Rayford Dean stood in a long, winding line of people waiting for Thanksgiving groceries at St. John Baptist Church in Columbia. The 48-year-old works as a truck driver, he said, but he was recently divorced and needed help to provide a holiday meal for his three children, so he took an early lunchtime and waited Tuesday with dozens of others. "It means I can actually do a Thanksgiving dinner," he said. "Without it, we'd just have spaghetti. " Hundreds of needy Howard County families got bags of Thanksgiving food and related products in two distribution programs Monday night and Tuesday in Columbia.

We're looking for Marylanders who've made a ritual of eating their turkey and trimmings with friends rather than family - perhaps the same ones every year. Or maybe you're the one who hosts a group of friends or co-workers. We'd like to interview you for a story about how friends create holiday rituals at a traditional "family" time. E-mail email@example.com with your name, phone number and a brief synopsis of your annual ritual by Friday. Please put "Thanksgiving with friends" in the subject line.

President Bush was at snow-covered Camp David, reveling in news stories reporting how crowds in Prague were marching for democracy, led by a playwright and former political prisoner, Vaclav Havel, who was destined to become president of Czechoslovakia.
