When Lieutenant Governor Anthony Brown declined to participate in a debate this week with his Democratic rivals for the governorship Attorney General Douglas Gansler and Delegate Heather Mizeur, his name was placed on a vacant lectern flanked by lecterns for the two participants.  But WBFF, the Fox affiliate the broadcast the debate, did not call the furniture lecterns , and neither has anyone else. Everyone refers to the vacant podium .  Podium  started out as a raised platform or dais, and its meaning was implicit in its etymology, from the Greek podion , a diminutive of the word for "foot.

WASHINGTON -- When Clarence Thomas starts work at the Supreme Court, he probably will drive his own car, turn into the drive at the rear and get waved on into the garage by a smiling police officer. Just as if he had worked there for years. It is a place where a judge can work 30 or more years in genuine contentment, and get over -- perhaps quite quickly -- wounds and blisters suffered in the political process passed through on the way there.The only real looking back that one needs to do is to the precedents, the guiding law of the past.

I guess it was when our instructor handed out cold bottles of Anchor Steam beer and tasty cheddar cheese to our class at Howard Community College that I felt my appreciation deepen for the educational system in this country. The Tommy Makem and Clancy Brothers tunes wafting from the boombox helped, too. But mostly it was the beer. If there were classes like this back when I was in college, I would have never left. OK, fine, this was a noncredit course at HCC's Columbia Gateway campus the other night called "Beer History and Appreciation" taught by a man named William "Nick" Nichols, who can talk about beer the way Joan Rivers can talk about face-lifts.

OMAHA, Neb. - After President Bush finished pitching his Social Security plan to thousands of voters gathered in a stadium here Friday, he stepped into his limousine to make a second run at selling the proposal. This time, he had an audience of one. Bush had invited Democratic Sen. Ben Nelson, a moderate Nebraskan who says he is open to Bush's idea of adding private accounts to Social Security, to ride as his guest in the armored presidential car as it made its way from his campaign-style stop at the Qwest Center to the airport.

From an account of Mitt Romney's appearance yesterday at the annual convention of the National Association for the Advancement of Colored People: "Romney stood quietly behind the podium, smiling at the audience as it voiced disapproval. "               Let's voice disapproval of journalists who use words without knowing what they mean. A podium is a platform on which a speaker stands, from the Greek podion , "foot. " The object on the platform that the speaker stands behind is a lectern . An elevated platform for speakers may also be called a dais or a rostrum.

Mahoney, Thurgood's wife, be admitted.
