I would publicly like to thank the wonderful people who came to my aid when I fell on Wednesday, Nov. 27, in front of the Barnes and Noble store in Pikesville. One young man was a medic, one woman had her cellphone ready and offered to call someone for me. Someone else said "put an umbrella over her head. " It was extremely gratifying in this day and age to encounter so many Good Samaritans. Thanks again.

Levin said that the store and its lunch counter, a longtime gathering spot for Pikesville residents, will close around Labor Day, or as soon as inventory is sold off. Still know as Fields Pharmacy by the locals, the pharmacy stopped operating in 1998, according to Levin.

It's ironic that the Baltimore Sun recently mentioned how vital farmer's markets are to communities ("Growing faster than zucchini," Aug 20). My local market kept getting moved, and I wouldn't be surprised if it doesn't return next year. At least Office Depot was decent and smart enough to offer vendors a spot after they were shuttled from the library parking lot to Boston Market and yet again to a community center. Unfortunately, the new location isn't nearly as convenient: It's unlikely people will (or can)

Recently, Baltimore County stepped up efforts to eliminate signs on lawns and poles in residential neighborhoods ("Crackdown on nuisance road signs," April 26), but what we have around Park Heights Avenue and Stevenson Road is a problem with numerous tractor-trailers parked from Friday night to Monday morning on Brooks Robinson Drive (formerly Radio Tower Drive). This road primarily serves a residential neighborhood, and anyone who wants to walk along this stretch of road must do so in traffic as the trucks occupy the shoulder.

Justin Myers stepped out of Penn Station in Baltimore on Wednesday evening to find two groups of protesters chanting, waving flags and blocking traffic. Hundreds of pro-Israeli and pro-Palestinian protesters were out to support their respective sides in a decades-long contest that has grown increasingly violent in recent months. As he waited for a cab to take him to visit his parents, Myers, 36, of Washington, D.C., looked out on the scene. "With the news, I guess I'm not completely surprised," he said.

The children flooding our borders are being cared for as no other country has ever cared for a population that illegally entered it. They are being fed and housed and cleansed of many diseases we had thought eradicated in this country years ago. They have, for the most part, come here and surrendered, hoping to be reunited with parents or relatives after having been given a "permiso" from our government. A huge lie has been fed to them. The president wants $3.7 billion to care for them and to keep them here.

I have a suggestion concerning the Redskins debate ( "Facts and logic say rename Redskins," June 27), and I invite that football team to consider my little game. Think back to your family's country of origin, no matter how recent or far back in the mists of time. Call to mind some derogatory name someone from your country has been called, whether it might be "Mick" or "Gook," "Wetback" or "Polack" or anything else. Consider whether you'd like a ball team called by that name, posted over the web and print media, shouted out in cheers or derision at the stadium.

The report on the legal wrangling over the Druid Ridge Cemetery in Pikesville demonstrated the extreme remove of professional legal minds from ordinary common sense ("Neighbors see threat to cemetery," Feb. 17). The disputed text from a deed required "That the said property be maintained and operated as a cemetery. " Any reasonable person would suppose that "the said property" was a parcel described precisely earlier in the document, not some fraction of it currently in use, but the entire parcel, as nothing else could be "the said property.

Scanning The Sun from front to back recently I found nary a word about the congressional hearings in Washington on the IRS ("Republicans blast IRS over lost Lerner emails," June 18). Is the White House still running your editorial page? Where's Woodward and Bernstein when we really need them? An example: With so much going on, your attack dog, Thomas Schaller, decides to tell us about his trip to the Adirondacks. I guess you know better than I what sells papers.
