The Baltimore branch of the National Association for the Advancement of Colored People is asking for volunteers, and particularly men, to help distribute reward fliers on Saturday following a recent string of rapes in the city. "This could be our mother, sister, daughter, grandmother, niece, aunt - you get the message," branch President Marvin L. Cheatham wrote in an e-mail. He promoted a $2,000 reward for information leading to an indictment in the rapes. Organizers plan to gather at noon on Saturday at Knox Presbyterian Church at 1300 N. Eden St. - Matthew Hay Brown

Erin Sharp arrived at Baltimore-Washington International Thurgood Marshall Airport a little less than two hours before her 9:40 a.m. flight to San Diego on Sunday, timed so that her 11-month-old son would zonk out on the plane and they would arrive home with the afternoon to spare. Instead, Sharp wouldn't leave the Anne Arundel County airport for another nine hours, she said, after an enormous ticketing line for Southwest Airlines caused her and other passengers to miss their flights and the airline couldn't immediately get her onto another.

The fake fliers are circulating throughout the city, according to statement from the Housing Authority of Baltimore City. The fliers tell people to bring pay stubs, Social Security information and proof of income to the housing office to apply for a program that actually ran out of money last year. "These claims are not true," the statement from the housing authority says.

Richard Dunn was alone overnight in Las Vegas' McCarran airport, so he did what any bored passenger would do: He produced a five-minute music video featuring Celine Dion's “All By Myself.” He told the Las Vegas Weekly that he procured a roll of luggage tape from someone at a ticket counter and taped his iPhone to the pole of a wheelchair for the selfie shots at the Vegas airport. “Then I would put it on the moving walkway for a dolly shot,” Dunn wrote on his Vimeo page , the Weekly reported.

As the chart from Congressional Quarterly below shows, Congress is usually unpopular with the American public. Even in 1974, the Year of Watergate and public outrage at the presidency, slightly less than half of Americans approved of Congress. Last month the figure was 29 percent. It will probably go down the next time pollsters ask, the public having been reminded so blatantly of congressional imperiousness by the Senate's voting to keep its free airport parking.Free airport parking is a small matter.

Two East Baltimore pizzerias were closed last week by city health officials who found they repeatedly violated a ban on distributing fliers to residences and failed to pay their fines. The food permits of the two carryout restaurants, both named Nephew's Pizza, were suspended for five days, a period that ended Friday. "It's a good first start. It sends a message," said City Councilman Jim Kraft, who introduced the 2006 bill that banned distribution of commercial fliers to homes.

A Baltimore County councilman wants to curtail unsolicited advertising circulars, claiming the papers litter neighborhoods and can eventually clog area waterways. Councilman John Olszewski has drafted a bill that prohibits circulars from being dropped off at homes in the county. The County Council is expected to vote Monday on the proposal. If passed, the law would take effect in 45 days. The law will not apply to U.S. Postal Service deliveries or those by a private mail service. "Our streets and stream beds are denigrated with trash," he said.

Travelers who sign-up and qualify for the program are allowed to move through security without dealing with some of the hassles associated with airport security — such as taking off shoes, belts and jackets, removing small lotions or other hygiene items from carry-on luggage and removing laptops from cases.

Johns Hopkins University sophomore Ely Manstein wasn't sure what to make of the flier that Charlotte Zarzar handed him as he was walking along North Charles Street between classes Sept. 3. Manstein, a biophysics major from Philadelphia, studied the card-shaped flier from the Baltimore Metropolitan Council, which is trying to raise public awareness of pedestrian and bicyclist safety as part of its annual Street Smart campaign.

They walked past the vacant, shuttered storefronts in Old Town Mall - past the faded signs for Old Towne Pharmacy and Ayrdale Variety. They walked through a basketball game on North Bond Street, meeting with surprised faces as the players broke it up to talk. And then the group of about 60 men wearing black T-shirts - who organized their walk Friday night in an effort to do something about violence in Baltimore - walked up to Dominic Inman. The 39-year-old was standing in a walled-in back porch when he saw the group approach.

I was frankly "flabbergasted" (and I haven't used that word in a long time!) when I viewed the opinion pages of the March 7 Columbia Flier. I counted nine letters in support of Ms. Maria Santo's extremely anti-abortion letter which appeared in the Feb. 28 edition of the Flier.  And how many letters taking the opposing pro-choice view appeared in the opinion pages of the March 7 Flier? None!  Zilch! Nada!  Imagine that! I'm left to assume that either 1) the editors at the Flier are "cherry-picking" the letters to the editor to push a particular bias or agenda on the abortion issue;  2)
