The voters of Massachusetts are an inspiration for the rest of the country that is fed up with machine politics ("Mass. upset leaves health plan in doubt," Jan. 20) Our hats should be off to them today for sending a loud message to the political elite. The message is that we're mad as hell, and we won't take it any more. We don't want socialized medicine. We don't want big government solutions. We don't want out of control spending. We don't want to give terrorists the rights we claim as citizens.

Let us hope that the Scott Brown victory in Massachusetts will finally bring the Obama administration to the realization that we the people do not support the direction our country is headed and are fed up with broken promises. Unless an immediate and dramatic change in course is made, a lot of Democrats will be out of a job come November! Benedict Frederick Jr., Pasadena Send your comments to talkback@baltimoresun.com.

Greg Anderson, Massachusetts Senior, Ijamsville, defenseman In the Minutemen's 9-3 victory over Ohio State on Saturday, the 6-foot-1, 190-pound defenseman collected a team-high five ground balls and caused a turnover as the Buckeyes scored just one goal over the final three quarters. Anderson leads all defensemen with seven ground balls this season and is a key reason why opponents are averaging just seven goals per game. A three-year starter, Anderson ranked fourth on the team last season in caused turnovers with 12.

For a girl who can't make decisions easily, picking a location for your wedding is extremely hard -- especially when you and your fiancé are transplants. I am from Massachusetts, as are most of my family members and friends. Andrew says he's "from the USA" because it is easier than explaining he grew up in Connecticut, California and Texas and has always summered on Cape Cod. Most of his family lives in the northeast. We have college friends along the entire east coast. There is no central location for everyone.

A Massachusetts firm that acquires foreclosed homes and sells them back to their former owners under more affordable loan terms is expected to announce Friday its expansion into Maryland. This would be Boston Community Capital's first foray outside its home state. "Maryland has a very big foreclosure problem," said Elyse Cherry, CEO of the community development financial institution. Cherry is scheduled to announce the move at the 2013 Governor's Housing Conference in Baltimore.

Coaches don't like to discuss it, but injuries and conditioning can take a toll on the players and help shape a team's success. While pointedly noting that No. 3 Massachusetts overpowered Towson, 14-3, in a key Colonial Athletic Association contest for both sides Saturday, Tigers coach Shawn Nadelen conceded that rallying from a three-goal deficit in the fourth quarter of Wednesday night's 12-11 decision against UMBC did sap some of the energy...

The anonymity Ryan Delaire once enjoyed may soon be over. That's what happens when you rank second in the Football Championship Subdivision in sacks, with 6 1/2. That's what happens when you get three sacks in a single quarter. And that's what happens when you cause a fumble a teammate then returns 43 yards for a touchdown in the final qaurter of a come-from-behind victory. So Delaire, a junior defensive end, can expect a lot of attention going forward, especially from No. 19 New Hampshire (1-2 overall, 0-0 Colonial Athletic Association)

If the name of any Founding Father crosses our minds on the Fourth of July, it's probably not John Adams'. The second U.S. president rarely gets mentioned alongside Thomas Jefferson, George Washington and Benjamin Franklin, the founders we associate with Independence Day . Adams? He was the surly, vainglorious brains behind the scenes who was (as the White House's website suggests) "more remarkable as a political philosopher" than as a leader. Amid the Olympian fireworks of the Founding Fathers, Adams was more of a sparkler.

As notable as Towson's 9-5 victory over Massachusetts last Saturday was for junior attackman Devin Grimaldi's first career hat trick and first four-point display, the win also showcased the ability of JoJo Ostrander. The 6-foot, 175-pound sophomore defenseman limited Minutemen senior attackman Will Manny to just one goal on four shots and zero assists. Manny, a Tewaaraton Award finalist last season, may not be at full strength after sitting out five games because of a broken thumb, but Ostrander's performance earned the praise of Tigers coach Shawn Nadelen.

WASHINGTON -- Maryland Gov. Martin O'Malley said Saturday that Massachusetts congressman Ed Markey would make an "outstanding United States senator" but said he has no plans to campaign for his fellow Democrat, who is running in a special election to replace John Kerry. The closely watched April 30 Democratic primary for Senate in Massachusetts will pit Markey against another congressman, Stephen Lynch. Markey has an early lead in polling for the seat held since 1985 by Kerry, who became Secretary of State this month.

BOSTON -- Back in 2004, a month before the first wedding bells rang for same-sex couples, then-Gov. Mitt Romney offered his opinion that "Massachusetts should not become the Las Vegas of same-sex marriage." It wasn't that he wanted to protect Massachusetts' reputation. He wanted to protect the country from what he regarded as Massachusetts' folly. For that purpose, Mr. Romney unearthed a 1913 law that said couples couldn't be married here unless the unions would be legal in their home states.

News from this past weekend that Massachusetts senior attackman Will Manny would be out indefinitely with a broken thumb didn't impact the then-No. 14 Minutemen's ability to pull off a 12-11 upset of then-No. 6 North Carolina. But Manny's absence - if a long one - could have an impact on the race for the Tewaaraton Award. On the face of it, losing Manny - who recorded 44 goals and 33 assists in 2012 - would appear to open the race for candidates like Princeton junior midfielder Tom Schreiber (32, 28)
