Now I understand what prompted Carl O. Snowden's three arrests for driving under the influence: emotional trauma ("City police detail marijuana arrest of Md. civil rights official Snowden," April 24). Yes, Maryland's esteemed and first director of the Office of Civil Rights in the Maryland State Attorney General's Office needs a drink to deal with the pain. Truly a sympathetic figure. I think the state would be well served in this era of austerity by eliminating Mr. Snowden's position following what we are assured to be his windfall payment from his lawsuit against Anne Arundel County.

The Annapolis housing authority created a new position for Carl O. Snowden, whom the city's mayor decided not to reappoint to the authority's board. Snowden's five-year term as chairman of the board of the Housing Authority of the City of Annapolis is due to expire at the end of July. Mayor Mike Pantelides declined to reappoint Snowden. The housing authority board voted on Monday night to create a new position called "chairman emeritus" and appointed Snowden to the position. Snowden announced his new position later Monday at the Annapolis City Council meeting, after lambasting the mayor.

Carl O. Snowden, the civil rights chief at the Maryland Office of the Attorney General, will go before a Baltimore jury Friday afternoon on marijuana charges. Snowden, 59, was arrested in April, along with Anthony Hill, 29. Officers testified before the trial began that they approached Snowden's car when it was parked in Druid Hill Park, just off Reisterstown road. They said they found a brown cigar containing what they thought was marijuana as well as a plastic bag they believed they contained more in Hill's pocket.

Carl O. Snowden, a longtime Annapolis activist and director of the Office of Civil Rights for the attorney general's office, was arrested early Tuesday and charged with alcohol-related driving offenses, according to Anne Arundel police. Snowden, 55, was arrested after a county police officer saw his Acura Integra drifting in and out of his southbound lane on Route 97 near Farm Road in Crownsville, police said. It was Snowden's third DUI arrest since 2002. Shortly before 1:30 a.m., the arresting officer reported that Snowden veered across the center line and straddled the shoulder several times before the officer pulled him over.

In the year since Edward Snowden's first leaks, the reputation of the U.S. intelligence services has taken a beating, especially by the millennial generation. After everything that's been said about the alleged malevolence of the CIA and the other agencies, many in the under-33 set wonder why anyone would want to get mixed up with them. As a millennial who grew up on a steady diet of scandals - in business, government and even religious organizations - that shook our confidence in almost every major institution, I get it. I'm a natural skeptic, too. But when I took an intelligence job in my early 20s, I encountered a different, heartening reality.

I was surprised by your editorial on the NBC interview with Edward Snowden ( "Snowden speaks," May 29). I consider myself fairly objective, yet I heard very different responses from Mr. Snowden than the editorial suggests. It was almost a cognitive dissonance, as though I had watched a different show. For example, I did not hear Mr. Snowden saying he would like to be a hero. I heard a highly intelligent and relatively humble Mr. Snowden saying he did what he felt was right for the American people.

Your editorial urging Edward Snowden to return and face the consequences of his civil disobedience would have been appropriate as recently as 15 years ago ( "Snowden speaks," May 30). Back then, there was a country called the United States of America that did not practice torture, conduct secret trials, detain suspects indefinitely and execute citizens without trial. Unfortunately, if you want Mr. Snowden to return to that country, you'll have to provide him with a time machine.

Let history decide whether Edward Snowden is a hero or traitor ( "Snowden speaks," May 30). After reading "No Place to Hide" by Glenn Greenwald, that question is moot. I was shocked by what the book revealed. Whether the information Mr. Snowden provided is true or not, we need to know. Believing our government is creating a data base of my phone calls, my emails, my postings on Facebook, my comments on Twitter (if I made any) and my communication through Skype is horrific. It is vital to find out if what Mr. Snowden leaked is, indeed, fact.

Accused National Security Agency leaker Edward Snowden was handed a golden opportunity to justify himself Wednesday when he was asked by NBC's Brian Williams whether the American public should view his unauthorized release of thousands of classified U.S. government documents to the media as a principled act of civil disobedience or as a betrayal of his country — and he blew it. The interview, taped last week, took place at a hotel in Moscow, where...

NBC News and anchorman Brian Williams have not done journalistic work the quality of Wednesday night's exclusive interview with Edward Snowden in a long, long time. Since NBC News had the interview for a week, according to Williams, it could have done more reporting on some of Snowden's statements. For example, he said he was not merely a systems analyst or the "hacker" as President Obama dismissively characterized him, but rather an employee of the Central Intelligence Agency and the National Security Agency trained as a traditional spy. He said he worked overseas under fake names in cover occupations for both agencies.

The Pulitzer Prizes to two news outlets that cooperated with whistleblower Edward Snowden in the disclosure of widespread National Security Agency surveillance of electronic communications at home and abroad has U.S. officialdom in a dither. With the exiled Mr. Snowden harbored in Russia and widely branded at home as a traitor for leaking the voluminous evidence to reporters working for The Washington Post and the U.S. arm of Britain's Guardian newspaper, the Pulitzer committee came down squarely on the side of freedom of the press.
