It shouldn't really come as a surprise that Dan Dierdorf, a former offensive tackle for the St. Louis Cardinals, thinks the Ravens need to return to running the football. The CBS Sports NFL analyst makes a convincing case, arguing that the run keeps the Ravens defense refreshed while standing on the sideline and alleviates some of the pressure on quarterback Joe Flacco. “And this is the time of the year as we move into late November and December and the playoffs where being able to run the football isn't just a luxury,” said Dierdorf, who will be calling Sunday's game against the Cincinnati Bengals with Greg Gumbel.

Casey Foundation as a paragon while suggesting that the Weinberg Foundation is lagging in its civic duty by not engaging in advocacy.

Social scientists, along with those invested in the field of mental health, have determined through respected documentation that verbal battering is no less harmful in its literal destruction of the mind as is physical abuse to the body. So there you go on the editorial page, defending Pastor Fred Phelps' right to express his organization's venomous tirades, even at the funerals of our military sons and daughters, clearly orchestrated to do irreparable harm ("Free speech is paramount," March 13)
