What would you do if, while sitting behind the wheel of your car at a traffic light, you see a man with a handgun in a shoulder holster approach your vehicle, pound his fist against the driver-side window and release a profane tirade? Would you: a. Lower the window and fire back some expletives; b. Look for an emergency route through the busy intersection in front of you; c. Remain calm and ignore the man until he goes away; d. Call the cops as soon as possible? When this happened to him in Harford County last week, Francesco Grasso chose "c" and "d. " Dr. Grasso is a surgeon with a practice in Baltimore, Towson and Bel Air. He was shaken enough by this display of road rage to contact me and to submit his account as a cautionary tale for other drivers.

With so many home mortgages underwater, perhaps it's little wonder that interior designers have found inspiration in the murky depths of the sea. Let's call it turning a negative into a positive. The rustic, woodsy themes of the fall and winter have given way to crisp, blue nautical themes that are expected to dominate home decor for the next few months at national retail outlets like Target as well as small chains and locally owned shops. "Nautical is super-trendy right now," said Gary Godby, a manager at Trohv, a home store with locations in Hampden and Washington.

News Roundup •••• Sony launched the PlayStation Vita on Wednesday in North America and Europe, and analysts are predicting it could actually be a hit for the beleaguered company despite slowing sales in Japan. [ Los Angeles Times ] •••• EA Sports' “NBA Live” franchise, which was briefly “NBA Elite” and then briefly non-existent, will be back for a 2013 edition.

An incident of road rage in Gambrills Monday led to a stabbing, a two-car crash and an arrest, police said. Ross Brandon Sudbrook, 23, of Old Riverside Drive in Baltimore, has been charged with assault and reckless endangerment as a result of the stabbing. Police found several injured people and two heavily damaged vehicles at about 4 p.m. near the intersection of Route 3 north and Churchview Road. A Ford Explorer and a PT Cruiser were in a drainage ditch. Investigators said the accident and assault stemmed from an altercation between the driver of the Explorer and a 23-year-old male passenger in the other car. Police said that the driver and passenger in the Explorer exchanged seats on at least one occasion at another intersection along Route 3 and the delay led to an exchange of words between the occupants of the two vehicles.

No one was injured in the incident, state troopers said. The suspect, Nicholas Heider, could face additional charges from the Harford County State's Attorney's Office, according to troopers. The other driver involved said the dispute started over a disagreement over right-of-way between the drivers near Exit 67. The two men gestured at each other and cut each other off, troopers said.

The report by WJZ-TV's Mike Hellgren is a serious one about a suspect in a road rage incident along I-83. The attack took place about 10 p.m. Friday night near the Maryland-Pennsylvania state line. It should be noted that the station has handled the story with the gravity and concern the subject matter and the victim's pain deserves. But what has some of the Internet buzzing is the resemblance between the suspect in a police sketch that accompanies the story and Hellgren, who is reporting the crime.

Maryland State Police are searching for a man who they said rear-ended a woman's vehicle on Interstate 83 in Parkton, offered her money to not call police and then violently attacked her when she dialed 911 on her cell phone.

As the state of Maryland considers whether to continue its suspension of Dr. Mark Geier's medical license ("Discredited Lupron therapy for autism still has backers," June 17), I think it's critical for readers of The Sun to fully understand the remarkable impact that his therapies are having for families like mine around the country. When our son Kit, who has autism, first started showing signs of violence more than two years ago, we were afraid that his unprovoked bursts of rage would result in disastrous consequences — to another child, or teacher at his school, or to my husband or me at home.
