Responding to a federal appeal, Maryland's transportation secretary ordered last night new inspections of 10 Maryland bridges of a design similar to the Minnesota bridge that collapsed into the Mississippi River on Wednesday evening. Secretary John D. Porcari assured residents that the state's bridges are sound. "No Marylander should be concerned about the safety of our bridges," he said at a news conference earlier in the day. "When our bridges need repair, it's a priority. We make it happen."

The Baltimore Marathon will follow its third course in as many years. The third annual event will be held Oct. 18. The start and finish lines will remain north and south of Oriole Park, respectively, but several adjustments have been made to the 26.2-mile course. Last year, just shy of the course's 11-mile mark, runners turned around near the southern end of the Vietnam Veterans Memorial Bridge, and Martin Luther King Boulevard was again used as a closing stretch. According to Lee Corrigan, whose firm runs the event, the Baltimore City Police Department requested that the bridge and boulevard be eliminated from the course.

He held jobs with several local breweries and worked a night shift handling mechanical parts at what became the Martin-Marietta Corp. before applying to the Baltimore Fire Department.

In 1952, Maryland's two kingdoms were joined when the original, 4.3-mile Chesapeake Bay Bridge - officially called the William Preston Lane Jr. Memorial Bridge - replaced two ferries that took two hours to cross the bay from a point near Annapolis to the Eastern Shore. Not surprisingly, traffic jams quickly ensued, and by 1973 a three-lane parallel structure was opened to relieve the pressure. Later in the 1970s there was talk about building two more Chesapeake Bay bridges - a Northern Bay Bridge from Miller Island near Edgemere in Baltimore County to Tolchester Beach in Kent County, and a Southern Bay Bridge from Lusby in Calvert County to Taylors Island in Dorchester County.

As I drove north from the Delaware Memorial Bridge, I could feel my "R's" flying out the back vent windows, littering the road under the "Welcome to New Jersey" sign. The preposition "of" instantly changed to a simple "a," and I coulda sworn a buncha superlatives entered my brain, because as I closed my windows, I thought: "I'm gonna freeze if I don't put on a sweata, what is this, Antarctica?" It's what happens whenever I return to the state where I attended college, next to the land where I grew up, Long Island.
