Sometimes a monopoly just isn't enough.For years, Comcast Corp. has been the sole provider of cable TV service in a broad suburban swath that includes parts of Harford, Howard and Baltimore counties. It's been a nice gig -- cable has come to rank not so very far below electricity and water as a basic household service, and Comcast is where 300,000 households in the three counties go for their fix.But this is the late 1990s, the age of the ever-expanding, gotta-have-it-all communications behemoth.

Named "Trinity," the three-piece stainless-steel work by New York artist Hans Van de Bovenkamp stands in a courtyard of three buildings in the National Business Park, off Route 32 at the Baltimore-Washington Parkway.

ADVERTORIAL CONTENT When comparing Baltimore andWashington, D.C., people often focus on the differences - in favorite sports teams, favorite foods and even brands of beer. This has created a regional rivalry that often leads area residents to commit to being either a “Baltimore person” or “D.C. person.” However, it doesn't necessarily have to be that way. In fact, you can be a Baltimore person and a D.C. person, enjoying the best of both cities from a neighborhood that's the exact midway point between downtown Baltimore and downtownWashington, D.C. - Bozzuto at Maple Lawn.

Efforts to bring a high-speed magnetic levitation train to the Baltimore-Washington corridor have been derailed.The proposed budget presented by President Clinton Monday includes no money to develop maglev technology in the United States or to develop a prototype.The 300-mph train service has long faced funding battles in Congress, but the administration's decision could kill it altogether."If the program isn't dead, it's barely breathing. We'll have to wait for another time," said E. Wayne Thevenot, a maglev lobbyist in Washington.

If incorporated, Columbia - with a population of about 100,000 - would be Maryland's second-largest city. It sits smack dab in the middle of the Baltimore-Washington corridor. But you can't get from Columbia to either of those cities without getting on Interstate 95 or other north-south highways, which, like roads all over Central Maryland, are increasingly congested. During rush hours, a MARC train trip from downtown Baltimore to Washington often takes less time than driving from Columbia to the district.
