A second Baltimore police officer has been charged in the death of a dog whose throat was allegedly slit by another officer, but the city police union says both officers didn't have the tools they needed to do their job and shouldn't be charged. Thomas Schmidt, a 24-year veteran of the department, has been suspended without pay, department spokeswoman Lt. Sarah Connolly said. He had been on paid administrative leave since last week. Police say Schmidt held down Nala, a 7-year-old Shar-Pei, while Officer Jeffrey Bolger slit the dog's throat June 14. According to online court records, Schmidt was charged Thursday with aggravated animal cruelty, animal cruelty, and malfeasance in office.

A Baltimore police officer slit the throat of a dog officers had under control and now faces felony animal cruelty charges, the department said Wednesday. Police Deputy Commissioner Dean Palmere called the killing "outrageous and unacceptable" and said internal affairs is investigating the incident, which took place Saturday morning in Brewers Hill. Baltimore City Councilman Robert W. Curran, council liaison to the Mayor's Anti-Animal Abuse Advisory Commission, said there was no reason to have killed the dog if it was restrained with a dog-control pole, as police say it was. "It's pretty astounding that our public safety officers would ever have done this," Curran said.

EVERY FEB. 3, ROMAN Catholics celebrate the feast of St. Blaise by having their throats blessed. It's never been a big day on the Catholic calendar -- the kind that meant a day off from school -- but it is a ritual that has staying power.The way we honor this ancient bishop of Asia Minor has always impressed me as the most practical of ceremonies. Why not ask for a blessing on your throat during the season of colds and flu?The ritual carries a certain realism. A vested priest holds a pair of pure beeswax candles tied in an X -- often with a scarlet ribbon -- and you place your throat between them as he says the blessing.

Dynamic Impact's connections weren't sure what they had entering the April 19 Illinois Derby.

Theater-goers who have been pining for a revival of "Miss Saigon," the musical that gave the creators of "Les Miserables" a follow-up hit that ran for a decade in London and New York, will be happy to know that Signature Theatre has obliged. For anyone wondering why a great company would pour so much energy and resources into a work of such epic banality, this new, intermittently impressive production is a little less thrilling. We naysayers appear to be in a minority, I hasten to add. Even before last weekend's official opening, the run was extended.
