New Year's Resolutions and Predictions, economically packaged in a single offering:The government will issue only one economic report each month, lumping all the bad news into one massive statistical release that no one will be able to understand. Because of the material's complexity, TV reports will simply display a "thumbs up" or "thumbs down" graphic for a few seconds each month. Even unemployed consumers will feel better and go out and spend lots of money. There will never be another recession.

Regardless of the outcome of the latest labor dispute at the Port of Baltimore, the strike called yesterday by unionized cargo clerks serves to underscore the port's image as a place where smooth operations take a back seat to bad labor-management relations. Some port observers argue that the negative view of the port portrayed in a front-page article in the Wall Street Journal yesterday is out of date, that the atmosphere has improved significantly. Try explaining that to shippers who today aren't sure whether they can get their goods unloaded, and for whom every delay is costly.

A fragile accord with leaders of Maryland's Native American community has come unglued, threatening the state's plans for returning some of the Indian remains in its archaeological collection for reburial.Indian leaders say they had too little input -- or none -- into proposed rules to put into effect a 1992 law permitting "repatriation" of human bones to lineal descendants, or to groups that can show a "cultural affiliation" with them. The rest would be held by the state and made available for scientific study.

Once again, state officials are searching for a new executive director to run the Maryland Port Administration. Only this time, there's no sense of urgency or impending doom. Adrian G. Teel has helped reverse the port's bleak situation; his successor will have the far easier task of continuing the momentum already set in motion.When Mr. Teel took the job in 1991, his forte was finance and management. He cut the size of the bureaucracy, reorganized, boosted the port's marketing and started talking with labor leaders.
