There should be no doubt that President Obama's disgusting and disrespectful salute to the Marines saluting him as he exited Marine One with a cup of coffee in his hand is actually how Mr. Obama really feels in his heart about our men in women in uniform ( "A disrespectful presidential salute," Sept. 27). In my 28 year of active service in two war zones I have never witnessed such a disregard for military custom and tradition, and it's a real shame that this was carried out by our commander-in-chief while our brave warriors serve in harm's way around the globe . Of course, Mr. Obama has not apologized for this, yet he apologizes all the time for our great country to the princes of the Middle east.

Thanks to the initiatives taken under President George W. Bush and to the international cooperation under President Obama, the United States has finally located Osama Bin Laden. I salute our brave men and women, some who have made the ultimate sacrifice, and our often forgotten intelligence community for making this possible! William T. Capps Jr., Laurel

Only in minor league baseball could you find an event titled “Salute to Bacon Night.” On July 13, the Norfolk Tides -  the Orioles' Triple-A team - are attempting to set the record for largest BLT ever created as part of this bacon-themed night. The sandwich is going to be more than 300 feet in length, topping the record of 224 feet and 3 inches that was set last year in Missouri. The sandwich won't go to waste, though. Slices of it will be for sale throughout the game, with all proceeds going towards the Food Bank of Southeastern Virginia.

About 1,000 guests gathered in the Towson Center to salute and support the Maryland Shock Trauma Center, raising $157,000. After a gourmet dinner, the highlight of the evening came when Hero Awards were presented to Maryland police officers, firefighters and emergency medical systems workers who helped save lives in the past year. Honorees included Shock Trauma surgeon Dr. Carnell Cooper and attending physician Dr. Neal Reynolds; Lutherville firefighters P. Adam Zoltowski, George Goeb and Lt. Tony Tulio; and Shock Trauma nurse Sue Murawski.

THEIR average age was 31. They were skilled craftsmen. Many had wives and children. Many more had been employed at high wages in shipyards and war plants. And few were subject to the draft. And they're due a smart salute on Labor Day because many of them were laborers. Their story was first told by William Huie in "Can Do!: The story of the Seabees" in 1944. They were steam fitters and lumberjacks, surveyers, welders, demolition men, machinists, plumbers, electricians, longshoremen, carpenters and road graders.

For many of us, Leonard Bernstein will always loom large. The conductor/composer/mentor/mensch left an enormous mark not just on the classical music and theater worlds, but on the world, period. I owe a lot of my own views about music and, especially, music-making to Bernstein. Although I only met him once, and all too briefly, during a crazy evening that started at the Kennedy Center and ended up at the Watergate Hotel (no, silly, not that kind of evening), I came to feel that he was a part of my life somehow.

If there's any joy in Baltimore this week, it comes from baseball and the Orioles. With this frustrating city having slipped into another cycle of summer shootings - one of them ending the life of a 3-year-old girl - I guess we turn to baseball for communal relief from all that's awful, all that makes us angry and weary. Having the Orioles in first place helps. And, further, it helps to hear a pleasant fellow named Mike Cataneo tell why his father bought four season tickets to Orioles games 60 years ago, for the team's inaugural season here.

Although some customs have changed — and in spite of omnipresent ear buds and texting — the custom of greeting people still exists. I remember my grandfather lifting his hat as he passed, without speaking to, the female supervisors on our school playground. He lifted it when he passed a neighbor coming into his apartment building and removed it when we stepped inside the ancient elevator there. Except for baseball caps, few men today wear hats. It is refreshing to see them removed in a house or restaurant.

Richard Harryman was wearing a crisp blue shirt for the occasion, and his hospital bed was in the living room. There were punch and cookies on a table in the hall, and family and friends were waiting when a car arrived carrying four midshipmen. Harryman, 85, served in both the Marine Corps and the Air Force. The midshipmen were there to deliver a final salute to a dying veteran. In a program unique among the service academies, young people from the Naval Academy, on the threshold of their military careers, are visiting veterans at the end of their lives to acknowledge their service as only another member of the military can. "Detail, cover," senior Kimberly Bernardy barked gently, and in unison the mids pulled their hats from beneath their arms and slowly put them in place.

The death of Mickey Rooney has your Midweek Madness provider feeling nostalgic -- and grateful that the late star left behind a fine enough overall body of work to make up for his hideous impersonation of a Japanese character in "Breakfast at Tiffany's" (talk about mad). One of my favorite Mickey moments is "Treat Me Rough" from the 1943 film musical "Girl Crazy. " (That's June Allyson, making her film debut, at the start of the number.) I think this is just the thing for a little midweek diversion, don't you?
