An open letter to Comcast chairman Brian Roberts: Dear Mr. Roberts, Congratulations on buying Home Team Sports the other day. In case you didn't already know it, you picked up a pretty decent television property, and in this day and age, when people like sludge peddler, er, wrestling chief Vince McMahon, are pushing into the mainstream, there's something to be said for respectable. The thing is, not so long ago, HTS used to be more than pretty decent.

The 1990s will be over in 70 days, but the decade's cash-happy, technology-obsessed spirit shows no sign of dying. Yesterday, yet another high-technology company went public and made a serious boatload of money.The latest grabber of the brass ring: Aether Systems Inc. of Owings Mills. The 3-year-old wireless data company saw its shares more than triple in value -- from $16 to a close of $48.4375 on the Nasdaq market. Thanks to this steep rise, Aether now has a market value of $1.26 billion.
