A charming little neighborhood restaurant doesn't have to be in a charming little neighborhood. A case in point is Roma's Cafe, a modest Italian eatery sandwiched between a Precision Tune and a Jiffy Lube on busy York Road. The restaurant shares a parking lot with the auto shops, but the scent of motor oil that greets you as you leave your car is no match for the welcoming aroma of garlic emanating from the cheerily lit restaurant. Though it's not easily visible from the road, Roma's has obviously found a following since it opened in June 2004.

Roma L. Klar, a former secretary who worked in the White House during the administrations of Franklin D. Roosevelt and Harry S. Truman and ended her career with the Peace Corps, died Friday of heart failure at Brightview Assisted-Living in Catonsville. She was 98. Roma Lee Simmers, the daughter of farmers, was born and raised in Nowata, Okla., where she graduated in 1928 from Copan High School. After graduating in 1930 from Chillicothe Business College in Chillicothe, Mo., Mrs. Klar moved to Washington and went to work as a secretary for the federal government.

USTI NAD LABEM, Czech Republic -- The neighbors wanted the Gypsies out. But city officials in Usti nad Labem couldn't just evict them. So they stationed police and dogs in the complex of cold-water flats that house the Gypsies.Then they had an idea: Why not isolate the Gypsies by building a wall?But Usti nad Labem is close to the German border and just north of Terezin, the site of a notorious Potemkin Jewish ghetto created by the Nazis in an attempt to conceal the Holocaust. Here in the Sudetenland, a region once heavily populated by ethnic Germans and annexed by Hitler in 1938, the idea of building walls around a "problematic" minority rings disturbing bells in memories, and the Usti wall has become an international controversy -- and a black eye for the Czech Republic.

NEW YORK -- When the news broke this summer that a Haitian immigrant had been sodomized with a toilet plunger by New York City police officers in Brooklyn, several Big Apple reporters picked up the phone to call Roma Cedeno for a comment.It was a natural thought. In April, Roma's 16-year-old son, Kevin Cedeno, was fatally shot -- in the back -- by a New York City officer in northern Manhattan's Washington Heights section. Even in New York, the case stood out. It was a five-alarm fire, a bright white blaze that attracted all the Big Apple moths familiar to readers of "Bonfire of the Vanities": the revenge-seeking ministers, the incendiary politicians, the tabloid arsonists.

MITROVICA, Serbia-Montenegro -- Roma rights groups say that up to 31 Roma, often called Gypsies, have been killed by diseases brought on by lead poisoning in Kosovo refugee camps, a problem that grew acute 6 1/2 years ago. That was when the U.N. mission that controls this province set up three camps in the northern part of Mitrovica for Roma who were displaced when ethnic Albanians took their homes across town at the end of the Kosovo war in 1999....

KOSICE, Slovakia -- A case making its way through the courts in Slovakia is giving a new sense of hope to Europe's most persecuted minority. But it also could be the catalyst that unleashes the Roma people's many decades of pent-up frustration. The number of Roma (Gypsies) in the European Union roughly tripled in January, when Bulgaria and Romania joined the EU, making the outcome of this case consequential for all Europeans - as it should be for people everywhere who care about justice.

Tony Roma, 78, whose casual rib joint became an international restaurant empire after it caught the attention of a Texas financier in the 1970s, died Friday of lung cancer at a hospice in Hemet, Calif. Mr. Roma opened his first barbecue restaurant in North Miami, Fla., in the early 1970s, according to his company's Web site. The restaurant originally specialized in steaks and burgers, but that changed when Mr. Roma and his chef decided to offer barbecued ribs as a weekend special. The ribs proved so popular that they came to dominate the menu, and Mr. Roma's restaurants eventually opened across the United States, in Japan, England and Canada.

It's hard to miss them - bright flashing lights, one red, one white - next to the awning out front of Roma's Cafe. At first glance, it could be an ambulance parked there. But getting noticed is the name of the game for this restaurant in Cockeysville, which has been open since August. Roma's does not face York Road. Rather it is tucked inelegantly behind a tune-up shop and an oil-change facility. The flashing lights are designed simply to catch people's attention as they zoom up and down Cockeysville's main drag.

—The Roma have been persecuted across Europe for centuries. Now Roma (often called Gypsies, a term they dislike) face a form of discrimination unseen in Europe since World War II: group evictions and expulsions from several European democracies of men, women and children on the grounds that they pose a threat to public order. This month, France began to carry out plans to expel all non-French Roma, implicating them as a group in criminal activity, without any legal process to determine whether individuals have committed any crime or pose a threat.

I am growing Roma tomatoes in my home garden and plan to use them in soups, stews and chili this winter. The meat is firm with a small amount of water compared to a regular tomato. I freeze regular tomatoes (after blanching and removing the skin) for future use and I plan on freezing the Romas. What is the best technique? I love Romas, also called plum tomatoes. I usually freeze a bunch of them every year. They're fabulous in sauces, soups and stews. Frankly, they're better for cooking than globe tomatoes because they're "meatier" and don't exude so much liquid.

BRATISLAVA, Slovakia -- The millions of Gypsies of Eastern Europe have emerged as great losers from the overthrow of communism and the end of the rigid controls that it imposed on daily life.Many of the economic and social protections that Gypsies enjoyed in Hungary, Romania and Czechoslovakia collapsed, permitting a revival of the open prejudice and persecution that have marked the history of the Roma, as Gypsies prefer to call themselves, since they first reached Europe in the 11th century after a long migration from the Indian subcontinent.

Judging from David Mamet's "Glengarry Glen Ross," the generation of salesmen that has come after Willy Loman doesn't believe that being well liked is what counts.What counts is closing the sale -- period. Closing it any way you can. If that means acting friendly, so be it. If it means using outright deceit, that's OK, too.One of the best scenes in Theatre Hopkins' production of this indictment of the real estate industry comes when hotshot salesman Richard Roma joins forces with his mentor, Shelly "the Machine" Levene, to hoodwink a client.
