Most of you remember him as the longtime Ellicott City Middle School teacher who vanished under mysterious circumstances.

The elder statesman of the Maryland Senate faces one of the year's youngest challengers. A Baltimore lawmaker is battling an upstart who hadn't been born when he first took office. And in Montgomery, Prince George's and Washington counties, ambitious delegates are trying to unseat veteran senators. With the much of the state divided into safe Democratic or Republican districts, the party primary contests on Tuesday will decide election winners in many corners of Maryland. While no wholesale changes are expected in the 188-seat General Assembly, national sentiment against incumbents has inspired an outpouring of candidates working to propel lawmakers out of posts they've held for decades.

Throughout her 23 years in Cherry Hill, Taneal Munson has become familiar with the sound of gunshots. So have her sons, ages 6 and 8. But Monday night, just as the boys had finished their evening bath, never had the family heard them so close, so loud. "My sister yelled from downstairs, `Get the kids and get down on the floor!'" Munson said. "It was like a big pop. I knew it was a gunshot. Fireworks don't sound like that." Yesterday, family members broke the news to the boys - the gunshot had struck and killed Edward Smith, 14, known affectionately in the neighborhood by his nickname, "Milkman."

On a recent Sunday night, three men sat at Red Emma's Bookstore and Coffeehouse, Baltimore's newest anarchist infoshop. They were there to see a screening of several films produced by the Independent Media Center. The organizer of the evening's activities, John Duda, seemed disappointed with the turnout. "Was anything else going on tonight?" he asked. One customer, with a mop of brown hair, volunteered a reason why so few comrades-in-arms turned out for the event: "The Anarchists Union and the Women's Healthcare Collective meet on Sunday nights," he said.
