I am appalled though not surprised to see your liberal socialist rag continue to fan the flames of controversy and racial tension by publishing an inflammatory and overly opinionated letter, such as the one in Saturday's "Your Turn" column by Maj. Gen. Leo Williams in which he arrogantly proclaims George Zimmerman to be guilty of murder and describes the incident as a "new lynching" ( "From lynchings to 'Stand Your Ground' killing," July 25)....

Regarding yet another article in your paper about the Ray Rice incident, The Sun is like a dog with a bone - it just won't give it up ( "Looking for silver lining in the ugliness of the Rice case," Sept. 27). Does anyone remember that the victim of this violence married the perpetrator? Must the NFL and the Ravens take all of the blame? How about a mention that our daughters should be taught not to slap men or anyone else? Confrontation can cause violence. Not that the punch was deserved.

In her column ("Big step forward for women's health" Aug 15) essentially advocating universal, free health care-on-demand for women, Susan Reimer sums up by stating, "It is about keeping the wives, mothers, daughters, and sisters of this country on their feet and caring for the rest of us ...

TORONTO - The starting lineup the Orioles fielded in Friday night's 4-2 loss to the Blue Jays at the Rogers Centre was missing 98 homers and 304 RBIs. Without Nelson Cruz, Adam Jones, Steve Pearce and J.J. Hardy, the Orioles were minus a significant amount of offensive punch. In Saturday's 4 p.m. game, expect to see Nick Markakis and Alejandro De Aza taking their day of rest. And expect Orioles manager Buck Showalter to begin using the bullpen en masse behind left-hander Wei-Yin Chen.

Caught between the need to rest his ailing left ankle and his desire to play, Ravens wide-out Lee Evans may err on the side of caution Sunday in St. Louis. Sitting out to allow the injury to heal is an option that Evans and the Ravens may find more palatable this week than they did in the first two games of the season. “We know that rest is one of the biggest things for it, which is why we try to approach the week the way we do,” Evans said. “We also want to be smart and not have the thing linger throughout the whole season.

Maryland linebacker Demetrius Hartsfield has torn his ACL and will miss the rest of the season, Terps coach Randy Edsall announced today. Hartsfield, a senior from Raleigh, N.C., suffered the injury on a running play with 2:20 remaining in the second quarter of Maryland's 33-13 loss to Georgia Tech. Hartsfield, who was blocked low on the play, had started all nine games this season. “This is another tough loss for the program,” Edsall said. “Demetrius is a captain and has been a leader of this defense both on and off the field.

Recently there have been several newspaper articles about the (Democratic) governor and the (Democrat-controlled) legislature shifting fiscal responsibilities on to local jurisdictions and dictating local spending levels for numerous programs. What the Maryland citizenry needs to understand is that liberals (Democrats) think they are much smarter than the rest of us. In their minds they have to impose themselves upon us because our ability to make decisions is so poor. I am not sure what Maryland is going to do when all the tax-paying residents move out of here as fast as they can. Goodbye, Maryland my Maryland.

Miguel Gonzalez was pretty down after Tuesday's 7-4 loss to the Tampa Bay Rays , a game in which the Orioles right-hander allowed three runs (two earned) in 5 2/3 innings. Those numbers alone aren't disturbing. But Gonzalez allowed eight hits and four walks in his start. And for the third time in five starts, Gonzalez didn't complete six innings. “That was a tough one. First inning was great and then I just had to battle the other innings,” Gonzalez said. “It's tough to pitch against a team that is playing good.

BLOOMINGTON, Ind. -- Maryland starting cornerback Alvin Hill had knee surgery Thursday and will miss the rest of the season, becoming the latest Terp to be ruled out for the rest of the year due to injury. Hill suffered a torn PCL during the Terps' win over Syracuse last week. Including Hill, Maryland has lost five players to season-ending injuries since the season began Aug. 30. Senior Jeremiah Johnson will take over for Hill as the starting cornerback opposite Will Likely.

Maryland defensive end Quinton Jefferson will miss the rest of the season because of a right knee injury he suffered during the Terps' loss to West Virginia on Sept. 13. Jefferson, who will undergo surgery Friday, had 47 tackles, 7 1/2 tackles for a loss and three sacks while starting all 13 games for Maryland last season. He had eight tackles and a sack in the first three games this year. This is another blow for a Terps defense that has dealt with injuries to several key players since the season began in late August.

It took 48 hours, but the disciplinary sanctions the Orioles were hoping for were passed down by Major League Baseball on Wednesday. Toronto Blue Jays starting pitcher Marcus Stroman was suspended six games and fined an undisclosed amount for throwing at Orioles catcher Caleb Joseph's head in the sixth inning Monday. “Like I said the time, I had a lot of confidence MLB would look at it and do what needs to be done,” Orioles manager Buck Showalter said. “I have a lot of confidence that when something like that happens, and emotions of players get in the way of good decisions, that the league office will remind them that certain things aren't tolerated.” After Stroman's 92-mph fastball sailed past Joseph's head, the rookie right-hander and both dugouts were warned by home plate umpire Ted Barrett.

Now that the Orioles have clinched the American League East title, the regular season is all over but the roster shuffling. The Orioles headed into Wednesday night trailing the Los Angeles Angels by three games for the top seed in the AL while leading the Detroit Tigers by seven games for the third seed. It puts the Orioles into a bit of a baseball limbo: Do they try to catch the Angels and not give their regulars as much rest over the next 11 games, or do they forget about trying to get home-field advantage throughout the playoffs, be happy with the No. 2 seed and try to spell their regulars?

With my job as a cartoonist and columnist for one the nation's biggest newspapers comes a modicum of minor celebrity, but I can't imagine a big market for naked pictures of myself. This is not the case for true celebrities, such as Jennifer Lawrence, Kate Upton, Kirsten Dunst, Kim Kardashian and Rihanna, who, along with as many as 100 others, had private nude photos of themselves stolen from Apple's iCloud storage system and posted for public perusal online. Whether the hackers who did this were out to make money or simply to prove their technological prowess, they caught the attention of the FBI, which is now investigating.

Taking months off from work and everyday responsibilities is something no one is ready for - especially a mother preparing for a new addition to her family. This is the situation Ellicott City resident Joannie Reisfeld found herself thrown into when she was placed on bed rest for two and a half months before the birth of her son, Zach. “I was used to being in charge of laundry and food, and you have to give up control at that point, and that can be very frustrating,” says Reisfeld, who delivered her now healthy 24-year-old son 10 weeks early at only 2 pounds, 10 ounces.

Dan Rodricks is indeed a lucky man. He received an apology from Verizon, and they are "reviewing his experience in order to learn from it and prevent similar situations … in the future" ( "Verizon to Rodricks: We're sorry," Feb. 28). Wow! Perhaps Mr. Rodricks should ask others to share their Verizon stories, which could be printed as a special edition to The Sun. These would be reviewed as a learning experience for Verizon. And maybe we could all get an apology. Peg McAllen, Towson

Maryland redshirt freshman wide receiver Taivon Jacobs will miss the rest of the season with the meniscus injury he suffered against James Madison on Saturday, coach Randy Edsall announced Monday on Twitter. Jacobs was injured two plays into the Terps' first drive when he got tangled up with a James Madison defender while attempting to track down a long pass from quarterback C.J. Brown. The news hurts the Terps at a position in which they already have lost depth. Jacobs likely would have played a significant role on offense this year, especially after his brother, Levern, was suspended for the season last week.

Ask some neighbors or colleagues about their Labor Day weekend tomorrow, and prepare to hear how busy it was. Several malls featured back to school sales, kids had a baseball tournament, lots of e-mails to catch up with at work, and the house needed some cleaning. We're too busy, goes the lament, to enjoy free time. Yet social scientists claim that the average work week for full-time employees since 1970 has fluctuated between 39 and 41 hours. This claim does include a range of variations.
