FOR A breakfast interview with Playboy cover girl Christi Shake, we chose the famous Double T diner on U.S. 40 in White Marsh, because that's how we do things at this newspaper: first class all the way. "I hope she keeps her clothes on," laughed the woman behind the register when our photographer, Jed Kirschbaum, mentioned he'd be shooting a Playboy model. Jed, who has been in this business a long time, did not want to commit one way or the other for someone he hadn't even met. A few minutes after 9, Christi and her mother, Dawn Fistek, breezed in. Christi, of course, is a looker, and several men at nearby tables nearly wrenched their spines twisting around to stare at her. Right now, she is also getting her first taste of fame.

Pointing to North Point-Edgemere volunteer firefighters as an example of the "first responders" who will suffer from budget cuts proposed by President Bush, Rep. C.A. Dutch Ruppersberger stopped by the company's Baltimore County fire station yesterday to criticize the president's 2004-2005 spending plan. Ruppersberger, a first-term Democrat, said he hopes he and his congressional colleagues can persuade the White House to restore a proposed cut of $1.5 billion in Department of Homeland Security grants that could help volunteer fire companies like North Point-Edgemere replace aging equipment.
