WHY IN the late 1900s wasn't there a degeneracy school in literature and the arts, akin to that of the 1890s? One answer is Edward Gorey. A one-man fin de siecle, he drew and wrote well enough to dominate the genre In one after another of Mr. Gorey's small, pen-illustrated books, you met grown-ups or children, some rather blank, others very strange, whose Victorian or Edwardian lives would go unaccountably awry; or end, badly. "Across from the churchyard, Alberta Stipple returned home to find the wallpaper in the drawing room gone."

Members of the Fallston Fins Swim Team are in the pool every week in a competitive meet, but next week the competition will be a bit different. Since 2009, the Fins have hosted a swim fundraiser to benefit and remember a lost teammate, Wilson Brady, who was killed in a tragic car accident in Bel Air in November 2008. Brady's mother, Katie, was also killed in the crash. Wilson, known as Wil to friends and family, was a fantastic, lovable 8-year-old who always had a smile on his face and an inherent talent for swimming.

For a while it wasn't clear whether the basement of the Admiral Fell Inn in Fells Point, where most notably Cindy Wolf's Savannah once was, would ever be another restaurant. The last restaurant there, True, died a quiet death last fall, and since then the dining room has been used for private events. But now Sherry Cohen, director of food and beverage for Admiral Fell Inn Catering, and her husband Avi, who is the chef, have opened Fin. Actually the full name is, oddly enough, Fin Steak & Seafood.

Conservationists are decrying a move by the Atlantic States Marine Fisheries Commission to loosen what critics say is already a lax restriction on shark finning, the controversial practice of slicing the fins off and discarding the body at sea. At its spring meeting Tuesday in Alexandria, Va., the fisheries commission voted to allow fishing boats catching smooth dogfish to more than double the ratio of fins to bodies that they bring back to...

I admit that I didn't go into Fin with as open a mind as I should have. I just thought the restaurant's full name, Fin Steak & Seafood, was weird. Shouldn't it be Fin Seafood? Or if beef is an important part of your raison d'etre, shouldn't you call yourself something other than Fin? But as somebody once said, "What's in a name?" It simply doesn't matter when the kitchen is producing food this good. From what I can tell, the kitchen of Fells Point's newest fine-dining restaurant is pretty much a one-man show.

Finger-like bones found inside the fossilized fin of an ancient fish suggest that digits - fingers, toes and the like - evolved a lot earlier than expected, well before the first critter with a backbone slithered out of the sea, scientists report.Discovered in rocks from a road cut in northern Pennsylvania, the 370 million-year-old fin shows that the appendages we use for grasping might have evolved from limbs originally for swimming. This may change scientists' estimates of how and when such limbs developed in bony creatures.

Recent mainstream movies haven't exactly been spitting forth self-possessed, charismatic leading men. Peter Dinklage, the star of the charming, even lovable independent film The Station Agent, towers above all others at a height of 4-foot-5. As a railroad fanatic named Finbar or Fin McBride, who inherits an abandoned train depot in Newfoundland, N.J., Dinklage burns with an adamant sense of self that transcends his dwarfdom and intrigues everyone around him. He suggests a vast interior life and a fierce determination to protect it from intrusion.

It's a look worn by trendy teens, late boomers and shoe salesmen at Barneys -- a hairstyle that originated in England but is now making waves stateside. It's called the fin, and it may be coming to a salon near you, if it hasn't already washed up. What's the fin? "It's hair that's cut real short, and up on top it all gets pushed toward the center so it looks almost like a Mohawk," says David Petersen, co-owner of Rudy's Barbershop, a trend-setting salon in Los Angeles that does the cut. Gabrielle Hart, artistic director of Studio 1612 in Mount Washington, says the look has been steadily gaining popularity in the area for the past two months, although not everyone calls it "the fin."

If the real Millennium doesn't come until 2001, must we endure this nonsense all over again in a year's time? At least it is no longer necessary to spell or pronounce fin de siecle. Democrats could run more confidently against Bush than McCain. Republicans would rather debate Bradley than Gore. Consumer confidence is at a 31-year high. Sell.

State lawmakers pass budget The General Assembly gave its final approval Friday to a $36.9 billion state operating budget for next year that whittles down Maryland's long-term revenue shortfall without raising taxes. The House and Senate signed off on a compromise reached by a conference committee. Their approval of the budget bill, which does not require Gov. Martin O'Malley's signature, came with little drama — a stark contrast with last year's passage of a budget in the session's final hours.

Maryland could outlaw the shark fin trade under a bill that passed the House of Delegates this week. The fins, the key ingredient in shark fin soup and considered a delicacy in some Chinese cuisines, have undergone global scrutiny because of unsustainable harvesting practices. In some parts of the world, the fins are sliced off the sharks and the wounded animals are left to swim in the sea. The ban, which now heads to the Senate, would outlaw the importation or possession of shark fins.

Some Maryland lawmakers concerned about declining numbers of sharks worldwide have introduced legislation to ban trade in the ocean predators' fins, the prized ingredient in a soup that is popular in Chinese cuisine. Bills introduced Tuesday in both House and Senate would outlaw sale, trade, distribution or even possession of raw, dried or processed shark fins.  Violations would be punishable by fines ranging from $5,000 for the first offense up to $50,000 for repeat infractions.

Tavern on the Square has opened in the Canton. It's in the old Fins space. Mel Carter, the general manager and part owner of Blue Hill Tavern , also in Canton, purchased Fins last September and, for a few months, kept things as they were. Right after the new year, Carter says, he closed the property for one week. Fins reopened on Monday with a cosmetic makeover, a new menu and new name. The new interior, Carter says, is decorated with black wood furniture and trim and vintage black-and-white photography of old Baltimore.  Carter describes the menu at Tavern on the Square as "contemporary American bar fare with a focus on game oriented dishes.

SYRACUSE, N.Y. -- When trying to stop the Syracuse University midfielders, all the choices often turn out to be the wrong ones.All-Americans Roy Colsey, Charlie Lockwood and Dom Fin are as different types of players as you could find on a lacrosse field. But they often find a common ground -- the small patch of territory inside the opponent's net.The three are the heart of Syracuse's run-and-gun offense and account for almost 40 percent of the team's goals. Individually each poses a different problem for the defense; together they are deadly.
