In her letter ("A Catholic for equality" September 29), Erma Durkin seems to be a devout Catholic and loves her gay son, but her conclusions are wrong. She wants her son's partnership to be elevated to the status of the traditional marriage and change the definition of marriage. Marriage is between a man and a woman; not a man and a man or a woman and a woman. Gays should be treated fairly and be able to go to the courthouse and get a civil union certificate that would give them all the legal protections they want.

Had somebody told me seven years ago when I started writing for The Sun that one day I would pen a column jointly praising Allan Kittleman and John Paul Stephens, I would have told her she was high. But that's the funny thing about weed, isn't it? It has the power to bring together otherwise different-minded people, including the 55-year-old Maryland Republican state senator and the 94-year-old retired Supreme Court associate justice, each of whom this month helped advance the long-overdue cause of marijuana legalization.

A caucus of the Baltimore Teachers Union has conducted its own survey which concluded that, of the sample participants, city teachers have been overwhelmingly dissatisfied with the union contract that is set to expire this month. According to the survey, conducted by the Educators for Democratic Schools, of the roughly 200 teachers polled, only 11 percent of respondents said they would vote for the contract--passed in 2010, and hailed as the most progressive in the country for its pay-for-performance structure--if faced with the decision again.

Contemplate sentiment. Say it aloud. Sentiment. Now hold your nose and say it aloud again.Hear what you just said? Sediment.Without really trying you have defined sentimentality, the vile pile of goo that sinks to the bottom of the emotional vat wherein sentiment, or feeling, is being distilled. Continue to hold your nose! Sentimentality emits a sickly-sweet stench. Hold on firmly as you pass through the book precinct of the Christmas-decorated Mall: 'tis the season when sentimentality reeks most ripe.

NEW YORK -- Stocks largely recouped Friday's losses yesterday amid signs that a rally might be on the horizon.The Dow Jones industrial average surged 37.83, to 3,174.41. The Dow regained most of the 39 points it lost Friday, when the average finished at its lowest level of the year. About 21 points of yesterday's advance reflected computer-driven buy orders, Birinyi Associates said."It's an oversold rally from Friday," said John Blair, head equity trader at County NatWest. "People were overly eager to sell" because of jitters about Sunday's presidential debate, among other concerns.

At the same time the government is preparing for billion-dollar deficits in Federal Deposit Insurance Corp. and depositors from Maryland to Maine are watching their financial institutions hover just above insolvency, the stock market has decided the outlook for banks is blooming.Share prices are up dramatically, including even the ones with the most tattered balance sheets, such as Baltimore-based MNC Financial Corp., Bank of Boston and the large New York money centers. The rise began months before last week's announcement of a broad, federally sponsored restructuring and has emerged seemingly out of the depths of despair.

Whether Robert "Lanky" Bilbrough, who grew up cheering for the late but not always lamented Philadelphia Athletics, fits the profile of an average baseball fan can't be arbitrarily decided, but it's his contention that he does -- a so-called member of the silent majority.Admittedly, it's one man's opinion. But he insists that as a spectator he is entitled to offer an observation, the same as any player, club owner or sportswriter. It's obvious from the tone of his talk that Bilbrough is not for keeping his feelings to himself.

This is for Vanessa in South Florida. She emailed me a few days ago after spotting a bumper sticker that read: 2012 Don't Re-Nig. "Honestly," she wrote, "I don't know how to process my outrage, so I'm handing it off to you. I know that President Obama's race has always been an issue to many people, and perhaps I live a relatively sheltered life in Democratic-leaning Broward County, but I'm still stunned by the sentiment. I'm even more stunned, naive though that may be, by the fact that some people believe it's appropriate to flaunt that sentiment -- and that it's not a source of shame.

Critics say Chuck Ecker is in over his head. And he very well could be. The Howard County executive, who has no political experience, admits he is politically naive, a quality that came more sharply into public focus almost immediately when Ecker -- who was elected on wave of anti-tax, cut-the-fat sentiment -- discovered the county was facing a $20 million deficit. To make a bad situation even worse, revenue for the fiscal year that starts July 1 is expected to be down an additional $24 million.

As the fight for the Republican presidential nomination now moves on to the Jan. 31 Florida primary, the 2012 phenomenon of the televised debate has elevated to a political art form playing to voters' prejudices and hates. Nothing has been more illustrative than the way the crafty and cunning Newt Gingrich turned the opening question in Thursday's debate in South Carolina into an attack on everybody's favorite whipping boy -- the news media. CNN moderator John King, a former Associated Press ace schooled in balanced reporting, asked Mr. Gingrich about his second wife's new allegation that he had asked for an "open" marriage while he was in a (later acknowledged)

— Hours after a 21-0 championship game and the conclusion of a bowl season that registered a downturn in television ratings, Bowl Championship Series conference commissioners met in a downtown hotel Tuesday to discuss possible changes to the postseason model. Could you blame them? The 14-year run of the BCS, which has two more years under the current contract, seems to have run its course. At the 2008 spring meetings, commissioners voted down a four-team playoff proposal offered by the Southeastern and Atlantic Coast conferences.

One of the ugliest chapters in American history seems all the more painful to recall right now, with the hideous toll of the earthquake and tsunami in Japan still climbing, still threatening. But that chapter — the prison camps for loyal American citizens of Japanese descent after the outbreak of World War II — provides the chilling backdrop of David Guterson's popular 1994 novel "Snow Falling on Cedars. " The book, which was turned into a film and, more recently, a play, spins a "To Kill a Mockingbird"-like tale of murder, suspicion and prejudice in the Pacific Northwest, early 1950s, filtered through the residue of anti-Japanese sentiment that the war left behind.

Aunt Tilly finally decided to give you that old dining room set you always loved, but countless family get-togethers have taken their toll. Or maybe you spotted a great antique credenza at a secondhand store, and its worn-out, scratched finish has you thinking twice. There are many reasons for refinishing older and antique furnishings. Whatever they are, there's no doubt refinishing or restoration can be an environmentally friendly and economical way to give older tables, chairs, chests and sideboards a new lease on life.

Most Tuesdays Americans wake up and know, pretty much, what the next day is going to look like. But today, Jan. 15, there is a powerful uncertainty: Will there be war tomorrow? And if we make it through Wednesday in peace, will be there war on Thursday? Or Friday?This is the day Americans hoped would never happen -- the deadline set by the United Nations for Iraqi withdrawal from Kuwait. The threat of war can now be counted in hours. The troop buildup has been massive and far-reaching -- a tribute to America's military prowess.

How can you buy or sell the sky, the warmth of the land?Listen to the words, a moving statement of modern ecological sentiment, attributed to Chief Seattle almost a century and a half ago as his response to federal offers of a reservation:The earth does not belong to man, man belongs to the earth. . . . When the buffalo are all slaughtered, the wild horses all tamed, the secret corners of the forest heavy with the scent of many men . . . say good-bye to the end of living and the beginning of survival.

I n Virginia they've been massing on the Capitol steps. In Massachusetts they put a Republican in a Senate seat held by Democrats since 1952. In Maryland they're protesting the proposed alternate base period for unemployment benefits. Here in the liberal Free State, you stage your Tea Parties over whatever issue you can. Opposition to a federal bailout of Maryland's unemployment fund is channeling the anti-government energy that gets aimed at less humdrum targets elsewhere.
