Baltimore Gas & Electric, in response to Dan Rodricks column ("It's not astrophysics: Bury power lines," July 5), says that moving power lines underground would cost billions of dollars and is not doable. The question is whether we intend to continue bleeding our assets, in the billions, with no return. When I lived in Europe for over 20 years, I never experienced a power outage of longer than an hour. Europeans expressed to me many times their appreciation for our Marshall Plan assistance that allowed them to renew their infrastructure, which included burying their power lines.

The Inner Harbor Filene's closed in January.

In the Bible, we read that God created the world in six days but took 40 days to partially destroy it in the flood. I wish the human race could operate more like that. Instead, we've developed weapons of mass destruction that can obliterate us in a flash, but we seem to lack the capacity to rebuild, repair and heal ourselves with any kind of speed. For instance, more than five years after the attack on the twin towers, we have yet to complete a monument at Ground Zero - but have managed to drop an estimated 50,000 bombs on Iraq.

CAMBRIDGE, Mass. -- Standing in the same spot where George C. Marshall offered his famous European aid plan exactly 50 years ago, Secretary of State Madeleine K. Albright urged Americans yesterday to continue building "an international system based on democracy, open markets, law and a commitment to peace."Because the situation we face today is different from thatconfronted by Marshall's generation, we cannot always use the same means," Albright said. "But we can summon the same spirit."Fifty years of distance make the heart grow fonder, and the same is true of the Marshall Plan address.

We won't know for sure until a new collective bargaining agreement is in place, but Ravens guard Marshal Yanda might be an unrestricted free agent when the NFL reopens business. If that's the case, the Ravens will have plenty of competition for the services of Yanda, a versatile and valuable member of their line. Yanda has started 42 games on the Ravens’ offensive line over the past four seasons, and the mysterious ailment that sidelined Jared Gaither forced the Ravens to move him from right guard to right tackle last season.

MOUNT KISCO, N.Y. -- For more than three decades, John Hall has occupied a very specific role in the soft-rock band Orleans: Guitarist, songwriter and insufferable policy wonk. Hall was the one who, faced with a roomful of fans, would "launch into dissertations about the statistics of how much plutonium was being produced," recalled the band's longtime bass player, Lance Hoppen, 53. The fans, he added, did not always share Hall's enthusiasm for the minutiae of energy policy. "It was like, `All right, we get it,'" Hoppen said.

So now we have thrown some rascals out and left some rascals in power and sent some new folks to Washington to learn the art of rascality, and what, in the end, after all the hoopla, will really change? Or will the town drunk continue to run the municipal liquor store? Perhaps there will be some rational debate on the war. The voters have said they don't want the Thirty Years War that Mr. Cheney envisions, so it's time for him and his friend to start making other arrangements. This happens all the time in the real world.

When Harold Pinter, the 2005 Nobel Prize laureate for literature, addressed the Swedish Academy in Stockholm on Wednesday night, he made no secret of his contempt for George W. Bush's administration and its decision to invade Iraq three years ago. "The invasion ... was a bandit act, an act of blatant state terrorism, demonstrating absolute contempt for the concept of international law," the 75-year-old British playwright said in a recorded lecture that...

PHILADELPHIA - If you want to understand why things are going so badly in Iraq, read the profile of Douglas Feith, the No. 3 man at the Pentagon, in the May 9 issue of The New Yorker. Mr. Feith, who will soon step down as undersecretary of defense for policy, was the Pentagon's man in charge of planning for postwar Iraq. He disagrees that the bitter Iraqi insurgency might have been preventable and denies the administration thought the postwar would be easy. He insists that the Pentagon foresaw the "chilling contingencies" that could follow the war. OK. Never mind that Deputy Defense Secretary Paul Wolfowitz told me in November 2002 that he would be "astonished" if there were instability in postwar Iraq and said the operable historical analogy would be post-World War II France.
