WE ARE CERTAIN the Anne Arundel Medical Center's board would not have chosen Madison Homes to develop its Annapolis site had it known about the developers' past troubles. The board could not have known that the company's principals, while operating a company with a different name, left a trail of shoddy projects, broken promises, lawsuits and court judgments. Board members, undoubtedly, didn't know that one partner, Russell Rosenberger, lost his Virginia law license after acknowledging that he tapped into trust accounts he'd managed.

The mystery of how three babies in the critical care nursery unit at Anne Arundel Medical Center were inadvertently poisoned by morphine has been solved. A bevy of investigators concluded last week that a pharmacist at the Annapolis hospital made a mistake in mixing drugs that were given to the infants.While we're glad the truth has been discovered, we can't be altogether relieved.The incident is disturbing not because a mistake was made at a respected local hospital, but because such a mistake could have happened anywhere.
