An overflow crowd of teammates, coaches and reporters jammed into the Ravens' auditorium yesterday to bid farewell to Jonathan Ogden . But the storied All-Pro offensive tackle wasn't ready to say goodbye completely. In a touching and lighthearted half-hour news conference, Ogden officially retired but made it clear he will remain to help the team, as well as stay committed to the city where he played his 12 seasons. "I'm a Baltimore Raven for life," Ogden said with a smile.

The first time I met Artie Donovan, I got all of it - a big serving of his affable nature, his way of taking genuine interest in a complete stranger, a dose of his amazing memory and his way of connecting life experiences with the food and drink that accompanied them. This was 25 years ago. I was supposed to interview Hall of Famer Donovan, but he started off with questions for me instead. He recognized my New England accent. "Where are you from?" he asked. When I told him my native state was Massachusetts, he wanted to know what town.

There's no way for any of us to know how Josh Hamilton feels these days, but if you ask him he will do his best to let you know. That says a lot in itself. The guy who might have the best idea about what swirls through Hamilton's head is Dodgers coach Manny Mota. It was Mota who had the misfortune to line a ball into the seats at Dodger Stadium in 1970, striking 14-year-old Alan Fish in the head. The teenager died four days later. "I'm sad for Josh, because I know how he feels now," Mota has said.

On the first day of the rest of his life,  Michael Phelps   slept in. Really in. "I just woke up," he told reporters at a 1 p.m. news conference Sunday, the day after he swam his last race ever to complete a 22-medal run over four Olympics. After spending much of his life seeing almost nothing but "the black line at the bottom of the pool," Phelps seemed ready to make up for lost time. He's been here for about two weeks, for example, but just now had seen Big Ben and the Parliament as he was driven to the event, organized by one of his sponsors, Visa.

Regarding "Cell phone use, tumors linked" (June 1), I am always amazed at what passes for news. Chances are that banning cell phones or other possible causes of cancer won't extend life.

The old adage says that when you put someone's hand in the fire, it will be an experience to learn from and never repeat. But there are some who find the fire to be very alluring, and they repeatedly come back for more, despite the consequences. Enter Felicia "Snoop" Pearson ("City drug raids net 63; 'Wire' actress arrested," March 11). Opportunities were given her to change her life, to place her troubled past in the rearview mirror. But that fire, that magnet that draws some back to the gutter dealer's life, is sometimes too much to resist.

On March 23, people across the nation rallied to protest show the rule forcing religious institutions to provide employee health care insurance covering contraceptives, sterilization and abortifacient drugs. In Baltimore, Rep. Andy Harris and former ambassador Alan Keyes spoke to a crowd of several hundred people, and I attended a rally in Ellicott City where I estimated about 150 people were present. There were two other rallies in Maryland. Yet The Sun gave these gatherings no coverage at all. Why not?
