So, after decades of literal open-warfare in the city driven by the drug trade, it takes a transplanted police commissioner from that bastion of safety, Oakland, Calif., to tell us that crime in the city is primarily limited to those who live and operate in the drug culture and that the "good guys and gals" should feel safe ("Batts: Crime dropped for 'everyday citizens' in 2013," Dec. 31). I can't wait for the new fire chief from the mega-metropolis of Lincoln, Neb., to tell us that the increased fire deaths in the city are primarily the result of smoke inhalation.

Ocean City fire investigators believe that the man who entered a church on fire, igniting a blaze that killed its pastor, had poured gasoline on himself as part of a suicide plot. The fire marshal's office said Tuesday that John Raymond Sterner covered himself in fuel and set himself on fire just before he burst into St. Paul's by the Sea Episcopal Church as volunteers were opening a Thanksgiving food bank Nov. 26. Sterner died in the blaze, which quickly spread and was responsible for the death of the Rev. David A. Dingwall, whom firefighters found unconscious on the second floor.
