We don't have time to contest unfair tickets that give a bounty to the vendor ("Camera vendor to get 'bounty,'" Jan. 11). Gov. Martin O'Malley says these bounties are illegal. This situation is so confused and pathetic that I propose we all cover our license plates in protest until the end of the legislative season. This is illegal too, but we need to send a message to our befuddled leaders. Theodore Houk, Lutherville

MANILA, Philippines - For the Bush administration, the Philippines is seen as a beachhead for U.S. troops in the campaign against terror in Southeast Asia, and the weekend mutiny by about 300 soldiers over the weekend seems unlikely to change Washington's warmth toward President Gloria Macapagal Arroyo. Arroyo, trained as an economist and educated in the United States, appears to be President Bush's favorite leader in the region. He treated her to a state visit in Washington in May, and he plans to go to Manila in October en route to an Asian summit meeting in Thailand.

Some people shudder at the thought of a "theme restaurant" — especially when that theme involves pirates. But with a gleaming, wood-lined interior, top-notch food and friendly service, Mutiny Pirate Bar in Glen Burnie is much better than it sounds on paper. A few years ago, Rob and Steve Wecker, the brothers behind Columbia's Iron Bridge Wine Company, along with friend Nate Hynson, got the urge to go marauding. Steve said he noticed that, "people are rooting for the pirates now. " When they found an empty building in a residential neighborhood near Marley Creek, they knew they'd have a great fit. From the outside, the bright blue building is just on the nice side of ramshackle.

PARIS -- The brief mutiny by Iraqi army units against President Saddam Hussein that was reported to have occurred last week, while insignificant in military terms, seems to reflect tribal fault lines among Sunni Muslims, the core of political support for the Iraqi government since the Persian Gulf war.Iraqi opposition figures in Europe and Arab diplomats say that the rebellion Wednesday was led by the very Sunni clansmen who fought for President Hussein four...

WASHINGTON -- The local Major League Soccer team, which hadn't played at home since June 7 and won't again until July 25, passed through RFK Stadium yesterday.The crowd of 18,126 saw in the first half a tired-looking D.C. United that made too many imprecise passes and gave the Tampa Bay Mutiny a 2-0 halftime lead. With a few exceptions, it was bad United.A different United played the second half. This United passed crisply, creatively and often, defended with numbers, and got one great save from its rookie goalkeeper near the end. Final: United 3, Tampa Bay, 2. Good United.

The meeting seemed innocent enough. Because they were dispersed among the brigade of midshipmen and saw little of each other, the first class of women to enter the Naval Academy had a meeting to discuss common experiences. During their first plebe summer in 1976, 55 of the 81 female students on campus met for 45 minutes in a room in Mitscher Hall and complained about being harassed, catcalls they termed "emotional rape" and men who routinely walked around naked in front of them in the dorm.

FIVE YEARS after the collapse of communism, Russia's vaunted armed forces are disintegrating. Many officers and soldiers have not been paid for several months. Nuclear submarines are not being properly cared for, raising the specter of disastrous accidents. The question being asked today is whether long-unpaid soldiers will mutiny -- or simply take their guns and run?This would be worrisome under ordinary conditions. With President Boris N. Yeltsin pending heart operation, the stakes are higher.

It wasn't Marlon Brando's Fletcher Christian aboard the HMS Bounty, moored in Fells Point. But passers-by in East Baltimore yesterday could be forgiven for taking a second look at the replica ship and its crew, who were on location for the filming of a potential television program about the ship and its famed mutiny. Baltimore is to be the backdrop for five such documentaries on world explorers - the latest bounty for a local film industry that generated $125 million in economic impact last year.

The Raiders are a mysterious franchise under the best of circumstances, and these aren't the best of circumstances in Oakland. Still, it's hard to imagine a more strained relationship than that of coach Lane Kiffin and defensive coordinator Rob Ryan. After his first season with the Raiders, Kiffin attempted to fire Ryan but was overruled by team owner Al Davis. What's more, Kiffin doesn't have the authority to order Ryan to call blitzes on defense. Neither Ryan nor Davis advocates blitzing.

Less than a year after being elected chairman of the Anne Arundel County Republican Central Committee, Michael Collins is facing a mutiny. The behind-the-scenes campaign is playing out publicly, however, through a steady chorus of statements and leaked memos posted in the blogosphere. Among those leading the charge is Brian Griffiths, a 27-year-old who lost a bid for a Central Committee seat last fall and has been blogging for more than two years at brian griffiths.com. He obtained and posted a letter sent by the Central Committee's vice chairman asking Collins to step down, and later displayed Collins' rebuttal.

Red Mutiny Eleven Fateful Days on the Battleship Potemkin By Neal Bascomb Houghton Mifflin / 386 pages / $26 Anyone who has seen Warren Beatty's 1981 film Reds, which dramatized the birth pangs of the Russian Revolution, may be moved by Red Mutiny, Neal Bascomb's elegiac and emotionally involving story of the revolution's dress rehearsal. It happened on a muggy June day in 1905, when 700 Russian sailors aboard the battleship Potemkin mutinied, throwing some of their officers into the Black Sea, and set up a free-speech soviet (council)

Besides the news items, including the business about the new offensive coordinator not calling plays, a couple of things jumped out from Brian Billick's season-ending news conference Monday. One was the simple declaration that 2007 will be his ninth as the Ravens' coach. We'll pause here for the wisecracks. Nine years, huh? Watching that offense, it feels like 90. Think about it. Billick now has the third-longest tenure in the AFC, behind Jeff Fisher, heading into his 14th season with the Tennessee Titans franchise, and Mike Shanahan, going into his 13th with the Denver Broncos.

The twists on this season of Survivor seem to be doing their job. I didn't think anyone -- let alone two people -- would mutiny last week, and I was wrong, and I certainly didn't think two people from the same tribe would be voted out Thursday. But both of those things have come to pass, and it's changed up things this season. Time will tell whether the hidden immunity idol, which Yul has, will also play a role this time around.

To the average listener, Greg Kihn's new solo album, "Mutiny," might seem like an abrupt shift in direction. It isn't just that the album is largely acoustic or consists mostly of songs by other writers; what really sets "Mutiny" apart from the rest of Kihn's catalog is its folk-music content.Instead of the catchy, new wave rock of "Jeopardy" or "The Breakup Song (They Don't Write 'Em)," Kihn gives us a modern sea shanty sound on the title tune, dips into Caribbean folk styles for "Joshua Gone Barbados," and even a ballad version of "Subterranean Homesick Blues."

LONDON -- Fighting to prolong his political life and preserve his legacy in the face of an escalating revolt within his party, British Prime Minister Tony Blair announced yesterday that he would resign within a year. But Blair refused to set a specific timetable for his departure. And his assurance that this month's annual Labor Party conference would be his last as the party's leader might not be enough to quell the mutiny. He will likely go down as one of Britain's most successful politicians, but his approval rating plummeted when he aligned Britain with the United States against Iraq and sent British troops to fight in an unpopular war. His loyalty to President Bush has been viewed with distaste by many Britons.
