With the recent changes to the state law directed toward the sharing of the road with bicycles I have seen a dramatic increase in bicyclists behaving unsafely. The traffic laws apply to everyone on the road. Obeying stop signs, traffic signals and driving on the right side of the road only seems to apply when the bicyclists feel like it. The three-feet rule is for both the motorist and bicyclist. When traffic is stopped (for a light), why doesn't the bicyclist stop when there is not three feet of room around the traffic?

Commentator Ned Holstein makes excellent points about the values of shared parenting agreements ( "Joint custody should be the rule, not the exception," Oct. 8). As a policy analyst in very progressive California, Mr. Holstein and I have differing viewpoints on some issues; however, shared parenting has been proven time and again to be the most effective and beneficial custody arrangement. My particular focus regarding custody issues is on domestic violence - its prevalence, reduction and role in custody disputes.

I am sure I will take some flack for this. But here goes anyhow. Our elected leaders are mostly talk and no action. Why? Because they know we as a country are short of the cash it takes to get things done. Remember it is always the money. The rest of us are just whining, and hoping somebody else will fix the problems. So here's an idea. Add a $1 tax to all the gasoline sold in this country for one year. Let the individual states collect it, keep half, and send the rest to the federal government.

Dawn Root's life took a serendipitous turn two years ago, one that eventually brought her to talk about her mother's death as a way to fight domestic violence. The Glen Burnie resident spoke as an advocate and survivor Tuesday at the fifth annual candlelight vigil held by HopeWorks, a Howard County agency that serves victims of sexual, dating and domestic violence. The event, held in Columbia, marked October's designation as Domestic Violence Awareness Month across the country. Root told the gathering of 40 people wearing purple ribbons that she is on a mission to speak to audiences across the Baltimore area "since living in the darkness wasn't serving me, and I realized it was time to leave negativity behind.

Michael Phelps' phone rang as he headed to the Olympic pool here on Wednesday. "Michael?" he heard. "Please hold for the president of the United States. " "OK!" Phelps said. President Obama wanted to tell him that everyone back home was proud of him becoming the world's most decorated Olympian after he won his 19th medal Tuesday night. Then, the two very busy men said their goodbyes, but not before Obama had one final thing to say. "He finished by saying, 'Make sure you tell your mom I said hi,'" Phelps said.

It is amazing how the Under Armour line of apparel has caught on with the school kids. I had a chance to attend grandfather's day recently and stood in the back of the room watching the kids sitting on the floor and singing. Initially, I thought all of the kids were in uniform, but when I looked more closely I was surprised to see that all the shirts bore the Under Armour logo. Also, at a recent soccer game many of the players' fathers also wore shirts with the Under Amour logo.

Jenna Miller agreed to marry her longtime boyfriend, Benjamin Woods, just months after he rescued her from near-certain death by performing CPR when she experienced a sudden cardiac arrest. But on Jan. 8, two weeks after their first wedding anniversary, her heart gave out again, and she died as Woods held her in his arms. Miller — with her fiery red hair, bright smile and plans to help others — died at age 26 of cardiac arrest brought on by a decade of binge-eating and purging.

Nicholas Cuttonaro relishes the chance to grab a spicy tuna roll at his favorite sushi restaurants, Sushi Ya in Owings Mills and Sushi Sono in Columbia. But a couple of months ago, he decided to make his sushi-eating experience more interactive by signing up for a class in which he honed his knife skills and learned how to make sticky rice to place inside a sushi roll. The instructor at Pikesville's For the Love of Food offered students the chance to experiment with tuna, salmon, lobster and shrimp.

Think you're excited for some Orioles playoff action? Consider Trufflz, who may be more excited than anyone else in town. Trufflz is a 4-year-old shih tzu owned by Caryn Green, who lives in Mount Washington and works at Glarus Chocolatier in Timonium - hence the pup's name. She has an impressive collection of orange and black toys that Green collects every Halloween and is spending much of her time this week in an Orioles tutu and hair bow. “We are waiting for our Orioles to triumph in the post-season and hopefully bring that World Series trophy back to Baltimore,” says Green, who's also a life-long fan of the team.

Thank you for staying on top of Maryland's chicken companies for their unfair advantage in our state's politics ( "Perdue's ruffled feathers," Sept. 22). I've been an avid supporter of Food & Water Watch for many years and appreciate their hard work highlighting that not only does Jim Perdue "have a seat at the table," he also has a seat in the governor's mansion. It's time for "big chicken" to pay their fair share. Stephanie Compton, Baltimore - To respond to this letter, send an email to talkback@baltimoresun.com .

When James H. McDonald was 16, back when Baltimore was legally segregated, he set out to apply for a job in a drugstore a few blocks into the white side of town. Almost as soon as he'd set foot over Fulton Avenue, the dividing line, he had company. "This gentleman - he said he was a policeman - asked what I was doing there," said McDonald, now 80. McDonald, who was followed to the store to prove that there was indeed a job opening, offered the story Monday as an example of life before the civil-rights activists made inroads, before the Rev. Martin Luther King Jr.'s "I Have a Dream" speech and long before a black man was elected president.

Regarding the officer who beat a citizen near North Avenue recently, both these men share guilt ( "Baltimore officer is suspended after video of beating is released," Sept. 16). The policeman was wrong for letting his emotions get in the way, and the individual was wrong to provoke him. Until Baltimore and the nation hold both the cops and the people they interact with responsible for their behavior, such conflicts are inevitable.
