Editor's note: Now all grown up, a famous trespasser tries to make amends. As a child she was known as Goldilocks, and she was very naughty indeed. Her favorite hobby was snooping in houses where no one was at home until, of course, all that dreadful trouble with the bears. Then Goldilocks grew up. She shortened her name and pinned her curls so no one would recognize her. Goldi opened a shop to help people protect themselves against snoops. But no matter how she tried to leave her life of crime behind, it haunted her day and night.

Ted Cruz may not have killed Obamacare with his 21-hour speech on the Senate floor this week. He may not have endeared himself to most of his Republican colleagues who think his grandstanding wasted precious time. He may not have done anything good for the country, given that his extended harangue has made a government shutdown more likely. But he probably did something good for one person: Ted Cruz. The freshman Republican senator from Texas is an upstart, a renegade and a destructive force -- not the kind of personality that generally does well in the tradition-bound United States Senate.

One out of three adults takes an aspirin a day to prevent a heart attack. But after two decades of research, doctors are still divided over how much aspirin they should take. Some researchers believe a low-dose, 81-milligram "baby aspirin" is good enough to reduce the risk of heart attacks -- and they say thousands suffer from unnecessary stomach bleeding because they take a standard 325-milligram pill. "Too many people are taking a full dose of aspirin," said Dr. Jeffrey Berger, a cardiologist at Duke University Medical Center.

THE "GOLDILOCKS Economy" enjoyed by U.S. consumers for much of this decade got its nickname for a reason: For the nation to enjoy prosperity of this duration, every factor influencing the economy had to be "just right."And, yet, it hasn't always seemed that way.Take the labor shortage, which -- even now, after three interest-rate increases by the Federal Reserve -- continues to afflict key growth industries nationwide and in Maryland. For the country, the unemployment rate for November stood at 4.1 percent, matching October for the lowest rate in 29 years.

They call him the "Goldilocks burglar."A man who broke into an Edgewater home last week decided to heat up some frozen lasagna, strip down to his gray boxer shorts and take a nap on the couch.The homeowner's granddaughter discovered him when she awoke the next morning and saw remnants of his buttered bread on the dining room table. Anne Arundel County police were called to the home to wake up the droopy-eyed man. He smelled strongly of alcohol, according to the police report, and told the officer that he believed he "belonged at the home."

GOLDILOCKS is again spoofing the bears. An economy that is neither too hot nor too cold but just about right is fully justified in claiming the fairy-tale lass as its own. On Wall Street she rules supreme now that the bellwether Dow Jones Industrial Average has confirmed its breakthrough above the 6000 mark. Government reports showing inflation firmly under control, unemployment at a modest 5 percent and economic growth on a slow, steady upward path have eased fears of an increase in short-term interest rates even when the election is over.

MARYLAND'S FIRST bear hunt in more than half a century was over in just one day last week after nimrods bagged 20 bruins. (I believe that I have my hunting clichM-is in order there.) The first Ursus americanus tagged was a very modest 84-pound female (about the size of a big Labrador retriever). The beast was said to be 10 months old, in bear terms a small child, probably still with its mother in Western Maryland. Most Americans know bears only from children's literature, in which the bear is a fixture.

Ruth Nophlin doesn't need Alan Greenspan to tell her about the economy. She has lived it. In four years, the 43-year-old Northeast Baltimore woman has gone from being thrown out of a job when London Fog moved its manufacturing operations overseas to taking computer classes to working as an office supervisor for a Towson technical training company. Now, she has more work than she can handle and earns more money than she ever has. Part of the credit for her recovery goes to Nophlin's resilience.

LAUREL -- Wide Country surged to the front entering the stretch at Laurel Race Course yesterday and went on to win by 4 1/2 lengths over the rallying Ritchie Trail.In winning the $150,000 Maryland Juvenile Fillies Championship in an upset of heavily favored Gala Goldilocks, Wide Country probably wrapped up the 1990 championship for Maryland-bred 2-year-old fillies.The title will come after year-end voting, but considering her triumph yesterday, experts could offer no other contenders.Wide Country also provided profit for the first time for owner Tommy Tanner of Wilmington, Del., who paid $50,000 for the filly last winter.
