Letter writer Ron Wirsing was absolutely correct in ascertaining that the murder rate is lower in states that adopt the stand-your - ground self defense law ("Zimmerman trial had nothing to do with race," July 17). And the reason is pretty simple. In those states, when an armed man kills an unarmed man and pleads self-defense and walks, it's not called murder anymore. It's called open season. Thomas J. Snyder

Judging by the spicy, sophisticated production of David Ives' “Venus in Fur," it's going to be an interesting year for the Columbia-based professional company Rep Stage, now in its first full season planned by recently appointed co-producing artistic directors Suzanne Beal and Joseph W. Ritsch. "Venus in Fur," a hit on Broadway in 2011, manages a neat little trick of turning tables and shifting centers of gravity as it confronts issues of desire, passion, sexuality and domination.

The last weekend of September could not have been much more caloric, musically speaking, without actually clogging arteries. While the Baltimore Symphony Orchestra was reveling in the high romanticism of Rachmaninoff and Korngold ( my review was posted earlier ), the Peabody Symphony Orchestra gorged on hefty emotional outpouring by Brahms and Tchaikovsky. I rather enjoyed both lyrical feasts. On Saturday night, Hajime Teri Murai, director of orchestral activities at Peabody for more than two decades, got the conservatory's 2014-2015 concert series rocking with a crisp, jazzy little curtain raiser, Shafer Mahoney's "Sparkle.

THE GATES OF Piney Run Park will open for the season April 1, ending a busy five months for the staff. When the park closes in late October, the staff gears up for work that cannot be accomplished during the open season, when throngs of visitors show up to fish, hike, boat and go on picnics. "Everybody thinks the park staff gets to kick back when, really, winter is as busy as open season," said park manager Loren Lustig, who has worked in conservation and parks for 31 years. Environmental education runs year-round at the nature center.

In a letter to his father, a 25-year-old Wolfgang Amadeus Mozart declared: "I pay no attention whatever to anybody's praise or blame. … I simply follow my own feelings. " This self-confidence is just one of the revered composer's traits explored in Peter Shaffer's play "Amadeus," which Center Stage is reviving for its season-opener. A few other Mozart characteristics, including behavior still not considered kosher in polite society, also pepper this colorful mix of fact and fiction.

Big-bucks movies -- "Sister Act," "Ghost," "Flashdance," "Dirty Dancing," to name a few -- get turned into stage musicals with some frequency. Indie films form a smaller screen-to-boards subset. Of these, "Once," based on the minuscule-budget, shot-in-17-days Irish film written and directed by John Carney, may be the most distinctive. With its eight Tony Awards in 2012, including best music, "Once" continues to win fans and strong reviews on the road. The national touring production, which arrives Tuesday to open the Hippodrome Theatre 's Broadway Across America season, launched a year ago and will keep traveling at least through next summer.

  Poor Harry. The struggling actor lucked out auditioning for an understudy gig, but he has little respect for the guy he's understudying -- Jake, a so-so star of low-grade disaster movies. To make things more uncomfortable, the stage manager running the rehearsal turns out to be Harry's former fiancee, Roxanne, and she is far from pleased at the reunion. Still, Harry is determined to plunge into the play, a long-buried work by Franz Kafka filled with challenging existential musings and surreal situations.

The past 10 months have been a long wait for Johns Hopkins , which lost 29-24 to Wesley in the first round of the NCAA Division III playoffs on Nov. 23. Brandon Cherry said every member of the Blue Jays has been chomping at the bit for the start of the upcoming 2014 season, which kicks off on Saturday at noon with a home game against Randolph Macon at Homewood Field. “Everybody's just excited to get back on the field,” the junior running back said. “It's been a while since our last loss to Wesley, and we're putting that behind us. We're coming in with the fresh mind that it's a new season and we're ready to get back in it.” The new season means a featured tailback role for the Parkville resident and Boys' Latin graduate.

Based on last year's numbers, attackmen Luke Phipps and Mike Kane have turned in surprising seasons for Salisbury. Asked to pick which player has been the bigger surprise, coach Jim Berkman couldn't single out one and leave out the other. “I actually think that both are pretty big surprises,” he said on Tuesday morning. “Both have really gotten a lot better. Their confidence has been a big part of them improving, and the work that they have done in the offseason to get their skill level to the next level has been remarkable.” Phipps, a John Carroll graduate, ranks second on the Sea Gulls (19-1)

For the first time in 2014, Seahawk Stadium will play host to something other than snow. No. 18 St. Mary's (3-4) will tangle with Albright (2-3) on Saturday in what will be the team's home opener in St. Mary's City. The Seahawks were scheduled to play host to Muhlenberg on March 8, which would have been their first home contest after four consecutive games on the road. But a storm that dumped 5 inches made Seahawk Stadium unplayable, and both schools agreed to play the game at Muhlenberg.

Craig Candeto will be the starting quarterback for Navy tomorrow night when the season opens in Philadelphia against Temple. It is the first time a sophomore has started the season at quarterback for the Midshipmen since 1995, when an unknown named Chris McCoy rushed for an NCAA first-game record 273 yards in a stunning, 33-2 victory over SMU. Coach Charlie Weatherbie cited Candeto's "maturity coming in" to the academy as a factor.

It's no surprise that fear of entertaining ranks right up there with fear of public speaking, job interviews and first dates. A 2002 study by a British psychology professor found that 12 percent of those brave enough to invite guests into their home go on to suffer rapid heartbeat, difficulty breathing, headaches, nausea and "mental distraction." Trying to measure up to what's shown on TV and in glossy books freezes many would-be hosts into inertia, but remember that those perfect images have been fussed over by chefs, photographers and stylists -- and may be even digitally enhanced.

A few weeks before the 2013 football season started at Navy, Ken Niumatalolo sat in his office and talked about how it was the most talented bunch of Midshipmen he had been around as both the team's head coach and as an assistant under both Paul Johnson and Charlie Weatherbie. Going into his seventh season as head coach, Niumatalolo knows that this year's team - led by junior quarterback Keenan Reynolds - could be even better than the one that finished 9-4 last fall by sweeping its fellow service academies and topping off the season with a contentious bowl victory over Middle Tennessee State.
