Ms. Mirabella had the courage and, perhaps, the lack of imagination of an enlistee.Born in Newark, N. J., of a middle-class, Italian-American, "Depression" parentage, Ms. Mirabella was self-made. While many other women of her generation hoped for the support of a husband, Ms. Mirabella relied on herself.

Potential homebuyers older than age 50 have little interest in moving to smaller homes or active adult communities, contrary to long-held assumptions about aging buyers, according to a survey by ERA Real Estate. The survey of more than 1,500 people age 50 or older showed changing attitudes about real estate. Only 8 percent of those considering a move in the next five years said that they might consider buying a home in an active adult community, but 61 percent said they would consider buying a single-family home.

But it took a fishnet top with gardenia pasties, at Chanel no less, to make members of the world's most fashion savvy audience admit they were mildly shocked.Once again this spring, European designers -- and even a few in New York -- spun their most fantastic ideas down the runway.

The furloughs and other measures, including leaving six vacant positions unfilled and cutting back on some smaller exhibitions, will trim the BMA's budget by 6.5 percent, or just under $900,000. The BMA is also canceling the 3-year-old ArtBlast festival, part of Free Fall Baltimore, and continuing a pay freeze and partial hiring freeze.
