Reducing health disparities is not for the faint-hearted ( "Health disparities persist today," April 16). These are complex and complicated medical, social, environmental, behavioral and political issues that get intertwined. One of the reasons health disparities persist is because of the lack of bold and courageous African American and Latino physician leadership. Yes, there are experts of all colors who give technologically brilliant PowerPoint presentations. But that is not what is needed to create the transformational societal change that must take place to reduce health disparities.

When discussing the firing of Maryland Public Defender Nancy S. Forster, let's be clear about a few things. This is not one of those "personnel matters" that is off limits to inquiry. Indeed, when a dedicated public servant charged with protecting poor people's liberty is summarily dismissed, we must demand that our elected officials and community scrutinize carefully what happened. Nor is this a story, as has been portrayed, solely about the action taken by the two governor-appointed trustees, Wray McCurdy and Margaret Mead (the third appointee, Theresa Moore, dissented)

A Baltimore jury convicted a Perry Hall couple Wednesday of killing a New York-based drug dealer. The panel had watched one of the defendants threaten a witness on the stand midway through the trial. On the 10th day of a 17-day trial, jurors saw Lance Walker, 29, lock eyes with the only eyewitness to the murder, point to a legal document, give a thumbs-down signal and warn: "I know who you are. You're going down. You're going down." On Wednesday, as the jury forewoman read the verdict finding the couple guilty of murder, attempted murder, and handgun and conspiracy charges, Walker cried.

Most recently Frederick Crews, a former English professor at the University of California, Berkeley put the boot in with his book, "The Memory Wars -- Freud's Legacy in Dispute," a criticism of Freud's continuing influence in the humanities.The ideas of the Viennese doctor who invented a new vocabulary to explain human behavior have been repeatedly debunked. The biologist P. B. Medawar dismissed psychoanalysis as an "intellectual confidence trick."

Boston -- Commencement season arrives in my city, as it always does, bearing its bumper crop of lilacs and black robes. Grunge and rap music mix in the air with pomp and circumstance. Excitement and anxiety are spoken simultaneously in the body language of soon-to-be-former students.One by one, the careful rites of passage are enacted. One by one the speakers come to verbally escort the young graduates out of the academy and into what they call the real world.I don't envy the job this year.

Staring into a video camera in the fall of 1995, 23-year-old Kimberly Spicer didn't know it but she didn't have much longer to live."What are you doing, Kim?" asked her sister, who was shooting a home video of the family's visit to their stepfather before his open-heart surgery at Harbor Hospital Center."I'm looking out the harbor window, wishing I was on the boat," said the pretty auburn-haired woman, then unemployed, struggling with a crack cocaine problem and drifting through life in lower-middle-class South Baltimore.
