If you read the "Uniform Code of Military Justice," Gen. Stanley McChrystal got off easy. What he and his crew did were court martial-grade offenses. If President Obama had only given him a slap on the wrist it would have opened the door to even bigger infractions by others who would have read this as a weakness on the part of the president. I agree with the president on this. He had no other alternative action except court martial. Every new soldier, marine and sailor gets the same speech about the "Code of Conduct" and "Uniform Code of Military Justice."

Ravens coach John Harbaugh woke up Monday and watched the tape from Sunday's game again. It was even more enjoyable than witnessing it from his spot on the sideline. "It was a lot more fun watching the tape … when I already know the outcome," said Harbaugh, a day after the Ravens had one of their most explosive offensive performances in team history and routed the Tampa Bay Buccaneers 48-17 at Raymond James Stadium. "But any time you see a touchdown, it's fun. It's a joy, it's just a great feeling.

Four bucks a gallon for gas? In the years since gas prices went from 39 cents per gallon to $3.39, I have seen nothing but an increase in traffic. I don't expect to see any difference if it goes to $10-a-gallon either. There still remains primarily one 150-pound person per 3,000-pound automobile and they all have trouble entering the highway. They all (myself included) will get in a car and drive two miles just to purchase a tube of toothpaste. So why get upset? Not worth it?

It probably wouldn't have made a difference even if Panthers quarterback Cam Newton had not delivered a strike to the left corner of the end zone. No one from the Ravens' secondary was in position to challenge the pass Sunday as Newton hit rookie wide receiver Kelvin Benjamin for a 28-yard touchdown in the first quarter. Free safety Darian Stewart reacted far too late after cornerback Jimmy Smith had the initial coverage on Benjamin and released him to Stewart. For the second consecutive game, the Ravens had a botched coverage because of a mix-up in coverage responsibilities.

Since Baltimore City Council Member Helen L. Holton is bereft of ideas on how to close the city's budget deficit ("Irate citizens protest taxes," May 14), I'll offer two novel ideas free of charge: (1) cut $121 million from the budget, (2) resign and be replaced with someone with the intelligence and leadership necessary to make the tough decisions.

San Francisco. -- Future historians may be about to receive a gift from California voters that could enable them to chart just when America declined and turned from a society that values individual responsibility to one in which institutions reign.If California voters approve Proposition 161, the physician-assisted suicide initiative -- the Field Poll says 68 percent of polled voters support it -- chroniclers of this age will be able to pinpoint the moment America went soft, with California characteristically leading the way.Proposition 161 would allow mentally competent adults with a terminal illness to kill themselves with the assistance of a physician.

EASY IS an adorable little bichon-poodle who lives at the Crofton Convalescent and Rehabilitation Center. For months, he has wandered the halls, visiting patients, cuddling, playing and adding cheer to the days of the residents. But Easy had a problem.When he was brought to the Center from the Anne ArundelSociety for the Prevention of Cruelty to Animals, residents noticed he seemed to have difficulty walking. Anne Marie Molster, the center's director of therapeutic recreation, brought Easy to a veterinarian, who diagnosed a kneecap problem that could be treated only through surgery.

Who do people "most identify as the voice of the Republican Party?" Last Thursday, Gallup released a survey showing that among all respondents - as well as subsets of admiring Republicans and scornful Democrats - the answer to that question was: Rush Limbaugh. At one point during his show the next day, the conservative radio host explained to his audience that the reason President Barack Obama is so popular - and, for that matter, the reason liberalism will always be popular with American majorities - is that conservatism is tough and requires thinking, while liberalism is easy because it merely requires "feelings."

College Park -- It's very easy to look at the schedule the top-ranked Maryland women's basketball team has faced so far this season and declare it, well, very easy. The Terps have won their first 16 - tying a school mark for most wins at the start of a season, while averaging 86.9 points, the second best in the nation. The defending national champions lead the country in field-goal percentage and team assists per game and are second in rebounding margin. Michigan State@Maryland Tomorrow, 2 p.m., chs. 13, 9

Regarding The Sun's editorial, "Ravens' story shifts" (Sept. 24), I'd like to make two points. First, anyone who reads the sports section for the past 30 years would now that batteries, assaults, burglaries, DUIs, drugs, etc. have been a part of the college and NFL scene for years. Except for the "elites" (especially women's groups and the media) now being upset by a video, nothing is new and nothing will really happen except a lot more wasted verbiage. Secondly, I wish The Sun would put as much energy into President Barack Obama's shifting on issues as it has on the Ravens.

The last time that Ravens quarterback Joe Flacco squared off against the Cincinnati Bengals, he trudged off the field with an aching left knee and a frustrated look on his face. Besides absorbing brutal hits from Bengals pass rushers, Flacco was intercepted three times, with his final one returned for a touchdown late in the fourth quarter of a 34-17 road loss in December. The defeat in their season finale prevented the Ravens from reaching the NFL playoffs. Despite winning the game, Bengals quarterback Andy Dalton wasn't feeling much better than Flacco after an uneven performance in which he threw four interceptions.

Artist Pablo Machioli hangs out in the belly of the letter "B. " Kyle Miller likes to linger in "U," a letter he helped shape from steel and pine. And bus driver Kaliha Taylor waits for her shift to begin while perched on the lower curve of "S.

The trio of giant letters - which resemble a set piece from "Sesame Street" - has become a favorite spot for residents to lounge or pose for photos.

It was ironic for Senate Majority Leader Harry Reid to use the term "Native Americans" recently when referring to descendants of the indigenous peoples who inhabited this continent before Europeans arrived ( "Redskins name controversy heats up with federal cancellation of trademark," June 18). Those native peoples would never call themselves "Americans. " The name "Americus" (Latin for America) was heavily inked onto early maps of the "New World" in large part as a promotional advertisement for a European adventurer and explorer named Amerigo Vespucci.

As I watched Miguel Cabrera's killer home run fly into the night, giving the Detroit Tigers a 3-1 lead over the Orioles in the ninth inning of Tuesday's game at Camden Yards, I wondered: Where in the real world, outside of baseball, does one person get the opportunity to either complete or ruin the excellent work of another? Poor Tommy Hunter. He became the Orioles "closer" this season. That means he comes late into games to preserve his team's lead and close the other guys down.

Susan Kuhn from Monkton was looking for a recipe for a dessert that her mother used to serve. As she recalls, it was made with pieces of angel food cake, fruit cocktail and whipped topping, and had the consistency of a pudding once it had been chilled. Barbara Crowley Booth from Baltimore saw Kuhn's request and thought it sounded familiar to her. She searched her recipe files and found one that her mother, Agnes Crowley , had written down for her many years ago. Booth hoped it was what Kuhn was in looking for. Her mother called it "Great and Easy Dessert.

Enter Nancy Carsey's North Baltimore co-op and you're in a parallel universe, one that's decorated in infinite hues of purple, (even her piano is purple) and peopled by larger-than-life-size statues from Africa, Oceania and other faraway places.The effect is a bit overwhelming. And so is Carsey. The director of Very Special Arts Maryland, a non-profit arts program for people with disabilities, is herself a vision in purple, plum and fuchsia. Save for the occasional detour to black, Carsey, who would prefer to discuss her "experience" rather than her age, buys clothing based on purpleness.

CHICAGO -- For three starts Jimmy Key had pitched without a compass, his exact mechanics skewed by fractions that felt like miles. Yesterday, with his team facing its third straight loss against the Chicago White Sox, Key rediscovered the precision that has made him the major leagues' winningest left-hander.Locked in a duel with White Sox starter Danny Darwin before 24,089 at Comiskey Park, Key painted by numbers. He struck out a season-high nine, walked one and allowed six hits, none for extra bases.

  I kept thinking as I was screening the new FX series, "Fargo," that it wasn't all that impressive. And then, I looked up and realized I had been watching for three hours straight. I guess it depends on how you define impressive. At best, it's one of the finest new series of the TV year. At worst, it's definitely worth an hour of your time to check out tonight at 10 on FX. But be careful, it's easy to lose yourself as I did in this world of endless snow, hopelessly flat lands, coffee shops, down jackets, small town facades, brutality, blood, drugs and slaughter.

Corey Graham exceeded the expectations of just about everyone beyond himself and the Ravens after he signed as a free agent two offseasons ago. He had been a special teams standout for the Chicago Bears before joining the Ravens, who promised him a chance to prove himself as a cornerback. Graham entered the 2012 season fourth on the depth chart at his position, but after injuries to Lardarius Webb and Jimmy Smith, he found himself in the starting lineup and rarely looked out of place.
