Some years back, Truman Capote, that master of self-dramatization, got himself a Time magazine cover by coming up with the term "non-fiction novel," which just happened to describe the book he was flogging. The phrase has lingered, even if poor Capote and his book have not, and it's a perfect description of "Brother's Keeper," which opens today at the Charles.This is an examination of a criminal case, real, hopelessly banal and yet unique, that throws a culture into relief, exposing its tics and flaws and surprising (or maybe not)

About 200 Maryland Department of the Environment employees on one floor out of the four the agency occupies at its Baltimore headquarters were granted administrative leave Monday as officials dealt with an infestation problem. State officials found bed bugs in the office, located in the Montgomery Park Business Center in southwest Baltimore, in late August. The agency hired an exterminator who performed an inspection of the infested floor Monday. Other parts of the agency remain open, officials said.

A proposed tax on hospital and university beds would be "disproportionate" and "unfair" to Loyola University Maryland, which would shoulder more than one-fourth of the $4 million in taxes the measure would generate, a university leader told City Council members at a hearing Thursday. The university would pay more than $1.1 million if the proposed $350-per-bed annual tax were imposed, Loyola Vice President Terrence M. Sawyer told members of the council's taxation and finance committee.

Years ago we had 3-digit and 4-digit gambling, and over the years Maryland has offered several ways to gamble. But now we've hit the jackpot - we have casinos ( "Horseshoe says casino drew 50,000 in opening weekend," Sept. 2). Some will spend their last dollar hoping to win big, but it's always the casino that wins. Who benefits from all the gambling we have now? Maryland state government. It can't seem to get enough of our hard-earned money. I dare say there are children going to bed hungry because mom or dad spent their money at the casino.

A pillowy seat, a cushy pair of shoes, a soft, enveloping blanket -- we crave sweet comfort and contentment. And nowhere do we appreciate them more than in our beds at night. And while we don't all have a wonderfully comfortable bed, we certainly should. Studies have shown what a positive effect a restful night's sleep can have on one's mood and productivity. So, in your search for a comfy bed, consider the new EuroBed by Tempur-Pedic. The Swedish bed offers pressure-relieving comfort from Tempur material quilted into a soft cover.

Chapel Hill: Algonquin Books, $19.95Solitude can do some strange things to a person, but John Chambers is perhaps a bit stranger than most.Chambers' father, a respectable criminal court judge, calls him "utterly worthless and . . . abjectly murcid," although he leaves his son enough of his hard-earned cash to live a languid life of intellectual introspection in a New York penthouse apartment. Chambers begins describing himself as a rhetorician ("someone who studies the power of language")

CHANGSHA, China - The way Fang Yaolun sees it, his problems began when the workers at the factory realized what they were building for him. Fang, a self-taught engineer and inventor with 15 patents, came up with an innovative idea for a product not long after his divorce in 1995: an adjustable bed whose design, he believed, would aid sex and exercise. The bed would be a high-tech Craftmatic for the Kama Sutra set. With an expected price tag of more than $5,000, it is targeted at a fast-growing sector, the millions of urban Chinese with money to burn.

If a picture really is worth more than a thousand words, imagine kids' well-being when they see their own images all around the house. Strategically placed family photos are an effective way to reinforce your child's self-image and self-confidence.Visual reminders of school events, family trips and everyday activities are proof-positive that a child has a place in life and relationships with others."It's important not only to be photographed in ways that indicate caring, nurturing, love and success, but also to see those images and take them in," says David Krauss, co-author with Jerry Fryrear of "Photo Therapy and Mental Health."

Taking months off from work and everyday responsibilities is something no one is ready for - especially a mother preparing for a new addition to her family. This is the situation Ellicott City resident Joannie Reisfeld found herself thrown into when she was placed on bed rest for two and a half months before the birth of her son, Zach. “I was used to being in charge of laundry and food, and you have to give up control at that point, and that can be very frustrating,” says Reisfeld, who delivered her now healthy 24-year-old son 10 weeks early at only 2 pounds, 10 ounces.

I ordered some trees from North Carolina and the nursery wanted to send them in February. What is a good time to have them delivered? You can't put the trees into the ground until the soil is workable, meaning it's dry enough so a clump crumbles in your hand when squeezed. That time varies from year to year depending on weather. April is a good bet. Sandy soils are ready earlier than clay soils. If the soil is unworkable when your plants arrive, keep them outside in a cool, shady area.

A carrier for Bed Bath & Beyond is creating a distribution hub at a warehouse in Odenton. Last Mile Logistics LLC will consolidate operations from Columbia and Frederick, leasing a 124,000-square-foot space located at 1710 Midway Road in Anne Arundel County, according to commercial real estate services firm Cassidy Turley. The firm represented Last Mile and landlord RT Midway Associates LLP on the deal. Last year saw significant leasing activity in the Baltimore-area industrial real estate market, which drove overall vacancy rates down to about 8 percent at the end of 2013 from almost 10 percent at the end of 2012, according to a report by Cushman & Wakefield.

Again, it's time to put the garden to bed. I began months ago, but I am not quite finished. In late August, a nasty, but good-looking little red bug chewed into my phlox. This phlox bug left all of the leaves on the plants splotched and faded, and the blooms shriveled. I could not stand to look at these sad stalks, so I cut them down. Next spring, I will treat them early, so we do not have a repeat ugliness. Later in September, I cut down most of the spent peonies, asters and other perennials.

A local father who reads the Charm City Moms blog asked me: "How do we get our 3-year-old out of our bed?" Kim West, a Severna Park social worker who tackles children's sleep problems as "The Sleep Lady," says that many of her clients start out committed to "co-sleeping" with their young kids, but find it doesn't quite work out for them. "I also encounter lots of 'we didn't plan it this way' couples seeking help in finally breaking the pattern. These families end up missing their privacy, or they end up just not getting very much sleep."

The consent forms teenagers must get signed by their parents before using a tanning bed could soon change. The State Department of Health and Mental Hygiene is recommending that the form include a clearer and more focused warning about the dangers of tanning beds, including the risk of cancer. Parents will also have to show a government-issued ID when signing the consent form for their children. The form will expire six months after being signed.   The health department was trying to better inform parents as they make the decision whether to allow their children to tan, said Dr. Clifford Mitchell, director of the state's Environmental Health Bureau.
