Culture of violence pervades prisons The Sun's editorial "Mishandling evidence" (Dec. 20) sheds light on an area of significant need and concern - the need to end prison violence and change the culture that allows it to flourish. The end to prison violence will occur only with a commitment from the state - a commitment that was made on paper during the 2007 legislative session. Legislators voted to convene a Prison Violence Task Force charged with looking at this issue and submitting a preliminary report by Dec. 31. This task force has not convened its first meeting, and as a result, the deadline will come and go while the conditions that motivated the planned report remain unabated.

The Los Angeles Angels, one of the most aggressive suitors for Miguel Tejada in the past couple of years, still are looking for a bat, and now they have a vacancy at shortstop with yesterday's trade of Orlando Cabrera to the Chicago White Sox for pitcher Jon Garland. An industry source said yesterday that the Orioles and Angels have not had any significant discussions recently about Tejada, who is expected to be traded this offseason. However, another league source said the Angels would be interested in Tejada to potentially play third base if the club can't make a trade for Florida Marlins slugger Miguel Cabrera.

NOW HERE'S a little flash! Bill and Hillary Clinton have their eyes on the ball when it comes to 2008, but in the meantime, has anyone noted that they bought a piece of beach property in the Dominican Republic right next to the beautiful domain of designer Oscar de la Renta and his wife, Annette? Struggles pay off The Supremes -- Mary Wilson, Flo Ballard and Diana Ross -- used to sing "Nothing but heartaches ... nothing but heartaches," way back when. Heartaches by the number actually then came to all three women.
