CRIMINALS who strap on weapons each day in Baltimore and Prince George's County must now reckon with U.S. Attorney Thomas M. DiBiagio and Project Exile, the sharply focused antigun program that has worked well in Richmond, Va., and elsewhere. Mr. DiBiagio's conversion to the belief that federal power is needed at the local level will surely be welcomed by Gov. Robert L. Ehrlich Jr., who had urged Mr. DiBiagio to get involved. Under Exile's provisions, Mr. DiBiagio will take "well-developed cases" of gun possession involving suspects with prior violent felony or drug convictions.

Bomb bomb bomb, bomb bomb Iran ... Or as Mitt Romney put it, playing the irresponsible-lunatic game convincingly enough to become the leading Republican presidential candidate: "If we re-elect Barack Obama, Iran will have a nuclear weapon. " The consensus congeals: Our next war must be with Iran. A report issued by the U.N.'s International Atomic Energy Agency, which The New York Times called "chillingly comprehensive" (though this is debatable), stoked this long-simmering agenda.

When Baltimore police arrested Darryl Harcum, he was charged with possession of a stolen gun and some marijuana. In state court, Mr. Harcum would have been looking at a mandatory five-year sentence. But federal prosecutors took the case as part of their Exile program, and Mr. Harcum is now serving nearly 19 years in a federal prison. U.S. Attorney Rod J. Rosenstein's interest and investment in the program is paying off, for communities in Baltimore and elsewhere: Defendants with a history of gun crime or violence are doing serious time.

GOV. ROBERT L. Ehrlich Jr.'s determination to change Baltimore's murderous gun culture deserves the strongest possible support -- particularly from U.S. Attorney Thomas M. DiBiagio. The new governor is proposing legislation that would give Maryland a version of Project Exile, the anti-gun effort used to advantage in Richmond, Va. He also plans a gun violence summit at which he will ask businesses to support a public declaration of Maryland's commitment to end the killing on Baltimore streets.

WASHINGTON - Memo to: President Bush From: A pro-American Arab leader Dear Mr. President, I and my colleagues from the Arab world and Turkey share your view that Saddam Hussein is lying, has not complied with the United Nations and must go. But is an American invasion the only way to remove him? Would you consider a deal for his exile? I ask because we have been getting mixed signals. Your defense secretary seemed to endorse the idea, but others suggest to us that we shouldn't even bother.

Kent McKenzie's "The Exiles," a 1961 documentary about American Indians living in the Bunker Hill section of Los Angeles, plays just three times this week at the Charles: at noon tomorrow, 7 p.m. Monday and 9 p.m. Thursday. And that's a shame because it's more beautiful and invigorating than any film in town except "The Curious Case of Benjamin Button." An unheralded milestone in independent filmmaking, it achieves the nuances and sardonic vitality of Edward Hopper's paintings -- and this film does so without the benefit of color, in exquisitely gritty black and white.

AMMAN, Jordan - Najim Abid Hajwal thought he would be back in Baghdad by now. The 49-year-old businessman fled Iraq after a worker in one of his factories warned that his name had appeared on a local hit list. He needed no convincing: By then, he says, two of his sons had narrowly escaped kidnappers, and a brother and a nephew had been shot to death. Still, he expected the exile to be brief. Packing up his wife and their seven children, he imagined a sojourn lasting weeks. That was four years ago. While violence in Iraq has declined in 2008, kidnappers, car bombers and other killers continue to menace Baghdad.

The Disappearance of the Outside:a Manifesto for Escape.Andrei Codrescu.Addison-Wesley.216 pages. $17.95. When we think about imagination, often we think only of it in relationship to art, and not life. That is a dangerous and debilitating practice, Andrei Codrescu declares in this polemical collection of essays. The sinewy plea underlying all the essays is his advocacy of the imagination as a moral and political force.According to Mr. Codrescu, in the East the atrophy of the imagination caused by the restrictions and repressions of the police state has led to brutality; and in the West the superficiality of consumer-oriented image-makers has led to narcolepsy.
