July 5, 1994
Twenty-five years ago, the gay rights movement was born in a wild, late-night melee between police and a group of patrons at the Stonewall, a seedy gay bar in New York City's Greenwich Village. The police had come to the Stonewall that night prepared to do what they had done many times previously: roust the clientele, intimidate, harass and humiliate those present and pack anyone who looked the least bit suspicious or disreputable off to jail in the waiting paddy wagons.To this day, no one knows why that particular July night turned out so differently; why instead of meekly playing out what by then had become a well-rehearsed script of cringing resignation followed by abject submission, the Stonewall's customers turned on their tormentors with a fury.

When the Ravens' pass rushers went after Cincinnati Bengals quarterback Andy Dalton on Sunday, they got stonewalled by his blockers. The Ravens finished with zero sacks and zero quarterback hits in the 23-16 defeat, as Dalton had plenty of time to operate. The Ravens play the Pittsburgh Steelers tonight at M&T Bank Stadium and will need to generate pressure against star quarterback Ben Roethlisberger. "Yeah, we got to do a better job of trying to get to him," said outside linebacker Elvis Dumervil,  who had one tackle in the opener.

The only real accountability for the Benghazi scandal will have to come in 2016. Reading through the competing partisan reports and listening to the congressional testimony of various officials last week, it seemed fair to say that no actual crimes were committed (though you never know what you don't know). There were, in at least a figurative sense, criminal lapses in judgment by senior officials. Many of those lapses are recounted in the Accountability Review Board report. It found "systemic failures and leadership and management deficiencies at senior levels within two bureaus of the State Department" that "resulted in a special mission security posture that was inadequate for Benghazi and grossly inadequate to deal with the attack that took place.

"Stonewall," which opens today at the Charles, turns out not to be a documentary about the key event in gay history, a riot that broke out in the late summer of 1969 when New York vice cops pulled one of their customary nocturnal raids on a Greenwich Village drag bar, the Stonewall Inn.Rather, it's a fictionalization of that event, following the tangled lives of several of the men who took part in the uprising, using the violence of the moment as a contrast to the emotional lives of the individuals.

THROUGH the month of June, in most major cities around the nation, hundreds of thousands of lesbians and gay men are commemorating 25 years of resistance and struggle against those who wish to deny us equal rights. The culminating event, a demonstration surrounding the United Nations building in New York on June 26, will remind those in power around the world that basic freedoms and dignity are still denied to gay men and lesbians.However, change has indeed occurred since patrons of the Stonewall Inn took to the streets of Sheridan Square in New York City around 1 a.m. on June 28, 1969, to protest a seemingly routine police raid of yet another gay bar. That night, those inside and outside the bar resisted; for several days afterward, they protested their treatment and began to organize to change a society that had made their very lives illegal.

NEW YORK -- Twenty-five years ago this month, Anthony Coron went to a gay bar in Greenwich Village to celebrate having come to terms with his sexuality. By the end of the evening, however, the 27-year-old Wall Street employee was standing in the street throwing objects at the police -- and participating in what would later be called the birth of the gay rights movement.It was June 28, 1969, when police raided the Stonewall Inn, a dingy bar and dance floor. Such raids were routine then. But this night was different: The men and women at Stonewall fought back.

Adamp, gray chill hangs in the air, the Stonewall sign is broken and sagging and a For Sale sign flaps against the Formstone building at 1212 S. Charles St. as state Sen. George W. Della Jr. pushes the door open and steps into a political twilight zone. The Stonewall Democratic Club - a last survivor from Baltimore's rich tradition of neighborhood political clubs - is holding an open house from 11 a.m. to 1 p.m. today for people interested in buying the clubhouse that has been its headquarters for more than 75 years.

Forty years ago this weekend, New York City police carried out another routine raid on a gay bar in Greenwich Village, even though the Mafia owners had dutifully paid the customary $2,000-a-week bribe to the local precinct. But something went wrong that night at the Stonewall Inn. Around 1 a.m. June 28, as some patrons were ushered out to the paddy wagon, others who had been inside, or just passing by, began to taunt the police. Coins were flung at the cops, a rude reference to the payoffs everyone knew about.

There's a long back-story to Maryland's official recognition of the Piscataway as a distinct tribe of Native American people, and it's not pretty. Last week's announcement of the long-sought declaration in Annapolis marked an end to both the state's stubborn refusal to recognize any native tribe - largely to stop its members from opening a casino here - and to a dispute between Piscataway groups that got so bitter, they even bickered over bones. In the 1990s, Maryland and other states went through the process of removing native bones from museums and offering them for reburial.

The 18-year-old woman charged in an attack on a transgender woman at a Rosedale McDonald's, which was captured on video that went viral on the Internet, will face an additional hate crime charge after being indicted Monday by a Baltimore County grand jury. Activists for the gay, lesbian and transgender community had expressed concern that hate crime charges weren't initially filed by police last month, after Chrissy Lee Polis said she was assaulted in an apparent dispute over her using a woman's restroom.

In assembling a case against a group accused of beating a passenger aboard a city bus, police had to sort through conflicting statements from middle school students who appeared streetwise beyond their years. In interrogation rooms, detectives faced off against recalcitrant children as young as 14 who remained defiant even as interrogators threatened them with adult charges and warned that their friends might be giving them up in a room next door. One 14-year-old boy repeatedly told a Maryland Transit Administration Police sergeant that he saw the fight on the No. 27 bus in Hampden but couldn't name the people involved.

Walls intended to hold earth in place are tricky constructions requiring careful design, but they are much simpler to build these days than in the past.Retaining walls are used to beautify landscapes as well as prevent soil erosion, and they help make sloping or hilly land usable.Helping to simplify construction of the walls are modular concrete-block systems that require no mortar and generally have built-in alignment systems.Mortarless blocks are available in a variety of sizes and designs and colors, and can produce retaining walls of symmetry and beauty.
