"We got him, justice is done. " Really? We seem to be overjoyed by the idea that Osama bin Laden's death is some sort of compensation for all the suffering and lives he annihilated. I suppose it's human nature that revenge is a joy. But now our revenge must be avenged. Perhaps our joy should just be geared to the fact that at least bin Laden will no longer plan additional harm.

The lights are low and the bass is thumping, but the cycle room at Rev Cycle Studio in McHenry Row is no dance club. Halfway into the studio's Rev60 Zen class -- a “fusion” of 40 minutes of cycling and 20 of yoga -- a dozen cyclists are pedaling (and sweating) hard, following instructor Esther Collinetti's demands to go harder. Fast-forward another 15 minutes. The same group is now quietly sinking into Warrior pose in the studio's small, warm yoga room, with Collinetti directing stretches and meditation.

In the words of Ronald Reagan, "there he goes again. " Lying that is. AndRobert L. Ehrlich Jr.is the fellow doing it.

For far too many young people who get caught up in the criminal justice system, an arrest or conviction for even a minor, non-violent offense can become a one-way ticket to a shrunken future that slams the door on opportunities for the rest of their lives. Being arrested as a teen increases a person's chances of being arrested again as an adult, and teenagers sentenced to jail are more likely to be incarcerated later in life as well. Add to that the nation's harsh drug laws and stiff mandatory minimum sentencing policies and it's no wonder America locks up more of its citizens than any other country in the world.

Regarding your recent editorial advocating holding city elections on the presidential cycle, it doesn't make sense to only partially correct a situation that everyone agrees needs to be fixed ("Straightening out city elections," July 6). None of Baltimore's elected officials met with their constituents to discuss this election-cycle issue before they selfishly voted their preferences. The arguments for moving city elections to the gubernatorial cycle significantly outweigh the arguments our elected officials voted to help themselves.

What's the connection between the two random assaults at the Inner Harbor on July 4? It's called "the cycle of violence. " We have one victim, an adult, who "re-engaged" the suspect after a first fight, instead of walking away. And an acquaintance laments that the suspect used a broken bottle "instead of his fists like a real man. " Then we have a second victim, a 4-year-old boy, who says he wants to "punch [the perpetrator] in the face" — that is, to re-engage ("Child shot at harbor rebounding quickly," July 7)

On Sept. 12, 2001, I wrote a letter to The Sun hoping (praying) that my nation would respond to the Sept. 11 attacks with swift justice rather than protracted war; that we would thoughtfully and strategically aim to increase peace rather than compound violence. We've been warring for 10 years now, and at such cost of lives and treasure - over 5,000 American soldiers and many, many times that in civilian deaths and hundreds of billions of dollars. True, we finally found and killed the mastermind, but didn't his only real power come from our irrational and disproportionate reaction?

Manny Machado, the Orioles organization's top position-player prospect, hit for the cycle Saturday for Double-A Bowie in an 8-7 win over Trenton. Machado, ranked the 11 th best prospect in baseball by Baseball America, completed the feat with a game-winning, two-run homer to left in the eighth inning. The 20-year-old Machado was 4-for-4 with three RBIs and three runs scored on the night. His third-inning double scored Rhyne Hughes from second. Machado, the third overall pick in the 2010 MLB Draft out of Miami Brito Private, is hitting .262 with 26 doubles, four triples, 10 homers and 57 RBIs this season.

Baltimore is one of a few jurisdictions in the entire country, not to mention within the state of Maryland, that has a separate mayoral election where only four positions are voted for. Those positions are mayor, city council president, comptroller and city council member. What a significant waste of time, money and manpower. Baltimore should combine its mayoral primary and general elections with either the presidential election or, preferably, the gubernatorial election. There would be significant savings of money and, as demonstrated several years ago when Barack Obama was elected, an increase in the dismal voter turnout that we are experiencing.

BOSTON - Midway through the nightcap of their twin bill against the Red Sox on Saturday, the Orioles were in danger of dropping the doubleheader and losing their hold on first place in the American League East. But after a 7-4 win over the Red Sox in which the Orioles came from behind to score five unanswered runs and shut down Boston with 5 1/3 strong innings from the bullpen, the music blasted inside the visiting clubhouse at Fenway Park. Earning a split of their day-night doubleheader was, in a way, a victory.

Michael Pecht feels like Sherlock Holmes sometimes, and not just because he plays violin on the side. He's a reliability engineer by trade. He runs a 120-person team at the University of Maryland, where the workload includes digging into the mystery of why complex electronics don't work properly. "We get some new problem all the time," he said. "It's just really fascinating. " Pecht, who founded the Center for Advanced Life Cycle Engineering in 1986 and has run it since, was a consultant to Congress during the investigation of reports of sudden acceleration in Toyota vehicles, and more recently for the General Motors ignition-switch recall.

I read with interest recent articles about gun violence ( "After the gunfire, shoppers and workers confront emotional toll," Feb. 1). As our service men and woman return from war, we have documented psychological trauma-related injuries, specifically post traumatic stress disorder, depression, anxiety, mood swings, aggressive behaviors, rages and suicides. Children and families living day in and day out in communities with high crime rates are witnessing or being victimized by the physical and psychological traumas of their neighborhoods, which include gunshot injuries, death, bullying, assaults, threats, rape, robberies armed and non-armed, and forced membership in gangs.

Each week, when the weather allows, Jon Korin hops on his road bike and pedals far enough for a three-day tally that cyclists call a century ride — 100 miles. This year, the retired Severna Park resident who grew up riding his bike to school reached another cycling goal: He joined with Anne Arundel cyclists to launch the county's first bicycling advocacy group. Korin, 59, is president of Bicycle Advocates for Annapolis and Anne Arundel County (BikeAAA), which began in March as a project for Leadership Anne Arundel, a nonprofit that gathers residents for community service and outreach.

Baltimore Police Commissioner Anthony Batts' long-awaited consultant's report on how to reshape his department and drive down crime comes to what sounds like an obvious conclusion: The city's police should focus on gangs, guns and violent repeat offenders. The 200-page document underscores the extent to which that is easier said than done - it includes dozens of recommendations for changing the department's structure, procedures and use of technology. But at its heart, it tells us what we already knew - that gun crimes are the city's most pressing concern and that focused efforts by the police can help drive them down.

Tiger Woods has been compared with other great golfers, legends like Jack Nicklaus and even Bobby Jones dating back to Woods' days as an amateur. He has even been compared with other great athletes who dominated their sport, like Michael Jordanand Roger Federer. As he settles into his athletic middle age, others are now compared to Woods. During his press conference Tuesday in advance of this week's AT&T National tournament at the Congressional Country Club in Bethesda, where he will play the dual role as host and favorite once again, Woods was asked about the similarities between the scrutiny he has received over the years with what LeBron James had gone through until finally winning his first NBA championship last week.

Anne Arundel County police said officers arrested three teenage boys in connection with a Friday night burglary at a motorbike store. All three, who were identified as being from Baltimore, face juvenile burglary and malicious destruction charges. One, who is 14, was also cited for theft.
