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.

Gifts of gems pass quickly through the hands of Condoleezza Rice Arab leaders showered Secretary of State Condoleezza Rice with jewelry worth more than a quarter of a million dollars last year, including at least $316,000 in gem-encrusted baubles from the kings of Jordan and Saudi Arabia, making her one of top recipients among U.S. officials of gifts from foreign heads of state and government and their aides in 2007. In January, Jordan's King Abdullah II gave Rice an emerald and diamond necklace, ring, bracelet and earrings estimated to be worth $147,000, according to the State Department's annual inventory of such items released yesterday just in time for Christmas.

SOME PEOPLE might call it ironic, but it was because of AIDS that I first became involved with animal rights. When my dearest friend, Robert Redding -- who helped me develop the Elvira "Mistress of the Dark," character -- found out he had AIDS, I was determined to keep him going until a cure was found. I was always looking for anything that would make him feel better, and one of the things I heard about was a macrobiotic diet. But the only way I could talk Robert into it was to do it with him. After a while we lapsed from the macrobiotic diet, but Robert and I both stayed vegetarians, and I began reading more about vegetarianism.

Through the miracle of modern science, man has come up with something that is going to be well received by PETA and other animal rights advocates: In the near future, we very likely will be eating synthetic meat ( "Test-tube hamburger patty makes its debut," Aug. 5). Ick! There is no way you can describe this and make it sound edible. From the perspective of animal rights people, I'm certain the day people accept artificial meats cannot arrive too soon. But who in their proper mind would want to eagerly bite into a lab-engineered sirloin strip?

I was disappointed upon seeing the accompanying photograph in Sloane Brown's column about fashion-forward locals ("Glimpsed at Single Carrot Theatre ," Jan. 30). Kirsten Lessner was shown wearing a mink stole that she said was "her grandmother's cousin's. " I am not an in-your-face PETA activist, but I do get offended when I see what I call insensitive journalism. I do not care that the stole was rather old, as Ms. Lessner inferred (perhaps as if to legitimize the fact that she did not purchase it but instead inherited it)

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.

N o matter how much snow lands on Maryland, one thing's for sure: Katie O'Malley will face it furless.

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?
