Sometimes the best flavors pop up in the least likely places - such as a strip mall on Route 175 near Fort Meade. That's where Bangkok Kitchen has done business for nearly 20 years. From the outside, the shopping center has seen better days. But don't let that stop you. Bangkok Kitchen's excellent Thai food is much more memorable than the building's rundown exterior would indicate. Serious foodies will recognize the area, too. Just down the street, Grace Garden has been making adventurous Chinese-food lovers drool for years.

WASHINGTON -- Before Paul Simon retires from the Senate in a couple of years, he intends to board up the back door to the Alamo.Simon, a Democratic liberal from Illinois, has for some years tried to get Congress to pass a constitutional amendment that would force it to balance the federal budget.The heart of the amendment is simple: "Total outlays for any fiscal year shall not exceed receipts for that fiscal year."But, as one pundit put it, the concept sends shivers down Congress' spine -- or would if it had one.Congress can balance the budget without an amendment.

Psychiatric self-interest groups have tried for years to force insurance companies to cover the treatment of mental illness and addiction. Treating depression as well as disturbing and sometimes simple problems in living on the same level as cancer, heart disease and diabetes is the essence of what has come to be known as "parity." Now, through political legerdemain, this government-mandated coverage has just become law as an amendment attached to the Emergency Economic Stabilization Act of 2008.

For a guy who targeted the PGA Championship as the victory he hoped would propel him into the upper echelon of golf, Paul Azinger looked awfully shaky if not downright embarrassed yesterday when Greg Norman rimmed a short putt and "The Zinger" finally had his first major title.After days of classy shot-making and competition as tight as could be recalled by the most faithful of television golf-watchers, Azinger stood there in shock after the Norman miss, which followed his own shattering failure from six feet.

Q: My children seem to run in and out the back door 100 times a day. This creates a chilly draft each time and much dust. Does it make sense to build a vestibule around the door, and how can I build one myself?A: Building a simple do-it-yourself exterior vestibule around your back door can help cut your utility bills, both winter and summer. If you are handy with tools, you should be able to build a very attractive and inexpensive vestibule during a weekend.A vestibule saves even when the back door is not being opened.

Fifty percent of the federal work force will be eligible to retire by 2010. To find a federal job, check usajobs.opm.gov and agency Web sites. Look for such things as announcements of open ings; career fairs, which may feature on-the-spot hiring; summer internships; and recruitment programs for students, recent graduates and minorities. But even while you knock on the federal government's front door, check the back door, too. How? By seeking temporary and contract jobs in federal agencies.

So the Republicans have decided to run against themselves. The bums have tiptoed out the back door and circled around to the front and started yelling, "Throw the bums out!" They've been running Washington like a well-oiled machine, to the point of inviting lobbyists into the back rooms to write the legislation, and now they are anti-establishment reformers dedicated to delivering us from themselves. And Giuliani is an advocate for small-town America. Bravo. They are coming out for Small Efficient Government the very week that the feds are taking over Fannie and Freddie, those old cash cows, and in the course of a weekend 20 or 50 or (pick a number)

`Back door' to prison beats revolving door I carefully read "A `back door' into prison" (Dec. 2). One thing that stood out was that all of the cases presented involved convicted violent criminals who did not serve anywhere near the time that they were sentenced to but were back on the streets posing a threat to law-abiding citizens. I say that if these former felons are out on probation but have not learned their lesson and are not squeaky clean, they should return to prison where they belong.

No need to explain the relief on Elijah Snow's face in September when a jury acquitted him of carrying a deadly weapon - a kitchen knife - through downtown Baltimore. A guilty verdict would have landed the twice-convicted armed carjacker back in prison. Now he appeared to be home free.

THE WIND is a great leveler. The muscular gusts that rocketed though Maryland late this week swept away feelings of seasonal smugness and sent me scurrying to weatherstrip the home front. During November it feels, as Verlyn Klinkenborg says in his new book of essays, The Rural Life, as if "winter could come the next minute or the next month." I had been counting on cold weather to mosey into town in a month or two. But Thursday when the howling wind woke me up at 4 o'clock in the morning it sounded like the wolf was at the door.

It was one of those seductive Venetian dinners. Little out-of-the-way place, soft lighting, good company and a table spread with exotic, unfamiliar temptations. Spirits I'd scarcely heard of. An entree I'd never have ordered myself. Sometime after the Aperol spritzer, probably during the squid-ink pasta but definitely before the last chilled sip of limoncello liqueur, I yielded - a pushover the very first night. Like countless conquests before me, I, too, murmured, "I'm not a tour person, but ... " Many who have taken a Rick Steves tour know the feeling.
