Many people claim credit for the success of Baltimore's Charles Center and Inner Harbor renewal areas. David A. Wallace is one individual who actually deserves it. The nationally known architect and urban planner, who was found dead in his Philadelphia home last week, led teams that created master plans to guide the redevelopment of Charles Center and the Inner Harbor shoreline - the starting points for Baltimore's much-vaunted renaissance. In the process, he showed the country how attractive and livable a city can be when it's built according to strong planning principles rather than by happenstance.

This election year will no doubt go down in history as a crossroads election. Do people want more centralized, big government micro-management of our lives? Or do we want freedom and limited government under the U.S. Constitution? If you want to send a message to the powerful in Washington, you can do so with your vote. I'm supporting Dave Wallace for Congress in District 8. I've known him for many years. He's earned my trust as a common sense conservative. Dave Wallace is pro-life and pro-Second Amendment.

The Tiki Barge won't have a twin barge this Spring after all. Owners of the popular and controversial floating barge had planned to build a seafood and raw bar aboard a second barge this Spring, but the Baltimore Liquor Board Thursday sided with neighbors who opposed the idea. The decision was a major disappointment for Tiki manager Bud Craven, who was ready to start construction Monday.  "I'm real surprised," Craven said after the hearing. "A lot of time and a lot of money has already been spent on this project.

SAN DIEGO - Fires happen all the time, and what's left behind is never pretty. But seldom is the devastation as complete as it is here in Scripps Ranch, a middle-class community in the suburbs north of San Diego. A few days ago, the corner of Fairbrook Road and Thornbush Court looked like most neighborhoods in America, with Halloween decorations on the doors, minivans in the driveways and kids in the back yard. Look in any direction from the street corner today and little is left except for brick chimneys that stand like eerie sentinels over a charcoal landscape.

Seeking ways to revitalize Baltimore's east side, the city is exploring the idea of tearing down a mile-long stretch of the Jones Falls Expressway that divides downtown from the Johns Hopkins medical campus. Baltimore's Department of Transportation has hired an engineering team headed by Rummel, Klepper & Kahl LLP to examine the pros and cons of razing the elevated expressway roughly between Chase and Fayette streets and replacing it with a landscaped "urban boulevard" that would provide access to an area larger than Charles Center or the Harbor East renewal district.

Infinite Jest By David Foster Wallace With its baroque subplots, zany political satire, morbid, cerebral humor and astonishing range of cultural references, Wallace's brilliant dirigible of a novel is set in an absurd yet uncanny near-future, with a cast of hundreds and close to 400 footnotes. Along the way, it questions essential elements of American culture - our entertainments, our addictions, our relationships, our pleasures, our abilities to define ourselves.
