I agree with Christopher Winslow's letter decrying the attempt to reinstitute Baltimore City's speed cameras ( "Baltimore should not resurrect speed cameras," Aug. 26). They have never been about safety, only revenue. If nothing else, they offer perverse incentives to our esteemed politicians, who seem delighted to take money from citizens and visitors and send a good chunk of it to out-of-town vendors. I've not seen a shred of evidence that the cameras serve their intended purpose.

— The father of the American teen who was allegedly beaten by Israeli police last week has filed a formal complaint against authorities there, advocates said Tuesday, and relatives in Maryland demanded that he be allowed to return to the United States. Fifteen-year-old Tariq Abu Khdeir was visiting family in East Jerusalem when a cousin was abducted and burned to death last Wednesday. The killing came in apparent retaliation for the abduction and deaths of three Israeli teens last month.

For the first time in two decades, Baltimore County doesn't have a favorite son or daughter in the governor's race. All the more reason why candidates seeking Maryland's top office are fighting for the votes of county residents. "Baltimore County is going to be critical because it's the third-largest pool of Democratic votes," said John T. Willis, a high-profile Democrat and author of a book on Maryland politics. On the Republican side, Helen Delich Bentley, who represented the county in Congress for a decade, has no doubt of its importance in her party's primary.

I was not surprised to see Gov. Martin O'Malley fail to honor the state obligation to provide annual funding to the State Pension Plan to restore it to fiscal stability ( "Franchot, Kopp fight transfer of pension money," Feb. 26). It is pretty consistent behavior. What has amazed me is that teachers associations, including the state organization, MSTA, have lined up in support of this fiscally destructive move, despite the impact on the future welfare of their membership. The excuse given is that, without the pension plan dollars, education funding would have to be cut at the state level, impacting, for one thing, teacher salaries.

A person works hard for many years to achieve a pension for retirement. It's scary to hear that Gov. Martin O'Malley wants to divert $100 million from the state pension fund for next year's budget and to make this a permanent happening. Thankfully, Treasurer Nancy K. Kopp and Comptroller Peter Franchot appeared before the Senate to state how this withdrawal can affect the state's overall credit rating of the state pension money and what the withdraw can do to pension benefits and other matters ( "Franchot, Kopp fight transfer of pension money," Feb. 26)

A million dollar second-tier ticket was sold at 7-Eleven, at 25 Eastern Boulevard, according to a news release from the Maryland Lottery and Gaming Control Agency.

Having seen every Fred Astaire movie, I'm qualified to say that not once did Fred Astaire grab his crotch. It's possible that he grabbed his crotch in the privacy of his home or dressing room. But that would be of no concern to the public.I mention this because Michael Jackson, the alleged super-duper star of show biz, has been described by many dance critics as being the Fred Astaire of his generation.While I'm no expert on dancing, I watched Jackson perform during half time of the Super Bowl, and I saw little that reminded me of Astaire, other than being skinny.

Normally, I get neither sad nor particularly sentimental when celebrities die. But I'm really bent out of shape about Philip Seymour Hoffman's death Sunday from an apparent heroin overdose. According to friends, Mr. Hoffman had been living drug-free for more than two decades until recently relapsing. His death is a reminder that even a demon suppressed for a long time is never fully exorcised and may, at some point, burst forth with an arresting potency - an apt description, as it were, of so many of Mr. Hoffman's most memorable on-screen performances.
