While is it generally unwise to read too much into local elections from a handful of states, Tuesday's results produced a message writ too large to ignore. If Republicans want to win over swing voters, they'll need to produce candidates more like New Jersey's pragmatic Chris Christie than Virginia's tea party darling, Ken Cuccinelli II. Governor Christie's 22-point win was as large and loud as the candidate himself. He won by a landslide in a state where Democrats outnumber Republicans by gaining the support from a remarkable number (at least by GOP standards)

I am a Baltimore police officer in what is often termed the "hood" in the Eastern District. It is an impoverished, predominantly African-American neighborhood where children often don't have enough to eat or live in apartments where the lights have been turned off. Some are homeless. In communities like ours, tension and distrust often characterize the relationship between law enforcement and residents. It is an unfortunate reality that can contribute to higher crime, unaccountable officers and witnesses afraid to come forward.

It is refreshing that Maryland Comptroller Peter Franchot opposes an increase in the state's debt ceiling ("Franchot: Maryland can't keep borrowing and spending," Jan. 4). The impassioned "loyalty oath" to the Democratic Party contained in his letter to The Sun is illustrative of the dysfunction that is American politics and the cause of its political gridlock: A need in people to take sides and stubbornly, at times blindly, perpetuate this awful two-party system by avowing support for everything on their party's agenda.

Armed with paper, pens, felt and glue, the middle-school girls could have very well set out to create pictures or simple crafts. Instead, sitting in small groups, they brainstormed, they problem-solved, they engineered. And they had a whole lot of fun. That's the message women's engineering students at the Johns Hopkins University tried to sell to more than 100 girls who attended a university program yesterday to promote the male-dominated profession to females. Participants were asked to develop solutions for disabled people - such as inventing shoes that a person without arms could put on or a sled that a person with a spinal cord deficiency could ride - and then construct a prototype.

The man strolled through the Bel Air jewelry store, scanning cases of diamonds and wedding bands along with other customers. He had bought his girlfriend a promise ring a few months back, JM Jewelers owner Edgar Milad recalled him saying, and now he wanted the real thing. He wanted to check with his fiancee before making a purchase, however, and told Milad he'd be back. Three hours later, he returned - with a gun. Police say the man and an accomplice made off with more than $500,000 in jewels Monday after forcing Milad into the store's bathroom, said Robert B. Thomas, a spokesman for the Harford County Sheriff's Office.

If you grew up reading Nancy Drew mysteries, your pulse may quicken to hear that Simon and Schuster is publishing a new, updated series. Thumbing through the new books will awaken fond memories. Bess Marvin and George Fayne are still Nancy's close chums. Ned Nickerson remains her "special friend," although his extracurricular activities include reading books at Emerson College rather than quarterbacking the football team. Nancy's father, Carson Drew, is still a hot-shot local lawyer, and Hannah Gruen -- the Drews' housekeeper -- continues to fret over Nancy's safety (albeit with considerably less cause in the modern books)

DRENCHED IN praise for their statesmanship, three of Maryland's most influential leaders offered a grim preview of the coming legislative frolic in Annapolis. To achieve any sort of positive outcome for the state, they'll have to be as "truly unparalleled," "superior" and "brilliant" as they were said to be. One of these worthies was said to have "a golden star above him." Surely they are skillful and accomplished. By their own candid appraisals of the state's political and fiscal posture, the usual skill level may not suffice this year.

Had Microsoft Corp.'s lawyers glanced at inventor Michael Doyle's artwork, one drawing in particular would have given them pause. Looking out from his life-size self-portrait is an inquisitive person with an unwavering gaze - someone who never gives up. Doyle will need his resolve to continue waging the legal fight of his life, which culminated Aug. 11 in a $520 million patent-infringement award, the second-biggest in legal history. If the federal jury's verdict is upheld over Microsoft's anticipated appeal, his tiny company, Eolas Technologies Inc., will have the legal power to enforce its Web browser patent to collect additional millions from a broad swath of Internet software players.
