There is no dispute that Iraq used chemical weapons against its own people in the 1980s and in the aftermath of the Persian Gulf War, when Saddam Hussein was most threatened with regime change. But has letter writer Michael DeCicco, who accused The Sun of hiding this fact, forgotten that some of those weapons were bought from the U.S. ("Iraq's chemical weapons stocks were well documented," Dec. 28)? None other than Donald Rumsfeld flew to Iraq to seal that deal in 1985. Your critic contends The Sun was "pants on fire" when it claimed Iraq did not have weapons of mass destruction.

Sunday was another cold day with gusting winds, something that will be the norm the rest of the way, but with big hands, long levers and a strong right arm, Joe Flacco was built to play in that weather. Flacco's throws cut through the crisp November air as he led the Ravens to a critical 19-3 win over the New York Jets. In a game the Ravens absolutely needed to win to keep their postseason hopes alive, Flacco delivered his best performance in weeks, completing 17 of his 26 pass attempts for 273 yards and one touchdown.

After finishing his Legends of the Summer set with Justin Timberlake, Jay Z left M&T Bank Stadium in a black Cadillac Escalade and headed to Mirage Nightclub for the concert's official after-party, according to the building owner Anthony Ilkhon. The "Picasso Baby" rapper entered with a "pretty huge" entourage and headed straight to the bar, Ilkhon said, where he proceeded to order 10 bottles of Armand de Brignac champagne (also known as Ace of Spades) and 10 bottles of D'Usse cognac (who sponsored the after-party)

Earlier in their careers, Devilish Touch and Withallprobability showed enough promise to be considered potential standouts in this year's 3-year-old filly division.But they were overshadowed at Pimlico Race Course yesterday by a late bloomer who runs hard, runs often and just plain runs.That filly, Missy's Mirage, surged to a 2 1/2 -length victory in the $100,000 Columbia Stakes -- a Grade III race, and one of just two graded stakes at the current Pimlico meet -- continuing her climb into the division's elite.

LAS VEGAS -- Taking a look around, most guys would be more than a little upset. Particularly guys who had put up $40 million for the simple pleasure of watching two guys whack each other around.Not Steve Wynn, the Mirage Hotel impresario who is making a mighty effort to rid the fight game of its own worst enemy -- scheming fight promoters.From the moment, several months ago, Wynn won the rights to tomorrow night's Buster Douglas-Evander Holyfield fight for $32 million, the out-in-the-cold promoters have been sniping at him.It's a fairly impressive list of adversaries: Don King, Bob Arum and the Duvas.

OCALA, Fla. -- By the time Bill Clinton reached the rodeo arena here the other night he was clearly giddy from his all-day bus tour through central Florida and energized by several thousand partisans chanting "We want Bill" and "Clinton-Gore" on a soft, cool evening.He rewarded them with a speech that ran almost an hour and dealt at length with every issue of the presidential campaign, primary and general election, except the price of parsnips.Mr. Clinton's euphoria was understandable. The response he drew in Daytona and then along the route through Orlando, Leesburg and Ocala went far beyond what any Democratic presidential candidate has experienced in this conservative section of a state that has not voted for a Democrat since Jimmy Carter in 1976.

Las Vegas -- Billionaire investor Kirk Kerkorian and his casino company, MGM Grand Inc., offered $5.5 billion yesterday for Mirage Resorts Inc., betting they can revive rival Stephen Wynn's faded gambling empire. MGM Grand, in a letter to Wynn, offered to pay $17 a share in cash, or $7 in cash and $10 in stock, for each Mirage share. That's 56 percent more than Mirage's closing price Tuesday. MGM Grand also would assume about $2.1 billion in Mirage debt. Mirage said it would consider the offer.

FREDERICK -- Kent Bowers' first hookah drag tasted vaguely of strawberry, quite thick but mild going down, deep into his lungs, before he exhaled the smoke that floated toward the black tin ceiling at the Mirage Cafe & Grill. That was some three months ago, and now Bowers is back on a recent Friday night sharing another bowl of flavored tobacco - apple this time - with a couple of friends new to the hookah, a water pipe known also by other names: shisha, narghile, gouza, hubble bubble.

LAS VEGAS -- Major casinos and professional boxing have long been synonymous in this gambling mecca, with marquee fighters capable of luring high rollers to the colossal hotels that occupy The Strip.But the relationship has become far more cautious after a mini-riot at the MGM Grand last June in the aftermath of Mike Tyson's ear-chewing disqualification against Evander Holyfield. There was reported gunfire as guests scrambled for cover, and 15 were injured in a stampede for the exits.Hotel spokesmen later said that popping champagne corks were mistaken for gunfire.

Mirage Nightclub (401 W. Baltimore St.) has closed, according to building owner Anthony Ilkhon. The club's last night of operation was last Sunday. Ilkhon says Mirage, which was previously called Mansion, ended simply because the nightclub had run its course. "The club was open for two years and it was time for a change," Ilkhon said. "We're changing it 100 percent. " The new business will be an "upscale sports bar catering to the neighborhood," he said, comparing it to Jay-Z's 40/40 Club.

In his first public comments last week, Police Commissioner-designate Anthony Batts said the headlines out of Baltimore unfairly make crime seem out of control. It's weekends like this past one - which saw four killed in the region and eight shot in Baltimore City - that certainly give rise to that perception even as officials can point to declining crime statistics. -In a tragic example of the collateral damage of the city's gun violence, a 41-year-old man, Leondionas Dias Perez, was struck and killed by a police cruiser as an officer responded to a shooting in the 900 block of Jack St. In that incident, a 49-year-old man awoke in his home to see a man with a knife threatening him and demanding valuables.

Bonita Burbank from Redmond, Ore., was looking for a recipe for what she called mock apple pie. She said this was a popular recipe back in the 1970s and that it was made with Ritz crackers in place of apples. Many readers sent in the recipe for a two-crust pastry version of a mock apple pie that appeared on the box of Ritz crackers back in the day. (In fact, several readers sent me the recipe cut from the side of the Ritz box.) I also received several recipe versions from the Internet.

GLENDALE, Ariz. - The Arizona Cardinals didn't open their retractable roof yesterday. They shattered their glass ceiling. The long-held belief that "Cardinals" and "Super Bowl" will never occupy the same sentence is over - laid to rest by Arizona's 32-25 victory over the Philadelphia Eagles in the NFC championship game. This time, the punch line punched back. "We believe in ourselves, and we believe in each other, so really it doesn't matter what other people believe," Cardinals defensive end Bertrand Berry said.

Mirage finds herself closed in a room and surrounded by six dangerous, insane men. What does she do?She wags her tail.Being a Doberman pinscher -- a good-natured and gentle one at that -- Mirage makes no judgments about these men, no matter what crimes or mental deviancy landed them here at Clifton T. Perkins Hospital Center in Jessup. Killers, rapists, paranoid schizophrenics -- it makes no difference. Mirage likes them all.And they like her, too. They follow her with their eyes. They pat her. They kiss her. They feed her dog biscuits from their mouths.

The end of President Bush's time in office is still 14 months away, but already, I can guarantee two things. First, the next president will be elected on a promise to lead the U.S. to energy independence. Second, the promise won't be kept. As it happens, every major contender, Republican as well as Democratic, has vowed to liberate us from the cruel grip of imported oil. To take two random samples, here's Mitt Romney: "The United States must become energy independent. Our decisions and destiny cannot be bound to the whims of oil-producing states."
