And where, in a job interview, you have little idea of how to conduct yourself, what to say, when to smile, whether your clothes are correct.Hundreds of Soviet immigrants to Baltimore, new arrivals in an historic wave of emigration, face those obstacles. Here are the stories of three families and their struggle for the American dream.

In the City That Reads, as Baltimore bills itself, could any building be more important than a library?More to the point, could any building be more susceptible at the moment to abuse from architects looking for prominent civic commissions that will allow them to foist their idiosyncratic design visions on an unsuspecting public?Two library projects in Baltimore -- the Peabody Institute's recently completed Music Library and Academic Building at St. Paul and Monument streets, and the Maryland Library for the Blind and Physically Handicapped, proposed for the southeast corner of Franklin Street and Park Avenue -- illustrate ways architects sometimes use public funds to carry out very private design visions.
