PARIS - Author W. Somerset Maugham once described Monaco as "a sunny spot for shady people." Last week, the French Parliament offered a few more details. In a scathing 400-page report, the Parliament said that the tiny principality - a famous refuge for wealthy tax dodgers - is an ideal place to launder money. It accused Monaco of having deliberately put into effect lax banking laws - including a guarantee of anonymity - to attract wealthy depositors. And it said that the monetary surveillance systems are so poor that even if Monaco officials wanted to cooperate in international efforts to prevent money laundering, they could not. "Monaco is one of the most hypocritical territories when it comes to the fight against money laundering," said Arnaud Montebourg, one of the Socialist members of Parliament who helped to write the report.

The Mediterranean Suites have soaking tubs for two, 37-inch flat-screen TVs, 500-thread-count Italian linens and a complimentary goldfish upon request. There are "Tall Rooms" with extra-long mattresses and giraffe print robes for "vertically gifted" guests, "Pet Parlor Rooms" for travelers with four-legged companions, and a living room where guests can gather for a daily wine hour. These are a few of the features at the Hotel Monaco Baltimore, a $65 million, 202-room "luxury boutique" hotel that opens today inside the former Baltimore & Ohio Railroad headquarters at 2 N. Charles St. This is the first property in Baltimore managed by San Francisco-based Kimpton Hotels & Restaurants, a company with a devoted following of business and leisure travelers.

Detractors of the Baltimore Grand Prix (or most things) typically speak in broad terms using "no one liked" or "everyone was glad to see it go. " These are typically false misnomers which apply only to their disgruntled clique of friends. I have friends who live in the immediate vicinity of the Baltimore Grand Prix who absolutely loved the event, and these are not car people. Thirty or so years ago, James Rouse's plan for the Inner Harbor had it's share of detractors, most of whom wouldn't dare admit as much today.
