Lenny Shapiro spots Broadway star John Glover on a New York street.You have to talk to my girls, she beseeches Mr. Glover, the Towson State graduate who clinched a Tony for dual roles in "Love! Valour! Compassion!" They're going to be at the "LVC" matinee on Aug. 9, she tells him."Oh, my God," he says, "I'm going to be on vacation.""John, you were going to be on vacation," Lenny says. "Don't let us down. We're from Baltimore, for God's sake!"No one says no to Lenny, who has coaxed, prodded and coddled everyone from heavy-hitting Broadway producers to purveyors of low-fat snacks to offer their best to Diversions, her deluxe tour company.

If Len Bias could attend his own Hall of Fame ceremony on Friday , he'd do so as a 50-year-old man. That's a heck of a thing to wrap your head around if, like me, you grew up as an obsessed ACC basketball fan in the 1980s. Lenny has lived as an idea about what could have been for so long, it's strange to think of him as an actual person. Every generation has its touchstones. For my parents, it was the Kennedy assassination. People my age remember watching from their elementary school classrooms as the Challenger exploded and later on, 9/11.

Preakness Saturday used to be a hectic workday for veteran Baltimore restaurateurs Lenny and Gail Kaplan. It still is for Gail, whose father, Leon Shavitz, co-owned the old Pimlico Hotel. Gail will be managing a private party today for the catering business where she works. "I'm 67 now, and I still like to work," Gail said one day this week. "It came from my father. I have a need to please people." Her husband, Lenny, who is fully retired, might play a little basketball or read a newspaper from cover to cover.

The idea at CBS is that "Lenny" is supposed to out-blue collar ABC's "Roseanne."It is about as good as most ideas at last-place CBS these days.Lenny Callahan (Lenny Clark) is another television character, like Uncle Buck, who comes off as more offensive than funny. For example, Lenny is told tonight that his father needs an artificial hip, which will cost $25,000. "Twenty-five thousand!" Lenny screams at the doctor. "For $25,000 I can cure him. A pizza, six hookers and a Lincoln Town Car."

Lenny Kaplan, an elite name on the Baltimore restaurant scene, is not one to see the glass half empty. Of course, he might wonder if the glass could be a tad more polished, or served quicker, or filled exactly to the level it's always been filled, or offered in better lighting, or on a tablecloth spread with greater precision, or generally represent absolutely his quite well-defined notion of what the customer wants in a glass. This is something of what makes Lenny, Lenny - a man noted both for setting high standards and occasionally chewing heads off the help.

If I had to learn one new thing from each "Housewives" episode, tonight would be the phrase “Draconian Antics.” The “Draconian” stems from the ancient Athenian law maker, Draco, and basically means “small offenses that carry harsh punishment.” Bet you didn't think we were going to learn something from these crazy, catty ladies, did you? This was a phrase used by Adriana to describe her former bestie, Lea, and the way she has been acting toward her. But this is the meat of the recap, so let's start with a side, shall we?

Ravens owner Steve Bisciotti says the team will make plans for a statue of Ray Lewis to honor The Great Mufasa for his stellar football career in Baltimore. And that's a good idea, but what about Lenny Moore ? First things first, please. "Without a doubt Ray Lewis is one of the greatest middle linebackers in NFL history, if not the greatest," says Marvin "Doc" Cheatham, coordinator of a Lenny Moore statue committee that formed a couple of years ago. "However, there must be a statue made this year, when the great Lenny Moore turns 80 years young, to finally recognize him for his great athletic accomplishments, but also for his outstanding and long-standing contributions to just about every public service and philanthropic cause Maryland has had. "We can talk about many athletes, but none in the history of Maryland has given to the community for as long, in as many areas, to just about every cause imaginable and without due recognition and thanks.

Completing its February run of three weekends at Bowie Playhouse, Prince George's Little Theatre offers fresh insight into Beth Henley's dark comedy "Crimes of the Heart" — winner of the 1981 Pulitzer Prize and New York Drama Critics Circle Award. Three decades after its premiere, Henley's folksy tale continues to provide a showcase for a strong ensemble of actors. It tells the story of three sisters who grew up in Hazlehurst, Miss., and return there at a difficult time for the youngest, as well as for the grandfather who raised them.

The photograph hangs in Lenny Moore 's club basement, amid the hundreds of trophies, plaques and keepsakes that chronicle the life of the Baltimore Colts Hall of Fame running back. But few treasures mean as much to Moore as the black-and-white snapshot of him and his mentor, former Penn State football coach Joe Paterno, with their arms draped around one another. Were the two to meet today, Moore said, they would again embrace. Never mind Paterno's recent dismissal in the wake of child sex abuse charges brought against onetime Penn State assistant Jerry Sandusky.

Bob Beaumont had been teaching tennis for several years before coming to the Baltimore Tennis and Fitness Center in Pikesville to work for tennis guru Lenny Schloss. "My method produced hit-and-miss results," Beaumont said. "I had researched tennis and read instructional guides and hints in Tennis magazine. But when I came here, I found Lenny's program really cut through a lot of the mental static in my own game, as well as in the games of my students. I got rid of the mental interference and I found I could translate that to the people I was teaching."

Schmoke would step down from office this month, his hairdresser knew for sure.For the past 40 years, Lenny Clay has cropped the hair of Baltimore's top African-American politicians and government leaders at Lenny's House of Naturals in West Baltimore. As barber to the politically connected, Clay is often the first to learn political developments, a valuable commodity as the city approaches its first mayoral race without an incumbent in almost 30 years.

Is it time for a statue to Lenny Moore , too? The great man, who played beautiful football for the Colts when they were Baltimore's team, turns 78 this Friday, and his admirers think that's an appropriate time to discuss commissioning a statue and getting on with a permanent public tribute. The idea would be a bronzed likeness of Mr. Moore, his big right hand cupped around a football held close to his side as he makes one of those great runs - usually after snaring a pass from Johnny Unitas - that live in the memory of so many Baltimoreans who cheered for the Colts in the stadium now gone from 33rd Street.

Lenny's Deli added a third location in Harborplace a few months ago, and just last week it threw itself a grand opening. Lenny's still operates in Harborplace and Owings Mills, but this expansion wasn't without its risks. So far, so good, says reviewer John Lindner, who discovered there a praiseworthy Reuben. Here's what else Lindner found at the new Lenny's Deli , which, I'm happy to pass along, serves breakfast all day.
