By now you surely know the U.S. health care system is massively messed up. But the question is why. A few years ago, health journalist Shannon Brownlee was going through some global health statistics. She noticed that even as U.S. health care costs were rising steadily, Americans were not getting healthier. How to explain this apparent paradox? Brownlee became fascinated and began to collect data in search of answers. The result is Overtreated: Why Too Much Medicine Is Making Us Sicker and Poorer, her analysis of how American health care has failed.

If the name Lawrence Brownlee doesn't yet ring a lot of bells among fans of vocal music, it surely will soon. The Ohio-born tenor's career was launched only about four years ago, but he has already debuted at London's Royal Opera House and Milan's La Scala. He can produce uncommonly elegant phrasing as easily as he can set off vocal fireworks, a show-stopping combination he delivered in Washington Concert Opera's 2004 presentation of Rossini's La Donna del Lago. Brownlee, backed by ever-supportive and technically refined pianist Howard Watkins, sparked another hearty round of cheers in a compelling recital for Washington's invaluable Vocal Arts Society Thursday night at the Kennedy Center's Terrace Theater.

There's a sister act on Arundel's top-ranked girls basketball team, but it's not easy to find. Scroll down the roster or listen to player introductions, and you won't have a clue. Every player has a different last name. Then take a second look at the roster ... hmm ... Janae and Danae, and watch junior forward Janae Butler and sophomore guard Danae Brownlee play together. "Yeah, they're sisters. It's a fun thing when they're looking for each other and you see them smiling," said Arundel coach Lee Rogers.

A Fredericksburg, Va., man hired to inspect mammography machines and other devices for nearly 15 years in Maryland and elsewhere was masquerading as a medical physicist and had no idea how to do some aspects of his job, federal authorities say. No patients are known to have been harmed at Harbor Hospital Center in Baltimore and 52 other facilities at which Perry M. Beale worked as a consultant, authorities said. They said that other safety checks were in place to prevent that. Beale, 50, a consultant whose hospital and other clients often paid him by mail, was charged Thursday in U.S. District Court in Roanoke, Va., with 38 counts of mail fraud.

The most rabid opera fans don't really need the luxury of sets and costumes, let alone any trendy directorial concepts, to enjoy the art form. They can be perfectly content with an audio-only format. For more than 20 years, that format has been the specialty of Washington Concert Opera, which served up quite an earful Sunday night - a hot performance of Bellini's melody feast, I Puritani, that packed George Washington University's Lisner Auditorium. This is a work particularly well-suited to concert-style delivery, since the plot, a romantic entanglement involving Puritans and Cavaliers, is not exactly brimming over with theatrical incident.

Arundel girls basketball coach Lee Rogers heard the doubters at the beginning of this season. His team had lost seven seniors, including four starters. There would now be no Alex McGuire, who had graduated after setting a school record with 2,086 career points. There also would be no Ana Baker or Janae Butler, both first-team All-Anne Arundel County performers. Don't feel too sorry for the Wildcats, though. As assistant coach Juan Baker - Ana's father - said, "Arundel doesn't rebuild.

Thanksgiving at the Light House Shelter in Annapolis will be simple and plain for those living there, without a home to call their own. But for some residents, the gathering will not be dim in hope or spirit. "Each one of us has our own stories," said Beverly Stone, a middle-age mother estranged from her family and recovering from a heart attack. "They try to make you as happy as you can be and it gives you a sense of pride." For the 15 men, five women and the handful of families who temporarily reside at the 206 West St. shelter and a few nearby apartments and houses, the turkey dinner served tomorrow will be a chance to give thanks for blessings that might not meet the eye. Some are just glad to be alive.
