This is why I believe in the death penalty ("Lori, O'Malley, others ask death penalty's end," Feb. 15). As a combat infantryman in World War II, my function was to kill people of whom I had no knowledge. If I was extraordinarily good at this, my actions would be celebrated, and I would be recognized. I'll make an assumption as to the kind of life that many of these people awaiting execution had. They came from a dysfunctional family, very poor, drugs, not much education, etc. We all know the story.

Older brother John Harbaugh must have felt some compassion for younger brother Jim on Thursday night. Leading the San Francisco 49ers 23-3 with two minutes left in their preseason opener at M&T Bank Stadium, John ordered his Ravens into victory formation and rookie quarterback Keith Wenning took a knee on three straight snaps. It's surprising, because in previous years John Harbaugh has always had his team play hard until the final second, saying it was unfair to the players trying to make the team if they weren't given full opportunities.

"The quality of mercy is not strained.” The title for this episode comes from Shakespeare's “Merchant of Venice.” On this Father's Day, Don could use mercy from his daughter and himself. Instead we find him curled up in a fetal position on his couch, ready to admit defeat. The penultimate episode didn't pull any last-second twists, like Sally walking in on Don and Sylvia. That is, except for the fact that Bob Benson is not who we think he is … again ! Only this time, it feels more believable.

"Show me the manner in which a nation cares for its dead and I will show you with mathematical exactness the tender mercies of its people. " When 19th century British statesman W. E.

If Gladstone could visit the Central Identification Laboratory at the Joint POW/MIA Accounting Command (JPAC)
