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.

WASHINGTON -- The canny young women of National Cathedral School's Class of 1999 invited a columnist to deliver their commencement address, knowing that no matter what columnists say, they say it briefly. However, you can no more embarrass a columnist than you can a sofa, and this one recalled that 18 years earlier, in a column alerting the world to the birth of a member of the Class of 1999, Victoria, he had prophesied:"For many years young Victoria, wearing blue velvet dresses, will sit demurely reading Louisa May Alcott.
