Pity the suburbanites. We want our deer and our subdivisions, too.From Annapolis to Germantown, residents are begging officialdom to spare the lives of the brown-eyed creatures that inhabit our woods, our parks, our golf courses.The white-tailed deer, it seems, has become suburbia's unofficial lawn ornament.Seeing them so close to our gas grills and in-ground pools tricks us into believing our sprawl is not so destructive, that we can be one with nature.We cannot.To look at the rapidly increasing numbers of vehicle accidents in Maryland that involve deer is to know that we are living a lie. In 1991, the state logged 1,600 deer kills; in 1996, Montgomery County alone had 1,800.

Weary as you must be by now of the hopefully hullabaloo, a post at Language Log by Mark Liberman, "The H-word,"   gives rise to some further observations. Professor Liberman demonstrates a salient fact about the disparagement of hopefully  as a sentence adverb. After a long slumber as an occasional usage, it awoke in the 1960s and had a vogue. That made it immediately suspicious to language mavenry, which despises such popular effloresces. You cannot, after all, hold yourself proudly aloof from the herd if you speak as the herd does.

An Ellicott City attorney has vowed to launch a letter-writing campaign to head off possible deer hunts in Columbia."I'm going to try my best to save our little deer," said William Wright, 53, who fought similar battles against public smoking in the 1970s.Wright, who said he's never been an active animal rights activist, was reacting to a published report this week that Howard officials may allow controlled deer hunts in Middle Patuxent Environmental Area -- a 630-acre county park between the Columbia villages of River Hill, Hickory Ridge and Harper's Choice.

On a rainy night in November 1970, an airplane crash took the lives of 75 people, including nearly every member of Marshall University's Thundering Herd football team. One year later, with a team composed almost exclusively of freshmen, the squad - renamed the Young Thundering Herd - pulled off one of the great victories in collegiate sports history. We Are Marshall is the story of that tragedy, that team and that victory. It's a story of grief, of moving past loss, of honoring the departed by not neglecting those who remain.

At first barely discernible through the early morning mist, they ran in a straight line toward the channel, hesitating only slightly when they splashed into the water just after 8 a.m. yesterday.

HUNTERS ARE now thinning deer herds in the 1,018-acre Middle Patuxent Environmental Area in Howard County. Faced with overgrazing that might have permanently altered the park's ecological balance, county officials had little choice but to allow a managed hunt to thin the herds.County officials hope to kill about 120 deer out of a herd estimated at more than 350. On the first three days this week, 50 were killed. Even organizers were surprised by the tally, an indication of the high degree of overpopulation.
