A Baltimore man convicted of assaulting and raping a 59-year-old woman at gunpoint in 2007 in her Roland Park home, terrorizing that community, was sentenced to life plus 93 years in prison Friday. "The only appropriate sentence [for the rape] is life," said Baltimore City Circuit Court Judge John A. Howard, who quoted from the opening of a "Law & Order" television series about sexual crimes being "especially heinous." "If there's a case that demonstrates the truth of that statement," he said, "it is this case."

THERE IS NOTHING a woman likes more than getting a look inside another woman's home. And, to the benefit of countless charities, many of us will pay good money for the privilege, which is exactly what a friend and I did one crisp, fall evening in Annapolis.It was a candlelight tour of 15 homes benefiting the Historic Annapolis Foundation, and it was advertised as "Twentieth-Century Living in Three Centuries of Architecture." Every home was beautifully presented and perfectly appointed.But it could have been billed as "Unfettered Access to the Homes of People Richer Than You and With Better Taste," and the breakfast dishes could have been in the sink and my friend and I would have cheerfully handed over the price of a ticket.
