I'll match my patriotism with anybody's. You say "America," I get a lump in the throat. You sing "God Bless America," I'm reaching for hankies. Every time I see the Statue of Liberty, I tell my family, "There's our girl." But, on the issue of kids in a classroom not standing up to salute the flag, I pledge allegiance to those refusing to pledge allegiance. To me, that's the American way. And America still includes the state of Maryland, a fact that apparently comes as news to some of our public school teachers, who wish to create marionettes instead of citizens.

It's an experience all too familiar for Ricktor and others who frequent the bar scene in Fells Point."It's really hard to get a taxi around here," Ricktor said.

LOS ANGELES -- Laurence M. Powell, the Los Angeles police officer who delivered the majority of baton blows against black motorist Rodney G. King, rested his case without taking the witness stand, a surprise development that rocked the civil rights trial of the officers.Officer Powell's lawyer, Michael P. Stone, has said for weeks that Officer Powell would take the stand in his own defense and announced as late as Tuesday that Officer Powell would be a witness. But lawyers for the other officers have expressed misgivings about Officer Powell's testifying, and during a meeting Tuesday the attorneys agreed that, despite Officer Powell's strong desire to testify, he should not take the stand.

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.

Dr. Michael Ain stands 4 feet 3. It's the first thing you notice. There's no way around it. He rolls his green surgical pants around the ankles. He climbs a step-stool to reach the operating table. Even then, his colleagues stand a foot or so above him.He's an orthopedic surgeon, a specialty usually reserved for the jocks of medicine. Ain doesn't exactly fit the stereotype, but he did wrestle in high school, and now he golfs on weekends and fixes bones with big power tools that could tear down walls.

Alex Scott died last summer, just when most of the horses in today's Preakness were beginning careers as 2-year-olds. Hope springs eternal for promising 2-year-old thoroughbreds. But for Alex, who was found to have cancer two days before her first birthday, hope ended Aug. 1 when she was 8. For 7 1/2 years, she had fought bravely through six surgeries and seemingly endless radiation and chemotherapy. When Alex was 4, she told her parents she wanted to operate a lemonade stand in her front yard to raise money to help find a cure for childhood cancer.

The stand appears at the edge of a driveway along Pleasantville Road. It is a small, round patio table laden with fat tomatoes, green peppers, eggplant, beets and summer squash that Michael Donhauser has spent the past few months nurturing from seed to harvest. Donhauser, a retired grocery store manager, spends hours each day puttering in the two garden plots he cultivates behind his tidy Fallston home and his son's house across the two-lane road. He weeds and waters, plants and picks, tills and toils.
