WASHINGTON -- Hillary Clinton's epiphany, confided to the country during the Democratic convention, that it takes not only a village but also a president to raise a child, does not do justice to the scope of caring in her husband's administration. Sure, it takes a president, everyone knows that, but it also takes this president's Food and Drug Administration.Evidently the FDA thinks it has a roving commission to prevent ''family discord.'' And it has acted to do so by issuing an edict designed to prevent parents from getting too intimately involved in raising their own children.

Every April, camera crews from ABC's "Wide World of Sports" would turn up on the horse farms a few miles from where I grew up for the annual running of the Maryland Hunt Cup, part of the spring steeplechase horse racing series that graces Maryland's equestrian country from Monkton to Glyndon and beyond each spring. Portrayed as a grand tradition of what I call the lockjaw set (people of inherited means who talk in low growls though their back teeth have been soldered together), the event never failed to draw a substantial crowd of local commoners.

2007 Forest Glen Magenta Rose From: California Price: $8 Serve with: Fried chicken, hot dogs, ham This deeply pink rose is precisely the type of wine to drink when you're not being serious about wine. Throw it on ice in a cooler next to the beer, haul it out to a picnic venue and drink it out of a plastic cup. It's very fruity but quite dry, with touches of strawberry and cherry. Despite its bargain price, it's also classy enough that you can invite it indoors, if you're inclined.

A snowball stand's success depends on two key things: hot weather and lots of hard work, say Baltimore-area purveyors of the summer treat. Add those ingredients to the crushed ice and syrup concoction that has long been a regional favorite, and summertime entrepreneurs say they can make a decent living during the season's warmest weeks. "A lot of people think it's easy to start it," said Margo Torsell, who along with family members runs a three-year-old stand on Liberty Road in Randallstown.

WASHINGTON -- When Rep. Charlie Norwood was diagnosed with a chronic lung disease a few years back, he followed the orders of his wife, Gloria, and gave up red meat, chewing tobacco and his favorite cigars. But that didn't save the Georgia Republican - recently recovered from a lung transplant and hooked up to an oxygen tank - from landing in a shroud of cigarette smoke recently as he parked his scooter chair in the Speaker's Lobby outside the House floor. Norwood doesn't smoke anymore, but several of his congressional colleagues do, defiantly and unapologetically, making Congress one of the few indoor workplaces - and possibly the most famous - in the country where it's still legal to light up. The Council of the District of Columbia passed a law that will make indoor workplaces, bars and restaurants smoke-free by next January.

Inside one of the nicer portable toilets in the Preakness Infield, Christine Johnson cleaned up and attended to the ladies using the restroom Saturday. The 50-year-old Baltimore resident said she lucked out in getting assigned to one of the three restroom facilities at the turfside terrace, where patrons pay a premium for a gourmet luncheon, beer and wine. Her facility featured air conditioning as well as five stalls and a granite-textured, three-sink basin. Johnson described it as the Cadillac of portable toilets, usually known as a one-person station without any amenities, let alone ventilation.
