We like tribalism for the same reason we like to eat fatty foods: We evolved that way. Homo sapiens didn't survive long on the African savannas as rugged individualists. Alone, they couldn't scare away the scarier animals and, for the most part, they couldn't catch or kill the tastier ones. But in groups, humans rose to the top of the food chain thousands of years ago and have been passing down their tribe-loving genes ever since. Customs and practices that ensured the survival of the species were worked out through trial and error and passed from one generation to another.

Before Tuesday's showdown at Carroll County rival Liberty, Century girls soccer coach Sara Figuly rattled off a number of things her No. 5 Knights would have to do to come away with a win. Of utmost importance: playing hard and together for 80 minutes. Century, the two-time defending county champions and last year's Class 2A state winner, had to do just that to fend off a difficult challenge from the Lions. After Liberty tied the game with 16 minutes left in regulation, the Knights stayed poised and persistent - answering with two goals to come away with a 4-2 win that typifies their recent success.

A family reunion led to a Signing Day surprise for Maryland. Dallas Griffiths , a three-star linebacker from Tallahassee, Fla., signed his letter of intent Wednesday to attend Liberty. Chase Griffiths , Dallas' older brother, is a sophomore linebacker for the Flames. Griffiths, 6 feet 2, 225 pounds, committed to the Terps in December after a 190-tackle senior season that culminated with his North Florida Christian squad winning a state championship. In an interview with The Sun last month, Griffiths said that Liberty -- an FCS program in Lynchburg, Va. -- was his runner-up school . "He runs a great 40 time," NFC coach Robert Craft said shortly after Griffiths committed to the Terps.

I was very surprised to read Matt Patterson's commentary in The Sun ("America the dictatorship?" Nov. 27). How did someone get a pro-freedom message past The Sun's editorial board at the White House? By the way, congratulations on your election victory. The media has now fulfilled its agenda which is to lift takers over makers. By 2016, we'll have a $20 trillion hole with no way to get out plus all the other little things this administration will continue to do as in Obamacare, bailouts, coverups, and, of course, let us not forget President Barack Obama's favorite constituency, illegal immigrants.

I'd like to thank the editors of The Sun for their objective treatment of the recently uncloaked secret data collection by the National Security Agency, such as publishing the excellent commentary by Raymond Daniel Burke ("The union is preserved, but what of liberty?"

Baltimore Archbishop-designate William Lori said that the U.S. is witnessing "an erosion of religious liberty" and that a sign of it is the Obama administration's attempt to ensure Catholic schools, hospitals and charities provide birth control coverage as part of their employees' health insurance package. Lori, appearing as part of an Easter-morning round-table discussion on NBC's "Meet the Press," said he would not characterize the current atmosphere as a "war" on religion. But he termed the proposed federal mandate, which has been altered to make it more palatable to Catholics, "one of the most important of these underminings of religious liberty.

Chris Szocik set the tone for his team to play hard to the end, and that resulted in Liberty winning its first state championship with a 3-2 victory over McDonough in the Class 2A title game. Rebecca Oneto tied the game in the ninth with a single up the middle. Sammy Bost then stole third and home after the third baseman missed the tag for a walk-off victory. "Our goal was to win the county title, but we knew we had a shot to go farther and we understood that anything can happen on a given day," Szocik said.

Last Sunday the most widely visible woman in Washington was removed from her accustomed perch for a thorough going-over. And on Mother's Day at that. With a tug from a Sikorsky skycrane helicopter, the female statue atop the U.S. Capital was hoisted away, her green, patinaed skin to be cleaned and her joints examined during a five-month restoration.The 70-ton, 19-foot-high behemoth is generally known as the Statue of Freedom, although one popular encyclopedia refers to it as both Columbia and Armed Liberty in the same volume.

David Eisenhauer quickly made a name for himself during his first cross country season last fall after his family moved here from Washington state. As a junior at Wilde Lake, he found success in big races, capping his season with a second-place finish in the Class 3A state meet. Eisenhauer has continued that success this fall.

The senior won on a cloudy morning, finishing in 16 minutes, 37.44 seconds and easily beating out Paint Branch's Lorenzo Neil (17:06.64)

After the 9/11 terror attacks in 2001, members of the American left found one thing they could all agree on: America's First Amendment rights were in peril. The American Prospect insisted on Sept. 12, when the rubble was still burning and the dead had not yet been retrieved, that "a number of government agencies and their cheerleaders would be clearly tempted to lock the Bill of Rights away in some basement dustbin of the National Archives.
