Maryland needs to move forward quickly on new legislation to support mental health initiatives ( "Legislation pushes involuntary mental health treatment," March 10). Many parents are in a crisis mode when their children develop a mental illness and have limited resources from state to assist in treatments. The result often ends with the child becoming gravely ill and unable to function in society - thus becoming a burden on the parents as well as the state. In many cases, the child ends up in jail or is involved in serious criminal situations.

In considering his American League Division Series roster, Orioles manager Buck Showalter said this weekend in Toronto that his biggest decision was whether he would carry 10 or 11 pitchers in the best-of-five series against the Detroit Tigers. He decided on the latter and opted to make that 11th pitcher right-hander Ubaldo Jimenez . To call Jimenez's first season in Baltimore inconsistent might be kind. He's been on a roller coaster that included a second-half demotion to the bullpen.

As the leaders of Powerupmontco and Reliability4HOCO, two non-partisan electric utility consumer advocacy groups, we were frustrated with your recent editorial critical of gubernatorial candidate Heather Mizeur's electric utilities reform proposal ( "Short circuit," May 19). For nearly a decade, Pepco and BGE's electric utility monopolies have failed to adequately invest in their distribution systems. As a result of years of imprudent management by these utilities, ratepayers are forced to live with bottom-level power reliability ratings, "blue sky outages" and contact voltage hazards.

Tyrod Taylor has manned the clipboard on the sideline for three years, living the life of a backup quarterback while Joe Flacco has orchestrated the Ravens' offense. Flacco has been remarkably durable and never missed a start in his six seasons despite a sprained medial collateral ligament, a hip contusion and minor ankle and knee injuries. The Ravens have never had to experience life without Flacco during the regular season or playoffs. And Taylor has never truly been put to the test of running the offense in a critical situation.

The Orioles wouldn't say it, but they're probably glad they won't see the Tampa Bay Rays again until mid-August. They were able to salvage one win in their trip to the Trop, but since taking two of three in Tampa Bay in the opening series of the season, the Rays have been tough on the Orioles. We're reminded very quickly why Tampa Bay was picked by many to win the American League East. Their ability to control games with their pitching might make them the most dangerous team in baseball when everything is clicking.

Unlike previous seasons, the Ravens have been proficient in striking it rich on big plays, recording seven of their 28 touchdowns from 20 yards or beyond. That kind of production may be necessary when they visit the Cleveland Browns on Sunday. Cleveland boasts one of the NFL's stingiest defenses inside the 20-yard line, ranking seventh after surrendering just 13 touchdowns on 32 trips (40.6 percent) to the red zone by opponents. Conversely, the Ravens have struggled at times in the red zone, ranking 21st after scoring 17 touchdowns on 36 attempts (47.2 percent)

In a game filled with unexpected and dramatic twists, Ravens cornerback Josh Wilson acknowledged that he was more shocked than anyone else at the end in Reliant Stadium. Wilson's 12-yard interception return for a touchdown in overtime lifted the Ravens to a 34-28 victory, rescuing them from a monumental fourth-quarter collapse and keeping them in a commanding position in the AFC playoff race. An announced crowd of 71,113 was stunned when the Ravens rolled out to a 28-7 lead when rookie David Reed returned the opening kickoff of the second half 103 yards for a touchdown.

- On a day when the Ravens could have laid claim to being the best team in the NFL, they let the opportunity - and the ball - slip through their grasp. Wide receiver Mark Clayton's dropped fourth-down pass at the New England 8-yard line ended the Ravens' last-minute comeback bid in a 27-21 loss to the Patriots and finished off a mistake-filled game for the NFL's second-ranked offense. "It was a perfect ball. I dropped it," Clayton said after the Ravens came up 14 yards short of the end zone.

Each week, we've brought you a Q&A with a Ravens player to help you learn a little more about the team. Today is a little different. The guest is offensive coordinator Cam Cameron, who has guided the offense to 12th in the NFL in average yards gained. Cameron reflected on life as an offensive coordinator, the process of crafting the weekly game plan, and the impact of other coaches on him. Question: What's the most difficult part about being the offensive coordinator? Answer: I never looked at anything being real difficult other than going against great defensive coordinators and veteran defensive players.

WASHINGTON - At a time when the FBI insists it has transformed itself into an agile force able to blunt the threat of terrorism, the agency is stuck in a bureaucratic quagmire that has left dozens of key posts vacant and more than a hundred agents with little authority in senior supervisory positions. At stake, agents and bureau managers say, is the FBI's ability to fight the war on terrorism without becoming sidelined by the kind of bureaucratic problems that have dogged the agency for a decade.
