EASTON - "Send them a message," I told Talbot County Circuit Judge William Horne as I sat on the witness stand.It was Aug. 7. We had gathered in Horne's court for the sentencing of Anthony Tyrone Mills, who had been found guilty of second-degree murder in the slaying of my brother Tyrone Kane on Nov. 25. I took the stand to speak on my family's behalf. I spoke of how my brother's death had devastated us, but added that the people of Easton, of Talbot County and the state of Maryland were also victims.

I am a proud Baltimore native and have been a Ravens fan since the football team moved here in 1996. I am also a pastor and an advocate against domestic violence and rape culture. The behavior of running back Ray Rice, who was accused of knocking out his then fiancee (now wife) during an altercation in Atlantic City, has embarrassed me enough to question being a Ravens fan. The pathetic punishment from the NFL — a two game suspension — has made me question my continued support for the league.

Paris -- The NATO air strike Monday on Udbina in Serb-held Croatia was another demonstration of the futility that has overtaken Western policy in what formerly was Yugoslavia.Both it and yesterday's second strike in retaliation for rocket fire against NATO planes were meticulously planned and controlled to do no significant damage. U.N. and NATO officers designed them to pose minimum risk to those Serb forces in Croatia who in the past few days have carried out their own air raids on the Muslim-held town of Bihac, in defiance both of Bihac's status as a U.N.-proclaimed ''safe area'' and the U.N. and NATO's long-proclaimed but little-enforced air exclusion zone.

There appeared to be a sense of relief at The Castle after the NFL announced Ravens running back Ray Rice would be suspended only two games stemming from an altercation with his then-fiancee in a New Jersey casino in February. But NFL commissioner Roger Goodell sent the wrong message, especially when it comes to a very serious allegation of domestic abuse. The suspension was for violating the league's personal conduct policy. Rice will also forfeit a third game check, for a total fine of about $529,000.

CAMBRIDGE, Mass. -- Like so many great innovations, it happened by serendipity. Looking for one thing, people often discover another.It was 1971, and Ray Tomlinson, a young computer engineer here was working on hardware, then software for a new system being developed at Bolt Baranek and Newman (BBN), a computer consulting company. A giant parallel project was building the ARPANET, under government contract, so research information could be exchanged simply and uniformly between a few American universities.

Your little one tells you that he hates his friend and won't play with him anymore."Of course you want to play with him/her again," you say, trying to soothe your child. "And don't say you hate him; he's your best friend. You shouldn't feel that way."Whether your child should or shouldn't feel that way is not the issue. He does feel that way. And, when you try to talk him out of his feelings, you do three things, each destructive:* You send a message that his feeling is wrong (feelings are neither right nor wrong, rather they are a gut response to a person or situation)

To Mozetta Smith, the mug shot on the orange flier that police handed out looked familiar. Still, after scouring her memory, Smith could not quite remember where she had seen convicted felon Collin Hawkins - but for sure, she was pleased he was off the street. Hawkins, 26, is a drug dealer and carjacker who was acquitted last month in the attempted murder of an off-duty city police officer. But Hawkins was also sentenced recently to 30 years in federal prison for a handgun violation - a conviction local and federal authorities held up as a success story in a two-year-old partnership.

Two men were convicted Friday of randomly firing into a group of young people, killing a 12-year-old boy and wounding three others in an attempt to "send a message" to their East Baltimore neighbors. In May 2011, prosecutors said, Danyae Robinson, 31, and Derrick Brown, 20, fired at least 15 shots, seeking to avenge the shooting earlier that night of a fellow gang member — even though their victims had nothing to do with their gang's rivals or the earlier shooting. "This was a deplorable, unconscionable act of violence that hurt many and took the life of one of our young people," State's Attorney Gregg Bernstein said in a statement.

One would think in the age live in our political leaders down the road in Washington would seriously seek answers to the debacle in Syria rather than "strategically" drop bombs on empty buildings. But here we go again (" Amid doubts, Obama and Cameron make a case for Syria strike," Aug. 29). This is pathetic and unacceptable. When will we as a nation strive to diffuse international crises through real diplomacy and dialogue? As a supposedly advanced nation, why are we still perceived as the world's watchdog?

SAN DIEGO - Over the past week, as pending suspensions tied to the Biogenesis investigation loomed over the game, the Orioles players and management tried to conduct business as normal. And when 50-games suspensions were handed out to 12 players Monday afternoon - plus a suspension of New York Yankees slugger Alex Rodriguez through the 2014 season - the Orioles avoided the stain of scandal. “I don't think anybody is naive, and you shouldn't be,” Orioles manager Buck Showalter said.

This is how good the Orioles are going now: even Jon Lester can't stop them anymore. You remember Lester, of course. The Boston Red Sox lefty used to be the Orioles' personal Grim Reaper. All that was missing was the cloak with the hood and the scythe. Lester was where base hits went to die, where batting averages withered like dried husks, where all hope vanished if you wore the orange and black. But not anymore. The Orioles' 6-3 win over the Red Sox at a packed Camden Yards on Sunday afternoon proved that.

The Ravens caught a big break when the NFL overturned Ed Reed's one-game suspension on appeal Tuesday and instead imposed a $50,000 fine for his third violation of the league's player safety rules over the past three seasons. Reed will be able to practice this week and play in Sunday's game in San Diego, and the Ravens will not be missing a third key starter in the defensive secondary against the pass-happy San Diego Chargers. So, all's well that ends well, right? Not necessarily.
