The sky isn't quite falling yet, but gambling casinos are folding like battered beach chairs in Atlantic City ( "Baltimore's casino reality," Aug. 26) It seems any lingering mention of Atlantic City evolving into an East Coast version of Las Vegas has been carried away in the Atlantic Ocean surf. I can remember 30 years ago when everyone spoke of the new gambling mecca in Atlantic City as the shining star of the Mid-Atlantic region. My, how the supposedly mighty have fallen.

OK, so you're hungry and rooting around in the fridge, or maybe the pantry, and find something. You think you've stumbled upon it - What's this? Chocolate? Yes! - when it dawns on you: You can't remember buying the bar. Or when you first opened it. What now? Should you eat it or toss it? What if it's milk? Or medication? How long will that stuff keep, and what's at stake after you pass that point? For many things, your budget and personal preference can dictate how often you replace them, but for others, it's a safety issue.

HOUSTON -- With Steve Johnson going on the disabled list and right fielder Nick Markakis away from the team due to the death of his paternal grandmother, the Orioles decided to call up outfielder Xavier Avery to give the team some bench depth on Thursday. Avery did not play in the game and was optioned back to Triple-A Norfolk after the game. The team is expected to call up a reliever Friday. Avery, a 23-year-old left-handed hitter with speed, batted .192 in 15 games at Triple-A Norfolk after hitting .300 in 39 games at Double-A Bowie this year.

LOS ANGELES -- To an African woman living in a remote village, everything is precious: a cup, a pencil, a length of twine. But above all, tablets that can save a sick child's life. Most African mothers will trudge miles and wait hours in hopes of obtaining such medicine. That's why it is so dismaying that Sanofi-Aventis may soon destroy 10 million doses of the world's best malaria medicine - a drug that quickly slays lethal strains that still claim 1 million African children every year.

Frank Warren, keeper of the country's secrets, is never alone. What started three years ago as an unknown community art project, has become one of the most popular blogs and cathartic outlets for anyone anywhere who has a secret. At his Germantown home, Warren receives about 1,000 weekly PostSecrets -- anonymous cards that fuse confessionals with artwork. Of the 200,000 secrets he has read and saved, many appear in four PostSecret books and in exhibits -- Baltimore's American Visionary Art Museum will display select PostSecrets through next year.

THE 45-year-old Illinois woman told a frank story about how she squandered a significant inheritance with addictions to alcohol and uncontrolled spending. She ran up credit card bills entertaining friends at restaurants, drinking and compulsively buying books. After various 12-step programs, the loss of a lover because of the spending and a personal bankruptcy filing, she is applying for jobs and getting back on track. But days after we spoke, she called back to ask that I not print her name.

How long will condiments last in the refrigerator? I searched the Web to determine what are the shelf lives of ketchup, mustard and mayonnaise. All three products have high acid contents, and it is their acidity that keeps bacterial growth at bay. Heinz recommends that you use its ketchup within 15 months of its manufacture, regardless of where you store it. To determine when it was made, decode the product code on the package. For example, in FR6B08, "FR" refers to the production location, "6" represents the year of production (i.e.

Books collect dust. People collect books. At least, some people do. I've been one of them for about 45 years. Of course, if my wife has anything to do with it, I've squeezed my last volume onto a shelf. "One more book, and I'll call the folks in the white coats and tell 'em we have a case of bibliomania on our hands," she is fond of saying. We are just about out of shelf space. It has become necessary for me to cram new acquisitions horizontally into those little spaces between the vertically arranged books and the shelves above.

When the Spice Girls stormed America's shores in 1996 with their pop confection "Wannabe" and chants of "Girl power!" no one could have predicted how big their careers would get or how sturdy their roles in popular culture would be more than a decade later. Pop groups such as 'N Sync and Backstreet Boys may have sold more records, but they never made a movie like the Spice Girls and they certainly don't have any United Nations ambassadors for good will among them. Their combination of pop hits, cartoonish personalities and clever marketing made the Spice Girls more than a successful pop group -- they were a global phenomenon in the late '90s, selling more than 55 million albums, breaking all sorts of British chart records and taking their song "2 Become 1" to No. 1 in 53 countries.

THE MEEK MAY inherit the earth one day, but the weak will never dominate the NFL playoffs. To wit: Does anybody outside of Denver really want to see the Broncos in the postseason tournament after they lost by four touchdowns in Kansas City? Can anyone take even another hour of Mike Holmgren's terminally soft Seattle Seahawks, who showed they have no heart for the playoffs in a 37-14 loss to the New York Jets at the Meadowlands? Why would anyone believe the Minnesota Vikings could actually beat a good team in a game that counts?

SYDNEY, Australia - James Carter listened for boos and jeering whistles when he was introduced to the crowd before the final of the men's 400-meter hurdles at Olympic Park last night. "I was hoping I wouldn't hear anything," he said. He didn't. The packed house of 110,000 at Olympic Stadium barely responded to his name. It meant he had survived the biggest mistake of his life - barely. "I just don't want people to have that as their image of me," said Carter, a Baltimore native who went to Mervo.
