Series ignores success in effort to rebuild Iraq The Baltimore Sun's recent coverage of the Iraq war borders on treasonous ("Sun special report: Exodus from Iraq," Dec. 28-Dec. 30). In three related articles, reporter Matthew Hay Brown chronicles what he determines to be a "humanitarian crisis." Unfortunately for Mr. Brown, the definition of the term "crisis" requires the situation to be in the direst of straights, when in fact the situation in Iraq is improving daily. In his highly questionable understanding of the region, Mr. Brown neglects the countless humanitarian relief efforts and reconstruction projects that are helping to improve the lives of ordinary Iraqis every day. Most notably, while constantly assailing the U.S. war effort and the subsequent rebuilding operations by focusing on negative information and ignoring the unprecedented amount of positive news coming out of Iraq on a daily basis, Mr. Brown neglects to include any interviews with U.S. service members and commanders on the ground.

COLUMBUS, Ohio -- John Roethlisberger never looks up when he competes.But just once yesterday, he looked up.

So focused, he competes in a fog of concentration."But I was putting stuff in my bag. I looked up and I saw Scott Keswick fall."I knew the door was open for me, and all I to do was hit."And that's all he did, winning the U.S. Gymnastics Championships all-around title and a pass to Baltimore for the Olympic gymnastics trials June 6-13.

A piece of Baltimore Country Club history was demolished last week: the tennis clubhouse that served four grass courts that were built in 1903. Over the years, it was home to local tennis champions and even hosted the occasional star, including Pancho Gonzalez and Billie Jean King. Phil Spevak heard about the demolition hours after it occurred Tuesday, though he had met that morning with club leaders. It's not surprising. Mr. Spevak is the president of the Roland Park Civic League, which has masterfully rallied the neighborhood against the club's sale of 17 acres for a proposed continuing care retirement community.
