Sandwiched between knots of chatting teen-agers, Hereford High School teacher Hank McGraw is on the lookout for rambunctious behavior and PDAs -- "public displays of affection." "Let's move it," he calls to two students who linger near an open locker. Hall duty is something of a novelty to McGraw. So is teaching students the finer points of literary criticism. But he is doing both after spending 27 years as a top administrator for Baltimore County public schools. McGraw and 10 other administrators returned to the classroom this year because of a revision in state law that allows them to work full time and collect their school pensions.

Good morning--Orioles fans-- Although the death of Hank Bauer is sad, it sure does bring back great memories of 1966.

"Straight Man," by Richard Russo. Random House. 432 pages. $25.Richard Russo's novels are the literary equivalent of comfort food -- the macaroni-and-cheese and meatloaf of fiction. His books are never too spicy or challenging, and their predictability is leavened with enough humor to make them familiar but not too boring. In his first three novels, "Mohawk," "The Risk Pool" and "Nobody's Fool," Russo thoroughly mined the thematic veins of drunks, disappointing fathers, and constrained lives of quiet desperation in small-town upstate New York.

A loud noise broke the stillness of the night. Crack! It was louder than one hundred firecrackers on the Fourth of July. CRACK! I heard it again, this time louder than before. It was coming from Miller's cave. At the first hint of dawn, I headed toward that sound.There in the corner of the cave, where I'd left it, was the egg. And pushing its way out, like I've seen so many baby chicks do, was a tiny dragon poking through that shell with its snout.It was love at first sight."Hey there, li'l feller, welcome to the world," I sang, soft and low. As I stroked his nose, a sweet little purring whimper came from him. As I touched skin to scale, I knew I was his girl and he was my dragon.
