In your edition of March 20, your reader Greg Clemmer states that to cite Charles Stanley's Confederate military service is "politically correct. " Well, if political correctness is what you wish to see, you need look no further than Article III of the federal Constitution, which describes levying war against the United States as a criminal act. That's what Charles Stanley did by joining the Confederate Army, regardless of his "heritage," his motives and the good works that he did later.

I'd like to add to the recent article on meditation that for many people, moving meditation can also be a good way to quiet the mind, calm the emotions and heighten awareness ( "The pause that refreshes," March 20). I teach qigong in Baltimore. The slow, repetitive movements of this beautiful moving meditation can help practitioners enter a relaxed and quiet state of mind that's quite similar to that of seated, still meditation. And for some people, it's a bit easier to ease into a meditation practice by starting out with a moving form.

A task force appointed last year by Mayor Stephanie Rawlings-Blake to study the city's speed and red-light camera program violated Maryland law when it met behind closed doors in March, the state Open Meetings Compliance Board ruled this week. The task force also violated the open-meetings law by not giving reasonable advance notice of meetings and by failing to take proper minutes, the board said in the ruling published Monday. While the decision carries no penalty, a judge could assess a $100 fine on members who "willfully" participated in the meeting.

El Capitan is an intimidating granite formation in California's Yosemite National Park, popular with climbers because its 7,573-foot vertical face presents such a challenge. Pete Davis has done the four-night, five-day ascent twice, which is an accomplishment in itself. And he did it with one hand. The native of Phoenix in Baltimore County was born without an arm below the elbow, but as he shows in the short climbing film "The Gimp Monkeys," he'd rather have "one hand and a good attitude" than two hands and a bad outlook.
