Q: Dogs and cats are commonly perceived as showing affection to owners. Are other types of pets -- birds, hamsters, rabbits, snakes -- capable of such affection? A: That's a great question. The dictionary defines affection as “fond attachment, devotion or love,” which certainly implies an emotional component. We know that many animals we consider intelligent -- including dogs, cats, primates, elephants, marine mammals, horses -- certainly have and display what we'd call emotions.

It was planned to be the perfect day trip for a guess-I'm-retired New Yorker who thought he loved baseball and Italian food equally: take the bargain bus down to Baltimore, get the free birthday-month ticket in the upper deck, watch a meaningful game between two teams in playoff contention for two-and-a-half hours, and then take the free bus over to Little Italy where I would be confronted by the same daunting challenge I have every time I've been...

NEW YORK - It is scheduled to rain here throughout the day, and there's a 70 percent chance of rain when Thursday night's series finale against the New York Yankees is supposed to begin. That's throwing the locals into a frenzy because of the possibility that Yankees shortstop Derek Jeter's final home game could be rained out. If the game cannot be played Thursday, it likely wouldn't be made up if it's a meaningless game in the standings. The Orioles are still chasing the American League's best record - and home-field advantage throughout the postseason - but they're running out of games to catch up with the Los Angeles Angels.

She's sassy. And that's how Eddie Gaudet likes it. With Affection, trained by Gaudet at Bowie, earned her winter vacation with a convincing 1 3/4 -length victory in the $50,000 Japan Racing Association Handicap yesterday at Pimlico. The 3-year-old filly beat older females for her third win in eight races and her first stakes score. "She's not a big filly," Gaudet said. "That's why we're going to quit on her for the winter. I want her to get big and strong for next year. If she grows any, she might be a good one. She might overcome me."

HEMPSTEAD, N.Y. - A cluster of women in tight jeans and halter tops waited for a turn at the phone at the Crystal Night Club. They cooed and whispered into the receiver. They talked of longing and of dreams, of being lonely and desiring company. They spoke of love. And to the men listening, seated in small apartment rooms with two or three companions, far from wives and children, yearning for the soft touch that comes with affection, the bait doled out over the line was irresistible. Central American laborers, with little education and no English, and lacking valid immigration documents, they soon arrived at this club, or some 20 others grouped in downtown Hempstead, to be relieved of their weekly pay. The calls were not made by chance.

"The Object of My Affection" is a Planet New York movie -- set in New York, but with none of the grit, grime or collective psychic fatigue that characterize the real place.Planet New York movies -- most recently "As Good As It Gets" and Woody Allen's recent oeuvre -- depict the city's poshest precincts, where even the most modest apartments are deliciously appointed, where names like Mailer and Styron and Pavarotti are dropped with impunity, where the Hamptons are visited at least once, and where, if someone is casually reading a magazine, it will surely be the New Yorker.

Would you give a friend or family member an item of used clothing as a Christmas gift? I put this question to two of my colleagues. They both saw it as a no-brainer. "Sure," said one. "My mom and I do it all the time. " "No way," said the other. "That's really tacky. " Aha, I thought. Here's work for an ethicist with psychoanalytic tendencies. So, is there anything wrong with secondhand gifts? The question is timely, given the state of the economy. And the argument for giving used items as gifts is obvious.

The Beatles may have sang that all you need is love, but when it comes to disobedient and dangerous mutts, Cesar Millan firmly yet calmly disagrees. "America loves dogs - like no other country in the world. They throw birthday parties for dogs," says Millan, who will present a dog-behavior seminar tomorrow afternoon at the Hippodrome Theatre. "Teaching America affection for a dog is not what I do. What I do teach is exercise, discipline and affection." If you go Cesar Millan will speak at 2 p.m. tomorrow at the Hippodrome Theatre, 12 N. Eutaw St. Call 410-837-7400 or go to france-merrickpac.

Perhaps Buck Showalter protests too much, and for once we're not talking about video replay here. Showalter looked at the big crowd of Cincinnati Reds stretching in front of the visitors dugout at Camden Yards on Wednesday and - for the umpteenth time - made his case against the unrestricted 40-man roster limit in September. "It's just a different dynamic," he said. "It's like we're playing a whole different game now. " Of course, for those who have watched for the past three years as the Orioles found creative ways to stretch their 25-man roster to the point where it sometimes looked like it contained 40 players, this might seem like a strange complaint.

Water restrictions remain in place at the Hanover Square Apartments in Otterbein, where one resident was diagnosed with Legionnaires' disease in mid-July, according to the city's Health Department. The July 18 case is the only one associated with the 1 West Conway Street tower, where the city is monitoring efforts to test and clear the water, said Health Department spokesman Michael Schwartzberg. He said he did not have more information about the patient's status. Legionnaires' disease, a type of pneumonia, spreads through the inhalation of tiny droplets of contaminated water.

A leak on a natural gas line forced the closure Friday afternoon of BWI Thurgood Marshall Airport's parking lot for people waiting to pick up arriving fliers. The airport's fire department responded to the so-called "cell phone lot" just before 3 p.m., and determined a leak along a Baltimore Gas & Electric Co. line, said Jonathan Dean, an airport spokesman. The leak presented "no real hazard to the public or travelers" at the airport, but the lot was closed as BGE crews worked to repair the line, Dean said.

Under increasing legal and political pressure, the Obama administration issued a new rule Friday designed to ensure that female employees have access to birth control while accommodating religious employers that object to covering it through their health insurance plans. But the latest attempt at a compromise — which comes in response to recent U.S. Supreme Court decisions — was quickly criticized by religious groups, including the Catonsville-based Little Sisters of the Poor, for not fully addressing their concerns.

I could not agree more with your editorial regarding the minor privilege tax ( "Minor privilege, major disincentive," Aug. 13). While the article was business focused, this absurd tax also hits the residential property owners in the city. A couple of months after purchasing a home in Baltimore City in 2012, I received a bill for a minor privilege tax. Being new to the city, I had no idea what this tax was. After a couple of phone calls I found out that I will be charged a $193.25 yearly fee for having a second floor bay window on my house and for a 5-inch piece of conduit that runs under the sidewalk in front of my house.

Baseball commissioner Bud Selig contends that the Mid-Atlantic Sports Network television rights dispute between the Orioles and the Washington Nationals can be resolved before he leaves office in January and that both Baltimore and Washington, D.C., are viable candidates to host an All-Star Game in the near future. Perhaps more important for Orioles fans, Selig said the two issues are not connected - that there is no consideration in holding the All-Star Game hostage from either franchise if the MASN legal entanglement continues.

A Calvert County circuit judge has overturned the Southern Maryland county's decision to exempt the proposed Cove Point liquefied natural gas export facility from local zoning regulations. It's not clear, however, whether the decision affects plans for the $3.4 billion project. Judge James P. Salmon declared that Calvert County acted illegally in freeing Cove Point, now the site of a liquefied natural gas import terminal, from having to comply with the county's zoning ordinance. In doing so, the judge said, county officials violated Maryland's constitution by treating Dominion, the Virginia-based energy company that owns the site, differently from other property owners.

I would like to clarify some issues around the Hobby Lobby case that have been misrepresented in the extreme. Under the ruling it may be true that an employer may opt not to provide coverage for four specific types of birth control. But the employer has no control over what doctor you see or what you discuss, and doctor visits are covered by insurance regardless of what an employer says. All of these drugs are available at all pharmacies. You may have to pay full price for it as it will not be an option for co-pay.
