I had a lonely feeling as I walked along the empty, isolated blocks just north of the Johns Hopkins Hospital in East Baltimore. In the distance, a bulldozer was eating away at a block of Patterson Park Avenue rowhouses. The emptied lots reminded me of 1950s urban renewal clearance. It's been a full decade since redevelopment was announced for this big chunk of Baltimore: 88 acres bounded by Broadway, Patterson Park Avenue, Madison Street and the Amtrak railway embankment. It's the neighborhood that I often viewed from a train window, a spot that seemed to embody 1940s working-class East Baltimore, when there were abundant jobs at the tin mills, paint factories and garment-making shops.

Edward and Lorraine Williams had always wanted a front door with a screen instead of a side entrance and a roomier basement at their house in East Baltimore. But more than anything else, they just wanted to return to their home, severely damaged by fire a year and a half ago. And early Monday morning, the couple, who were displaced by an electrical fire in March 2008 that injured Lorraine Williams and their year-old grandson, Khalil Butler, were able to move back into their fully rehabilitated two-story rowhouse.

Edward Bennett Williams was a Washingtonian. That fact hovered darkly over Orioles fans.For the years Williams owned the team, Baltimoreans worried that their ballclub was in the hands of an out-of-towner, a man who could choose at any moment to move the Orioles down the parkway to D.C.To be sure, Williams -- tough, gruff, a superstar lawyer and Washington power broker -- never actually threatened to take the club from Baltimore. He didn't have to. The thought lingered, unspoken. Even as fans set attendance records at Memorial Stadium, Williams complained that the ballpark was inadequate, unprofitable and badly located.

Edward Bennett Williams's greatest sporting ambition was to own a major league baseball team. The boy who had sold "ice colds and red hots" for the minor league Hartford Senators wanted to own the big league Washington Senators. He had bought into the football Redskins only after he failed to win a baseball franchise in Washington in 1961. In 1972, he had tried again to get a team in Washington but failed in an attempt to move the San Diego Padres. Undaunted, he kept searching for weak franchises that might want to move to the nation's capital.

When the National Security Agency trains its agents in the highly technical art of eavesdropping, they naturally need to practice.And the law gives them the right to practice on you.NSA agents can hone their listening skills and test their equipment on the most intimate telephone calls of ordinary U.S. citizens, as long as notes and tapes are destroyed "as soon as reasonably possible.""We listened to all the calls in and out of Washington," says one former NSA linguist, recalling a class at the Warrenton Training Center, a CIA communications school on a Virginia hilltop.
