"The only proper accessories for a man who wears bow ties are a big red nose and a beanie."Well, don't tell that to dedicated bow tie wearers."For business wear, bow ties give off several negative effects," said John T. Molloy, author of "Dress for Success" and guru of Wall Street executives, in a telephone interview from his New Jersey office. "You will not be taken seriously when wearing one. People don't trust a man in a bow. The only people who should wear them are outside commentators on society -- like clowns and reporters."

Bring on spring! It's the battle cry of parents everywhere, and not because of the weather or blooming daffodils. Sure, those are nice features of the season, but for parents used to seeing their children in T-shirts, jeans and a layer of grime, spring means something more. It signals the coming of Easter, and that means finally getting kids to trade in casual clothes for some dressy new duds. "New clothes signify a new beginning," says Rosemary Schneider, who with her mother owns Pied Piper, a children's clothing store in Cross Keys.

Watch out now, "Glee" is all grown up! Season four kicked off tonight and picked up right where we left off. First, we find ourselves inside the dance studio of NYADA (New York Academy of the Dramatic Arts) where Miss Rachel Berry is literally getting her butt kicked by a Miss Cassandra "Cassie" July, geniusly played by Kate Hudson. Cassie tears into Rachel within the first five minutes of the show. For the record, Ohio is worse than Iowa. It's like a turd that Michigan "can't quite pinch off," according to Cassie.

Writing about me for a profile in the Christian Science Monitor , Richard O'Mara quoted an unnamed colleague, "He dresses like a floorwalker. " Indeed, Tuesday through Friday, I'm at the paragraph factory in suit and tie. Only on Saturday, when a skeleton staff toils in the the echoing newsroom, do I go casual. The formality is a personal preference, from a lingering sense that a grown-up man ought to dress like a grownup.  There is no dress code for the newsroom; my fellow managers on the news desk, Steve Young and Phil Klinedinst, are determinedly casual.

PHILADELPHIA — Nolan Ryan once found himself on a game show with the legendary Satchel Paige. The two killed time talking baseball, and for Ryan it was another chapter in his hardball education. Paige asked Ryan at one point if he knew the best pitch in baseball, and the self-conscious Ryan didn't want to embarrass himself. He said he wasn't sure. "Bow tie," Paige told him. "I never heard of it, Satch," Ryan said. "What kind of pitch is that?" "That's when you throw a fastball right here," Paige answered, running his hand across his Adam's apple, and smiling wickedly.

Someone walked off with my dictionary. Rather, my dictionary walked off, not quite of its own accord, but on its own two feet, carrying the contents of a desk and sporting a black fedora. It was not an ordinary dictionary. It was not, to use one of the dictionary's least favorite cliches, your father's dictionary. It was your great-grandfather's dictionary, one partial to fountain pens, bow ties and - the most charming anachronism yet - the proper use of the English language. Baltimore Sun copy desk director John McIntyre was laid off this week after 23 years at the paper.

EMMITSBURG - Game No. 1,354 started just as the first one did nearly five decades ago for Mount St. Mary's basketball coach Jim Phelan. He shook some hands, offered some words of encouragement, tied his trademark bow tie in the locker room, then walked onto the court and kissed his wife, Dottie. Doing things any different just wouldn't have felt right. Phelan, 73, closed the book on his record-setting career in style last night as Mount St. Mary's defeated Central Connecticut State, 60-56.
