Your recent article on the city's homeless people cries out for clarification ( "Addressing the intractable problem of homelessness in Baltimore," Dec. 2). Managing homelessness in an effective and humane way (i.e., sheltering those who have no place to sleep other than the street) requires counting the number of families and individuals who are sheltered. As The Sun points out, this is required once a year by the federal Department of Housing and Urban Development, which annually funds cities and suburban and rural counties to shelter people and which provides, at best, a poor measure of whether homelessness is increasing or decreasing.

In a story that ran in Sunday's Baltimore Sun ( and here online ), Inside Lacrosse editor John Jiloty was quoted expressing doubts about the LXM Pro lacrosse tour. Jiloty was actually discussing criticism he had heard from others in the industry, not expressing his own opinion of the operation. The Sun (and I) regret the confusion. Jiloty was one of the first people to write about LXM Pro and the West Coast lacrosse movement. He authored a cover story for the December 2010 edition of the magazine that lauded the group for the work it had done to grow lacrosse.

Defense lawyers for Linda R. Tripp fired back at state prosecutors yesterday, calling their tactics "deceptive" and accusing them of "shamelessly" requesting a clarification of a judicial ruling this month. But state prosecutors didn't take kindly to the harsh language: "When you don't have a lot of substance, you use words like that," Assistant State Prosecutor Thomas M. McDonough said. A Howard County Circuit judge said she would rule Monday on a request made Friday by prosecutors to clarify an order that limited state evidence in the wiretapping case against the Columbia resident.

The government said that army patrols at Britain's airports would be kept in place for the foreseeable future. The Venezuelan, Hasil Muhammed Rahaham-Alan, 37, was charged with possession of an article for the purpose of committing terrorism, possession of an explosive substance with intent to endanger life or damage property and carrying a dangerous article on a British-registered aircraft.

Tens of thousands of students across Maryland took the all-important High School Assessments this week, but missing among the test takers were some of those less likely to pass. After schools Superintendent Nancy S. Grasmick issued a "clarification" of state regulations last March, at least one major school system in Maryland decided to let students who are failing a course opt out of that test until they can pass the course. The move, some education advocates say, could make pass rates on the test look better than they actually are at a time when there is public pressure to get rid of the high school assessments as a graduation requirement beginning in 2009.

LONDON -- As the Irish Republican Army began a 72-hour cease-fire in Northern Ireland, high-ranking republican political leaders brought a hopeful message to London yesterday and delivered a "private" letter to Prime Minister John Major from Sinn Fein President Gerry Adams.Neither side would reveal the contents of the letter, but republican leaders said that Mr. Adams asked for direct talks on "clarification" of the Anglo-Irish peace process.A declaration signed Dec. 15 by Mr. Major and Irish Prime Minister Albert Reynolds raised hopes of a quick end to violence in the six counties of Northern Ireland, as it seemed to open the way to negotiations with Sinn Fein, the IRA's political wing.

Clarifications offered for article on Muslims As a Howard County resident, I found Laura Vozzella's article on the plight of Howard County Muslims ("For better and worse, attacks breach divide between U.S. Muslims, neighbors," Sept. 18), sensitive and illuminating. However, several of her statements bear clarification. The "khimar" (more often known as the "hijab") is optional -- many Muslim women here and abroad do not wear it, and while many wear it for devotional reasons, another common motivation cited is the prevention of harassment (catcalls etc.)

Many cruise ships now wrap up their winter/spring itineraries in the Caribbean and then immediately beat it over to the Aegean and Mediterranean to offer summer voyages in the Greek islands.Americans tend to know what they'll find when island-hopping in the Caribbean (notably palm-shaded beaches and duty-free shopping), but they're not sure what to expect on a cruise abroad. This uncertainty makes them more susceptible to a brochure's purple prose and more likely to say, "Let's go for it," without shopping for the best deal.

An article in Monday's editions about pay for university presidents included an incorrect statement from the Chronicle of Higher Education that William E. Kirwan, chancellor of the University System of Maryland, turned down $100,000 in deferred compensation for 2008-2009. Though Kirwan did not receive the money in 2008-2009, it was converted into a multiyear fund that could be awarded to the chancellor at the end of his contract, based on evaluation of his performance by the system's Board of Regents.
