Kudos to Comptroller Peter Franchot for voting against the big piano purchase by Bowie State University ("Franchot plays off-key," Nov. 18). Proof that someone that is in charge of watching how our money is spent is doing his job. Thank you. Unfortunately, he was defeated by his fellow members of the Board of Public Works, Gov. Martin O'Malley and Treasurer Nancy Kopp, who approved the deal. johngalt14

At The Baltimore Sun we are scrupulous about referring to the Johns Hopkins University. That is not, as some may imagine, because we are truckling to the largest employer in the city (or to the likelihood that Baltimore will eventually change its name formally to Hopkins ). That is just how the name of the school is idiomatically rendered. That is how I heard Hopkins referred to years ago when I was an undergraduate out on the Michigan tundra. It was, however, social-climbing pretension when Ohio State University decided to style itself The Ohio State University and to insist that everyone else fall into line.* Hopkins aside, the use of the definite article with the names of colleges and universities is well established in idiom.

Michelle Obama encouraged the graduates of Bowie State University on Friday to live up to the legacy of their university's founders and the leaders of the civil rights movement by promoting the importance of education in the black community. "Just think about this for a moment - for generations, in many parts of this country, it was illegal for black people to get an education," Obama told the predominantly black crowd, referring to the period in which Bowie State was founded. "Slaves caught reading or writing could be beaten within an inch of their lives.

If nothing else, state Comptroller Peter Franchot's objection to Bowie State University's purchase of 32 new Steinway pianos for the $79 million new performing arts center it will open next year shows the state's top financial watchdog has a tin ear for value. Who would spend that kind of money on a state-of-the-art music facility and then fill it with penny-whistle instruments? At a meeting of the state Board of Public Works on Wednesday, Mr. Franchot suggested the $553,264 price tag for the Steinway-designed pianos - a mix of concert, budget and entry-level instruments - was excessive at a time of fiscal austerity.

He is airing campaign advertisements on minority-owned radio stations. He has enlisted the support of leaders in the African-American strongholds of Baltimore and Prince George's County. He will host a visit by President Barack Obama at historically black Bowie State University on Thursday. Less than a month before Election Day, Gov. Martin O'Malley is stepping up his courtship of the state's African-American community — a constituency with which the Democrat has had a complicated relationship, but which could decide the outcome of his race against Republican former Gov. Robert L. Ehrlich Jr. A pair of recent polls, including one released Tuesday, show O'Malley beginning to break away in what had been a neck-and-neck race with Ehrlich.

Ehrlich Jr. The president has also cut a 60-second radio ad for O'Malley, praising the governor on his handling of education and the economy.
