Regarding Baltimore Archdiocese Vice-Chancellor Sean Caine's recent letter justifying the church's response to allegations of child sexual abuse, I am glad that in 1993 Maryland's attorney general made it clear that all abuse cases should be reported ("Archdiocese acted responsibly," Dec. 2). So much for the Catholic Church being a moral leader. When I returned to the archdiocese in 1993 to again report the abuse I had suffered, it was through Fr. William Mannion. At that point I had been in touch with 17 other victims of John Merzbacher.

Geraldine C. Harrison, co-founder of the Enchanted Forest, the Howard County storybook theme park, died Wednesday at Copper Ridge nursing home of complications of Alzheimer's disease. She was 80 and had lived on the grounds of the Howard County attraction. In 1955, she and her husband, Howard E. Harrison Jr., who died in 1988, created a wholesome, low-tech land of Rapunzel and Snow White using concrete, stucco and paint. Although faintly reminiscent of a Walt Disney production, it had a picnic-grove sweetness to it -- at a 25-cent admission price.

Ben Myers, 14, is giving a Christmas present this year that speaks volumes about him. Nine hundred volumes, to be exact. That's the number of children's books that Ben, a pupil at the School of the Cathedral of Mary Our Queen, rounded up to donate to a family health clinic and day care center in East Baltimore that was hit hard by Tropical Storm Isabel. It started in September, after Isabel struck the Lillian D. Wald Community Nursing Center at 1600 Rutland Ave. with such force that the basement was flooded with 4 feet of water, ruining the collection of children's books downstairs.

In a performance unmatched in more than seven decades at the U.S. Naval Academy, three seniors have won Rhodes scholarships, the prestigious study grants for American college students to attend Oxford University in England. The newest batch of Rhodes scholars with local ties also includes Rachel Y. Mazyck of Laurel, who graduated from college at 19 and is studying for her master's degree at Harvard University. Winners were notified Saturday, and the list of 32 was announced yesterday. Naval Academy officials said more midshipmen received Rhodes honors this year than in any since the Class of 1929, which also had three winners.

THE AVERAGE American, it must be believed, has a woefully deficient mentality and severely atrophied powers of discernment. He possesses a nature addicted to slavishness, and he is eager not only to support but also to chain himself to his masters. He bleats incessantly of being taken advantage of and seeks to redress the improprieties inflicted on him by lying, suing wildly anyone who is even remotely accessible and cheating on his income taxes. And he shows deference to all the lawyers, doctors, professional athletes and other such leeches who fleece him unmercifully.
