Brockett Horne and her husband, Chris Tesluk, say they chose their city home with the flip of a coin. "Chris works in College Park and I teach at MICA; we ended up choosing Baltimore over D.C.," says Horne, a 40-year-old graphic artist. "We wanted an old house and close to a park. The city suits us … there is so much going on. " The couple purchased a three-story Butchers Hill rowhouse near Patterson Park in 2008 for $182,000.

As the buzz of hair clippers mixed with Gene Simmons' howl through speakers inside Beatnik Barbershop, Ali Farzad awaited his last haircut inside the tiny Mount Vernon establishment. Raising his voice to be heard over the din, Farzad said he's moving to Los Angeles for work. After three years going to Beatnik, he's nervous about finding a new barber, he said, gazing at paintings by local artists mounted on the shop's exposed brick walls. "I'm very particular about my haircut, and I've had nightmarish experiences other places," Farzad said.

I DECIDED TO beat the Holy Week rush by weaving through a sidewalk full of schoolchildren and taking a seat in Rick Citrano's well-lighted Highlandtown barbershop. You'd never call this place a "salon" or a "cuttery." It's pretty much your father's barbershop. Rick gives a no-nonsense haircut for $9. I arrived just as Rick was brushing the trimmings from an elderly man with orange-and-gray hair and preparing to clean up a young man who wanted his brown hair to be as trim as his brown beard.

WASHINGTON -- If you didn't know better, you might think that our most prominent black leaders were running out of serious causes to protest. That might explain why the Rev. Jesse Jackson and the Rev. Al Sharpton, among some others, decided to pick on one of the most thoughtful comedies about African-Americans that African-Americans in Hollywood have ever produced. I expected to put off seeing the new hit movie Barbershop until it came out on videotape. Movies are too big of a project, requiring too much planning and money, to be taken on capriciously in my family.

That's why members of the 2-year-old organization - the subject of this column in March - are so excited about their ranking in the annual barbershop competition at Ocean City Convention Center. Chesapeake Harmony finished in 12th place among 21 choruses from Maryland, Pennsylvania, Delaware and New Jersey.

WASHINGTON -- In an act of shear politics, the House of Representatives trimmed its perquisites yesterday by sharply raising prices at its tax-subsidized barbershop.A House administration subcommittee doubled the tab for a basic haircut from $5 to $10 and bumped the bill for a shoeshine from 75 cents to $2 in the barbershop's first round of price increases since 1979.The action comes at a time when polls show voters are in a political lather over congressional benefits. An outcry arose recently over revelations that House members had bounced 8,000 checks at their cooperative bank and owed more than $300,000 at the House restaurant.

As the owner of a small business in Annapolis, Patti Platt always felt so frazzled and busy that she couldn't imagine taking even one night away to gain a little perspective. Hers, she says, was a life out of sync — or, more aptly, a life out of tune. Then she decided to join the Chesapeake Harmony Chorus. "I used to think there was no way I could make time for something like this," said Platt, 58, as she cheerfully shed her overcoat, did a few vocal warm-up exercises and stepped into a circle of 15 women for a two-hour session of barbershop-style harmonizing Wednesday evening.
