In the case of the Keystone XL pipeline, President Obama was caught between two groups of his most powerful supporters ("Obama delays decision on Keystone oil pipeline," Nov. 11). By allowing the State Department to put off the decision, he avoids being blamed by either group for the time being. He can now walk into a roomful of union supporters, give them a wink, and leave them with the hope that after the election is over, when he no longer needs the environmentalists' donations to get re-elected, he will betray them and allow the pipeline to be built.

When Baltimore city schools and the Maryland Stadium Authority adopted a plan to update the city's aging school buildings in January 2013, they hoped to rebuild or restore 30 to 35 schools in the first phase of renovations. But studies to identify the schools' needs determined that the $977 million in bond funding the system expects to receive would cover only 23 to 28 schools. The city school commissioners at their board meeting Tuesday night reviewed a hotly contested recommendation to defer renovations to some of Baltimore's most dilapidated schools because they would be the costliest to renovate.

So the Sun editorial staff considers the delay in implementing a portion of the president's health care law to be only "an embarrassment" that "doesn't begin to undermine the good that will be done by the Affordable Care Act ? ("Obamacare delay sounds worse than it is," July 3.) I was under the impression that the executive branch of the government executed the laws that, without modification, the legislative branch enacted. Has the president forgotten that is why we have separate branches of government?

Race organizer and promoter Jay Davidson said there were two reasons for the delay to the start of Friday's activities for the inaugural Baltimore Grand Prix -- last week's weather, and giving Baltimore residents as much access to the roads as possible for as long as possible. "The timing could have been better," Davidson said by phone. "But we had a lot of intersections with main traveling arteries open that have to be closed and last week a lot of the fencing had to come down because of the wind warnings [associated with Hurricane Irene]

The clouds didn't exactly part for the Blue Angels, but they lifted just enough Saturday afternoon, the rain stopped, and suddenly three F/A-18 Hornets soared past in tight formation over the southeast edge of the Inner Harbor — the show was on for the Star-Spangled Spectacular. Thousands of people gathered at the Inner Harbor to celebrate the 200th anniversary of the national anthem waited nearly two hours for a glimpse of the team, as the rain sprinkled on and off, clouds lowered and lifted again, and the Blue Angels waited for safe flying conditions.

Fox News Friday afternoon acknowledged showing a man committing suicide on-air despite the channel being on a five-second delay that should have allowed producers to cut away. Here's video of show host Shepard Smith trying to explain what happened. I am not sure there is an explanation for this kind of gatekeeping ineptitude. Unless it's that channels like Fox that masquerade as news operations make no real commitment to being responsible gatekeepers. So, when called on to actually cover news in a responsible manner, they regularly fall short.

About 3,900 Maryland guardsmen would be sidelined during September to save $1.5 million - part of an effort to trim the Guard's overall budget by tens of millions of dollars in coming weeks, said Col. Charles Kohler of the Maryland National Guard.
