OK, so maybe no one listens to a mere newspaper columnist. But what about a world-renowned management guru, someone who has sold more than 15 million copies of his book, The 7 Habits of Highly Effective People, advised Fortune 500 companies and presidents alike, and been part of the reading list for an MBA class that Oprah Winfrey once taught? Would you listen to that guy? Would you listen to Stephen R. Covey? I'd been feeling rather pessimistic about the special session of the General Assembly that got under way last night, mainly because of all the preliminary bickering - over Gov. Martin O'Malley's plan for making up a projected $1.7 billion budget shortfall, over whether taxes need to be raised or if spending could just be cut, over legalizing slots, over whether to even have the special session at all. You need a scorecard just to keep track of all the combatants in the budget battle - O'Malley vs. the comptroller, Peter Franchot; Senate President Mike Miller vs. House Speaker Mike Busch; Democrats vs. Republicans; Democrats vs. Democrats - so how on earth were all these warring parties going to come to any sort of agreement?

FRANCO HARRIS, the former football star and owner of Parks Sausage, recently found a novel way to explain a weenie deal that went sour.Asked why Parks lost a contract to make hot dogs for Allen Foods, Harris replied: "Poor synergies."Huh? Now, I know Franco owns another company that puts vitamins in doughnuts, but I defy him to try to put synergy in a hot dog. Ditto for synergizing with even the most intelligent of frankfurters.I suspect that Franco was actually referring to a strained relationship between the two companies.

Slavery haunts us. It lurks in the shadows of our conscience, emerging only for painful confrontations in a museum or occasional book. Otherwise, we exorcise it from our memories. Sometimes, we do both at once; witness what recently happened to two infamous slave houses in Maryland. One was the home of Josiah Henson, a slave whose story was the basis for Uncle Tom's Cabin by Harriet Beecher Stowe. The book so ignited anti-slavery passion in the North that Abraham Lincoln greeted the author by saying, "So you're the little woman who wrote the book that started this great war."

WASHINGTON -- To congressional critics, he is "Mr. Iraq," a key architect of the Bush administration's failed accommodation toward Saddam Hussein in the months before the 1990 Iraqi invasion of Kuwait.To his defenders, he is simply a competent and dedicated Foreign Service officer who carried out policies framed by his superiors.Whatever the answer, the once-bright career of James P. "Jock" Covey, the former No. 2 official in the State Department's Middle East bureau, is in limbo.Nominated last spring as assistant secretary of state for South Asian affairs, Mr. Covey finds his confirmation process placed on hold in a dispute between the administration and Congress over access to documents detailing his role in the Iraq affair.

When people are stressed and troubled, they have several options. They can call their mother, a best friend or maybe a crisis hot line.But here's a story about a distressed woman who found her savior in a Pleasanton, Calif., store.It happened a year ago when she wandered in and began telling her troubles to the clerks. She hated her job. She was in a bad relationship. And so on.Lisa Draveling, a clerk at the time, recalls: "She basically asked us, 'What do I need to do?' " An hour later, the woman left with a minor purchase.
