Hey, now we're talking! Sunday night's episode of "The Walking Dead" - "Internment" - really delivered some action and plot development. It also delivered some comedy gold, as King of Comedy Hershel held court while performing dental surgery. "I hereby declare we have Spaghetti Tuesday every Wednesday, first thing we need to acquire is some pusketti . " That genius line still has me going. Who is he? Steven Wright? Mitch Hedberg? That line was so brilliant cause it was packed with two jokes: first, Spaghetti Tuesday every Wednesday?

The scientific profession of dentistry was not born on Nov. 3, 1840, on Sharp Street between Lombard and Pratt Streets in Baltimore. It only seemed that way.Dentistry was a mechanical craft with no standards and sporadic competence among the 1,200 U.S. practitioners, but Dr. Horace Hayden had lectured on it at the University of Maryland medical school as early as 1821. An lecture again in 1837 led to a crusade to get the state medical school to teach dentistry, but it refused. Undaunted, he persuaded the General Assembly to charter an independent Baltimore College of Dental Surgery.

Mrs. James Steward. Hill St. Ellicott City.  "Wanted: Two good farm and garden hands $8.00 per week, good house. All year around employment. Apply to B.M.

While browsing through a New York antique store last year, Dr. Frank Heynick found a faded document that any devoted student of dental history might give his eye teeth for.It was a diploma from the world's first dental school, the Baltimore College of Dental Surgery. It was dated July 15, 1840, the year the college opened. And, Dr. Heynick soon discovered, it appeared to be eight months older than humankind's oldest earned Doctor of Dental Surgery degree, granted by the same school in March 1841.
