Anne H. Leitch, a former professional skater who performed during the 1930s and 1940s with Shipstads & Johnson Ice Follies and the Ice Capades, died March 20 of pneumonia at St. Agnes Hospital. She was 94. Anne Haroldson, who was born and raised in Duluth, Minn., began ice skating when she was 5. During the 1928 Minneapolis-St. Paul Winter Carnival, which starred world champion and Olympic skater Sonja Henie, she filled in at the last minute for a professional skater. "Sonja would not allow any pros on the program with her," Mrs. Leitch wrote in unpublished autobiographical notes.

I was surprised by the number of people, a little more than 100, who had gathered to eat cassoulet. Cassoulet, a slow-cooked French stew, is not trendy or light. It is ancient fare and full of beans. Legend says it was created by starving peasants in southwestern France as a way to overcome the siege of the English during the Hundred Years' War. Yet on a recent Saturday night, nine cooks had gone to the considerable trouble of making cassoulets, and a crowd of eaters was milling about the backyard of the Guilford home of Dick and Leslie Leitch, sampling the goods, then voting for favorites.

When Orioles designated hitter Aubrey Huff walked into a Florida radio studio last week, he probably never thought he was about to join a fellowship that includes Monica Lewinsky, Britney Spears and Michael Vick. But in the week since he impugned Baltimore's nightlife and shared the Bubba the Love Sponge studio with a naked porn star, Huff has become a subject of Internet infamy. He's in hot water with fans and club executives over a radio appearance that never could have circulated five or 10 years ago. And he's learning a prime new media lesson: If you're a public figure, assume that anything said near a recording device will be heard by anyone and everyone.
