NEW YORK -- Step aside, Four Horsemen of the Apocalypse. Make way for the Levy family.That may be a bit dramatic, but David and Jay Levy are a good tonic for those who are optimistic about the U.S. economy.The father-son team of economists believes that a real, lasting upturn lies years ahead.The current economic spark, they say, is due to election-year pump-priming that will dissipate this spring."It's not an end-of-the-world scenario, but it is what we call a contained depression," said David Levy, the youngest member of the family.

The Charles Theater, for 14 1/2 years Baltimore's premiere art movie venue, won't be showing the Chinese film "Farewell My Concubine" this Christmas, as its schedule proclaims. Instead, it will be exhibiting a sadder reality: Farewell, my Baltimore.The theater, which has been leased and operated by Washingtonian David Levy since June 1979, will close its doors Sunday night and remain dark for at least several weeks as its owners struggle to find new operators."I am hopeful that it will not be dark very long," said Alan Shecter, chief operating partner of Bowling Inc., the Baltimore real estate firm that owns the theater and much of the 1700 block of N. Charles St. "There are a couple of commercial operators in the picture -- that is, local people who would operate the theater like David Levy did."

JERUSALEM -- Israeli Foreign Minister David Levy declared yesterday that he was quitting the government in a dispute over the 1998 budget, creating yet another crisis for Prime Minister Benjamin Netanyahu and forcing him to delay the crucial budget vote until Monday.Levy's declaration came as right-wing and religious members of Netanyahu's contentious coalition wrested one concession after another from the prime minister, while the foreign minister's priorities were pushed back.Calling a news conference, Levy declared that he and the four members of his Gesher faction in the Knesset, Israel's parliament, would vote against the budget, and that "a vote against means resigning from the government."

COLLEGE PARK -- The newly discovered comet Shoemaker-Levy 9 will unleash an explosive power that will dwarf the biggest nuclear war humans could ever ignite on Earth when it collides this summer with the planet Jupiter, scientists say.The resulting fireballs and flashes will occur 480 million miles from Earth -- too far away to see without a telescope. But scientists gathered this week at College Park to organize observations that will involve nearly every big observatory in the world, the Hubble Space Telescope and other orbiting observatories.
