The indefatigable David Marsh, editor and author of For Who the Bell Tolls: One Man's Quest for Grammatical Perfection , demolishes in a brief article in the Guardian  the Trussites and all others who carry on about our degenerate and illiterate age.  " Conservatives long for a golden age, usually about 50 years in the past, when everyone knew their grammar and all was right with the world," he says. But the evidence is to the contrary.  The key piece of evidence, which you may wish to embroider on a sampler, is this:  "What is more, even Grammar, the basis of all education, baffles the brains of the younger generation today.

The good news is that kids younger than 10 eat free at participating Denny's restaurants with the purchase of an adult meal, 4 p.m.-10 p.m. Tuesdays-Saturdays. The not-so-good news is that it's easy for those meals to break the bank on fat, calories and sodium. The Little Dippers Sampler, pictured with fruit, looks like a good choice, but it's got 23 grams fat and a whopping 1,200 milligrams sodium - before you even get to the fruit or the dressings. Flying Saucer pizza has a better profile.

'Modern Terrorism' Imagine "Homeland" with a laugh track. You cannot help but admire the nerve of playwright Jon Kern (a writer for "The Simpsons") in tackling such intensely emotional and divisive material, and fleshing out so vividly the three characters who, in their sparsely furnished Brooklyn apartment, nonchalantly plan to rain destruction on a Manhattan landmark. But even 12 years after 9/11, are we really ready to laugh at Muslim terrorists? Maybe. There's certainly fun to be had with the sitcom-worthy portion of the dialogue and antics, starting with the play-opening, bombs-in-the-briefs scene.

On Dec. 4, 1831, 10-year-old Mary Pets put the last of hundreds and hundreds of elegant stitches in a sampler she made for "her dear parents" while a pupil at the School for Colored Girls of the Oblate Sisters of Providence. Mary Pets' sampler is still in the archives of the Oblate Sisters, at their mother house west of Arbutus, the oldest in the Sisters' collection definitely made by one of their students. The only older sampler known to be by an Oblate pupil is in the Maryland Historical Society.

Reggae on the sound system, butterfly decorations, a radiator painted purple and yellow, softly turning ceiling fans, a friendly staff: The Yabba Pot restaurant in lower Charles Village offers no stress. And no meat. The long list of selections changes daily at the vegetarian and vegan restaurant, where bumper stickers calling for peace grace the walls. To avoid tough decisions, I ordered the sampler ($10.50), which offered no less than 12 choices, including veggie lo mein (chewy in a good way)

Samos doesn't take reservations, doesn't take credit cards and doesn't have a liquor license. Yet it does have plenty of customers. What pulls people into this small, family-run operation is the food. The kitchen, supervised by chef and owner Nicholas Georgalas, dishes up zesty Greek fare in portions that would feed an All-American football player. The dozen or so tables split between two dining rooms, one offering a view of the open kitchen, are usually full — occupied by priests, workmen, staff members from nearby Johns Hopkins Bayview Medical Center and extended families.

Eight years ago, Jim and Barbara Hutson moved from Chesapeake, Va., back home to Maryland to be closer to family. "We couldn't afford the house we sold in Arnold [Maryland] in 1999," Jim Hutson said. "So we marched east until we found Queenstown." And there, just over the Kent Narrows Bridge in Queen Anne's County, they found the development of Wye Knot Farm. A Colonial-style house struck their fancy in October 2001. With finishing touches still incomplete, the Hutsons were able to choose kitchen cabinets and to request a cubby over the fireplace for a flat-screen TV. The couple paid $271,900 for the four-bedroom, 2 1/2 -bath, two-story home and moved in December of that year.

Las Vegas Wallpaper City Guide Phaidon Press, $8.95 These chic "anti-guides" for "anti-tourists" are slim and stylish enough to consult on the run while concealing the fact that you are just an out-of-it out-of-towner. Created by the editors of Wallpaper magazine, which is devoted to international design and lifestyle, these discreet directories employ classy photographs lightly seasoned with savvy suggestions. The Las Vegas version opens with a fold-out shot of the Strip and a photo gallery of Vegas landmarks, followed by a tour of top hotels, a sampler of top restaurants, and a whirlwind, 24-hour itinerary (breakfast at Wynn Buffet, gawking at Graceland Wedding Chapel, slots at Bellagio, drinks at Onda and burlesque at Forty Deuce)
