A 780-pound steer headed for slaughter in West Baltimore seized a chance at freedom Friday, leaping a barbed-wire fence and taking a brisk two-mile walk along North Avenue that ended when the animal was gunned down by police in Mid-Town Belvedere. The steer was first spotted about 10:15 a.m. after escaping from the George G. Ruppersberger & Sons Inc. slaughterhouse in the 2600 block of Pennsylvania Ave., according to police.

"Slaughterhouse: Bosnia and the Failure of the West," by David Rieff. 240 pages. New York: Simon & Schuster. $22It is David Rieff's shocking conclusion about war in the Bal-kans that we have reached the point where to bear witness is the remaining alternative to losing hope in the face of unchecked crimes against humanity. At least bearing witness preserves an indictment from which succeeding generations might benefit where ours has not.Thus it is to bear witness that Rieff has written "Slaughterhouse," a conscience-searing account on how ethnic nationalism triumphed in Bosnia.

At first, Chuck Mitchell did not think it was such a great idea to insert a slaughterhouse joke in the middle of Shrek. "I said, wait a minute, I don't think so. I mean it's one thing to have Shrek say he's going to kick Donkey's butt; it's another to have him dragging him off to the meat house." But then, Mitchell isn't Polish. Apparently, in Poland, there is a very funny folk tale involving a donkey and a slaughterhouse. And according to the translator working on the Polish version of the wildly successful DreamWorks film, they would be fools not to refer to it. So, Mitchell said go with the slaughterhouse.

Eating meat causes systematic suffering It's that time of year again: The time when we read about the 4-H kids at the state fair who experience sadness and grief when the animals they've lovingly raised are taken away to go to the slaughterhouse ("Livestock raised, life lessons gained," Aug. 24). I'm relieved that many of the people involved in this process admit that it's sad. But I'm weary of hearing the justifications for this sadness, such as that meat is "part of a balanced diet" and "this is what [the animals]

So it went. Man born. Man died. Lots of funny stuff written in between. Hi Ho. Kurt Vonnegut - post-modern satirist, king of the catchphrase (should've trademarked "So it goes," old boy), one of America's great rite-of-passage novelists - died Wednesday at 84. Official cause of death: brain injuries suffered in a fall. Or, as Mr. Vonnegut would say, "slipped on God's banana peel." He was a self-described humanist who didn't put much stock in humans, those glorious, hare-brained underachievers.

From a glass porch overlooking a lush, green pasture on her 140-acre farm in New Windsor, Edna McNemar glimpses her piece of equine paradise. She watches a dark bay warm- blood named Dino suddenly charge toward a light bay thoroughbred named Not With The Maid. Both rear in what appears to be a fighting pose, then quickly gallop off to mingle with other horses in their grazing herd. It's hardly a confrontation, however. "That's horseplay," McNemar says brightly. "Literally horseplay. They're just having fun."

POSTVILLE, Iowa - Ever since the arrival of their extraordinary neighbors, folks in this tiny northeastern Iowa town have grown used to being an anomaly. When a family of Lubavitch Jews, an ultra-Orthodox sect, bought the local slaughterhouse in 1987 and converted it to a kosher plant, Postville became an experiment in cultural diversity as immigrants from up to 30 nations flocked to the town for jobs. Then, early this month, an animal-rights group released an undercover video that it claims represents inhumane killing practices at the slaughterhouse, and Postville found itself at the center of an international squall involving religion, grass-roots politics, the news media and the humble cow. Since the Virginia-based People for the Ethical Treatment of Animals, or PETA, set its sights on practices inside Postville's sprawling Agriprocessors plant, "the buzz [in town]

Stephen G. Bloom, a San Francisco-based journalist who had seen it all and had enough, chucked it in the early '90s and moved his family to Iowa, home of the Hawkeyes and lots of corn, but precious little of his beloved Jewish culture. "You can get bagels in Iowa," says the University of Iowa journalism professor. "But they taste more like unsweetened doughnuts." He was feeling very much like a stranger in a strange land when he stumbled upon a magazine article about a sect of Hasidic Jews called the Lubavitchers, who in 1987 moved from the Crown Heights neighborhood in Brooklyn to a tiny Iowa town called Postville to start a kosher slaughterhouse.

Like an old song that keeps coming back, the debate over food irradiation has resurfaced again. The catalyst is the Food and Drug Administration's decision to approve irradiation as a way to kill potentially deadly organisms on beef, lamb and organ meat.Perhaps the first thing to know about food irradiation is that it isn't new -- not the idea, not the technology, not the debate. Since the 1980s, the Food and Drug Administration has acted several times to approve irradiation for different foods -- spices, pork, fresh fruits, enzyme preparations, dried vegetables and poultry.
