Some studies have suggested that music exposure might improve intellectual development. And just in case they're right, 18-month-old Mason Buswell has been getting the saturation treatment since before he was born. His dad used to put headphones on his mom's belly when Mason was in utero - playing everything from New Age jazz to Led Zeppelin - and now the toddler is enrolled in a weekly music class in Clarksville. Scott Buswell, Mason's father, says that while he doesn't know if it's having any effect, it sure is fun. "He's been dancing since he was able to stand," Buswell said, "and he loves these classes."

AS OUR NATION is racked by crisis, it can't hurt to remember that other countries look to the United States as a role model of democracy. Before the terrorist attacks of Sept. 11, three women from Zambia arrived in Maryland to learn about American democracy. They stayed in Calvert County and spent time in Washington. They visited Howard County last week, meeting with civic leaders and comparing notes on topics such as gender issues, government policies and grass-roots organizing. The trip was sponsored by the League of Women Voters and the State Department as part of an effort to promote democracy in underdeveloped countries.

Buswell, lobbyist for the Maryland Association of Boards of Education, said yesterday deep cuts in state programs that help Baltimore and the 23 counties pay for school buses, Social Security and retirement benefits for teachers, out-of-state placement of special education students, and other educational programs could wipe out all but about $60 million of the one-year increase in school spending known as "APEX."
