JUDGING FROM the crowd at the old Parkway Theatre last weekend, it seemed as though every old moviehouse buff in Baltimore had called one another and started screaming, "The Parkway's opening." The 1915 theater, which closed in the late 1970s, was open last Saturday only as part of the "Gotta Have Art" event in the Station North Arts and Entertainment District. By the time I rolled in around 6 p.m., backlighted silhouettes of the visitors were clearly visible along the window overlooking North Avenue.

Mike Soukup was driving southbound on the Baltimore-Washington Parkway on Monday afternoon when he saw a stream of brake lights and then a pillar of smoke. He then saw a pickup truck sideways on its passenger side. One person had been ejected from the vehicle, he said, and another was pinned underneath the truck. He noticed a pool of gasoline forming on the pavement. Soukup, 55, pulled over where he saw a man waving at him in the middle of the highway to come help. He began helping the man try to push the truck back on its wheels.

The majorettes marched up the death lane in the bright sunshine yesterday.Stepping swiftly and suavely to the snap of snares, the Westsiders performed in the middle of Hilton Parkway to celebrate the renovation of Baltimore's most sinister stretch of asphalt.For decades, the 1.4-mile parkway between North and Edmondson avenues has been the city's most dangerous artery, the scene of more than 10 traffic deaths in the last 10 years.The road was so bad -- "Horrible, absolutely horrible," said one police officer -- that the city often simply closed it when it rained.

The Washington Nationals finally have an owner. Let the rivalry begin! Please? Orioles and Nats? Help us out. And make it better than the rivalries going on now: biggest nose dive in attendance, and most fan animosity about the ownership situation. The resolution of the almost-criminally mishandled Nationals power transfer couldn't have come at a better time, with both teams' turnstiles grinding to a halt. Maybe now, everybody can simply focus on making the products on the fields - at Camden Yards and RFK - better.

Hey, if George Steinbrenner can put the entire Yankees organization on public notice two weeks into the season, we're entitled to dream about October, aren't we? Right here, in the baseball capital of America, the Baltimore-Washington metropolitan area, the one that could never, ever, in a million years, support two teams. Just to save you the trouble of turning to the standings inside, the Orioles are in first place in the AL East, thanks to the sweep of the Yankees at Camden Yards and the Blue Jays' loss in Texas yesterday.

Lester Bergenstein, a Baltimore resident who hails from New York (aka the driving capital of the world), has a complaint about driving on Hilton Parkway between Edmondson Avenue and North Avenue.More precisely, his complaint is about driving on the parkway when there is an accident, which seems all too often. The police, he says, are too quick to close both directions of the parkway, even for the most minor accidents."I know how to get through, but many people don't know how to snake their way around Bloomsbury or Poplar Grove streets," Mr. Bergenstein said.
