If you are wondering how fallout from the Ray Rice elevator attack might affect the Ravens image, check out this "Saturday Night Live" skit depicting the team as criminals. The Carolina Panthers, the team the Ravens play Sunday, was satirized in the same way last night, as well as the NFL and CBS Sports Jim Nantz and Phil Simms for their handling of the scandal. It's disingenuous for SNL to be mocking CBS and not its own NBC Sports, which has the biggest NFL show on TV in "Sunday Night Football.

ROUTE 2 - A weekly journey through Anne Arundel CountyIt hasn't been easy for handicapped people to use the Noah Hillman parking garage in Annapolis recently.Signs politely apologizing for its broken elevator have been hanging at the entrances to the garage for what seems to be eons, but city officials insist has been only months.Transportation Director James Chase said the elevator broke down near the end of the city's fiscal year in June. The department didn't have $7,000 left in its budget to fix the elevator, Chase said, so it had to wait for the City Council's Finance Committee to transfer money from the general fund.

In an organization that relies heavily on the acceptable behavior of its employees to support its mission, there are generally accepted ways to deal with a crisis. First, if an employee is found to be in violation of the "acceptable behavior," deal with it immediately. The Ravens were told by the NFL that Ray Rice was suspended without pay for two games. Last Monday, after the video tape of Mr. Rice hitting his wife in an elevator became public, the Ravens terminated his contract.

Sometimes, while churning out the numbing prose that regularly fills this space, I'll take a break from the word processor.Often I end up riding the elevators in my office building. Other writers drink many cups of strong coffee or take long walks for inspiration; I like to ride up and down in a small, tomb-like cubicle with a bunch of nervous strangers until the muse whispers in my ear.I'll tell you this: You meet all kinds on the elevator. As I happen to work for a newspaper, the number of nerdy, pallid and badly dressed individuals stepping on and off is incredible.

Let me say this about elevators: When those doors slam shut and we're hurtling through the bowels of a building and I'm squashed next to some junior account executive reeking of Drakkar Noir while a string version of "Penny Lane" echoes from the speakers, I am about this close to a full-scale freak-out.Men don't like to admit to a fear of elevators, of course. If you ask a man what scares him, he'll come up with something suitably vague ("I dunno, the future scares me . . .") before snapping his head back to the Knicks-Celtics game on TV.Or else he'll bark: "Me?

Several people, including a pregnant woman, were stuck for about an hour yesterday on an express elevator in the World Trade Center at the Inner Harbor, a Fire Department spokesman said. No injuries were reported. Battalion Chief Hector L. Torres said the problem was reported about 5:45 p.m. by a passenger who dialed 911 on her cellular telephone. He said the elevator is supposed to go from the 23rd floor to the lobby without stopping. Mechanics and firefighters manually cranked the elevator up to the 23rd floor, where the passengers were evacuated, Torres said.

I did not resent it when the elevator doors refused to open. Such things happen every day in America.Last November, 11 people were trapped more than six hours in an elevator in a downtown Baltimore office building.Eleven people got off the elevator after the rescue, anyway. How many got on, and how many were consumed so that the others could live, we may never know.And all those people who bought my first book -- and dozens did -- will remember that I was once trapped in an elevator with Chicago Tribune columnist Bob Greene.

What I saw in the Ray and Janay Rice elevator tape was a man who was intoxicated and whose judgment was impaired ( "NFL investigation into Ray Rice video raises more questions ," Sept. 11). He was probably too drunk to lift his wife out of the elevator. Clearly, alcohol abuse can lead to domestic violence. But on the basis of one incident we do not strip a man of his humanity and throw the "domestic violence" playbook at him for all time. Relationships must be judged on an individual basis.

This Ray Rice incident has been a debacle. NFL management denies seeing the film of Mr. Rice striking his now wife in the elevator. Yet receipt of the video was apparently confirmed by an NFL employee. It is interesting how the NFL and the Ravens violated a basic principle of workplace discipline. It's called double jeopardy. Double jeopardy occurs when an employee has been disciplined for an infraction and then a few months later the management decides the disciplinary action was not severe enough and enacts a more severe penalty.

The "indefinite suspension" of Baltimore Ravens running back Ray Rice for knocking out his then-fiancée, now wife, in an elevator at an Atlantic City casino has again provoked debate about domestic violence and what the National Football League tolerates when it affects a star player. Ravens head coach John Harbaugh, who last spring testified to Mr.  Rice's good character, says a new video has "changed things. " Mr. Rice was initially suspended for two games after part of a video showed Mr. Rice dragging fiancée Janay Palmer from the elevator.

I appreciate Ravens owner Steve Bisciotti's thorough and sincere explanation on behalf the Ravens with respect the treatment of Ray Rice ( "Steve Bisciotti writes that Ravens should have done more to investigate Ray Rice video," Sept. 10). The role of the league in both the investigation leading to the suspension ruling in July as well the reaction after the interior elevator video was released would typically fall outside an individual owner's explicit purview and as such the understated references with regard the NFL will have to speak for themselves.

In the face of the near-overwhelming crises that our nation is experiencing on both domestic and international fronts, a sliver of profound encouragement exists in the fact that the tragedy of estimated 30 million human slavery and sex-trafficking victims is an issue of common cause and priority for the Obama administration and Congress. But their response must be heightened in the face of these horrific crimes against humanity. The State Department's Office to Monitor and Combat Trafficking in Persons (TIP)

Everyone has a remedy to beat the summer heat, from a trip to the pool to a snowball from a shack. At Midnight Sun, we prefer the tried, true and futile practice of complaining about unrelenting humidity over cold drinks at a comfortable bar. It accomplishes little besides a buzz, and that's just fine. On a recent Friday evening, Le Garage Beer Bar & Frites - which opened in May on Hampden's West 36th Street, better known as the Avenue - offered a low-key backdrop for such sweat-induced grumbling.

Robin Williams was one of the most original, daring and troubled comedians to ever work in television. When he first burst on the screen, you held your breath as you watched him dance out there on a manic tightrope of improvisation. But after a while, you stopped wondering how he did it and learned to just enjoy the high of seeing him soar. The 63-year-old comedian and actor was found dead Monday at his home in Tiburon, Calif., north of San Francisco. The cause of death is suspected to be suicide by asphyxiation, according to the Marin County coroner's office.
