Reality TV makes strange bedfellows - especially on a tattoo competition show. Don Peddicord, 30, co-owner of Tattoo Dynasty in Joppa, met New York-based tattoo artist Erik Suida during a casting call for Season 2 of the Spike tat competition show, "Ink Master. " "We actually waited in line together for about six hours and he just kind of rubbed me the wrong way from the beginning," Peddicord said. "I just never really cared for his attitude about things. " But after several years of social media "bashing," Suida called on Peddicord to be his rival for the show's fifth season, "Ink Master Rivals," now airing at 10 p.m. Tuesdays.

I have read the editorial in The Sun about the "people" who are calling the Washington Redskins' name racists. Fine. ( "Washington's offensive line," June 20.) My question is, who are these people, where are they and how many of them are there? The Washington Redskins team holds these Native Americans up as great people of much honor. That has always been their credo. So my suggestion to The Sun and all the other people saying the name is "racist" is to get your data correct because what you are saying is not so. There have been investigators who have talked with the Native Americans, and they don't have a problem with the name.

OK, here we go. Your latest editorial on the subject of illegal immigrants comes again to the point of absurdity ("Patching a broken immigration system," April 17). These people broke the law but because they have been here quite a while we should not deport them. Maybe I should go out and steal a car and hide it for some years before finally admitting I had committed this crime but now I am a good guy. So don't put me in jail because now I'm a good guy! That was then, this is now. R. Ails, Joppa - To respond to this letter, send an email to talkback@baltimoresun.com . Please include your name and contact information.

He writes that flooding and coastal erosion will have an impact on port operations. He states the rising sea levels will have a catastrophic effect on the lower Eastern Shore. But the one that really grabbed my attention is this: "By 2050, days hotter than 90 degrees Fahrenheit will triple to 90 days a year. Between 25 and 30 days will be above 100 degrees.
