Smarty Jones and Rainbow Blue share such similar stories that it's startling their major difference - their celebrity - is so great. Compared to Smarty Jones, one of the most popular thoroughbreds in years, Rainbow Blue is a relative unknown. Yet tomorrow, the Maryland-born filly could be named the standardbred Horse of the Year. Ranked No. 1 in the national poll of harness racehorses, she's the leading contender for that paramount honor. Rainbow Blue would be the second straight standardbred Horse of the Year born at Winbak Farm, the 2,300-acre behemoth in Cecil County that is Maryland's largest horse farm for breed, standardbred or thoroughbred.

Regular Gay Matters blogger Kevin Rector is on vacation, so I'll be filling in on this week's Looking Out and will do my best to bring you all the important LGBT news of the week. Comment below if I've left anything out. Here's the goods (and maybe some mehs):  In what is surely the tastiest news of the week, Burger King celebrates San Francisco Pride by wrapping its Whoppers in rainbows, the message (and the words on the inside of the wrapper) being "We are all the same inside.

Nelson Mandela made an eloquent plea for common humanity upon being inaugurated the first president of South Africa who was either black or the product of an election in which most of the adults of the country could vote. It was a worthy cap to his 75 years as campaigner for liberation.But it was also a great occasion of state, watched by a dazzling array of international luminaries running the gamut from Prince Philip of Britain to Fidel Castro of Cuba, and including Mayor Kurt L. Schmoke, Rep. Kweisi Mfume and NAACP Executive Director Benjamin Chavis of Baltimore.

A gay Russian protestor was detained Saturday for waving a rainbow flag as the Olympic torch moved through his hometown north of Sochi, the Associated Press reports. A video uploaded to YouTube appears to show the man, who the AP identified as Pavel Lebedev, running along the side of the road bearing a rainbow flag. Olympic staffers scuffle with him before hauling him to the sidewalk.

HAVRE de GRACE -- William Colby, mysteriously missing and presumed drowned in the waters of southern Maryland, was described in several recent news stories as a ''former spymaster'' -- a term inevitably applied to anyone who served as chief of the Central Intelligence Agency.To journalists, former spymasters come in two models, the gray and the colorful. Mr. Colby, though he was no desk jockey and had parachuted into occupied France during World War II, was perceived as the former. His personality and appearance were lacking in flamboyance, and so his assigned image in the press was that of a bureaucrat, not a swashbuckling secret agent.

THEY BROUGHT back a rainbow at Druid Hill Park two nights ago, and everybody called this a great symbol of the city's rebirth. They were partly right. There were maybe 300 people gathered by the great reservoir there, and it was dark, and such a thing is not supposed to happen. Muggings are supposed to happen after dark. This is part of our municipal folklore. But the mood was utterly serene, and the crowd included delighted children, and people of all colors, and such facts take us beyond mere symbols.

Tess McNew reluctantly glances out her bedroom window in the stately mansion known as Rainbow Hall. Below her second-floor window is one of two gnarled ming trees Japanese Emperor Hirohito gave to then-Brigadier Gen. Douglas MacArthur 75 years ago, when the World War I hero and his wife lived in this elegant Georgian-style home just above the rim of the Green Spring Valley. A soft-spoken lady with snow-white hair, McNew is preparing to leave the Baptist Home, the retirement community that took up residence in Rainbow Hall in 1963, and now is closing because of financial problems.

Likely sensing that uproar over Russia's anti-gay law isn't going away, FIFA says it has asked Russia for "clarification and more details" about the country's law ahead of the 2018 World Cup being held there, the Associated Press reports . Smart move, given how the International Olympic Committee has yet to receive a definitive answer from Russian officials about how the law will be enforced at the Sochi Winter Olympics in February. In a statement, FIFA says it has "zero tolerance against discrimination.

My apples looked good until recently. Now they have tiny black spots and gray blotches that look like mildew but are dry. Are they ruined? Rains last month created conditions for two fungi: flyspeck and sooty blotch. Both of these fungi can be washed off. Soak and scrub off or just peel the apples. Fortunately, they don't affect eating quality. The leaves of my rhododendron are getting rough and brown patches. Is this a fungus I should spray? This time of year, those symptoms would be caused by the snowy tree cricket.

Skin protection is of the utmost importance during summer, whether you're on the beach or by the pool. Although it's a bit cooler at the shore and you may escape the really scorching heat, you can't be too careful. There are plenty of options for sunscreen in many different SPFs, UVA and UVB protections, but if you really want to accent your vacation with a little color, try Zinka sunblock. Now I understand that being protected from the sun is not about looking cool, but you can look cool and still protect your skin by rocking Zinka, a zinc oxide sunblock that comes in 10 different colors.

As Maryland continues to gear up for a gay marriage question on the ballot this fall, another snack food has taken sides on the issue. Following in the footsteps of Ben & Jerry's gay marriage ice cream flavor , Oreo is showing support for same-sex couples with a rainbow cookie. The "Pride" cookie isn't something people can buy -- at least not yet. Rather, the company released a picture of it Monday on its Facebook page. The rainbow layered Oreo with the tagline "Pride" garnered more than 145,000 likes and nearly 35,000 shares in less than a day. Supporters immediately began campaigning for Oreo to make the icing-heavy creation real, something people could buy and eat. (It would be like extreme Double Stuff with all that icing.)
