An African-American woman is alleging she was fired from the Baltimore Inner Harbor Hooters' restaurant for having an "unnatural" hair color, according to a complaint filed with Maryland Commission on Civil Rights. Farryn Johnson, 25, claims her supervisors said her blond highlights violated the appearance policy for "Hooters Girls," according to her attorney, Jessica P. Weber of Brown, Goldstein & Levy LLP. When Johnson pointed out that other waitresses had obviously dyed hair -- an Asian-American woman had bright red hair and a white woman had black hair with platinum highlights -- her supervisors said her hair was "not natural" because she was African-American, according to the complaint.

"We need to understand what circumstances led to this incident," said an archdiocese spokesman ("Archdiocese investigating priest: He's suspended indefinitely after arrest on charges of indecent exposure," Jan. 24). Celibacy, that unnatural restriction, is forced on clergymen by the male-dominated Vatican. That's what led to these circumstances. Until the Catholic Church understands that it must change, these circumstances will lead other clergy to expose the church to embarrassment as a result of their natural desires.

The first time I saw an espaliered peach tree spread-eagled against a brick wall, I was shocked. It was so unnatural. The branches had been pinioned in place and forced to adhere to an arbitrary growth habit that seemed vaguely akin to footbinding. But I was also fascinated. Flattening the tree into a two-dimensional shape was just so practical. The south-facing wall against which it was trained absorbed the sun's heat, thereby extending the growing season. The single-plane branching meant that all leaves and fruit are exposed to sunlight, which significantly increases per-square-foot production.
