Principal Amanda Rice and a school liaison official from the Baltimore City Department of Health met with about 50 parents Friday morning to reassure them that students were safe. The school's facilities team spent the previous evening wiping down desks, bathroom stalls and stair rails with antibacterial agents, paying special attention to the classroom shared by the students.

At least one student at George Washington Elementary in southwest Baltimore has been diagnosed with scarlet fever, according to the city health department. A letter was sent home to parents Thursday detailing the illness' symptoms. Scarlet fever is a common infection caused by streptococcus bacteria and spread by person-to-person contact, coughing and sneezing, according to the letter. The illness can be treated with antibiotics. If left untreated, complications such as rheumatic fever and kidney disease may ensue, the letter says.

For the last 20 minutes I've been trying to remember whether it was the philosopher Kierkegaard or my Aunt Claire who made this profound observation: "Everything is always about something else."But regardless of who said it, the idea conveyed in that short, simple sentence is as relevant to our lives as any I can think of. A relevant idea but, perhaps because such a view implies chaos, an idea not often examined.Now, however, there is a movie that portrays the sharp truth behind the assumption that "Everything is about something else."

Never mind that she and her family have traveled the world singing and been the subject of one of the most beloved musicals of all time. Agathe von Trapp spent much of her life as a virtual recluse.

Yes, the suit is frequently washed. Important to knock that question out before the story of Baltimore's Red Suit Enthusiasts gets under way in all its Spandex, silliness and super power. Transforming a thrift store find, Hunter Smith and Kathryn Long of Mount Vernon have launched a Red Suit movement, a Web site (redsuit.org) and a state of mind and body. Their touring, partying, one-size-fits-all red suit is one piece art project, one piece faux wrestling club, one piece raw human nature and literally one red piece of no-holds-barred fabric.
