Some years back, I found a letter in my mailbox at The Sun addressed to Jeanne Moreau, the iconic French actress of the 1950s and '60s, in Paris - a rather glamorous and mysterious missive, given that the bulk of my correspondence tends to come from PR people or prisoners. But the international intrigue was short-lived. It was just a returned letter, popped by the mail guy into my slot (only in the newsroom is Jean Marbella the closest thing to Jeanne Moreau) rather than into the slot of the person who actually sent the letter.

Greg Smiith, a former executive with Goldman Sachs, became a hero yesterday to workers worldwide, as well as to everyone fed up with fat-cat bankers. His resignation, published in an op-ed in the New York Times, explained that he was leaving the banking giant after nearly 12 years because it lost its way in a big way: “I knew it was time to leave when I realized I could no longer look students in the eye and tell them what a great place this was to work. When the history books are written about Goldman Sachs, they may reflect that the current chief executive officer, Lloyd C. Blankfein, and the president, Gary D. Cohn, lost hold of the firm's culture on their watch.

Breland scored his 1000th last Friday at Hammond with a 13-point effort in a losing cause. He entered the game needing 12 points. Breland then scored 27 in a losing effort against Mount Hebron on Tuesday, lifting his current total to 1,028 points - third on the all-time Glenelg list behind Greg Smith and Todd Smith.

Immediately after the San Diego Padres acquired third baseman Gary Sheffield from the Milwaukee Brewers, former Oriole Craig Worthington marched into general manager Joe McIlvaine's office and demanded a trade. The Padres told him they would try to accommodate him."Now that they have another third baseman, I'm no use to them," said Worthington, who hit his first home run of the spring earlier Friday. "I've got to play every day."I just don't know why they did this. At the very least, give me a good month into the season to see what I can do. They have no idea what I could do."

Building more roads is no way to address our traffic congestion Greg Smith's column "Baltimore area needs updated traffic plans" (Opinion Commentary, May 31) makes the oft-stated argument for building more highways -- exactly what you'd expect from the American Road and Transportation Builders Association, which Mr. Smith represents. Yet if transportation planning over the last 50 years had included more emphasis on mass transportation, light rail networks, subways, buses and downtown circulation vehicles, we might be satisfying our urban transportation needs with fewer highways, fewer massive parking facilities and streets more friendly to pedestrians and the businesses that serve them.
