LONDON -- Britain has sometimes fancied itself behind the United States in some important categories. These have included empire, which they lost; fashion, which they never had until Princess Diana; and food, which remains terrible. But the British are working hard to surpass the United States in the matter of sex in high places. Prime Minister Tony Blair's Cabinet shake-up has elevated a woman whose sexual history rivals President Clinton's for daring.Margaret Callaghan, the new leader of the House of Lords, has also been named to Mr. Blair's Cabinet as minister for women.

The Orthodox way of marking ChristmasIn his otherwise excellent and timely Nov. 10 article on Advent, John Rivera unfortunately erred when he stated that the Orthodox church does not commemorate Advent, but merely observes a fast.During Advent, the Orthodox church calls upon its faithful to prepare for the glorious celebration of the Feast of the Nativity. It is a period marked by a spirit of anticipation, expectation, penitence and preparation awaiting "an Advent" of the birth of the Messiah.

RealtorsThe letter from Frank Soltis (March 13) regarding real estate commissions contained several misconceptions, to one of which am particularly sensitive.Real estate trade groups, such as the Greater Baltimore Board of Realtors, do not monopolize the industry or ''discourage competition and lower commission rates.''Indeed, as a condition of memberships, GBBR requires all of its members to take instruction on antitrust laws on a continuing, periodic basis. Members are educated to conduct themselves professionally and in accordance with the law.The GBBR program for compliance with the antitrust laws is similar to those operated by associations of Realtors who are members of the National Association of Realtors.

Too Many People Spoiling The LandPeter Jay is discouraged by the rising tide of growth in Maryland (Perspective, Oct. 3). Mr. Jay rather depressingly recounts all the common economic and social factors effecting the current destruction of (our shared) Harford County. I would suggest that the disintegration of rural America is hardly inevitable. The solution to the problem of housing sprawl is really quite simple: Stabilize, then reduce, the human population.Can this be accomplished? Of course, with proper incentives.

HIV CareThe Sun reported March 17 on the results of a study carried out by researchers at Johns Hopkins University examining racial differences in HIV care.The erroneous interpretation of the study's findings leaves readers with the impression that black patients cared for at the Johns Hopkins HIV clinic are less likely to receive appropriate medications than white patients.In fact, this disparity only applied to care received by patients prior to enrolling in care at our clinic.The study demonstrated that within six months of their first visit at the clinic, these racial differences had been eliminated.

On VietnamAfter weeks of trying to express my feelings on Vietnam, Peter Jay's May 4 column said it for me.No matter one's belief on the rightness or wrongness of the decisions by Eisenhower and Kennedy that got us into Vietnam, our abandonment of the South Vietnamese, after we had promised to support them in their battle to remain free of the northern tyranny, was criminal and cowardly.President Clinton says he feels vindicated because Robert McNamara says in his book on Vietnam we were wrong.

Gun foes should erect signs: 'Gun-free home'While my deepest sympathies have been and remain extended to Virginia Wolfe and Melanie Thompson as respects their reasons for supporting gun control legislation, it is obviously apparent that their resulting grief has clouded their judgment.It is inconceivable to me how anyone can believe that any form of gun control laws would have prevented the heinous criminal acts in either of these cases, or any other similar crimes. Why then, do we consistently try to penalize the innocent because of the guilty?

Part of the ProblemYour May 27 editorial, "Gallo in Baltimore," celebrated, perhaps appropriately, the benefits to its finances and reputation that will accrue to our city from Dr. Robert Gallo's decision to bring his new AIDS research institute to Baltimore.But nowhere in the essay could one find mention of the benefits to Baltimore's victims of this terrible disease -- increased attention to their plight and the latest world class treatment that will become available.This singleness of focus on the bottom line is a compelling example of the value system that many of us politically incorrect liberals believe is seminal to the decline of what is less and less a great country.

Teaching PhonicsI am a bit confused by Catherine Froggatt's letter (Nov. 19) which stated that Baltimore County educators do not teach phonics.I am a Baltimore County educator and I, and all my colleagues, teach phonics. What is different about the reading instruction is the increase in the number of teaching strategies and materials that educators are now using to teach children how to read.I have been an elementary teacher for 34 years, and have spent 27 of those years as a reading specialist in Baltimore County.

Success in SchoolHaving the ability to get into all sorts of trouble without looking for it, I should be wise enough not to seek more controversy. However, the May 2 opinion piece by Peter Jay -- "What Do 'Honors' Mean When Everyone Gets Them?" -- rankled me.While I am not certain of Mr. Jay's thesis, my best guess is that he believes that education is some type of sport in which only certain people succeed. (I certainly hope that is not his view of medicine, because when I am sitting in the doctor's waiting room, it is my fervent prayer that he intends to cure everyone.

Shifting PositionsIf Richard Vatz and Lee Weinberg aren't careful, they might lose their lifetime memberships in the mental health flat-earth society.In their Feb. 13 Perspective article, "Making Maryland the Therapeutic State," they actually acknowledge the existence of at least "the major mental illnesses -- schizophrenia, depression, manic depression and perhaps even panic attacks and obsessive-compulsive problem."They also deign to accept the possibility of insurance coverage for these conditions "even at near-parity with other illnesses."
