Works in living black and white provide fascinating experiences at the C. Grimaldis Gallery. Two artists working in different media are highlighted in an exhibit that challenges the way we see familiar images - or what we assume to be familiar images. Dennis Lee Mitchell, receiving his first solo show at Grimaldis, employs smoke to create pieces that exude, simultaneously, remarkable calmness and volatility. The technique involves lighting a blow torch and applying the resulting carbon to paper.

John Koenig was channel-surfing in his second-floor apartment in Relay yesterday afternoon when he heard a boom "10 times louder" than the banging and clanging he normally hears from the nearby train tracks. "The sound was unbelievable. It rattled the windows," said Koenig, a disabled warehouse worker. "If I was asleep it would have woke me up." Miles away in Catonsville, Donna Jessen looked out a large window in the Charlestown Retirement Community's sales office and was struck by what she saw off in the distance.

VATICAN CITY -- The cardinals of the Roman Catholic Church return to the sequestered secrecy of the Sistine Chapel this morning, resuming the deliberations to elect a new pope that ended yesterday with plumes of black smoke rising from the chapel's stovepipe -- a sign that their first vote did not produce a two-thirds majority. Thousands in St. Peter's Square briefly saw the first wisps of smoke as white, building hopes that the 115 cardinals had chosen a successor to Pope John Paul II on their first ballot.

Everyone loves the smell of piping-hot pizza. But no one loves the smell of a burning pizza box. Turns out, this is a difficult scent to eradicate from the home, and I've tried — even frying tilapia for dinner one evening. But the scent of flaming cardboard somehow persists. Almost all of my friends use the oven, set very low, to keep their pizzas warm in the box while they wait for their guests to arrive, for the evening news to be over or for the salad to be made. No one I know has encountered a problem with this.

THE 1968 riots rank with the 1904 fire that wiped out much of the downtown business district and the state legislature's 1947 vote to prevent the city from annexing additional land as major events that changed the course of history for Baltimore this century.In the early hours, the unrest didn't seem like a momentous event. The city was relatively quiet after the assassination of the Rev. Martin Luther King Jr. in Memphis on the evening of #F Thursday, April 4. But by April 6, sporadic, isolated incidents had gained momentum.
