Ocean City is one of those beaches that can be all things to all people - unless you're looking for a quiet beach in high season. It's where Baltimore goes to catch some rays, play in the surf, build sandcastles and eat saltwater taffy. Those who have been going back every summer since childhood can still get a bad sunburn, eat too many Thrashers fries and lose at mini-golf to their 5-year-old. (Ocean City may well be the mini-golf capital of the universe.) But O.C. is also changing. It's becoming more worldly and more affluent, and it's also shoring up its past (no pun intended)

Oh, those wacky Scandinavians! What a zany lot! Inside every silver lining there's a dark cloud; it's always lightest until the darkness dawns; why suffer tomorrow when you can suffer today and tomorrow!The latest depression-o-rama from the Northlands arrives in the "The Ox," a deliciously oppressive and crushingly lugubrious work from Ingmar Bergman's long-time cinemato- grapher, Sven Nykvist. The film will be shown tonight at 9 at the Baltimore Museum of Art as part of the 24th International Film Festival.

So now it's confirmed that South Korean stem cell king Hwang Woo Suk had been lying all along - not just about the illicit manner in which the women's eggs used in his experiments were obtained, but about his major claim to have successfully created clonal human embryos in the first place. He lied to the news media, the public, his government and patients hoping for cures. I heard Mr. Hwang speak just over a year ago at a forum at the United Nations. He was lauded by the scientists present as the Galileo of stem cell research.

Piney Run Park in Sykesville needed a log mover, able to relocate a 19-foot-long, 3,000-pound, felled white pine to its nature center. The solution came from an Internet query posted by a park naturalist. Two ox drovers answered, offering three teams of sure-footed oxen willing to travel from out of state and work on Sunday. So the park decided to hold a Moovin' the Big Log event today and billed it as a demonstration of the power and ability of working cattle. "We had this log, and we had carvers who could turn it into a dugout canoe for our Native American Exhibit," said Tom Harbold, the park's assistant naturalist.

* Editor's note: Greatness -- and happiness -- comes to a man after he humbles himself before Mother Nature. Long ago on a hill beside the sea, there lived a man who was tall as a tree, strong as a bull and faster than the wind itself. That man was MacMurtrey, and he was greater than all men who had ever lived. Late in the summer, when there was firewood to split and there were fields to tend, MacMurtrey would only swagger about, proclaiming: "There are none so great, so great as me!" All the while, MacMurtrey's people worked, doing their best to ignore his boasting.

With a cover photo of a smiling girl holding a cute, woolly sheep in front of a glittering Christmas tree, the catalog could be from a fancy children's clothing store. A Web site and a 24-hour phone line make it easy to order last-minute holiday presents. But this catalog, from the relief organization World Vision, offers "gifts of hope" instead of cashmere sweaters and funky slippers. It's part of a movement by charities to capitalize on holiday commercialism - and our guilt over it - by encouraging gifts of philanthropy.

I'm not the quiet one, everyone else is too loud," bassist John Entwistle sang on the Who's otherwise forgettable Face Dances album in 1981. Still, John Entwistle -- who died of a heart attack Thursday in Las Vegas -- is remembered as the quiet one of the Who, which joined with the Beatles and Rolling Stones to form the great triumvirate of British rock bands. Entwistle, 57, was found dead in his hotel room on the eve of the Who's American tour, which was set to begin Friday in Las Vegas.
