I used to think of myself as a purist about language but have come to see that as dangerous.  Look at the Purity People around and decide whether you wanted to be numbered among that lot. In the Republican Party, the tea party crowd is on the alert for incipient deviationism, and people whom we have always thought of as conservative (people like Sen.

The headline says it all - "Baltimore police consider using nonlethal tranquilizers in animal cases" (June 20). Duh! You think? Why hasn't a plan been in place to use tranquilizers since a steer has escaped in the city before and dogs have always gotten loose? How can a city not have a plan? I was horrified that the police felt their only option was to kill that steer who after escaping death at a slaughterhouse and running for his life, was shot and killed. Other cities like Queens, N.Y. and Cincinnati, Ohio have been able to get these brave souls that do not want to die to an animal sanctuary.

Sean Sneeton was picking up a colleague for work Friday morning when he turned around to walk back to his car and saw the escaped steer trotting down Druid Hill Avenue toward him. He tried to take a picture, and when the animal started toward him, he got back in his car and called 911. Sneeton was among nearly a dozen witnesses who struggled to explain the odd situation to police dispatchers in tapes of the calls released to the media Thursday night....

A 780-pound steer headed for slaughter in West Baltimore seized a chance at freedom Friday, leaping a barbed-wire fence and taking a brisk two-mile walk along North Avenue that ended when the animal was gunned down by police in Mid-Town Belvedere. The steer was first spotted about 10:15 a.m. after escaping from the George G. Ruppersberger & Sons Inc. slaughterhouse in the 2600 block of Pennsylvania Ave., according to police. It was shot less than an hour later. Scores of people took pictures of the felled animal at North Charles and Preston Street, and the incident became fodder for social media, which lit up with pictures, Internet memes ("Cow Ripken")

Last in a series of profiles of gubernatorial candidates. As Anthony G. Brown runs for governor, he often appears to be walking a political tightrope. If the lieutenant governor tips too far in the direction of independence, he risks looking disloyal to Gov. Martin O'Malley, whose firm support has given him a leg up in the Democratic primary race. If he shows too much deference to O'Malley, he risks looking more like a sidekick than a leader in his own right. So far, if the polls are correct, Brown hasn't tumbled.

COLLEGE PARK — Brenda Frese will be the first to tell you she sometimes trampled through life, so intent on the goals ahead that she didn't necessarily worry about the bruised feelings left in her wake. If she wanted something, she took it, a brash style she used to transform the Maryland women's basketball program from losers to national champs in a mere four years. She was 35 then and couldn't have imagined she would need eight years to steer the Terps back to the Final Four.

If you are among America's 68 million people who can't, won't or just don't do business with private banks, the post office wants you. Recognizing a need for affordable banking services among the nation's lower-income consumers, the U.S. Postal Service also sees a way to bolster its own bottom line by offering financial services. We'll get back to the post office in a minute. But first, who are these consumers who require a new model of financial services? The first, the so-called unbanked, are those who prefer to deal in cash and who don't use traditional, regulated banks for a myriad of reasons, including an inability or unwillingness to pay high fees or a poor credit history that precludes access to loans.

Do you recall a time in America when the income of a single schoolteacher or baker or salesman or mechanic was enough to buy a home, have two cars and raise a family? I remember. My father (who just celebrated his 100th birthday) earned enough for the rest of us to live comfortably. We weren't rich but never felt poor, and our standard of living rose steadily through the 1950s and 1960s. That used to be the norm. For three decades after World War II, America created the largest middle class the world had ever seen.

BOVINOCIDE. That's what the folks at PETA, the People for the Ethical Treatment of Animals, would have you believe Officer Ian Cameron of the Baltimore Police Department committed April 18. You may have heard the story by now. It ran on WJZ earlier this week and in Dan Rodricks' column yesterday. About 9:30 a.m. on the day in question, a steer escaped from a slaughterhouse on Pennsylvania Avenue in West Baltimore. Perspicacious critter must have known what was afoot. He roamed the nearby area until he ran into a dead end in an alley behind the 1900 block of Herbert St. Officers from the police emergency unit and a SWAT team were dispatched to the scene.
