I've been thinking a lot about college lately. It's not as though it's staring me in the face, either. The oldest is finishing his freshman year in high school. The youngest is still in elementary school. Still, what's occurring on America's college campuses is on my front burner. First and foremost is the ever-escalating cost of a four-year degree - the cause of many a sleepless night for moms and dads. Tuition, fees, room and board for many private colleges has now hit $60,000 a year.

With a tap on his smartphone, University of Maryland student Shiv Krishnamoorthy can instantly alert police as he walks through the dimly lit corners of the College Park campus — and share with them his precise location, plus live video and audio.

I appreciate the Sun's recent coverage of the issue of sexual assault on college campuses ( "New guidelines to battle sexual assault at colleges," April 29).

Westminster Mayor Tom Ferguson said he never imagined he would find himself welcoming to town the author of a play as candid and jarring as The Vagina Monologues. But feminist playwright Eve Ensler, who promotes her work around the world, is coming to Carroll Community College for a local rendition of her play Friday. It is the county's fifth performance of The Vagina Monologues, and organizers said they have been hoping for years to lure Ensler here. Still, given Ensler's celebrity and worldwide travels, activist and organizer Sylviea Tejeda can't believe the celebrated playwright is visiting.

John Kerry, the presumptive Democratic nominee, over Bush, 48 percent to 38 percent. Independent candidate Ralph Nader drew the support of 5 percent.

Last Friday, the White House announced an "It's On Us" initiative aimed at combating sexual assaults on college campuses. I'm all in favor of combating sexual assault, but the first priority in combating a problem is understanding it. That's not the White House's first priority. Roughly six weeks before Election Day, its chief concern is to translate an exciting social media campaign into a get-out-the-vote operation. Accurate statistics are of limited use in that regard because rape and sexual assault have been declining for decades.
