Regarding the Dec. 20 article about two men being charged $90 apiece for not having life vests ( "Rescuers fined after freeing deer from Patapsco ice" I thought this was absurd, as I've never heard of such a fine, and given the fact they were doing a good deed by rescuing a deer stuck in the ice. On top of that, they risked being arrested? Meanwhile, animal killer Michael Vick earns a fortune, and the Humane Society is considering allowing him to own another dog. This all just proves how topsy-turvy the justice system is nowadays.

One reads it in a diary entry. Another hears it in a song. Yet another feels it in an aging mansion. The War of 1812 is often referred to as a forgotten war. Yet for the descendants of those who witnessed the Battle of Baltimore, the conflict remains vivid. It was two centuries ago this week that British ships descended on Baltimore to deliver a death blow to the young United States. They had seized and burned Washington, and they thought they would score an easy victory here.

Regarding Tami Santelli's recent commentary on the controversy over pit bulls, I rescued both my dogs ( "Singling out pit bulls is unfair," Jan. 6). One came from the Baltimore Animal Rescue and Care Shelter, and he was almost starved to death. Why don't we blame his previous owner for being negligent? Let's hold the humans accountable. Blame the deed, not the breed. I wish legislators would wake up. Our representatives always throw this issue to the side. Meanwhile, people are forced to surrender their family pets.

One night in mid-January, Jessica Watson couldn't sleep. Her mind wouldn't stop running. Then, she had an idea. "I just literally thought to myself that we all need to be kinder to each other," said Watson, 30, who runs her own design consulting studio in Baltimore. "These are the things that keep me up at night. " Watson wished there were a way people could more intentionally perform acts of kindness. So she started 28 Days of Kindness, a global initiative meant to promote the awareness of doing good deeds for others throughout February.

Last weekend, I was readying my garden beds for the annual Mother's Day planting. I'm a bit of a lazy gardener so I let our compost set in bins rather than stirring it on a regular basis. The compost, being two years old, should have been well "cooked" and very rich. Imagine my surprise when I found one of the bins opened and emptied of its contents. Really? Compost? Who would steal compost? Compost has no market value so it's not as though someone would remove it to sell.

Harry Hughes.That job, as head of DET's unemployment insurance division, was sandwiched by work with the Baltimore City Neighborhood Progress Administration.

I am writing to correct the serious factual inaccuracies raised by Anne D. Neal in her commentary discussing the sale of Belward Farm by Elizabeth Beall Banks and her siblings ("Will Hopkins respect its donor's wishes?" Oct.17). It is important for me to do so as a lead steward for gifts to Johns Hopkins University, an institution that believes philanthropy is the collaboration of benefactors and institutions to do good in the world. Without trust and good will on both sides, that collaboration cannot occur and the world would be the worse for it. In this case, the Banks siblings and the university reached an agreement as to how the Montgomery County property was to be used.

Several unscrupulous companies are circulating materials in the Baltimore area that are aimed at taking advantage of homeowners, according to St. Ambrose Housing Aid Center, a Baltimore charity that counsels home buyers and people facing foreclosure. One type of scam sends homeowners a letter by U.S. mail that says the homeowner should have on hand an official copy of their home's deed. The company then offers to acquire and forward to the homeowner a copy of the deed - for $70 or more.
