This is for Vanessa in South Florida. She emailed me a few days ago after spotting a bumper sticker that read: 2012 Don't Re-Nig. "Honestly," she wrote, "I don't know how to process my outrage, so I'm handing it off to you. I know that President Obama's race has always been an issue to many people, and perhaps I live a relatively sheltered life in Democratic-leaning Broward County, but I'm still stunned by the sentiment. I'm even more stunned, naive though that may be, by the fact that some people believe it's appropriate to flaunt that sentiment -- and that it's not a source of shame.

As the lyrics of everyone's favorite baseball anthem suggest, being a sports fan is really all about rooting for the home team. But what exactly does that mean when you live in a new town that is gradually becoming your home? When is it OK to pick up a new hometown team? As the Orioles have defied most odds this season and swept the city into an orange frenzy en route to an American League East title, I've been pondering these questions a lot. And there's one factor that truly complicates things.

You love how he plays and hate how he plays. You thrill to the rainbow jumpers and the fearless drives to the hole and the no-look passes. And you want to strangle him when he tries to force the ball inside or puts up a crazy shot with defenders draped all over him, as happens all too frequently. Oh, yeah, if you're a Maryland basketball fan, Greivis Vasquez drives you nuts. And maybe because of this, you end up over-analyzing everything about him. What's with the hair?

I am saddened that President Barack Obama, who rode to election promising to end wars, has once again essentially called on us to go to war ( "ISIS is not invincible," Sept. 9). I am also saddened that there is so little protest. This is so different than during the Vietnam War when the conscience of the American people and especially our youth rallied us to action that eventually led to peace. All this will have tragic consequences. The violence of terrorism cannot be eradicated by more violence.

Time is running out. I've got only a few more days to get over my man-crush on Peyton Manning. Won't be easy. Even during his perfunctory conference call with the media on Tuesday, I found myself wondering how anyone can pack so much smart and charming and successful into one human body. And he didn't really say anything all that interesting. "It's going to be a tough game here in Indy on Saturday," he said. "We know that, but it'll be two really good teams playing against each other."

A 20-year-old Harford County man accused of striking an off-duty Baltimore police officer in the eye with a glass beer mug was indicted by a county grand jury on hate crime and assault charges, according to the county state's attorney. James Aaron Kimble of Joppa was arrested May 6 after Detective Jerome Cook suffered significant injuries to his eye that doctors feared could cause him to lose his sight. County sheriff's deputies said Cook was returning home when he encountered Kimble and was struck in the eye. Kimble was yelling racial epithets when deputies arrived at the scene, comments which were captured on Cook's 911 call for help.

"Beyond Hate" is Bill Moyers as video pilgrim on a quest in search of moral enlightenment. As is almost always the case, watching Moyers' TV journey is a challenging and uplifting experience.The good challenge in "Beyond Hate," which airs at 9 p.m. on MPT (channels 22 and 67), is that Moyers and his producers seek out some of the most enlightened thinkers of our time to talk about hate.The most recognizable names include Jimmy Carter, Elie Wiesel and Nelson Mandela. They all have things to say that will force you to think hard about your own feelings.

Chicago -- C-SPAN made it possible to watch the recent Republican convention in Virginia, which chose the state candidates for this year's election. This show made the national Republican convention of 1992 appear like a scholarly seminar on economics. Fifteen thousand delegates -- far more than there were at the national convention -- gave us oratory and screams that made Pat Buchanan's appearance in Houston look pale.The religious extremism in Houston is generally thought to have hurt President Bush's chances of re-election.

WASHINGTON -- Today's music, comedy and literature are doing more than reinforcing unflattering racial and sexual stereotypes, minority leaders fear.Popular culture, they say, is teaching a generation of Americans it is OK to hate.The latest evidence they cite is the release this week of an annual study by the Anti-Defamation League of B'nai B'rith that shows anti-Semitic crime rose for a fourth consecutive year. It also found eight out of 10 people charged with hate crimes were under 21."

I love Sunday morning public affairs TV, and I had a chance today to be part of an animated discussion about why the public hates the press. Here's the video (below) from "Media Buzz" with me and Mediaite columnist Joe Concha as guests, and Howie Kurtz as host. I was not aware of the Gallup statistic Concha brought to the table about three out of four Americans trusting the press 40 years ago versus the sorry lack of credibility today. And when I find a way to go off on Chelsea Clinton and NBC News at about the five-minute mark, I want it duly noted that Kurtz introduced the topic -- not me. (But I thank him for it.)

The United States should end all aid to Israel. When the Palestinians look up in the sky and see fighter jets and helicopters dropping bombs, they see America ( "Israel strikes Gaza after militants resume rocket fire," Aug. 8). Those illegal settlements? Built by the American taxpayer. The blockade that obstructs aid? Sponsored by American taxpayers. It is no wonder that radical Muslims want to kill Americans. We are all in danger in this country mostly because the Israel lobby owns Washington.

IRVINE, Calif. - As he moves forward with his comeback, Michael Phelps can't always measure his progress the way he used to: in victories. Take the unusual position he found himself in Saturday at the Phillips 66 National Championships. The night before, he had lost by a whisker in the 100-meter butterfly, the race he has focused on most since coming out of retirement in April. Yet he had secured a place on the U.S. team for the Pan Pacific Championships this month in Australia. Phelps hadn't fretted over making a national team since he was 15 and seeking a spot in the 2000 Olympics.

Maryland's Republican Party has all but disowned candidate Michael Peroutka's bid to represent District 5 on the Anne Arundel County Council - as well they should ( "Arundel council candidate Peroutka says he won't cut ties with secessionist group," July 30). Secession is not only against federal law, it is disloyal and ought to be disavowed by every patriotic American. It was wrong in 1861, and it is wrong today. The designation of the League of the South, of which Mr. Peroutka is a member, as a hate group by the Southern Poverty Law Center?

It was a typical Saturday in Annapolis, and I was busy running errands. But as I pulled up to the stoplight at the intersection where Route 2 meets West Street, I saw demonstrators on both sides of the highway. They were waving American flags, carrying large signs and shouting at drivers to honk if they agreed. They were demonstrating against the Central American children crossing the Mexican border into the United States. The signs said the children were criminals and should be sent back where they came from.

I think I'm pretty. A sharp pang of embarrassment strikes me as I type these words. My heart rate elevates and a flush runs up my neck and blossoms across my cheeks. My first instinct is to go back and delete those incriminating four words, purging them as if they never existed. I figure the least I can do is qualify them. I want to pull out a grocery list of criticisms I have about how I look: I hate how my thighs brush together when I walk, I hate the softness of my belly, I hate the slight fuzz that rests along my upper lip, I hate the perpetual rosiness that splatters across my cheeks.

The Supreme Court ruled unconstitutional a St. Paul, Minn., ordinance forbidding cross-burning. Does this mean Maryland's two state laws forbidding such activity are also invalid? Probably not.What the court said was that governments may not forbid speech -- real or symbolic -- on the basis of its content. The First Amendment to the Constitution protects free speech. The St. Paul ordinance outlawed acts which "arouse anger, alarm or resentment in others on the basis of race, color, creed, religion or gender."

I'm getting real sick of this resurgence of hate groups and of individuals who espouse hate under the disguise of respectability.I'm talking about David Duke, a certain presidential campaign, the Ku Klux Klan's forays into Howard County in search of new members and now the distribution of a hate-filled newspaper in Columbia.Some of this hatred has been camouflaged by the use of "code words" to make it appear to be mainstream right-wing political rhetoric. But anyone with intelligence can see right through it.Thankfully,the people of Louisiana chose to see David Duke and his platform forwhat they really stood for. But this sort of thing is far from over,with another presidential election coming up soon.

Del. Kathleen Dumais said today that she continues to support Douglas F. Gansler for governor, but has strongly registered her disappointment with Gansler's campaign over a television ad she believes misleads the public about his primary opponent Anthony G. Brown. In the state attorney general's ad, a woman identified as “Anne” says she was sexually abused when she was 13. Looking at the camera, she says Brown -- the front-runner in the June 24 Democratic primary -- “went back on his word” to support sex abuse victims.
