Letter to The Aegis | March 14, 2013
Editor: Every day the media reports more crime, more violent crime, all kinds of pointless crimes. I can think of at least three excellent deterrents to crime – any crime: • The moral/religious compass, based on the Judeo-Christian principles found in America's foundation that was once taught by parents, teachers and clerics.  • The fear of punishment after arrest, trial and conviction – particularly execution.    ...

Despite another seemingly good jobs report, President Barack Obama's approval rating is lower than a snake's belly, and Republicans could retake the Senate in November. Missteps in the Ukraine, Iraq and elsewhere weigh on voters' minds, but the economy - especially the jobs picture - is not as healthy as Mr. Obama claims. The president has managed to increase employment 5.5 million - or about 4 percent. But measured against other presidents facing similar challenges, his performance is hardly stellar.

On Wednesday, Ravens quarterback Joe Flacco raised a few eyebrows when he admitted the team's hurry-up offense probably would go a bit faster if he were calling his own plays instead of looking to the sidelines and waiting for offensive coordinator Cam Cameron to send in the play. One of the Ravens most glaring weaknesses in their two losses this season has been their inability to move the ball quickly when they got down two scores and were trying to rally. Cameron was asked for his take on Flacco's comments today during his weekly session with reporters, and he answered in a way that seemed to imply he'd like Flacco to reach that point in his evolution as well.

WASHINGTON -- Rep. Elijah E. Cummings appeared to call Wednesday for U.S. Secret Service Director Julia Pierson to step down over a series of recent security breaches at the White House -- becoming the first member of Congress to do so -- but then later softened his stance on the matter. The Baltimore lawmaker, the top Democrat on the House Oversight and Government Reform Committee, used several national media appearances Wednesday to say he did not believe Pierson's testimony before his committee on Tuesday conveyed a sense of urgency in addressing the problems.

In an hourlong presentation before the school board and the county commissioners, KPMG presented numerous suggestions to improve the organizational structure, efficiency and technology of the system. The consultants also noted particular progress in the embattled school construction department, whose problems led to the audit.

"Living in Style Without Losing Your Mind," by Marco Pasanella (Simon & Schuster, 200 pages, $30) The world is awash with tastelessness and with drearily predictable guides to home-furnishing trendiness or trade-mark stylishness. Pasanella's elegant, intelligent book is a joyfully liberating exception. A designer whose eye is as clean as his suggestions are practical, he lives in New York, teaches at Parsons and makes a lot of sense in approaching the daunting job of choosing your surroundings.

I went on YouTube to watch a gruesome video of a wild animal called a fisher, or fisher cat, attacking a silver fox - someone told me it would be educational, if you must know why - but I had to watch Anthony Brown tear into Larry Hogan first. It was a 30-second political ad that opened with a question: "Who is Larry Hogan?" and went on to say Hogan, the Republican candidate for governor in November's general election, opposes a woman's right to choose an abortion, even in the case of rape or incest.

Last week, Jim Perdue spoke at a Maryland Chamber of Commerce event to complain about the regulatory environment in the state where his company roosts. "The problem is, we have no seat at the table in Maryland," the Perdue Farms chairman said, according to the Baltimore Business Journal. "Even if we have an onerous thing that happens in Virginia or Delaware, we can sit at the table and at least express our opinion. " Wow. Just wow. No doubt there are a lot of corporate CEOs out there who are nodding their heads in agreement at Mr. Perdue's chirping.

A winter forecast map that is going viral and suggests above-normal snowfall for most of the country -- and "well above-normal" snow for the mid-Atlantic and New England -- comes from a satire website. The story has been shared widely across social media, carrying the headline "Meteorologists Predict Record-Shattering Snowfall Coming Soon. " The accompanying map forecasts an unusually snowy winter for about two-thirds of the country, and a corridor of even heavier snow from Virginia to Maine.

Pole dancing got a toehold on Ocean City's boardwalk over the weekend, and neither city officials nor area merchants seem too thrilled. Saturday night, an unidentified woman wearing a bikini set up a pole on the boardwalk and danced for onlookers. Police were powerless to do anything - a federal court recently ruled that street performers have a right to perform in public places like the boardwalk, apparently even if what they do is decidedly adult-oriented. And though she doesn't seem to have been back since, the dancer clearly made an impression.

The NCAA rules committee's decision on Thursday not to recommend a shot clock for the 2015 season drew a mixed reaction from a pair of area Division I men's lacrosse coaches. A shot clock had been a heavily debated topic as players, coaches and fans bemoaned the slower pace of play associated with a game that has been called "the fastest sport on two feet. " But the committee, which met Tuesday through Thursday in Indianapolis, instead suggested by next spring the installation of a visible shot clock for the 30-second warning issued when officials rule that an offense is stalling and not making a concerted effort to attack the net. "I'm surprised because I did think there had been enough conversation and a lot of proponents for the shot clock," Johns Hopkins coach Dave Pietramala said.

If all went as planned, Gov. Martin O'Malley spent this past weekend in Iowa, his second trip to the state in a month, which puts him about two visits ahead of former Secretary of State Hillary Clinton this year. His purpose is hardly a secret as he's considered a likely Democratic candidate, albeit a relatively unknown one, for a 2016 presidential run. Conventional wisdom is that candidates in Iowa say nice things about agriculture. One of the big controversies involving this year's race for a U.S. Senate seat from the Hawkeye state, for instance, was whether the Democratic candidate, Rep. Bruce Braley, threatened a lawsuit when some of his neighbor's organically-raised chickens wandered into his yard.

In the world of small, for-profit businesses, saving your boss a few thousand bucks in postage could very well result in a tidy little bonus in your next paycheck. In larger corporations, money-saving ideas are regularly rewarded with ample bonuses. These incentives encourage employees to take some responsibility for producing a healthy bottom line.So why not offer financial incentives to nonprofit employees? Heresy, you say? Unthinkable in the nonprofit world?"It just wouldn't work" is the phrase I most often hear when I suggest an incentive system, including noncash incentives such extra vacation days for nonprofit employees.

If it were up to some budget-conscious Marylanders, state employees wouldn't get paid on their birthdays, and they would work in offices with thermostats set as high as 80 degrees in the summer. And while the citizens of the Free State are at it, they would raise money for state coffers by taxing commuters and collecting additional gun permit fees by easing restrictions on who can legally carry handguns. Gov. Martin O'Malley solicited ideas from the citizenry as he puzzles over how to slash another $470 million from a state budget that has already been whacked several times in recent years.

Woodbridge (Va.) coach Karibi Dede played at Auburn with five cornerbacks that went on to be selected in the NFL draft. He also later served as a graduate assistant on Auburn's coaching staff. He has seen firsthand what it takes to be a successful corner at the college level. And to Dede, new Maryland commit Mike Majette has the tools to be productive. “Mike has the tools to progress at the collegiate level and the ability to one day play on Sunday,” Dede said during a telephone interview.

Pardon us if we are not completely reassured by officials' insistence that glitches recently discovered in the Connecticut Affordable Care Act health insurance exchange that Maryland is in the process of adapting will be fixed well before the site goes live here in November. To learn that a coding error there caused inaccurate bills, unpaid subsidies, mistaken Medicaid enrollments or outright dropped coverage for more than 5,000 people is not encouraging - particularly since officials there initially misdiagnosed the problem as an isolated incident before backtracking this month to acknowledge a problem with their software.
