Just how much pain or trouble are you willing to go through to save money on holiday purchases? According to a survey from CouponCabin.com, consumers reported waiting in a mile-long line just to get into a store, standing in line one hour to check out and staying up for more than 24 hours last year to get deals. Another reported a woman grabbed a jacket out of the consumer's hand, and then another shopper grabbed the jacket and the pair ended up in a tug-of-war. My favorite: “A woman grabbed things out of my cart, flipped my cart and tried to take off. She wound up handcuffed to my cart after she was caught.” Nevertheless, the coupon site reported that 35 percent of adult shoppers will be heading out to the stores or purchasing gifts online this Black Friday.

Those stories you tell about your roommate from hell just might pay off. Live Baltimore is running a contest, offering a $100 prize package for the best worst roommate tale. A front-runner is Jennifer Anne Jobson, who talks about her freshman year roommate, who was sharpening a big knife the first time they met. One day, the girl -- who liked to eat fried chicken in bed -- took the knife to Jobson's mattress, some of her clothes, their rug and their bean bag chair. She also used it on a squirrel, which she left, dead, in Jobson's bed. Another person had a roommate that peed in the bathtub.

Have all those in the news media forgotten that soldiers follow orders without question and that all military graduates are commissioned officers with little or no experience in management? They do not know how to manage civilian employees who have union protection and question whether their orders fit their job descriptions ( "Md.'s House delegation demands fixes at Baltimore VA office from Shinseki," April 24). The problems with the Veterans Administration have been going on for more than 20 years.

Yesterday, I was stunned to hear of Owl Meat Gravy's death. I didn't know him - not really - but I felt like I did. Over the years, he contributed dozens of guest posts and hundreds of comments on Midnight Sun. He was an incredibly smart writer. Sometimes too smart. And he had a huge personality that occasionally rubbed people the wrong way. But Owl Meat, OMG, Owlie - whatever you want to call him, he had an unmistakable presence on Midnight Sun, as well as the rest of The Sun's website.

PUNTA GORDA, Fla. - The line seemed to form just as soon as the pair of women took seats behind two small desks in a parking lot next to the office of Peeples Agency. Joan Aucoin, who has worked for the real estate insurance agency for 22 years, reached over two packs of Doral cigarettes on her desk to grab another claim form, in a bin under a roll of paper towels. "OK, your total loss is ... ?" she asked an elderly man at the front of the line. "Everything," he responded. She and the rest of the small staff here would go on to hear stories like this all day yesterday.

Why are there so rarely positive news stories in your paper? The Sun never seems to follow-up with the uplifting, worthy stories but instead fills its space with politics and sports. You make sure to report every murder that happens, but you rarely acknowledge those who have accomplished good things in the city and county. Last week, for example, 20 people from Baltimore County were honored with "Outstanding Educator Awards" at a banquet at Martin's East. Yet you didn't even mention these great folks who are certainly worthy of a little congratulations and attention.

Baltimore City Councilman Robert W. Curran is tired of hearing about motorists whose cars were towed for reasons he finds ridiculous - for being parked outside the white lines in a supermarket lot, for instance, or at a fast food restaurant when the business was closed. So he's sponsoring legislation to spell out a narrow list of conditions for which a vehicle can be removed from private property. And he would cut the allowed towing fee by nearly half. "What they're doing is such a disincentive for people to come here and visit Baltimore," Curran said.

"I've made many painful mistakes in my life. I want my death to have some meaning. " -- Myrtle Snow "American Horror Story" wrapped its third season with a strong finale, focusing on themes of mortality and motherhood. The show got lost when it strayed from those ideas this year, often attempting to shock its audience, seemingly at the expense of cohesive plot and logic. But as the finale showed, when it wanted to, Coven could tell a compelling story, even without much of its trademark violence and gore.

"Eventually, everybody pays, everybody suffers. " -- Papa Legba In the last episode before its season finale, "American Horror Story: Coven" tightened its plot, while seemingly writing out three major players. For all of my complaints about its meandering storytelling and brutal violence, this is a show that knows how to tell a lean, sharp story when it needs to, and that was the case with "Go to Hell. " The brutal violence was still on display, but this was a fast-moving hour that set up the finale nicely.

Bill Tessendorf, the longtime Ravens trainer who retired last month, was recognized Monday night by the Ed Block Foundation as part of its sponsor appreciation kickoff dinner. It's an honor that touched Tessendorf because it came from an organization named after the longtime head athletic trainer of the Baltimore Colts. "I'm awestruck because the man that it's named after, I got to know and meet," Tessendorf said Monday night. "It also means I've been around for a long time. I'm speechless, really.

Sherria Young, a young blind woman from West Baltimore, has had problems with the Maryland Transportation Administration's Mobility van and cab service in the past - missed rides, drivers arriving without a car seat for her baby, jammed phone lines. But before July 1, when the MTA introduced a new management plan that was supposed to remedy the ills of the troubled transit system for the disabled, she had never been denied a ride entirely. That has happened twice this month - and Young thinks the agency has only succeeded in making a bad situation "terrible."
