Say that you own a company that has, over the years, done quite a lot of business in and with the state of Maryland. In fact, the State Retirement and Pension System recently invested in a large piece of your company's stock. So, to show your appreciation to Maryland and its people, you had a CD made of "Maryland, My Maryland," which your sales staff distributed to customers and public schools across the state.Congratulations. By the terms of House Bill 718 -- the "gangsta rap" divestiture bill -- the State Retirement and Pension System may no longer invest in your company.

Lawrence E. Paradis, a retired cameraman whose career with WMAR-TV spanned nearly four decades, died Saturday of lung cancer at his Kingsville home. He was 87. Lawrence Ernest Paradis was born and raised in Groton, Conn., where he graduated in 1943 from Fitch High School. After high school, Mr. Paradis enlisted in the Marine Corps and he served in the Pacific theater as a radio operator. He fought at Peleliu and the Philippines and, near the end of the war, was attached to the fabled 6th Marine Division, helping to secure Tokyo Bay. Discharged with the rank of corporal in 1946, Mr. Paradis moved to Chicago, where he enrolled in the Lee De Forest Radio and Television School, earning his FCC radio and television licenses.

BOCA RATON, Fla.--It's Sunday -- 2 in the afternoon, to be exact -- and the blazing sun is bouncing sparks off the water shimmering in the pool. There's a Sunday-afternoon stillness outside. And the view through the soaring glass walls of this spectacular house is peaceful, almost bucolic: lush green grass, electric-blue skies and motionless, high banks of pearl-colored clouds.Inside, however, the pace is quite different.For one thing, a newspaper photographer is at the front door. For another, an ABC "PrimeTime Live" crew sent by Diane Sawyer is on its way. Then there's a reporter setting up a tape recorder in the living room and, somewhere in another room, there are sounds of a fax machine faxing and a phone ringing.

Cable News Network did the prudent thing in agreeing not to broadcast again tapes of Gen. Manuel Noriega talking to his lawyers' office until the issue of CNN's right to do so has been settled by the Supreme Court. The Supreme Court must act soon. Even press critics who believe CNN was wrong to broadcast the tape know in their hearts that a greater wrong was the issuance by Judge William Hoeveler in Miami of an order forbidding it to broadcast. That order must be vacated.We have no doubt it will be. It is widely understood by legal scholars specializing in free speech issues and by jurists that only in extreme cases -- reporting troop or ship movements in wartime, for example -- is prior restraint permissible.

Tomorrow, on Ray Lewis' 25th birthday, characters will converge in an unfolding drama that mixes pro football, celebrity, money, politics, rap music, wild parties, street brawling and homicide. Performing in an Atlanta courtroom will be some of the city's sharpest legal minds, including a smooth lawyer born to Southern gentry and a pony-tailed, tattooed maverick. Jurors and TV viewers will peer into a world of rap artists, hairstylists and small-time criminals, where a famous limousine, a mink coat and a champagne bottle figure in the fatal stabbings of two young men."

WASHINGTON -- Crimes of hate against Arabs and Jews rose to record levels in 1990, Arab-American and Jewish organizations said in separate reports yesterday.Arab-American leaders said ethnic animosities against Arabs in the United States had been aggravated by events such as the tensions in the Persian Gulf that led to war.Jewish leaders cited a mixture of factors, including a worsening economy, anti-Israel attitudes by some Americans and a loosening of social restraints on expressions of hatred, exemplified by the verbal assaults of the comedian Andrew Dice Clay and the graphically violent lyrics of musical groups such as 2 Live Crew.

Just a little misunderstanding. My fault. For a minute there it appeared I was guilty of unauthorized mall walking.It happened two Sunday mornings ago when I stopped in at the Marley Station mall for coffee. Right in front of the Vie de France coffee shop was this sign. No kidding: "ATTENTION WALKERS -- ALL MALL WALKERS MUST BE REGISTERED AND WEAR I.D.TAGS, VISIBLY, AT ALL TIMES. MALL WALKING IS PERMITTED BETWEEN 7:30 AM & 10 AM MONDAY THROUGH FRIDAY ONLY -- Thank you."This stopped me in my tracks.
