I was shocked by a recent article that described a driving under the influence of alcohol case in Howard County wherein a Howard County judge dismissed a DUI charge against a 22-year-old woman because the judge believed the police may have been operating under some instructions that sounded a lot like a "quota" system. The Howard County police responded that some federal grant money they had been given had some "strings," some requirements if you will, that when spelled out in an email sounded a lot like a quota system.

From Pandora to Dracula, the Theatre Project's 2000-2001 season will explore subjects ranging from women's issues to the personal odyssey of Obie Award winner David Drake, whose latest work, "Son of Drakula," will have its world premiere here in the spring. "There's a strong emphasis on distinctive voices," said executive director Robert P. Mrozek. He described the seven-show season as "a bit more language-based performance than in the recent past." An eighth show may be added. Here's the lineup: "Pandora's Box," Nov. 3-19.

OAKLAND, Calif. - In the beginning, there was music. Childhood and young adulthood floated by to a soundtrack of lyrics and rhythms and searing guitar riffs that consumed you, became you, constituted your identity, galvanized your intent, spoke your soul. But time passes, classrooms fade to cubicles, and a vast landscape of new music turns foreign and unexplored. For Jeff Hersh, 31, the stereo came to double as Proust's madeleine, its purpose to invoke memories rather than create them.

The exhibit "Pandora's Box: Women in Classical Greece," which ends its run at the Walters Art Gallery on Sunday, must be counted as one of Baltimore's most successful art shows, ever.Critics have loved it. So have scholars. Attendance is expected to greatly exceed pre-opening estimates. Financially, there's a chance the show will come close to breaking even, a rarity for museum shows. Even the bulky catalog, weighing in at a hefty $39.95 for the paperback, has sold three times as many copies as the pre-exhibit estimate.
