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.

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.

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.

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.

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.

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.

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.

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.

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.

A new report commissioned by the French Socialist government to make recommendations on how France can better integrate its residents of foreign origin has been described by former French Defense Minister Gerard Longuet as "organizing apartheid by inciting each community to affirm its difference," according to the French newspaper Le Figaro. I figured that had to be gross exaggeration -- until I read through the hundreds of pages myself. As a native Canadian, I couldn't help but notice that the French experts who compiled the report referred to the separatism-plagued French-Canadian province of Quebec as a "country" unto itself -- as in, "other countries, like Quebec.

A new name recently joined the Baltimore skyline: R2integrated. The digital marketing firm's name replaces a sign that once belonged to the now-defunct Baltimore Examiner. The orange sign on the side of the 400 E. Pratt Street building is just one more milestone for R2integrated. The company was created in 2007 when CEO Matt Goddard and President Dave Taub merged their Round 2 Communications with Bi4ce Technology owned by Chris Chodnicki, now executive director of strategic partnerships and alliances.

U.S. District Court Judge Catherine Blake issued a long awaited, 60-page ruling this month in the case Coalition for Educational Equity and Excellence v. Maryland Higher Education Commission. The litigation was brought by supporters of Maryland's historically black institutions (HBIs), Bowie State University, Coppin State University, Morgan State University and the University of Maryland Eastern Shore. The plaintiffs argued that the state of Maryland had failed in its obligation under the 14th Amendment's Equal Protection Clause to desegregate its higher education system.

As a young violinist and student of music education, Bel Air resident Wendy Bohdel became intrigued by the Suzuki method of teaching music, which relies on repetition, experience and listening. But soon Bohdel realized that the Japanese technique was more than just an approach to music: It was a teaching framework for life. First as an orchestra director with Harford County Public Schools and later, as chief officer for Big Brothers Big Sisters of the Greater Chesapeake, and in her current role as chief operating officer at the wellness-focused Institute for Integrative Health in Baltimore, Bohdel has drawn on the Suzuki method to develop and implement programs.

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.

The downtown Baltimore skyline is about to change. The name of the defunct Examiner newspaper will no longer adorn the building at 400 E. Pratt St., visible throughout the Inner Harbor. Instead, the name of digital marketing firm R2integrated will go up on the Commerce Street side of the building in mid-October. For more than a year, R2integrated has been subleasing the building's 11th floor, which had been vacated by the Baltimore Examiner. The free newspaper ceased publication in 2009 after less than three years in the market.

Major League Baseball's suspension of 13 players in its most recent attempt to address the use of performance-enhancing drugs, including an unprecedented 211-game suspension of its highest-paid player, Alex Rodriguez, is a welcome sign that the game is serious about re-establishing the legitimacy of player accomplishments. The importance of such vigilance cannot be overestimated in a game where statistical comparison serves as a generational bond, and the integrity of those statistics is the adhesive that gives meaning to the experiences shared across time that are the game's narrative.
