Shorter sentence denied driver in crash that killed 4 A Delaware woman who in 2002 caused a car crash that killed four members of a northern Baltimore County family should remain in prison, the Delaware Board of Pardons has decided. Tishara A. Duffy had asked that the remainder of her nine-year prison term be commuted in the deaths of Wayne and Emily Abbott of Freeland and their sons, Douglas, 9, and Brian, 5. Duffy, who pleaded guilty in 2003 to first-degree assault and four counts of criminally negligent homicide, expressed remorse during a hearing Thursday for her role in the high-speed accident on Route 1 north of Dover, but the board voted not to recommend to Gov. Ruth Ann Minner that Duffy be set free.

"Give me a good cartoonist," H. L. Mencken once wrote, "and I can throw out half the editorial staff." Typical Mencken extravagance, no doubt, but the Bard of Baltimore had some basis for his observation.For among his colleagues at The Sun in the Twenties, Thirties and Forties were Edmund Duffy, a three-time Pulitzer Prize winner who could unmask a Ku Kluxer as a pitiful loser or portray Hitler as a strutting monster, and Richard "Moco" Yardley, whose sunny, whimsical drawings were love notes to the life and lore of Maryland.

Although Richard "Moco" Yardley was a contemporary of Edmund Duffy, they might as well have lived on different planets, with Yardley inhabiting the more daft and distant of the two. Born in Baltimore in 1903, he became a hometown institution with his whimsical cartoons.He joined this newspaper in 1923 as an artist-retoucher for The Evening Sun and before the end of the decade had established himself as a backpage local cartoonist. His hilarious insights had Marylanders laughing as frequently as Duffy's angry cartoons moved them to outrage.
