But these greasers slicked back their hair with styling gel, not Vitalis.Eighth-grade students at Arundel Middle took a trip to the past Friday as they attended their first, and probably last, sock hop dance. The dance was the culmination of the students' lesson on the era stretching from the 1950s to the mid-1960s.

IT MAKES SENSE, I think, to write like a curmudgeon only when I'm not feeling like one, hoping that various inquiries will come off as wry shared humor, rather than whining. Since, on balance, my life is just jim-dandy at the moment, I'll indulge in a few said inquiries, and perhaps even get some answers.1. Why, if we can send men to the moon and women to long-term duty on a Russian space station, can't we make an ice scraper that makes contact with the windshield all across the blade, instead of only at the corners?

A little political insightPERHAPS IT was a moment of self-doubt. Or a sudden perspective on a life's work. Maybe he just lost his place while reading from his prepared speech.But in the middle of his half-hour-long remarks to a hundred housing officials recently, County Executive John G. Gary stopped abruptly, rested his hand on the podium and said, "You know, I ran for office 12 years ago because I was so angry with government being so intrusive into my business."A few people in the audience looked around, wondering what this had to do with the county's lack of affordable housing.
