I have been thinking about media and public shame a lot lately. And events this week with Rupert Murdoch globally and Sheila Dixon locally have focused my troubled thoughts. The litany of public figures who have been in the news lately for behaving shamefully is a long and sad one. The indictment of former Democratic presidential candidate John Edwards in June brought back the whole sorry saga of him fathering a child out of wedlock with a campaign videographer as his wife fought a cancer that would claim her life in 2010.

The saga of how rapper Lil' Wayne came to Baltimore went something like this. Rapper is booked to perform with Juelz Santana (don't you love these rap names?) at the Clarence H. Du Burns Arena last Saturday. Rappers' appearance is protested by Donald J. Dewar III, a candidate for a City Council seat in the district where the arena is located. Dewar cites inappropriate lyrics of both rappers and says concert should be held in a nonresidential venue. Candidate urges that concert be canceled and one-day liquor license for event be revoked.

Many of your letters this month have been about a man who got equal time here when he wrote to ask, "Where do you find these pitiful, downtrodden women?" They've also been about finding time for a social life, bosses who are Queen Bees and middle managers who feel stuck in the middle.In a recent column, the New Orleans man who asked, "Where do you find these pitiful, downtrodden women?" also said, "Not a single woman I know fits this description!"Women today are all too strong, assertive, outspoken, ready for an argument, eager for a fight.

Lillian Hellman's plays are often criticized for being excessively melodramatic, and the Shakespeare Theatre's production of The Little Foxes doesn't do much to dispel that criticism. Subtlety would be one way to counteract the extremes of melodrama, but while Douglas Hughes' staging makes some efforts in this direction, his production rarely achieves it. Nor is that the only difficulty with the Shakespeare Theatre's first venture into Hellman territory. From the start, the three actors portraying the venal Hubbard siblings strain credibility as blood kin. It's not just a matter of physical appearance, although that's a contributing factor.

A Baltimore juvenile court judge found five Robert Poole Middle School students responsible yesterday in the December attack on a city bus passenger and her boyfriend, concluding a divisive case fraught with racial overtones. Judge David W. Young's decision followed nearly two months of court hearings on the Dec. 4 fight in Hampden, described by several 911 callers as a riot. The attack prompted stricter safety standards on city buses and left Sarah Kreager, 26, with two broken bones around her left eye. Nine black teens were initially accused of "rising up en masse" and attacking Kreager on the No. 27 bus after school had let out for the day. Defense attorneys argued that Kreager's left eye was already bruised when she boarded the bus and that when the students began snickering at her, Kreager's boyfriend, Troy Ennis, ordered her "to spit on them [racial slur]

This week's episode promised to change everything, and it delivered. Many of us hoped Amanda would just disappear shortly after she arrived in the Hamptons last season ... and our wish might just have come true. Unfortunately I was actually starting to like her this episode -- clearly whoever writes Nolan's one-liners took a shot at her lines and pumped in a few good ones ("looks like you've hooked your fish" being my personal favorite). Even though last week introduced a few new story lines, the writers had to throw a couple more in this week to keep us on our toes.
