It's your fault Justin Bieber is a jerk. That's the contention of attorney Roy Black, who is defending the 20-year-old singer on a DUI charge stemming from a Jan. 23 arrest in Miami Beach. Mr. Black spoke to reporters this month as video of Mr. Bieber's deposition in the case of an alleged assault by one of his bodyguards -- you can't keep this young man's legal woes straight without a scorecard -- was making the rounds on the Internet. It was not a pretty picture. Mr. Bieber comes across as a twerp so snotty and insolent even Mother Teresa would want to smack him. It's been suggested that opposing counsel baited Mr. Bieber by asking provocative questions unrelated to the matter at hand, such as his on-and-off relationship with Selena Gomez.

What follows is a riveting and heartbreaking account of one man's journey into the thick of what most Americans now know as the "pedophile priest scandal."

EDITORIAL FROM THE RECORD | July 31, 2013
Situated at a geographic nexus, Port Deposit has seen its fortunes rise and fall and rise again over its 200 years as a town, largely thanks to its location. Like many river towns along the Susquehanna, it was established to deal with waterborne transit of cargo and hugs a relatively narrow section of riverbank. Unlike other riverway stations, it is the last of the so called ports of deposit along the part of the Susquehanna that has a reliable current. Geologically, the river from Port Deposit up is shallow, but at Port Deposit and extending down to Perryville, it is deep enough to accommodate even ocean-going vessels.
