Some readers asked me to explain why I don't have a problem with steroids in Major League Baseball. In short, professionals are paid to be the best athletes they can be, and if they want to risk jail to gain an advantage, that's their right.

Yesterday, a guy apparently snapped and using a gun and a hammer attacked a Jeep SUV that was outfitted with a speed camera. A state contractor inside the Jeep, which was parked on the side of the Baltimore-Washington Parkway, managed to escape unharmed.
