In reference to The Sun's editorial ("Mixed signals," Sept. 1), it is my opinion that Maryland does not need a law about non-functioning traffic lights. Hawaii is loaded with intersections that are four-way stops with no traffic signal lights and some of these intersections are very busy. Hawaii drivers have no issues with these intersections without traffic signal lights. Visitors to Hawaii who drive catch on very quickly. Maryland's driver's handbook points out that driving has four main parts - looking and seeing, thinking and deciding, letting others know what you are going to do and doing it. As the handbook states, you look with your eyes but you see with your mind.

EVEN THE TITLE is chilling: "Human Resources Exploitation Training Manual." Cut out the word, "Resources" and exchange the word "Torture" for "Exploitation" and you are closer to the interpretation the Honduran regime gave to a 1983 U.S. handbook used in handling political prisoners.Fourteen years later, under pressure from a Freedom of Information request filed by The Sun in May 1994, the Central Intelligence Agency has released the training manual -- including this caveat penciled in shortly afterward:"The use of force, mental torture, threats, insults or exposure to inhumane treatment of any kind as an aid to interrogation is prohibited by law, both international and domestic.

Four local educators - including a two-time Baltimore mayoral candidate - are listed among endorsers of a black empowerment handbook that federal authorities say was written and distributed by the leader of a violent prison gang to spread its message. The most prominent is Andrey L. Bundley, who garnered 33 percent of the votes in a 2003 mayoral primary, ran again in 2007 and now oversees alternative education for the Baltimore school system. He is quoted on the book's back cover as giving "kudos" to Eric Brown, an alleged leader of the Black Guerrilla Family and the book's author.

Creating the ambience of a campfire with a fire pit is one of the hottest trends in backyard recreation. Jim Jarvis of Weatherford, Texas, owner of an online fire-pit accessories company, says the trend was sparked by the clay chimeneas that started showing up in Mexican import stores a few years back. Alex Bandon, multimedia editor of This Old House magazine, helped show readers how to build a fire pit from cast-concrete stone for about $500 in the September issue. "People are turning their yards into outdoor rooms, and a fire pit is better than a barbecue because it's generally circular, which makes it very social."

All these decades later, Cardinal William H. Keeler of Baltimore can recite from the small book he memorized in an elementary classroom. So can Carol Nevin "Sue" Abromaitis, a Loyola College English professor. So can thousands upon thousands of other Americans who attended Catholic schools or religious instruction: "Why did God make you?" is a question in the Baltimore Catechism, as Abromaitis quoted yesterday. "To know Him, to love Him, and to serve Him in this world and to be happy in the next" is the answer.

Maryland is offering a first-of-its-kind guidebook to help people make health and end-of-life decisions on behalf of a patient, a year after the death of Terri Schiavo, the brain-damaged Floridian who launched a national right-to-die debate. The authors hope that the guidebook will become a model for other states and help families avoid legal battles. "The court is one of the worst places for trying to resolve issues about difficult medical decisions," said Jack Schwartz, a Maryland assistant attorney general.
