Its incredible that with all of the articles on HIV and AIDS, the fact that the FDA has finally approved of a 15-minute over-the-counter test for HIV has barely been mentioned ("Rapid at-home HIV test gains federal approval," July 4). You talk about unprotected sex, you talk about abstinence, you talk about condoms, etc., but here we have a method to "privately and immediately " determine whether your partner is HIV positive. One would think this would be a strong deterrent for unprotected sex, but it seems like it's a taboo subject.

With at least two cable television shows — VH1's "The OCD Project" and A&E's "Obsessed" — featuring people struggling with obsessive-compulsive disorder, awareness may be on the rise. And Dr. Charles Mansueto hopes to give attention to the disorder on a more local, grass-roots level. Mansueto, of the Behavior Therapy Center in Silver Spring, has been treating those with obsessive-compulsive disorder for more than 25 years, and he says that the illness can be effectively managed.

Really, it is amazing that the victory by Scott Walker was almost ignored by your paper ("The lesson of Wisconsin," June 7), but it is surely a victory for those who understand the choice we must make in November and get rid of the amateur in the White House. What would happen to The Sun today if there was a choice for readers here? It would fold if there was any choice in Maryland for the morning paper. If there was a choice, you may be sure my subscription would lapse today. Mike Sherman

And you wonder why the rest of the country calls Baltimore bush league, no pun intended. Here is young lady, daughter of a two-term president and granddaughter of a president, vice president, head of the CIA, Congressman and World War II Navy pilot hero who could be living in tall cotton in Texas (vs. crime city Baltimore) and teaching in an exclusive community. But she is here teaching inner-city kids in this cesspool city, and some people get bent out of shape because she got a little "extra" attention because she was robbed ("Jenna Bush burglary commands attention," June 24)

Hansen does not need to try to be noticed. The nearly all-white colt always stands out among his peers. Yet on Thursday morning, the Breeders' Cup juvenile champion did all he could to draw the attention of a robust crowd on his first day this week at Churchill Downs. A 10-1 choice on the morning line for the 138th Kentucky Derby, Hansen's antics didn't leave trainer Mike Maker concerned. "Looks like he really had his eyeballs on Take Charge Indy out there," Maker said.

No. 7 Maryland's defensive approach to Saturday's road contest against No. 12 Colgate sounds like a simple task: pay a lot of attention to Peter Baum. That's easier said than done. The junior attackman leads Division I in points per game (5.7) and goals per game (3.9) and was named the Patriot League Offensive Player of the Year last week. The Terps are still debating whether to assign sophomore Michael Ehrhardt or freshman Goran Murray to Baum, but Ehrhardt - who has shadowed Johns Hopkins senior atatckman Chris Boland and Navy sophomore attackman Tucker Hull this season - said Baum is unlike any other player the defense and defensive coordinator Kevin Warne has faced thus far. “He can do everything,” Ehrhardt said.
