MARYLAND: MESS-HALL PRAYERS The American Civil Liberties Union is urging the United States Naval Academy to review its lunchtime prayer routine after a court this week found Virginia Military Institute's dinner prayer to be unconstitutional. A spokeswoman for the Naval Academy declined to comment. A three-judge panel of the United States Court of Appeals for the Fourth Circuit, in Richmond, Va., found that V.M.I.'s grace ritual violated the First Amendment because of a "coercive atmosphere" that gave students little real choice about participating. Another military institute, the Citadel of Charleston, S.C., said it was examining its mess-hall prayers in light of the ruling. (AP)
