In Kenneth Clark's Civilization, he describes the early invaders of the Roman Empire as "there for what they could get out of it, taking part in the administration if it paid them, contemptuous of the traditional culture, except insofar as it provided precious metals." The next wave of invaders didn't "destroy the great buildings that were scattered all over the Roman world. But the idea of keeping them up never entered their heads. ... They preferred to live in pre-fabs and let the old places fall down.

How fine and wise it was of our nation and its military to save Europe's cultural treasures from theft and destruction by the Nazis during World War II ( "Baltimore's Monuments Men," Feb. 7). How sadly disappointing, by contrast, that George W. Bush and his generals completely overlooked the protection of the Baghdad Museum during the 2003 invasion of Iraq. This oversight led to the theft and destruction of many of civilizations oldest relics, including the oldest known examples of human writing.

President Clinton is running out of options to deal with the Haitian crisis. Either he invades, with all the risks involved, or he lifts the stringent sanctions that have wiped out jobs in Haiti, isolated the country from the rest of the world and caused the stampede out of the Caribbean island nation.If President Clinton takes the plunge into Haiti, what should he expect? Undoubtedly, the United States would quickly win. The 7,500-man Haitian army/police is no match for U.S. Marines.But in addition to fighting the Haitian military, who have started shedding their uniforms, the invaders will have to contend with ,, approximately 50,000 armed civilians throughout the country who have been trained by Haitians who either fought in the Vietnam War or who otherwise served in the U.S. armed services.

When the Sparrows Point steel mill closed, Deborah S. Barkley felt sorry for the laid-off workers - she didn't want that to happen. But she knew her life would get better. For 20 years, she's lived less than a mile from the Baltimore County plant. Until the facility shut down last summer, she said, silvery black grit and dust from steelmaking - known as kish - regularly blew in or rained down onto her family's yard, was tracked onto the carpets and corroded the exterior of the house.

I am compelled to respond to George Fenwick's commentary ("The destructive invasive species purring on your lap," Feb. 26). He cites recent studies suggesting very high bird and mammal deaths due to outdoor cats. He then goes on to propose a Draconian solution that could accurately be described as a cat witch hunt. I do acknowledge the problem, particularly with feral cats (free-roaming, unowned). But Dr. Fenwick's attempt to demonize cats by use of terms like "invasive species," "invaders," "introduced predator," and "slaughter" invests his thesis with a hysteria usually reserved for al-Qaida sightings.

News Roundup •••• CNN published an extensive and interesting piece about the genre of game commentary videos and its most popular producer, “SeaNanners.” I suppose it depends on the game, but it seems this whole “video games as a spectator sport” thing is gaining some traction. We did it, America. [ CNN ] •••• Domain registration clues have lead folks to discern that box office smash “The Avengers” will get a console tie-in game called “Battle for Earth.” With summer blockbuster tie-ins having a dodgy track record, let's hope this is more than just a platform-style runthrough of the film.

While obviously smacking of a classic “Seinfeld” episode , “5th Ave. Frogger” is a great exercise in “reverse gamification” (a term we possibly just invented). [ The Verge ] •••• ”Marvel's The Avengers” kicks off summer movie season next weekend, and predictably there are going to be multiple video game tie-in titles.

After two letters in attempt to justify himself and the invasion of Iraq ("Iraq's chemical weapons stocks were well documented," Dec. 28, and "Did Saddam have WMDs before the U.S. invasion in 2003?" Jan. 2) I still can't figure out what Michael DeCicco is trying to say in regard to the astonishingly stupid decision to go to invade Iraq in 2003. Clearly American citizens were in no danger from Saddam's stockpiles of chemical weapons even if they had ever been found or used on U.S. soldiers (which they weren't)

Ramblewood in Darlington has hosted a broad variety of events over the years, ranging from marching band camps to nudist conventions. The latest booking, however, may be the most unusual yet for the secluded 200-acre facility near the Conowingo Dam. This one, scheduled for Oct. 22, is a 5K race in which faux-zombies chase the participants over and around a dozen obstacles. And the inaugural event is being organized by a local company, Reed Street Productions LLC, started specifically to put on this race.
