The people have spoken twice, once when they elected Al Dyer, and once again when they did not. Haven't we spent enough money, time and trouble on all of this impeachment business? And let no one be mistaken that someone is making a point. Mr. Dyer is the ultimate "happy warrior. " Continuing the process suits him just fine. It is the rest of us who are stuck with watching and paying for this now moot fight among people who can't stand each other. Time to stop carrying on in public and at public expense.

After 13 years of experience in Maryland real estate, David Orso decided to use his skills to better equip those entering the housing market by writing a book. That this effort would also become a way to pay tribute to his wife was a heartbreaking coincidence. The book, "Step Inside: The Unfiltered Truth About Listing and Selling Your Home," reveals insider advice on finding the best agent, listing and pricing a home, roles of listing agents, and how to go from listed to sold smoothly.

A 19-year-old member of the Howard County Grand Jury was arrested Wednesday after he allegedly photographed an undercover police officer testifying during the proceedings, according to a State's Attorney spokesman.

A federal appeals court ruled Thursday that a lawsuit brought against the Baltimore Police Department and three officers by a man who says he was wrongfully convicted of murder in a 1987 killing can proceed. James Owens was charged in the robbery, rape and murder of 24-year-old phone company employee and college student Colleen Williar in her Southeast Baltimore home. According to court records, Owens came under suspicion when a neighbor of Williar's, James Thompson, told police he found a knife outside Williar's apartment and retrieved it on behalf of Owens, a friend.

It is not difficult to see why a lot of people are offended by an article written by an aide for U.S. Sen. Phil Gramm for Proceedings, a magazine for career Navy personnel.The fictional tale is a satire of Navy life in the not-too-distant future in which the author mocks the concepts of women and ethnic diversity in the military and foreshadows a warm-and-fuzzy Navy more concerned with rain forest preservation than defense.The story features war ships equipped with day-care nurseries and a sailor who wins a lawsuit claiming his commander (who serves aboard the U.S. Rep. Patricia Schroeder)

As he walked into the Atlantic County, N.J., courthouse for his arraignment on assault charges, Ravens running back Ray Rice was followed by television cameras. Inside was no relief from their lenses, either, with cameras rolling and photographers snapping pictures as the All-Pro pleaded not guilty. That would not have been the case had Rice's arrest occurred in Maryland, which has a complete ban on photography and recording in its criminal courts. There are exceptions for civil trials, and oral arguments in the Court of Appeals are broadcast live on the Internet.

The harm and damage that President Barack Obama has imposed on the U.S. calls for impeachment proceedings. Our deficit is now reaching levels from which it will be difficult if not impossible to recover because of failed policies and an incompetent administration. Mr. Obama has made our country a lot less safe with the START treaty. His failed Mideast policy has now put Israel on the line. His muddled policies in Afghanistan and Iraq will eventually cause us to fail there as well.

The story goes: John F. Lehman Jr., President Reagan's Navy secretary, after reading an article about cars that kept swerving as they approached the guard posts at Navy air bases, slapped the magazine down on his aide's desk and asked, "Is this all true?"The article was about Navy pilots removing their leather flight jackets -- which weren't supposed to be worn off base -- while driving toward the base exit. Assured it was true, Lehman said, "Not anymore," and eliminated the jacket restriction.

Took down John Le Carre's Tinker, Tailor, Soldier, Spy for the third, maybe fourth, turn around the park, something to occupy the time this evening while people of limited resources gaze at the filthy Oscar proceedings. Look at that first sentence: "The truth is if old Major Dover hadn't dropped dead at Taunton races Jim would never have come to Thursgood's at all. " You know immediately that you have fallen into good hands. That entire first chapter, introducing Jim Prideaux before the action proper begins, is a delight, with its delicious description of the sub-par private school Thursgood's and the restrained but touching empathy between the loner Prideaux (loners are a theme to come with the introduction in the next chapter of George Smiley)

IT TOOK ONLY a few minutes after the shackles and cuffs were removed for Saddam Hussein to shake off the 7-month-old image of a coward in a spiderhole and reassume the hubris of a dictator. At his arraignment for war crimes, Mr. Hussein lectured the youthful judge, refused to sign charging documents and launched into the familiar words and gestures of his political harangues. "This is all a theater," he declared in dismissing the proceedings. Indeed, it was theater, as will be the trial where the former Iraqi president is called to account in an Iraqi court for offenses against his own people and humanity.

The Orioles' dispute with Major League Baseball over television rights fees casts the franchise in a familiar role as a challenger to the baseball establishment. About a decade ago, the Orioles opposed the proposed relocation of the Montreal Expos to Washington, a city that had been exclusive Orioles television and marketing territory since 1972, when the Senators moved to Dallas and became the Texas Rangers. After bruising negotiations and the threat of litigation by the Baltimore team, baseball reached an agreement with the Orioles giving the club control of the regional television network it shares with the Nationals as compensation for the loss of territory.

A 10-year-old disabled foster child died last week while under the care of a group home in Anne Arundel County that Maryland health regulators were in the process of closing down, state Health Secretary Dr. Joshua M. Sharfstein confirmed Thursday. Regulators, he said, are conducting investigations into the July 2 death at the Laurel-area home operated by LifeLine Inc., a state contractor that had provided round-the-clock care for such children - and that was recently warned it would lose its license for having inadequate staff to meet the "health and safety needs of each child" and other issues.

A lawsuit that accuses Creig Northrop Team, Long & Foster and several mortgage firms — including Long & Foster's Prosperity Mortgage Co. — of perpetrating mortgage fraud to ease home buying and selling could go before a jury, after the Maryland Court of Special Appeals reversed a lower court decision that found the statute of limitations had expired in the case. Creig Northrop Team sold more homes than any other real estate group in the state last year and was one of the top five in the country, according to a ranking by RealTrend.

M&T Bank has been ordered to forfeit $560,000 in drug proceeds laundered through its Perry Hall branch. The forfeiture was ordered by U.S. District Judge James K. Bredar in the wake of a case in which a teller at that branch collaborated with a member of a drug-trafficking organization in Maryland to convert small-denomination bills into $100 bills without filing required currency transactions reports. Federal law requires transactions involving more than $10,000 to be reported and filed with the Internal Revenue Service, which did not occur.

A former Navy football player was found not guilty Thursday of sexually assaulting a fellow midshipman at an off-campus party in Annapolis two years ago in a case that has drawn national scrutiny to the elite training ground for future officers of the Navy and Marine Corps. Allegations that Midshipman Joshua Tate and two teammates had sexual contact with the woman while she was too intoxicated to consent have helped fuel the debate over the prosecution of sexual assaults in the military.
