Patrick Sutton has a set of core beliefs that he says guide his interior designs. They are: Sense of place is necessary "A project should feel like where it is. Having traveled as much as I have, you see why certain locations have a quality about them. And people choose to live in those places for those qualities. New York isn't the Eastern Shore. " A house should be a home "Our houses should reflect the way we live. A house should not be frozen in time. And there is nothing more inhospitable than a modern house that has severed itself from its history.

If I consider the span of my 59 years, there is an obvious theme: I don't deal well with authority. When my high school tennis coach wouldn't let me wear my tie dyed t-shirt to a match, I stormed off the bus. I was fired as a waiter after following a patron out the door to lecture her on how to tip. As a Baltimore City teacher, I left two schools because of my inability to accept what I considered to be overbearing principals. A third principal, spotting this characteristic, sent me packing before I could quit.

On the “The Daily Show” tonight, comedian Jon Stewart offered some advice to U.S. Congressman Ron Paul on his recent performance at the first GOP presidential debate last week. Stewart noted that Paul had already won several straw polls and could be a favorite for the nomination if he would just compromise his libertarian principles. Then Stewart played two clips of Paul criticizing the military’s use of secret prisons and of runaway military spending. “We do not need secret prisons nor do we need the torture that goes on in these secret military prisons,” Paul said.

The recent Nevada ranchers standoff with the federal government has caused considerable discussion in the media ( "After Nevada ranch stand-off, emboldened militias ask: where next?" April 17). On the one side are the supporters of Cliven Bundy and his family, along with the various armed militias that have come to give aid. On the other side are the federal agents who claim they are trying to enforce federal law. We are led to believe that this rebellion was caused by the Bundys allowing their cattle to graze on federal land and not paying the fees and fines imposed on them as a result.

Letters published recently opposing same-sex marriage have focused on religion as a basis for that opposition, treating support for marriage equality as if it were a secular position. This ignores the fact that many of us who support marriage equality do so from religious principles. It is our religion, not some secular viewpoint, that compels us to work for dignity and equality for all individuals. Incidentally, John Lofton's letter on the subject ("Theological arguments against gay marriage have national ties," Letters, Oct. 25)

I found Bruce Hamilton's commentary on House Speaker John Boehner not only offensive but wrong-headed ( "The way out for John Boehner," Oct. 9). Should Mr. Boehner throw his colleagues and his principles under the bus just so Democrats can support him while Republicans hold a majority in the House? I'm disgusted that The Sun would even print such drivel. Is it all about Mr. Boehner holding onto his speakership and not about what's best for this country? That's what's wrong with liberals and their ilk serving as politicians in government and not as representatives of their constituents.

The secrets of saving boil down to three basic principles and an attitude. Here are the principles to use: You won't miss money you don't see. Small amounts add up to big amounts over time. If you lived without it before, you can live without it now. The attitude: Make savings a fun game and play to win. I've garnered these conclusions from the many ideas you keep sending for saving and building an emergency fund. As part of its "America Saves" campaign, the Consumer Federation of America has invited readers to submit savings tips (e-mail Nancy Register at nregisterconsumerfed.

Does the fact that the United States was taken by surprise by a group of terrorists Sept. 11, 2001 justify granting the president powers that exceed both constitutional limits and norms of international law? A democratic state combating terrorism must adhere to three fundamental principles: upholding the rule of law, balancing security with the preservation of human and civil rights, and providing judicial review. Ongoing debates over the renewal of the Patriot Act, administrative detention and the use of warrantless wiretaps, as well as proposed legislation to set limits on interrogation methods, bring all three principles into sharp focus.

In nominating former Equal Employment Opportunity Commission chief Clarence Thomas to the Supreme Court, President Bush at once achieved two long-sought goals of the Republican right.First, he brought to the fore a black man who repudiates nearly all of the traditional civil-rights agenda, relieving the right of the need to defend its own positions against charges of racism. Second, naming Mr. Thomas to replace Thurgood Marshall in the highest appointive post ever held by a black American offered the potential of the ''new leadership'' that has been a holy grail of whites distressed by the continuing, contentious attacks by blacks and other minorities on the barriers which still keep them out of the American mainstream.

SO IT IS DONE. For the first time in 59 years, a people living in political and economic liberty has been transferred, with the acquiescence of the West, to the most brutal tyranny on the planet. Communist China's occupation of Hong Kong Monday, like Nazi Germany's occupation of the Sudetenland in 1938, is an infamous diplomatic betrayal. We will all regret it.Former Prime Minister Margaret Thatcher, who signed the treaty by which Hong Kong was handed over, blustered that "future generations will be able to look back" on Monday's events "as marking a new impulse toward freedom and democracy in China and the rest of Asia."

Leland Yee, a Democratic state senator and candidate for secretary of state in California, has been a longtime champion of gun control. This week he was arrested on numerous charges, including conspiracy to deal firearms without a license and conspiracy to illegally transport firearms. Mr. Yee, a prominent foe of assault weapons, allegedly took bribes to set up a meeting between an undercover agent and an international arms dealer to broker the sale of automatic weapons and shoulder-fired missiles.

There has been great controversy regarding the forcible removal of a Howard County parent from a Maryland State Department of Education town hall meeting a week ago after he insisted on orally asking a politically inconvenient question about the Common Core curriculum. Only written questions were allowed. Robert Small was roughly grabbed and physically removed from the meeting and humiliated and handcuffed, although charges of assaulting an officer were later dropped by Baltimore County State's Attorney Scott Shellenberger.

Exactly a week before their first full-team practice of training camp, the Ravens took care of one more piece of offseason business Thursday, agreeing in principle to a four-year deal with first-round draft pick Matt Elam, general manager Ozzie Newsome announced. Elam, a safety out of Florida, will sign the deal, which is worth $6.767 million and includes a $3.3 million signing bonus and a fifth-year option, when he reports to the Under Armour Performance Center in Owings Mills on Sunday with the rest of the Ravens' rookie class.

The headline "Principled or polarizing" on Juan Williams' op-ed (June 14) was a perfect description! Sen. Elizabeth Warren is principled. Sen. Ted Cruz is polarizing. Ms. Warren is trying to accomplish laws to help the average citizen with no desire for publicity. Mr. Cruz is all about tearing apart citizens while grandstanding on every news show he can. This opinion piece of yours showcases the difference of intention between these two senators more than you realize. P.S.: James Carville is sly like a fox. He would love nothing more than for Republicans to promote Senator Cruz as he underlines the negative for the GOP and garners even more voters for Democrats.

AN "enigma."That's the word most people are using to describe David Souter, President Bush's nominee to the Supreme Court. The word carries with it a hint of suspicion -- and with good reason.What makes a person an enigma, a mystery? The lack of known principles.To know someone's principles is to know the standards to which he or she will repair in solving a problem. People of firm principles, who aren't afraid to make them known, enable others to grasp what kind of people they are by grasping how their minds work.

Who is the face of American liberalism? Who is the face of American conservatism? In Washington politics and on social media these days, the king and queen of "base" politics are two freshman U.S senators — Texas' Ted Cruz for conservatives and Massachusetts' Elizabeth Warren for liberals. The fast rise of these two politicians, both less than one year into their respective terms, is directly tied to the nation's harsh liberal-conservative divide. Studies show political polarization in Congress is now the highest since Reconstruction.

An offseason of losses gave way to a big Ravens gain Sunday night as they announced that they have agreed in principle on a five-year deal with former Denver Broncos defensive end Elvis Dumervil. Dumervil, a three-time Pro Bowl selection who had 63 ½ sacks and 16 forced fumbles in six seasons with the Broncos, will be at the Ravens' facility Tuesday to take a physical and - if all goes well - to sign a contract. “I think this move is awesome,” Ravens outside linebacker Terrell Suggs told The Baltimore Sun. “It shows we're still in the business of winning and we have the best [general manager]
