Is there a cross-dresser in every man just dying to leap out and into some lacy outfit: Maybe so. The Elks Club members at the heart of Jordan Harrison's modest play "Act a Lady," set in a Midwestern town during those frustrated days of Prohibition, leap at the chance to perform in drag during a charity event. What happens next, on and off the stage, adds up to a wry theatrical evening, as confirmed by the local premiere of "Act a Lady," courtesy of Iron Crow Theatre Company.

I beg the reader's indulgence as I savor a memory of something that lasted for only about 10 minutes on a summer day 17 years ago - an encounter with a stranger on a bridge in Baltimore County. It was one of those remarkable moments in which something like the secret to happiness appears. That sounds grandiose, but I think you know what I mean about moments like that. They're strange, beautiful epiphanies. Something happens - in the blink of an eye, in an act of kindness, in the sound of music - that answers some question you've had about what it means not only to be human but to be happy about it. It was 1996, and I was having one of my blue days - depressed or overworked or bothered by something.

Robert J. Casper never saw being a quadriplegic as a handicap. To him, it was just something of a hindrance.At office parties, he zigged and zagged his wheelchair down the center of the "Soul Train"-style dance line -- with a few more moves and a lot more energy.Friends said he was always the first person in the office trying to get others to go out after work.On Thursday, Mr. Casper, 59, a lifelong Baltimore resident, died of heart failure at Greater Baltimore Medical Center."He taught all of us to recognize what disabled people can do and not what they can't do," said Sue Needle, a friend and former co-worker at the state Department of Human Resources.

Even after 40-plus years, Casper is still the friendliest ghost we know. And with treatment like this, it's not hard to see why.There's a lot of good news about "Casper," the latest high-tech effort from Steven Spielberg's Amblin Entertainment colossus. Kids should love it, parents may even enjoy it, and film buffs will be both impressed by its technical expertise and amused by the references to old movies sprinkled throughout.For one thing, Casper, unlike most of us, hasn't grown more cynical over the years.

There will be other terrorist attacks on America, and agriculture is among the attractive targets, a state authority warned farm marketing officials from 20 states, Canada and Mexico yesterday. "We will most likely get hit again, and it could be a hit on the agriculture community. It is the easiest to hit," Jacob Casper, coordinator of disaster services for the Maryland Department of Agriculture, told representatives attending the annual meeting of North American Agricultural Marketing Officials.

The revenge of Casper the cat has earned his owners $10,000.Now, a video of the cat's ferocious beating of a stuffed Doberman pinscher is fighting Sunday for a $100,000 grand prize from "America's Funniest Home Videos.""We used to have a Doberman that used to chase the cat, pounce on the cat and give the cat a hard time," said Casper's owner, Kathi Davis of Woodbine. "We'd give him [Casper] this stuffed Doberman, and he'd go crazy on it, attack it and take out his frustrations on it."The piece -- taped by Ms. Davis and her husband, Jim, in 1986 -- won its first round during the ABC-TV show that aired Sunday.

There is much strange beauty in the poverty and desperation captured by Sin Nombre, an evocative and impressive first feature from writer-director Cary Joji Fukunaga tracing both the journey north taken by so many from Mexico and Central America and the gang violence that stunts the lives of the many others who stay behind. The film begins with Casper (Edgar Flores), one of the countless teenagers absorbed into the brutal Mara Salvatrucha gang, looking out from his open doorway into an ethereal scene: Fallen leaves blanket the dirt path to his shack of a home, sunlight has turned them golden, trees form a canopy of calm above.

As rescue workers saw during Hurricane Katrina, the bond between people and their pets can be a powerful one. In many cases, people refused to be rescued from their homes and taken out of harm's way if it meant leaving their cat, dog or herd of farm animals behind. Avoiding that scenario in the future was the impetus behind federal legislation signed this month by President Bush requiring states to establish plans for the evacuation of pets and farm animals as part of their emergency response procedures.

Flipping through the local real-estate advertisements one day, Heather came across a photo of a rowhouse for sale in Rodgers Forge.

CANTON, Ohio - This was the first time in 37 years that the Pro Football Hall of Fame induction ceremonies had taken place inside Fawcett Stadium rather than on the steps of the Hall. The stadium and the Hall are only a few feet apart. There is now no separation, however, between the bronzed likenesses and football greatness of Dave Casper, George Allen, John Stallworth, Dan Hampton, Jim Kelly and the other 211 Hall of Fame inductees. That group of five had their careers and lives celebrated here yesterday on a hot, sunny day before more than 15,000 fans.

JERRY CASPER, moving ever so gingerly on crutches, his right ankle elaborately bandaged, was clearly at a low point last summer when he told an acquaintance during a chance meeting in a Columbia physical therapy office: "If I knew then what I know now, I think I would have had it amputated." Casper didn't have his severely damaged lower leg and foot removed, however, and the fact that he didn't makes the Columbia resident's continuing medical odyssey more compelling. But he told the same acquaintance this week that he has since done a lot of Internet research about amputation and prosthetics, and if the day ever arrives ... OK, enough.
