Videotapes showing workers at a liberal advocacy organization dispensing tax advice to a couple posing as a pimp and a prostitute have sounded alarms among Maryland nonprofit groups, which acknowledge they could be vulnerable to similar tactics. "It's a general warning to everybody," said Peter Sabonis, chief counsel for Maryland Legal Aid. "It wouldn't surprise me if we've had enemies of our program come in here in all of our offices and try to show we're violating our congressional restrictions and using our money illegally."

The city's new homeless services director has a crackerjack resume: degrees from Yale, Princeton and Harvard Law School; stints in the foreign service in Pakistan and El Salvador; multiple fellowships. What Joseph Alexander Boston III doesn't have is experience working directly with homeless people. That, according to the man who hired him, only made Boston more qualified. "We need someone with a clear track record of being able to manage and problem-solve," said Otis Rolley, first deputy housing commissioner.

Ruling that the governor has broad authority to reduce state budget deficits, the Maryland Court of Appeals yesterday upheld the constitutionality of cuts in welfare and medical assistance programs ordered last year by Gov. William Donald Schaefer.The state's highest court said the Maryland Constitution gave the governor broad authority over budgetary matters.The court said that to reduce deficits, a 1939 law gave Maryland's chief executive specific power to reduce appropriations by as much as 25 percent in any program, except public schools, the legislature, the judiciary, and funds for interest payments and to retire the state debt.

Baltimore's homeless need help from city, not more persecution The city's disapproving response to Baltimore's ranking as one of the top 12 "meanest" cities for the treatment of homeless people further illustrates why our ranking was appropriate ("City's record on homeless criticized," March 5). Homelessness directly reflects a flawed economic, education and health care system. To criminalize homelessness is inhumane, especially as many homeless people have untreated, severe mental illnesses.

LOS ANGELES - Derek Fisher was among the first of the Los Angeles Lakers to emerge from yesterday's film session and walk onto the court at the Staples Center, where he and his teammates will play the Portland Trail Blazers tonight in Game 7 of the NBA's Western Conference finals. What went among the beleaguered Lakers behind closed doors? Did Lakers coach Phil Jackson give up his Zen approach for someone more along the lines of, say, Bob Knight? Did Shaquille O'Neal threaten bodily harm - or at least what he did to Portland's Scottie Pippen in Friday's 103-93defeat - to any guard that didn't get him the ball?
