Muncie, Ind., was the nation's most affordable housing market in the first quarter of 2000, as higher interest rates caused overall U.S. housing affordability to decline significantly from 1999. The National Association of Home Builders' Housing Opportunity Index said families earning the median income of $50,200 could afford to buy 62.8 percent of the homes sold nationwide in the first three months of 2000, down 6.8 percent from 1999. The Baltimore metropolitan area was ranked 60th. Families earning the median income of $63,100 could afford to purchase 74.1 percent of the homes sold.

The day Robert L. Wilkins was pulled over by a Maryland state trooper and the car he was riding in searched, he was 29 years old and a newly minted lawyer about to learn how slow the wheels of justice turn. It was May 8, 1992, and he was on his way home to Washington from Chicago, where he'd attended the funeral of his grandfather. A light rain fell as the rented Cadillac his cousin drove entered the state's western mountains. This was only days after a Los Angeles jury acquitted white police officers of beating a black motorist named Rodney King.

Chances are you're reading this with a cup of coffee, tea or soda within reach. Rest assured, the evidence so far on such caffeine-containing beverages suggests you can take another sip without worry. "When it comes to unexplained health problems, it's easy to point a finger at caffeine, especially since caffeine does have effects on the body," says Dr. Herbert Muncie, a family-practice physician and professor at the University of Maryland. But Muncie agrees with other experts who believe that caffeine's effects do not pose health risks for most people.
