Well, this certainly gives support to the fool-for-a-client adage. The cover story of the current Washington Monthly tells one of those tales that would be unbelievable, except that it's set in Baltimore - which is where all strange ideas eventually seem to come, not to die but to blossom and flourish against all reason. The story, by Kevin Carey, an analyst at a Washington think tank, is about how a group of Baltimore men facing federal charges of murder, drug dealing and racketeering is using a bizarre legal argument in their defense.

Duffel bags stuffed with clothing lay strewn about the wooden gym floor at an East Baltimore church yesterday -- the baggage of 30 young people ready for the trip of their lives. Members of the Maryland State Boychoir, ages 11 to 18, were gathering at the Cathedral Church of St. Matthew for a flight to Europe and a singing tour of the continent. "It's an experience that I probably never would have had, and I just thank the choir for giving it to me," said Darius Pugh, 12, a three-year choir member from Northeast Baltimore, as the activity unfolded around him. "Controlled mayhem, we like to call it," said Boychoir founder and artistic director Frank T. Cimino.

At the time he was born on the outskirts of Baltimore, the view from Doug Carroll's bedroom window had not changed appreciably from his grandmother's day. The big sunlit rooms looked over lawns and huge old trees that verged onto a landscape textured delightfully by streams and pasture and fields. This in turn gave way to forest-cloaked slopes on both east and west that walled the long sweep of the valley floor. It was, he recalls, at once both ''beautiful and ordinary -- most of the country around here looked that way.''By 1950, when Mr. Carroll was a boy of 10, unprecedented changes were altering much of the Maryland landscape, especially the Baltimore region.
