THE CRITICS WISH us to unwrite what has already been written. Lawrence Bell never had trouble paying his bills, and Carl Stokes never dropped out of college. And so on. As though unwriting it would un-do the acts themselves. As though none of this connects with the business of running the city of Baltimore."You got any secrets you want to get off your chest?" Martin O'Malley was asked the other day."No," he said, laughing. "I pay my bills on time, and I have my college diploma."He sounded like a man delighted to be standing out of the line of fire.

Debbie Maiste starts most of her days by facing hordes of hungry teen-agers. They fill up the Einstein Brothers Bagel shop she runs near the corner of Falls Road and Cold Spring Lane and grab a few bites of breakfast before heading over to Poly/Western high schools. Sharing a small space with masses of spirited high schoolers doesn't faze Maiste. "They're kids," she said. "If they get too loud, or if they are late for school, I just walk over and give them my Mom-glare." The Mom-glare, Maiste told me, usually brings the kids around.

Rick was one of the few straight men in America who had no problem admitting he liked show tunes. In fact, he loved them. He would sit there in the office all day and sing. He had a good voice, and a rotating repertoire, so he didn't repeat himself. I didn't mind. I like show tunes. It was like sitting next to a radio. Occasionally, though, he would burst forth with lyrics that were completely inappropriate for his gender, and for tender ears. That funny, blue line from A Chorus Line would shock us all into laughter.

Boston.-- We are entering one of those dangerous moments in our country's history. I am not talking about the mounting deficit or the ongoing crisis in the Middle East. The scariest fact of the hour is that the commander-in-chief of the United States of America is about to boot up and log-on to the computer world.Poppy at the keyboard? A mouse in the House? Mr. Bush as a beginner in BASIC? George and the user-friendly software? Do I see another children's book in the making or a horror story?

REP. ELIJAH Cummings, Baltimore's 7th District congressman, finds himself talking to a lot more people these days. Ascending to the chairmanship of the Congressional Black Caucus will do that for you. On Thursday afternoon around 4:30, Cummings found himself in a conference call with members of the Trotter Group, an organization of some of the finest newspaper columnists in the land who happen to be black. Of course, being chairman of the CBC means you have to be Democrat and liberal.
