Howard County victims' rights advocates and social service administrators spent three hours yesterday watching a satellite-linked panel discussion by national leaders on ways to stem violence in America.And they came away frustrated because what they consider the most pervasive form of violence in the county wasn't addressed."I think they're afraid of looking at family violence," said Stephanie Sites, executive director of the Domestic Violence Center of Howard County. "If you're not safe in your home, you're not safe anywhere."

Julia Walsh Gouge entered her fourth term as a Carroll commissioner with tremendous momentum. After enduring four years of being outvoted by former Commissioners Donald I. Dell and Robin Bartlett Frazier, she left the conservative duo in her dust during the county's Republican primary and emerged as the top vote-getter in last month's general election. Two weeks ago, she began her new term as the president of a board that in its first two days cast votes to reshape county policy on a slew of major issues.

Dayton, Ohio. -- There are no typical Americans, but I recently spent four hours here with 19 nice people who are surely not untypical.The participants were divided into two focus groups. The key ''screens'' for recruiting the panels were: total family income from $25,000 to $75,000, suburban residence, registered voters, ideological and party balance, and an education level no higher than a bachelor's degree. (Pollster Fred Steeper, who organized the sessions, believes that panelists with advanced degrees tend to lecture, not converse.

An hour before Mitt Romney and President Barack Obama squared off on national television on Oct. 3, the pre-presidential-debate debate got under way at Carroll Community College, with one student speculating out loud, "I wonder when the shoe-throwing is going to start?" Not to worry — no shoes, rotten tomatoes, spitballs, mean-spirited invectives or anything else went airborne. In fact, the hour-long debate, which featured a seven-member panel representing the county Republican and Democratic central committees, the Carroll County League of Women Voters, the Libertarian Party and We, The People — a local offshoot of the Tea Party movement — was cordial.

In a hot and brilliantly lit studio at Maryland Public Television in Owings Mills, a group of women sat around a horseshoe desk Wednesday night and discussed politics while cameras and tape machines whirred, clicked, hummed and recorded their images and words. It was some talk. The women were taping a new weekly PBS series. "To the Contrary," a national, prime-time news analysis show, features women as host and regular panelists, instead of the usual nearly all-male lineups.Host Bonnie Erbe, legal affairs correspondent for the Mutual/NBC Radio networks, asked panelist Kate O'Beirne of the Heritage Foundation what she thought of the presidential field and the expected nominations of Bill Clinton and George Bush after convincing wins by each the day before.

TRUE STORY: The other night, I was on a trio of panelists at a forum of mayoral candidates. Five wanna-be mayors showed up. No names will be mentioned here. It should be sufficient to note that the lone Democrat wore a dress and that three of the four Republicans were African-American.At 75 percent, this may have been the highest proportion of black candidates on any GOP slate since Reconstruction.Not-so-true story: We asked tough, incisive, blistering questions that left each candidate squirming and groping for words.

WHEN LEADING criminal justice officials in Baltimore get together, the frequent result is mutual blame and requests for more money. A recent discussion provided a refreshing exception to this rule. The panelists -- who included four judges, among them a federal judge -- came up with some concrete, inexpensive suggestions for reform. They were: The number of peremptory challenges of jurors should be curtailed. Each side can strike jurors without giving reasons. In serious cases, between 15 and 30 citizens are thus turned into cannon fodder.

I WAS assaulted on a television show once when I introduced data from a RAND Corporation study showing that 75 percent of black males earn a middle-class income. In fact, all of the panelists on that show -- 13 very prominent black professionals -- were so convinced that blacks are universally victimized that any good news, any statistical fact showing black men are not being exterminated, completely upset the agenda.But the real threat to black men is not extermination. It is the XTC psychological crippling caused by middle-class blacks, who incessantly drum into young black males the lie that they are becoming extinct.

A century ago, three words (none of them "Lewinsky") summed up the tense political situation of the day: Remember the Maine.The U.S. battleship Maine, moored off Cuba, had exploded into the night sky Feb. 15, 1898, tossing dead and wounded sailors into Havana Harbor. Its sinking tipped the United States and Spain, already locked in an intense dispute over Cuba's struggle for independence, toward war.XTC Ever since, the question has bobbed at the surface of military history: What really sank the USS Maine?

Gov. William Donald Schaefer yesterday named the remaining six members of a powerful commission that will oversee health care reform in Maryland, picking people who appear to have more health-care and insurance ties than the General Assembly envisioned.A new law requires that four of the seven members "be individuals who do not have any connection with the management or policy of a health care provider or payer."But the attorney general's office has advised the governor that the appointees meet the criteria.
