Sleek, swift, a portent of tomorrow's transportation. light rail has come to Glen Burnie. For the $2.50 round trip fare, we're the Jetsons, rocketing off to work or play.Born and bred in the suburbs, I have had little practical experience with public transportation. Fear of exact change and paper transfer slips kept me off buses for the first three decades of my life.With this in mind, I approached the new light rail system with a certain amount of trepidation, curiosity and a roll of quarters.

A GREAT MANY social ills have been laid like kindling at the feet of the single parent. Her hands are tied (it is most often a mother) to the stake of public opinion as she waits for someone to strike a match.Poverty, difficulty at school, early experimentation with sex, drugs and alcohol, petty crime and delinquency. Social scientists confidently predict these things for the children of the woman who tries to raise them without a man around the house. She is blamed for every blemish on society from the disintegration of the family dinner hour to the epidemic of coldhearted teen-age criminals.

I used to hear my parents' friends bemoan the perception that time speeds up in direct ratio to increased age.Piffle, I thought, as a child. Time is time. It's constant: a second is a second and a minute is a minute.Boy, was I wrong! Forty-five years later I can attest that time is indeed relative, and often it's one of those relatives you wish was someone else's.Surely it was only a week and a half ago that I changed the images of my many wall calendars from June to July. Surely it wasn't more than a month ago that I was contemplating Memorial Day weekend in New Orleans, or writing about June's events as if summer were forever.

Last week I listed a few of the things that weren't around when I was in school, and I must today add another: electronic access to the world in general, and the print media in particular.Used to be when researching a term paper or writing a report, one spent hours in the library with periodicals that couldn't be underlined, cut up, or taken home. If you weren't finished at 9 o'clock when the library closed, you were out of luck -- particularly the procrastinators, whose papers were due the next morning.
