Aberdeen Mayor Mike Bennett's recent trip to Georgia to advocate on behalf of the Ripken organization as it tries to secure public financing of a stadium for a minor league ballclub in Augusta is one of the most ill-advised moves in his time in office. It wasn't a bad idea because the stadium in Aberdeen turned out to be a boondoggle. Quite the contrary, Ripken Stadium by itself has been a tremendous asset to the Aberdeen community and Harford County as a whole. In addition, the youth baseball complex and the Cal Ripken World Series have only increased the prestige of the city and the county and made them burgeoning baseball destinations for dedicated fans of the national pastime.

In the end, Georgian President Zviad Gamsakhurdia was a coward."I will hold until death," he declared on Christmas Day, foxholed in a bunker as his loyalists were trying to keep opposition gunners from taking over the government complex. Yesterday, he ignominiously fled in the cover of darkness to a neighboring republic after realizing he had lost a bloody struggle for power. "Not only the Georgia people but all the democratic forces of the world will celebrate this victory," a rebel commander declared.

Recent events in Georgia, a former Soviet republic on the shores of the Black Sea, underscore how quickly euphoria can turn into tragedy.In only seven months as president, power went so quickly into the head of Zviad Gamsakhurdia, a nationalist hero, that his former allies turned against him in a violent bid to oust him from office. Early Monday, the 52-year-old translator of Walt Whitman, Emily Dickinson and Allen Ginsberg slipped out of Georgia, leaving his loyalists to continue the bloody battle against the opposition.

At a time when the stability of Maryland's men's basketball program has been in question, Robert Carter may have provided the best form of support for embattled coach Mark Turgeon. The 6-foot-8, 247-pound power forward - considered one of the Atlantic Coast Conference's most promising big men before announcing plans to transfer - signed with the Terps on Friday. He then praised Turgeon for his vision and said he wasn't concerned about the fact that five scholarship players transferred from Maryland after the season “I feel like he's doing and they're doing what's best for the program,” Carter said of Turgeon, who just completed his third season at Maryland.

The principal of a celebrated Baltimore high school has pleaded guilty to defrauding the federal government of nearly $2 million he received in a previous job to feed disadvantaged children, but used instead for other purposes, including leasing luxury cars and buying jewelry. Between 2007 and 2010, federal prosecutors say, Frederick Douglass High School principal Antonio Hurt submitted documents to a federal program in which he intentionally misstated the number of children and meals eligible for reimbursement in day care centers he owned and operated in Georgia.

When Zviad Gamsakhurdia was elected Georgia's president Sunday, he was given the power to declare war, to institute martial law and presidential rule and to revoke or grant citizenship. These powers illustrate that the republic bordering Turkey is dead-serious in its attempt to secede from the Soviet Union. They also suggest that, unlike the calm and orderly Baltic republics, Georgia fully expects violence in its rebellion against the Kremlin.Bloodshed is a foregone conclusion with a leader like Mr. Gamsakhurdia.

I now live in Georgia, but I was born and raised in Aberdeen, Md., and I'm sick of our government. It lies to us all the time and forces stuff on us that we don't want. Obamacare is too expensive, and if you read between the lines it's the greedy taking care of the needy. The Affordable Care Act is the worst way to get people heath care. Hasn't the government learned that the minute you make something a law the price goes up and the service comes down?

'I told you so.' That's what I'm sure most of my Romanian friends would tell me about Russia's heavy handed assault on Ukraine - if they weren't so polite. Almost from the day I arrived in Bucharest in February 1998 (when Boris Yeltsin, not Vladimir Putin, was President of Russia), Romanians tried to convince me that the U.S. was naive about Russia. There was - and is - plenty of evidence to support their view. I remember particularly a Saturday in June 1999 as the war in Kosovo was ending.
