MARTINSBURG, W.VA. Pulitzer Prize-winning reporter Tom Ricks asked an audience of about 40 people Tuesday night to visualize a general in Washington as he looked out of his Pentagon window at the Potomac River, his mind plagued with problems. That general is worried about "breaking the military" - hollowing out the force and hurting readiness and effectiveness. He's worried about Iraq, where, for the first time in history, the U.S. military is occupying a country in the heart of the Arab world and likely will be there for years to come.

It took 20 years of research and design to build the best amplifier for the best sounds because local resident Eric Pritchard says he will not build anything second-rate.

Because of his love of music and his awareness that the musicians and engineers who designed amps weren't communicating, he began developing an amp design for Annapolis guitar maker Paul Reed Smith in the 1980s.

TALLINN, Estonia (AP) -- NATO agreed Friday to begin handing over control of Afghanistan to the Afghan government this year, a process that if successful would enable President Barack Obama to meet his target date of July 2011 for starting to bring U.S. troops home. But the accord appeared short on details and timelines, and U.S. Secretary of State Hillary Rodham Clinton warned of a rocky road ahead in a country beset with a resilient insurgency, limited resources and a weak, sometimes dysfunctional central government.

MOSCOW (AP) -- President Barack Obama and Russian President Dmitry Medvedev signed a preliminary agreement Monday to reduce the world's two largest nuclear stockpiles by as much as a third, down to the lowest levels of any U.S.-Russia accord, and counter what Obama called "a sense of drift" in the countries' relations. "We must lead by example, and that's what we are doing here today," Obama declared in a Kremlin hall glittering in gold.

PRAGUE (AP) -- Casting aside years of rancor, President Barack Obama and Russian President Dmitry Medvedev on Thursday signed the biggest nuclear arms pact in a generation, lacing the moment with new warnings of sanctions for an intransigent Iran.

We don't hate, we improve To the editor: As I was reading the op-ed page on Sunday, Feb. 8, I noticed a letter titled "Hatred, not handholding, is disgusting" by Sid "Bud" Davars. To me, the writer appears to be a young and intelligent man with whom I can agree with in some areas, but find it impossible to agree with in others. Mr. Davars, you spoke disparagingly of the older generation and probably have the right to complain in some cases. But I would have to say that your defense of the homosexual lifestyle is totally without merit.
