Thank you for having the courage to question the feminist default by running the commentary which questions the math for rape stats not adding up ( "Do the math: rape stats don't add up," Sept. 26). This is the sort of courage that has been sorely lacking in the media over the last 50 years and has led us into such a one-sided Mobius strip mentality when it comes to the issues of men and women. Please do keep questioning. This is a vital role for the media to play and it has been missing in action for too many years.

The decades-long decline in lead-poisoned children in Maryland has essentially stalled, but state officials said Thursday they are taking steps in the coming months to address gaps in the marathon effort to eliminate the environmental health threat. Statewide, 2,622 youngsters up to age 6 were found to have harmful levels of lead in their blood last year, according to an annual report just released by the Maryland Department of the Environment. That's down 4 percent from 2012, though the number of children with seriously elevated lead levels grew slightly, from 364 to 371. Exposure to even minute amounts of lead can harm still-developing brains and nervous systems of young children, leading to learning and behavioral problems.

I 'm getting tired of working for the man. Not The Baltimore Sun. I mean my job with Capital One, the credit-card company. And all the work I do for Verizon and M&T Bank. And Southwest Airlines. Verizon signed me up as a broadband network technician. When the router or modem goes out on my Internet service (rare, it's true), the guy who fixes it is me. I'm a data-entry clerk for Capital One. They make me key in my card number and other stuff when I call so they don't have to. I check myself in for Southwest flights and serve as my own teller at M&T's money dispenser.

During a June meeting of leaders from Baltimore's law enforcement and judicial circles, city police Commissioner Anthony W. Batts gave a report on crime that included a surprising statistic. Half of all cars stolen in Baltimore had their keys left in the ignition, he said. The comments were made as he informed officials that car thefts had increased 4 percent compared with the same period last year. This month, he repeated the same "50 percent" estimate to the Criminal Justice Coordinating Council, which includes local judges, prison officials, federal and state prosecutors.

Every year on Maryland's college campuses, dozens of sexual assaults are reported to the authorities, duly logged, and reported to the public in an annual roundup. That such statistics are publicly accessible - they can be found at http://www.ope.ed.gov/security - is the result of a federal law named for Jeanne Clery, a 19-year-old Lehigh University freshman who was raped and murdered in her dorm in 1986. The data include murders, burglaries, robberies, aggravated assaults and other serious felonies.

The Bureau of Labor Statistics' (BLS) employment projections from 2012 through 2022 confirm what Americans already know: The nation is in a structural unemployment crisis, and the outlook is bleak. The U.S. job market has changed radically. Jobs are much harder to get, and better paying jobs require higher education or more advanced technical training. In 2012, workers with a post-secondary education or higher earned a median income of $57,770 - more than twice the $27,670 earned by those with only a high school diploma.

President Obama announced last week a new race-based initiative, My Brother's Keeper. According to the White House, the program will coordinate government agencies and private foundations to help young men and boys of color. "Of color" basically means blacks and Latinos. In fact, it's pretty obvious the program is aimed at young black men. This fact has invited some conservative criticism. The Weekly Standard's Terry Eastland notes that the program is likely unconstitutional.

The liberal media are not telling Americans the truth about the state of the country's economy. Over 70 percent of Americans believe the economy is still in bad shape, despite the stock market's comeback. While the U.S. Department of Labor reports that the official government unemployment rate is around 7 percent, the real unemployment rate is well into double digits. The country has a record number of disability cases that are not being counted, as well as millions of people who have stopped looking for work and are not counted as unemployed.

Southwest Airlines, BWI Marshall's largest carrier, saw a larger-than-usual percentage of flights delayed in recent months — which it blamed on weather conditions along the East Coast. Those federal aviation statistics also showed Southwest had some of the worst on-time rates in America, and BWI ranked below many other major airports for on-time performance. But the data may not be telling the whole story. In a new report, the office of the inspector general at the Department of Transportation found that the agency's flight data "present the public with an incomplete picture of the number of delays that actually occur.
