.

Manny Machado wasn't happy with the way Oakland Athletics third baseman Josh Donaldson tagged him to end the third inning in the Orioles' 4-3 loss Friday night. Why, exactly? He wouldn't specify. “He made the right play, but [I] just didn't agree on the tag that he made on me, and I just had to get up and confront him,” Machado said after the game. “You get in the heat of the moment and things start flying. It's part of the game, and you're going to have to continue.” With two outs and Machado running on contact from second base, Donaldson fielded a soft ground ball near third and waited in his base path.
