Recently we have often been asked: What if your daughter had been in Janay Rice's shoes, wouldn't you demand stern justice? As the mother of a daughter, the answer is that of course I would. However, I am also the mother of a son. Why don't we hear the question: What if your son had been in Ray Rice's shoes? If my son had been in that position, I would demand stern justice as well. However, I would demand justice to be rational and consider that - by all accounts - there had been no pattern of abuse and that, also certainly relevant, there had been a long-time and consistent pattern of exemplary community service and outreach by Mr. Rice.

A couple of weeks ago, we reached a milestone in my house. My older son got his learner's permit. It's been nerve-wracking riding with him as he learns to negotiate traffic circles, four-way stops and merge lanes. But as scary as it seems riding with him, I'm more worried about the day when he drives without me. According to a new survey commissioned by AT&T, 43 percent of teens admit to texting while drivingĀ and 75 percent say their friends do it all the time. With prom and graduation season upon us, the phone company has launched a campaign, It Can Wait, to educate kids about the dangers of texting while driving.

I would like to take a personal moment to recognize the outstanding contributions of our family's "honorary son," 1st Lt. James P. Downs, whom we all call Pat. Pat is currently stationed with the U.S. Army in southern Afghanistan. He is a 2002 graduate of St. Vincent Pallotti High School and graduated from Salisbury University in 2007 with honors. After college, Pat spent time training professional athletes in speed, endurance and nutrition. He then answered our country's call and enlisted in the armed services.

KENYA IS SUCH an important African country that it matters to the rest of the world who will succeed President Daniel arap Moi when his 25-year rule ends in four months. That question matters so much to Mr. Moi as well that he wants the ruling party to consider only his choice. When Vice President George Saitoti dared to promote his own candidacy, he was summarily fired. Since its independence from Britain in 1963, Kenya has had only two presidents. And Mr. Moi insists that the first president's son, Uhuru Kenyatta, should succeed him, although half a dozen other ruling party officials of the Kenya African National Union (KANU)

In her son's case, death followed a slow and agonizing descent into gangs and criminal activity. "When my mother came to the end, I was not surprised," Poindexter said.

The father of WWE's biggest star is also active in pro wrestling. In fact, he is a staple in the New England scene. Known as "Johnny Fabulous," John Cena Sr. is as charismatic as you would expect the father of WWE's face to be. I caught up with him this past weekend at the New England Fan Fest, where we talked about his character, what he thinks his son's best match and rivalry was, where the WWE champ got his strong work ethic and when Cena Jr. will...

Archbishop Curley coach Barry Stitz had a long talk with his son, Ben, just prior to varsity tryouts this summer. Stitz had to explain that as the coach's son, Ben was inevitably going to be "under a microscope. " After coaching his son for Fewster F.C., a club team, the coach knew his son, a freshman, had the tactical ability to be a varsity player. The challenge would be the physical rigors of the Maryland Interscholastic Athletic Association A Conference, competing against players three or even four years older and carrying the same last name as the guy in charge.

Bessie Turner bought her house in a quiet Brooklyn Park neighborhood six years ago with a plan: She wanted to give her two sons a better place to live. She'd stay until January 2010, then pull out some of her equity and move to Myrtle Beach, S.C. Her sons would continue living there, paying less than if they were to rent a similar place, and she'd be there often. But that all changed two years ago Thursday. Her elder son, Rudolph Turner Jr., 25, was fatally shot in his bedroom.

My nine-year-old son is an early riser. He gets The Sun in the morning from the end of the driveway, dumps it on the floor and checks out the weather in the bottom right corner, under the fold. He was born on Opening Day, 2002. Since then, the Orioles are a combined 674-904, having finished a combined 262 games out of first place. We have not been above .500 later than Aug. 23 in his lifetime. Last year, we did not spend a single day above .500. This year, the Orioles pitching staff ranks 30th out of 30 MLB teams in earned run average, quality starts, earned runs, runs, hits, doubles, home runs, total bases and wins.
