Gift Guide 2004: The Funniest Ever

Dear Bay Weekly:
Oh my! What did my wondering eyes read in your Dec. 16 issue [Vol. VXX, No. 51]? The funniest secret-Santa letter ever published.

In City Dock Cafe, I was lucky enough to still grab a copy. I immediately became engrossed in the witty prose; luckily one child was strapped into his car seat for I didn't even realize he had fallen asleep. The other was fully taken up with a bagel, which was a good thing because he could have run amuck as Mama faded into Bay Weekly heaven.

Betsy Kehne is so funny with her tales of triplets! But I do believe this year's prize must go to Fabio himself, Mark Burns.

Has Bill Burton Held a Wolf by the Ears?

Dear Bay Weekly:
I really enjoyed reading on-line Bill Burton's piece encouraging young readers in which he used the line "cave ab homine unius libri" [Vol. 12, No. 12: March 18]. Although I translate the line as “Beware of the man who reads only one book," it has been my maxim for the last 60 years since I was a young man.

Bill's interpretation holds true for the young and innocent, but at a more profound level the man who only wants to read one book is indeed to be feared.

I would like to read how Bill explains the expression holding a wolf by the ears.

Seeking Spiritual Vibrations

Dear Bay Weekly:
In your Vol. 6, No. 31 edition [August 6, 1998] there was an article titled “Old Ways and School Days: Shady Side School Reunites" about a reunion where a gospel group called The Spiritual Vibrations performed. I once saw this group perform at Annapolis Harbour Center and thought they were great! I got a business card from the group, but lost it soon after. I have searched the Internet for months (years) for information on the group and found your site. I also found something about a group by the same name in Iowa, but I believe they must be a different group. Could you please tell me anything about this group and how I may contact them. If not, could you tell me who was the organizer of the reunion so I may get in touch with them?

Frank Bowlby, Glen Burnie: cmsgtfrank@aol.com

Editor's note: We checked the article, made a call and gave Mr. Bowlby a referral. In reply he wrote: Thanks very much for your help! Within an hour, a member of the group called me. He said they live near Shady Side and would send me their card so I can keep up with their schedule.
