THOSE WHO DOUBT the wisdom of returning Elian Gonzalez to his father and half-brother ought to look at the photographs of the family reunion. They show the 6-year-old happier than he has appeared since arriving on these shores after the death of his mother. The authenticity of these photographs is now beyond doubt, and so should be the necessity of the raid that brought Elian back to his father. Though the raid on Lazaro Gonzalez's Miami house is being criticized, there is no dispute about the professional skill with which it was carried out -- successfully and speedily.

Kids today, with their different music, outrageous fashion, strange slang and devil-may-care attitude: what's the world coming to? It's coming to the likes of Carley Bynion, a high school senior who has been making teddy bears to give to children unfortunate enough to have been involved in tragic situations. The 17-year-old from Bel Air, who attends John Carroll, started making the stuffed animals as part of a senior project designed to get students to do something that challenges their comfort zones.

There is serious confusion about the basis (legal or otherwise) for redefining an ancient human institution (marriage) to fit the social mores of 21st century society. The conservative view is that marriage as traditionally defined is an ancient human institution that predates civil society and therefore deserves the respect of the more recently established civil institutions that may support it; the more modern view, apparently shared by the governor and by a majority of the Maryland legislature, is that the term "marriage" can be redefined by an existing legislative majority without regard to that tradition.

Although Leonard S. Jacobson retired early from the Baltimore County Circuit Court, he wants to quash rumors that he's dying -- or running for county executive.Instead, the gregarious judge said, he was tempted off the bench three years before mandatory retirement to serve as a special master in the Family Law Settlement Court, helping parties entangled in divorce and custody cases work out their differences without a trial.It's the kind of grueling, difficult work many jurists dislike, but Judge Jacobson said he was always drawn to it."

If Judge Catherine Curran O'Malley feels like talking these days, she should probably spend some time with Sheila K. Sachs. Sachs and her husband, Stephen H. Sachs, were like the Judge O'Malley and Mayor Martin O'Malley of a generation ago. Even today, Sachs is a bigtime city lawyer, a specialist in family law - alimony, child custody, that sort of thing, and often represents the local celebrities when they wind up in divorce court. But in January 1979, she was a part-time attorney who was in the midst of an ethical conflict that would greatly influence her career.

Perhaps someday in the future, forensic psychiatrists and others will analyze the circumstances of last Friday's mass shooting near Santa Barbara, Calif. from medical records, family interviews and YouTube videos and determine definitively what was going inside the mind of suspected gunman Elliot Rodger. That he hated women was obviously a significant piece of the puzzle. Was it that anger that caused him to plan the rampage, post his manifesto on the Internet and ultimately kill six people and injure 13 before killing himself, or was that simply the delusion on which a suicidal 22-year-old became obsessed?

The Sun makes endorsements in the following races in Anne Arundel County: District 30-A Voters in this Annapolis area district have the rare privilege of being represented by incumbent House Speaker Mike Busch, and Democrats should avail themselves of the opportunity to nominate him for an eighth term.
