I read with some interest Paul Marx's commentary about the anniversary of Brown v. Board of Education ( "60 years after 'Brown,' mixed results," May 16). I concur wholeheartedly with Mr. Marx's assessment that the Brown decision was a hallmark for equity in our country and that cities need better schools if they are to retain residents. His remaining conclusions deserve a second look. The intent of the Brown decision was to ensure that every child gets a quality education regardless of the color of his or her skin.

An Army report addressing the environmental risks of germ warfare research at Fort Detrick is "hopelessly inadequate," a counsel for a Washington public interest group has said.The Army claims its work does not pose any significant environmental threats, but the Army has failed to go back and decide if the research was necessary in the first place, Andrew Kimbrell, of the Foundation on Economic Trends, said this week."Any risk is too high if the research is unnecessary," said Kimbrell, policy director and counsel for the foundation, which has long been concerned about the dangers of biological warfare research.

CAPE CANAVERAL, Fla. -- NASA's astronauts say their space shuttle training suffers from technical glitches, inexperienced instructors, outdated textbooks and a shortage of simulator equipment, according to an internal agency report.The report, based on a survey of the astronaut corps, found that, although shuttle crews have managed to make up for shortfalls in the program by teaching themselves, the training system is "grossly inadequate" for handling more than 10 flights a year, something the National Aeronautics and Space Administration hopes to do starting in 1993.

An environmental advocacy group filed legal action against the city of Baltimore Wednesday, alleging that the city has not complied with a 2002 agreement to lessen sewage outflows that pollute area waterways. The group Blue Water Baltimore filed a motion in federal court to join an existing federal enforcement action that required the city to take a number of steps to address alleged violations of the Clean Water Act. In the motion, the group claims federal authorities "failed to adequately enforce" the water cleanup agreement, called a consent decree, they and the city reached in 2002.

Over 200 years ago, political theorist and philosopher Edmund Burke memorably remarked: "The only thing necessary for evil to flourish is for good men to do nothing. " This truism comes to mind when assessing the reaction of the University of Maryland, Baltimore County to the recent vote by the American Studies Association (ASA) in favor of an academic boycott of Israel. The ASA, of which UMBC is an institutional member, is the nation's oldest and largest association dedicated to the interdisciplinary study of American history and culture.

WASHINGTON -- The Federal Aviation Administration lacks an adequate system for checking the quality of commercial airplane parts, creating a potential safety risk for airline passengers, according to a new oversight report. "Neither manufacturers nor FAA inspectors have provided effective oversight of suppliers; this has allowed substandard parts to enter the aviation supply chain," states a 24-page report from the Transportation Department's inspector general. Federal investigators assessed the oversight of suppliers to the nation's major aircraft manufacturers - Boeing Co., Bombardier Aerospace/Learjet Inc., General Electric Aircraft Engines, Rolls-Royce PLC, Pratt & Whitney and Airbus SAS. They found "widespread deficiencies" at all but one of 21 suppliers who make parts for those companies.

WASHINGTON - President Bush's plans to reform the nation's espionage community were criticized as inadequate yesterday by lawmakers and members of the Sept. 11 commission, setting the stage for a struggle between the White House and Congress over how much power to grant a proposed intelligence czar and counterterrorism center. The White House proposals were dissected during rare August hearings held by committees in both houses of Congress. Much of the criticism came from Democrats who are pushing for a more aggressive restructuring of the intelligence community.

Just in time for the biggest beach-going weekend of the year, an environmental group warned yesterday that it may not be safe to swim at many ocean and bay beaches in Maryland and the rest of the nation.Pollution forced authorities in Maryland and 21 other coastal states to close beaches or advise against swimming more than 2,600 times last year, according to a survey by the Natural Resources Defense Council released yesterday.But just because a beach is not closed or posted is no guarantee its water is clean, the Washington-based group says, since state and local swimming-safety standards are inconsistent and often inadequate.
