According to a report released earlier this month in the widely respected health research journal The Lancet, the United States now ranks 60th out of 180 countries on maternal deaths occurring during pregnancy and childbirth. To put it bluntly, for every 100,000 births in America last year, 18.5 women died. That's compared to 8.2 women who died during pregnancy and birth in Canada, 6.1 in Britain, and only 2.4 in Iceland. A woman giving birth in America is more than twice as likely to die as a woman in Saudi Arabia or China.

A sedan driving the wrong way on eastbound Interstate 695 near the Curtis Creek drawbridge struck an SUV carrying a mother and two small children, killing one of them and the sedan's driver, late Sunday. The sedan, driven by 21-year-old Victoria Lynn DeAngelo of Dundalk, entered the outer loop of 695 near exit 1 driving in the wrong direction around 10 p.m. Sunday and crashed into an SUV, Maryland Transportation Authority Police Sgt. Jonathan Green said. The SUV carried Kimberly Kaye Taylor, 29, of White Marsh, and her two daughters, Lily Joseven Kelley, 3, and Mackenzie Grace Kelley, almost 3 months old. Baltimore Fire Rescue responded and had to rip the roofs off both vehicles to extricate all occupants.

As an Ellicott City neighbor of Columbia who has enjoyed many aspects of downtown over the years, let me weigh in and say that, from my perspective the current proposal for Symphony Woods is going in the wrong direction. Toby's Dinner Theatre is wonderful. Toby's is art. Toby's does not make a neighborhood vibrant. Toby's patrons go immediately indoors when they arrive and are sequestered for up to five hours. Even on the best weather days only about 20 patrons go outside between the dinner and show and at intermission. Most go for a smoke, the rest to use their phones. After the show all depart within 15 minutes. And after hours eating, drinking and being entertained, they do not go for more desserts and drinks. All of the vibrancy is contained indoors, not out in the neighborhood.

Republican Senate candidate Daniel Bongino began airing his first television ad Wednesday, a largely introductory spot that argues that Washington has "left behind significant portions of our inner city. " Bongino, who is seeking the GOP nomination in Tuesday's primary, is running the advertisement statewide on cable, according to his campaign. He speaks directly to the camera in the 30-second ad, arguing that "failed social policies" have destroyed "generations of families. " "We're headed in the wrong direction but that doesn't mean we have to keep walking," says Bongino, a former Secret Service agent who lives in Severna Park.

Today, people are beginning to realize that the food they are purchasing from food chains and grocery stores may not be that healthy, considering they don't know its origins. This is where the recent and growing local food movement comes in. Now Americans want food they know, so they look to local farms. Many suburban and urban families in Maryland turn to farm stands in Baltimore County, such as the Smiths' farm in Springfield. People can trust food from these familiar farmers.

RACINE, W.Va. - Sen. John Kerry, battling a slide in the polls, unleashed a torrent of criticism against President Bush yesterday, telling mineworkers at a Labor Day rally in this swing state that the W in Bush's name stands for "wrong." "Wrong choices, wrong judgment, wrong priorities, wrong direction for our country," Kerry told supporters, his voice echoing through a sun-soaked valley in the heart of coal country. "The choice in this race is very simple, West Virginia. It's very simple, America.

To understand why Republicans have a "branding problem," you first need to understand how the system is rigged against conservatives. Such is the schizophrenic dysfunction of our politics: We constantly demand "conviction" politicians who will "do what's right" -- and then condemn them, often in the same breath, for being unwilling to put aside their conviction and their sense of what's right. But such condemnation does not fall equally on conservatives and progressives alike. For the progressive's principle is, at its core, more.

- A week ago, the Ravens got beat by an old quarterback. On Sunday, they got beat by two rookie quarterbacks, one playing on one leg and the other having thrown only nine passes in his NFL career. The Ravens are in trouble. Big trouble. Not only did they lose to arch rival Pittsburgh last Sunday, but then they lost to the uppity Redskins in overtime in the Battle of the Beltway. Beep, beep, beep. That's the sound of the Ravens backing into the playoffs. That might be the only way they get there, especially with the Denver Broncos, New York Giants and Cincinnati Bengals left on the schedule.

MORGANTOWN, W.Va. - Don Cummings, a 62-year-old West Virginian, has lost about $20,000 in the recent nose dive on Wall Street and says he has his doubts about President Bush. Like others interviewed here this week, he worries that the economy is headed in the wrong direction, that Bush isn't being tough enough on corporate America and that he has failed to give investors much reason to be confident. Maybe, he says, Bush's decisions are influenced too much by big business. But overall, he likes what he sees.

Adrian Bowie makes playing in the NIT sound as appealing as food poisoning. "We don't want to be there again," said Maryland's senior guard, who played in the also-ran fest as a freshman. "It was horrible. " I know, I know ... don't you hate how he sugar-coats it? But the way this season's going, Bowie and his teammates may be headed back to the unique postseason hell that is the NIT, the tournament that makes pulse rates slow whenever it's mentioned. Maryland's 91-83 loss to Virginia Tech in Blacksburg Tuesday didn't help its chances of going to the NCAA's Big Dance, that's for sure.
