Prices: appetizers, $1.35-$5.75; entrees, $8.95-$16.95. ***What is the world coming to when you ask for a glass of white wine at a nice, old-fashioned crab house (OK, that was the first mistake), and the waiter says, "White zinfandel or white Chablis?"Next they'll be serving tiramisu for dessert.Not to worry, in almost every other respect Schultz's Crab House seems timeless: a family-owned and family-operated business where the hard shells are enormous and as good as they get.It's a pleasure to sit down in Schultz's inviting dining room, with its knotty pine walls, leaping marlins and paper-covered tables with red paper place mats on top. The place is friendly and unpretentious, like the people who work there.

"House of Cards,"the $100 million Netflix series starring Kevin Spacey, is looking for Washington types, where else but in the Baltimore area where the production is based. I love all the money Baltimore is making off of being the smart and inexpensive alternative to shooting in bureaucracy-bound, incentive-challenged D.C. I love it, love it, love it. Here's the call from the producers, and, I suppose, if a few real "Hill staffers, aides or reporters" from D.C. sent their CVs, they might be considered.

There was no mistaking Mary Schaub as she passed along the streets of Charles Village. I never saw her in any footwear but high heels. This time of the year, she might be sporting a mink stole over a tailored suit. She was easy to chat up and seemed to invite casual conversation at the bus stop. She had a tradition-heavy Baltimore job. She was a pari-mutuel clerk, another way of saying she sold or cashed tickets at Pimlico or Laurel. We often spoke of the pleasures and perils of playing the ponies.

The 8,000-square-foot Guilford mansion owned by Towson University that provided posh housing for its president - and a headache for the institution - may be back on the market soon. The university is seeking to put the president's house, located in Baltimore and more than four miles from campus, up for sale. The home led to a president's ouster shortly after the university purchased it more than a decade ago, and has cost the university tens of thousands of dollars a year to maintain.

Last month, Attorney General William Barr announced that a special counsel would conduct a probe of the House of Representatives' bank. The statute establishing truly independent special counsels -- for example, Lawrence Walsh in the Iran-contra investigation -- does not apply to probes of congressional misdeeds. But even special counsels answerable to the attorney general, as is his choice in this case, Malcolm Wilkey, can be independent. Remember Archibald Cox? He was in that situation and pushed the Watergate investigation so far President Nixon ordered him fired.

The Samuel Owings House, one of the oldest in Baltimore County, won a place last night on the county's landmarks preservation list -- a development that will delay plans to move the house and build offices on the site.The county Landmarks Preservation Commission's 9-0 vote also means that Richard Pirone can continue to run the Fiori Restaurant and Wine Cellar Pub at the house. He and a partner have been operating restaurants in the house for 18 years.With the house now on a temporary preservation list, the structure must stay put until the County Council votes on the issue this year, or in early 1996.
