Marylanders will soon vote on question 4, the DREAM Act. According to Calvin Ball's Oct. 11 column, we should vote "yes" on 4 because "all students (should) have access to the education they need. " I agree, Mr. Ball. But first, let us look at who won't have access to the $16,000 annual subsidy provided by in-state tuition. Citizens from other states will not get a break (and may be crowded out as non-resident slots fill). Legal immigrants with proper visas will not get a break. Maryland kids who transfer home after attending an out-of-state school will not get a break.

AN OUTBURST against federal bureaucrats is about the safest ploy in a politician's bag of tricks. That's why Mayor Martin O'Malley ranted and raved against Washington on Tuesday - even as he agreed to a legal settlement that requires Baltimore to spend more than $900 million to repair leaky sewers. Despite Mr. O'Malley's political posturing, Baltimore got a pretty good deal. Instead of insisting that repairs be completed in five years, the U.S. Environmental Protection Agency and the Department of Justice gave the city a 14-year timeline.

I recently read the article titled "Bill would all City Council to dedicate funds for school facilities" written by Erica Green ( June 1). I applaud the Baltimore City Council for taking a strong and affirmative action to address Baltimore City's efforts to improve its public school facilities. The initiative taken by the City Council to set up an account to pay for school construction and athletic facilities is something I've strongly advocated for in my many years of public service.

The true reflection of the quality of leaders comes from their ability to lead when things don't go well or according to plan. Even with immense responsibility, it's much easier to lead when things go well. Effective leaders are those who during times of difficulty take actions true to their beliefs and not merely for political gain. On April 9, the Maryland General Assembly session did not end well or go according to plan. The state budget did not pass both chambers, hence the "doomsday" budget that some are describing as disastrous while others claim is not so bad. If Marylanders value educating our citizens and future leaders through high quality K-12 public education for all students, the importance of affordability for those attending community colleges or four-year institutions, the safety and security of their communities, and the investment in the future economic development through research and incentives to secure the qualities of life all desire, then the "doomsday" budget is, indeed, a disaster.

15 teens serve council and community by distributing $30,000 Scott Chahanovich's friends are astonished when the 16-year-old tells them what he does in his spare time: He's a philanthropist. Chahanovich, of Ellicott City, and 14 other Howard County teens sit on a council charged with doling out $30,000 in grants. "Do you actually handle this money?" Chahanovich says his friends ask. He proudly tells them, "Yes, I get to give it away. I'm in charge." This project reflects an emerging national trend to engage teen-agers in philanthropy.

Concentration of talent hurts U.S. universities As a university professor who has taught and sat on numerous admission committees over the past decade at Johns Hopkins University, Harvard University and currently at the University of London, my own experience is in agreement with the central message of Michael Hill's article on college choices: "What makes a difference ... is what you do at whatever college you attend" ("College choices: All that's Ivy...

Documentaries are not supposed to be able to attract huge, mainstream audiences. Just ask all the TV networks that don't make them any more, claiming attention spans are too short for such long-form programming. But CNN turned that notion on its head a year ago with Black in America, a documentary reported by Soledad O'Brien that was seen by 16 million people in the middle of the summer and helped ignite one of the most intense and widespread discussions of any TV production of the year.

Benazir Bhutto's assassination yesterday poses huge dangers to Pakistan - and to every nation concerned about such issues as Islamic militancy, the proliferation of nuclear weapons and the future of Afghanistan. It destroys the well-intentioned efforts of the Bush administration to foster a compromise that could lead to a restoration of democracy in Pakistan. It is also a serious blow to President Pervez Musharraf. He will be blamed for the attack, even if - as seems probable - it was carried out by forces opposed to his rule.
