Here is what he said: "...all constitutional rights are regulated, always have been, and need to be. " It would seem to be a self-evident truth. After all, your First Amendment right to freedom of speech is regulated. If you don't believe it, write something libelous about a guy with deep pockets and man-eating lawyers. Your Fourth Amendment right to freedom from unreasonable searches and seizures is regulated and then some. If you don't believe that, pick up your phone and ask the NSA agent tapping your line.

Thanks to The Sun I now know what it may have been to read the paper in 1898 prior to the Spanish American War ("Punishing Syria," Aug. 27). Your editorial was all that yellow journalism could be, waving the bloody flag, citing massacres that no one could actually attribute to any one side with assurance. We have a president who states that crossing a red line will have serious consequences and then retreats like Hamlet to think on those consequences and issue more rhetoric. Secretary of State John Kerry comes forth twice to cite an unspecified intelligence report that is certain proof of the guilt of the Syrian regime and that we will form a coalition to deliver consequences to the guilty, even though we really don't know who they are. And the supposed members of the coalition have one by one opted out, so we are left with a coalition of one. And we are told by our media, fully subservient to our would-be Caesar, that we must teach them a lesson, we must throw some bombs or missiles at the Syrian regime as punishment for their terrible crimes against their own people.

Nelson Neuman, who owned a metal drum company, died of heart failure Sunday at Levindale Hebrew Geriatric Center & Hospital. The Pikesville resident was 86. Born in Baltimore and raised on East Fayette Street, Mr. Neuman was a 1935 graduate of Polytechnic Institute. As a young man, he was an engineering technician at Aberdeen Proving Ground, checking on the rifling and performance of 14-inch and 16-inch naval guns. Mr. Nelson founded the Abbey Drum Co. in 1948. Family members said his containers were used to ship products as diverse as orange juice and motor oil. In 1995, he supervised the relocation of his business from Curtis Bay to an Empowerment Zone in Fairfield in the former Victory Elementary School, where the children of Liberty ship workers were educated during World War II. "My father regularly hired people who had just been released from jail," said son Ian H. Neuman of Baltimore.

Students crowd around music teacher Nellie Hill and hold out their hands, telling her that their fingers still are vibrating after spending 45 minutes pounding on drums. That's one of the sensations students experience as part of Lime Kiln Middle School's World Music Drumming group. "I feel more like I'm playing when I'm using my hands, not sticks," said eighth-grader Paul Del Riego, who is participating in the group for the first time. "I feel like I'm more in the music. The sound that it makes is just really cool."

The steel drum sounds that filled the room at Catonsville High School were so infectious that students playing the instruments couldn't help but dance. Music teacher Jim Wharton, the cavorting leader of the impromptu jam session, was steadily beating a cowbell when he stared out a nearby window and spotted a truck driver looking in while reversing the vehicle. "Come on," Wharton beckoned, motioning the driver to pull over and join the troupe. Even though his calls went unheeded, the 62-year-old child at heart resumed getting his groove on, savoring the Caribbean flavor he helped introduce to Baltimore County schools more than 20 years ago. After teaching music in the county for nearly 40 years, Wharton is retiring.

With primary battles settled, the conventions over and the general election less than two months away, Democrats and Republicans now turn to the end game: reaching out to persuade the few remaining undecided voters that their nominee is the one to solve the nation's problems. For campaign volunteers in deep-blue Maryland, that often means traveling elsewhere. With the state expected to give its 10 electoral votes in November to President Barack Obama — Maryland has backed the Democrat in each of the past five presidential elections, and went for Obama by a 25-point margin in 2008 — activists from both parties are fanning out to Pennsylvania, Virginia and battlegrounds beyond.

As the giant silver bell of a bugle reflected City Dock, the man who suggested The World Championships of Drum Corps move to Annapolis considered the impact beyond an estimated $10 million and 13,000 visitors. "How big a deal is it? It's important enough to bring a corps back from the grave," said Jeff Weir, director of the Naval Academy's Drum & Bugle Corps. "If the World Championships are in your backyard," Weir said, "Well, it's almost like having the Super Bowl in Baltimore.

The drumbeat for war only helps Iran by driving up oil prices, undermining the effect of sanctions on its economy and stifling domestic opponents of the regime. President Barack Obama conveyed that message clearly and emphatically to the American Israel Public Affairs Committee over the weekend. He repeated it to Israeli Prime Minister Benjamin Netanyahu when the two met at the White House on Monday. And he aimed it at his prospective Republican rivals Tuesday when he reminded them of what happened the last time we let the politics of warmongering get ahead of diplomacy.

With 600 students, including a significant percentage of immigrants, music teacher Diane Schaming wanted to try something new to interest the children in the music of different cultures. So last summer she went to Africa and brought back music to Baltimore County's Shady Spring Elementary School that now vibrates through every molecule of her classroom trailer. Her fourth-grade students beat on drums, shake axatses or rattles, and hit cowbells and a double bell called a gankogin.

A worker at a city laboratory was injured yesterday morning when a pressurized 55-gallon drum containing smallpox vaccine ruptured, and its lid struck him in the head, fire officials said. The worker, whose name was not released, was taken to Maryland Shock Trauma Center for treatment. Authorities said no smallpox vaccine escaped during the incident. Even if it had, experts said, it would not have posed a health threat. Fire officials said the worker attempted to open the drum about 9 a.m. at Chesapeake Biological Laboratories Inc. at 1111 S. Paca St. Due to built-up pressure inside the drum, the lid popped off and hit him in the head, officials said.

Fall menus are arriving. Bluegrass Tavern executive chef Ray Kumm rolled out his fall menu on Sept. 9. Debuting at Bluegrass -- elk tartare, with violet mustard dressing, marinated corn and fried quail egg. Foie gras is back, with crispy pork belly, nectarines and cherry bourbon pudding. Cockles are on the light fare menu, steamed with four kinds of onions. Rabbit is on the menu, and butter poached sturgeon, but what caught my eye was this entree. Pan seared red drum -- tasso ham tortelli, cockles, chayote, tomato broth.

Fifty trips to New York to honor some of the 343 firefighters who died in the aftermath of 9/11 helped ignite an idea in the mind of Howard County Assistant Fire Chief J. Mark Richards, resulting in a mission he is carrying out today. Standing at attention several dozen different times while listening to bagpipers play as pallbearers carried the caskets of those New York firefighters, he knew what he wanted to do: Help form a pipe band back in Maryland. Richards made those trips a decade ago with other county firefighters during off-duty hours to Staten Island and Manhattan to attend funeral and memorial services held in the vicinity of the World Trade Center's twin towers.
