Susan Reimer 's column claiming that women should not be charged more than men for insurance because "that's how insurance works" is absurd ( "Splitting the health care tab with the guys," Nov. 11). That is not how insurance works. I totaled two cars within a month of each other, and my premiums skyrocketed - as they should have. I don't remember Ms. Reimer ever writing an article making the case that high-risk drivers shouldn't be charged higher premiums "because that's how insurance works.

As the city school district debates a new plan from Interim CEO Tisha Edwards to hold principals accountable for chronic absenteeism, many have inquired about how incoming CEO Gregory Thornton deals with attendance accountability in Milwaukee. The Sun received a detailed plan for how Thornton has tackled the issue. Here is what we learned from his team: Steps Thornton has taken to improve attendance include: •    A daily summary of attendance figures by school, region and the district; reviewed by Regional Superintendents daily and discussed weekly with the Superintendent •    Principals have developed attendance action plans •    Schools have attendance committees that are spearheaded by the principal and include representative staff and parents •    Regional Superintendents collaborate with district social workers and the regional administrative teams who work directly with school-based social workers on attendance issues •    Stronger emphasis on Positive Behavior and Intervention Supports (MPS has the nation's largest concentration of students participating in PBIS)

The man who avoids paying his restaurant tab by faking a seizure is back in prison, according to the office of Baltimore City State's Attorney Gregg L. Bernstein. Andrew Palmer, 46, has been convicted more than four dozen times, Bernstein's office said, mostly for a unique spin on the classic dine-and-dash: Palmer would eat at a restaurant, then fake a seizure, be taken to a nearby hospital, only to be released when medical personnel found nothing wrong with him. Meanwhile, the restaurant would be stuck with an unpaid bill.

This week, South Riverkeeper Diana Muller took 11 water samples along beaches south of Annapolis. All but one tested above safe swimming limits, prompting her to post the bacteria counts on Facebook with the caption: "I just received my bacteria results - PLEASE DO NOT SWIM in the SOUTH RIVER!

Maryland's school systems got a whopping $106 million in state construction money this election year, the largest sum in two decades, as the counties struggle to keep up with a burgeoning school-age population and to replace seriously outdated facilities. That state outlay contrasts sharply with an annual average of $70 million since 1986.The challenge will be to spend that precious windfall wisely -- it's still only half of what systems say they need -- and to make sure that these badly needed new schools are completed competently and on time.

BEFORE WE GET to our list of People to Watch in 1999, I have a confession to make about Dan Rather.Every time there's a national or international crisis that requires the networks to interrupt their broadcasts with a "Special Report," I switch to CBS and Dan Rather.I do this for one reason.Because every time I see that tight, eerie smile flash for no reason, every time I see those dark eyes narrow menacingly at a White House or overseas correspondent with whom he obviously disagrees, every time I watch that syncopated tap-tap-tapping of the pen in his hand, I honestly believe there's an excellent chance he'll go off the deep end.I'm serious.

In principle, the National Security Agency's vast data collection operation is troubling, but in the age of Google and Facebook, it feels like having just one more Big Brother in a growing family of Big Brothers. In response to the revelation that the NSA is scooping up metadata on every call placed on Verizon, the American Civil Liberties Union has filed a federal lawsuit against chief members of the Obama administration's national security team. The ACLU's deputy legal director, Jameel Jaffer, said: "This dragnet program is surely one of the largest surveillance efforts ever launched by a democratic government against its own citizens.
