It was with great disappointment that I read Archbishop William E. Lori's op-ed piece on Sunday ("Religious freedom under threat in U.S.," June 16). His claims are not supported but rather tossed off casually and embedded in numerous spiritual platitudes. The Catholic Church's credibility is at an all time low. It should be cleaning up it's own backyard. Yet as with so many in the upper echelons of the church's hierarchy, Mr. Lori fails to bring humility to the public forum - but hubris instead.

Stephanie Todd, 8, smiled broadly as she talked about the pink telescope that sits in her home. But she's even more excited about the opportunity to look through a telescope that has some history. "The first thing I'm going to look for is [the constellation] Orion," she said, "which is the kind of star that I see outside, and is always so noticeable. " If everything goes as planned for the Howard Astronomical League, Stephanie will be gazing at Orion through the Paul Watson telescope - a device built by a renowned Johns Hopkins University professor that will be the main attraction at Howard County's new observatory.

Today God unlatched a windowIn heaven where He presides.With one breath it sprung wide openTo reveal a jeweled tide.He plucked a sparklingemerald shellFrom the dazzling, crystal sea;Flung it across the universeIn a carefree moment of glee.A fragment cascaded to Earth.Where it burst upon the scene,Splashing a myriad dewdropsThat bathed the land in summer green."He makes me to lie down in greenpastures."------Psalms 23:2Jane Lippy writes from Hampstead.

Art Donovan's moving on is a reminder to me of another Baltimore, one that lives in the memories of we children of the 1960s who grew up in a wonderful city that on six Sunday afternoons every fall coalesced around a football team that was much more than that. ( "Art Donovan, vocal ex-Colts defensive tackle, dies at 89," Aug. 5.) My father had purchased season tickets to the Colts shortly after the team started playing at Memorial Stadium. As the city moved from 1957 through the 1960s and '70s, the Colt's were one of the things that we all loved.

Pretty soon we can rightly start calling Maryland "Almost Heaven -- for Gamblers." If fraternal lodges have their way, every Elks, Moose and VFW hall from Ocean City to Deep Creek Lake will have slot machines. And if Gov. William Donald Schaefer has his way, thousands of lottery outlets will install electronic gambling machines and dozens of cruise ships will enter the Chesapeake Bay packed with gamblers.In short, state government is on the verge of legalizing all sorts of gambling in Maryland.

"The Rooms of Heaven: A Story of Love, Death, Grief and the Afterlife," by Mary Allen. Knopf. 320 pages. $24.The Rooms of Heaven" is about love, death, the afterlife and several forms of madness, elements of which teeter on the edge of Oprah-land but never quite fall in, since Allen manages to steer around the puffy stereotypes that are common to such landscapes.Allen's "creative non-fiction" is fluid and fat-free. A graduate of the Iowa Writer's Workshop, she doesn't soft-pedal her own stupidity -- "what grabbed my imagination was drugs and sex and death, the sad, awful romance of self-destruction" -- nor does she bonk the reader over the head with Every Lesson Learned.

Heaven Lies About Us, by Eugene McCabe. Bloomsbury. 352 pages. $24.95. Set in the rural border towns in the north of Ireland, Heaven Lies About Us is a collection of short stories linked by a brutal and haunting tone. Glasgow-born fiction writer Eugene McCabe (Death and Nightingales) utterly nails the timbre and heartbreak of Ireland, that divided land scarcely one-fifth the size of California. Its political situation was once characterized by W.B. Yeats as "a terrible beauty." Tying together the past with the present, McCabe explores Ireland and its people in very intimate stories, creating a kaleidoscope of tales that sets into context the tragic and soul-rending struggles that continue in the country to this day. Violence, hatred, religious fanaticism and class warfare form the locus of his stories, with glimpses of genuine faith and compassion leavening the grim narratives just enough to make them bearable.

They might be a little snooty, but it would be hard to find a family more welcome in these parts than the Crawleys of “Downton Abbey” - at least in Owings Mills, home of Maryland Public Television. Just as “American Idol” in its heyday used to attract tens of thousands of new viewers to Fox affiliates like WBFF in Baltimore, so has “Downton Abbey” come to be a ratings, promotional and fundraising bonanza for PBS affiliates like MPT. “The total audience for 'Downton Abbey' is nearly twice what our other leading programs deliver on an episode-by-episode basis,” says Steven Schupak, chief content officer.

Room 110 of Johns Hopkins University's Bloomberg Center for Physics and Astronomy bears a special name on the placard outside: Rocket Room. Inside, tiny screws, metal clamps, screwdrivers, power drills and colored zip ties cover tables and shelves, the remnants of four years of work building a 24-foot-long tube scientists will soon blast into space. A team of doctoral students and scientists is fine-tuning a rocket payload that will carry a telescope 250 miles above the earth's atmosphere.

He had lost a son many years before, the boy barely more than a toddler when he died. Now another son was dead, and grief sat on him like the shawl that draped his shoulders as he rattled around the big, cold house. His wife was emotionally troubled and spent money they did not have. His subordinates were insubordinate, convinced he was out of his depth and that they could do a better job. And his country had split along a ragged seam of geography and race, boys from Maine and Vermont fighting it out against boys from Georgia and Tennessee, their bodies left broken, bloated, bloody and fly-swarmed, dead by the profligate thousands.

Both directed by Michael Powell. $24.96. *** 1/2 dvds Best known for directing one of the most beautiful (1948's The Red Shoes) and one of the most controversially voyeuristic (1960's Peeping Tom) films ever released, British director Michael Powell packed a lot more than those two milestones into his four-decade career. This two-disc set, with movies made available for the first time on DVD, offers evidence of both his talent and his singular vision.

On a recent frigid evening, I ventured into yuppie heaven -- the Whole Foods Market in the Inner Harbor East. Whole Foods began life as a natural-food store in Austin, Texas, but now has become a 166-store international behemoth, albeit a socially responsible behemoth, focused on organic, high-quality foodstuffs and friendly, competent service. Maryland has seven markets, including ones in Mount Washington and Annapolis. The one downtown occupies an expansive space with high ceilings and a concrete floor.
