Ravens nut as front-page news? Hardly

With serious fiscal issues facing the nation and a governor who is contemplating repealing the death penalty, among other things, it's remarkable that The Sun chose to devote a third of its front page to a story about a video of an enthusiastic Ravens fan that went viral on YouTube ("Bel Air resident's freakout over the Ravens is a hit on YouTube," Jan. 16).

Perhaps this would have been an appropriate fit in the sports or entertainment sections, but on the front page?

No wonder we have such a proliferation of low-information voters.
