CONSIDER the poor defenseless wrinkle. You know, those crinkles or -- gasp -- crevices on your face. Each laugh line and furrow tells a story: of lives lived, of happiness and sorrow, of pleasure and pain. It's a mere assertion that our futures are right there in the lines on the palms of our hands; it's far more certain that we wear our pasts on our faces. We must hate that. The numbers of us getting injections of Botox -- an apparently safe form of the toxin that causes botulism but also temporarily removes facial lines -- have been skyrocketing the last few years.

Let's start with this: Don't expect the Ravens to put up 60 points Sunday. Don't expect Joe Flacco to take endless shots downfield to Torrey Smith and Jacoby Jones. Don't expect Anquan Boldin to suddenly run wild in the middle of the field off a lot of intricate rub routes. Don't expect a lot of razzle-dazzle plays involving Ray Rice. Or for the Ravens to march down up and down the field in the no-huddle offense as if they had they invented it. Bottom line? Don't expect this team to suddenly morph into The Greatest Show on Synthetic Fiber Turf.

New "Columbo" episodes usually don't offer much reason for comment. What's the point? After 24 years and 59 cases, we know the routine.We see an elaborately planned murder. We know who the murderer is. When our sloppy hero finally shows up, we try to guess how he will catch the supremely smug and confident killer.Well, here's a real mystery for you. Why would Peter Falk completely revamp the successful "Columbo" formula that has been working since he started playing the wrinkled-raincoat detective in the 1968 TV movie "Prescription: Murder"?

The news broke this afternoon that the Los Angeles Angels have agreed to a five-year, $125 million deal, pending a physical, with talented but troubled slugger Josh Hamilton. As a baseball writer, my first reaction was this: Maybe commissioner Bud Selig should enact a new realignment that creates a division just for the Angels and Los Angeles Dodgers. They play each other 162 times a year (it would cut down on travel expenses, which would help pay the enormous salaries) and the winner gets a playoff spot.

Next time you travel, try using plastic dry-cleaner bags to keep clothes from getting crushed. Cut the bags into shapes suitable for blouses, sweaters, etc. Then fold the clothes over the bags. You'll find they trap enough air to prevent wrinkling. And pack extras; they come in handy for storing wet bathing suits and dirty laundry.* In some cases -- with knit pants, for example -- it's easier to roll the pants and plastic together. This takes up less room and is a guarantee against creases.

Q: I have recently begun traveling a lot for my job. From your experience, can you give me some packing tips to ensure that my clothes will still look professional when I reach the hotel?A: The longer your trip, the more important are the items that travel with you in your carry-on bag. Your checked-on suitcase may wind up in Tulsa, but your hand is firmly on your carry-on bag as you deplane in Houston. Business travel is stressful enough without adding worries about luggage.My most anxiety-avoiding nugget of advice is to wear (or carry with you)

Kurt Warner backed away from center, unsnapped his chin strap and looked disgustedly toward the sideline. For that, the St. Louis Rams quarterback deserved an Oscar. What he got instead was more important - a first down that led to a touchdown. In a moment of deception worthy of Hollywood's finest, Warner was merely acting. While he pretended to pout, running back Marshall Faulk took a direct snap from center and ran 4 yards for a first down in a Week 13 game against San Francisco. It was another in a long line of trick plays that underscore this anything-goes season.

You've got clothes that make you look good and clothes that make you feel good. Until recently, that was about all your clothes were good for. But the latest thing in apparel is clothes that do something.auertersdiufaposidufpoaisudofi With all the advancements in technology, it was bound to happen. Today your clothes aren't just adjective-worthy, they're full of action verbs. Your tie can fight spills. Your shirts repel stains. Your suits will ward off wrinkles. Your pants laugh in the face of shrinking or fading.

For Susie Hilfiger Clapp, Botox has nothing to do with ironing unwanted wrinkles. The 51-year-old multiple sclerosis patient from Connecticut gets injections of the toxin every few months to help her relax her clenched hand and release the tension in her toes. "I really had a hard time keeping my hand and arm from going into that cradled position," said the former nurse, who is the sister of clothing designer Tommy Hilfiger. "Now I can clap my hands. I can turn pages. ... It helps me bend my knee and it keeps my toes from curling.

As the Baltimore Ravens and PSINet Inc. representatives closed in on a deal yesterday that could allow the team to resell the name on the city's football stadium, the Maryland Stadium Authority said it does not plan to contest the team's regaining the naming rights. "The lease says that the team shall have the right to resell. ... It's there," said Alison L. Aste, general counsel for the agency that operates the football and baseball complex at Camden Yards. According to the stadium lease, "The team shall have the right ... to sell naming rights to the football stadium, and all revenues therefrom shall be paid to the team."

As heavy rains pounded the turf at Morgan State's Hughes Stadium during Saturday's media day, talk inside the Bears' locker room centered on finding ways to lift the fog from an offense that in 2010 ranked dead last in the 117-team NCAA Football Championship Subdivision. For a squad that averaged just over 216 yards per game a year ago, that task isn't likely to be easy. But 10th-year head coach Donald Hill-Eley believes a few new wrinkles in the Bears' multiple spread offense could make all the difference with the season-opener at Towson just three weeks away.

I've always been in favor of making the most of who I am, living every day to the fullest, and being the best I can be. That's why I exercise, drink a lot of water, and write topic sentences that sound like a blend of advertising for Geritol and the United States Army. But I'm becoming increasing aggravated by the constant cosmetic-surgery messaging directed primarily at women — urging us to plump our lips, ease our wrinkles and lift our eyebrows — right on up to the advanced age when we'll need to use a wheelchair on the way into the operating room as well as on the way out. Oh, I've thought about cosmetic surgery, to be sure.

While the players were slapping high-fives and the city was buzzing about innovative play-calling, Ravens offensive coordinator Cam Cameron seemed embarrassed by the attention. That's because Cameron understands the basics of the game so well. You can fool teams only so often, and when it comes to playoff time, it's all about fundamentals and game-breakers. It's a time when the frauds are exposed. "I want the guys to play hard, I want them to be excited," Cameron said. "But I don't want them to forget what we're about and what we need to do to win games.

Get ready for another tricky tax season. Some last-minute tax legislation by Congress has once more turned something predictable and tedious into something that's confusing and, well, tedious. This time, it waited so long to pass legislation to stop the spread of the alternative minimum tax that the IRS hasn't fully updated its systems yet. Millions of taxpayers who file certain forms must wait until Feb. 11 to get their returns processed. That's sure to delay some refunds. On the upside, Congress created new tax breaks for homeowners.

BOSTON -- And so we gather to praise the old feminazi hunter himself. Rush Limbaugh has single-handedly brushed aside the blinding snow on the windshield and let us have another clear view of the double standard running down this campaign highway. This week, Mr. Limbaugh offered a lengthy monologue about an unflattering photo of Hillary Rodham Clinton in the New Hampshire cold. He ended by asking the question: "Will this country want to actually watch a woman get older before their eyes on a daily basis?"

There's nothing more important than your health. It sounds like something a parent would say. But, now, many employers seem to be just as concerned. This fall during open enrollment, the period when workers can re-elect or pick new company benefits, you may find several changes in health-plan options, all stressing healthier lifestyles - and fewer costly claims. "Companies want to get employees more involved in managing their health care," said Scott Ziemba, a senior consultant at Watson Wyatt Worldwide Inc., a human resources consulting firm.

In the last year or two, linen's uses have extended far beyond tablecloths. Designers are using it for draperies and slipcovers. Manufacturers are upholstering chairs and sofas in it.When the experts explain linen's appeal, they usually talk about its "hand" -- that comfortable, almost sensual texture. People want their homes to have a warm, lived-in feel; you could argue that linen's soft wrinkles are a plus, not a minus.There's an interest in ecology and natural looks. Linen's subtle, neutral shades have a casual elegance that sets just the right tone.

Bambi is out to kill you. The adorable little fawn has grown up to be several hundred pounds of embittered, suicidal venison - holding you personally responsible for what those nasty hunters did to his mama. He's on a mission from the Deer God to break through your windshield and land in your lap. This is all nonsense, of course, but this is the season when it would be wise to drive as if it were literally true. The October-to-December period is the peak of mating season, when deer become even more loopy than at other times of year.

Kobe Bryant picked a great time to go on the greatest run of NBA scoring prowess since Wilt Chamberlain more than 40 years earlier - right in the middle of March Madness. Bryant, who 11 years ago had the audacity to skip college in favor of the NBA, scored 50 or more points in four straight games before his streak ended last night. He somehow managed it - and managed three NBA championships - without the prior influence of Coach K, and without Dickie V narrating a second of his post-high school career.
