It's more because on Friday I picked up a map of the future Baltimore Regional Rail System, a dazzling if at this point mostly fictional depiction of a multi-colored, many-tentacled thing that would ferry passengers to all manner of hither and yon in the greater metro area.

I am very much in agreement with letter writer Jake Savage's view that Veolia puts profits before people ("Veolia's track record raises concern over city water rates," Aug. 20). Veolia is a multinational French company with connections to Israel through its subsidiaries Veolia Transdev, Veolia Environnement and Veolia Water Services. These Israeli subsidiaries profit from the illegal Israeli occupation of Palestinian lands. They provide services to the Israeli Ministry of Defense and provide transportation services from which Palestinians are excluded.

CHICAGO - President Bush signed the $286.5 billion transportation bill yesterday, saying it would ease traffic congestion throughout the United States, create hundreds of thousands of jobs and impose stricter vehicular safety standards that will save lives. But critics said the legislation was stuffed with unnecessary and expensive projects that benefited only members of Congress seeking hometown support. Maryland will receive $2.9 billion in highway funding and more than $900 million in designated mass transit funding.

Eric Rozenman, of the Committee for Accurate Reporting in the Middle East, criticizes The Sun for treating as equivalent two atrocious crimes, the murder of three Israeli teenagers and the payback murder of a Palestinian teenager ( "False equivalence," July 11). But there is one equivalence that The Sun did not mention and which Mr. Rozenman also ignores. Both crimes took place, not in Israel, but in Israeli-occupied territory beyond the Green Line.

The large number of new federal jobs expected to move to the Fort Meade area should provide the impetus for an extension of the Washington Metro's Green Line to Baltimore-Washington International Thurgood Marshall Airport, says one area lawmaker. If the line were extended to BWI, it would result in a connection between the Washington and Baltimore mass transit systems. Currently, Baltimore's light rail system goes to BWI, but the D.C. subway stops in Greenbelt, about 20 miles away. Sen. John A. Giannetti, a Democrat who represents Prince George's and Anne Arundel counties, wants to remedy that.

BEIRUT, Lebanon - Growing up in the middle of a civil war, with his city turned into a battlefield, bullets flying, neighbors disappearing, Yaser Abun-Nasr made sense of it as well as a 10-year-old boy could. He collected bullets. Hundreds of bullets. Probably a thousand before he tired of it. He learned the rhythm of war, how the shelling would start in the evening when the fighters got home from work, how that was the time for children to stop playing and go home and take cover. He grew up knowing children should not have to live like that.

JERUSALEM -- In their latest dispute over the building of new Jewish settlements, Israel and the United States have focused attention on a border that remains crystal clear in international diplomacy despite Israel's concerted efforts to erase it on the ground.In recent weeks Secretary of State James A. Baker III and Israeli Foreign Minister David Levy have given new importance to the Green Line, the border dividing Israel from the territories itcaptured in the 1967 Six Day War, specifically where it divides the city of Jerusalem.

Baltimore kicked off its newest version of free downtown bus service Monday morning as the Charm City Circulators began service on its Orange Route from Hollins Market to Harbor East via downtown. Making one of her last public appearances before her resignation takes effect next month, Mayor Sheila Dixon hailed the circulator – which uses hybrid diesel-electric buses to reduce emissions -- as a way to reduce single-operator vehicle traffic downtown. "It's going to be cleaner and greener and it's really going to help us move downtown," she said at a news conference at the Convention Center.

State Transportation Secretary Robert L. Flanagan said yesterday that he has directed department officials to begin studying a possible extension of the Baltimore Metro, which ends at Johns Hopkins Hospital, to the Beltway northeast of the city. Flanagan told the city's House delegation yesterday that he believes the subway's Green Line could be extended beyond Morgan State University, which would have been the eastern terminus of the subway under previous plans. The transportation secretary said an extension to the Baltimore Beltway would attract riders.

What if a major institution was interested in relocating its headquarters to Maryland, bringing with it 11,000 good-paying jobs and the need for thousands of additional subcontractors? Would we do everything we could to seal the deal? That's exactly the situation playing out right now, as the Federal Bureau of Investigation seeks a new home to replace an outmoded behemoth that consumes a valuable block of downtown D.C. real estate. The clear best choice is in Greenbelt in Prince George's County, and everyone who lives in Maryland should be in favor of that move.

The Maryland Public Service Commission's ongoing review of the proposed merger of Constellation Energy Group and Exelon Corp. has uncovered numerous pros and cons for the Baltimore-area consumer, from the loss of a corporate headquarters to the proposed one-time $100 credit on consumer bills. Much more testimony remains to be heard. But if there's one wrinkle to emerge from last week's hearings that demands a PSC response, it's this: Exelon appears interested in investing more in Maryland-based renewable power.

Baltimore added a third line to its free Charm City Circulator service Tuesday, with the launch of the new Green Route at Johns Hopkins Hospital. The Green line will run from Hopkins Hospital through Fells Point and Harbor East before heading north to City Hall and the Fallsway. It will then head back to Hopkins along the same route. The Green joins the east-west Orange Route, launched in January 2010 as one of the last acts of Mayor Sheila Dixon's administration, and the north-south Purple Route, which got its start later that year.

You keep hearing about the American love affair with private vehicles, but the reaction to the Feb. 12 Getting There column suggests many motorists would love to jilt the family car if effective alternatives were available. More than a dozen e-mails responded to a report on a little-known seven-day public transit link between Baltimore and Washington. As usual, readers were able to add new layers of useful information. Others just sent a box of much-appreciated ego candy. "Thank you so much for this article," wrote Catriona M. K. MacLeod, a professor at the College of Notre Dame of Maryland.

MOGADISHU, Somalia -- The two major rival clan leaders i Somalia have agreed to abolish the so-called Green Line dividing their forces in this capital and to allow U.S. troops to occupy the entire city, it was announced yesterday.The pact presages an increase in the presence of U.S. forces in north Mogadishu and a more aggressive attitude by the U.S.-led, United Nations-sponsored force here toward confiscating heavy weapons."I think you will see in the next several days the removal of all heavy weapons from north Mogadishu and the removal of all vestiges of the Green Line," said a senior U.S. official who had a hand in setting up the talks between warlords Ali Mahdi Mohamed and Gen. Mohamed Farah Aidid.
