A simple question needs to be asked by The Sun: Did gun owners living in Watertown and elsewhere in the Boston area feel safer than those who didn't have a gun? With the Boston Marathon killers literally holding the town of Watertown, Mass., hostage, I can't imagine the extent of feelings of fear, hopelessness and helplessness of those living there who did not own a gun. Watertown and other Boston area gun owners must have thanked God that they would be able to defend their families against these killers.

Watertown, New York.-- Away upstate, the scenery changes and prosperity fades. New York's rural far north is a landscape of abandoned dairy barns, Victorian farmhouses disappearing into the brush, hand-made For Sale signs and salt-scarred automobiles.Is this Clinton or Bush country? The established upstate traditiois to elect Republicans, but a governor of Arkansas ought to have a better understanding of this hilly hardscrabble land than a Houston-Washington-Maine Yalie. In many ways, Watertown is closer to Pine Bluff than to Kennebunkport.

FORT LAUDERDALE, Fla. -- His career has spanned 13 states, 11 seasons and nine organizations. Only in baseball could such a star-crossed pitcher be rescued by, well, two of the game's biggest stars.Keith Shepherd, 28, has been traded twice, released three times and selected in three separate drafts. Now, he's the leading candidate for the final spot in the Orioles' bullpen, all because of Bobby Bonilla and Roberto Alomar.Bonilla told manager Davey Johnson that the Orioles should scout Shepherd when the two were teammates last winter in Puerto Rico.
