Not having much opportunity to hear how the Young People talk (my Loyola students tend toward taciturnity), I was intrigued to hear a new usage this morning on the campus shuttle bus.  "Did you see that crazy guy on the sidewalk? I was really sketched out by that," I overheard a young woman say.  I surmise that to be sketched out  is extended from the vogue for sketchy , which Merriam-Webster lists as meaning "questionable" or "iffy," as in the phrase "a sketchy character.

Amanda Knox and Casey Anthony. Comely, 20-something, white women accused of horrible crimes, convicted by a salacious press but freed by the courts. Yet Ms. Knox flew home from Italy to Seattle to welcoming ceremonies, tears of relief, and the warm embrace of family and friends, while Ms. Anthony left her Florida jail cell under cover of darkness and went into hiding out of fear for her life. She is estranged from her family and said to be without a friend in the world. Ms. Knox was called a "Luciferina" and a "she-devil" and accused of participating in the throat-slashing murder of her virginal British roommate in Perugia, where both were exchange students, as part of some kind of crazed sex game.

On the eve of her 21st birthday, a young woman leaving the local Howard County foster care system after nine placements/homes was welcomed to her first apartment by eight local residents and two truckloads of used but sturdy furniture. Her housewarming was courtesy of Fostering Futures: An initiative of Voices for Children, Howard County's court-appointed special advocates. Fostering Futures Howard County seeks to develop a community network using the internet and other means to support youth aging out of foster care.

She has no name. She's known only as 05-730560. "This is everything we've got," said Anne Arundel County Police Detective John Gajda, plunking down a plastic box that holds folders of what's known about the young woman with reddish brown hair — which isn't much — and her investigation. Gajda keeps the box at his desk in Crownsville, 17 miles from where children found her decomposing body at the northern tip of the county five and a half years ago. The woman's remains are kept in the Office of the Chief Medical Examiner in Baltimore.

Her daughter disowned her as a devil-worshiping witch. Police didn't believe her allegations of brainwashing. And social services said they weren't equipped to deal with a cult. But Seeta Newton still would not let her grandson Javon go. Her dreams pushed her to hold on. In one, the infant boy clings to Newton's neck while his mother, Ria, floats toward them, her arms spread wide, gown sleeves hanging like angel wings. Javon whispers insistently in Newton's ear: I want to come live where you live.

My little girl was born within a week of Christmas and, believe you me, conceiving one to hatch on target like that is no simple task. It takes planning and biotechnology, and the male is force-fed raw oysters, and the female must hang upside down in a dark room for hours. I was 55 at the time and remember it well. This bonus baby was the last grandchild in my family, a last attempt to breed some frivolity and high-spiritedness into our somber Anglo line, and we seem to have succeeded.

Miriam Deborah Frankl wore midnight blue nail polish, teased her two younger brothers and looked forward to the change in seasons so she could finally pair those brown boots with that purple jacket. Those were among the memories that speakers shared at a memorial Tuesday for the 20-year-old Johns Hopkins University neuroscience student who was killed in a hit-and-run last month, painting a portrait of a confident and charismatic young woman. The junior was a third-generation scientist, a sorority sister and the best friend that some ever had. "Miriam was a remarkable woman," said her aunt, Rebecca German, a professor at the Hopkins School of Medicine.
