MARLYN PERRITT, Baltimore's recreation and parks director for seven years, never was a presence in this community or an advocate with an agenda for action. How she kept her job this long is as big a mystery as Mayor Kurt L. Schmoke's claim that "she did a wonderful job for the city and brought wonderful innovation to the department."By abruptly resigning last Friday, Ms. Perritt did the citizens of Baltimore City a favor. Her bizarre disappearance -- without even directly notifying the mayor -- gives Mr. Schmoke an ideal opportunity to find a top-notch manager to revamp and re-energize the badly demoralized parks operation.

Leaders of Baltimore's municipal unions -- whose future rank and file members will come under a new residency requirement effective July 1 -- are "appalled" and "upset" that Marlyn J. Perritt, director of recreation and parks, was seen last week commuting to her job from Prince George's County.Union officials say that Ms. Perritt's conduct demonstrates the hypocrisy of residency requirements. Some say it demonstrates the need for even-handed enforcement of residency rules, while others contend it shows that such rules are unnecessary and unenforceable.

Each time you have cash to invest, you buy the best-performing fund of that period.Gerald W.
