Dave King's eyes, bleary as the Olympic grind winds up, still see what others miss -- the weaknesses of an enemy he must exploit, the strengths he must shut down.King must see clearly against one more opponent in the Winter Games: the Unified Team in today's gold-medal hockey game.The Canadian hockey coach refrained from getting excited Friday night when his country clinched its first medal in 24 years. Canada hasn't won the gold since 1952."I'm going to wait 'til it's over," King said in a voice that has grown scratchier as the Olympics have worn on. "I don't really ever celebrate very much anyway.

While there may be hard choices in Iraq, military intervention in that nation is not warranted considering the role that Iran has played in supporting the government of Prime Minister Nouri Kamal al-Maliki ( "Hard choice in Iraq," June 16). Certainly, the international community including the U.S. has made tragic mistakes in the ongoing conflict in the Middle East, but only minimal diplomatic intervention for the time being should be considered. The obvious solution at the present is to withdraw from the now escalating war between Shiites and Sunnis, particularly in light of the more radical elements gaining control.

Despite opposition from the state and all eight candidates vying for their jobs, Carroll's two lame-duck commissioners plan to vote tonight on several land-use decisions that could turn hundreds of acres of farmland into factories and shopping centers. In all, the commissioners will consider about 50 requests to alter zoning on parcels throughout the county. State planning officials are particularly concerned about 16 parcels that, if rezoning is approved, would make about 400 acres of agricultural and conservation land available for commercial, industrial and residential uses.

The No. 14 Johns Hopkins football team is tied for fourth in Division III in sacks with 23, and a good portion of the credit goes to the defensive front four of junior defensive ends Michael Longo and Michael Connery, senior defensive tackle Joe DiTrolio and junior defensive tackle Michael Rocca. That group has accounted for 9½ sacks and been the foundation of the defense, according to coach Jim Margraff. "I think our defense is playing at a very high level right now," he said Wednesday.

GET 'EM young, keep 'em honest and keep 'em there," went the refrain of party bosses, especially in the South. Seniority mattered in legislatures. This was matched by the first law of incumbents: "My first responsibility to my constituents is to get re-elected."

All summer long, in bars and dance clubs and cars with stereos cranked up, it was almost impossible to escape Nelly's refrain, "It's gettin hot in here ... so take off all your clothes." With any luck, the catchy lyrics were a sign of the temperature at the St. Louis rapper's concert tour, which comes to Washington's MCI Center Saturday. Armed with a lineup that includes rappers Lil Wayne, Big Tymers and Fabolous, the Nellyville tour looks set to be a hit. Nelly's ubiquitous hits "Hot in Herre" and "Dilemma" alone may be worth the trek.

HEY, HAVE you heard? NBA playoff games are fixed! Silly question. Of course you've heard it. David Stern has heard it for at least a decade. Worse, he knows that everyone else had heard it. It's spring, the talk-show hosts saw their shadows, and that means six more weeks of conspiracy theories. If you wonder why the commissioner went nuclear in response to what seemed like another round of playoff coaches' gamesmanship this week, that's why. Because he heard that tired refrain one too many times: "We can't get any calls because the NBA wants Team X or Player Y to win [or lose]

Maryland didn't fire the first salvo, but may have fired the most significant one when it upended reigning national champion and top-ranked Loyola, 12-10, on Saturday. The Terps will likely move into the top spot of virtually every poll in the lacrosse community (including The Sun's) and will be regaled all week as the team to beat in Division I - until they visit No. 12 Duke this Saturday. That's all well and good, but Maryland is doing its best to take the 3-0 start in stride. “It's only one game,” coach John Tillman said.

A prominent Idaho businessman has lost his job after allegedly slapping a toddler on a plane when the child wouldn't stop crying. While many parents and fliers can agree that "Toddlers on a Plane" would be a terrifying premise for a film, most of us can figure out that hitting a stranger's child is not OK. But what steps can parents take to lessen their children's impact on other passengers? Some people swear by slipping kids a little Benadryl , but I've never gone this route.

The U.S. Supreme Court takes up the issue of racial preference in college admissions on Wednesday, and that ought to be a concern for those who believe such policies have provided countless opportunities for minorities - and enriched the educational experience for whites. There is a growing movement in this country to eliminate affirmative action on the grounds that it's no longer needed - or was even helpful in the first place. Granted, this can be a complex issue, and even the most liberal interpretations of the race-conscious policy acknowledge that a balance must be struck to make colleges diverse but also keep the admissions process fair and merit-based.

An attorney representing Kenneth D. Perry, accused of committing a double murder in 1998, tried Friday to methodically take apart a homicide detective's investigation of the case during the defendant's second trial in Baltimore Circuit Court. Attorney Janice Bledsoe zeroed in repeatedly during cross-examination on what she termed failures or inconsistencies in the investigation of the murders of Perry's former girlfriend, LaShawn Jordan, and her friend Kelly Bunn in a Reservoir Hill apartment.

Michael Sidney Guest Jr. shot Jamal Taylor above the right eye with a .38-caliber revolver on Aug. 8, 1993. The killing occurred during an argument among teenagers inside an apartment on Forest Park Avenue in Northwest Baltimore. Both Taylor and Guest were 15. But Michael Sidney Guest Jr. didn't spend a lot of time in prison. His case file is convoluted, but boiled down, it shows he served just five years behind bars for second-degree murder. Sounding a familiar refrain, court records show Guest spent his short life ricocheting from the streets to drugs to police to judges to prison cells - and back to the streets again.

Thursday's stock market decline was just what Ben Bernanke needed. If people keep bidding up stocks with the cheap money he's handing out, he'll go down in history as the dumbest central banker ever, the one who blew a new investment bubble while he was still sweeping up the shards of the previous two. But if he takes away the cheap money, unemployment goes toward 15 percent, the highest since the Depression. That won't help his reputation, either. It'll be a close call.

Gettysburg park should remember all who fought and died The Sun's article "The Last Battle" (July 1) seemed primed to persuade readers that the focus of the Gettysburg National Battlefield should be on why the battle was fought, rather than how. As a member of the armed forces, I disagree. The purpose of a battlefield park is not to serve as a platform for some group's political views or agendas or slant on history. It is to remember those who fought and died for our country. And, yes, Confederate soldiers were part of our country.
