For Stephen Weinstein, the southernmost blocks of Calvert, Light and Charles streets on the outskirts of the glittering Inner Harbor are a diamond in the rough, an under-appreciated jewel of commercial real estate.Encore Books recently opened on the corner of Calvert and Lombard streets as proof that the area remains viable for retail. Nearby, the 28-story addition to the IBM building and the construction of the 30-story Commerce Place tower add to the area's sense of potential.But a short distance away the Rage, a bar that had male strippers as its featured performers last week, betrays a more tawdry side of commerce along these corridors.

CHICAGO - In Butch Cassidy and the Sundance Kid, an upstart member of the Hole in the Wall Gang challenges Butch for leadership, and they agree to settle the matter with knives. But before they can start, Butch, played by Paul Newman, raises the question of what rules should apply. "Rules?" exclaims his incredulous rival. "In a knife fight?" The sneaky Butch, catching his opponent off-guard, then delivers a well-placed kick that leaves the poor guy unable to continue. Some things are just not meant to be done in strict accordance with regulations.

Around Baltimore it's somethingwe mostly read about: sunlit icecrusting each tree's tiniest twigs.It seemed the whole back yardhad been dipped in candy syrup.We tried to get the glitterand rattle to settle in our minds:we thought back to Frost's "Birches,"shiny husks of seventeen-year locusts,the tat-tat of fat white knitting needles,and then it happened:over the slope-shoulder of the dead treewe'd propped against the wallas we struggled to get it downstairsand out the door -- no "coffin niches"in these nineteen-forties houses --we saw, through the landing's east window,all the naked trees outside alivewith colored lights!

Today's blue-rinsed club ladies still had their natural hair color the last time blue had any kind of fashion cachet. With the exception of former first lady Barbara Bush, who tried to give it a boost, blue has been the color of the fashion-impaired and bus drivers.This spring, blue is back like a bolt.Ralph Lauren cuts it clean and clear, in all shades of sea, sky and jewels in an icy shantung trench, sapphire leather jeans or an aqua jersey slink. Miuccia Prada's little-boy-blue leather jacket makes the cover of W, the glossiest of the glossies.

If our kids could design the cities of our future -- the cities they'll have to live in -- what would those communities look like?Would our children select the world of spread-out superhighways, strip malls, office parks, the suburban cul-de-sacs and big shopping malls we've been so busy constructing for the last generation?Or would the next generation go for an ultra-high-tech world -- modernistic megastructures, high-speed vehicles, universal cellular-phone connections, dispersed population centers?

Until fall, just color me Calvin Calvin Klein has done it again. His makeup line, called Calvin Klein "color," is right on for summer. "Uncomplicated, natural and inspired by fashion" is how Klein describes his latest shades. He has drawn from his women's fashion collection to create new tints for eyes, lips, cheeks and body, too. This season's makeup palette mimics what he showed on the runway: cassis sheer silks and aubergine organzas. Both reflect the idea of deep color paired with transparent texture.

Blue is the color most pursued by gardeners. Yet blue is a mysterious hue with as many personalities as uses. Blue flowers can be tranquil or melancholy, dark as denim or light as the sky, restful as twilight or restless as the sea. They blur boundaries, suggest distant horizons and make gardens look larger.But above all, blue flowers are sought-after."Blue is always the most popular color because it goes with everything," theorizes garden store owner Kathy Tracey. "And because it seems hard to find."
