I ADMIT it: I cut through.To get from Northeast Baltimore to Roland Avenue to my daughter's school, I drive through residential streets in Homeland and Roland Park. Anyone who has tried to negotiate Northern Parkway or Cold Spring Lane knows how sclerotic Baltimore's east-west arteries are. So people cut through.This commuter traffic does not please residents of Homeland, to whom apparently, we motorists on our way to school and work are a crowd of bashi-bazouks galloping over the hill to plunder their houses and slaughter their cattle.

The former South African apartheid government's designation of black "homelands" was a fraud that never achieved credibility. Small parcels of least-valuable land were set aside for a majority of the population. All that is past history. But now an unreconstructed purist named Constand Viljoen, a former army commander, is crusading for a homeland -- but this time where a white, Afrikaner culture could flourish. It would be geographically and economically within South Africa but politically separate.

Homeland, the third jewel in Baltimore's triple crown of planned neighborhoods, followed the earlier development of Roland Park and Guilford in the 1920s. Its rich history has been chronicled by Barbara M. Stevens, who has resided in Homeland most of her life, in a recently published updated edition of her 1976 book, Homeland: History & Heritage. Proceeds from sales of the book benefit the Homeland Community Foundation Inc., which supports continued beautification of the neighborhood and preservation of its public areas through landscaping.
