As a Roman Catholic, I am appalled by the draconian response from Cardinal-designateEdwin F. O'Brienas noted in your recent article "Archdiocese of Baltimore defies health rule" (Feb. 8). For Mr. O'Brien to state that he would rather leave the 3,500 employees of the archdiocese without health insurance of any sort - rather than comply with the law of the land - is a truly heartless response. Moreover, has Mr. O'Brien been isolated in his ivory tower for so long that he has forgotten about the extreme overpopulation that many parts of our world presently face?

Lois O'Brien-Cronin, the former dean of students at Villa Julie College who later worked with an academic and career counseling program for women at the Community College of Baltimore County's Essex campus, died of a stroke Thursday at Gilchrist Hospice Care in Towson. The longtime Mays Chapel resident was 84. "She was one tough broad, but she had a great sense of humor. She was just a hoot," said Paula K. Minsk, who was director of education at the Stratford School of Business in the 1990s, where Mrs. O'Brien-Cronin had also worked.

 Soledad O'Brien will be at Towson University next Wednesday to lead a discussion of her "Black in America" documentary series.  "My ultimate goal is to help people have a conversation about race in America," the former CNN anchor said.  It's likely to be a charged event.  Some students formed a White Student Union on Towson's campus two years ago, with members conducting "safety patrols" at night.  The group is not officially recognized by Towson University because it has not met certain requirements to become a sanctioned organization.

Quarterback Danny O'Brien signed with Maryland in 2009 in part because of Ralph Friedgen. O'Brien wanted to win in college and play in the pros, and it wasn't unreasonable to believe the longtime Terps coach would be there for him, helping him, from his freshman-year snaps to his Senior Day game. Where else would they go? We know those answers now, and so their reunion Saturday doesn't seem all that bizarre. But to have Friedgen, happily unemployed and the coach of the Medal of Honor Bowl 's American team, game-planning at a largely unheard-of senior showcase with O'Brien, a senior at Division II Catawba College (N.C.)

Rookie long-stick midfielder Jesse Bernhardt ( Maryland) was chosen as the Warrior Defensive Player of the Week after the Chesapeake Bayhawks' 12-8 win over the Rochester Rattlers on Saturday night, Major League Lacrosse announced Monday. “Jesse Bernhardt continues to improve each week and this was his best game of season in my opinion,” Bayhawks coach Dave Cottle said. “He played great on-ball defense and did a tremendous job of rotating, sliding, and continues to impress me with picking the ball off the ground.

Former Maryland and Wisconsin quarterback Danny O'Brien is transferring to Catawba College, a Division II school in Salisbury, N.C., for his final season, Todd Willert, O'Brien's high school coach at East Forsyth in North Carolina, confirmed to FOXSportsWisconsin.com. "He just wants to go and have some fun and play some football," Willert told the website. Catawba is roughly 50 miles from O'Brien's hometown of Kernersville and provides the fifth-year senior with the opportunity to play right away.

Baltimore Sun reporter Jeff Barker and editor Matt Bracken weigh in on the three biggest topics of the past week in Maryland sports. What do you make of former Terps quarterback Danny O'Brien leaving Wisconsin and looking for a new school? Jeff Barker: First, a global comment. The NCAA rule allowing many graduate students to play immediately after transferring has had a noteworthy effect on the game. It has generated a class of college “free agents,” of which former Wisconsin quarterback Russell Wilson is perhaps the best known.

After playing for two teams and four head coaches in four seasons, quarterback Danny O'Brien is again college football's version of a free agent, hoping to find a school where he can fulfill the promise he showed in a redshirt freshman season at Maryland that seems long ago. “Funny circumstances” is how the 2010 Atlantic Coast Conference Rookie of the Year describes the unusual arc of his college career. O'Brien said in an interview Monday that he won't return to Wisconsin next season and is looking for a suitable spot to use his final year of eligibility.

CNN and Soledad O'Brien Thursday announced a new deal that will take her out of the morning weekday anchor chair and make her an independent producer of documentaries for the channel. The move by new CNN chief Jeff Zucker is a smooth one that keeps a talented journalist connected to the CNN brand while paving the way for the one-time executive producer of the "Today" show to launch a weekday morning show of his own design featuring Chris Cuomo and most likely Erin Burnett, who is now struggling in the ratings weeknights at 7 p.m. on CNN. The new deal gives O'Brien, an award-winning correspondent for her work on such CNN productions as "Black in America," a guaranteed income producing non-fiction programs for the channel through a production company she will form.

Baltimore Sun reporters Jeff Barker and Don Markus and editor Matt Bracken weigh in on the three biggest topics of the past week in Maryland  sports. What is the mood of Maryland's football program heading to West Virginia on Saturday as a four-touchdown underdog? Jeff Barker: I'm certain Maryland appreciates the magnitude of its task Saturday -- to try to hang with a Top 10 program boasting one of the nation's most prolific offenses. The Mountaineers are averaging 612 yards of offense through their first two games.
