In Harold Pinter's “The Caretaker,” men who seem to have empty centers where their hearts should be engage in a strange dance involving intimidation and entitlement. In David Mamet's “Glengarry Glen Ross,” which the playwright dedicated to Pinter, men with voids where their morals should be thrash about in a desperate game that also involves intimidation and entitlement. These are two very different works, to be sure, but they share some gritty elements, pose similarly tough questions about human nature, and leave us with similarly elusive answers.

The Baltimore branch of the National Association for the Advancement of Colored People appears to have elected a city social services officials as its president this week, making Tessa Hill-Aston the first woman to serve in the top local office in almost 30 years. A final tally of votes was not available Wednesday, but early results showed Hill-Aston leading her opponent, former longtime branch president G.I. Johnson, by large margins.
