In regard to Tavon White's lifestyle ("Alleged gang leader in poor jail conditions, his lawyer says," May 15), his attorney says Mr. White can confer with him for only an hour and only through a glass screen. In addition to that unspeakable atrocity, he only has in his possession a jump suit, one pair of underwear, shower sandals and a sheet for his bed. Aw, my heart bleeds for the worthless thug.

A federal judge in Manhattan denied bail Thursday to Ross Ulbricht after federal prosecutors alleged that he plotted six killings earlier this year to protect his position as the operator of the sprawling online drug market Silk Road. Assistant U.S. Attorney Serrin Turner said it's not clear whether five of the intended victims actually exist. But Turner argued that Ulbricht could not be released without endangering the public or running the risk that he would flee. He said the 29-year-old had explored obtaining citizenship in another country and ordered fake identity documents.

You have probably read my intro post for Baltimore Sports Blitz by now, and learned who I am and what I plan do to in this space. But this morning, I shot an impromptu introductory video with Baltimore Sun video guru Kevin Richardson (no, not the guy from the Backstreet Boys). Thanks to some slick editing from Kevin, the video turned out pretty well if you overlook me swaying back and forth for two-plus minutes. Thanks, Kevin, for masking my awkwardness. Look for more videos from me in the future.

Another article in a series about the people and the jobs that define a Maryland summer. Amanda Clougherty takes a step back and surveys rows of pumpkins, tomatoes and watermelons splayed across tables inside the 4-H building at the Timonium Fairgrounds. Surrounding the vegetables and fruits are photographs, baked goods and other projects representing the months-long efforts of thousands of youngsters in statewide 4-H programs. "It's really starting to shape up," Clougherty says, despite the clutter.

WASHINGTON -- The alleged mastermind of a plot to bomb train tunnels connecting New York City and New Jersey also discussed blowing up subway cars in Manhattan, and even toyed with the idea of setting a wildfire in California, U.S. counterterrorism officials said yesterday. U.S. and Lebanese officials said they learned about the discussions between Assem Hammoud and several co-conspirators by monitoring e-mail traffic on a Web site used by Islamic militants, and by scouring Hammoud's computer and his Beirut, Lebanon, home and office after his arrest April 27. Such discussions, U.S. authorities said, suggest that Hammoud and up to seven other accomplices were still searching for ways to strike the United States when the plot was disrupted.

NEW YORK - Around Christmas 1996 - long before most Americans knew the name Osama bin Laden - the FBI listened in on a warning about the terror chief. Using wiretaps and a jailhouse informant, the FBI monitored the conversations of terror mastermind Ramzi Yousef, who bragged about bin Laden's power and global reach. "The government would never go after bin Laden because the government knows that within one week of capturing bin Laden, 12 U.S. airplanes would be blown up," Yousef was heard to say. Yousef - convicted in an unsuccessful plot to blow up U.S.-bound airliners flying over the Pacific - made the comment at jail in Manhattan.

Fort Meade is one of four military bases scheduled to receive a secure, closed-circuit television feed of the proceedings, Lt. Col. Todd Breasseale said.

The mastermind behind a series of armed robberies that killed a Greek businessman in 2009 and terrorized a half-dozen other people was sentenced to 77 years in federal prison Friday — a lengthy term that earned a round of applause from his victims at the close of the court hearing. Nikolaos Mamalis, 55, used his friendships with Maryland business owners to rob them of thousands of dollars. He had a gang of men under his control enter their homes and offices under false pretenses, leaving the business owners tied up and frightened , prosecutors said.

ALEXANDRIA, Va. -- The man the government presented as its FBI expert on al-Qaida testified in federal court yesterday that no FBI agents alerted him before Sept. 11, 2001, that Zacarias Moussaoui had been arrested in Minnesota trying to learn how to fly jumbo jets weeks before the World Trade Center and Pentagon were attacked. That was one of several key elements concerning Sept. 11 and al-Qaida that FBI Supervisory Agent Michael Anticev said he was not informed about by other top law enforcement officials.

A bit past noon yesterday, a Syracuse University professor on an Associated Press program on WEAA-FM marveled bitterly about the spectacle pulled off yesterday by the unknown terrorists. The first hijacked plane striking the World Trade Center, she said, did so to capture the attention of the media in the media capital of the world. Video cameras then were unwittingly in place to capture the second savage crash. From Manhattan, Virginia and Pennsylvania, the day was filled with vivid images of violence.

Pakistan took its first concrete step toward making good on its promise to cooperate fully in prosecuting those responsible for last month's terrorist attack in Mumbai. Yesterday, Pakistani troops raided a training camp run by the Islamist extremist group Lashkar-e-Taiba and arrested Zaki-ur-Rehman Lakhvi, whom India accuses of having masterminded the attacks. With the suspected militant in custody, however, Pakistan now faces the problem of what to do with him. India wants to put him on trial, though the countries have no extradition treaty and handing him over could provoke a backlash at home against Pakistan's fragile democratic government.

Khalid Sheikh Mohammed, the self-styled mastermind of the Sept. 11 terrorist attacks, rejected his legal team and asked to represent himself in his first public court appearance yesterday, proclaiming that he intended to plead guilty and was aware that he faced the death penalty. "Yes, this is what I wish, to be a martyr for a long time," he told a military judge at the U.S. naval base at Guantanamo Bay, Cuba, according to news reports. "I will, God willing, have this, by you." Nearly seven years after suicide bombers killed nearly 3,000 Americans in the worst attack on U.S. soil in history, the final stage of prosecution against him and four alleged co-conspirators finally began.
