I thought we were done with Donald Trump, but, no, he's back again, saying more crazy things and getting more attention. What sad, delusional things is he talking about now? What else? He's still claiming President Barack Obama's birth certificate is fake .  Before suckers start falling for this nonsense again (Trump had almost half of Republicans doubting Obama's birth certificate before), let's remind ourselves about the true nature of Donald Trump. Exhibit A: Comedian Amy Poehler's speech at Harvard yesterday.

ESPN analyst Mark Dixon took a spin through the 18-team field of the NCAA tournament before joining The Baltimore Sun for this Q&A. The former Johns Hopkins midfielder discussed surprises in the bracket, the debate over the final at-large spot, and the most exciting first-round game. Who was your overall impression of the field? I think the selection committee did a pretty good job. I really don't have any issues with the way the criteria are framed. It comes down to RPI [Ratings Percentage Index]

While the lock on Supreme Court nominees by Harvard and Yale is to be deplored ("A supremely limited pool of high court candidates," May 16), it will be hard to break. For over 130 years there was not a Jewish justice on the Supreme Court and very few Catholic ones. However if Elena Kagan is confirmed, there will be six Catholic justices and three Jewish ones. For many years the WASP establishment controlled our government, and now that is a scenario of the past. For about the same time, entry into elite universities was restricted for minorities, and this too has changed.

If confirmed as a Supreme Court justice, Elena Kagan will bring greater diversity to the court by adding a third woman. What she will not bring is educational diversity. Her confirmation will leave the court entirely composed of former law students at either Harvard or Yale. President Barack Obama's decision to select a nominee from one of these two schools is particularly disappointing as a replacement for Justice John Paul Stevens — an iconic figure on the court who was also its only graduate from an alternative institution (Northwestern)

There's nothing like saying "thank you" to a few loyal state government aides by sending them off to Harvard for three weeks -- at taxpayer expense. That's exactly what Gov. William Donald Schaefer is doing this summer in an arrogant display of lame-duckism at its worst.With six months to go till the end of the Schaefer administration, the governor is handing the state comptroller the bill -- roughly $45,000 -- for a bunch of lame-duck Cabinet secretaries and other political appointees to attend a program for senior executives in state and local government at Harvard's John F. Kennedy School of Government.

Let's get the last name out of the way first. It's Juszczyk. Somehow, from that lonely vowel and thicket of consonants, comes a pronunciation of YOOZ-check. Don't feel bad if you don't say it right the first time. No one ever does. No, check that. One guy did. "We had a Polish card-swiper at our dining hall" at Harvard, said Kyle Juszczyk, the rookie fullback the Ravens selected in the fourth round (130th overall) of the NFL draft. "And he actually nailed it on the first try. But he's the only one. " Instead, Juszczyk picked up a nickname that made life simpler.

No. 15 Harvard hung on in the last quarter Saturday to beat No. 17 Princeton, 9-8, and earn an Ivy League tournament spot.

After more than three years in the courts, Bank of America will pay $39 million to settle a gender bias case in its Merrill Lynch brokerage operation. The women who brought this suit allege executives at the brokerage favored male employees by giving them the more lucrative deal opportunities, the choice clients, and more frequent promotions and raises, and that women who complained experienced retaliation. The firm's history with minority employees is far from stellar. In the 1970s, the firm settled a suit and agreed to make its workforce more diverse; these initiatives were never fully implemented.

WASHINGTON - Smiles turned to tightened jaws at the most recent reunion of Harvard University's black alumni. The mood shift, as reported in The New York Times, occurred when two very prominent black faculty members reported encouraging increases in Harvard's black enrollment, then raised questions as to where those new black students were coming from. Law Professor Lani Guinier and Henry Louis Gates Jr., chairman of the African and African-American studies department, reported that 8 percent, or about 530, of Harvard's undergraduates are black.
