The United States should investigate whether Americans missing in action are being held prisoner in Southeast Asia, according to more than 87 percent of callers to SUNDIAL. Two hundred thirty-three of 267 callers support that opinion, while 34 callers, or less than 13 percent, do not.As to whether the United States should take other diplomatic action regarding MIAs, 210 of 260 callers, or slightly more than 80 percent, say it should do so, while 50 callers, 19 percent, say it should not."It's Your Call" represents a sampling of opinions from certain segments of the community, but it is not balanced demographically, as would be done in a scientific public opinion poll.

Mykell Hatcher-McLarin, a transgender man, said he feels he has a "target on my back" in Baltimore and could be attacked at any given moment. "They are out to get me," said Hatcher-McLarin, 21. "We don't feel safe in Baltimore. " Ken Jiretsu, also transgender, says he doesn't feel safe whenever he leaves his home in the city. "I have to watch where I am and determine if I'm in danger," said Jiretsu, 42. "People treat us like a second-class citizen. " Such sentiments are shared by many in Baltimore's transgender community, a pervasive sense of fear that has become second nature after two high-profile killings in the city in recent months.

I read with interest Peter Schmuck 's article, "The Orioles keep winning, but where are the fans?" (Aug. 29). So where are the media? Where is the support from our local government? Both news broadcasts and print media in Baltimore give the vast majority of headlines to the Ravens. Most news sports broadcasts begin, "The Orioles won last night, but the Ravens…. " Even The Sun will usually put a color photo piece about the Ravens on the front page of the sports section, with a small piece at the bottom about the O's. And this happens even before the NFL preseason begins.

Friends say Mia Henderson had only recently moved back to Baltimore when she became the victim of a homicide this week in Northwest Baltimore. Henderson was found in a Hanlon-Longwood neighborhood alley early Wednesday, killed by "severe trauma," police said. Henderson's brother, Reggie Bullock, is a shooting guard for the Los Angeles Clippers, and her death became national and international news Thursday in part because of that connection. Police say the killing of Henderson, 26, a transgender woman, bears similarities to the killing of another transgender woman named Kandy Hall, 40, about a month ago in Northeast Baltimore.

BY ANNOUNCING its intent to discuss normalizing relations with Vietnam, the United States has taken a significant first step toward healing a lingering national wound.The wound that won't heal concerns prisoners of war in Southeast Asia. Occasionally, grainy pictures surface in the news, stoking the fires of public shame over servicemen allegedly still held prisoner 18 years after war's end. During that period, there has been no easy path to verifying these sightings. Now -- finally, mercifully -- we may have the opportunity to put the issue to rest.

WASHINGTON -- The Senate Rules Committee, responding to a flurry of recent claims that Americans are being held prisoner in Southeast Asia, voted unanimously yesterday to create a select committee to delve into the long-simmering issue of U.S. servicemen missing in action.Meanwhile, President Bush told reporters that there is still "no hard evidence of prisoners being alive, and for those who are unscrupulously raising the hopes of families by fraud, that should be really condemned."Some senators argued, however, that the government has failed to pursue vigorously evidence that Americans are still being held.

WASHINGTON -- As President Clinton moves toward recognition of Vietnam, administration officials and their allies are insisting that the POW-MIA issue should no longer be a barrier to normal relations between the two former enemies.They say Vietnam's cooperation in joint field investigations has been excellent -- and would go even more smoothly if the two nations had full diplomatic relations.They also say the most promising unresolved cases now number fewer than 100, and they point to Hanoi's recent release of documents pertaining to MIA cases.

New York.--The first fight I had with my wife was in Paris in December of 1978. I have forgotten what it was about or what harsh things were said, but I do remember that one of us was holding a hair dryer and plugged it in while the shouting was still going on. It blew out the lights in our hotel room. Then I looked out the window and saw that every light in the city was out.I thought we had done it. The whole city! That's a fight!It was a coincidence, of course. A power station blew up or something.

If there is one clear message emerging from the sad, tawdry Woody Allen-Mia Farrow custody suit now being heard in New York, it's this: Neither Woody or Mia seems to have the slightest idea of what it means to be a parent.Nor, apparently, what it feels like to be a parent.There's little evidence, judging from the daily press reports, that either the self-absorbed Woody or the self-indulgent, child-collecting Mia is endowed with the quality that lies at the heart of the parent-child relationship: parental empathy.

"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. Gladstone supposedly staked this claim, the world knew nothing of DNA testing or of the extraordinary lengths a country might go to care for its service members missing in action (MIA) and presumed dead. If Gladstone could visit the Central Identification Laboratory at the Joint POW/MIA Accounting Command (JPAC)

The owners of Barrett's Grill at the Hunt Valley Towne Centre will open a restaurant in the Glyndon location that was the site of Mia Carolina until earlier this year. The new restaurant will be called Glyndon Grill , according to Michael Sipes, who co-owns both Barrett's Grill and the new restaurant with John Barrett. Glyndon Grill will operate with a different menu and chef than Barrett's but will also focus on in-house, made-from-scratch preparations, said Sipes, who added that Glyndon Grill will also likely be more casual than Barrett's Grill, which he and Barrett have owned since 2011.

Mia Carolina has closed in Glyndon. The last day of service was Sunday. “We couldn't sell it and we couldn't sustain it,” owner Jay Cohen told The Baltimore Sun. "I'm grateful to everyone who was involved from the landlord to the last busboy. The customers made the restaurant what it was, and I thank every one of them. " Cohen opened Mia Carolina in 2005, taking over the old Mezzanotte Bistro space on Butler Road. He thoroughly renovated the space in 2007, changing the atmosphere from trattoria to semi-formal dining.

The sheer number of Americans listed as missing in action - more than 73,000 in World War II, 7,900 in Korea, hundreds during the Cold War, nearly 2,000 in Vietnam, and even on today's modern battlefields - is difficult to grasp. Thus, it becomes a major importance when traditionally the third Friday of each September is set aside to honor those who have endured captivity as Prisoners of War or who have been or continue to be listed as Missing in Action. This year's National POW/MIA Recognition observance is September 21. We at the Veterans Administration's Maryland Health Care System want to take the time to say a special thank you to this group of veterans and pay special tribute to thousands of military families tormented by uncertainty due to the loss of loved ones whose whereabouts remain unknown.

Mya Arulpragasam has a habit of scrunching up her mouth. In photographs, she often pulls her purple- or orange-painted lips into a hard-core rapper's sneer - or a punk's, a bit of old Sid Vicious creeping into the visage of this 30-year-old, London-born, frequently displaced daughter of Sri Lanka. It's not a pretty girl's look. Her voice, at the center of her continent-hopping, avant-garde, beat-happy songs, emerges from that wry face. It's not always easy to take or, for some, to take seriously.
