Each week The Sun's John McIntyre presents a moderately obscure but evocative word with which you may not be acquainted, another brick to add to the wall of your working vocabulary. This week's word: SKINT You may find yourself momentarily embarrassed when the check arrives, or impecunious, penurious, or flat-out stony broke. But if you want a succinct term, you can use skint . It's British, a variant of skinned , and thus metaphorically redolent.

Tonight, ABC goes to the dogs, and the cats, with back-to-back specials on "Lassie" and lions. The fact that nothing else is of greater interest tonight suggests just how little interest you should have in TV this evening.* "Lassie Unleashed: 260 Dog Years in TV" (8 p.m.-9 p.m., Channel 13) -- Much as I loved "Lassie" as a kid, I can't drum up much enthusiasm for this latest anniversary special. It's true, though, that the black-and-white reruns still charm many kids, including mine. It's only when you're grown up that you notice how many of Lassie's whimpers are overdubbed.

Look, I am the last person in the world who would rip Lassie or speak unkindly about a dog that has accomplished so much over the years, rescued so many terrified children from swollen rapids, fought off so many enraged coyotes, etc.But my kids just dragged me to see the new "Lassie" movie. And it occurred to me that many of the things that bugged me about Lassie 30 years ago still bug me today.For instance, how did everyone around Lassie always know what she was saying when she barked?When I was a kid, it seemed like every "Lassie" episode on TV had a scene like this:Lassie: "Woof, woof!"

Amazing, the dog suit they got Mother Teresa to wear for this new "Lassie."Oh, all right. It's not Mother Teresa on all fours arfing and scampering behind a polyester collie mask for the camera -- but it could be. It certainly feels like it.This Lassie -- a purebred, eighth-generation descendant of the original -- does it all: She not only herds sheep, she heals families. She's also a business adviser, a coyote killer, a tour guide to the glories of the Shenandoah, a private detective and an Olympic swimmer.

Around town: Lots of famous faces were spotted in our fair city this past week, and two of them were at the Peabody Court Hotel. Jim Palmer fans called to say they were thrilled to be having dinner at a table near his in the elegant Peabody Conservatory, while other hotel guests were astonished to see Lassie walk into the hotel.Yep, Lassie, the movie dog, was a guest at the Peabody, along with his press agent and trainer. Lassie was in town for the American Kennel Club's National Invitational Dog Championship, and I hear he left a paw print photo for the hotel staff.

If you were upset when you found out that NBC was trying to force Johnny Carson into retirement so it could replace him with the younger, less expensive Jay Leno, brace yourself and hold on tight to your channel changers. Another television icon -- this one bigger than Carson, Cronkite or any of the rest -- is getting the same shabby treatment: Lassie.Yes, Lassie, the ever-faithful and indefatigable collie who's been rescuing less-intelligent humans in TV land since 1954, is in big trouble.

Two-year-olds are often obscured on the Maryland Million program. The babies are usually among the first to compete, and by the time darkness threatens, their elders have stolen the show.Not that good horses can't come from the $100,000 Maryland Lassie, for fillies, or the $100,000 Maryland Nursery, for colts and geldings. And when the sixth renewal of the Million is held Sunday at Pimlico Race Course, a future star could unveil itself.Trainer Ben Perkins Jr., who will send out North Carroll for owner Virginia Wright in the Nursery, yesterday summed up the feelings of owners and trainers involved in the 2-year-old races.

The dozens of children who spend their after-school hours at the Stanton Community Center in downtown Annapolis can find help with homework, or a game of basketball. They get a bag lunch and assistance from a friendly group of volunteers. But the most dominant presence in this historic city building is the man they call Mr. Lassie. Everybody refers to recreation leader George Belt as Lassie, a childhood nickname that has stuck for all his 60 years. (When he was born the third child in three years, his grandparents told his mother he should be called "Lastie," though she went on to have seven more children.

— Trainer John Salzman Jr. didn't set out to buy a horse for 25th annual Maryland Million Day, but this year, unlike some others, he has a filly that looks like the class of the Maryland Million Lassie field for two-year-olds and possibly one of the best horses on the card. But don't tell Salzman his horse looks like a synch to win. He'll look at you with dismay. "We might have a shot to win a race," he said after Wednesday's draw at Laurel Park where his filly was one of 111 horses who learned which gate they'll be starting from for Saturday's Maryland Million Day. "I'd never say we were a synch.

It's tough being a child star these days. Paparazzi stalk your every move, and the stresses of show business can eventually cause breakdowns. But it wasn't always like this. Back in the early days of television and movies, child stars such as Jon Provost, who played Timmy on the TV show Lassie, had open, friendly relationships with fans and the press. "When I would get fan mail when I was on Lassie, my mother would put our home address as the return address," Provost said, "Can you imagine doing that today?

Call him writer's best friend. Since Homer's time (and we don't mean Simpson), dogs have served, quietly and dependably, as literary kibble. There were dogs (with fairly meaty roles) in both The Iliad and The Odyssey. Dogs were mentioned 32 times (mostly negatively) in The Bible. There were dogs in the works of Chaucer and Shakespeare, Dickens and Dostoevsky. And for the past 100 years or so - whether we were getting wild with Jack London's Buck, traveling with John Steinbeck's Charley, making house calls with James Herriot to creatures great and small or coming home with Eric Knight's Lassie - dog-themed books have stayed loyally at the reader's side.

A merciful break in the heat made the weather glorious Sunday for this year's Artscape Festival. Wandering among the crowds, I noticed that many people were out with their pets.No one bothered them, but the sight of so many dogs with their masters reminded me of an incident from a previous Artscape involving my own beloved pooches.We had taken our two collies, Simon and Bridget, to Artscape that year, decked out with ribbons in their hair and colorful leashes. Lots of people came up to pet them, and invariably they compared them to the Lassies of television, movie and book fame.

Cold and creamy, a lassi is a perfect treat for a summer day, especially when it's flavored with fresh, ripe fruit. Lassis, as fans of Indian food will know, are similar to milkshakes, except they're made with yogurt rather than ice cream. And like a good milkshake, a lassi is versatile enough to carry a wide variety of flavors. If you're like me, you tasted your first lassi in an adventurous moment at an Indian restaurant. Chances are the flavor was mango, which is always a good choice but especially now when fresh mangoes are abundant.
