When Lamar Alexander stopped in Baltimore a year ago on his quest for the presidency, he was asked why he had accepted $232,000 merely for stepping down from the board of Martin Marietta Corp. when it merged with Lockheed Corp.After all, an ordinary aerospace worker might not earn that much in six years of full-time work. And even as the former Tennessee governor and other top company officials were reaping their payoffs, 12,000 workers were losing their jobs.Yet Mr. Alexander shrugged off the question.

Remember John Malkovich as the hulking, childlike killer in the movie "Of Mice and Men"?

Two brothers were shot outside Thurgood Marshall High School yesterday afternoon just as the school day ended, creating a panic on an East Baltimore campus already beset by weeks of fires and fistfights. Their wounds were not life-threatening, according to police. The shooting amid dozens of students heading for buses home marked the most serious violence at a city school this fall, leaving frightened parents questioning whether to keep their children in class. "I'm concerned about my daughter's safety and the safety of the other kids who want to learn," said Reginald Jones, whose daughter is a sophomore at the school.
