As the New England Patriots were turning the game into a rout with two late defensive touchdowns, wide receiver Torrey Smith sat on an otherwise empty bench, surveying a scene that no Raven could fathom. M&T Bank Stadium was just about empty by then, and the signs of resignation were everywhere. In a game they knew they had to win to control their playoff future, the Ravens hadn't just been beaten by the Patriots. They had been routed, overwhelmed and embarrassed, a 41-7 blowout qualifying as their most lopsided home loss in team history and worst defeat under coach John Harbaugh.

BGE customers may not be thrilled with the news of the last two weeks. On Dec. 13, the Public Service Commission approved not only gas and electric distribution rate increases for the utility but it also took the unprecedented step of allowing the company to add a surcharge to residents' bills to cover future grid reliability initiatives. And on Tuesday, the Obama administration announced plans to auction the rights to build offshore wind turbines off the Ocean City coast, a project that would add yet another surcharge to Marylander's monthly electric bills.

Baltimore County Superintendent Dallas Dance should have sought the school board's approval before taking a consulting job with a company that had a contract with the system, board President Lawrence Schmidt said Tuesday night. Schmidt said in a statement that the board has directed Dance to let members know in advance of any proposed consulting work in the future. The board has reviewed Dance's contract and the school system's ethics policy and has found that "there is no indication that Dr. Dance's performance as superintendent was in any way adversely impacted" by the consulting, according to Schmidt.

When Daniel Harper's 9-year-old son, Daniel Jr., made his first youth football all-star game last year, the younger Harper proudly wore his jersey, but didn't get it very dirty on game day. "They had these kids pay money, they gave them a jersey, and the kids stood on the sideline," said Harper, a strength and conditioning coach at Friends. "His experience last year is what fueled me.

It seems to me that the Save the Trees Alliance, the group of Mount Vernon residents who are fighting the replacement of trees in Mount Vernon Square, aren't seeing the forest for the trees ("Group fights to stop tree removal at Mount Vernon Place," Nov. 29). What the alliance seems to overlook is the big picture of what is planned. Starting with just the north and south squares, the Mount Vernon Place Conservancy's plans include newly engineered soils that allow for better drainage and resist compaction, an automated irrigation system, large underground concrete vaults that contain tree roots and allow for better drainage, on-site underground rainwater collection tanks, new lighting and electrical power supply lines, new plumbing lines for the fountains and the restoration of sculptures, fountains, stairs, marble balustrades and other park amenities.

There are several serious and potentially dangerous parts of what CA and the new Inner Arbor [IA] corporation plan to do in Symphony Woods. One is that they jettisoned the already approved plans for Symphony Woods Park in favor of a much more costly and building-heavy development plan. In fact, as of last viewing, they essentially plan to leave the woods as is, even though everyone agreed years ago that the woods were in need of some work to convert them into a beautiful and inviting park.

The most important website last weekend and in weeks to come -- on which the hopes and fears of countless Americans are focused (and the president's poll ratings depend) -- is not HealthCare.gov. It's Amazon.com. Even if and when HealthCare.gov works perfectly, relatively few Americans will be affected by it. Only 5 percent of us are in the private health-insurance market to begin with. But almost half of Americans are now shopping for great holiday deals online, and many will be profoundly affected -- not because they get great deals, but because their jobs and incomes are at stake.

Josh Cohen says he was at the sink doing dishes when his mind began to wander. His thoughts landed on Annapolis' failing dam at Waterworks Park. Should it be repaired? Should it be breached to allow water to flow through into a stream? As he contemplated the options, it suddenly dawned on him: The dam isn't something he needs to worry about any more. "It hit me," Cohen recalls. "I'm not going to be mayor. " After 12 years in public office, the last four as mayor of Annapolis, Cohen will leave office Monday as Mike Pantelides is sworn in as the capital city's next mayor.
