Every news outlet you can think of has had something to say about Ray Rice. Plus one you might not think of. Cosmopolitan. On its website, the magazine famous for its naughty bedroom advice published a sad and searing commentary by author Roxane Gay on Janay Rice and domestic abuse. The appalling number of battered spouses - one in four women and one in seven men - has not moved the needle on this issue, she said, and she didn't think a video record of it would, either. Not exactly what you'd expect to hear from Cosmo.

This is for four women who are not here. It is for grandchildren who never existed and retirement celebrations that were never held. It is for Sunday dinners that were never prepared in homes that were never purchased. It is for children who were never born and fathers who never got to walk daughters down the aisle. It is for mortarboards that were never flung into the air, for first kisses that were never stolen, for dreams that ended even as they still were being conceived. This is for four little girls who died, 50 years ago today.

Reigning NFL MVP Adrian Peterson of the Minnesota Vikings has been criticized for his decision to play in Sunday's game against the Carolina Panthers despite the fact that a son - that he had only recently learned existed - had died of head injuries consistent with child abuse. Mr. Peterson, a running back known for his personal and professional toughness, said he never thought about not playing, and while some commentators criticized the decision, his teammates and fellow athletes rallied to his side, saying the man should be permitted to seek whatever solace he could at such a time.

Five years ago, four grandmothers marched into the mayor's office with children in tow. They said their Edgewood neighborhood needed a new community center to replace the shack where kids didn't have enough room to play pingpong and pool at the same time. The grandmothers wouldn't take no for an answer. Yesterday, the determined women joined Mayor Martin O'Malley in opening the 5,700-square-foot Edgewood Lyndhurst Recreation Center in West Baltimore, the first such center built in the city since 1975.

New to Baltimore, Johns Hopkins University freshman Raegan Hensley and her parents were headed to Target on Thursday to buy supplies, including pepper spray and a pocket knife. And that was before they heard about the armed robbery of four female students late Wednesday night next to the Homewood campus. News of the holdup, in which no one was hurt, reinforced her parents' desire to boost Hensley's defenses. "Obviously we're doing the right thing," Greg England said, standing outside Wolman Hall dormitory, where blaring music and bunches of balloons gave a party feel as new students moved in. While Hensley found the robbery alarming, the 18-year-old from Nashville, Tenn., added: "I knew I was going to Baltimore.

Why does Ray Lewis continue to spout this nonsense about God rooting for him over every other NFL team he plays ("Ravens Q&A with Mike Preston ," Jan. 22)? Has he spoken to God? Does God favor him because he has six kids by four women, none of whom he is married to? Does God just not think Tom Brady is as holy as Ray Lewis? Please enlighten me Ray: What makes you the chosen one? Scott Jackson

When I heard about the deadly incident of domestic violence involving the Kansas City Chiefs linebacker Jovan Belcher, my first thought was what a tragedy ("Kansas City Chiefs player Jovan Belcher kills girlfriend, himself," Dec. 1). That thought quickly led me to wonder if the NFL would now start talking about domestic violence. But it doesn't look good so far. On ESPN's NFL "Sunday Countdown," all the talk was about remembering what a great guy and player Belcher was. Only Tom Jackson made the point that he was more concerned about the girlfriend and the child left behind than about Belcher, who was a murderer.
