I am so glad that I had the chance to not only visit but also tour and get to know your wonderful city when I attended the U.S. Conference of Mayors meeting in Baltimore recently. As I said to Baltimore Mayor Stephanie Rawlings-Blake, the hospitality she extended to each and every mayor was only surpassed by that of the hospitality from the citizens of Baltimore. I am familiar with Baltimore's slogan of being "Charm City," and your residents more than lived up to it. And I am not just talking about the wonderful volunteers in their snappy blue shirts.

When I was leaving a dinner for the upcoming Celebration of Art at Cylburn Arboretum, I gave our hostess a little hug.  As I turned to leave, she said, "What I love about Kathy is she hugs like a New Englander. "  Translation: Not too tight, not a bear hug, just a quick hug at a distance. I still surprise myself when I hug. My sister and I were not raised by huggers. No parents could have adored their children more than our mother and father, but they did not hug. Ditto our grandparents.

All of us mourn the loss of Richard E. Hug, who had a profound impact on the civic and political life of our community (May 7). I thought it might be useful to single out the incredible impact that Dick had on the formative years of the University of Maryland Medical System beginning in 1984 and continuing to this day. In our privatization process beginning in 1984, Dick was a key member of the first board of directors and, equally important to...

The hug, long reserved for women, celebrating sports victories, and men from other countries, is muscling its way into everyday American Guydom. Stoic machismo still thrives, but at its heels yaps a touchier, Dr. Phil version of virility. Boundaries are eroding. Defenses are being scaled. The male hug is complicating everything. Men accustomed to the automatic and dependable hand clasp accompanied with a brisk up-and-down pump at dinner parties and college reunions, now must preface their greetings or goodbyes with intricate and split-second calculations based on body language, length of friendship and other factors.

Severn senior forward Leanne Hug, expected back early this week after missing two weeks with an ankle injury, will be a welcome sight as the Admirals prepare for the stretch run in defending their Interscholastic Athletic Association of Maryland B Conference crown. The Admirals (13-3, 6-2 in the league before Friday's game against Mount de Sales) have held their own in Hug's absence with different players taking turns stepping up. In Tuesday's 54-38 victory over St. Vincent Pallotti, the team got 14 points from junior guard Leah Cranmer and 10 rebounds and three blocks from senior center Caitlin Sheehan.

WASHINGTON -- Long before The Handshake, there was The Hug.Long before Yasser Arafat shook hands on the White House lawn and ushered in a new era of peace, he hugged and kissed Jesse Jackson and ushered in years of controversy.It became the hug that would not die. Nine years after it took place, Jackson's political enemies were still using it against him:"I am dismayed by his embrace of Arafat!" presidential candidate Al Gore said of Jackson during the New York primary in 1988.

WHENEVER I REACH for my son, in an attempt to administer a hug, he snakes out of my grasp and says sharply, "Off. Off."Whenever my daughter passes through the room, my husband reaches out to her, and, before he asks for yet another hug, she waves him away, saying, "Don't even think about it, Dad."Occasionally, my tender-hearted daughter will sigh and stand still for an embrace because she feels sorry for us, but my son will not endure a hug without a promise of cash."This isn't a petting zoo, you know," he says.

The obituary for Richard E. Hug (May 7) fell far short of honoring the legacy of a man who dedicated so many years to helping make Baltimore's non-profits better able to fulfill their missions. While the obit focused on Dick's political fundraising, it did not recognize the contributions he made to organizations such as Kennedy Krieger Institute, the National Aquarium in Baltimore , and the Baltimore Symphony Orchestra, to name but a few. He was a founding board member of the aquarium.

A forceful friend and an active advocate: These words describe my feelings about business and civic leader Richard E. Hug, whose hard work helped improve Maryland politics (May 7). As a volunteer participant in Bob Ehrlich's campaign for governor, I remember Dick Hug's 24/7 work in raising funds to help achieve election success. Citizen participation in a democracy means work, and that is the kind of volunteer participation and leadership that Mr. Hug gave. Thanks for his fine example.

Richard E. "Dick" Hug, a prominent businessman and prolific fundraiser for Republican candidates, died Saturday. He was 78. Mr. Hug was the finance chairman for three Maryland gubernatorial campaigns - Ellen R. Sauerbrey in 1998 and Robert L. Ehrlich Jr. in 2002 and 2006 - becoming known as the $6 million man after he raised that amount for Mrs. Sauerbrey's unsuccessful attempt to unseat Gov. Parris N. Glendening. He belonged to numerous civic boards and associations, including the University System of Maryland Board of Regents, and he served a stint as chairman of the Maryland Chamber of Commerce.

WWE "go home" shows always seem to be the most scrutinized. Often, pundits will cast away the past several weeks of television and focus most on the last Raw before a pay-per-view event, often with the same question -- did this show make me interested in buying the pay-per-view? While it's a fair question, perhaps its a skewed way to look at it when you are analyzing just one isolated show -- in particular, the closing moments of that show. If we were to do that for this past episode of Raw, then the closing segment did a very good job of creating interest and generating buys for the Elimination Chamber pay-per-view coming this Sunday.

Last day of vacation, and my largely ignored to-do list was foremost in my mind. I dropped my sons off at daycare and got some errands taken care of. I came home to attack the pile of laundry that never seems to diminish, took a glance at Facebook, and the world stopped. CNN had posted a story about the shooting at Sandy Hook Elementary School in Newtown, Conn., saying two adults had been killed. My horror multiplied when I saw the first comment on the post, saying that other outlets were reporting that 27 were dead.

Imagine a world where you feel the "likes" of your Facebook friends on your body? It's one vision of a future in wearable computing, in the form of a vest that inflates to squeeze your body with a "hug" each time someone "Likes" your Facebook status update, photo or video. The smarty-pants students at the MIT Media Lab, along with students at Harvard, designed a "wearable social media vest, according to the Boston.com. They call it the "Like-A-Hug" vest, and it was created for a class project.

KANSAS CITY, Mo. -- Gary Hug got a telescope for Christmas years ago, and now he and a friend are going down in astronomical history.Hug, 49, of Topeka, Kan., and Graham Bell, 64, of Maple Hill, Kan., have discovered a comet. The two amateur astronomers saw it early one morning two weeks ago while peering into a dark sky from the Far Point Observatory, 20 miles from Topeka."I've been looking for comets off and on for about 25 years," Hug said. "It was a terrific thrill."The find was announced by the International Astronomical Union, the world's leading astronomical organization, after professional astronomers confirmed it.The Hug-Bell comet, as it has been named, could well be the faintest comet ever discovered by an amateur, as Hug and Bell believe, said Brian Marsden, a member of the union and director of the Minor Planet Center at the Harvard/Smithsonian Center for Astrophysics in Cambridge, Mass.

A stay-at-home dad, offended by a television commercial that made dads look like dummies, has used social media — the same cudgel that forced Bank of America to back off last year from plans to hike fees — to get the makers of Huggies disposable diapers to take the ad off the air. But the real surprise might be that everybody was very polite about it. Chris Routly of Allentown, Pa., stays home to care for 3-year-old Tucker and 14-month-old Coltrane...
