John Fritze's article, "Bartlett fumbles finance reports," (June 25) serves to point out once again the problems arising with politicians taking campaign contributions. There is only one answer to such a fiasco. Politicians should do what I do as a teacher of political science. In my last two campaigns, for governor in and for U.S. Senate, I made a commitment to refuse any campaign contributions whatsoever. On a budget by design of $450 for the 2010 campaign and $280 for the 2012 campaign, my vote total was 22,828 votes.

I neglected to offer you anything from H.L. Mencken yesterday on his birthday. So today, I will let you judge for yourselves how much this passage from "On Being an American" (1922) rings true today:   "The United States, to my eye, is incomparably the greatest show on earth. It is a show which avoids diligently all the kinds of clowning which tire me most quickly--for example, royal ceremonials, the tedious hocus-pocus of haute politique , the taking of politics seriously--and lays chief stress upon the kinds which delight me unceasingly--for example, the ribald combats of demagogues, the exquisitely ingenious operations of master rogues, the pursuit of witches and heretics, the desperate struggles of inferior men to claw their way into Heaven.

A Baltimore man was killed in a car crash Sunday after fleeing from a Maryland State Police trooper in Calvert County, officials said. The man was not immediately identified as authorities worked to notify his relatives. State Police said a trooper, identified as Trooper First Class Shareef Lewis, was monitoring traffic near the intersection of Rt. 4 near Industry Lane in Prince Frederick around 3 p.m. when he noticed a Mitsubishi without a front plate. The trooper attempted to stop the Mitsubishi, which initially pulled onto a shoulder before accelerating and fleeing north along Rt. 4. The trooper followed the car, which drove onto a side road, Main Street, and back onto Rt. 4, swerving back and forth across traffic and going southbound in the northbound lanes of the highway, state police said.

Happiness, n. 1. The quality of state of being happy. 2. Good fortune, pleasure, contentment, joy. - Random House Webster's College Dictionary Understanding happiness seems even more elusive than attaining it. Who can define such an ephemeral goal? But the pursuit of happiness - suggested by Thomas Jefferson in the Declaration of Independence as being at the heart of what America is all about - has become a major subject of inquiry in this troubled world. Millions of copies of self-help books, by writers ranging from the Dalai Lama to M. Scott Peck, have been purchased by readers seeking road maps to happiness.

When Cynthia McBride moved her art gallery to its current location in Annapolis more than two decades ago, she was worried that customers wouldn't be able to find the business. McBride Gallery, which specializes in classical-style paintings, had relocated to 215 Main St., just a block from its original space. But McBride was so concerned she rallied the owners of other local galleries to put on an art walk to spread the news and showcase their offerings. "It was a lazy, hazy road at that time," she said with a laugh.

County police have drawn up new pursuit guidelines to prevent fiascoes such as the one last July, in which officers threw flares and fire extinguishers from bridge overpasses during a high-speed chase to slow a fleeing suspect.The guidelines do not allow officers to pursue suspects in so-called minor cases. Pursuit is allowed in cases of suspected drunken driving, when a weapon has been used or in a crime resulting in serious injury or death."The policy narrows down the amount of discretion an officer has during the pursuit," said Maj. A. Lee Apperson, who heads the Bureau of Patrol.

Every year we are subjected to lists. Forbe's magazine lists the world's wealthiest individuals. Time magazine lists the most "influential" people, though real influence is difficult to define or quantify. What I've never seen is a list of satisfied people, much less stories about how they attained satisfaction. Arianna Huffington is trying to fill that gap. One of the world's biggest Type A personalities, Huffington, who launched The Huffington Post in 2005 and whose picture appears alongside celebrities, politicians and business icons, is now asking a question popularized in an old song by the late Peggy Lee: "Is that all there is?"

The Orioles' hope of adding a free-agent pitcher took a bit of a hit Thursday when left-hander Jason Vargas signed a four-year, $32 million deal with the Kansas City Royals. Vargas, 30, has been someone the Orioles have coveted for years - former pitching coach Rick Adair had Vargas in Seattle and loved the lefty. And so the Orioles made trade overtures in three different seasons to try and get Vargas, but never found a deal to their liking. That the Orioles didn't land Vargas in free agency shouldn't be disappointing for the club, however.
