Richard M. Nixon brought to the language of American politics biting turns of phrase that often helped him win elections but often came back to torment and defeat him. A resolute anti-Communist, he won a seat in the U.S. Senate in 1950 by labeling his opponent, Democratic Congresswoman Helen Gahagan Douglas, "the Pink Lady."That campaign and other early chapters of his life brought him a label of his own: "Tricky Dick."A question asked about him in a campaign ad -- "Would you buy a used car from this man?"

A rabid cat bit a person at Pocomoke River State Park this week and health authorities are encouraging anyone who had contact with the animal to contact them. The Worcester County Health Department said an adult was bitten by the cat at the Milburn Landing campground area in the Snow Hill park on Monday. The cat was found, euthanized and sent for rabies testing, which was later confirmed by a state lab, health officials said. The cat was a medium adult male, dark gray in color with white under its chin and belly and four white feet.

Q. My 22-month old daughter hits and bites me when I tell her no or ask her to do something. She also tries to bite the rug or whatever is near her. When she is trying to bite or hit, she growls like a dog. I have tried to stop her by telling her it is not nice and that it hurts. I have also used timeouts. These have not worked. Do you have any suggestions? A. Most toddlers go through phases of biting and hitting when they are frustrated or angry. The more you react, the more you may be reinforcing her behavior.

Halfway through the eight-stop Savor Gettysburg Food Tour, I was slowing down. I had already eaten chicken fajitas and pork carnitas at El Costeno, followed by gooey macaroni and cheese with big lumps of crab meat at One Lincoln. I had sampled more than a few varieties of hard cider and red wine at the retail shop of Hauser Estate Winery. Now, seated at the rustic wooden bar on the second floor of the Garryowen Irish Pub, I looked warily at the dish in front of me, laden with yet more food: a dollop of creamy mashed potatoes topped with a single sausage slice and slivers of caramelized onion; a six-bite serving of shepherd's pie; and a tiny breakfast sandwich, consisting of a quarter-sized sweet biscuit, topped with a round of ham and a quail's egg. "Fun fact," said our tour guide, Lori Korczyk, in the same cheerful tone she had employed all morning, whether she was telling us about the excellent local restaurants or the horrific Civil War battle that had made thw town famous.

Q: What can I do to prevent my 2 1/2 -year-old from biting her nails?A: Two-and-a-half strikes us as an early age for a full-blown nail-biting habit. While preschoolers may begin to bite their nails, it is most often a problem of school-aged children and adults.If your daughter is already biting her nails, she may be copying someone she admires. Can you get that person to stop? Look for patterns in her biting, anticipate the most likely times and, without telling her not to bite her nails, keep her hands busy with other, more interesting things.

How's this for a recruiting pitch? Being bitten. Paper wasps in Costa Rica bite their nest mates to recruit them for foraging duties, a University of Washington researcher says. Sean O'Donnell, a psychology professor and animal behaviorist, anesthetized and marked hundreds of wasps in Costa Rica by tapping on their nests and capturing them in bags of ether. He found that when he removed active foragers from four colonies of Polybia occidentalis, wasps that had never left the nest were bitten six times more frequently than their foraging counterparts.

Lawyers for a Baltimore police officer said he was legally authorized to kill a shar-pei in June and was acting to protect the unborn child of a woman the dog had bitten — an argument the bite victim said she was shocked to hear. Jeffrey Bolger, a 22-year veteran, is charged with slitting the throat of the dog, named Nala. Bolger is alleged to have killed the dog even though it already had been brought under control with a dog pole. Bolger appeared in court Thursday, and his attorney entered a not-guilty plea on his behalf to two counts of animal mutilation, one of animal cruelty and one of misconduct in office.

State health officials reported Thursday they have confirmed the first case of West Nile Virus in Maryland for the year. The infected adult lives in the suburbs of Washington. The virus has also been detected in a Washington-area horse, and in special mosquito traps placed in Harford, Montgomery, Prince George's and Talbot counties. Officials at the state Department of Health and Mental Hygiene said the human case was not unexpected - there were 16 reported cases last year. But they reminded people to take precautions by avoiding areas where mosquitoes are prevalent, covering their skin with clothes and hats, using insect repellent, and if possible, avoiding outdoor activities during mosquitoes' most active times at dusk and dawn.

A hearing examiner recommended the Anne Arundel County school board uphold last year's two-day suspension of a second-grader who was accused of nibbling a pastry into the shape of a gun. But an attorney for the family of Joshua Welch said if the county board agrees, he's prepared to take the matter to the state Board of Education. "We're going to do whatever we can to clear this little kid's name and take the brand off his record," attorney Robin Ficker said. Hearing examiner Andrew Nussbaum, who was brought in by the school system to hear the case, sided with school officials in the sanctioning of Welch, then a 7-year-old Park Elementary School student whose suspension in March 2013 drew national media coverage and debate.

Just hours after the General Assembly wrapped up its 90-day session, Gov. Martin O'Malley signed legislation Tuesday that will expand pre-kindergarten education and lift the "inherently dangerous" legal stigma from the pit bulls of Maryland. O'Malley, flanked by House Speaker Michael E. Busch and Senate President Thomas V. Mike Miller, put his pen to a bill that will fund pre-K for an additional 1,600 low-income youngsters at a cost of $4.3 million. By highlighting the pre-K bill, O'Malley took advantage of an opportunity to showcase the work of Lt. Gov. Anthony G. Brown, the governor's choice to succeed him when he leaves office in January.

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.
