The picture of Baltimore Mayor Stephanie Rawlings-Blake on the front of the Maryland Business section makes her look so very, very sad. Come on, the piece is about the city pensions ( "City pension change OK'd ," May 6). The mayor has a very comely smile. I am curious to learn why The Sun rarely shows that in the photos of her it uses. Randall Miller, Ocean View, Del. - To respond to this letter, send an email to talkback@baltimoresun.com .

“You can't help but smile around a good cake!” says Tracy Quisenberry. An “icing smile,” she explains, is the special grin on the face of a child tucking into a big piece of frosted fantasy. Quisenberry is founder and executive director of Icing Smiles, a Howard County-based nonprofit whose purpose is to bring a free customized cake - and a special experience of joy - to kids suffering from life-threatening conditions. The organization's first cake was delivered by a volunteer baker in January 2010; six months later, the effort went viral, expanding yeastlike to today's more than 6,000 bakers across all 50 states, Canada and the Netherlands (with more in at least a dozen countries just waiting for requests)

Walter Fullwood strode up to the window of the Snowball Stand in Woodstock on a recent, steamy afternoon and handed over a bag of four "empties" before placing his carryout order. One of the stand's original customers, he has made weekly summer pilgrimages from his Ellicott City home of 42 years to the nearby rural spot since it opened in 1975. He has also made a habit of returning the cardboard containers as a courtesy. Fullwood requested four of the 101 varieties of the tasty treat Tuesday, including chocolate with a center of marshmallow for his wife, Marilyn, and plain vanilla for Winston, their 2-year-old Australian shepherd.

My time is short and so is yours, so why not tell the truth: A person can get along very well in life without one bit of the mathematics and physics they rammed into our brains in high school. Fifty years later, and there hasn't been a single moment when I've thought, "Oh if only I could remember higher algebra!" No, it isn't smarts, it's personal charm that propels you forward in this world and I, who grew up on the windswept godforsaken plains, know this for a fact. We Midwesterners have a charm deficit from day one and never catch up. Southerners have it in spades and many big city people and Texans and Unitarian women and Hispanic folks and black church ladies and hospital nurses and Jewish mothers, of course, but we prairie dogs are solemn and cold and people do not gravitate toward us and I, having been brought up fundamentalist, am a colder fish than most.

As the top Girl Scout cookie seller for Carroll County last year, Erin Saunders sold 1,004 boxes by smiling. Many of the sales were made from her home, as Erin had a cast on her ankle at the time, from a sprain. But when she was out selling, whether at cookie booths or at her bowling league, she made sure a smile was on her face, she said. "All I do is, every week, I go out and sell them and then I go to a bunch of cookie booths," Erin, 9, said, of her past success. "I ask people ...and smile.

A DOCUMENTARY photographer and ethnographer we know said she spent two years interviewing and taking pictures of the people who live on a single block in Hampden and who are famous locally for the enthusiasm they bring to the decoration of their houses at Christmas. During this season, the sidewalks of the 700 block of W. 34th St. are busy with smiling "tourists" from other parts of town; cars stream slowly by, their drivers and passengers gawking and grinning at all the glittery lights and the blood-bright faces of plastic Santa Clauses.

I DON'T KNOW about you, but I haven't said anything right in my house for a long time. My opinions are always unsolicited and inevitably unappreciated. No one cares what I think. But I can't seem to keep my mouth shut, and as a result, I am always in trouble with some member of my family. One harmless little comment from me about, oh, say, a wardrobe choice or a possible college major, and someone gets upset. Sheesh. What a prickly group. I was complaining to my friend Susan, the flight attendant, about the poor reception my comments get, when she flashed me a smile that would melt the chocolate bar in your pocket.

When Johns Hopkins women's lacrosse coach Janine Tucker talks about attacker Taylor D'Amore, she doesn't point to numbers in a record book or read a list of postseason awards. She reaches for a framed photo on a shelf in her office. D'Amore is hugging teammate Sammy Cermak after a win over Penn State at the American Lacrosse Conference tournament two years ago. Those moments of joy used to be fleeting for D'Amore, quickly replaced by a fierce intensity and businesslike approach. As a senior, she still has that intensity, but it's been tempered a bit. "Winning helps," D'Amore said with a laugh.

Sitting out Towson's march to the Football Championship Subdivision title game has been more agonizing for Leon Kinnard than the foot injury that ended the senior wide receiver's season two months ago. "It's more painful," Kinnard said Wednesday before the No. 7-seeded Tigers (13-2) left for Saturday's game against No. 1 seed and reigning back-to-back national champion North Dakota State (14-0) in Frisco, Texas. "I love this game. I've been playing this game since I was 7, and all of a sudden, it was taken away from me on one play.

Sounds like we'll be seeing Mika Brzezinski, the co-host of MSNBC's "Morning Joe," in Baltimore in the coming years. At least around parents' weekend. Brzezinski was all smiles this week when co-host Joe Scarborough asked her about her weekend. Why the grin, asked Scarborough — did she travel to the South of France? "No south of France. I was home being a mom. I'm a happy mom … . I have a kid in college. Early decision," she said. And where will her daughter attend?

The world has changed, but the world still needs a great meatball. I do not mean a meatball made from Kobe beef and retailing for $14. I certainly do not mean frozen supermarket meatballs. I mean a simple, delicious and comforting meatball that people make at home. Except that they don't. Americans think meatballs are so easy to make everyone must make them. Truth is, most people go years without making meatballs. So they go out to an Italian restaurant and ignore the meatball, thinking they have had them regularly at home or that money should be spent on something more current and exciting.

Josephine Grant never knows what she'll find at her doorstep when she comes home. The biggest surprise came when she returned from school one day last spring to a stack of 10 enormous cardboard boxes, each containing dozens of baby bottles. No one in her family could use them. But nearby, there was a great need for the bottles, and Grant knew what to do. This "hobby" of Grant's started when she was 13. "My little cousin was born with Goldenhar syndrome, was always in and out of the hospital, and never had anything to do while in there," she said.

On paper, infertility would seem a distasteful subject matter for light comedy. On screen, it only gets worse."A Smile Like Yours," featuring a terminally bland Greg Kinnear and a too precious Lauren Holly (both in "Sabrina"), is a massive miscalculation. The humor, straight out of a junior-high sex education class, is adolescent in its mockery of the truly embarrassing and painful procedures infertile couples endure. What could be funnier?Kinnear is Danny Robertson, the owner of a small construction company, and Holly is his wife, Jennifer, who sells perfumes as aroma-therapy.

Antwan Reddick leaned against the padded blue walls of the Owings Mills wrestling room and smiled. With a 26-1 record this season, the 152-pound senior hopes to win his third straight county title in this weekend's Baltimore County championships at Franklin. The first two came in Prince George's County while he wrestled at DuVal, and he finished as the Class 4A-3A runner-up last season at 138 pounds. Yet sometimes it's hard for him to smile. Since he was 5 years old, Reddick has been in foster care.

Ten years ago, a debilitating heart attack left Bernie Weisman unable to walk or talk, and yet the rabbi at his recent funeral said Bernie never had a bad day. With confidence the rabbi made that remark, having been assured by those closest to Bernie that the happy spirit he displayed for his first 55 years remained for the last 10. Such a spirit is not easily disabled. "At the end of his 65 years of life," Rabbi Dana Saroken of Beth El Congregation said at last month's funeral, "this is who Bernie was and who he always will be — a man who lit up the room wherever he was, a man who, despite any circumstances, never had a bad day, who smiled from morning until night; a man you could meet and within five minutes you would fall in love; the most generous and giving person who couldn't do enough for you, who never had an unkind word to say about anyone, who made time for everyone, and would even answer the phone lovingly — 'Hey doll!
