You might know and love Flannery O'Connor as the legendary author of short fiction. (She's this humble correspondent's favorite short story writer -- mainly because could take the mundane motions of southern life and skew them into something dark and twisted.)   But did you know that O'Connor also drew weird, counter-culture cartoons?  Apparently, before she forever our consciousness with "A Good Man is Hard to Find," O'Connor was seriously pursuing a career as a cartoonist.

PHILADELPHIA -- She felt this vague yearning to do something, to go somewhere. She was nearing 40. She felt something pulling at her, like some invisible, rambunctious, full-of-run dog on a leash.One day, she finally gave in to that tugging.L "I thought I'd find out where it wanted me to go," she said.And she never stopped running after it.She ran, she swam, she biked. She got good. World-class good. She'd have winning streaks that would go on for four, five, six years in a row. Yet you'd never know unless you asked, and even then you had to be persistent about it.Best of all, she spread the gospel.

Flannery: A Life of Flannery O'Connor By Brad Gooch Little, Brown / 416 pages / $30 Brad Gooch opens Flannery, his biography of Flannery O'Connor, with a lost moment: an account of how when O'Connor was 5, the Pathe newsreel company sent a cameraman to her home in Savannah, Ga., to film a chicken she had trained to walk backward. Such an image highlights O'Connor's lifelong fascination with birds, but most telling is that even at this age, she was elusive, standing just outside our grasp.

Kieran Flannery overpowered Friends' batters and St. Vincent Pallotti collected 13 hits, including seven for extra bases, in a 10-0 victory in five innings yesterday at Panther Park in Laurel. Flannery, a senior pitcher-catcher who was an All-Metro selection last season, pitched a two-hitter with 12 strikeouts (six in a row during one stretch) and walked two on 86 pitches for the Panthers. "I only throw a fastball and curveball," said Flannery (5-3), who also had two hits, including a triple, and an RBI. "My curveball was breaking well today, and I had some velocity on my fastball."

It's been years since I've worn a slip, but I remember the burden of keeping the lace-hemmed undergarment from showing beneath my itchy dress. Thank goodness those days are gone. Not only do I eschew the practice of slip-wearing, but apparently it's not a problem anymore if your slip is showing. In fact, if done right, it actually looks pretty cool.

Few tales of mixed marriage are as pure, extreme and enlightening, all at once, as the one of D.C.-based filmmaker Amy Flannery and her Senegalese husband, Papis Goudiaby - at least as chronicled in Flannery's first-person documentary Return to Belaye: A Rite of Passage. Screening tonight at Creative Alliance, the movie centers on Flannery's attempt to understand Goudiaby's ritual initiation into the male ranks of the Jola tribe. The picture illuminates the conflict between their world views with a wholeness and intimacy that lift it beyond routine documents of culture clash.
