Thank you for your portrayal of the recent downtown Baltimore sit-in ("'Occupy' protesters gather," Sept. 5). Reporter Peter Hermann 's account of a 53-year-old former real estate broker who quit her job to sell costume jewelry and now complains about not being able to afford "a bookkeeper" and a "web designer" brought home the degree of self-absorption, entitlement, neediness and sheer dweeb-iness of the assorted suburban PTA moms, tenured sociologists,...

FOR GRADUATE students, money habitually is in short supply. And by now, the pool of scholarships and grants to help ease that need for next school year largely is drained.

WASHINGTON -- A former graduate student at Yale writes in the Chronicle of Higher Education that she has purged her shelves of certain professors' books because she can no longer read them ''without literally becoming nauseated.'' What sickens her is that the professors resisted recognition of a graduate-students' union. That is just one form of the strife that is depressing the quality of increasingly expensive college educations.Last year, to protest what they consider ''exploitation,'' Yale graduate students who are teaching assistants conducted a ''grade strike,'' refusing to turn in grades for the undergraduates they had taught.

THE UNITED States was once the leading destination for smart and wealthy foreign students in search of top-notch higher education. Then 9/11 happened and Americans learned that two of the hijackers had entered this country on student visas. This country's relationship with foreign students has not been the same since. Strict screenings are now required of all student visa applicants, and the rules for staying have been significantly tightened, as have requirements for colleges to track foreign students.

Liquid nitrogen, which researcher Sean O'Hearn described as "colder than the moon," looks like a witches' brew of steam, and yesterday a working group of fifth-graders from Tench Tilghman Elementary School saw a spellbinding use for it at the Johns Hopkins University School of Medicine. "You know the best kind of science there is? The kind you can eat!" O'Hearn told the half a dozen youngsters, who were visiting for the second annual Community Science Day, as he energetically added elements of chocolate ice cream - milk, cocoa syrup, sugar and peanut butter pieces - to the liquid nitrogen moments before the lunch break.

In "Iago's Plot," a Japanese-inflected adaptation of Shakespeare's "Othello," graduate students in Towson State University's theater program have replaced Elizabethan couplets with haiku and Kabuki verse.The student actors tell the story of intrigue and betrayal in a Japanese-style singsong alien to most American ears. Their voices soar, swoop and dip. Characters rotate their hands and arms, using their scarves to punctuate the sentiment of their dialogue. At the side of the stage, members of an anonymous chorus strike blocks of wood with thick sticks, accentuating spoken words.
