The Ehrlich boys sure love their summer Slurpees. Even the 50-something Ehrlich kid is not averse to indulging on the way home from those hot summer football practices. (Mom does not share our male addiction but usually lets us slide in the interest of family unity.) That the Ehrlich Slurpee bonding experience takes place in Annapolis and not New York City is a good thing, as the Big Apple now deals with the latest assault on individual freedom from Mayor Michael Bloomberg. The successor to the wildly successful Rudy Giuliani is a billionaire Democrat-turned-Republican-turned-independent.

A group of major financial companies had agreed to pay $5 million to build a new police museum, to be run by New York Police Commissioner Howard Safir's wife in a nonsalaried post. In return, the Police Department brass would shift 200 patrol officers to Wall Street.This agreement -- cash for city police protection -- is only one example of how the stock market boom has changed the balance of power in America's largest city.

Six months after going public, Orion Power Holdings Inc. announced yesterday that its first-quarter earnings soared 82 percent, mostly due to the energy company's significant advances in building power plants across the country. In the three months that ended March 31, Orion, an independent power generating company, posted net income of $15.1 million compared with $8.3 million in the first quarter a year ago, when it was privately held. Earnings per share were 15 cents compared with 22 cents a year ago, a drop attributed to the company issuing 60.2 million more shares after its initial public offering in November.

WITH THE MIGHT of city voters' mandate, Mayor Martin O'Malley made clear yesterday that he won't tinker with a radical crime-fighting plan recommended by his consultants. This is the reality the City Council and others need to take into account as the process for naming the successor to Commissioner Ronald L. Daniel moves ahead. They may argue about the wisdom of the mayor's choice of Edward T. Norris, a former New York City deputy commissioner, to run the Baltimore Police Department. But the 152-page crime-fighting blueprint, in Mr. O'Malley's judgment, is non-negotiable.
