Last Friday morning, President Barack Obama visited Annapolis to address roughly 1,000 Naval Academy midshipmen. Then he took his seat with other VIPs and the thousands in attendance and watched as the midshipmen, decked out in their pristine dress whites, graduated and took their oaths as commissioned officers. Every year, the event is magnificent. With a ceremony of such grandeur, it should come as no surprise that, in their previous four years, the midshipmen were held to the highest standards of performance and conduct.

For Tyler Glenn, frontman of the Provo, Utah-based pop-rock quartet Neon Trees, seeing a therapist was a breakthrough in more ways than one. “It was definitely a profound thing,” said Glenn recently on the phone from Minneapolis. “I found that it was OK to have anxiety and it was OK to have some of the feelings that I had about myself.” Glenn used his therapy sessions as a creative muse when he began writing songs for April's “Pop Psychology,” Neon Trees' third album, and the therapy gave him the confidence he needed to publicly come out as gay in “Rolling Stone” earlier this year.

I am writing in support of Dean Karen Rothenberg. I was a student at the University of Maryland School of Law during her tenure, and it is my unwavering belief that all of us at the school were so very fortunate to have her guidance, her wisdom and her leadership. Her contributions to the University of Maryland and to the community at large have been significant and substantial. It is due in large measure to her principled leadership that I will always be proud to call myself a graduate of the University of Maryland School of Law. Those of us who have the privilege of knowing Dean Rothenberg know that her character is beyond reproach.

Twenty-two years ago at the end of a semester of teaching an Intro to Philosophy course, I received an unforgettable wake-up call on the issue of plagiarism. During the reading period between the final class session and the final exam, I discovered two blatant cases of plagiarized papers - I knew the books from which these papers had been copied whole cloth. So on exam day, and with apologies to those uninvolved, I brought the issue into the open. Without naming the offenders, I told the class that I expected the students who plagiarized to meet with me privately.

Robert McMillan, a five-year employee with the Harford County Department of Public Works, Division of Water and Sewer, has been named Employee of the Month for July. He was nominated by his crew chief from the Division of Water and Sewer, Tim Smith. McMillan recently went above and beyond what was called for to return money and paperwork left behind by a customer of the 7-Eleven where he and Smith had stopped for lunch. The crew chief pointed out paperwork on the counter thinking it belonged to McMillan, not wanting him to forget it. When they returned to their vehicle, McMillan noticed it was not his paperwork or money.

Shopper loses her purse and finds honesty in grocery store Today I lost my purse at Save A Lot Foods in Arbutus. I didn't realize it for almost three hours and was in a panic mode when I did. I went back to the store and asked the cashier if anyone had turned in my purse and they had. The manager had locked it in the safe. I want to take this time to thank the person, who found my purse. The manager said no name was left but I want to let him/her know how much I appreciate it. This action confirms my faith that there are still many good people around.

Crown Central Petroleum Corp., Baltimore's connection to the world of big oil, is trying something in its advertising that its bigger competitors often seem to eschew -- honesty.In a radio ad campaign that started last month, Crown admits there really isn't much difference between its gas and that of its competitors. All of it gets you from one place to another."As much as big oil companies would like to convince you otherwise, their gas won't change your life," says Crown's pitchman, Orioles great Brooks Robinson.

London. -- After Amnesty International, why not Honesty International, a group of citizens like you and me, to monitor those who are corrupt, whom they, in turn, corrupt, and the banks which hide the proceeds?Corruption has probably never been so rife in so many places. The voters and parliamentarians of Brazil have just unseated their president, Fernando Collor de Mello, because his own brother, not for the best of motives, blew the whistle on how the president took bribes from businessmen seeking government contracts.

NEW YORK -- Faced with high levels of cheating, the University of Maryland recently arranged for students who sign an honesty pledge to receive discounts at several local shops. In effect, students can now reap financial rewards by agreeing -- at least on paper -- not to lie.Without question, it's admirable that the university is taking steps to address its cheating problem, which one student leader has described as ''huge.'' And the decision to use positive reinforcement, the proverbial carrot over the stick, is sound.

Of all the frustrations I've heard ex-offenders describe - and they have plenty - this one might be the worst: A guy gets out of prison after serving his sentence, looks for a job and finds one, but a while later his new boss tells him to leave because a background check revealed a criminal record. Over eight years of fielding phone calls from people in this situation, mostly men from Baltimore with felony convictions, I've heard this story countless times. It seems to happen a lot with warehouse jobs, but occurs generally whenever the hiring is immediate.

In his recent commentary ("Punishing honesty at the Naval Academy," May 28), Professor Randall Leonard has missed the point of the honor system but has, perhaps inadvertently, raised a different but valid point. Midshipmen are, or should be, taught to tell the truth at all times. The honor system applies to all midshipmen, regardless of their class standings. Only a pathological liar speaks untruthfully when he or she has nothing at stake. The U.S. Naval Academy honor system requires honesty in spite of personal cost.

It's back to school time, meaning that many parents wonder if their child's school is a good school. After 15 years doing research in more than 100 public schools, I can usually tell in an hour if a school is good enough for my kids. And contrary to what policymakers think, school quality doesn't have much to do with fancy buildings, big budgets, how many reports get filed or how many personnel are certified. (President Barack Obama's kids study under uncertified teachers.) Even high test scores do not necessarily measure school quality - though good schools legitimately improve their students' scores, while bad schools fake or flounder.

A bipartisan group of high-profile politicians took the witness stand Thursday to vouch for the honesty and integrity of Paul Schurick, a key Ehrlich campaign adviser, who faces charges of election fraud stemming from a 2010 Election Day "robocall" that prosecutors allege was designed to suppress black votes. The day began with testimony in Baltimore Circuit Court from MSNBC analyst and former Lt. Gov. Michael S. Steele - who called Schurick "smart and careful" - and ended with Republican former Gov. Robert L. Ehrlich Jr., who praised his former campaign chairman.

Jason Giambi, apparently a little slow on the uptake, has finally learned the biggest truth about baseball's continuing wrangle with the issue of steroids: Honesty will get you nowhere. What honesty got Giambi last week was a date with former Sen. George Mitchell, the leader of baseball's official investigation into the use of performance-enhancing drugs. Mitchell must be tickled about it, because 15 months into his investigation he hadn't talked to a single active player, which was making it difficult to find stuff to put between the covers of his report.

The presidential campaign entered September rife with negativity, as the Republican National Committee launched a long-awaited assault on Democrat Al Gore's honesty and the major-party candidates strafed the countryside with increasingly vitriolic exchanges. An RNC ad - due to begin running today in 16 states - accuses Gore of perpetually "reinventing" himself and spotlights his controversial 1996 fund-raising visit to a Southern California Buddhist temple. The ad, approved by the Bush campaign, coincides with a sharply hostile turn in the tone adopted by the Republican and Democratic tickets.

Alexander Hamilton "Ham" Bishop III, a respected headmaster who led five independent schools during his lengthy career in education, died of kidney failure complications Saturday at Manor Care Health Services Dulaney. He was 85 and lived in North Baltimore. Educational colleagues said he was often sought out as a school administrator. In 1994, he was the first head of the Odyssey School, founded by parents of dyslexic children. "He gave the new school instant credibility," said Marty Sweeney, Odyssey's head.
