Organizers of this weekend's Baltimore Running Festival can't say exactly how many families, spouses, friends and co-workers will be running among the more than 17,000 who have signed up for the eighth annual event. The pairs and groups are easy to spot running side by side and chatting throughout the races. And the number surely has grown every year as the number of people who participate has grown. But the organizers believe one family in particular may have the most members in one year's worth of races.

I can't remember the last time I saw a made-for-TV movie that wasted more talent or had a worse script than "These Old Broads," starring Shirley MacLaine, Elizabeth Taylor, Debbie Reynolds and Joan Collins. The script is by Carrie Fisher ("Postcards From the Edge") and Elaine Pope ("Seinfeld"). Ten minutes in, I started wondering if they wrote it on drugs. I'm not trying to make a joke; I just can't imagine how else two writers with decent track records could come up with such an inane story.

A browse through the March magazines yields a mine of ideas on dressing and professional advice.* The editors of Self suggest that you "Swap Till You Drop." For an entertaining evening, gather your friends and neighbors for a clothes swap. You provide some snacks, space for try-ons and a full-length mirror. They bring their unwanted clothes and accessories. Remember, one woman's cast-off may be another's treasure.

Generally speaking, most people do not like to question their own long-held beliefs. Usually this is because long-held beliefs are absorbed -- in a process that resembles psychological osmosis -- from our families and our culture.And, of course, once they have settled in, most of us don't like to stir up these comfortable assumptions.
