CBS sent along Randy Cross' thoughts at approximately the halfway point of the NFL season. Here's what he had to say about the Ravens: "If this defense can hold up for another 10 games, the Ravens stay in the hunt, but a couple of injuries and 2008 could get real long, real quick." (Either they asked him before the Ravens played their seventh game or he has them going to at least one playoff game.) (For more, go to baltimoresun.com/mediumwell)

TWO RECENT incidents in Fairfax County in Northern Virginia illustrate the growing problem Americans have talking about race, especially to young people.The first incident involved a fund-raiser held by some fraternities and sororities at George Mason University. The event was a "Dress a Sig" contest, in which women from six fraternities dressed members of the fraternity Sigma Chi up as women. A woman from the Gamma Phi Beta sorority dressed up one male student in a blouse, a wig, a pillow strapped to his rear end -- and made him up in blackface.

OUR SEMI-RURAL community is dotted with white crosses bearing silent testimony to the treachery of small country roads. Down by the lake there's a white cross, a mile or so up the road there's another one. Now there's a new one in front of our house. It was the usual story: a summer night, young men speeding, alcohol. An eyewitness said the car turned over three times. A 17-year-old died, another was in critical condition for a while. The third -- the driver -- was less seriously injured.
