With all respect to reader Ralph Schmidt's opinion about Paul Revere, the facts bear out neither his nor Sarah Palin's portrayal of Revere's ride. Ms. Palin attempts to paint a picture of Revere as a provocateur, waving the proverbial red flag in front of a bull to get it to charge, warning the British not to mess with the colonies. However, Revere's own hand betrays Palin's inaccuracies: In a letter written about his famous ride, Revere describes himself and his company (Revere was not alone in his efforts)

Imagine a classroom where math is taught through the works of Matisse and reading is learned through a dramatic skit instead of a textbook. That's the scenario at several Anne Arundel County public schools that use the practice of arts integration. "Arts integration strategy gets students to work with creativity. It gives them a chance to work with critical thinking," said Suzanne Owens, a visual arts coordinator for AACPS, where administrators believe a fusion of arts and core objectives gives students a better — and longer-lasting — learning experience.

CHICAGO - If you explore Boston's Freedom Trail, you'll see some of the places where we started to become a nation. Walking the 3-mile route, after you visit the building where the Boston Tea Party was planned and before you get to Bunker Hill, you'll come to Old North Church. There, on the night of April 18, 1775, two lanterns were hung in the steeple to signal the arrival of British soldiers headed toward Lexington: "One if by land, and two if by sea." After the signal was given, Paul Revere mounted his horse to alert the Colonial Minutemen to prepare to fight - thus commencing the American Revolution.

WASHINGTON -- Roughly three years ago, news commentator Pat Buchanan, a self-styled Paul Revere of Republican conservatism, celebrated his surprising 37 percent vote against President George Bush in the 1992 New Hampshire GOP primary by declaring that he had sent "King George" packing back across the state border into Massachusetts.It was a clever line and it was valid for the moment, because the showing by this blustery fellow -- who had never even run for sheriff anywhere -- was a major embarrassment for the sitting president.

Dearest Sarah, You are my hero! It would have been so easy to say, "Oops, I misspoke. You see, I've been on the road, I haven't slept much, and I have this terrible fire in the belly. Of course, Paul Revere wasn't warning the British…" But no. You stuck to your story with, "I know my American history. " What do those Bostonians know about Paul Revere anyway? The important thing here is that you looked so attractive while saying it! Where were you, Sarah Palin, when I was getting a "D" in American history in college?

Tonight, Jon Stewart dedicated his program to an epic Glenn Beck-style parody that might be his best work this year.  Some of his best lines:  • "The only real difference between Glenn and Paul Revere is that when Paul Revere told you the British were coming, they were, in fact, coming. "  • "I don't think I want to live in an America where Charles Manson tells our children what [they] can watch on television. "  • "What I'm about to say to you is the kind of thing that will make you wonder how I even dress myself in the morning.

They're the people organizing this weekend's 20 t h annual Springfest, four days (it opened Thursday) of food, frolic and nonstop entertainment that pretty much launches the resort's summer season. And they're hoping this weekend will serve as something of a starting gun. "Absolutely," says John "Sully" Sullivan, the department's special-events director.

In April, former Gov. Robert L. Ehrlich Jr.'s message to fellow Republicans in Howard County, delivered by his wife, Kendel, was a plea for guidance and support as he pondered another run for the Maryland state house. "This is all about you," Kendel Ehrlich told a packed Lincoln Day party dinner six months ago. "You need to tell Bob Ehrlich what you want him to do." Now those Republicans in this key political barometer county are cajoling, chanting, almost demanding that Ehrlich run for governor again against Democrat Martin O'Malley, but he is still not willing to commit, or even set a deadline.
