Regarding the Ray Rice scandal, Ravens president Dick Cass said in the team's rebuttal to an ESPN article critical of the team that he "did not think that pretrial intervention would prevent the [second] video from becoming public. I assumed that would eventually occur in any event" ( "Steve Bisciotti, Ravens issue rebuttal to ESPN report," Sept. 22). Yet he says he declined to request a copy of the second video, which shows Mr. Rice punching his then-fiancee, Janay Palmer. Let's think about this: The president of an NFL franchise knows there's an incendiary video out there that could very well embroil his franchise in a firestorm.

REYKJAVIK, Iceland - More than 50 years after its founding and a decade after the end of the Cold War, the North Atlantic Treaty Organization approved yesterday a landmark agreement accepting Russia, the former enemy it was formed to fight, into a new partnership with the West on terrorism, arms control and international crisis management in a post-Sept. 11 world. "Together, the countries that spent four decades glowering at each other across the wall of hatred and fear now have the opportunity to transform Euro-Atlantic security for the better," said NATO's secretary-general, George Robertson, at a meeting of foreign ministers here.

New NBA commissioner Adam Silver apparently is not one to waste words, or the opportunity to show who's boss. He certainly wasted no time upending all the experts and legal analysts who were predicting that he would take a measured approach to punishing Los Angeles Clippers owner Donald Sterling for the caught-on-tape comments about African Americans that sparked a painful new national debate on race in America. Silver walked up to that podium in midtown Manhattan on Tuesday afternoon and needed just a couple of minutes to express the NBA's righteous outrage and say that he was banning Sterling from the league for life while initiating a process that he believes will compel Sterling to sell his team.

After reading the article about the fuzzy kind of transparency practiced by the Obama administration, I was struck by the fact that the gist seemed to be more about crisis management and the "narrative" ("A fuzzy kind of transparency at White House," May 29). How about letting us know what really happened? We really must know where the president was during the attack on Benghazi. We really must know why Lois "I'm not guilty and, oh, by the way I take the Fifth" Learner is still earning a very large salary.

Wendy's International Inc. said yesterday that it will focus on rebuilding its reputation after a San Jose, Calif., woman who claimed she found a fingertip in a bowl of chili she ordered has been charged with attempted theft. But one crisis management expert said he believed that the fast food chain was doing too little to heal its reputation. The Columbus, Ohio-based hamburger chain said it was "thrilled" and "vindicated that an arrest had been made." Las Vegas police were holding 39-year-old Anna Ayala without bail pending an extradition hearing Tuesday on a charge of attempted grand larceny.

John F. Kennedy rightly said "the human mind is our fundamental resource. " It takes people with right thinking in government to eliminate deficits, reduce the national debt and restore confidence in leadership. I salute Maryland Rep. Andy Harris for his vote against another debt ceiling increase ( "In blue Maryland, Andy Harris proudly stands on the right," Oct. 20). Mr. Harris' vote was a much-needed slap in the face to a convoluted Democrat playbook of dispensing with the annual budget process in order to hide their policy goals.

It began as an observation that inflamed academicians worldwide. It's morphed into a test case for experts in corporate damage control.

Dave Jones is trying to shrink the world, one crisis at a time. The former TV weatherman wants emergency managers and decision-makers to have simultaneous access to real-time information so they can keep people out of harm's way. And he wants them to be able to swap ideas whether they are standing before a big screen in a command center, hunched over a laptop in a shelter or grasping a tablet while hovering over the scene in a rescue helicopter....

T he Toyota problem: Where the car giant went wrong During the past few decades, Toyota has built a strong presence in the United States by serving its consumers well and doing what the U.S. government has wanted. Now, it has stumbled badly, largely because its greatest strength - the Toyota way of "accumulation of small improvements," or kaizen philosophy - has turned out to be a weakness in the age of complex electronic engines. There is every reason to believe Toyota will fix its technical and management problems.

Declaring and debunking crises has become a subsidiary industry of the gender wars. The latest to roll off the D&D assembly line is a study from the American Association of University Women (AAUW) that purports to debunk the idea of a "boys crisis," which followed closely on the heels of a purported "girls crisis." Boys are doing just fine, say the AAUW authors, who also insist that the boy crisis was a fabrication of people who are uncomfortable with the progress of girls and women. The authors also assert that girls' development hasn't come at the expense of boys, as some allegedly claim.
