Last week, we asked The Sun's readers to tell us what questions they had about the Persian Gulf crisis. We said we'd go to the experts to try to answer as many as possible. More than 250 of you responded, with thought-provoking and, often, tough queries.The big question, of course, is whether force will be used if Iraq refuses to withdraw from Kuwait by Tuesday's deadline; the latter now appears likely. Many experts believe the chances for war increased last week when talks between Secretary of State James A. Baker III and Iraqi Foreign Minister Tariq Aziz failed to make progress toward peace.

Not long after the Ravens sent out an email from owner Steve Bisciotti  to their season ticket and suite holders and sponsors Tuesday night apologizing for their handling of the Ray Rice situation, another message went out to team employees. It advised them of a meeting with Bisciotti on Wednesday morning where the owner explained the organization's handling of Rice's legal issues and subsequent release. Bisciotti spoke for about two minutes to the Ravens' coaching staff and all other employees at the  Under Armour  Performance Center.

In response to The Sun editorial claiming that "Benghazi deserves a real review," (May 10), all I can say is, no, it does not! What we need to do is stop the political charade concerning this issue. The Accountability Review Board asked and answered all the questions necessary to get beyond this tragic case of typical bureaucratic bumbling and stumbling last year. Political wedge issue withstanding, right, Sen. Mitch McConnell, Rep. John Boehner? Disgusting, both of you! Col. Joseph C. Kopacz, U.S. Army (ret.)

QUESTION: Something has to be done with the billing system. I have a good insurance plan, but I am being billed for things they shouldn't be charging me for; it's such a hassle to get bills straightened out. What will be done? M.F., Randallstown.ANSWER: The president's plan calls for a uniform billing form that he says would eliminate the duplication and wasted administrative work of the present system, in which hundreds of VTC insurers use different forms. In another important step to simplify the system, all citizens would carry "health security" cards entitling them to a guaranteed set of benefits.

This is a story about a daughter, but first we must briefly introduce her mother. She is 46 and is struggling to survive. In and out of jail and once nearly lost to heroin on the desolate streets of West Baltimore, she long ago surrendered her four children to their grandmother's care in Woodlawn. One of them was Tyisha M. Brown. The 15-year-old was a high school sophomore, but her grandmother, Mozzella Burriss, who raised her since she was 5, said she talked more about being initiated into the Bloods gang than she did about doing her homework.

Florida State's president is blaming the athletic department for a less-than-candid response to the test-taking scandal that might involve as many as 50 students. Among the accusations is that at least one academic tutor was giving answers to the questions of a music course exam while the test was in progress and that tutors took tests for athletes. But here's the best part. The pool of questions for the exams didn't change from semester to semester, said college president T.K. Wetherell.

WASHINGTON -- After a nervous start, Condoleezza Rice carefully groomed the Bush administration's mussed account of the road to Sept. 11 yesterday, easily disposing with the 9/11 commission's comparative nitpicking. Concentrating on more superficial disagreements, the commission let slip by its best opportunity to date for public insight into why 9/11 happened, what could and should have been done and whether our government has learned any meaningful lessons. Commissions -- like congressional committees -- are born convinced that if each member asks their own set of questions, sheer repetition will assure thoroughness.

Naval Academy athletic director Chet Gladchuk took the helm of the program last month. Hired Sept. 4, he took over from Jack Lengyel after four-plus years as AD at the University of Houston. He is the third Navy athletic director in the past 33 years, following J.O. "Bo" Coppedge and Lengyel, who announced his retirement in July after 13 years in the position. Gladchuk also headed the athletic programs at Boston College and Tulane. What is your overall goal for the 30-sport program, one of the biggest nationally?

WASHINGTON - It went into the history books as "Whitewater," the name of a peaceful river in the Ozark mountains on which Bill and Hillary Rodham Clinton and their business partners hoped to sell dozens of rustic home sites. As the name for one of the murkiest and most complex scandals in political history, it should have been called the "Big Muddy." By the time independent counsel Robert W. Ray wrapped up the loose ends and closed a six-year investigation into the Clintons' activities, the details had become so clouded that almost no one could remember what the original issues were.
