Mayor Stephanie Rawlings-Blake writes that a vote for Question 7 is a vote for Baltimore schools and that it will allow a world-class casino to be built on Russell Street ("Question 7 keeps the money in Md. " Oct. 11). Last I checked, Baltimore already owns that right and is really only getting table games out of this closed door deal with the big three, Gov. Martin O'Malley, House Speaker Michael Busch and Senate President Thomas V. Mike Miller. She conveniently left that out. So how did Ms. Rawlings-Blake get to be part of the inside and become such a staunch gambling supporter?

Recently I read Mike Dresser's article concerning the proposed increase in Maryland's tolls, the one in which he defended them, or at least attempted to justify them! ("Increases in bridge, tunnel tolls cruel but fair," June 13.) Mr. Dresser "drank the Kool-Aid" and bought into this travesty of justice. I believe that these increases have far more to do with supporting President Obama's (anti) energy policies rather than generating funds to maintain and repair infrastructure. It doesn't take a rocket scientist to understand that such increases in tolls will result in Marylanders driving less, possibly quite a bit less!

Do the Ravens deserve to be favored for Monday night's game in Denver? Make me the underdog every week if it helps to motivate the Ravens to victory. Go ahead and knock that chip off my shoulder. Gil Kleiner Baltimore Home team usually gets three points. Denver played a tougher schedule against better opponents and is used to the "mile high" altitude. Irvin J. Lustman Baltimore Sure, make us road favorites. I'll drink the Kool-Aid; we're 4-0. Steve can't throw the ball 40 yards downfield anymore, but he can lead a comeback.

You know a product is ingrained in the culture when consumers (and writers) use the name to describe all other similar products. Band-Aid, Kleenex, Jell-O, Frisbee, Gore-Tex - stand up and take a bow. Yes, it makes the manufacturers grind their proprietary teeth and their lawyers write threatening form letters. But the bottom line is, consumers saying your name is better than their not saying it. Hanging out with military and law enforcement professionals recently, I noticed that when they talked about hydration packs, they called all of them "CamelBaks," a tip of the cap to the company that makes all shapes and sizes of bladder-and-tube drinking systems and plastic water bottles.

Gravity-defying trapeze artists. Animals performing tricks at a trainer's command. A zany, obnoxious clown and a ringmaster orchestrating the show with powerful orations. That's the circus Baltimore native Cedric Walker relished when his mother took him to the big top as a child. The UniverSoul Circus is his remix. The creator of the 11-year-old traveling show, which begins a six-day run at Security Square Mall tonight, includes all the mainstays that circus enthusiasts have come to love.

At Stanford University, Ken Kesey became involved with the Beat culture in San Francisco.Kesey's exposure to LSD as well as his time spent as an orderly in a psychiatric hospital inspired him to write "One Flew Over the Cuckoo's Nest," a cult classic.He later gave up writing, directed his attention to experimenting with LSD, formed a group of cohorts called the "Merry Pranksters," bought an old bus and traveled across the country distributing LSD in "acid tests." The escapades were recorded in Tom Wolfe's "Electric Kool-Aid Acid Test" also a cult classic.
