If Disturbed's latest CD, Ten Thousand Fists, were released as a gatefold LP, then you could better appreciate its cover art. Created by comic artist Greg Capullo and producer-artist Todd McFarlane, the image depicts a sea of people - black, white, old, young, disenfranchised - with fists defiantly upraised. The unity, the individuality captured in the drawing is as striking as the music inside. "The cover is supposed to symbolize unity from every walk of life. That's what the music is basically about," says drummer Mike Wengren, Disturbed's available spokesman, who's calling from New York City.

It is impossible to avoid thinking about Sarah Kane's suicide by hanging in 1999 at the age of 28 when encountering the British playwright's final work, "4.48 Psychosis. " There's something at once real and surreal, disturbing and absorbing, about this roughly hour-long examination of mental illness, qualities that Iron Crow Theatre seizes upon in a darkly evocative production directed by Ryan Clark at Theatre Project. Kane's non-linear play is a kind of manic prose poem about people in various stages of mental illness; warnings and pleas seem to haunt every line.

The president of the University of Maryland, Baltimore campus said he is "deeply disturbed" by two crimes reported against members of the campus community Monday night and will hold a public safety town hall next week. The incidents -- a robbery of a nursing student and an attempted robbery of a hospital employee -- have prompted campus police to add additional police and security officers, who will wear reflective vests on foot or on Segways, President Jay A. Perman said in an e-mail to employees and students.

A Baltimore social services worker was found guilty of contributing to the delinquency of a minor and sentenced to three years' probation yesterday for telling a mentally disturbed teen-ager to leave Howard County Circuit Court on his own. Carroll County Circuit Judge Francis M. Arnold said that Larry D. Richardson, 43, of Chase caused the boy to flee the courthouse after a hearing Oct. 31 last year by telling the child to "get to steppin.'" The teen-ager, who takes anti-psychotic drugs and is known to be violent, was found several hours later near a fast-food restaurant on U.S. 40.

Mayor Stephanie Rawlings-Blake won praise from clergy and community leaders Friday after calling for a federal investigation into allegations of police brutality - a move that is all but certain to draw added scrutiny on City Hall. But careful observers noted the request from Rawlings-Blake and Police Commissioner Anthony W. Batts came hours after another official - City Council President Bernard C. "Jack" Young - raised his hand to invite the U.S. Department of Justice in for a closer look.

Visitors to the Columbia Festival of the Arts-related art exhibit "Things That Scare Me" may experience sleepless nights as a result. Shown jointly at the Columbia Art Center and Howard Community College, this show taps into a host of topics guaranteed to make you feel uneasy. You're also like to emerge from the galleries with a nervous smile, because there is enough unexpected subject matter, clever technique and whimsical attitude on display to prompt your own humorous consideration of essentially serious concerns.

I've been thinking a lot about college lately. It's not as though it's staring me in the face, either. The oldest is finishing his freshman year in high school. The youngest is still in elementary school. Still, what's occurring on America's college campuses is on my front burner. First and foremost is the ever-escalating cost of a four-year degree - the cause of many a sleepless night for moms and dads. Tuition, fees, room and board for many private colleges has now hit $60,000 a year.

Letter to The Aegis | March 13, 2014
Editor, The Aegis editorial March 5th about consolidating water and sewer systems throughout the County leaves one with some troubling thoughts and questions. The previous generation of County leadership based water and sewer payback on projected new growth - around 1,400 houses or hookups were said to be needed every year to meet the costs. That projection was reasonable back in the wild and woolly fast growth days, but no longer holds true. Last year the Harford County Spending Affordability Advisory Committee stated they were aware that the Water and Sewer Operating fund may indeed incur debt before "repayment by consumers is realized.

I have recently been made aware of plans for Symphony Woods that deeply disturb me ( "Inner Arbor plans 'wow' Howard Co. design panel," Feb. 27). I remember Symphony Woods as a wooded site that was selected to be Columbia's Town Center Park. In 1965 Jim Rouse and his planners hired my firm to design the Music Pavilion for the Washington National Symphony. The walk through the woods to the pavilion site inspired my design. Now I understand the proposed Inner Arbor plan, which ignores Jim Rouse's original vision, will scatter out-of-scale "attractions" instead of creating a beautiful park around the pavilion.

I applaud Maryland's initiative to create a new center to identify and treat people with psychotic symptoms early in their illness ( "Mental illness and guns," Oct. 23). However, the current commitment laws in Maryland remain an impediment for a number of reasons. Some individuals with severe psychosis, for example, have a brain condition called anosognosia, which renders them unable to understand that they are ill and thus that they need treatment. That is why they often refuse treatment.

Hopes for a miraculous rehabilitation at the Charles H. Hickey Jr. School have flourished again as a new private operator takes control of the Baltimore County juvenile reformatory.Each change at the Cub Hill institution over the past three years has inspired optimism that ultimately foundered on the hard realities of a recalcitrant population, obsolete facilities, an overwhelmed staff and frightened neighbors.This time, cautious hope may be warranted with the takeover of Hickey by Youth Services International, which has won respect for its management of the Victor Cullen Center near Thurmont, a state facility for 120 less hard-core delinquents.

EDITORIAL FROM THE AEGIS | August 6, 2013
Year in and year out, there's a certain rhythm to particular kinds of problems. When the weather turns warm and school has let out for summer break, there's often an uptick in petty neighborhood incidents. In March and October, before the leaves are on the trees or before there's a hard freeze, respectively, brush fires pop up across Harford County and Maryland. Typically, if there's a spate of house fires, it relates to the changing of the season from summer to autumn as people are making use of fireplaces and turning on appliances that have been dormant for weeks or months.

The American clock brings us to the 50th anniversaries of two extraordinary events involving two extraordinary women, Gloria Richardson Dandridge and Madalyn Murray O'Hair — both strong-willed champions of liberty and disturbers of the status quo, but women of very different character, purpose and legacy. One is now 91 years old, long esteemed as a brave civil rights leader who refused to smile on demand and who famously brushed away a bayonet. The other was a noisy atheist, reviled as the most hated woman in America; she died a violent death nearly two decades ago. This month marks 50 years since the race riots in Cambridge, the small city on Maryland's Eastern Shore that became a crucible for civil rights in 1963.
