Mayor Stephanie Rawlings-Blake wasn't exactly jumping when Jada Pinkett Smith asked for her help in protecting elephants earlier this week. The mayor more or less says she had bigger fish to fry -- that and the actress didn't help her out when the city needed it. But Friday Pinkett Smith's aunt, who runs the Baltimore-based charity of the actress, said her niece has done quite a bit for the city -- and she's surprised that the mayor doesn't...

FOR 14 YEARS I've carried the label "HIV positive" and all the baggage that goes with it. But through the darkest of moments I could always depend on one symbol to lift my spirits -- the tiny red ribbon worn by compassionate people throughout the country, but especially by Hollywood celebrities. To me, the ribbon -- worn as a sign of compassion for people with AIDS -- had always been a reminder that when much of the world turned its back on those suffering from the disease, or simply lost interest, Hollywood opened her arms and kept the world's attention focused on this terrible plague.

Tonight is partner switch night and Julianne Hough is a guest judge. Maybe she'll snark on Mark Ballas some more. I loved that. The opening number has the pros dancing while the stars make their entrances one-by-one, without partners. Drew is in a gold lamé suit and I approve wholeheartedly. It's very reminiscent of what Elvis Presley wore on the cover of "50,000 Elvis Fans Can't Be Wrong. " We'll find out later if that's intentional. Julianne is wearing a weird top/dress that has a boob window.

LOUISVILLE, KY. -- Heavy favorite Untapable blazed to victory in the Kentucky Oaks Friday, a triumph for jockey Rosie Napravnik and controversial trainer Steve Asmussen . Napravnik kept Untapable a few paces off the lead for much of the run, then pulled away to win by 41/2 lengths. The performance didn't quite match Rachel Alexandra's 20-length win in 2009, but the even-money favorite lived up to high expectations. "She is magnificent," said Napravnik, who was plenty good herself in winning a second Oaks.

New in hoosgow chow: veggie burgers, tofurkey and mock dogs. Faux meat has gone mainstream among those who are, alas, no longer in the mainstream. Most correctional institutions around the nation offer vegetarian entrees at all meals, according to a new survey by the Norfolk, Va.-based animal-rights group People for the Ethical Treatment of Animals. The group has also looked at colleges (very veggie) and ballparks (not as much) and insists there has been a response to growing demand in the nation's institutions, some of which haven't often been at the forefront of wholesome eating.

One of Baltimore's biggest companies, Constellation Energy Group, could be gobbled up by a Florida utility. What's the most serious fallout for Charm City? Losing one of Baltimore's last Fortune 500 companies? Bummer, but we'd get over it. Losing thousands of jobs. Even bigger bummer. Losing Molly Shattuck as a Ravens cheerleader. Ugh! Perish the thought! I phoned Ms. Molly the other day as news of the merger was spreading to ask what it meant for her cheerleading career. If CEO-hubby Mayo had to look for a new job, would she limit his search to NFL cities?
