Some 4,600 years ago, near the banks of the Nile, man first paved a road. The ancient Egyptians used it to haul three-ton blocks of stone for 7 1/2 miles to build the Pyramids of Giza for the glory of the pharaoh. Travel hasn't changed much since then. It might go a little faster -- at least if you're not trying to cross the Bay Bridge on a Friday evening -- but it's still a drag. For most of us, a good chunk of our lives is devoted to getting from Point A to Point B. You might do it by car or truck or subway or bus or train or bicycle or plane or water taxi or helicopter.

As Pope John Paul II clung to life at his Vatican apartment in Rome, his followers in Maryland waited and watched for word of his passing. It was a roller-coaster ride for many, who cried, prayed and rejoiced as they listened to news updates and shared fond memories of the pontiff. Churches across Baltimore held services. Residents dug out old photos and souvenirs from his visit a decade ago. And the region's devout Catholics joined millions around the world in prayer. Especially anxious was Baltimore's Polish community, whose members feel a close tie to the Polish-born pontiff.

The kids who pile into Debbie Helfeld's car after school know her as Debbie and that's fine with the Baltimore mother of two. Respect runs deeper than a title like Ms. Helfeld, she believes.Yet Ms. Helfeld, 42, has learned not to assume that everyone shares her personal indifference to honorifics. Once, when she introduced her children to an older woman by her first name, the slightest hint of disapproval crossed the woman's face. Instantly, Ms. Helfeld understood her faux pas."I realized that she was from a completely different school of thought than I was," she says.
