He does magic, ventriloquism and comedy. And best of all, he educates while doing them. The Amazing Josini presents his lively and fun magic and puppet show at this summer's premier Kids' Stuff event Tuesday at Federal Hill Park. Encouraging safety, reading and positive self-esteem, the Amazing Josini teaches valuable lessons through his act. Helping out are his puppet friend Daisy and members of the audience. Kids' Stuff events run every Tuesday and Thursday (except July 4) through July 25. Events are geared to children ages 10 and under.

It has taken me almost 50 years to realize a very basic concept: I should be grateful for my body and not despise it. Yet there are times like the beginning of summer and swimsuit season where I struggle for rationality. My body has, after all, carried me around faithfully for almost half a century. It has fought off infections, borne me up through fatigue, stress and trials. It has brought four healthy boys into the world and nursed them with vital nutrition, and it has supported me as I faced the challenges of being a working mom. Like most women, I understand that hating my body isn't right.

Bill Blass, one of the first American designers to start his own label, recently launched his latest perfume, Amazing. Blass, 77, suffered a mild heart attack recently and announced that after 50 years in fashion, he will retire next year. Here he talks about his work and life.Q. Why retire?A. I really feel that after 50-odd years -- and believe me, odd -- 50 years of working that I want to do a book, and I want to do other things. I really want to spend some time in the country. And, God, I'm entitled.

Escorting players from the Negro League during the 1993 All-Star Game at Camden Yards was among her life's “most amazing experiences,” Mayor Stephanie Rawlings-Blake said Wednesday. And the possibility for Baltimore to again host the Midsummer Classic is an exciting proposition, she said. “I just remember the energy that we had in the city - besides the fact that, I think, it was probably the hottest week of the whole summer,” Rawlings-Blake said. “It was an incredible showcase of Baltimore.

Sometimes, as I'm kicking back and watching the 'The Amazing Race,' I can't help but think: Wow, this really is an amazing race. And not amazing in the sense that 'Amazing Animal Videos' is amazing, either. It's a cat watching television. Got it. But I mean, really, truly amazing. The show, if you've never seen it, pits teams of two against one another in a race around the globe. And they really race. One day they're in Iceland, then Sweden, then Senegal. Amazing. They're darting around, frantic and flustered, catching planes and trains and haggling with angry cab drivers.

ARE YOU SAVING enough to retire? Most of us don't have a clue. You hear amazing figures, like $1 million or more, and it probably depresses you.

How amazing! Marylanders are being asked to shoulder the $600 million price tag for the 15,000 slot machines we are told we need ("Plans to buy slot machines questioned," March 25). That's $40,000 each. More amazing still, the estimates of slots revenues has fallen in every accounting since the referendum in November 2008, and the cost keeps going higher and higher. At this rate, we are going to have to build racetracks inside the casinos to save Maryland's gambling industry! Aaron Meisner, Baltimore

Well that was disappointing. At least that's the way we All-Star season felt the outcome of the 11th leg of the All-Star season. The Afghanimals, cousins Leo Temory and Jamal Zadran, have been eliminated. They didn't do anything particularly wrong on this leg, which took teams from Spain to the United Kingdom, where they were faced with challenges in Liverpool, England and Wales. But they kept veering off course, often enough to fall behind the three other teams. Even a colossal and time-eating blunder by Brendon and Rachel in this leg's Detour wasn't enough to get the Afghanimals back in the game.

Just two questions about The Sun's latest editorial regarding Benghazi ( "The latest Benghazi attack," May 6). First, if the real attack (as opposed to your equivocating over the GOP's inquiry into the death of four Americans, a real classy posture incidentally), is passé, how come The Sun periodically goes after the George W. Bush administration for enhanced interrogation techniques? That was over 10 years ago and no one was killed. The terrorists waterboarded still get three meals a day and get to put their prayer rug down five times a day. The hypocrisy is unbelievable!

Episode 9 of the All-Star season took the five teams from Rome into Switzerland. You said you wanted more snowy scenery, right? And you pleaded for gondolas, Bernese Mountain Dogs and references to Wilhelm Tell. You got all of them in Episode 9, which turned out to be another non-elimination leg. That was very good news for the Country Singers, who reached this week's Pit Stop well after the other four teams did. This was the second such reprieve for Caroline and Jennifer, who at least had the good sense to acknowledge how lucky they were.

Margie and Luke had their fates sealed about 15 minutes into Episode 5, and there wasn't much suspense after that.  We knew it wasn't going to be a non-elimination leg because last week was. Almost the first 15 minutes of this episode was spent watching team make flight reservations, from Borneo to Sri Lanka. That's usually a sign that a team is going to make a choice they won't be able to recover from. Six of the eight remaining teams got seats on the only direct flight out of Kuala Lumpur, which left two teams -- Margie and Luke and Brendon and Rachel -- with a tough decision.
