Rob Burnett is lying on a training table with ice bags on his right knee, a grin on his face and another grueling workout behind him. His mind races forward, to the days when he can line up at left defensive end, fire out of his stance, take on a blocker and get after an opposing quarterback.To the days when he can feel whole again.For now, Burnett must concentrate on putting his football future back together, one tedious step at a time. Burnett is preparing for his eighth NFL season, yet he has never known an off-season like this one, mainly because it began Oct. 13. That night, Burnett tore up his knee while running on the RCA Dome turf in Indianapolis.

For the second time since a graphic video surfaced of former Ravens running back Ray Rice punching Janay Rice in a casino elevator, retired linebacker and ESPN NFL analyst Ray Lewis has commented on the domestic-violence incident. Rice's $35 million contract was terminated by the Ravens on Monday. He has been indefinitely suspended by the NFL. "This is a tragic situation what Ray Rice did was inexcusable," Lewis said Sunday morning on ESPN's Sunday NFL Countdown. "There's no room in our world for what we've seen.

The woman in the baggy linen suit has some stories she tells and others no one will ever hear. At some point she destroyed what might have been evidence, and let historical mystery linger like the aroma of burnt love letters. Lorena Hickok, dead 32 years, will step onto a stage in Fells Point tomorrow evening and tell how she came to befriend and love Eleanor Roosevelt. She'll say just so much and no more, leaving the question open: What really went on between her and the woman who was once the most powerful in America?

Don't look now, but the Maryland General Assembly is mulling over legislation to require motorists to put on their headlights every time they they turn on their windshield wipers.The bill, which would make it illegal to drive through an August sun shower with lights off, was proposed by Sen. William Amoss, who thinks the legislation should be approved because "it's a good bill."There is plenty room for argument on that score -- weighing, for instance, the safety benefits of headlights in the fog to, say, the increased risk posed by drivers fumbling to turn on the lights, flip on the wipers, turn down the radio and the watch the road.

CITY COLLEGE is reclaiming its stature as an incubator for college-bound students. This is an achievement to be savored, not just by the public high school's visionary leaders and high-profile alumni, but by all who care about the future of Baltimore. Excellent public schools give families reasons to stay in the city. And families with children aspiring to higher education form a core population that Baltimore should be fighting to keep. To restore academic prestige that had waned, Principal Joseph Wilson and the school's extended family held themselves and the students to high standards.

Baltimore Sun reporter Aaron Wilson looks back at the Ravens' game each week and looks ahead to their next opponent. GAME PLAN: Instead of airing it out and employing a no-huddle offense the way they did frequently in ineffective fashion during a loss to the Cincinnati Bengals, the Ravens scrapped the hurry-up approach and adopted a balanced, gritty approach. There were just a dozen shotgun snaps out of 65 offensive plays, zero no-huddle plays. They ran the football downhill, gaining 157 rushing yards on 36 runs to wear out a visibly tired Pittsburgh Steelers defense.

The Ravens wouldn't be the leading candidate to sign soon-to-be released Daunte Culpepper, but they have not eliminated the possibility of adding the three-time Pro Bowl quarterback, a league source said. Because the Ravens are committed to Steve McNair as their starter, it's unsure whether Culpepper would want to come here since he might have an opportunity to compete for a starting job elsewhere, the source added. Culpepper, who is expected to be cut by the Miami Dolphins, has been linked to the Ravens because McNair is 34 and backup Kyle Boller is only signed through this season.

With tales of the world's woes grabbing too many headlines this summer, it might be remedial to consider the subject of happiness. We might not agree on how to define it, but we want it. Even our Declaration of Independence asserts that pursuing happiness is an unalienable right. And so off we go, chasing that subjective and capricious state of being that teases us into thinking it can be ours through chance and circumstance. Apparently, plenty of people have achieved a high level of happiness, if you believe studies that claim to have examined the subject closely.
