A prospective student at the Community College of Baltimore County sued school officials in federal court this week, contending that he was denied admission to an academic program based on an expression of his religious beliefs. Brandon Jenkins, who is being represented by the Washington-based American Center for Law and Justice, said in the lawsuit that when asked what was most important to him during an interview with CCBC officials as part of the application process last spring, he responded: "My God. " Shortly afterward, he was denied admission into the radiation therapy program, and he asked the program coordinator for an explanation in an email.

THERE'S a little something for everyone in the long-awaited evaluation of the Community College of Baltimore County by consultant James L. Fisher. For college Chancellor Irving Pressley McPhail, the $22,000 Fisher report is a bouquet. Five years ago, when the school's board of trustees hired McPhail from the St. Louis area, Fisher and colleagues conducted a much more elaborate study, finding CCBC in a state of near chaos. No longer. "In virtually every area that counts," the new report says, "CCBC is better now than it was in 1997."

BCCC and CCBC. That's the lamentable alphabetical hodgepodge by which Baltimore City and Baltimore County community colleges, respectively, are divided. If it confuses you, rest assured that it also confuses headline writers and Bell Atlantic information operators.Never mind the thinking, or lack of it, that went into the naming of the two entities.It is enough to know that the two-campus Baltimore City Community College (BCCC) is celebrating its golden anniversary, while the three-campus Community Colleges of Baltimore County (CCBC)

In an era when higher education leaders switch colleges as often as utility infielders switch baseball teams, the five-year anniversary of a campus executive is not to be taken lightly. And if that's not enough reason for Irving P. McPhail to celebrate his nickel anniversary as chancellor of the Community College of Baltimore County, he also has this: a salary bonus worth an estimated $135,000. When CCBC's board of trustees hired McPhail, 53, away from a community college in St. Louis in 1997, it was so desperate to bring order to the sprawling system that it offered him a year's salary as incentive if he lasted five years on the job. The trustees also hoped the bonus would help keep a chancellor who had four jobs in 10 years before coming to CCBC.

Make the wealthy pay more FICA tax Given the current economic meltdown, is there any rational reason to keep the FICA income tax cap at the current maximum of $106,800? As it stands, tax revenue from FICA, some $838 billion in 2006, represents approximately 35 percent of federal tax revenue. Eliminating or altering the cap could go a long way toward reducing the horrific deficits with which we risk saddling our children and their children, and probably their children. President Barack Obama, who indicated he might reconsider the cap during his campaign, could keep his promise not to increase taxes for those earning less than $200,000 by leaving things as they are for people with incomes from $106,800 to $200,000 and dropping the cap for those above the higher figure.
