At our monthly breakfast gathering at the big round table by the kitchen at Jimmy's, the Fells Point diner, someone remarked that Ron Matz, the affable WJZ-TV reporter who frequently reports from there, looked dapper as a pallbearer in a black wool topcoat and dark suit. "I'm practicing for my next job, after I retire," Mr. Matz said. "I'm going to be a greeter at Sol Levinson. " Someone went a step further and suggested that Mr. Matz, a longtime Baltimore broadcaster, might finally make his fortune in retirement by anchoring live cablecasts of funerals from the Sol Levinson & Bros.

"Quest for Camelot" is more than the name of a movie - it's a mystery from history.For more than a thousand years, stories have been told of brave King Arthur and his courageous knights of the Round Table. All that time, people have been searching western England for Arthur's castle, Camelot.Some historians believe Arthur is just a legend that grew out of an even older myth. But others think Arthur dates back to the 5th century, when the Roman Empire was falling apart.Britain, no longer protected by Rome, faced invasions.

It has been said that John F. Kennedy would listen to the score of the Broadway musical Camelot envisioning that his Washington would rise to the noblest deeds of the Arthurian legend. Well, Arthur's round table did come to America - not during the New Frontier, but 35 years later under a new name, globalization. And like Camelot, globalization lasted for one brief, shining moment. Globalization of the 1990s was a direct consequence of the fall of communism. It promised that in a world not divided by ideology, a liberal capitalist system could function globally and lift living standards around the world.

In some ways, it is nothing like lunch at the Algonquin Round Table with Dorothy Parker, Robert Benchley and company back in the '20s and early '30s.Lunch in those Prohibition days was booze disguised in tea cups, plus club sandwiches and maybe half a pack of Camels. The New Yorker magazine was born at the Algonquin Hotel's round table, they say, and it was there that Miss Parker, on hearing of Calvin Coolidge's death, asked, "How can they tell?"In other ways the lunch scene at the Royalton Hotel, diagonally across from the Algonquin on West 44th Street, near Fifth Avenue, is every bit as clubby as the old round table.

Philadelphia has John F. Lawrence, Mass., has John J. Baltimore has Eddie. Much of the country, it seems, has members of what is known as the Maple/Linder team. They party together at Elaine's on Manhattan's Upper East Side. They show up at conferences together to opine about how best to fight crime. They call each other by their first names. They are the New York Road Show - police commanders who have broken away from the New York Police Department to pursue their careers elsewhere and, along the way, have spread a model of policing that is akin to a religion.

Almost everyone knows a snippet of Dorothy Parker's tart poetry. Her advice to the lovelorn, for example: "Candy is dandy But liquor is quicker." Or, perhaps ... "Men seldom make passes At girls who wear glasses." Lots of people love the short stories by the brilliant, brittle and erratic Mrs. Parker of the Algonquin Round Table, stories like "The Big Blonde," "A Telephone Call," "Diary of a New York Lady" and a couple dozen more. Lots of her admirers can recite great swaths of her longer poems, such as "Resume."
