A lesson that has been learned during my 80-plus years of reading The Sun is that berating an editorial is more therapeutic than productive. Nevertheless, it is incomprehensible why even the revolting title of the "Draft Freeman" (Aug. 22) editorial was published inasmuch as the body of the piece failed to provide any logical basis for your view that you, or anyone else, should have the right to condemn or override a decision made by Freeman A. Hrabowski III not to become chancellor of the University System of Maryland.

As Gov. Martin O'Malley has extended a welcoming hand to immigrant children fleeing Central America, Democratic gubernatorial candidate Anthony G. Brown and Republican rival Larry Hogan have staked out starkly different positions on whether he is doing the right thing. Brown, O'Malley's lieutenant governor, is backing the governor's actions in joining with religious leaders to help federal efforts to resettle unaccompanied minors while they await immigration hearings. Hogan opposes O'Malley's position.

The Sun makes endorsements in the following races in Anne Arundel County: District 30-A Voters in this Annapolis area district have the rare privilege of being represented by incumbent House Speaker Mike Busch, and Democrats should avail themselves of the opportunity to nominate him for an eighth term. His record in leadership has been commendable, and he has done much for the district as well. But the redrawn district also affords Democrats the chance to capture a second seat in the two-person district.

Sen. Brian E. Frosh of Montgomery County continued to dominate financially in the race for the Democratic nomination for attorney general with $864,000 in the bank -- almost twice as much as his nearest opponent. Frosh reported Tuesday that he has added $215,000 to his campaign coffers since  since the General Assembly session ended in April. That brings the total he has raised this four-year cycle to $1.2 million. The report covered activity since January, but neither Frosh nor his two opponents were permitted to raise money during the three-month session because Maryland law forbids legislators to do so. Del. Jon S. Cardin of Baltimore County edged Frosh in terms of money raised since the end of the session, taking in $228,000 despite bad publicity about missing 75 percent of his committee votes this year.

President Barack Obama was in Prince George's County today to tout a new $7 million federal initiative to expand programs that help high school graduates prepare for jobs in the region. In a state whose prosperity depends on a highly educated workforce, Maryland needs to distinguish itself not only for the quality of the young people it sends off to college but also for producing students who are prepared to succeed in the workplace as soon as they graduate from high school. Despite the emphasis on raising academic standards and making higher education more widely available, not every student is ready for college immediately after high school.

The Boycott, Divestment and Sanctions (BDS) movement is a pernicious undertaking that frequently targets academic organizations pressuring them to boycott and condemn Israel. Recently, as The Sun's editorial reports ( "A chilling effect," March 10), the BDS campaign has found its way into Maryland via the University of Maryland Baltimore County and its relationship with the American Studies Association. This ASA boycott unfairly punishes Israeli institutions and scholars for a political conflict that is out of their control and has been condemned by over 200 colleges and universities.

"Beyond Narrative," at University of Maryland Baltimore County's Kuhn Library Gallery, combines the work of two artists who employ photography in their work. Jenny Lynn creates photographic collages. Their juxtapositions of dissimilar elements gives them an elusive, surrealistic presence. Jill Mathis, with her blown-up photographs of the American rodeo, attempts to capture its fast-paced action and its telling details. We don't need to see more than part of a body at an angle and a hand raised in stuttering motion to infer that somebody's being thrown from a horse.

The decisions taken by the American Studies Association, a small, relatively obscure scholarly organization devoted to the study of American history and culture, rarely resonate much beyond the ivied walls of academe. But earlier this year the group created an unaccustomed stir when its members voted to endorse a boycott of Israeli academic institutions as a way of protesting that country's treatment of Palestinians. Supporters of the Jewish state were quick to denounce the move as anti-Semitic and anti-Israel, a charge the ASA denied.

Rep. C.A. Dutch Ruppersberger, who has established himself as an authority on intelligence issues in Congress, will face a Democratic primary in June from an opponent who has spent his career working in the intel community. Paul Rundquist, a 25-year-old Gaithersburg resident, works as a contractor for the U.S. Department of Energy, reviewing Cold War-era documents slated for declassification to make sure they don't contain nuclear secrets. Before that he worked as a contract intelligence analyst for the agency.
