Mixed news for Maryland's LGBT high schoolers looking to attend one of the nation's most LGBT-friendly colleges: They'll have to head out of state. As part of its annual rankings book, Princeton Review rated the 20 most LGBT-friendly colleges and universities, and no Maryland schools made the cut. On the flipside, no Maryland schools appeared on Princeton Review's "LGBT-Unfriendly" list (though Catholic University in neighboring D.C. did). So it's not as if the state's public and private institutions aren't accepting of LGBT students.

WELLESLEY, Mass. -- It's called the "Hillary factor" and it is alive and well at Wellesley College.Although she graduated nearly 24 years ago, Hillary Rodham Clinton continues to have a major impact on her alma mater, which is now happily reaping the benefits of its close association with the new first lady.This "Hillary factor" has taken many forms, from the intangible feel-good mood on campus to a significant increase in applicants to the small women's school.Administrators, faculty, students and alumnae also believe the first lady's position and publicity -- be it good or bad -- will continue to elevate the reputation of Wellesley College and add an overall positive sheen to its image for at least the next four years.

Bob and Suzie Thieblot know how to throw a holiday party. They have been inviting crowds of merrymakers into their home for 47 years for a feast that consumes cases of wine, 25 pounds of cheese, plates of smoked turkey and seafood, and hundreds of homemade sugar cookies. For a time, they put on two holiday events: one for their neighbors, one for members of Bob's law firm, Thieblot Ryan. As a neighbor who over the years has benefited from the Thieblots' hospitality, I was curious how they engineered this large party.

When Wellesley College professor Tony Martin delivered a lecture at Walbrook High School last week on Jewish involvement in the slave trade, the furor raised by his talk had far more to do with the question of who will assume leadership of the post-civil rights movement than with the search for historical truth.In wake of the uproar surrounding a virulently anti-Semitic speech given last year by former Nation of Islam spokesman Khallid Muhammad, and subsequent calls by Jewish organizations for mainstream black leaders to repudiate ties with Nation of Islam leader Minister Louis Farrakhan, the Martin lecture tapped into primal passions among both blacks and Jews.
