State health officials confirmed Thursday this season's first flu case. An Eastern Shore adult was hospitalized with laboratory-confirmed influenza and later released, according to the state Department of Health and Mental Hygiene. The strain was A (H3), which was included in this year's flu vaccine, though officials did not say if the person was vaccinated. The first case last year was reported a week earlier, on Oct. 3. The flu season generally lasts until spring and most cases are not lab-confirmed or even reported because many people do not seek medical care.

WASHINGTON -- During a news conference yesterday after his surprise visit to Iraq, President Bush engaged in a little repartee with reporters, as he often does. When he called on Peter Wallsten of the Los Angeles Times, he commented on the reporter's sunglasses. "Are you going to ask that question with shades on?" the president asked. When Wallsten offered to take them off, Bush said, "I'm interested in the shade look, seriously" and noted that "there's no sun." Wallsten later told another reporter that he suffers from macular degeneration, has lost most of his central vision and needs the glasses for protection from glare.

Craver's article in the Harford County Sun, Oct. 27, "Girl with multiple personalities seeks to testify," regarding the postponement of a court case, I have a few comments. I am the court reporter in that case.I found Craver's need to mention the reason for my having to leave that day irrelevant to his story. In doing so, he was thoughtless and cruel.In ordinary living, people do experience a need for personal leave at times.

Onshore winds combined with higher than normal tides were expected to cause "minor shoreline inundation" in low-lying areas.

It actually doesn't do much good to head up an article about payments to doctors by telling readers that a doctor invented a great new device and the company sent him a check for royalties ( "Payments to doctors from drug companies, device makers revealed," Oct. 4). What would have been helpful is if your reporter had focused on whether the payments were justified instead of solely on the number of dollars. What's news is when device companies send kickbacks to doctors who didn't invent a device but merely used it rather than one from a competing company.
