Your editorial lauding President Obama's call for a balanced approach to spending and taxes rings hollow indeed ("Shared sacrifice," Sept. 20). The president's supporters and apologists have little left to cling to other than abstract phrases and themes from his speeches. We all know that's exactly what his jobs plan and his deficit reduction plans are: Just speeches. The jobs plan he outlined to Congress weeks ago hasn't yet made its way to a vote. Meanwhile he travels the country accusing the Republicans of obstructing a plan that can't be voted on. His deficit reduction plan is the same thing: A campaign speech.

Y ears from now, or maybe merely hours from now, they'll merge into one indiscernible blob, the collagen-ed lips of one blurring into the coy glances of another, their slightly funny names interchangeable. We won't remember exactly which scandalette belonged to which eager face splashed for a time seemingly everywhere. Was Jamie Jungers the White House party crasher, or a Tiger Woods inamorata? Was Balloon Boy's mom Michaele Salahi or Mayumi Heene? And which one was trying to get on "Real Housewives of Washington, D.C.," and which one already had been on "Wife Swap" but was hungering for another reality show gig?

Many of us are trying to eat more fish these days because we know it's healthful, but somehow, there never seem to be enough easy recipes for cooking it. There's always the "broil-it-with-a-dab-of-butter" technique, but that treatment can get boring quickly.Here is a simple, fast and efficient fish dish that makes use of a pantry staple -- canned salmon. (Yes, canned salmon or tuna still is a good way to get the great nutrients from fish.)In fact, all of the ingredients in the fish cakes are items you probably keep on hand.

First we discovered pasta (as opposed to spaghetti), then moved on to tiramisu, osso buco and polenta. Americans have gone bonkers for Italian food.Now we've found the world's best way to sop up the sauce -- focaccia.The Genoan flat bread is chewy and aromatic, about as far removed from sandwich bread as sauce Bolognese is from Ragu. Restaurants -- even non-Italian -- have been offering it in bread baskets and using it for high-class sandwiches. It also turns up as an appetizer with toppings of herbs, black olives, tomatoes and cheese.

A waterspout zipped across Baltimore harbor Monday afternoon, tossing pieces of a warehouse roof into the air, and at least one other tornado was reported in the area as storms brought heavy downpours and flooding. In Fells Point, cars sat in standing water and sandbags were placed at doors to prevent water from entering businesses. In the Inner Harbor, 1.74 inches of rain had fallen by 5 p.m. - all but a half-inch of it in the span of an hour before 4 p.m. Steve Fogleman, a Glen Burnie attorney and chairman of the Baltimore liquor board, was driving north on Interstate 95 just south of the Fort McHenry tunnel a little before 4 p.m. when he noticed a rotating cloud and something whipping through the air near Silo Point.

Roland Park neighbors trotted out their tried-and-true Fourth of July recipe Monday: Combine kids, dogs, politicians and parents with cameras. And then just add water. For this long-established tradition, the water was provided by a pair of city Fire Department trucks, which led the crowd of several hundred friends and family members on a three-block "parade," and then turned on their hoses to create a giant sprinkler under which the children — and some adults — danced. "It is wonderful," said Keats Smith, who watched from a safe distance as the kids got soaked.

Sitting in the visitors' dugout, Davey Johnson looked out over the park that used to be home, took a deep breath and grinned. It had been 15 years, but Johnson was finally managing again in Camden Yards. "Feels good to be back," said Johnson, now the manager of the Washington Nationals, before Friday night's series opener against the Orioles. "Little different view from this angle," he added. Different view, same landmarks. There, in the dugout across the field, that's where Johnson watched his final game wearing an Orioles cap. Over the right field wall, that's where Tony Fernandez launched his series-clinching home run in the top of the 11th inning, breaking a scoreless tie for the Cleveland Indians in Game 6 of the 1997 American League Championship Series.

Q. I read in your column about a nondrug treatment for toenail fungus. Could you please send me the home remedy since I now have fungus myself? The prescription my doctor offered is way too expensive.A. Over the years we have collected lots of remedies for nail fungus. This infection can make nails thick, rough, yellowish-brown and crumbly. Our favorite approach is a vinegar soak -- 1 part vinegar to 2 parts warm water.Q. I took Zocor for high cholesterol and stopped because it caused me to have seizures.

PRESIDENT BUSH is peeved at Democrats in Congress for misleading Americans about taxes and saying he is a pal of the rich.He says, "They've been getting away with this tax-the-rich class warfare kind of garbage that they always resurrect at election time."Well, of course they have. But as a politician, President Bush should recognize it might be just garbage, but it is extremely effective garbage. And it almost never fails. Congressional Democrats will be swept back into office next week.
