Dallas -- I'D FORGOTTEN what a many-splendored thing it is to spend time with Ross Perot.That barbed-wire yapping. That wet-otter hair. Those endless renditions of "Anchors Away." Those terrifying pop quizzes."How many people in this audience know who Jack Kirby is?" Perot barked at the United We Stand members gathered in a half-empty convention hall. Getting no reply, he planted hands on hips. "Isn't that interesting?" he droned, before instructing: "He is the man that holds the basic patent on the integrated circuit, and without that integrated circuit there would be no space program, no stationed satellites."

"This is not West Africa," Texas health commissioner Dr. David Lakey said Wednesday at a news conference designed to dispel Texans' (and Americans') fear of an Ebola outbreak after a man there was diagnosed with the disease. "This is a very sophisticated city, a very sophisticated hospital. " The subtext: All those gruesome photos you're seeing of people dying in the streets in West Africa — that's something that happens over there, to other people, not here, not to us. But what the events of the last few days have shown is that it's exactly that kind of hubris that puts us most at risk, and that for all the sophistication of the U.S. health system, it only takes a simple lapse to create the conditions for a broader outbreak.

Maryland public health officials are putting caregivers - from Baltimore's major teaching hospitals to strip-mall urgent care centers to ambulances - on heightened alert for signs of Ebola as details emerge about missteps in Dallas, where a man with the deadly virus was initially sent home from a hospital. Health care providers have for months been preparing for Ebola's potential arrival in the U.S., and on Tuesday confirmed a Liberian man visiting family in Dallas had the virus.

Still, the show will not be soon forgotten, for in its tenure, "Dallas" defined the culture and thus redefined us."Dallas" deserves a significant place in any history of television.

The "Who Shot J.R.?" episode of 1980 is the second-highest-rated show in TV history.The show also made good despite violating several shibboleths about what makes a successful television series.

Weeks after falling awkwardly against the Dallas Cowboys and coughing up blood, Ravens starting cornerback Jimmy Smith proclaimed that he's made a full recovery. Smith suffered a chest contusion against the Cowboys and also had lung issues, but has been practicing since last week and says he's on track to play Sunday against the Cincinnati Bengals at M&T Bank Stadium. Smith said he won't need any extra padding to protect his chest. "I'm absolutely fine," said Smith, who's not listed on the first injury report released Wednesday.

Contrary to letter writer Marilyn Pettiway's claim that the media's coverage of Baltimore County School Supt. Dallas Dance has been unfair, The Sun and other outlets not only have reported fairly but have conscientiously followed Mr. Dance's outrageous actions that have cause havoc in every corner of Baltimore County over the last year ( "Stop beating up on county school superintendent Dallas Dance Aug. 25). In November, when the parents of Hereford High School sought to keep in place a schedule that has had proven success for 22 years and which was not only in place at Hereford but several other county schools as well, they contacted state Sen. James Brochin and Del. Wade Kach to assist parents in their efforts when Mr. Dance refused to meet with them.

I've been an avid reader of The Sun, but if the paper wants to be a credible publication it has to be fair in its criticism of Baltimore County School Supt. Dallas Dance ( "Balto. Co. schools' song and dance," Aug. 19). I have two grandkids in the county schools, and they are excited to be there because of Mr. Dance, whom they know by name. Yet every time I pick up the paper, The Sun says he has critics, and they're always the same people: Jim Brochin, Mike Collins and Pat McDonough.

ARLINGTON, Texas - Before they left the visiting locker room at AT&T Stadium late Saturday night, the Ravens defense had reached a consensus in their evaluation of what had transpired over the previous three hours. The defenders believed that they had done some good things, but they also recognized that their play was nowhere near good enough. From missed tackles to blown assignments to costly penalties, the Ravens defense exited the 37-30 victory over the Dallas Cowboys with plenty to work on and yet another key injury to their secondary.

Coach John Harbaugh said Thursday that he expects to play his starters for about a quarter on Saturday in Dallas, when the Ravens play the Cowboys in the second of four preseason games. “We'll have some play counts for a few guys, including [quarterback] Joe [Flacco] and some of the defensive players, but we'll see how it goes,” Harbaugh said “Basically, [the starters will play] about a quarter.” There will be some exceptions, he said, just as there were last week against San Francisco.

As it turns out, the  Ravens  didn't make out as well as what was originally thought in the deal that sent inactive middle linebacker Rolando McClain to the  Dallas Cowboys . It was widely reported after the deal that the Ravens would send McClain, who was on the reserved/retired list, plus a 2015 seventh-round pick to the Cowboys for a 2015 sixth-round pick. However, that's the best-case scenario. The Cowboys announced the terms of the deal today and that 2015 draft pick exchange will only take place if McClain plays 50 percent of the defensive snaps for Dallas during the 2014 season.

Rolando McClain was property of the Ravens for less than 15 months, a period in which he never participated in a single practice for the organization, yet he managed to make plenty of headlines. Here is a look at McClain's tumultuous stay in Baltimore: April 12, 2013 : The Ravens signed McClain, the former first-round draft pick who had been cut a week earlier by the Oakland Raiders amid a series of off-the-field issues, to a one-year, $700,000 contract that included $400,000 in playing-time incentives.
