We will be a nation perpetually at half-mast until we defend our children's' rights allowing them to grow up safely and reach their potential as youths and adult citizens ("Obama pushes on guns," Dec. 20). What was taken from us on Friday, Dec. 14 in Newtown, Conn. follows nationwide atrocities of gun violence, too common here in this city of Baltimore. It is unfathomable, heart-wrenching, beyond criminal. How can we as a nation have come to this tragic reality? We know. We have let greed and the promise of the dollar dictate our decisions.

Every Wednesday, I'll serve up five stats you should know heading into that week's Ravens game. This week's stats, pertaining to Sunday's game against the Tampa Bay Buccaneers, focus on what the Ravens do well and what the Buccaneers don't - which is kind of a lot. 30 - The Buccaneers have the ignominy of ranking 30th in the league in total offense and total defense. The latter is dragged down by the Thursday night dismantling at the hands of the Atlanta Falcons a few weeks ago, but this is a team that's really struggling on both sides of the ball.

During the campaign to get President Obama elected, we were all excited and moved by the hope he inspired us to feel when he talked about change. He told us then that he could not do it alone and that he would be calling on us to help him to fight the good fight. It is time to demand that our representatives on both sides of the aisle come together to solve a huge problem that has been troubling America for 100 years -- our health care system. It is time to stand up to the special interests who profit from the broken system, and it is time to deliver a brighter, smarter future for generations to come.

In response to the article "Md. fights through haze over medical marijuana" (Jan. 31), I say good luck, Maryland. It took New Jersey five years to pass its medical marijuana bill into law. In the end, it was the patients and their testimony that finally swayed legislators in New Jersey to support medical marijuana. That's what it will take in Maryland, too. Patients stood up and spoke out about how marijuana helps them with their afflictions. These were individual acts of courage and selflessness.

Gov. Martin O'Malley has shown the courage to put his anti-gun convictions ahead of his political aspirations ("Senate OKs bill to curb firearms," March 1). But he surely he must understand that this legislation, for which he is now responsible, will make him a toxic candidate for any future political office. James B. Astrachan, Baltimore

Business has been booming at Springfield Farm, with rising demand for locally grown food helping to double the sales of meat, eggs, dairy and produce, and straining the confines of David Smith's basement retail stand in the northern Baltimore County community of Sparks. Smith, 68, a retired Army lieutenant colonel, has a solution: an expansion that would add a three-level, 6,000-square-foot barn for storage, an office, an egg-washing machine and service for drive-up customers. But after proposing the $250,000 project four years ago, he still doesn't have zoning approval.

Just one more turn . . . it's right there, on the corner. . . . You can already smell the basil and taste that sweet corn. . . . There's the stand. Quick, pull over, hop out, grab some corn, a head of lettuce, the strawberries look good -- hmm, maybe some bananas for breakfast? Are these tomatoes vine-ripened? Have you got any Romas?Where else could you be but the local roadside produce emporium, the place to stop on a busy day to grab some fresh veggies for dinner. No carts to maneuver, no checkout lines, just a quick --, then back to the car and you're on your way.Have you got a favorite stand where you often grab a few items for the family dinner table?

It seems like a very long time ago that the Orioles announced the deal to acquire Kevin Millwood from the Texas Rangers and conducted a conference call to introduce the veteran right-hander to the local media, but one thing about that evening still stands out. Millwood didn't sound too thrilled to be coming to Baltimore. It became obvious when he got to spring training that he's just a very low-key guy, so maybe we all just assumed too much about his lack of enthusiasm during that call and ensuing interviews, or maybe he saw all this coming.

When Republican Larry Hogan and Democrat Anthony G. Brown discuss the business climate in Maryland, it seems as if the gubernatorial rivals are talking about two different states. Hogan's Maryland is a terrible place to do business, a state where companies and residents are streaming for the borders to escape oppressive taxation and capricious regulations. His remedy: tax and spending cuts coupled with business-friendly appointments to regulatory agencies. Brown's Maryland is the state with the highest household median income and a blue-chip AAA bond rating, where top-quality educational resources and strategic investments fuel the nation's No. 1 entrepreneurial culture.

Some call the Flag Court the party deck, and the general-admission patio above right field fit the description as delirious fans traded high-fives, started chants, drained beverages and hollered at Tigers players 90 minutes before game time. But beneath the levity was a quiet battle for terrain. Brian Mills of Hagerstown, in his best Oriole-orange mohawk, sunglasses, beads and dyed beard, arrived three hours before the gates opened but still found himself in the second row. He stood pretty much in the same spot near the right-field foul pole two years ago as the Orioles faced the Yankees in a playoff game, but that time he'd made his way to the fence.

BLOOMINGTON, IND. -- Excluding a 43-yard-run late in the third quarter, Maryland limited Indiana's standout running back, Tevin Coleman , to 79 yards on 21 carries. Senior inside linebacker Cole Farrand was a big reason why. Farrand saw limited action for the Terps vs. Syracuse last week, when the Orange rushed for 370 yards while averaging more than seven yards a carry. But Farrand got a full workload Saturday and made plays all over the field throughout the game.

In the rare moments when he speaks candidly about running for president, Gov. Martin O'Malley uses phrases such as "fundamentally newer" and "new way of leadership" to describe his approach - language intended to highlight the data-driven management style for which he is widely recognized. But it isn't hard to read another, more subtle message between the lines: The young, guitar-slinging governor represents a more youthful crop of Democrats, while the presumed front-runner for the nomination in 2016, Hillary Clinton, might struggle to do so. As he winds down his final months in Annapolis and crisscrosses the country in anticipation of a full-scale national campaign, O'Malley has delicately tried to draw contrasts with the former first lady, senator and secretary of state without appearing confrontational - or even using her name.

Every Wednesday, I'll serve up five stats you should know heading into that week's Ravens game. This week's stats, pertaining to Sunday's game against Carolina, will likely get lost in the shuffle, and by shuffle I mean incessant discussion of Steve Smith. 14 --  Panthers tight end Greg Olson averages 14 yards per reception (16 catches for 224 yards with a pair of touchdowns) through three games, and he could give the Ravens pass defense big problems. Before he dislocated his elbow, Cincinnati Bengals tight end Tyler Eiffert found space underneath, and Steelers tight end Heath Miller exploited the inside zone a few times as well in Week 2. Olson is the most reliable pass catcher remaining in Carolina, and a healthy Olson could victimize the Ravens in the middle of the defense.

A recent exchange within your opinion pages debated the benefit of over-the-counter access to oral contraceptives, with a letter to the editor ( "Sun wrong on OTC birth control," Sept. 16) citing the American Congress of Obstetricians and Gynecologists as being supportive of recent proposals from Congressional candidates across the country. But there's a disclaimer to our support: while ACOG does believe that many oral contraceptives are safe and effective for over-the-counter use, and we would welcome this new level of access for some women, we strongly believe that this is not enough.

Ravens coach John Harbaugh praised the late-game adjustments on defense in Sunday's 23-21 win over Cleveland that kept the Browns off the scoreboard in the final quarter and gave the offense the chance to complete its comeback. "That's what won the game, the resolve of our guys to finish the game - probably spearheaded by our defense in terms of the three-and-outs," Harbaugh said. "I think we had three out of four three-and-outs at the end, and two in a row in the fourth quarter.
