The defeat of the gay marriage bill in the state General Assembly last week was a huge disappointment. I am disappointed in the people I voted for who led me to believe that they supported equal rights for gay Marylanders, only to turn tail and run when confronted with the well-funded bigots from the National Organization for Marriage. It is small comfort when people who are against my equal rights claim "this doesn't mean we hate gays. " A marriage certificate is issued by the government, not the church.

The words delivered in the Orioles clubhouse after another jaw-busting, late-inning loss to the Kansas City Royals in the American League Championship Series belied the otherwise eerie silence that punctuated the room. Bounce around from player to player after Saturday's 6-4 loss in Game 2 and, no matter who you talk to, the refrain remains the same. It's only two losses. These Orioles are great on the road. They have overcome so much adversity, what's a little more? “It's tough, it's a hole,” Orioles reliever Darren O'Day said.

I am thankful this holiday season that former Annapolis Mayor Josh Cohen was able to find employment so soon after being voted out of office ( "Annapolis' former mayor Cohen takes job with state," Dec. 9). With so many Marylanders unable to find work, not to mention those who have given up looking, Mr. Cohen was able to land a cushy $112,000 a year position with the Maryland Department of General Services. Isn't he lucky that such a position happened to be available just when he was looking?

While much of the response to the Ebola epidemic in West Africa is contingent on the United States government's public health and military actions ( "Ebola hits home," Oct. 2), health professionals and government officials have been quite reluctant to come to terms with how America's history of public health espionage and medical mistreatment complicate the battle against Ebola. America has a long history of medical mistreatment and imperialism which are now providing the fuel for Ebola conspiracy beliefs.

The Aberdeen IronBirds suffered their sixth straight loss Saturday night, managing just two hits in an 8-0 shutout loss to the host-team Hudson Valley Renegades. With the defeat, Aberdeen fell to 2-14, and as of Saturday the IronBirds were in the cellar of the New York-Penn League's four-team McNamara Division, 4.5 games behind third-place Hudson Valley. Aberdeen's best scoring opportunity came in the top of the second, when Riley Hornback belted a two-out double to the right field wall, and Kyle Hoppy followed by taking a pitch off his body.

HOUSTON -- Even though a court has threatened to shut down the Texas public schools June 1 unless the state divides money for education more equitably, voters rejected yesterday a plan that would have forced some wealthy districts to share money with poor ones.The defeat of the proposed amendment to the state constitution, Proposition 1, throws back to the Legislature the vexing question of how to ensure a decent education for the 3.2 million children in the Texas school system, the nation's second-largest after California's.

Quarterback Keenan Reynolds came into the 2014 season as a dark-horse Heisman Trophy candidate, his reputation built as much on his reliability running the Navy football team's triple-option offense as on his big-play ability. Four games into his junior year, Reynolds has been neither as steady nor as spectacular as he was his first two seasons. Unfortunately for Navy, having a quarterback who is more human than heroic won't work as well as it did those two years, either. While Reynolds largely wasn't to blame for Saturday's 31-24 loss to Rutgers at Navy-Marine Corps Memorial Stadium, he was the first to take his share of the responsibility.

Geopolitical analysts are especially fond of quoting Edmund Burke and George Santayana on the folly of ignoring the lessons of history and the dangers of repeating the original decisions. But what's even more imprudent, and potentially fatal, is to learn the wrong lessons from history — and by avoiding the previous mistakes, plow ahead without understanding the causes of their failure. President Barack Obama is now in danger of steering a perilous course in confronting the threat of Islamic State in the Middle East (also known as ISIS or ISIL)

President Barack Obama plans to address the nation tomorrow to lay out his strategy for defeating ISIS, the radical Islamist group whose gruesome beheadings and mass killings have terrorized tens of thousands of Iraqi and Syrian civilians in the areas it controls. The actions he is expected to propose will take time to work and require strong American leadership to build the kind of broad-based coalition needed to confront ISIS' battle-hardened militants. But they are also the result of a realistic assessment of the threat, and they can succeed given a sustained commitment to finish the job on the part of the U.S. and its allies.

Calvert Hall's football team is fully recovered from an injury-riddled 2013 season. The Cardinals proved as much in Friday night's 35-24 win over No. 3 Franklin, the defending state Class 3A champion that returned 18 starters. After Calvert Hall won last year's inaugural meeting between the schools, 24-14, the Indians were determined to take their first win over a Maryland Interscholastic Athletic Association A Conference team, but the Cardinals scored 15 points in the final 6:55 - a safety and rushing touchdowns by Tim Smith and Kevin Thomas - to put the game away.

NEW ORLEANS - Inside the Ravens' locker room late Thursday night, wide receiver Kamar Aiken broke into a smile as he reflected on how to handle the anxiety of waiting to learn whether he has made the team. With Saturday's 4 p.m. deadline for the 53-man roster closing in on the Ravens, Aiken and his fellow wide receivers likely made one decision even more difficult with their performances in the team's preseason finale, a 22-13 victory over the New Orleans Saints at the Mercedes-Benz Superdome.

It wasn't particularly pretty, but the end result was the same as it has been all season. After giving up two runs in the top of the inning, the No. 2 Fallston baseball team was staring at a two-run deficit as it prepared to bat in the fourth against Franklin. But a six-run inning broke the game open, and the Cougars (8-0) went on to defeat the visiting Indians, 11-6, to remain unbeaten. Ryan Ziolkowski was 2-for-4 with three RBIs to lead Fallston, which added four more runs in the sixth after Franklin (4-2)

Rice, the council chairman, was trailing Bill D. Burlison, the longtime U.S. representative from Missouri who moved to Maryland after he was voted out of office in 1980 in an ugly political scandal.

The opposing views on the Gaza conflict offered by two recent commentators compel me to respond to some important facts left out of the discussion by those sympathetic to Hamas ( "Israel's unjust war," July 31, and "Hamas' unjust war," Aug. 1). First, to compare the downing of Malaysian Airlines Flight 17 over Ukraine that killed all aboard to Israel's Iron Dome air defense system that has protected Jewish civilians from Hamas' missiles is ridiculous. There would not be one Arab civilian killed if Hamas stopped launching missiles and putting its people in harm's way by agreeing to make peace and accept Israel's right to exist.
