The private ownership of property is embedded throughout the Constitution and is a foundational aspect of the American experience ("High court bolsters property owners' rights" June 26). Justice Elena Kagan's strongly worded dissent that state and local government land-use decisions would be subjected to heightened constitutional scrutiny reflects her apparently limited understanding - or more likely - socialist-leaning personal philosophy regarding the Constitution and the reasons the country was founded, one of which was individual property rights.

When Richard E. Kagan began working as an attorney in Baltimore's City Hall in 1977, he asked a fellow lawyer where to get a good haircut. The colleague demanded that they leave work immediately to go to the city's best barbershop. "But we're on city time," Kagan recounted yesterday. "He said, `It doesn't matter. Your hair grew on city time.'" Once at the barbershop, his friend recognized a man getting a haircut as Richard A. Lidinsky Sr., Baltimore's deputy comptroller at the time. "He said, `Let's leave,'" Kagan said.

Martin O'Malley and Maryland Court of Appeals Chief Judge Robert M. Bell during a series of opening celebrations next month.

How do we help our child learn to greet adults properly? My 4-year-old son doesn't greet people well. He acts shy and grabs my leg. Am I being unreasonable to expect him to expect him to say 'Hi'?Linda VianiSanta Rosa, Calif."I had the same problem with my 4-year-old," says Debbie O'Brien, a reader from Newfoundland, N.J. "I think the problem was that I tried to force him to greet people. That doesn't work very well. He is now 5, and he is much better at greeting people. It could be his maturity isn't there yet."

REP. ROBERT L. Ehrlich Jr.'s three-month fund-raising advantage in the governor's race just ended. So how'd he do? Just fair, according to a report filed recently with the Internal Revenue Service. Ehrlich's IRS filing said he raised $414,089 during January, February and March, a less-than-overwhelming figure in a campaign against Lt. Gov. Kathleen Kennedy Townsend. As a state elected official, Townsend was prevented from raising money during the 90-day General Assembly session, which included nearly all of that period.

THE TENSION THAT frequently infects Maryland's system for electing state lawmakers was on display last week, as a current and a former legislator announced their interest in moving to the state Senate. Sen. John J. Hafer, a veteran Republican from Western Maryland, accused Del. George C. Edwards, the House minority leader, of effectively forcing him into retirement, saying that Edwards told him that the delegate would be running for the seat regardless of whether Hafer willingly vacated it. Former Montgomery County Del. Cheryl C. Kagan, a Democrat, formed an exploratory committee to prepare for a run against longtime Sen. Jennie M. Forehand, also a Democrat.

With her confirmation by the Senate as a U.S. Supreme Court justice, Elena Kagan becomes only the fourth woman ever to serve on the nation's highest court. At 50, the former Harvard Law School dean and Obama administration solicitor general can look forward to decades on the bench, where we hope she'll be a moderating force on a court that, like the Senate that confirmed her 63-to-37, has become increasingly polarized in recent decades. Justice Kagan's swearing-in Saturday marks the first time that three female justices will sit on the court concurrently, and she brings impeccable credentials and a wealth of experience to the job, though she has never served as a judge.

The Baltimore Sun editorial "Confirm Kagan?" (July 6) thoroughly and accurately depicts the vacuous current state of Supreme Court confirmation hearings, as manifested in Elena Kagan's recent hearing, but concludes that she deserves confirmation because Ms. Kagan possesses strong understanding of the law and her views are in the mainstream. Thus, the Senate should promptly confirm Ms. Kagan and move on to fill the 99 present lower federal court vacancies. The upper chamber can start by swiftly confirming the 22 judicial nominees whom the Judiciary Committee has approved, 13 of whom had no opposition, but on all of whom senators have placed secret holds.

The Elena Kagan hearings were a sleepy affair. With no 12th-hour revelations and a candidate who acquitted herself as cagey and well qualified, the solicitor general proved adept at the kabuki dance of the Supreme Court confirmation process. Yet there was one exception to the otherwise humdrum hearings: the bewildering decision by Republicans to taint Ms. Kagan by her association with Thurgood Marshall. Yes, that Thurgood Marshall — Baltimore native, hero of the civil rights movement, mastermind of Brown v. Board of Education, and the first African-American Supreme Court justice.

As the Senate moves toward a confirmation vote on Supreme Court nominee Elena Kagan, the only question is how many Republican senators will support her. Will it be more than the nine who voted for Justice Sonia Sotomayor? Fewer? And what will that say about her qualities as a justice? Unfortunately, the answer will probably be: not much. Ms. Kagan followed closely the script laid out by Chief Justice John Roberts in what is widely considered a masterful performance in his confirmation hearings five years ago, repeating the phrases "settled law" and "judicial restraint" as often as possible.

Supreme Court nominee Elena Kagan is but a supporting actor in the drama that will unfold at her nomination hearings, which begin today. With the political composition of the Senate, the solicitor general will be confirmed. The more interesting question is whether the hearings will elevate above the usual spate of buzzwords and gotcha games into meaningful discussion of constitutional interpretation. Indications are stronger than usual that they might. For the first time in decades, the Constitution is a major issue in an election year.

Solicitor General Elena Kagan's ascendency to the Supreme Court should be emphatically rejected. Ms. Kagan has not yet had time to develop a mature philosophy of judging. Her vision of judicial power and its role is reflected in her adulation of former Israeli Chief Justice Aharon Barak, whom Ms. Kagan once called her "judicial hero." Former U.S. Supreme Court nominee Robert Bork, however, called Judge Barak "one of the most activist judges" and quite possibly "the worst judge on the planet."

In creating what "now" looks like, style makers in architecture, fashion and entertainment recycle many eras from the past. Within the world of interiors, however, what passes for contemporary seems strangely stuck in just one epoch. It's only a slight exaggeration to say that no room can be considered up to the moment in 2006 unless it somehow pays homage to "Mid-century Modern." It's de rigueur to include an Eames chair, for instance, an Isamu Noguchi light fixture or an Eero Saarinen table.

Of all the things in the hundreds of thousands of pages of Supreme Court nominee Elena Kagan's paper trail, the one she may regret the most when her Senate confirmation hearing opens today is a 1995 University of Chicago Law Review article about the very process she's about to undergo. She argued that high court confirmation hearings had become useless "lovefests" between question-dodging nominees and compliant senators. The hearings revealed "far too little" about the nominees' views about the law and the constitution, she wrote.

It was refreshing to see The Sun's position in its letter to President Obama this morning ("Thanks for the letters, Mr. Obama" May 18). President Obama, in announcing Elena Kagan as his Supreme Court choice, apparently alluding to her role in the Citizens United case, said "...powerful interests must not be allowed to drown out the voices of ordinary citizens." This refers to a second round of oral arguments last September in the Citizens United case, which Ms. Kagan and the U.S. government ultimately lost and the First Amendment won, when it became apparent that Elena Kagan holds that banning political speech can be constitutional.
