How appropriate the front page photo shows a joyous Libyan rebel in American battle dress uniform ("Rebels in Tripoli" Aug. 22). Glad he's so happy. As a taxpayer I'm sickened to realize once again our dollars (billions of them) have been squandered in another unnecessary war. So I guess now we can look forward to the executions of Moammar Gadhafi, his son and other family members. Where does our Constitution mandate America must police the world? While NATO will claim honors for the Libyan rebel victory, everyone knows it was the United States that did the heavy lifting.

With as much electricity as there appeared to be at Camden Yards on Thursday night, it would be hard not to have a high-energy telecast. Give cable channel TBS credit for that: It did a solid job of communicating the color, excitement and sheer joy in the stands for the American League Division Series opener as the Orioles beat the Detroit Tigers, 12-3. It might seem like an obvious choice, but coming out of commercials time and again with hand-held cameras in the face of fans in full orange-and-black regalia as they clapped, cheered and waved signs was definitely the way to go. I loved the field-level shots looking up into the stands.

I always look forward to commentator Robert L. Ehrlich Jr.'s columns because they are always about the same subject - bashing the Democrats and claiming that Republicans can do no wrong. Maybe if the Republicans hadn't carried on a tantrum all year, President Barack Obama and his crew could have put more time into Obamcare.

I was close to 40 when I discovered how love really feels. The object of my affection was a French bulldog, sold to us as Oliver and rechristened Grisby. His color was officially designated "fawn piebald," which meant he had very pretty markings of light brown and white, about half of each. His fur was short and soft, and his large, expressive ears were light brown on the back, dark pink inside and could seem almost translucent in the sunlight. His mouth was wide and when he trotted along with his pink tongue hanging out, it formed a permanent smile.

Fe Reyes-Dollete and Roldolfo Dollete's patio container garden grew out of desperation. For 30 years the couple, who are both physicians, tried to grow flowers and vegetables on their suburban property, only to watch deer consume all they grew. Reyes-Dollete recalls one year she managed to grow a particularly beautiful daylily. She went to get her camera to take a picture of it, and when she returned it was gone, eaten by a deer she saw standing in the yard. The couple decided to move their garden to their patio.

The chair I put in my cleared parking space during the last major snowstorm did not scream I was "uninterested in the public good" but rather of the hard work that went into clearing not only my spot but the three others I helped my neighbors dig out as well ( "The chair in the parking space: A symbol of incivility," Feb. 19). Our band of snow shovelers was out together talking about how great it was to be able to see each other. And while we were moving that wet, heavy snow, we commented on the fact that we really didn't want to see a plow since we already had cleared everything from the curb to the center of the street.

Just when it seems that the high-speed connective power of social media has been harnessed mainly to bully and harass and to coalesce hate, there comes the evolved flash mob. What began a decade ago as a sudden public gathering to perform a pointless and silly act - and what turned ugly in urban areas when angry young people used it as a way to intimidate and vandalize - has become a random act of beauty. And with the aid of other social media, like Facebook and YouTube, these gone-in-a-moment events can be enjoyed over and over again by people who will wish they had been there.

For a few terrifying minutes Saturday night, keepers at the National Zoo thought their precious day-old giant panda cub might be dead. The zoo's panda cameras appeared to show the vibrant, squirming cub of Friday now lying silent and unresponsive on the abdomen of its mother, Mei Xiang. Memories of the death of the zoo's six-day-old panda cub last September came flooding back. Then the keepers heard robust squealing coming from elsewhere. They realized - to their joy and sorrow - that what they were seeing on camera wasn't the first cub, but the stillborn body of a second cub. "In the circle of life there are always joys and sadnesses," Don Moore, the zoo's associate director of animal care sciences, said Sunday.

"Ping Pong Summer" envisions a time when a kid's biggest worry was showing off at the local arcade, when a beach-side cookout with your weird relatives could become the stuff of family legend, when friends were all that really mattered and appearing cool was the toughest challenge a guy could face. Sounds like life in Ocean City , Md., doesn't it? And that's exactly what it is… Suffused with all the warmth '80s nostalgia could possibly engender, director Michael Tully's ode to ocean-side living in the era of Ronald Reagan, "Space Invaders" and "Miami Vice" is perhaps overly affectionate and could use a little more zing in its step.

Don't laugh -- I'm so serious here. You need Jell-O shots in your life. Especially right here, right now when everyone is running out of bar options, grasping at anything that isn't bleak, ice-covered or slushy. So that means the fancy spots and go-to bars are packed, teeming with country-folk-turned-locals or just locals seeking shelter to drink away their January boredom and fend off the stir crazy. The most annoying part is the neighborhood bar you love for being quirky that's filled with that one guy who brought 20 of his out-of-town frat brothers in for a visit because what else is going on right now. I'm looking at you, Walt's.

Randy Edsall is a stoic man. When the world seems to be burning down around him, he remains unflappable, impervious to the slings and arrows of a universe he cannot control. But there are some things that excite Randy Edsall. Winning at heavily favored Virginia Tech, at Lane Stadium, on the Hokies' Senior Day, for a bowl-clinching sixth victory, excites Randy Edsall. So watch Randy Edsall, champion of discipline and believer of one-game-at-a-time, experience unadulterated ecstasy after C.J. Brown clinched a 27-24 victory over the Hokies.
