Brandi Wietscher, a fifth-grader at Lida Lee Tall elementary school in Towson, has a few candid words for Gov. William Donald Schaefer."I really think it's sad that however many things you could shut down . . . you have to pick a great school that has been around for 130 years," she wrote in a letter to the governor.In these tough economic times, one of the decisions Mr. Schaefer must make is whether to shut down the state's only laboratory elementary school -- a move that was recommended recently by a state budget analyst.

Elizabeth Benedict's third novel is as diabolically constructed as a sting operation in which it is the narrator who gets stung into tragic self-knowledge. Half movie and half novel, with its two halves watching each other as balefully as the KGB once watched the CIA, and vice versa, this rueful relic of Cold War mentality is a tour de force in point of view showing that love at its most political is when it gets most intensely personal.Kate Lurie is a documentary filmmaker in her early 30s who loves and marries a man of the 1950s in his 50s, Eli "Mac" MacKenzie, a veteran Cold War Foreign Service officer.

Say the word "JoLida" around Baltimore, and people may think you're talking about a new pizza restaurant. Say it in Hong Kong, and audiophiles know you're talking about the reasonably priced hi-fi stereo equipment with an avid following in Europe and Asia, and more demand than it can meet. For all its international reputation - about half of Annapolis Junction-based JoLida Inc.'s sales are in Europe and Asia - there is not a single store in the Baltimore metropolitan area that sells the company's vacuum-tube amplifiers and compact disc players.

Our ShameEditor: When I learn about libraries closing because federal funds have been cut off and shelters closing for lack of money and everywhere people are losing their jobs, I feel saddened and angry.Here we are, the richest country in the world, but our citizens are not willing to pay for essential services. That's why we don't have universal health insurance, which most industrial countries do have.All that most U.S. citizens seem to care about is not to have to pay more taxes. And our Congress refuses to accept its responsibility to vote the money necessary for social programs -- they wouldn't be re-elected if they did!

Lida Lee TallEditor: I can't believe it. Gov. William Donald Schaefer is going to close Lida Lee Tall Learning Resource Center without ever entering the building, without ever meeting with parents, without even responding to parents' offer to pay a tuition increase of 50 percent next year.The governor is wiping out, not merely cutting back, 125 years of educational excellence, experience and stability. Lida Lee Tall is a model elementary school serving mostly Baltimore City children.It hosts researchers from around the state who test new programs and curriculum on the racially and economically mixed student population.

Mature people, at least those whose lives have turned out well, tend to believe that their own early education, however it was acquired, made them what they are today. Many of us who attended the Lida Lee Tall School represent the extreme of this conviction.I, for one, sincerely believe that my elementary education in that remarkable institution was for my purposes, ideal. Rather than shut it down, as Governor Schaefer has proposed, why not build on its distinguished history?It is important to recognize, however, that defending the Campus School, as we called it in 1934 when I graduated, may have little relevance to the Lida Lee Tall Learning Resources Center 57 years later.
