PORT-AU-PRINCE, Haiti -When Mill Etienne's family fled Haiti in 1981, he was just 5 years old, not much bigger than the broken little body now stretched out before him on a gurney aboard the USNS Comfort. Growing up in suburban New York, Etienne had wanted to sever any connection to that violent, impoverished Caribbean nation. He sought a comfortable American life and cringed at the sound of his family's tropical lilt. He acted as if every book he devoured and every test he aced could help him forget the squalor.

In Paul Etienne Lincoln's world, machines come to life, and what cannot be seen is often far more important than what can.With the demeanor of Pee-wee Herman and the mind of Merlin, Mr. Lincoln is an artist with a love for wacky gadgets and a magical knack for producing them.He plucks ideas from anywhere -- a medieval medical text, a garden, a dog-eared operatic score -- and retreats to his Manhattan "laboratory-boudoir." There, Mr. Lincoln stirs his thoughts with a bit of physics and a dash of beauty and cooks up what he calls "memory machines," or extraordinary creations that recall thoughts from days gone by.Other wondrous things spring from his mind as well: small, clever gizmos programmed to perform highly specific and bizarre tasks.

Over the next 21/2 years, the city is budgeted to spend nearly $22 million to tear down 1,500 abandoned houses - a move urban planners say could transform Baltimore visually and clear a path for struggling neighborhoods to attract future development. Previously, the city had been spending about $2.5 million a year on demolition.
