Sebelius, Duncan, & Hoyer encouraging indoctrination of college students on benefits of health care reform law

Matthew Hay Brown of the The Baltimore Sun reports that Rep. Steny Hoyer, House Minority Whip, sent a letter to colleges in his congressional district encouraging them to teach their students about how beneficial the new health care reform law is. Hoyer’s letter indicates that Secretary of Education Arne Duncan and HHS Secretary Kathleen Sebelius have also sent letters on this same subject.

The Sun report repeats the saw that the law will become more popular as time goes on and people learn more about it (Cue then-Speaker Nancy Pelosi’s statement about passing the bill so we can find out what’s in it.)

Phylicia Barnes cause of death determined, but not released


(BALTIMORE, MD) -As Maryland State Police and Baltimore Police Department homicide detectives
continue their investigation into the death of Phylicia Barnes, the Office of Chief Medical
Examiner has released her body to her family for burial.

The autopsy conducted by the Office of Chief Medical Examiner determined the manner of death to be homicide.
A cause of death was also determined, but police investigators are not releasing that information because it is an
important part of the ongoing investigation.  To release a cause of death at this time could jeopardize the investigation by
revealing information known only to the person or persons responsible for her death.  The cause of death will be made
public at an appropriate time in the future.

The investigation is active and ongoing.  No one has been charged in connection with the death of Phylicia Barnes.
Maryland State Police homicide investigators continue to work out of the Baltimore Police Homicide Unit, alongside
detectives there who have been working the Barnes case since her disappearance on December 28, 2010.
FBI special agents are also continuing to assist this task force with the investigation

Police continue to urge anyone with information regarding the murder of Phylicia Barnes to contact them immediately.
Persons with information may call the TIPS Line that has been established since Barnes disappeared at 1-855-223-0033.  Or, they can call the Maryland State Police duty officer at 410-653-4200.  Calls may be kept confidential

What did Kathy Klausmeier omit from her legislative wrapup?

Sen. Klausmeier’s 2011 Session Wrap Up is below.

One of the things she left out: her support of same sex marriage. I’m not making any comment on that matter now other than to say you can bet it will be something rarely mentioned in District 8, even if she supports it in votes in future sessions.
