Once again, witness the tail wagging the dog in our "special" relationship with Israel ("Too much, too fast for peace?" Oct. 7). In an effort to keep alive a moribund peace process, the U.S. is groveling before Israel attempting to appease a client state with favors so that Prime Minister Benjamin Netanyahu will extend a moratorium on the expansion of illegal settlements. But this, in effect, validates existing settlements on Palestinian land because these are not addressed. For any meaningful resolution of the conflict, the U.S. has to be a more impartial mediator.

Make plans to spend Sunday at the B&O Railroad Museum in downtown Baltimore for a great day of trains, history, and adoptable dogs. Bella's Bully Buddies dog rescue, which finds homes for pit bulls in need, will hold its Rails & Trails event from 11 a.m. to 4 p.m., and all are invited for family fun and maybe the chance to add to that family. The rescue will host Choo Choo Blue, the museum's mascot, along with family and pet-friendly vendors, a dog-training demonstration, carnival games and prizes, a coloring and stamping station, live entertainment, a moon bounce, and a chalk and bubble fun station, too. Admission is just $1 and includes parking and museum admission.

Icy and snowy conditions along with heavy rain could snarl traffic and complicate air travel in Maryland and many parts of the eastern United States on Tuesday and Wednesday — two of the biggest travel days of the year as people head home for Thanksgiving. A wintry mix of snow or sleet and freezing rain could disrupt the Tuesday morning commute, turning to a heavy, cold rain along the Interstate 95 corridor into Wednesday. Before it's over, cold air rushing in behind the storm could produce a flourish of wet snow showers Wednesday evening, forecasters said.

As one potential Kentucky Derby favorite dealt with the changing color of his tail, another breezed to probably the most impressive win of the prep season over the weekend. Hansen, the white colt and 6-5 favorite at the Blue Grass Stakes, finished second after having dye applied to -- and then washed out of -- his tail. The bizarre mini-controversy overshadowed Dulluhan's stirring charge over the last three furlongs . Under Kent Desormeaux, the Dale Romans-trained colt went from 10th to first and set a new stakes record on Keeneland's Polytrack.  At the Arkansas Derby, late-comer Bodemeister overwhelmed the field, racing out from the No. 11 post and taking an early lead.

The stuff was being used by humans.Mane 'n Tail shampoo, made by Straight Arrow, was one of the first to come flying out of the gate, spurred on by tips and stable gossip.

When he reached the other side he was very thirsty.He saw a pail of milk that an old woman had set down while she gathered wood for her fire. Before she noticed the fox, he had lapped up most of the milk.The woman became so angry that she grabbed her knife and chopped off his tail, and the fox began to cry."

Scientists have plenty of questions about a bizarre asteroid spotted spouting what looks like six comet-like tails, but they are nevertheless giving the public an opportunity to make their own queries about it. Researchers are holding a Google Hangout on Thursday to talk about the discovery, including how and when the asteroid was discovered, what its six tails are made of, and how common such asteroids are in space. The Baltimore-based Space Telescope Science Institute and NASA released images of the asteroid last Thursday . It was found by astronomers observing the solar system's asteroid belt using the Hubble Space Telescope.

Every day at 4 p.m., the Labragator follows me around the house and stares me in the eye, throwing in the occasional whimper just in case I didn't notice the 96 pounds of black dog in my face. That, you see, is the beginning of her afternoon routine. Outside for a potty break at 4, dinner at 4:45 (or earlier if she can annoy me enough that I give in), and then immediately to the front door to wait for my husband to get home. The waiting has become my favorite part. She lays just inside our storm door on a throw rug that's just her size (can you say “spoiled rotten Labragator?

"Red Tails," the years-long project of director George Lucas, is sure to bring some overdue attention to the Tuskegee Airmen, the all-black aviation unit that fought discrimination in the U.S. military as well as our enemies in World War II. Reviews for the movie have not been outstanding, but I'm looking forward to seeing it anyway. (Then again, I've watched "The Longest Day" over and over.)  According to a National Park Service history of the Airmen, before 1940, blacks were barred from flying for the U.S. military.
