If you walked by my Canton house this past weekend, chances are better than good "Purple Swag" was blaring out of the living room. Harlem's ASAP Rocky has a steady-climbing buzz thanks to a small sample of woozy, drugged-out bangers. His songs have a bender quality — the low-end knocks off a listener's equilibrium, the slow vocals swirl the mind and Rocky's assured delivery somehow stabilizes the whole thing ... just enough . The white girl mouthing the lyrics (including an "N" word, while golds sit on her bottom row of teeth)

Every time Christian Bale or Emily Watson or Sean Bean or Taye Diggs appears in the futuristic sci-fi fantasy Equilibrium, you wonder what any one of these great faces is doing in such a squalid picture. Maybe they believed they were acting in the 1984 or Metropolis of the Prozac generation. Writer-director Kurt Wimmer sets his tale in a city-state of the near-future. Warfare has depressed the population. At the behest of a shadowy figure known as Big Bro- no, Father, citizens agree to use a drug called Prozium to rid themselves of fiery emotions like rage and hate.

Steve Bisciotti trusts his instincts. He used them to find the relatively uncredentialed but talented young people who helped him build the country's largest private hiring firm. And the Ravens owner was comfortable relying on them to pick as his new head coach a man who has never run a professional offense or defense, much less a team. John Harbaugh was not the most- experienced or the hottest name on the coaching market. But Bisciotti built a fortune by spotting people like him, and the owner seemed at ease with his choice as the Ravens introduced their new coach yesterday.

BEHIND U.S. ACQUIESCENCE in the partial lifting of economic sanctions against Iraq and Saddam Hussein's acceptance of limitations on his national sovereignty lies the geo-political reality of Iran. While Iraq remains the chief irritant in the Persian Gulf, Iran is currently the greater threat. Hence, it is in the U.S. interest to restore and maintain equilibrium, as best it can, in the oil-rich Iran-Iraq-Saudi Arabian triangle.Humanitarian concerns are very much at stake in the U.N. Security Council's decision to allow the Baghdad regime $2 billion in oil exports over the next six months, with the proceeds to be distributed under strict U.N. supervision.

Equilibrium Horse Center in Crofton is more than a place to learn how to ride a horse, according to its director and students.The 82-acre farm is a place where children can learn responsibility and where animals can teach people to be better human beings, according to owner Kathleen Harjess. It's what sets her place apart from other riding centers, she says."The environment of the place is one where people can grow," Ms. Harjess of Crofton said in an interview.Michael Booher, a 14-year-old ninth-grader at Arundel Senior High School, said that having his own horse to teach and care for has made him more responsible.

Broadway, Virginia. -- For generations, it has generally been the bigoted and narrow-minded who have been the foes of immigration. Humane and broad-minded people have said with Emma Lazarus, ''Give me your tired, your poor . . .'' But the world has changed, and in the face of these changes, the broadest perspective requires us to say: ''It is time to close the door to substantial new immigration to the United States.''The crucial change is the emergence of overpopulation as one of the most urgent problems besetting humankind.

LeadershipEditor: The Nov. 16 article regarding the retirement of principal Boyse F. Mosley stimulated me to think that if there is anything positive we can learn from his lack of success, it is that traditional autocratic methods of teaching and leading do not work in the 1990s.Blaming others, a typical autocratic response, for his inability to lead or educate solves absolutely nothing and once again proves that dogmatic leadership is dysfunctional.While blaming others for his failure, Mr. Mosley hit the nail on the head when stating he spends most of his time maintaining order rather then education.

Dress the bed as you will; the big news in design is the frame. Simple ge-ometry rules the hippest modern bed styles today. As simplifying our lives and decluttering our homes continue to be the mantra of the decade, it is no surprise that more of us are seeking a pared-down place to occupy one-third of our time. The "wenge" (pronounced WEN-gay) look of espresso-black furniture that has been so popular in the living room has settled into the bedroom. The naturally dark African wood adds the same kind of elegance as a classic black dress or suit.

Texas Rangers owner Tom Hicks just became the latest multi-millionaire to come to his senses. Too bad it happened after he single-handedly pushed baseball's salary structure to the brink of insanity. Don't misunderstand. Superstar shortstop Alex Rodriguez deserves to be the highest-paid player in the game, but when Hicks agreed in 2000 to pay him $252 million over 10 years - coincidentally, exactly twice the gross value of the largest contract previously awarded a professional athlete - he all but guaranteed another nasty labor showdown.

The sports world is full of stories about teen athletes deprived of their youth by overzealous coaches and overbearing parents ... of the joy of sport being replaced by the intense pressure to succeed. Maybe that's why U.S. gymnastics champion Elise Ray is such an appealing Olympic story. It takes tremendous commitment to become one of the best athletes in the world, but Ray - the 18-year-old Columbia resident who swept through the nationals and the Olympic trials to establish herself as the nation's top women's gymnast - has proved that you don't have to sacrifice your life to pursue your dream.

For the past month there's been a new sign at 1727 N. Charles St. It reads "Everyman Theatre."The sign heralds the Nov. 4 opening of a new professional playhouse for Baltimore. It is also a sign that a local arts group has demonstrated considerable confidence in a part of the city badly in need of a show of support.The location is a block and a half from Pennsylvania Station and a couple of doors removed from the Charles movie theater. The location is also on a block where other arts groups have tried -- and failed -- to make a go of it."

It may seem that painter Richard Diebenkorn spent his life swimming against the tide.He lived on the West Coast rather than in New York, the capital of the art world. He began his career as an abstract expressionist in the late 1940s, but in 1955, when abstraction was still in the ascendancy, he abruptly shifted to representation. A decade later, when abstract art was in decline, he turned to a form of landscape-based abstraction distinctly outside the mainstream of fashion, and pursued it the rest of his life.
