I took a deep dive last week into Baltimore's drug scene. And when I finally came up for air, I had a newfound clarity on the city's troubled TV image and the line between responsible documentary filmmaking and exploitative reality television. Online Monday, I previewed a National Geographic Channel program that depicted Baltimore as a drug-infested wasteland of vacant rowhouses and lost lives. It's titled “Drugs, Inc.: The High Wire,”and if you missed it last week, you can see it again this week at 8 p.m. Wednesday.

Letter writer Judy Chernak eloquently addresses the realities of fighting a war against a terrorist organization that has enmeshed itself in a civilian population ( "Hamas must give up its rockets before talks can proceed," July 29). Every Palestinian child who dies is considered by Hamas to be a martyr and a worthwhile sacrifice. Their belief system values death over life. Those who sacrifice their lives receive many riches and their families are honored. At the same time, Hamas astutely recognizes that the rest of the world values life over death, and they also realize that the media focus on the civilians who are killed and that grieving families benefits their cause.

I have read many articles about Michael Peroutka, the Anne Arundel County Council candidate for District 5 ( "Hogan, GOP concerned about Arundel candidate's ties to secessionist group," July 25). These articles are mostly made up of name-calling, rumors and other allegations without any evidence or sources other than the Southern Poverty Law Center, which is a tainted source at best. Where are the articles that actually include facts? Where are the supposed exposes on the other candidates?

A 57-year-old Glen Burnie man pleaded guilty Tuesday to theft of thousands of aluminum carts from the U.S. Postal Service that will cost more than $2.8 million to replace, according to the U.S. State's Attorney's Office. Officials allege Roland Michael Muir and another man stole about 2,030 containers and sold them to metal recyclers for more than $323,000. Prosecutors said Muir worked for a private mailer company in Baltimore driving a box truck, and from July 2010 to 2014 he drove the truck to two U.S. Postal Service bulk mail centers in Capitol Heights where he took the large containers and loaded them on the truck.

The reactions triggered by the Board of Estimates' recent approval of a study of the feasibility of converting St. Paul and Calvert streets back to two-way traffic have demonstrated that this city is at a crossroads. Policies are changing and new ideas are emerging, yet there is still a significant obstacle ahead of us: challenging outdated mentalities. Forty years of car-centric urban planning have turned Baltimore into one of the most congested areas in the country, but some still argue that solutions lie in rush-hour parking restrictions and signal optimization.

The murder of three Israeli youths made the back pages of The Sun several weeks ago ( "A dangerous turning point in Israel," July 7). The unjustifiable beating of the Palestinian teen made the front page on two separate occasions. Is Jewish life less precious? As a 70-year reader of the Sun, I am curious about the newspaper's position. Paul Alpert, Baltimore - To respond to this letter, send an email to talkback@baltimoresun.com .

Thanks for publishing letter writer Roz Heid's comments, which expresses the opinions held by many of us ( "Obama's disastrous immigration policy," July 10). The U.S. is justly proud of its inclusiveness, and most people want to be hospitable to newcomers. Today's arrivals, however, are from one particular area and represent a special problem since they constitute an extremely large group and therefore are not easily assimilated. They are supported by the fashionable doctrine of multiculturalism, which encourages them to bring their language and culture with them, instead of adopting the language and customs of their new country.

Growing up on the Eastern Shore afforded Alex Stinton plenty to describe. The subjects surrounded him: the sounds, the wildlife, the water. The boy who grew up reading in the bayfront community of Wittman, and later dug into William Wordsworth, has parlayed his skill for prose into the nation's largest undergraduate literary prize. Stinton, a senior studying English and creative writing at Washington College, took home $61,382 as the winner of the Sophie Kerr Prize during a ceremony Tuesday night at the Enoch Pratt Free Library . Jurors noted Stinton's knowledge of classical works, which was prevalent in his poetry.

Kudos to Mickey Steinberg for his comments about Del. Jon Cardin's absenteeism ( "Cardin's missed committee votes are inexcusable," May 10). Who could excuse failing to show up 75 percent of the time? Is there any job that allows that and retains that person? Sen. Brian Frosh is indeed the mature, intelligent and experienced candidate for the office of attorney general. Joy Shillman - To respond to this letter, send an email to talkback@baltimoresun.com .
