He was the Pied Piper, playing a tune too good to be true. Michael Milken led corporate raiders, companies, investment houses, mutual fund firms, savings and loans and investors down a fanciful late-1980s road to near ruin.If you invested in a junk bond mutual fund the past couple of years, you know that 1990 has been a disaster for your money. If you worked at a company that was ripped apart through a junk bond takeover or restructuring, you know what it's like to fear for your job. If you're nervous about recession, you can be sure that it will be deeper due to the junk bond fallout.

It's been four months since Howard Stern, the self-proclaimed King of All Media, abandoned terrestrial radio, but the personalities who sought to fill his shoes are still struggling to find their footing. Audience ratings released last week for the first three months of the year show dismal numbers for most of Stern's successors in morning drive-time on terrestrial radio. One, the former rock singer David Lee Roth, who never took to his new gig and admitted as much on the air, was fired, and replaced last week in seven major markets -- including New York, Boston and Philadelphia -- by a duo more in tune with Stern's shock-jock persona, Opie and Anthony.

Tony Fernandez remembers boyhood trips from his rowhouse on 25th Street in Baltimore to the lush waters of the Eastern Shore. There was seaweed then, which disappeared with the years and the filth. But a name was born out of the disappearance."Captain Seaweed!"This little kindergarten boy utters the cry the other day, his arms wide open and his voice rising a delighted octave above falsetto. love you."And the captain, once known as Tony Fernandez, a man who hit people very hard for a living, bends down and becomes the gentlest of characters, Captain Seaweed.

This week's Mason-Dixon poll managed to achieve the impossible: it pleased both gubernatorial candidates.Republican Ellen Sauerbrey (42 percentage points) sees it as a statistical dead heat with momentum on her side; Democrat Parris Glendening (48 percent) sees it as a steady lead that is fast approaching the magical 50 percent mark that assures victory.In both cases, there are grounds for serious concern. On balance, though, the Glendening people have more to worry about.Their traditional Democratic base in the suburbs is eroding in the face of voter discontent and Ms. Sauerbrey's alluring Pied Piper tune of lower taxes.

When board members of the Columbia Orchestra hired Jason Love to conduct the ensemble two years ago, they knew they were getting one of the area's strongest proponents of contemporary music. Love's extensive experience with the avant-garde paid off handsomely Saturday evening when the orchestra presented American composer John Corigliano's "Pied Piper Fantasy" as the centerpiece of its spring concert at Howard Community College's Smith Theatre. Composed for James Galway, the Irish flutist and box office superstar, the "Pied Piper" is a flute concerto crammed full of dissonant, highly pictorial musical effects.

AUGUSTA, Ga. -- All those power-conscious spectators, enthralled with men who can make a golf ball travel long distances, follow around after John Daly as if he's an authentic Pied Piper. He has a crowd appeal that is magnetic, considering the fascination that goes with seeing shots that more befit the Aberdeen Proving Ground, where the military tests explosives, than the sedate setting of the Masters tournament.When Daly puts the face of a Whale Driver against a Maxfli golf ball, there's a cracking detonation and then you follow a speck in the sky that threatens to accelerate into orbit.

WASHINGTON -- The Bush administration's disenchantment with its one-time favorite Iraqi client, Ahmad Chalabi, has centered on the explosive allegation that he and his associates may have forwarded highly classified U.S. information to the fundamentalist Islamist government in Iran. Specifically, Mr. Chalabi and his cohorts are accused of informing Tehran that the United States had broken the communications code of Iran's intelligence service. Mr. Chalabi dismissed the charges as part of a CIA plot to discredit him. The CIA has long suspected Mr. Chalabi's motives, and many analysts resent his ability to pass off speculation as fact, even over the advice of genuine experts within the U.S. government.

A correspondent writes: In the spring of 1970, my fifth-grade students in Carney Elementary School decided to perform The Pied Piper of Hamlin for the whole school at the end of the year. On one side of the school there is a steep hill rising about 15 feet and topped by a grove of trees. I had the brilliant idea that this would be a wonderful setting for our play. The audience could sit at the bottom and watch the actors perform at the top. When the pied piper played his flute, the children would follow him and "disappear" into the woods.

Some day soon, the infamous Dr. B, the Zen Poet, the former litterateur Mr. Electric, will retire from Catonsville High School and become merely Gary Blankenburg again. Freed from the cult of his own personality, he will finger his stringy beard, pack up his pop art, take the stairs to the lobby downstairs and smoke his last cigar. He, of the hernia, the deviated septum, arthritic ankles, high blood pressure, cataracts, acid reflux, depression and tumors of the esophagus, will think it's time to fish.

When Kitty DeVincentis was a girl, her grandparents would give her a quarter to go to the movies as a treat. She spent 10 cents on the movie, 5 cents on popcorn and kept the extra dime to "splurge" on candy during the week.DeVincentis, who has five grand- children, ages 5 to 17, and owns the Pied Piper, a children's clothing shop in Cross Keys, doesn't balk at spending $70 on a Madame Alexander doll or $45 on a bathing suit for one of her grandchildren. She spends more on her grandchildren than her own grandparents did on her, but she doesn't mind.

The faces of the youngest members of a wedding party mirror the magic that the wise ones sometimes miss in the whirl. To the little ones, it is their day in a storybook world -- the bride is the beautiful princess who always smiles, the groom is strong and hTC brave, and the reception is a wonderland of treats and flowery fantasies.If they sometimes skip over the formalities and get up to a little mischief, who can fault them? Wide eyes, scrubbed faces and a dress-up demeanor are always forgiven.
