Rob Burnett is lying on a training table with ice bags on his right knee, a grin on his face and another grueling workout behind him. His mind races forward, to the days when he can line up at left defensive end, fire out of his stance, take on a blocker and get after an opposing quarterback.To the days when he can feel whole again.For now, Burnett must concentrate on putting his football future back together, one tedious step at a time. Burnett is preparing for his eighth NFL season, yet he has never known an off-season like this one, mainly because it began Oct. 13. That night, Burnett tore up his knee while running on the RCA Dome turf in Indianapolis.

VALLAURIS, France -- When Jean-Claude "Baby Doc" Duvalier was driven from power in Haiti eight years ago, he and his family slid into luxurious exile here on the sunny Cote d'Azur, the sort of place where an out-of-work dictator could spend a lifetime of accumulated wealth.They had a hillside villa with gated privacy and sumptuous views of the Mediterranean Sea.They ate at the best restaurants, where Mr. Duvalier's "passion for the table," as one chef put it, was appreciated almost as much as his ability to pick up the $1,000 checks for his entourage.

With Maryland's proposed licensing fees for growing and selling medical marijuana among the highest in the nation, some advocates warn that the steep costs could drive off applicants, crippling the nascent program and limiting access to treatment for tens of thousands of state residents. Prospective medical marijuana growers would have to pay $125,000 a year for a two-year license, while dispensaries would have to pay $40,000 a year, according to the recommendations of a state commission.

Don't look now, but the Maryland General Assembly is mulling over legislation to require motorists to put on their headlights every time they they turn on their windshield wipers.The bill, which would make it illegal to drive through an August sun shower with lights off, was proposed by Sen. William Amoss, who thinks the legislation should be approved because "it's a good bill."There is plenty room for argument on that score -- weighing, for instance, the safety benefits of headlights in the fog to, say, the increased risk posed by drivers fumbling to turn on the lights, flip on the wipers, turn down the radio and the watch the road.

CITY COLLEGE is reclaiming its stature as an incubator for college-bound students. This is an achievement to be savored, not just by the public high school's visionary leaders and high-profile alumni, but by all who care about the future of Baltimore. Excellent public schools give families reasons to stay in the city. And families with children aspiring to higher education form a core population that Baltimore should be fighting to keep. To restore academic prestige that had waned, Principal Joseph Wilson and the school's extended family held themselves and the students to high standards.

LET'S CALL THEM the "take it one step further" stories of 1998.The first is Gerard Shields' April 7 story on the Baltimore City Council passing a bill permitting the killing of vicious dogs. The headline read "euthanize," of course, but the meaning's the same: kill the ornery fleabags.Shields' article noted that 4th District Councilwoman Agnes Welch was bitten by a dog several weeks before she proposed the legislation. Welch cited the need "to protect our children, our seniors and all of our citizens from the vicious behavior of dogs."

The Ravens wouldn't be the leading candidate to sign soon-to-be released Daunte Culpepper, but they have not eliminated the possibility of adding the three-time Pro Bowl quarterback, a league source said. Because the Ravens are committed to Steve McNair as their starter, it's unsure whether Culpepper would want to come here since he might have an opportunity to compete for a starting job elsewhere, the source added. Culpepper, who is expected to be cut by the Miami Dolphins, has been linked to the Ravens because McNair is 34 and backup Kyle Boller is only signed through this season.

With tales of the world's woes grabbing too many headlines this summer, it might be remedial to consider the subject of happiness. We might not agree on how to define it, but we want it. Even our Declaration of Independence asserts that pursuing happiness is an unalienable right. And so off we go, chasing that subjective and capricious state of being that teases us into thinking it can be ours through chance and circumstance. Apparently, plenty of people have achieved a high level of happiness, if you believe studies that claim to have examined the subject closely.
