Now that we have reached the one-year anniversary of the infamous AIM experience in Baltimore County Public Schools, it is time to put the entire issue to rest. Several parts of the corpse have already been buried. Most importantly, the cumbersome system foisted upon teachers last December in an e-mail from then-Assistant Superintendent Barbara Dezmon is now an unhappy memory. The circumstances surrounding that "emerging bulletin" have cast severe doubt on the credibility of Superintendent Joe A. Hairston, whose initial reaction — that he was out of his office at physical therapy and knew nothing about the email — directly contradicts Ms. Dezmon's statement that "top administrators decided" on December 16 to issue the directive (Sun, 12-27-09)

To baby boomers, Mickey Mouse is the perpetually cheerful and wholesome host of the "Mickey Mouse Club." To senior citizens, he's the star of movies and shorts dating back to 1928. But to youngsters today, he's mostly a corporate icon - a shill for Walt Disney theme parks and DVDs and the familiar symbol on a gargantuan inventory of merchandise, from bed linens to pancake molds. This week's announcement that Disney plans to re-engineer the character into something edgier, more irascible, clever and heroic is no doubt disappointing to the older set. This is Mickey as some Bugs Bunny wannabe, without the Brooklyn accent.
