Ravens cornerback Chris Carr is everywhere, all at once. He had played in 97 straight games before being injured in this year's season opener, where he was part of a defense that forced a franchise-record seven turnovers in a 35-7 victory over the Pittsburgh Steelers. On the field, Carr is praised for his initiative, versatility and camaraderie with his teammates. Off the field, he's spent time interning at a law firm, a profession he plans to pursue after football. Last winter, the engaging political science major from Boise State was presented with the media's Good Guy Award for his accessibility and candor.

You seek help on retirement planning and your financial adviser suggests Monte Carlo, drumming up visions in your head of your nest egg disappearing on the spin of a roulette wheel. Time to get a new adviser? Not quite. More likely, the adviser is recommending an increasingly popular financial planning tool: Monte Carlo simulation. It's a mathematical technique that can generate thousands of potential situations using random variables to estimate the probability of an outcome. And when used in retirement planning, it allows investors to put their portfolios and retirement goals through hundreds and even thousands of economic scenarios via computer to figure the likelihood of success.

I entertain a strange and ridiculous thought while sitting for a moment in the District Court of Maryland, Baltimore Division, listening to a handsome and well-tailored police detective describe a young man's botched attempt at murder by handgun last month in the city: Couldn't we get Dr. Benjamin Carson, the esteemed neurosurgeon at Johns Hopkins, to rewire some brains? Wouldn't that help reduce the homicide rate? As I said, strange and ridiculous. ... Excuse me. Here we are in June, approaching the halfway point of the year and the edge of summer, and I must be going through my annual fed-up Baltimorean thing.

For 71 years, the auto plant on Broening Highway churned out Monte Carlos and El Caminos and, later, Safari and Astro vans. But neither the Chevy nor the General Motors brands, nor any of their models will live on in the name of the new East Baltimore industrial park slated to replace the demolished van plant. Instead, its developers, who solicited help from the community in renaming the site, have settled on "Chesapeake Commerce Center," a nod to the purpose and geographical identity of the new park.

THE LUBITSCH TOUCH -- The second phase of the American Film Institute's tribute to the great German-American director Ernst Lubitsch (1892-1947), The Lubitsch Touch, kicks off tonight at the AFI's Silver Theatre in Silver Spring, 8633 Colesville Road, with Monte Carlo. Few directors of the late-silent, early-talkie era met with as much success as Lubitsch, who had an unerring ability to make even the most problematic situation seem both classy and funny; his To Be Or Not to Be, with Jack Benny as a hammy Shakespearean actor working his way through Poland, poked fun at the Nazis and was one of the great comedies of the 1940s.

WANT SOME advice? Ask your broker where she's getting hers. Last month, the NASD began allowing brokers to use computer simulation programs that forecast, for example, the probability that a client's strategy will cover his retirement needs. That widened an active playing field. Financial planners, advisers and investment firms' Web sites offer a slew of these computer models directly or indirectly to clients. Today's most popular model, Monte Carlo, was developed decades ago for scientific analysis but has roared into financial planning in recent years as costs have declined.

He knows the futility of trying to be witty with the help.For one thing their feet are tired, and they are steaming internally because the straw boss has been throwing his weight around, and they didn't want to grow up to be headwaiters and grocery checkers anyhow.He wanted to be a croupier at Monte Carlo; she, a Navy fighter pilot detached from the fleet for special duty as an astronaut.
