Universities should be "havens for free speech and free thought," Hillary Rodham Clinton told a Commencement Day audience at the University of Pennsylvania last Monday. The platitudes ignored Penn's history of limiting free speech if it might offend "politically correct" groups.The university has vigorously pursued a charge of racial harassment against a white student for allegedly offensive remarks, while it languidly investigates whether anybody's freedom of expression was violated when a group of black students trashed an entire issue of the campus newspaper to protest an allegedly offensive column.

Tee Tillman can tell right off when it's going to be a bad day at the settlement table.Buyers who discovered a leaky faucet during a final walk-through of a house just hours earlier can't close until they get repair estimates. Sellers divorcing each other choose settlement as the time to haggle over splitting the proceeds. Or, too frequently, says the senior vice president of Fountainhead Title Group in Columbia, buyers and sellers come in on time and loan TTC documents never show up.Settlement officers have seen it all -- those snags threatening the biggest investment most people will ever make.

Editor: In your editorial "Let Them Eat Cake", you, Mr. Kennedy, display for the public at large your curmudgeonly nature, your abject ignorance and your vitriolic bitterness. To compare teachers who have not receive their negotiated salaries for three years to Marie Antoinette is patently offensive and repugnant. You should be ashamed of yourself. Your proclivity to use your position as editor of the only local paper in Harford County to lambast the county workers and teachers is shameful. Have you no ethics?
