Welcome to your post-weekend online trends report for Monday, March 4. Romney appeared on Fox News Sunday with wife Ann, who said among other things that "I totally believe at this moment, if Mitt were there in the office, that we would not be facing sequestration right now.

I have been duped. When I heard of Dennis Rodman's initial visit to North Korea, I held onto a sliver of hope that it would possibly open a window of diplomatic negotiations with the nation ensconced in secrecy and carefully crafted propaganda ("Rodman, in trouble over interview, blames drink," Jan. 9). I couldn't have been more wrong. Mr. Rodman is simply a self-serving man who seeks media attention, not unlike that of the Kardashian clan. Mr. Rodman knows nothing about American missionary Kenneth Bae, and proved it in during a drunken rant at a recent press conference.

REGARDING ETHICS, Thomas W. Redmond Sr. seems to have problems doing the right thing. The Anne Arundel County Ethics Commission ruled last week that the county councilman correctly abstained from voting on a measure affecting his towing business, but improperly participated in work sessions that produced the bill.Mr. Redmond earned more than $32,000 in county fees through an exclusive contract towing cars for the Police Department in parts of Pasadena.In assessing Mr. Redmond's role in the legislation, which affected the bonding of towing companies, "his actions constituted an attempt to influence legislation in which he had a direct interest," the commission concluded.

Columnist Robert L. Ehrlich Jr. offered a great commentary on President Barack Obama's foreign policy mistakes. But he should also have mentioned the failed Libyan intrusion, which led to the as yet unexplained visit by Ambassador J. Christopher Stevens to Benghazi without appropriate security and his resulting demise without any help from the current administration ("Obama's foreign policy failures," Dec. 8). Also, CBS has reported that al-Qaida flags are now flying over some government buildings.

Sometimes when I'm lovingly caressing my remote control, safe in the privacy of my own home, I trip over those gruesome surgeries on the Learning Channel. In a flash, without warning or choice, I find myself crawling through the bloody viscera of an unfortunate stranger, his or her swollen tissues and palpitating organs oozing around me as if I were one of those shrunken scientists in the movie "Fantastic Voyage."Once, although it may have been some brilliant dream, I swear I even glimpsed a brain, a naked brain, a gray knot of tightly coiled tubes pulsing within an open canyon of skull.

The Chicago book signing did it.That May event made it very clear that Dennis Rodman is in dire need of a makeover.The reason wasn't that Rodman, bad boy of the basketball court, held court in drag as he signed copies of his autobiography, "Bad as I Wanna Be." It was that he was in "bad" drag. Nothing's worse than a bad drag queen.Think about it!His cat-woman, caked-on makeup was thick enough to make bricks.The neon-pink boa was ultra tired, like campy, classic "Rocky Horror Picture Show" stuff.

The Obama administration's handling of the Syrian situation can't get much worse ( "Syria: Where is the outrage?" Sept. 3). Drawing a "red line" was not too bright, the last two weeks of huffing and puffing have been comical, and now President Obama punts. I guess the only thing left to do is call in Dennis Rodman to help again. Lyle Rescott, Marriottsville

Creating a distraction Keith Groller Morning Call Nice move by Andrew Bynum. With 76ers fans frustrated that the savior who was going to lead the franchise back to the days of Moses is out until January, Bynum has distracted them with his new 'do. After all, who can hate Captain Kangaroo? Bynum beware. Bizarre hair did nothing to soften Don King's image as someone who would shave his mother's head if he could make a buck. The worst? Troy Polamalu, because while others like Dennis Rodman needed their hair for hype, Polamalu has become more famous for his locks than his licks on the field.

WASHINGTON - We should not jump to conclusions about the Kobe Bryant case. There's a lot we do not know about what went on in a Colorado hotel room between the Los Angeles Lakers star and the unidentified 19-year-old woman who has accused him of sexual assault. But here's what I have learned after a visit to the nerve center of my neighborhood's intelligence apparatus, the barbershop: 1. Mr. Bryant confessed in a news conference to committing the sin of adultery but denied committing the crime of rape.

WASHINGTON -- As the charter bus carrying the Chicago Bulls pulled up to the MCI Center yesterday afternoon, not a single soul awaited them. Nobody. Which was approximately the same size of the crowd that staked out the team's Crystal City, Va., hotel during its brief stay in the area, a slight that had some of the players reflecting on the good old days. "Back then, there'd be 500 to a thousand people at the hotel, 500 to a thousand people waiting for us when we pulled in here," said second-year guard Keith Booth, the former Dunbar and Maryland star.
