I wish Marta Mossburg and the rest of her ignorant cronies at her right wing "think tank" (there's an ironic name for you, as all you have to do to join their "think tank" is to shut off your brain and stop thinking) would finally follow through on their empty threats and move out of Maryland completely ("Governor, don't tell us where to live," Nov. 9). Ms. Mossburg constantly threatens to leave forever, to "take her ball and go home" so to speak, but year after whining year, she and her right wing cohorts are still here, still whining every day about the supposed "free market" and how it will make everything wonderful and rosy.

The dark specks swirling around in big water-filled tanks at the Columbus Center hardly look like fish, much less the kings of the ocean. But from these tiny beginnings, a team of Maryland scientists hopes to unlock the secrets of "farming" Atlantic bluefin tuna, one of the most prized fish on the planet — and one of the most threatened. "For me, it's the Holy Grail," said Yonathan Zohar, a professor of marine biotechnology with the University of Maryland, Baltimore County and head of the aquaculture research center at the Institute for Marine and Environmental Technology at the Inner Harbor.

Another experiment in democracy bit the dust. President Chadli Benjedid's bold plan to introduce more real democracy in Algeria than any Arab state has known ended Sunday under the tracks of the tanks President Chadli himself sent into Algiers. Their mission was to destroy the movement that would have won the election that was just postponed, and that would in all probability have ended democracy itself.The arrest of Abbasi Madani, chief of the Islamic Salvation Front (FIS), his principal lieutenant, Ali Belhadj and hundreds (or thousands)

Baltimore's National Aquarium, facing the temporary closing next year of its two huge "ring tanks" during a major overhaul, will be moving nearly 2,000 fish into other exhibits but has not yet decided where to put its sharks, the attraction's director said yesterday.Since publication of an article in Sunday's editions of The Sun about the lengthy repair work, the aquarium has received hundreds of calls from people who were concerned that the whole facility might have to close. Director Nicholas Brown emphasized yesterday that not only will the aquarium remain open but that it also is "spending a million dollars on a replacement exhibit" -- a five-story-high laser show -- to be seen during the time of the repairs.

When she was a girl, Jackie Burson said, she fell under the spell of dolphins while watching them on TV. She visited aquariums and theme parks to see them perform incredible tricks. "I used to love dolphin shows, too," she hollered through a bullhorn at the Inner Harbor on Saturday. "They're fun. The dolphins like it. Everybody wins, right? Wrong! Keeping [dolphins] in captivity is exactly the same as keeping them in prison. " Burson, of Waldorf, was one of about 50 people who gathered near the National Aquarium to hold up signs, hand out leaflets and protest the attraction's continued ownership of eight bottlenose dolphins - and to urge the aquarium's management to release them to live in an oceanside sanctuary.

A week before the Polar Bear Plunge at Sandy Point State Park was canceled because of high winds and freezing temperatures, a hardy group of North County folks took their own dip into frigid water. On Jan. 18, some 15 members of Ravens Roost 99 plunged into a pool outside of A-Town Bar and Grille on Brick Store Road in Hampstead, where they meet each month. And like those who were scheduled to jump into the Chesapeake Bay, the Ravens Roost 99 men and women raised money for Special Olympics Maryland.

Most of the upgrades at the two-building BECO Towers complex in Owings Mills are pretty standard: new windows, functioning elevators, an updated heating and cooling system. Then there are the fish tanks. The roughly 1,000-gallon aquariums, which BECO Management installed last month in the lobbies of both Mill Run Circle buildings, cost about $100,000 each. They required the commercial real estate firm to reinforce the floor and replace its cleaning supplies with fish-friendly materials.

To lessen the sting of soaring gas prices, Thomas Addison has been fueling his Ford Explorer SUV a quarter-tank at a time. But with the price of gasoline topping $2 a gallon, he says, he can't go on. "I'm ready to trade the truck in for something that's good on gas," said Addison, 26, a grant processor for the federal government. "I can't afford to fill up" at a cost of $30, he said. While Addison and other motorists struggle to adjust to record-high prices, Maryland gas dealers complained yesterday that they're feeling the pain as much as - or even more than - consumers.

On the second day of the year, I stood naked above the tank of water saturated with Epsom salts, preparing to close myself into total darkness. In less than an hour, I would find myself in a drug-free altered state, feeling my body melt into the warmth and interviewing a vision of a woman playing the piano. I was in the home of artists and musicians Twig Harper and Carly Ptak, a West Baltimore rowhouse with shelves stacked high with books about the occult and psychology and a 9-foot-tall statue of a Yeti-like creature.

Baltimore housing officials have ended a short-lived program to label property inspectors as being in the “shark tank” or “crab barrel” based partly on how many citations they issue to property owners. Eric Booker, the assistant commissioner for code enforcement, announced the new ranking system to inspectors in an Aug. 29 email obtained by The Baltimore Sun. “It will highlight the top inspectors, the 'LEADERS', by category as well as the bottom dwellers, the 'LAGGARDS',” Booker wrote.
