This is truly absurd ("City won't pay lead damages" April 3.) What are the mothers and fathers of children affected with lead poisoning to do? How long will the children stricken with lead poisoning, going to survive? What about the medical costs? This aliment came from some landlord too lazy to fix the paint problem before renting these homes to residents. What other recourse do these people have? Anyone who understands HUD should know that it's all about the numbers!

There is no way to overestimate the fear felt by WMAR staff members recently when they experienced what could have seemed to be a terrorist attack ( "Man is held after standoff at WMAR," May 14). News outlets cover trauma all the time, and it can never be far from their minds. The live broadcast of the aftermath, extending well into the evening prime-time news hour, gave a vivid illustration of the impact of trauma even on those who may feel they are ready for it. Long after it seemed certain that no one was injured and that the assailant was likely unarmed, a clearly upset newsman was, at times breathlessly, leading viewers around the damaged building.

An emotionally disturbed man drives a landscaping truck into the lobby of Baltimore TV station WMAR around noon and then spends the afternoon inside the building watching other TV outlets covering his five-hour standoff with police. Sounds like a media story to me. It sounds as if it could be the story of someone with a troubled mind literally trying to break his way into the bright, shiny world of television - and accomplishing it, for a few hours at least, through his act of violence.

The port of Baltimore's continuing labor dispute, which boiled over in a three-day dockworkers strike in October before a three-month "cooling-off" period, now simmers with uncertainty. Labor peace in the port seems precarious. A contract covering the handling of vehicles and other local matters has expired, and workers voted down a new contract. The union says it won't strike and management says it won't lock out the dockworkers. The only certainty is that the port has lost work, and some of it might never return, port officials said.

Shippers already have begun diverting cargo from the port of Baltimore because of uncertainty about the ongoing labor contract standoff with the largest dockworkers union. The port is losing shipments despite assurances from labor and management officials that there won't be another strike or a lockout when a 90-day cooling-off period expires Friday. But there was no sign of a deal late Thursday, with labor representatives pushing for negotiations to continue and management saying their final offer is already on the table.

A woman who had defied an Anne Arundel County nudist club's bid to bar her from its grounds in Davidsonville has complied with a court order to move out of her leased cabin, putting an end to what she called the "nude feud. " Catherine Holmes lost her legal fight against the Maryland Health Society Inc., and was evicted from a cabin by a stream in the woods that she'd been leasing from the club since 2010. "I have to move on, I have to get on with my life. … So it's over," said Holmes, 54, who said she moved out Saturday as two county police officers looked on.

A man put what turned out to be a pellet gun to his head Thursday outside the U.S. courthouse in downtown Baltimore, triggering a response that closed streets and emptied offices before he surrendered without incident. At 10:15 a.m., the U.S. marshals said, the man sat on a bench in the 100 block of W. Lombard St. and put what appeared to be a black semi-automatic handgun to his head. The man told marshals that he wouldn't lower the weapon until he was allowed to speak to the FBI. In response, Baltimore police, marshals and Federal Protective Service officers quickly blocked off streets with crime scene tape, police cars and Department of Homeland Security SUVs.

Well, so much for the return of reason to the Congressional budget debate. Even before the ink was dry on the bipartisan agreement that is supposed to stabilize the budget debate for the next two years - and before the Senate has even voted on the darn thing - Rep. Paul Ryan was on national television this past weekend speculating on what concessions he expects to extract for raising the debt ceiling. "We don't want nothing out of this debt limit," the House budget chairman warned on Fox News.
