What a gem is our state capital. How can you not love a city where hoity-toity tradition is juxtaposed so beautifully with wackiness? A city that has the State House and Mayor Al Hopkins' singing. Sailboat races and Chick & Ruth's. J. Crew fashions in the shop windows and lawyers who want to wear shorts in court.In Annapolis, the nutty and the eccentric are always butting heads over what's "proper." For a while it was the appropriateness of the neon sign at Chick & Ruth's Delly along historic Main Street.

Ladies, please step away from the seamstress shears! Put those scissors down! This weekend, fashion observers want you all to know: Just because Jessica Simpson looks amazing in her Daisy Dukes short-shorts - in the Dukes of Hazzard movie opening today - that doesn't mean you should run right out and buy a pair, or hack up your favorite pair of hip-huggers trying to make some. Let's face facts. Simpson, 25, looks delectable in just about anything. Some of the rest of us? Eh. Not so much.

Just because he's recuperating from surgery doesn't mean County Executive C. A. Dutch Ruppersberger can stay home. He's got ribbon cuttings, White House grant ceremonies and graduations to attend.The only problem is, he doesn't own a pair of pants that will fit over the cast on his right leg. "I like to dress well, professional and all that. When you have a cast on and you can't get pants to fit, you still have to keep working," Ruppersberger says by car phone.It's a good thing he owns plenty of Bermuda shorts.

All it takes is a brief trip away from Baltimore to make a returning traveler realize how curiously attired this town is.The trip can be as short as an afternoon spent in Rockville or Philadelphia. The mileage doesn't make any difference.We dress in a way that is perceptively different. And that's not a bad idea at all.A few months ago a well intentioned relative of mine insisted that I visit Tyson's Corner, that clothing/mercantile crossroads of the Washington metro area. The confusing parking garages reminded me of Towson Town Center, but the similarity ended there.

Is anyone else tired of hearing about quality time with their children?My child is 27, and I'm not fussy about quality. I just enjoy time -- any kind of time -- with her.For years we talked about a mother-daughter getaway. But either she was studying for exams or I couldn't leave work. The whole idea was put on hold while we planned her wedding. Three years later, when she announced that she was going to be a mother, we realized it was now or never.We had several requirements for our getaway.

Spring approaches, threatening a bloom of predatoryfull-length mirrors and slacks that never fit off the rack. We are not particularly enthused.We are fortunately not disfigured, disabled, handicapped or qualified to participate in Little People support groups. We merely stand some inches beneath the average American male height of nearly 5-foot-10."Ha, ha, maybe 5-7 with a tail wind" is the usual answer to the direct height question.The question surfaces indirectly but incessantly this time of year, as the change of season turns us toward new clothes.
