The developer of an industrial park to be built on the south end of town convinced the Planning and Zoning Commission Monday that a road extension they originally wanted would be nothing but trouble.Charles Harwood of Upperco said that were he to extend the industrial park's main road to the property line, it would result in 220 feet of unused pavement leading to a dead end. He said it would attract trash and parked or abandoned cars and trucks."I'm prepared to dedicate this parcel to the town," Harwood said,in case the town wants to extend the road as a through road in the future.

As if life weren't tough enough, here's a news flash to grind you down a little further: The dead make more money than you do. This comes to us courtesy of the July Forbes magazine, in an article tastefully titled "Top-Earning Dead Celebs." No. 1 on the Forbes "Dead, Buried And Still Rolling in It" list is Elvis Presley. The King, as everyone knows, has been pushing up daisies for nearly three decades. But according to the magazine, he still made $52 million last year - or at least his estate did, from song rights, Graceland tours and all the rest.

Detectives in Aberdeen received a tip they hoped would be their big break: A prisoner seeking leniency said he knew the man who abducted the mother of Orioles legend Cal Ripken Jr. But nearly nine months after the bizarre kidnapping, no suspect has been identified and police still don't know of a motive in the case, in which Violet R. Ripken was taken from her home by an unknown assailant and safely returned nearly 24 hours later. Michael Wayne Molitor claimed last year to know what happened and gave police a name; in return, police helped persuade a judge to grant him bail after a string of drug offenses.

WHEN President Reagan negotiated arms treaties with Soviet leaders, he repeated the maxim, "trust, but verify."It's unfortunate for residents living along Mansion House Crossing in Pasadena that they did not do likewise 20 years ago when real estate agents allegedly assured them that their residential road would remain a dead end.It has evolved into one of the Mountain Road peninsula's most heavily traveled commuter thoroughfares.During the past two decades, as the area's population and traffic ballooned, residents along the road became increasingly angry with the empty assurances made when they bought their homes.

The money trail from last week's terrorist attacks may eventually lead back to Osama bin Laden. But experts say it could just as easily reach a dead end at an offshore bank account, an automated teller machine or even a shoe box. "Don't rule out a shoe box full of cash," says John Fernandez, editor of the monthly newsletter Money Laundering Alert, based in Miami. "Bin Laden's organization has used both modern and ancient ways of moving money." The hunt for the financiers behind the attacks in New York and Washington is a crucial part of the investigation, promising the possibility of a direct link to bin Laden, whom President Bush has called the prime suspect.

Dead End Saloon This unpretentious Fells Point pub straddles Fell and Wolfe streets. Where -- 935 Fell St. Call -- 410-732-3602 Notable -- A bunch of old tap handles hangs upside down from the ceiling above the bar. If you sit at the bar, look down at the foot rest -- it's a metal trough instead of a wooden beam. Vibe -- Flags are pinned on the ceiling, video poker machines are by the pool table, and a number of solid beers are on tap. Laid back is an understatement during the workweek, but the place can get rowdy on the weekends.

Despite its name, there is nothing dire about the Dead End Saloon in Fells Point . In fact, it is quite a lively spot, even on a weeknight. The establishment's name stems not from its atmosphere, nor its clientele, but from its location. It sits on a cobblestone way, Fell Street, that ends abruptly at the water. If you attempted to travel beyond Fell Street, you would meet an unfortunate watery demise. When the saloon added a kitchen in the late 1990s, the "Pelican Grille" was added to its full name.

In conversation, "pathetic" has become a synonym for useless, but the strength of the movie Brick Lane, adapted from Monica Ali's novel, lies precisely in its comedy-streaked pathos. This London-based tale of a young Bangladeshi woman, Nazneen (Tannishtha Chatterjee), who begins to feel trapped in her arranged marriage to a decades-older man, Chanu (Satish Kaushik), lacks the stature we associate with tragedy or tragicomedy. But the movie has a vibrant, sturdy pathos in the manner of Dickens.

Nationwide, 621 dealerships representing the big three Detroit manufacturers closed last year, according to the Automotive News Dealer Census.

For Phyllis Bricker, a rare tour yesterday through the Supermax prison - where her parents' killer is housed on death row - was the latest step in a painful odyssey as she awaits an execution that has been on hold for years. "My parents are gone, and he's still here," Bricker said while standing inside the fortified building north of downtown, at the state prison complex on East Madison Street. For Lisa Spicknall, whose husband killed their two children in 1999 and was later slain by another inmate in prison in Jessup, there was some relief.

The closing of KIPP Harbor Academy just outside Annapolis after the resignation of Principal Jallon Brown this week is sad news, mostly for the students who have benefited from the school and their parents who have invested so much energy and hope in it. There is surely enough blame to go around in this woeful tale, but the failure of Anne Arundel County school officials to offer meaningful, timely help is especially lamentable. The nonprofit Knowledge Is Power Program has improved educational results for low-income and minority children through more than 50 schools around the country.

Senate puts off voting machine paper receipts The Maryland Senate effectively sank a bill yesterday that would have required voting machines to generate a paper record that could be reviewed prior to election results being certified as official. "This is obviously a ploy to kill any hope of getting it done in time for an election," said Del. Sheila E. Hixson, the Montgomery County Democrat who sponsored a House version of the bill. The measure mandated that the paper records be kept at polling places at a cost of $17 million to the state for fiscal year 2008 and $1.5 million for fiscal year 2009.

One day not long ago, I got home from work and found a new sign posted on my street: DEAD END.Such a thing naturally raises questions about your social prospects. Who wants to live in a DEAD END?So I called City Hall. They told me where I could put my questions.No, really, there is such a place. It is a yellow building far out on East Lombard Street. It's called the Sign Shop.When I got there I conveyed my dismay to Frank J. Murphy, a supervisor in the traffic division of the Department of Public Works.

He lives where he has lived since the move west in 1958 -- in Fullerton, Calif., in a cul-de-sac, in a Dodger-blue-and-white house with a pool in back and a satellite dish on top."Do you know what a cul-de-sac is?" Al Campanis, still a teacher at heart, asks as he gives you directions on the phone."A dead end," you say.But Al Campanis' cul-de-sac is not a dead end.Many who knew his devotion to the game thought Campanis might just shrivel up and die after some loose talk on a "Nightline" telecast about baseball and minorities cost him a Dodgers' vice presidency 3 1/2 years ago.Instead, at 74, he is looking to the future.

Stay the course is out. Adjusting tactics is in. Insurgency is fading. Civil war appears to have arrived. Withdraw troops? Increase troops? A phased withdrawal? A stated timetable? Stick with al-Maliki's government? Look for new leadership? The future of Iraq and the United States' mission there is as murky as Baghdad in the midst of a sandstorm. Still, something fundamental is going to change no matter how deeply President Bush appears to dig in his heels. A new Congress, with Democrats swept into leadership on a wave of dissatisfaction with the war, takes its seat next month.
