Not in an office, mind you, but right in the halls, where she stands for the C-SPAN cable station interviewing Congress members during their votes on legislation.So as I sit at my desk at 3: 40 p.m. Friday, my eyes fix on the CNN television footage showing the Capitol steps emblazoned with the logo: "Breaking News."As is newsroom tradition, reporters and editors have gathered around the television, arms folded, watching the drama play out. Two Capitol police officers have been shot in the halls, along with a female civilian.

It was his wife, Dana, who was at a hospital in New Jersey. She had just given birth to their son, Daniel, and wanted to let Flacco know that both she and their second child were safe and sound. The cellular reception in the locker room, deep in the bowels of M&T Bank Stadium, was spotty, but Flacco heard exactly what he needed before jogging out on the field for pregame warmups.

Baltimore needs a town meeting, and it's getting one this Saturday from noon until 5 p.m. at the Baltimore Convention Center. You might want to stop by and bring your sense of future with you. What comes out of this town meeting will go a long way toward making Baltimore a better city, particularly for its children. The event is called the Opportunity Summit, and it presents a chance for the citizens of all social classes to have a say in where this city goes in the next 10 years. Baltimoreans will pick a new mayor in September, but Saturday's summit might be just as important because it will set priorities that the next mayor won't be able to ignore.

At one point during the three years that Harbor Bank of Maryland operated under heightened federal scrutiny, a regulator asked CEO Joseph Haskins Jr. why he stuck it out. Why not just retire? But for Haskins, one of the founders of the Baltimore bank in 1982, walking away was not an option. "I've grown up not running from a challenge, but facing it head on and looking to find a solution," said Haskins, 65. "And so, it isn't in my DNA to wilt under pressure. In fact, it only strengthens my resolve.
