Just six months after he took the bar exam, the small law firm where Justin Browne was working told him business had dropped so significantly that they were laying off almost all of its associates. With a newborn baby and a wife to care for and law school bills to pay, Browne found himself without a job. The firm, which specialized in contract, construction, consumer and commercial law, hadn't been doing so well. "Frankly, I kind of knew that this was going to happen," Browne said.

SAVANNAH, Ga. -- To see where the life of Clarence Thomas might have ended up, one must journey to where it began, out on the tidal flats of the Moon River just south of town, where marsh grasses bend gently to breezes that smell faintly of brine and mud.Here at a small community called Pinpoint, little has changed from June 1948 when the man President Bush has nominated for the Supreme Court was born. The shack of a crab house where his mother picked meat for a nickel a pound still stands by the murky water.

Robert M. McLane guided Baltimore through the Great Fire of 1904 and led a bold rebuilding effort. The 36-year-old blue-blood mayor found time, too, to sneak off and secretly marry a socialite hailed as one of the city's most beautiful women. Then on May 30, less than four months after the flames were doused, he shared a laugh with his bride at their West Preston Street home, walked into his dressing room and, according to a coroner, shot himself in the head with a .32-caliber Smith & Wesson revolver.
