Generations ago, Baltimore poet Folger McKinsey wrote "Charles Street in the Fall" about a stroll through the city. On Saturday, his descendents gathered for their 100th reunion, where they ate, played games and celebrated their heritage. "It's neat that this will carry on," said organizer and distant relative Glenn Opperman Sr. of New Jersey. Wearing turn-of-the-century garb to commemorate the centennial, Opperman, 60, said, "We're all afraid to say, 'This is it.'" On Saturday, the extended family gathered at Brandywine Springs State Park, site of the first family picnic in 1910, to continue the legacy and to remember the past.

"We can no longer compete on the cost of labor with countries like China," says Olivetti chief Carlo De Benedetti. "What we have to leverage is our know-how."Right on. Unfortunately, we don't know how to do it.Seventeen thousand Price Waterhouse consultants and accountants are using Notes, Lotus Development's new work-group technology system, CIO magazine reports. But most applications of the software have been mundane. Why? "Fostering the shared work-group vision that lies behind Notes has proved elusive," reporter Thomas Kiely concludes.

Children poured out of the doors of Folger McKinsey Elementary School, eagerly presenting their mothers paintings and paper birds that they had made. But some of the children were showing off another item they had collected during the day - bottles of hand sanitizer. Dismissal time at the Severna Park elementary school, where one pupil was identified as likely having swine flu, was subdued Thursday afternoon because nearly half the students did not come to school. But parents who were picking up their children said that they were not very worried, even as the White House announced that an Anne Arundel County man who recently traveled to Mexico in advance of President Barack Obama also probably has swine flu, as do three members of his family.

"People are everything," proclaims the umpteenth chief executive in the umpteenth annual report. But often as not, his or her actions belie these high-sounding words.Then there's McKinsey & Co., the management consultants, described by Professor Richard Bettis of Southern Methodist University as "an empty box that then goes out and figures what to do each time" it takes on a client. Fashioning a business that's perpetually reinvented into a highly profitable, billion-dollar-plus, global enterprise is possible for only one reason: McKinsey is its talent.

The nearly 600 pupils at Folger McKinsey Elementary School certainly were excited when the school's National Blue Ribbon flag was unveiled - cheering and clapping and pumping their little fists in the air as they sang the school's "We Rock, We Rule" anthem. But the pupils sounded most excited when it was announced that they would each be getting a doughnut with red, white and blue sprinkles with their lunch Monday as a reward. They'd earned the treats. The U.S. Department of Education named Folger McKinsey a National Blue Ribbon School - a designation also earned by five other Maryland schools last year.

Verlyn Klinkenborg, writing in The New York Times earlier this week, recalled Walt Whitman's Leaves of Grass on the 150th anniversary of its publication. Whitman, considered perhaps the nation's greatest poet, even helped set the type of his most enduring work, first published on July 4, 1855. For the next 37 years, the Good Gray Poet, as Whitman became known, expanded Leaves of Grass from the original 12 poems published in 1855 to the 389 in the eighth and final edition at his death in 1892.
