Recently a woman I know named Michelle came into the newspaper office with a big ugly wound on her upper arm. Realizing that she might be self-conscious about it, I said, "Michelle, what's that big ugly wound on your upper arm?" Sensitivity is the cornerstone of journalism.It turned out that Michelle had been bitten by a horse. It was her own horse, and it bit her while she was trying to feed it. This is a typical horse maneuver. Horses are the opposite of dogs, gratitudewise. You give a dog something totally wretched to eat, such as a toad part or a wad of pre-chewed Dentyne, and the dog will henceforth view you as the Supreme Being.

Editor's note: A vision quest clarifies one boy's destiny. Crazy Horse, they say, was always different. Many children cry when they are born, but not Crazy Horse. He studied the world with serious eyes. "Look at our son," his mother said. "How brave he is!" "See how curly his hair is," said his father, Tashunka Witco. "We will call him Curly," said his mother. Seasons passed. The boy named Curly grew strong and wiry, but would never be tall. Though small, Curly was a leader. When others spoke, he was quiet.

WHEN Ellee Perri spies the rocking horse in her grandparents' living room, she eagerly runs to it, climbs on and rocks back and forth with a big smile on her face. Not too unusual for a 22-month-old. But unlike most toddlers her age, Ellee is equally comfortable in a saddle atop a real horse - a Shetland pony. And she'll be riding that pony at the 120th annual Maryland State Fair, which opens tomorrow in Timonium for an 11-day run. Oh, and it will be Ellee's second State Fair competition.

President Obama doesn't seem to care how he spends taxpayers' money. Two years ago, he took us for almost $800 billion (that's "billion," folks, with a "B") with his "American Recovery and Reinvestment Act of 2009. " Remember all those "shovel-ready" jobs he talked about? Now, he wants us to pony up another $447 billion to create more phantom jobs. How's that saying go? "Fool me once, shame on you. Fool me twice.... " Richard T. Seymour, Catonsville

Not every pony can be persuaded to wear a tuxedo, complete with trousers, black tie and top hat perched at a rakish angle.And not every pony can learn to throw a flying disk.But not every pony has Hampstead 14-year-old Linda Fahnestock for its owner and trainer.Linda, an eighth-grader at Hereford Middle School, has persuaded ponies to do both of the above. And she is about to take her equitation on the road, to Australia -- if she can raise enough money to pay for the trip.She is one of six youngsters nationwide to be selected to represent the national Pony of the Americas Club at two large horse shows in Australia in April.
