Where will it end, this trend to reduce the names of institutions to a handful of initials? Kentucky Fried Chicken has become KFC. National Public Radio calls itself NPR. Procter & Gamble became P & G. And this week, the Young Men's Christian Association, or YMCA, announced that it wanted to be known simply by the casual moniker, "the Y." Calling yourself what everyone else calls you is more welcoming, a marketing officer for the 166-year-old nonprofit explained. Maybe so. It is true that around here we refer to the "Towson Y," the "33 r d street Y" and to the "old Y."

The clouds didn't exactly part for the Blue Angels, but they lifted just enough Saturday afternoon, the rain stopped, and suddenly three F/A-18 Hornets soared past in tight formation over the southeast edge of the Inner Harbor — the show was on for the Star-Spangled Spectacular. Thousands of people gathered at the Inner Harbor to celebrate the 200th anniversary of the national anthem waited nearly two hours for a glimpse of the team, as the rain sprinkled on and off, clouds lowered and lifted again, and the Blue Angels waited for safe flying conditions.

"Crisco never varies." - From a 1912 advertisement That seems a fair statement, no? Ninety years later there Crisco remains, just as fluffy and slippery and industrial white-white as the first day the stuff rolled off the line. Had someone refrigerated one of those first cans of all-vegetable shortening, who's to say you couldn't crack it open right now and roll a nice pie crust for your Thanksgiving meal? Who needs a time machine when there's Crisco? It's possible to look at a scoop of it today and with even modest leaps of imagination experience the wonder folks must have felt in those first Crisco encounters during the William H. Taft years.

First the wind came, then the rain, and then the wait. While the Orioles waited through a 2-hour, 22-minute rain delay at Camden Yards, Sunday night turned into Monday morning. Inside the Orioles clubhouse, players kept watch of the clocks, ready to disperse across the country for the All-Star break after the game. “It was kind of crazy,” Orioles starting pitcher Kevin Gausman said. “I made the joke, 'We're pretty much on the All-Star break. " Eleven minutes after midnight, the game officially was called, giving the Orioles a 3-1 victory over the division rival New York Yankees.

At Glen Burnie's perennially crowded post office, the scene yesterday did not seem incredibly different from the norm.Cars maneuvered about the crammed lot, and the line inside snaked all the way to the door as people patiently waited, some carefully balancing boxes big and small. Resigned customers blamed the yuletide for the long wait this time."It's just part of life when it gets to this time of year," said Bill Curlett, a Glen Burnie driver who stopped by at 11 a.m. to mail a business document for his wife.

Around the house* When cleaning up after painting, wipe off lid and rim of can of paint; rub a coat of vegetable shortening on rims of can and lid. Next time you're painting, the lid will be easier to remove.* Check filters of room air-conditioners at least once a month. If dirty, clean with mild soap and water. Remember to turn off units whenever house is empty.

If you need something to depress you, look no further than the second National Nutritional Literacy Survey, a recent, statistically significant poll of 1,000 American adults.At the time of the original 1989 survey, 53 percent of those responding didn't know that vegetable shortening was high in saturated fat. And in 1991, even more people are answering incorrectly (58 percent).In the 1991 survey, 72 percent know that white streaks in meat are fat, compared to 61 percent in 1989.

Up in Cockeysville, Michael Vito imagines Earth with no moon: "What would happen to the Earth and the ... weather if our moon were totally destroyed?" Assuming Luna simply vanished, and didn't explode and rain moonrocks on us, NASA says ocean tides would be a third as high, and more constant week to week. But they would persist, thanks to the sun's gravity. Earth would spin faster, like Jupiter, shortening the day. Our winds would be stronger and steadier, west to east, bringing less variable weather and better surf.

Regarding an editorial that appeared in The Aegis, while we at the Maryland Motor Vehicle Administration appreciate the interest in promoting the MVA's "Anywhere, Anytime" online campaign, the editorial mischaracterizes the recent policies enacted to shorten wait times at our branch offices ( "Too young to get served at the MVA?" April 22). Over the past several years, the MVA has been working to transform the perception of the agency; we want customers to think first of online services and of visiting an MVA branch only if necessary.

In its first season with a girls golf team, Archbishop Spalding on Tuesday won the rain-shortened Interscholastic Athletic Association of Maryland A Conference championship. The Cavaliers' win ended a run of six-straight titles by Roland Park. An “unplayable” Fox Hollow Golf Course forced the IAAM to cancel the second day of play and use Monday's first round scores to determine the title winner. “What we saw was that the greens were unplayable,” Friends School athletic director Greg Whitley and IAAM golf commissioner said.

I find it appalling that letter writer J. Robert Clark, a school bus driver, regards teachers as lazy for requesting respite from the inordinate number of make-up days that would be required this year to reach a magic 180 days ( "Waivers are for lazy teachers," March 29). As a parent of a city school student, my experience has been that teachers are extremely hardworking and dedicated to their students. My son's class sizes are usually 30 to 32 students. Teachers have multiple classes which means that when students go home their work continues with corrections of papers and preparation for the next day's classes.

Suk-min Yoon, the Orioles' free-agent right-hander from South Korea who appeared in two Grapefruit League games after securing his work visa earlier this month, pitched four innings in the Orioles' 4-3 win Saturday against their Triple-A affiliate, the Norfolk Tides. The game was canceled because of persistent rain after the Orioles batted in the top of the sixth. The 27-year Yoon, who has already been sent down to Triple-A and added to Norfolk's rotation, pitched against the Tides lineup and allowed four hits and two runs while walking none and striking out two. He faced the minimum number of batters in three of his innings, but allowed three hits and two runs in the third, which ended with two outs.

The construction time of this year's Grand Prix of Baltimore course has been reduced by 10 days, softening the effects on city traffic and downtown businesses, officials for the Labor Day weekend event announced Tuesday. General manager Tim Mayer said race organizers and city officials collaborated on a plan to close entire blocks at night and in the early morning, allowing workers to build the 12-turn, two-mile track from 8 p.m. to 5 a.m. on most days. This approach, instead of closing single lanes during higher-traffic periods, will shorten construction from 31 days to 21. "We didn't expect we'd be able to do that, but it was our goal to minimize the impact on the people of Baltimore," Mayer said Tuesday, when race officials held a ceremonial dropping of a jersey wall that will line the course.

Holiday baked goodsThere's something about the holidays. Maybe it's the wonderful aromas recollected from childhood. Maybe it's the generally festive air that says it's time for a treat. Maybe it's something the kids have to have for school. Whatever the reason, this is a season when a lot of people head into the kitchen and bake cookies and other treats. There's nothing like the old favorites -- chocolate chip cookies from the back of the chocolate-chip package. Butter cookies in the shape of trees or stars.

On the occasion of my pastry epiphany, I felt amazement, gratitude and liberation -- an awakening to a new world order, a world in which I'm free from pie crust anxiety.It is a freedom born of desperation. I was desperate for a pie crust and didn't want to drive to the supermarket for a package of Pillsbury's best.Perhaps it was just my time. After years of frustration, I unexpectedly found myself blessed with "the touch."I can now make a pie crust that is flaky and tender with a pretty fluted edge.

After last June's derecho — and Tropical Storms Irene and Isabel before it — Rodgers Forge resident Nancy Slaterback was fed up with power outages. "The problem's getting worse. It's not getting better," she told members of the Public Service Commission at a hearing on the derecho blackouts last summer that left her and many of her neighbors without power for the better part of a week, among 1 million outages statewide. A year later, the outrage has faded, but there is still work to be done.
