The search continues for people to blame in the death of Wayne Martin Rabb Jr. The 15-year-old was fatally shot Feb. after he was chased from the parking lot of a video store.As fate would have it, Rabb was a student at Northern High School. He had been beaten nearly unconscious in front of the school Jan. 16. Police and school officials believe the first beating and Rabb's shooting might be linked. A former Northern student was arrested last week and charged with killing Rabb.So the answer's simple: Blame the school.

As he stood at the altar of the Episcopal Cathedral of the Incarnation, Bishop John L. Rabb choked up, then dabbed at tears with his handkerchief. A hymn-filled service Saturday at the North Baltimore cathedral marked Rabb's retirement after more than a decade as bishop suffragan of the Episcopal Diocese of Maryland. In that role, Rabb has been one of the top leaders in the diocese, overseeing ordination of clergy and education. As visiting and retired bishops, clergy and parishioners from all over Maryland jammed the church on University Parkway, Rabb gave up the responsibilities of his office in a ceremonial handing over of his diocesan crozier, or staff, to Bishop Eugene Taylor Sutton, Episcopal bishop of Maryland.

HAGERSTOWN -- Here in its geographic heart, members of the Episcopal Diocese of Maryland gathered yesterday to witness the ordination of the Rt. Rev. John Leslie Rabb as their bishop suffragan.With the field house of St. James School transformed into a cathedral and filled with hundreds of the faithful, Rabb received the symbols of his office of bishop: a Bible, a ring, a cross, the holy oil called chrism, the pointed cap known as a miter and the shepherd's staff.Rabb wore a cope, a ceremonial cape used by bishops, that he designed in hues of blue and green that recalled "The Canticle of the Sun," a poem by St. Francis of Assisi.

John L. Rabb, bishop suffragan of the Episcopal Diocese of Maryland for 12 years, is planning to step down on Jan. 1. "I am responding to what God is calling me to in a new season of ministry," Rabb, the second-highest-ranking Episcopal official in Maryland, told clergy and lay members of the diocese at the opening of their 226th convention Friday. "I will be doing a combination of teaching, continued work in ministry development, preaching in a different venue, my Franciscan studies and writing," Rabb said.

SAN FRANCISCO -- Free associate with REITs and you instantly think of the elite and grandiose world of real estate tycoons backed by Wall Street -- big-time operators who sit in mahogany boardrooms with gold-dipped chandeliers, pay cold cash for multimillion-dollar properties, and hop the company jet to visit their investments.All of that brings a chuckle to David Rabb, president of David Rabb Real Estate Investment Trust (REIT). His REIT is so tiny that it's barely known outside of a small circle of 200 investors, virtually all of whom Mr. Rabb knows by name.

Teaching as a rite of passage. That's the narrative that drives The First Year, a brilliant and moving little documentary that follows five new teachers through their first year in the Los Angeles public school system. It will leave you in awe at the dedication of some teachers and howling in anger at the insensitivity of some of the folks with whom they work. I say "little" because in the sea of huge, multi-part documentaries of which PBS seems so enamored, The First Year stands out like a small, perfectly sculpted and polished stone.
