Like a lot of children her age, Skylar Kagan, 5, loves to dress up. She owns five tiaras and a handful of superhero outfits. She and her twin brother, Matthew, so enjoy disguises that their parents, Jonathan and Marnie Kagan of Annapolis, keep two trunks stuffed with costumes. She went as Wonder Woman last Halloween. "Skylar just never misses an opportunity to become somebody else," Marnie Kagan says. This weekend, the kindergartener will have a chance to blend the magic of make-believe with U.S. history when she and other girls don gowns and crowns, visit the William Paca House, and share curtsies, tea and table talk with Queen Anne, the British monarch for whom Skylar's hometown was named 317 years ago. Well, not Queen Anne exactly.

Birth ControlEditor: A recent Sun editorial ("Birth Control in City Schools," -- Nov. 21) stated, "Many favor urging abstinence -- sound advice, but inadequate without information on protection."This editorial ignores and obscures the fact that abstinence education is advice on protection. In fact, abstinence is the only sure, dependable protection against AIDS, other venereal diseases and premature pregnancy.It seems ironic that during a time when a sexually transmitted plague is spreading through the populations of the world, the public schools still teach early sex education which instructs children in human sexual reproductive technique.
