Following yet another tax increase shoved down our throats by the spend-then-tax trio of the Gov.Martin O'Malley, Senate President Thomas V. Mike Miller and House SpeakerMichael E. Busch("General Assembly raises income tax on top 14 percent," May 17), there is one positive aspect: At least they didn't scurry about in the middle of the night like cockroaches as they did when passing a record tax hike in 2007. When will Maryland voters learn? Gary Sulin, Forest Hill

Even as we continued to dissect the National Football League's mishandling of the Ray Rice case and millionaires associated with the matter apologized (again) for being obtuse to domestic violence, the conversation seemed to turn toward a silver lining. To wit: Maybe good will come of this ugliness. The NFL's inadequate reaction to Rice's assault unleashed strong public backlash, heightened awareness of the everyday reality of intimate-partner abuse and forced the league and the Baltimore Ravens to make big-time amends, including a six-figure donation to the House of Ruth Maryland.

The door at 831 N. Howard St. swings open to one of Baltimore's more charming salesrooms. But Friday, when I stopped by the place known as the Imperial Half Bushel, it was a dispiriting and depressing sight. The 19th-century walnut and oak showcases were empty. Gone were the silver forks and spoons made by Baltimore silversmiths. The water pitchers, the cups, the napkin holders had disappeared. Sometime between Sept. 17 and Sept. 20, thieves looted $100,000 worth of silver from this little shop located on a stretch known as Antiques Row. Fred and Nancy Duggan and their son, Patrick, opened their silver business in 1976.

An 8-7 double-overtime loss to the Rochester Rattlers a week ago left the Chesapeake Bayhawks with their fifth defeat in six games. But the play of the defense planted a few seeds for hope. The unit allowed a season low in goals and also limited a Rochester offense that had scored 18 goals in a rout of the Florida Launch on June 1. Chesapeake goalkeeper Kip Turner, an Annapolis native and Severn School graduate, made a season-high 18 saves. “Rochester scored 18 goals the week before, and we held them to seven through overtime,” Bayhawks coach Dave Cottle said during a league-wide conference call on Wednesday.

New NBA commissioner Adam Silver apparently is not one to waste words, or the opportunity to show who's boss. He certainly wasted no time upending all the experts and legal analysts who were predicting that he would take a measured approach to punishing Los Angeles Clippers owner Donald Sterling for the caught-on-tape comments about African Americans that sparked a painful new national debate on race in America. Silver walked up to that podium in midtown Manhattan on Tuesday afternoon and needed just a couple of minutes to express the NBA's righteous outrage and say that he was banning Sterling from the league for life while initiating a process that he believes will compel Sterling to sell his team.
