Seeking to create an analogy with the deal the United States negotiated with Iran to supposedly limit further production of its centrifuges, Secretary of State John Kerry chose to recall disarmament agreements between the U.S. and the Soviet Union. A better analogy would be the 1938 Munich Pact, which gave Hitler part of Czechoslovakia in the vain hope that war could be avoided. It is worth noting that several of the nations that were signatories in Munich - namely Germany, France and Britain - are also part of the current deal with Iran.

IN THE middle of a great national conflagration 138 years ago, Abraham Lincoln said: "We here highly resolve that these dead shall not have died in vain ..." Looking down on the soldiers buried at Gettysburg, he vowed that their deaths would bear fruit in "a new birth of freedom" and that our democratic government would perdure. In 1863, we were still a new nation, and the survival of democracy was at stake in a country divided against itself. As we, today, look through the billowing smoke and contemplate the lives lost in this terrorist conflagration, perhaps we also should "highly resolve."

SALISBURY, Mass. -- The Marine Corps has just announced that it is calling back several thousand Marines from inactive reserve units. After Sept. 11, all our president asked of most Americans was to go shopping, travel and maintain the economy. But our service members are asked to make sacrifices most Americans wouldn't dream of. Many Americans are saying that our troops are sacrificing in vain. They are wrong. So are those who claim that if you want to support the troops, you have to support the president.

His beloved NBA Lakers are wheezing, but Jack Nicholson is thriving. In basketball terms, the 65-year-old actor is in the fourth quarter of his career. Yet he seems to be handling it with the savvy of a veteran point guard: all the right moves to compensate for a lost step. Nicholson wisely resurrected his humility in his latest movie, About Schmidt, which opened Friday. It wasn't easy. Warren Schmidt, the title character, doesn't date beautiful women nearly four decades his junior. He doesn't flash self-conscious smirks.

A leaf-removal program has been discontinued after 25 years, saving Prince George's County $2 million. Some county residents say they raked their leaves to the curb as they had for years and expected they would be vacuumed up by the county. But they were surprised to learn the leaf-removal program had been cut. Susan Hubbard of the county's Department of Public Works and Transportation says a notice about the program being discontinued went out to community representatives over the summer.

No mother should ever have to bury a child. No child should ever die of a toothache. That tragic and unnecessary fate befell 12-year-old Deamonte Driver and his family in Prince George's County. His death last year, when an untreated tooth infection spread to his brain, prompted an effort by Maryland to ensure that poor and indigent residents receive the type of preventive and restorative dental services that would have saved the boy's life. Today, the state is finally infusing much-needed funds into the Medicaid system, to ensure care for children from disadvantaged families.

Baltimore Mayor Sheila Dixon yesterday said she regretted asking a top aide to temporarily spring a convicted felon so that he could attend his son's funeral - arguing, in part, that she had not been properly briefed on his lengthy criminal background. Dixon's chief of staff, Otis Rolley III, made several phone calls late last week in an effort to allow Charles Murel, 20, to attend his 3-year-old son's funeral. Murel is being held in Baltimore's Central Booking and Intake Facility on firearms charges and was convicted two years ago of carjacking.

Standing on the porch outside his Gwynn Oak residence, Marion Flint Sr. speaks softly and slowly about his only son, his namesake, who was killed in a roadside explosion while serving in Iraq. But inside, Flint is angry. That his 29-year-old son, Staff Sgt. Marion Flint Jr., on his second tour of duty for the Army, had to go to Iraq again for a war that he says seems so futile infuriates him. "It's not just my child; it's everybody's child," said Mr. Flint, 49, clasping hands with his wife, B.J. Flint, 50. "What's the purpose of this war?"

Lightning and thunder roiled the skies and rain threatened to extinguish their candles, but relatives and friends of two inmates recently killed in Baltimore's jail facilities did not budge from their vigil last night in front of the Central Booking and Intake Center. More than 80 strong, they wore T-shirts bearing photos of the deceased men and huddled under umbrellas, reciting prayers and poems and offering tributes. And, at times, they blasted city and state officials involved in the jails' operation with a depth of anger and sorrow that sent trembles of emotion through the crowd.
