Saying that her deeply held Catholic faith taught her that "we should love each other," Maryland's former lieutenant governor Kathleen Kennedy Townsend threw her support behind the state's same-sex marriage law this morning. "All people, gay or straight, should have the opportunity to marry the people they love," Townsend said during an event held at the Marylanders for Marriage Equality campaign headquarters in Baltimore. Maryland's General Assembly narrowly approved a law legalizing same-sex marriage this year, however opponents have petitioned it to referendum.

An editorial Sunday incorrectly identified a candidate for lieutenant governor, Paul H. Rappaport. He is a former chief of police in Howard County, where he served for 8 1/2 years.The Sun regrets the errors.It is the year's most curious election race. You can't vote individually for a candidate running for this $100,000 a year job. Yet his or her name will appear on the Sept. 13 ballot, alongside the names of the candidates for governor.Yes, campaigning for lieutenant governor is a thankless, frustrating task.

Former Lt. Gov. Kathleen Kennedy Townsend, who gave birth to three of her four daughters at home, writes about the advantages of home births in The Atlantic. Home births are a less expensive and more personal option for some mothers, she writes. "Each of my home birth experiences was different. The first labor was very long. I took a couple of showers, and when I got hungry, I ate. The third time, I walked around the house, up and down the stairs, made the beds, and even had time to watch The Taming of the Shrew with Elizabeth Taylor and Richard Burton.

Kathleen Kennedy Townsend has no illusions that her first book might serve as a springboard back into elected politics. The book - a reflection on her personal faith mixed with a broader look at America's religious traditions - argues that the Catholic and Protestant churches have lost their way in recent decades, falling short of the Christian concept of social justice as they've been "hijacked" by political conservatives. "This is a book you can only write when you're out of politics," says Townsend, who served two terms as Maryland's lieutenant governor and is the eldest daughter of Robert F. Kennedy.

Chip Franklin appeared on Fox News Channel to play the role of Mayor Martin O'Malley's goader-in-chief. In the words of Fox News' Bill O'Reilly: "Is this guy just insane or what?" Franklin's helpful reply: "He's a bit nutty." Franklin has made O'Malley a repeated target of jibes on WBAL radio in recent years, and he stayed true to form on national television. "He's out of touch," Franklin said. "He's ignoring the fact that the city - the real problem in the city is to walk some of the streets.

Kathleen Kennedy Townsend arrived in Annapolis in 1984 as a young lawyer working for the House Appropriations Committee, and promptly broke the rules. Townsend was trying to persuade the state to yank its investments from corporations operating in South Africa. She had traveled to Johannesburg a few months before taking the job, forming strong views she couldn't keep to herself. "The appropriations committee members were discussing it, and there was a legislator who I thought said something inappropriate and dumb," Townsend recalled recently.

The last of a parade of models had sashayed down the runway in "Style and Substance," a recent fund-raising fashion show and dinner for gubernatorial candidate Robert Ehrlich. The guests buzzed with anticipation. The lights grew dim. The loudspeaker thundered with the sound of Tina Turner's "You're Simply the Best." From the corner of the catwalk came the show's grand finale, Ehrlich and his wife, Kendel -- modeling what the emcee called "very sexy Republican clothes." Ehrlich wore a three-piece tuxedo, Kendel a floor-length white evening gown.

Kathleen Kennedy Townsend sat scribbling notes at the funeral of Crystal Sheffield, a Baltimore police officer killed in a car crash while answering a call for help. The occasion marked another life cut short in its prime: A dedicated public servant, beloved spouse and parent. Would you like to speak? someone had asked the gubernatorial candidate. Townsend hadn't planned on it. But as she stood to face the silent crowd contemplating a senseless death, she pulled forth words she had memorized as a child.

HYANNIS PORT, Mass. -- Under a perfect summer sky, onto a perfect narrow country lane they walked, between pink roses, orange lilies and an impossibly lush bounty of blue hydrangeas. First the guests -- about 80 of them in all -- stopped for drinks on Ethel Kennedy's porch. Then they followed a path alongside Sen. Edward M. Kennedy's house and onto his famous lawn, where a peaked white tent tucked under the dune awaited them. Just beyond that, rocking lightly in the calm blue water, Uncle Teddy's sailboat joined a few dozen others to create a scene of almost cliched seaside beauty.
