It is a strange procession indeed, this group of Army medics on a seemingly endless tour of Odenton and Fort Meade.The men are carrying a stretcher with a dummy on board. An Army ambulance trails slowly. Every few minutes or so, like a volleyball team, the soldiers rotate positions."People stare at us," said medical specialist James Cose. "They must be saying, 'What the hell are they doing over there?' They probably think we're lunatics."These eight members of the 85th Medical Battalion are trying to get into the Guinness Book of World Records by carrying a stretcher, weighed down with 140 pounds of sand, for 150 miles, the equivalent of going from Baltimore to Ocean City.

Like the hundreds of thousands of people who were at Woodstock, Bob Somers has stories. But he's one of the few who also left with a T-shirt, a red one he lucked into and held onto even as he changed from a 19-year-old who skinny-dipped with strangers in the rain into a guy with a government job, a wife he met through golfing, two docile dogs and a tract house in a Columbia subdivision. Over the past 40 years, that red shirt became a a link to a mystical weekend and a reminder that no matter how respectable, conservative — or, heck, ordinary — he comes to look on the outside, inside there's a shaggy-haired kid who just wants to make the world a better place.

On the heels of a sharp rise in the number of calls to help obese people, the Baltimore County Fire Department has acquired new equipment to accommodate such patients: a larger, sturdier stretcher and a ramp and winches to pull it into medical vehicles. The new equipment -- which cost about $16,000 -- was on display yesterday, as county fire officials explained that the number of calls for bariatric patients has risen eightfold in the past five years, up to as many as 40 annually. But more than just providing a needed practical capability, the equipment affords a more respectful way to serve obese patients, said Joseph Brown, director of EMS for the county fire department.

COLORADO SPRINGS, Colo. -- The primary objective for the top U.S. skaters at Four Continents Figure Skating Championships is to get through two injury-free performances. There is nothing at stake here and little to gain except for more competitive ice time before the World Championships in Tokyo next month. That was brought home yesterday during the pairs long program, when Canadian champion Jessica Dube was struck under the left eye by the blade of her partner Bryce Davison during side-by-side flying camel spins.

We moved back from Moscow a year ago, and there are lots of things I miss about the place: the sardonic humor, Baltika beer, the cold snap that comes in late August. But one thing I never expected to feel nostalgic about, and certainly do, is Russian culture's healthy skepticism about the value of always telling the truth. Lies, of course, can be despicable things. But in the West, the gentle art of deception - the flamboyant, shameless or spiritually uplifting stretcher - has long since fallen out of fashion.
