Commentator Jonathan David Farley writes that Central American children crossing our borders should be deported immediately ( "#Sendthemback," July 22). I have only written a response to an editorial once before, but I thought I needed to take it upon myself to respond. Being 13, I suppose most adults with Mr. Farley's mindset wouldn't think that a girl my age would know much about the topic or even really care about what's happening at all. But I will tell you this: I'm responding to your letter not to be hurtful or judgmental but only to offer an opposing view.

Mary Patricia O'Conor Farley, the daughter of a Maryland governor who became a social worker and mother of five, died Wednesday of lung cancer at her Homeland apartment. She was 83. Born the middle of five children in an Irish-Catholic family in Guilford, she moved to the governor's mansion in Annapolis at the age of 13 when her father, Herbert R. O'Conor, took office. At age 16, at the outset of World War II, she was asked to christen a Liberty ship at the Bethlehem Steel shipyard, she recalled in a 1991 interview in The Sun. "It was a windy day, and I wore a fur jacket over my new dress," she said.

David Spade of "Just Shoot Me" tells Playboy that late comedian and best friend Chris Farley always seemed vulnerable to tragedy. "Of our group -- Chris Rock, Adam Sandler, me, Chris -- we all knew Farley was the funniest," Spade says. "He had so many different ways of being funny that we didn't. He was always bigger and goofier and more committed than any of us. But, Farley was the one we thought something might happen to -- like a guy walking through heavy traffic. It was nerve-racking.

Three banners hang from the wall in the wrestling room at Kenwood. One lists the school's state champions, another honors the school's Baltimore County champions and a third commemorates a junior varsity county championship. At first, that third banner embarrassed Nyonbou "Boo" Farley. He doesn't like to call attention to himself. But two years later, he knows how much it means. After finishing second in the Baltimore County championships last week, Farley's 30-2 record in the 160-pound weight class earned him the top seed in this weekend's Class 4A-3A North regional tournament with a chance to earn a berth in the state championship on March 1-2 at the University of Maryland's Cole Field House.

He takes the No. 13 bus, transfers to the 54, then the 53, grabs breakfast at the kosher Dunkin' Donuts on Reisterstown Road and walks to work at the kosher supermarket two blocks north.

For the first time since taking office five years ago, Gov. Martin O'Malleycommuted the sentence of a Maryland inmate serving life for murder - that of Mark Farley Grant, a Baltimore native who has been incarcerated for 29 years. In commuting Mr. Grant's sentence last month, the governor made no comment about the 44-year-old inmate's credible claim of innocence. A report that made the case for Mr. Grant's wrongful conviction in a 1983 street shooting went from the University of Maryland School of Law to the governor's office four years ago. It was either ignored or discounted.

In a week in which No. 1 Calvert Hall went 5-1 - including games against nationally ranked teams and a trip to Florida - the junior outfielder stood out. He went 11-for-18 (.611) for the week with two home runs, four doubles, 10 RBIs and five runs scored. Against Don Bosco (N.J.), ranked No. 4 nationally, he went 2-for-4, with a two-run homer as Calvert Hall rallied from a 5-1 deficit to win 9-8. He was 2-for-3 with a double in a loss to Archbishop McCarthy (Fla.), which was ranked No. 1 in a number of preseason national polls.

Since his arrest as a young teenager 29 years ago, Mark Farley Grant has never wavered: He did not kill Michael Gough that winter night in West Baltimore. On Thursday, Gov. Martin O'Malley signed an executive order commuting the sentence of Grant and a Washington, D.C., woman also serving life for murder — the first time O'Malley has used the power during his tenure. Grant's attorney hopes he will walk out of prison before Christmas, "if not long before. " O'Malley "had not to this point granted any clemency requests, so I am extremely grateful to him for exercising his ability to do so in Mark's case," said Renee M. Hutchins, who runs the law clinic at the University of Maryland's Carey School of Law. "I'm firmly convinced of Mark's innocence, so I could not be more delighted.

Gov. Martin O'Malley is expected to commute the sentence of a Baltimore man serving a life sentence for murder, using that power for the first time during his tenure. Mark Farley Grant's attorney Renee M. Hutchins confirmed Thursday that she had been notified of O'Malley's decision. The O'Malley administration declined to comment, but an announcement was expected this afternoon. "[The governor] had not to this point granted any clemency requests, so I am extremely grateful to him for exercising his ability to do so in Mark's case," Hutchins said.

When Renee Hutchins, the University of Maryland law professor, got her client on the phone Thursday afternoon and told him the news — that the governor was going to commute his life sentence — Mark Farley Grant was "largely speechless and completely stunned. " Hutchins said she will visit her client at the state prison in Hagerstown on Monday. By then, Grant should have a complete understanding of what's happening: freedom after nearly 30 years in prison, but no exoneration and no pardon.
