WASHINGTON -- The release of the Kevin Costner film "Thirteen Days" will accurately enlighten a new generation about how horrifyingly close the world came to annihilation in October 1962. While the film brilliantly captures both the drama of the moment and the canniness of the brothers Kennedy to forge a plan that succeeded in pulling us back from the brink, the producers' zeal in amplifying John and Robert Kennedy's heroism obscures the vital truths of mid-century's Cold War hysteria.

THIRTEEN, A SAVAGE film about a middle-school girl gone horribly, horribly bad, has everyone buzzing. Movieland is buzzing about first-time director Catherine Hardwicke, who took top honors at the Sundance Film Festival of independent films. About 15-year-old Nikki Reed, who co-wrote the screenplay based on her own life and who portrays the seductive but toxic Evie. And about young Evan Rachel Wood, who plays the part of Tracy, whose semi-normal life is hijacked way out of bounds by Evie.

After graduating five seniors and introducing 13 freshmen to the rigors of Division I men's soccer, Loyola would not have been faulted for experiencing a few growing pains in 2013. Instead, the team has sprinted to a 5-0-1 start and is enjoying its best opening since 2008, while also earning votes in the latest National Soccer Coaches Association of America poll and sitting just outside the top 25. Acknowledging that winning has boosted the Greyhounds' morale, coach Mark Mettrick pointed out that the team has benefited from sizable contributions from first-year players such as midfielder David Warburton, back Ryan Tuck and midfielder Laurin Vogel -- each of whom have started six games.

It is good news that the Maryland Court of Appeals used common sense regarding the unfair trials that occurred as a result of the faulty instructions given jurors prior to 1980 ("13 Killers go free after court decision," July 11, 2013). In most European countries the corrections system recognizes that a person incarcerated for a crime is not the same person 20 years later. In the cases described in the newspaper, all the defendants had served 32 to 45 years in prison. Is further retribution really necessary?

Thirteen inmates convicted of murder have been released from prison - and dozens more could be freed - after Maryland's highest court ruled that jurors had been given improper instructions in the decades-old cases. The Court of Appeals ruling effectively entitled as many as 200 prisoners convicted before 1980 of crimes including murder, attempted murder and rape to demand new trials. The difficulty of retrying the old cases has prosecutors throughout the state fighting to keep violent offenders behind bars.

A win this Saturday against No. 13 Johns Hopkins would strengthen No. 7 Loyola's bid for an at-large spot in next month's NCAA tournament. It would also do away with this pesky matter of a 13-game losing streak to the Blue Jays. The Greyhounds haven't won a contest in this series since 1999 - a slide that includes last year's 10-9 overtime loss en route to capturing the school's first Division I national championship in any sport. Ending that skid is a weighty motivation for the players.

About a dozen Baltimore Gas and Electric Co. customers, consumer advocates and a City Councilwoman faulted the utility Tuesday for lack of preparation before and poor communication after a derecho storm struck the region in June. At a Baltimore public hearing on the utility's storm response, a crowd repeated concerns that BGE officials didn't provide them with an estimated time their power would be restored. Others questioned why the utility hadn't cut back mature trees to prevent branches from knocking out power lines — to which BGE officials responded by pointing to recent efforts at more aggressive trimming.

Being in Baltimore apparently has its privileges for Loyola. Not only did the Greyhounds have to make just a 34-mile trip from their campus to Navy-Marine Corps Memorial Stadium in Annapolis for Saturday's NCAA tournament quarterfinal against Denver, but they also got a visit from Ravens linebacker Ray Lewis. In a video posted by the school, the 13-time Pro Bowler and two-time NFL Defensive Player of the Year spoke to the players before Wednesday's practice and encouraged them to play with passion and cooperation.

Riley William Davis, whose sunny personality and quick wit sustained him and his family through his four-year battle with leukemia, died Wednesday at Johns Hopkins Children's Center. He was 13. Diagnosed with cancer at 9, Riley's life was turned upside down by treatment — including two bone-marrow transplants and hip surgery — but was not defined by it. The Hunt Valley resident loved to draw, creating his own comic strips and sketching characters such as Spider-Man with such skill that adults thought he'd traced them, said his mother, Mary Healy Davis.

You have 13 days left to go to Obrykci's. Obrycki's, a bona fide Baltimore dining institution has always closed down sometime around the first week of November, when the crab supply ran out. But when the Pratt Street doors shut after the dinner service on Saturday, Nov. 5, it will be for good. Announcing the closure last December, the Cernak family said that they would focus their efforts on Obycki's mail-order business as well as the small year-round restaurants that they have opened in airports in Baltimore and Cleveland.

An op-ed by former Oriole Brady Anderson in defense of club owner Peter G. Angelos published Tuesday on baltimoresun.com generated a tremendous response, with about half of the readers glad that someone is finally sticking up for the O's owner and the other half saying Mr. Anderson has it all wrong. Here are some highlights from Mr. Anderson's article: "I find it laughable that someone who has achieved the type of success that enables one to purchase a Major League Baseball team can be casually dismissed by many as a 'meddler.
