Ace, a youthful Labrador, bounds across his lawn, fielding tennis balls and hurrying them back to his owner. His tail wags. His coat is thick and shiny. He barks with enthusiasm. To the naked eye, Ace is a strapping example of dogdom. Who would guess that he's had work done? An eye job, in fact. Ace is one of thousands of dogs who've had plastic surgery. A little nip. A little tuck. Eye lifts. Nose jobs. Exactly the sorts of procedures people get. But unlike cosmetic surgery for humans, dogs and cats aren't doing it to look better at their high school reunion.

Just the other night, the local news reported two stabbings. In light of all the recent knee-jerk gun legislation, where is the outrage and legislation for knife control? Knives should be banned. Knife owners need to be licensed and finger printed - so that when someone stabs someone, as happens in Maryland on a regular basis, the police know whom to go after. There should be consistent and fair legislation for such crimes. If there have to be draconian gun laws here, then judging by the news there should also be equally strict knife control laws in Maryland.

An Arundel Middle School student was issued a juvenile citation Tuesday after two classmates told school officials that he threatened them with a 3-inch knife, one of two incidents at the Odenton school this week. Also this week, a teacher was videotaped screaming at a student while admonishing her in front of classmates Wednesday. The video was posted on Facebook, and the teacher has since been removed from her classroom and is on leave while school officials investigate. In the knife incident, Anne Arundel County police said in a news release that Arundel Middle's resource officer was told about 12:30 p.m. Tuesday that a 12-year-old male student had made threats with the knife to a 12-year-old boy and 11-year-old girl.
