Doonesbury fans may have a hard time finding their favorite strip this week, as some newspapers shy away from Garry Trudeau's hard-edged lampooning of a Texas abortion law. In a week-long series , Trudeau takes direct aim at the law, which requires women to have an ultrasound procedure before an abortion. For some papers, phrases such as "slut" and "10-inch shaming wand" were a bit too hard to take. The harshest bit of dialogue may be the day-four bit comparing a transvaginal sonogram to rape.

With new Peruvian joints popping up just about every other week (or so it seems), the flavors of Latin and South America are all the rage. But just because they're trendy doesn't mean the cuisines of Latin countries are new to the Baltimore food scene. Tucked into an unremarkable strip mall in Woodlawn, Salsa Grill has been quietly and successfully cranking out quality Latin American food for more than two decades. Scene & Decor From the outside, Salsa Grill looks just like one more storefront in an average shopping center.

As California Chrome prepares to depart Baltimore early Tuesday, he'll do so with a clear path to run in the Belmont Stakes after New York officials ruled the Kentucky Derby and Preakness champion can wear a nasal strip to keep his airways clear in the third leg of the Triple Crown. California Chrome's chase for thoroughbred racing's signature achievement seemed briefly imperiled Sunday when trainer Art Sherman said a previous New York practice barring the strips might cause his colt to skip the Belmont Stakes on June 7. But New York officials acted quickly Monday to approve Sherman's request to use the adhesive, which California Chrome has worn throughout a six-race winning streak.

Nearly two months after People's Community Health Centers shut the doors to five low-income health clinics in Baltimore city and Anne Arundel County, a federal agency confirmed it is no longer providing critical grant money to the nonprofit group. People's had received $2.4 million a year from the Health Services Resources Administration to treat uninsured patients - its largest source of revenue. That loss comes as the organization faces a new federal tax lien nearly that doubled the amount it owes the Internal Revenue Service and mounting claims from employees seeking back pay. Yet Andrew Sindler, attorney for People's, said Monday the nonprofit hopes to pay off or settle its debts and has "some new opportunities in the works to revive the organization" under a new name and with new investors, though he declined to offer details.

Will Garfield become an animal-rights activist? Will the Teenage Mutant Ninja Turtles form a third political party? Will Nancy become a radical feminist and accuse Sluggo of sexual harassment?If there is little in the world that successfully resists change, the comics pages, it seems, are no exception. Reality increasingly colors the multi-paneled worlds of the imagination stuck inside hundreds of daily newspapers. King Features Syndicate, which distributes the Blondie comic strip, last week prepared its readers for the latest capitulation to modern custom: Dagwood Bumstead is not only giving notice to his tantrum-prone boss, Mr. Dithers, but is going to work for his wife, Blondie.

Sykesville officials have rezoned two narrow strips of land at Raincliffe Center for industrial use, a move that should make the site more marketable.The Town Council voted Monday to change the zoning of the strips from conservation to industrial to make them compatible with the rest of the tract. The strips make up less than an acre of the 32-acre property along Route 32 at Raincliffe Road."With that industrial zoning, you can almost build anything with the exception of residences," said Mayor Jonathan S. Herman.

THE BEST THING THAT CAN be said about the stretch of U.S. 40 that runs through Howard County? It's a legitimate piece of Americana.Like the age rings on an old oak, the sporadic, sometimes tasteless, development that has occurred along it marks a half-century of history. Yet even when indoor shopping malls came into vogue in the '70s and power centers this decade, with their orderliness and aesthetic appeal, the U.S. 40 corridor remained vibrant in spite of its sprawling tackiness.For those who live in communities along its side streets, there is much criticism about the congestion and general ugliness.

Gary Larson of "The Far Side" was the first to quit, last New Year's Day. Then, in the spring, Berke Breathed, who created "Bloom County" and later "Outland," announced that he, too, was through with comic strips.And tomorrow, the curtain will close on another of the most popular strips in newspapers, "Calvin & Hobbes," about the raucous antics of a 6-year-old boy and his stuffed tiger companion. After 10 years, Bill Watterson, the reclusive creator of "C&H," wants out.What gives? In one year, three comics superstars in the prime of their careers -- Mr. Larson is the oldest at 45 -- will have walked away from strips that are loved by millions and that earned them millions.

A couple months ago I came up with a chore/privilege board as a way to keep track of who's who in the job and privilege categories of daily life.For a sturdy chore board, we use:* 1 piece of white foam board, cut in an 18-by-9-inch rectangle* 6 adhesive-backed plastic hooks in bright colors* 6 metal rings* several plain index cards, cut in 1-by-5-inch strips with a hole punched at the top of each strip). If you have, say, two children and six categories, you will need 12 strips.* Markers and rulerDiscuss chores and privileges for a typical week, such as "set dinner table," "vacuum stairs," "choose Saturday bike route."

Sometimes the best flavors pop up in the least likely places - such as a strip mall on Route 175 near Fort Meade. That's where Bangkok Kitchen has done business for nearly 20 years. From the outside, the shopping center has seen better days. But don't let that stop you. Bangkok Kitchen's excellent Thai food is much more memorable than the building's rundown exterior would indicate. Serious foodies will recognize the area, too. Just down the street, Grace Garden has been making adventurous Chinese-food lovers drool for years.

The Sun's recent article regarding diabetes test strips ( "Resold diabetes strips cause health concern," May 31) ends with a quote asking the question, "...how can we get this important expense covered for patients so they don't have to feel they need to turn to an alternative?" Unfortunately, The Sun misses the most important point and that is: "How can test strips, literally made in the millions, cost so much at the retail level?" That is where the investigation should be directed.

On Charles Street, inside the Belvedere Galleria, a company run from a small office offers cash for people's leftover diabetes strips, the tiny tabs used to test glucose levels, which are crucial to managing the disease. An Internet search for "sell diabetes strips" turns up numerous websites offering to buy the strips via mail. The demand for more affordable strips — some brands cost $1 each and the typical testing regimen runs three times a day — has created what some call a "gray" market for reselling them.

This year's Kentucky Derby and Preakness Stakes have reminded America about what's great about horse racing. California Chrome has been a display of magnificence, and his story, and those of his trainer and owners, have been endearingly human. The mere possibility of the first Triple Crown winner in nearly four decades has rekindled the optimism that must be at the heart of every racing fan. But this year's Belmont Stakes has the potential to remind America about what's so maddening about horse racing.

"Mort Walker's Private Scrapbook: Celebrating a Life of Love and Laughter" by Mort Walker (Andrews McMeel Publishing, 323 pages, $29.95). If the United States had official National Living Cultural Treasures and also had a national sense of humor, Mort Walker surely would be high on the list. Beetle Bailey -- with Sarge and other archetypal military antiheroes -- lives on, apparently immortal. Hi and Lois still lead the pack of family comic strips -- neck and neck with Blondie and Dagwood.

Installing ceiling tiles is a fairly simple way to renew a badly deteriorated ceiling, or to give any ceiling an attractive finish during remodeling.Since some tiles also have acoustical or sound-deadening properties, the ceiling can have extra value. If installed on the ceiling of a family room under a bedroom, for example, the tiles can help absorb family-room noise that otherwise would reach the bedroom.When installing tiles for sound-deadening purposes, keep in mind that they are most effective for containing sound in the room where they are installed.

This quirky island, snug in the wine-dark northern Aegean Sea, came alive with tantalizing tales my grandmother spun when I was young. The narratives, some real, others not so much, were a balm. On school nights, they kept me up past my bedtime. Colorful characterizations of pirates and poverty; of mineral springs said to heal arthritis; and tales about Costa, a goat who wreaked havoc in her native village. Ikaria, I learned then, was also the birthplace of a humble dish called soufiko - a cocktail of fresh veggies crafted by cooks expert in the art of farm-to-table dining.
