The day after the Ravens released Ray Rice, owner Steve Bisciotti wrote in a letter to fans and sponsors that the team “did not do all we should have done” after the star running back was accused of knocking his then-fiancee unconscious at an Atlantic City casino in February. “Seeing that video changed everything,” Bisciotti wrote in a letter to the team's personal seat license holders, suite owners and sponsors. “We should have seen it earlier.” Bisciotti's remarks came toward the end of a day of fallout in which NFL commissioner Roger Goodell defended the league's efforts to obtain the video of Rice striking Janay Palmer, whom he subsequently married.

The longer snowflakes were kept at bay, the faster the wisecracks started coming in on Twitter and Facebook. "I remember when I was a kid in the 70's and they predicted storms accurately 7 days in advance," Havre de Grace resident Jason Falkenstine tweeted. "It would be nice to have an apology from meteorologist for being totally wrong," Baltimore resident Jason Sellers wrote. Meteorologists offered a mea culpa for predictions of Baltimore's biggest snowfall in two years.

Valerie Lash will have a small, raised platform on which to create a whole world and only herself, a chair, a phone and a book with which to make the scene come alive as she performs The Italian Lesson with Rep Stage over the next three weekends. After an intermission, Deborah Kent will use the same confined space and props to re-create the same slice of life, but she will be singing with the accompaniment of an 11-piece chamber orchestra. The monologue and opera performances of Ruth Draper's one-woman show are part of Rep Stage's The Italian Lesson and Other Divertissements, an "eclectic salon performance" starting tomorrow and running through Feb. 16 at Howard Community College.

Al "Lash" LaRue,78, a bullwhip-cracking star of low-budget 1940s Westerns whose movie career quickly faded with the onset of the television age, died May 21 in Burbank, Calif. Moviegoers in the years after World War II knew him for his handiwork with a whip and trademark black outfits, but he never achieved the enduring fame of such movie cowboys as Gene Autry and Roy Rogers. His films included "Song of Old Wyoming" in 1945, "The Caravan Trail" in 1945, "Law of the Lash" in 1947and "Son of Billy the Kid" in 1949.

Back-to-back thunderstorms dumped a torrent of rain on Baltimore City and surrounding counties Thursday evening, causing widespread flooding of city streets and some buildings and grounding dozens of flights at Baltimore-Washington International Thurgood Marshall Airport. Parts of the region saw close to 21/2 inches of rain between 6:30 p.m. and 7:30 p.m., a National Weather Service spokesman said. Emergency calls began pouring into city fire and emergency dispatch centers as streets and intersections filled with standing water, particularly in Fells Point, where water reached people's knees in some areas.

With less than eight hours remaining before the General Assembly would have to go into an exteneded session, the House and Senate remain divided over income taxes and -- some believe -- casino gambling. As of late afternoon Monday, legislative leaders were doing more fingerpointing than negotiation as the clocked ticked down toward the scheduled adjournment at midnight. Senate President Thomas V. Mike Miller accused the House of intransigence in negotiations over the state budget and related bills.

Syria's bloody crackdown on anti-government demonstrators reached new levels of brutality this week with the killing of hundreds of civilians in the city of Hama, a hotbed of resistance to the regime of President Bashar Assad. For months, Mr. Assad ignored the international community's mounting condemnation of his repressive tactics, choosing instead to hunker and unleash his security forces against unarmed civilians. He continued to lash out even after Saudi Arabia, Bahrain and Kuwait — nominal allies that have been reluctant to criticize a fellow Sunni Arab leader — took the rare step last week of recalling their ambassadors from Damascus in protest.

Storms hit the Baltimore area with a one-two punch yesterday afternoon and evening, pummeling the area with heavy rain and high winds about 4 p.m., then following up with a second downpour about five hours later. About 9 p.m., water entered the Baltimore Washington Medical Center emergency room through a leak in the roof, causing minor flooding, said Capt. Harry Steiner, an Anne Arundel County Fire Department spokesman. The building also lost electrical power, but generators kept patients' ventilators and monitors running, said Allison Eatough, a hospital spokeswoman.

As part of its formal case for reaccreditation, Coppin State University officials watered down a faculty and staff-written report critical of the college's treatment of its core academic staff, records show. Among the criticisms omitted or played down in a final "self-study" report to the Middle States Commission on Higher Education was that Coppin's shared-governance committee has not convened in several years, that professors are underrepresented in university decision-making bodies and that there is a general "absence of active, systematic, meaningful faculty involvement in budget planning and development."

Lashing out recklessly would only bring us still more enemies The temptation to lash out in vengeance against the shadowy figures who brought true horror to our nation is great. However the potential for a vicious cycle of violence is quite real. Cool heads must prevail in the days and weeks to come. We must resist the temptation to lash out in ways that have proven time and time again to drive more people into the radicals' arms. We cannot afford to create any more enemies. And the more moderate political and religious leaders of the Arab-Islamic world have a vital role to play.

A third of the way through Smart People, I channeled Randy Newman's "Short People" and thought, "Smart people got no reason to live." In this sometimes droll but often just pleasantly literate movie, screenwriter Mark Jude Poirier's smart people -- depressed English prof Lawrence Wetherhold (Dennis Quaid) and his go-getter daughter Vanessa (Ellen Page) -- walk around Pittsburgh and the campus of Carnegie-Mellon "tellin' great big lies" like Newman's short ones, albeit mostly to themselves.

A wind-whipped rainstorm, part of a brawny system hammering the Northeast, swept into Baltimore and its surrounding counties with a bang yesterday, knocking over trees and utility poles and leaving more than 46,000 Baltimore Gas and Electric Co. customers around the state without electricity. In Baltimore Harbor, a car-carrying ship broke free from its dock in the rough weather while being unloaded and drifted off, a Coast Guard spokeswoman said. Tugboat operators were still trying to secure the ship, which broke loose from a terminal in the Fairfield area, in the late evening.
