Dr. Ben Carson doesn't need me, or anyone else for that matter, to defend him ("Dr. Ben Carson steps down as speaker at Hopkins graduation," April 11). His decision to withdraw as the commencement speaker at Johns Hopkins University was just another manifestation of his integrity. The same, unfortunately, cannot be said for those, including Medical School Dean Dr. Paul Rothman and the graduating students, who feel Dr. Carson went beyond the pale in his recent remarks about marriage. How dare he express his unequivocal, unvarnished, un-sanitized view that "marriage is between a man and a woman," and that no group " gets to change the definition.

I would like to respond to your editorial "A Junkyard Dog" (Feb. 23) pertaining to the issue of scrap metal dealers buying stolen metal. I am the president of a local 93 year old scrap metal company that buys metal from business, industry and government only. Our exposure to stolen metal is non-existent. However, I would like to address the issue in defense of the integrity of the majority of the scrap metal dealers in the Baltimore area who do engage in retail buying. I can say without reservation that the overwhelming majority of these companies are operated with the utmost integrity and do everything possible not to buy stolen metal and to cooperate with law enforcement agencies.

The Ravens and the NFL now have an integrity issue. The latest video showing Ravens running back Ray Rice knocking out his then-fiancee Janay Palmer in an Atlantic City casino elevator was released this morning and it raises a lot of questions about how the league could only suspend him for two games and why the team didn't do more. An NFL spokesman said that the league office had not seen the latest video until Monday morning. But I believe both the Ravens and NFL commissioner saw this video of Rice.

Leonard Pitts' column appears regularly. His e-mail is lpitts@miamiherald.com. We are gathered here today to pay our final respects to John McCain's integrity. It died recently — turned a triple somersault, stiffened like an exclamation point, fell to the floor with its tongue hanging out — when the senator told Newsweek magazine, "I never considered myself a maverick." This, after the hard-fought presidential campaign of 2008 in which Mr. McCain, his advertising team, his surrogates and his running mate all but tattooed the "M" word on their foreheads.

I am writing in support of Dean Karen Rothenberg. I was a student at the University of Maryland School of Law during her tenure, and it is my unwavering belief that all of us at the school were so very fortunate to have her guidance, her wisdom and her leadership. Her contributions to the University of Maryland and to the community at large have been significant and substantial. It is due in large measure to her principled leadership that I will always be proud to call myself a graduate of the University of Maryland School of Law. Those of us who have the privilege of knowing Dean Rothenberg know that her character is beyond reproach.

Del. Don Dwyer has been denied a committee seat? Oh, my such a harsh punishment ("Twice-convicted Dwyer is denied a seat on any House committee," Jan. 10)! House Speaker Michael E. Busch said the move was "to protect the integrity of the House of Delegates. " Any staffer guilty of two drunk driving offenses would probably be out of a job in a flash and denied unemployment compensation to boot. I have news for the Maryland House of Delegates, there isn't much "integrity" left.

Columnist Leonard Pitts could write his obituary for John McCain's integrity about every politician ("Here lies John McCain's integrity," April 18). Show me an individual running for office who has not made promises that he or she later regrets or reneges. Perhaps the writer should examine the record of Senator McCain's opponent for presidency, President Barack Obama. During his campaign he pictured himself as the best friend that Israel ever had or would have, mentioning platitudes about the strong relationship between the U.S. and Israel and the need for a safe and secure Israel as an ally of our nation.

As a former elected Howard County Board of Education member and a retired Howard County educator, I'd like to give my support to Howard County Superintendent, Dr. Renee Foose. I was not happy with the results of the survey of her performance that came out from HCEA. One of the roles I had as a Howard County educator was principal. Being a leader is a challenging task and awesome responsibility. You share credit when things go well and you take the full blame and responsibility when things go wrong.

Lt. Gov. Anthony G. Brown testified Monday morning that state Sen. Ulysses S. Currie, who is charged in U.S. District Court with taking bribes from a grocery chain, has been a mentor to him both professionally and personally. "Senator Currie has a reputation of being a good guy — the nicest guy, that's what people always say … the nicest guy you'll ever meet," said Brown, who is widely expected to be a leading gubernatorial candidate in 2014. He described Currie as a "very caring," yet disorganized legislator.

University of Maryland officials on Tuesday announced the launch of a new test site to study how drones may coexist with jets, helicopters and other air traffic in U.S. airspace. The long-planned site is to be based near Naval Air Station Patuxent River in Southern Maryland, long a key research site for the Navy. It will be managed by the A. James Clark School of Engineering at College Park. "With [Pax River] serving as a premier facility for research, development, testing, and evaluation, our region is already a hub for aviation innovation," Rep. Steny Hoyer, whose district includes the university and the test site, said in a statement.

Ollie M.J. Ray, whose career teaching in city public schools spanned nearly four decades, died Tuesday of heart failure at Northwest Hospital. She was 82. "They say teachers are born, and Ollie had not only the native ability to be a teacher but also the desire," said Hayyte Jackson, who was a college friend and later a colleague in Baltimore public schools. "She had a great love for children and young people, and wanted to see them receive their appropriate secular and Christian education," said Mrs. Jackson, who retired in 1993 from Windsor Hills Elementary School, where she had been principal.

My household recently received two mailers attacking Del. Jon Cardin from a group that calls itself "Marylanders for Integrity in Government PAC" and credited "Anne Adoryan, Treasurer. " The return address was a post office box in Hampden. When I checked the Maryland State Board of Elections' on-line database, there was no listing for this organization. When I Googled Anne Adoryan's name, I found that she was a law student who only recently moved here from Ohio. After Delegate Cardin's campaign sued the rump organization for failing to disclose its donors, a report was posted on the state election board's website showing that "Marylanders for Integrity in Government" received one $50,000 contribution from a union in Washington, D.C. and another $50,000 contribution from a union in New York City.

Mayor Stephanie Rawlings-Blake plans to beef up her Billing Integrity Unit, which she's tasked with cracking down on the chronic problem of erroneous tax bills in Baltimore. Created in 2010, the unit is currently staffed by three people. But their ranks will increase to seven employees under the mayor's proposed $2.5 billion Fiscal Year 2015 budget, which the City Council will review at a series of hearings today. The city plans to hire an appraiser, tax analyst, revenue analyst and data manager at a cost of $290,000 to better catch erroneous bills.

In bold black letters across the back of Calloway Lee's Catonsville High wrestling hoodie are two words: Bone Crusher. Take a quick glance at the senior heavyweight wrestler's 5-foot-9, 220-pound frame and couple that with his accolades as the captain and MVP of the Comets' football and wrestling teams, and the nickname is warranted. But ask those around Lee, and they have different words for him. Once that hoodie comes off, the real Calloway Lee - one they say always puts others before himself - takes to the field or mat. "I think he's probably one of the most caring athletes I've been around," Catonsville football coach Rich Hambor said of Lee, who plays defensive line and running back.

The passing of Charles McC. Mathias Jr. this week is the passing of an era -- for Maryland, the state he served in Congress for a quarter-century, and for the nation. But does it have to be the passing of his legacy of integrity, bipartisanship and a willingness to solve problems across the political aisle? The answer to that question should be a firm "no." For many of us, Senator Mathias was and will continue to be a role model, an example of what the American founders saw as necessary to make democracy work.

Picture a Victorian mansion in move-in condition that could function as a bed-and-breakfast, a home for a growing family, or just a place for anyone hankering for a bygone time. This 19th-century home at 114 Washington Ave. in Chestertown on the western shore of the Chesapeake Bay fits the bill. "What I like best about the house is the enthusiasm with which the owners researched [the home's history] and tried to restore it as authentically as they could," said Terry Stafford, an agent with Keller Williams American Premier Realty LLC and the listing agent for the property, which is priced at $675,000.
