It's entirely expected for a homicide detective to learn the identity of the victim, and it's not exactly unusual for that same investigator to solve a murder now and then. But, generally speaking, any detective who achieves the second goal without accomplishing the first has done a pretty neat trick.Oscar "Rick" Requer is that detective.In a rare and unlikely series of events, Detective Requer, a 13-year veteran of the Baltimore Police Department's homicide unit, has managed to charge a New York drug trafficker with a 5-year-old drug slaying in Pimlico, leaving only one awkward little detail:"We think we know why he was killed, how he was killed and who killed him," says the detective.

Several weeks ago I, and other women voters in Howard County received four glossy mailers attacking Allan Kittleman, the Republican candidate for county executive. The mailers were distributed by Mr. Kittleman's opponent, Democrat Courtney Watson, and her political allies. The allegations they contain are shocking and misleading. The truth is Mr. Kittleman never "called for arming teachers and principals. " A 2006 newspaper article mistakenly attributed that statement to him. The Watson team has admitted its error but has not sent out a retraction.

I have to agree with commentator Jacob Simpson's take on the Ray Rice's domestic violence case ( "Ray Rice is not a victim," July 31). As a 60-year-old survivor of a 13-year relationship where the violence escalated from verbal to physical abuse, I remember each time I was attacked my partner screamed: "Why do you do this? Why do you push my buttons? Why do you have to be such a [expletive]!" All abusers blame the victim. The attacks on me were perpetuated by alcohol abuse, and 99 percent of the time all I did was ask a question or make a statement - which in his mind meant I had it coming.
