Thrillers make us think, "How can she be stupid enough to walk into that room alone -- hasn't she ever seen a movie!" Martin Campbell's "Defenseless" isn't good enough to keep us from asking such questions, but it's scary enough to make us forget them almost as soon as they come to mind."

The NFL has suspended Washington Redskins safety Brandon Meriweather for two games for an illegal hit on Ravens wide receiver Torrey Smith. Meriweather was penalized for a personal foul for hitting a defenseless receiver in the head and neck area when he struck Smith in the second quarter Saturday night during the Ravens' 23-17 victory. Smith was unhurt on the play. Meriweather also hit Ravens running back Bernard Pierce in the head, causing a concussion and forcing him out of the game, but it was a legal hit. This marks Meriweather's sixth violation of unnecessary roughness rules regarding hits to defenseless players and impermissible use of the helmet.

One has to feel very sorry for the people of Arizona. As the Sun reports ("Split decision," June 26), the Supreme Court ruled the federal government has to sole power to enforce laws against illegal immigration. The question naturally follows "What if there are no laws?" Article IV, Section 4, of the Constitution reads, "The United States shall guarantee to every state in this Union a Republican Form of Government, and shall protect each of them against invasion. " The people of Arizona and their lands have been and are being subjected to an invasion by people from Mexico, yet they are rendered powerless by the Supreme Court to defend themselves.

From Saturday's blog: "Greetings from Indianapolis - the city that Dick The Bruiser made famous - where I'll be watching the Ravens lay the smack down on the Colts tomorrow at Lucas Oil Stadium." Result: Colts, 31-3. Unlike wrestling, there was no ref stoppage because the Ravens were defenseless while getting pummeled. Comment: There hasn't been that much of a one-sided contest in Indianapolis since The Undertaker squashed Jake "The Snake" Roberts at WrestleMania XIII at the Hoosier Dome.

For the second time in three years, Baltimore County Circuit Judge Thomas J. Bollinger Sr. has sentenced pipefitter Michael S. Matusky to two life sentences for the murders of a 39-year-old Parkville woman and her 75-year-old mother.Matusky, 48, of Cockeysville won a second trial after the Court of Special Appeals -- the state's second-highest court -- overturned his 1994 conviction on two counts of first-degree murder, saying hearsay statements naming Matusky as the killer should not have been admitted as evidence.

Why Do We Pick on the Defenseless?Editor: I was appalled to read that the Baltimore City administration to save funds would cut to 10 days from 30 days the storage period for an evicted person's personal effects.I recently heard a homeless woman's testimony of how she was evicted by an unscrupulous landlord who told her she complained too much (the last complaint being when her child was almost hit by a sink that fell off the wall). Obviously she lived in sub-standard housing and did not know her legal rights.

INDIANAPOLIS - A week after the Ravens believed a roughing-the-passer penalty cost them a game, there was no excuse given in watching Peyton Manning rough up their secondary. The once-struggling Indianapolis Colts quarterback ripped up the once-top-ranked pass defense, throwing for three touchdowns in a 31-3 rout of the Ravens in front of an announced sellout crowd of 66,153. After allowing wide receivers to catch two touchdown passes in the first four games, the Ravens (2-3) surrendered three to Colts receivers in the first half alone.

DENVER -- Maddeningly meticulous and impeccably precise, this was Peyton Manning at his cruel best. Skewering a Denver defense that was designed specifically to stop him, Manning led the Indianapolis Colts over, around and through the Broncos yesterday, throwing for 345 yards and three touchdowns to Reggie Wayne for a message-sending 34-31 victory. "When you play a guy like Peyton Manning, and the guy's going to put it on there on the money, what can you do?" Broncos cornerback Champ Bailey said.

COLLEGE PARK - For three hours yesterday at Byrd Stadium, University of Maryland football coach Ralph Friedgen watched the Terrapins surrender ground to West Virginia in every way imaginable. The Terps got knocked off the ball routinely up front, leaving their second level of defenders to make tackles, which they often missed. Maryland looked confused while failing to stop the same, double-reverse play a handful of times. The Terps gave up numerous long runs, an occasional long pass and wore down completely.

They carted Mike Tyson off to prison yesterday. It's a remarkable ending to his story, although probably not the actual, final ending. This particular ending is more likely a midpoint.Sentenced to six years and perhaps out in three, Tyson can be expected to fight another day. In three years he'll be 28. He'll be rested. And, besides, in the Larry Holmes/George Foreman era, when comebacks begin at 40, Tyson could have gotten life and still have been back on the streets with time to salvage a career.
