You know how they say there's no crying in baseball? Apparently they haven't gotten that  message at the London Olympics. Have you ever seen so much blubbering in your life? These athletes cry tears of joy when they win. They cry tears of sorrow when they lose. They cry tears of frustration when they go on morning talk shows to talk about how upset they are about what's being written about them. (Yes, Lolo Jones, we're talking about you. Although if I were you, I'd probably cry, too. More on that in a minute.)

Matt and Wendy McDermott thought they had planned the perfect surprise for their five-year-old son, Ferris.  Rather than drive Ferris to preschool on Friday, the Baltimore couple drove him to the airport. Then, as Matt filmed the scene in the parking lot, Wendy told Ferris the big news: They were going to Disney World. Except Ferris' reaction wasn't exactly what his parents had expected. "Nooooooooooo," cried Ferris, hiding his head on his mother's shoulder. She tried to remind him that there's a castle in Disney World, but Ferris just wept harder.

Our enemies have gone underground, no state, no nation, no identity. They clobber our soldiers with roadside bombs. Then they seek protection under international law or U.S. law I think most Americans agree that once we establish the identity of the enemy, it is our right to eliminate the threat ("A legitimate target?" Oct. 3). There may be some innocent bystanders. Maybe they should keep better company. Maybe they should consider working with peace loving people to eliminate these terrorists.

For years, Silks was a mysterious eyesore in Canton. In 2009, Midnight Sun contributor Evan Siple painted an unusual picture of a previous visit. While Silks appeared to be a sports bar from the exterior, the inside was an “extension of the owner's house.” The main door was locked, stacks of mail were scattered and the owner wore pajama pants and slippers behind the bar. A friend in search of a bathroom mistakenly entered a living room. The writer's verdict? Silks, seemingly a semi-private hangout, was “crazier than crazy.” Unsurprisingly, that business plan did not last.

RECENTLY, I read where Jackie Kennedy used to periodically go out onto a friend's boat to grieve over President Kennedy's death. She waited until she was far out to sea, looked out over the vast ocean and wept over how much she missed him, according to this account.By the time I finished reading the article, I, too, was crying.How sad to have to hide your tears. Any kind of tears. Tears over sorrow, loss and grief. Tears over beauty, joy and wonder.When President Kennedy died, the nuns at my Catholic grade school held up Jackie as a pillar of strength for not shedding a tear in public.

I heard his voice on the telephone, a nervous sigh that became a whimper that became a full-fledged, gasping sob. I had never heard my good friend Louie cry before. Honest. I thought back to the weddings and funerals we'd attended together - prime time for even male tears - and could not recall Louie crying. Not like that. It frightened me. "Cancer," he said in a quivering, almost breathless whisper because his wife was in the next room and she did not know yet.That was two years ago. Louie is still with us. He's been tough about the cancer, following doctor's orders with an Olympian's discipline.

The residents of Gulfport, Miss., picked through the wreckage of their city in silence. They climbed over stacks of splintered lumber and shattered furniture, scraped soggy paper and housing insulation off their shoes, and wandered across a sunlit waterfront none of them recognized. The scene was as solemn as a funeral service until from a far corner of the city's shipping terminal, a cry for help rang out Tuesday. About a dozen people ran toward the wailing, seeking its source. Then they found it: an adult sea lion, escaped from the city's ruined aquarium, nestled against an overturned tractor near a bubbling sewer drain.

Beauty always comes at a price. Case in point: Ubisoft's new PC title, Far Cry ($39; suitable for ages 17 and older). This first-person shooter is set on a lush, tropical island, and you play as mercenary-turned-ferryman Jack Carver. But a gang of armed thugs has blown up your boat and kidnapped your latest passenger. After washing ashore, you go exploring, with guns blazing. But your first impulse in this game isn't to shoot. It's to gawk at the stupendous graphics. Every fern, palm tree, sandy beach, tropical fish and rocky mountain is exquisitely rendered.

I have seen in The Sun several times lately stories about the hard times the poor federal employees are having ( "Half of federal employees considering leaving for the private sector, survey finds," Feb. 21). Let me tell you that they are some of the most cared for government employees of any type. Maryland is supposed to be the richest state with annual personal income of about $78,000 per household, according to the newspaper. Those annual salaries are a direct result of those federal workers who reside in Maryland, not the rest of us. I don't know anyone who makes that kind of money.

When the rent or the price of tomatoes goes up, business owners either absorb the increase or pass it on to their customers. If that item causes the business to close, you can be sure that other problems exist. However, if there is a suggestion of an increase in the minimum wage, we are deluged by promises that it will cause vast unemployment and rampant business closures ("O'Malley backs indexing of minimum wage," Jan. 8). But here's the rub. It's hard to find good tomatoes but easy to find desperate people who will work for low wages.

It is fact that the financial downturn of recent years has impacted many people in and out of government. Many individuals' incomes have been dramatically (and, in many cases permanently) affected by general economic conditions - cutbacks, downsizing, business failures, etc. It appears that this situation, though unfortunate, is the result of the decision makers compressing the required furloughs into a short period of time ("Sequester pain hits home," July 12).Yes, it results in a 20 percent pay cut, but for 11 weeks, not 52 weeks.

Maybe I took those high school civics classes too seriously, but isn't there something wrong when the running for and holding of political office is indistinguishable from the kind of reality shows that you hate-watch? To wit: the tabloid heaven that is the New York election season. First came Anthony Weiner, the former congressman with the all too Dickensian name, returning from his sexting scandal to run for mayor. As if that wasn't gift enough for the writers of the late-night show monologues, along comes former Gov. Eliot Spitzer escaping his call-girl past to run for comptroller.

Another innocent child murdered in Baltimore is a crying shame. Baltimore came in fifth place nationally for its high murder rate. Maryland came in fourth place among the 50 states for the number of police officers killed (six) in the line of duty. Getting tough on second-offenders leaves innocent children and adults in more dangerous crossfire between criminals. If you chose to intentionally shoot another person, then you should expect the consequence is to spend a very long time in jail.

With a flick of his wrist, a U.S. Naval Academy baseball player from Orlando, Fla., tossed an upperclassman's hat atop the Herndon Monument on Monday, leading his 2016 classmates to launch into cheers of "Plebes no more!" amid roars from onlookers. "I was considering jumping and making it a little more dramatic," said Patrick Lien - who is a catcher, not pitcher, on the Navy team, "but I didn't want to fall and make a scene. " The Herndon climb was itself a scene: hundreds of plebes, or freshmen, charged a slickened, 21-foot tall granite obelisk at the service academy in Annapolis.

You don't hear the phrase the "man of the family" anymore. It's gone the way of Girl Friday and other remnants of a bygone, politically incorrect era. You remember the movies, though, of that time. The father is going off to war. Or, sometimes, he has a dread disease against which he has fought a valiant and yet inevitably unsuccessful fight.Anyway, it's your basic departure scene. Dad calls in the male child, cues the music and intones, "Son, you're going to have to be the man of the family now."

Susan Reimer 's commentary touched on an issue that has bothered me for years ("Babies on a plane: Can the rest of the flying public cut mom some slack?" April 4). As an executive, I have been required to travel by plane on business for well over 30 years. I fly about once a month and often more than that. As a result, I have been held captive many times to crying, screaming infants or toddlers who keep it up for most if not the entire duration of the flight. Somehow, this just doesn't seem fair.

This is cracking me up. A father has started a Tumblr collection of photos of his toddler crying with captions that explain why he's crying. My two favorites so far: "He asked me to put butter on his rice. I put butter on his rice," and "I wouldn't let him drown in this pond. " Check out more here: http://reasonsmysoniscrying.tumblr.com/
