The Sun observed in a recent editorial that President Barack Obama's call to reduce the threat of nuclear war "could not have been more timely" ("Avoiding Armageddon," Feb. 18). It would be impossible to agree more with that sentiment. Since the Cold War, the proliferation or threat of proliferation of nuclear weapons to rogue states and terrorist organizations has been a continuous specter in international relations. With Iranian talks next week and a North Korean nuclear test last week, the threat of nuclear-armed rogue nations has never been higher.

`Stop Kiss' Diana Son's Stop Kiss - a play about the friendship and love between two women and the tragic impact of an act of intolerance - opens tomorrow at the Audrey Herman Spotlighters Theatre. FUZZ Roark directs a cast headed by Kim Reiss as Callie, a New York traffic reporter, and Kateri Chambers as Sara, a grammar school teacher from the Midwest.

Catonsville doesn't have a star player, but it hasn't seemed to bother the Comets, who don't have a loss this season, either.Five players average in double figures for No. 6 Catonsville (19-0 overall, 17-0 Baltimore County), a team that coach Art Gamzon says is like none he has coached before.Gamzon, with five holdovers from last season's 16-8 team, has guided the Comets to a school-record winning streak and, he hopes, to Catonsville's first state boys basketball title in 63 years."I think this is the best, and certainly the deepest team I've ever coached," said Gamzon, who in 10 years of coaching at Oakland Mills, Milford Mill and Catonsville has taken his teams to the state final four twice.

The league's best rebuilt running backs - the Ravens' Jamal Lewis and the Indianapolis Colts' Edgerrin James - will find out who is farther ahead on the comeback trail Sunday. Both players' seasons ended last year when they blew out the anterior cruciate ligament in their left knees. Both have used the early part of this season to prove that they're on the fast track to full recovery. Their similar paths reach a crossroads at Sunday's showdown in Indianapolis, where the more sound ground game could prove to be the difference.

James E. Lewis, the Baltimore sculptor, professor and collector who died last month, was a man of reserve and dignity. He spoke slowly, weighing his words carefully, and was anything but overtly emotional.Those who only met him and did not know of his long and distinguished career would never have guessed that behind that placid exterior there was a constantly burning passion for art that manifested itself in multiple ways.He may be best known to the Baltimore public as a sculptor, particularly for his bronze of Frederick Douglass on the Morgan State University campus and his "Black Soldier," just north of the Battle Monument on Calvert Street.
