Baltimore County's Web site has a new address and has changed in its content in an effort to streamline the resource and make it easier for residents to use. The new address is www.balti morecountyonline.info, replacing the old address, which officials say was difficult to remember. "We want to make it a little more user-friendly for the public," said Alonza Williams of the county's Office of Information Technology. "The old address was too cumbersome." In what Williams called "the process of putting a whole new face" on the Web site, users have access to conveniences such as paying parking tickets online, downloading bids for county projects and subscribing to community newsletters.

IN THE spring of 1990, John Morris, a New York City firefighter and an old friend of mine, rolled up with Ladder 27 to the Happy Land social club in the Bronx, where a tragedy of unspeakable proportions had just occurred. A jilted lover, out of his mind with rage, had splashed a couple of gallons of gasoline at the entrance. Then he lit a match. The club, which catered mainly to Hispanics, was operating illegally, with the windows boarded up and only one door operational. As the club erupted in flames, the crowd stampeded to the rear and was trapped.
