Matthew VanDyke, the self-styled "Arab Spring Freedom Fighter" from Baltimore, was a friend of the two American journalists who were beheaded by Islamic State militants. VanDyke met James Foley and Steven Sotloff during his travels in Libya, and it was Foley to whom he first confided what we all later came to learn - that VanDyke was neither a journalist nor a filmmaker when he was captured and held in a Libyan prison for six months in 2011. Instead, he had gone there to fight with the rebels who eventually overthrew dictator Muammar Gaddafi.

The elderly woman who lives in the van in the shopping center on 41st Street in Hampden is Harriet Kahn. It says "Kahn" on the vanity plates of her van, but "Can" is how she pronounces her name because, she says, the softer "ah" (as in "Kaan") gives her name a pretentiousness she dislikes. Ms. Kahn is at most 5 feet tall; she says she'll be 80 in late March. She has small hands. Her hair is straight and gray; she keeps it wrapped with a scarf on cold days. She has sharp features and dark eyes with a certain savvy spark.

Does the Sunpaper's editorialist writing about Maryland Rep. Chris Van Hollen's proposed legislation entitled "The Healthy Climate and Family Security Act" know what is meant by "the invisible hand of the market"? ( "Cap and dividend," Aug. 4.) This reference is certainly not to the invisible hand envisioned by Adam Smith. Mr. Van Hollen's proposal is to require energy companies to purchase through auction a permit to drill for or mine mineral resources. Some people would call that a tax, but perhaps the difference is that those funds which the government would acquire would then be redistributed instead of being held onto by the government.
