ADD CARNELL DAWSON SR. to the growing list of casualties claimed by Baltimore's tempest of violence and its stepsister, complacency. Add his life to those decimated in a cycle of malevolence that has become so routine in this city as to barely attract notice, let alone inspire change. Even as Mr. Dawson lay dying from burns that covered 80 percent of his body, drug dealers continued to push their poison in the neighborhood where the rest of his family was murdered last week. Even after he has long been buried, the culture that wiped out his family will endure.

Baltimore police are investigating three shooting deaths that took place early Saturday during a rash of overnight violence in the city. Officers have also reported a suspicious death, after answering a report of a 42-year-old woman's body found wrapped in plastic in the 1800 block of E. 29th St. No further details were available. Police believe that two of the three overnight killings being investigated as homicides were connected and might have been related to a domestic dispute.

BY YESTERDAY morning, word had spread through the neighborhood about the Bible, and a few people came by to see it where it lay - open and still readable, flat atop the pile of ashes and embers from the rowhouse fire that killed Angel Dawson and her five children. A news photographer trained a camera lens on it, then some women came by to ask what page it was, and we craned our necks and stepped over the wet, black debris - the burned chairs and bed frames, wall paneling and bicycles - to find the message in the mess.

There are many pocket parks in Baltimore, little stretches of green that complement the brick, cement and steel of the city. Most of them are intended to offer a rest for the eyes, the psyche, during the rush of the day. Two share a deeper purpose. The newer is at the corner of East University and St. Paul streets, to the side of the great brick Cathedral of the Incarnation. The older is at East Preston and Eden streets, to the side of a boarded-up rowhouse. Both mark untimely deaths; both offer solace and a chance for a moment's contemplation.

If Baltimore is indeed becoming Hollywood east - and who are we to argue the point? - then here's your handy map to the movie stars' homes. Only in this case, it's a map to where movie stars have roamed - sites captured forever on film and TV, going back to the 1970s. We begin our journey with a pair of television series, both set in Washington, but filmed right here in Charm City and its environs. And we've also pinpointed a couple of spots from films that are classic Hollywood.
