These days, organizations march on the Mall in Washington, D.C., with relative regularity. Anyone who visits one or another of the Smithsonian museums on any given day no doubt will get a look at one or another small group exercising First Amendment rights of peaceable assembly and free speech. Larger gatherings of thousands, tens of thousands or even hundreds of thousands of people aren't everyday occurrences, but they happen with enough regularity that they're not all that noteworthy.

As one of the hundreds of thousands who participated in the People's Climate March in New York City on Sunday, I am outraged that The Sun buried its coverage of this event on Page 6, beneath a blurry photo of participants ("Worldwide marches call for climate effort," Sept. 22). It began by stating that "thousands of people" participated and did not cite the lowest estimate of the actual turnout, 310,000, until the ninth paragraph, the same paragraph in which it also mentioned that U.N. Secretary Ban Ki Moon, former Vice President Al Gore and actor Leonardo DiCaprio participated.

Your editorial on the 50 t h anniversary of the March on Washington contains many historical and statistical distortions ( "Unfinished business," Aug. 27). The Birmingham march led by Martin Luther King in 1963 deserves righteous indignation, but the editorial overlooks the compelling case made by Ann Coulter in Demonic that the march was unnecessary and opposed even by staunch Birmingham supporters of the civil rights struggle. The struggle largely had been won in the courts and at the ballot box. Birmingham Police Chief Bull Conner, for example, had been voted out of office.

Frederick Restaurant Week runs March 4-10. The some two dozen restaurants participating in the seven-day promotion are offering two- or three-course dinners for $20.13 and $30.13, respectively. Most are also offering two- and three-course lunches for $15.13 and $20.13, respectively. At these prices you wouldn't expect Volt to be among the participants, and you'd be right. However, Bryan Voltaggio and Hilda Staples' two other Frederick restaurants, Lunchbox and Family Meal , are joining in. Other participating restaurants include Alexander's, Brewer's Alley, Firestone Culinary Tavern, Isabella's Taverna and Tapas Bar, The Orchard, Quinn's Attic and the Tasting Room.

Yet on Jan. 23, tens of thousands of people marched in Washington during the annual March for Life protesting the Supreme Court's 1973 Roe v. Wade decision - and The Sun ignored it. Why?

About 50 Baltimore demonstrators gathered outside City Hall to stand in solidarity with Missouri protesters demonstrating against the police shooting of 18-year-old Michael Brown. Organizers of the demonstration meet regularly at an event called "West Wednesdays" in honor of Tyrone West, a man who died while being detained by police at a traffic stop last year. They broadened their cause Wednesday and increased turnout, using the events in Ferguson to call attention to what they said was police brutality in Baltimore.

Hundreds of demonstrators streamed into the Inner Harbor on Thursday evening to protest police misconduct and brutality and stand in solidarity with residents of Ferguson, Mo., where the fatal police shooting of an 18-year-old has sparked days of civil unrest. The rally began as dozens of people gathered outside the Clarence M. Mitchell Jr. Courthouse, then walked southeast to city police headquarters to decry the deaths of men in the custody of Baltimore police or after police interactions.

Marching in an Independence Day Parade is not supposed to be a gut-wrenching experience, but for me last weekend in Philadelphia, it was. Don't get me wrong; I love playing my waist drum, in my waist-drum troupe. It's just that July 4th always triggers memories of the day I left behind my husband and child in China, to escape to America. I recall secretly wiping away my tears so that my mom wouldn't see the depth of my sadness. I told my 1-month-old daughter, who was fast asleep, "I promise you a bright future, but for now, mommy has to leave you here in China.

As hundreds of men marching against violence Friday night along Baltimore's North Avenue passed Gina Williams' vehicle, she applauded. "I'm glad to see some black men stand up for their community," said Williams, 59. Last year amid a surge in violence in Baltimore, a group of men hatched an idea in a barbershop: Get 300 men to walk the streets in a demonstration not only against violence but the apathy that allows it to persist. They met and far exceeded their goal, attracting more than 600 men who trudged the length of North Avenue, from the west side through midtown to the east side and back.

In America, the land of strongly held opinions, a whiff of controversy about the proper way to celebrate Independence Day seems positively patriotic. So it was in Bel Air. Complaints of animal cruelty didn't stop the frog-hopping contest or turtle race at Shamrock Park on Friday morning, though organizers said that the number of contestants - 144 frogs and 105 turtles - was down from last year. A (comparatively) speedy turtle named Squirt won a trophy on behalf of 14-year-old Jessica Douglass of Whiteford, who has been coming to the derby for as long as she can remember.

We are coming up on the first anniversary of Baltimore's 300 Men March, when far more than that number of men - perhaps double that number - walked the length of North Avenue and back on a Friday night to protest last summer's spike in killings. It was a quickly organized event in response to a particularly sickening period in the life of the city. More than 40 people had been shot in the first couple of weeks of summer, 20 of them in a single weekend. Even with all that - lots of blood on the streets, and lots of urgency in response to it - organizers were surprised by the size of the march.

Discount retailer Marshalls expects to open its planned Inner Harbor store on March 21, a spokeswoman for TJX Cos. Inc. said. The company signed a lease last year for more than 31,000 square feet at Lockwood Place on East Pratt Street in the former Filene's Basement spot. The space has been vacant for about a year, since the Filene's closed as part of the chain's bankruptcy filing. Marshalls, known for selling brand-name apparel at a discount, will open on the second floor of the three-story retail center, also home to restaurants P.F. Chang's China Bistro, Fogo de Chao Brazilian Steakhouse and Panera Bread.

Many times, the way a team starts and/or finishes can help determine that team's postseason fate. The middle of the upcoming season could be just as important for Towson. Between March 8-22, the Tigers will meet Marist at home before traveling for road contests against Navy (March 12), Duke (March 16), UMBC (March 19) and Colonial Athletic Association rival Delaware (March 22). It may be one of the more arduous stretches in Division I, but coach Shawn Nadelen said the players might prefer those games versus participating in practice.
