WASHINGTON -- It's a good thing that Adelaide Johnson chose a 13-ton block of marble for her suffragist statue. Anything lighter would have cracked by now under the pressure of so much symbolism.In 1920, the sculptor's tribute to Lucretia Mott, Elizabeth Cady Stanton and Susan B. Anthony was carved against a rough-hewn background to represent the unfinished nature of the women's rights struggle. As Johnson explained at the time: Women's work is never done. How right she was.Congress refused to accept this gift until the National Woman's Party president, Alice Paul, had the statue literally dragged by mules to the Capitol steps.

A 47-year-old Baltimore man has been charged with attempted first-degree murder in the near drowning of his 3-month-old son in a bathtub at the family's Mondawmin Avenue home last week, according to Baltimore Police. Augustus Parker, who has previously served time in prison for child abuse, allegedly admitted to police that he intentionally held his son, Montez Parker, under water in the tub until the "bubbles began to stop" and the boy appeared unconscious, according to a police report.

Just in time for Halloween, the Theatre Project is presenting a creep show with a graveyard, a mobile corpse, a bathtub, a trapeze . . .Wait a minute. A bathtub? A trapeze?Yes, this is "Don't Drop Grandma," the latest work to come to Baltimore from Touchstone Theatre of Bethlehem, Pa. In keeping with Touchstone's approach in several of its past pieces, this one -- created by the ensemble in collaboration with writer Jennie Gilrain and director Augustine Ripa -- brings a refreshingly humorous, childlike sensibility to a serious subject.

On those rare Saturdays I am feeling ambitious, I attempt to fix the bathtub pop-up drain, or more accurately, the bathtub drain that formerly popped up. Now instead of rising to the occasion, the drain stopper sits there ajar, like a guy who has fallen asleep with his mouth half-open. It is not a pretty sight. Even in its slack-jaw state, the drain still works. It services a combination shower and bathtub. While showering I have noticed that the cockeyed-stopper may be unsightly, but it doesn't get in the way of water swirling down the drain.

Q: My stepdaughter has just moved in with her college roommate, and I'd like to turn her bedroom into a play area for our sons, 11 and 9. I plan to use the computer and a TV for their video games, plus a desk, table and chairs, so they can use the room for everything. What am I missing?A: Do what professional interior designers do: Ask your "clients," your sons. If they help plan their own space, it will come closest to meeting their needs. (You have to be diplomatic, however. My own son once petitioned to paint his room solid black!

Jury selection could begin as early as Wednesday in the triple murder trial of Mark Castillo, who police say confessed to drowning his three young children in a Baltimore hotel bathtub in March 2008 before unsuccessfully attempting suicide. Castillo's attorneys argued Tuesday to suppress the condemning statements he made to detectives shortly after the incident, though several delays prevented a ruling. The hearing is expected to continue Wednesday morning in Baltimore Circuit Court. Once the motions are resolved, the trial can begin.

A Montgomery County man accused of drowning his children in a bathtub at an Inner Harbor hotel is competent to stand trial, dismiss his attorneys and plead guilty to the killings, a Baltimore Circuit judge ruled yesterday. Mark Castillo, who is charged with three counts of first-degree murder, requested and was granted time to decide what he wants to do. Judge Gale E. Rasin, however, said that she was reserving judgment on whether she would allow Castillo to represent himself at a trial, should he choose to plead not guilty.

Say "Poconos" and for many people, the word "gaudy" almost automatically comes to mind. It is, after all, the place where Morris Wilkins invented and installed the world's first heart-shaped tub in 1963. The Pennsylvania resort area is also a place known as the "honeymoon capital of the world," where champagne glass-shaped spas are sometimes the prelude -- or finale, depending on your inclination -- to a night of romance. And for some odd reason, it's a place that seems to bring to mind sappy family-themed resorts that offer never-ending games of pinochle and shuffleboard.

Little things can cause great aggravation. I reacquainted myself with this truism recently as I wrestled with a bathtub's faulty pop-up drain. I lost this battle but did learn some new words, such as "lift-rod assembly." In its youth, this tub drain stopper could jump. At the flick of a lever the stopper would pop up to let water run out of the tub, or close to let the tub fill with water. But over time it lost its "ups." Maybe it was age; maybe someone taking a shower -- the tub doubles as a shower -- had stepped on it. But lately flicking the control lever was like calling your cable or satellite provider: Nothing happened.

The man who befriended MenckenIn his article on "Mencken's Fakery" (Other Voices, Jan. 31), Carl Bode referred to Robert McHugh, who arranged the publication of "The Bathtub Hoax and Other Blasts & Bravos," as a Chicago newspaper man. Although McHugh might consider that to be an accolade, he never was a Chicago newspaper man. However, he was an Iowa newspaperman, a South Carolina newspaperman, a Mississippi newspaperman and a Baltimore newsman.It was while with the Associated Press in Baltimore that McHugh met and became a friend of Henry Mencken in his later years.

During those frightening first days in the hospital, Sorrel King came to trust the doctors and nurses looking after her 18-month- old daughter. Hooked up to tubes and machines, sterile dressings covering her burns, Josie looked nothing like the little girl who danced through life wearing ladybug shoes and a gap-toothed grin. The medical team at the Johns Hopkins Children's Center constantly monitored Josie's mixture of drugs, watched for signs of infection, performed skin grafts to repair the damage from her bathtub accident.

Before even reaching the front door of 4 Ballyhean Court, the Mays Chapel townhouse with the cream-colored brick and blue trim, a visitor is greeted by a plastic tricycle, a miniature John Deere tractor, an excavator and a Tonka scoop. It looks like a million other suburban Maryland residences that happen to house a 3 1/2 -year-old boy -- except for the two cars parked out front, engines running to keep the state troopers warm. Inside, Kendel Ehrlich is five days shy of becoming Maryland's first lady.
