Brendon Ayanbadejo joked that he has been walking around the halls of the Ravens' training facility a little slower because his pockets are full with money the inside linebacker thought he had lost. On Friday, Ayanbadejo confirmed what he had written on his Twitter account, verifying that the NFL informed coach John Harbaugh that Ayanbadejo should not have been ejected from Monday night's loss to the Jacksonville Jaguars and that he will not be fined for striking right tackle Guy Whimper.

In a little-heralded announcement earlier this week, the Organization for the Prohibition of Chemical Weapons declared that the Syrian government of Bashar Assad had handed over the last 1,300 tons of its declared chemical weapons stockpile to international inspectors. News reports indicate the Syrian stocks of nerve gas and other chemical agents were loaded aboard U.S. ships that will transport them out to sea where they will be destroyed. At a time when the world's attention has been focused on the escalating sectarian conflict spilling across Syria's border into Iraq, the news was one of the few bright spots in an otherwise grim situation.

The mob that could not contain itself or wait to put Moammar Gadhafi on trial - that instead presided over his bloody end - is cut from the same cloth as their former dictator. They cannot possibly preside over Libya's affairs gently or justly. Hence, your editorial calling Mr. Gadhafi's end a vindication of President Barack Obama's policy in Libya is premature ("Death of a tyrant," Oct. 21). The mob's behavior foreshadows bitter clan rivalries, sectarian violence and consolidation of power in Libya.

Perhaps the editorial writers at The Sun would care to offer an apology to the Republicans, Sen. Ted Cruz and the tea party who all called for a delay in the implementation of Obamacare back in September and October ( "The Obamacare repairs," Nov. 16). Perhaps the Sun editorial staff should opine that this administration has been all about campaigning and absolute power but not about the hard stuff of governance. Perhaps the board should call out President Barack Obama for his "plausible deniability" claims that he was never informed or knew about all the flub-ups (Benghazi, IRS targeting of tea party and conservative groups, the HealthCare.gov website mess and more)

When New York Giants general manager George Young was on a talk show after hiring Jim Fassel as his coach last month, he was peppered with the usual questions about why he didn't wait to try to hire Bill Parcells.Young replied, "I hired the best available coach."The emphasis was on the word "available.""I said it five times," Young said last week.His comments were brushed off. Parcells had been so successful in getting out the message that he was going to be free of his New England Patriots contract at the end of the season that his cheerleaders in the New York media assumed he was going to be available.

Barton F. Walker III, Carroll County assistant state's attorney, got what he wanted -- a conviction of Pamela Snowhite Davis, the county's best-known marijuana activist. After the trial, he said the conviction on three counts -- possession of marijuana, possession of drug paraphernalia and maintaining a common nuisance -- is a vindication of the Carroll County Narcotics Task Force. He may be right, but the vindication could be short-lived.Ms. Davis has said she will appeal her conviction.

WASHINGTON -- Not surprisingly, White House Press Secretary Mike McCurry was quick to proclaim "vindication" for President Clinton in Judge Susan Webber Wright's dismissal of Paula Jones' sexual harassment suit against him. In the narrow legal sense, he could do so -- vindication in the specific charge that whatever happened in that Little Rock hotel room in 1991 didn't damage Ms. Jones in her job or her psyche.But Judge Wright's action included no finding on the allegation that started the whole fiasco -- that then Governor Clinton exposed himself to Ms. Jones and solicited a sex act from her. Only in the unlikely case of the dismissal being overturned on appeal will that charge be raised in court again, and even then we might never know the truth.

Vindication, undefeated winner of the Breeders' Cup Juvenile and leading contender for the Kentucky Derby, will miss the Triple Crown series after injuring a suspensory ligament while training at Santa Anita Park in California. The news came yesterday after a week of speculation about the colt's condition. Trainer Bob Baffert had abruptly changed Vindication's training regimen and then bristled at questions about the popular horse, a son of Seattle Slew owned by Florida-based Padua Stables.

WASHINGTON - Both President Bush and Democratic leaders on Capitol Hill tried yesterday to capitalize on the election in Iraq, with the White House saying it was a ratification of its political and military strategies and Democrats saying it should open the way for a clear exit plan. With the State of the Union address scheduled for tomorrow night, both parties appeared to be maneuvering to gain political advantage from the relatively peaceful vote. White House officials said the address was being rewritten to celebrate the images of jubilant Iraqis at the polls as part of a "democratic wave" that has also swept Afghanistan and the Palestinian territories.

The Maryland state employees' pension system reported last week that it grew to more than $40 billion during the 12 months that ended June 30 as it posted a 10.6 percent return on its investments. That performance exceeds both the state's assumption that it would earn 7.75 percent and the 8.6 percent average performance for the types of assets that the fund owns. Pension fund officials pointed to the showing as vindication of its investment strategies, which have been criticized by a conservative think tank.

A few words on the death of Elwin Wilson. He passed last week in a South Carolina hospital at age 76. Wilson had endured heart and lung problems and had suffered a recent bout with the flu. There is little reason you would know his name, but as a young man, Wilson made a virtual career out of hatefulness. He was a Klan supporter who burned crosses, hanged a black doll in a noose, once flung a jack handle at an African-American boy. In 1961, he was among a group of men who attacked a busload of Freedom Riders at a station in Rock Hill, S.C. In none of those things was he unique, so no, his name should ring no bells.

Two and a half years ago, I wrote a column about getting nailed by a speed camera in Baltimore for the first time, and, let me tell you, did the righteous readers of this newspaper - people who never ever ever drive over the speed limit - give me a load of grief. They accused me of being a danger to society and of using precious space to grind a personal ax in public. They believed in the machines. Around the 50th email, I had to stop reading what a loathsome guy I was on account of my delicate condition.

Not just because Episode 2 of Homeland's second season ends with a damning piece of evidence against him, but because Carrie Mathison's about to be back on his trail. Even as Brody is pulled in different directions by his family, his country and his faith, he's also going to have to deal with Carrie. She was right about him all along, and she's about to figure that out. The action in the episode centers on a covert operation in Beirut, designed to take out big target Abu Nazir -- Brody's friend and Carrie's obsession.

Baltimore's effort to recover millions of dollars in lost revenue stemming from the wave of home foreclosures that followed the collapse of the housing market in 2007 was vindicated Thursday when Wells Fargo Bank, the nation's largest mortgage lender, agreed to pay at least $175 million to settle claims that it discriminated against African-American and Hispanic borrowers by steering them into high-cost, subprime mortgage loans. Baltimore will receive $7.5 million, and seven other communities - Chicago, Cleveland, Los Angeles, New York, Philadelphia, the San Francisco Bay Area and Washington - will benefit as well The Justice Department, which announced the agreement, said it is the second largest fair-lending settlement in its history.

In choosing a slate of pro-Western moderates to form a new national assembly, voters in Libya'sfirst elections since the ouster of former dictator Moammar Gadhafi last year have shown that the rise of democracy in the Arab world doesn't automatically lead to governments dominated by Islamists. Preliminary tallies from the balloting Saturday indicate a coalition led by Mahmoud Jibril, an American-trained engineer who served as interim prime minister of the rebel government in Benghazi, holding a substantial lead over a rival bloc backed by the Muslim Brotherhood.

WASHINGTON -- As Robert S. Bennett walked out of the federal courthouse here a couple of weeks ago, a student asked the president's lawyer for an autograph. "Want a little advice?" Bennett quipped to the young visitor. "Be a dentist."As the Paula Corbin Jones case dragged into its fourth year, exposing Clinton to increasingly salacious charges of sexual misconduct, Bennett had been taking a beating, attracting unaccustomed criticism for his handling of the lawsuit -- especially his failure to dispense with it long ago.But Wednesday night, after the Jones case was dismissed by a federal judge, Bennett waltzed into the tony Palm restaurant downtown to hearty applause, sipped Dom Perignon on the house and celebrated the biggest victory of his career, one that would go a long way toward vindicating the bearish and blustery $475-an-hour lawyer.

Stephen P. Amos was a little-known bureaucrat managing an obscure state agency when he found himself swept up in a high-profile public corruption probe three years ago. Last week, it came to an official end as federal prosecutors, in an unexpected move, dropped their indictment of him for allegedly misusing federal crime-fighting grant money. But the vindication came with a heavy price tag for Amos, who says that at age 45 he must virtually start all over. "It had a devastating effect on pretty much every aspect of my life," Amos said of the lengthy investigation.

The movie "Game Change" was designed to depict the narrative from the left about Sarah Palin as being true. The movie was about the narrative. The progressive/liberal left must be terrified of a Sarah Palin resurrection, as they are re-crucifying her with this movie. The truth cannot be stopped and cannot be silenced. For that reason, Sarah Palin will emerge like a stainless steel alloy from the forge of politics. As the American people realize the lies behind the various narratives from the Obama administration, elected and appointed progressive/liberal government officials and delivered by a complicit mainstream media, both the political left and the media will lose credibility, support and relevance.

A report this week that Maryland students made greater gains on national reading and math tests than their peers in nearly every other state is the clearest sign yet that the decade-long effort to increase school funding and make teachers and principals more accountable is working. The National Assessment of Educational Progress, informally known as the Nation's Report Card, is the only standardized exam that allows student performance to be compared across states, and the results clearly show that Maryland's concerted school reform efforts have pushed its students toward the head of the class.
