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...

For struggling families with young children, the seemingly endless need for baby diapers can prove a real financial strain. Realizing the need, a local nonprofit group recently teamed up with a diaper company to donate more than 11,000 disposable diapers to an organization serving more than 75 social service groups in Anne Arundel County and the Eastern Shore. The Junior League of Annapolis collected the diapers through donations from its 400 members and by holding diaper drives outside local stores in November and December.

If you're a new parent, there will come a time when either you or your spouse will say these words: "Let's take the baby to a restaurant!" Now, to a normal, sane person, this statement is absurd. It's like saying: "Let's take a moose to the opera? But neither you nor your spouse will see anything inappropriate about the idea of taking your baby to a restaurant. This is because, as new parents, you are experiencing a magical period of wonder, joy and possibility that has made you really stupid.

They call me `Ross Perot,'" Snoop Dogg boasts. "You know why? You know why they call me `Ross Perot?' Because I got a whole lot of money." Dogg doesn't laugh at his own joke, but then he can afford not to. A gangsta renaissance man, the rapper/producer/actor/porn purveyor may stoke the flames of controversy, but everything he touches seems to turn to gold, and he's laughing all the way to the bank. His latest project, however, is downright benign: He plays Huggy Bear, the ultra-hip informant to detectives David Starsky (Ben Stiller)

Kids ask the darnedest things. They want to know the answers to seemingly unanswerable questions.They'll want to know how high grass will grow if nobody mows it. And what rocks are made of. And why the world is round. And why animals are playful when they're young and grouchy when they're old.One teacher at Manchester Elementary School is helping his students find the answers to these and other questions through an enrichment program called Inquiry Science."Children are natural scientists," said Charles Pearce, a fifth-grade teacher.

Regarding your Reuters report on Family Dollar stores, a little fact-checking and a more skeptical attitude surely could have produced a more convincing article ("Dollar stores count on poverty," Aug. 29). The report states that "Dollar stores offer their customers low prices by not necessarily the best value. "For example, Huggies diapers were selling this month in a Family Dollar store for 27 cents a diaper in an 80-diaper pack. "But at Wal-Mart, shoppers could pay 17 cents a diaper if they bought the larger 120-diaper pack.
