WASHINGTON -- Instead of airing a half-hour campaign commercial tonight that offers his austere solutions to the country's economic woes, independent presidential candidate Ross Perot is rebroadcasting an ad that aired earlier this week and merely outlines the nation's problems.The second ad, which has already been produced and is expected to showcase Mr. Perot's painful plan for steep tax hikes and deep spending cuts, will be aired some time next week, campaign officials said yesterday."Since the program aired on Tuesday night our offices around the country have been overwhelmed with calls from people who wanted to see it but were not able to do so," the Texas billionaire said in a statement yesterday.

In the wake of the recent spate of shootings at U.S. schools, a Wisconsin state legislator has proposed a novel solution: Let's arm the teachers. You can hardly be surprised at Republican Rep. Frank G. Lasee's interest in this issue: One of those shootings took place in his state. There, on Oct. 1, a 15-year-old boy shot and killed Weston High School Principal John Klang. Still, Mr. Lasee's proposed solution has raised eyebrows. As others debate solutions ranging from heightened security to increased vigilance against bullying, Mr. Lasee has cut through the namby and the pamby.

In the coming weeks, Maryland's Department of Public Safety and Correctional Services will seek the technology industry's solutions to the very real threat that illegal cell phones pose to the state's prison system. However, from my understanding, Secretary Gary D. Maynard will focus exclusively on a single technology solution — cell phone blocking — rather than leaving the door open to all the possible technologies. Inmates' cell phone access is not a new problem to Maryland, but in the past few years, the problem has exploded.
