WHY HAS Baltimore County had so many sewage spills recently? Good question. Most of the county's 3,000 miles of pipes are relatively new, dating back to the 1960s. Unlike the cash-strapped city, the county also has money. It spends about $25 million each year to maintain the underground pipe network and 106 pumping stations that convey 100 million gallons of goo each day. That's why the recent rash of seemingly unconnected spills seems to confound officials there - and in Anne Arundel and several other counties that have had their share of spills as well.

The “stomach flu” appears to be going around and state health officials are warning residents to take some precautions. The officials say these cases in recent weeks are not really the flu. They are cases of viral gastroenteritis, which gives sufferers inflammation of the stomach and intestines. The inflammation causes diarrhea, vomiting and stomach pain among other symptoms. Norovirus, which many people associate with mass illnesses on cruise ships, is the most common cause, according to the state Department of Health and Mental Hygiene.

The fainting spell that put President Bush on the floor yesterday was probably caused by a common intestinal bug, although fatigue and jet lag may have heightened his vulnerability to the illness, doctors said.Specialists in digestive illnesses agreed that Mr. Bush's unexpected collapse probably had nothing to do with the overactive thyroid that produced an irregular heartbeat last year, or with the sleep medication Halcion that the president took the night before his attack.From media accounts, doctors surmised that the president was overcome by an intestinal virus that is "going around" this winter, usually producing symptoms of nausea and diarrhea.
