It's bad news/good news/bad news time about the area's top businesses, courtesy of the Washington/Baltimore Regional Association:In 1990, the number of publicly held companies in the region fell slightly, according to a new report from W/BRA. That's the bad news.The good news is that the smaller number of companies -- 161, compared with 163 in 1989 -- generated more revenue in 1990: $179.9 billion, vs. $100.9 billion the year before.But the bad news is that very little of that increase came from existing companies.

On Aug. 29, the day he began to lose his city, Wendell Pierce in New Orleans hunkered down with family, all powerless, all listening to the radio describe a hurricane that would destroy his father's home -- Pierce's childhood home -- in Pontchartrain Park. Then, work called. Are you all right? Yes, he was safe. We got to do something, said his boss in Baltimore. Definitely, Pierce said. So, we will do a benefit once you get up here. David Simon, executive producer of HBO's The Wire, had called Pierce, who, as fans of the drama series know, plays Baltimore homicide detective William "Bunk" Moreland.

The faces in the deeply affecting British film "Brassed Off" are arresting. Close camera shots focus on bulbous, red noses, floppy ears, heavy brows and wet, runny eyes.They are homely faces, and one of this endearing film's achievements is that they quickly become dear, too, like the faces of friends, which you no longer consider as handsome or not. They are simply welcome.The faces in "Brassed Off" are weary and drawn. They belong to coal miners in the dreary, fictitious town of Grimley nearly a decade ago. Like many real Yorkshire cities of that time, the town is threatened by Margaret Thatcher's Tory government, which aims to close the coal pit though it remains profitable and vital to Grimley's survival.
