Ray Rice broke the 11th commandment which states, "Thou shalt not assault the female gender" ( "Ray Rice video: This is what domestic violence looks like," Sept. 8). Any adult male worth his salt knows that and unfailingly abides by it. Then there's "The Enabler," NFL Commissioner Roger Goodell. Don't let the Brooks Brothers and smartly starched shirts fool you. He still has some of his tentacles wrapped around the web of the good ol' boy network. The NFL's history of downplaying anything remotely close to domestic violence has to be terminated, and Commissioner Goodell must go. As for Mr. Rice, the dark clouds have reappeared and do not seem to be going away any time soon.

It's sometimes amazing how some Republicans blame everything wrong on President Obama, but some Democrats are just as guilty of such behavior. Case in point: Liberal comedian Bill Maher last night on HBO inexplicably linked the Casey Anthony acquittal to "Republican thinking," arguing that the same thinking that leads people to vote for Republicans also leads people to acquit those Maher believes are guilty of murder.  Apparently, according to Maher, if people didn't think like Republicans, Anthony would be remaining behind bars for a long time.  "And before you accuse me of equating the Casey Anthony verdict with Republican thinking, save your breath.

"Interstate," by Stephen Dixon. New York: Henry Holt and Company. 374 pages. $25Shortly after you read this, you're probably going to hear that Stephen Dixon's remarkable new novel "Interstate" is "experimental" in form, and this will probably put you off, as it should, since an investment of $25 and several hours worth of serious reading time entitles you to something more than an experiment. You shouldn't be put off; "Interstate" is not experimental but a work that reads as if Mr. Dixon had used such radical techniques his entire literary (this is 17th book)

At least 15 percent of American men have vasectomies, so when a study came out recently linking this common method of birth control to an increased risk of the most lethal kind of prostate cancer, it sparked some alarm in doctors' offices. The findings "caused a lot of fear among many people, people who had had vasectomies," said Dr. Mohummad Minhaj Siddiqui, one of the study's authors and director of urologic robotic surgery and an assistant professor at the University of Maryland School of Medicine.

CHICAGO - The Orioles have a close connection to the inspiration behind the “Ice Bucket Challenge” that has swept the nation recently and raised awareness and funding for amyotrophic lateral sclerosis (ALS), commonly known as Lou Gehrig's Disease. Bullpen catcher Jett Ruiz was a college teammate of former Boston College baseball player Pete Frates - a 29-year-old who has ALS and has been credited for fueling momentum of the challenge. It picked up steam in Boston after Frates challenged family and friends on social media and area athletes followed suit, later followed by numerous athletes and celebrities around the nation.

Vacant buildings are many things: signs of decay, eyesores and dangerous. They might also hold a strong relationship to crime. According to frequently updated data provided by Open Baltimore, there is a strong correlation between vacant buildings and certain crimes, such as shootings and homicides. Common assault, a physical attack, increases from neighborhood to neighborhood as the number of vacant houses increases — a trend shared with crime in general. And it does so at a much more pronounced rate than other crimes.

At the beginning of Eugene Lee's "East Texas Hot Links," one of the characters remarks that it's so quiet outside, "you can hear the stars shine if you listen hard enough." It's the quietest moment in this explosive drama set in a blacks-only bar in East Texas in the 1950s.In fact, the tension in this play -- receiving its Baltimore debut at Arena Players under Steven Maurice's direction -- is propelled like a slow fuse. Ignited at the beginning with an almost imperceptible spark, it travels quietly along until erupting in a shattering blast at the end.Like Lee's earlier work, "Killingsworth," which was produced at Arena in 1990, this new script is part mystery, part character study.

The deaths of two young men at a music festival in Howard County's Merriweather Post Pavilion Friday has prompted an investigation into whether security and screening procedures there were adequate to protect concertgoers. Officials suspect many in the audience may have been under the influence of the drug Ecstasy or "Molly," which produces a mild euphoria in users but which also has been linked to several deaths at similar events around the country. Whether Ecstasy played a role in last weekend's tragedy is unclear, but it certainly wouldn't be surprising if it turns out audience members had relatively easy access to it despite the best efforts of concert organizers and police.
