FORT WAYNE, Ind. - On a tree-filled boulevard known as doctors' row, the four- and five-bedroom brick Tudor homes that are the jewels of this city's housing stock were selling for about $150,000 two decades ago. At the time, some homes in the nation's most desirable suburbs, such as Brookline, Mass., Sausalito, Calif., and Great Neck, N.Y., cost the same. Over the past 20 years, however, the nation's housing market has split, and the break has helped create two contrasting economies. Homes in the areas that were the most expensive - California and the Boston-to-Washington corridor - have often doubled or tripled in value, even after adjusting for inflation.

My robe gonna fit me well, Tried it on at the gates of Hell, Keep your hand on the plow, Hold on! - Negro spiritual You could hear the slight weariness, the semi-artificial cheer, the hurry-slowly tempo in Tony Snow's voice. The president's always pressed-for-time-and-running-late spokesperson was conducting still another pre-State of the Union conference call Tuesday afternoon at about 3:30 Washington compressed time. He was talking to a passel of us editorial writers in the hinterlands, well aware that even out here his boss' poll numbers were sinking almost as low as Harry Truman's during the lowest, most discouraging point in the seemingly endless Korean War. You had to be a hardhearted zealot or a Democratic operative, but we repeat ourselves, not to feel a twinge of sympathy for the always personable Mr. Snow.

When Christ's healing skills drew the multitudes, he told them, "Let your light shine before men, that they may see your good works, and glorify your Father which is in heaven."This description of the Sermon on the Mount from the book of Matthew is one of Joyce Roush's favorite Scriptural passages, and one she has tried to take to heart. The organ donation coordinator from Indiana came to national attention a month ago when she donated one of her own kidneys to a 13-year-old Harford County boy whom she did not know.
