The University of Maryland Baltimore County, which celebrates its 25th anniversary today, is proof that an institution has a life of its own, sometimes outlasting and outperforming the people who operate it.Back in 1966, Mayor McKeldin and Del. Julian Lapides were right: The state put economy ahead of sensible planning when it opted for building an undergraduate campus on state-owned land in Catonsville instead of downtown, next to the university's professional...

Every Tuesday heralds the arrival of special or collector's DVD editions of movies, and this week is no exception with four anniversary editions of vintage films. The Blues Brothers - 25th Anniversary Edition (Universal, $23) includes the original theatrical and extended versions of the musical comedy starring John Belushi and Dan Aykroyd as the "legendary" Chicago brothers Jake and Elwood Blues - characters they introduced on Saturday Night Live. The musical numbers, which feature singers such as Aretha Franklin, Ray Charles and James Brown, are spectacular, but the comedy is overblown.

In the age of American Idol and other superficial searches for talent (now downgraded to include a willingness to do disgusting things for the chance to win lots of money), a competition aimed at determining the best classical pianist out of a multinational field may seem rather quaint. And a top prize of $20,000 may seem puny, compared with the bucks dangled in front of "reality" contestants roughing it in some exotic locale with a TV crew in tow. But there's still value to be had in a good old-fashioned, genuine competition among young, gifted musicians with dreams of concert careers.
