Staffers at Rep. Elijah Cummings' Baltimore office arrived Wednesday to find gobs of putty and wiring on the door, raising fears of an explosive attack and drawing emergency crews from around the region. Though the suspicious objects turned out to be harmless, they alarmed many around the Park Avenue office of the Baltimore Democrat and spawned a criminal inquiry by the FBI. Cummings said he and his colleagues have come to expect more threats over the past few years as political discourse has grown more charged.

Q: We'll soon be moving to a condo, and that will mean changing the style of our furnishings. The biggest problem is what to do with a fairly large living room that has sliding glass doors along its longest wall. With the exception of a 10-foot-by-12-foot corner across from the glass doors, there's no available wall space wider than four feet. How are we going to arrange our new furniture? And what sort of pieces would make the most sense in this setting?A: Because the room is fairly large, some of the furniture can be placed elsewhere than against the walls.

Q: We're unsure of what to do with a wall consisting mostly of sliding-glass panels. They open onto a terrace in the seaside condo we recently purchased. The glass doors don't reach all the way to the top of the wall, resulting in a low-ceiling look. Other than traverse curtains, which we don't like, do you have a suggestion?A: Several kinds of shades would be appropriate for a seaside setting. They could be hung from the ceiling and be adjusted to any height.But because of the expanse of the sliding doors, more than a single shade will probably be required.

A man fatally shot by a Baltimore County police officer Sunday through a closed glass storm door had charged at the officer while brandishing a large knife after his girlfriend told a 911 operator that he was "fixing to get someone hurt," authorities said. Officers had also been told that the man was suicidal and his girlfriend had told dispatchers that the "first person who comes near him will get stabbed. " "He was a very dangerous individual," said police spokeswoman Elise Armacost, who quoted from a transcript of the emergency call to blunt criticism from witnesses who called the shooting unjustified.

In the wake of the recent earthquake ("A tremor in the psyche," Aug 24), I asked people about their initial thoughts on what caused the shaking and swaying. My father thought he was having a stroke. My mother thought it was a truck rumbling by her office. Having served four years of active duty with the U.S. Navy, stationed in the Washington Navy Yard on September 11, 2001, I thought it was a terrorist attack. These generational and location oriented responses led me to my next question, which was what are you supposed to do in an earthquake and what are you supposed to do during and after an explosion.

KANSAS CITY, Mo. - No moat, no battlements, no portcullis defend the house in the new Olathe, Kan., subdivision. But in lots of less-than-obvious ways, the house will be more like a castle than the average new dwelling. Features from a basement "safe room" to high-mounted floodlights are designed to thwart burglars and make the house a modern suburban stronghold. "We want people to say, `Where's the stuff at?'" said homebuilder Dave Allen, who is putting up the house along with business partner Ron Olberding in the Foxfield Village subdivision.

Having grown up in a Tudor-style rowhouse in Original Northwood, Jonathan Bandell knew the neighborhood well. Particularly a house a mere two doors from his parents - having lugged groceries there when he was a kid. So when the owner, an 88-year-old widow, decided it was time to leave her home of 50 years, she picked up the phone and called Bandell's mother, inquiring if she knew anyone who would be interested in buying the house. Of course, the buyer would have to be a good fit for the neighborhood, as well as someone devoted to taking care of the house.
