On Tuesday, June 12, I sat on I-795 for 45 minutes with my engine turned off. The delay was not traffic related. It was not weather related. It was, however, to provide President Barack Obama an open, secure road for his motorcade to travel unimpeded from Greenspring Valley to the Inner Harbor. His trip was not to conduct the business of the people but rather to raise money to keep his job. This delay gave me much time to think about the Kabuki theater of security as perpetuated by the federal government; from the theater of the absurd as performed by the Transportation Security Administration (already much documented)

Sunday's cartoon by Kevin Kallaugher regarding Richard Cheney was right on ( "The Cheney tour," July 6)! Single-handedly behind the scenes, Mr. Cheney has wreaked more havoc than any other American citizen ever. In 1976, he met with three other Republicans and they started the movement that led to the marriage of corporate and congressional economic interests which have eliminated the distancing from corporate influence that is supposed to exist when congressional members are elected.

It was another Tribal Council blindside last week, and Kass isn't too happy to be on the other side of it. Sucks, doesn't it Kass? Trish gets it; Jefra threatened Tony, so he got rid of her. Kass doesn't like that she was left out, and flat out tells Tony that he's a jerk. Not a good move. Spencer is loving it. See, Kass is offended that Tony would side with Spencer and Tasha, since they've been openly trying to get rid of him, but as Tony points out, they haven't made him any promises, either.

Now that our lawmakers have failed to pass breed-neutral legislation that would overturn the court ruling that declared one breed of dog dangerous, thousands of Maryland voters and their pets will unfairly be affected ("General Assembly session ends in flurry of votes," April 9). We counted on legislators to right a wrong that was already causing a negative impact in homes and animal shelters in Maryland. This did not happen. The direct impact from the lack of compromise between our legislators will lead to more landlords burdened with the responsibility of determining a dog's breed and forcing tenants to choose between their home and their pets; more Marylanders having to give up their beloved pets; and an increase in abandoned pit-bull type dogs in already crowded animal shelters.

If it seemed like super storm Sandy triggered sinus problem, you're not crazy. It's likely people with sinus issues experienced worse symptoms as the storm made its way toward Baltimore, said Dr. Marc I . Leavey , an internist at Mercy Medical Center and Lutherville Personal Physicians. And it's all related to barometric pressure. Preliminary results from the National Weather Service showed barometric pressure in Baltimore fell to 964.4 millibars during the storm -  the lowest since at least 1930.

Kelvin Collins (Running back, Old Mill) The senior has 4.6 speed and set school records for yards rushing (1,656), touchdowns (23) and total points (140) in '99. Brandon Gulley (Lineman, Annapolis) The county's top two-way lineman uses his 6-3, 190-pound frame to create havoc (six sacks, 12 knocked down passes) on defense and is a superb pulling guard. Mike Pfisterer (Quarterback, North County) The four-year starter reads well, has a quick release and needs 1,712 passing yards and 23 TD passes to break state career records.

SAY THIS about Americans: We do what needs to be done. Six days after terrorists wrought previously unfathomable havoc on our largest city, we went back to work yesterday. Everywhere. Doing what we were doing before the tragedy. Workers returned to Manhattan's financial district. The stock market ticked again -- slower, but steady nonetheless -- aided by the Federal Reserve's half-percentage-point cut in interest rates. Much of the country's airline service resumed. Airport security has been tightened and travelers patiently waited their turn.

The Presidents' Day storm of 2003 that swept into Maryland and dumped 26.8 inches of snow on Baltimore - a record-breaker - caused a partial collapse of the B&O Railroad Museum roof on Feb. 17, wreaking havoc on its collection of historic locomotives and cars. It was this sickening sight that greeted us when my colleague Jacques Kelly and I made our way to the museum a day or two later through snow-rutted streets. There we met our friend, Courtney B. Wilson, the museum's executive director, who with his characteristic ebullience and optimism was trying desperately to put a good face on a dire situation.

The problem: A leak in Northeast Baltimore leaves inches of ice on Belair Road. The back story: Eugene Byrnes was worried about the babies. He lives about a block from the intersection of Belair Road and Woodlea Avenue in Northeast Baltimore, and for weeks, Byrnes has witnessed people struggling across the ice that has become a regular feature of the northwest corner on cold days. "The bus gets in there to load and unload passengers and has trouble getting out," Byrnes said.

Jarret Johnson senses it from opposing offensive linemen when they see Haloti Ngata standing in front of them. "There are times that you'll hear guys joking during TV timeouts, saying, 'Hey 92, why don't you go to the other side?' " the Ravens linebacker said. "There's a lot of truth to what they're saying. They don't want to deal with the big guy. He's a big, physical presence, and he tosses guys around. " That was obvious Sunday in Pittsburgh. Coming off his and the defensive line's worst performance of the season against the Cleveland Browns, the 6-foot-4, 350-pound defensive tackle sacked Steelers quarterback Charlie Batch on the game's first series and finished with a career-high 11 tackles, including two for losses, despite often being double-teamed.

"Stupid!" she shouted. "Idiot!" he yelled back.She glared at him, struggling to hold back her tears. He looked at her in total contempt.This wasn't a couple on the verge of divorce, just 9-year-old Matt and 7-year-old Reggie in the midst of one of their all-too-familiar brawls.To my embarrassment, they'd chosen an exceedingly public place for this latest tussle: in a crowd waiting outside a Los Angeles hotel for a tram up the hill to Universal Studios and the new CityWalk there. Reggie didn't even want to get on the tram if she had to sit anywhere near Matt.

A new city campaign urges tourists to "Find Your Happy Place in Baltimore." Dozens of butterflies unwittingly drawn into the campaign very nearly found their final resting place instead. The organization Visit Baltimore planned to release 19 dozen butterflies at the tourism campaign's launch today. People for the Ethical Treatment of Animals objected. "No animal should be treated like a living decoration," Lisa Wathne, PETA's captive exotic animal specialist told me Wednesday.

The news last week that Conan O'Brien was going to host a show on TBS starting in November was met with a ton of talk about late-night TV. But amid all the chatter, almost nothing was said about Jay Leno and his move back to late night on NBC — the action that sent O'Brien off on his journey to the land of basic cable. Could it have been just a few shorts months ago that the news media were filled with nonstop talk about the "Leno Factor" and how it was "killing" the late news on top-notch NBC affiliates across the country, including WBAL in Baltimore?
