Where was your 9/11 coverage? I'm sick of hearing about the Ray Rice video. What did people think he was doing in that elevator, knitting doilies? I don't have any respect for a man who puts his hands on a woman. Period. As for the NFL, one has to ask what type of league is this really? Later on, in your Sports section, my eyes fell upon this quote regarding the Ravens: "Another loss in the division, especially at home, could be devastating. " You have to be kidding me!

An email was forwarded to me announcing Wednesday night's reopening of Kaufman's Tavern in Gambrills. I gave Kaufmann's a call, and manager Daniel Carr confirmed that the sprawling restaurant would be open on Wednesday, Aug. 31, the first night since Hurricane Irene came through town and knocked Kaufmann's for a loop. Irene did a number on Kaufmann's, smashing a tree down on a car its lot and generally playing havoc with the expansive deck area that had been remodeled only this past spring.

At first, Baldwin Homes didn't build green. Then it dipped its corporate toe in - one home here, another there. Now the Gambrills company is constructing an entire green neighborhood. It's the story of U.S. home building writ small. Green accounted for 2 percent of the new-home market in 2005, according to a report by industry data provider McGraw Hill Construction. By last year it had ballooned to 23 percent - nearly a quarter. "I don't think green is a niche market anymore," said Michele A. Russo, director of green content at McGraw Hill Construction.

Your editorial about the performance of Maryland's health insurance website was interesting ( "Beyond the website," April 2). To say the launch will go down as one of the most expensive failures of governance in the state's history is being kind. Please name any other state failure that even comes close to this disaster in terms of taxpayer money. I suggest that this is by far the biggest failure ever - and that this failure of leadership at the highest echelons of our state government is being rewarded.

Shawn Pleffner, 24, took a lead off second base at the minor-league complex of the Washington Nationals at Viera, Fla., on a 72-degree day. The former Arundel High School standout was among a group of four top minor-league prospects working on leads on fly balls. "Get a secondary lead. Get a good one," shouted Gary Cathcart, an instructor in the Nationals' farm system. It might seem at first glance that Pleffner, a 6-foot-5, 225-pounder with the build of an NFL linebacker, would be better off just honing his skill at the bat. But learning to run the bases is among the tasks the first baseman faces on the east coast of Florida during spring training sessions that begin around 8 a.m. "A good example is Cal Ripken Jr. ," Pleffner said of the Orioles' Hall of Famer.
