Yes, I sent my child to day care in the outfit above -- a tie-dye onesie, car-print socks and soccer-ball legwarmers. We're behind on laundry, OK? It happens! You should have seen the other guy. Big brother was in an outfit that matched, actually, but he was also wearing a superhero cape and mask, so we got all kinds of looks at drop-off this morning. Whatever, right? We got through the day. Plus, if the kid spits up on himself, who will be able to tell? Tie-dye is the real camo!

If a husband takes on more chores, does a grateful wife repay his efforts with more sex? It might depend on which chores. Lori Gottlieb, a psychologist and author of "Marry Him: The Case for Settling for Mr. Good Enough," suggested in a New York Times Magazine article that partners in so-called peer marriages, or more equal marriages, report having less sex than partners in marriages where the husband and the wife perform more traditional duties....

I have here a letter from Alison Schuler of Albuquerque, N.M. (motto: "The City That Is Probably Spelled Wrong"). Ms. Schuler is concerned about the issue of how guys do laundry. She relates the following anecdote:"My husband announced one morning that he had discovered the previous night, on the eve of a two-day business trip, that he was out of underwear. Why he told me, I do not know. I never tell him when I'm out of underwear. Anyway, he decided to remedy the situation in true guy fashion, by washing exactly three sets of underwear, thus disregarding the bulging hamper full of the rest of his underwear, which, presumably, would wash itself during his absence."

I CAN IDENTIFY with the thousands of Lockheed Martin Corp. workers who are awaiting word this week about the company's restructuring plans. By Friday, they're expecting to learn whether they'll get laid off.In the late 1940s, my father feared he would be laid off from the then-Glenn L. Martin Co. in Middle River, because of post-World War II cuts in defense spending. Fortunately, my father was not laid off then, but I'll never forget the plans he made -- including opening a business -- in the event that he did lose his job.I was a preschooler and my sister and brother were teen-agers when mother and daddy decided to open a self-service laundry in either 1948 or 1949 (the exact date is lost to history)

Admit it. There is nothing as pleasing as the smell of freshly laundered sheets, or a comforter that has spent the day hanging in the breeze and the sunshine. There is not much more reassuring than the sight of all your dress shirts crisply ironed and lined up like soldiers in your closet. Fluffy towels, warm from the dryer; a favorite pair of jeans, ready to go again; a stack of folded kitchen towels, the stains magically gone. It is hard to focus on the sensuality of clean laundry when you are facing a mountain of it, but author Cheryl Mendelson does.

TODAY WE PRESENT: Laundry Tips for Guys. Many guys have trouble with laundry, because of the technical complexity involved. Even a very "high-tech" guy, a guy who can build a working nuclear submarine using only staples, is reluctant to attempt to do laundry, because there are so many variables: You have your lights and your darks, of course, but you also have your stripes, some of which could be delicates, or even hand-washables, not to mention your...

The cards did not look stacked in Salisbury's favor as the reigning national champion took on the unenviable task of trying to upend undefeated Dickinson. But that is exactly what the No. 12 Sea Gulls did as they evicted the No. 2 Red Devils, 11-9, from a NCAA tournament quarterfinal Wednesday. Salisbury improved to 17-5 and will meet No. 4 Stevenson (20-2) this Sunday night for the right to advance to the title game in Philadelphia on May 26. It is a development that coach Jim Berkman is thankful for. “It was a great win on the road against a team that had an unblemished season,” he said Thursday morning.

Household-product maker Sun Products said it will lay off 53 people next month at its manufacturing plant on Holabird Avenue in Southeast Baltimore. Spokeswoman Kathryn Corbally said the cuts, planned for May 13, are a result of the Connecticut-based company "realigning the manufacture of products with the customer base. " She wouldn't specify which products. The company's brands include laundry detergents such as all and Wisk, fabric softeners and dish detergent. Gerry Setley, vice president of the International Chemical Workers Union Council, which represents many of the plant's 350 workers, said the company is shifting its laundry detergent production across North America.

OF ALL THE battles you fight in your the life, the one for control of your laundry room is of primary importance. Throughout history, sages have commented on the significance of having clean clothes and a smooth-running laundry room operation. There is for instance, that ancient but often misreported quote from Lao-tzu's laundress: "A journey of a thousand miles must begin with clean socks." There is the overlooked rejoinder from the wife of noted football coach Red Sanders: "Winning isn't everything, there is also washing, drying and spot-removing."

PHILADELPHIA -- Lisa Budnick has been liberated by laundry. Which is ironic. For 20 years she was a nudist, preferring, whenever possible, not to wear clothes. Now she supports herself by washing them. Not that nudists don't have laundry. "There's always sheets and towels," she says. Budnick, 43, of Philadelphia, has been cocaine- and alcohol-free for eight years. Last year, she sold her weekend place at the nudist colony in the Poconos. No more time for nudity. She's focused on laundry.

This past holiday season, the group collected 1,600 donated backpacks filled with hooded sweatshirts, thermal underwear, wool socks, a hat and gloves.

Luigi "Gino" Manelli, whose career as a professional artist and teacher spanned seven decades and who was known for his use of color and light, died Saturday of cancer at St. Elizabeth Rehabilitation Center in Southwest Baltimore. He was 94. Mr. Manelli, who was known as "Gino," was born in Philadelphia to parents who emigrated from Abruzzo. In 1923, he returned to Italy with his parents, who established a general store and later a laundry business. As a youngster, he began doodling on old dry-goods bags he found in his parents' store; when he was older, he began taking formal lessons from artists in Abruzzo.
