It's not every day that a law professor has his book quoted by the Supreme Court, and so the University of Baltimore's Michael I. Meyerson was understandably intrigued when his 2012 work about the Framers' views on religion made it into Monday's decision on public prayer. But the plug from Justice Anthony M. Kennedy, who wrote the majority opinion, was somewhat bittersweet. Meyerson says the decision misread the point of his book and took the quote out of context in a way that allowed the justices to draw an entirely different conclusion about how the Founding Fathers approached religion in public.

For Michael Meyerson, the Great Seal of the United States encapsulates the struggle over the relationship between religion and government that has become a defining characteristic of our nation. The front of the seal, with its famous eagle, olive branch and arrows of war, is entirely secular. But the reverse, in which the eye and the inscription both refer to a divine providence, is "undeniably religious," Meyerson writes. Americans are constantly reminded of that duality, since the seal has been reproduced on $1 bills since 1935.

A bill that would limit the benefits of Howard County's untested senior property tax credit law is to be submitted by County Council Chairman Calvin Ball. The east Columbia Democrat said his bill will encompass the recommendations made by a citizens task force that the council created last month to re-examine the Republican-sponsored tax cut, which was unanimously approved a week before last year's election. "Based on what I heard and read, I'll put in a bill to apply the recommendations," Ball said after the council was briefed on the committee's suggestions Monday by Ted L. Meyerson, chairman of the task force.

A task force appointed by the county to examine tax breaks for senior citizens may expand its work to include other segments in need of relief. "There is a consensus among the [County] Council that the scope of our investigation should be broadened," Ted L. Meyerson, chairman of the task force, told the group Thursday. He characterized the prospect as a "high probability." The needs of renters and the disabled are the sectors most likely to be examined, although Meyerson said that the council might wish to include the "general poor," as well.

If you think outwitting an NFL defense is complicated, try foiling counterfeiters. Late last week, as the Tennessee Titans and St. Louis Rams fine-tuned their game plans for today's gaudiest of American sports extravaganzas, Jason Meyerson and associates kicked off a strategy millions of times more complicated than anything you can find in a National Football League playbook. Meyerson and his company, PSA/DNA of Newport Beach, Calif., tagged each and every football to be used in Super Bowl XXXIV with synthetic DNA markings that are permanent, unique and invisible to the naked eye. "As methods of authentication have grown more sophisticated," says Meyerson, president of the company, "so have the criminals figuring them out. We've had to get smarter.

Howard County Council Democrats have promised to vote for a Republican-sponsored property tax cut for seniors on the night before Halloween - and just eight days before the general election - but the GOP isn't taking any chances. Council Chairman Christopher J. Merdon, a co-sponsor of the bill and the Republican nominee for county executive, sent out a "Senior Alert" e-mail to organize a lobbying campaign on behalf of the tax cut after Democrats postponed a vote Tuesday. He said he was "extremely disappointed" by the Democrats' action.
