Those familiar with my life story understand my emotional approach to educational opportunity - particularly where the story line ends in opportunity denied. Simply put, I got lucky at a tender age. Enough athletic and academic prowess, in addition to scholarship aid, gave me the opportunity to attend excellent schools. These institutions set me on a successful path; each afforded me unlimited opportunities and important relationships that I have taken advantage of throughout my life.

Miss Maryland, you did us proud. Sunday night in Las Vegas, 27-year-old Nana Meriwether, from Potomac, finished as the runner-up in the 2012 Miss USA pageant. The title went to Miss Rhode Island, 20-year-old Olivia Culpo. Clearly, Meriwether didn't lose because her resume was lacking. It's impressive enough that she graduated from Washington's prestigious Sidwell Friends School (where the alumni list includes the children of presidents Theodore Roosevelt, Nixon and Clinton, and where the Obama girls are currently enrolled)

In deciding to send their daughter Chelsea to an expensive private school in Washington, Bill and Hillary Clinton acknowledge urban public schools are in trouble. It's a fact of life in America today, one that isn't widely discussed in politics and the media, where the vast majority of practitioners already live in suburban districts (where public education is superior), can afford to escape to the suburbs when the school going gets rough or can afford private-school tuition. Among those choosing the private school route are the black mayors of Washington and Baltimore, Sharon Pratt Kelly and Kurt L. Schmoke, and most members of Congress.

This town isn't big enough for two Michael Phelpses. Baltimore still has its Olympic superstar, but it is losing the newspaper with the like-named CEO. And it is a loss. Of local color.

Now we know what the First Lady's pilgrimage through South Asia and its timing are about. On this quasi-state visit, Hillary Rodham Clinton is having a first-hand look at the governance of major countries, providing an insightful link to the president that no ambassador could convey. With two traditional societies governed by woman prime ministers, it is natural for "women's issues" to arise in discussions. Important issues they are.And we are sure these impressions will not be wasted on the First Lady's traveling companion.
