How many of my tax dollars went to the FBI to set up this and other ridiculous sting operations ( "Arrest made in plot to blow up area military recruiting center," Dec. 9)? How much will be wasted on court costs and incarceration? Wouldn't it have been wiser to have agents pose as reasonable, mainstream Muslims and talk the poor, misguided guy out of being a radical? Or better yet, connect him with any of the fine mainstream Islamic organizations in the area who could easily bring him into the fold and teach him that such acts are not acceptable?

Judging by the spicy, sophisticated production of David Ives' “Venus in Fur," it's going to be an interesting year for the Columbia-based professional company Rep Stage, now in its first full season planned by recently appointed co-producing artistic directors Suzanne Beal and Joseph W. Ritsch. "Venus in Fur," a hit on Broadway in 2011, manages a neat little trick of turning tables and shifting centers of gravity as it confronts issues of desire, passion, sexuality and domination.

Car magnets promoting phony businesses, bogus invitations to pick up tax refund checks and fake gift boxes for Valentine's Day - all props employed in imaginative stings executed by the Anne Arundel County Sheriff's Department - are about to become history. On Friday morning, representatives from the National Law Enforcement Museum are scheduled to take the items they want for the collection now under development in Washington. "We are looking for things that tell a story," said Laurie A. Baty, senior director of museum programs.

Baltimore FBI agents and local law enforcement officers said they rescued two Maryland girls who were being prostituted and arrested five suspects they said were sexually exploiting children. The recovery of the two girls, both 16, came as part of a nationwide sting known as Operation Cross Country VIII, which targeted child sex trafficking. One of the rescued girls was from Baltimore County, the other from Montgomery County. Four of the alleged pimps arrested came from Prince George's County and one from Baltimore County, the FBI said.

FEDERAL STING operations targeting undocumented immigrant workers are being increasingly employed by the U.S. Department of Homeland Security. Though they do result in arrests of illegal immigrants, the operations raise a troubling question: Is it fair for the government to go after illegal employees more aggressively than it does the employers who knowingly hire them and profit from their cheap labor? Federal officials say it is, especially when the workers are hired by outside contractors and employed at military bases, nuclear power plants, chemical refineries and other potential terrorist targets.

PBS stays on a Friday-night arts-programming roll with a "Great Performances" concert staging of Sting's upcoming musical "The Last Ship. " The musical, which opens in October on Broadway, is set in the working-class, shipyard world of Sting's childhood in Newcastle, England. I wasn't that excited when I started the DVD screener, but about 15 minutes in, I was totally gone. The music and the stories Sting tells between songs are superb. Check out this podcast preview I did of "Sting: The Last Ship" for WYPR-FM.

Last week I felt stinging on my arm while I was pruning and realized I brushed against a caterpillar. It reminded me of a weird Scottie dog, brown with fuzzy "ears" at both ends, green in the middle with one neat brown spot. The sting hurt like the dickens, until I put the old baking soda-water home remedy on it. What was that caterpillar? The saddleback caterpillar is the larval form of a common East Coast moth. Eggs are laid in clutches, and initially caterpillars can be gregarious, feeding in groups.

The SUV bore the slogan of Keystone Candigrams: "Just One Bite & You're Hooked." The top of the candy box featured a romantic design, and the smiling delivery woman, a plaid cap covering her braided hair, needed the recipient's signature for the chocolates. But this Sunday delivery, on Valentine's Day, was anything but sweet. The deliverer was Anne Arundel County Sheriff's Lt. Jennifer Gilbert-Duran, who was serving a warrant. The recipient was Timothy Lawn, 23, handcuffed and led away from his Glen Burnie home for failing to appear in court on traffic charges.

The Ravens were all smiles after their three-day minicamp last week, which could be an indication of how much confidence they have that they are on the verge of a big turnaround season or just how happy everyone is to get in a little beach time over the next month. It has been a rocky offseason, but the new offense seems to be coming along nicely and most of the off-the-field unpleasantness of the past few months is behind, so coach John Harbaugh has plenty of reason to be upbeat with about four weeks to go before his team opens training camp.

A federal appeals judge recently took aim at the U.S. Bureau of Alcohol, Tobacco, Firearms and Explosives' use of fictitious drug robbery schemes to secure lengthy prison sentences for would-be rip off crews, strongly criticizing the practice in a written opinion. The so-called reverse stings follow a pattern: An informant or undercover agent poses as a disgruntled courier and invites a group of people to rob his employer of a half-million dollars or so worth of drugs. But Judge Stephen Reinhardt wrote that such tactics raise important issues about wealth inequality in the United States and whom authorities decide to pursue.

When asked to reminisce about Goucher's 6-5 loss to the Merchant Marine Academy in the semifinals of the Landmark Conference tournament on May 1 - an outcome that prevented the top-seeded Gophers from capturing their third tournament crown in four years - coach Brian Kelly quipped, “Do we have to?” It's encouraging to see that Kelly's sense of humor hasn't been affected by that setback, but the second-year coach said the loss resonated throughout the program at the time. “We were 6-0 in our conference and felt pretty good about where we were heading into the tournament,” he said.

The 1970s corruption investigation known as Abscam, celebrated in "American Hustle," one of the holiday season's hottest movies, had its roots in Baltimore. It was in Charm City that the FBI tested the sting-style operation that marked Abscam as a particularly theatrical and effective form of undercover investigation. Baltimore FBI agents later trained those who carried out the Abscam sting. Abscam famously featured FBI agents posing as Arab sheiks, along with an accomplished con artist (played by Christian Bale in "American Hustle")

Take out your slutty nurse and Pocahontas outfits ladies and gents, Halloween is upon us yet again. I'm sorry for making that line kind of rhyme, but it's hard not to harmonize about the best holiday of the year. Later this week, we'll be putting up a round-up of Halloween parties around Baltimore. If you're throwing something, let me know and soon. Elsewhere this week: shows by Odd Future, Jacuzzi Boys, Ani DiFranco, and Sting. On Monday , Odd Future gets more press, they probably have more Tumblr followers, and generally make a much louder ruckus than Jacuzzi Boys , but the fresh from CMJ Miami trio will be the more lighthearted show.

A pitcher who could have possibly replaced Jim Johnson as the Orioles' closer came off the board on Thursday when the Boston Red Sox signed former St. Louis Cardinals reliever Edward Mujica to a two-year, $9.5-million deal. The signing is like a punch to the gut for two reasons. First, Mujica appeared to be one of the best value options on the free-agency market. He was projected to cost in the $4-6 million range annually, and he signed a deal toward the lower half of that estimate.
