The Catholic-school teacher had a pre-teen student pinned to the ground in his Baltimore classroom, the girl's blouse open and her chest exposed when the doorknob suddenly turned and the school principal - a nun - burst in. The screaming girl thought she was about to be rescued, according to court records that describe the scene at the Catholic Community Middle School in Locust Point. But Sister Eileen Weisman, who had a key to the room, merely chastised the teacher, John Joseph Merzbacher, for locking the door.

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.

Marie Trinite Whittie, an artist who affectionately depicted Baltimore in her paintings of its rowhouses and street scenes, died Saturday of chronic obstructive pulmonary disease at Mercy Medical Center. The Bolton Hill resident was a day short of her 87th birthday. Born Marie Elizabeth Trinite in Pikesville, she grew up on Madison Street and attended the Cathedral School before graduating from Eastern High School in 1938. She earned a fine arts degree at the Maryland Institute College of Art. Mrs. Whittie worked while smoking a cigarette, and - during baseball season - listening to broadcasts of Orioles games that she played loudly on two radios, neighbors said.

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.
